Microsoft Surface Book 2 15in review
I have a problem in that I cannot backup my sister's hard drive to a drive on my computer. Her computer only has a 4GB hard drive, 2.5GB of which is take up by Windows 98SE and her programs. I've tried to create a partition on the drive to hold the backup which I would then move to my hard drive later, but there isn't enough room for me to do that.
So I tried to use Drive Image 6 to backup the OS partition to my network drive, ran through the wizard to set the location which appaeared to work, but when I set the backup to run, I was told that I would have to boot into DOS and at that point, I found out that I couldn't use the network drive to backup to. Her computer doesn't have a CDRW either.
I am now stuck as to how I am going to backup her hard drive. Any information/ideas would be welcomed.
Thanks very much
Why not put your CD-RW in her pc or put her HDD in your pc?
leo49, unfortunately DI7 only works for NT/2000/XP as I'm sure you are aware. I have managed to find an option in Drive Image 6 though that allows you to create either 2 floppy disks or modify the file that is used when DI goes into DOS, to allow a network to be used. However, at the minute, I am having trouble getting it to work. I keep getting told that DI cannot find the specified drive/location and I don't know why!!! Everything is set up as it should be but DI isn't playing ball and I can't find anything relatively helpful on the net either. The help file is little use either.
MH, I did think about that but I don't have the drivers for the CDRW (it came with the PC which has since been formatted umpteen times, not all deliberately!) and I would rather keep my hard drive out of her computer for two reasons:
1. I don't want anything happening to it
2. I'm not sure if the motherboard would be able to see all of it as it is a relatively old computer.
Thanks for the replies all the same.
If anyone has any more info on getting DI6 to backup over a network (and I know it can be done, click here and read the second paragraph next to the image of DI6).
