  1. pls go to the computer management from the control panel. than click on the disk management and assign your drive letter to particular disk... Now you can see the another drive..
  2. you have to take full backup...make another backup of that backup...from the first backup delete the file which you want... Thats it..
  3. I Think you have to you Acronis for the backup.i am using this software for my daily server backup
  4. :confused2: really? man.. is this a forum where I can ask my problem with linux?
  5. Bootloader not installing Hey everyone. I finally decided to give Mandriva One a whirl (since I really like PCLOS) and really liked it. So I installed it and rebooted, only to have it auto boot to XP. I rebooted the LiveCD and went to the MCC and tried to reinstall (first it told me no Bootloader was found) so I reinstalled it (using default settings as before) and rebooted. Again, straight to XP. Whats the problem? PCLOS set up just fine on this machine. The default settings has it going to the hda but what I did find odd was that it didn't find XP by default, I had to 'Add' it into the bootloader menu. But again even then nothing happened. Should I use LiLo instead of GRUB (default)? Thanks. Any input would greatly help my sanity, since I can't access Mandriva now. I also know about SuperGRUB, but my disc is at home and I'm at work. I'd also like to have the nice Mandriva one (aesthetics...) So to be clear, there is No GRUB, no LiLo, no nothing. Just a direct boot to XP. Thanks again.
  6. I'm having problems with the UID & GID 60001 on an NFS mounted share from a Solaris server to a Mac OS X client. Any files with the UID/GID of 60001 show up on the Mac OS X client as 4294967294. If i mount the same share on a Solaris client they show up just fine as 60001. Export directory from Solaris 8 system: server:/testdir NFS mount directrory on Max OS X (10.3.8) system: client:/nfs/server/testdir Problem is that the UID or GID of 60001 shows up as 4294967294 on the NFS mount. Folder listing on Solaris 8 NFS server: root@server# ls -lan /testdir/ total 8 drwxr-xr-x 4 8055 24 512 Jun 10 19:33 ./ drwxr-xr-x 27 0 1 512 Jun 10 17:20 ../ -rw-r--r-- 1 60000 60000 0 Jun 10 18:14 foo0 -rw-r--r-- 1 60001 60001 0 Jun 10 17:49 foo1 -rw-r--r-- 1 60002 60002 0 Jun 10 17:49 foo2 -rw-r--r-- 1 0 1 0 Jun 10 18:07 foo3 -rw-r--r-- 1 65534 65534 0 Jun 10 18:07 foo4 drwxr-xr-x 2 8055 24 512 Jun 10 17:20 testsubdir/ Folder listing on Mac OS X NFS client: client:/nfs/server root# ls -lan testdir/ total 6 drwxr-xr-x 4 8055 24 512 10 Jun 19:33 . drwxr-xr-x 5 0 80 170 10 Jun 18:38 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 60000 60000 0 10 Jun 18:14 foo0 -rw-r--r-- 1 4294967294 4294967294 0 10 Jun 17:49 foo1 -rw-r--r-- 1 60002 60002 0 10 Jun 17:49 foo2 -rw-r--r-- 1 0 1 0 10 Jun 18:07 foo3 -rw-r--r-- 1 65534 65534 0 10 Jun 18:07 foo4 drwxr-xr-x 2 8055 24 512 10 Jun 17:20 testsubdir The NFS share on the server was set up as: root@server# share - /testdir root=client.domain.com,rw=client.domain.com "" The client mount was set up as: client:/ root# mount_nfs server:/testdir /nfs/server/testdir/ Any ideas as to why this is happening or how i fix this?
  7. Question 1: Why are boot times so slow? Does available HD space have anything to do with it? The reason I ask about HD space is the fact that with Mandrake 10.1 the boot up was alot slower than with XP, but Mandrake was on a 9 gig patition while XP was on a 27 gig one. Now Mandrake is gone and in it's place, on the same drive, is Ubuntu 5.04. This one is terrible at boot time. IT takes upward 2 or 3 minutes to get past that screen of ever changing data, then it finally gets to the login screen and everything is of amazing speed. Why is it that it loads so slow? Question 2: How do I mount an NTFS or VFAT partition? I seem to be unable to read OR write any of my three windows partitions. Two are on the same physical drive, the third is on another drive entirely.
