I use ‘Cobian Backup’ — lightweight and runs as a service. http://www.cobiansoft.com/index.htm

 

Here are the options I like best:

 

SyncBack[1] if stuff is large and on you want it on another local HDD

 

 

Roadkil’s Unstoppable Copier – througha task is easy enough.

How to get crashplan to backup to network share / unraid / mapped drive

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — heredago @ 21:10

In addition to backing up to the paid crashplan central, I want my stuff to get backed up locally on my unraid network share:

“After much screwing around I was finally able to get Crashplan to back up to the unRAID box via Network Share.

Out of the box Crashplan won’t back up to a network share saying it doesn’t have the correct permissions.  Here’s how I got around it.

1)  Create a folder somewhere.  I created mine at c:\crashPlanBackup
2)  Open up CrashPlan and go to the Destinations tab of the ap.  Click “Folders” and find your new folder. Leave CrashPlan running and the Destinations tab open.
3)  Delete the new folder you created and just pointed CrashPlan to.
4)  Open a command prompt and create a hardlink to the network share.    Type mklink /h “c:\crashPlanBackup” \\tower\sharename  –  Hit return.  You can also mount the share so it has a drive letter and do it this way mklink /h “c:\crashPlanBackup” s:  if I remember correctly. (some people will want to use the /D switch (instead of /H) on the mklink if they get the “Local NTFS volumes are required to complete the operation” error

You’ve now tricked CrashPlan into thinking that the folder you added was a local folder and it’s not.  Working like champ!  For as little as $3 more per month  you can have your data back up to their cloud service as well.  Redundancy!  I imagine there would be no reason you couldn’t trick CrashPlan into backing up your network shares to their cloud and really make them wonder if $3 a month for unlimited storage was a good idea :)

If you really want to format the win7 partition, one way is boot into your ubuntu installation, run GParted, click win7 partition, format it.
ubuntu partition and MBR will be intact.

In the penalty box
Super Grub will fix the grub.http://www.supergrubdisk.org/

And use osloader if you have any troubles loading windows.

You should have been able to “repair” the existing installation using the windows installer disk.

You should also have been able to “install windows” without formatting the partition, installing from scratch, but leaving your previous (whatever replaced) c:\documents and settings\ intact.
