recommendation for disk clone software

Eric Caron <ecaron1@...>
 

hello list,

Is there a simple possibly free, program to make a bootable backup of my windows hard disk.

I'm looking for a way to back up my internal disk so that in case of disaster I can restore it from a external disk and have it revert back to a earlier state.
Simple to use and Jaws friendly would be very helpful!

Anyone have any tips?

Re: Bank Websites with Jaws

Steve <k8sp@...>
 

As far as I know, most of them should work well; I use Chase and a regional bank site and they both work well with either IE8/9 or Firefox. Most financial institutions have close to the same standards.

ONe thing some banks require, which you won't be able to do, is that they do a "security check" where they show a picture you previously selected and a pass-phrase. If you go to their page and the picture or phrase doesn't match what you initially specified, then you know it was hijacked and you shouldn't transact anything. The phrase is visible, but the picture obviously is not accessible. Chase does not do this, though and neither does Comerica..

I recall when I got started on iBanking, I had an issue with my security settings that wasn't letting me pay my bill. I called up my regional bank's customer support and spoke to a lady. I said as I was making an adjustment to IE's security settings that I used a screen reader. She said "Do you use Jaws?" I said as a matter of fact I did, and she said they made sure their site was optimized with Jaws before theyp put it on-line.

Hi friends,

I'm looking to set up a new bank account and wondered if anyone can give me
some insights into their experience with their bank's website accessibility
with Jaws. Whatever bank I go to must have a website that will work well
with Jaws. By the way, I'm using Jaws 12.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Michael

I am told most do have decent websites for vips,but you need to think
further ahead than that, of the 17 banks being sued by the way 3 are the
best known we have in Uk,rest most likely in Usa,hope james will forgive

That is the answer. I just switched over and it disappeared. Personally, I like the xp start menu, but I switched control panel to classic.

Hi Dave,

I found the reason I am not showing the pin to start menu option. It is
because I am running the Classic Start Menu. It does show if I run the XP
Start
Menu. Take care.

I decided to respond on-list because I know this is something others are
interested in, and might be making the same mistake. The problem is that
you're not on a file, you're on a folder. That's why you have the
"explore"
item in the context menu. You need to be on the actual jfw.exe file. on my
system, the full path is:
C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\11.0\jfw.exe
Obviously, I have Jaws 11. So when you get to the Jaws folder, don't press
applications. Press enter. Then go to whatever number version you have and
press enter. You'll find the jfw.exe file in there. Now you can press
applications, and find "pin to start menu".

Re: Adding items to Start Menu... another way

inthane <inthaneelf@...>
 

I knew that but thanks, I found this out about an hour ago when I had some time to look into it. and I stated that it might have to do with the view used in a prior message as well, way earlier today, as in the second reply to Dave's messages!
I'm a hardware tech, I knew my machines weren't "messed up" and I even mentioned that it might be that view difference in my prior set, but no'o'o'o'o! I'm totally wrong according to a number of folks out here

well they can stuff it

I do have a good idea what I am talking about, and I will research things if there is a definite discrepancy!

HI Inthane,

You don't have messed up XP computers. If you run your start menu in the
Classic menu it doesn't show the pin to start menu option, but if you use
the XP Start menu it will show it. I am speaking of using the classic menu
in Task bar & staart menu properties. Take care.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're trying to do, but I don't know why
you're going through so many steps. If you want to add a program to the
start menu, just go to the program, press the applications key, and choose
the "pin to start menu" command.

Hi,
Somebody wrote:


Hello there;

Someone was asking how to add item to the start menu?

Are we asking for windows XP?

I wasn't sure about that. If using Windows 7, the previous directions
about pinning items to the Start Menu are correct. If we're talking about
XP, the procedure is almost as simple.
1. Find the program that you want to add to the Start Menu.
2. Press the Application key or Shift-f10, then arrow down to Copy and
press Enter.
3. Go to the Start button and use the application key again. Arrow down
to Explore All Users and press Enter.
4. The Start Menu tree view will be open in Windows Explorer. Press Tab
once, then ctrl+v.
5. Press Alt+F4 to close Windows Explorer.
6. Open the Start menu as you normally do and you should find the new
entry.

Tom

Again, not sure why you're doing so many steps for such a simple operation. I know some folks like to take the scenic rout when they travel, but there's nothing to see here. Just go to the item you want to add, press applications, and use the pin to start menu command. done.

Hi All,

Below is a different way to use the applications / context menu to add items
to the start menu if you are running XP.

1. Open Documents & Settings in Local Disc C.
2. Open your name folder and press the letter " S " until you land on "
Start Menu ."
3. Press the applications / context menu key.
4. Arrow up or down until you get to " Create Shortcut " and press enter.
5. Now, you have a Start Menu shortcut at the bottom of your list. Cut this
shortcut and paste it into the Send To folder. If it reads "Shortcut to
Start Menu ", highlight it, press the F2 key to edit it, and delete shortcut
to, so it reads Start Menu only, and press enter to save the change. Now,
cut this and paste it into the Send To folder.
Now, if there is a icon on your desktop or a program you want to have in
your
Start Menu, just highlight it, press the applications / context menu key,
arrow to Send To and press enter or press the letter " N " for the Send To
folder and press enter, Now, arrow up or down to the Start Menu selection
or press the letter " S " until you have the Start Menu selection
highlighted, then press enter. You now have this program / Icon in your
Start Menu.
With a new addition to the Start Menu another thing to do is make sure
everything is in order. You do this by pressing the Windows key to open the
Start Menu, pressing the applications / context menu key, arrowing up to "
Sort By Name ", and pressing enter.

Hope this helps. Take care.
Mike

Re: Adding items to Start Menu... another way

inthane <inthaneelf@...>
 

nonono, I was on the file... and I tried after receiving your message to which this is the reply

I also tried your method after navigating to the exact file in the program files folder and sitting on the jfw.exe file and still got exactly what you see below! from both locations, the jaws 11 menu/jaws shortcut in the classic start menu and the jfw.exe file in program files\freedom scientific\jaws\jaws11\jfw.exe

from the applications menu:
Open
Run as...
Copy Path
Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials...
WinRAR
WinZip
Send To
Cut
Copy
Create Shortcut
Delete
Rename
Properties

from the file menu:
Open
Run as...
Copy Path
Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials...
WinRAR
WinZip
Send To
New
Create Shortcut
Delete
Rename
Properties
Close

I think, as I said before, that the difference may be in the options provided along side the view used for the start menu!

in fact... I know it is due to that very difference, since I went and changed back to the standard XP menu and got this when I found jaws 11 in the first menu and hit the applications key on it:
Open
Run as...
Copy Path
Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials...
WinRAR
WinZip
Pin to Start menu
Send To
Copy
Remove from This List
Rename
Properties

so strangeness resolved if you want the automated option and the *gruff* new start menu that most of us avoided like the plague, then switch to the "start menu" option, if you don't mind fixing it for yourself like we have shown how to out here, then stick with your "classic view" menu's

I decided to respond on-list because I know this is something others are interested in, and might be making the same mistake. The problem is that you're not on a file, you're on a folder. That's why you have the "explore" item in the context menu. You need to be on the actual jfw.exe file. on my system, the full path is:
C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\11.0\jfw.exe
Obviously, I have Jaws 11. So when you get to the Jaws folder, don't press applications. Press enter. Then go to whatever number version you have and press enter. You'll find the jfw.exe file in there. Now you can press applications, and find "pin to start menu".

Hi Dave,

Following your steps this is what is in my context menu;Open
Explore
Delete
Rename
Sort by Name

If you have a fix for this, would you please email me off list, since this
is no longer a Jaws issue? Thank you very much for giving me a heads up on
this potential problem. Take care.

Strange. I'm running XP, and I have that option in the context menu. For
example, go to JFW.exe in the freedom scientific folder in the programs
folder. Hit the applications key. The 1st item should be "open". Down
arrow
and the next option is "run as". Down arrow once more and the 3rd item is
"pin to start menu".

Hi Dave, Gerald, & Inthane,

This is what shows in the context menu if I use the Classic Start Menu;

Open
Clipname
Run as...
Copy Path
7-Zip
Restore from snapshot
Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials...
Send To
Cut
Copy
Create Shortcut
Delete
Rename
Sort by Name
Properties
This is what shows in the context menu running the XP Start Menu;

Open
Clipname
Run as...
Copy Path
7-Zip
Restore from snapshot
Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials...
Pin to Start menu
Send To
Cut
Copy
Create Shortcut
Delete
Rename
Sort by Name
Properties

I had totally forgot about how the XP start menu & the Classic start menu
show so differently. Take care.
Mike

I decided to respond on-list because I know this is something others are
interested in, and might be making the same mistake. The problem is that
you're not on a file, you're on a folder. That's why you have the
"explore"
item in the context menu. You need to be on the actual jfw.exe file. on my
system, the full path is:
C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\11.0\jfw.exe
Obviously, I have Jaws 11. So when you get to the Jaws folder, don't press
applications. Press enter. Then go to whatever number version you have and
press enter. You'll find the jfw.exe file in there. Now you can press
applications, and find "pin to start menu".

Hi Dave,

Following your steps this is what is in my context menu;Open

Rename

If you have a fix for this, would you please email me off list, since this
is no longer a Jaws issue? Thank you very much for giving me a heads up
on
this potential problem. Take care.

Strange. I'm running XP, and I have that option in the context menu. For
example, go to JFW.exe in the freedom scientific folder in the programs
folder. Hit the applications key. The 1st item should be "open". Down
arrow
and the next option is "run as". Down arrow once more and the 3rd item is
"pin to start menu".

Hi Dave,

In XP there is not a, pin to start menu, option in the context menu. At
least I have never seen that option on my computers. Also, not everybody
has a, start menu, option in their, Send To, folder. At least, I didn't &
had to add it. Take care.

Again, not sure why you're doing so many steps for such a simple
operation.
I know some folks like to take the scenic rout when they travel, but
there's
nothing to see here. Just go to the item you want to add, press
applications, and use the pin to start menu command. done.

Isn't that reason enough to wonder what's wrong with version 12?

Well, for many of us 12 works just fine, I don't have any problems I have
not had in previous versions, namely occasionally maybe once a month or so
Jaws will go silent for no explained reason that I can find.

Good girl Karen.
I also have not installed JAWS 12 for the same reasons.
Let's hold out for a "working" version of 12 before 13 comes around?
The questions actually should be "When will a stable version of 13 be
available?"

I'm guessing 13 will be out by the end of the year. It's up to you whether
to wait or not. You could always contact Freedom Scientific and ask if
they will honour a purchase of 12; that is, if 13 comes out right after
you buy 12, see if they'll give you the upgrade to 13 at no cost. It's
worth a try.

then you should know that there is no "pin{ in XP. That's my point.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're trying to do, but I don't know why
you're going through so many steps. If you want to add a program to the
start menu, just go to the program, press the applications key, and choose
the "pin to start menu" command.

Hi,
Somebody wrote:


Hello there;

Someone was asking how to add item to the start menu?

Are we asking for windows XP?

I wasn't sure about that. If using Windows 7, the previous directions
about pinning items to the Start Menu are correct. If we're talking
about
XP, the procedure is almost as simple.
1. Find the program that you want to add to the Start Menu.
2. Press the Application key or Shift-f10, then arrow down to Copy and
press Enter.
3. Go to the Start button and use the application key again. Arrow down
to Explore All Users and press Enter.
4. The Start Menu tree view will be open in Windows Explorer. Press Tab
once, then ctrl+v.
5. Press Alt+F4 to close Windows Explorer.
6. Open the Start menu as you normally do and you should find the new
entry.

Tom

Re: Adding items to Start Menu... another way

Mike & Barbara <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Dave,

I have shortcuts for websites that I go to quite often, things from the
desktop that you can't assign shortcut keystrokes to from the desktop, &
various other programs / items that I find it easier to get to from the
start menu rather than navigating to them. In short, a bunch of crap! LOL
LOL

Take care.

I didn't know that. Of course, I've never even come close to the 30
shortcut
limit of the XP start menu. Just out of curiosity, what do you need more
than 30 shortcuts for?

Re: Adding items to Start Menu... another way

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
Yep, it doesn't show up when classic view is in effect, only with those new-fangled menus that came with XP. I switched mine out of classic view and the pin option showed up.

Damn, learn somethin' new every day.

Hamm, most of us running XP have it switched over to classic view for the start menu and don't get this, I'm wondering if it was something that is attached to the "new" view of the menu's

Strange. I'm running XP, and I have that option in the context menu. For example, go to JFW.exe in the freedom scientific folder in the programs folder. Hit the applications key. The 1st item should be "open". Down arrow and the next option is "run as". Down arrow once more and the 3rd item is "pin to start menu".

Hi Dave,

In XP there is not a, pin to start menu, option in the context menu. At
least I have never seen that option on my computers. Also, not everybody
has a, start menu, option in their, Send To, folder. At least, I didn't &
had to add it. Take care.

Again, not sure why you're doing so many steps for such a simple
operation.
I know some folks like to take the scenic rout when they travel, but
there's
nothing to see here. Just go to the item you want to add, press
applications, and use the pin to start menu command. done.
