    Did you format the flash drive before you started?

Make sure both the hard disk and the flash drives have same format, such as FAT32 or NTFS.

The Windows Backup and Restore feature allows you to save files and system images to external backup devices such as hard drives and flash drives. However, backing up files become problematic if the directory your backing up files from isn't configured properly, or if you're having issues with the devices you're backing files to. There are ways to solve or work around backup problems quickly and safely.

Hard Drive b> A backup will not complete if the files you're backing up exceed the amount of space left on the external hard drive. If you're backing up large system files, Microsoft recommends saving the backup to an external hard drive that can hold at least 200 GB. If you're running out of space, you must delete content to create space for others or use another hard drive. Error Codes In some cases, Windows displays the following error codes when it's unable to complete a backup: "0x80070001 (Invalid Function)" or "0x81000037: Windows Backup failed while trying to read from the shadow copy on one of the volumes being backed up." These error messages usually appear if Windows is unable to backup a specific library or if you opt out of adjusting your backup settings and settle for the default settings in the Windows Backup and Restore Feature. Reparse Point b> If you're unable to backup a specific library and run into error code messages, removing the reparse point allows you to complete the backup. A reparse point is a file that contains information about the user on a computer. If it doesn't point to a location that contains some of the data you want to backup, error messages appear when you try to back up your files. Type "CMD" in the Start Search box to open the Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt, typing "DIR /AL /S" and pressing Enter lists the reparse points. Each entry says "JUNCTION," which also means reparse point. The entries also tell you the location of the reparse points in Windows Explorer. If you locate a specific reparse point in Windows Explorer, delete its mounted volume from the device's Properties. Once deleted, you should be able to back up your files. Discs b> If you're backing up files to a disc, you'll run into problems if the discs are non-rewritable and already contain data, or if they are severely scratched or damaged. Non-rewritable discs can only be used once, while rewritable discs can be used to read and write data several times. If the CD or DVD you're using is severely scratched, the optical disc drive spins harder than usual in an attempt to read it. If it's incapable of reading the disc, the backup feature may freeze or display an error.

How to choose a backup device


Hello all,

I work in data recovery and I'm always being asked what kind of backup device my customers should use. The fact is, there are a lot of choices and a lot of different situations with different answers.

Whatever device you choose for backup, remember the most important part of backing up is to always have more than one copy. Your backup device does you little good if it holds the only copy of your files.

USB Flash drives:
Pro's Cons
Most Inexpensive Easy to damage
Easiest to Transport Easy to Lose
High Compatibility Difficult to recover
Fast copy speeds

External Hard Drives:

Pro's Cons
Inexpensive Some are bulky
Higher Capacity Greater damage if dropped
Easy to transport Can be expensive to recover
High Compatibility Some require external power
Faster Copy Speeds
Easier to recover
More rugged

Secondary Hard drive(internal)

Pro's Cons
Inexpensive Not optional on most laptops
Higher Capacity Not optional on all Desktops
Fully compatible Can fail simultaneously
Fastest Copy Speeds Does not protect data if PC Stolen
Easy to Recover Requires some knowledge to install
More Rugged
Less risk of damage

NAS Box or Small Server

Pro's Cons
Higher Capacity Higher Cost
Redundancy is Optional Requires more knowledge to setup
Accessible to all PC's
on your network at once
Fast Copy Speeds
Low risk of damage
Compatible with most PC


RAID5 NAS or Server

Pro's Cons
Highest Capacity Highest Cost
Highest Redundancy Requires most knowledge to Setup
Fastest Copy Times Requires specialized equipment or software
Accessible to all PC's Most expensive to recover if failed
on your network at once
Ability to survive single
drive failures without
data loss.


Now, armed with that short list of options, let's help you decide which option best suits you. If you move around a lot, you go to school, work out of the office or travel for work a USB flash drive is often the simplest form of backup and allows you to move data between home, office or school without lugging a large drive around. we recommend these as a part of most peoples backup solution. Next you will want a more stable form of backup(harder to damage).

For your tougher backup device you will have to decided what kind of budget you have, how much data will need to be backed up and how often. If you have a great deal of data from several computers in your home or office you will likely want to use a NAS box or setup extra drive(s) in one of your existing desktops to use as a server. If you only have one or two computers or the budget just won't cover a RAID or NAS solutions you can simply purchase an external USB or eSATA hard drive, usually less than $100. This can be moved between computers and used for backing up.

Now remember to Sync your data. This means anything you update or create while away that is saved on your USB flash needs to be copied into your computer and your computer needs to be backed up onto the external drive or server.

How to backup files


There are numerous ways to backup your data. here are a few:

1) Use a CD or DVD writer to save them. Best to use a CD-RW or DVD-RW so you can use them over and over.

2) Use a flash drive. You can purchase up to 8GB or even 16GB for a reasonable price these days.

3) You can install a second hard drive.

4) You can use an online backup service.

if you need more specifics, just comment back and I will try to assist further.

Thanks for using Fixya.

If you have not tried this already, go to control panel, click on administrative tools, then double click computer management. In the left pane under computer management, click on disk management.
Make sure your Kingston data disk is plugged in to your usb port. In the right pane you should see your flash disk represented by a white bar with blue line on top. Right-click on the white bar and select "delete partition" Once the partition is deleted, right-click the bar once again and select create partition. Once you have created this partition, you should have the use of the maximum capacity of the flash drive.

Kingston 4GB Data Traveler USB 2.0 flash drive not recognized by eMachines T1090 with Windows XP Home Edition. Says it needs a driver????


probably,the driver was not installed by default.

1. launch the flash drive web site and download the driver for flash drive.

2. test the flash drive with windows xp service pack 2 operating system,if it works without a driver. then providing a driver for your window will do.or upgrade the os

Backing up a Quicken file


This is probably due to an update. Quicken and quickbooks perform updates in the back ground on a frequent basis. The easiest way to take care of this problem would be to create a directory called backup on the flash drive and instruct quicken to backup to it.

Provided you're using windows XP, click on My Computer, select the icon for your flash drive, F: Right click and create a new folder and name it backup. In quicken when you go to backup, just change where it says F:\ to F:\backup

this should fix your problem. Please email back if you have any problems getting it to work.
