You don't install backup files; they're just files.

What you want to do is back up files to a portable hard drive. Then you want to find the backup files on your D drive and delete them.

The biggest commonly available flash drive is 8gb. That's enough to back up your word processing documents and such, but not enough to back up your entire computer. It's may not even be enough room to back up just your music files.

This laptop is very slow


Slowness in the laptop can be due to many reasons. You may upgrade your processor( to i5 or i7), but that will be too costly. Try increasing the RAM of your laptop. Also don't overflow your hard drive. Decrease in free space on your hard drive will ultimately slow down your laptop.

Hi, I get an Error Ox80070571, how do I fix this? Disk appears to be damaged, how to repair it, Win Vista DSKCHK repair does not work after file 227.600 (or thereabouts). Claims not enough space, but...


Hi, The error you getting means that windows can't access information thats stored on your hard disk. The fact that it seem that CHKDSK is failing to complete a scan means that you are looking at a broken hard drive. Try running: chkdsk /r in your command prompt. This will tell CHKDSK to find bad sectors and recover any and all readable information on the disk. After you have recovered all the information, back it up to another hard drive and perform a full format of the disk. The disk should be usable after that as the bad sectors will be marked and nothing will be written to those sectors. If you do find any further problems thou it will be time to replace the drive.

My Acer netbook will not boot all the way. The screen showing that Windows XP is starting shows up, but then it stops at the screen that asks me whether I want to go into safe mode. I tried pressing F8 and...


Hi, STOP Error 0x00000073: CONFIG_LIST_FAILED STOP error 0x73 means that one of the top-level registry keys, also known as core system hives, cannot be linked in the registry tree. STOP code 0x00000073 may also display "CONFIG_LIST_FAILED" on the same STOP message.
This can be either SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE or DEFAULT. One common reason for this to happen is if you are out of disk space on the system drive (in which case param 2 is 0xC000017D - STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE)
This is a serious situation. What has happened to the PC? Was there a power failure? Sudden restart? I cannot say exactly that this is the problem. We have to analyze further.
Here are some steps and information to help you.
First of all make sure you have ENOUGH DISK SPACE in your SYSTEM PARTITION (Volume). STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE means that logs and hive enumeration is not possible due to lack of the space. System drives has page files on it as well so First thing you have to do is to save some SPACE. If you have Windows DVD (or CDs - use CD1) just insert it and boot from CD/DVD. Go to Recovery Mode (Key is R). In the recovery mode Type DIR. If you receive an Error you have to type chkdsk PartitionName: /f /r As an example if your system drive is C that would be chkdsk C: /f /r ( Spaces between C and /, /f and /r ) Then the disk will be checked for bad sectors. Partition table will be fixed to normal.
If you do not receive an error and if you could see the files: Delete some files using DELETE command. (Use with caution - Try delete ? or delete /? for a list of OPTIONS). Create some space (If you use Vista make sure you have at least 1GB Empty Space. A calculation. You have to have at least 1GB + Space for the Page File. Page file uses 1.5 x your RAM Size GB space.). Then Boot the machine and check. That should work.
This post has two parts since its too long.

Not enough disk space to copy


Scan the drive due to possibly virus managing your disk drive. Virus can easily access through USB hard drives. If not solve the problem, so its better to format.
