Create System Image & Restoring Image in Windows 8.1

To Create a System Image Backup

Connect the External HDD and check for the Drive Letter (in this case its” E :”) .Also makes sure that the back-up drive has more storage room than the space used of your C: drive.

  • Right click Start menu and select Windows PowerShell (admin) ,Click yes to the User Account Control if prompted

    In the powershell enter the following command:

     

    wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:E: -include:C: -allCritical –quiet


     

    Note: The above command tells the Windows to back up the C: drive onto the E: drive, including all critical volumes containing the system’s state. The -quiet switch tells the cmdlet to run without prompting you.

     

To Restore from that System Image Backup

    To restore a system image backup, you’ll need to boot from Windows 8.1 installation media, or system repair disc. Insert the Windows 8.1 installation media or system repair disc and reboot your computer.

Press Enter if you see “Press any key to boot from CD/DVD

 


In the Windows Setup window, click the Repair your computer link. On the bottom left.

    

Click the Troubleshoot icon from the Choose an option Window.

    

Click the Advanced Options icon in the troubleshooting Window.

    

In the Advance Options window click on System Image Recovery  icon.

    

Choose the target operating system which would be the Windows 8.1

    

Windows 8.1 will scan your computer to detect any recent images created.

Because we booted of the Disk the drive letter might change but not the drive name or date and time.

So click on next in the Re-image your computer window.

Check-mark  Format and repartition disks. Click next.

Confirm the re-imaging process by clicking on finish and click on yes to the warning saying that the drive will be re-image from the back up you created.

Once you re-start your computer should boot exactly the same as when you created the image backup.


 

Installation of ADB in Windows

Install ADB with SDK

Step 1

Make sure that the required drivers for your android device are properly installed on your PC. If you’re not sure then download and install the latest versions from your device manufacture’s website. Below are the links to download software of various manufacturers. Choose yours and install the required software.

Step 2

Download and install the Android SDK (Software Development Kit) Starter package from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html.

An “android-sdk_rXX-windows.zip” file which you can extract to any place on your PC and the adb program will work from there. For easiness with commands, extract it to C:\

Step 3

For adb to work on SDK Starter package we have to add Platform Tools part to the SDK. Below are the steps:

  1. Open root directory of the SDK (for e.g. if you’ve installed or extracted it on :/ then go to this address “c:\android-sdk-windows”
  2. Find “SDK Manager” and double-click on it to execute.
  3. It will check for updates on the Android website, and a pop up window will appear showing a list of available downloads. Just add the “Android SDK Platform Tools” and reject everything else

Step 4

On your Android device go to Settings->Applications->Development and make sure that “USB Debugging” is ticked. It’s essential for ADB to work!

Now plug your phone into your PC (using original cable that’s supplied by your manufacturer is recommended when working with ADB). If a window pops up saying “installing drivers” then wait for it to complete installation

Step 5

Open command prompt from the menus, or Open “Run > and type cmd” to execute Command Prompt and navigate to “c:\
android-sdk\platform-tools”

Now insert the following code:

C:\> adb devices

This should display something like the following:

List of devices attached

XYZ12345ABC device

If you can see your device in the list then congratulations! You’ve done well. You are now good to start using adb. Enjoy!

If it’s NOT appearing in the list make sure that drivers are properly installed and you’ve enabled “USB Debugging

Use Any Android Device As A PC Gamepad With DroidPad Via Wi-fi

First of all, you will need to download the desktop client as well as the Android app to enable pairing between both devices. Once downloaded and installed, just run the app on both devices and allow them to connect. The desktop client has a pretty simple interface and provides you with a list of devices available for connection. Make sure that the Android device and PC are both connected to the same network, or the phone is connected to the PC via a USB cable. In both cases, the desktop client will automatically detect the phone when you run the app. Select it from the list and click Start to connect to the device.


The Adjust menu allows you to reorder and tweak axes for controlling the mouse and joystick. The Reorder Axes dialog box lets you configure the axes and buttons, while the Tweak Axes window lets you tinker with settings for the tilt sensor, rotation sensor and on-screen slider sensitivity.


The interface of the Android app is divided into 3 sections: Joystick, Mouse and Slideshow. Each section provides a different functionality to the user. Under the Joystick tab, there are eight joystick layouts available, each one listed with its description. They are different from each other in terms of the number of buttons and sliders available for use. For instance, the Joystick Layout 8 consists of eight buttons and five sliders.

 

 

 

The Settings menu lets you enter a custom device name, reverse the X and Y axes, change screen brightness and layout settings, and specify the port number and update interval for the connection.

 

DroidPad’s Windows app works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, while the Android app requires Android 2.1 Eclair or higher.
