Performance :: Can't Backup A Specific File

Jan 28, 2016

I just bought a WD My Passport Ultra and it comes with a copy of WD Backup. Never using backup software I decided to give it a try and see what happens. I had no problems at all until I ended up with a message "These files failed to back up: UPPS.bin, 15.77kb". so I decided to try and find the file, which I found. The question is, what this file does and is it necessary to backup? Probably most of you know where this file is but for those who don't you can find the file at: C:UsersUser NameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsUPPSUPPS.bin.

Performance :: How To Stop Getting File History Backup

Feb 23, 2016

Whenever I do the File History Backup; at completion it gives me the following message: "Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:UsersAdminSkyDrivePictures. Error: (The system cannot find the path specified. (0x80070003))". I believe this occurred for the first time after I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I no longer have a SkyDrive folder it was replaced with a OneDrive folder. For some reason it is still looking for the SkyDrive folder. In the "Exclude from File History" screen I am unable to exclude the SkyDrive folder. I guess that doesn't surprise me because I no longer have SkyDrive folder. How then do I prevent this error occurring when doing a File History backup?

Performance :: Use File History Or Win 7 Backup And Restore?

Nov 13, 2015

I've been using Backup & Restore on some Win 7 systems but now I have added a new Win 10 PC (from HP).

It's not entirely clear to me why I would use the Win 10 File History facility versus Win 7 Backup & Restore. File History looks like a partial backup. I'd prefer a full backup. Win 10 advertises creating a System Image but I don't consider that an alternative to a file backup with all the files (mine and the system's).

Performance :: Registry Backup File Size Is Growing

Nov 10, 2015

I've backed up my registry twice recently, and I noticed a huge difference in the size of the backup file. Two days ago, the backup I created was 18,066 KB. The one I created this morning is 247,691 KB. Should I be concerned about this, and, if so, what can I do about it?

Customization :: How To Do Specific Performance Adjustments

Oct 2, 2015

I have a paid Utility that I use to set certain performance adjustments. What I'd like to do is find out exactly where I can make these same adjustments from within Windows 10, so I can make these same adjustments on a PC where I don't have access to that same utility.

Here is the first batch of settings, restart the Shell, force DLL unload from memory. Increase paged memory usage for NTFS. I can disable Auto Restart fro the Advanced Settings panel in System Info, so that's not a problem. The last item "Adjust Processor Scheduling for best performance of Programs/Services, I know where that is as well, so it's the top three settings I'm not sure where they are.

This one, I'm not sure where to shut off the prefetcher

And finally these three settings. which tell the system to shut down quicker.

But most important is at the very bottom there, "Automatically Close Non-Responding applications"-

Which is very useful when apps want to hang during shut-down.

I don't know exactly how the tool is doing some of these things.

I have the Utility in my home systems, so it's no problem here, mostly it's when I have to work on a PC when I am away from home, these particular settings useful with performance.

There are also some Networking settings, I don't know exactly how to duplicate:

Which is useful for various types of broadband networks. I've been dependent on tools like these since XP, I figure if the tool can make the adjustments, why can't I just do it directly?

Can't Print A Specific Word File

Feb 4, 2016

The company I work for recently upgraded our computers to Windows 10.

My boss receives a Word document from our supplier every month. Before we had new computers, he used to print this off each time with no problems. However, when he clicks print now, nothing happens. The printer dialogue box appears for a second but nothing prints out and it is not left in the print queue.

He has forwarded the email with the Word document to myself and other colleagues and we all have been able to print it with no problems. So I thought it must be something wrong with his printer. However, he is able to print anything else. We have printed other Word documents, Excel docs, PDFs etc.

I copied the content of the document that he can't print onto a blank new Word document to try and print it. However, the same happens...It seems there is something in the actual document that is stopping the printer from printing it?

Performance :: Any Way To Save One Specific Restore Point

Feb 10, 2016

I have restore point space limited to 2Gigs on my Tablet. I've noticed that when a new restore point is created at the top of the list, an old one is removed from the bottom of the list. Sooner or later, I will end up with totally new restore points. Is there a way to save one specific restore point, and not loose it? (without actually backing up (not an option on my Tablet) ).

Performance :: What Exactly Does Backup Do

Dec 3, 2015

I am puzzled by the term backup when you go to Settings > Backup.

I have a folder on my NAS defined as my backup drive.

I have set the time interval to every ten minutes until I am sure of what is being backed up.

Does the backup process store MY files as opposed to WIN 10 files in that folder and could be used to restore them if I had to re-install Win 10?

Performance :: Backup Add A Drive?

Jan 2, 2016

Jan. 3rd 2016 I have a 931 GB external HDD using a brick power supply and connected by USB. I wish to do weekly backups to it via Start/Settings/Update & Security/Backup.

It is not listed when I click Add a drive, although I can see and read it in This PC. I tried a restart but that has not worked. I do see a couple of USB sticks which are too small. Trying via Advanced settings is the same.

Prior to trying to add this drive I scrolled down and followed the instruction which said to delete the previous drive which was also an external HDD connected by sata. I used THAT drive via Macrium and it got carried over in the W10 update from W8.1.

Performance :: Applying Backup Without OS Running

Jan 15, 2016

addressing in order to not lose my data. To give a bit of background, my laptop has 2 internal hard drives, 1 is my main/primary drive which I used for day to day operation and the other was just a backup drive which has a system image of my system.

My main drive failed, and after many horrifying clicking, scratching and high pitch squeals coming from the drive, I can only assume it has failed mechanically and isn't some kind of virus. So now I'm currently left with only my internal backup drive with a system image on it.

I was hoping to use this backup drive as my new primary drive, however I want to keep the files on the backup drive. I checked with my Hirens Boot CD and saw that my backup drive contains everything my other hard drive had, including the operating system contained within the Windows backup folder.

Normally for this I would install windows on another hard drive and then restore my files with the system image. However my laptop doesn't have a system restore disc or a copy of windows, it instead came with partitions on the hard drive which requires erasing my backup and consequently losing all my data.

I finally ask the question, is it possible to use the files currently stored on the backup drive without having to resort to buying a new hard drive to copy the files across and then partitioning my backup drive?

Backup And File History Not Working

Jan 26, 2016

I am trying to backup my data (not a system image) to an external hard drive Although I have succeeded in backing files up the system does not work automatically (as it implies it will) and the only work around seems to be to select an alternative drive each time.

In addition if I use File History to attempt a backup the system appears to write to the external hard drive but nothing gets recorded. There is sufficient space for the data (12GB - hard drive total size 120GB) so I do not think it is lack of space.

Performance :: Windows Image Backup Failing

Feb 10, 2016

My wife's Samsung laptop gets a failure whenever trying to do an image backup. Actually, this has been happening for quite a while - even before she installed Windows 10 when she had W7. I was hoping that the problem would go away with W10 but it hasn't. Backup runs almost to the end and then fails with the attached message. The message says to run dskchk on both her drive and on the backup drive which I did. No problems were found. (I backup my desktop on that drive all the time with no problems.) I tried backing it up on another external drive that also tests good but got the same error message.

Performance :: Clean Install Then Recover Backup

Nov 17, 2015

Long story sort I kind of messed up my GPT partition table. I have backed up an image of my Boot partition only (C:) and not any other partitions such as bootloader etc...

So my question is, would I be able to start all over, re-format the drive from Win10 installation media and do a clean install, then paste my backup onto just the boot partition leaving everything else in tact? I know how to rebuild the bootsector in case I can't boot.

Edit: Wasn't sure if this should go here on into the Install section, mods feel free to move it if needed.

Performance :: Does Windows 7 Backup And Restore Work

Nov 23, 2015

I've noticed after upgrading Windows 7 to 10 that Backup and Restore (from 7) remains available in the Control Panel. The app appears to work, but I tried running a backup, including system image, on a friend's system and heard that it failed. I haven't looked at it yet, but wondered if perhaps this app doesn't work properly in Windows 10?

Performance :: Backup Stopped Working When Upgraded

Jan 11, 2016

I just upgraded from Windows 7 home premium to windows 10. When the automatic backup that I had scheduled under windows 7 ran, I got an error. When I try to run backup manually, I get an error saying that I don't have enough space. My C drive is a 745 GB drive with only 128 used. My backup drive is one TB with 438 used and 656 free. I would think that would be enough space. It always worked under windows 7. What do I do?

Extract Individual Files From Backup File?

Apr 6, 2016

My daughter backed up her computer on an external drive.  I would like to extract some picture files that she saved on her computer for me several weeks ago, but I do not want the backup file to open up on my own computer.  Her computer is being shipped in for repairs.
Is there a way that I can access the files without actually opening up that whole backup file?  When I click on the image, it does not give me an option to "view files and folders".
