Tip

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

Data saved disappears when computer is rebooted


HARDLY SCAN YOUR PC FOR ANY VIRUSES. I RECOMEND AVIRA ANTIVIRUS OR AVAST. THEY WILL IDENTIFY IF THERE IS ANY VIRUS THAT STEALS OR EAT YOUR DATA.

PERHAPS, RUN DISC/HARD DRIVE FRAGMENTATION AND DISK CHECK UP TO SEE IT IS WORKING PROPERLY BECAUSE IT DOES SEEM TO HAVE SAVED YOUR DOCUMENTS ONLY TO FIND IT HAS SOME ERRORS ON IT.

SIMPLY RIGHT CLICK YOUR LOCAL DISC ON MY COMPUTER AND FRAGMENT AND RUN DISC CHECK UTILITY.

THANKS,

Bought a 2gig maxell flash pen and wanted to use it for storing my work on it but i cant seem to work it and i need to save my work on this flash pen can some one please help


If you are using Win98 the problem is the USB ports themselves. You must locate and install USB drivers to make them functional. Other than that the USB should reconise the flash pen after a few minutes.
Now if it see it, to store in the drive, Save the information to a file/folder and then right click and choose SEND TO and pick the letter drive that is your flash pen and that will do it. If you can do drag and drop open the window that has your info and open a window that shows your pen drive left click and hold it down a drag it to the pen drive - when you see the + just release the left click and it should be on the pen drive.
Hope this helps you, good luck, please leave a rating, thank you kindly

I have a usb flash drive with data on it and now the flash drive can't be read. The light on it flashes but it will not open.


Sounds like the Flash drive has corrupted data. I can't find any free software that can help you repair corrupted USB drives, but VirtualLab DataRecovery is rated pretty highly, I would download the trial and see if it works for you.

As a note, Flash memory does "wear out" over time, and it will eventually be unable to write/read any data. So it's important to never keep all your critical documents on a Flash drive. It's only meant for temporary transportation of data.

USB Flash Drive Problem


Instead of trying to access them when they do come up, try shifting them or making a backup.
