Windows XP - Backup Your Data and Avoid Data Loss

Maintaining backup of data is the most important task that user can performs in his/her computer. A data can be anything and present in any form on user computer like Word document, Excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint presentation, file, folder, notepad document and many more. If you don’t maintain backup copy of your data, you may risk of data loss.

Hard drive failure is the most common cause for the data loss from the computer; it stores the data that you save in your computer. It has been seen that there are some viruses program that not only affect the computer but delete the important files and folders. So it is very important to use an effective anti-virus program and update it continuously.

Backup Your Data: Backup is like second life of data so it is very important to backup your data, here you will learn about how to backup data on Windows XP machine. I am running Windows XP professional, version 5.1 in my computer


Steps to Backup:To complete the backup of your data, you need to perform following steps:
First of all run NTBackup.exe with the help of run command, I have simplified the sub-steps with the lines as below.

Start -> Run -> ntbackup.exe -> Ok


After clicking ‘Ok’, you will see ‘Backup or Restore’ welcome wizard. It will help you in backing up or restoring files & settings in your machine. Click on the ‘Next’ button to proceed further.


If you want to backup files or settings then choose first option otherwise choose second option for restoring files & settings. Now click on the ‘Next’ button to backup or restore files and settings.


Now specify the items that you want to backup from your computer, you have four options:

  • My Documents and settings
  • Everyone’s documents and settings
  • All information of this computer
  • Let me choose what to backup

I have chosen 4th option i.e. ‘Let me choose what to backup’ because I want to take backup of my most important file. You can choose any option from the list. And click ‘Next’ to proceed.


You will see below screen on your desktop.


You need to tick on all your specified files that you want to take backup. For all files, just tick the specified folder. I have shown it in below picture.


Now choose the destination location and new name of your backup files & settings.


Click on the ‘Finish’ button to complete the backup process.





Important Notes:
·         Make sure that destination location has enough space to backup files & settings.
·         Backup time is directly proportional to the amount of data that you have selected for the backup.
·         Please make sure there is no any uncertain activities occur during the backup process.
·         Always choose another destination location for backup instead of same computer because you can access your backup file when system crash; until your backup file “.bkf” not corrupt.
·         Backup is like second life for the data so always create backup copy of your data.

Backup File Corruption:The file extension of backup file is ‘.bkf’ and the bkf file gets corrupt too. If your bkf file has been corrupted then you can’t restore your data from the bkf file. It is the time to use your second backup file if you have maintained otherwise use BKF repair software to repair the file.

Fix Excel Error - The file you are trying to open is in different format than specified by the file extension

I got below error message when I tried to open my Excel file:

“The file you are trying to open is in different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupt and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?”


I clicked on the ‘Yes’ button to open my file.



But MS Excel did not open my file. There is a blank workbook. I was shocked because we were updating this workbook since last three years. 


This is how I repair it:

Open & Repair: I tried this method by following below steps:
Office Button->Open->Select your file->Click arrow next to open button->Open & Repair

When I tried above steps, got another pop-up message
Excel can perform checks while opening the workbook and attempt to repair any corruption it detects, or extract just the data (formulas and values) from the workbook.
•    Click Repair if you want to recover as much as of your work as possible.
•    Click Extract Data if Excel was previously unable to repair the workbook.


I clicked on ‘Repair’ button to recover data from workbook.


But Excel failed to repair my corrupt workbook and again opened a blank workbook as shown in the below screenshot.

Then I tried ‘Extract Data’ as shown in the below screenshot.

And got below warning message and clicked on the ‘Convert to Values’ as shown in the below image.
This workbook may contain formulas with references that Excel cannot recover. Do you want to convert these formulas to values, or recover as much of the formulas as possible?

But Excel is unable to read the file and Excel disappeared.






Open Office: I have heard that Open Office is able to recover data from corrupt MS Excel file; I tried it but it also failed to repair excel file.

Move the File: I copied the file and send to another machine. When I opened the file on new machine same error message appeared and suggested to repair the file using ‘Open & repair’ which I already tried on the old machine.

Restore from Backup: I was not lucky enough because I had not maintained any backup copy of the file. So always remember, maintain a backup copy of all your important files. Backup is the best method to resolve any types of corruption. It minimize the change of data loss and business time if you have maintained a crucial business data in the excel workbook.

Excel Repair Tool: At last I tried a paid excel repair tool which shows me the preview of the corrupt file if software avail to repair it otherwise don’t purchase it. It fixes my problem in very quick time. You can see more information about the product to click here.

Things you Need to be Careful about while Installing Multiple Versions of MS Word on a Single Computer

All of you must be familiar with Microsoft Office Word (or MS Word) as a word processor from Microsoft. In fact, MS Word is one of the prominent components of MS Office suite, which not only is used at corporate level, but typical home users use it as well for their personal and professional works. Today, since different versions MS Word (i.e. MS Word 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, and a few earlier versions) are available, people upgrade to a newer version whenever it is available to them.


However, people do have more than one version of MS Word (i.e. multiple versions of MS Office) installed on their computer. It may sound awkward, but yes, it is true that you too may need to install multiple versions of MS Word on your computer. Do you wonder why? Well, suppose you prepare your college assignment on MS Word 2007, which you have to submit to your tutor via email. Likewise, some students may create their assignment on MS Word 2010, whereas one or more may use Office 2003. After all students are done submitting the assignment to the tutor, he must have at least MS Word 2010 installed on his computer so as to open them. This is because a Word document created in a later version (let’s say word 2007) can be opened in an earlier version (let’s say Word 2003) In case he has Word 2003; he will have to install Word 2007 or 2010 as well.

Is it Feasible?
Do you wonder how it is feasible to install multiple versions of MS Word simultaneously on a single computer? Well, even though it is feasible, even Microsoft does not recommend going for it, especially on computers having Terminal Services enabled.



Tip 1: Disable Terminal Services if you need to install multiple versions of MS word (or MS Office) on a single computer.

What should be the Installation Order?
Well, in case you want to go for installing multiple versions of MS Word simultaneously on a single computer, you must follow the following order of installation:

Office 2003 > Office 2007 > Office 2010 >Office 2013

According to the aforementioned order of installation, you need to install earlier version before a later one, as this is the order in which ‘registry keys’, ‘shared programs’, ‘file name extensions’, and other settings are managed for each version of the MS Office and programs.

Tip 2: In case you uninstall one of the Office suites, you will have to reinstall remaining ones to work in an intended way.

Issues with Multiple versions of MS Word
In case you have MS Word 2007 and 2003 installed on your computer, you might have experienced that Word 2007 takes a bit longer time to open. This is because Word 2007 has to auto-register itself on that particular computer. Well, you can increase its launching speed by skipping the so-called auto-registration process. However, you must be careful while doing this, as it may cause Word functioning incorrectly. In this regard, you need to follow the steps discussed underneath:

Tip: By following these steps, you can certainly skip the auto-registration process. However, any glitch during this task may cause failure of registry. Thus, make sure you back up the registry before initiating the steps to modify it.

  • With MS Word Exited, click Start menu and type regedit in the Search box, and then hit the Enter key.
    • (In Windows XP, click Start menu > Run window and proceed.)
  • Type administrator password if you are prompted.
  • In the folder than opens, locate the following registry sub key:
    • “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options”
  • With the registry sub key selected, point to Edit > New > DWORD Value
  • Type NoReReg and hit the Enter key.
  • Now, right click NoReReg and choose Modify.
  • Type 1 in the Value Data box and click OK.
  • Go to File menu and select Exit to end up registry editing.

Windows Installer Message in MS Word
Windows Installer starts automatically when you run MS Word 2007, in case of multiple versions of MS Word are installed on your computer. Besides, a message, stating Windows Installer is preparing also appears before Word 2007 is launched. If you click Cancel, the installer is exited, and Word starts.
Do you know why Windows Installer appears? Well, it appears when the version of Word you launch is not the registered one.

Conditional Formatting in Excel: How to Change the Background Color of Cells Based on Values in the Cell


Conditional formatting in MS Excel allows you to apply different formatting options on one cell or more cells with certain specified conditions. It is very helpful to identify the differences in a wide range of values at a glance. This feature in Excel gives you the ability to color rows, hide duplicate, hide errors and highlight items.

This article explains that how you can change the background color of cells according to their values.

Example: You have a spreadsheet of average marks obtained by students in a exam and you want to figure out overall performance quickly, then you can color each cell of average marks according to cell's value. It is the easiest way to see at a glance relevant marks.

I am just taking few names of students and their marks in particular subjects randomly.


In above example Overall Average is the average marks of students in their exam and you want to color background of these cells on the basis of their marks. So that you can easily figure out who is failed, who has got good grade and who has got excellent grade.

I will color each cell's background of Overall Average marks depending on a scale. Let me decide the scale...

  • If a student has scored average marks between 0 and 40 then he/she is failed and color will be Red.
  • If a student has scored average marks between 40 and 60 then color will be Blue and it is average grade.
  • If a student has scored average marks between 60 and 80 then color will be Yellow and it is good grade.
  • If a student has scored average marks between 80 and 100 then color will be Green and it is excellent grade.

You can choose colors according to your benchmark. I have chosen it randomly to make the differences between each range of overall average marks.

To do this, follow these steps:

1. Select all the cell that you want to apply this formatting; I have selected B8 to G8.
Select > B8 to G8

2. Now go at the top of screen and select Home tab. Now click Conditional Formatting on the ribbon and select Manage Rules.
Home > Conditional Formatting > Manage Rules

3. Now you will see the pop window of Conditional Formatting Rules Manager.
4. Now click on New Rule to set color of cells red for marks between 0 and 40.
Conditional Formatting Rules Manager > New Rule

5. Now you will see New Formatting Rule window. In the pop-up window of Select Rule Type section, choose the second one “Format only cells that contain”.
New Formatting Rule > Select Rule Type > Format only cells that contain

6. In Edit the Rule Description section select Cell Value in first drop down box, between in second drop down box, type 0 in third drop down box and 40 in the last drop down box.
Format only cells with: > Cell Value > between > 0 > 40

7. Now click on Format and you will see a pop-up window of Format Cells.


































8. Now click on Fill tab and choose the red color from the drop-down menu of Color section and click on OK.
Format Cells > Fill > Color > Red > OK



































When you will click on OK in previous step then you get return back to New Formatting Rule window and preview box of Format will shows color red. Now click on OK.

10. Now you will get back return to Conditional Formatting Rules Manager window.
















11. You are done with first rule, if Cell value is between 0 and 40 then
color will be Red.
12. Now click on New Rule and make second rule of cell value between 40 and 60 (color will be blue). To do these just follow all methods that you had done before. When you are done with second rule then Conditional Formatting Rules Manager window will look like this.

















13. Now do the same thing to set your rest of the rules. When you are done with all your rules then Conditional Formatting Rules Manager window will look like this.


















14. Click on OK and your Overall Averages cell will look like this.
 
In above sheet you can easily figure out who has failed (red color) and who has scored good grade (green color) at a glance. These steps are applicable on MS Excel 2007 and 2010.

How to Fix DOCX Error Message

MS Word users often come across an error message or encounter a problem wherein their precious Word document becomes completely inaccessible. Both these situations are annoying, as you cannot access your Word document and cannot work on it. In such situations, the backup of your file works as a boon, but what should be the resolution for the people who do not have the backup of their file? Well, for such users, MS Office provides a utility named as ‘Open and Repair’.


By using this utility, you can repair your corrupt Word document and restore all the data stored in it. However, you need not panic even in such situations because for such cases, we are providing you some other remedies as well. Let us understand it all with a practical example:

A critical error message that MS Word 2007 and 2010 users encounter while trying to open their Word file is:

The file <document filename> cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents.

The error message is specific to .docx users of the above versions of Word. However, when you click on the ‘Details’ button, you will get the additional information:

“The name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag.”

Moreover, the popup screen also provides the information about the location to where the error is located in your Word XML file (this information contains the exact line and column). The main cause of this error message, which is described at the Microsoft’s website, is:

Cause: This problem is related to the Math tags only and occurs when a graphical object or text box is grounded to the same paragraph that has the equation itself. However, the error does not occur until the document is saved or re-edited and saved again.

Resolutions: A resolution for this error message can be ‘Open and Repair’ method of MS Office. Follow the below mentioned steps to use this method:

Open and Repair: Generally, this option works by it when Word encounters a corrupt document file. However, when the corruption is severe, then you have to follow the manual steps for using this tool, which are:
  • Start MS Word.
  • Go to the ‘Microsoft Office Button’ and click ‘Open’.
  • The ‘Open’ dialog box opens, and from there, select the file that you want to open.
  • However, do not click to select this file, but click the down arrow available at the side of ‘Open’ button, and then click ‘Open and Repair’.
Sometimes, this ‘Open and Repair’ function fails to resolve the above error message and repair your .docx file. For such situations, you can try out another simple and quick workaround and restart your normal working with this file. 

Follow the below mentioned steps to use this method:
  1. Log into your Windows Live or Hotmail account; however, if you do not have the one, then create a new account.
  2. Hover your mouse over the top menu on ‘Office’, and then click ‘Your Documents’ option.
  3. Your next step is to navigate to the ‘Add files’ option, select your corrupt .docx file from the location, and upload it to Office docs.
  4. After this, go to the ‘My Documents’ folder, and then click ‘Edit in Browser’.
  5. Your docx file opens in the browser. Note: The preferred browser for this method is Internet Explorer only, as it does not work on Mozilla or Chrome. Therefore, it is said to use Internet Explorer.

In the browser, you have an option of opening your document file in MS Word. However, before opening the document, you have to fix the problem related to it. Generally, a document with table of contents comes across such situations, especially when you try to save it and Word is unable to read the table of contents. Deleting the table of contents is the only way to remove the corruption. After deleting the table of contents, save the document, and then select the option ‘Open in Word’ on the browser to open this document in MS Word.

If everything works fine, then this process will launch the MS Word 2007 on your computer and you can see your document, but without the table of contents. However, you can easily rebuild another table of contents in your document and save it all over again. This fix generally works for all and reopens your MS Word file, which was completely inaccessible.

However, if this process too fails to do any needful, then use of professional Word recovery software is recommended. Reliable software for MS Word recovery repairs corrupt or inaccessible MS Word file that is damaged due to any reason and restores all its contents without modifying it.

You can opt for any of the above-mentioned resolutions, but going for a professional tool is always the best way to overcome data loss caused due to Word file corruption. However, if you have the backup of your files, then you need to opt for any of these resolutions, as you can easily restore your data from it.

Normally, all reliable professional tools of this category provide their demo versions as well. Therefore, you can opt for the demo first, and after understanding it with trail version, you can opt for the full version of the tool and perform the recovery of your docx file, which is unable to be recovered with other methods.
