Keep getting error message when I try to back up


Hi Steffani
Thats not much Info to go on.....?
Are you using TimeMachine or perhaps Carbon Copy Cloner to "BackUp"?

Is the drive full? Click on drive icon then Cmd I for Info.
Use the Drive Utility in your Applications / Utilities folder to wipe and erase & reformat your hard drive.
The best way to Test your drive is to Run the Drive Utility once a year, If security Option is selected it will test the whole surface for faults. But it takes 2-3 hours (good for overnight test)
Make sure you copy any needed files first.

My rule of thumb is
If your in an Office environment working on the computer all day then use TimeMachine
Otherwise use CCC as TimeMachine hourly backups are a waste of time for the average home user. And harder to recover data.
One CC Clone made every couple of months is adequate and if you need a little more then drag the USER folder over to the external HD each week. The rest should be in your clone, Which.... By-The-Way is Bootable in an emergency,
Thats why we call it a Clone.
Just hold the option key down directly after Power On.
The choice of boot drive will show up on Screen.

Cheers

Can windows 10 be backed up on an external hard drive?


You could use a programme called Symantec Ghost, it basically makes an exact copy or clone of your current Hard Drive. You will obviously need to purchase a licence for the software but there are alternatives which are free.

One such programme is Macrium Reflect, you can download it from http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx

It's not a typical backup, as in it will backup individual files and folder you choose but the entire OS and anything you have stored or installed. As long as your external Hard Drive is big enough, you should have no issues making a Ghost Clone.

How to change the hard drive that contains the operational system in an Acer EasyStore H341 server?


Transfer an Operating System to a New Hard Drive


When replacing an old hard drive, a process known as cloning is the easiest and most thorough method for transferring data between the old and new hard drives.


A cloning utility takes a snapshot of your current hard drive and then re-creates that snapshot on your new hard drive.


The process clones everything, including the operating system, installed applications, settings and personal files.


Create a system restore disk so that you can return your system to its previous condition if an error occurs.


You can use a backup and restore utility provided with your operating system, or find one for free or for purchase on the Internet.


Many cloning utilities can also create system restore disks.


Shut down the computer and remove power.


Physically install the new hard drive.


Restore power and boot up the computer.

Ensure that your operating system recognizes that the new hard drive has been installed.


Pick the cloning utility that works best for you. (See Below for some options.)

Copy an OS to Another Hard Drive


Copying an OS or operating system to another hard drive can serve several functions.

Some simply want to move their current operating environment to a new PC, while others are replacing an old system hard drive with a newer one and want to avoid the hassle of updating and reinstalling.


The process of copying your operating system to another hard drive is a very easy one, in fact, and can be accomplished by anyone with nothing more than some software and some time.


Install Acronis True Image and launch it from its installation icon.

Click the "Utilities" button from the left menu bar.


Click the "Clone Disk" button from the right pane of the main program window.

This will cause a dialog box to appear.


Click the "Next" button on the bottom-right corner of the dialog box.


Select the disk with the operating system you wish to copy from the drive list and click the "Next" button.


This will begin an examination of your hard disk that will finish in a few minutes.


Select the destination disk from the hard drive list and click the "Next" button.


Choose the "As-is" option for how you would like to handle your partitions.


This option merely lets you decide whether to keep all partitions on the drive or copy just the data onto one blank partition on the new drive.


Click the "Finish" button, and Acronis will prompt you that your system needs to be restarted to begin the cloning process.


The restart will happen automatically when you click the "Finish" button.


Allow the computer to restart, and Acronis will launch prior to the operating system and begin the cloning procedure.


This process may take several minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the operating system and whether there are any installed applications.


Restart you computer once again after Acronis has completed the cloning procedure.

The software will notify you when the cloning has finished.


Boot into your operating system and use your new operating system installation as normal. You may now remove your old operating system drive or format it as you desire.


Hope this helps.

Can a old 3gbs 1.5 terrabyte western digital hdd be cloned to a new 6gbs ssd


not sure exactly what you are referring to
there are ways of cloning an entire disk to another disk or copy the contents of a hard drive to another hard drive

How to Copy Contents of One Hard Drive to Another


There can be several reasons for needing to copy data from one hard drive to another; for instance, if you are migrating data to a new computer or hard drive or if you just want to make sure you have a working backup.


The simplest method is to just drag and drop the contents from one hard drive to the other. But this method will not work well for copying complicated things like operating systems.


To do that, you need to use a hard-drive cloning program.

The cloning program will copy your old hard, in its entirety, to your new hard drive.



Connect both drives to your computer.

This can be done by installing them both inside the tower or by connecting them via USB external enclosures.


Open your operating system's file explorer utility. Select the hard drive you wish to copy. Highlight all of the contents of the hard drive.


Drag and drop the highlighted files to your back up hard drive.


Allow the files to copy over to the new drive. Depending on the amount of data you are copying, the process could take a couple of hours.


Clone the Hard Drive


Download and install one of the many programs that will allow you to clone a hard drive. Cloning a drive makes an exact copy of the drive on your new drive.


It's the only way to accurately back up operating systems, as none of the data is rearranged at all during the cloning process.


Connect both drives to your computer, either by installing them or connecting them via USB external enclosures.


Open your cloning program. Select the "Clone Disk" function.

Choose the drive you wish to clone and the destination drive for the data and start the program.


Do not do anything else on your computer while the drive is being cloned, as it will change the data on the drive and disrupt the process.


Cloning a drive can take a few hours.

Once it is done, you will have an identical copy of the old drive on your new drive.


hope this helps

How to Copy My Operating System to a New Hard Drive


Install the new hard drive into the computer.

Power down the computer completely.


Remove the power cords, the monitor and any peripheral devices.

Unscrew, pop off or slide off the computer case.

SATA drives take a SATA power cable; IDE (ATA) drives take a power cable and ribbon cable.

If you are unsure of what type of drive you have, consult your manual.


Slide the new drive into an available drive bay, then screw the drive into place.

Make sure all of the cables are secure, then put the case back on the computer.


Connect the power cords, the monitor, and any necessary peripherals.

Power on the computer.


Format and configure the drive as per detailed in the drive's manual.

This process will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.


Boot to the main drive (the drive with the OS on it).

Download and install a disk cloning software

Select your "Source" drive, as well as any partitions.

Your source drive is the drive containing the OS you want to copy.


Check the hard drive data located to verify that you are selecting the appropriate drive.

Select the "Destination" drive, as well as any partitions.


Your destination drive is where your source drive's files will be copied to.

Click "Next." Confirm that your selections are correct. Click "Next" again.


Review the task summary.

If everything is correct, click "Run Now."


Allow the disk cloning software to perform the cloning process.

Do not turn off the computer during this process.


When the cloning process has completed, right-click "Start," then click "Explorer."

Click the destination drive and make sure all of the files have properly transferred over.


hope this helps

My Hard drive has only 6% space left on it.Can i connect external Hard drive to it?


> can I connect an external hard-drive to it?

Probably.

However, an external hard-drive should _ONLY_ be used to make an _ADDITIONAL_ copy of your important files. It should _NOT_ be used to store the _ONLY_ copy of some files -- if/when the drive fails, the _ONLY_ copy of those files will be _GONE_. Not good!

Instead, it's time to purchase an additional "internal" disk-drive, which will be _NEWER_ and _LARGER_ and _WARRANTIED_ and to use software to "clone" your old hard-drive onto your new hard-drive.

Then, disconnect the old, out-of-warranty, disk-drive, and boot Windows from the new disk-drive.

Then, purchase an EMPTY disk-drive enclosure, for about $30,
install your old disk-drive into the enclosure, to build your own external storage device. Once you're satisfied that your new "clone" disk-drive is working 100% correctly, delete all the files from the OLD disk-drive, and then make a backup of your files onto the now-empty disk-drive.

How do i clone my hard drive onto an external hard drive


Are you using Windows? If you are using Windows, go to Start => Programs => Accessories => System Tools => Backup. In the backup wizard that opens, choose which backup type you want and you can choose your backup destination. Choose your Seagate Expansion external drive for your backup location so that Windows can store an image of your current system into your external drive.

Does the external hard-drive copy and backup installed software that is on my original computer if i try to plug the external hard-drive into another computer?


No, installed software cannot be copied just like that. in order to use install software installed on one hard driver to another you must clone the hard driver and of course you may jot want to do that. You may copy the files but you will not get the software installed.

Help to backup full computer programs & docs with WD Passport 160


Try going to the "Computer" icon and look for the external drive. Open the ext. drive folder and look for the InstallSeagateManager icon, the Application one. Double-click on it and it will allow you to install the software to do a backup on your new computer. First thing you should see is the Language Selection screen. I think you can take it from there!
