When you do something like this the software has to check whether it has to change the previously written data or not... also it cannot afford to lose prewritten data so the work becomes more complex... that is the problem...

i use the same and experience the same....

Removed one of my external hard drives that was being backed up by memeo instant backup. Now get an error message that says Source Not Available. How do I fix? Can't put old drive back as it is gone.


Go into Settings and change the location of the backup to the place where you want to back up. There is no point in backing up to C:\ drive, because you still lose everything if the HD fails. These days you can use a 5 GB USB stick or Cloud Storage.

You can clear the message by doing CTRL, ALT, DELETE and bring up Task Manager. Close Memeo by 'End Task'..

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

111 GB SMARTDISK Firelite with 107 GB of Free Space... File System: FAT32 which only allows 4GB OF Backup... HELP!!!


In a FAT32 filesystem, the maximum size of a single file is 4.2GB.
It sounds like your backup program is backing up the disk to a single file.
To fix the problem you can either
1) Get a new backup program, or change the settings of your backup program not to create files larger than 4.2GB. Unless I know what backup program you use, I cannot help on this issue.
or
2) Convert the volume to NTFS, following instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307881. Then your backup file can be as bug as the disk itself.

How to back up your computer, how to back up pc


Backing up your computer is recommended if the data you keep on your computer is to important to lose. I will go over some tips and tricks on backing up your PC data.

Recommended Storage Devices
I recommend you use USB mass storage devices for backing up and retaining data. A good example of a mass storage device commonly used for data backups is external USB hard drives. I personally like Western Digital USB hard drives but there are many out there to choose from. You can take a look at some examples by visiting www.newegg.com. You can get 1TB drives very cheap and the prices continue to drop.

You can use other types of storage like USB flash drives, DVDs and even other computers. USB flash drives and external hard drives are cheap, easy to use and small, making them excellent storage devices.

It is recommended that you store data off of the computer who's data you are backing up. Why? If the computer is damaged, this can potentially ruin your backup and you lose the data. You want to move the data off the computer to reduce the number of failure points. For data that is even more critical to you, you can create additional backup copies so if one backup storage device fails, you have a copy of this. This process is called mirroring.


Backup Software
There are different ways to actually back up the data. You can do this manually or use software. I recommend using software to simplify the process. There are also numerous backup software utilities out there, some free and some costly. A popular free backup tool for average computer users is EASEUS Todo Backup and click here for the user guide. This tool is very easy to use.

An example of backing up data manually would be to click and drag the data like videos or images to a storage device. If you have a lot of data, this can be time consuming.

Backup Process
The backup process is simple and straightforward when using a USB storage device and back up software.

-Download and install your backup software tool.
-Plug in your storage device.
-Make sure your computer recognizes your storage device. Most devices are plug and play so once you plug it in, it should install device drivers and be ready to use.
-Run EASEUS Todo Backup software and click Backup to start the process or reference user guide for software you are using.
-Once your backup is done, you can store the storage device in a safe place.

What is the best backup method for me?
There are different types of backup methods and each have different pro's and con's so I advise to read up on backup methods and choose the best one that fits your needs.
You can click here to read about Differential vs Incremental backups. Either one will ultimately accomplish a backup which is what our end goal is.

General Tips
-After your initial backup I recommend you schedule backups to continuously keep your data up to date.
-Use USB storage devices like external hard drives and flash drives. They are cheap and small in size, big in storage space(GBs).
-Use backup software to simplify the backup process.

Seagate 250G running out of space


creat incremental backup rather than complete fresh backup.
empty trash can.
either way, it's possible the backup drive uses up more than working drive especially adding/deleting files alot between backup's.

Exterior hard drive not recognise by the computer


Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive.

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive shold be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Can you be a bit more elaborative on the second issue.

What is "wollum 0" i cant get it.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
