Dell Vostro 3300 :: Backup And Recovery Disk Won't Work

Apr 7, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3300.  Windows 7 OS.  Hard drive went out. Replaced hard drive. Reinstalled Windows 7.  Used backup system disk that I made with Recovery Manager back in December 2012.  It looked like it was working properly, but after using all backup disks, got message image could not be applied.  Started over, reinstalled Windows 7.  Put in #1 backup system disk. When drop down box is displayed asking which backup to use, I choose 12-29-2012 like I did before.  Nothing happens. It just sits there. Next button can not be used (it is greyed out).

HP Pavilion Dv6226us OS/Software :: Create VISTA Recovery Disk - Backup Partition Removed

Apr 8, 2014

A friend brought over her HP Pavilion dv6226us Laptop running VISTA.  The hard drive was full and the machine could not be used for anything.  Would like to wipe the dirve and start over, but need a VISTA recovery disk for the machine.  The D: partition where the  backup files from HP resides was removed from the drive so Recovery manager is not an option.  Checked the HP support site and there are not recovery disks available for HP for this model laptop with VISTA, at least when I entered all the information on the site it did not list anything.
 
Is there anything that can be done by copying the correct files from the WINDOWS directory on the C drive.

Dell :: Vostro V13 Vs Vostro 3300

Mar 9, 2010

I know the Vostro 3300 just came out.

For those who own the V13. Do you miss having HDMI? How's the build quality on the V13? And with the Vostro 3300 out now, the Vostro 3300 would be a better buy, no?

Any differences that I should take note of?

Dell :: Vostro 3300 First Impression

Apr 16, 2010

My brandnew DELL Vostro 3300 has arrived, some days earlier than expected.

First impressions:

- Notebook is quite small, although somewhat bigger than I thought. (But that may come from the fact that I did much webbrowsing on a Motorola Milestone yesterday :-))
- Build quality seems okay. For the price in fact good.
- Notebook is very lightweight. I have to measure the exact weight, but it feels much lighter than a DELL Studio 15.
- Power supply unit is very small and lightweight. Seems to be the same as the Studio 15's.
- Display is bright, colours are bright, seems to be an exact (smaller) copy of the Vostro 3700 with the same very limited viewing angle (not much of a problem to me when you do mostly office work and software engineering with dark letters on bright background, but could be a problem if you want to play games with mostly dark background).
- Keyboard is backlit, surprisingly good.
- Display and keyboard have relatively much flex.
- Battery is 4 cell, seems to last approximately 2:30 (with maximum brightness, WLAN on and light office work)
- It's very fast.
- It doesn't emit much heat, feels quite cool.
- It's relatively silent, so far.

Dell :: Vostro 3300 Quality/performance?

Apr 3, 2010

Does anyone one here have one and can comment on its quality/performance?

I'm looking at the i5/310M, I'd prefer the i3/310M but that doesn't seem to be an option.

I'm hoping for 4hrs of battery, is that being to hopeful?

Dell :: Buying A Vostro 3300, Memory And O

May 3, 2010

Im thinking on buying a Vostro 3300 from the Dell website.

Seems as a good lappy for editing text and watching some videos and movies.

How much ram can I add to it? Im planning on buying it with only 2GB and planning to upgrade it to its max. Which I don't know exactly what is.

Also it comes with Intel i3 350 M, any advice on this processor?
The default OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

Considering the processor, should I upgrade the OS to 64 bit? Does that actually make a difference at all?

Acer :: Getting Recovery Disk To Work

Sep 18, 2008

Bought 5530 in August but already need to run recovery disks as the photo gallery constantly crashes and using restore to an earlier date does not work. I burnt two DVD's when I got it and they looked OK. However after changing start up in BIOS to dvd drive then restarting holding down f8, when pressing the complete restore tab nothing happens except a message saying no restore dvd or HD can be found. Cannot think what to try as the disks and dvd drive appear fine. I wish they included the disks with machine like sony do then you would be 100% sure it is not the disks at fault. Anyone else encounter this? I am sure the problem with the photo gallery is not a virus as I do not use the machine on the internet

HP Pavilion Dv6000 Recovery :: Low Disk Space On Recovery Disk D Drive

Oct 17, 2011

I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.

Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 :: Can't Create Whole Disk Backup

Oct 8, 2011

I recently bought a new Inspiron 15R 5521 preinstalled with Windows 8and I have never powered it on because I want to make an entire disk backupas it is in a "pure" state.

I removed its harddrive (Western Digital, 1 TB) from my laptop to connectit to my desktop with 2 harddrives (one for system (Windows 7, 64 bit); the otherfor data (2 TB)), but never started the installed system to prevent the systemfrom writing some system information into the Inspiron disk.Instead I inserted a Windows PE CD embedded with Acronis True Image 2013.I chose "Disk Backup". The Inspiron harddrive had 6 partitions.The destination drive (where the image created was to be saved) was the 2-TB data disk.Clicked "Finish" and writing Partition 1...done, 2...ok, .... 6 ok and"Backup Process Failed!" at the final stage.

The final stage seems to be a partition layout.BTW the Acronis backup system has an option "Ignore Errors" (force complete).I gave it a try too, but the image created was incomplete with only 4 partitions.Macrium Rescue Disk is a similar one but with no ignore error option.I also tried this and failed at the final stage. No image created.The error message was "Unable to read from disk".Both the Inspiron disk and the destination drive happened to be Western Digital ones.I tried Western Digital Lifeguard checker on each and found no bad sectors.

HP Pavilion G6 Recovery :: How To Backup Files During Recovery Process

Jan 13, 2015

I want to do a recovery of my Pavilion g6, I will have to do this from the recovery disk (D) on my laptop since I don't have it on a seperate disk or DVD.
 
My questions are:
 
- Will I have the original storage on my harddisk (my notebook has a problem since refreshing it, after the automatic recovey I lost about 40 gig storage and now it's more than 50 gigs after 4 weeks of having this problem)
 
- How to backup my files during the recovery process, will my computer store it on the pc or will I have to back them up to a disk or pendrive?
 
- These problems started after someone else used my computer. Could it be a virus infection?
 
My option is to go to ask the seller to do it for me, but if there is a way I can do this myself that will save me money.
 
 I have a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC.
 
Processor:                      AMD A4-4300M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
 
Product number:         C2N63UA#ABA
 
Operating system:      Windows 8,  64-bit

Apple :: Disk Backup - Cloning - MAC Environment

Feb 4, 2009

I will probably re-switch on MAC Laptop soon ( last time I owned a G3) and was wondering if things have changed since then....:

What I do with my windows machine :

I use Acronis True Image to build an image of the OS partition along with software ( except data stored in a different partition) and save it in two different places, one of them an external USB drive.

In case of virus/driver problem/damaged OS but still bootable, I recover from the image right trough the Acronis software installed on windows.
If the OS is not bootable, I can use the Bootable Rescue CD that I can build with the same software, boot the PC with it and voila'...

I remember in G3 days I used Carbon Copy Cloner to save -not "images"- but snapshot of the OS partition to external drive and eventually recover the main OS partition booting from it, just in case. Can it still be done in Intel/Leopard days?

I also remember that the external boot could be performed only from a firewire drive, is it still this way, or can I use a normal USB drive ( HPS+ formatted)?

And, last question : is the 800 Fw physical port compatible with a 400? ( can I plug my M-Audio Firewire audio device straight to a MBP with a normal FW cable?)

HP Pavilion M7-1015dx Recovery :: System Backup Image Vs System Recovery Discs?

Sep 12, 2012

I just purchased a new Pavilion m7-1015dx Laptop and need to make the System Recovery Discs ... (which I realize restores the Laptop to factory default).. btw, I've already created the System Repair Disc.
 
However, I read an article about creating a System Backup Image that allows you to Recovery EVERYTHING if lost, all your installed programs, etc.
 
First Question ::: if I do the System Backup IMAGE ... Do I still need to create the System Recovery disc's (mfg's default) also??
 
The Second Question ::: If I create the System Recovery discs do I still need that Recovery Partition ??
 
I am really really wanting to partition my C: drive ... it's huge plus I hate seeing storage folders intermingled with system folders .. Currently using a Symbol/Character to separate them.
 
As of now, I can't partition the C:drive as all partitions are used.. max is 4 and I've got 4 .... C:drive,   System Partition,   HPTools Partition, and   Recovery Partition.

HP Pavilion Dv6000 Recovery :: Bootmgr Is Missing - No Installation Or Recovery Disk

Mar 2, 2013

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 and run Windows Visa Home Edition.I wanted to restore my laptop to its factory settings but the Recovery Manager wouldn't work. When I clicked on it it would just restart the computer without anything else happening. I then right clicked on the computer >manage> disk manager and made the recovery partition active. When I rebooted the computer it began showing:Bootmgr is missingPress Ctrl+Alt+DeleteWhich of course leads back to the same message after te computer reboots. I can't access F8 key. Only F10 (Bios) works. I don't have a recovery or installation CD as it didn't come with the laptop when I purchased it.Is there anyway I can change the active partition back to the C drive, this disabling the recovery partition? I read that it was possible to access disk manager from cmd prompt window, but I don't know how to access it since the F8 key won't work (makes just a bipping noise when pressed)?I am also out of the country so can't mail my laptop to HP to have it fixed.

Dell Inspiron 14R :: Windows 8 OS Backup Or Recovery Options

Apr 25, 2013

I just purchased an Inspiron 14R for my granddaughter (graduation present). I know Dell doesn't ship OS Recovery disks anymore (poor decision), but I thought I'd be able to create one from the Dell Backup and Recovery app.

However, all I see is the "System Recovery" option, which doesn't work. It fails after the first DVD. I don't have a flash drive to try that option yet. 

But I don't really want 4 DVDs of a full system backup; I just want a Windows 8 OS Recovery DVD. The manual seems to say I have one opportunity to make one, but I've never seen that option.

There must be a way to get or make a simple Windows 8 OS backup--why is this so difficult?

Acer :: Aspire 5515 Recovery/backup

Feb 7, 2009

I bought the Walmart special and am actually happy with it. I didn't have much money to spend and after removing all the crapplications, installing AVG etc... it's running well. If I had XP to install I would have done it from the start but I'll live. I'm even managing to run WoW with no issues after tweaking in game specs and playing in the Catalyst Control Center.

Now...my problem. I uninstalled all the Acer utilities and now eRecovery will not work for me. I'd like to back up the OS and drivers so if need be I can restore to factory or at least close. Can I do this with NTI Backup Now? or will that just back up folders and files? If not what can I use to make restore discs.

Acer :: Recovery Partition Backup Howto

Apr 14, 2010

I have the AS1410 with win7. I couldn't get the virtual cd solution to work (perhaps that is because the version is now 10 not 9 or that I'm on win7 64bit). So my approach is to copy the the first 2 partitions, PQService and the 100MB one, and track 0 (MBR). These are all that is needed to build a new system on a new disk (I think). So here is my how to:

1. Grab your free copy of Paragon Backup and Restore from here and install it and get a free serial number from the web page it gives when you install.

2. Run it and choose backup disk or partition. Tick to save track 0 + MBR, and the first 2 partitions before C: to an empty directory on C:. Remember to apply changes then wait for this finish.

3: Copy this directory to a PC with a DVD burner.

Inside the directory you'll find the archive files split into DVD size chunks. Burn these to DVDs together with downloads of Paragon Backup and Restore, 32bit and 64bit to cover all bases if you want, plus the serial number, and a text file telling yourself what to do, which is: Install Paragon Backup and Restore, combine all the archive files into one directory on a hard disk, then rebuild track 0 and the first 2 partitions.
