Preferred Solution: tomtom go 700 harddrive backup?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Folks,

Running W7/64. I've tried to create a system backup to my D drive: error message states that I cannot create an image to a drive which Windows boots from or is installed on.

Not good.

My computer has an SSD ,the C drive, and a spinner, the D drive.

When I installed Windows, I only had the C drive installed. The D drive was not physically connected.

Now, the D drive was recycled from another use. It +had+ been a C drive (possibly for this very machine). I did a full format on it, and ensured it was not hooked up during the SSD install. (I thought that would erase windows OS files.) Somehow, Windows on D drive won't die!

My thought is that I need to perform a repair install. I can do that...and I will. I'll make sure D drive is physically disconnected. Again. Obviously, my attempt to erase any and all previously used data on the D drive failed. (At least, that's my thought.)

How do I remove any OS remnants on the D drive? Yeah, I've got stuff on it, but I can create a Macrium backup and restore them, if need be.

I've included Drive Manager image of it as well as what Macrium sees. (I've got some of the SSD unallocated for overprovisioning.)

Thanks,
Ken

Answer:Cannot create a backup image on my backup harddrive?

Ok mate my first thought is I would clean the D: drive using DISKPART - clean or clean all depends on how thorough you want to be a simple clean would in my mind be enough.
Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
then format it.

My other thought is how old is that spinner??

Edit I meant to say back up the data first eh?

I have a current settup with WinXP, in which my main HD is a SATA. I want to use an old IDE HD for back-up. The opticals on a secondary IDE cable. When I put the IDE HD on a primary, the computer will stop on boot just primary to going to the DATA (After CD and floppy). The Bios appears to find the HD and I can access it using a DOS boot floppy.

According to Western Digital, there does not need to need a jumper.

I think that maybe there should be.

Hi,     I am in the market for a backup harddrive.  I had a couple of questions.  First I will explain, I use my computer for mostly personal and school, I have a decent amount of word documents, music, and pictures.  I have a 3 year old Dell Inspiron 5150 Laptop with Windows XP.  I wanted to know1)  For my uses, is an external harddrive really necessary?-Is this something I should have or is it really not a big deal for my purposes?2)  If it would be of particular benefit, I'd like to know, which brand, model could you recommend?  I do have a restricted budget.-Would this do?Link Edit3)  What kinds of features should I pay attention to or are of big importance?4) How much GB do I need?-Is 320 ample?Thanks.

Answer:Purchasing A Backup Harddrive

Hard to say if you need 320gb, generally your backup hdd need not be any larger than the internal one unless that's running out of space and will be replaced soon.  (Some cloning programs will clone to a smaller hdd provided that the smaller one can contain all the files on the source partitions)If you are considering cloning your internal hdd to your backup hdd so that you can boot from the backup, ensure that booting from a usb device is supported in your system.The price shown on the link you posted is certainly very attractive, pity they're out of stock!Burning data files to a cd or dvd is the cheapest form of reasonably secure backup IMHO.Good luck

I'm assuming you are using the ubcd4win that takes ou to the ubcd4win desktop not just tools. If so, you need to go to the start button and then system and then hwpnp and then click on install usb devices. With my flash drive in it then picks it up. You could also force install devices there and then it may pick up the external hd. I'm not sure that it is going to pick up and external hd through a usb port.

Ok so i have three harddrives, lets call them XP, 7old, and 7new. So the 7old harddrive's OS,windows7, wasn't working (i have tried so much things to try to make it work and now i have given up). Because of this i am now planning on getting a new harddrive to do a clean install of windows 7, but then i want to ask if there is a way to restore/copy the applications/files i have in the 7old harddrive, to my new harddrive. (I cannot login to the 7old harddrive's os, but i can access the harddrive files from my xp harddrive). So is there a way to do a clean install then have my old files/applications transferred, since i cant really clone my old harddrive since the os wasn't working. Any suggesstions?

Dad and I both want to backup to a 500gb Maxtor External Harddrive.
We have partitioned the harddrive into two. One partition for each of us.
We would like to do a full clone of each of our harddrivesand place them oon the harddrive. WE want the clone that goes on the harddrive ,to be useful(not in some random compressed format that we can't get to).

Also. My laptop has a wireless internet connection that connects to a router connected to the internet. The router also connects to dads computer which has the external harddrive.
Is there a way to backup my harddrive using the criteria above via our wirelesss connection.

I have lost my laptop once and I don't want it to happen again.
Please tell me if you know of a simple way to go about this.

Is it possible to make a full clone of the harddrive that i wouldn't have to clone the whole harddrive each time. ( if you know what i mean) So it just updates the files each time.

Answer:How to Backup to External Harddrive.

There are two ways of doing this, manually by copying the files required or try using cobian backup, the link is in the free software list.

I would not recommend backing up via wireless as this will take a long time.

Are there any good free versions? Can they do a complete back and transfer to a new harddrive (to replace the old one) or a bigger hd to be used as the new primary hd for my pc?

Answer:Harddrive cloneing & Backup software?

First link in my signature refers.

You burn the free software into a CD and so the health of the orginal operating system is immaterial.

The target or the clone is a 100% mirror image of the orginal and boots exactly like the source disk. You should remove the source disk when using the clone though as two sets of identical system files may cause a MS Windoze to do funny things..

It will need to backup to a network share.

If anyone can suggest any software that I can buy or use that would be great.

I've got Win'98se with a 6.4 gig Fujitsu harddrive that's less than a year old. I started having scandisk run every re-boot so I did a thorough scan. The scan reported sector 40, 312, and 313 were bad. It said:

"Scan disk can no longer read from Sector 40 of this drive's file allocation table. Scandisk cannot repair this error because this part of the system cannot be relocated to another section of your disk. You may need to replace this disk."

It also returned the same message for Sector 312 and 313, yet the final report said that there were 0 bytes in bad sectors. I assume that's because it couldn't read the Sectors to see if there was information there.

The question is twofold:
1) I guess this means the drive must be replaced (2 months left in the warranty!) am I correct? and
2) Is there an easy and or inexpensive way to copy the entire drive to a new one?

The drive is partitioned into 2.1gig partitions and i really want to keep the data without having to start fresh with a replacement drive (I'll have to ship the drive away and I expect I'll get a new one instead)?

I'm just bought a new 8.4 gig harddrive, so I want to transfer the data without necessarily starting from scratch.

HELP, PLEASE HELP.

with all that said, how exactly do i do that? i tried putting the 40gb in but either my computer wont boot (no message, the screen never changes from all black) or it boots from the 40gb harddrive and doesnt recognize the 250gb.
 

Answer:harddrive reformatting/backup data

Welcome to TSG!
It's possible that the 250 gig HDD has been jumpered to standalone which is not (edit: not always) the same as Master. You need to set both drives' jumpers. The 40 GB to slave, and 250 GB to Master.

If the 250 GB HDD is SATA, then it should be recognized no matter what IDE drives are present... In this case I would go into BIOS and check if they are recognized OK, and then check boot order. Besides boot order of different device types (floppy, CD, HDD, etc.) in some BIOS-es there's an option for setting boot priority of HDDs present in the system.

Hi,

I have the following hard disks:

500 GB:
|- 250 GB Vista (old)
|- 250 GB contains a PC-Complete backup of the above partition

1000 GB:
|- 700 GB Linux
|- 001 GB Linux
|- 003 GB Linux
|- 300 GB Empty
|- 003 GB Linux Swap

I now want to restore the Vista PC-Complete backup to the "Empty" 300 GB partition of the 1000 GB disk, so that I no longer need the 500 GB disk,
but the tutorials I've found regarding Windows Recovery are not detailed enough to answer the following questions:

1. Will the recovery of the Vista-DVD keep my other partitions (those labeled "Linux" above) intact?
2. The new partition (labeled "Empty") is a logical partition, the old Vista partition of the 500 GB disk was a primary. Will Vista be able to boot from the logical partition (preferably via Grub)?
3. Will I be able to use the whole 300 GB of the "Empty" partition afterwards or will Vista directly mirror the contents of the old partition so that I only have 250 GB available?

Thanks in advance for your answers

This is probably a really stupid question, and I apologize upfront if this has been ask before and or for the stupidity of the question.
But I recently purchased a new hard drive, and to this point have been utilizing Macrium only for backup images.

What I'm trying to do is copy a working image of my old hard drive including the OS Xp, to the new hard drive, but the pc won't boot with the copy installed on the new hard drive!

Does the new hard drive have to first have windows xp OS loaded before applying the image?

Thanks for any advise!

Answer:Load Backup Image to New Harddrive With Macrium

If you're just changing the hard drive, it goes like this.
Make an image to a non-system partition of the old drive, or another drive, but not to the new drive, unless it's on to a non-system partition.
Really have to know how your partitions are set up to give exact advice.
You might have a system reserved partition. I can't advise on that.
Make sure you have burned a Macrium recovery CD.
Connect your new drive. I would put this on the first controller slot, so it will be disk 0.
Make sure your old drive is connected. I would move this to the drive 1 controller slot.
Change boot sequence in BIOS so you boot with the Macrium CD.
Restore the image to the new drive. Make sure you know what partition is what.
I don't know the Macrium restore options, but the restored partition on the new drive should be marked as active, system.
Change boot sequence to the new drive.
Should boot to the new drive like it did with the old drive.
If you have more questions, ask. But provide more detail.
Plenty of guys here know this up and down.
You didn't get a quick response because you didn't give enough detail, and you mentioned XP in a confusing way.

Folks,

I've got a Samsung spinpoint 1 Tb drive. It was a backup drive in a Vista build. I used Macrium to clone my Vista C drive to the Samsung. Then, I removed it.

Next, I built a new machine, a W7/64. THAT build uses an SSD for the operating system, "C", and a Western Digital hard drive (Black, 1 Tb) as the data drive, "D".

Once that machine was up and running, I decided to use the old Samsung drive as a backup. I physically installed it, Sata cable, and it is identified in windows as "E". Next, I tried using the Disk Management, Properties, Tools to run check. The window opens, then it immediately closes.

hmmm, thought I. Perhaps a remnant of the Vista OS was doing something. I then opened Disk Management, unmounted the drive, and performed a complete, long, reformat.

I restarted.

I tried using the properties, tools, check now window again. Still, that window will not check it. The progress bar never flashes. All that happens is about 1 second after I click "OK", the window closes. No messages.

I opened an elevated command prompt and tried "chkdsk e:" It came back with "The type of file system is NTFS." A pause, "Errors found. CHKDSK cannot continue in read-only mode."

I've searched a LOT of the internet on this. The drive has just under 9,000 hours on it. It passes every Samsung test I could throw at it from Samsung's support website.

I wonder if anyone could please give me some advice.I work in a small office environment (of around 8 employees) and our tape drive backup system has recently reached maximum capacity.We have our server (windows server 2003 small business edition) sitting in the building opposite which stores all our network files and is backed up daily via a grandfather, father, son tape rotation system (I keep the tapes in my office to ensure offsite backup).I am thinking of getting a networkable external harddrive and am wondering if this is the best solution and if so, which one to get.I was thinking that I could plug it into one of the ethernet ports in our office and schedule a daily backup of the server, to run overnight. I can't connect it directly to the server because we need to have 'offsite' backup for insurance purposes.Is this the best solution? What drives would you recommend (I think we'll need around 1TB to cope with expanding data storage needs)? I've looked at the 'Western Digital My Book' as an option, but all our machines run Windows (XP) OS's so I don't need Mac compatibility.Many thanks

Hi,

For some reason, system image backup is no longer allowing me to choose a hard drive for the destination of a system image backup. Space isn't the issue, as the drive I want to back up to has more than enough space for my C: drive. There is already an image stored on the drive, but I'm reluctant to delete it until I know I can do a new one successfully.

Anyone else had this issue?

Answer:system image backup - no harddrive option?

Just to clarify, the harddrive option is there but no drives are listed and so it defaults to the back up to DVD option. If I refresh the list of harddrives, the list remains empty and it reselects the DVD option.

Buying a new desktop computer. So I literally simply want to copy my entire hard drive to an external hard drive. All the files on my HD are about 30 GB transferring to a new external with 1 TB of space. Nothing on it yet. What's the quickest, simplest way to do this? This way I know I have every single file from my computer stored without missing anything.

This way on new desktop I have all my settings/bookmarks, etc. for browsers, all files saved.....

Doesn't need to be bootable from the external, just trying to make a copy so i know i have everything. What would you guys use for this? Thanks.

Answer:Simplest way to backup entire harddrive to an external

Just copy and paste them. Use guides not only available here but on other sites as well to export your bookmarks so you can just import them. For the rest of your personal files just move them to the drive. Sicne making a direct image wont do you any good. This is going to be your best bet. Use something like SyncToy.

Hello, I have a Linux (ubuntu) machine connected to a Linksys G router (WRT54G2) via ethernet. My main PC, a Winodws XP laptop, also communicates through the linksys router (via wifi). I want to connect an external drive directly to the Linksys wireless G and be able to use *both machines (Linux and XP) to access the external drive and do backups; is this possible?

Most inexpensive external drives come with USB, not ethernet connections; the wifi has Ethernet connections. I am new too both backup devices and Linux and am on a budget.

Contact the Autoroute support. TomTom probably wont help you since it is working with their application. Autoroute should be glad to help since you have a verified working TomTom.

That would probably be the fastest route to fixing the issue rather than a few of us guessing at the options and preferences of the Autoroute program. Unless someone else here has a TomTom and Autoroute.

My sister-in-law came to stay the other day and dragged my wife off junketing. There was some debate as to finding their intended destination. My sister-in-law is a midwife and, even though she came by train, arrived with her TomTom in her reticule. "No worries" she said, "got a fag lighter in your car?" and off they sped with TomTom doing its stuff.

Wife much impressed!

Wife has 60th birthday looming.

Personally I have always been, still am and doubtless will remain puzzled by people's inability to use and remember maps. Probably a cajones thing. Anyway, what the wife of 37 years duration wants the wife gets. Question is which one?

Having done a bit of browsing on the subject the general view SEEMS to be that Garmin is better than TomTom. What do you MajorGeek loungers feel?

The desiderata are:

1. Absolutely NO adverts. If adverts are unavoidable the deal is off and the wife gets a new set of saucepans (or something).

2. It will almost certainly ONLY get used in the UK.

3. 4Ĺ" or 5" screen.

4. Free maps for life would be handy if such a deal exists.

5. It does not need to do anything else! such as dock with iphone, emit cricket scores, make coffee...

From the plethora of makes and models which would you recommend? It would be of further interest if you could state the basis of any suggestion - i.e. do you own the one recommended? have you used it? have you seen it in use? do you sell it? or make it?

Answer:TomTom or Garmin GPS for a car?

I've never used a TomTom, but Garmins are great. They are so far and above better than car GPS systems (and we have 3 different car makes with them).

I'm not sure why there would be advertising as I've never experienced that.

I'd go on their site: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=134 Check the features you want and find one and then shop around and look at reviews.

But my vote is Garmin.

Question: TomTom question.

I was given a new TomTom some three months ago. I have used it without much of a problem only some of the details on the maps are not as up to date as I would wish.I went to have proper look at the instructions today, yes I know I should have done so when I first had the device, but it is too late now hence the problem. I now find that when I connect the TomTom to my computer there is a registration code that comes in the box that I should have used within the first 30 days after the devise was bought.The code is now out of date so I am not sure if I am actually getting the latest map updates. Does anyone have an answer to this? Perhaps somewhere else where a working code can be found or some way of working round the problem.Or does it really matter all that much anyway as many people I have spoken to say that they never updated their TomTom via their computer anyway.

Answer:TomTom question.

Normally you have to pay for updated maps which is when the registration code comes in to play.However, if you purchase any new maps and they will not run due to the registration code, I'm sure a quick e-mail to TomTom customer service would solve everything since you are in possession of the code.RegardsRoss

Question: TomTom One Voice?

I tried it out last night for the first time and everything is fine except, I cannot figure out how to get the "voice" to operate. When I press "Test" nothing happens. I am inclined to think it's something I am missing in the instructions but just can't find it. ..Bingalau..

Hi All,

I'm hoping someone on here will be able to help me with an issue I am having with the latest TomTom app 'MyDrive' which is for Windows (Desktop based).

The TomTom is a GO 40 and due to it having a web-based OS it shows up as a Network Device rather than a Mass Storage Device when connecting to the laptop therefore it shows as a 'Local Area Connection'.

Now I have been having issues that when I launch the MyDrive app everything is fine and logs me in and recognises the GO 40 but then after 2-3mins it blocks my Wi-Fi so that I cannot get any internet via Internet Explorer nor Firefox now if I use a Wired Connection I have no issues but this defeats the object of having a Wireless Laptop.

So I called the Customer Service line and they could not help and told me that the application MyDrive Connect does not alter any Wi-Fi Internet settings so I am really stumped.

After much searching around and testing I've come to a dead end here is what I have tested.......

I have used a neighbours laptop (W8.1) and their Wi-Fi and installed MyDrive Connect, launched the app connected the GO 40 and no issues with accessing the internet via Internet Explorer nor Firefox and still going strong after 10 minutes.

I then tried my laptop on my neighbours Wi-Fi and I get the same issues as before....after 2-3mins of launching the MyDrive Connect app I get frozen out of accessing the internet through either Internet Explorer nor Firefox.

Before all of the above I... Read more

We're getting around to buying some new cell phones. Right now, the decision is between what T-Mobile is offering and what AT&T is offering (my dad got an offer at his job from T-Mobile to switch). We'll deal with that when the time comes. My quarel is with a feature on the iPhone. I got a GPS for my birthday after I got a car so that I could get around without getting lost. The only service fee I've had to pay for it was to keep my map updated. I never had to pay to use the satellite. The iPhone has GPS capability; but, you have to pay for that service. So, why is it I can buy a TomTom for less than $100 and get free satellite service but I have to pay extra to get GPS with the iPhone?

Now that prices have come down I want to buy a SatNav system for my car (online today PC World have the all-in-one TomTom Go for £399- the simplest solution. They also offer IPAQ1710 + seperate TomTom car kits at £299. I'm very torn on which to get. Although the seperate systems aren't so neat there's the bonus of having a Pocket PC u can take anywhere, and of course if one bit goes wrong it makes life simpler to put right. However he most important thing is that whatever system I get works well and is easy to use hence any advice would be very helpful.

Answer:BEST SatNav? -TOMTOM GO "ALL-IN-ONE" OR PDA+GPS ?

.Sorry to hijack your thread, but I am interesed in these devices as well. Perhaps you, or another member, would know if you have to subscribe to some service (satelite or GPS?) to get these devices to operate or do they just operate "out of the box"?Peter.

HiI'm completely new to SatNav (I'm touching 85) but have just bought the TomTom XL model and am in the process of learning what does what.Question:How do you delete unecessary items that are shown as recent destinations?If you solve this question, beware, there may be more in the future :)Many thanksRon

Answer:Newcomer to TomTom XL

Hi Ron, I expect yours works the same as my old TomTom 300 When I've say, entered 5 destinations, they all show as selectable, when I enter no. 6, the first entered is deleted and so on. Hope that made sense.John

Since installing Windows 7 Home Premium my TomTom isn't found by TomTom Home. The device isn't visible in Windows Explorer either. TomTom support say it's a device IRQ conflict in Windows 7 and not their problem and I should trawl Google to find the answer. All I have found is that IRQs can't be changed in Windows 7 so I'm stuck at the moment.

Any advice gratefully received.

Answer:TomTom 730 GPS not recognized

Not everything is supported in Windows 7..

Answer:used wrong charger in tomtom

You could have blown a fuse or something more serious.
Might pay to consult the instruction manual, or contact TomTom support?.
What makes you think that you have used the wrong in car charger. Was it regulated or unregulated, did it have the correct wattage/voltage etc?.

Can anyone assist? I cannot find the SD card. Is there anyway of loading a new card with the data and default maps?

Answer:Lost TomTom Go 710 SD Card.

If you have made a backup to the PC, put a formatted SD card into the TT and copy/paste across from the back up.
My pack ups tend to go to the TT folder in Programme Files. I'm on XP
