Amazon's official command line interface worked well for me. It can sync from local to an S3 bucket, and also sync from an S3 bucket back to local files. 1) install Amazon's command line interface, from https://aws.amazon.com/cli/ 2) from a shell, export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=(access key here) export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=(secret key here) export ...

You changed your question in the comments . You wrote Alright thank you I've test it with few test files and folder and it seems to be working and my question is will this ever make any sort of changes to the source ? my options used are " /z /np /xo /e " – The answer is no. As long as the version of robocopy isn't changed and you don't change syntax it ...

The biggest problem with your backup strategy is that the backup has to be performed manually. If for some reason someone neglect to make backups for a few days, and they get hit by ransomware, the backup throws them back a few days. This can be unacceptable. In worst case, they can completely forgot to do backups or decide that doing a backup is a big ...

The route I personally take is to dump the list of files using list-current-files, as you suggested, but then use grep instead of diff to see the differences. An example of such is below:- duplicity list-current-files --time now "${DEST}" > /tmp/today duplicity list-current-files --time 1D "${DEST}" > /tmp/yesterday grep -Fxvf /tmp/{today,yesterday} ...

In modern Windows', there is also the File History feature. It will use the backup drive, and create a sort of a "time machine" - previous versions of files on your computer. It's automatic, so once you set it up, even if you delete or change a file, you can roll back to a previous version. Here is a how to on setting up File History backup on external ...

I would imagine they are using the OEM license. This is automatically licensed using SLP so your copies of Windows are showing up as activated. The SLP key is not tied to the COA Sticker, that sticker only shows you have a license if you return the box to the OEM for repair / re-installation. The SLP key is a Generic Key so will show the same on all boxes ...

What I would do in your case would be to click on "Save the machine state" in VirtualBox and then simply copy the whole VM folder to your backup drive. This way, when your laptop is returned to you with Windows 10, you can simply copy the VM folder back again to your VirtualBox VMs folder and then click on the yourVMName.vbox file to import the VM back into ...

This is not possible. Yes, you can save the state of the VM to disk and resume it later, but the upgrade to windows 10 will break it. I speak out of experience. Technically speaking it should be possible to save and resume, but pratically I found out that it won't.

It is possible to get the key from a Linux live disk (e.g. a Ubuntu Live DVD ), or any linux system that has access to the computer's drive (booted from usb, dual booted etc) - this may also be possible from another windows system without third party apps (example). Then you can get the licence by: Get a registry reading/editing tool. I used chntpw, it is ...

Just image the whole drive - it'll backup everything, and most decent imaging software should let you do some flavour of compression. You can then mount the drive directly and get files off. There's a lot of different options but disk2vhd seems like the 'simplest' option since modern versions of windows support VHD natively. The image would take the space ...

Evidently Windows 10 deletes the following 2 hidden folders after 30 days, and they are needed to roll it back while in Windows 10. You need more than the windows.old folder $Windows.~WS $Windows.~BT Source I am sure there is a manual way to do as there was with W7, but I have not experimented or found a HowTo article so far.

The COPY command dumps out the data of one table to the console. You can then save this data locally. Example: COPY country TO STDOUT Reference COPY -- copy data between a file and a table

it would be more helpful if you post one snapshot of your Disk Management. We need to whether you have 5 hard drives in one disk or have 5 disks separately with each drive on. I know the latter is less possible but post one in case we get the environment. If all 5 drives are on one disk, one possible way is backup C drive and restore to S drive after you ...

I have been stuggling with this same bug a long time and finally found something that seems to work somehow. See this link and the post by DAdananski on March 13, 2016. There is more valuable info there also. Copy paste of the most important part: You cannot (AFAIK) avoid including libraries in the first place - going through the dodgy ...

It corrupts your data. Depending on the I/O error encountered, and blocksize used (larger than physical sector size?), the input and output addresses do not actually stay in sync but end up at the wrong offsets, which makes the copy useless for filesystem images and other things where offsets matter. A lot of places recommend using conv=noerror,sync (or ...

I adapted the script posted by apple16 above to run in Python 3 and enhanced it a bit. Using a combination of selectively excluding folders from File History and this script to look at possible issues I narrowed down my problem to two files with nearly identical names in the same directory. Both files had the word Espanol in the filename with a tilde over ...

As far as I am concerned, it will backup not copy files to the selective drive. You can set up backup time in Backup and Restore window. It will make kind of full backup every time, which may fulfill your selective drive quickly. You can manually delete these old backups by clicking Manage space. As for the question which file has been backed up and which ...

Short answer: run fixgz http://www.gzip.org/fixgz.zip on compressed dump. fixgz.exe bad.gz fixed.gz Long answer: So if you used pg_dump with --compresss or -Z without specifying custom format option (-Fc) what you actually get is a compressed file in ASCII mode instead of BINARY mode. Quoting from http://www.gzip.org/#faq1 If you have transferred a ...

1) Disks are highly unpredictable. Some disks could go for years, I've got ordinary desktop disks running since 2009 and their still good today. I also got this high performance disks and it just died (less than a year of work). So if your data is highly valuable, if you must store them in your own disks, I suggest you make multiple copies on separate disks. ...

I need to buy a hard drive to store monthly backups of my in-home lab. Why would anyone do that on A drive? Any professional setup includes multiple backups ON SEPARATE MEDIA. Get that part. One month per hard disc (if you want to go the hard disc route). Bad things happen - and you do not want to loose all backups just because something bad happened. ...

I have not found any ready-made solution as of today (2016-05-06), but solved the problem for my purposes, including Copy-on-Write handling. The steps to "clone" /source to /target are: Get a list of subvolumes ordered by ogen: btrfs subvolumes list -qu --sort ogen /source. Sorting is probably enough to guarantee that snapshots or subvolumes which depend ...

The file that you have created is a gzipped plain-text file. To restore that, use something like zcat db.dump | psql ... If you want a non-plain-text dump, you should use the option -Fc when running pg_dump.
