SOURCE: "error starting the service Backup Exec & media service"

This is most likely caused by a change in the user acount password that you created the profile with. Under network select Logon account Managment. in here you will see the accounts that you used to login to the Domain. (AD) Consider setting up separate accounts (backup, etc) for these services & scheduled jobs, rather than using the admin or personal accounts. This way you can still change the admin account password on a regular basis & maintain security, but not have to go the hassle of updating all of these at each change. You may also opt to set these specific accounts so that the passwords do not expire automatically so that you do not have to deal with that scenario.

SOURCE: Media test failure, No bootable device, insert boot disk.

That happened to me when I tried to upgrade. If you don't have an external DVD drive, you have to copy the restore disk to a flash drive, put it in the USB drive, power up, hit F12 at the first screen, move the highlight to the USB and boot from it.  Oh, and it has to be at least    1 GIG, the USB Flash drive does, or it won't fit.

Simple test to determine if it's a hardware or software problem : try to boot in the BIOS. If you can't then it's hardware you should just return it, it's still in the warranty. If you can then Windows is totally corrupted so just reinstall it.

Tip

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.


I hope this article was informative. Be sure to check out my other tech articles by clicking on my profile name and then going to "Tips" at the top left of my profile.

I have a 250 gb simpletech external hard drive. no. 96200-41001-077. I have used it as the time machine backup on my MacBook. It stopped backing up time machine recently. I got the message. Backup failed...


> icon does not show up on the desktop or finder

A major "clue" that one component of the external storage device has failed, namely:

* USB cable (try a different one)

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure

* optionally, the external power-supply that connects to the enclosure

Use a multi-meter to verify the voltage/amperage output of that power-supply.
(Not all external storage devices need such a power-supply.)

> can it be saved?

Partially. Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage-device. (Compare it to a heart-transplant -- same body, new heart.)

Software for the western digital elite hdd when using vista 64bit


What kind of software are you looking for? This should be automatically recognized by Vista as an external storage device. If it is not recognized and you cannot see/use the device; you need a driver to allow vista to talk with your USB device. Are you looking for backup software? Please clarify.

Backup Problem


80GB is the non compressed and 160GB is fully compressed. Based on my experience youll never get a compression rate of more than 1.5 to 1, so you should expect to get more than 120GB on the tape.

The issue that you are having is that you are using the drivers that either are built into windows or came with the tape drive and not the driver from symantec.

Go into Tools->Wizards->Device Configuration Wizard and follow the step to "Install tape device drivers". This should take care of the compression issue.

Sheduler for Sony 80GB Giga Vault


No, backup scheduler (if this is what you need) does not come normally with external hard disk drives.
Refer to the main post and check Norton internet security, among the other things it has the norton backup.
Windows has also its built in backup.
If you do not like any of this two solutions, I can find more software to download
