Question about Computers & Internet

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

Repeated use

in the settings for back ups you can select files and folders to back up
the back up timing can be set from immediate to hourly , daily weekly even momthly
some back up systems copy and others copy and replace so ask around what your back up is going to be
My back up does everything every week and backs up onto a 1tb external hard drive
you should get an alert that reads something like-- unable to do back up because of insufficient space
or the same message if you try to download something onto a usb stick that is not big enough for the down load

I have a iomega desktop hard drive, but once connected what do I

If you're asking for how to backup your files the easiest way is just to copy everything in your Documents (or My Documents) folder (depending on windows version). Then copy any thing else you may have saved outside the documents folder. There a number of free and commercial solutions for backing up if you want something more automated or "set-and-forget".

I want to transfer all sate data from my old laptop to my new PC, I have already installed the hardware on the new PC

Sage has an EXPORT function that you can use to transfer data.

You could also copy the daily files from the storage folder to a USB drive

O the new machine use the IMPORT function to import a backup of the files or use the folder options to get data from the USB drive to set up a new company profile which would use your old data to set up a new copy of SAGE with your exisying information.

The prefered option is IMPORT / EXPORT

I want to backup my computers (4) and have maxtor partitioned and used at purchase time, but now when I connect it I get no prompts or choice of hard drive to back up. How do I go about back up?

You have a varity of option to do your backup depending on the type of backup you want to do.
1 Documents and folders
To backup your document and folders you can just copy the Documents and folders to the external drive.
You could also use the backuo feature of the Operating system you have like windows backup to backup your documents and folders.
2 System backup of your system.
You can not use a copy accross to do the complete backup of your system. You can use the windows backup to do this or a third party backup software.
Windows Back for Windows 7.
Click on Start ----- Controll Panel ----- System and Security ------- Set up Backup ------ Select where you want to save your backup ( the external Drive you connected to your system) in the box ------ Next ----- Choose the files or drive you want to backup and click next ------- Review your backup settings and save settings and run back.

This will save your files to the external drive you added to your system.

Automaticly deletes documents before

Check the settings of the printer. In the mean time, copy all the printable files to a new folder for safety reasons. Copy them and NOT move them. meaning you have a backup till you sort the problem out.

Back up

You could do one of the following:
  1. When you check C:\, make sure that ALL the folders are checked. There may also be an option in the options menu that says something similar to "backup system files", etc. Make sure that is CHECKED.
  2. You can go online and search for either free or commercial backup programs that will backup EVERYTHING.
  3. If you are doing a daily, weekly, or frequent backup (as in your not trying to move your data or reformat your hard drive), you should swith to Shadow Copies, which makes a shadow-copy of your Hard Drive. It takes up WAY less space, and takes a virtual copy of your computer.
That is all the help I can give. A link to how to back up and free backup software can be found here:
