Best way to backup pictures?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My brothers laptop always messes up every 6th months and he always has a ton of pictures on it

is there a program that can back them all up or have it so it backs them up all online in the background

Does Ubuntu One do this?

You can use my backup guide using robocopy. I use it all the time and it is the fastest way for me to back up my pics.

Link in the sig

You can also use freefilesync and use the mirror option

Dude... You need to actually read the guide -_-

I fell bad that you lost your data, but you should have learn what everything does first. I have links and info stating that.

Um yes I read the guide, didnt say anything about deleting existing files on your storage drive just because they werent also on your boot drive.

you can't simply copy C: over to the storage drive, it deletes anything on the storage drive that doesn't match the letter or directory of C:, so because it wanted to copy Desktop it deleted Daniel media files since it wasn't on C: ...

It was like "Oh this wasn't on the boot drive, delete it instead of just leaving the folder alone"

Thank good I stopped it before it reached the "V" letter for video media or it would have deleted it for no real reason

You other program freefilesync also sucked btw. Basically stop recommending something stuff unless u have gone through it totally and know the ends and out (which is obvious from the guide you havent no offence)

Like I said you don't know how to use it, you can't simply backup the c: drive. You can only back up folders and files. Aka. Your pictures folder. If you want to back up the c: drive you need to create a system image, but that doesn't apply to your situation. You need to set up your destinations properly.

I have been using both ways for a while now and never had an issue. Both ways back up data faster than any other I have used. Many others have had great success with them as well.

Don't blame the software for user error, it does not suck. wink.gif

I will, if you want I will set everything up for you the way you want it to back everything up. I will be home in a hour or less and we can use teamviewer so I can set it up.

You can test dumby folders and files up too before you try it.
