Preferred Solution: Any software that automatically backups and synchronizes the data online?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I hope I'm better at explaining the question than I have been in constructing a search query to find what I'm after.

Perhaps 8-10 years ago, I routinely swept up the contents of my documents and other data folders onto DVD disks for backup. I have about 60 of them. For some time, I was using the free version of a database program that crawled CDs and DVDs, copying the folder and file names and then allowing me to search the database for a particular file or a file type and locate the disk it was on. I can't remember the name of the program now, but when I went looking for the paid version, I found that the software had been orphaned.

Does anyone happen to know of any current programs that would serve the purpose? All I can find is software targeted at music or video DVDs.

Thanks.

I'm trying to backup my new computer for the first time... Ive heard of doing it online as opposed to on your computer. I do not have an external hard drive, so this seemed like a viable option instead of taking up a bunch of memory doing it on the computer itself. Does anyone have any information?

A:Online backups?

There are a few services but all seem to have problems - as far as I have seen. Besides, a system image may take 10 to 40GBs and the line speeds will have a hard time to keep up with that.

I think you are much better off to invest $50 in a 500GB external disk. Imaging the system only makes sense if you do it frequently (at least once per week). And that is much easier with the disk.

I would be interested in people's views on on-line backups.

I am always keen to backup data, and of course by keeping my backups in the same house as my PC has inherent risks. But looking at online backups, I see other risks. For example, what if the backup company closes down, or lose my data.

A reviews for Mozy, one of the bigger organisations, says on of the 'cons' is that some users experience difficulty restoring their data, which to me sounds like a car with no wheels!

How can I trust that these companies can really deliever? I am willing to pay and have about 120Gb to keep backed up. (Sometimes I think a less risky strategy would be to buy two external hard drives with my backup on, keep one at a friends house and the other at home and swap them every week) to keep them fresh).

Any views?

hello,

I'd like to be able to go back to the state the computer was in before a program was installed. What is the easiest way to do that ? If it's a system restore point, does that really work or are there some residues that are left over from the installation process ? Can you name a restore point so that you can see what is the program you have installed ?

On another slightly unrelated matter I was wondering if it is possible to have a backup copy for some files, for each modification that was made to them (so that I can use a sort of ctrl+Z even if the document has been closed). Similarly, if it is an automated save, can I set a name for a particular save so that I know the progress I've made (for example, a comment such as 'added paragraph 3').
Thanks.

Tutorial that may help for System Restore.
System Restore

First questions yes and yes. Sometimes the restore points are named by install of software or a Windows Update.

If you installed software yesterday afternoon pick a restore from yesterday morning or earlier.
Installed 3 days ago? Go back 4-5 days if possible.

Make sure you checkmark where I circled yellow when this window opens during restore. This will give you a much larger list of restore points.

Hope that helps.

Hi folks, I got a question: about 3 months ago I bought a shiny 128 GB SSD in substitution of my old 500 GB system drive, so I reinstalled window 7 from scratch, having done all the automatic backups with the built in Windows Backup in G: and the manual ones in F: for doubled safety
Now I can declare my SSD safe, so I would love to free some space from G: (the backup drive): I want to delete the old and now useless system images, and to keep only the last backup period from a group of three for added safety.
Can I delete selectively those things, keeping only what I really need?

If you feel that you don't need them at all, you can delete them, but at the same time if your SDD crashes, some backups are necessary.

Am I missing something?


I doesn't clear out old backups, because as with most good backup programs, it works on the assumption that you might not always want to use the most recent one.

For example, let's say I have the following backups:November2010
October2010
September2010
August2010
Obviously, November2010 is my most recent, right? But let's for arguments sake says take in between the October and November backups, I installed a program (it doesn't matter which. Lets call it program ABC) In other words, program ABS exists in the November backup, but not in the October backup.

I later discover that program ABC is causing problems, and I want to remove it, but it's not allowing me to do so because normal uninstall doesn't work. I can't use the November backup, because program ABC will still be there.

So I restore from the October backup instead.

The same will also apply with normal data file. If a file that exists in the October backup was deleted BEFORE the November backup was made, the only way to recover it would be to use the October backup.

So, by preserving older backups, Windows Backup is increasing your chances of recovering files.

Hello!
I want to hear your opinion about the safest way to store backups of data. Let's take 3 mediums -- external USB3 HD, USB flash drives and DVDs. I personally stick to Verbatim DVD +RW. The backup costs about twice cheaper than USB3 flash drive (per GB). Though it's a little bit more hassle with the discs... As per external USB3 HD's... First of all, it's a little bit of an investment upfront. More importantly, what kinda bothers me a little is the notion that after all, a hard disk is a hard disk. It has mechanical parts, vacuum inside, integrated electronics. Too many things can go wrong and magically you can wake up some not so beautiful morning and your disk is dead!
Let's not discuss SSD's here please. They're still a little beyond my budget.

A:Help/advice for non-user data backups between system images

Registry is only an issue if you have updated it by installing an app or done a system tweak affecting it since you took the last image. The key to simplicity is keeping user data on a different drive and backing that up separately, as you've mentioned. Since there are are only a few steps to good "ready to go" imaging - once you've organized your system and data - using bats or scheduled tasks only adds to complexity and possible error. Using a simple checklist while performing the imaging/restore steps is all you need, if that.
The Programdata folder shouldn't be an issue for permanently installed apps. That data usually doesn't change after the app is installed, though I have one game that uses it for saved games. You really have to know where each app stores data, no way around that, but it's not hard to know.
The Users folder is another matter, and apps often put data there.
Doing "ready to go" restores really boils down to attention to detail in your initial data organization, and knowing which apps are storing data on the system drive, and where.
But every app I have that is data driven has a facility to backup the data elsewhere. So it's just a case of restoring it after the system restore.
Anything that can be directed to a non-system drive should be, but always keep in mind that apps and registry must be kept in synch. I do that by always imaging apps and registry together, meaning all are on the system drive. Games are an exception, but they ar... Read more

Hi there

This is my first posting.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop 5920G, it is about 4 years old with Vista Home Premium

I've used the installed Acer Erecovery backup program regularly when prompted by the application.
After the last backup all backup points has disappeared - it shows no backup points exist
Prior to this backup there were a number of points shown by the log.
The D data drive is about 1/3 full

As far as Acer goes my laptop dies not exist therefore I can't email their support site.

Looking at drive D there is a hidden folder: erData.
In a sub folder there is one call Images.This clearly holds all the backup files, date stamped over the life time of my machine.

I've tried Acer support but there is no way of posting a question since the site all revolves around current machines.

I've made a full backup using macruim Reflect (Lite).

Could anyone suggest what I can do to access these points please?
Or am I better to simply continue with Macrium?

Hi all,

I want to ask all MT users, which software they use to backup their system, specialy the people with SSD's since system restore points are disabled by default when you have an SSD and that's a big problem when you have problems with your system and you need to go back some hours/days.

Thanks
 

A:System Backups - Which software do you use?

Backup and restore is much better than no backups and auto-installed with Windows which does really help. If you want something a bit more powerful, you may be interested in Acronis True Image 2016 (it supports full disk image backup and restoring and also compatible with Windows 10).

Hi. I am trying to be more diligent about backing up my computer. I plan to store a back up of my files on both the cloud and on an external drive that is connected to my router via usb. So I found free software with good reviews to use as a program for backing up, AOMEI Backupper. Under their setting for backup, they have four different types of backups-
system backup (backup windows and create an image of system partition);
disk backup (backup hard disks to an image file);
partition backup (backup partitions or dynamic volumes to an image file);
file backup (easily backup files and folders to an image file). Now I completed the system backup, but then I realized I don?t really know if I need all of the other backup choices. So that?s my question, do I need all four of these types of backups, or is the system backup sufficient?

Hi everyone:

First let me share the bad experience that I had while using one of the major brands of software for the local backup -- Acronis True Image 2014. I purchased and was using their software since 2014. I set it up to make incremental backups of my local files to an external hard drive, as well as make an image of my disk C to another external hard drive. The settings in the program also allowed me to automatically remove old backups when space was needed.

This scheme seems to have worked until about a month ago when my external disk got filled up and I started seeing error messages of disk being full via the popup balloons. This infuriated me since the only reason I was using Acronis software was to make it clean up old backups in the first place. That was the first time that I posted a question on Acronis form, that went nowhere. (In that thread I also discovered that I couldn't delete old backups even manually.) So I thought, OK, obviously other users may not know what is wrong so I decided to contact Acronis tech support instead. Little did I know, that it actually cost $20 to contact their support about any issue after the initial 90 day period since the software was purchased. What?! That's right. You have to pay them to fix it I was so incensed by it that I even tweeted to Acronis, and got this response.

I've been (safely but foolishly ) running Win7 without a backup system for over a year on a new computer...but am finally getting off it. On the old XP system, I had a manual program that backed up with Verify new and changed files in their native file formats from just the folders I told it to into an external HDD. When I needed to restore, I went to the external drive in Windows Explorer and copied files back. Sadly I can't remember the name of the backup program, but need something similar to backup to a new ioSafe SoloPRO 2GB external drive.

I don't want a new fangled auto backup program because of the potential danger of leaving the external drive connected and turned on all the time. (I may set up an automated online "cloud" backup program in parallel for some files later, but as a photographer I have too many large files to shoot to the cloud).

For now I need a good basic backup program that Verifies and that's smart enough to grab the basic Windows files I need, like my Live email folders, and the specific folders I tell it to. Thoughts?

I'm a little confused between the two backups and don't see any tutorials that seem to explain the interaction (if there is any) between the backups I scheduled and the several image backups i have made.

I upgraded my laptop to win 7 about a month ago now. Back on XP I would run a full system backup once every three weeks and run differential backups (& a separate 'system' files backup) every day. Every couple months I would run an ASR backup because as best I can tell that was the only real full system backup. That is the ASR would let me buy a new hard disk, restore from the ASR and have my system back without installing any software etc.

Based on my understanding of windows 7, I thought I would carry that basic idea forward by setting up the scheduled backup including all three logical drives and checking the system image checkbox. Additionally I would occasionally run a separate image backup.

The first issue I have is that as I read the documentation, I should be able to keep several of the image backups because I am putting everything on a USB connected 2T drive (I'm using about 70-80G on the laptop 250G drive). I ran the first image backup after installing win 7 with all current hotfixes and a couple programs as a base (e.g. winzip, acrobat, and an editor). But when I had installed some more software and wanted to do an image backup before trying to install SQL Server 2000 developer, it overwrote that base image backup.

If you create a separate system image using the method in the tutorial below, then it creates a new full system image each time you do. The best way to keep multiple system images using this method would be to rename the current WindowsImageBackup folder before creating a new one. This system image is saved separate than the one created below in a scheduled backup.Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
You could also include creating a system image in a scheduled backup like in the tutorial below. You can change the maximum space used for system images on the drive letter you are saving the Windows Backup to by changing the maximum space used by System Protection for the same drive letter. This is the same setting. The larger the maximum space, the more separate system images that could be saved.Backup User and System Files
Go ahead and read through the tutorials above, and please feel free to post back with any questions you may have.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

WinXP SP3, Google Chrome 29.0.1547.66 m, AMD Sempron LE-1200 Sparta, 2.11Ghz, 960MB RAM
I tried to uninstall, reinstall Adobe flash player, chrome but to no avail. I think it's an overheating issue but I don't know how to read the figures from CPUID Hardware Monitor & Core Temp (Screenshot http://i44.tinypic.com/291nq0i.jpg ). I've disabled "Hardware Acceleration" on Chrome and Flash Player. Fans are running but I couldn't find any software to read the temperature of Hard drive or Processor as the ones available doesn't support the above processor. I'd appreciate if anyone could help me with this as the restart happens every 5-20mins (sometimes even during a reboot). I couldn't find any google chrome crash report although it's enabled. I also tried to disable (and uninstall) manually installed adobe player & use inbuilt adobe player in Chrome to isolate the issue but it doesn't work at all. I have installed HijackThis but I don't know how to read or use the log files. Please Help!!!

Hello,

Itís been many years since Iíve encountered virus/spyware problems but my computer finally caught something and Iím planning on reformatting (thatís what I get for not having any AV). Luckily, I still have access to all my data so can backup everything thatís important. However, itís gotten me thinking about the value of the data on my computer. Iíve got the last ten years of my life recorded and Iíd like to ensure that I donít loose that due to virus or hard drive failure.

Once I am done reformatting, Iím planning on keeping my data on a separate HD from my OS/software. The main reason for this is so that I can make an image of the OS/software HD but I was wondering if separating the data from the software will provide any significant protection to the data from viral corruption?

Thanks in advance!

Hi All,
I'm trying to use Message Analyzer to show captured traffic.
I see a difference with Wireshark about Base64 messages; i.e. if you analyze an http traffic with basic authentication, Wireshark show the original Base64 data and then the decoded text data.
It is possible to do the same with Message Analyzer?
Thanks

Hello All,

I have a doubt on excel, please share your ideas for the below mentioned query:
First of all, I have created New Worksheet & saved as "MAIN" in different location. I have the sub-ordinates of 15 members, who work on their excel sheet with different location.

Here, i would like to copy some selected contents or copy several columns from their worksheet to the "MAIN" worksheet. I used to do it manually. Now, my question is that is there any other way to sort this automatically?

I had tried by applying some formulas, but it worked only for a single person. But i required for all 15 members data to be copied at once.

Thanks,
Kit

A:Online data back ups?

I use Carbonite. Basic plans start at $59/year. For that, you get unlimited automatic backups that work in the background so your computer won't be slowed down while using it. The data is encrypted before it leaves the computer (even Carbonite personnel can't access it) and is transmitted to and from your computer via a secure (https) connection. You can access your data from any computer at any time. It also has thirty day versioning (it keeps any deleted or changed files for thirty days before deleting them). More expensive plans have more features.

The downsides are data transfer is slow so a 24/7 broadband connection is recommended and it cannot be used to store data that isn't on your computer. The slow data transfer rate is only a problem for the initial upload but, once that is finished (it can days or even weeks for the initial upload), it really isn't a problem.

A word on archival. It is a very bad idea to store data in only one place, be it on a HDD in your computer or in cloud storage. At the very, very least, each piece of data should be duplicated in at least one other place different from the original with at least one copy stored locally and one offsite. I always recommend storing one backup copy off the computer but still easily accessed, such as in a different place at home where the computer is, and one copy offsite, such as in a desk at work, at a neighbor's home, in a bank safety deposit box, or in a paid online backup service.

I was doing routine computer work on the evening of 8/19/15 when I started getting warnings from Verizon Wireless about my JetPack data utilization. (I am on a 5GB/month plan, and 3.55+GB were used in that one evening.)

The tech at Verizon said the usage occurred in the "Communications and Device Services," which includes Windows updates and stuff I don't use (such as Skype).  My computer's update history shows only one update on 8-19-15, and that is

"Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3087985).
Could that update possibly have used 3.55 GB of my data allowance?  What is the maximum it could have used?

Hi bparker - Not sure I'm reading your intent right, but if you can save the "19991118damlbmp_zone" etc sheets into a book on the desktop you name "Book11" and then open a new book called "Book10" and run the code from Book10 - you can use something like this:

Code:
[SIZE=2]Sub COPYIT()
'this is run from the book named Book10
Dim N%
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
On Error Resume Next '<< error is - "books already open"
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Book11.xls"
For N = 1 To Sheets.Count
Workbooks("Book11.xls").Activate

Hi all,

I have a monthly report that has a certain column (always column BF) that contains the numbers 1-5, either singly or in any combination thereof. I have to copy this into 5 columns (BQ through BU) and I want those columns titled Q2 - 1, Q2 - 2, Q2 - 3, Q2 - 4 and Q2 - 5.
I need all the 1s in Q2 - 1, all the 2s in Q2 - 2 and so on.
Since the number of items in each cell varies, (there is no 1, , 3,4, , with blanks for non-existing numbers, rather one cell may have 2 and the one below it may have 1,3,5) is there a macro or a formula that would quickly copy every item into the right column?
It isn't vital, I suppose, I can copy, sort and cut and paste, but I would like to save the time....

Thanks in advance

What driver are you trying to install? The ATI driver should be downloaded from Windows Update.
When searching online for a driver, if it hangs on the searching on Windows Update, then you can turn it off.
Then manually go to Windows Update and download all of the Updates for your model. In one of the updates will be the ATI Video driver.
