Can't Do a Restore

I bought Aloha Bob to restore some pictures we lost. I used the program several years ago to back up the files, then uninstalled the program, then bought it again to get these pictures back. I had five 4.7 GB disks that I backed it up on. When I browsed to restore, with disk 5 in the drive, I got the following message.

File or Catalog may be damaged or incomplete.
File:D:\bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip
Error Code: 20136
Operation: Load from storage device, data is invalid.

Please Help. Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls copy & burn the 5th disc on a new blank DVD disc. Nero and perhaps other DVD burning utilities have this feature of copying an entire disc making an exact duplicate.

Performing the copy/burn would serve several purposes:
force the computer to read the D:\bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip as just a single file to be copied, not as a zip file;
create a new identical 5th disc;
verify the integrity of the D:\bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip.

An alternative is to copy the file D:\bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip to your hard drive, extract into a temporary folder the contents or apply zip repair utilities. Thereafter, zip compress the ontents of the temporary folder and name it "bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip", burn into a new DVD as your new 5th disc.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Ok. That looks bad. one of the main problems with these back up tools is that over the years the versions change, and the techniques change too. May be the tool requires you to put all the backups together and then recover. Just try it and see if it works. Recovering these catalogs(incase they are broken) is pretty tough and may require programming knowledge. The simplest thing you can do is request the product support for an older version of the software.

Good luck,
Sai.

    Remember if the file is properly recovered then it obviously wont be a problem extracting from a zip file or RaR file. Its the recovery that you should emphasize on.

If you go to D: can you open the zip file on its own? its possible that the disc may have failed as the years passed by, how does the surface of the disc look?


try to open the zip file by going to D: then simply open the file, try to right click and select extract try that and report back.

    If you get message:

    File or Catalog may be damaged or incomplete.

    File:D:\bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip

    Error Code: 20136


    thant means that the original files :bob,jo, pictures, & backup-base-022507.zip
    had been damaged, and part of the data is missing.

    When this happen it is usually impossible to recover the files, zip repair tools usually do not work other that for plain text or other similar simple files format.

    If you are reading files from a CD you can try washing the CD under tap water, and drying carefully with a soft cloth, taking care not to leave any water, or cloth hairs, or you risk to damage your DVD drive.

    If it still does not work, there is no simple way to recover the files.

    If the data inside is important , the only way out is contacting a professional recovery service, like the one below:

    Acodisc CD data recovery from CDs, DVDs and Flash Media

Restore point


Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows 7 usually takes several minutes Here's How:
  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use. Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
    Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
    Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
  7. Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
  8. System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
    Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
  9. Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
  10. Click Close.
  11. Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
    If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
    If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

How do I uninstall Pumatech Intellisync Desktop 5.01? The uninstall feature from Pumatech is corrupted and Windows XP uninstall from control panel gives the same message. This program has totally messed up...


The only thing I can think of if both places to uninstall are corrupt, is using system restore to take your pc back to a date before you installed the Puma software. If you are sure about when you installed it, you can use system restore by clicking on start, slide up to programs move up to accessories and then find system tools - and move to system restore and click on it. It will take you to a calendar of restoration points, choose one that was before the date you installed Puma. It will do some work on the pc, and then turn off and reboot back up and tell you if it was successful or not.

Uninstalling problem of antivirus software


First.. install a different antivirus program while you are fixing this installation. Try microsoft security essentials or AVG.
Then.
Check your program files folder for any mention of Avast, and delete it.
Run a search for avast and delete anything you find.
Download a registry cleaner, I use CC Cleaner.
Run the cleaner and remove all the files it finds, run the registry cleaner and let it delete all the problems it finds .
IF you want to try with avast again, uninstall the other antivirus program you may have installed. then try with the Avast again
