Can I use Windows 7 backup to allow limited users save their own files?
I use Windows 7 Professional.
It seems that administrator rights are required to set up and run Windows backup, even if the only files selected for backup are those who belong to the local Standard user who runs it.
This is true even if the Standard local user account is added to the backup operators security group.
This seems to be a direct violation of best practices 1) always run as a limited user and 2) always back up your files.
Am I missing something?
What is the 'official Microsoft way' for Standard users, which is not necessary the case of administrator rights to save their own files?

How can I identify the name of the invisible file for a backup file successfully to an external hard drive USB2 separate? I use Windows Vista backup program (Service Pack 2), and I need to do backups plus two from other computers on the same external hard drive. To do this, I think I would need to identify each backup file separate I know which file to specify if I need to do a restore.
How can I accomplish this? The program does not seem to give me the ability to specify a file to which to write the backup during a given session files. In addition, I do not understand why I can not see the file name in Windows Explorer - my files options are defined to be able to view hidden and system. Would be grateful for any help you can provide, tonight if possible. Best regards, Oliver for Norm

The OEM Versions of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 all have no rights transfer.
OEM of Windows versions are identical to the versions commercial full license with the following exception:
-OEM versions don't offer any free direct support from Microsoft technical support Microsoft
-OEM Licenses are tied to the computer first you install and activate it on
-OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard
-OEM versions does not move directly from an older Windows operating system
You will need to purchase a new license of full version. You can purchase a Windows 7 Professional OEM entirely new license and use the product key to activate it:
You can find software OEM System Builder of dozens of online merchants. The current price for OEM Windows 7 Professional Newegg, for example, is $ 140. When I checked a few minutes ago, Amazon offered packages OEM Windows 7 Professional from several vendors at prices ranging from $ 101 to $ 150. When I checked earlier, a package specifically designed for reconditioned PCs cost only $ 50 for a 64-bit copy.
There is no technical limitation to prevent you from using OEM software on your computer, although this software only works for a clean install, not an upgrade. In the past, Microsoft has been remarkably inconsistent in his advice to clients on the question of whether this practice is allowed. (See "is allowed to use Windows OEM on your own PC? Don't ask Microsoft. »)

Can I use windows media player to play mp3 and have the recigition speech to convert to text?
You can get on a conversion of 70% in reading a file in Windows Media Player using something like Dragon Naturally Speaking to convert. If you set the playback speed to slow in Windows Media Player to play > play speed, you will get a better result. The best option is to download the file to an audio transcription service, but which generally costs 0, 50-1, 00 per minute of audio.
