Preferred Solution: Comodo online backup questions

I recommend trying the free service from Zip Cloud. It's currently our users' favorite backup and storage solution and will save you headaches down the line.

You can get it direct from this link http://goo.gl/rFYDxc. (This link will open the Zip Cloud homepage.)

A: Comodo online backup questions

The Comodo backup program comes with no online storage as standard; if you want to backup online you'll need to have access to an FTP server or subscribe to the Comodo Online Storage service here.

Adrive offers 50gb of free online storage, but you have to pay if you want to connect via ftp. Fabrik offer 2gb free with no limitations; useful for backing up email and smaller documents.

After having analyzed online a file with many antivirus to see if is infected or not (example Virustotal), we may need to understand, at least in part, what damage it did to our operating system.

An alternative site that analyzes the behavior of the file is Comodo Automated Analysis System, even here just select the file you want to analyze, accept the terms of use and start to upload.

With this service just a few minutes, and it generates a page where you can find all the features of the parsed file.

Here we have all the registry changes, changes to files and folders in your hard disk, new processes are created and put into execution, files/folders/services/hidden drivers, in the end the verdict about the type of file sent.
Service limits

No service is perfect, the results should be analyzed before deleting files that may be important, there may be false positives with files that have suspicious behavior, similar to a malware, but are actually clean.

Ran out of this space in my Q:Lenvovo - backup assigned partition.  14GB.  (My C: drive has 80GB free!) How can I fix this?  Is there a way to expand the partition without deleting it first?  Does Lenvovo or Microsoft or SSD manufacturer have a tool to do this where you just enter the amount you want to expand a partition to and it will adjust the other partition accordingly?  If not; I cannot delete the Q:Lenovo drive using file explorer or disk cleanup utility.  How do I remove at the original backup?  When I go to disk cleanup it shows blank the files; so it is a hidden file or subdirectory.  I even try signing on as System Administratin but forgot the password I created, it been so long ago and never use it.  LOL!   If I cannot do any of this:  There is an option to do a Windows 10 refresh but can you redirect it to a new SSD from the existing SSD? 2.

I am operating a computer with the Microsoft XP program and have been using Comodo Backup software. It undertakes a scheduled backup each night while I sleep. For the past three days, when I open the screen in the morning, it shows an error message. "Backup failed error code 100021". The Help section of the Comodo program does not provide any reference to failed backups that I can find. Can anyone tell me how to resolve this problem? I have tried rebooting the computer, but the problem remains. Should I re-load the Comodo program?

I did try downloading the TSG Sysinfo program as you suggest, but have been unable to find it in my list of programs. If you advise me simply how to do that and obtain the log, I will do so.

With thanks in anticipation.

I'm an old guy in poor health on a limited income with a patched together home network of really old hand-me-down computers.

I used to back-up the data from my computers onto tape drives, but that system finally failed so now I'm without any way to backup my data.

I've downloaded and installed Comodo Backup, but can't figure out how to get it to work. I've tried posting in the Comodo Backup Help Forum but that forum has little activity, so most of the help requests posted there in the last two months haven't received a single reply.

I'm wondering if this would be an appropriate place to ask for help, either in figuring out how to get Comodo Backup to work for me or in finding a backup program that is more suitable to my admittedly limited computer skills.

Any assistance appreciated. I am trying to backup my favorites/bookmarks in Comodo Browser, and can`t seem to get the job done. From what I`ve read, I should go to the bookmark manager in the browser, and there I should find the ability to export bookmarks. I do not have/cannot find export on my Comodo Browser bookmark manager. Does anyone know of a workaround, or what I am doing wrong? You would think this would be so simple, but I have been trying to accomplish this all day by searching TSG, and the web with no results. Thanks for taking the time.

I`m going to go ahead and mark this as solved so no one wastes any time on it. I never got it figured out(3 days is enough), I ended up drinking a pot of coffee, and going to each link in my Comodo Browser favorites, writing the link down, then using Firefox to go to each link, and saved them one by one in Firefox favorites. I then made my favorites backup with Firefox. It sure wasn`t pretty(wife said I was nuts), but I accomplished the mission, slow and sure like the turtle. Thanks to anyone who took time to look.

Hi,

Just started setting up my backups with Comodo but suddenly realized that seemingly no name is associated with a backup. In my case I trying to create the following backups:
1. critical files: full/each-Sun
2. critical files: Inc/daily
3. studio files: full/1st-each-month
4. studio files: Inc/each-Sat
5. resource files: full/15-each-month
and so on...

But is it possible to create multiple backups using Comodo?? Or, am I just changing the full and Inc backups over and over again!!!!

How, for instance, can I check and/or change my 'critical files' backup?

I have almost a T-Byte of data (I do 3D animation) which is why I like to breakup my backups.

Thanks,
Rusty

A:Comodo Backup: Can I create multiple backups??

I've never used Comodo Backup so I have no first hand knowledge of how it works. But under "Features" it says:






Quote:
Make use of the versioning capabilities to keep track of your backup changes.


Source

This leads me to believe that it should be possible to save different backup versions/images rather than just updating a previous backup. I use Macrium Reflect and the native Windows 7 backup utility. Macrium assigns each backup a unique identifier. Windows 7 calls each backup image WindowsImageBackup. To save any WindowsImageBackup all I have to do is rename it to something else. Perhaps this could be better answered through GeekBuddy or the Comodo email support (backupsupport<at>comodo.com).

hi,

I am very interested to buy the network adaptor for the ps2 but have a few questions regarding it. I know I need broadband connection (512) which I do have, I need the network adaptor and ps2 ethernet cable and a memory card. The ethernet cable dpoes come with the network adaptor but the adsl modem is about 8 meters away from the ps2. Also i was wondering does the ethernet cable have to join into the modem because my modem only has one slot for a cable to go into and how else would it get a connection to a phone. I noticed on pictures of the network adaptor it has 2 slots can a ethernet cable from my computer go into one and a phone line into the other? i also have a mod chip and was wondering from people who have this network adaptor does it still work online?

Any help or advice for this would be greatly appreciated

A:Online Backup?

Doubt it, and how long have you got anyway ? A typical PC has often got a minimum of 20Gb of data, whilst a typical 5Mbit download broadband only has 300Kbit upload, and to transfer 20Gb would take approximately 148 hours.

Better buy a cheap USB hard drive

Does anyone here use the Carbonite online backup service? I know someone who does, but I'm still a bit skeptical of trusting my "priceless" photos and stuff to some company's server.

I've been backing up on separate hard drives. But they're not big enough now, so I'm going to have to buy a bigger one. Is it better to go with an online service, and upload your files to their server, than mirror a partition to your local backup hard drive? What is the best online backup service out there?

My friend who uses Carbonite loves it (though he's never had to restore a wiped-out system with it). They charge $49.95 per year for unlimited space. Their software monitors your system to detect changed/added files and then uploads those, adding to the backup, but I wonder if that extra software being always active is going to slow down my system.

Obviously, it is no longer entirely up to date on some details.
So I offer it "as is", as far as researching the other companies.
This is in addition to the usual vendors (Carbonite, Mozy) and the big "cloud" file-sharing services (Google Drive, OneDrive, SugarSync,etc.)

I have a feeling that an UNLIMITED account with TRUE ARCHIVING and adequate SECURITY will be EXPENSIVE and/or hard to find.

That is an option. Another option is to have your computer backup to your computer at home. You can use a Dynamic DNS service to connect to whatever computer you wish. As a mater of fact you could have it backup to a external USB drive with the right type of router. http://no-ip.com is a free service.

Can anyone help me with a low cost solution for backing up these photos?

Thanks!

Sorry if this is in the wrong subforum, I wasn't sure.

Right now I'm looking into making a complete backup of my HDD before I start trying to sort out a virus (which I'll be posting about once this is done).

The virus'd computer can't connect to the internet and thus may have trouble installing the imaging software I need, so I was thinking of doing this by way of another computer and a pair of usb drive enclosures, for the virus'd drive and the backup drive. Am I correct in thinking that (with autoplay disabled) the virus couldn't contaminate the other computer running the imaging software?

Hey guys, I have a 1TB Time capsule and I would like to backup my Windows XP SP3 Desktop (iMac 24" Alu running bootcamp). I would like to know a few things about XP's default backup brogram 'ntbackup':

1)If I delete a file (Word document, Presentation, etc...) can I just use it to get that single file back, or would I have to restore the computer from a whole backup?

2)Does it do automatic background backing up, like time machine?

3)If I delete a file, and then ntbackup backs up the system (differential or incremental, not quite sure of the difference), will it remove that file from the backup so I can't restore it?

4)What features does it have in comparison to time machine?

5)Does it function well with time capsule?

Thanks everyone

program i could use? thank you
 

A:questions about backup

6 gigabyes does not sound like a lot. Provided the internet connection speeds, you could back your computer up online. As for a complete copy of your computer, I know of a program that can help you do that. http://www.runtime.org/dixml.htm You can use it to compress the backup file a bit, which can make the backup 5 gigabytes, depending on what you have on your computer. Some files compress a lot easier than others. Also you can split the files into smaller amounts if you want to store them somewhere of several small places, like disks for example. I think there is only one set size. It takes everything of the whole physical disk. Also, you can browse the files from that backup and pick out the files you lost, as long as the whole thing is accessed somewhere together.
Disadvantage is that you can't make incremental backups or others like that (backups that only account for the changes since your last backup), so you do only full backups. If you plan to just replace your backup as you create a new one, that is fine. Other disadvantage is that you need the space to hold the backup files for the time being, before writing them onto something such as CD's and DVD's.

I run a backup to an external drive. This is managed by one of the services provided by Norton with its antivirus program and runs all the time. My question is whether this obviates the need for a system image disk. Is this correct? On the other hand I think it might be a good idea to have the repair disk derived from W7. Is this correct?

A:backup questions

I would put my primary emphasis on System Image, it works great and has saved many at this forum. Norton in my opinion is not the best AV to be used with Windows 7. It has been indicated in several BSOD reports that I have helped remedy.

That being said many rely on Macrium Reflex, which is excellent backup software.

1. I am looking to backup my computer. I have 2 small internal hard drives. I have seen the program Karen's Replicator and thought about downloading it. I would like to just copy both hard drives entirely. Would I just need an external hard drive? Are there better types of external drives then others (suggestions and why)? One of my internal drives is probably 6 years old and has all of my family vids and pictures. That drive has been formatted erasing all of the data on it (about 3years ago) and then the pics and vids were put on it along with some programs I put on my computer. I have heard the harddrives can crap out so I would like to do this soon.

Currently I backup my entire C directory and the D recovery to a Clickfree 320g external drive. Is this the best approach?
I am assuming that in taking that approach the OS is also backed up and given the worst case that I must reinstall the OS I can get back to pre-event status given it's all backed up.
Anyway what is the best approach to" Back-up"???

A:Backup Questions

The word best is subjective and has different meaning to different people. The best for me is to use this software
Free Backup Software: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Edition - Overview

and store on a separate hard drive. Once a month I make a new image.

Once a week, I make a system restore point (by default). In the event of a problem with my OS, I have the system restore to use.

In the event of a bigger problem, I always have current image of my HD, which I have not needed, in all my years of computing.

What some others do, is make a current back up of the HD and put it away. Once a month make a second backup. In the event of any problem scenario, you have a very old back up that is free of any problems.

Dear Friends, hope all is well.

See Attachments:
I noticed that there hasn't been a (Last backup) Backup. I'm not sure why?
When I did try to do a backup today it said there wasn't enough space it seems.
What is the best way to do this?
When I back up my Desktop i use an external HD. But I think there is some confusion about what is a Backup and the types of backups.
Any help or suggestions much appreciated. I'm obviously confused.

Looks you have choose the wrong location to backup to. I think D: is the Recovery Partition on your hard drive and it is indeed full. What drive letter is your external drive?

Syler from the Highjack team helped me out and got me all cleaned up. I'd like to make sure everything I have now is all backed up. As well, I often read about making a bootable disk in case you have a crash. Any pointers would be appreciated...im a rookie.

A:XP Backup Questions

What version of XP (Home or Pro)? Pro has a tool for back-ups...Home doesn't...A lot of people use a program such as Acronis to back-up an image of their Operating System for restoration...Never used it personally....Bootable disks can be of help on systems that won't boot into Windows but you will also need your XP CD for some of the files...They can be used to get windows to open but they won't do much for restoration...Another option is to set restore points religiously...In the event that something happens you can revert back to an earlier time to fix things that are happening now...Another thing is to use " Last known Good Configuration" boot option to fix problems that cause windows not to open...

If you have XP Pro you can use the Control Panel> Performance and Maintenance> Back-up Wizard for backing things up...Backup to an external drive or flash stick...

Hi

Hope you can help me with my query.

1) I have done a back up using Win7 and noticed that the backup files have all been setup as like a archive files. What I would prefer is for Windows to create the backup into files that are not in these type of archive files, I want to be able to view them so I can see what files I have. In the past I have used the manual method of just copying and pasting files to my external drive and this allows me to view what files have been backed up.

2) When there a new files added to my backup directory e.g. new pictures that have been transferred from my phone to my internal hard drive on my PC. Will Windows backup recognise/identify these new files when I start the backup process each time, will it backup the entire folders/libraries all over again or only just those new added files?

Appreciate any help.

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is where I'm supposed to post, so correct me if I'm wrong. Also, I'm a new Windows 7 user, so I may need things dumbed down.

I already had an anti-virus program that I use when I first started Windows 7, so I choose not to install Norton nor have I ever installed Norton on my computer. Before installing my new program, I uninstalled Norton, Control Panel + Programs + Uninstall and it disappeared. I also choose to uninstall the Norton Online Backup. At the time, I wanted to uninstall it not for any real reason, just wanted to get rid of anything Norton on my computer to avoid future confusion, not because I thought it actually did anything. But even though I've tried and tried, and according to the window that pops up and tells you you were successful, Norton Online Backup is still there.

Now I don't know what that program does, or if it's fine to let it hang out on my computer or anything, but the fact that I can't get rid of it is driving me crazy. Every once in a while, few days or so, a screen pops up, asking me if I want to try a free trial of Norton. There's a "remind me later" button, but no "no, never ask me again" or opt out button. I'm not sure why Windows keeps asking me that, or if it's the Norton Online Backup doing it's thing, but I have an anti-virus program, and I don't want Norton!

I've also downloaded a Norton removal tool, ran it, a window said I was successful, and I restarted, but Norton Online Backup ... Read more

Honestly this is getting really annoying. After sitting through 40 minutes of a Norton employee going through my computer's files and deleting every instance of "strongvault" as slow as a slug, not to mention messing up my browser, I'm ready to just get rid of this thing once and for all. Strongvault is a pain in the ass, and next time i buy any used electronics from a friend again, I'll be sure to completely wipe it before i proceed to use it.

I've used malwarebytes anti-malware to remove the browser hijacking that took place, as well as removed 104 total malware issues, but strongvault remained undetected, as it has from every single program or software that I've sent after it.
