Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have auto backup set for 2:00p.m. daily. It is supposed to copy all info. in My Documents. It copies many of the file but for some reason, it doesn't seem to copy some of the accounting files (third level files). Even though backup occurs every day at 2:p.m., the latest upday on some of the files is 3/20/08. I also notice that on the daily backup log, those sub-files are not listed. Did I change a setting somewhere after 3/20 that drop them? I have the 250g MAXTOR (One Touch 4 mini P/N 9nu2a4-501

I have never been a fan of automated back up systems, and well, as far as I know these systems never back up software in that process, just the Operating system and the personal files.
I always keep important files on a external drive, or USB

Transfer files from one computer to another


The easiest way is to have something like an external hard drive or usb flash drive then copy the files from the old computer and then take the usb flash drive or external drive and and plug it into the new computer and copy the files to it.

You will be using the concept of copy and paste or drag and drop to get the files.

You can only copy things such as your documents, music, pictures and videos. You cannot copy programs from one computer to the other, programs have to be reinstalled so that they can update the registry and other settings in windows to work.

The majority of your documents, music, pictures and videos will be in your MY DOCUMENTS folder.

I will reformat my pc and i want to create backup first how do i do it


There are several waye to take backup of your whole machine.

1. windows backup utility
2. Manual Backup
3. third party software, like Symentec backup, acronis true image (will backup whole image of your pc)

if you dont have third party software then i recommend u take either manually or windows backup utility, but i do my self and prefer manual backup.

Manual Backup:

1. copy your user profile, which will include your desktop, documents, music, favorates,outlook (pst files), contacts, pictures, download, and shorcuts or link.
2. copy your data from other partition if you have like D: drive or so .

3. put the data in external hardisk, dvd, cd or any backup device .

Hi I'am currently trying to set up my new Verbatim usb 3.0 super speed desktop hard drive and iam finding it difficult to instal nero back up and i dont have a clue as to save my pictures and music onto it...


For backups of music/pictures, you can either user windows backup tool.
Or if you want to choose more specific files then, create a new folder within you new external HD and name it 'Back Up' within this folder create some more folders say Documents, Music and Pictures.
From here navigate to the files/Folders you want to backup and right click and copy them, next head back over to you backup folder we created and paste the files to the relevant folder whether its music pictures or documents.
If you need more just ask.

I want to copy a software from a dell laptop latitude d630 to a portoge m700 laptop . how do i do it?


If you mean how do you copy an application that's installed on one computer to another so it can be used there, the short answer is "you can't". An application needs to be properly installed using the original installation program supplied. Most applications put files into many different folders and you'd have to copy all of them. Also they make entries into the Windows Registry so the application is correctly accessible. Unless you get this information too, the application probably won't run at all.

If you just want to copy the data from an application - Word documents or data from a tax program, for example - you just have to copy that from the folders where it's stored. Many applications use the My Documents folder. Others create their own folders and provide a backup or copy utility in the application. Check the help information for your program for details.

How do I transfer pictures, music etc from the old computer to the new one


Several ways. Best is to get an external hard drive - they are cheap and they offer backup.

Another way is to hook up both computers on a network. can be done without a router or an ethernet hub - switch via a "cross" cable (as opposed to "patch" cable. Please be advised that the second option is by far cheaper but it could be a pain to set up properly.

I don't know how to access my Western Digital Backup. I have no icon to click.


hi

If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.
