    It turns out that fired FBI director James Comey had Hillary Clinton’s definitive backup email device the entire election.Court records show that the Connecticut-based email storage company Datto handed over a “device” consisting of five or six disks to the FBI in October 2015. Insiders believe the device potentially contains every electronic communication that Hillary Clinton sent or received during her tenure as Secretary of State. James Comey spent his entire FBI investigation missing many Hillary Clinton emails and communications, according to the official version of events.The FBI handed the device over to the State Department, which has not searched...

    I want to have two backups. One for the office and one for home. The office backup is a little Toshiba, which does very well. For the home backup I bought a Passport Ultra. I hooked it up to the machine to back up, using its own utilities and after 24 hours it had backed up less than 5%. I talked on the phone with the nice man from India. He made a suggestion. Another 24 hours. 5%. I brought it to Staples techs. They decided that it was probably encrypting everything and that is why it is taking so...
  • Vanishing files delay Guantanamo hearings in 9/11 case

    MIAMI (Reuters) - Guantanamo war crimes prosecutions of five prisoners charged with plotting the September 11 hijacked planes attacks will be delayed by two months because of lost files caused by Pentagon computer problems, U.S. military officials said on Wednesday. A weeklong pretrial hearing had been set to begin on Monday in the death penalty case against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the attacks, and four alleged co-conspirators. The judge overseeing the case postponed the hearing until June 17 at the request of defense lawyers who said three to four weeks' worth of their confidential work files had...

    My Sony Vaio laptop came with Windows 7 preloaded and no physical disks. I read that there was supposed to be a recovery partition on the hard drive and figured that would be all I needed. To this point, I never had to use it. I do regular backups of my data (documents, music,etc) to an external HD. Yesterday, I was looking at Task Manager and saw a bunch of processes running. I looked at the descriptions of what they were supposed to do and stopped a bunch I thought I did not need. Computer continued to run fine. Long...

    Which apparently contains at least 60 classified messages. Game over. Recipes. Yoga routines. Chelsea’s wedding plans. That’s the stuff Hillary says she deleted from her homebrew e-mail server because, hey, why would anyone care about that? Everything work-related, she had her staff print out (!) and she handed it over to the State Department. That’s it. It’s all there. There’s nothing else. None of it was classified. And she can’t wait for you to read it. That’s been her story all along, so if it turns out there was a backup of her entire server kept by the company that...
  • Watchdog: IRS erased backups after loss of tea party emails

    WASHINGTON (AP) — IRS employees erased computer backup tapes a month after officials discovered that thousands of emails related to the tax agency's tea party scandal had been lost, according to government investigators. The investigators, however, concluded that employees erased the tapes by mistake, not as part of an attempt to destroy evidence. As many as 24,000 emails were lost because 422 backup tapes were erased, according to J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The revelation is likely to fuel conspiracy theories among conservatives who say the IRS has obstructed congressional investigations into the scandal. George...

    Recently I had a problem with Comcast's cloud backup. Then, I went to MyPC Backup Premium, and I started a year of their Premium program. Everything appeared to go well until this past week. I couldn't back up my files, and the system wanted me to go into a new package. Finally, after several days, I got a response re what to do, and it didn't work. I went on line and checked out their ratings. Once you got past the bs, there appeared to be a lot of people having similiar problems as I had. I really don't want...

This is the nightmare scenario that greeted US technology journalist Mat Honan, who had all of the contents of his iPhone, iPad and Macbook Air wiped, and lost control of his Gmail and Twitter accounts, all in the span of just over 15 minutes.

    What can we do to help Jim Robinson keep freerepublic robust and online? Freerepublic is important to me and I am willing to pay to keep it up and robust. I believe that many other freepers believe this as well. I do not overstate things when I say that the health of freerepublic is essential to the health of the nation and the restoration of the Constitution. Would it be worthwhile to create a backup fund for freerepublic to buy more equipment/bandwidth/alternate mirror sites? This is Jim's site, and I will certainly defer to his wishes, but if we can...

    I want to copy my 250 Gig Hard Drive to another 250 Hard Drive. I have been doing this for years with Drive Image using the 'drive copy' function in DI7. Now I get an error message "the service did not start due to a logon failure" and the drives do not show up in DI's GUI interface. I have not been able to figure how to correct this problem. I like to copy my whole HD not just make an image, that way if my drive ever fails I just pop the other drive in and I am up...

    At last week’s Guys Choice Awards, Sandra Bullock joked about the “spectacular I.E.D explosion that became my personal life.” The humorous nod to the demise of her marriage to Jesse James seems to indicate that Bullock is ready to get on with her life. However, James might not make that simple, as he allegedly has plans to move to Austin, Texas. In an interview with In Touch Weekly, James’ ex-wife Janine Lindemulder said that even though James has every intention to move to Austin to be close to Bullock and hopefully reconcile with her, James has another romantic interest waiting...

    Just a few months ago my old computer reached the point where duct tape wouldn't help. My plan of having multiple drives didn't work, 2 out of 3 blew out with the rest of the package.My new computer came with Vista which started showing signs of instability almost right away. I heard Rush talking about Carbonite backup and signed up for the plan. Last Thursday my OS really started going bonkers, nothing I tried would help. System restore would not work at all. Late Saturday I ran a reformat and recovery and got back on line. I only reinstalled the...

    I had a document I had written pages and pages of material on. I plugged in a disk to save it, and made the horrible mistake of sending the OLD version over and replacing the NEW version. I am DESPERATE to get this work back. Does anyone know how to recover an old saved version? I am reasonably certain system restore will not work, that's not what it was designed to do. I have not saved over it in any other way, and I recall some tech geeks telling me it was possible to access old saved versions of a...

    To avoid having to spend 11 hours deploying each Windows machine with all the requisite software, I have taken a finished Windows XP machine, made a bit perfect copy of it's hard drive, and copied it to the hard drive of a hardware-identical machine. Both machines have OEM licenses of Windows XP. Total time of deployment of subsequent machines: 60 minutes. Time saved: 10 hours per machine
