If you need to backup Microsoft Sharepoint Documents this is the easy way to do it. This tutorial is also useful for being able to view sharepoint documents in windows explorer to drag and drop files.

Click My Computer
Tools–Map a Drive

This first option may not work but you should try it first

Select a Drive Letter you want to use
Under the folder location enter your sharepoint address such as

http://sharepointserver.com

Then Click Connect using a different username
Enter the username/password you use to connect to sharepoint
domain\user
password
Remember Password

If successful you’re good to go if not this next step will work for you

While still in the map network drive screen at the very bottom you’ll see a link about connecting to a website. This creates a network location.

It should prompt you for the same information address, username/password
It then saves it as a network location

When your finished you should be able to view all your document libraries and be able to back them up. If you were able to successfuly map this as a network drive letter then you will be able to automatically back up these documents with a backup software such as Macrium Reflect or something similar.

If you were only able to add it as a network location then you will only be able to manually back up these files. However there might be a work around for this I’m sure you’ll be able to find.

When you need to restore your operating system it is always a good idea to have a good copy of all of your system drivers to ensure a successful recovery. Backup your drivers now and avoid painfully tracking down and downloading each driver when your system crashes.

Double Driver is a simple program that allows you to backup or restore your drivers. It even allows you to backup drivers from a non-live/non-booting windows partition in case your windows system has become corrupted and non-bootable but you still need to recover your system.

Download Double Driver
Run DD.EXE
Click Backup
Click Scan Current System
At the top click the select arrow drop down
Click All
Click Backup Now
Then Choose your destination to backup drivers to
That it, your drivers are successfully backed up.

Cheap Server/Network Backup

Jan 01, 2010 @ 03:09 am by HackingManual

There are a lot of great programs out there for automatically backing up your sever. I was looking for the following features in a server backup program.

-Image Backups, So I could restore the entire Server quickly.
-Automatic, and reliable
-Could backup multiple PC’s and not just the computer it was installed on.
-Could backup my entire network
-Easy to use

In the end I found Macrium Reflect which had all these features for around $40. Other software I looked at was complicated, and had a price tag of over $1000. Macrium Reflect was clearly the winner and I’ve been using it for over a year now.

Check out the features here.
