Is there a way to same program settings when you can't do a system back up?
I have to use a system recovery DVD on my HP Pavilion G Series.
I can't do a system restore. I can't back up my files to DVD. None of these things work. So I've had to order System Recovery DVDs.
HOWEVER, I really don't want to lose all my settings. I guess that the way that Outlook is configured is the biggest thing. But there are also many other aps and programs on my HP and re-tailoring all of them is going to take hours.
Is there a way to export all of my settings in one hit? Obviously I can't back up to DVD through the normal Windows process - but is there another way? An on-line program? Or an alternative back up system to the one that Windows 7 provides?
Many thanks for any help.

I am not an expert in this feild but I know first hand Iyogi.com technicians can help you recover fix or do anything every thing for your computer. One Technicians accidentally deleted all kinds files by mistake I mean operating files not just programs. To the point my HP DV7-6135dx would not start up. I could only get it started in safe mode after several attemps faild. Called them right back for next 6-8 hours another technicians restored every missing file and fixed up what he mess up on. She downloaded a program that recovered missing files..I do not know how External drivers work you might want to ask a computer technicians on how they work as a back up device. If they can store programs on it and settings as well.
