How to manually backup files on a corrupt Windows Vista using a Vista Setup DVD

The above, becomes very necessary for a lot of people who find themselves only having in their possession, their Vista Setup DVD in the case of a corrupt Windows Vista that will not boot at all even in safe mode. In these cases, one may want to perform a reformat and a fresh Windows Installation (especially in the case of virus attack) but would not want to lose his/her personal files. Now here's what to do:

First you will need another disk drive apart from the hard drive with the corrupt Vista Installation. It could be another hard drive partition on the same PC, an external hard drive, or a usb flash disk drive with enough space to copy the necessary files. In the case of an external drive, I recommend that you connect it to the PC before you turn it on.

Now turn on the PC, quickly insert the Vista Setup DVD, and boot from the CD/DVD drive. If your PC is not already set to boot from CD/DVD, you may have to go to BIOS setup to set the boot order to boot from the CD/DVD drive. The BIOS setup can be entered by quickly pressing the appropriate key which is normally shown on the screen when you turn on you PC. It's normally 'F2', 'Del', 'Esc' or another key depending on the system model. Most PC models also provide a key that can be quickly used to select the media to boot from when the PC starts.

After the Vista Setup DVD has Loaded, select the language and keyboard layout and proceed to the next stage. Click on 'Repair my computer' and wait for the resulting window. Now select your Windows and click 'load drivers'. You will be presented with an explorer window where you can browse 'My Computer'. Now in this mode, you will see and copy only folders not files but it does not mean that your files are not there. Since you can only copy folders, you may want to copy you 'Desktop' folder, and you 'Documents' folder and any other folder that you created that contains files that you don't want to lose. If you are wondering how to get to your Desktop and Documents folders, here's how: (Double click on the hard disk with the corrupt Windows Installation. Double click 'Users' and then double click on the desired user name. You will now see all the folders associated with the user name you selected including the Desktop and Documents folders). Right-click and copy the folders one after the other to you desired destination disk drive. Note that no copy progress is shown so you would have to look at your hard disk activity led to keep track of the progress (the hard disk led will be very busy blinking when copying and stop blinking when done). In the case of an external hard disk drive or a usb flash disk drive, you can use the activity led on them to keep track of the copying (they also stop blinking when copying is done). That's all. You have successfully backed up your files manually.

I recommend that, after your fresh installation, obtain a good Anti-virus software, update it and use it to scan your backed up folders before you access them. Hope this is helpful and I wish you all the best.

Complete user manual as said to be available in document with product SPHDU2 I need more detail than "drad and drop copies of your critical files onto the drive" I am computer iliterate

Open "My Documents".
Hold the CTRL key down, and click the mouse on the first file/folder that you want to copy.
While holding the CTRL key down, click the mouse on the next file/folder that you want to copy.
While holding the CTRL key down, keep clicking to "add" more files/folders to your "selected" objects.

Release the CTRL key.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on one of the selected files/folders.
Point at "Send To".
Click on the icon for your your IOMEGA device.
The selected files/folders will be copied.

When the 'copy' completes, do _NOT_ delete your original files.
Instead, keep those original files in your 'My Documents' folder,
and keep the copy on the IOMEGA. That way, if your C: disk-drive fails,
or if the IOMEGA fails, then you still have _ONE_ copy of your files.

I can't figure out how to transfer songs into my itunes .

1. Go to your iTunes Music folder on your computer.

Windows: (Documents & Settings > [your username] > )My Documents > My Music > iTunes > iTunes Music

Mac: [your home folder] > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music
2. Copy this entire folder to a CD, DVD or flash drive. You could try zipping it and emailing it if you only have a song or two, but anything beyond that, and it will be too large.
3. At your second (recipient) computer, insert the CD, DVD or flash drive.
4. Open iTunes
5. Choose File > Add to Library...
6. Select the iTunes Music folder in your recordable media in the dialog box
7. Give it a few minutes to import all the files
8. Done!

Cd drive and burner are not working

Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive.

To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps:
  1. Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
  4. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:\*.* HardDiskDrive:\cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder.

    Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files.
  5. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F.
  6. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement.

I'm trying to download a word dvd into documents. What do I do?


Providing the DVD is not copyright protected you should be able to copy the DVD into your Documents folder.

Pop the DVD into the drive but don't execute and programs on autoplay. What you need to do is explore/open the DVD so you can see the folders inside.

If there are more than one folder press Ctrl and a (that will highlight all the files/folders) then press Ctrl and c (that will copy all the files/folders)

Now go to you Documents folder and make a new folder and then open the folder. Now press Ctrl and v (that will paste all the copied files/folders into the newly created folder) it may take some time depending on the size of the DVD.

You should now be done.

If you need anymore help or advice please don't rate my answer but rather post back, that way i can reply to you and help you further if you need it.

Good luck.

I am trying to burn a disk with my Dell 4300 Computer. When I in

1) Insert a Blank CD-R into your CD Drive and push the button to close the door.
2) Wait a moment for the What do you want Windows to do? box. If
this box does not appear, you can open the Windows Explorer by
double-clicking the My Documents icon or the My Computer icon
on your Desktop.
3) When asked What do you want Windows to do?, click Open
writable CD folder using Windows Explorer.
4) Once the Windows Explorer opens, click on the link on the left that
says My Documents to get to your My Documents folder.
5) To copy everything in the My Documents folder to CD, click Edit
and then click Select All. All the folders and documents on the
right will be selected.
a) Note: If you only want to copy certain files/folders to CD, hold the Ctrl
key on your keyboard to select only the files / folders that you want to copy.
6) Once your files are selected, click Copy the selected items on the
task pane on the left side of the window. (If you do not see these
words on the left, click the Folders button once.)
7) When the Copy Items box appears, select the CD Drive (D:) and
click Copy.
8) Once the files are finished copying, you will see a balloon in the
bottom right corner of your screen saying that You have files
waiting to be written to the CD.
9) If you are only copying you’re My Documents folder to CD, you
can click that yellow balloon to complete the CD burning process.
Note: If you do not see that balloon, wait a few more moments. If you still
do not see it, click on the My Computer link on the task pane on the left,
then double-click the D: drive. Then proceed with the next step.
10) Clicking the balloon will bring you to the D: drive and you will see
the files you have copied under the Files Ready to Be Written to the CD section.
11) On the left, click Write these files to CD.
12) You will be asked to type a CD name. This simply gives the CD a name and is optional (16-
character limit).
13) Click Next.
14) When the CD Writing Wizard is complete, your CD will be ejected and you will see a box telling
you that you have successfully written the files to the CD. Click Finish.
15) To ensure that the files have been successfully written to the CD, insert the CD again and wait a
moment. The CD and its contents should appear on your screen after a few seconds.
You can continue to copy files to this CD until the CD is full. When the CD is full, you will be told so by
Windows. CD’s cannot be erased. Once a file is copied to a CD, it is permanently there.
The files that you have copied to CD are Read-Only. This means that you cannot make changes to a
file on the CD and save those changes directly back to the CD. If you want to change a file on the CD,
you must open the file, save it to your PC’s hard drive (My Documents or Desktop folders are
recommended), then follow the steps above to copy the file back to the CD, clicking Yes when asked if
you want to replace the file on the CD with the new one.
