HP Simple Backup Error 410

by Moses16 / October 29, 2004 4:30 AM PDT

HP SIMPLE BACKUP ? Version 4.2 OEM Key name SBWIN32.EXE

Windows 98SE
Hard drive: at least 3Gb free/ 192Mb RAM
Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.1106IS;SP1
HP CD-Writer Model 9110i
Adaptec software (DirectCD;Easy CD Creator;UDF Reader)

1.With the original CD?s that came with the CD Writer I could successfully make Rocovery Diskettes and Disaster Recovery Set[DRS]
2.Using HP Simple Backup I successfully made a Full System Backup (about a year ago. Shame on me!).
3.Now attempting to make Recovery Diskettes, I got a message to insert my ?Windows 98SE CD-ROM?, followed by ?Add/Remove Program Properties? window saying that various files not being found ? such as ?command.com? ?drvspace.bin? ?winboot.sys? ?ebd.cab?
N.B. I found that ?command.com? etc were not on the Windows 98SE CD.
4.Since HP felt my files may be corrupted I did a re-installation(in SAFE mode) using the latest, updated, version (hsb42enn.exe) from the HP Web site at:


and successfully made Recovery Diskettes and Disaster Recovery Set[DRS]

5.I am now experiencing similar problems.
6.Unzipped Windows\Command\EBD files
7.Unzipped Windows Base5.cab files
8.HP Simple Backup asked to insert ?Windows 98SE CD-ROM?. Without inserting the Windows 98SE CD-ROM, I clicked OK. The ?Add/Remove Program Properties? window stated that ?command.com? was not found. In the ?Copy files from? section, scrolling gave me a choice of:
9.Choosing the first (EDB) I Made and Tested Recovery Diskettes(2) ? OK
10. Attempting to make a Full System Backup (whether I select to make or not make Recovery Diskettes) I get the following message in the ?HP Simple Backup? window:
?Error while preparing bootable media. Please ensure there is enough free disc space.?
?Error 410 C:\Program files\HP Simple Backup\TMP1.dir\amsint.mpd?

Can some kind soul please help me?
Thanking you in advance

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
