Tip

Recovering your data before reinstall with ubuntu.


If you have lost your password, or if you are unable to start up windows and it seems like you would have to do a fresh install of windows.

In the process you may lose all your files, if the drive is formatted, to avoid that happening download ubuntu and burn it to a cd.

things needed:
  • A working computer w/ cd burning capability
  • 1 empty CD-R disk
  • External hard drive (USB) for backing up your files.
download ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com/ and burn it to a cd, then start up from the disc and back up your files into the external usb drive. The downloading and burning of the disc, the ubuntu site explains and has everything you need for this task.

Start your machine with the cd, and connect the usb hard drive. if the machine does not start from the cd, confirm that the disc works on another computer and make sure its clean, then check the boot order by following my tip on troubleshooting boot cd issues.

with the cd in the drive and it starts up, take the option to Try ubuntu without any change to your computer.

In ubuntu, it is quite like a windows system, its as simple to use as windows is.

In ubuntu, with the external usb drive connected, on the desktop

On the top right you have places, from there you can get into your computers hard drive and then on the usb drive, just copy your files from there to the external just like you would do with a windows computer.



Things that you want to back up

documents and settings your user name --- this place contains your personal data in most cases

any other place that you know contains something important.

that is the most important place and that is where most of the files are stored, of course you will know better what and where they are.



Things that you don't want to back up

program files, contains the installed programs of your computer, most of the time it is not a good idea to back up these files as programs need to be reinstalled when a new install of windows is made, since we are not backing up registry entries for the programs they may not work properly.

windows, contains the windows installation very rarely would you have anything important there, ignore it

temp, contains temporary files, unless you stored something important there ignore it.

If you kept something important in the recycle bin you can possibly find a hidden folder of recycler or similar in the drive where you may find some of your files, do not store your content in the recycle bin, it is not a good idea to store anything there.




When you have backed up your files you can do a fresh install of windows, for help in that please see my tips and tricks section for more guidance.

Computer is running very slow


Clear any and all unnecessary programs, files, documents, photo's and software from the computer.

You can place these items on several flash drives, or save yourself the hassle and buy an external hard drive.

As a general rule of thumb. Any programs or software you don't use everyday, should be on the external drive. Any photo's or old documents should also be on the external drive.

Formatting an external hard drive


Open up Folder Options\View\Show Hidden Files and Folders. Return to your Toshiba HDD. Do you see an hidden files? If so, try to delete them. You may have to change the Properties of these Folders\Files in order to delete them. BE WARNED, removing or deleting any folders or files that Toshiba placed in there could have negative affects on the way your external HDD runs.

Data Storage


Make sure you are storing them in both places. I have a hunch that even though you are storing them in the my documents folder it is the one on the external drive that is storing them & when you are trying to delete the computer is reading them as stored to the external & is deleting from there. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
