Not Saving, Have many questions...

So when i start up Logic Pro it gives me this message:
Error Reading/Writing file"com.apple.logic.pro.cs":
Logical End-Of-File reached during read operation.
i have no idea what this means, and gives me no other options except to cancel, and when i press cancel it gives me this:
"The Preferences are not loaded completely
do not save them , as you would overwrite the Preferences file with incomplete data."
and once again give me no other choices then to press ok....
and when i quit out it gives me this message:
"The Preferences Are Not Loaded Completely.
Save them to apple.com.logic.pro.cs anyway?"
i dont know what i should do and i need help with this right away!!!!!

Open the Preferences folder (it's in your home directory's Library) and trash the Logic preferences.
cheers

  • I have many questions, I have called Support,  they refuse to forward or give me Tech Support See Be

    Hi,
    I have many questions, and have had a very frustrating time to get in touch with the correct person.
    I have called support twice, both times even though it was a technical question about cloud, they refused to forward my calls and told me there is NO technicall support for Cloud and that I have to place my questions here in the forum.
    I am CONTINUALLY told to change my password, 2 and 3 times a week.  I am a sysAdmin, my passwords are a MINIMUM of 13 Char/UP/Lower/Number/Special Combo, always have been. They work out to a 100% approval in any algorythm checker.   Yes, I was one of the persons who had their password stolen which has caused me a tad bit of inconvenience, but such is life.   Is This Normal? I have gone on twitter a few times to verify the emails, I have got them so often.
    My "Cloud Sync" Hasn't worked since PhotoShop's Site Closed, I know this beause I stored my 20gigs of files, .ai,  and .eps, .psd eveything that I couldn't move to Revel (which btw, I never got a refund for having to purchase the revel account 20gigs, when photoshop was closed, which also was never refunded.) 
    I actually wasn't too worried about the cloud issue because I only work at home, if I go somewhere else.. work's not going with me
    Since about three weeks ago and currently I am having NOTHING but problems with cloud, The errors in my Event Log are NUMEROUS

    manifest for x86/64bit at both dll files compiled so I cannot review their content.
    However it should be noted at this time, I did not invoke Dreamweaver, the Cloud did, and this is not the first time.
    This particular error occured 5 times in 3 seconds.
    Same two errors at 3:49pm on the 28th.
    Today, I went and bought a new solid state drive. Brand New Fresh OS, Downloaded Cloud, CC, and of course The Edge Products, which I dearly love btw.       Everything seems to be working fine, EXCEPT,
    1.) where did CS6 Products Go?
    2.) Why after being a Faithful Product User/Cloud Supporter for the Last two years, after going through all the trials and tribulations with Adobe, am I being asked to renew my license for a "One Time Per Year Fee" which is MORE than my monthly amount? ( deal: 599.80; payments at 49.95 per month is 599.40 Go Figure? ) So, I'm being asked to pay the same amount, make it a single payment and get half the software, litterally.   Did I miss a paticularly important anouncement?
    3.) EVERYONE OF MY IRREPLACABLE FILES IN MY CLOUD ALL MY AI FILES, are gone. Yesterday, it would seem My having the SYNC TURNED OFF was over-ridden by the system (Adobes) and they have upload 'garbage' files, and my original files, the caligraphy files are no longer there. My gorgeous image of a little boy with flowers is no longer there. I PAID ALMOST A GRAND for these files. Stored them on Adobe, because, well, you deal with images, so you're the best right, that's why I bought extra storage on photoshop.com, then was told I would have to move to revel, but not the ai, eps, or pdf and i don't remember about png's. files, so I moved everything to revel (purchased the extra storage there.) AND put everything on the cloud and turned off my file sync.  Not everyone is an idiot, maybe something is turned off, there's a reason for it, how dare someone override MY SETTINGS. They could have emailed, called, chat, google chat, irc, or snail mailed me, it's pretty easy to get my attention.
    I could just cry.
    lost my files,
    asked to pay one time instead on monthy, and there's not even a discount and no additional incentive. Lost the ability to work without having to be connected to the internet, which will be delimited here very shortly since I'm on comcast.
    and the worst, the very absolutely worst part is this is the SECOND time in a row now, I've had an issue with Adobe that has gone on for over a year while support TELLS ME A PAYING CUSTOMER, that 'gee, sorry, no support for cloud" , "No I can't forward you to a tech" (direct quote) and "The Only support for any cloud issues is the forum"
    How can I handle this in the future, my nerves just can't take it anymore. Seriously, I'm just shaking now I'm so upset about this and I really hate writing something like this, or airing issues in public that really should be, imho, private.

    Hi Ken,
    Wow, I've logged into adobe and never seen your response until now.
    I need to make the forums more of a daily stop I guess.
    Thank you for your response, When I go to the Archives, it states I have none. In addition, previously when I'd tried to move items to the archive, they just disappeared  
    Currently my desktop is not connecting at all, Everytime I connect, it's states "We have now logged you out" and requests I login again.
    I have of course rebooted,
    Gone into taskmanager, killed all the relevant threads,  tried again to login through the desktop, no luck, I'll have to uninstall it, make sure the threads are killed, then reboot it and then reinstall it, but I've not had the time to do that.
    On another note, and just as a point of reference, myself, personally, I hate these "cloud" file repositories (not to be confused with adobe cloud services which I love) but the file repositories themselves imho, are a blackhole of resource usage when one doesn't/isn't using them,
    Is there a way we can use it more of a "ftp" sort of thing, when I want to I can  put files there?  There is no way to "Download" the repository, no way to download the folders.. only individual files and then it takes I think three different steps before the download starts.. I find this very inhibiting.  Just an fyi. for what it's worth.
    Please, feel free to contact me,
    I'm on g+ chat [email protected]

  • Love the Cloud Idea, but I have Many questions about it

    Hi,
    I love the Adobe Cloud Idea, but I was wondering if it is the right for me. I have a very peculiar situation, my job takes me to many different places around the world.
    - My Next job is taking me to Peru and I noticed that it is not on the available countries. I live in the US and I will subscribe from here, but if I go to Peru, would I be able to use it from there, before the 30 day renewal? And what about If I spend 3 month? I read somewhere that I ony have to have an internet connection, but does that mean that if I am in peru with internet nothing will happen? or does it mean that I ned an internet connection and able to be in a country that it is available? and how does the 30 day work? if I am subscribed, do I need to re do everything or it basically confirms that I have "cloud installed" and then just charges me?  
    - Another question that I have is more about how does the subscrition work. I subscribe from my Deskop, can I use it on my laptop? The question goes mainly because sometimes I work from home on my desktop, sometimes I use my laptop at work, sometimes on my lapotp in a different country and sometimes with someone else laptop. So am I able to go back and forth from desktop to laptop and different computers?. I think technically the question is, The subscription is for the Account Or is it for the IP address meaning that only one computer can use it.
    - Something that was told to me at work but was definetly differentfrom my understanding is the subscrition. My understanding was that I can use it for a month, pay that month, the next month unsubscribe - don't pay, and the next one pay it again and be able to use it. Somebody from work told me that they are annually and not monthly. I though you had both options, which one is true? 
    Thank you!

    Thank you for the quick reply Preran.
    You actually answered one of my questions but I think it brought a couple more.
    I thought that the 49.99 dol subscription monthly included everything in cloud and not just one of the software and the link that you sent me only talks about one  and it is a different pricing
    Subscription editions
    One-year plan*
    Month-to-month plan
    Photoshop®
    US$19.99 per month
    US$29.99 per month
    and then It talks about
    Or get it all and more with an Adobe Creative Cloud™ membership.
    and when you go there it gives me a completely different price
    Membership
    Annual plan*
    Month-to-month plan
    Adobe Creative Cloud
    US$49.99 per month
    US$74.99 per month
    And not only that when you go to the cloud page what it says is something completely different sayng that you can do the whole package for the 49.99 price.
    This is something that even though it's not a huge issue, But I watched a lot of videos for the realease of this all with Adobe spokepersons and the way it was advertised was that you can pay 49.99 for one month have it all and the next month if you don't want to use it you don't have to and come back in another month and it will be the same with the 49.99. again I love the idea, but that for me was false advertising and really got me nervous about it because I do not know what will happen in the Future with all of this.
    Everything I do usually comes from my own pocket my job pays for my some stuff but I am a contractor for them so the whole cloud Idea was brilliant I would include the 50 dollars in the pricing for that job whneI get a job from them, WIth the Info I am getting I would first have to pay more and not only that I am stuck Paying the 50 dollars for a year which comes to less than buying the softwae but still means that even If I am not working on it I would still have to pay.

  • Magnet destroyed my hard drive, I have many questions about my options.

    Ok, so I didn't realize my air condition remote was magnetic and I set it on my computer and bam my whole computer crashed. Now when I put my install dvd to boot up from, the drive makes some weird noises and then the DVD gets booted. And before you ask, its the drive needle making a sound and not the optical drive. I have a time machine backup from a few weeks ago so all my information is saved.
    So, I have insurance with state farm for accidental. If my claim goes through and apple installs the new drive, will I be able to get Lion back on my computer? I started out with snow leopard and installed lion via the app store.
    If for some reason doing the claim process will take forever or they don't accept it, as easy as this sounds can I just buy a new drive on amazon for like 50 bucks. (From what I looked at) Install the new drive myself and then bootup from the snow leopard dvd I have? Then log into the app store install lion and then hook up my external hard drive and restore my laptop back to its old self??? Or is it possible I can use a Lion time machine backup in snow leopard and when its done it'll be Lion?
    Thanks!

    Of course. If you have a Mid 2010 or newer MacBook Pro, you have OS X Recovery, that allows you to reinstall OS X Lion even if it's not installed in your hard disk. To start in Internet Recovery, hold Command, Option (Alt) and R keys while your computer is starting. In this mode you will be able to format the hard disk and install Lion.
    If you have an older computer, you will have to install Snow Leopard and upgrade to Lion. To do it, first update to OS X 10.6.8 in  > Software Update, and then, open App Store > Purchases to download Lion.

    You can do that without any problem. You can use a backup created in Lion with Snow Leopard, but it's not recommended because it's possible that Snow Leopard won't work correctly. You have to restore the backup after upgrading to Lion, or from Internet Recovery, so you won't have to install Lion

  • IPhoto 6: Just installed and have many questions!

    I have just installed iLife 06, and my life seems to be much more difficult. Am I missing something here? Hope someone can help me.
    1) When I installed iPhoto 6, I was asked to upgrade my Library so that iPhoto 6 can read it, so I did. What I noticed it did, was to replace the files that were originally sorted out by Date folders in iLife 05 to 2 main folders Originals and Modified, then sub folders by year then by Roll. I like the old way of organizing by date, because that way I am able to find my photos in the hard drive quite easily. How should I find my photos now in the hard drive? Why did Apple decide to organize the photos by Roll instead of by date?
    2) When the library is updated to Version 6, I understand that the library will not be opened in iPhoto 5 anymore. But for some logistic reasons, I need to be operating using iLife 05 in my iBook for the next 1 year. What should I do now? Do I have to re-import the jpg files into my iPhoto 5 and retag all my keywords to the photos and lose all my previous organization?
    3) There are a few photos that have lost the link to the original photos: i.e. I can see the thumbnails in iPhoto Library, but when I tried to see in edit view, it shows no photos. How can I correct that? How can I locate all photos that have broken link?
    4) There are at least 20 photos in my Library that when I try to open them in Edit view, iPhoto would crash. Why is that so? Are the photos corrupted?
    Hope someone can enlighten me. It seems that iLife 06 gives me more problem than iLife 05. Can I reinstall iLife 05 back? If yes, how?
    Susan

    Susan
    How should I find my photos now in the hard drive?
    This new system comes in with iPhoto 6, and is expected behaviour. If you wish, you can set up your own file structure and still work with iPhoto 6, but in the meantime to find your files you can
    1: Right (or Control) -Click on a pic and select 'Show File'. A new Finder window will open with the file selected.
    or
    2. Export the files to the Desktop (File -> Export)
    or
    3. Drag and Drop the pics to the desktop (or indeed any folder where you want them)
    Of course, exporting and dragging and dropping will create a copy of the pic at the destination.
    iPhoto is designed so that everything you need to do can be done via the iPhoto WIndow. It is strongly advised that you do not move, change or in anyway alter things in the iPhoto Library Folder as this can cause the application to fail and even lead to data loss
    Do I have to re-import the jpg files into my iPhoto 5 and retag all my keywords to the photos and lose all my previous organization?
    Unfortunately, yes. iPhoto 5 cannot read the v6 library.
    There are a few photos that have lost the link to the original photo
    Try rebuilding the thumbnail and Library database - hold down the apple and option key when you launch the app and the resulting dialogue box will give you the maintenance options.
    There are at least 20 photos in my Library that when I try to open them in Edit view, iPhoto would crash. Why is that so? Are the photos corrupted?
    They may be, though I don't know why. Do you have Graphic Convertor? Try export them or drag and drop them to the desktop, open them in GC and use Save As to save them as jpegs again. Then re-import them. This sometimes works.
    It seems that iLife 06 gives me more problem than iLife 05. Can I reinstall iLife 05 back?
    Yes you can. Simply drag the app to the trash, then go to HD/Library/Receipts and trash any file there with iPhoto in the title. Then re-install 5 from your original disk. However, while there may be a learning curve, in my experience 6 is superior in every way to 5, faster, more features, more stable.
    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask
    Regards

  • Acquired PB; now have many questions

    I have a great PB 40GB 800 mhz model from Ebay but the owner left all his documents, files, etc. He said he had everything that he needed from it. My questions are:
    This laptop has 10.3.9; I have install disks for Tiger. Will the installation of Tiger just wipe out all his files, etc. without me having to take extra steps?
    How, if possible, can I keep the Filemaker Pro, Photoshop and Illustrator that he left?
    Can I keep some of the music in his iTunes by just copying onto external USB drive?
    When trying to "Get Info" about the specs the button doesn't activate. Does this happen because the battery is so low and needs replaced? (I got a warning that the PB is operating on backup battery. I've already tested that the backup battery is good; the clock settings remained current)
    It's pretty dirty/dusty; Is there a cleaning process that's recommended for the display, case and inside the keyboard?
    If I'm moving with a friend that has wired PC setup, and DSL connection how do I go wireless on the Internet?
    Also, he wants to switch to a VOIP phone setup like I have. Will a modem accommodate all that?
    I'm sorry if these questions are redundant. I just figured I'd include them all at once here.

    Hi Todd,
    This laptop has 10.3.9; I have install disks for Tiger. Will the installation of Tiger just wipe out all his files, etc. without me having to take extra steps?
    Yes, if you choose Erase and Install, it will erase everything currently on the HD and install Tiger.
    How, if possible, can I keep the Filemaker Pro, Photoshop and Illustrator that he left?
    That would not be legal if he did not include the original discs.
    Can I keep some of the music in his iTunes by just copying onto external USB drive?
    Again, that would not be legal.
    When trying to "Get Info" about the specs the button doesn't activate.
    No idea what you mean.
    I got a warning that the PB is operating on backup battery.
    Are you referring to the "You are now running on reserve power, plug in your PB immediately or your PB will go to sleep?"
    It's pretty dirty/dusty; Is there a cleaning process that's recommended for the display, case and inside the keyboard?
    First step in the process is being careful, especially inside the PB. Outside, you can use a very slightly dampened soft cotton type cloth and simply wipe it down. I prefer distilled water so it doesn't leave residue. Inside the keyboard, if you must, try a Q-tip.
    If I'm moving with a friend that has wired PC setup, and DSL connection how do I go wireless on the Internet?
    Does the PB have an internal AirPort card installed?

  • Thinking about moving to X1 platform, but have many questions.

    So, for the last two months, I have been getting emails offering me a free "upgrade" to the X1 platform.  My current setup:3 Tivo DVR's - two 4 tuner and one 2 tuner  Mainly use one of the 4 tuner boxes and the 2 tunerStandard def cable box that is not connected, 105Mbit Internet, Xfinity Voice The Tivo's work real good, but are costly at nearly $60/month for their service Plus the 9.99 cable card fee each. My questions on X1 If I were to go to a single X1 DVR, and two X1 "Terminal Boxes" (That's what the local xfinity store called them), What do the terminal boxes use from the main DVR?  To clarify, If the DVR is recording 4 channels I was told it could view one other.  In a situation like that what could the Terminal boxes view at that time?  Could they only see one of the 5 channels (the four recorded ones or the live one) or could they stream something else that was recorded earlier?  Could they stream on demand content or streampix content?   The local xfinity store said I could only have 1 X1 DVR in my household, but from what I've been reading here, several people seem to have two, so was the rep at the local store wrong? Thank you in advance for any answers or recommendations.   Rick  

    The situation in regards to available tuners and recordings is changing rapidly. X1 DVRs just activated the 6th tuner and they placed a priority on recording over live TV. So at the moment you can record 6 programs as long your are watching one of the 6 recordings.
    There are two X1 Companion boxes. The Xi3 is the more desireable Companion box but it does "steal" a tuner from the X1 DVR in order to watch live TV. Please study the comparison because it will answer your questions: http://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/cable-tv/x1-hub-vs-companion-box/
    Multiple DVRs are allowed in most markets but some still don't. I have three but I had to pull strings. Please be aware that multiple X1 DVRs are not independent. They pool their resources. You cannot "hide" the recording list on one DVR from the other X1. You can prevent the actual playback but all X1 boxes in the house will see the record list on all DVRs.
    Pricing aside, most people would agree that TiVo is a vastly superior DVR to the X1 DVR. The X1 DVRs have an almost appalling lack of basic features and flexibility. They have almost no adjustments over guide views. Ability to customize favorites is extremely limited and inflexible.
    I would STRONGLY recommend that you spend more time reading in this forum. I also think that you should go to a Comcast location (or a friends house) and test X1 before you order.

  • I just stepped up from my trusty 4gig generation ipod to an 8gb ipod touch. I have many questions but the most important is how can I get my music from the old one to the new ipod since it took me over a week to download all my CDs onto my last computer

    is anyone here?

    Are these tracks that are on your old iPod still in your iTunes library? If so, just configure them to sync to your iPod Touch.
    Otherwise you'll need to copy everything from the old iPod to your PC and into iTunes first. See this older post from another forum member Zevoneer covering the different methods and software available to assist you with the task of copying content from your iPod back to your PC and into iTunes.

  • CO: Automatic creation of Settlement rule - settlement rule not saved

    Hello,
    First, We have a customer field in our internal order called 'ZWBS'.
    also, I have  customized automatic Creation of settlement rule for internal order by:
    1. T-code KSR4 - I have created Strategy called 'C25'.
    2. I created Strategy Sequences for Automatic Generation of Settlement Rule called 'ZC25'
    with T-code KSR2_ORC.
    3.I Assigned the Strategy Sequence To Order Type ZC25.
    4. I used User Exit COOM0003 in order to create Settlement rule from ZWBS field.
    In KO01, when i go into the settlement rule I can see the 2 lines that the user exit created.
    The problem is that when i'm saving the internal order the settlement rules are not saved.
    My questions are:
    1. Is anyone met this problem?
    2. is the user exit work on T-code KO02 also?
    thanks for your help.
    Best regards,
    Lior

    Hi Lior,
    Hope below information can give you some hints:
    See the detailed description of the error for example for order, in transaction KO02, click button 'Master data', click button 'Settlement Rule', populate column category with 'PSG' and press
    <enter>. On the 'Assignment to a Profitabilty Segment' screen press button 'Derivation' and see the long text of message K/111. In case the generation of settlement rules fails again later use these steps to find out why and check the derivation rule by means of transaction KECM.
    Best Regards,
    Owen

  • Planning to buy, many many questions.

    Hello,
    I am sorry if people have been asked this before but help would be greatly apprecaited. I have many questions such as:
    1)Is MSN compatable with MacBook programming?
    2)Can you run downloading programs such as Limewire on MacBooks or do you have a downloading program on there?
    3)Are there programs out there to change things over so I can use accessories that are only compatable with Windows? (my mp3 player for example)
    4)Are their any disadvantages to having a MacBook Laptop?
    5) What is the average daily battery life?
    Thanks!

    You have good instincts. Indeed these questions have been asked before. I suggest you do some forum searching for the answers.
    I also suggest you visit an Apple retailer as well.

    Is there a way to not have photo stream photos save to my iphone?  i have many shared photo streams hoping to not bog down my iphone space.  but alas the photos are are being saved on my iphone.
    For example.  When I share a photo stream with my dad and brother and mother all the photos they are putting in the shared photo stream are taking up space on my iphone!  I'll be out of space in no time at this rate.

  • Since installing Mavericks on my MacBook Pro, I have many (not all) documents that cannot be opened in either Pages '09 or Pages 5.  They show on my doc lists, but are greyed out so I can't try to change extensions or anything else.  Some are PDFs.

    Since installing Mavericks on my MacBook Pro, I have many documents, but not all, that cannot be opened in either Pages 5 or in Pages '09.  The names show in my document lists, but are greyed out.  They do not show any extensions, but I'm sure at seast some of them are PDFs.  As I cannot open them, I am unable to try to experiment with any solutions - I am not tech savvy, but can sometimes fix things by trial and error.  I have no issues with sharing documents as I have no other devices.  I just want to be able to open my saved documents!  Also, the documents I can open have to be persistently coaxed to open to a point that it is extremely aggravating.  I am not so happy with this recent "upgrade."  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    You use Finder to find stuff. It is what you use to look at where your files are kept and to rename, move or trash them. If you double click on a file in Finder it finds the right software to open it for you.
    To open particular files you use the right software for each type. Usually, but not always, the software that made the file.
    Pages opens files ending in .pages. Also .txt, .rtf, and doc.
    Pages 5 is the latest (but certainly not the greatest) version of Pages. It has trouble opening all sorts of files including the older Pages '09 files but it will still do it.
    Unfortunately Apple has chosen for Pages 5 to also save its files as exactly the same file extension .pages despite it being a different format that can not be opened by the older Pages '09.
    As we all know Apple is wise and great beyond belief and would not do something that on the face of it looks extraordinarily stupid and shortsighted. Therefore we know that it must be our fault and we are not holding the software right. Because we are bad users, we must be punished, by either having to use Pages 5 or jump through hoops to avoid using Pages 5.
    If you have installed Pages 5 any .pages file (old or new) will be opened by Pages 5. If you then save the file, Pages 5 will change the file format. So don't open your files with Pages 5 and don't save them if you do.
    To stop Pages 5 opening and resaving your old files, you need to drag it to the trash and empty it.
    When it is no longer around to annoy you, you can go back to using Pages 09.

  • HT2486 birthday are not saving in my contacts? What am I doing wrong.  I always have put in birthday before with no problems

    Birthday are not saving in some of my contacts? What am I doing wrong.  I always have put in birthday before with no problems.  Some contacts it works and others do not?  help me.

    Arnis and Jeff,
    Thank you both very much for your assistance.  I was able to figure out why the Adobe Application Manager kept failing on installing the patches.  Idiot me didn't unzip them first.  Once I unzipped the patch files, the installer worked fine.  Both patches are now successfully installed; my FM version is now 12.0.2..
    To answer some of your questions:
    Yes, I have administrator privileges on my PC.
    Yes, I had all of the files in the book opened when I generated and/or updated the LOR file.  So that was not the issue.
    With the patches installed, I opened a book and all of its files.  I updated the LOR and all works fine – it gives me all of the Imported Graphic references. So there must have been an issue with that release of FM12 (12.0.0.329), which was fixed with the patches.
    Again, thank you both for your help!
    Best regards,
    Beverly

    Sure-glad to help you. You will not lose any data by changing synching to MacBook Pro from imac. You have set up Time Machine, right? that's how you'd do your backup, so I was told, and how I do my backup on my mac.  You should be able to set a password for it. Save it.  Your stuff should be saved there. So if you want to make your MacBook Pro your primary computer,  I suppose,  back up your stuff with Time machine, turn off Time machine on the iMac, turn it on on the new MacBook Pro, select the hard drive in your Time Capsule, enter your password, and do a backup from there. It might work, and it might take a while, but it should go. As for clogging the hard drive, I can't say. Depends how much stuff you have, and the hard drive's capacity.  As for moving syncing from your iMac to your macbook pro, should be the same. Your phone uses iTunes to sync and so that data should be in the cloud. You can move your iTunes Library to your new Macbook pro
    you should be able to sync your phone on your new MacBook Pro. Don't know if you can move the older backups yet-maybe try someone else, anyways,
    This handy article from Apple explains how
    How to move your iTunes library to a new computer - Apple Support''
    don't forget to de-authorize your iMac if you don't want to play purchased stuff there
    and re-authorize your new macBook Pro
    time machine is an application, and should be found in the Applications folder. it is built in to OS X, so there is nothing else to buy. double click on it, get it going, choose the Hard drive in your Time capsule/Airport as your backup Time Machine  and go for it.  You should see a circle with an arrow on the top right hand of your screen (the Desktop), next to the bluetooth icon, and just after the wifi and eject key (looks sorta like a clock face). This will do automatic backups  of your stuff.
