Preferred Solution: Norton GoBack

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.)

Hi,

I'm considering buying Norton GoBack, but at $60+ Canadian, it's a bit of an investment.

Is it a good program, or should I just stick with MS System Restore?

Sure would appreciate your thoughts.

Hi, does anybody out there use Norton GoBack 4.0 in WinXP? I've had it for a little while and it seems like a very useful toy.

I recently changed a BIOS setting so my secondary hard drive is on my RAID controller instead of being a standalone SATA drive. Windows detected it as a new drive and *relettered* the five partitions! I should have expected that, but UGH.

GoBack still recognizes and protects the drives, but the history log file was cleared because it thinks it's a brand new drive. I'm able to change the letters back to the original settings via Disk Management Console, but I have to _force_ it one partition at a time rebooting in between (seems that GoBack doesn't notice the change until I reboot; but then it becomes a brand-new drive again). I say force because I get "this drive is in use blah blah blah yes/no" Sure I could have reversed the BIOS change but I'm not sure Windows would have preserved the old letters, and the [minor] damage has already been done.

Any experience with this? There should be an option in GoBack to ask it to change drive letters. Because sometimes users don't initiate the letter change, i.e. external drives.

Any ideas?

A:Norton GoBack and drive letters

Your post is not entirely clear to me but it seems there’s a misconception of goback. While you do set it up in windows, it does not work with the drive in windows, rather it works directly with the drive in “dos mode”. As such, it will not recognize drive letter changes made in windows, only drives in the computer, completely independent of what windows sees and does. If you choose to have goback restore your computer from windows, it will exit windows, do it’s restore in “dos mode”, then boot back in to windows. In the event of a crash, goback will run before windows boots, check your drive, ask if you want to restore, then boot into windows. Unlike Windows system restore where you just disable it and keep on working, if you disable goback, it will reboot into “dos mode” and delete all of it’s backup images. That can be a very time consuming process depending on how long it’s been enabled and how much space you allow it to occupy on your drives. Norton AV sucks but goback is a must have.

I am wondering if, even AFTER uninstalling the program, it still has altered my MBR. Has anyone here uninstalled GOBACK and if so, are you seeing the same thing in the registry.

Help! I have a Dell Dimension 4600 computer with an 80 GB IDE hard drive running under Windows XP home edition. I also use the Norton GoBack 4.0 system restore utility. For some reason, Norton GoBack is now blocking my computer from booting up. I get a GoBack Error 122 message stating that "Norton GoBack rebooted your computer because it detected an unstable system." When I reboot, the log on screen displays for a few seconds and then the same message above is displayed. If I hit the space bar during the reboot (the procedure to get NGB to provide the option to restore the hard drive) I get a menu with the choices to restore the hard drive, to disable NGB, or to boot from a removeable drive. System restoration does not work, and if I attempt to disable NGB the computer freezes up in the process. I have booted from my CD ROM using my XP installation disk. This loads some basic drivers and has a recovery utility that provides access to the DOS command prompt. Following Norton's instructions on recovery from Error 122, I ran chkdsk /r to repair files and bad sectors, and then tried rebooting. Same problem. I also replaced the boot file using the fixboot command at the DOS prompt. Same problem.

Hi Gang,

I purchased Norton Goback 4.0. It is advertised to have a 8GB of revert space on Windows XP. However I can only get it to go to 4GB.

I have a dual boot computer. C drive has win98. D drive has Win XP Sp2. With a dual boot system you have to install on Win98 first. Then you reboot, and at the splash screen you disable Goback, and then you boot into XP. Then you install on XP.

The problem is that it installs on Win98 fine but it is supposed to go to 8GB on XP and it doesn't do that. It only goes to 4GB.

I have used Norton Systemworks 2003 to update it.

I have emailed Norton Goback tech support three times in the last two weeks and no response. Truthfully I don't think they exist. If you know how to help me, please do.

Thanks,
HULK!

Good Morning.

First of all excuse me for my English, but I am Italian.

I am tryng to install Norton Goback Personal Edition, but I have some problems.

Untill two weeks ago I couldn't use this software because of a Linux Installation of my disk. Recently i have bought a new and larger disk that I have installed as the master one, installing the older one as slave. Then I have copied all the partition except the ext2 partition on the new disk. Now on my primary disk i have 3 primary partitions (Win 98 on fat32, Win2000 on NTFS5 and another NTFS5 partition) and an extended one which contains 4 other partitions (3 with FAT32 filesystem and one with NTFS5 filessystem).

Now let's talk with my problem: when I install Goback with the proper dual-boot installation method, Goback tells me that there are unsupported partitions on my primary disk: the installations finishes without problems, but Goback protects every partition exept the ones containing the operative systems: obviously this renders Goback totally useless for me.

I can't uderstand where is the problem: all the partitions on primary disk are FAT32 or NTFS5, which should be totally supported, but Goback doensn't agree. The disk is a Maxtor Diamond Plus 9 whith an 80 GB size. I know I could repartition and reformat the drive, but I would take a lot of time and I would prefer to avoid it, if possible.

Has anyone ever had a similar problem before? Is there any solution?

Now the Norton Go Back comes on with an error 126 and the text "Norton GoBack has detected its partition signature in the MBR on disk#1 but links to Norton GoBack's datalO.BIN) are broken. To fix this problem, Norton GoBack will need to scan your hard disk for its data file and then restore the MBR and/or BPB sector. Until this problem is fixed, you will not be able to access this disk.

This problem was probably caused by a utility such as a virus checker, multi-boot manager, or disk editor.

My father has a P3 running Windows XP. He uninstalled Norton GoBack, and the hard drive is now unrecognizeable. When we try to start the computer with the hard drive, we get the following message: "Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"

I have tried using various freeware tools (UltimateBootCD and Knoppix) to try and fix the registry values, but the hard drive is intermittent with it's recognition on the BIOS. Sometimes the BIOS sees it, and sometimes it doesn't. Even when it does see it, it will state that the drive has failed in the boot process after recognition.

We have tried using various MBR, BOOT, Partition and Windows tools to try to access and fix the drive, but nothing is working. It appears that we may have to completely reformat and repartition the hard drive in order for it to work, but I am hoping that someone may know of a way to get the BIOS to recognize the drive long enough to use a utility, or know of a tried and true utility that will work.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Going to be very hard to do anything if you can't see the HD all the time.

I would open the case and reseat all the cables that go to the HD.

Since this is a P3, is this the original HD?, if so it probably needs to be replaced. All hard drives will fail, if given enough time.

Hi there,
so yes I admit it, I screwed up and did not pay attention!
I was installing the above program last night and the window asking what parts of NSW i wanted to install. I noticed that GoBack was not checked so i checked it. then the system said it needed to restart to continue.
so here is the problem, I had NSW 2006 already installed and I was upgrading to 2007. The part i did not even see was that there aparently a statement there i did not see saying that if I already had GoBack installed on the system to NOT CHECK it again for the new install.
Guess what? I did and here I am with a ststem that will not reboot any more??
All i get now is it tries to reboot 2 times and then finally goed to the safe mode option window.
I did start in safe mode to try and uninstall the old system works/GoBack but now the do not even appear in the add/remove programs area.

Anybody have any words of wisdom for a dummy?

support.microsoft.com/kb/884130 states that the problem is when Go Back is used with a 64 bit NX processor. Which (I assume) does not apply to your set up.

Hi All!

I am building a new computer and have Windows XP Pro for the operating system. I have been using GoBack for several years starting with v2.1e. I am now running Roxio Goback v3.21.106 with Windows 98SE. I would really hate to be without GoBack in a computer but have heard all sorts of weird tales about using the program with XP. Is there any consensus here about the compatibility of XP and GoBack? If there is a conflict with the Windows System Restore do I have the option of disabling System Restore so I can use GoBack?
Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

Props
 

A:GoBack 3.21.106 w/XP Pro?

I use GoBack with WinXP Home and it works very well. System Restore is disabled!

Q: GoBack

I had Goback and I loved it. It saved me several times. I had some problem (maybe Partition Mag) that required me to remove GoBack. I did and I scrubbed as much as I could (I thought, I guess I screwed up somewhere) I did an unistall, searched for bits and pieces and removed them etc.

BUUUTTTT............. now when I try to install. I get the install shield and things start but very soon I get congratulated because "Goback has been successfully uninstalled".

In other words, I can't reinstall it. I can't figure out what to do.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I am in the midst of my 2nd reformat in 10 days. First reformat was my choice (housekeeping). When I got the the part of loading the printer, I had a major conflict with GoBack, uninstalled GoBack (per the tech support at HP), got the printer going, then re-installed GoBack, which caused me to do reformat #2 But I digress....

Now I am in midst of 2nd reformat/recreating of my system, and GoBack AGAIN created an issue upon install that almost had me doing reformat #3 (ack!!) but somehow I was able to get to System Restore and put everything in order (or so I thot). I un-installed GoBack using Add/Remove Programs, and will not use it again

Now it's a coupla days (and lots of tweaking & software installs later), and I did a defrag. The defrag report shows files that cannot be defragged. It lists 80 fragments totalling 3.73 GB under \GOBACKIO.BIN. So I did a search of all files named goback*.* The results appeared to be a few folders that didn't do anything (one being a users guide in Acrobat). I deleted them from the c:\programs file.

I am not sure how I can recover my 3.73 GB being held hostage by GoBack without doing a reformat again ... My HD is 40 GB and probably won't even be half full when all the smoke clears, so it's not a space issue. I guess my question is: should I be worried about this remnant of GoBack or whatever it is??

Any direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Q: GoBack

Can you go back one day, using XP Pro with SP2 and all updates, to recover lost data; assuming that is possible, how does one go about getting that done?
Thanks to anyone who has the knowledge, and is willing to share with others.

This is an odd one... I attempted to install GoBack on my daughters PC with XP Pro and after progressing thru the initial installation steps and even apparently installing files, it pops up with the following message.

This hardrive has clusters larger tha 4 Kbytes. GoBack cannot be installed on hard drives formatted with clusters over 4 Kbytes. (or something very close to that)

Anyone got any ideas on this? How does one control "Cluster size"? Is it a function of formatting? How/where can I even check "Cluster size" to determine what I do have. I've already checked the Symantec KB for GoBack and found no reference.

I used Partition Commander to format all partitions. The format is NTFS.

As always, any and all input greatfully accepted.

BTW... Please ignore the system specs below... That's my system.

SP2's DEP issue with Goback 3 or Goback 4 (and other applications/programs which experience DEP issues or BSOD after installing SP2) on an Athlon64 PCI Express system can be resolved easily by adding the following after the default Boot in Boot.ini

/noexecute=alwaysoff /NOPAE

so that it reads something like

[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINXPH="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /noexecute=alwaysoff /NOPAE

instead of
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINXPH="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

I have found System Restore to be worthless because it seems to fail whenever needed most.

I don't like Norton products but wondered if GoBack will run on XP if System Restore is turned off?

Thanks
 

A:Will GoBack run on XP

yes it will run on xp, but you will find it's a resource hog. The continence accessing of the hard drive drove me nuts when I tried it.

On a old windows 98 system I had, it came pre installed with a program from power quest called second chance, it was a few years ago but it got me out of trouble a few times, but these days I just keep a good ghost 2003 back up.

Hello,

I am using WinXP Professional and I would like to get some opinions on which application is better: Norton Ghost or GoBack.

I am using both but it seems redundant to me. If I upgrade GoBack to the Deluxe edition I can rescue files that have been overwritten just like I can in Ghost.

I am leaning toward dumping Ghost and upgrading GoBack. Is this a feasible option?
 

A:Ghost or GoBack???

Hi there,

My friend have copy of Goback installed in the gateway system. there is muliple physically installed in the system. Of course I presume that Goback have register or write something to the boot sector of the hard drive.

Unfortunately my friend have engage somebody to maintain the system, this stranger have accidentally formatted the master hard disk where Goback driver is installed. My friend happen to have a USB harddrive attached and being recognise as an external hard drive i.e. drive "f".

After the master hard drive have been installed with windows OS, I have tried to plug in the USB hard drive, unfortunately Windows are not able to recognise it and presume that the drive is not being formated. Windows prompt to format the drive. Until then I have cancel the task and still waiting what can be done to retrieve the information on the USB harddrive until I know about you.

Well based on your experience, do you think I can just reinstalled the Goback software at the formated harddrive, reconnecting the USB hard drive there after. Will Goback recognise the drive or the boot sector and the date in the drive?

Please do share with me your experience on this matter. Thank you...

Your soonest reply is highly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Dickson

I am using windows xp on a new dell. I installed an additional maxtor hardrive which is listed as drive #1. My original drive #0 is a western digital.
I am trying to install GoBack3. During installation, I receive an error message " The boot partition on disk #1 is not supported by GoBack. GoBack cannot be installed on this computer".

Has anyone run into this problem and, if so, how do I install the utility. Roxio has sold goback to symantec and now they won't give any support and symantec wants $30 to help which is outrageous.
I have not had good luck with xp system restore since everytime I try and use it, it says it cannot restore my system. I then have to turn it off to clear all of the old restore points and start over.

After re-installing windows I needed to re-install goback 3 but found when my wife transfered our cd's from the paper sleeve to jewel cases she threw out the sleeve which had the cd key on it. I can't seem to find any support for this program on the net. Is there any way to find a key or is this program destined for the trash?
