Restore recovery disk


Hi Billy,
depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup

(the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.)

Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above.

If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State".

Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost.

Hope that helps.

Need a new hard drive but have no windows vista disk


You don't.
Do you have backup software? If so, do a "disk and partition" backup. This essentially creates an image of your system, even if you have multiple hard disks. Decent backup software (I won't mention any brands except the one I use: Acronis) will allow for a boot time recovery of your entire system, either by inserting a post-bios command -- which will appear on your screen before windows startup with a message like "Press F12 for system recovery", or you should press whatever key your system allows for boot order and boot from the recovery disk you can create from the software.
You can even now immediately create a Windows backup to an appropriately sized USB mounted disk (even the terabyte ones are relatively cheap) and a Windows Recovery Disk...the recovery disk should be inserted and use boot order F-key...good luck

Master hard disc..Message stating that Windows has detected a problem.


Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk.


+ Start the backup process


* Ask me again later


If the disk fails before the next warning, you could lose all of the programs and documents on the disk.

Immediate steps
Because a disk failure will cause you to lose all programs, files and documents on the disk, you should back up your important information immediately. Try not to use your computer until you have repaired or replaced the hard disk.

Do pc run slow due to hard disk fail


If you have hard disk problems then this can cause many other problems on your computer, including impacting on performance due to the resources which are used in handling and trying to correct the disk problems.

I would strongly recommend that you make a full backup of your computer while it is still working and before the hard disk fails completely.

If you are using Windows 7 then you can do this using the Windows Backup process to make a System Image backup which can then be used to recover your system provided the image is written to either an external USB hard drive or to DVD discs.

If you have a different version of Windows, then you should try using one of the free Backup programs such as Easeus Todo Backup or Paragon Backup & Recovery Free - the links for these are below:

http://www.todo-backup.com/
http://www.paragon-software.com/free/

If you want to replace the failing hard disk yourself (after you have made a full backup as advised above) then see the Dell Inspiron 580 Service Manual for details on how to do this.

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.

Snapshot failure


Run the recommended chkdsk and backups still failed after completing the chkdsk w/o error. I than ran Spinrite on the disk which fixed a couple of disk problems. Then ran manual backup which completed without problem. Since the manual backup, the computer has backed up during the normal nightly backup without problem
