  1. I have a new Western Digital external hard disk, which be with me like 2 months. Well, here's the problem, when i tried to open the content, my computer cannot read the external hard disk. Then i waited for several minutes, it does appear on my my computer section, but it does not shows what it suppose to show (like the hard disk capacity meter and the name of the hard disk). All it tell is 'CD Drive (G:)', and when i double click on it, it tells 'application not found'. I have check it on device manager, it shown over there, but like what i said, i cant open it no matter what. I run auto play, also does nothing. Also i google most of the solution tell me to use Disk Management, which they give solution to change the drive letter, i done it, but still effect nothing. It still the same. I've tried on others computer, failed. I change the usb chord, including the usb booster, failed. The disk inside the device are still running/spinning, and most of WD hard disk have the tiny LED light that indicates its working if it blink so much, but for my problem, the LED light just flashing still motionless. Any solution for this other than formating it, because i cant format it as well! Please help, there's a lot of important task and assignment in there that i need to get it back. Please reply ASAP...thanks
  2. So I am currently using windows server 2008 r (32 bit) and i am wanting to upgrade to Server 2012. There are 2 problems with this 1. you cannot upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit and 2. I am having to use the same computer for the server. I came up with an Idea and i was wanting to know if anyone thinks this would work. So I have both win server 2008 and 2008 r2 and I was wondering if I did a clean install of win server 2008 to 2008 r2 if i could load all of my informatinon onto the r2 through one of my routine backups that i have. Then I should be able to run the regular upgrade to 2012. Let me know your thoughts please! P.s. I have been an IT person for 3 months now so my knowledge is very slim.
  3. I recently needed to Backup all my files and also do a System Image Backup, on the advice of a member, to solve a problem. Once the problem was resolved I Restored all my files, but I have found several Application files missing and, also, my entire e-mail contents have gone missing. How do I get this stuff back ?
  4. This has now become the most annoying issue. For the third time I have tried to use your backup tool to backup my hard drive. I have two 1Terrabyte hard drives. The C drive I just filled with about 700MB. The second 1 Terrabyte drive is empty. So, I tell the tool to backup the drive, including a image disc. I know this is going to take more than 700MB of space. The backup utility just starts going, as if everything is going to work. It does not do any calculations first. In order for me to find out if the backup will work, I have to run it over night. Therefore, When I wake up the next day, I always find a message saying, "Your hard drive does not have enough space." Why doesn't your backup tool make the calculation first, and then decide to make the backup or not? Why do I have to wait all night? Has nobody else been frustrated with this? Is this fixed in Windows 8? Backing up a hard drive is important, and Windows fails every time. I always have to search for another backup utility to manage my backups, because your tool is just really bad. I don't want to pay for an OS that can't even figure out how to backup my drive correctly.
  5. I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium from XP. I have 6.1 SP1 build 7601 running on Pentium Dual Core E5200 @ 2.5GHz with 3.0 gb of memory. Windows Backup has never worked very well - I made a few backups early on, but wanted something more, so I tried several Back-up programs with mixed results, but nothing seems to work - I get hangups, schedules don't run without baby-sitting, error messages, etc. So, anyway, I'm thinking maybe I'd go back to Windows backup and just live with its shortcomings, but now it doesn't work at all. I go to Control Panel, click on Backup under Security; it says Windows backup has not been setup, and when I click on "set up backup", I get a set=up window that just hangs and never gets any progress. So, I have a two fold question: How can I fix Windows 7 backup? AND/OR Is there a decent program out there that will run consistent backups and images, etc, without a working Windows back-up? Thanks
  6. Hi everyone: I was curious what am I doing wrong here. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. I set up a built-in backup utility to do backups of my system on an external hard drive. (Control Panel -> Backup and Restore. I set it up to backup my system every Sunday @ 7 pm.) The external hard drive is 1TB in size (that is bigger than my actual HDD) and I thought everything was working right.... Until yesterday I noticed this flag icon with a red X next to the clock that told me that "I need to solve 1 important message." I clicked on it and it showed this, "The disc that your backup is saved on doesn't have enough free space." Well, yes, it won't have enough free space if old backups aren't removed :) So I was trying to find an option of how to set it up to automatically remove old backups but I couldn't seem to find it. Can someone suggest a location for that setting? (The built-in Windows backup utility cannot be that dumb as to expect me to remove old backups manually, can it?)
