How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

I bought a 3.5 External hard drive enclosure for a 1TB hard drive. The PC recognizes it but not under the removable drives


right click on "My Computer" and select "Manage". Then go to "disk management" once loaded you will see your drive. You probably have to initialize the drive and assign it a drive letter. all that can be done from right there.

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.


You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

How to transfer files from my old HP Pavilion 8650C to Dell computer or seagate external hard drive?


With the drive plugged in, open My Computer. You should see an icon labeled something or another that relates to your external hard drive. If you cannot determine which it is, unplug the hard drive. One of the icons should vanish. When you plug it back in, open the drive that appears. In order to transfer files, simply find the ones which you wish to move on your computer (most likely in the My Documents folder), then copy and paste them into the hard drive. Tell me if you have any more issues, and vote if this helped!

Need instructions for eGo portable hard drive. This shold ave come wit th purchase but did not.


there's no much need for instructions.
you just plug the hd into a USB port avaliable in your computer. the operating system should be able to recognize it a few seconds after you have plugged the hd into the usb port.

some hd may require for 2 usb to be connected to the computer for the computer to see it.. usually they come with a "y" usb cord. one goes to the hd and 2 usb type a cord go to 2 usb ports on the computer

to check to make sure the computer sees the hd. go into my computer and check if a removable storage device has appear.

also check your hd is on, some external hd may have switch to turn them on.
also check if your hd requires external power if it does it should come with a power connector that needs to be connected and plugged into the power outlet for it to work.

post your finding if you need more help.

I just bought an iOmega eGo 160GB external hard drive and have no idea how to use it once I've installed the program. Help!!


From what I'm finding; this drive is a USB 2.0 drive. First, you'll need to plug the drive into the computer via the supplied USB cable (if it came with one) and any AC power for the drive if it requires it.

Then, your PC should detect it and you then need to run the software for it to be configured properly.

To use the drive, simply (if in windows) double click my computer and the drive will probably come up with a name such as eGo or iOmega Hard Disk or possibly even External Hard Disk. From there, double click that drive and start copy files! :)
