I have been using TurboBackup 8 for backing up and synchronizing system data on my desktop and laptop which is on a Windows XP 64 bit system.  I have now upgraded to Windows 8 and the program just shows a black screen when launched.  Any ideas why?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Donna Davis ;

It seems to me that your version of TurboBackup is experiencing some technical problems with Windows 8. Even though the manufacturer claims that it's compatible with Windows 8, it can still not be fully optimized for the aforementioned operating system.

I advise you to upgrade to the latest version of TurboBackup (version 9.1). It can be downloaded for free from Cnet.

Hello Donna Davis,

                      If you want to use backup software for your windows then you can use the default software that is present in your windows version and you can make and restore your system original settings in a very simple way. Instead of using any other software you can get your backup by using the default windows platform. So i recommend you to use that one you can also use other backups to get restored by using that software.

Since you are using an older version of TurboBackup, the latest version at the moment is TurboBackup 9.2, and you try to use it on Windows 8, you should check if the version you are using supports Microsoft Windows 8. Because if it doesn’t, you cannot use it on Windows 8 and you have to uninstall it.

On the other hand, if you badly needed to use the program and your computer is fast enough to run two operating systems simultaneously, one workaround is to use a virtual machine. Download Oracle VirtualBox and install it. Once installed, start VirtualBox and create a virtual machine. Next, install Windows XP on that virtual machine and then install your version of TurboBackup on Windows XP.

But if your machine is not fast enough to run a virtual machine, you can download the latest trial version of TurboBackup, TurboBackup 9.2, and try using it. The latest version at the moment supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.x.
