  1. Just one word more to say as time past using this software ... 1) I've read in the documentation that : C:\Users\xxxUserNamexxx\AppData\Local\Temp is always *not* saved by BackupMyPC ... like C:\hiberfil.sys and C:\pagefile.sys So, nothing wrong here. 2) It is also true for few others files/directory too ... Thus, C:\$Recycle.Bin is backup probably because this trash named directory has changed since XP/Vista (or even 98/2000) was: C:\RECYCLED instead ... And this one would not be backup. Same explanation for C:\swapfile.sys which was previously named win386.swp for example. C:\Windows\Temp is not exclude also ... Don't know why but, yes, that's the way this software was intented to work back in 2006... I agree. So,.... everything seems good !!! Alex.
  2. The fact is c:\$Recycle.Bin and c:\windows\temp are back-up. Some others temp files not. Perhaps a mystery from the programmers team ... Will the whole system work without these 6,77GB files. That's the question... We'll see... I'll try that one day to be sure ! Like you, I think that everything works fine and even for the scheduler: a message appeared just after saying to use Windows' scheduler instead as there is one installed (this was for old Windows 98 with no scheduler program present. One was added with this software for that...) Yes, I think we have covered all the (two) problems I got ! Thanks again for support ! Alex.
  3. [2] Windows set the archive bit of a file each time it's touched (created / modified and perhaps also renamed). It's only reset by backup software. Files to be archived again have been altered (sure!) even if filesize is unchanged. Files [to be archived again and] not altered have not been backup (problem one). Yes, probably we can considere that Win8 touch a lot of files up to 7-8GB every times perhaps for indexation purpose or internal tasks... and not backing-up System State reduced all that with no (real) lose of data. Alex.
  4. [1] Yes, it is the difference between what Windows said in "Computer's icon" for C: 38,7 GB used. And what BUMP7 said when all C drive checked with system checked also. Menu [Affichage / Information sur la selection] in english it's probably: Display / Informations said: 25,63 GB. Windows (used): 38,70 GB BUMP 7 (saved): 25,63 GB (in fact to be saved) ========= that's 13,07 GB lost now ... But these huge files in C:\ are not back-up : hiberfil.sys -2,8 GB pagefile.sys -3,5 GB for a total of 6,3 GB ... that's still 6,77 GB lost ... (could be the Windows recovery point ??? Not Recycle bin as it's saved/backup) - You, you lose 1,6 GB. I've found some examples of files not saved in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Network\Downloader (8MB) or C:\Users\Canal\AppData\Local\Temp (10MB) ... etc... All that is before compression as after compression eg: 20,66GB (I have omit some big files I don't want to backup again) became only 11,57GB ... Skipped file: COMREGDB.BAK same as you. Plus errors on some Windows 8 files with interogation mark("?") in their filename as BUMP7 cannot (and I understand it) backup. These are only 24KB (!)

La sauvegarde des fichiers de l'état du système, d'enregistrement de la classe COM+, du système d'exploitation et d'amorçage a réussi. Yes, disaster recovery seems to have disappeared ... I don't use it ! Perhaps, files not backup are not usefull ones... why backing-up a temp directory, why not another temp ... why not hiberfile and why yes for swapfile ...??? Perhaps, it has no right to see these 6,77GB - perhaps it's normal.
  5. First, thanks Brendon in trusting me it's really a Roxio product ! Second, oh yes the product works fine on Windows 8 (don't know for 8.1) except for the scheduler but this doesn't matter for me. Of course buying and running a 2006's software today in 2014 is a bit risky but that's I want to know: if everything work really really fine. For the moment, it seems. Website say yes also. Yes BUMP7. 7.5 or 7.0.5 ... So, here is again my first (of two) question : When I performed a full backup of C: I noticed not all files were backup ... a total of 12.46GB files are not back-up. Some files/directory were not. Example: 2 files on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Network\Downloader were not backup. C:\Users\Canal\AppData\Local\Temp not backup also (not usefull files to backup of course) but C:\Windows\Temp are ! Of course I can backup the whole disk using another partition as I've installed a dual-boot with two Windows 8 on the same disk. Note: Running BUMP as admin change nothing as it sees the same files/directory. My second (and last I think) question is why when I perform my first differential backup of C: (so my second backup just after the complete/whole C:) I got a 8GB set just few hours or days after ... 8GB have changed in such a short time !!!? It's seems if I unchecked the "System's state" option I got only 1GB what is a lot better ... That's probably why this option exist. Before, I was not checking this box as saving Registry each time was bytes consuming... That's certainly what I have to do here again. I use 50GB BD-RE disc to backup 40GB of data for the moment but that will expand rapidly soon... So, clues ? Solutions ? Ideas ? And thanks again Brendon !
  6. Hello ! I've just purchase a new license of BackUp MyPC v7 ( http://www.orlogix.com/product.php?catalogue_id=1&product_id=1 ). This is a well known software for me as I was using Seagate Backup Exec just before ... But today with Windows 8 I notice every files/directory were not backup when performing a complete full backup of C: - Probably BUMP7 has no right to chdir into these directory and see files. I don't have rights access to them... but even when run with admin rights it's the same ! So, what's wrong !?? Alex.
