Syncing iphone, backing up apps and updating the OS

Q: Syncing iphone, backing up apps and updating the OS

Hi all,

I've recently had a few issues with my laptop, and had to reformat it and have it repaired (Windows Vista OS). My iPhone 4 was synced with it before I had all the issues with it.

I have tried updating the OS and backing the apps up today but it won't upgrade the OS as it says the download is corrupted. I don't want to do a re-sync to the new build laptop as I don't want to lose everything. However I'm also aware that I need to back everything up, should something go wrong in the future.

Any ideas as to how I can re-sync it to the re-built laptop, without losing any information?

Regards,

Andy

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.)

Hello,
 
I use Outlook as my primary calendar app at home, and either GMail or my iPhone calendar when I am away. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get these three services to talk to each other.
 
Does anyone know of any programs or services I can use to keep my calendar synchronized? I wouldn't mind dropping GMail from the loop entirely and just having Outlook <-> iPhone synching to each other. Or if anyone has any suggestions for other super awesome calendar apps I'd consider that - but I admit I am pretty fond of Outlook at the moment.
 
Thanks for your help.
 

A:Calendar Apps: Syncing Outlook -> GMail & iPhone (or alternatives)

Are you using a personal email account with Outlook, or a company account? If you're using a company account, you can set up your email on your iPhone using the Exchange account setup wizard, and that will sync over your calendar to your phone.
 
If you're using a personal email account, it's probably either POP or IMAP. Outlook calendar and contacts can be synced to your iPhone, but you'll have to use a manual sync with the phone connected to the computer: http://www.sync-iphone.com/contacts-calendars-email/sync-iphone-with-outlook.html#sync-iphone-with-outlook-two-way
You can also sync Outlook to Gmail, but you'll again need to hool up the phone to the computer and download Google's calendar sync program to your desktop: http://www.ehow.com/how_7172202_sync-outlook-calendar-gmail-calendar.html
 
Hope this helps.

I just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

Just got a new computer with Windows 8 yesterday, I was able to plug in my Iphone 4s yesterday morning and it registered and synced. But now it won't sync. When I plugged it in last night a pop up came up on the upper right hand asking me what I would like to do with it (I was just trying to charge it then) and I hit "ignore" or something to that effect. Now today when I plug it in, it will charge but won't sync or register it at all. Anyone else having these problems? I appreciate any help!
Also, if it helps, whenever I connect the phone iTunes does recognize it.

A:Syncing Iphone?

Hello there!

Microsoft and apple do things differently. iphones are detected as removable storage, where you can actually move content on and off of it, but the iphone won't detect anything at all. The iphone is tethered to the use of itunes, that's what you're supposed to use to sync content on and off of it.

There has been a case where Windows 8 has actually detected an iphone 4s as a toaster! I think that might be a little Easter egg Microsoft has put in Windows 8 as a middle finger to apple saying Windows 8 is a refrigerator and a microwave in one (something of such).

Win-8 Install was a breeze until ? Apple. iTunes ver 10.7 and 11.2 when trying to sync Outlook simply run processor to 98% and sit there with disnoted.exe, Outlook sync and one other apple program I can?t identify sucking up all of that 98%. No syncing of Outlook calendar or Outlook contacts happens. It just sits in this loop for as long as you let it. I let it run 2 hours once just to be sure the first ?sync? wasn?t the particular issue. iTunes will backup the iPhone and the apps. Just not Outlook

I tried installing in Win-7 and XP-SP3 compatibility. Same problem as described above.

11.2 will work on Win-7 on another Toshiba Tecra of the same age, but it occasionally locks the machine. (BRS reset to get it back.)

Naturally it works on XP and has for months.

Other than iTunes, all other programs, including 16 bit legacy, which I need, ran fine and had no issues with Win-8 GUI. In about 1 hours I knew it fine. Don?t know what the hubbub is about with some about the GUI.

Any rumors of a fix for this iTunes issue?

Thanks

I then selected both songs in the iTunes menu and attempted to manually synced them to my iPhone by dragging them to the IPhone in the iTunes menu. One song synced but the other did not.

Greetings.

I have syncing issues with my iPhone 3GS since I upgraded my system from Vista (x86) to 7 Ultimate (x64). For most of the time when I try to sync media (including music/video/photos/apps) to iPhone, the system will lag/stutter heavily (laggy mouse cursor, stuttering sound, etc.) The stuttering sound occurs to every programs that is playing sound on the system (iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, Media Player Classic, YouTube videos playing on internet browser, etc.) The stuttering sound also spread to external USB headphones. (Logitech G35)

I have attempted several remedies in order to fix the problem, these include restoring iPhone firmware (and updated to the latest version available, which is 3.1.3), reinstalling iTunes (The latest version, 9.1), updating drivers, updating BIOS, and ultimately formatting and reinstalling Windows. Furthermore, I tried swapping to the x86 version. The issues were still not solved.

At first I suspect that the iPhone might be faulty, so I tried to sync it with an older computer. (Running on Pentium 4 2.6GHz, 1GB RAM and Windows XP Pro x86), it appears that there's no issue with the sync at all.

Two questions about syncing an iPhone.
 
1. My iPhone 5 was at capacity so I deleted songs. I then backed it up to the iCloud. Now my iPhone 6 has larger capacity. How can I sync all songs in my iTunes library to the new iPhone? I assume there is a manual way of doing this and then the songs will sync to the iCloud in due course.
 
2. I've never known how to sync my calendar and contacts between my Outlook and my iPhone. How do I do this?

I am a college student and I teach college classes. I keep my life on my flashdrive because I have a 45 minute long commute. I have about 12 gb on my flash drive in school work, dissertation data, and files I use to teach (jpg, pdf, ppt, word, etc.), and personal information.

I have once again lost my flash drive. (I guess you could call me an "absent-minded proffessor"). I long ago (after a scare at about 2 gb) learned to create a copy of the flash drive on my hard drive. However, I often don't have the time (student, teacher, and mom)or attention-span to create the backups as often as I change the files.

Here's my issue. I can get a new flash drive, and copy the files from the old one that I saved to my hard drive about a month ago. However, once I recreate the 100 or so files I've modified in that time, I'm still in the same boat. I'd like to know if there is an easy way to save a file that has been changed in two locations at once? Or, is there a way to backup (or copy) only files that have been changed on the flash drive to a folder on my desktop? I'd like a quick, easy, foolproof (and inexpensive) way to automatically protect the files I modify quite frequently.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

PS. I did try using the option of creating a backup copy using the settings in office, but it only creates the backup on the disk the file is located.

A:Syncing (or backing up) files in two locations

I do exactly that which you want with a simple double-click--after writing the batch file and installing a special program for that purpose. There are two programs available for this, one already installed on your computer called XCopy and another free one called XXCopy.

XXCopy is far more versatile and available free from XXCopy.com.

Because flash drives don't always assume the same drive letter, the batch needs to consist of a method of locating the flash drive and then logging to the flash drive's letter then copying (synchronizing) the files.

Here's my batch; but, it is designed to do several flash drives connected at once. Yours need not be this complicated. If you decide on this method, I can help with your custom batch. This one synchronizes many folders on my hard disk with multiple flash drives. Yours would probably be far simpler.

CAUTION: The following may look intimidating to some. Don't let a complicated look scare you off. With a little information from you, I can have you doing your synchronizations clickity-click.

In the "old days", I used to think of apps that sync my personal files to the cloud as the best way to protect and preserve them.
But with the rise of ransomware, it could be just the opposite, because if your files get encrypted, you might get your cloud backup messed up as well, thanks to the sync.
So I turned off all that constant real-time syncing, and only run a sync every once in a while, as necessary.
What do you think about this issue?

They can restore your files to a previous version. I know dropbox can do them all if you make a ticket and don't want to do them one by one.

I have an Excel 2007 workbook. In it I have a number of sheets to keep data. Because i keep data for many years and end up with 100's of 1000's of rows, it was slowing down my day to day work.

What I did was to only keep the last 12 months data on my "CURRENT"sheet, and all the rest I moved to my "ARCHIVE" sheet. All the formula I use to update values are linked to that "ARCHIVE" sheet. This all works fine, but what I now do is manully copy data from my "CURRENT" sheet to the "ARCHIVE" to keep it up to date for the formulas.

Is there a way I can sync the sheets automatically? What I would like to do is to keep entering new data on the Current sheet as I do now, but have a way that this was added to the archive sheet without me having to copy & paste.

Background:

Laptop - Dell Latitude 610 (1.7 GHz, 512 MB)
OS - XP Pro SP3

I am syncing the iphone 3G through itunes with my Outlook contacts and calendar items without any problem on my PC at home, but it's a completely different story at work with the Dell laptop. When I first got the iphone, it worked fine with the Dell for a couple of days, but when I came to work after the weekend, everything went south.

Symptoms:

Once I hook up the phone with itunes, it registers it, but when I hit the sync button, it goes to sync with my contacts, and stays that way for eternity. 10-15 minutes goes by without any changes, and meanwhile, the machine slows to a halt. I can't run any other program in parallel, and it would take 30-40 seconds just switching in between windows. So I would have to manually cancel the sync. Afterwards, the machine remains slow as molasses. I go to Task Manager and would see that the OutlookSyncClient.exe continues to run even though I exited itunes. This is not the case on my home computer. When I exit itunes, that particular process stops as well. If I click over to the performance tab, it would show spike sin CPU usage, and off the chart PF values, like in the GB range. It also is taking up 40-50 MB of memory as well... Read more

I presume somehow iPhone's sent mail is marked read in the webmail and is not considered to be downloaded via POP3. Can you help me fix this please.
Thanks
This same thread is also posted on Google forums but couldn't get any productive answer.

After I updated my Windows 8 x64 Lenovo y410p PC to Windows 8.1 from the app store and updated and repaired all possible apps from the store, there's 5 apps (that appear without images):

Microsoft.Camera
Microsoft.WindowsLive.ModernPhotos
Microsoft.Bing
Microsoft.WindowsLive.Chat
Microsoft.MicrosoftSkydrive

that when I try to run them, I get the message "This app can't open" and it asks me to check the Store for a fix. When I click the button to do that, the Store opens and I get the message "There's a problem with the app you're trying to run, and it can't be repaired by Windows Store." I'm guessing these are the old apps from Windows 8 that are no longer supported on Windows 8.1 (since I also have separate working Photos, Camera, and Skydrive metro apps). The only exception is that when I run the broken chat app, the Store app offers to repair the Mail, Calendar, and Peoples app, but that does not remove the broken chat app. How do I get rid of these apps, since I can't uninstall them from then normal uninstall menu?

Here's what there apps look like: Photo Album - Imgur

Sometime ago as I was updating my Firefox browser I noticed multiple previous versions in the folder. I can't find that thread so I'm asking if that or similiar happens with other programs such as Avast,CCleaner, M-bam & so on? If so, I think it might be best to use revo to uninstall & reinstall, is that true? I'm only asking because my Vista laptop has slowed a bit & I'm thinking I could speed it up a bit by doing such. My scans continue to come up clean, too. Thanks
 

A:Updating software apps

Well, it wasn't mass minutes it saved, but uninstalling & reinstalling some programs has been beneficial.

I have automatic update of Windows apps switched on but on opening the apps store I am told there are 29 updates. I have tried to install the updates one at a time but the screen shows the message "Pending" and nothing more happens. I have checked that my internet connection is OK. I am using a Samsung Ultrabook with 6GB RAM and 500 GB hard drive space and I have only had it a few days.
Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?
Many thanks

A:Problems updating Windows 8 apps

Did you get any error messages? I ask because I am having the same problem I can't install new apps or update existing ones.

Each time I attempt to install or update through the app store I receive error message 0x80072ee4 or 080073cff. I searched google and unfortunately none of the solutions posited helped. They include:

1. Performing a clean boot. (Disabling all non-microsoft services and startup items)
2. Using the SFC /SCANNOW option to verify the integrity of windows files.
3. Clearing C:/Users/Myusername/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Store and C:/Users/Myusername/AppData/Local/Package to clean the cache files.
4. Clearing C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution and restarting the Windows Update service.
5. Verifying that all windows services are running.
6. Disabling NIS 2013
7. Running troubleshooter
Nothing works. Oh and before someone tells me to run the windows restore function.
1. I don't consider that to be a genuine solution. (What if the same thing happens again?)
2. I don't plan on reinstalling all 50 non-windows app store applications.

Re-installed Windows 8 along side Windows 7 (because I can) and seem to be having issue with the updates of the default Windows 8 apps included with Windows 8. Says it's pending, but nothing is happening. These apps are for News, Finance etc etc. Pretty much all the default windows 8 modern apps.

Any ideas?

Hello GhostDog,

You might see if clearing the Store cache may be able to help.
