Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am in the process of making backup files of my eBay text and photograph files, and I have a problem doing so with some of the files. The files have been stored on a flash drive. They were not put there at the same time. I am now trying to relocate them to a different flash drive. My first step was to copy all the files to an intermediate folder, and this procedure was successful. But when I try to drag and drop a file, or a group of files, it fails and I get a dialog box saying: “ Do you have any suggestions as to what I am doing incorrectly? What really baffles me the most is that only some of the files will not copy. I have tried several things, such as using a different flash drive, verifying the flash drive has adequate space, and that the properties of the files and folders are correct. The USB port seems to work properly also. The files themselves could possibly be corrupt, but I doubt it as they still can be opened and I was able to move them from the original flash drive to the intermediate folder without a problem.

    • Select the medium you want to save your backup files to by clicking the appropriate radio button. The backup files that will be copied are listed on the user interface.

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

How to convert PDF to word best


Do you have some PDF file or you have downloaded some PDF file that you want convert to Word file? Then this article may be useful to you.As we all know,most PDF documents are not editable and copy and paste text manually can be a tedious process.What is worse, after the process the text file may mess up.

What should you do ? There are many free and online PDF to Word Converters on the market. Most of them are free and has the ability to convert PDF to Word. Some of them even support convert PDF files in batch to reduce time uploading PDF files one by one. However there are some questions that not all the free PDF to Word Converter can give the proper answers. After search up in Google, here I find the best free way of converting PDF to Text, that is using Advanced PDF To Word 5.0.

Advanced PDF To Word 5.0 offers the easiest way to Convert PDF To word. You don't even bother to launch the program. Just right-click the PDF file then select Convert with Advanced PDF To Word. Then you can gain Word file within seconds with non-need elements like logos, fonts, layouts and graphics disappeared.

Remove PDF Password
What is more amazing, Advanced PDF To Word has the function of removing PDF password- the owner password. If you can not copy or edit an urgent PDF file, you don't need to do the exhaunsting typing job or hire some freelancers to do it. If the PDF has been set an owner password, besides right-click conversion, you may just follow 3 steps: (1)Add the PDF files(supporting batch and partial conversion), (2)Specify the output folder, (3)Click Convert. Then you will have the desirable content in plain Text.

Multi-language Conversion
Some users may have non-english PDF files like Chinese, Korean and need to extract Text to translate into english. Most of PDF to Word Converters don't support multi-language conversion. However,Advanced PDF to Word Converter can do this perfectly. Just convert PDF to Word and translate it using Google Translate. Then you can convert it back to PDF by using PDF creator or free office save as PDF function.

Partical Conversion
If you don't need all the content within the document, the software expands your control during the conversion process. There’s no need to bother with reformatting and deleting the converted content afterwards. Select the pages you need to create the Word file the way you want. You may select a single page or set a page range like from page 1 to page 17. There is a page number at the end of each page to indicate you, so you can find the content easier.


Advanced PDF To word 5.0 is really the best solution to Convert PDF To Word.It recognizes rotated pages and its contents and preserves text, formatting, tables and images in the converted Word document as in the original PDF document. Text fonts and style, image placement, text columns, and overall document layout is preserved 100%.What is more, can convert PDF file which was restricted by author to prevent others from copying, editing or even printing. There's no need to waste time opening and converting each individual document, when you can drag and drop all of the files you need into Advanced PDF To Word, and with one click process multiple files at once to maximize time savings.

How do I start making my Maxtor start backing yp


Do you want to create a backup file or do you want to keep your original files saved on your Maxtor? If you want to create a backup file for the files on your computer, type "ntbackup" in the "Run", the backup wizard will automatically start and click "next" > "backup fies and settings" > "Let me choose what to backup" and then select the files and folders you want to backup by click the snap-ins (+ signs) and check mark the files or folders and again "next". In the option "choose a place to save your backup" click "browse" (if you are prompted that the drive A:\ is empty click "cancel") locate your Maxtor directory, click "Ok" and name the backup file something you like, click "next", the backup process will begin with the status monitor. It may take several minutes depending on the files you've selected. That's all. If you wanna restore the backup files, just double click the backup file you've saved and when the wizard opens, select "restore files and settings" and follow the onscreen instructions.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

When i connected my Maxtor basics 160 for the first time 2 weeks ago i recall a prompt asking me to backup all files (or something similar)which i did. I recall another prompt saying this was successful....


You probably backed them up to the same hard drive that they were on. If you plug in your maxtor hard drive to another machine and it shows it as being empty... this would be my best guess.

Most drives come with backup software that automates the process(as best it can) so that you can one click backup your documents and files(not your operating system).

I prefer to copy and paste my files and do my own backups, but backup software is an easy solution for the do-it-yourself.

OUTLOOK EXPRESS BACKUP FILE


BAK and BK files usually are backups of other documents or files.

The BAK (or BK) file extension normally represents files that are backup copies of other file. There is no 'standard' file format for BAK files. BAK files can represent virtually anything.

This link will take you to an on-line storage of software I have. Download and run easyrecovery pro. Select E-Mail repair. Select Outlook express.
