second question to follow up about possible partition for tax program
Posted on 2012-09-02
The second issue is the problem I have when I back up files. To do this with ProSystems fx Tax, you have to go through a component called Office Manager. You then choose to backup or restore the tax files and choose where you want to put them (it prompts you for a removable disk). It stores these in zip files and they do not seem to be very stable.
For instance, when I tried to restore some from either a thumb drive or some other place on the hard drive in a folder, they would not all restore or some would have errors.
Secondly when I open the folder that these zip files are on, it seems to set off some kind of execute command and I get these icons popping up out of control and it is hard to close them.
I also purchased a WD My Passport 1 TB drive as my primary backup. I had been trying to use JustCloud, FilesAnywhere or Acronis with an old Maxtor 500GB hard drive but it was too bulkey and the online programs took forever. I bailed on Carbonite a long time ago; maybe I should have kept that and the new one that I have?
Any thoughts about this WD Passport product. I was also "convinced" to purchase a virus software when the salesman showed me an analysis of the different anti-virus programs. I had been using Avast Pro and it was way down on the list so he influenced me to buy ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus Program. I had purchased Tune Up Utilities 2012 from a recommendation from EE before and am very happy with it.
