If my computer falls down can I use a backup disk to retrieve


The best way to start is in safe mode and if it does not progress to a Windows repair disk.

You haven't said which OS has your laptop or which model is it. Create a Windows for Windows 7 or Vista repair disc, depending on which is installed.

Always start by trying to restore the operating system to perceive before even to consider so final option as a revaluation. The reasoning behind my statement is simple. An repair is non-destructive. An recovery is destructive and exterminates all what you had on your hard drive and start from scratch with no programs installed.

    they do it for a nominal cost of $

    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

  • Computer bluescreens and falls down, can't use safe mode or the repair of the system

    Original title: does not work for me repair system
    always do, the blue screen

    Hello, 55adan

    Since you are not able to access Safe Mode or perform a system repair, you will need to use your system recovery discs or Windows installation disc to reinstall Windows.


    Please note that if you use a recovery disk, the contents of hard disks is cleared if you need to connect the drive to a working computer down all the files you need.

    If you have a Windows install disk, if you choose that a custom installation and DO NOT format the drive, your old files must all be placed in the folder C:\Windows.old. To protect against data loss, it is always recommended to recover all the data you want the drive first well.

  • I can't use my backup disks after a recovery

    My hard drive has begun to send me error messages.  I found myself using my recovery disks.  During this process, that I was urged to make a backup of records of information I would rather not lose (photos, games, etc.).  I did it.  After recovering, I tried to load the backup disks.  The first disk done to restore a file shortcut on my desktop.  But it does not load the files on the disk and asks me almost immediately to disk #2.  It will not either charge.  Try to get the computer to read the discs through the control panel > system maintenance > backup > restore files, I get a message that there is no back ups available on this computer.   How can I get my info on these discs?

  • When doing a full backup computer falls down and must be closed


    When doing a full backup of the computer falls down and must be closed using the power switch, it is very good when you make a partial backup.
    I'm trying to backup to an external hard drive via a usb connection.

    The hard drive is formatted in NTFS
    Someone has any ideas


    I will try to resume that you issue.
    The HARD disk has several partitions (I guess 2 partitions)
    The backup procedure works fine if you safe data only from single partition, but it crashes if you try to create a backup of all partitions of set. Am I wrong?

    My first question; What backup utility do you use?
    Are you sure that this backup tool supports the backup of the two partitions at the same time?

    I put t know if it will help but a similar problem happened to me.
    I've used Norton ghost and I wasn't able to create a backup of a partition.

    The procedure began, but after several minutes, the screen goes white and the notebook frisottés.
    I ran the scandisk, chkdsk and I defragment the whole HARD drive.

    This helped!

  • Dear Sir/Madam I am writing about the suite Adobe Creative License peripheral non-profit in January of this year, we bought. It's been almost four months and we still have to successfully download the software on the computer, so we can really use it.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I write about more Adobe non-profit instrument allowed Creative, we bought in January this year. It's been almost four months and we still have to successfully download the software on the computer, so we can really use it. It is completely UN acceptable. Despite many attempts and chat sessions with several of your support staff. We lost hours and hours of our precious time trying to get a working to our computer installation. The computer is a newer version than MacBook Pro bought new in January 2015. It's a sad testament to the stability of your SW if you can't creative SW runs on a Mac. I am confused with what I can do about it. Your Tech support staff clearly didn't have the knowledge to fix and the SW is defective and unusable. Is the problem of the license of the device? We can get this as another form. The last chat with one of our staff asked an email address to at least try to get additional contacts for help, but technology chat session refused to give their address. Four different Tech tried different solutions without success. What to do next? Please consult the transcript of what has past and let us know how to proceed. We are a non-profit organization. Our time and money is valuable to us. We want the use of the software that we paid for. We need a solution to this.

  • Can I use the same disk to install Windows in 2 devices


    I was wondering earlier this year I bought Windows 8 for my laptop game. And now I'm upgrading to a desktop PC Windows games with windows 7, can I use the software disks even if I connect to my Microsoft account. In other words I re can I use the disks if they are associated with the same account?

    No, you can't, 1 license, 1 computer.

    The key that can be used with 32-bit or 64-bit of Windows 8 is exclusively for 1 disc. You cannot use install both. 1 license, 1 installation, so choose wisely. If you want to install Windows 8 32-bit or 64-bit on another partition or another computer, you must purchase an additional license.



    If you comply with these license terms, you have the rights below for each license you acquire.


    a. software. The software includes operating system software. This software does not include Windows Live services. Windows

    Live is a service available from Microsoft under a separate agreement.

    b. license model. The software is licensed on a basic computer copy. A computer is a physical hardware system with internal storage capable of running the software. A hardware partition or blade is considered be a separate computer.


    a. one copy per computer. You can install one copy of the software on a single computer. This computer is "licensed computer.

    b. a computer license. You can use the software on up to two processors of the computer under license at some point. Except as provided in these license terms, you cannot use the software on any other computer.

    c. number of users. Except as provided in these license terms, only one user may use the software at a time.

  • Can I use the same disk of software on several computers?

    I installed Windows Vista on a second computer.  The disc was used to install on another computer.  On the second computer, from time to time, the screen becomes unstable and begins to try to post the same request twice on the screen in overlap and becomes uneven, showing part of the two, flashing and showing things on the spot.  After that, it becomes impossible to use the application without end the session, or restart the computer.  This usually occurs after the computer wakes from sleep.  He has also taken over when a box saying that the computer key is already in use.  Let me say only that a new Apple computer.  What is my problem?

    The license of Vista OEM is related to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop

    If a license of Vista at retail, you can transfer it to another computer/laptop.
    But it can only be installed on one computer at a time.

    A single license is a single Installation.

    See you soon.

  • How can I recover my backup disks backup after a computer crash? My HP laptop is a CMS (Windows7)

    So, recently, I had to "reset" my computer to its factory settings and I for her backup disks but when I put them in, the only options that appears is 'open folder to view files '. When I open the folder, there is another folder called "backup files", when I opened that there are files that say 0.wim, 1.wim, 2.wim, (or something similar when same) and so on. I click on and it just say "choose the program you want to use to open this file" or "Browse programs." You can also choose to watch online for a program and I did and I downloaded one that he said would work (7 - Zip). I also learned what a WIM file. I have very important documents, photos and music on my backup DVD. If anyone would know how to recover my backup on my computer, please let me know and if there are questions about the problem at hand, ask and I will do my best to respond. Thank you for your help!

    On one of the drives, probably the first one, there was also a file with the .exe extension. Restore.exe or Recover.exe. If you find it double click to run it and it will extract the aDossier on the laptop .wim files.

    It is to be expected.

    Creative Suite serial numbers are specific platform: Windows only or Mac only. You cannot use a serial number of Windows on a Mac.

    You have two options:

    1. Pay for upgrade to Mac CS6 (you will need to call Adobe to buy since Adobe really does not want to sell you outdated software such as CS6)
