First, I had to fix the serious problem caused by fix INI instructions from a Premium Assistance guru. (Who never responded to emails saying I had a problem he causesd.) Then I hired a tech ($75, minimum charge) to resolve what the guru had caused. The tech also resolved the INI problem, which Techsupportlive, which does Redemption support, had not been able to do in 6 weerks. I'm not savvy enough to know what he did.

Reset password


Sometimes, passwordprotection is just a software-issue. In such case you can consider to hook this harddisk to another computer, to see if this protection is still active.
If it is, than it might some software located at your external harddisk. If it does, it's good to verify if it is loaded by a .ini-file.
Windows, for example is default set to check for new hardware, and if it is a harddisk, to explore it in the background. If there's an ini-file in the root, it'll read this file, which might link to a program to activate (located at your harddisk). If you're able to remove this file, you've overcome this protection.
For this, you need to go to "start" and then enter the following command : "cmd" or "command" (without the " ").
NOTE : I don't know which type of Windows you use. Some Windows-versions expect cmd, some command.
If you succeeded, a window will pop-up, with black text. Then go to the specific drive. If your drive is known as D-drive, enter "D:"
Than enter "dir autorun.ini" .
If you see this file is present, then delete this file by :
"delete d:\autorun.ini".
If succeeded type "exit"
Finally, reboot your PC and see if your protection is gone.

Tip

Increase HDD Speed


Run SYSEDIT.EXE from the start & then Run command.

Expand the system.ini file window.

Scroll down almost to the end of the file till you find a line called [386enh].

Press Enter to make one blank line, and in that line type

Irq14=4096

Note: This line IS CASE SENSITIVE!!!

Click on the File menu, then choose Save.

Close SYSEDIT and reboot your computer.

Done. Speed improvement will be noticed after the computer reboots.

The most speed improvement is visible with IDE drives, however there arereports that this tweak also does good for SCSI disks. In any case, it won'tharm your system, so why not try it yourself and let me know what you find

I am trying to update my back up but I get a message the disc is full (although it does not appear to be when I look at its porperties). I am instructed to delete and backup the files again and when I try...


I thing your file system is FAT32.fat 32 can only store file size of maximum of 4GB.change file system to NTFS.

To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt
  1. Open Command Prompt. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  2. In the command prompt window, type: convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs
For example, typing convert X: /fs:ntfs would format drive X: with the ntfs format.

First of all put the iamge file ( eg. test.jpg) in the root of the Flash drive. Then create a text file there and rename it to desktop.ini to the root of the Flsh drive.. Make sure it's not a .txt file.

Then open the desktop.ini file in notepad and enter following content.

MY pc does not start anymore. I have a Seagate hard drive ST380011A. I got the message: The following fail is missingC:/windows rootsystem32hal.dll


<windows root>system32hal.dll. is missing or corrupt. â How to fix it?â The Hal.dll file is the first file that boot.ini tells the system to look for at boot. â Looking at it this way, this error message can be rather misleading. In fact the reason could be a number of things, such as: â The boot.ini file is actually corrupt or damaged, â or it is pointing the Startup to look in the wrong place. The Hal.dll file is located in the System32 directory of your %SystemRoot% which in a default XP setup is:â C:WindowsSystem32.â You can use the Dos boot disk (or NTFS Reader above) to quickly determine if the file is missing.â If it is, then you should extract it from your XP CDrom and place it in its proper location.Boot to your XP CDrom, and then choose 'r' to go to the Recovery Console.â With your XP Cdrom in the drive, issue this command:Expand D:i386hal.dl_ C:Windowssystem32â â (This assumes the CDrom is D and your System Partition is C) â If this does not cure your issue this may be due to issues in your boot.ini file.â â The boot.ini file is actually corrupt or damaged, or it is pointing the Startup to look in the wrong place. Resolution:â The easiest way to fix this is to boot to the Recovery Console and replace the old boot.ini with a new one.â Once you have booted to the Recovery Console run these commands at the prompt:Attrib -H -R -S C:boot.iniâ â â (This removes the attributes and allows deletion). DEL C:boot.iniâ â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â (Deletes the corrupted boot.ini file)â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â BootCfg /Rebuildâ â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â (Recreates the new boot.ini file)If you would like to view the boot.ini file, you will need a boot disk to get to the DOS prompt.â If you have formatted with FAT32, then you may use a Windows boot disk (such as a W98 disk), but if you are running NTFS, you will need a NTFS reader boot disk, such as NTFS Reader For DOS which is available for download here.â To diagnose the problem, copy the boot.ini file from the hard drive (C:boot.ini) and open it with Notepad.â You will want to verify that the "Default=" line as well as the ARC path line are pointing to the right location.â Here is two examples of boot.ini files (ARC paths start with multi): [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file after adding another partition running Windows 2000 Professional. [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect â â

File Missing or Corrupt system32\hal.dll


Ok, that means the file boot.ini is not pointing at the right partition to boot. Make sure that in the boot.ini, in parentheses is the correct number, which is always one below the actual number!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, partition number one has the number 0 for Windows.

If you can't boot from that disk, maybe you can put it in a computer, as a slave disk. I had the same problem because I installed Linux in another partition and Windows didn't like it.

Redemption backup - restore not working


I found the solution. You have to go to their website http://www.techsupportlive.com/ and intsall the update (Redemption_Upgrade_15A.exe) which was posted on April 10th, 2008.

I did that, and it fixed the issue. Oh, after you install the update, use Tools menu to repair and manage your stores as necessary.

Here is the full blurb from their website: Problem: “Invalid file” and “No items were selected” message’s displayed when I perform Restore (Full restore, File restore and Find files restore). How to avoid or over come this problem?

Solution: This kind of problem occurs when the drive letter of the HD partition changes it can be resolved either by changing the existing drive letter of HD part to the original letter or by upgrading to the latest version as available in the techsupportlive.com and perform the Repair Catalog operation.

Redemption Backup crashes


I have the same problem and have asked Acomdata several times how to fix it.  They say they'll get back within 3 days, but they never reply, Acomdata doesn't support their products.  Buy something else.
