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

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y510p - Backup / Restore HDD Clone With Win 8 Pre-installed

Sep 18, 2013

I recently bought an ideapad y510p. It came with win8 pre-installed and I don't have any recovery CDs. I plan to play around with linux on this laptop, but don't want to lose win8. So before I potentially reformat everything away, I'm thinking of making a clone copy of my hard-disk to an external USB drive. The general plan is like this,
 
1. make copy of laptop HDD to external usb drive
2. muck around with linux - and stupidly reformat everything in the process
3. get fed up with linux and want to go back to windows
4. copy back data from external usb driver to latop HDD
5. return to comfort of win8
 
Will using this tool (clonezilla) work in the above scenario? [URL] ...
 
My intent with the backup, is that after I "restore" things, the "one key recovery" button should continue to work as before.

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.

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.

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?

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).

Dell Inspiron 15z :: Ultrabook Lost External Drive Backup Files To Recovery Creation?

Apr 3, 2013

Inspiron 15z Ultrabook, Windows 8, DELL System Recovery.

I have an external Seagate Expansion Drive 2TB and had backup files on it. I created a new partition by shrinking the E: volume and made F: to use for the DELL System Recovery.

I selected the F: partition when asked what drive to use. I was 100% certain E: would never chosen during any steps in the process. After it finished I looked in Computer and found both partitions had been formatted and a DBR_Boot placed in both. Yet E: (where personal files were stored) is basically empty other than what appears to be a boot up capability and F: has the recovery files.

Why has this happened? I need those files. Is there a way to reverse the process or will file recovery software be needed in an attempt to regain those files?

I can't believe this hasn't happened to other people, must be a common occurrence. What I could do to recover lost files.

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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y50-70 Backup Created And Recovery Drive Boots But Can't Find System Image

Dec 19, 2014

So as soon as I got my brand new Y50-70, and before doing anything on this laptop (not even installing new software), I went tried OneKey Recovery only to discover that it is broken.
 
I then tried my luck with Windows Recovery (the one provided with every Windows 8.1 copy, not unique to Lenovo):
 
I first went through system image creation on a recovery drive (1TB WD Elements USB HDD):
 
1. Find it on Control Panel:
2: Select it (Recovery option):
3. Create a recovery drive:
4.  Selected the F: drive (1TB, it's not a *flash* drive just an ordinary USB hdd, does it matter?):
5. Got a nice warning (indeed, this process reformatted the drive, to 32GB only, why 32GB and not the full 1TB?)
 
Now... let's see if I can restore from this newly created system image:
 
1. Rebooted from the newly created Recovery Drive (it actually boots!):
2. Selected "Use a device", then received this menu:
3. I selected EFI USB Device. It then went to an intermediate Lenovo boot splash:
4. And shortly after that (without me doing anything) a new prompt, to choose a language:
5. I selected English and then, got prompted for keyboard layout:
6. The system then system to restart again from the Recovery Drive, only to prompt me again with the "Choose an Option" screen (as in step #1). So, I selected "Troubleshoot" this time:
7. I then selected "Advanced options", and received this screen:
8. I then selected System Image Recoery and received this screen:
9. I selected the only option available (Windows 8.1), then got this "Cannot find system image":
10. Why??? I clicked cancel and I was prompted to select an image:
11. So I clicked Next, but got nothing to select:
12. Clicking the Advanced button only provides irrelevant options:

Acer :: ERecovery Custom Backup Vs Factory Default Backup

Jul 6, 2009

differences are between the two.

Does the factory default., only back up the files that were originally on the drive when I first bought it, regardless of what I install afterwards? and the Custom backsup everything? I noticed that Factory Default is 10GB, but the Custom is 29GB. This is confusing because I only install two small programs on top the Factory Default. WHat is the other 19GB?

I have a Aspire 6930G that came with 3 partitions.

After I make my backup image, so I still need the recovery partitions?

Apple :: Time Machine - Is It An Image Backup Or Just Data Backup

Jan 2, 2009

Back in my Windows days and for my servers at work (just a few), I always did the following to do backup:

1) DATA
Use SyncToy or copy the data folders (My Documents, etc.) to an external hard drive

2) OS and APPLICATIONS
Create an image using Acronis's TrueImage, so I don't have to re-install the applications or re-configure the OS

With Time Machine, I know it backups my User folder (Documents, Music, etc.), but does it also backup the computer settings, such that in the case of re-install, I just pop-in the original OSX Installation CD and restore from Time Machine without reconfiguring the OS AND re-installing the application again?

I noticed in the Time Machine hard drive there is also an Applications folder that contains the list of the same applications as installed in my MBP.

HP Envy M6-K010DX Recovery :: Drive Where Windows Is Installed Is Locked

Oct 28, 2014

Have an Envy M6-K010DX notebook. Due to an internet problem while upgrading from Win 8 to 8.1, the PC doesn't properly boot and Windows Explorer won't load. Decided to 'Refresh' the OS and went to the F11 restore utilities. When I go to the refresh utility and follow the prompts I reach a message that says, "The drive where windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again." I've searched support for unlocking instructions and aside from some bootrec commands (that didn't work - probably because I don't have a Win 8 disk) not much is available.
 
The only access I have for running commands is via the Task Manager and F11 command prompt. What is this 'locked' drive, anyway?

Acer :: Backup/Factory Recovery Make Your Own Factory Image?

Jan 12, 2009

I have been given an Acer 6930G by a family member to setup. After realising there's 0 discs included with the laptop, the Acer pop up message tells me I have to make my own factory default image. I have successfully made it on 2 DVDs, my question is now in the manual there is nothing about how to use it, I was wondering if anyone can share any insight to me as to how it works.

Basically I know it is probably a bootable DVD as the root of the DVD suggests (several "BOOT" files) I was wondering how it actually looks like? I haven't tested it yet as the user was extremely desperate to get it running so I had to give it up the moment the DVDs were made.

If I put the DVD in and select to boot from it at start up (before getting into windows) does it take me to some sort of custom screen where I can SELECT that I want to reformat and restore the laptop? I want to know what options I am given and I can only assume that it's the same for most laptops.

And I can only assume again, that if I factory restore it, it will come back with Vista activated and all the initial bloatware again, along with all the drivers for it (so I don't need to go track them down).

This is all I need to know, I wish I can test it but I can't even get the laptop back now (until it breaks ...)

If someone can post their experiences with it I will be grateful, this is just more for reassurance than anything, and confirm my assumptions? Many thanks in advance!

EDIT: I have discovered that I can launch that recovery app by pushing ALT+F10, I have managed to wrangle the laptop temporarily to test and have discovered that I can choose from 2 back up options, but I dare not go any further, can someone tell me the next steps? One says factory default, and the other is user's backup.

I can guess that if I choose the first option, factory default, it'll ask for the DVDs I have created? And the 2nd option will restore a backup I made selecting the user option on the recovery app.

HP G7-2217cl Recovery :: Windows 8.1 Installed Now Received Fatal Device Hardware Error

Nov 10, 2014

Windows 8.1 kept popping up to install update.  I would refuse it.  Then recently it updated itself.  After that, i noticed it took a little longer for my laptop to boot.  It would show a blue screen for a little bit then it would boot.  Yesterday, I received an error (can't remember what it said) needed to restart because of an error.  I ran the Hard Disk Test and Quick and then the extensive test.  it stops at one sec remaining and noting happens.  I did get a fatal device hardware error.  Can the update to Windows 8.1 cause this to happen?

Dell :: M4400, Pre-installed Win7 Ok, Re-installed Win7 Not Ok...

Feb 18, 2010

I received my Precision M4400 with Win 7 Pro x64 pre-installed, and using it for audio recording and playing everything works great. However, since Win7x64 drivers do not exist for some of my audio devices,

I decided to put in a new HD (same as the original, only larger) double-booting XPx86 and Win7x64. So I installed XP on one partition of the new HD and Win7x64 from the CD that shipped with the M4400. Big problem...

Neither XPx86 nor the re-installed Win7x64 are able to deliver anything but crackles and pops and noise only slightly resembling music. Forget about recording...

Apple :: Mac DVD Backup

Oct 30, 2009

The Mac DVD Back-Up Guide

This is a guide on backing up DVDs on a Mac. I myself own the old iMac 21 inch running OS X.

One day I was like hmm, what if I lose some DVDs, how would I ever watch them again? I was like wait, I could always back them up. But then I realized, I was using a Mac and wondered if it was possible, as I had never backed up any DVDs before and I thought all the software was mostly all for Windows (I was a Mac noob, forgive me).

Well it turns out there are some fine programs that make it easier.

Some info you should know before I start:

-Try at your own risk! I know there isnt really that much of a risk, and I highly doubt any of this will somehow destroy your computer, but there always is that far-off slim chance.

-This was all done on the old generation iMac all in one, Intel (this is important), 1 GB of RAM, ATI Radeon HD 2400, 250GB HD, Apple OS X. I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS WILL WORK ON SNOW LEOPARD. However, I think it should, since there really arent that much differences between the two operating systems. HOWEVER, since the required downloads were released and designed for OS X, I wouldn't give it a shot, but it's your choice.......
