But, as you can see, shadow copies can get you out of crappy situations smile.gif

are you kidding me ?sniper.gif

so if your PC crashes, and youre backup is inside your harddrive or your slave harddrive, and youre files get corrupted as well as your OS.

what's shadow copies going to do for you buddy? biggrin.gif

if you didn't comprehend, me and the other user in my thread were stating we prefer to do backups on our own. not leave windows to handle anything for OBVIOUS reasons. Since I deleted my BACKUP before transferring it off my slave and did multiple delete/zip/paste/move and wrote many things to disk, i lost that compressed file that i deleted by error.

You do not understand my question. Please take a minute and read more carefully:

You make your own backups and have shadow copies Disabled = you lost a file.
You make your own backups and leave shadow copies Enabled = you're prepared for every situation and never lose a file again.

Comprende?

I'm not saying "Ditch your backups and use shadow copies only", doh! Really, be more careful when reading, that's uber-annoying. wth.gif
I'm saying "use both and you get the benefits of both".

You are the living proof that making your own backups is not a perfect solution, because you lost your file!
So again - WHY did you disable shadow copies? It doesn't stand in your way of making your own backups, so no reason to disable it.

I didnt know you could do this....
So cool...

Still running dedicated backups though.
I dont know why they have to be mutually exclusive. biggrin.gif

maybe i didnt post enough information on my situation. when you reformat, and this instantly happens. shadow copies isnt there to help you

maybe you didnt understand what i was saying

Please take a minute and read more carefully:
if your hard drive gets damaged, shadow copies doesnt do crap. the only thing that does anything is an external or separate backup tongue.gif

Your hard drive was not damaged. Clearly your EXAMPLE is a more extreme case of data loss. Your actual situation would have been fine if you would have never turned shadow copies off.

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.

"those who don't deserve to lose their files. smiley face"
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.
