  • Reference Dell backup and restore is unable to create a DVD of recovery on Windows 8

    Dear Dell,

    I am creating recovery discs "Dell backup and Recovery application" but when I was asked to insert the second DVD, the optical drive keeps rejecting DVD. The application will not continue to burn the second DVD and seems to be frozen. I tyied with different DVD brands/manufacturers and also-/ + r unfortunately. The question remains. I could find this 593906 article published 21-01 - 2013 ( link). Although I did the updates, I'm still not able to create recovery discs!   File: after having inserted the Disc 3 application gives the message "Dbr.exe-" not found disk and stays there and rejects the DVD.  I spoke with the Greek team of Dell. I was told that warranty does not cover the support of sw even if my unit is less than a week. Furthermore, I learned that although "Dell backup and restore" application said THAT DELL is not actually a Dell product so they can't support. They my proposed to use the recovery of files from windows 7 place (which needs at least 8 DVD!). As you can understand it's a workaround and not a Solution.

    I hope that someone from Dell will consider the issue and to come back with a precise answer and a permanent solution.   (Model: inspiron 15 3521). Thank you

  • DVD how much we need for the files backup with backup and restore program?

    Hello how are you?
    DVD how much we need for the files backup with backup and restore program? Y at - it large differences in the time and space between write backups on DVD and external hard drive?

    I do not understand your question.  Asked how the space has been used on your C: drive and you answered 60 GB.  Now you say your PARTITION C: is 60 GB with only 20 GB used?  I really don't understand what you're so confused.  It's simple arithmetic grade 3rd.  What is space you USED on the C: drive, that multiply by 0.7 to obtain the amount of space will be used on your backup disk after compression.  Divide this number by 4.7 and round.  That's how many DVDs you'll need if you insist on the use of DVDs for backup.  Then

    (1) If you are using 60 GB, the answer is (60 x.7) / 4.7 = 8.936.  I rounded up to 9 and added 1 just to be sure.

    (2) If you use only 20 GB, the answer is (20 x.7) / 4.7 = 2.97 rounded up to 3.  Add 1 and get 4.

    If you use only 20 GB, I am very surprised, because almost any important installation of Windows 7 is going to take more than 20 GB.

    All of this assumes that you do NOT use the Windows backup and restore program, but one that I recommended.  When I used the windows one, the results were several times the space that I used on my C: partition.

    Good luck.

  • Upgrade Vista Home Premium to Ultimate - Windows complete PC Backup and Restore

    Dear Madam, dear Sir

    Upgraded my laptop HP DV7 Vista Home Premium to Ultimate, mainly to use Windows complete PC Backup and Restore.

    The restore time and unfortunately no option in the boot menu at startup to restore system from images. No menu advanced etc. I guess starting always remains at the level of the premium and does not provide "Windows complete PC Backup and Restore" restore options.

    Grants menu of system restore points, with only the last good restore point and no option to select point of previous restoration or system image to restore from.

    Mmmm nice ideas...

    Thanks in advance

    Good day

  • Backup and restore will not format disk

    I try to use Backup and Restore. When I click on the back of the files, I get a pop-up box that asks me to format the drive. After clicking on the Format, the following pop up box says unsuccessful Format. Sometimes, he also disk write-protected. I use Vista Home Premium and using an optical DVD +/-RW drive. I was unable to find anything on it. Has anyone else had this problem? What I can do. I check all the settings I can. Thanks for any help.

    Would you consider investing in an external USB drive and use it as your backup media.  This will work part-time full support until CD as the only hold about 700 MB of data and your hard drive is perhaps in a fit of 250 GB, what amounts to a large number of CD on current prices an external drive will pay for itself within a very short time and you are mucking around with several CD

    He needs that a defective CD or an unexpected shutdown to occur and you may lose all your backup met before this type of failure.  If you must use the CD then just use them to backup your important data.  If you need to perform a full restore, it may be faster in the long term to perform a recovery operation by using your installation media rather than feeding in a multitude of CD.

    One thing that I met, if you buy the CD on the main roads, is that, if they are not stored properly, at home or in a store, the last few CD inside tend to stick to the neighbor CD, which is not a good thing.

    My personal choice is to use a third-party imaging software to back up the entire partition or drive.  I save on a different hard drive installed.  You can use the external hard drive, I tried to sell you.  The entire backup (40 GB) takes about 10 minutes, with a restoration taking around the same time.  I double save my data more valuable, as well, of other external media, like USB, DVD, etc.

    I made a backup of my personal files of Vista on a Flash drive with the Restore Wizard and back;  Then I re-installed Windows Vista. When I tried to restore my backup, I get the message that there is no backup file on the computer.


    This is the reason for no backup file on the computer, you need to use the advanced option, etc.

    «3 click the restore files .» (See screenshot below)
    NOTE: To restore a backup that is not shown here, click Advanced Restore Options instead, click Advanced Restore Options (Restore files from a backup made on a different computer). »


    I never tried to use Vista backup and Restore Wizard to back up files to a Flash drive for this reason:


    • No backup files on the same hard disk that Windows is installed. For example, to make the back not files on a recovery partition.

    • Always store media used for backups (external hard disks, DVDs, or CDs) in a place course

  • Backup and Restore Center

    Try to restore from a backup cd. I get "There is no backup available on this computer" I have Windows vista home premlium. Back up the files, about a week ago. I had to do a recovery on my laptop (put it when I got it)


    Thanks for your help - I could get my tax files and other files buy just copy them from the CD/DVD on my hard drive. It worked, now I'm afraid to try backup and restore because I don't think it works.

    Hi ChicagoExPat,

    Make sure that the disks are writable, which means that you can add, remove, or modify the content. If you decide to use this method and have a lot of files to backup, be sure to have enough disks to complete the job. The back up files Wizard you indicates how much space you need whenever you perform a backup and recommends the type of media to use.

  • Windows 7 backup and restore shows no internal hard disk and the backup location option

    Windows 7 backup and restore is only the possibility to go back to D drive which is a burner DVD C and F is both internal and external hard drives C is the system drive and F is a newly formatted 1 TB drive free. I access F in Explorer windows without any problems and I would use it for backup.

    Hi dairy Tech 2000,

    Welcome to the Microsoft answers site.

    Drive/C: would not be shown to the backup files since this is the system drive. You cannot save files to C:/drive to C:/drive.

    However, when you change the backup settings to another drive on the computer, follow the steps below:
    1. click on start.
    2. backup and restore type of search.
    3. click on change settings.

  • "Backup and restore" in Windows 7 saves nothing, except the data files?

    I want to save my 'Favorites' of internet list, messages stored in Live mail and my address book in Live mail.  It seems that the "Backup and restore" function in Windows 7 saves only data files unless you choose the option of system image, and then it is not yet clear and seems to save much larger files that I could put on a DVD.

    Can someone direct me to information on this topic or suggest a better method of simple backup.

    By default, Windows 7 saving files in libraries and folders for all users.  That includes everything in your user folder: data applications, contacts, desktop, downloads, Favorites, music, photos, documents, etc..  Windows Live Mail stores messages in the application data folder, so they are automatically backed up.

    The system image contains everything on your computer.

    Both types of backup can create more data that a DVD can hold.  I recommend that you get an external drive for backups. Owner, Boulder computer Maven

  • Backup and restore can save to the network location?


    "If you save your backups on a hard drive or network, Windows backup will create a new, full backup for you automatically if necessary."

    This indicates, it is possible to save backups on a network location, but I don't see a way to specify a backup and restore settings.  It only shows hard drives, DVD, etc..

    You can save your backups on a network location on Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise.

  • Document the backup and restoration

    Is there some general best practices when it comes to document how your process to backup/restore your oracle databases?

    I'm always afraid that if only an admin understand how backup/restore procedures works for critical business systems, if they left the organization that someone fill their shoes may be hard to understand the process and then if a restore is necessary may not able to complete the restoration.

    But being not not a DBA myself, what kind of details should they document. What kind of details you document in your organizations?

    Also, how many times do you check by database restorations?

    Is there some general best practices when it comes to document how your process to backup/restore your oracle databases?

    But being not not a DBA myself, what kind of details should they document. What kind of details you document in your organizations?
    Your fears are justified. One of the risk factors more important that an org has is when these key knowledge has not been documented, were reported badly or only exists in the mind of one or several persons.

    Here is a presentation of the excellent white paper of the Oracle world that covers this exact topic

    Oracle Database Backup and restore
    Best practices and new features

    This presentation includes an overview of the backup/restore of the issues and possible solutions, as well as a case study.
    You essentially have a similar paper for your own organization.

    Your first steps should be to do what you did in this forum: gather ALL the information and documentation of your peers and the management of it on backup and restore procedures, if any, exist.

    Implying that the step #1 is actually identify (i.e. to make a list of contacts) of the key people in your company with information either in written form or in their own head.

    The most important resource is to start with your own expert.

    Check out the latest collection of any type that have been made recently and collect information about the way they did. It is much more important to begin with better understand how your own org backup/restore, rather than learn best practices. Best practices do you much good in an emergency if your org does not follow them first.
    Also, how many times do you check by database restorations?
    It depends on the size and complexity of the system, but for the big orgs that I contracted with I usually recommend at least an annual process.

    I also recommend you use any offline storage process include the creation of checksums of the backup files. This ensures that, in case the files are needed, they can be added again check to make sure that there has been no corruption. Too many times the files are archived just without any test and then when they needed it turns out that they are corrupt. If you have never made a backup copy of a CD or DVD and then later discovered it wouldn't work you know what I mean.

    In summary:

    1. start by talking to people keys to the knowledge
    2 document available and stored in a central location
    3. start a mini-project to fill the gaps in the existing literature and knowledge
    4 learn the best practices in the field (what you're asking here)
    5. begin to migrate your orgs practices based on best practices.

    Good luck! We need more people like you who are interested in this topic.

  • Satellite P750/P755 - backup and restore Windows 7


    My hard drive is about to fail on my Windows 7 Satellite P750; I get warnings of impending failure for a month now. I bought a hard drive again, and he's ready to go, but I am unable to create a backup and restore point. I get an error message 0 x 81000037: "snapshots of files cannot be read.

    Let me give you a part of the history of my machine before we get to the question. Windows 7 is pre-installed on this machine. A year ago, I created a new partition and installed Linux. Linux then took over the responsibilities of the boot. A couple of weeks, I deleted the Linux partition. This gave me a problem because the computer could not start. Fortunately I had recently created a return upwards and the restore point, and during the process, I was asked if I wanted to create a Windows 7 Home Premium repair disc. I could use this CD to access a command line tool that makes the new bootable machine.

    However, I have more a hidden on my machine boot partition (at least according to the disk management snap-in I'm not). Now, I get the above error when I try to create a new backup and restore point. I don't have a copy of the previous backup and restore point (I deleted it to make room for a new).

    From my research, apparently, one of the possible causes of the error 0 x 81000037 is related to the size of the hidden boot partition. Because I do not have the hidden boot partition I fear this could be the cause.

    There are other possible causes of this error. For example, a virus that the antivirus refuses to give access to during the back up and restore the partition, and junction points in to save readers who are the mounted volumes. I ran a full scan on my computer and cannot find any threats. I checked my junction points (which are a bit) and none are mounted drives.

    This brings me to suspect that the lack of a boot partition is the problem. I saw in the forums of some suggest it is better to back up all my data in the traditional way (already done, since you ask), install the new drive to hard and then reinstall Windows 7.

    So eventually, we get to my question!

    Windows 7 is installed on my machine, I think that I don't have the disks to reinstall on a new hard drive. Is this correct? I am able to get a copy?

    To be honest, I wouldn't reinstall Windows on a hard disk again, rather than using a return to the top of the spirit and point of restoration. I have a LOT of programs and rubbish that have accumulated in it in the (almost) last 3 years.

    Thank you for your patience. If there are some details that might be useful, but I left out (I'm sure there is) please let me know.

    > I think Windows 7 is installed on my machine, that I don't have the disks to reinstall on a new hard drive. Is this correct? I am able to get a copy?

    You have not all discs because Toshiba provides clean recovery disc creator software which is always pre-installed on new laptop computers.
    This recovery disk tool or support of creator creates the recovery disk that can be used to recover the laptop.

    It was a big mistake not to create this disk, however, you have the possibility to order this disc here:
