Question about Anthology Solutions Yellow Machine P400T (250006001) 400 GB Network Hard Drive

Shows drive is full but there is almost nothing on it

I have to YM's that are switched out bimonthly for daily backups. One of the machines is now reporting 0 space used and 0 space available. Essentially, there is nothing on it except some backup config files and directories that take a very tiny bit of space. Any thoughts/help are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Teri

Ths is possibly caused by a FAT / TOC error and it may be possible to resolve this using a chkdisk or perhaps scandisk or whatever management tools come with this item.

C drive is almost empty but d drive full

You might already have the setting where your backups will be saved in D drive and hence it is full now. You can now reset the settings and change it by C drive. By the way, C drive is by default the drive in which your OS and its related files are stored and nothing else.

I want to transfer all sate data from my old laptop to my new PC, I have already installed the hardware on the new PC

Sage has an EXPORT function that you can use to transfer data.

You could also copy the daily files from the storage folder to a USB drive

O the new machine use the IMPORT function to import a backup of the files or use the folder options to get data from the USB drive to set up a new company profile which would use your old data to set up a new copy of SAGE with your exisying information.

The prefered option is IMPORT / EXPORT

Depends on how you want to do the back up.

If you mean instantly writing to the backup external drive, sort of like a RAID configuration, I can't help you.

If you mean a regularly scheduled back, there are options available that should work great for you.

You can use Microsoft's built-in backup to perform backups, or you can use a 3rd party solution.

I've never really liked Microsoft's backup programs, so I use a free program called Cobian Backup,

It is very simple to use. You can set up any schedule you want: daily, weekly, monthly, etc. You can do full backups of everything on your laptop, or only files that have changed or are new since your last back up.

It provides you with the option to use shadow copy, which means it canback up files currently in use (typically those are system files).

It can compress the files to save space and can also encrypt the back ups for security if desired.

I use it on 8 workstations to back up all new and changed files nightly, and to do a full system backup every 30 days and it works flawlessly for me.

I have a Sony DAT drive running under Windows Small Business Server 2003. It's taking 12 hours to back up 24gig of data. Is this normal? If not what can I do to speed the process up?


Unless the data is changing completly, I would change my backup process to increment for daily use. A full backup should be done once a month or more depending on your business integrety. Also, if you are running the backup while you are using the system, this will slow down the backup as well.

Good Luck
