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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Backup Files From Hard Drive

Feb 7, 2014

My sons laptop has died and needs returned for warranty work - likely a problem with the mother board.  It was suggested that we backup files on the hard drive before sending.  I pulled the hard drive and attached it to another computer via Serial ATA to USB cable.  A portion of the hard drive can be accessed through Windows Explorer which shows 25GB of the 750GB hard drive and only shows an applications and a drivers folder.  Word documents, data and pictures cannot be found. 
 
I tried to take ownership of the hard drive thinking that this might make the data visible but it did not. I expect there is about 150GB of file storage (excluding programs) that we would like to back-up.  Am concerned that the hard drive may have been damaged but the data that is accessible seems to be whole and intact.

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.

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:

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: S1 Genuine Battery Not Attached Message Appear After Win 8.1 Starts

Jan 20, 2014

I am having a message that says "Genuine Lenovo Battery Not Attached" message that appears after Windows 8.1 starts up. A similar sort of message appears before even Windows boots up, and I need to press the 'Esc' key in order for Windows to boot. This seems to have happened after a recent Windows update. I have uninstalled an reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management Driver but it does not appear to have fixed the issue. My BIOS is the latest version.
 
This issue is on my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S1.

Dell Inspiron E6330 :: Program To Generate Backup Image Of A Series Of INP Files?

Mar 5, 2013

We had one of our new Inspiron E6330 laptops have issues with the VGA port the other day, and in the course of the Dell technician making things worse, he messed up the hard drive.  In the end, he left us with a new hard drive, a directory full of files from some unknown backup program, and the old hard drive - which he unfortunately wiped & reinstalled Windows on.  He wasn't too clever.  It seems that the backup program he ran left us with a directory full of files which I can't identify.  I wasn't actually in the office when the Dell tech was on-site, so I'm left trying to piece this back together for my user.

The directory listing:

03/05/2013 07:04 PM <DIR>
.03/05/2013 07:04 PM <DIR>
..10/12/2012 09:39 AM
153,486 APPS.INP10/12/2012 09:39 AM

[Code] ....

The XML files are interesting - include.xml is a listing of all the user's files from the disk, and migr.xml contains a description of the old system.

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.......

Apple :: Backup Of Bootcamp

Dec 21, 2009

I've tried disk utility to create an image of it; it won't boot after this and once the bootcamp wizard has been run, still doesn't recognise that an os is on the partition.

Also tried Winclone; of which has to have exactly the same partition size as previous otherwise it doesn't work properly.

Can anyone suggest something like symantec ghost or osx equiv? Same for backing up osx partition; want something that I can just restore if needed. Used CCC but for some reason cannot get it to not keep all my previous files, so when restoring it also restores all deleted files too.

Apple :: Backup Medium For My Server

Mar 10, 2010

We have a server and 10 iMac workstations.

My concern is twofold
1. because these tapes are proprietary, if the drive goes down, the tape can't be read by any other machine. I had this happen a couple of years ago when the tape drive broke and because it was discontinued, I have all 5 daily tapes that could no longer be read and cost almost $100 each. Luckily I have never had to restore from a tape, but if I did, I would have been out of luck.

2. The cost. These drives are expensive. Would it not make more sense to have a couple of 16gig USB flash drives to rotate through. They are more portable and I can do a restore on any networked machine.

Or we can simply do a backup to a networked drive. I like the flash drive better than the last option because it can be moved to a safe part of the office to protect against a water pipe burst or something like that. the total data requiring backup is just under 1 gig

Acer :: Full System Backup, Do They Include OS

Nov 15, 2009

If I create a backup, Is the OS backed up?

Or It justs backs up the files that I've installed and my documents and stuff?

I have a Acer Aspire 2920, and I'd like to back up my Vista Home Premium incase that I need it back because I want to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it.

Ubuntu is great for documents and internet since I dont want anything else in the way like viruses and malware or other bugs and worms.

And yes, my Vista Home Premium is LICENSED.

So, What do I need to do to back up my OS?
