not provide the standard power level.
•
Plugging DataPocket into a USB Hub that is not powered by an external
power adapter.

6. Backup Tips and Techniques
6.1.
Recommended Backup Schedules
It is a good habit to back up your important pictures, music, videos, documents,
programs, and other files as often as possible.
Since it is easy to forget running regular backups, here are some recommendations
that will help you establish a regular backup routine.
Business users / Heavy users:
If you use your computer daily for critical tasks where losing any data would cause a
significant setback, it is best that you run a backup at the end of each day.
Non-critical users / Personal users:
If you use your computer occasionally or do not change your computer contents
often, it is sufficient to run a backup from once a week to once a month depending
on your level of computer activity.
Special Events:
You should always back up your computer right after special events where you
significantly changed your computer contents.
For instance, after coming back from vacation and downloading your vacation
pictures to your computer.
Or, after finalizing that important presentation that you’ve spent the past 72 hours
working on non-stop.
And, at particular time markers such as the end of the quarter, the calendar year,
and the academic year.
Notebook Users:
If you use a notebook computer, you should take special care to back up your data
even more frequently than desktop users.
In addition to your regular backups, you should also run a backup before events
where you will be transporting your notebook computer.
For example, you should run a backup before getting on the plane for business trips
and before leaving the office for meetings across town.
Page 19
Revision 1.3
DataPocket
User’s Guide
6.2. Recommended Backup Techniques
Here are some useful backup techniques to help you get the most out of your
DataPocket Smart Backup tasks:
Include a date code in the name of the backup folder:
This will help you identify the dates of the backup you make on DataPocket. Also, it
gives you a convenient way to sort your backups by date on your computer. Your
computer file management program can organize DataPocket contents by number
and letter sequence.
YYMMDD Name of Backup
Date
Last 2 Digits of Year
2 Digits for Month
Example:
This is a backup of My Pictures made on February 15, 2005.
Keep more than one version of the same backup task:
This will provide you extra security in the case that you need to find a file that you
deleted or changed before the most recent backup. If you keep multiple versions of
the same backup task, you have the option of going back two, three or however
many versions you keep to find the data you need.
You can use this technique together with using date codes to optimally manage your
backup tasks.
Combined Example:
In the combined example here, you can see that this DataPocket user has backed
up her ‘My Critical Data’ and ‘My Pictures’ at the end of 2004 on December 31.
You can also see that she regularly backs up her ‘My Critical Data’ once a week on
Fridays keeping 3 versions. And, that she backed up her ‘My Pictures’ again on
February 15, 2005.
Page 20
Revision 1.3
DataPocket
User’s Guide
Group your backups by date or by name:
If you prefer to have all your backups grouped by date, put the 6-digit YYMMDD
date code in the front of the backup folder name.
If you prefer to view your backups grouped by name, put the date code at the end.
Use special characters to organize your backup folder listing:
In addition to using numbers and letters, you can also use punctuation marks to make
selected folders appear at the top of the list.

8. Troubleshooting and Technical Support
My computer does not recognize DataPocket.
•
Make sure that the Main USB connector is properly connected to your
computer and the Mini USB connector is properly connected to DataPocket.
If you connect the Power Only USB connector to your computer, DataPocket
will not function properly. See Section 2.3. Connecting DataPocket to Your
Computer for more detail.
•
If you are running Windows 98/SE, make sure that you have installed the
Windows 98 driver. See Section 5. Installing Windows 98 Driver for

you may need to provide more power to DataPocket. See Section 4. Powering
DataPocket for more detail.
•
Make sure your computer USB Port is working properly.
My computer recognizes DataPocket, but it is not functioning properly.
•

The device has been tested and verified to be within the energy emission limits for Class B digital
devices as defined in Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential situation. This device generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. Installed correctly, it probably will not interfere
with your radio or TV. However, we do not guarantee the absence of interference.
If you modify the device in any way, without approval from Digital Foci, Inc., your device may violate
FCC regulations. Violation of FCC regulations may cause the FCC to void your rights to use the
modified device.
If you suspect this device is causing interference, power off and on the device while your radio or TV is
showing interference. If the interference disappears when you turn the device off and reappears when
you turn the device on, something in the device is causing interference.
To reduce interference, try these suggestions:
• Change the direction of the radio or TV antenna.
• Increase the separation between the device and radio or TV.
• Connect the device into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the radio or TV is
connected.
If these suggestions don’t help, consult your computer dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
more suggestions.
