Thank you Barry for the insight

Since I noticed that I have EFI booting I knew that I was up to learn new ways of booting and now I’m searching to find the most suitable way

Have a great weekend

I only have my new Asus K750JN laptop for 3 days now so there are a lot of subjects I don’t know about it including windows 8.1x64. I just went to the BIOS and from what I understand there is no option to boot from a DVD or USB. My BIOS is Aptio Setup Utility, 2012 American Megatrends There is a uti...

Backing up windows 8.1 system files

My Asus laptop came with no DVDs and I try to make a system bootable DVD(s). AISbackup gave me 9 choices and I have a hard time to decide which one to use. The 8th choice was “Hidden Disk drive \\\?\Volume {26f263.....} Recommended for disk recovery of data on this hidden volume. This is a Boot Volu...

Got it working again. I uninstall it, reboot, re install it, reboot, run it once, close the program and then I right click on the key file and selected Open.

Now all is ok again, thanks

Thanks for the reply, the only thing wrong I did was not to let the program run at least once. Now all is fine

Good day I’m making preparations to install Windows 8.1 on my desktop and last night I made a successful complete C:\ backup with AISBackup to my external USB HD and was able to boot from it. The C:\ is a SATA 240 GB HD and includes XP Home plus various other utilities. I also have two other HD on t...

I was told in another forum to consider an image backup and since I never noticed in AISBackup the image word I thought to ask.

Thanks for the help Barry

Image Backup

Had to re install Vista and I found the worst part of the re install was to get all the MS Updates especially Service Pack 1 & 2 which each one is about 450MB. I'm now up to 220 updates installed and more are on the way. I was told that a regular back up does not include updates but if I make an Ima...

External USB Boot Menu

A couple weeks ago or so I used the AISB “Tools / Create AISB Restore CD or USB External Flash Drive” to make my external 1.5TB USB hard disk bootable and it did a nice job. Now at boot time I had a menu with 2 entries: Windows Vista Home Premium Seagate USB External Hard Disk The Windows Vista menu...

All is clear now Barry, much appreciated

AISB made my 1.5TB USB hard disk bootable in a few seconds + I now have a nice interface to manage my system backups if and when a disaster occurs

I tried this morning to do a restore and after booting to AISB GUI, I clicked on the restore list and there was nothing on the list.

Booting back to Vista, AISB shows the backup I did yesterday (Copy System Disk(C)).

Any reason this backup was not on the list to restore?
