I have a Dell Dimension 8200 running IE8 with XP, SP3 , Windows
Firewall, Avira antivirus, Spybot (for updates only), Spywareblaster,
ATF and Hive Cleanup and all the programs work well together and are
up to date.
I don't have a dedicated hd for backups but use Nero instead to backup
my files and folders and works reasonably well for my purposes.
Tonight, I was backing up my files and all went well. The only
difference this time around was that I decided to backup my internet
folders which contain all my links.
When it was finished I decided to check some files to make sure it had
indeed backed them up which is something I always do. However, when I
tried to acces the files off the D: drive: it gave me this message:
when I closed this message it gave me this:
You do not have access to the folder D:\ see your administrator for
access to this folder.
I then logged into my adinistrator account and tried it again and it
gave me the exact same messages. Now I've done this a number of times
but this is the first time I've seen these messages. There were no
problems during the burining of the disc and all went as normal.
I would suggest, if you are open to a better backup scheme, to consider
something like Acronis True Image, which can back up your entire C:
partition, and you won't have to worry about which files to selectively
backup (it can do the whole enchilada). Plus it doesn't take all that
to backup or restore the complete C: partition, if you have a reasonably
fast or new computer. If you don't have a second HD you can get an
or external (in an enclosure) pretty inexpensively these days, and then
you're covered for almost any continguency.- Hide quoted text -

I appreciate the suggestion and I understand all that but I'm on a
very marginal fixed income. Perhaps the problem lies in trying to
backup the links since that is the only difference from my previous
That seems so.
Do you only have one HD over there? (I wasn't sure if that's what you
indicated.) (I'm assuming when you mentioned D:, you meant the D:
partition on your one internal HD, but I'm not sure).
IF you do have any other physical HD (besides your internal C: one), that
would work fine for the image backups - it does NOT need to be reserved for
just that purpose (meaning, you can have other partitions and other stuff on
it too. You would simply store the backup images on one of its partitions).
BTW, I know well what you mean by being on a marginal income - same here.- Hide quoted text -

I was premature in my posting because I just remembered that I bought
extra hard drives for the computer so I already have them! All I need
is the Acronis True Image software so I will be taking your excellent
suggestion. I seem to remember something about primary and secondary
plugins on the ribbon cable? Anything else, or are there instructions
on how to install a second hard drive?
In passing, I did restore my computer to a later date and tried Nero
again and this time it worked. It may have also have been a bad disc
(who knows?). In any case, it's working.
