5276  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Paragon Drive Backup 9 Special Edition For Free! on: April 08, 2009, 07:38:29 AM
I bought Drive Backup 8.5 Personal for $50. Got maybe one minor update.  Now they come out with 9.0 Personal with folder exclusion features for $40.  No discount for me with version 8.5

wow, that sounds really bad - no upgrade pricing tellme
surely there are other friendlier companies out there making decent imaging software ... (although I know what it's like when you have something that just works)

Haha I play futsal, headers rarely occur.

looks like a good game Coeluh (did a search on youtube), I hadnt come across it before - I know people who play "indoor football" (soccer) not sure, maybe that's the same? 
is there any videos about it you'd recommend?

Aside from OS considerations, registry etc.. if you have a gulf between executables and data on the same physical drive you can get thrashing.
you're making me rethink my organisation smiley to this:-

Disk 1
# OS Partition
# Backup of Disk 2

Disk 2
# Page/Temp partition
# Data
# Images of OS partition

seeing as (good) backup involves seperate disks or seperate partitions at least - why shouldn't backup go on the OS drive if the space is there.
I know in an ideal world it should be on a third disk - which would really mean getting a smaller disk for OS - have to check see how many drives I can add to this machine ...
although I guess the really ideally could be

Drive: OS
Drive: Data
Drive: Page/Temp
Drive: Backup)                           

but that's going to wait a while Wink

summary of a thread in Radified forum (a thread which mysteriously disappeared so I'll post it here)

Here's how I partitioned a new pc, late 2007.
I include all the details mainly because I got very detailed instructions on using GParted (on a Parted Magic CD) which I post below in the spoiler - they got me - who hadnt a clue about this type of thing through it, so ...
smiley

2 x 320 GB drives (new, empty drives)
HDD 1
C: OS/programmes (Primary active: 29GB)
[D: Hidden Primary - 5GB original idea was for possible second stripped down XP install. I haven't used it..]
E: Some app related Data, Portable installs, Downloads, etc. (50 GB)
F: Data (the rest = 215 GB)
HDD 2 (no primary partitions)
G: TEMP Folders & Paging file (FAT32: 19 GB)
H: Photos etc (181 GB)
I: For Backup & OS.images (the rest = 97 GB)

Sizes are a bit odd in GB's cause originally set in MB's - but also a certain amount gets "lost" somewhere - of course it may even be lost already when you get the disk in the first place, I cant rmemeber any more)

Here's the specific instructions I got (from Brian at the Radified forum: copy of same in spoiler)
These were for GParted 0.3.4 on a Parted Magic 1.8. CD

8. so if I had the correct transformer could I simply hook up a 12v battery to my computer tellme no, I guess not - you'ld have to have some way of getting it to kick in. I dont understand how that is more efficient energywise than a UPS but probably cheaper?
Re cooling - I dont know where they have their servers but somewhere cold would seem logical (Alaska?!)

10. I thought for a minute that the employee was the serial killer ... seems odd too that one person would be connected to all these cotton buds - but I presume it's those medical ones on a long thin piece of wood, so maybe not quite so odd

I really hate the default xp theme so I removed that
(I know it wasnt necessary to actually remove it but I enjoyed that)
Grin Grin Grin

Hmm seems those with XP put on a Vista lookin' theme, but if you have Vista you put on a W7 lookin' theme.  Guess if you get W7 Ultimate you have to put on a Windows 3.1 theme?  smiley

actually ...  undecided   I was always very tempted to try a vista look, but not enough to go to all the effort. I now use Classic Look

and
the Tango Patcher [edit] which replaces default system icons [/edit] and am quite happy with the look ... (really though, I wish I had been into computers when they had black backgrounds and glowing green type...)

What kind of tweaks?  Grin

well I removed Windows Media Player (you can remove IE as well, but that seems risky to me)
I really hate the default xp theme so I removed that (I know it wasnt necessary to actually remove it but I enjoyed that smiley)
I set it up so as on start that it would logon directly (probably not secure but ..)

I cant remember the rest ... I thought I had some helpful links saved in Surfulater but no, dont seem to ...

apologies Paul, and to all for getting bogged down with this here
sometimes I should be more .. definite (? or something) - it really wasnt any big deal but butter put it to bed now !!!

1) mousers post

If we do go with this.. then it may make sense to try to get one person willing to volunteer to read all of the threads and post occasional summaries of people's different methods, and encourage everyone participating, etc.

2) your reply

The summary part I can also do if no one minds me being heavily critical though I can just keep that part of the post to myself.

Encouragement, no, not me.
-
3) I read that as "no, I dont do encouragement" - me, I guess I see e.g. constructive criticism as encouragement, hence the posts about criticism and encouragement etc. (and maybe I was trying to encourage you to be encouraging lol)

That was it, no big deal really, hope that buries it

Hmm...that could be a failure of communication on my part. I don't recall saying anything like that. At least even if I do, I've never felt encouragement to be something I'm against and won't do.
...
re-read your reply to mouser's post
If we do go with this.. then it may make sense to try to get one person willing to volunteer to read all of the threads and post occasional summaries of people's different methods, and encourage everyone participating, etc.

you could re-read my last couple of posts again as well in connection with your "criticism = insulting" interpretation - I really dont see where you got that one (I'm looking forward to the D.Allen video though, but will have to wait till later)

This may be mentioned elsewhere but I didnt notice it in the first post:
it looks like you have to uninstall older versions (well mine was around the 0.9.0.0) before reinstalling
It appeared to install but only really worked after I uninstalled the older version

thanks thumbs up

I missed this, didn't I embarassed

Isn't SP3 an updated SP2?

Then you'd first need a CD with SP3 integrated?

I'm not sure lol
I just wanted to point out that you need an install disc with SP2 (minimum) already and then ryanvm slipstreams the updates
I see they have a Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack as well

can you tweak the install as well ? - did you indulge there?
5296  Special User Sections / The Getting Organized Experiment of 2009 / Re: The Getting Organized Experiment of 2009 - Preliminary Planning on: April 03, 2009, 05:56:03 AM
I also don't know what you meant by encouragement.
what I said:
criticism doesnt rule out encouragement (I only said it because you were saying something along the lines that you didnt do encouragement but did do criticism)
And naturally: encouragement doesnt rule out criticism ...
5297  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: OS Re-install Tips? on: April 03, 2009, 05:24:03 AM
Have you tried Nlite? is a program that can help you put drivers, updates and hotfixes into a Windows XP installation disc. It can save lot's of installation time if used corectly.

I did a slipstreamed CD install last time using http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/

It worked great and I didn't have to spend hours updating XP!

Takes a bit of learning but it's not Brain Surgery... cheesy

Just in case: I think you need an XP SP2 install disk for that
There was a download link for an XP SP3 iso somewhere here a while back - I dont know could one use that?

You can download a full ISO version of Windows XP SP3 Pro and Home.

See http://www.tipandtrick.ne...plus-via-http-or-torrent/

which has all the full ISO versions (and the links are to the Microsoft download site so they are safe - sorry I take that back all the links have now changed and they are at various other sites including torrents. The original checksums are given though so you can check the download is the original unaltered MS ISO file).

There is another thread with other references to SP3 downloads at http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=12466.0

Paul,
I take your point about criticism, but I'll ask:
does being critical rule out being encouraging? Criticism, if delivered fairly, can obviously be something helpful - as you say if Allen was more specific in his criticism we would now know a bit more about the topic. I'm not trying to force you into an encouraging role !! just throwing it out there

I dont think we're trying to change the world of productivity or whatever it's called. You keep focusing on that world and it's problems. Again, I'm not saying all that stuff isnt important - I'm just saying it's only one aspect.

I'm curious - what is it you would want from a GOE ?
I mean - not what you dont want !
(apologies if you've said that somewhere already & I've missed it - just redirect me!)
5299  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: OS Re-install Tips? on: April 02, 2009, 04:08:09 PM
Might be worth a try, either as a replacement for MozBackup - or a...er..backup to it? Grin

why all the big fuss about thunderbird mail undecided
copy the profile folder, restore as in the link I gave above. seems the easiest and most secure to me ...

My criticism of it though is that the concept is turning a month only project into a productivity forum and that can confuse and stress people posting because no one knows if it's just a productivity forum or a monthly exercise so even their trial of systems might feel like another make it a habit in 30 days or your money back.

well let's make it an open-ended ongoing thing/forum - I mean it might not last anyway but why limit it?

how about we look at things this way:
if you have a criticism, you/we look for a simple solution -> GOE 2009

I dont really have time (or interest?) in theoretical or in whether things were done good or bad, then or now - I realise straight away that that's a weakness .... but one can get bogged down in all that stuff just as much as any other (GOE, etc.) stuff

currently I'm thinking: I'm going to try and do my own personal GOE 2009 - I may or may not post here
[and I make no commitments as to when I'll begin it (lol)]

How about this
-
what would YOU [anyone] want from a "Getting Organised Experiment" ??
(Just in case: saying 'getting organised' doesnt qualify as a good enough answer)
