IBM T30 unable to perform backup

When trying to create backup disks from a used IBM T30 2266 I am unable to. Then I tried using the backup utility to my backup external drive. Which has more then enough room. 500gig's. while starting the utility it comes up with the error destination file path not valid, or I/O problem. I have no clue what this I/O is. Also I do not have a set of backup disks. And I have spent hours trying to locate them on the web and also on IBM'S site. It just keeps bringing you around in circles.

How to parition the harddrive for windows


If You Have Problems Creating a Partition If you have problems creating a Windows partition, check the following: * The disk must be a single partition, formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). If the disk already has more than one partition, you must repartition it. * The disk must be an internal disk. You cannot use Boot Camp Assistant to install Windows on an external disk. * If a dialog appears saying "The disk cannot be partitioned because verification failed," try repairing the disk using Disk Utility and opening Boot Camp Assistant again. If that doesn't work, back up all the information on your computer, start up from your Mac OS X installation disc, and erase the disk using Disk Utility. Restore the information to your computer from the backup and try opening Boot Camp Assistant again.

Whenever i run my computer i get windows cannot find ssvichosst.exe at the startup


sounds like a virus or malware has infected your system. if you can at least boot in safe mode, do a virus/malware scan of your system. if available, schedule a boot scan. If unable to boot using your hard disk, try to boot using your Windows CD and try to go to the recovery console to perform your scans, otherwise, it may be faster to just completely wipe out your hard disk and reinstall Windows. if you have important data, try to create a backup, but be sure to do a full scan of the backup afterwards before restoring them back after an OS reinstall

Constantly getting write data to media errors


If you're using the MS Backup utility, it's creating .BKF files which are very large (1-2GB+). Your external hard drive uses a FAT32 file system, which has a limitation of 4GB per file. If your backup files are over 4GB, it won't copy. It probably worked on your 250GB hard drive because it was formated with NTFS and not FAT32. You'll need to limit the size of your backup files to 4GB or less, or use a different utility that has file-size splitting options.

NO answer to posted problem so ill try here.


Since this is apparently a hard drive issue, the very first thing to do is to back up all of your data files to a cd, or other media. Anything that you will need to put on a new hard drive.
The easiest way to do this is to create a new folder and name it something like "my backup files". Then go through all of you files and put a copy of anything you want to save in the new folder. After doing all of this housekeeping, just transfer this new folder to your backup media.
The next thing to do is to dig out those recovery disks that may have come with your system (Hopefully!). If not, do some exploring of your system resources to see if you can create a set of recovery disks. Some setups will let you do this.
The good news is that your current hard drive may still run for a long time, even with the clicking sound. The additional good news is that it dies on you, you will have saved all of the necessary files to rebuild a new hard drive, if, or when needed.

To set up a new drive, you will need to reinstall the window os and then your data files can be copied to the new drive.
