Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage.

Hi everyone:
                        i need to restore a file on the same location and when i execute the restore i got this message:

Hi experts,
I know this is old NAS server but still needs to support due to some reasons.

NAS Configuration
OS :- Windows storage server 2008 - 64
2 hard drive – RAID 1 configuration for OS (Not Backed up - Want to take backup of this HDs)
12 hard drive – RAID 6 configuration for image backup. (Backed up by tape drive)  

I have failure in one Hard drive (internal OS) and RAID-1 is degraded. To change failed HD i have to open server so before that i want to take backup.   Tried Windows server backup utility to take backup but it is failing on Windows SBS Server 2008 Backup fails  with error code 2155348075 (failed because the Volume Shadow Copy Service operation to create a shadow copy of the volumes being backed up failed with following error code '2155348075.) and VSS (volume shadow copy service error)

We have norton backup exec 2010 for tape backup.

Any idea how to take backup of windows server storage 2008 ? latest Acronis ? or how to resolve standard windows backup error ?

Hi everyone.
                         i need to calculate the total amount of data residing on my tsm storage pools and the % of data on the tape volumes.

Thanks in advance.

Installed SP SPX. Made a MIXED backup schedule. If I want to restore the full volume, what do I chose from the list of backups - the base image, or the most recent incremental image. If its the most recent incremental image, I take it the base backup in restored as well. Yes?

Win7Pro/64

We have a few windows servers a few linux - a few physical, but recently got a decently beefy vmware server and are running a handful of things on there.   We currently use Acronis but it is TERRIBLE...  mindbogglingly bad.  totally unreliable.... not even reliable to tell you when it's failing... it will have a nice big green "OK" next to servers that are NOT backed up.... sorry /rant.....

I want something RELIABLE... I want to set up the backups, and be able to rely they will happen or I will be notified, and preferably I dont have to intervene and have support try to fix things for hours every couple months.

People,

Can anyone please share some explanation and the difference between the Storage Array Snapshot (HPE Lefthand) and the VMware snapshot?

Because at the moment, I've got Exchange server which is quite big in size (4.8 TB) size in total VMFS footprint, and when I look in the VMFS LUN free space on my HPE Lefthand SAN, I only have several hundreds of GB free space left. does it means the backup with Storage array snapshot will be failed or can cause the whole Storage array becoming Read Only due to no more disk space left at the SAN level ?

iPhone stuck in recovery mode.  We've tried resetting and DFU mode but to no avail.  Is there a program that I can just install on my computer, plug in the iPhone and the program allows me to manually find the pictures on the phone's hard drive?

Hi,
I am striving to get all confidential files off of my PC and stored ONLY in the cloud.

Example: Is it possible to
(a) store a spreadsheet in google drive and
(b) edit it in google drive and
(c) NOT actually have it stored locally on my PC at all

That way , if my PC is stolen there will never be confidential files on it

Kicked off a full backup and not sure why the option to continually run didn't show. I suspect something with imagemanager. I ran a full backup with the idea that I would create an incremental backup and schedule it to run each night, assuming it would presume from the full image. Is this an option or do I have to run a new full backup with incremental's?

Thank you.

Hi Everyone,

I have a site with a single Physical server with Server 2012R2, we are converting the physical server to a Hyper v VM.

The client wants to consider a failover solution but doesnt want to purchase a whole additional server to replicate to.

Is there any NAS or other storage device that could be used for the VM backup and potentially as a Failover solution if the main server goes down.

we would also consider this backup to also backup offsite to Azure or similar

Does anyone have any suggestions or do we have no option but to consider a second server for VM Replication?

Thanks everyone

Into this degraded RAID group:

3Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It has already lost 4x HDD hence I notice they are all must be replaced manually on the physical slot and then manually added again to the RAID group as above, but I do not know how to do it and what's the risk ?

Thanks.

Hi Experts,

I just downloaded Acronis True Image 16 trial, but before I purchase, I am hoping if someone can answer the following.

I created a simple backup to backup 2 follders, incrementally, and full backup every 28 cycles. In the Subject of the email alert, can I specify if  the backup was full or incremental?

I tried restoring a .text file to a different location (my desktop), but when I open it in Notepad, I get Access Denied??

In the subject line I get "Backup task completed successfully.", but in the email body (pasted below) I see "Failed to create snapshot for backup", how come?

Hello,

We are a SMB. We would like to have our current tape backup overhauled. We are backing up everything to tape right now but we won't be able to recover easily from tape if ever needed.

Please advise on what we should be looking for in the new backup solution (features and aspects).

Your suggestions are much appreciated.


Thanks,
Rawan Abbas

Wondering if anyone can give me some pointers on how to set this up.

I would like to create a folder where I could drop files in and such files would be moved to a cloud storage service and removed from the local PC.

I can use any of these services:
Pcloud
Dropbox
Google Drive
OneDrive for Business or Personal

Your suggestions and pointers are greatly appreciated.

Hi Experts,

Can anyone please recommend a good software that will work on Windows 7. I need to backup two folders, 2.8GB and 2.4GB respectively.

Main Features - I need it to:
* Perform full backup every 2 weeks
* Perform incremental backup every 12 hours
* Runs even when users are logged out or has locked (Shut down > lock)

Nice to have
*Backing up FROM a network location (NAS), I know this is strange, but would help me a lot.
* To send an email via a secured SMTP server, for both succeeded and failed jobs.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I understand that VVOLS is a logical construct which exposes the SAN's underlying capabilities to VMware for granular provisioning. Here is my question. One of our newer SAN's was purchased with the license for DeDup. When using DeDup, the SAN see's the extra free space created but is not reflected in Vmware on the datastore as in more free space post dedup. With that being said, if DeDup is one of the main features we are after right now, what VALUE would adding VVOLS to the manage side of things do for us if an? We know we have alot of slack space out their and trying to making things more efficient.

Hi Experts,

How can I setup Windows 7 Backup to run twice daily. I am positive that it will not overlap, but when I configure the setup I get the attached, which does not have much choice. Is there a workaround?

I'm working on a project that receives a UDP stream from another device.  I'm trying to parse the stream but haven't been successful.  The data stream comes in this format:

TYPE(1 Byte) + SRC_ID (4 Bytes) + LINKING (1 Byte) + FLAGS (4 Bytes) + VERSION (4 Bytes) [+ AUTHENTICATION (10 Bytes)]

I'm stuck doing this in VB, what is my best way of parsing through the data? For instance the SRC_ID, I know what the ID its sending is but anyway I parse it doesn't come out with what I know it should be.

Any help would be appreciated

Hello Experts,

Using the Backup & Restore utility that is built-in Win 7 Pro, is it possible to:

* Backup FROM a network location or Mapped Drive?
* Backup x2 Daily?
* Send an e-mail if backup succeeded or failed?

Any help will be appreciated.

I have a local backup in place. I now want a cloud-based backup as well. Please could you experts recommend one.
Price is obviously a consideration but it must be a reputable company that has a long term future.
It needs to provide a versioning function.
Something else that bothers me about backup - I am concerned about the possibility that if malware were to gain access to my system that it could theoretically delete the data in my local backup. We use external hard drives that are rotated, so there is always off-site disconnected backups, but this is still a concern. What do the cloud-based backup solutions do to protect against this eventuality? Are some companies better than others at dealing with this?

Thank you

we're out of support on this license. hoping someone can let me know if this is normal or what to do about this.

Backing up C drive on a pretty new dell optiplex running windows 10. .  The C drive incremental can take hours (it's an SSD if that matters?).  The data drive (a standard platter type drive) takes minutes or seconds.

I wonder if the SSD is churning all those hours / going to burn it out early?!

All the logs for the C drive show a long time between 2 entries in the same place.  Anyone able to explain what's happening at that point?  Amount of time varies.  This one is what, more than 12 hours!
