W10M backup restore says can't connect service after safety code check on Lumia 950

Q: W10M backup restore says can't connect service after safety code check on Lumia 950

I have an issue when trying to restore backup after factory reset on my Lumia 950. I just receive error message which says can't connect to service. The error message is in Finnish so in English it might be somewhat different, but I think message is clear anyhow. Restore goes to about 20%, but after checking the safety code this error appears. I have tried WLAN both at work and at home and also mobile data. Any ideas how to solve this or is there just something broken at Microsoft?

Glance screen auto off via proximity its not practical and itwill just drain your battery if its always on but you can't see it because of the cover or the phone face down on the surface.

When I try to run Windows back up (not system restore) I get error 0x80070422. The error message reads something like “This service can not be started because it is either disabled or it has no enabled devices associated with it.” I looked around and found a list of services associated with Backup & Restore and their startup settings (manual/Automatic Etc.) I went through the list and everything is correct EXCEPT “Windows Backup” - “Manual” (manual is the setting not part of the name). There is no service with that name. All the other 5 are there and set correctly. What the heck can I do about a missing service? I really don’t need this grief <grin>.
Any comments or suggestions welcome.
Tnx,
Dusty

A:Backup & Restore, Missing Service?

Hello Dusty, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can use the tutorial below to restore the missing Windows Backup service to hopefully help afterwards.
Services - Restore Default Services in Windows 7
These are the services you need, and what they need to be set to:Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) - "Manual"
Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider (SWPRV) - "Manual"
Remote Procedure Call (RPCSS) - "Automatic"
COM+ Event System (eventsystem) - "Manual" & "Automatic"
System Event Notification Service (sens) - "Automatic"

I following a seminar on A+ certification. I checked my system to see backup and restore options but the window was blank. I checked services and Windows backup was disabled. I set it to Automatic and started the service. Now I can see backup/restore.

Is there a reason it was disabled? Virus (did a full scan last week), uninstalling a piece of software, etc?

Hi,
I did a full backup using vista backup and recovery centre onto a seagate 160gb usb drive. The backup completed successfully so I rebuilt the machine.

On trying to rebuild, I run bakup and restore center and it cant even see the drive (it can see the C partition, the E (recovery) partition and nothing else. It doesnt see the D (Data Partition) or the USB device.)

Tried copying it to the E partition and forcing it to use it but get backup location not found which is mentioned elsewhere as an issue with mediaid.bin.

any ideas, i now have a shiny sparkly new machine with no data on it.

The data is there in a compressed form but id much rather restore properly.

grateful for any help.

Cheers

I'm having a problem trying to restore Win 8.1 after a crash. All I get is a blue screen with an error code.

I finally deduced that I was having a hardware problem with my beloved SSD (weird glitches and erratic behavior, occasional recognition errors in BIOS, and finally I/O errors when trying to restore from backup), so I pulled it out, and temporarily replaced it with a spare HDD of slightly larger size. The backup/restore program I use is Paragon, and it has worked flawlessly for me for some time, including when I migrated Win 8.0 to that SSD over a year ago. So I pulled up the last full-disk backup (from 4 weeks ago) and did a Restore to the replacement HDD, but the resulting installation will not boot. I've tried it several times, including using a different archive, and each time I get a blue screen saying "Your PC needs to be repaired", with an error code 0xc0000034.

What is this error code, and how do I go about fixing the problem? Is there some kind of issue with restoring an SSD backup to an HDD? (I know there is something about the partition alignment which may be different, for instance.) This program worked just fine in the opposite direction, meaning restoring a backup of an HDD to the SSD.

I might have been able to use the recovery media to fix the problem, if I had the current media... unfortunately, the disk I created was from prior to the 8.1 upgrade, and it won't work anymore. My mistake. But short of a clean install back to 8.0, an... Read more

A:Win 8 will not restore from backup, error code 34 at boot

I just finished an all day close encounter with my system because of the PC needs to restart message with the big smiley face. I was not able to get the error message because it was so fast.

But what I discovered was after the computer reboots the second time, it will go into a Repairing your computer and then Diagnosing your computer. After that, a Repair menu is presented and one of the options was the Advanced options, followed by Troubleshoot, followed by another Advanced Options. In this option, I found a Startup Settings option which would allow for a Safe Mode boot. So I hit restart and selected Safe Mode from the list. From there, I started msconfig.exe and selected Diagnostic Startup, and restarted.

The system booted into normal Windows, so I started msconfig.exe again and selected normal boot, and the system was working again.

I do not know exactly what caused the original problem, probably something I did while testing something... But now the system is operating normally again. I never found anything that was responsible for the problem, although the Event Viewer did have over 70 DCOM ShellHWDetection Event 1005 error messages.

My OS is Vista Ultimate. 2GB RAM. 13GB free space on C Drive. I am unable to use System Restore or Backup and Restore center. When I try to create a Restore Point (or do a backup) error message comes up 'Could not create the scheduled task for the following reason: Cannot create a file when that file already exists. (0x800700B7).' I think (not sure) that these problems came after I was infected with win32:Vitro virus. (No longer any infections showing). I think that my registry may be corrupt or files deleted. Can anyone help please?

A:Error code 0x800700B7 with System Restore and Backup problems

Hi,

Thank you for your post.

Based on my research, I would like to suggest the following:

Note: Please perform a complete system backup first. If any unexpected issue occurs, we can quickly restore the system to the current status.

1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

2. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache

3. Right click on this key and select "Export" and save the key to a Flash Drive or other removable storage device.

4. Remove the key ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows?

5. Please reboot the computer and check if the issue reoccurs. If it works, please also reconfigure the Scheduled Task for System restore in Task Scheduler.

Hope this helps. Thanks.Nicholas Li - MSFT

Hello, I am running Windows 7 on a laptop my system specifications are as follow:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo CPU T1800 @ 2.10 GHz
RAM: 4 GB
System: Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit

About three days ago I was online looking reviews for District 9 after watching it on TV and I received an insane amount of popups: http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/5615/desktoppica.png

Then this program came up and reported that:

Critical Error

System Error

The name of this program was called System Check and is disguised to look like an asset of Windows. I only figured this out after falling for it to "Scan my system". It only reported it could not 'fix' my 'problems' and I needed to register the product for it to 'fix' them.

At first I thought that my laptop was overheating so I turned it off waited for it to cool and restarted only to see the problem persisted. So then...skeptical. I googled, "System Check fake" and this was the first page to come up: http://malwaretips.com/Thread-Remove-System-Check-Fake-AV

Hi and welcome to TSF You need to have a user account with administrative privileges on your computer. To give yourself administrative privileges, you can either log on to the computer with the username "Administrator" (and its password), or use another account that you know has Administrator permissions.

To find out which permissions your user account has:

i remember back then it wouldnt be good to keep restore points as it could make viruses linger, or just was not reliable

is that still the case? or is it worth making restore points?

A:is it worth creating a restore point? for safety

Use a good A/V. I suggest Microsoft Security Essentials in conjunction with Malwarebytes.

System restore points should be made at least once a week. You will have a problem one day (we all do) and you will be glad that you have the restore points. You can set them to be made automatically via task scheduler.

Hi
I recently purchased a Dell Inspron 7559 laptop. It arrived on the 31st August. The issue I have is that the service tag is not recognised on the Dell site. I get the following message when I enter the service tag: -
There’s no match for that Service Tag or Express Service code. Retype the code or select your product below. Allow 48 hours for new devices to register on our site.
It's been well over 48 hours since the machine was registered.
Please help.
Many thanks.

A:There’s no match for that Service Tag or Express Service code

If the system was purchased from Dell, it can take a week or two for a new service tag to show up in the database.
If the system was purchased elsewhere (at retail or from a third party, Amazon, EBay etc.), contact the seller for information.

When I log into my account, my laptop shows up with the Service Tag identified and remaining warranty, but if I go to the Driver section and enter the Service Tag/Express Service Code or use Dell Detect, the site will not recognize it. Obviously I can work around this by just searching the drivers by Product, but this is not as ideal.

Hi,

New to this forum. I am using Win7 Backup and Restore, along with a Seagate external drive for my backup needs. I backup every week, and have been using it for about 1 year. I see the backups happening each week, but I've never had the need to restore anything. For the first time, I've needed to find an old version of a file. I have read the many articles about how to use the Win7 Restore utility, but when I 'search for files' using this utility for the file I'm looking for, I don't see it in any of the backups (various dates over the past 3 months). Now I'm wondering what it's backing up. The backup drive has lots of data, so it's putting something in there ;-)

So, in summary, I go through all the restore steps, but can't find the file I'm looking for. Is there some secret to using this tool? Seems straight forward...

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I periodically backup my data files which is on another hard drive than WIN7 OS so this backup is not a system image. Every time I do a backup I do a restore to a dummy partition to double check the backup was successful. Anyway, I recently tried to restore my backup from March 2014 & the backup utility is not recognizing the file. It recognizes other backups so something must be off with this particular file.

I checked & it appears all of the catalogs & zipped files are present. Is there another manner or 3rd party software I could restore this particular file? The file is just over 100 GB. I should add that I have transferred that file from one hard drive to another since last March, but transferring should not be a problem as far as I understand.

I'm running Windows 7 64x Home Premium on a Toshiba Qosmio X505 laptop. I just got it back from the warranty repair center, where they replaced the hard drive and graphics fan & heatsink, and reloaded the factory windows version. Before I sent it out for repair, I used Windows Backup to create a backup of all my files on a Toshiba casio 500GB external USB drive (I had over 300 GB of files, so it was easier to use Windows Backup than drag and drop all the files, at least at the time). Now that I have the laptop back, I'm having trouble restoring my files. When I go to Control Panel-> Backup & Restore, a message appears in the restore section, saying "Windows could not find a backup for this computer." I've tried reconnecting the drive as well as restarting my computer, but to no avail. I can see and explore the files in My Computer, so I know the hard drive is properly connected. I appreciate any help you can give.

hi, i was having a tidy up of programs and i uninstalled something to do with the parental controls (because i have no need for restrictions and didn't think it was needed). straight after that no browsers would work, torrents still download and msn still connects, but no web pages appear. i get a error message saying "the family safety service has been disabled, ask administrator to enable it, otherwise internet browsing will not work" or something along them lines. i only have the 1 admin user account and have tried everything i could think of but still cant seem to enable it at all. ive tried everything, restoring to 3 different system restore points and all sorts of other stuff too. any one got any ideas? before i wipe the whole damned thing........ lol

I accidentally closed a Google Chrome window with many tabs and for some reason I no longer have the "Reopen last closed window" option in Chrome (just reopen last closed tab).

So I went to restore the Chrome state from my tape backup, but for the first time since I started a tape rotation, Yosemite backup insisted on getting every single backup tape I ever used even though all required data was on a single tape, there didn't seem to be a way for it to make it understand all the data was on one tape. I think if I forced it to use just the correct tape, it restored to what seemed to be several weeks ago, even though a backup from the day before was on the tape.

I ended up restoring it from my second emergency backup that's done to a removable hard drive.

I clearly don't understand how to do the restore I want in Yosemite backup, any idea why it insisted on getting like 5 tapes when all data needed was on a single tape?

Thanks

My questions are on Windows 7 System Restore, Restore Points and Backups; specifically, potentially using a Backup as a Permanent Restore Point.

Here is the situation...

About a month ago, I did a complete Factory Restore on my HP desktop and returned it to it's factory condition. After removing the bloatware and performing all the necessary Windows Updates, the Factory Restore process went off without any issues.

Today, however, I needed to use System Restore due to an issue I was having with multiple monitors that I just couldn't figure out. So, I went into System Restore and found a "Date andTime" of a restore point that was right around the same time I did the Factory Restore. That Restore Point was also the oldest and since I knew it was a known & good restore point, I decided to use it. That restore point "Description" was labeled "System Image Restore Point" and the "Type" was labeled "Backup." (See Image)



I don't recall setting up or doing any backups although, between Windows Backup, Norton Backup and HP's Backup utilities some type of backup obviously happened. FYI, I hate having all those options, as I'd rather use native Windows tools. In any case, today, I used the System Restore using the System Image Restore Point labeled as Backup and, after performing a few minor Windows Updates, everything went off without a hitch and my monitor problem was solved.

Hi:

I have a Win 7 Enterprise Pro x64 laptop. Most of the files in my recycler/recycle bin mysteriously disappeared a few days back (I am guessing some OS quirk since desktop.ini also seems to have been modified then, though everything is still running smoothly).

So I want to get those files back. In my weekly backup to an external HDD using Win 7's built-in Backup and Restore I thought I have the recycler backed up:
Control Panel > Backup and Restore > Options > Change Backup Settings > Select where you want to save your backup > Where do you want to back up?: Let me choose > What do you want to back up?: Computer, Local Disk (C:, $RecycleBin is checked (my HD is partitioned and I also have the D: $RecycleBin selected here)

But when I select
Control Panel > Backup and Restore > Restore my files > Browse for files (or Browse for folders)
I get a explorer like screen which lists in the title bar,
Backup on <location> > Backup of C:
and lists all other folders I checked off in the Backup in the last paragraph but not the $RecycleBin folder.

Note that I have "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" selected and "Hide protected operating system files" unchecked in folder options (so for example ProgramData is listed in the folders in the last paragraph). I also am able to restore other files from my backup so I am rather sure the backup is not corrupted.

I have taken a full (Image ?) backup of both my laptops to an external expansion drive.

I am now trying to recover some files and folders from one of the backups.

I have some folders in the C:\ root directory and some in the C:\users\fred\applications folder.

I cannot get the restore program to select the folder in the C:\ root, and whilst I can search for the folder called Applications in the C:\users\fred the restore program will not show all the folders under the user fred when browsing.

I've tried the search, browse, folders and files etc. but Micrsoft apear to assume that all users will only use the half dozen standard document music, video folders.

Does any body know how I can make Microsoft Windows 7 restore show all the folders when browsing?

Hi everyone, I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 OS on my HP Pavilion p6330f desktop PC. Prior to installing the new Windows 8.1 tower, I copied and saved to DVD+R disks my documents, pictures, videos, etc. from Windows 7 OS. Then I tried to install them into my new Windows 8.1 OS only to discover that this new animal does not have backup and restore on Control Panel or anywhere on the Start screen. I hesitate at simply loading them up like DVDs and opening them. All I can find out is that I can use Windows Easy Transfer if I have either an external hard drive or USB port gadgets. I have neither but some of what I have saved to disks is Windows 7 Easy Transfer files and folders. So can anyone tell me how to accomplish this minor miracle w/o losing everything I have saved from my Windows 7 hard drive? Thanks a lot and have a nice Hall-o-we'en season.

Use the "Windows Easy Transfer" utility. Will restore each of your "User" accounts with all settings. Simple, quick.

When I install the new OS, I create the first "User" account "Admin" and then only use the account for maintenance. When the OS has finished the install, I load all the programs I use. Then the "Easy Transfer Wizard" restores the other user accounts from the previous OS.

Hi all!

I have xpprosp2 and an inaccessible backup file of 30 Gb. A while ago I performed my first ever backup using the xp backup utility. I thought I followed the instructions, but something screwed up.

My problem is the restoration wizard (backup utility) will not restore or give access to the library of the backup.bkf files, which it displays as a cd.

It says under the backup identification label: "No entries found". I recall that the backup utility, after backing up, asked for a floppy disk or something and as my computer does not carry any floppy drives, I skipped this step, which might have been a big mistake.

So now I have this 30 Gb file on my harddrive, which I cannot access at all.

Could someone illuminate this situation and in particular how to access the data in this file?

Thank you for sharing and a possible solution to this problem.

I have been using Acronis Rescue disk to make images of my system. It works fine, but is a pain because I have open up the case and disconnect my secondary hard drive and change from my wireless mouse to a wired mouse. So I decided to try to the built-in Backup and Restore in Win 7 Pro and backup to an external hard drive.

In preparation for backing up my system partition, I do the following:
Clean all cookies, internet files and History.
Remove all restore points except the last one.
Run Malwarebytes
Run MSE version 2
Run Ccleaner (not messing with registry)
Run Smart Defrag (lastest version)
I then reboot and hook up the external hard drive

I then go into the Control Panel and select Backup and Restore. I set where I want the image to be created and start the backup. Everything looks normal for a while.

After about 4-5 minutes, NSE shows the below:



This is the only time NSE ever detects this and it detects it every time I try to backup. I have had NSE remove it or leave it alone. It does not matter.

Eventually I get the notice that the backup did not complete sucessfully.



I check the Events log and got this:



I have been through this several times and it occurs this way every time.

After doing a restore I lost some important emails. Is there any way to get them back? Can I restore my computer to an even earlier time? I did this, I thought it was an earlier time, but it may not have been. It may have been the same restore point in fact.

If I restored my computer to an even earlier time would this restore the emails I lost?

If not is there any other way to get the emails? My backup drive is my E: drive and I tried getting the emails from there, but you know how microsoft outlook is , i just don't know how to do it. Is there anything I can do?

Maybe a system restore? I haven't tried that, although it's been a little while, I'd hate to lose something else :(. It would be worth it though to get the emails back.

you should be able to reverse the restore if its what cause the lost of emails. However, normally your emails are safe during a restore.

OK, so a couple of days ago, my HP desktop crashed and then went through the whole System Recovery loop(I couldn't login to Safe mode, wouldn't let me past the System Recovery Screen). Well I backed up the entire C drive using Backup your files in the menu. Then it shows you all the file types it will back up; i.e photos, videos, e-mails and bookmarks. So I did that to an external hard drive and it comes out to 143GB.

Then I did a factory restore to my desktop.

Now comes my problem. I've been able to copy everything from the external hard drive using RecoveryMgr.exe which opens the WIM files and saves them to my C: hard drive under System Recovery Files. However it does not seem to work when it comes to putting in my old Thunderbird e-mails, contacts and such or in Firefox to restore my bookmarks, saved passwords. Any help would be most appreciative. Thank you

A:System Backup & Restore will not restore bookmarks or e-mails

A default Firefox installation has all configuration info including bookmarks in C:\Users\your user name\appdata\roaming\ in a folder called Mozilla.

A default Thunderbird installation has all configuration info including email in C:\Users\your user name\appdata\roaming\ in a folder called Thunderbird.

If those folders got backed up, you should be able to drill down to them and restore.

I assume you used Windows Backup to do the back up. I have no idea if it will include those folders.

If those folders from your original installation still survive, you can restore by copying them to the same location on new Thunderbird/Firefox installations, over-writing the new folders created when you reinstall Thunderbird/Firefox.

It's a good practice to back up the Mozilla and Thunderbird folders periodically as a matter of course--just as you would any other data.

Hi all,
my Latitude E6540 refused to boot this morning and all automatic repair options failed. No sweat I thought and installed a Windows System Image created about a month ago. Now I proceeded to restore the missing data using DBR - I'm doing automatic daily backups - only to find out that this software apparently requires a system backup to work. The problem is that after the last update, DBR refused to accept my Toshiba usb hard drive for system backups, stating that this media device could not be used for system backups - that's why I created a Windows System Image. Nowhere does it state that DBR does not backup data at all if a different software is used for system backups. It seems to me that this is a pretty sh.... piece of software (I bought the premium version). I have learned it the hard way. From now on I will not rely anymore on Dell software for backups. Just thought I'd let everybody know.

If I create a system image and then periodically create full backups of all drives would I be able to recover the system to the last backup? I am thinking I could recover from the system image and then recover using the backup.

A:Fully restore system using Backup & Restore

Yes. Also use the previous versions feature at any time to restore a file several versions back. This works even without setting up windows backup, as restore points also create backups of your files. But windows backup will offer even more on days the backup is created. I have mine set like this:

2 internal hard drives, one is main, other is backup. Windows backup runs to it every 2 weeks and does a system image and backs up all my files. An external hard drive works well too, but then is hard to have on a schedule since you need to remember to plug it in.

I still recommend having a backup external hard drive as well, with your users folder dragged onto it just in case.

Just like time machine on apple. Of course microsoft removed this feature in windows 8, because they like to screw up good things.

Once I restored all my files I noticed the following;

1. Some files were not the latest versions, i.e. they were a month old.
2. Some subfolders simply weren't there. I had two subfolder in one of my folders and only one was resotred and not the other. I made sure that I restored from the latest backup file.

Any ideas why this happened? I have lost faith in this program and am now looking for alternate soultions.

Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.

Please give the call recording feature on my Lumia 535 by update or application. just please give this important feature. That's just one think is missed in anniversary windows 10 update. I was thought that feature is also going to be include in update but their is not provided that's very worst think. I hope you will try to give this feature in upcoming next update. Just let me know is this feature is coming or not?

A:when the call recording feature is given in lumia update(e.g.lumia 535)?

Welcome to Windows Central! We are a Windows products fan site and not an official Microsoft website so any complaints or ideas you post here will not reach Microsoft.
You have a Lumia 535 so the chances of getting the call recording feature are slim. According to the latest news, only phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile preinstalled (so in other words; when you booted up the phone it started with a version of windows 10) will get that feature.
All other phones (those that came with windows 8 or 8.1) will probably not see this feature. It also depends on hardware according to Microsoft.

I have a couple of questions related to backups.

I just performed a back up I think. Its the first time for me. I used Windows backup. Is there a way to see whats in the backup to ensure it backed up what I think it backed up?

I also performed an image backup as well using Macrium. I'm almost sure there is a way to access data (docs, pics, etc..) in the image. I think you mount the image using Macrium and then you have access to the data.

I need to understand this better. I am about to do a clean install and need to make sure I'm covered on the data. This data cannot be replaced. I will show the PC owner how to set up backups since she has never done it.

A:How to check a backup?

Regardless of what you do, you can't ever be positive images or backups will work in the clutch.

Macrium and Windows Backup aren't the best tools for sheer data backup. I'd supplement them with at least one copy done by simple drag and drop to a totally different drive.

Or use an application dedicated to nothing but data backup. There are many, paid and free.

Or do both. I do.

You should be able to double-click your Macrium image file and drill down anywhere in it to the pictures of your cat and copy them anywhere you want---just like in Windows Explorer.

The best use of Macrium is to back up your operating system and installed applications, as opposed to data.

The first and foremost thing you need to understand about Macrium is the making and correct use of the rescue disk or flash drive. If it won't boot your PC, you are wasting your time. If you don't know what to do after it does boot your PC, you may be in for some rude surprises when you get in a jam.

If your data is on C, then of course it will back up everything on C, but in an image file. Which leaves open a point of failure--a complication.

I assume you know you have to back up System Reserved as well, assuming that's where your boot files live. If you don't have a System Reserved partition, the boot files are elsewhere---possibly on C.

I have few clues about Windows Backup other than it's clumsy and finicky enough that I avoid it.

I have a form with three check boxes on it. I would like a button to open a report with the boxes that are checked as the where condition.

What is the syntax for checking if a box is checked in VBA, I tried If( chkbox = True) but that does not work
Also
I thought using the DoCmd.OpenReport was appropriate and then in the WHERE condition using a string that is defined by the checkboxes i.e. Dim "Stringname As String then using and if statement to add the values of the checked boxes to the string.

Any ideas.

Thanks,
Mike

Hey guys,

After my PC buggered up and I lost some files, I'm looking at possibly using an online backup service to back up my photos and other personal files.

I want to use an online service as I think it will be easier, and wont require me to buy any extra hardware.

So, what ones do you guys recomend? I want a service where I can tell it to back up specific folders, and possibly do this constantly in the background, so my backups are never out of date.

Any advice always appreciated!

Thanks, Dean

I'm having a hell of a game with my DVD backups I sat down the other night to watch lord for the rings and it just stopped 1/4 way thou. I was as if it was some sort of buffering problem or sudden memory interruption. Well its seemed to do it on all my DVD backups. + often now when righting to DVD I will get redundancy error + often DVD in the machine wont even be recognised as being there. I got rid of service pack 2 and every thing is running fine know "I think"
God pleez someone help! What the hell is going on?
 

A:DVD backup + service pack2

I waited literally half a year or more for the bugs to 1st be worked out with sp2, before I just recently (in past month or so) finally downloaded it.

I have had so many problems since I got it. Most all of the problems however, have to do with Burning CD's. Something went wrong somewhere. Some wrong setting or ????

Anyway, I didn't know you could get rid of sp2 once downloaded. You can't go back to the exact settings, etc. you had with sp1, can you?

My Restore point is long gone, so I could not go back & get rid of it that way. Is there another? Thanks!

Hi,

I have some C++ code that I'm developing that I need to run as a windows service. (I think)

First it might make sense to explain this a bit--maybe someone has a better idea on how to implement this.
I need an application that will read data from a specific file ( YYMMDD(-1).txt That is to say, a text file named with the above date format, but with yesterday's date) everyday at noon.

I need it to check the file for certain conditions (the conditions are a result of certain things the operator needs to be doing). If the conditions are not there, I need it to generate a plain text email to a certain email address.

I figure the way to do this is to write a program and run it as a windows service--so it is always running, wakes up at noon, does it's business and sleeps until the next day at noon. If anyone has a better idea, I would love to hear it.
With that said, in terms of getting C++ code to run as a windows service, can someone give me some direction in finding good info to help with this? It's been a few years since the last time I did a lot of programming, but I think I can handle the C++ code to do what I want. I just have no idea how to setup a windows service. I have searched the internet and read some things, but I haven't hit the ground runnning yet.

These two articles were very informatitive:

I run some classes for seniors, one of which is on backing up.

For Windows 7 backup program we look at at the initial setting up.

For subsequent classes I would like to repeat this, but have not found a way to go back to the condition of backup not yet set.

Is there a way to do this?

You could use the tutorial below to reset Windows Backup back to default conditions to not being setup again.
