CONTROL YOUR DESKTOP

 
In previous issue, our column about "Control your desktop" showed you which important folders / files to back-up in particular using WINDOWS COMMANDER and the extended "send to" facility of Microsoft "PowerToys for Windows 95/98" in order to have a safety-net against possible disaster.

We follow-up in this issue on how to prepare for "restore/recovery" and discussed about the difference between the "Start-up" disks of Windows 95 and Windows 98.

Let's see now how to prepare a start-up disk generated from Windows 95 and include the CD-ROM player drivers.

The ideal is to have Windows 98 installed; in that case the start-up disk is already fit for all restore tasks as the CD-ROM player drivers are automatically included during the start-up disk generation process.

If you are still running Windows 95, here is how to proceed to include your CD-ROM drivers in the start-up disk:

  1. Open WINDOW COMMANDER.

  2. Choose drive a:\ in one of the panels of WINDOW COMMANDER
  3. insert your CD-ROM player install disk into your a\ drive.
  4. Click on the a:\ drive in the WINCOM panel and open the floppy inserted in the a:\ drive.
  5. Copy all the files on the floppy to a temporary folder in the second panel of WINCOM.
  6. Remove your CD-ROM install disk from drive a:\ and insert your Windows 95 start-up disk.
  7. drag all files resulting from item 5 into the start-up disk in drive a:\

Next month, in AFRICABIZ issue: 10 we will see how to use these start-up disks for restore operations.

FREEBIE

 
The freebie of the month is about a download manager: GetRight:

Have you ever been stuck in the middle of a download and been obliged to resume the download from the start? Sure, when it happens it's really annoying if the file in question is in the MB range (3 to 15 MB or more).

Now you can download any size of file without fearing the hang up of your system or network problem. If it does happen, no problem; you just restart where you where before the stopping. All that thanks to a freebie called GetRight which means GET IT RIGHT ANYTIME.

GetRight is a great utility for downloading files.

If you're disconnected, GetRight can pick up where it left off and complete the download. Other features include multithreading support, mirror searching, download scheduling, and audio support. You can set up login / password information to automate retrieval from password-protected FTP sites, establish various default download folders based on file type, set up automatic daily downloads, automatically virus-scan downloaded files, and customize the files types that GetRight monitors. This top-notch download manager leaves no stone unturned; it's powerful, easy to use, and highly configurable and includes excellent online help.
