Question about Gateway (8003932) Docking Station for Solo 5300 / 9300

1 Answer

I have a WD1600B011 Ext HD. I am planning to use it to transfer data from an old ME system (the literature with the WD unit says that it is compatable with ME) to a new Vista OS computer. The lit. doesn't mention Vista as I bought the unit several years ago, so I'm wondering if I need to download a driver before I go to my sisters house to help her with the transfer. If so where can I get said driver? Tx in advance

Hfawley,

As long as you have a USB port on the ME PC, then it will not be a problem.

Here are some of the best practices to take into consideration in any backup &...


Here are some of the best practices to take into consideration in any backup & recovery system:
  • Usually perform system state backups of your servers frequently. Each computer on a Windows network has a corresponding computer account in Active Directory. Like a user account, the computer account has an associated password. The difference is that the password is assigned, and periodically changed, by Windows. If you try to restore a system state backup that is too old, the computer account password that is stored in the backup will no longer match the password that is bound to the computer account in Active Directory. As a result, the machine won't be able to participate in the domain. There are workarounds, but it is usually easier to just make frequent system state backups of your servers, & use these backups to recover the servers when needed.
  • Always backup the data, the server's operating system, & the applications installed on the server. Although it is true that, if a server fails and you need to perform a full recovery, you can reinstall the operating system & the applications & then restore any data. However, time is of the essence when trying to recover from a crash. It is much faster to restore everything from backup than it is to manually install an operating system and a set of applications. More important, it is often difficult to manually configure a server so that it matches its previous configuration. Backing up the entire server ensures that its configuration will be exactly as it was before the crash.
  • Periodically test your backups to make sure you are able to use them for recovery when the disaster strikes. Always remember that we perform backups in order to be able to restore from then when we need to. So, we have to make sure our backups are usable.
  • For some applications (for example, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, Lotus Domino Server, ... etc), a file-level backup is insufficient. These applications usually utilize open databases that need a special backup agent to back them up consistently while they are being in-use. Usually make sure that you are using the correct backup agent needed by your application.
  • While you should keep backups off site, consider waiting until the end of the business day to remove the previous night's tapes from the building. This way, if your server fails early during the day, you will not have to wait for hours till you can get the tapes on-site again & start the recovery.
  • Construct your backup architecture in a way that avoids (at least as much as possible) having a single point of failure. If possible, have a backup for your backups, or configure 2 independent backup schedules to run everyday.
  • Do not rely solely on a disk-to-disk backup solution. Although disk-to-disk backup solutions offer many advantages over traditional tape backups, they should not be the only backup solution to rely upon. In such a scenario, the backup server is prone to the same risks as the servers it protects. A hurricane, lightning strike, fire, or flood could wipe out your backup server along with your other servers. For this reason, it is important to dump the contents of your disk based backups to tape on a frequent basis, and then store those tapes in an off-site secure storage.
  • When deciding to replace your current backup technology with a newer one, do not get rid of the old tapes, tape device(s) & backup software. At least, do not do this unless you are sure that your newer tape device(s) support the older tapes, or that you have moved the older backups to newer media supported by the newer tape device(s). This way, when it is required to retrieve data from the old backups, you will be able easily to retrieve the required data. This also could apply to the older backup software if the newer backup application does not support the older tapes or tape device(s).
  • There is no denying that it is important to secure your backups, but it is equally important to consider the consequences of your security measures. If you find yourself having to restore a backup after a major system failure, the last thing you need is an ill-conceived security mechanism standing in the way of the recovery. For example, if you are planning to use hardware-level encryption, do not forget (when time comes to upgrade your backup hardware) to make sure that your new hardware supports the previously used encryption.
  • Always use a long tape rotation scheme, or at least keeping some of your backup tapes as long-term archives.

Use External Monitor for Lenovo Old laptop


Choosing your monitor is more of a personal taste and budget then anything when using one as an external monitor to a laptop. Only issues you might run into if finding the correct resolution to match up to the monitor. This could require a driver update to allow higher resolutions for the monitor to take advantage of its larger size. Max resolution for your laptop is 1280x800 if equiped with the intel 4500 graphic chipset. Also from a quick lookup of your laptop it shows you have a HDMI output along with the standard VGA. Using the HDMI output with a monitor with HDMI input will give you the best picture quality plus HDMI cables are plentiful and a wide range of lengths are available..

Can I use an 18 volt universal AC Power Adaptor on Fujitsu Lifebook P7120 which is a 16 volt laptop?


With voltage step down power supplies, output power is more important than data plate output V (volts). V times output A (data-plate amps) equals output Watts (or VA) under normal load. If the voltages are close and the output watts (VA) are very close (one or two watts) you are in luck as long as the connector is same size; AND THE POLARITY (+ & -) IS THE SAME for the old and replacement unit!

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from the computer's LAN PC card and connect it a DSL or cable modem. Contact a Internet Service Provider and select a plan that suits your requirements. The Internet Service Provider may also supply this broadband modem with the plan.

Transfer files from old laptop to new.


USB transfer cables are quite special and not a regular USB cable.

A better (and cheaper) option is if both have network ports (Ethernet)

Then use a crossover cable. This is usually much much faster than USB and also more reliable.

Enable file and printer sharing on both computers.
Also make sure they both share the same work-group common examples are MSHOME or WORKGROUP

Once that is done you have a few options.

The better option is to use file and settings transfer wizard or similar built into windows. This will step you through the process and allow you to carry over your email and address book plus all your documents.

Another is to use copy and paste to pick the items you want and move them directly to where you want them (his does not work as well as the FST option but is quick just for documents etc.

Dont try to copy programs as they don't transfer well for the most part.

If usb is your only option then be very aware that USB 1.0 to any USBwill be extremly slow and even subject to failure. USB 2.0 to USB 2.0 is the only reccomended usb transfer method
