Nightmare. Best to use a cloud based service now if you ask me. Much easier and no need to burn disks to leave round someone else's house

No sorry, what I meant was that it was a good and easy way to back up your data in future.

What happened any way? Is it definately your hard disk that has failed or just Windows? If its just Windows it should be possible to recover your data

Yes computers are rubbish

Post  Vega-Gordon on Tue May 08, 2012 9:33 am

Yes a similar thing happened to me about 3 months back. I though I was safe as I had 2 x 1Tb internal drives in RAID, however.......

Somehow the RAID got switched off and the two discs got out of sync. I didn't lose everything, but some stuff went AWOL and I had a lot of fiddling about to sort it out.

Maplins do a 2Tb external for £99, must get one pronto. of course that doesn't cover house fires. Evil or Very Mad

Exactly which is why a cloud based solution is best, at least for anthing you can't replace, photos of your kids being born and leaving home etc

Small amounts of data, sure. Then again, why not store photos in photo bucket, flikr, snappish, etc anyway? (As long as they do backups)

What you going to do about all those movies you downloaded? :-)

This is my expertise area. The point of backup is to restore... and you need to think about how quickly you want the data back.

i kept on getting a error message
Monitor.exe. application error
the instruction at 0x0bc34f20 referenced memory at 0x0bc34f20 could not be read

i run disc scan and it solved it, but only untill i restarted the machine again, so run disc scan and ticked the box check and fix whatever.
it was taking a absolute age to do, and i was on my dinner hour from work, so i turned it off at the plug Embarassed affraid clown

i was later told i should have just put the windows disc in and it might have fixed it Rolling Eyes

Sounds like a windows issue then. If you have not already over written the disk you could slap another hard drive in, install another instance of windows on that and then read your data from your original hard disk

I don't down load films, as have kids I struggle to find time to work on my scooters let alone relax watching telly Wink
Also once you have seen a film why watch it again, you know the end.
Anyway you can download it again.
Fair enough you can upload pictures to flick r etc but what about documents like CVs you then have to have a separate back up for things like which to me is messy.

In terms of restore you just sync the lot back to your pc. Easy peasy lemon squeasy

You didn't mention your preferred solution ?
