Preferred Solution: backing up XP

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.)

A: backing up XP

You will need a third party program such as Norton Ghost. I don't think it will fit on one CD, but I believe it will span it to multiple cds

I have purchased a new HP Laptop with Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit preinstalled in it. There was only single partition. With the help of some HP tools I was able to create backup DVD's which now contains the initial image of my harddisk. Then, I removed the recovery partition. Now, the problem is that I have created another partition using windows tool in which I keep my essential data. If, ever I have to format the system, and I use the backup DVD's then my data in second partition will be lost as it was just one partition earlier. How do I plan a backup so that my data in second partition remains safe in case I have to reformat the OS partition. I don't want to use imaging softwares, neither do I have any external HDD. I have got windows 7 key written at the back of my lappy. Will it be of any help ?? I just want to be able to reinstall win 7 in the current OS partition using the key as I don't have the original CD. And I don't care about the data in OS partition.

Of late my laptop's DVD-ROM has been giving a lot of problems to me. It isn't being able to read CDs/DVDs. Each time I have to eject the disc, then insert it and do the entire process a lot of times for the CD/DVD to be read.

This problem has irritated me for a while now. There are many games which need the CD/DVD to be inserted, and each time when I change the discs, it takes away at least 5-6 minutes.

Is there a way by which I can back up the discs in my HDD and play the games without inserting each CD/DVD every time?

And the problem is DVD specific. For instance, the DVD of Ashes Cricket 09 is read in 2-3 attempts but that of NBA 2K11 takes at least 7-8 attempts for the laptop to read the disc. Is it a problem with my laptop or the DVDs?

And I tried installing Alcohol 120% and Daemon Tools, but the installation process keeps on asking me to reboot. After a reboot, it gives the same message.
I read somewhere that there are some issues of SPTD drivers on Windows 7 but couldn't really find a solution to it.

Any sort of help will be appreciated.
Thanks.

A:Backing up a DVD

Will the drive read anydisk? It could be the drive is bad. I don;t know a way to test this other than replacing it.
Here are SPTD drivers.

You can try to extract an .iso image of the disk(s) with UltraISO. Then you can use it to mount that image to a virtual drive, just like you have a separate drive.

Hey guys,

What are the steps I have to take to backup my entire harddrive, so that when I get a new pc I can have a one-click restoration of all my installed files (skip the hassle of reinstalling all my utilities) as well as my media?

Is there an all-in-one programme that can do this for me?

A:backing up

The Windows Files & Settings Transfer Wizard is SUPPOSED to do this, but I've had about a 50% success rating with it. There's also the fact that files & settings saved in one XP Service Pack won't transfer to an XP installation with another Service Pack. I gave up on relying on it when I learned this, and that there was no "fix" coming to remedy the situation.

I mention this to get ahead of any recommendations to rely on this method. There may be a 3rd party alternative that is more reliable, but I'm unaware of it.

My client is a small organisation made up of 8 people and I need to advise them of a backup process for their PC's. I have only ever dealt with backing up on a large scale (like a Government dept) where they use tapes to backup data from the servers.

Can you guys recommend a method of backing up on a smaller scale? The way I'm heading is towards using the Windows Backup feature each Wednesday & Friday night after the user goes home but this will require the user to leave their PC running on these nights and using a scheduled task to run the back up program.I then need to burn the backed up data to DVD and shutdown the computer afterwards.

Can anyone recommend a (preferably free) program that can do this all in one? Or, even another option for backing up the data on these 8 PC's. (Note; they are not on a network yet.)

Hi,

I have never backed up my system using a backup utility. I have always backed up important personal files manually onto a disc or other device. I want to do a thorough backup now as I may have a serious infection of which is posted in the HJT forum and to which am waiting for a response. I installed the Windows Backup utility from the operating cd. The problem I am having is knowing how to find the proper location in which to backup. Other than the C drive, the only drive options are removable discs and even when I choose one of these, I am told that I cannot backup there as there is not a proper path.

Can anyone help with this?

A:Help Backing Up

You cannot use the Windows backup utility to record directly to a CD/DVD.If you want to back and store those files on those media...you must first store the file to a partition, then burn it to disk just as you would any other set of files which you want on CD/DVD.http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=c...mp;aq=f&oq=You need either another hard drive or the means of creating such on your current hard drive (which means that you require sufficient space to do such).I've not used NT Backup...but I don't think it will allow a user to create and store a backup on the same partition which is being backed up. Many backup utilities won't.IMO, the smart solution is to add a hard drive to your system, which which you can use for backups and nothing else.Louis

So my mom never has time to sit with me and choose files that she doesn't need me to backup (Im trying to do a clean install of Windows 7 on her laptop) so I remembered that a year ago when my dad had his PC fixed, they deleted everything but kept all the files in a folder name "Windows.OLD". They had EVERYTHING there, every folder, all the pictures, videos, etc. How do I do that? I would like to simply take all of the files that I have on my mom's laptop and simply back them up for future access.
If possible, please offer me some free solutions

Thank you

A:Backing up EVERYTHING...

Hello Dani,

The Windows.old folder would be a copy of the installation that's created only when you upgrade or do an in-place upgrade of Windows.

For what you are wanting, you could create a system image to backup everything with.

Hi! A friend has a computer running XP. The computer is about 10 years old, so it's going to go soon, not to mention that it's soooo slow. He's not very computer literate, so I figure the best OS I could put on a computer for him is Windows 7 as it's close to XP without much of a learning curve. I've picked out a nice computer for him, but it comes with a SATA3 hard drive. His current drive is HDE. He needs to keep the software programs he has on it and the data in them. What can I use to copy/backup these programs so they will be usable in the new OS? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A:Backing Up

If it works for you, then it's OK. But the true test of a backup utility is when you need it to restore your data. I'd suggest testing that ability before you actually need it. Try and restore the backup to another drive or folder just to see "if" it works.

Ok so I'm not entirely sure that's what I mean but I think it is, I'll explain.

I have a dual boot with xp and windows 7 - Xp was the original installation.

One of my wonderful children just got XP infected with a virus - Agent r. something. After spending hours trying all sorts to get rid of it I decided the safest way was to format the partition and reinstall XP.

After I did that it no longer offered me the boot options at boot up, so I reinstalled Windows 7 as well.

I did lots of other things before I reinstalled Windows 7 but in the end it took that long that I thought might as well just reinstall it.

Yes... I know....

So now everything is back as it should be - is it the MBR that I back up just in case I have to format and reinstall anything in the future - and if it is, how do I go about it?

All help much appreciated :)

Hullo, folks. Newbie here, obviously, and my question will probably make it that much more apparent. Still, it's worth asking.

At the moment, I'm running XP Pro on my home PC. I never used any of the extra features, as I'm not -that- much of a power-user, but I never had any reason to move to XP Home just to be rid of the bloat when the Pro install was working just fine.

Very recently, however, I've been noticing more and more OS problems as time goes on. Infrequent reboots with serious error messages, some settings not being saved, files being corrupted, and all that. I've already done every kind of check on my hard drive that I can think of, and I'm pretty sure the problem doesn't have its root there.

With these problems, I figure now is a good time for me to go ahead and move to Home, since I want to do a fresh install anyway. Here's my situation, though. I use an 80 GB HD on this machine, with 5 GB set aside for the main OS partition, and the remainder serving as the place where I tuck my files and program installations so that I won't lose it all if Windows suddenly goes splat.

What I'm wondering here is what the easiest way for me to back the current contents of the drive up and make that move to Home. My plan so far is to back the files up, make note of which programs I'll need to reinstall, and then just format the drive entirely before starting all over from the bottom up. I could just format the OS partition... Read more

Before I put away the old computer running the same OS as the new computer, I backed up the hdd using Acronis and I also backed up to a USB external hdd "just in case". The USB external is a 40GB hdd and only one partition. My question is: can I also back up the hdd in my new computer to the same hdd without causing any problem if and when I have to use it to restore either? computer's hdd contents? (I have also backed up the new PC hdd with Acronis.) BTW, the external hdd is more than adequate to accommodate both PC back ups; even with dual booting XP Pro and Win98SE on the old PC.

I understand that Acronis will not burn to a DVD disk but instead the burn has to be saved somewhere (desktop?) and then copied to a DVD disk. If that is true then does Acronis have any trouble reading from the DVD to put back the contents on the hdd? As usual, TIA (I just re-read this and I have a lotta hdd typed in this thread!!---sorry)
