  • Impossible to change the location of backup to external hard drive

    * Original title: backup location

    I need to change the location of backup on an external hard drive (I).  When I go into Control Panel, backup and support, it seems that the location is currently (D).  To change this, I select 'change settings '.  Then, the computer opens a new window for "Set up Backup" and begins to launch.  However, whenever I try to do the answer comes back that the computer is unable to start the program because of the error (0 x 80080005) of running the server.  I don't know what to do from here.  Can anyone offer any guidance?  Thank you.

    Hi Janis,

    The probable cause of this problem could arise from the security of the software interrupt services to change backup settings.
    I suggest you follow the methods below and check if it helps:
    Method 1: Temporarily disable the antivirus on the computer running software and check if you are able to change the backup location.
    Reference: turn off the antivirus software

    Warning: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If Mode 1 has not resolved the issue try MOde 2 which follows below:

    Method 2: Put the computer in a clean boot state, and then try to change the location of backup on your external hard drive again:
    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note: After troubleshooting, see the section «How to reset the computer to start normally after a boot minimum troubleshooting»

  • Change the location of backup files saved in CS6?

    Hey all,.

    I use Photoshop CS6 and she put auto save every 10 minutes. I would like to have backup automatically but it keep save them to the desktop and then all this is a mass

    (same question because of Corel Painter) Is there a way to set a folder and make Photoshop Save there?

    Thank you.

    You specify what or readers to use as working disks in the preferences.

    In my case, this is drive G. It is time which files go.

    Photoshop does a folder with the name of PSAutorecover for the AutoSave files.

    for example

    G:\Photoshop Temp10867638828

    G:\PSAutoRecover\MyName\whatever. PSB

  • Is it possible to change the location of a backup of the LR catalog?

    I need to change the location of backup for my LR catalog, but don't consider it as an option in the settings of the catalogue or LR preferences.  Is it possible to do so without creating a new catalog?

    Set backup options as appropriate, and when you close Lightroom and the backup dialog, this is where you can change the location of the backup of the catalog file.

  • You can change the location of the automatic backup folder after creating a project on the first CC 2015?

    Trying to figure out from there is a way to change the location of the automatic backup folder after a project has already been created and the location of the automatic backup has been chosen. The reason for this is because we have an active work with a project that has been meet with an "unknown error" while he was trying to save on our server and also prevents form Auto-Save save projects. After you create a new project on the disk of the local computer and the Auto-Save in the same place, we decided later that we could like and the Auto-Save to live on two separate discs. I was wondering if there is a way to move the AutoSave folder without having to make a whole new project and copy everything on him. I searched through previous assignments, and even if current discussions focus on setting up an automatic backup location, I can't find all the topics related to the evolution of a current configuration.

    Thank you


    You just go to the project settings dialog box and change when the AutoSave file is defined.

    A couple of things about the Auto-save...

    -It waits a few seconds in action, so if you have a busy beaver editor constantly change things he could not AutoSave for quite a while...

    -automatic backup fact that both 'levels' it is wise to use Save-as to increment your project as you advance. So you can be sure that if you are on the last edit to the project AND... If corruption occurs, you have previous increments of work regardless of their deletion.


  • How can I change the location of the files? (buffers, history)

    I want to change the location of my history and my SSD to a flashdisk buffers. [Reason: to overcome the wear and back on my SSD.] How can I do this?
    Open question: what other locations of files (paths) I should change?

    You can disable the disk cache by using "Clear history of Firefox closing" to clear the Cache.

    You can check that on the topic: cache page (entry of the disk cache is missing).

    History and bookmarks are stored in the same file and cannot be separated.

    You'd have to move the complete record of the Firefox profile to this other player or use the private browsing mode.

    It's probably a good idea to regularly make backups of valuable profile in case of disk failure data.

    Flash drives also do not last forever and are also generally slower.

  • change the location of the rman oracle 8i


    I'm taking a copy of a production oracle 8i (don't ask!) database with RMAN and then restore that backup to a different server. This works well when the backup is performed to a folder G:\RMAN\ on the prod and then restored from a folder of G:\RMAN\ dev. But I would like to have the backup of the restoration of F:\RMAN\ on dev.

    I can't find a way to tell RMAN backup is in a situation of difference, the "catalog" command doesn't seem to work for me

    What are the backup commands that I use



    allocate channel t1 type disk;


    change archivelog than any overlap;

    backup format 'g:\rman\QMSLB_DB_%t_DB' (database);


    Copy current controlfile to 'g:\rman\QMSLB_DB_CF ';


    This version forum works on Win 2003 R2

    any ideas?

    Thank you


    For restores, RMAN will look ONLY in the catalog, so in your situation the controlfile.

    The allocate channel command applies only to the DO NOT backup to restore.

    Also you can not UNCATALOG a backuppiece in 8i and ADDED it to a different location.

    One way would be to share the source disk. and make a networkdrive of G to the source system.

    Also, the error message clearly indicates he's looking on the place where the files should be.

    They are there?

    As far as I KNOW, you cannot change the location of the backup in 8i items. PERIOD.

  • Change the location of the project

    Is it possible to change the location where the user draft pages are stored?

    I just ran into a situation where an end user requested to contribute to be removed and given to another user, do not think to mention that she had 16 pages of project that she has been working for a year on! Uninstall remove these projects and there seems to be no way to recover them.

    It would be safer to have projects that are stored on a network drive that is backed up regularly. Can this be achieved?


    After scouring the Windows registry, I think I have the solution. Each site, so that the user has a key has an entry in the registry; This corresponds to sites in the folder of the user Documents and Settings Local Settings\Application Data\Macromedia\Contribute 3\Sites. In this folder are subfolders called Site1, Site2, etc., who have stored locally projects and new pages. In the registry under HKEY_USERS\...\...\Software\Macromedia\Contribute 3\Sites are files called Site0, Site1 etc. Each of them has a setting of 'Local directory' you can change from C:\Documents and Settings\Settings\Application Data\Macromedia\Contribute 3\Sites\Site1\ to your favorite network location - which you can easily backup on a regular basis.

    I hope that in a next version Adobe will make cela a parameter that can be administered via the interface of Contribute 3. For us, it's the difference between using Contribute 3 and the CPS or abandonment of Contribute and looking for an alternative.


  • change the location of the log archive


    DB is
    Operating system is HP - UX 11.23

    Log_archive_dest = archivelogs/backup /.

    This site is located on a single hard drive.

    When this disc goes down, database stops. Need to change the location to another drive online.

    I have a procedure to follow

    SQL > change the start of the archive log system of ' < nouvel_emplacement >;

    Once the disc problem is resolved.

    back from the old location.

    what you guys think... any other procedure

    Note: I'm just asking questions about my practical purpose. in practice, we will put the location of the newspaper archive in the mirrored partition or archive 2 destinations.


    You're still using log_archive_dest. You are running Enterprise or Standard?
    When you run Enterprise, you must use log_archive_dest_1, log_archive_dest_2 etc.

    And you must archive log start!
    Just alter system set log_archive_dest (_) will do the trick.

  • Changing the location of the .pag &amp; .ind files

    Hi all

    Essbase environment 9.3.1
    Are there problems with changing the location of the data and Index files?
    c:\Hyperion\AnalyticServices\app\Sample1 in c:\Data egChanging

    Thank you

    Not really. There are a few considerations
    1. If you already have data, changing the location will not change when the existing data. you need to erase the data and the re - export import.
    2. you must make sure that you stop and restart the application before doing step 1, but after changing the location of the file
    3. If you have a backup routine, make sure that you change where it picks up the page and index of files to back up

  • Impossible to change the location of the screenshot

    Hi all

    I need assistance to change the default location for my screenshots. I tried all the advice I could find so far, the default terminal command 'defaults write location' does not work.

    I did the 'killall SystemUIServer' and also tried a manual reboot.

    When I use the command 'defaults read' it displays the right folder (i.e. ...Desktop/Screenhots), but when I take a screenshot it still saves on the Desktop and not in the folder.

    I tried to restore the location to it's default value, I also tried to change the location using Onyx, I checked to see if the folder has the correct rights.

    So anything else I can try other than a fresh install?

    Kind regards,


    See the ~/Library/Preferences/ file and open it, you see the change?

  • I can't change the location of the iTunes library

    I used iTunes with my Mac Mini, and all the music and video have been stored in the main hard drive. As I added a 120 GB SSD inside the Mini and installed OS X (El Capitan) in it, I want to change the default location my iTunes library in the folder iTunes, in the old disk, because I want only the OS X and applications of this SSD because its space is short. But when I go into iTunes preferences I change the location of the media file, iTunes nothing happens. In the iTunes folder, I found the following:

    A folder called Album art

    A folder called automatically added to iTunes

    Files (all grayed out):

    iTunes Library Extras.itdb

    iTunes Libraty Genius.itdb

    The iTunes Music folder

    A class (grayed) called: iTunes Music Library.xml

    A folder called Mobile Applications

    A folder called Previous iTunes Libraries

    Any help? I tried several options but I could not.

    First of all make sure that you really understand what is a library. It is not the location of the media file.  That just tells iTunes where to store any media added from there.  For most people, a library is all the contents of the iTunes folder.

    Looks like your old drive still has various parameters of authorization in this regard.  On my other computer, I used several discs and in the window of Finder read information for each player, I've marked to ignore permissions on my data drives.
