Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive

2 Answers

Cannot RESTORE data!

I had been using Redemption backup for several months. My WinXPpro PC crashed and I reformatted the PC and proceded to attempt to restore my important data but Redemption does not find any stores.

When I explore the Acomdata drive I can see all the *.rim files are there - the total volume of *.rim is right for the 4GB of data. My data is there on the Acomdata backup drive but HOW can I decompress the *.rim files?

    Yes it was a catalogue problem I had unplugged the backup drive and plugged in some other stuff and the drives became renamed. Once I changed the catalogue pointewr back to J: which it was earlier, all is well!

    Thank you. How do I give props to Otacon?

    Did you try rebuilding the catalog?



    Rebuild the Catalog File

    Redemption requires a Catalog File to restore data from a Backup Store. Because a Backup Store’s

    Catalog File is stored on your computer you will first need to rebuild the Catalog File.

    3.1 Install the Redemption application. (Refer to your hard drive User’s Guide for installation

    instructions.)

    3.2 Launch Redemption.

    3.3 In the main Redemption window, select Repair Catalog from the Tools group.

    3.4 Under “Select an option for Catalog repair” select “Disk” and click OK.

    3.5 Under “Which disk(s) do you want Redemption to check…” select the “All Disks.” To view the list

    of disks/volumes.

    3.6 Select the volume that contains the Backup Store(s) and click OK.

    3.7 A new window will appear displaying the Backup Store(s) on the disk. Select a Backup Store and

    click OK. After you make your selection the Catalog File will be rebuilt.

    Firstly, I am glad it worked out for you. To give me credit for the solution, you need to pick my solution as a Fixya instead of the other solution. You can also email email Fixya to ask them to change it.

Would like my games restored on my new iPad Air 2. My old iPad 2 crashed. My games are all installed on new device; but at the beginning. I would like them restored to where I was.


If you have previously backed up your iPad, you can
  • connect your iPad to your computer,
  • open iTunes
  • select your iPad
  • in the Summary screen, press the "Restore Backup" button
After several minutes, your backup will be complete and your previous data restored.

If you did not back up your iPad previously (either to iCloud or to your computer), you won't be able to restore your old data. Also, be careful not to backup your new iPad until you have restored the old backup (in the Backups section of the Summary of your iPad in iTunes, it notes when your last backup occurred).

My computer crashed. I have a backup of all my Palm files but am having trouble recovering them. Does anyone have instructions on how to restore backup files on a Palm Tungsten E2?


Hello.

Palm backups are located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\Palm\username>\ED\Backup\

When you HotSync a PDA that has undergone a hard reset, HotSync will compare the two devices. When it sees that the PDA is empty, it will attempt to reload any backup that exists on the PC. Once this data is reloaded, the PDA will ask to do a soft reset. This is simply a restart of the device and doesn't affect any of the newly installed data. This returns the PDA to working order, with all the data and programs functioning as they were before.

Hope this resolves your problem.

Corrupt MYOB data file


Our MYOB 14 .dat file is crashing. We suspect a corrupt entry in the database. The file will open but as soon as we trying to do anything the program closes and produces the following error: MYOB must terminate. Termination Code 1284 Important Details: Error -3000 in DMGTEKey (5037:7000:69) Seems to be the same error every time. We have tried running MYOB's Verify and Optimise tools with no luck. Each time either tool is run the program crashes and displays the error: An error occurred while attempting to compact the database. DM Error = (-3000-5049-7000-158) Restoring from a backup is not an option as last backup was 3 months ago. So looking for solutions to fix the current file please. Will not be satisfied if the solution is to take it to MYOB. Need someone who can actually dig around inside the file and correct the errors??

Dell Inspiron 1525 Blue screen & windows error messages/reformat


Do a recovery first and if you are still getting a blue screen on this 1525 call dell and ask for a replacment do not go any further in trying to repair it yourself as anything you do would just make matters worse if its out of warrenty then the only thing you can do is try:

1. clean the unit if there is any dust
2. try new memory modules
3. run a memory diagnostic on it using windos diagnostics
4. recover the operating system.

I hope you have some good luck with this advice.
