Why is very hard to make an backup tool ...

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi Flo!!! I understand the problems you explained to create an "ghost backup" tool (like as N*rt*n Gh*st)...

First of all sorry for my very bad english :cry: , but i'm from Andorra, and here people speaks Catalan (Català) and Spanish also!!!

In Windows, always are running dll's, system programs, virtual memory, swap files, etc... and IS IMPOSSIBLE make a GOOD System Backup running Windows :!: ... The best solution for do this, is work under MS-DOS. In MS-DOS you can make a Backup from partition, or Hard Disc, for exemple and restore it if the O.S. crashes, but we need a MS-DOS capable to read FAT & NTFS partitions (in windows) or Swap & ext2 -ext3 (in Linux)...

I know a freeware programs to make this but need another partition to make a "Backup dump" because not have implemented an extra option called "Burn Backup in CD" ... Is possible to create an "SDK" to make this possible??? Meanwhile, people can make a "files backup" burning CD's with most important files throught CD BurnerXP Pro :) (but if system crashes, approximately about a day or two is the time required for reinstall the O.S. and all applications, and ALWAYS loose a very important programs & files :( )...

Well, after the new version 3 of CDBXPP this won't be that difficult anymore, so an integrated buckup function could be possible.

Please do not excuse for your bad english all the time :-D

I'll let you know if it is that bad that I don't understand ;-)

Can't tell you (although I have my thoughts), so wait for Stefan or Fredrik answering you. :wink2:

outside of the backing up thats talked about above.

i'd like to see better templating. so a SOHO can make a template of folders to be burnt, and using windows assoc. a user can double click the template and have CDBXP start and import any changed (or otherwise specified) files to the multisession cd. if its full auto erase and start fresh with all files in template. maybe a bit of compression if it gets on a roll.

so this is no burner changes, just interaction and assocation.

i also find it nasty not being able to see the files i have imported from a previous session. this should be fixed. this makes it easy to add and delete files in the existing folder structure.

seems alot of basics are still missing.

plus, if you start making SOHO happy, you might get bigger donations. as these are the guys with a bit of cash, but not enough to want to save all they can.

Yes, would be useful

This is not a bug, this is a missing feature which will be implemented in version 3 (still guys left who don't read global announcements?).

seems alot of basics are still missing.

I don't know what you think is "basic" for a free application, but I can tell you that CDBXPP version 3 will have all those "basics".
