Bump Ver. 7 Restore Issue To Fresh Os-thanx!

Question

Using Roxio 'Backup by PC' with external HD on an XP. When restored to my PC

(after a rebuild) every folder in the path down to the backed up file is 'access denied'. It was such a mess I had to restall the OS _again_. I was able to restore to a Vista machine and for that turned off 'retain folder structure' for simplicity. Then with my Vista I was able to take ownership and open the permissions for access to the parent folder and the individual files. Then copied them back to my XP. I only did this with a few critical files and not the whole 15 GB .qic archive (would be alot of work). Anyone know what is happening here to cause such a headache?. Can you not use this process to restore files to a machine with a fresh OS? (I should have just dragged and dropped!) Thanks.

The term "backup" is used for two different things: an archive of personal files that can be read on any computer, and a system-restore.

 

You are using a system-restore program. What it sounds like you wnat is an archive.

 

For that, you would be wiser to chose a Sessions-based recording program, such as WinXP's built-in burning, or Sonic RecordNow's DataDisc, or Roxio Easy Media Creator's Creator Classic, to burn the data to disc.

 

System-restore programs need the original program to do the restoring because the data is compressed in a way that is incompatible with all other system-retore programs.

I was sure the instructions said you could restore a backup to any machine as long as you first installed BUMP. After installing installing the fresh O/S and drivers I installed BUMP from the external drive it came on and which is the program I used to create the .qic archive.

 

What do I need to do in order to easily recover these files? I mean, I am able to get to them with the steps using a Vista machine in my orginal post ... it's just a _lot_ of work. Thanks.

With BUMP loaded do you get the choices of Restore Drive or Restore Files?

Restore Drive should restore the image you have made,overwriting everything on the drive and restoring it to the shape it was in when you made the image.

Restore Files should let you browse that image for individual files and restore them.

If you don't have Restore Files,or something similar,then you can't do what you're trying to do.

 

It should restore that image to any drive you try and put it on but keep in mind you should lose everything else on that drive when you restore an image.

 

I haven't used BUMP for a while so I'm not sure what you have available but Lynn is correct.It sounds more like you need to just backup files and restore (archiving) rather than making an image and restoring it.

 

Most newer programs that will backup to an image will allow file restoring from that same image.I know that Norton Ghost,Acronis True Image and Roxio's own Back on Track do.If this is the route you wish to go then you might want to check out one of them.
