Having both options as potential backups is a form of redundancy. There is no reason to have it off. Seems to me you're trying to justify your decision to turn the feature off. There is no justification. Ronnin makes complete sense. Don't attack other people's help.
turned shadow copies off?
for you to assume i turned it off when the version of windows i installed has it off automatically just makes you more arrogant and hard headed than i am.
i was never attacking anyone, but you sir with 200 posts indeed are attacking me.
Ronnin doesn't make complete sense. shadow copies is not a form of backing up files, wont and will never be.
again my statement is fact, shadow copies doesnt save damaged hard drives <-- which has nothing to do with my situation, just a statement you cant swallow
if you were more active in this community, i might take you serious but for some person who barely posts to come chime in his 2 cents, you might as well have kept your opinion to yourself. it's unconstructive, you obviously didn't read the thread, and you just feel like giving me your opinion
i made a clear point, shadow copies doesnt save damaged hard drives

i was talking to blameless and that is why i gave the example of shadow copies being useless, in which if you don't make an external backup , it is.
there is no redundancy, if you DONT make an external backup, you are screwed.

this type of low grade information and insult is looked down upon, why?
because a user condecends on others as if shadow copies will save your computer.
luckily a user like ronnin will enable shadow copies, his hard drive will crash, and then he wont have any other form of backup to restore his data
good job hatrix, i'd like to congratulate you for not reading the thread and not posting usefull information.
as you can see my point was crystal cut clear. shadow copies doesn't save hard drives.
my case has nothing to do with this FACT. i reformatted and the first thing i did was extract/and compress files from the slave in which after time i realized i deleted one of the wrong rars.
shadow copies would still not have saved me.Edited by INCREDIBLEHULK - 6/22/13 at 6:02pm
