Backup differences

Can you explain the differences in the Image backup, create a full backup and system repair disc. When and for what situation is used?

Image backup is a clear picture of exactly what is on your hard disk at the time wherever you create.  This image is used to completely replace all the content of a hard disk.  Whether the original or a replacement.  It can be used only in full.  None of the individual files or folders can be recovered from an image.  Image backups are used in situations where reliability is critical.  Images are used in mission-critical and business situations.  Most owners of Windows do not have images.

I recommend a single image.  This image is created when the system is new and no data or programs other than Windows and Office may have been installed and all had all updates available at the time requested.  This image is a kind of insurance policy to use in the case of your disk failure hard and who need to replace, or in the case where it is corrupt so desperately that it is the cleanest, fastest way to start again.

Backup is a copy of your DATA.  There is no need to back up programs (Windows or other) they can not be used. DATA backup only.  It's classic.  Your data is the most valuable thing you have.  Still, programs can be re-installed and updated day.  Back up your data frequently and on a reliable device.  The best choice is an external hard drive.  The biggest external drives with drive 3.5 "inside are the best most reliable choice.  Don't use USB thumb for backup discs.  If your total data volume is low, you can burn your backup on DVD.   You can decide how often to make backups based on how much you are willing to lose a failure occurred.

A system repair disc is another way to start your computer should he do so badly corrupted that it cannot start himself from his hard drive. You should have a just in case where.

If you need further instructions on how to do these things, just ask.

    Hi all
    What is the difference between the use of a backup Favorites file ".json" and a file of bookmarks ".html"? It seems that both of them do the same job. If this is the case, then why there are two options (.json and .html) to do the same job? If this isn't the case, then what is the reason for the availability of the two options and how are they different? Although I read the material, it didn't quite clear form me again.

    Time machine is unable to perform a backup. Not able to access the sparsebundle. First of all, there is problem with the Snow Leopard operating system. Dragon followed in the upgrade to El Capitan. Only difference was error code 109 changed to 'null '. What about someone?

    You upgrade the computer snow to El Capo and keep the same name?

    If you want to backup, it is best to start again... clean the new backup any attempt to add a previous backup failed.

    I recommend that you actually erase the TC... do a complete factory reset and start again.

    The previous backup if necessary can be archived on a USB drive connected to the TC assuming that Airport utility can still access it. Airport utility accesses the TC?

    With update installs all sorts of things can go wrong... so tell me more if you can not get anywhere.

  • What is the difference between a backup of the plant and a recovery disk?

    For me a simple question, so I hope a simple answer.

    When I got to my laptop that I created a USB using DBR recovery. It is a little more than 8 GB in size and is appointed SYSRECOVERY.

    At that time there I didn't create a backup of the plant.

    Having recently been read on things related to the re-establishment of a system in case of disk failure hard etc, I saw that Dell has said you must create USB recovery media and a backup of the plant. So, I got a new USB and today created a backup of the plant.

    Looking at it, it is also called SYSRECOVERY and both have exactly the same list of files and folders and have almost the same size.

    So just what is the difference between these 2 options (if any)?

    Or do I now have 2 USBs that will do exactly the same work to restore my laptop computer provided that the factory?

    Case there is no difference, why Dell offer both (and recommend you create both)?

    Thank you

    Technically speaking a recovery media and backup of the plant are the same. But according to the post that you saw at Dell, recovery media is a backup of backup from the factory with the files and applications that you added later. Therefore, to be on the safe side, Dell recommends to create a backup of files and software that have been added later (or is not part of the default configuration).

    The factory backup contains all drivers and software according to the configuration of the PC, and that were pre-installed on your computer.

    Generally, Windows failure, you can use factory backup media to restore the PC without affecting your personal files and software. In the event of hard disk failure, where the hard drive is replaced, recovery media will be useful to restore Windows as well your files and applications.

  • Differences between a system and backup image

    Hello

    I am amazed at what are the real differences between backup and image of the system. I heard that image system stores all data and programs (including the operating system) stored on the Windows disk (say, C:\) and on the other hand,backup only stores data on drive of Windows (C:\).

    In this State, system image has more power to save us from lack of OS, applications and data.
    But in the procedure of backup in Windows 7, there's a scripture that says, 'it also to create a system image! So in this status, backup system image backup + data, has everything the two se. Is this right?

    Not everyone uses these words in the same way, but as far as I'm
    concerned, the backup is the Act to protect themselves by making a copy
    files you don't want to run the risk of losing. If a system image
    is not something different from a backup, it's a kind of backup.

  • backup and archiving of difference b/w

    I am a new user of fast food.
    Is there a difference in the protection and exploitation of archives.

    Hi akhilms:

    The short answer is that archiving is intended for storage of the previously saved data.

    Simplified data protection process is:

    Base server (with volumes arranged into protection groups)-> RapidRecovery-> backup (organized in recovery points)-> various operations of backup validation (mountability, mimicry, checksum verification, recovery points check etc.) -> Consolidation according to the retention policy planning (i.e. keep all 3 days recovery points, an hour for 2 days, then 1 a day for a week to 1 per month for 3 months then 1 per year for 5 years etc.).

    In addition, you can configure replication by using a different kernel of fast food. The cumulative process would be 'copy' the recovery points from the base of the source to the marrow of replication target. These recovery point would be consolidated as well (most of the time on a different schedule from the retention policy).

    If you feel it necessary to keep one or more strings of recovery (recovery points channels begins with a base image) altered by the cumulative process (consolidation) you can archive them. Archiving does NOT require another nucleus of RapidRecovery. Do that enough space with enough available memory (local, network, clouds) to complete the internal procedures Ops ARE / s a reasonable period of time.

  • Why the format does not work on my backup incremental level 1 the difference?

    I use following script to make a backup of difference incremental level 1.
    ------------------------------
    Run {}
    allocate channels ch1 disc type;
    Set order id "Monday_INC_1_df";
    backup as compressed backupset database incremental level 1
    format ' / opt/oracle/rman/bk/incr1_df_%d_%U'
    tag "Monday_INC_1_df".
    database more entered archivelog delete;
    output channel ch1.
    }
    -------------------------------

    According to this scenario, all the rman output files are placed in "/ opt/oracle/rman/bk / '...  And his label is 'Monday_INC_1_df'.

    But at the bottom of the newspaper, I find the archived log rman output files located in "/ opt/oracle/flash_recovery_area/TEST/backupset/2014_12_02 / '. And his label is "TAG20141202T210529".
    Also, at the bottom of the newspaper, the output data files rman files was partly on the right path "/ opt/oracle/rman/bk / '. And it seems that the data files has been supported for 2 times. The second time datafile rman output files was badly located in the path "/ opt/oracle/flash_recovery_area/TEST/backupset/2014_12_02 / '. And his label is "TAG20141202T215627".

    ALTER database begin backup is a SQL command and is required to start a backup maintained by users . Backups managed by users have special sections in the documentation of backup and restoration provided by Oracle.
    After this statement, it is up to the user to copy the data, ideally by the Oracle provided o/s ocopy command files

    backup database is an RMAN command to back up the database. When filesperset is greater than 1, it will be multiplex multiple datafiles in 1 backupset.
    backup database may check (when you specify the clause of 'sense check') for logical corruption.
    ALTER database begin backup done nothing of the kind.

    That is to say: they are apples and pears.

  • How to take account of the difference in the size of the mobile backup folder?

    Hello

    Recently, I noticed that my backups take a large part of my hard drive.  (See the screenshot below).

    I then ran this command in a Terminal, I don't understand, but found online: sudo-chxd 1.  When I did, I got these results:

    Looks like my mobile account of backups for 241G of the above backups 257 G!  But, when I use the Terminal to show hidden files in Finder, and then navigate to the. File MobileBackups, then request for information for this folder, I see this:

    So, my questions are:

    1. Why Finder that thinks. MobileBackups is only 8.37 G, while the Terminal thinks it's over 200 G?  Is how important it that I have multiple user accounts on the computer?  (Seems to be too far in the hierarchy of files for that matter).
    2. Even if. MobileBackups is really more than 241G, which represents another 16 g of backups that shows the system information window?

    Thank you!  I am new to this, any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    When Time Machine backs up a Mac laptop, some free space will be used to make a snapshots the, who are backups of deleted files recently. The space occupied by the local snapshots is declared as available by the Finder and should be considered as such. In the view of storage of the information system, snapshots appear them as backups. The snapshots are deleted automatically when they expire or when free space becomes less than a certain level. You don't need to usually and should not, remove snapshots them yourself. The Finder cannot properly report the size of snapshots.
