  1. Hi 'ruby2zday, To simplify your post and question contained in it I would suggest for safe and reliable backup Ghost 12 image and Aronis True image software. Both are relatively simple to operate with external removable HD backup once weekly with incremental backups daily when your system changes over 500MB downloads. I run both - Ghost on my PC and Acronis on this Laptop. Have proven they work by buying new HD and using the recovery opton to the new HD.....all worked very well. ___________________ Regarding your question about startup running processes and start up ite

  7. Thanks Mouse for that explanation. The reason I was asking FJ2007 the two questions in my last post to him is his situation could not happen to me. I run an Internal Removable Seagate Barracuda E:\ Drive for Ghost images with incremental backups if 500MB downloads are exceeded with one full image backup each week. I have done a test run putting a new HD into my tower and restoring from the E:\Drive (Ghost Backup Drive) onto the new HD and was up and running in 10 minutes or so. I was not knowledged regarding your explanation so that is what was confusing me. and hence the two ques
  8. Let me first say this, I respect Mouse's expertize and information in the post to you HOWEVER A question to you 'FJ2007' 1) Have you got a internal removable HD soley for your Ghost Backup images? OR 2) Are the backup images on a partition on your C:\Drive assuming that is the drive you restored to factory condition. Please reply and then I will take it from there.
  9. Hi 'FJ2007' and Welcome to The Pit, Here are the system requirements for Picasa I see you are running Windows 98 which is not compatible with Picasa. Read this site particularly the second para where "Joe" has answered the post of "Irving S" Post back if you need more help.
  10. Right click on your External Drive in My Computer (Maxtor one touch II external drive) and find where all the backups are saved. How many MB's or if alot, GB's of backups are saved? Delete most of them except the most recent ones to free up the drive. At this point in time don't delete Retrospect HD Express or you will be without software to run your backups.... What size is your C:\Drive? What size is your Maxtor one touch II external drive. Clean up your My Documents folder of data you no longer use. What Antispyware and Antivirus software are you running and are the defin
  11. Some time ago, IntelGuy tried really hard to get my email notifications to work for me. It was intermittent after his attempt. I had a go at it about a week ago, changing the email contact address in My Controls and it has worked ever since. I changed to my yahoo email address from my private email address. Working fine for me now.
  12. If it aint broke don't fix it - I learned that on here and WTT forums. Some of my drivers are 2001, (New Driver Update Scan told me that) but I have no issues so am leaving well alone. Just my opinion only
  13. The thing about PCPitstop that really annoys me is the fact that you offer a Free Driver Scan and then when you go to update the drivers, you have to pay to do it. I just go to my manufacturers website and update them for free as I should be able to do. Again a less computer literate person would fall for that and pay for drivers they do not have to buy. Yes, it is all about making money unfortunately, but give us a break. If the scan is free let the updates be free.
