Question about Computers & Internet

Catastropic failure 0X8000FFFF unable to back-up files.

All I know is that when presented with the oportunity to "Back up files", I pressed, "continue, continue, continue".
I do not recall what the options were.
In the box of discs and instruction manuals I have:
A manual that says I have a Antec solution series SLK 1650.
A manual for MSI P4M890M
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Discs: Windows Vista Home Basic
MSI Drivers and Utilities
Samsung DVD writer
MS Windows Vista - Step by step
Samsung Sync Master TFT-LCD Monitor
A 1GB DDR2 Memory Module is fitted.
Plus a pile of paper work that I cannot read because I was not tauught Chinese when I was growing up.
Most of my friends were refugees from the the Holocaust of Europe.
I'm sorry to waste your time, I just don't know.
I have have come to the end of my tether trying to get help from the young people around me. I think they speak Chinese.
I will understand if you give up on this one
Regards, Barry

    How should I go about backing up my files to a disc?

    What type of disk/MD capacity should I use? The range seems so vaste.

    Is once a week enough?

Well, I see, but do you need to backup your files? are you planing to backup some spesific files or?

I personnally just burn my data into dvd disks or to a usb hard drive instead of using a program.

    Your not wasteing my time at all, im just a little confused about what you are trying to do.

  • Ekse Aug 19, 2008

    do you need assistance? if so, add a comment - how can I help you?

  • Ekse Aug 19, 2008

    you can use a dvd burner to burn your files into disks or simply copy your important files into a external harddrive there are products out there that can do this with one press of a button.


    Nero also has backup features, its a common burning program that comes with some dvd burners

    if you don't have a dvd burner or nero you could buy this one
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...

    it includes the nero 7. I have the same program it has the backitup feature included.

    there are also these external hard drives which can make backing up very easy

  • Ekse Aug 19, 2008

    I think the best solution would be the external hard drive.

    or you can use 4gb to 8gb Dvd disks, if you get blueray which cost too much right now, you can backup around 50gb into a single disk.

CAN U HELP ME FIX CATASTROPHIC FAILURE ERROR 0X8000FFFF VISTA


Try backing up your files to another drive or an external. Make your first target in the "Public" folder. You may need to create a New Folder prior to reattempting the backup. This problem often arises in Vista when a backup of C:\ is targeted to Drive C:\.

BCCCode 18 BCP2: fffffa80056befc0 Catastrophic Failure: 0x8000ffff


uninstall all SQL components from the list of Programs installed

______________________________________________________

Catastrophic failure (0x8000ffff)
Cause
Any of the following could contribute to this issue:

An application is interfering with System Restore.
One or more of the core System Restore files are missing and/or corrupted.
The Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) has been disabled. System Restore depends on VSS volume snapshots being created via Shared Protection Points (SPP). System Restore cannot function if snapshot creation via SPP breaks or is disabled or if VSS is disabled.
Resolution
To resolve such issues, use these steps:

Try to use System Restore from WinRE, Safe Mode, or Windows Vista in a clean boot state. If that fails, proceed with the next steps.
Check for the following files in the %windir%\system32 directory:
Srrstr.dll
Srclient.dll
Srcore.dll
Rstrui.exe
Follow the "Restoring Core Files" section later in this document. You might want to follow the instructions in that section to reregister Srcore.dll. Keep in mind that you are not able reregister Srrstr.dll, Srclient.dll, and Rstrui.exe as doing so produces an error message.
Check that Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) is not disabled.
Check for either of the following registry keys:
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore
If you find a DisableConfig DWORD set to 1 in either of these keys, export the key and delete it.
Try System Restore again.
