External Hard Drive

posted by: dee_can on 11.24.2009 at 10:48 am in Computer Help Forum

I finally took the plunge and got a Seagate External HD after I almost lost everything on my computer a few weeks ago. I eventually recovered the computer - it was some sort of memory failure. Anyway, it was enough of a scare to realize that I should really back up my computer (have never done it before!).

So, I connect the HD this morning, and backed up my files. I'm considering getting the software that makes a complete image of the hard drive, however - but is backing up the files enough? Also, I'd like to know if I can back up more than one computer on the same external hard drive - iow, can I back up my laptop and my desktop on the same one, or would it make things too difficult to keep track of? The HD is 1TB, and my laptop (Vista OS) is 4G/desktop (Windows XP OS) is 512MB with an extra 250MB added on recently.

Thanks, Dee

Normally in this situation you would do a Windows repair with the XP CD.

Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password.
The administrator password is blank by default, so unless one was actually set, just press Enter.
You'll see C:\WINDOWS>
type in:
COPY D:\i386\NTLDR C\:
COPY D:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
where D is the drive letter for your CD drive.
Remove the CD and type exit.
Reboot your machine and see if that has fixed the problem.

Bob if you use XP then the computer will not recognise blank DVDs. XP is not capable of that, Vista is. Your new DVD burner should have come with proprietary software anyway unless you bought OEM equipment.

There is an excellent freebie I use called Deep Burner, plus plenty of others too.

Hi sunshines. If you press CTRL + ALT + the Print Screen key it will copy just the dialog box. You can paste that into Paint or Irfanview or MS Word by clicking into the chosen application and pressing CTRL + V. After saving you will need to upload that file to Photobucket or a similar storage website, the either use the html code (to show the picture in your post) or just link to the picture.

if you want to just put your screen capture directly into an email to send to someone all you do is while on the screen you want to capture do as owbist said hit the prt scr button then do nothing else, go to your email open the new email to write and put the cursor in the body of the email box then right click and hit paste, it will paste the screen capture in the email body.

there are some good little freebie programs out there that are even better than the regular print screen on your pc. Some that I like are
Gadwin printscreen
http://www.aplusfreeware.com/categories/mmedia/FastStoneCapture.html

http://www.wisdom-soft.com/downloads/downloadfiles.htm

those are some good safe choices for anyone looking for a nice screencapture utility.

Personally I am usually on my linux pc and I dearly love ksnapshot, I wish they had a windows version, there is a gnome version too but I don't use gnome.

LYNN I have never ever used an AOL browser, toolbar, email or anything else AOL related so I can not help you.

Perhaps you are running more programs than are needed when the computer boots. Programs that are downloaded and/or installed sometimes adds itself to the startup programs and most of the time are not needed at startup. You can see the programs that run at startup by doing the following: Select Start - Run - then key in "msconfig" in the Run box -- without the quotes, then Okay. A box will show with several tabs. Select the Startup tab to see the programs. There wiil be some with a check mark. Those run at startup. Do not uncheck any until you determine whether it it okay to start without the programs that are checked. There are a number of sites that allow for searching the programs with recommendations to keep checked or not needed at startup. ppedia.com bleepingcomputer.com answersthatwork.com castlecops.com sysinfo.org. This may be a lengthy process. My startup has 33 programs listed but I permit only 6 to run when the computer boots. Make a list of the checked programs and do some research yourself.

Well you could easily start with a disk clean up, defrag then run RegSeeker with default settings as asolo suggests then use the PC Pitstop I suggested above. From all that you would be more aware of potential problems.

PC Pitstop changes nothing, it simply tests various components on your computer and reports back to you with it's finding and recommendations.

You can check the status of any hardware installation in Device Manager.

To check the status of your device

Open Device Manager.
Double-click the device category to display all devices in that category.
Right-click your device, and then click Properties.
On the General tab, read the Device status message.

If no Plug and Play hardware is found, a list of hardware types appears. Click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list, and then click Next.
In the Common hardware types list, click the appropriate hardware category, and then click Next.

Regarding your FAT32 volume, you can convert the drive to the NTFS file system. That should solve the limitation problem. The Convert command will retain all of your data and is the preferred file system for Windows XP. Here's a link explaining file systems and the use of the convert command.

The old "scandisk" from Windows 98 is now called Error Check on XP. Several ways to get there, but here's one way:

1) Left click (twice) on My Computer desktop icon
2) Right click the hard disk (usually C)
3) Click Properties
4) Open the Tools tab
5) Choose Error Checking (check now button)
On next boot up, the scan will run. It will take a while depending on the size of the hard drive. Then run the defrag utility.

Anyway, what I am asking is for daughter, she would like to do a clean up, and she has XP, or somesuch, and would she be doing the cleanup the same way, or has that changed as things have become a little newer?
Appreciate anything someone can provide. I have been on here since 99?, and have learned a few things, most stuff I just pass over, cuz I don't need it, but thinking this could be something to help her.

Roxio easy media creator 8 How do I

posted by: loralee on 08.25.2007 at 10:02 am in Computer Help Forum

Is there a way to burn a whole file to a DVD with just one click? Within the file I have lots of other files.

I am doing a back up each week as I add more documents/images to these file folders. Some of these files may have 10 other file folders within the main file.

The way I back up my files now I have to click on each file to add to the DVD. IT can take me a couple of hours to do a backup of the files.

I am using Windows XP Home editon.
Thank you Lora

RE: Roxio easy media creator 8 How do I (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: msm84 on 08.27.2007 at 09:58 am in Computer Help Forum

I also use Roxio and its very easy to do. Just hit "add data", browse to the folder you want, open it either by "right click, open" or I quickly double click it and it opens", then click on the first file in the folder, scroll to the last file and hold down "shift" and click on the last file. Now all the files will be highlighted and click on "add". They will now all be added to the list to burn. Just keep doing this with each folder until you have reached the max content for that cd or dvd. Thats it!

If you need to know how large a folder is so you can estimate how many you can fit on a cd or dvd, just check them first by going to the folder you want to save and place your cursor on the folder (do not click on it) and the size will magically appear or right click and go down to "properties" for the size and file count.

Yes.
Just click on the file you want and click on "add".
No need to open it up.
I burn the "My Doc" file all the time and when you slip the burned disk in the drive, you can then open the file to get at each one that is in it.

I use Nero but I imagine they all work the same as far as what and how you can burn.

want to watch MS PowerPoint slide on tv

posted by: JudyS_Ont on 10.04.2005 at 12:10 pm in Computer Help Forum

Dell 8400, WIN XP, P-4 3.0 GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HD, MS PowerPoint 2003

I have been creating 'special occassion' slide shows in MS PowerPoint and giving to relatives on a CD so they can view it on their computer.
I want to put these shows, and future ones, created in MS PP, on a DVD in the required format that they can be viewed on tv.

I googled 'MS PowerPoint to DVD' and have found a few programs that I think will help me out, but I wanted to see if any users here have done this, and what program you recommend. I know I'll have to purchase the program and that's not an issue. The fact that it is quick and easy to use is what I need.
(I think the format I need to use for North America tv is NTSC. Is that correct?)

Also, I plan on getting a DVD-R burner as my current one is a DVD+R, not compatible with most dvd players. My computer is still on warranty, so I plan on getting an external one. (1394 or USB)
Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations on a good drive?

I'm not real happy with this one. It's supposed to be 'scrappy' but I don't really know how to do scrappy. If I do another one like this, I think I'll do some planning and using cornerstones would really make it easier, too. However, maybe using cornerstones would do away with the 'look' of stained glass?????

DS & DDIL's wedding quilt

posted by: lorettaf on 06.18.2006 at 08:02 am in Quilting Forum

Here are some pictures of the wedding quilt I made for my DS and DDIL.
They married last July 3, 2005, but I didn't even get started on the quilt until after that. Their colors were black and white with red roses, so the quilt is black/white and red. The backing is white TOT
with large roses.

The men wore red pocket squares instead of boutineers, and they had to buy them...couldn't rent them like the tux. So I took one of the pocket squares to a local graphic artist place and had them professionally embroider it. I just finished the quilt a couple days ago, but the date on the label says July 3, 2005, because that is their wedding date...I wanted that on the label instead of the
finish/quilting date.

I don't like to piece, so my friend in FL pieced it for me. She does almost all of my quilt tops for me as she is much better piecer than I.

It is hand quilted with verigated white to black thread.

Question about corner squares for my sashing

posted by: amcfeely on 06.16.2006 at 07:26 pm in Quilting Forum

Okay I have my neices quilt blocks made. I am going to us a WOW for the sashing. Should I use corner squares? I usually do but this thing is so loud that I am just not sure. I am hoping the white sashing will tone it down just a bit. I have enough of all the fabric left that I could do multi colored corner squares. Please help I just don't know what to do from here.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is a picture of all the blocks.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A little closer of the bottom blocks.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
These are the top blocks. Sorry it looks all goofy but I took the picture upside down and then flipped it.

The boys picked almost all of the fabric, after Aly told us what colors she wanted. They also designed most of how the blocks went together. She said she loved a pinwheel quilt I made awhile ago and would like to have one for herself. She also decided along the way she wanted hearts. This quilt has been in the planning stages for well over a year and half. She wanted pictures on it but my SIL just couldn't manage to send them so we decided to do something with fairies on it with a heart and pinwheel border. Well that just drove me crazy trying to figure it all out. So my oldest saw something similar to this in a quit magazine, actually a few quilts that we combined the ideas from. And this is how it turned out. I want to have this finished before we go to Phoenix at the end of the month so I can deliver it to her.

So please give me some ideas.

Amy

Also:

FWIW = for what it's worth
TIA = thanks in advance
WYSIWYG = what you see is what you get
WOF = width of fabric (cutting term)
JM2C = just my .02 cents
HST = half square triangle(s)
bump = posting just the word "bump" to move a thread back up to the top of the listed threads on the forum
ttt = to the top (same use as bump)
SO = significant other (partner/not a legal spousal unit)

Off Topic means you are posting a thread that is not related to the Forum Topic, in this case, Quilting.

HTH = Hope this helps!
