So, you'd recommend Stellar Phoenix to others? Have you got a link to it? Most of the problems with these utilities is their ability to be understood by the people using them.
Even the one's that I mentioned are a bit "cryptic"
Relettering your drives is easy - but saving what you've got makes it more difficult. What do the drives say now? (don't forget to include the unpartitioned and/or recovered partitions).
And, is now a good time to talk backup strategies? I hope so, 'cuz I've researched the heck out of this and am really ready to talk!
I always forget/neglect to backup - so the only good backup solution is an automatic one (for me). This requires plenty of disk space (I haven't been able to get the CD based one's to work for me) - and is actually very easy to do.
Here's the scenario at my wife's office: They used to manually backup the data directory to a CD every day - that's 300 CD's a year just laying around the office.
So, here's what I did using a free backup utility called SyncBackSE (I liked it so much that I bought the pay-for version):
1) Backup the data to another drive on the same computer. This rotates itself on a weekly basis.
2) Backup the data to another computer on the LAN. This rotates itself on a monthly basis.
3) Backup the data from the second computer (the only one with web access) to my home computer using the FTP function (have since switched to pcAnywhere for this - but the FTP stuff was free). This rotates itself on a monthly basis.
4) Once a month the home computer will try to backup to a CD. This is my signal to backup the data to a CD (since I can't get the CD backup to work!) This preserves a hard copy of the data on a monthly basis.
Also, you can send stuff to gMail accounts - and with 1 gB of storage you can fit a whole bunch there! Most ISP's offer some sort of online storage package also. This is great in case a disaster strikes and your computer is physically destroyed!
