I would bet money that the destination drive (sony 1 TB) is formatted as FAT32 versus NTFS. I believe there is a 4 GB limitation on size to destination device given the cluster-size limitations of Fat32. One thing you "could do" is split files into smaller chunks, then copy to destination drive.

IF 1 TB drive is empty, try and reformat 1 TB disk to NTFS, recopy file in native format and you "should" be OK.

Backup Best Practices


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.

I need a back up from windows XP Home Edition


How To Buckup Winxp Unknown to many users, Windows XP offers a simple and easy to use program made specifically to backup your system files. The program can be found by clicking the "Start" button, and navigating through the following menu items; Programs, Accessories, and System Tools.
The program is entitled backup, however do not let the lame title fool you, as the software is both simple to use and very powerful. It is very simple to use, because you only have to specify where you would like the backup file to be stored; there are no challenging questions asked. It is very powerful because it enables you to create a single file that is a complete backup of your entire system.
Once you open the program, you will be greeted with a window containing the backup & restore wizard. After reading the window, you may click on the next button, and you will be greeted with two options; Backup files & settings and Restore files & settings.
After you select "backup files & settings" and click the OK button, you will be greeted with a list of items that you can backup. Because the purpose of this article is to explain to you how to backup your system files, select the option "All information on this computer" and click the next button.
How to successfully make a backup copy of your entire system.You will then be asked for a location to store the *.bak file. Since Windows XP is extremely large, storing the *.bak file on floppy disks is not feasible, as it would take several hundreds, if not thousands of floppy disks to hold the file.
Instead store the file locally on your hard drive. Once the file has been created, you will be prompted to insert a floppy disk. The software will then write a program to the disk that allow you to boot the system using the disk, and restore your system via the *.bak file.
Please remember that the backup file can be extremely large, and requires you to either place it onto a CD, DVD, or in a well protected folder or partition on your computer system.
How to easily restore your backup files.If you ever have the need to utilize the backup file, simply place the floppy disk in your drive, and turn on the computer. The system will boot from the floppy, and ask for the location of the *.bak file. Once you provide the system with the location of the backup file, your system will begin to replace your corrupt system files with your backup files.

H:\$MFT KEEPS POPING IN MY PC


MFT stands for Master File Table. NTFS (New Technology File System) uses it in order to record references of all files and folders of the corresponding volume. It is the most significant metadata structure of NTFS volume. It is the point from where NTFS installed system starts from to access any file. Any corruption caused to MFT will lead to Data Recovery routine. When MFT gets corrupted, user may fail to access files and carry out usual operations like renaming, deleting or opening the file with an error similar to:
“H:\ $MFT is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility.”
The error is specific to Windows XP and 2000. Users can also encounter the same error message as a Windows pop-up balloon at the lower-right corner of computer screen.
  • To resolve the issue, we need to first take full data backup and check for its consistent status. If media fails to restore data or the backup operation faces some difficulty, Data Recovery Software will be required to recover.
  • We can start Recovery Console by starting our system using the Windows operating system disk.
  • We can press R to select the repair option on the Welcome to setup screen.
  • We need to specify Administrator password, if there is no administrator password just press Enter.
  • We can then use chkdsk /H:Drive Letter: through command prompt and try repairing the damaged MFT.
Chkdsk /H: acts upon the file system and attempts to repair the damage. But it can cause more damage if it fails. In such cases, we need to format the drive and restore data from backup. If backup has not been efficiently taken or can’t offer full restoration, Data Recovery applications can help.

We know that while installing active directory a domain user works on the server and gets the interface of his os can any one tell me how can i take backup of the the whole domain from server only


I believe you are asking for instruction on how to backup your Active Directory domain from the server, correct? The best way to do this is to use a third-party utility like Symantec's BackUp Exec and perform a System State backup.

Although Windows comes with a basic backup utility, your best bet is to go with a third party tool.

I hope this helps!

How to take a back up for active directory?


there is no backup for Active Directory only. you can backup the PDC or the BDC as a whole. or to backup the system state data.

Active Directory is same as registry. backup the AD will help you any when the machine goes down. you don't have the link to all of the services.

That specific error pertains to "validating" your copy of Windows. you might want to validate that copy, then re-try system state.

Window 2003 AD NTBackup Problem


Reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode (F8 at startup) and use NTDSUTIL
to check the integrity of your database. Usually, an offline defrag will
fix this kind of error. If it doesn't, and the integrity checks fail,
you'll need to try and repair. Note that there could be issues with the
repair so be prepared to restore from backup.

Google NTDSUTIL for the syntax. There's loads of info. on TechNet2.

You must also select this option during the restore operation to have a working sysvol after the recovery.The following information applies only to domain controllers. You can restore member servers the same way, but in normal mode.

If any of the following conditions are not met, the system state is not restored. Backup attempts to restore the system state, but does not succeed. • The drive letter on which the %SystemRoot% folder is located must be the same as when it was backed up. • The %SystemRoot% folder must be the same folder as when it was backed up. • If sysvol or other Active Directory databases were located on another volume, they must exist and have the same drive letters also.
