Can windows 10 be backed up on an external hard drive?


You could use a programme called Symantec Ghost, it basically makes an exact copy or clone of your current Hard Drive. You will obviously need to purchase a licence for the software but there are alternatives which are free.

One such programme is Macrium Reflect, you can download it from http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx

It's not a typical backup, as in it will backup individual files and folder you choose but the entire OS and anything you have stored or installed. As long as your external Hard Drive is big enough, you should have no issues making a Ghost Clone.

Ca i replace the hard drive in a acer aspire one 8'9 with one from a hp mini110? thankyou


Hi

most laptop hard drives are same size 2.5
but the hard drive from the hp may have a different face plate or holder but can easily be removed

also the os system on the hp will not load up and work on the acer
you will have to
either use windows easy transfer to copy your entire hard drive files and save onto spare hard drive
so that when you replace and format different hard drive you can then transfer it back onto new hard drive

or if pre windows 7 os you could use something like norton ghost to copy your existing operating system and files and make a system image and store on spare hard drive then when you replace the hard drive
you boot up with norton ghost and ask it to find the image and restore it to the new drive

Or if your lucky enough to have the operating installation disk or can get your hands on another retail installation disk you can reload a new operating system using the product code which should be on a sticker on the base of your laptop

Hope this was useful to you

Got message 10008 replace hard disk.


Your computer's motherboard has queried the disk-drive in your computer as to the "health" of the disk-drive, and the disk-drive is detecting that it is about to FAIL. So, ASAP, copy all your files to an external disk-drive, before the disk-drive DOES fail.

Buy a new disk-drive, attach it, and use something like NORTON GHOST or SYMANTEC PARTITION MAGIC to "clone" your old disk to the new disk-drive.

Then, disconnect and remove the old hard-drive.

How To Copy Installed Microsoft Office 2007 As A Set Up File??


Hi,
There is no way to install your software on the other system unless you have the installation files. You can however make a ghost copy of your hard drive and copy a mirror image from one hard drive to another. There are many software packages available for making ghost copies of your hard drive, ie. Norton ghost.
Let me know if you need any further info on this.
Best wishes,

I keep getting the message 2010


After a BIOS upgrade or installation of a new hard drive, the following error message may appear at POST: ERROR
2010: Warning: Your internal hard disk drive (HDD) may not function correctly on this system. Ensure that your HDD is supported on this system and that the latest HDD firmware is installed. Press <Esc> to continue

Press <F1> to Setup
The system appears to boot normally after escape is pressed and the operating system will load.
Solution There are three possible workarounds to eliminate the error:
  1. Update the hard drive firmware to the latest level. Download the hard drive firmware update, and then apply to your hard drive.
    Note: This update requires a floppy disk drive.
  2. Replace the hard drive with one supported by the system being used.
  3. Use the hard drive, producing the 2010, error in the Ultrabay of the system or a docking station with the second hard drive adapter instead. The interface to the Ultrabay is parallel ATA. For more information visit, ThinkPad Second Hard Drive Adapter for Ultrabay Slim - Overview
Additional information This error is purposely generated to alert the user to potential problems with diagnostic or copy tools. There are known issues with several of these listed below.
  1. Disk Fitness Test (DFT) version 3.xx provided by Hitachi GST which uses vendor specific commands on the hard drive. These may not be correctly interpreted since they must pass through the serial to parallel ATA bridge. However, version 4.00 or later of the Disk Fitness Test (DFT) will work.
  2. HDDTEST version 0.28 by Hitachi GST does not function properly for similar reasons. Instead, use HDDTEST version 0.29 or later.
  3. DOS-based copy tools may function slowly or produce incorrect output, specifically previous versions of Norton/Symantec Ghost. These versions are not compatible with the Serial-ATA interface of the Intel ICH6M chip set. Documentation on this problem may be found at www.symantec.com. It is recommended to use either a newer version of Ghost, Norton Ghost 2003 (version 2003.789 or later) or Symantec Ghost 8.0 or later, or to use the -FNI switch when invoking Ghost from the command prompt (For example, Ghost.exe -FNI with the current version of Ghost).
Other disk copy tools and related applications, such as some backup programs, may also have similar behavior. The hard drives shipped in the affected systems will not display the message because they already have firmware that recognizes this new Serial ATA bridge chip. However, a similar drive from an earlier ThinkPad system or an OEM drive might cause the error message to be displayed. Customers may also notice the POST error message after applying a ThinkPad BIOS update if a drive without the firmware update is installed in the system. Some early systems were shipped with a system BIOS version that did not provide this POST error message. Updated BIOS has been released to provide this informative POST error message to users.

Ghost drives in xp home


I need more data , you need to tell me what partitions exists on the drive , are there more than one partition now ?

your ghosting software could have created another partition by accident. and now you got a shadow copy figureatively speaking.

keep things simple , lets just start by seeing how many partitions exist on the drive.

also I would need to know what version of windows we're dealing with.

I just need as much information about your system as you can give me, no detail is unimportant.

DfragFat.exe Application error


I suggest backing up before you do *anything* else. ghost a copy to an external or spare internal hard drive. It sounds to me like your hard drive could be on the brink of death.

Once you get a copy ghosted do a scandisk with the "automatically detect and attempt recovery of bad sectors" checked. I bet it finds some irregularities.

Transferring info from one hard drive to another


No that wont work.  :)

You will never be able to copy all the files from windows.

Here is my suggestion.

Their are several programs out their to help you accomplish a disk to disk copy. I personally use Norton Ghost. Action True image is another.

This particular program i have found extremely reliable.is Norton Ghost 2003. This is a hard drive cloning software that runs from dos.

When you are running windows, you cant copy by drag and drop, all the files. Windows just wont let you move the important files.

You could purchase norton ghost 2007. That software is designed to work from windows. You can install it and then clone the running drive onto the new fresh drive.

After you clone the drive, you can just set it to "active" and switch the boot order in the bios. Or just unplug the old drive.

I can assist you in getting a copy of norton ghost dos edition, and clone the drive. However it would require direct connection to your pc, and phone support to walk you threw it once your into dos.
