Windows xp backup utility


1st possible solution: Check your hard drive(s) and partitions for errors. You can do this by going to My Computer > right click on a drive > Properties > 'Tools' tab > Check Disk or Check Now
2nd possible solution: You may have backed up your files from an NTFS system and are trying to restore to a FAT32 system. If so, convert your computer to NTFS by right clicking on 'My Computer' > Manage > Storage > Disk Management> Right click on your primary drive > and select convert to NTFS.

Speed up my PC


1. Back up your PC. It's essential to perform regular backups of your PC, particularly if you'll be using utilities and tools that make software changes. Unfortunately, Windows XP Home Edition doesn't come with a backup utility. See Utilities To Back Up Your Data for downloads that will do the job. The built-in backup utility in Windows XP Pro is more robust than earlier versions, but it won't back up to a CD-R. It does work with CD-RWs, hard drives, and removable storage.
Log in to XP Pro with Administrator privileges, select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Backup. Step through the various dialog boxes and follow all directions. In the 'What to Back Up' dialog box, choose the All information on this computer option if you haven't done a backup before. This will create a floppy that you can use to boot your PC and to restore the backup after a crash.
2. Check hard drives for errors. It's wise to do a thorough check on the status of your hard drives occasionally. Go to Start, My Computer, right-click the icon for your C: drive, and choose Properties. Then choose the Tools tab and click the Check Now button. Repeat this step for your other hard drives.
Applications and files must be closed in order for error checking to fix the problems it finds, so XP will often report that the disk check will run the next time you restart your system if you've checked 'Automatically fix file system errors' on the next screen.
Note: Finding and recovering bad sectors can take hours if you have a large drive.
3. Defragment hard drives. The more you use your PC, the more some files become broken into disparate parts scattered around your hard drive. Defragmenting rearranges each file's pieces into a single continuous block for faster access.
You'll need to be logged in as the Administrator to run XP's Disk Defragmenter. First select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Defragmenter. Highlight the drive that you want to check, and press the Analyze button. XP will tell you whether the drive needs to be defragmented. If XP does recommend defragging, click the Defragment button.
4. Sack any spyware. A free program like Spybot Search & Destroy or Ad-aware can get rid of any freeloading spyware that makes its way onto your system.
5. Clean out unneeded files. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup, and select the drive you want to clean. XP will analyze your files and show a list of which ones can be removed. Check the boxes next to the categories you want to discard.
The More Options tab offers you several more cleanup choices. The System Restore cleanup option, in particular, can clear lots of disk space by erasing old restore points.
6. Back up again. Once you've finished tweaking your system and you're sure that everything is running well, it's a good idea to back up everything once again. That way, you'll always have a clean, fully optimized starting point that you can return to in case a disaster befalls your system.

My computer will not let me install WindowsVista. Error code 0x80040154. Can U help?


This is a common but harsh error to get tackled. This is one of those generic "no one knows" or "has a thousand fixes-and none work for you" errors. In outlook it comes up as "unknown error" which is very frustrating. But sometimes you might get lucky. Try following this link:

http://0x80040154.com/

Towards the left side of this page, you will find the Fix procedure. Not sure if it would work for you. Thankfully it did for me.

Hope this one solved your problem. If you have additional doubts, please come back to us.


P.S: If the solution is helpful, please accept the solution.

PAGING FILE ERROR ON HARD DISK DRIVE


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.

A 1tb external hard drive runs less than $150 now, mail order, delivered.
