Thanks for the responses. I am only restoring one partition, C, from a clone residing on the 2nd of 3 partitions on a 1.5TB usb 2.0 drive. I finally used Rawcopy (by Roadkill) , it took about 20 hours. After the copy, C drive is now seen by Explorer, Disk Management and a few other drive and partition utilities running from a MiniXP environment as ...

You should look into BTSync. It works like dropbox, except private. Doesn't support compression Does work on a block basis instead of file basis Uses encrypted transmission Doesn't support encrypted storage, but this could be implemented with truecrypt, as it is block based, it won't transfer the entire volume every time It does automatic by the minute ...

I am not sure WHY, but I found a solution on the cygwin mailing list archive. Adding the -W argument to rsync took my transfer speed from 200kBps to 1.5MB/s.

I like your script but, if needed, you can do it directly by command line from the current directory rsync -a $(pwd) ~/backup/

Found a solution: Created a new shell script like this: current_dir=`pwd` dir_name=`basename $current_dir` rsync -a . ~/backup/$dir_name and when executing this it will create a new directory at the destination and copy current folder contents.

i think use windows 7 to back up have some limitations. Before the operating system of Windows 7, such as, Windows XP, Vista, as well as Server 2003, the system and boot partitions have been combined together. That is to say, boot partition is system partition; system partition is boot partition. In this case, it only requires to backup one partition during ...

The tricky thing about moving a Time Machine backup from a local hard drive to a remote server (or vice-versa) is that Time Machine uses a native HFS+ partition directly for local backups, but when backing up to a server over AFP, it creates a "sparsebundle" disk image. You can use Disk Utility to make a sparsebundle image of an HFS+ partition, and then put ...

Use the built-in robocopy command line tool. It preserves filestamps so anything copied to another medium will retain the original date attributes. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145.aspx

I would recommend a tool called FastCopy, which maintains file attributes including date and modified, and also copies using a buffer, so it's fairly quick. http://download.cnet.com/FastCopy/3000-2248_4-10905019.html I've used that for a while now for large business copies, which require all the information to be exactly mirrored on another storage point.

Open any excel file and choose the "save as" option. When you are in the save as window, below the "File name" and "Save As Type" options, there is an option that reads "Tools" with a small drop down arrow next to it. Click on this drop down arrow and then from the dropdown list, choose "General Options". In the window that pops up next, un-check the box ...

Since you are already re-installing Windows a lot, lets make sure, have enough space available the next time you do it. First of all: Take a backup of your data. Not just on your system partition, but also on your remaining paritions, if you have any. In this explanation, I am assuming you have a hard drive with 500GB of space. Your system volume is C with ...

your problem is not a big deal, it is recommend you to choice a free professional backup software: AOMEI Backupper,which recognize any OS and complete full backup,incremental backup and differential backup perfectly.

You have so many possibilities... and this number will grow with time. rsync and tar are two consolidated old style ways to do backup. You can do remotely your tar file(s), and backup it (them) locally. You can do even an incremental backup. Moreover and more cosy, it exists a wide number of GUI based on them and on SSH. Some opensources too. You can ...

It might depend on the software that was used to create it. If it was, in fact, Microsoft Backup that was used, then you should be able to recover with Windows 8 (assuming you have tape drive drivers for Windows 8). Through Windows 8, the Backup utility has changed, but it is backward compatible. Good luck.

tl;dr Try the /FFT switch to handle small timestamp differences. I was having the same issue as you: files were being copied by robocopy even though they were unchanged between the source and destination. The other posted answer is helpful, but even running robocopy with /L and /v just kind of tells you what you already know (that robocopy thinks the ...

According to the manual, you should be able to specify a combination of state and action with the -u switch to precisely control in what cases you want the archive to be updated: As an example demonstrates, 7z u c:\1\exist.7z -up0q3x2z0!c:\1\update.7z * -ms=off creates a new archive update.7z and writes to this archive all files from the current directory ...

It depends if its a single partition or a few. I'm rather find of kpartx for actual raw images with more than one drive kpartx -a -v foo.raw load up the .raw file, then you can mount the /dev/mapper devices as if they were normal drives. There's a pretty nice, more complete set of examples on the nfolampblog If its a single drive joejoe21b's answer should ...

Source How to Stop a Windows Backup in Progress You’re asked to confirm that you want to stop the backup after you click the Stop Backup button. There’s nothing wrong with stopping a backup; it doesn’t destroy any data that’s already on the backup hard drive. Stopping the backup does, however, prevent the backup program from making copies of all ...

Im surprized nobody mentioned it already but I would try typing " ifconfig " at the command prompt to find out the computers IP address and put that into the browser of another computer and see if I could login that way

It is possible, but not necessarily easy. You could use /Append-Image to capture all partitions to one WIM file and then deploy each partition with DISM from that WIM file on the other side. It still isn’t a sector-based image or a disk level image, DISM is a volume imaging tool that uses WIM file-based imaging. Another alternative is that you could ...

First make sure X server is installed - if startx command is not found, it probably isn't. In that case install it with: sudo apt-get install xorg openbox Replace openbox with the windows manager of your choice. You may also want to install xauth and ubuntu-desktop, but I'm not an expert in Ubuntu in particular. Sidenote: I assume that this server is ...

shadowfile.el would do it for you. Unfortunately, it still lives in the ange-ftp world. Porting it to understand Tramp is on my todo list, but I haven't done yet.

I am not familiar with emacs, but I can think of several solutions: 1) Work in a NAS folder that is actually a file system that is not on the machine you are running to begin with, but it is rather an NFS of CIFS share. Not sure how well will this work given your VM hoses up 2) Create a custom macro that will save the file locally and then invoke an scp ...

A couple of factors affect the speed of the backup. USB speed, hard drive speed, software settings in the backup software, and the speed of computer being used to interface with the drive. Backup software is typically slower due to the nature of what it's doing. Backing up files may take a long time depending on how many you have and where they're being ...

The way I do this is to use a virtual machine (such as Hyper-V or VMWare). There are many virtual machine (VM) solutions that are available free for personal use. Once you have the VM solution installed on your local machine, then you install the OS on top of this. Then the whole installation becomes just another file that you can move and backup to your ...

If you still are having issues try a newer iso or try either of the following: 1) fedup --network --ver 21 --productimg (optionally add 'setenforce=1') 2) launch the installer with 'setenforce=1' ## in both cases DON'T use the ' marks they are merely for comand isolation purposes...

My suggestion is use the Cobian Backup Software, it's free and can backup all data automatically to a remote FTP. I use it to backup servers and desktop computers, and works fine. Have a lot of options.

I think that I have found the solution. I have been running the ndb_restore via a script which I have been executing through a SSH connection as I do not currently have physical access to the servers. As such, when the SSH session dies, ndb_restore received a SIGHUP. I believe that this is what has been causing the process to stop without any notice or log ...

I'm not sure about bringing the catalog file in sync but if possible try using robocopy to copy the old backups from the 1TB drive to the 3TB drive again. If I'm not mistake either must be ran as administrator. For robocopy: robocopy 1TB\sourcedir 3TB\destdir /copyall /E This will copy all the files from the old hdd to the new one and keep all the ...

If you use Linux, you could try dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/null without mounting the card, where sdX is your SD card. This should just read the card itself without copying any actual data (/dev/null is a void device, a black hole of some sort), hence "refreshing" the bits inside the cells.

Assuming that you're not using the /V switch on the venerable ol' "copy" command, about the best thing to do would be to grab a tool that could compute a hash or checksum on the source file, and compute the same hash on the copied file. If they match, the files are true duplicates. Microsoft released an unsupported tool that does precisely this many moons ...

If you have a disk large enough to handle such an image, it will also be large enough for you to install a Linux-based system onto. In which case, I'd suggest you simply swap disks and use the "other" to try out a Linux-based distribution. If you decide you want to revert you can just swap back the disks.
