Crash during validate

Hi Martin Unfortunately the error is not helping much. Please send the job files for this backup using the Help / Bug Report option to see if sense can be made of the error. The last few releases of AISBackup the job files are backed up to zip files and these may be used to replace any corrupt job f...

Corrupt backup

The backup may have got corrupted, but I cannot say why, there are many backups here that run without problems for several years. For several releases of AISBackup the backup control files from the previous backup are copied to a zip file that ends with .’previous.zip’. Remove the backup again (reta...

vmem file fix

The problem was owing to the file size being exactly a multiple of 4GB.

I have uploaded the fix to the pre-release / beta page here:

vmem file

I can confirm that the file you sent me fails to backup - I've yet to figure out why.

USB Mouse

The blue USB 3 ports are not supported by the boot media, this may be the problem with the mouse maybe?

Cloning boot drive to SSD

I have cloned a HD boot drive to SSD many times, if you are replacing the HD ensure that you also clone the boot partition (if applicable). When you boot using the SSD it will boot as the 'C' drive and the existing backup jobs will only see new and updated files on this drive when re-running and exi...

Restore

I am please to hear that this worked out.

I am still going to look into repairing or making the boot files in the 'C' drive if the boot partition is missing or is corrupt.

Dedup

DeDup is new to me, however it may create hard links to the actual data; you will still need to backup the version of the file that holds the data (as well as the hard link itself).

Boot files

Was the boot partition backed up on the old disk or have you still got access to the old disk? This could be from another Server 2008, indeed the boot files from Windows 7 or 8 may work. It may also be possible to extract the boot files from Server 2008 on the 'C' drive to itself (by copying to the ...

GPT restore problem

Hi Mart Thanks for the information, I should have enough now to recreate the problem. This may be of interest, but I want to upgrade a GPT booting PC to an SSD in any case. I think you mean EFI boot partition rather than GPT? and as you stated I also think that it should be allowed to create an EFI ...

Transfer to SSD

There is a lot more information about this issue in our email conversation August 2013 subject "Drives over 2TB". Of special note is the following I wrote on 18/8: The problem occurs when the destination partitions haven't been assigned drive letters. AISBackup creates folders on the correct destin...

Installed BCD on a replacement tablet / PC

If you were to restore the 'C' partition following a disaster you would be able to use the BCD that ships with the new tablet. The BCD only holds the boot files. However I would recommend making the restore to a new partition initially and making a dual boot system, but this may prove difficult if d...

VSS

I guess VSS started correctly to backup the open exclusive files on the other partitions, especially the 'C' drive. Actually it's not possible to use VSS on the FAT32 EFI partition and AISBackup works on desktop / laptop PCs when backing up the BDC files AISBackup uses BDCEdit to back up the BDC dat...
