Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Toshiba NTI Backup Now EZ will not back up due to "invalid destination" after reformatting the external hard drive in order to clear it.

I reformatted it because it was backing up multiple copies of files and was overloading my hard drive after restoring data.

SOURCE: Reformatted without downloading software to my desktop

robilynn -

Here is the driver page, you'll have to get the model number off of the drive to download the proper one:

Here is the page for the manuals (top of the page), just choose Pro or Duo pro for whichever is the drive you have:

http://www.simpletech.com/support/guides.php

That should give you everything you need to get it back up and running.

SOURCE: Reformat my external drive to NTFS

The only risk associated with file formats is that a drive formatted with FAT32 file system will not see NTFS formatted file system, whereas, a drive formatted with NTFS file system will definitely see FAT32.
To make it clearer, this means that, if on your system, your hard drive which is having the operating system installed on it, is formatted with FAT32 file system, and you bring an external drive, or even a backup drive which is formatted with NTFS file system, and you plug it to your system, the system will detect it but it wont be able to access the full drive capacity, you will just see it in the device manager page that it is connected.
But If it is Vice-Versa, the NTFS formatted drive will detect the FAT32 drive.
Now in your own case, if your system is formatted in NTFS file system and you plug in your external drive which is NTFS formatted also, from what you have said, I suspect that you have some hidden partitions on your harddrive (the 250GB), so when you plug it, try and do this, Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
If you see any other hidden drives there, do the same thing to it.
This should make your External Drive to be detected automatically.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

You have an issue - if my understanding is correct ' you are trying to restore your files, programs etc., to a new computer.

Backups are meant to restore the files and windows operating system etc. on the same computer the backup was created from. If you bought a new computer, it cannot do any restoration of the backup file from the hard drive.

if this is not the case, you need to provide more information for anyone to help.

Toshina External Hard Drive backup files in


Which program did you create the backup with? You'll need to install a copy of that software on your new computer. Then you will let the software find the backup and restore it. This will only work if you used a file backup. Many backup programs do not restore to systems with different hardware (different CPU, hard drive, OS, etc.).

However, I don't know which software uses *. PFT, pfi or pfp extensions. PBF is the format for one of the older Paragon Backup software versions. Acronis uses *.TIB . For a list of many of the software extensions used for backups, see https://www.file-extensions.org/filetype/extension/name/backup-files .

Canvio drives used to include NTI BackupNow EZ software. However, I believe that NTI backups use BJF or NTI extensions. The installer for that is here: http://support.toshiba.com/sscontent?contentId=3044104 . To check for other software for your external drive, try looking up your drive at http://support.toshiba.com/support/home . The available drivers and software should be listed. Alternatively, check if the backup software installer is still on the external drive.

I hope this helps.

My back up is full


Delete older images or, modify backups by using selective items instead of broad strokes like the whole drive. You could backup with less frequency.

There is the options of doing Differential backup and less Full backups.


Swap out tape or hard drive.

Hi I'll briefly describe my problem I've an external HDD (Toshiba) with NTI Backup Now EZ software installed on it, and I used it to back up my files the problem is that I can't restore my files now...


You might need to get an older version of NTI Backup Now. I had the same issue. I was using Backup Now 4 which saved everything as .nbf.files. I downloaded a trial version of Backup Now 5.5 and tried to restore the files only to find .nbf files are not compatible with version 5.5!
I sent a rather facetious e-mail to NTI moaning about this issue and they sent me a trial version of version 4. If I were you, I'd do the same. http://www.nticorp.com/en/us/product/backup_now5.asp
All my .nbf files are now restored.
