    Default Upgrades & BackUps & a Wish

    I saw on a t-shirt this slogan - "Yesterday was Armageddon - Today we have a
    problem".

    I completed my upgrade (upgrade, not clean install) from Vista x64 to
    Windows 7 (NOF users did not seem to have any problems with it). NOF does
    everything it's supposed to in editing my existing sites. I have only one
    problem: Can't make a new site. It will create the User folder, the Assets
    folder, then stop. "An error occurred while creating the site. Please check
    if you have enough disk space". - I have 158GB free.
    Already aware of "Run As Administrator", I also followed instructions at
    http://support.netobjects.com/index....article/000313 and even went
    further to gave every possible allowance in advanced and security features
    for read/write. Nothing helped so I'm guessing I need to reinstall NOF (so
    close yet so far in the OS upgrade).

    Remembering someone asked if there is a quick solution to backup and restore
    a multitude of sites from hiccups to crashes, this is about the best: Be in
    the habit of creating a templates for your sites. Templates are better
    backups than the backup nod files. Consider those as 1 up 'quick restores'
    and templates for doomsday restoration.

    My NOF wish; Under Current Site Options, in the Versioning Tab, Replace the
    Versions Manager with a "Template Manager" and follow that through to the
    publish buttons were the version manager tick box is.

    Yes, templates are for doomsday, but what happens if the disk holding
    the template files dies on you.......doomsday's revenge!

    Sure, I've been caught; we all have - but with system images and offsite
    backup of templates, I've never yet completely lost a site......famous
    last words!

    I suspect your "out of disk space" problem lies more in the OS upgrade
    than NOF. Frankly, an in-situ OS upgrade is a scary thing to do on a
    "production" machine.

    Just a thought: take template based backups of your existing sites,
    remove NOF completely and re-install it as a clean install on your newly
    upgraded Win 7 OS. If there is a lingering file/folder permission
    problem from the OS upgrade, that ought to fix it. Then you can
    re-import your existing sites.

    Richard.

    Ya, that is exactly my plan Richard but I just wish I had considered making
    templates as part of my save & publish process instead of now going through
    every site to prepare for import after reinstall. Thought maybe others could
    benefit to include templates as part of that regular work flow for some
    insurance.
