Solved: Client backup cmd script using robocopy.exe - completed and working

Q: Solved: Client backup cmd script using robocopy.exe - completed and working

Hey all,

Well this place helped me write my first cmd script so i would like to share it with you all and hope you enjoy it.

This particular script allows you to back up selected files or folders from a client computer through to a server after answering a couple of questions.

Its a great script but unfortunantly i have no need for it as it does not meet our requirements any more (note i only wrote it last week ).

The script comes with a backup version, and a restore version... so the theory is that you can back up selected files and folders from one client to the server, then restore it from the server to a new client, all with simple prompts.

I have also commented throughout the batch file as much as i could so hopefully it should be fairly easy for any admin guys using it.

The items it backs up are:

My documents
Desktop
Favorites
All pst files on the system
NK2 file - outlook file that remembers email addresses when creating new email and entering email it automatically suggests previously used email addresses
Outlook signatures

Its easy to add extra things to this script aswell. Also it is fairly easy to create it to do all of the backups without any prompts...

basically this is a batch file that is simple, but i spend a day or so writing it, and im proud of my crappy script so if anyone can find any use for it please do try it.
(now i just have to work out how i upload it)...

Thank you and commends are definately welcome

Regards,
Ivan

I apologize if this forum is meant for tech people as I'm a novice computer user, but I really need help.  I have Windows 7 x64 and I used RoboCopy for the first time, and have messed up royally.  I was trying to copy folders and files from my
computer to an external hard drive.  My external hard drive had important files and folders on it already, and I thought that copying more data using RoboCopy would just add to it, but it deleted everything that was on the external hard drive when it
copied the additional data.  
Can I undo what just happened?  Is there any way to revert?  Or maybe there's some way to recover that deleted data?
I used:  Robocopy C:\Users\Name\Documents F:/MIR /dcopy:T
I would be really grateful to be helped.  Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Quick question regarding robocopy. I am not that great in using it but I did manage to figure out that how to do basic copying and mirroring. My main issue is copying over files that have security permissions.

At this point, I have this:
Code:
robocopy c:\foldername e:\foldername /copyall /mir
What would I add and does it matter where I place the syntax for it to work?

Help appreciated.

EDIT: Figured out the security part. How would I get the script to still copy everything in the folder if its being used by someone else or they forgot to close it?

Thanks.

For quite some time I've been successfully using the following script to make regular backups of a database, but lately the backups are <1KB in size, where the database itself is a few hundred MB. I have no idea how to troubleshoot this, so any help would be much appreciated.
Code:

#!/bin/sh
# Backup description
fdesc='FORUMNAME'
# Backup filename
fname='BACKUPNAME'
# Destination directory (with trailing slash)
fdir=BACKUPDIR
# Database Settings:
fdb=DBNAME
fuser=DBUSERNAME
fpw=DBPASSWORD

echo "Backing up $fdesc database..."
tempname=$fdir$fname-`eval date +%Y-%m-%d`.sql
mysqldump --opt -quick -u$fuser -p$fpw $fdb > $tempname
echo "Gzipping $fdesc database..."
gzip $tempname
a=`eval date +%d`
a=`expr $a - 2`
echo "Deleting old backups... (Error messages are normal)"
tempname=$fdir$fname-`eval date +%Y-%m-`$a.sql.gz
rm $tempname
tempname=$fdir$fname-`eval date +%Y-%m-`0$a.sql.gz
rm $tempname

Yes, this is a generic script, without the actual relevant details for the particular site and server involved.

Hi,

I realise that if I limit the retries and wait time from the defaults the stall time will be shortened and the file(s) skipped. However, that does not resolve the issue why robocopy is having a problem copying the file(s).

I have found that if the erroring files are moved from the source location to the desktop, the following errors arethen recorded in the log:

I have created a batch file for copying my Documents folder to an external hard drive:






Quote:
robocopy C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents J:\Desktop-Backup\Documents /copyall /e /LOG+:c:\users\USERNAME\documents\backuplog.txt


The log file shows that it is backing up C:\users\USERNAME\documents\My Music and C:\users\USERNAME\documents\My Pictures.
That's fine, because I want those backed up anyway, but when I go to J:\desktop-backup\Documents, the Music and Pictures folders aren't there (or anywhere else on the J: drive).
I have "view hidden files and folders" turned on. It seems that the files are actually there because my Documents folder is only 700MB, yet several GB have been taken up on the J: drive.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks.

hi,

I have a standard Windows 10 build and I'm using robocopy to backup my data to an external drive. The goal is just to capture all my data so if the PC fails/gets stolen etc. I can restore my data on to another PC.

I'm doing a backup of c:\users\ as this seems to capture all my data. Are there any other folders you think I should backup?

I've excluded the 'AppData' folder as this seems to have a lot of stuff which is not data. Is that OK or do you think that should be backed up? Are there any other folders you think I should skip?

Thank you very much for your comments.

A:Backup completed but some files were skipped

Hello Joseph,

This error means that one or more folders that you selected to be included when you setup Windows Backup is no longer available to be backed up. Thus, it was skipped while backing up the others.

You can use step 4 in the tutorial below to "Change settings" in your Windows Backup to uncheck any included (checked) folders that have been deleted or moved.

Afterwards, you should stop getting this error.

Running windows 98SE.
Have a 160 GB Seagate external drive as backup. I use BounceBack as the SW to back up my system.

Prior to installing an extra hard drive, I want to complete a system backup to the Seagate.

Upon completion of a back up, I would like to be able to go into the Segate and simply check some recent files to determine they were backed up.

So, prior to back up I created a file and folder on my desktop. After completing the backup to the Seagate, I go into Seagate and cannot find that file.

How can I be sure all files were transferred?

Hello,

I am trying to build a system that will be used a file server and also provide backup via RAID 1 (mirror) for all files and External HDD and FTP backup for some files in a daily structure.

I believe the RAID is pretty self explanitory and will most likely purchase a system with that functionality to begin with.
- What is the difference between a Server and just a really good PC w/ RAID?
- We are considering a pre-built system such as a Dell - Any suggestions on this would be great.
- We could build it ourselves, but what are the things to look for. I have built PC's, but never a server

What we need to accomplish the External HDD and FTP backup would be some sort of script that runs on a schedule and will take all files located in C:\Files and copy them over to the External onto E:\Daily\{Todays_Date}.

-We also have some larger files that don't need to be backed up in a daily structure and would want those just copied to the External HDD and uploaded to FTP only if the files are new.

The amount of files is not extremely large and neither is the file sizes, but if there would be different ways of accomplishing this task based on the number of files, it would be good to know.

Any guidance on accomplishing either of these tasks would be very helpful. I have familiarity with this, but not an expert.

I have been trying to backup my C drive in preparation for cloning and installing a larger SSD drive. I am pretty sure that I have backed up my PC using win 7 backup before, but the last time was sometime last year. I previously burned my backup to disc, but this time I decided to backup to my networked My Book Live (2T). Each time I try it, I get the " Windows backup skipped backing up system because one of the critical volumes is not having enough space...". I have searched the "net" pretty extensively trying to find out why. My only feasible guess has something to do with the shadow storage. When it would not backup to the network drive, I tried one of my internal drives ( 465GB w/ 413GB free), with the same results. My C drive (120GB SSD) has 14.3GB free, but I don't know if this would affect it. I have watched the backup program progress and when it gets to 50% complete, it stops and give the error. I have even gone into an elevated command prompt and Typed 'vssadmin list shadowstorage' to look for the max storage space available, but could not find anything for my "G" drive or my network drive. Am I going in the right direction, or should I be looking for something else? If this gets to become more of a hassle than it's worth, I may just bite the bullet and do a fresh install on my new SSD drive. Any suggestions?

A:backup cannot be completed. Insufficient space. Error code 0x81000033

Since you have a WD hdd, download the Acronis Trueimage - free.
This will backup your C drive and allow you to restore it to your new SSD.
A clean install is probably your bet at this time -although either will work.

FWIW -If you keep just OS and programs on your current SSD and keep it at about 75%, you can save your money on a larger SSD.

Hello, I am hoping someone has a good lead (past posts have been VERY fruitful).

We need to backup 15-20 Windows users at our office and want to do to a local Network fileshare.

The native backup & restore although okay, really became limited once we had Win8 users with File History.

Looking online for Windows backup solutions, it has been tough to find a solid solution. Acronis kept coming up and we ended up buying some licenses but since then have had at least 50% of the users have issues with the backup software running slow and failing
(so clearly many reviews are not written by those in the field).

Long story short, we are looking for a standalone backup software client that is most importantly STABLE/RELIABLE but of course, needs to be space efficient (meaning, will respect disk space and support retention timeframes).

We simply don't want to explore Azure as we want backups kept inside our network instead of the cloud. We also don't want to have to install a backup server, again we want a standalone product that is stable across Win7/Win7/Win10 and beyond. Thanks in advance!!

So the client used to backing up with NovaNet but since is kinda old I am trying to implement better solution, I looked up Amanda project but it is not user friendly, a lot of commands and seems so harsh to configure.

Hi,
I've been wanting to transfer my files from an old HDD to a new one exactly as they are, with the time stamps the way they are currently on the old HDD and all, and I heard that using Robocopy via the command prompt can help me do that. However, I don't want to delete everything on the old HDD. I've been looking around the internet, and anything I can find is just confusing to me.

The old external HDD that has all my files and folders is J: and the HDD I want to transfer them to which is a new internal HDD is Z:

What would be the proper command for copying everything on J: exactly as it is to Z: ? I hope I put this question in the correct section, lol, and as always, thanks for everyones help.

I last used robocopy on 041209 and I updated my XP Home SP3 on 041609 and on 041909 I have found that robocopy does not work anymore. It will create the folder it is supposed to create but there are no contents in it. I have also tried xcopy and xxcopy and all they will do is the same. I repair reinstalled robocopy and the qui said "Please use Windows Update to check for any critical updates to the .NET Framework." This message was at the bottom of the gui and was a suggestion rather than a command about the .NET Framework updates. I have also run System File Checker.

What could be keeping robocopy, xcopy and xxcopy from copying correctly?

Below Added 042709

I have found that by pasting the robocopy argument from the
command file into the Run box the backup occurs as expected.
But the command file when clicked on still does not do the
backup. Below are two versions that work when pasted into
the Run box.

robocopy C:\Annoyance C:\BackupAnnoyance

robocopy "C:\Annoyance" "C:\BackupAnnoyance" /COPYALL /V /NP /R:10 /W:30

The results are the same when I use xcopy or xxcopy: clicking on the bat file does not backup anything but when I paste the bat files argument in the Run box the backup occurs.

In our organization, we've got about 20 computers, 5 or 6 mobile users.
about a combined 40gb of data.

up until now we've been using a 3rd party online backup solution to keep the users documents and outlook data backed up. The more the data grows, the more the monthly price grows, and is becoming a budget problem.

We have 2 windows server 2003 standard machines, and I'm building a sandboxed environment replicating the current users connected to the domain, getting ready to test/debug/deploy windows server 2008 and some vista clients.

on the server 2003, I've tried setting up backup schedules with windows backup (ntbackup.exe) and its not doing what it's supposed to. Every time I set up a schedule, and wait for the right hour/30mins/10 mins whatever for the backup test, it doesn't work too well.

I need a cost effective solution to replace our online backup service.
It doesn't matter if we don't end up upgrading to windows server 2008/vista, I'm simply building a test environment to compare security and performance.

We have like I said..
about 20 desktops - XP SP3, Outlook 2003, and some documents, etc.
about 5 laptops - XP SP3, Outlook 2003/2007, documents etc..

A:Need help with Client/Server Backup Solutions

Issues here;
the program for backup and its technique to move the data,
sizing how much capacity you need for the storage,
protecting the data from prying eyes (ie encrypting it),
and the product or service for the storage (is it on or off site?)




all users documents, outlook dataClick to expand...

By all user documents to you mean explicitly the My Documents folder or the
entire user profile area \documents & settings\user-login-id\ ?
The User Profile is much bigger and the Application Data folder (eg mine @ ~ 400mb)
and the Local Settings (mine @ ~483mb) are sizable but certainly 'not critical user data'.
The exceptions are Outlook keeps the PST under Local Settings and Oultlook Express is there too.
Some third part stuff (eg Thunderbird email) is found under Application Data.

Personally, I use Allway Sync for replicating my data (but it's not encrypted).
The selectivity of files is excellent any it is fast due to duplicating only changed files.
As I use it in manual mode, I've not tried the scheduling feature which is available.

My laptop finally crashed ( had a pack_40s malware problem that never seemed to get resolved) lost all my emails and addresses and they were important

I am re-thinking my email app
I am a die hard OE user - just cant seem to dedicate the time to learn Outlook or Firefox

I am looking for a professional opinion

It is better for me to buy software to download/backup OE ? If so what one would you recommend? (see bottom for attempts to learn how to backup OE)
OR
Try to use a new email app - maybe one of them is easier to back up

I have a client that is trying to send me thier Quicken backup file. We have done this before. She backs up the file, and zips the folder that it backs up into. She e-mails me the zip file, I uncompress it and update it into QuickBooks. There have always been 4 files (QDF, QEL, QSD, & QTX), the first one is the backup file, and I've always ignored the other ones. Yesterday she sent me the file she got when she did her backup. It was a .DIR. I walked her through the back up and she sent it again. This time it was the .QSD. I am not sure why this is happening. She has only sent me one backup from the directory I had her create. Is there something that happened during the first back up that is making this happen?

I'm using robocopy (ver XP010) on a Windows XP laptop to copy user files to another drive for backup.

robocopy "c:\my documents" "Z:\myname\my documents" /XO /M /ZB /E /MIR /log:c:mylog.txt /TEE

It creates all of the directories and subdirectories but doesn't copy any of the files. The log shows no errors - total dirs 162 copies 162, total files 1458 skipped 1458.

To minimize variables I tried using a new usb external NTFS hard drive (Z) but it still skips all of the files. I've verified the permissions and owership of the files and everthing seems in order. The problem is limited to this computer, the other computers in the group are OK. Any suggestions?

I just found out that 2 of the 6 computers in this group fail so I will be compairing files and permissions etc. to see what the two failed ones have in common against the working ones.

I have been writting backup scripts for a while now and I wanted to make everything very easy to work with and use.
what I want is a batch script that reads off a text file that lists the file locations and sets them to a variable. then using each variable i want to throw it through a for loop sending each location through robocopy command and backing them up to the source directory of the exe.

here are my problems:
below I have posted my code. I have found ways to grab the locations off the text file and make them a variable. What I haven't found is how to send those variables 1 by one through the robocopy command to backup. Below is the code I thought that would work. I have edited out some stuff and kept it as simple as I can.
Code:

@Echo Off
echo ### Mirroring...

:: this will grab each line of the locations text file and set it to a variable %%I
:: it will take the variable %%I and use it to know the next location to copy to external using the robocopy command

SetLocal EnableDelayedExpansion

Set InputFile="C:\locations.txt"

For /F "tokens=*" %%I IN (%InputFile%) DO (
Set location="%%I"

:: echo location for logging
echo %location% >>%logging%

::robocopy command pulling variables from almost everywhere
ROBOCOPY %location% %dest% %what% %options%

::report errorlevel
echo %ERRORLEVEL% >>%logging%


)
EndLocal

 

A:an all purpose backup script

As far as I can see this would execute robocopy once for each location with the location changing for each execution. So what's the problem?

I was able to successfully perform a 'remote client installation' of Ghost on 2 PC's, each containing 3 NICs by disabling all but my main network connection and then installing. (NOTE: You also have to be sure you are doing a 'clean' install. If you try and it fails you may have to manually clean all Ghost entries out of the Registry to get it to install) After the install completed I re-enabled the NICs necessary for normal operation. Then, In Ghost Console, right-clicking on the properties showed an error stating 'multiple NICs found ...', I followed some online advice and went into the configuration IP/Netmask settings and hardset the ethernet card template to the one I wanted it to use. Once that was done I was able to complete a clone/backup Task on the first PC successfully. However, on the second system, which happens to be 17 miles away and a little difficult to get to, it's not working. I can trigger the Task to clone, and through a PCAnywhere session to the remote PC I get a prompt saying that an Admin. task is starting to close all windows, so it's talking, but then the Ghost Cast Server session waits for it to complete the reboot and join the session to begin the backup, but it times-out.

I have used the backup utility that comes with Windows 2000 Workstation for about 8 months, every day. All of a sudden it crashed while verifying the backup.

Now every time I try a backup, even to a different device and different media, it finishes and throws up an error message, the latest being the one about "backup has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. An error log....."

I thought if I removed and reinstalled the backup utility it might fix it. I could not find it in the add/remove programs screen or the System Tools.

Anyone know where it can be removed from Windows and reinstalled? Anyone have any ideas on how to get it back to normal? Any help appreciated!

Using Windows 7 / 2008 built in backup utility replacing NTBAckup it's no longer possible to backup to a UNC path from GUI, however with wbadmin command it is..

Having tried this it seems to work ok but each backup overwrites the contents of the previous one but leaves date in the foldername the same..
I think a way to get around this would be to move, at the end of each backup, the files from destiantion into another folder so the next time it executes it creates a brand new correctly dated folder.
I could then run another script to remove old backups automatically.
This is my rough batch file but I guess could be improved:
1) Do you see any errors in this syntax?
2) Is there a better way of doing any of this
3) Do I need to include the date/unique ID in destination folder so Catalog folder and MediaID files aren't overwritten daily (how?) or does it not matter if they are?



Code:
rem use Win 2008 wbadmin to backup server to UNC path
wbadmin start backup -include:c:,d: -backupTarget:\\destpath\servername -quiet>>C:\Win2008_Backup_Script\backup_log.txt

rem robocopy to move daily backup to subfolder named date.
robocopy /MOVE \\destpath\servername\WindowsImageBackup\servername \\destpath\servername\Daily_Mo-Th\%date% z /e /log+:C:\Win2008_Backup_Script\robocopy_log.txt /w:5 /r:20 /np /eta

A:Script to schedule network backup and retention

I don't know if I can help as I am not familiar with backing up to a server. However, the way you explain it it basically works the same as it does for regular home backups. If I backup to an external hard drive it will overwrite the previous image. To resolve that if you want to keep multiple backups you can move the backup to a different Hard drive, you can put the backup into a folder, or to me the simplest way is to rename the backup. When the backup runs it will be Windowsimagebackup. I simply rename it to the date ie. 4-23windowsimagebackup. It will then run a new backup. That way you can select which backup to restore. The only thing to rememeber is to restore the backup you have to name it back to the original name. I hope this helped some.

Well, after several failed attempts to clone my boot partition the right way, I broke down and used RoboCopy. Now, I know that you're not supposed to do this. I know it's bad joojoo. But I've done it now. It is done. Now I want to work with the partition I have and make it bootable. I have a sense that I will need to recreate the junctures that were on the original disk. And maybe something with securities as well? There were some "Error 5"s. Other than that, what do I need to do? The files themselves are copied. Now it's a matter of the hidden stuff, I think. Surely you guys know the secret glue that holds an OS together.

Well, I ran chkdsk /v /r on the old drive, and it became stable enough to read without problems. So then I copied the boot partition with Partition Wizard. After all that hassle with Acronis, it was a free program I already had that did the job. I'm good now, so let's call it solved.

I back up my files and system image weekly. I move the recorded TV shows (broadcast TV, nothing illegal) before that from my hard drive onto an external drive. Another drive in the same cabinet does the backup. It saves time and I won't want those files after a disc failure anyway.

It would be cool to be able to program the computer to move those files (but not subfolders) over at, say 11.05 pm in preparation for the midnight backup.

But I'm no programmer. If you can show me how to do it I'll begin learning how to do this kind of thing.

It would be easier to put the recorded TV in a subfolder though I suppose... then no code would have to be written to ignore subfolders, right?

Any arrows pointing to easy-to-understand external pages on scripting, the language, would be appreciated too.

I need some code whereby the user has to enter values in certain fields before they can save and exit the workbook. For example, if they enter the letter "A" in any row of column M, then they have to enter a numerical value of between 0 and 50 in the same row column T. Does that make sense?! Any ideas?
 

A:Solved: Force fields to be completed - MSExcel

Yes. Use this event macro (see attached image).
It will run before the workbook is closed. You can evaluate a criteria and depending on it, set Cancel to true or false. If you set Cancel true, then the Workbook remains open. In this branch of "If... Then... Else..." you can also set up an MsgBox to inform the user what he must do to be able to close the workbook.
The macro must be on the Workbook's class module.

Edit:

Oh, yeah, Save. You can do something similar with save. The macroname will be
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)

End Sub

Within a couple weeks of getting my laptop (Dell Vostro 3700, intel i5, Win7 Pro 32-bit) I used the Windows backup tool to make a set of restore disks. I have recently learned this may have been a mistake.

Fast forward: a few weeks ago I did a clean install of Win7 from the system disks that came with my computer. It worked ok, but it's missing drivers and programs and such- I've lost multitouch on my trackpad, for instance.

So I decided to restore from my DVDs, and they don't work. Some quick research around this site informs me this is not uncommon, but is there a way to pull the data off them onto, say, an external hard drive, and restore from there? Or restore parts of the data by hand?

You will have to "take ownership" of it, basically following the instructions in the article below.

This is all been very recent as I used to be able to just hit reply on a CL add and my windows live would open allowing me to respond to the add. Any suggestions would be great??

A:F5 VPN Client not working in Windows 10

Many people have asked about this question with lots of frustration and I'm surprised Microsoft have not put any answer out yet. It is a blocker for Win10 adaption now. Customer service should know better about their priority. Anyway, the
way to connect is similar to Windows NT 8.1.
You can install F5 VPN Client from Windows 10 App Store. Note, it is currently a developer preview version.
Windows 10 -> Settings -> Network & Internet -> VPN -> Add a VPN connection

Choose VPN Provider as F5 VPN Client (it should show up after the app is installed) and fill in the rest. My server is F5 BIG-IP.

Hi,

I have an internal website requiring the user to provide a client certificate to allow access. On my client computer I have installed my user certificate and it shows up in the certificates list in IE8.

However, when I try to access the website I get an 403.7 error in the IIS log (client certificate required). IE doesn't even ask me for a certificate but just displays a blank site.

If I try browsing the website from the same client computer but using the Google Chrome browser, everything works just fine.

I have tried altering the various IE security settings and adding the site to Trusted sites etc. but haven't been able to solve the issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just configured WDS server which is separately located and is not on an existing DHCP server.
The IP address range and subnet is same for all the servers.  (192.168.200.***)

For testing purpose I have mounted boot/install.wim for windows x86 8.1 pro edition in the WDS.



In DHCP server, I have configured server options:

066 as wds servers host name (wds.***.com)  (also tried with ip address of wds server but to no vail)
067 as \boot\x86\wdsnbp.com

Recently I have configured MBAM 2.5 with reporting through SCCM in my environment. Once the MBAM client was installed on x64 Windows 7 and Windows 8 clients they started reporting in. Shortly after starting the deployment I realized that the x86 clients
that received the clients were not reporting. Looking at the client MBAM logs in event viewer they are empty.
The GPO settings should not cause the clients to not respond, I can see x64 clients in my SCCM reports that have not had the GPO applied yet that show "Policy is not enforced". I would think the x86 clients should at least have the same message.
I have a Windows 7 x86 laptop in my lab now that has the SCCM client and has had the  x86 MBAM client manually installed. This device is not reporting in and not giving the message to encrypt the drive even though the GPO has been applied.

Please help,

I have said it earlier and I’m going to repeat myself here: Job postings are one of the only official sources of information regarding Microsoft’s upcoming operating system Windows 8. A new job posting was recently discovered that connects the Windows 8 Client Backup feature with Microsoft’s cloud based service Windows Azure.

Here is what the job posting for a Software Development Engineer in Test reads: The Windows Server Solutions group is under the Server and Cloud Division. Our mission is to promote adoption of Microsoft server and cloud platforms/products by using features that appeal to specific market segments. The segments we currently focus on are homes, educational institutions and small businesses. (Windows Home Server, Windows MultiPoint Server and Windows Small Business Server are our key product lines.) We work on a wide range of technologies to appeal to these segments – from kernel-level to native UI to managed UI to web services. For instance we have developed a centralized PC backup, extensible storage, UPnP-based router configuration utilities, a remote web workplace with a GFS backend and a simplified IT management UI. We are currently working on a Windows Azure-based service and integrating with certain Microsoft online services and Windows 8 client backup. Many of the features we develop have ended up in the Windows Client and Windows Server OSes.

A:Windows 8 Client Backup In The Cloud, Powered By Windows Azure

Hi there
I think these "Cloud Backup solutions" are actually "Pie in the Sky".

I regularly back up maybe 1TB of data in a few weeks -- what sort of Internet service with a DECENT UPLOAD speed and uncapped bandwidth is ever going to make this viable even if I wanted to do it.

Now I'm only a single home user -- imagine the load on the Internet if loads and loads of us wanted to "Cloud Backup" this volume of data.

If you are talking smaller volumes --well 64 GB USB sticks are available and the latest 1TB "USB powered" mini hdd's are also cheap and a MUCH better solution IMO too.

hello,
A person in our office recently upgraded what pc she uses at home to one that had Vista installed. I've tried setting up the Microsoft OS-included VPN and UltraVNC software on it that we use to remotely access our office pcs from home, and I've found out that in past in Win XP when you setup the security of the VPN connection you use the protocol MS-CHAP (the older one, not Version 2). The problem is that in Vista, they've phased out MS-CHAP, it's not available as a VPN security protocol type. I've tried all the other choices it gives and none of them will allow me to successfully connect to the corporate network from home with a Vista-equipped pc.

Do you know what needs to be done to setup the VPN connection in Vista to allow it to successfully connect through the Cisco Pix 506E firewall device to the office network?

For the past few years I have used the following vbs script to perform a simple archive on files. After several updates earlier in the year, they quit working. Gives me the error "can't create object 'Scripting.FileSystemObject', error code: 800A01AD
I really havent had time to seriously research the issue until today.

The most prominent updates on my WinXP Pro system are SP3, "Windows Power Shell 1.0", and all the .net framework updates (08/14/09). I think that one of them may be the culprit. Is there a better way to write this simple code, or does anyone know what may be causing the error.
Code:
Dim fso
set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fso.CopyFile "C:\Data Files\Databases\Case Management.mdb", "L:\DB Backups\Case Management (" & Replace(FormatDateTime(Date(),2),"/","-") & " " & Replace(FormatDateTime(Time(),4),":","") & ").bak"

OK so my server was unplugged, maliciously or not for at least two days it was unplugged. When I finally discovered it I restarted the computer and I had to restart the DNS because no one could get online through Ethernet. I also reset the WAN and the LAN. Now my wifi lynksys that has always worked shows up in the network, but devices trying to connect cannot obtain an IP address and cannot get on the internet.
In addition I noticed that my comcast modem will recognize the service and my dlink switch in LAN 2 and LAN4 ports but the LAN1 port where the wifi unit is connected will not light up and detect the wiifi. I have reset the modem and the wifi unit several times and nothing is working.
Can anyone think of anything else, or could this be a comcast issue? Oh, forgot to mention this all started right after a lightning strike on friday and the internet went down.
I tried configuring a new wifi unit but the same thing happens, so I reconnected the old wifi unit as it stands this is where I am at.
 

A:Ethernet working wifi not. Client server environment.

Has the wifi SSID name changed since you reset the router? Since the reset of the wifi router, what is the default IP address? Remove the wifi unit from switch and plug into a laptop or other Ethernet PC and attempt to connect to it after setting your Ethernet NIC to the static IP4 settings specified by the instruction manual for the linksys router. Make sure the linksys routers ip settings do not conflict with the Comcast gateway's own DHCP settings. What is handling DHCP in your network?

Evening all. Been looking through this forum a bit over the last few hours as there seem to be rather knowledgeable folk around here.

I'm running 2 Laptops, a Notebook running Vista Home Premium (\\moonjuice, the host, with USB Modem for Internet connectivity), and a Netbook (\\epic, super-mini-laptop) running Win XP Professional. The Notebook is on 24/7 connected to the net, and for the last 3 or so months I've been using ICS through wireless ad hoc so the Netbook could also use the net while I roamed around the house.

Last week I had a bit of an issue with my Notebook (involved nuking TrustedInstaller during the attempted installation of Critical Windows Updates) which ended up with me using System Restore to rollback the Notebook to the previous Monday before the Windows Updates were performed (August 16th). I haven't touched any of the network settings since I got them working a couple of months ago, but the Netbook just doesn't want to use ICS anymore.

I'll try to fill in as much information here so we can sort this problem out ASAP:
Internet is provided by a USB Modem connected to the Notebook (Vista). It's set to Private Network, and has ICS enabled. The LAN adapter is disabled so it should automatically use WAN for ICS. The Wireless ad hoc network is also set to Private Network.
Both the Notebook and Netbook are using manual settings for IP. (see attached images ipv4_vista.png and ipv4_winxp.png). I tried using auto for the Netbook b... Read more

I have a logon sript that runs a vb exe on a shared drive. The exe collects info from the workstations and sends it to an sql database. It was working great, now for some reason certain users/profiles have stopped running the exe. Why?

Code:
set LISTFOLDER=D:\List\
set FILESPATH=D:\Igre\COD-MW2\main\images
set DESTPATH=D:\Igre\COD-MW2\main\images\thepit

REM for /r %LISTFOLDER% %%I in (*.txt) do echo xcopy /qvs "%FILESPATH%\%%~nxI" "%DESTPATH%%%~pnxI"
for /r %LISTFOLDER% %%I in (*.txt) do xcopy /qvs "%FILESPATH%\%%~nxI" "%DESTPATH%%%~pnxI"
This script does not work.

The poster on another fourum said it could be a typo or something, but no further info was provided what the correct script is, although he had no errors, he mentioned it could be environment, I'm on win7 x64.

I have another similar script for filenames in a txt only, which appears to work, but it doesn't work because I have filespath in the txt, in the meantime i'll manually remove paths to see if it'll work with that, but still this script would be handy to save time in future.

A:CMD or Powershell Moving - script not working

I've got it working a bit more with filenames


Code:
@echo off

set FILELIST=D:\List\imageFilenames.txt
set FILESPATH=D:\Igre\COD-MW2\main\images
set DESTPATH=D:\Igre\COD-MW2\main\images\thepit

for /f %%X in (%FILELIST%) do call :COPY_FILES "%%X"
goto :eof

:COPY_FILES
for /r %FILESPATH% %%I in (%~1) do xcopy /qvs "%%I" "%DESTPATH%%%~pnxI"
But the error is

"cannot perform cyclic copy"

Because this java, i can't run for instance McAfee installer. It displays the massage and only option is to push ok, and it closes.

Hi,
 
I have a .vbs to run wakeonlan.exe (also tried shutdown.exe) to run as a shutdown script. The script works fine from a command line or double click but it fails when run as a shutdown script.
 
Maybe some service that either exe needs is stopped before the script runs so there is some sort of error???
 
I want my HTPC to shtudown my media server when it shuts down, and start the server when a certain user(the HTPC front end) logs in. I beleive the wake portion works fine, I've had no success on the shutdown..
 
i have tried inserting a line to run a timer for thrity seconds and hold it up, no luck
 
I use the parameter to halt script execution until the program completes, no change.
 
Is there a way to make shutdown scripts run before anything else is stopped in a shutdown?

This one is odd to me: with help from friends here and elsewhere I was able to resolve an issue with getting two routers working well with a Wifi Client-Bridge mode on the subtending router. Network looks good, throughput is good, addressing is good. I'm typing this on my daily driver which is wifi'd to the net, and able to browse the two other live PC's [at the moment], one of which homes the Homegroup - its running 7 Ultimate x64. Able to get into all the shared files & such but only through the "Network", not the Homegroup. When I click on the HOmegroup icon on either machine, I get the message "No other homegroup computers are currently available". the network type is set to "home" on all machines.

any clues?
