Awake and Alive!

After a long period of hiatus I’m switching gear into posting blogs again. It has been a great year. People seem to be asking where I have been?
For starters I got married and settled down for good. Other months has not been spent entirely on family, but also the offline community and work. Most of all, we are now rearing a 3 month baby.
But it wasn’t all just fun. I had internet connection issues, inaccessible Hotmail account, and on top of that two of my systems died, a laptop and another PC.
I feel all the more thankful to all those that helped me through it all and moreover for our little bundle of joy.

The 2nd KB Article

Community Content KB Article ID: 2790565 has been published. This Article describes how to resolve an error for File History to backup files using a Virtual Hard Disk.


The resolution has been tested using both a Guest machine through Hyper-V and my actual Windows 8 machines. After experiencing several issues while using File History, the article presents a resolution with two methods. I personally prefer Method 1 which allows you to create scripts for allowing a VHD to auto-mount with a UAC prompt whenever you restart, through this way you visually know that the script executes. For those who want a more silent type of execution for a VHD mount, you may prefer to use Method 2 through Task Scheduler. The resolution applies for Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro.
