The ext4 file system in Linux systems is the successor of the ext3 file system. As ext3 was extensively used for quite a long period, the ext4 file system is loaded with lot of new changes to overcome the limitations of ext3 file system. Few important data structures have been added in the ext4 file system to make it provide improved performance, new features, and reliability along with a better design. One such feature is the delayed allocation feature, which does not write any new data as soon as it is entered. Because of this, the processor waits till the time it is really necessary to write the data to the disk as it optimizes the write processes.

However, sometimes the delayed allocation feature results in severe data loss. You should use appropriate methods to resolve the situation. If you are not able to restore the lost data, then you should use a third-party Linux data recovery software to perform ext4 recovery.

Consider a scenario wherein you are using...

Mac OS X hard drive is divided into various partitions, called volume, for effective management of your precious data stored on it. Every Mac computer has a boot volume, which contains critical system files that are required for your Mac OS X operating system-based computer to boot up. These files are pretty important for booting up your system. In case the boot partition gets damaged or deleted, your system become totally unbootable and unusable. It leads to severe data loss and require Mac drive recovery solutions to fix the problem, if there is no backup in place.

The boot volume of your Mac OS X operating system contains the following files:

Mac OS X operating system.

MBR (Master Boot Record).

BootX, Mac OS X boot loader.

Operating system kernel.

Binary files that are required for multiple kernel extensions.

Mach/BSD data structures.

Input/Output Kit.

Init, Mach bootstrap (service naming) daemon.

The boot...

Ok, I just purchased Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 for Small Business Server and it says it will not install on a Domain Controller.
In another post, Chris Riley from Symantec posted response to someone else that he confirmed it cannot be installed on domain controllers.  Well, how do you install it?  Symantec's Chris Riley post is below.

Thanks, Michael

I've had it confirmed that BESR-MS cannot be installed on domain controllers at this stage. I will be creating a technote so that this is documented.

Sorry I don't have better news for you.

Roadmap_August 2009.png

According to published plans, the all-conquering LTO tape format has no future after LTO 6, which is expected in 2012. This is ridiculous and there must be a secret roadmap for LTOs 7 and 8.

The LTO tape format dominates the open systems tape business, is used increasingly by supercomputer customers and is making some inroads into the mainframe area via bridges such as those from Luminex or Fujitsu's CentricStore (ETERNUS CS) virtual tape library (VTL). Supercomputer users like Argonne and NASA Ames in the USA will have ten year roadmaps. They can generate 8PB or more of data a year and there is simply no alternative to tape for...

So, like you perhaps already know, the new version of Backup Exec System Recovery got released; Backup Exec System Recovery 2010. Some things changed, that are really important. For example the Manager no longer exists. This solution got replaced by Backup Exec System Recovery Management Solution.
I do not want to give a summary of the differences or pros and contras, I only want to talk about one fact that, in my opinion, is a absolute disaster:
 
If I'm not wrong (and I really searched all the information to this issue) you will not be able to migrate your storage destinations, jobs, schedules and so on from the Manager into the Management Solution. This means, that you will have to re-create you whole backups again!
Why in the world is that not possible? I already know customers of ours who will definitely go crazy.
 
The only information I found is, that you can migrate from BESR Solution to BESR Management...

A typical server environment consists of the main servers, drive arrays (which may or may not be directly attached to their respective servers), and disk- and tape-based backup servers. The most common IT assets are typically: patch panel, switches, secondary UPS, switch box, monitor and keyboard, blade servers, drive arrays and tape systems. Server storage devices hold organisational applications and operating systems in some partitions and documents in others.
Like any system servers are subject to a range of threats as well as maintenance which can include:
  • Server Crash
  • End users can easily overwrite or delete important documents
  • Applications need updating
  • Operating systems must be patched – perhaps tested in a virtual environment
  • Upgrade new server platforms
  • Malicious code can penetrate defences and attack data, applications, and operating systems
  • and can even get backed up if it is not...
