The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

Got a dell laptop from 2008. it doesn't boot.  Took out the hard drive.  put it in external dock to a win 10 machine.  Made 'unusual' scratching noises and an E and F drive came up. Couldn't browse them.

Crystal Drive info didn't see the root drive.

I put it in the freezer overnight.  

No scratching noice noise now - I can browse the recovery partition.  Windows shows an F partition but can't browse it / click on F and windows says F:\ is not accessible the parameter is incorrect.

Any thoughts short of a clean room type of service?

install it internally to a PC?
Booting in linux?

Crystal Disk info data is attached - takes a few minutes after clicking on the drive to get info

Windows disk manager says F drive is RAW.  E drive (recovery partition) is NTFS Healthy

I guess a partition recovery software.

During a render computer stopped responding and restarted. The RAID now refuses to mount.  Disk Utility sees it, won't
respond to requests to mount.

Is it possible to recover RAID-0?

Hello,

I have Backup Exec ver. 14 and for the last 2 weeks I get this message saying "This cleaning media has expired. I bought a new cleaning media and I insert it in the same slot, what else do I need to do to make sure it works properly.

*I do not have support with Veritas*

Thanks

hi guys

I need to restore a file from a tape backup on Veeam. I can't for the life of me do it. I use Symantec so I am used to just being able to browse to the file location and restore.

How do you restore just one file from a tape backup?

Thanks for helping

We're currently storing data on Office 365 cloud and looking for redundancy, so far we tested Cloud Ally and it's hard to tell how well it's working. My personal feeling is it's too light, meaning it doesn't provide enough feedback of current status especially larger folders. Just says, "backup in progress" and nothing else. Depending on the folder size this can last for days.

I'm not concerned with running my own calculations to determine when the backup should finish. I'm looking for software that will do this for me or I would just FTP sync the data myself.

Question EE, what have you used for cloud to cloud backup and why?

Thank you

and I need it to highlight duplicates and make it easy to purge duplicates.

I have 48GB clogging my disk with pictures and think I have many duplicates.  Know many images exist in both the Photo Gallery AND on my disk. And often there are multiple copies in both places.

What kind of automation is there I can use to save disk space and not spend time going through each picture. I really do not have the time, but I want:

1) grouping by person to be an option, and will train the system later, when I have time
2) remove from disk when safely stored in this program

Can I use Photo Gallery on the Mac for this?

Shall I consider the Google program, the name of which I forget?

Thanks.

I wold like to scan my disk for all JPGS and se how large they all add up to. If I right click the selected files and pick "Get Info", Finder opens thousands of little windows.

I want to see the combined sizes of all JPGS.

Thanks.

I am not sure where to look to find what this disk contains and why it's almost full.

See attached error...

Mac Startup Disk is Almost Full
I have a 500GB SSD and have worried for months it was almost maxed out.

How can I find what files can be deleted for this startup disk not to max out?

We have numerous Windows 10 Pro Acer Switch 2 tablets that we have to prep for a customer and wish to image one and apply to the rest. Prepping includes installing latest build of Windows 10 pro, removing bloatware, and installing office, and any remaining windows updates. I have one machine prepped to "backup", and have done so using system image (windows 7 restore).
When i go to apply this image to another tablet (boot to windows 10 usb drive, repair pc, troubleshoot, system image restore)
select the image off of my external hdd, and get the following error immediately after starting the restore:

Re-image your computer

The system image restore failed.

Error details: A Volume Shadow Copy Service component encountered an unexpected error. Check the Application event log for more information. (0x80042302).

Any idea what could be causing this?

If anyone uses a dell 'power vault' device within their environment, do you know the name of the remote management application, and default login address/port number, e.g. can it be accessed via  a browser, or do you need to RDP onto the machine itself?

Also, as dell networking equipment is something fairly new to me, if you have 2 Dell Equalogic SAN's (one at a primary site and one at a DR site), and use backup exec for the backup application, what exactly is a 'dell powervault' for in relation to a disc-to-disc (SAN to SAN) backup process? e.g. what role does it play?

Guys,

I have a server with a asus sabertooth mobo that is giving me a raid critical error. Its saying at boot:

Problemis detected with array: 01 02
Critical status
A disk member of an array has failed or is not responding.

I understand what this is saying but when I go into the raid utility I cant find a way to get it to tell me which drive is failing. Also, it does show in the drive assignment the disk on port 01 is "single disk".

Asus has been no help.

for someone not familiar with tape backups, can you give a tech free summary of what manual daily processes would have to be performed by the staff who look after tape backups, and is this something that requires daily human activity, or weekly etc. I have just read about 'clean down' the tapes on another checklist, but as its not an area I am familiar with, I am unsure what it represents in terms of an activity. For any part of the backup process where there is manual involvement, we want some form of checklist that the manager can view to ensure all tasks took place each day, or if not signed off the manager can then assign a colleague to perform the tasks. I'm also keen from a risk angle to determine if someone did not do these various tape backup daily/weekly maintenance activities, what the actual risks could be to the overall backup process?

I have one Azure VM which exist in a different region to our other Azure VM's and  is not connected to our vnet.

I have to get data off the data disk.

Can I mount the data disk VHD  blob directly in a Windows 10 PC? Can I mount the blob across regions to an existing VM?

How s can I get the data across to our main vnet?

I added some capacity to both virtual hard disks of the only 2012 R2 guest running on the 2012 R2 host. Disk capacity was added to the guest, and I expanded both drives on the guest. All seemed good.

Little while later I received a message that the replication was critical. The 1st event ID was 33680, which only said the replication failed. This was followed immediately by IDs 32086 and 32422.

32422 said:
Hyper-V Replica failed to apply the log file onto the VHD for virtual machine 'xxx-Svr1'. (Virtual machine ID 05EB0EC0-E24E-4F3E-9AB8-CC005C78634D). An out-of-bounds write was encountered on the Replica virtual machine. The primary server VHD might have been resized. Ensure that the disk sizes of the Primary and Replica virtual machines are the same.

Oh crap...didn't realize I had to also resize the disks on the replica, too! Sigh...

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/virtualization/2013/11/14/online-resize-of-virtual-disks-attached-to-replicating-virtual-machines/ said to resize the disks on the replica, then resume replication.

Did all that...to no avail!

Restarting the host and the replication servers didn't resolve the problem. Yikes!

What should I try next?

Thanks

Does your company store data on premises, off site, in the cloud, or a combination of these? If you answered “yes”, you need a data backup recovery plan that fits each and every platform. Watch now as as Percona teaches us how to build agile data backup recovery plan.

for anyone who uses backup exec, especially 2012, can you confirm how accurate the last backup field is against each server in the backup and restore tab of the management console? can it be relied upon? and what techniques within BE could be used to get a report on all available restore points for each server you backup?

Hi everyone.
                        since  I need to analize some network traffic,  i want to know if there is a way to have the daily amount size of data saved by tsm and the top 5 servers with more traffic/data volume backuped.


Thanks in advance.

Is there a way to have a Two node S2D cluster have the cluster shared volumes replicate to single non clustered server?   I already have the hyper-v replica set up but I have some VM servers which are not HA but are on the node.  I just wanted another up to date copy of the storage.

I have a request to share a LUN with HA.
