Are you saying you're trying to boot your system when both the original and clone are connected?

Yes, that's what I was attempting: go into boot options and select D instead of C (where D is the drive to which the clone was made). D is a spare HDD connected through a USB-connected dual-bay enclosure.

I use EaseUS backup with preOS enabled. It hasn't failed me yet. But it would be a good feeling to have another Win boot disk.

Also, anyone heard of or used a Bounceback Drive. Here's one on Amazon:

CMS drive

The claim is:

The BounceBack Drive is the ultimate backup and recovery solution. This powerful system creates a duplicate copy of your computer's hard drive so that if your internal hard drive is corrupted or damaged, you can startup (boot) directly from your BounceBack Drive...

I've successfully cloned my active partition "Windows 7 OS" using Drive Image XML, EaseUS Todo Backup's clone utility, etc., but none of the clones are actually bootable (go into BIOS and choose the newly cloned drive as boot disk). Someone told me Casper truly does create bootable cloned operating disk. Anyone know?

Thanks for those hyperlinks, 4wd. I'm a long-time user of Faststone Capture, but I'm gonna give Greenshot a go...
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / set disk space quota for users WebDAVing into a local disk via Tonido? on: July 23, 2015, 09:48:12 PM
I have a few friends/family who backup important documents and the occasional system image to one of my hard disks via Tonido. Anyone know if there is a way, from within Tonido, to set a quota on a particular guest user's assigned share? Can't find anything about this via search, and I'm thinking you have to upgrade to the paid FileCloud for this feature. If that's the case, I was thinking of whipping up a quick directory watching app in C# that would run in the background and email friends and family when they're approaching their quota. It would, of course, email me as well.

LOL, x16wda  Grin

How many gigs of RAM you running?

Curious about FolderCache and PastePath...

Yep. Fixed my title.

CarotDAV is growing on me. One single interface, and in a few clicks I've uploaded my important directories from work and home projects to: OneDrive, GoogleDrive, Box.com, Dropbox, etc.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: NAS software and limitations on: July 21, 2015, 09:15:38 PM
Tonido is sufficient for my needs.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ooh, CarotDAV portable ROCKS! on: July 18, 2015, 07:03:33 PM
Note: I'm connected at 100Mbps. Program seems to average upload speed of about 4 Mb/minute for me; but it's steady and has been running for several hours without a problem. It doesn't seem to slow/affect my other internet activities.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ooh, CarotDAV portable ROCKS! on: July 18, 2015, 05:41:08 PM
Here's a screenshot. It's uploading a 7+ GB directory with no hiccups...

15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ooh, CarotDAV portable ROCKS! on: July 18, 2015, 01:25:27 PM
Yeah, I don't think it can be used as a server. But yes, it does permit you to access Box, GDrive, Dropbox, etc., as if they were local folders and files.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ooh, CarotDAV portable ROCKS! on: July 18, 2015, 12:55:35 PM
^ Dunno, super.

I'm using it to update contents of Dropbox and Box.com, as well as to access two FTP accounts. Works well.

Just discovered this app, CarotDAV. Single interface from which I can access my ftp accounts, Box.com, Google drive, etc., etc. Nice!

^ Yep, that is gonna be sweet.

Instead of giving in to the temptation to buy the 4.0GHz 32GB-RAM powerhouse, I settled for an incremental improvement: upgraded RAM from 6 to 8 GB, and moved the OS to a 120 GB SSD.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How do you resist buying ever more powerful PCs? on: July 14, 2015, 12:48:56 PM
Yeah, I think I'm doing the same sort of justification, mouser. The PC I've got is functioning just fine, and more than ample for my needs. But, I make a few hundred extra bucks a month proofreading, and I think to myself, "Go ahead. Treat yourself. You deserve it..."
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / How do you resist buying ever more powerful PCs? on: July 14, 2015, 10:26:26 AM
So, recently I purchased my stepson a serviceable refurbished Win7 machine. And while shopping, naturally I find a unit or two that I sure wouldn't mind having:

Intel Quad Core 3.4GHz i7-4770 32GB 1TB SSD + 2 x 3TB 7200rpm RAID 1 HDD Windows 7 Professional...

Thing is, my current setup (Win 7 Ultimate, 6 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD with a 2.8 GHz cpu) is more than adequate for my simple needs: a bit of programming, web browsing, proofreading for pay, emailing.

So I've learned over the years to resist these urges and usually in 2-4 weeks they pass. How do you deal with them?

Thanks, Deozaan. I'm pushing my proofreading manuscripts to BitBucket right now...

Thanks, Shades!
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Question re archiving/retrieving directories and subdirs using Mercurial on: July 11, 2015, 03:10:48 PM
I was thinking of using Mercurial to keep revision history of the various manuscripts I proofread for various Kindle authors. The image below shows a screen shot of the main directory, /manuscripts/ and the /.hg/ repository that I created for it with TortoiseHg Workbench. Here's my question. If I zipped that /.hg/ repo directory and uploaded it to my website, and then... say... a year later my hard drive crashed (assume I don't have backups on removable media), could I (a) download and unzip the /.hg/ repo and, (b) using cmdline or Workbench, reconstitute the original directories inside /manuscript/ ? If so, any brief explanation about how?

Also, it's worth mentioning that you can setup Free File Sync to backup files or directories/subdirectories to an FTP server. Not well-documented, though.
