Recover data from my backup


Which operating system and what data do you need to recover ???
You can create a backup disk with Microsoft Windows 7 or any other version of the operating system.
This disk will contain the files, programs and settings that you chose to save during the backup operation.
Yet, this disk does little good for you if you do not know how to retrieve that backup data.
Luckily, Microsoft offers a simple process for restoring this data to your operating system.
Even a basic computer user should have no problem restoring her backed up data from a backup disk.

Insert your Windows 7 installation DVD into your optical drive.
Reboot your computer and press a key to boot from the disk once prompted.
Click "Repair your computer."
Choose the hard drive that contains your copy of Windows 7.

Click "Windows complete PC restore."
The latest backup data will be selected by default. I
n the event you wish to restore earlier backup data, press "restore from a different backup."
Click "Next."
Your computer will now restore the backup data into Microsoft Windows 7.

How to fix No Bootable Media Error Message


FAT (File Allocation Table) is one of the most widely used file systems used now-a-days with various versions of Windows operating systems and memory cards. Every logical partition contains a FAT that consists of file allocation information and the information of free allocation units that need to be assigned to files. Although the FAT file system is reliable, corruption still occurs due to various reasons. In such situations of FAT corruption, your system becomes unbootable, resulting into inaccessibility of data saved in FAT based hard drive. To access the data after FAT file system damage, an easy way is to restore the data from an updated backup. But, with inaccessibility of data backup or backup falling short to restore the required data, an ideal option left is to use an advanced FAT Data Recoveryapplication that can recover the lost data.

To illustrate the above scenario, consider a practical case the below error message pops up when you attempt to boot your system:

“No Bootable Media”

As the above error message appears at the time of booting the system, you wont be able to access the data saved in the hard drive.

Cause:

The above error message because the FAT file system has been corrupted. Few main causes for file system damage are improper system shutdown, human errors, and virus attack.

Resolution:

To isolate the above error message and to access the data after the above error message appears, you will need to follow the below steps:

Run CHKDSK utility to repair the FAT file system. If the problem persists, format the hard drive.

While the latter resolution resolves the above error message completely, it also deletes the data saved on your hard drive. In such cases, if the backup is not available, then you can only recover your formatted data by using an advanced third-party FAT Data Recovery software.

A FAT Partition Recovery utility thoroughly scans a FAT based hard drive and recovers almost all data, even after formatting. The data recovery utility can be downloaded from the Internet.

Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery is an efficient FAT Partition Recovery tool that recover lost, deleted, and formatted data from both FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT) and NTFS (NTFS, and NTFS5 ) based hard drives. The detailed help manual attached with the tool allows even a new user to perform recovery easily without any technical knowledge. It supports Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000.

It will not boot up stops when it say detecting storage device


Remove the hard drive and put it into an enclosure. Plug it into another computer as a slave. Then you can copy your files on it.
If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it, you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery program. Asoftech data recovery is a professional data recovery program that can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage, system sabotage, virus attack etc.

IIT IS SHOWING SMART FAILURE PREDICTED ON HARD DISK 2 THEN AFTER TRYING TO START IT SAID CRITICAL REPLACE HARD DISC DRIVE


HI There, you have hardware monitoring enabled (which ever vendor software you are using).
This error states there has been too many read/write errors. The disk is coping by writing to another area of disk, however it is confirming you WILL need to replace the drive in a controlled manner before the disks dies. Then this is uncontrolled and risk data loss.
if disk mirror or using raid 5, just swap out the faulty disk.
If it is the ONLY disk or no raid disk sets involved.
MUST backup your data.
Swap the faulty disk.
Rebuild and/or restore your data from your most recent backups. good luck...

My Aspire G600P desktop has a Fat 32 file on the C drive. I have bought a Verbatim External hard drive which has Nero Back it up which has an autoback up which formats the internal hard drive with NTFS....


You cannot switch file systems and keep the data, you can however backup your data and reformat your hd, then proceed to copy from the backup media to the reinstalled OS. there are many tools to do both task, I would recommend download a linux live cd and backup to your external drive from there, then just reinstall windows and format your drive with an NTFS partition. I hope this helps.

I have Window Vista on a HP conputer. I have 3 companies on Quick Books. Turned off the computer on Friday working fine. Turn back on Sat evening and the computer message was all programs lost reboot...


if you reformatted the drive the data was on (as well as where the backup was (don't backup data from one hard drive to the SAME hard drive)), then all hope isn't lost.  go to download.com and look for file restoring programs.  a number of them are free and can recover data on hard drives as long as their sectors haven't been rewritten.

Wat is the best method to keep back-up of data in hardisk


It depends on how old your computer is and how big your HD is for small amounts use DVDs and the other way i do it is have a secound hard drive in the computer so if something happens to the system it usually does not effect the second hard drive Another way is to have a large USB portable hard drive I sometimes use this as I take information to another location

My maxtor external hard drive has done a scheguled Plan b backup but files that I removed from my master hard drive to free up space because I had them saved on my external hard drive are now missing from...


When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:

System backup


Essentially the same.
A good backup is a copy of any data you wouldnt want to lose in the event of hard drive failure, theft, fire, etc. A copy of your important data on another medium such as external hard drive, flash drive, cd, dvd, network drive.

I dont consider a floppy a reliable medium, dont use those.
A copy of your data to another partition on the same physical hard drive is NOT really a true backup.

The best is to back up (copy) your important data to a reliable and known good medium and store it in a different location than your original data. Different location meaning, not in your house, but in someone else's house.

Back up today what you dont want to lose if your hard drive goes up in smoke tomorrow. Simple as that.
