Machine Backup

Postby FredHirsch » Wed, May 11 2011, 12:19PM

I know this topic has been discussed before, but I'm having problems finding the post on the board. What files are needed to be backed up? I know Rolling Nest on D: but not sure the stuff on C:
Thx
Fred

Ryan,
Thanks for the info.

Michael,
I use that free sync program MS gives away and copy over the network twice a week. Problem was I moved desktop computers and frazzled the copying app and couldn't remember the vitals.

Thanks,
Fred

Yes, same thing here, built a new showroom/ office and my IT guy is always in a hurry and I constantly run into things he did not check, makes me worry.
I used to be able to run my router from my office, but for some reason he is now fighting this..Arghhhh

Ya, sounds reasonable, but I am on my third one and he is good, but over the top busy....
Ran into a couple of real winners to begin with, so I am giving this guy a little extra room.

That is a good idea about using the All way Sync program on the THM Control files. I just don't know how to do it. Yet.
Yes if you are using Microsoft Essentials or Microsoft One Care for virus protection you will have network connection problems with the THM control
But the network tech seamed to like it. After he left I deleted those 2 programs and installed ESET antivirus
No more network problems
