Creating a custom category
Most computer files are defined by the two-,
three-, or four-letter extension placed at the end of
their names. Plain text files, for example, can be
identified by their .txt file extension. When you
record a Backup Files project, the program is
simply searching your computer for files with
extensions that correspond to the categories you
selected. If you want to archive files that are not
included on any of the pre-defined lists, you could
choose to archive all files or edit one of the
existing categories (see “Backup Files options“ on
page 13 for more information), or you could create
your own custom list of file extensions that will
appear as the category called My Custom
Category.
To create a custom file category:
1 Click Options.
2 Click File Backup on the left side of the Options

window. The File Category options are
displayed on the right side of the window.
Click My Custom Category.
Type a file extension into the Extension text box.
It is not necessary to include the period.
Click Add. The file extension is added to the list
box on the right.
Continue adding file extensions one at a time
until you are finished.
To remove a file extension from your list, click
its name in the list box, then click Remove.
Click OK to save your list as My Custom
Category. This new category is added to the list
of file categories in the project window.
Creating a new Backup Files project
To create a new Backup Files project:
1 Click the FIle Backup tab in the project list. A list
of projects is displayed.
2 Click the Backup Files project.
3 Click Browse and use the Browse for Folder
window to select the drive or folder containing
the files you would like to archive.
Note: Files stored on different source drives cannot be
archived in the same Backup Files project.
4 Select the types of files you wish to archive.
Choose either All files in the selected path or Only
files in the following categories.
If you selected only files in the following
categories, select the file categories you would
like to archive. The choices are Email, Financial,
Music, Photos, Productivity, and Video and Recorded TV.
If you created a custom category, it will also be
available. See "Creating a custom category" on
page 11 for more information.
Note: Hold your mouse pointer over an icon to see the
category it represents.
5 If you want, place a check mark in the Only
archive files changed since checkbox to limit the

the Destination Selection list. The destination can
be a hard drive, a disc recorder, or another type
of storage device.
7 To compress or encrypt your backup, click
Advanced and select the appropriate settings:
• Compression-Click the Compress check box if
you would like the back up files created for
this project to be compressed.
Compression reduces file size. The amount
of compression varies based on the types of
files you back up. Compressed files take

• Encryption-Click the Encrypt check box to
require a password to open or restore your
backup project. Type a password for this
project in the space provided and again in
the confirmation box.
Caution: If you forget or lose your password, you will not
be able to open or restore your backup project.
8 Click the action

Scheduler tips
The following tips will help you to better
understand the scheduler:
• Scheduled projects must be saved before they
can be run.
• Keep the following limitations in mind if you
want a scheduled project to be completed
successfully while you are away from your
computer:
• Backup Files will not overwrite files without
your permission. This usually involves
clicking on a series of message boxes. To
perform an unattended archive project,
you may need to change the hard drive
destination for your archived files or archive
your files to a disc.
• If you are archiving files onto a disc, a blank
disc must be inserted in your drive when
the project starts.
• Some of the energy conservation settings
available for your computer may keep a
scheduled project from starting even if the
project launcher is open.
• The Backup Files project uses a scheduler that
is part of the Windows operating system. A
system administrator has the ability to prevent
a computer user from using the scheduler or
running scheduled projects. If the Backup Files
scheduler does not work as expected, consult
your system administrator.
• You can use your Windows scheduling
software to customize when your saved
projects run. You can schedule a project to run
twice a week or once every hour. Save your
project, then edit the schedule using the
Windows Scheduler.
To run Windows Scheduler in Windows XP, click
Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Scheduled
Tasks.
To run Windows Scheduler in Windows Vista and
Windows 7, click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System
Tools, Task Scheduler.
Note: See Windows Help and Support for information
on using the Windows Scheduler. Remember that
scheduling changes made directly in the Windows
Scheduler are not displayed in the Backup Files project
window.

Backup tips
• All of the discs used in a Back Up Files project
must be the same general format.
• In a multi-disc Back Up Files project, files are
assigned based on the size of the first disc you
use. If your first disc has a capacity of 650 MB,
for example, no more than 650 MB will be
burned on any subsequent disc, even if it has a
larger capacity. This also means that no disc in
a project can have a smaller capacity than the
first disc used in a project.
• Discs used in a Back Up Files project are closed
once they are recorded. If you use write-once
discs, you will not be able to add additional
data.
• To view a list of the files on a Back Up Files disc,
open the .RFI file placed on the disc.

Troubleshooting
I do not see the

system tray, but I can't find
the hard disk in MY
COMPUTER.
My memory card does not
appear in My Computer or
Windows Explorer

• Make sure that the USB cable is connected firmly to
your enclosure and computer.
• Make sure that the USB cable is not broken.
• Open the enclosure and make sure that all of the
connections are securely fastened.
• Use the rear USB ports on the back of the computer
instead of the front USB ports.
• Check for motherboard compatibility issues.
• Check for hard drive compatibility issues.
• Windows users: Partition and format the new hard
drive by using Disk Management in Windows.
• Macintosh users: Partition and format the new
hard drive by clicking Disk Utilities in the Utilities
folder, then clicking your external enclosure.
• Make sure the HDD has been initialized and
partitioned before hardware installation. Refer to
"Creating A New Partition" on page 7.
• Try a different memory card of the same type in the
same slot. If the different memory card works,
replace the original memory card.
• Shine a flashlight into the empty card slots. Look to
see if any pin inside is bent. Straighten bent pins
with the end of a mechanical pencil or paper clip.
• Make sure that memory card is fully inserted into the
slot.
• Try a different memory card of the same type in the
same slot. If the different memory card works,
replace the original memory card.
• Some cards have a read/write security switch. Make
sure that security switch is set to Write Enabled.
• Make sure that the amount of data you tried to store
does not exceed the capacity of the card.
• Inspect the ends of the memory cards for dirt or
material closing a hole. Clean the contacts with a
lint-free cloth and small amounts of isopropyl
alcohol.
• If errors persist, replace the memory card.
• Your system may be operating at USB 2.0 speeds due
to an incorrect driver installation of the USB 3.0
adapter card or a system that does not support USB
3.0. If your system includes a PCIe slot, you can
achieve SuperSpeed USB transfer rates by installing a
USB 3.0 PCIe adapter card.
• Make sure you have installed the backup utility
program, if the utility program has been installed
successfully, it will show an icon in the toolbar when
Windows was booting.
