I have a remote office that has four computers running XP Pro networked together and I need a back-up solution for the system acting as the server (mainly a file server). I was using back-up exec desktop version 4.62 and it has worked great but ever since I upgraded to XP Pro I have been having problems with it. And according to Veritas, they sold the software to a company called stomp which has an upgraded version called back-up. Have you guys delt with Stomp? What software would you recommend.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Can't see a reason to go out and buy one, there are plenty of freeware backup solutions that are dependable and excellent.

1 and 2.)Image Converter seems to be the culprit.3.)Do a System Restore to the point where you think all was okay.OR Manually edit PATH variable. The default PATH variable has the following string%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;Just in the end put your JDK bin pathTo edit PATH, Press Windows Key + Pause key.

I got a $7 per month plan on a server and I have a problems with FTP connection. I am trying to upload a 20MB file with multiple folders and files in it and the connection is very choppy and I literally was not able to do that since yesterday.
Does anybody knows how this work? Do they just impose some kind of limit on the connection and there is no way to get around that? This is a major obstacle and can get frustrating etc...

Does anyone know of a good method of moving all events from the Personal Folders Calendar to the Exchange Server Mailbox Calendar? I am using Outlook 2000. Please advise.
Open your pst calendar. View it so that you see a LIST of all events. Click on one of the events and hit ctrl-a. This should highlight (select) all events.
Click on the server-side calendar folder, and hit Paste.

OK so not. wifi working Client server Ethernet environment. my server was unplugged maliciously or not for at least two days it was unplugged When I finally discovered Ethernet working wifi not. Client server environment. it I restarted the computer and I had to restart the DNS because no one could get online through Ethernet I also reset the WAN and the LAN Now my wifi lynksys that has always worked shows up in the network but devices trying to connect cannot obtain an IP address and cannot get on the internet In addition I noticed that my comcast modem will recognize the service and my dlink switch in LAN and LAN ports but the LAN port where the wifi unit is connected will not light up and detect the wiifi I have reset the modem and the wifi unit several times and nothing is working Can anyone think of anything else or could this be a comcast issue Oh forgot to mention this all started right after a lightning strike on friday and the internet went down I tried configuring a new wifi unit but the same thing happens so I reconnected the old wifi unit as it stands this is where I am at nbsp
Has the wifi SSID name changed since you reset the router? Since the reset of the wifi router, what is the default IP address? Remove the wifi unit from switch and plug into a laptop or other Ethernet PC and attempt to connect to it after setting your Ethernet NIC to the static IP4 settings specified by the instruction manual for the linksys router. Make sure the linksys routers ip settings do not conflict with the Comcast gateway's own DHCP settings. What is handling DHCP in your network?

I'm looking at trying to get some experience on a Windows server operating system to help me apply for jobs. I want to learn how to create an Active Directory, DHCP and DNS environment in a virtual configuration so I don't have to obviously buy things.

Just a thought - have you tried Microsoft TechNet?
Good luck to you.

About three years ago, we carried out a similar evaluation of AV solutions for our domain environment (18 servers) and 300+ workstations. Finally, we settled upon Webroot. It has a small profile, runs well on any workstation or server, has a good suite for managing the environment, and does well with scanning.
When we were first deploying it, I created a GPO to push out the client and it was a breeze. As for proxy servers: if you chat with their staff, I'm sure they'll be able to walk you through any issues which may arise. All in all, it was a pleasantly surprising experience.

Under XP and Win2k3, IPv6 was implemented as a separate network stack - not part of the monolithic tcpip.sys transport. Therefore, if the same compiled binary does what you want it to do under Vista, odds are that you are indeed encountering a problem with the older XP/2k3 IPv6 implementation.
One thing I'd suggest is that you completely disable the NIC's checksum offload capabilities while you're conducting your tests. There's always a possibility that the NDIS5 NIC driver under XP/2k3 is interfering and skewing your results.
i used to use back up nero need back like up it software a i nero back it up it was just perfect when i am on it it displays a folder tree i just select which i want to back up i select the whole user folder and that's it the software it ask me where do i need a back up software like nero back it up i want to sae it if i choose a HDD it will create one or two files one the main file and the other the i need a back up software like nero back it up index or something like that or if i wanted to save it to save it to DVD's no problem the software tells me how many dvds i am going to need and thats its it just ask me for each DVD one by one until it finish burning them all if i want my data back i just go to the index file the last dvd and open ALL the data i have backup i need a back up software like nero back it up i select the files i want and the software only ask me which dvd to insert he will extract it for me the problem is that in windows nero back it up throw some errors while selecting files AND when installing nero it ask for directx many says that it does not overwrite the directx that came with win but IT DOES because despite the dxdiag still says directx is installed there is a decrease in video performance on games a so what back up software you recommend me i have reviewed several ones on google i decide to try comodo back up but i don't like it i want a back up folder that show me my files EXACTLY as they are contained in my user folder where it let me choose with a simple mark which one go or not to be backed up and to save in a simple uncompressed could be i don't care or few files and if it offer the option to split even better i already mention it but the folder tree feature at the moment of the backup and restore is very important because if there is a folder with less important data like internet videos i dont want that folder but since it's within an important folder how do i chose a backup without THAT folder adding it one by one
I would have just copied and pasted the files and folders on another disk that I wanted backed up or burned them on a CD/DVD.http://www.sevenforums.com/backup-restore/234361-i-need-back-up-software-like-nero-back-up.html

Hello.You have a nasty infection on board. One of them includes a backdoor.Backdoor ThreatIMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunatly One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards.

I need some help with finding a program that will back up exchange but keep it running at the same time!
I have found 1 or 2 that can do it but if you could find some free versions or for a price what would be great.
It will be a big task to do it because they have over 16 GB of exchange and rising fast!!!
Any help would be great thanks Jason
You really aren't going to find any that are FREE and do a good job of backing up individual mailboxes and databases while they are live. You need to ask yourself how much this email is worth to you and what would the effect be on you if they were suddenly gone and unrecoverable. If the answer is "they are worth nothing" then you can use the built in ntbackup utility to back it up. It the answer is "I would be devestated" you need to spend the money to get something like Veritas, BrightStor or other with Exchange connectors. 16GB is a lot of data to lose.

I'm using a W8 Pro box to serve audio and video, but is also used as a sort of HTPC box connected by SPDIF to an audio receiver. Using RDP (Remote Desktop) from another PC allows me to keep audio on the HTPC just fine, provided I tick the box in the options wherein I indicate to keep audio at the server.
However, if I log into the device using an RDP client running on a mobile client (iOS or Android), which does not have the option to keep audio on the server, I cannot restore the audio back to the server after a disconnected RDP session without a reboot of the server PC. It's fine that there's no option to keep audio on the server, but once I disconnect the RPD session from the mobile device, I expect that the audio is restored back to the server. But, for whatever reason, playback is just broken.
Although this has to do with audio, its more an OS/application issue. Consider reposting in one of the other forum sections. I don't know what would be a good section to post in.http://www.eightforums.com/sound-audio/43577-rdp-how-restore-audio-back-server.html

I've got a 2003 SBS Installation and I was cleaning up the start menu, and accidentally removed "Server Management" from the list.. it's nowhere to be found.
How do I get it back? any special mmc command I can type into command line?/run?

I have a file server and an exchange box that are both currently only being backed up using windows backup utility. I am looking to upgrade to an affordable software solution. What software would be recommended to schedule effective backups on both my server and exchange box both running windows server 2003? I'm not looking to spend an outrageous amount and I'm looking for something simple and effective.
Acronis true image is the best around. I use it on a client's server. It takes an image of the server you can in case of disaster restore the image onto different hardware based server, so you are up and running in a couple of hours at the most. You can restore individual files. Our server backs up in 3 hours. The only downside is that it doesn't work very well with tapes for some reason. We have the image backed up by an online backup company, so there is always an image offsite and one onsite on an external drive ready to be booted from. It's really easy to use. I used veritas before but if a disaster happens it takes days to restore the server and data. Imaging is the way to go in my opinion. Hope that helps. GlitzyGirl
I looked at go back ad from Computer magazine. Do you like the go back recovery software or is waste of buying it? I saw the awards from pc world E.T.C about go back software.
I was at a demonstartion for Go Back, when Gateway was looking at using it on the PCs they sell. The Sales person was very Technical, had us start Windows, delete all fun stuff in the Registry, exit to DOS, deltree win, and then, upon entering Bios setup, shut the system off. We restarted, and pressed the spacebar, selected the timeframe we wanted to "Go Back" to, and made all the bad stuff go away. Gateway is now offerring Go Back on some of their systems for a trial period in Europe, but it was implemented before the Millenium in the States. If that doesn't help you decide, I'm not sure what will.

I am looking for a program that does automatic back-ups. I want to be able to choose what files/folders, and i want to be able to choose when it backs up. I would also like for it to monitor the programs for updates and instantly update them.
The Windows backup will do automatic backups, and you can tell it what to backup.
I'm not so sure about the real-time monitoring, though. I haven't seen any good programs that will do that.
You could create a system restore point on a schedule. That will backup the registry, and settings and the like.
You can also create a full system image, or include it in the scheduled backup. It does take up a chunk of space, but it allows for a complete restore in minutes.
Hey everybody. I Used add-on/remove programs to uninstall a demo of Ulead VideoStudio the other day, and now I need that back. I have tried data recovery, but I do not know what i'm looking for. Is there another way to easily get this back in control panel, or is there something else i must do?
P.S: I cant download it again, so I need to recover it.
Hi, welcome to TSG.
Using data recovery tools you might be able to restore some of the files, but the registry entries are gone and the only way to get it working again is to reinstall the program. If the demo time has expired then there's not much you can do. Why do you need the program back?
First,I am really bad with computers. Now,I have read the section on Reflect and it is too hard for me. Told you I was bad.

I have been to Gizmo,CNET Major Geeks and others. I am just a bit overwhelmed. Can someone suggest a program for me. The simpler the better.

I am looking for some SOFTWARE that will allow me to back up selected folders, e.g My Documents so I can retrieve individual docs by looking at the My Docs folder. I tried doing a full back up then went to find individual papers with no success. I have asked this question on the Backups forum but no one seems to have an answer.
Is there any software that will enable me to backup an individual folder and update documents in it rather than me having to go into the folder, find the doc concerned and then copy and poaste the new veresion?

We are looking for some software to use in order to run nightly backups over six networked (windows workgroup) PC's. All use Win 98 except one running ME.
Looking for something that will back up files and folders (preferably to a non-proprietary format) incrementally that can be automated to run on a nightly basis. We're looking for software that will basically copy selected files and folders to a specified hard drive on the network.
Any suggestions for software or other backup solutions?
Thank in advance.
If you were savvy enough you could write a pretty simple batch file to do this and use the sceduler on the PC the files will be stored on to execute the batch file. As long as there are no files open on the network like databases it should run without a hitch. There of course would be no compression, but you could also automate a winzip session to run immediately following the batch file execution.

There must be a good , but free, backup software out there right?
how do u back up softwares, ccleaner, malwarebytes, on external hard drive?
The only real way to backup installed software is an image of the disk it resides on. You can do this with Windows backup or with a third party solution such as Macrium Reflect (link in signature). There are some good tutorials on the site. You may want to start with this one. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backuphttp://www.sevenforums.com/backup-restore/191157-back-up-software.html

Does someone know how I can upload my emails from Outlook back to the Yahoo server. I have an Yahoo Plus account.
just select the e mail select the "forward" option and mail it back to yourself , obviously make sure your e mail client isnt set to automatically download or you'll just end up with it back on your desktop
you can also set your e mail client to leave a copy of the mails on the server everytime it downloads any mails.

Hi sheenzy !
The program tells you it's missing some files to work, simply install the missing component : Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0 Service Pack 1
The file you need is msxml6_x86.msi
Make sure you have installed SP2 before you install that pack.

Win7 has an imaging program in Control Panel/Backup. This will restore the OS and any programs.
The recovery disks usually do the same, so I'd say use both.
Update them occasionally.
There is also a backup program in Control Panel you can use to keep your files backed outside of regular imaging or recovery disk creation.

Hi @annwa, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook and wanting some software back on the Notebook. Without the recovery disks for the Notebook it could be very challaging and with changing to Windows 10 might be impossible. Most of the software has been changed. I would be happy to try and find software that is needed. I would need the Model Number of the Notebook or you could try checking here. Please get back to me how this goes.

I know it is out of date to use Windows 7, (I would like to learn Linux, lol), but is there a good drive back up program still around for Windows 7 ?
I have WIN XP Pro and want to back up my documents, addresses, favorites, etc in an efficient and easy way. Can someone provide a recommendation for a back up software routine or should I try to use an XP utililty? I would prefer using freeware if possible.
I use TaskZip, it allows you to specify multiple folders and/or files, compresses them into ZIP files, and allows multiple generations of backups to co-exist. It allows you to schedule backups for every day, week, or month.
While there is a comment about possible problems with NT4+, I've run this application on 2K and XP on a number of systems, and I've never had any issues.
Did I mention it was free?
and just how reliable it is..
Hey guys,so i bought a second hand HP pavilion dv7 yesterday, i was trying to erase the current user on there, so i went to restore teh whole computer to get rid of all his files, accounts, etc. during this process, i accidently tapped the off button, and it erased everything from my computer, it came up with a BIOS screen, and i could not go anywhere else except there. i went to JBHIFI this morning, and with great difficulty have finally got the computer running on the windows 10 (64bit).i was wondering if there was any way i could get the HP software and apps that were on here before, back on again?thanks for taking the time, hope someone can help.reguards, Ahttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Commercial-PC-Software/How-do-i-get-the-hp-software-back-on-my-notebook/td-p/5632006

The Vista complete backup has worked perfectly for me:
You must upgrade to Ultimate or Vista Business to have this feature.
Acronis True image is highly regarded for this purpose also, and might be the best choice.
Nero Backitup also works well.
There might be a way to do #5, but this sounds like a job for a RAID 1 setup.
Is there any security software (antivirus, antispyware, firewall) you'd never go back to? Maybe a horrible experience? Internet reviews?
In my case, i'll stay as far as i can from AVG. Everytime i used it, it failed. When i install it on someone's PC he gets infected. Some time ago i gave it a try on a VM and it still fails as much as the Hindenburg.

I remember the old Windows XP times when I was younger and unexperienced I was downloading each software from Softonic and I had a lot of toolbars, sweetpage, babylon search and so on, with my silent AVG. I Always managed to remove those infection without any second opinion scanner (I didn't even know what malwarebytes was). Also me, I bypassed AVG on the first day of testing with ransomware
I am looking for advice on back up software, preferably free. What I would like is a program which can be run manually so that I do not have to keep an external disc permanently connected (in case ransomware scrambles the lot) but which after the first run will only back up files which have changed since the last run (to save time). Is there such a program and, if so, has anybody got experience of running it in the way I describe?

This type of problem usually requires that you change the lanman server parameters in order to get Windows 8 working with older servers. Do these adjustments on the Windows 8 machines that needs to connect to the server.
Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy
Local Policies - Security Options
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Set to Send LM & NTLM responses only
Set the Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption
Reboot all machines after making the adjustment.

Can I ask, What are the sharing permissions set as on the Windows server as these will need to be set as the same groups found on local machines since you said that you are connected using a workgroup rather than a domain. Also, are you able to ping the windows server at all?
Could you open a command prompt and type the following:
Is your server which has the inaccessible share listed?

Ok so maybe that is too complicated sorry I tend to be wordy . So does anyone know of a good backup software? Lets just see if anyone can help me with that part.

well my computer is like 6 years old, maby, and i have been experinceing some problems, and i want to back up my hard drive onto dvds and reformate my hard drive.
but im having a problem choosing what is the best to use, so i dont mess up anyhting, by it corrupting the data of my old computer.
anyways... i need to ask what it the best program to use for backing up my hard drive to dvds.
what would be the best?
You could use either Acronis True Image or Norton Ghost and create an image of your drive. Then, after reformatting, you could restore the drive to exactly what it was before reformatting.
The trouble with this method is that I cannot see any advantage to reformatting and doing this because you will have exactly the same installation after formating as you did before.
If you want a clean install and only want to backup your data at this time, I would use Cobian Backup (freeware). I have used it for many years and it is a very good program.
After the Cobian backup, you could reformat the drive and then reinstall all your program files.
Then reinstall all your data files from Cobian and at that time you should have a clean re-installation.
hey guys, just looking for an effective backup solution that will check data to make sure everything has been copied over. i was using something that had this feature a while ago, but can't remember the name. would be great if it could schedule daily or weekly backups, but not essential.
Hi, I have a few questions about backing up dvds. one is it really legal to back up a copy of your own dvds?
2. What are the or is the best backing up software?
3. I currently use xcopy. For dvd's with multiple episodes of a series (peticularly Alias) what kind of software would I use. Xcopy seems to only pick up the first episode and splits it funny with only 2gig on one disk and like 200MB on the other.
4. What is up with the dual layer thing? Can we burn dual layer dvds or is that just commercial stuff? what is it about, can i overcome it without putting a dvd on two dvds backed up?
Kind of new to this personal computer stuff I programmed mainframe back-up software mirroring hardware or applications for twenty years but never got into pc s or windows Anyway since you all know I m a novice in need of advice here goes I m running windows ME platform on a custom built processor with twin Gb hard drives mirroring software or back-up hardware The programs I have installed consume allot of space on both quot c quot and quot d quot drive My worst fear happened a five month old quot d mirroring software or back-up hardware quot drive mirroring software or back-up hardware crashed Am getting another free under warrenty but guess what I lost Right all of quot d quot Not to bad I can reload quot d quot ok I need advice on how or what I can buy to do complete back-ups of my drives or what mirror software works good so I can mirror quot c quot to quot d quot and vise versa Anyone have any ideas whats good or what I should do I can t stand talking to sales people because thier product is always the cats behind nbsp
I want to replace my hard drive. I have 2 external drives with backups of all documents and photos.
I don't mind doing an install of windows 7 on the new drive, but hate reinstalling software.
Is it possible to transfer all software from a backup? thanks
Not usually, because the installation routine for many (most?) Windows applications create their own unique Windows Registry entries as well as scattering their program files and folders all over the place.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/578487/anyway-to-back-up-software-to-external-drive/
I would appreciate software recommendations for backing up a non-networked 32 bit Win 7 PC with 600 gB of installed hard drives. Proprietary as well as open source software is of interest.
Is there any advantage to only regularly backing up the OS and e-mail files as much of the other data does not change with great frequency?
Thanks, in advance, for all advice and suggestions.
I strongly recommendimaging using Macrium Reflect Free (here is a good tutorial on how to use Macrium Reflect) for backing up System files (OS and programs; they should be kept on a separate drive or partition from data).
For data, I prefer a folder/file syncing program, such as FreeFileSync. Imaging, while necessary for backing up system files A folder/file syncing program works by comparing the folders and/or drives you have selected on a source drive to the ones on a destination drive to see what has changed, then copies and pastes new and changed files from the source drive to the destination drive and deletes files on the destination drive that had been deleted on the source drive as need to make the destination drive essentially an exact copy of the source drive.
An added feature of FreeFileSync is it can be configured to send files deleted on the destination drive to a versioning folder or drive. This helps to protect you from losing accidentally deleted files. I have a drive dedicated to versioning and I also back that drive up.
Hi, I am wanting to re-install my windows OP soon, but I dread having to go through the process of re-installing every program I currently have installed, and want to keep...
I remember some one using a program that could make a back up of all of the computer's user settings, and program installations, so that after they re-installed windows, they could simply restore those programs back onto the windows Hard drive and registry.
Does anyone know what I am talking about?
If so, what would be the name of such a program?
Would anyone recommend to me any back-up software which would enable me to back up Files and/or System? Allan
Backup Applications For All Seasons:
For boot image backups, Acronis True Image, available at NewEgg for $30 downloaded, search for Acronis.
For file backups, Cobian Backup, available free from the author's site.
For synchronizing folders and even whole data drives, Beyond Compare
For synchronizing backup folders, SyncToy, available free from Microsoft.
I am interested in backing up my files with an on-line company and was hoping I could get a few recommendations to any of you that use such a backup, such a Carbonite or one of those companies.
My main concern is I'm not particularly happy about having anything running in the background all the time.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I use Google Docs, Picasa Web Gallery and MS Sky Drive. They are manual, but have a reasonable interface and plenty of room.
I just upgraded my Google storage to 20GB for $5.00 a year.
Hope you all had a good christmas!!
I'm looking for a easy to use, full system back up software. Ideally though it has to be easy to recover my system in the event of it errr ummm 'messing up' i.e similar to laptop recovery software that you just run.
If any of you have any suggestions please leave some comments.
