Windows 7 is a Home-Run!

The recently released Windows 7 has proven to be the platform the failed Windows Vista should have been.   The product makes older PCs run like new, preserving your investment in hardware.

If you haven’t yet experienced it, let us give you a test drive.  In addition to maximizing your PC’s speed, it offers other great features like easier plug-and-play printer support, jump-lists for quick access to frequently used documents and websites, and network image backup to make disaster recovery from hard drive failure a snap!  Demos and questions about Windows 7 are welcomed.

EwT TechTips:  Backup, Backup, Backup

You’ve probably heard our preaching on this topic, and we do our very best to check our customer’s backups.  In a disaster, you can never have enough of them.  File backups are backups of individual files, while “image” backups restore the entire computer back to a point in time.  Both are important and image backup is a part of Windows 7 and the previous version, Windows Vista.

Here are some best practices:

·         Perform file AND image backups if possible to have the most recovery options available.

·         Make sure you have at least one full backup “off-site”.  We perform this function for many of our customers as part of our weekly/bi-weekly service.

·         If you use hard drives or USB memory drives, rotate them.

·         If using Vista or Windows 7, ALSO periodically perform an “image” backup of your entire computer to a pocket hard drive (select “Backup and Restore” in Control Panel—follow the wizard).  Note that most USB drives don’t have the capacity for a total system image.

Simple File Backups – Here’s how…

1.     Plug in your USB memory drive or external hard drive

2.     Open the folder containing your files (My Documents, etc.)

3.     Select the desired file and then right-click, Send to, select the letter of your USB drive. 
(You may also select several files and use Copy-Paste with files as you would text).

Total System Image Backups using Windows 7 or Vista Business – Here’s how…

1.     Plug in your external hard drive (USB drives are typically not large enough)

2.     From the search box on the Start button, type backup and select “Backup and Restore”

3.     Select “Image backup” in Windows 7, or select the “Complete Image” option in Windows Vista
(Business or Ultimate versions only).
