Total media backup may be damaged or incomplete

Error message when I try to open total media backup application from my desktop. Message "total media backup may be damaged or incomplete". Last back-up was 2010. This is my first use since 2010 with the same computer (macintosh/apple). The computer's original hard-drive has been replaced since last back-up. Previously backed up files are visible on drive so drive is working. Don't want to format drive as I'll lose existing back-up. Any advice on why I might be getting this message? Could it be because of the new internal hard-drive? and does this mean the recovery feature will not work for the 2009 files?

SOURCE: Simpletech 1TB USB not recognised properly

I had a very similar problem. It turned out to be a faulty case.

If the drive was formatted, there is a very good chance you've destroyed your data and may need professional services to recover the files (if possible)

Chances are you just needed to replace the external case by removing the harddrive from the simpletech case and installing it in a new case.

But again, if the drive's been formatted, it may have wiped out your data.

SOURCE: I have a 250 gb

> icon does not show up on the desktop or finder

A major "clue" that one component of the external storage device has failed, namely:

* USB cable (try a different one)

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure

* optionally, the external power-supply that connects to the enclosure

Use a multi-meter to verify the voltage/amperage output of that power-supply.
(Not all external storage devices need such a power-supply.)

> can it be saved?

Partially. Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage-device. (Compare it to a heart-transplant -- same body, new heart.)

Dear,
I saw your video and check the blue screen error. It comes for a friction of second and disappears but i kept my media player in slow motion mode and checked it. This error belongs to a missing registry file.
PERFORM THIS PROCEDURE for recovery.

A Stop 0xc0000218 error message means that a necessary registry hive file could not be loaded. This error message can occur if the file is corrupt or missing. To resolve this issue, you can reinstall the operating system and restore the registry files from a backup. The registry files may have been corrupted because of hard disk corruption or some other hardware problem.

This error message can also occur if the driver has corrupted the registry data while loading into memory, or the memory where the registry is loading has a parity error. In the latter case, turn off the external cache and check the memory chips.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer by running the Recovery Console, run the chkdsk /p command on the drive, and then restart your computer. Test to determine whether the issue is resolved. If the issue is resolved, do not complete the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, go to step 2.
  2. When Windows loads, press SPACE BAR when the "Load Last Known Good" message appears.
  3. Complete a parallel installation, and restore the registry files from a tape backup. To do so:
    • Reinstall Windows in a separate folder.
    • Restore the damaged registry hive from backup. This procedure is specific to the backup application that you used to make a backup. Consult the documentation of your backup application or consult the vendor if you need assistance. Typically, this procedure requires you to restore a system state backup to an alternate location, and then copy the appropriate registry files to the %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\config folder of the damaged operating system.
    • If you do not have a tape backup, include the backup of network servers and production workstations.
    NOTE: If Windows is stored on a FAT partition, you can restore the files by using another computer and by copying the registry hive files to the %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\Config subfolder.
best of luck!

NTVDM CPU fix


Hello there:
Something is amiss with your system.

That error message is associated with problems involving 16 bit
applications (Windows 3.x or MS-DOS) and both cmd.exe and regedit.exe
are full 32 bit Windows apps.

This sounds like it may be caused by an incomplete removal of one of
the trojans that blocks the use of Regedit.

You did not mention the specific products that you have tried. If you
have not previously used any of these you should try them:
Kaspersky Online Scanner http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
Panda ActiveScan http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan
Webroot http://www.webroot.com/
I highly recommend avg antivirus free version this is totally free and worked wonders for me
I hope that this is very helpful for you
best regards michael
