Windows 7: What is AOMEI Information Code:4140?

If you selected Don't use VSS , Aomei will use it's own snapshot driver. It is there in case vss has problems.

Not sure what is wrong with your system, but it seems aomei drivers were unable to install properly.

You can check in the registry, you should have this:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\ambakdrv]
"DisplayName"="ambakdrv"
"Type"=dword:00000001
"Start"=dword:00000000
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000000
"ImagePath"=hex(2):73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,61,00,\
  6d,00,62,00,61,00,6b,00,64,00,72,00,76,00,2e,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{71A27CDD-812A-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F}]
"UpperFilters"=hex(7):61,00,6d,00,62,00,61,00,6b,00,64,00,72,00,76,00,00,00,00,\
  00
If you view your registry with regedit, or similar, it will look like this:

Ok, But I'm doing AOMEI backup of "System Reserved" area......

Is it ok to run a "Command Prompt" command, while that process is going one?

Otherwise, I ran the following two commands (from whs in Post #8) in my other thread:

are they similar? If so see Post # 10 Macrium Reflect Backup Aborted Error Code 0x8004230f

for the results:

Thanks!
Bedankt!
Just post the output of the reg query command please. It's just the display of a registry key.... it doesn't change anything!

AOMEI Backup was Successful!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks go to everyone who helped me! (Reps will go around as soon as I give 10 others--up to 8 now).
Also here is a final Screenshot for anyone who is considering purchasing/using AOMEI (just trying to be complete in my threads!)

What is AOMEI Information Code:4140?-aomei-first-backup-successful-pic-ps17599.jpg

Now one question is left... difficult one!

How do I make certain the copy is 100%???

Norton Ghost let me SEE inside the copy... using Ghost or Windows Explorer!

Of course I can't do it with modern Backup programs like AOMEI

See result below:

What is AOMEI Information Code:4140?-aomei-windows-explorer-cant-use-ps17605.jpg

So now how do I make certain this is a RECOVERABLE/RESTORABILITY of this copy.... without actually doing the restoration? I don't have a lose drive to try it as I don't know if Windows 7 allows for external booting tests while hooked up to a laptop (On a desktop I go into the BIOS and use settings there to allow this external boot.....as a test for Norton stuff.... I've NEVER found or seen (probably I should not) the "bios" on a laptop anywhere.... they just "work" without showing that Bios Step that all my Desktops always ask me to "press F1 to continue or Press F2 to enter Set up" (at least the DELL ones do that).......

Thanks for figuring out next steps for me to take to test this.

The reason I ask, is that I want to test AOMEI somehow....... BEFORE I make the second backup copy that will erase all my OLD NORTON copies on the other external Hard Drive.

You can click on AMEI utilities there. You can mount the image and assign a drive letter to it to restore individual files. And a check for integrity of the backup image.

Did you reenable VSS again in AOMEI backupper?

GREAT replies from everyone!

Hi SIW2, and Kaktussoft!

Great replies! I'll try to get to everyone in turn.... need to copy quotes so everyone else knows who I'm referring to in my copies (and I'll know a week or month from now if I need to consult how to do this again --poor memory)

Will do it one by one... for those online "live" now.. be patient I'll get to everyone!!

Lots of information here!

Hallo Kaktussoft!

You said (you know it just repeating for those who get lost in thread):

1. See the two screenshots below...

What is AOMEI Information Code:4140?-aomei-utilities-1-ps17606.jpg

What is AOMEI Information Code:4140?-aomei-utilities-2-ps17607.jpg

I'm trying to find info how to do this ...... How to devise a "path" for the mounted drive...

Clicking on the button just sent me off into my computer's directory tree file.. lots of help there when I am at a loss what I should do "next".....

I know "some" stuff...enough to know I don't want it to "conflict" against my operating Windows system.... while searching I've had programs do things automatically and erroneously select the windows system file in the other mounted drive.... so have to be careful to mount it as a drive letter different so that its not anywhere near operating (in background) programs---who knows how many? I know I can see in "task" under "processes" but so what? I am always afraid to mess with settings or turn them off in fear they won't turn back on when rebooting computer etc..

Just too careful with these items that I can't get help with in case I do something wrong! Hope you understand...

But would like to know how to mount and check the saved items (quick check will do for now.... I want to get to use Macrium which is the better system soon!)

2. Turn the VSS back on?? I thought if I turn off AOMEI, all settings go with the program... you mean that "don't use VSS" turns it off PERMANENTLY for the laptop, no matter if I restart laptop?

3. By the way, remember my VSS is "broken" and I need to follow instructions from whs in Reg Edit mode to fix it (later on once I have two confirmed copies of my Hard Drives....)

Thanks!

Bedankt!

A few answers more questions

Hi SIW2:

Thanks for your detailed instructions!

Would follow them, but its been a year or more without using Reg Edit, (I've forgotten how to get to that screen) and usually never did it alone, had someone working next to me so I don't mess up things.. but your instructions seem clear:

Yes, as my other thread shows.... I seem NOT to have a working VSS system on this laptop...

See my post above, as I got AOMEI (somehow!!!!) to work once to make a full backup....

Would like to KNOW what is wrong so I don't mess it up next time I do the second or third or fourth, etc copies (incrementals I assume I'll be doing after the first basic saves)---I always update the basic every few months so its full copy and leave the incrementals, which are more subject to interruption for the chance that I'd catch something early and more easily repair it.. has not happened, but that was the idea.....

Thanks for reading all of this! (Sorry for any confusion as I'm going back and forth between the two threads!)

I see this in your output:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\Providers\{262b716e-bb2
3-41b5-aaef-e2c15e767167}

Type REG_DWORD 0x2
Version REG_SZ 1.0
VersionId REG_SZ {312524e0-c869-46ce-849b-7d99a24257cd}

And you have activated "disable VSS" (or something alike) in AOMEI. AOMEI now uses his own VSS-routines.

Just type regedit in start search box.

If Aomei is working, it seems the drivers have installed properly now. Maybe you did a reboot ?



Not sure what you mean by "devise a path".

Aomei will usually show image files if it can find them. If it already listed, just click it to slect.

If not already listed, then sometimes you have to browse to the image.

Click the box that says "path" and browse to the backup location you selected when you created the image. There should be a folder called MyBackup or SystemBackup. Inside there is the image file.
