Automate Your Windows 7 Backups

windows 7 backup 

Far too many PC users fail to properly back up their systems and their data. Because of that, I’ve often found myself in the position of having to tell family and friends that all of the family photos and financial information they’ve stored on their computer is completely lost. There are so many free and inexpensive ways to set up regular backups, that there is really no excuse to lose all of those precious memories and important files.
Tina recently described a step-by-step approach to setting up the Windows 7 backup and restore feature that’s built right into the operating system. It really doesn’t get much easier than that. Justin also provided 10 free products that can help with manually taking regular backups. In this article, I’m going to offer three other free products that you can use to configure regularly scheduled, automated Windows 7 backups.

Back Up All of Your Computers Today

These are products that are guaranteed to work with the Windows 7 operating system, but you can also use them to back up other PCs in your house as well. The best of all, the client-server solution, which I’ll describe last, offers a very cool centralized approach to your entire household backup needs.

Fast & Simple Backups With TrueSafe

The simple fact is, some people just don’t know where to start when it comes to computer maintenance. In my opinion, TrueSafe offers one of the simplest solutions for taking PC image backups.
It is free software, but you will need to register with the site using an email address. The process is simple and painless. Once you’re done, the software will take you through a very simple four step backup process.

Best of all, part of the process includes an option to schedule the backups only at a regularly scheduled time of your choosing. In the “Choose Schedule” step, you get to define when the backups take place, and how often they take place. Make sure to choose the “Automatic” mode in this step, or you won’t be able to schedule your backups.

Once you’re through the four steps, your PC is now protected with regular backups of either your entire drive, or select files and folders that you’ve chosen, to the destination of your choice. This can be a network share that you’ve set up on a different PC, or some external or internal drive.

Image Your Hard Disk With ODIN

The second tool that I wanted to offer is a very easy to use open-source disk imaging software tool called ODIN, that lets you quickly configure what partitions you want to image, and where you want to store those images.

The manual operation of this tool is a quick one-screen operation, which is very cool. It offers one of the easiest ways to take a quick backup of your hard drive to an external hard drive where you probably (should be) storing all of your hard disk backups.
However, the reason I’m covering the tool here is because it also offers a command line feature that you can schedule using Windows 7 task scheduling tool to fire off at automated, scheduled intervals.

You can get all the usage options by typing “usage” after the executable. Using the -backup parameter lets you define the -source and -target for the images. You could install the software on any PC where you want to take backup images and just schedule the backup command to kick off whenever it’s convenient for you – like when no one is likely to be using the computer.

Use UrBackup to Set Up a Client-Server Imaging Solution

In this article, I’ve saved the best for last. I absolutely love the UrBackup imaging solution. I like it because it follows the general goal I have to accomplish most of my home network maintenance and processing tasks using a centralized server to do all of the work.
Basically, you install a UrBackup Server app onto your centralized server where you would like to store all of your backups. Then, you install the UrBackup Client software on all of the PCs in your house that you want to back up.
The nice thing about this solution is that it bypasses messy antivirus or firewall problems networking sharing often introduces, because once you enable the client software, the server software has full access to take backups.

As you can see above, for each client, you tell the server software where to store the backups and at what frequency you want to take images.
On the client machine, you can either trigger manual backups by right clicking the UrBackups icon in the taskbar, or you can open up the client software to define the schedule for that client’s automated backups.
windows backup utility
You can schedule only a backup of files and specific folders, or if you prefer you can define an interval for incremental image backups. Make sure the “active” box is selected, or the Server schedule settings will be used instead.
windows backup utility
On the server, you can select between all of your clients by using the drop-down list at the top of the main screen.
windows 7 backup
In my opinion, UrBackup offers the nicest solution because you can set up, schedule, and organize all of your backup configurations and storage from one central location. Attack a massive drive to that server and you’ve got an awesome at-home backup solution for all of your home computers.
Do any of these Windows 7 backup solutions strike your interest? Do you know of any others that work well? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.....Thanks

Setup Your Own Personal Torrent Server

BitTorrent Icon
BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer or P2P file sharing protocol used for distributing large amounts of data over the Internet. BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files and it has been estimated that peer-to-peer networks collectively have accounted for roughly 43% to 70% of all Internet traffic.
As of January 2012, BitTorrent has 150 million active users according to BitTorrent, Inc.  At any given instant BitTorrent has, on average, more active users than YouTube and Facebook combined.
In our today's  article you will be able to setup a BitTorrent Server all by your self and it is very easy pictorial you can follow.

A BitTorrent server or in other word Torrent Tracker Server basically is an http-Server that collects all clients ip addresses into pools sorted by one of the request strings parameters and answers all other clients that specified this exact same parameter a list of all other recent clients.

The following is a list of notable software for running a BitTorrent tracker.
Tracker Programming Language License Operating System Support Description
MLDonkey OCaml GPL Cross-platform MLDonkey has a built in tracker and announce service.
MonoTorrent C# MIT Linux, Mac, Windows Uses Mono for cross-platform support (.NET)
Opentracker C Beerware FreeBSD, Linux, Mac, Solaris, Windows,… Uses libowfat,[4] performs well even on embedded hardware. Only requirement is a POSIX compliant OS.
PeerTracker PHP GPL Cross-platform Extremely lightweight and efficient BitTorrent tracker. Supports SQLite3, MySQL and soon PostgreSQL for storage.
PHPBTTracker PHP GPLv2 Cross-platform A simple BitTorrent tracker which supports tracking basic statistics. Supports MySQL backend database.
RivetTracker PHP GPLv2 Cross-platform Based on PHPBTTracker, it is a slightly more complicated but still simple to use BitTorrent tracker which supports tracking basic statistics. It has a more polished user interface than its predecessor which splits torrents up into pages and uses icons from the Tango Project. Supports MySQL backend database. Support for RSS 2.0 spec.
TBDev Tracker PHP GPLv2 Cross-platform A fully featured torrent tracker originally based on the final version of TorrentBits. The user interface is very polished, and is used by many private tracker sites.
μTorrent C++ Proprietary Freeware Mac (Intel only), Windows / Wine Does not have a web interface or list of hosted torrents; it is not designed for secure or large-scale application.
Vuze Java Disputed/GPL Linux, Mac, Windows Vuze (formerly Azureus) has a built in tracker.
XBT Tracker C++ GPL Linux and Windows Uses MySQL for data storage, lightweight tracker
Hefur C++ MIT Linux Standalone, no database required. Very simple to setup.

.torrent files require a tracker to keep track of who (peer clients) has which piece of a particular torrent file. Azureus is a popular Java-based BitTorrent client with an inbuilt tracker.
You will require the Azureus Vuze client. You can download it from If you don’t have the Java Development Kit, let Azureus download it for you. Azureus prevents basic users from creating a torrent tracker, so you’ll need to switch to the advanced user mode. Under View, select Advanced, and then in Mode, select Advance User proficiency.
For your torrent to work, you have to create a server (tracker). To do so, navigate to Tools > Options > tracker >Server. If you have a static IP, key it in. If you’re on a dynamic IP, things are a little more complicated—you will have to use Azureus along with dynamic DNS services such as DynDNS, Discoveryvip and No-IP; register with them free of cost to use them. Once that is done, key in the dynamic host name given to you during registration. You will also have to keep the dynamic DNS client running in the background while your tracker is up.
Azureus then automatically checks if the dynamic IP is being resolved or not. Enable the tracker using the checkbox, and let it use the default 6969 HTTP port. To let others host their own torrents using your tracker, turn on Enable External Torrents. You can even force these external torrents to use the default port by selecting the appropriate option. The tracker also lets you enable the UDP protocol, which will trouble your server less than HTTP, but you won’t be able to control clients’ download ratios—beware of leechers!
The Windows XP SP2 Firewall will require you to forward the ports used by Azureus. The simplest way to
do it is by adding an exception for Azureus in the firewall. Switch your Control Panel to Classic View and
open Windows Firewall. Under the Exception tab, select Add Program. Browse to the directory where Azureus is installed, select Azureus.exe, and apply the changes.
Creating The Torrent:
To create a torrent, use [Ctrl] + [N] or go to File > New Torrent. Make sure that “Azureus Embedded Tracker” is selected; you can also share a directory in accordance with your requirements. On the third page of the “Make a torrent” interface, don’t forget to check the option to open the torrent for seeding when done.  Azureus will then create the .torrent file in the directory selected.
Distributing The Torrent:
Completing all the above steps properly will make Azureus seed the file. Seed your file for a long time to prevent peers from being left with incomplete files. Finally, you can distribute the torrent to your friends using e-mail or IM. If you’re releasing your personal videos or an amateur film using torrents, don’t use your PC as a tracker—it won’t be able to handle the traffic. Instead, opt for an external tracker service or a server instead. So keep sharing and make the world free.
