[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] FREE Backup Software That Provides Basic And Advanced Features (such as disk imaging)

I have been involved in computers in some form or another for over 25 years. My strength has always been in the area of software and learning what I needed to know to keep the flow of the workplace healthy. I will tell you right off the bat, I am not an expert; however, give me a little time and I will find the answer. Since my retirement, my desire to keep up with the trends has not diminished; AND, if anything it has become even more focused. I have learned to become a master of computer information.

My focus is no longer in a workplace setting, but is more in the direction of what can I contribute to help folks at home. Today, I want to push you in a direction of making sure you are backing up your data (documents, pictures, music, etc…) and even backing up your entire hard drive.

One of the first things you need to do is get yourself a good external drive that will become an extension of your computer and can be easily removed (and stored away) if need be (depending on how important is your data to you). I currently use several external drives, with one of those drives being a portable hard drive (see examples here). I use this portable hard drive to store a backup image of my entire hard drive that will capture every bit of data on the drive at the time of the backup. I then remove the drive and store it off site. I know there are numerous cloud computing backup options out there where you can move your personal (and private) files to the cloud. Even with this option being available, I still (highly) recommend the process of backing up your data and external drive (at your house). This all may sound like a pain, but really it is not; especially when I introduce you to AOMEI Backupper Standard.

AMOEI Backupper Standard is a FREE backup software solution that I can personally attest does work (especially the disk imaging component). AMOEI gives you the ability to perform a system backup, a disk backup, a customized files/folders backup and a partition backup.

image

Please do not let these terms scare you off. AMOEI will walk you through the process of performing these tasks. On a personal level, as mentioned, I use the disk imaging component of AMOEI to make an exact copy of my hard drive in my computer.

In closing, to give an example of how AMOEI, saved my butt…  I recently noticed and determined that my hard drive in my computer, after 7 years, was working its’ way toward failure. Using AMOEI, I routinely performed disk imaging backups and had those images stored on an external drive. When it was time to install the new drive, I created a boot CD (or DVD) using the AMOEI software. Using the AMOEI software, I created boot CD (which is easy to do). After installing the new hard drive, which was larger in size and contained no data, I booted from the CD.  Within the boot CD is a built in version of the AMOEI software that allowed me to pull the image from the external drive and restore my data (an exact copy of my old hard drive) to the new drive (a new Seagate Hybrid Drive with SSD). I always keep my fingers crossed when performing tasks such as this, but AMOEI performed flawlessly.

Get A Great Deal On Microsoft Office 365 Personal

July 18, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Get A Great Deal On Microsoft Office 365 Personal– A year ago I would have told you that Microsoft was behind the eight ball and was not in tune with the current devices (such as tablets, smartphones, etc.) which are supported by cloud computing. A year later I am seeing a new Microsoft that is quickly rebounding and doing things that I never thought I would see them do.

One example (of late) is their pricing model changes and incentives with Microsoft Office 365.  If you do not know what Microsoft Office 365 is, let me break it down in one sentence. Microsoft Office 365 is an online subscription service to Microsoft Office where you pay an annual fee to keep Office on your computer (and other devices).

Microsoft Office 365

There are quite a few pricing models for Microsoft Office 365, but the latest deal that jumped out at me was Microsoft Office 365 Personal where Microsoft has thrown in a Terabyte of online storage and 60 Skype minutes for $6.99 a month (or $69.99 a year at a 16% savings).

Office 365 Personal enables you to install the latest full desktop version of Office applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook, on 1 PC or Mac, in addition to 1 Windows tablet or iPad — so you can use all the features offline as well as online. You can also install Office on multiple smartphones.

What is making this sweet is the terabyte of online storage (and the Skype minutes); PLUS, the satisfaction of knowing that your version of Microsoft Office is always up to date.

Have It All With A Solid State Hybrid Drive

July 11, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Have It All With A Solid State Hybrid Drive –  If you have an older PC and you are looking for a performance boost, that gives you faster speed with capacity, you may want to take a look one of Seagate’s Solid State Hybrid Drives.

Seagate’s Solid State Hybrid Drive

The good about the hybrid drive is that it is less expensive (see sample pricing) than solid state drives, yet gives you the kick and speed of the solid state drive (see customer reviews).

The hybrid drives by Seagate set aside approximately 6GB’s of ultra-fast NAND flash (same as used for SSD technology) to store the most frequently used data.  What this means is that, as you use the computer, the hybrid drive learns what data you use frequently and stores it on the SSD side of the drive. As this happens over time you will notice that the load times of those frequently used application are greatly reduced.  System boot times and system responsiveness are also noticeably improved using the hybrid form factor.

The Seagate® Desktop SSHD is designed to work in any standard desktop system. Unlike other hybrid solutions, there are no special drivers or software to install and configure. It installs and works just like a hard drive – only faster!

Periodically Change The Background Image On Your Computer (like every hour or every day)

June 30, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Periodically Change The Background Image On Your Computer (like every hour or every day) – You may have figured out that in Windows 7 and Windows 8 you have the ability to setup a screensaver that will display your photos and images on your computer as a slideshow (when the computer goes idle for a preset period of time).  The problem with this is that it is limited in what you can do. Actually screensavers are really a thing of the past (that was designed to save your screen from burn in).

If you really want something that I consider an awesome piece of software, that is periodically updated (and improved), I encourage you to take a look at John’s Background Switcher (aka: JBS).

John’s Background Switcher

What does John’s Background Switcher do?  John best describes it as this: “JBS sits in your system tray (down by the clock) and changes your background at the time interval of your choosing. You tell it where to get pictures from and how to show them – maybe you just want to see one photo at a time or maybe you’d like to see a ‘Snapshot Scrapbook‘ of photos thrown across your desktop. It’s up to you and you never know what’s coming next!”

Take a look at John’s Background Switcher; and, that dull boring computer background will be transformed into a beautiful display that makes good use of your images (and photos) with the ability to pull images from various sources on the internet.  Get it here (for FREE)!

The Benefit of Turning Off GPS On Your Android Phone (KitKat Version) And Using WiFi To Determine Your Location

June 18, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] The Benefit of Turning Off GPS On Your Android Phone (KitKat Version) And Using WiFi To Determine Your Location – When the GPS function is activated on your phone it is constantly performing a satellite handshake to pinpoint your location. Personally, I do not see a need for GPS unless you are going a trip and need to use the phone for navigation purposes; PLUS, GPS turned “on” drains the battery.

The 2nd best option to GPS, that is more battery friendly, is to use Wi-Fi and the Mobile Networks to determine your location. To do this on your Android Phone (KitKat version), Go to Settings > Location Mode AND select Battery Saving (Use wi-fi and mobile networks to determine location).

Shut Down Windows 8 With Shutdown8

June 11, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Shut Down Windows 8 With Shutdown8 – After the release of Windows 8.1 Update, Microsoft did make things better for people to navigate around; however, shutting down the PC is still a hidden component (when you are on the desktop side of Windows 8).

To remedy this issue on my Windows 8 computer, I installed a little program called Shutdown8.

Shutdown8

Shutdown8 is available as an install file or a portable app. I went for the portable app version. Once you get it installed, pin the Shutdown8 executable file to your taskbar making it very handy to shutdown your PC.

Not only does Shutdown8 provide convenience in shutting down your PC, it also has the following features:

  • Shuts down/powers off computers at a specified time
  • Users can set the timer with the [+][-] keys or the mouse wheel button
  • Hibernate Mode: Saves the contents from the RAM to a hard disk and shuts down
  • Sleep Mode: Saves the state of the computer to RAM and enters a low-power mode
  • Works well with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8
