I purchased a WD 500 GB external, and used windows backup. It worked
fine. I was planing to return my laptop for repairs because it was
making funny sounds, so i deleted all my documents/music/pictures and
so on. When i went to restore everything, I got a pretty nasty
everything was restored, but stored on the F: drive, which is the
external. when ever i would start up the computer, without the
external plugged in, it would give me an error saying that the desktop
wasn't found and that it was in different folder.
there was also a problem with Microsoft office, which when ever i
would open Word 2007 it would say "the office open xml file
Normal.dotm cannot be opened because there are problems with the
contents." then it would give me a second error message "Word cannot
open the existing file. (normal)
i would also get this same error when opening up any existing word
file. when i would write things up and then go to save it, it says
that "word has insufficient memory. do you want to save document one
as rescued document 2?"
i have a similar problem with itunes
what do i do?
