Adobe Photoshop 7.0 (not elements) will not save any files to the Hard drive.

    I don't, but you have been.
    I didn't complain: I stated a fact:

    "A whole system backup on my own desk machine is about 850Gb. I
    don't have to back that up in its entirety too many times to have a
    backup storage problem. And then, I have other machines to backup
    as well."

    You then switched to the subject of restoring:

    "anyway, in the event of a restore, you're going to have to piece it
    all together, which is a pain and also time consuming."

    I responded:

    "I've never had to do a restore since the days of WS2000."

    .... so then we were away on the subject of restoring. In the same
    article as the above, I wrote:

    "I don't entirely trust the things which can happen to the registry.
    I've seen weird behaviour ...

    I would rather start off with a clean reinstall. It takes a while
    but it is a method less prone to inheriting errors than just
    reinstalling from a backup."

    ... which is how we got to where we are now.

    Thanks, Mick, for the follow-up...even though, it's been drowned out

    i'm not ranting. i'm telling you the facts.

    again, it appears to work *so far*.

    the problem is adobe has not done a full qualification of ps7 in win7.
    the combination is *not* supported. period.

    unless it's qualified, nobody can say it 'worked just fine', including
    you.

    he might be lucky and have little to no problems, or he might not be so
    lucky.

    why take chances? $50 and he gets something that is not only fully
    supported, but does more and much faster too.

    very simple.

    I tried a few newer programs but they all seem too " auto"
    I like Photoshop 7.0 and will stick with it, it will likely see me
    out.

    the automatic features can be disabled.
    good luck with it. hopefully you don't run into other problems.

    And you ae fully aware of which features the OP wants, that are included
    in CS7, that are not available in some $50 dollar program.
    I'll give you 2/3 of my winnings if today you pick the numbers on the
    next lottery ticket I buy. I will post a copy of the ticket so that you
    may verify my purchase. No monetary risk to you. But, if yo don't get at
    least 4 numbers correct, every subsequent post of your will have the
    following statement. 'Nospam admits to not beirng able to distinguishing
    facts from opinion." Capitalization and mispellings will be included.
    Are you willing?

    I think nospam was in reference to Photoshop Elements for $50. PS 7 is
    pretty old, and there's a chance that PSE will actually feature-match it
    pretty well.

    first of all, it's not 'some $50 dollar program'.

    second, are you going to guarantee he will not have any additional
    problems in running an app which has never been qualified to run on the
    operating system he's using?

    what part of 'unsupported' do you not understand?

    it might work, but it might not.
    you have that backwards.

    since you know that non-qualified software will work without issue, how
    about *you* pick the numbers for *me*.
    you're an idiot.

    i was indeed, not just any '$50 dollar program'.
    not only feature match it but offer quite a bit more, and without any
    worries of unexpected problems.

    wrong.

    first you brought up disk space, then you said you're concerned about
    existing corruption. no amount of disk space can fix existing
    corruption. it is you who has confused the two.
    disk space is cheap.
    that's the whole point of a backup, having something from which to
    restore when (not if) something goes wrong.
    then you're very lucky and should buy a lottery ticket.

    you also should consider ceasing to make backups and then repurpose
    those drives, since you 'never had to do a restore'.
    that's the point of having a backup.

    at some point, it *will* happen unless you are *really* lucky.

    as they say, there are two types of users, those who have had a hard
    drive failure and those who will have one.
    which is an entirely separate issue than backups.
    because you're confusing existing registry corruption with backing up.
    they are two totally different things.

    You deny that you have been confusing your thoughts about two
    different failure modes and now you are confusing what I said about
    disk space with what I said about corruption - presumably corrupted
    files.

    I did comment that backing up everything would take up a lot of space
    but then I went on to write:

    "The most important content is the user data, all of which is on a
    separate drive in my computer and which can be addressed as a
    block. The settings are entangled in and a pain to extract from
    what I call the system drive which is a physically separate device
    from the user drive. I know you would have me backup the whole kit
    and caboodle just for the sake of convenience but I am afraid the
    idea of copying so much ever-changing rubbish offends me."

    ... so it should have been clear that it's not lack of disk space
    which makes me do things as I do.

    Then, re failures, after several times explaining my lack of
    confidence in the registry after a blue-screen event which permanently
    "I was not talking about a mechanical failure but a system failure,
    wherein the software on the drive is about to tie itself in a knot.
    Copying that software back on to either the original physical drive
    or on to a new physical drive still leaves you with a drive, the
    software on which is about to tie itself in a knot."
    Why on earth back up a corrupted registry?

    i'm not the least bit confused.
    you need to get over being offended.

    it's far simpler to back up everything and then restore what you need
    if you don't want all of it, or preferably, restore everything so that
    you're where you were just before the drive failed.
    then why did you bring it up?
    again, two failure modes.

    you can always restore to a point in time before the corruption
    occurred. unfortunately, windows doesn't do that particularly well but
    that's a failure of windows, not the backup strategy.
    why on earth use a system with a corrupted registry?

    fix that first.

    Just to point out one of the problems arising from you recommendation.
    You have to know that it is corrupted.
