To print this file, type COPY README.TXT PRN at the DOS
prompt.

------------------------------------------------------------
1. Installation
------------------------------------------------------------

Conner Backup Basics for DOS will not install or operate correctly
from a DOS box within Windows. It must be installed and operated
directly from the DOS prompt.

The FILES command in your CONFIG.SYS file must be set to 10
or more files.

------------------------------------------------------------
2. Making Your First Backup
------------------------------------------------------------

When you make your first backup with Conner Backup Basics, it
is highly recommended that you use the Verify After Backup
option. During the Verify phase, Conner Backup Basics compares
each file on the tape with the original on your hard drive to
ensure that they are identical. While verifying will increase
the time of the backup, it will confirm that your computer
system, tape drive, and Conner Backup Basics are working
together correctly.

------------------------------------------------------------
3. Memory Requirements
------------------------------------------------------------

Conner Backup Basics for DOS requires at least 530K of free memory.
Some tape drives and types may require a minimum of 580K to work:

Drive Type Tape Type Minimum memory
-------------- -------------- --------------
Conner SLC QIC-80 530 KB
Conner SLC AccuTrak 560 KB
Conner SLC-PPT QIC-80 550 KB
Conner SLC-PPT AccuTrak 580 KB
Irwin AccuTrak AccuTrak 560 KB

To check your free memory, type MEM at the DOS prompt. To
free memory, remove any TSRs before running Conner Backup Basics.
See your system documentation for other methods.

------------------------------------------------------------
4. Tape Format Incompatibilities
------------------------------------------------------------

Because of inconsistencies in the formatting process used by
different tape drives, it is highly recommended that you
format tapes in the drive where you will use them.

NOTE: Conner Backup Basics cannot format AccuTrak tapes. If
your drive supports AccuTrak tapes, you should purchase them
preformatted.

------------------------------------------------------------
5. Running Conner Backup Basics under DesqView
------------------------------------------------------------

To run Conner Backup Basics under DesqView, make the following
selections in DesqView:

ù Create an entry in the Program Menu for Conner Backup Basics.

ù Under Advanced Options, specify that Conner Backup Basics
cannot share CPU when in the foreground, and that
it cannot run in the background.

ù Select Uses Its Own Colors.

ù Set the Memory Size option to meet the minimum
requirements shown in paragraph 3.

------------------------------------------------------------
6. Compressed Drives
------------------------------------------------------------

If you are using compression software such as Stacker or
DoubleSpace, do not back up the compressed file; back up the
logical drive instead. Because these compressed files are
typically very large, attempting to restore may cause problems
if you do not have enough disk space to restore the compressed file.

------------------------------------------------------------
7. Installing Conner Backup Basics on a System with Stacker
------------------------------------------------------------

If you have Stacker software installed on your computer,
you may not want to let Conner Backup Basics make changes to your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Some versions of Stacker create their
own AUTOEXEC.BAT file which should not be modified, and it
is this file that Conner Backup Basics will find.

You can tell if this is the case on your computer if, during
Conner Backup Basics installation, the AUTOEXEC.BAT file that is
displayed says "DO NOT MODIFY THIS FILE." In this case, you
will need to find your original AUTOEXEC.BAT file and make
the following changes:

ù Add the Conner Backup Basics directory to your PATH statement.

ù If you want to load the Backup Scheduler each time you
start your computer, add the command CSCHED as the last
command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

For more information on loading the Backup Scheduler, see the
help topic "Installing the Backup Scheduler TSR."

------------------------------------------------------------
8. The MS-DOS Append Command
------------------------------------------------------------

If you use the MS-DOS Append command with the /X or /X:ON
option, when you perform a restore, some files may not be
restored. This is because of the way DOS reports names of
existing files when this command is in effect.

It is highly recommended that you deactivate the Append /x
command before performing restores.

------------------------------------------------------------
9. Hardware Compression Not Supported
------------------------------------------------------------

Conner Backup Basics for DOS, Version 2.0, does not support
the hardware compression function found on some high-speed
controller cards.

------------------------------------------------------------
10. Laptop Power Management Conflicts
------------------------------------------------------------

Some laptop power management systems take a "snapshot" of RAM and
store it on the hard drive when they power down. This may create
a conflict if it occurs during a backup or restore or a tape
formatting operation.

When using Conner Backup Basics, it is recommended that you turn
OFF all power management features and plug your laptop into an
outlet rather than using the battery.

------------------------------------------------------------
11. Parallel Port Drive Configuration
------------------------------------------------------------

If your parallel port tape drive does not automatically
configure, first ensure that the power to the drive is on. If
it is, turn it off, then on, and try configuring it again. See
below for more suggestions.

------------------------------------------------------------
12. Parallel Port Drive IRQ Conflict With Sound Cards
------------------------------------------------------------

You may experience a conflict in IRQ selection if you are
configuring a parallel port tape drive on a system that
includes a sound card. SoundBlaster cards and compatibles use a
default IRQ of 7, which is also used by LPT1. If this conflict
occurs, you can:

* Change your sound card's IRQ if possible. Some cards do
not allow this change and some games may not work
correctly.

* Reconfigure your parallel port to LPT2, which uses IRQ
5. See your system documentation for more information.

------------------------------------------------------------
13. Maximum Parallel Port Cable Length
------------------------------------------------------------

Your parallel port tape drive should be connected directly to
your system's parallel port. If you use the pass-through
connector on the drive to connect a second device such as a
printer, the maximum cable length for both devices is
approximately 10 feet (3 meters).

If you have difficulty using your tape drive when a second
device is connected to the pass-through connector, disconnect
the second device and its cable while using the tape drive.

If you experience data loss when using a printer connected to
the pass-through connector, shorten the printer's cable if
possible or disconnect the tape drive while printing.

------------------------------------------------------------
14. Encrypted Backup Sets
------------------------------------------------------------

Conner Backup Basics cannot restore backup sets encrypted by
other backup programs. You must use the original software to
restore them.

------------------------------------------------------------
15. Backing Up Large Numbers of Files to AccuTrak Tapes
------------------------------------------------------------

When using AccuTrak tapes, backing up a very large number of
files--approximately 30,000 to an 80MB tape or 45,000 to a
120MB tape--will result in an error. Divide the files into
two or more backup sets and back up each set to its own tape.

------------------------------------------------------------
16. NetWare Server Information and AccuTrak Tapes
------------------------------------------------------------

Because of the proprietary format used by the tapes, NetWare
bindery files, trustee information, and extended attributes
cannot be backed up to AccuTrak tapes.

------------------------------------------------------------
17. NetWare Files With an Execute Only (X) Attribute
------------------------------------------------------------

NetWare files with an execute only (X) attribute will not be
backed up, compared, or overwritten during a restore.

------------------------------------------------------------
18. Microsoft Works Thesaurus Corruption
------------------------------------------------------------

The Microsoft Works Thesaurus requires that the archive bit (A)
be set. It is recommended that you do not back up this file.
If you do back up the Thesaurus, it may not work correctly
because the archive bit will be changed. If this occurs,
contact Microsoft Technical Support.

------------------------------------------------------------
19. Files Not Backed Up
------------------------------------------------------------

Conner Backup Basics does not log or back up a number of files
to avoid potential system conflicts if they are restored.

Compressed Volume files:

DBLSPACE.0??
DBLSPACE.BIN
STACVOL.*

Windows swap files:

386SPART.PAR
WIN386.SWP

NetWare System files:

BACKOUT.TTS
NET$SPL.QUE
NET$MSG.SYS
DIRSTAMP.SYS
NET$OBJ.SYS
NET$PROP.SYS
NET$VAL.SYS
NET$BIND.SYS
NET$BVAL.SYS
SYS$LOG.ERR

See your User Guide for information on backing up and restoring
NetWare system files.

Additionally, Conner Backup Basics will not back up a number of
temporary files used by the program when these files are found
in the program's directory.
[fr] Ce programme vous permet de faire des sauvegardes sur des bandes magnétique compatible. Puisqu'il date de 1993, il risque de ne pas être compatible avec les lecteurs modernes. Cliquez ci-dessus pour voir la disquette de la version 2.0 pour DOS.

Pourquoi pas. Mais bien que je connais ce procédé d'enregistrement sur bandes magnétiques, je ne le connais que très peu n'ayant jamais eu l'occasion de le pratiquer.

J'ai un lecteur à bandes, mais je n'ai pas le câble pour le brancher (scsi) :roll: mais de toute façon le miens est un seagate, donc je ne crois pas qu'il soit compatible avec ce programme.

Accepté puisqu'il date de 1993 et est compatible avec MS-DOS (cf. image de la disquette). Comme il s'agit d'un logiciel conçu pour du matériel spécifique, le topic pourrait être déplacé parmi les "Pilotes".

Juste un point à préciser : pourrais-tu lister les modèles de lecteurs pour lesquels ce programme a été conçu ? Ils devraient être répertoriés dans la documentation. D'avance merci.

@nintenloup
Le vieux matériel Seagate est compatible Conner. Ainsi, sous Windows 98, mon lecteur de marque Seagate accompagné de son contrôleur de bandes sont reconnus sous l'étiquette Conner. J'ai d'ailleurs utilisé la version 2.1.2 de Conner Backup Exec pour DOS, qui est compatible avec la capacité des mini-cartouches Travan-3.
Iomega Ditto ne gère pas la carte accélératrice 2Mbit des autres constructeurs, contrairement à la version floppy 5.00 de HP Colorado Backup qui désigne mon lecteur comme un Tape Store 3200MB (le TapeStor 3200 est le cousin du CCT3200). Cependant, on perd la capacité qu'ont les descendants d'Arcada à sauvegarder sur une MC3010 avec un lecteur QIC-3020 (plantage du message demandant de reformater).
Quant au logiciel HP Colorado II ([en], [fr], [de], [it], [es]), en plus de corriger le bug de l'an 2000 de l'interface Arcada, il accepte la capacité des MC3020-Extra Wide (1000' et 8mm qu'il nomme QIC-3020 GT comme les MC3020-Extra pour lecteurs ¼"). D'ailleurs, le lecteur est reconnu de la même façon que par l'utilitaire de Windows 98 (Conner QIC-3020). Néanmoins, il hérite d'Arcada l'intolérance envers l'existence d'un nom MS-DOS trop long : il faut alors la version Windows 3.1/95 ([en], [fr], [de], [it], [es] & éventuel patch pour l'an 2000) qui prend Win Me pour une version 3.95 en mode 386 étendu !
