I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a nailed up VPN between 2 sites the remote site is connected to the main and is joined to the domain.

I have set the workstation up so that when the user logs on and off the my documents synchronises back to the Main site. since there are more and more documents in this folder its becoming very slow. when the user clicks on my documents its taking around 15 seconds to open, i have checked all the dns and ip settings and its as it was originally when it was quick, is there a way to make the folder offline without terminating the VPN link so that they can work on it and then when they log off, it syncs back to the server.

Hey people.

Im after trying to sync a folder from my laptop to a network share on a windows 2003 file server. Not exactly sure how to go about doing it. I would like files to sync both ways so any changes i make to the folder on my laptop get applied to the share on my file server and any changes to the share on the file server are applied to the file on my laptop.

I had a look at sync centre which i believe is 7's version of offline files. I made a test share on my file server and set it to "Always Available Offline"

Now where do i go from here? Is it just a case of setting the foder on my laptop to point towards the network share?

Any help would be great

Well this isn't exactly automatically sync but...

You can use robocopy

I uploaded the .exe here

2shared - download robocopy.exe

Just make the following .bat file

@echo off

robocopy "C:\users\tom\desktop" "F:\desktop" /mir /s

echo Backup Complete


In case you're wondering the destination folders don't create themselves.. < yes, i've had people who told me the script was not working but only because they did not create the destination folder>

It will only take long the first time you copy the files then you can just update the network drive automatically by running the bat file.

Guess if you want you can set it to run at shutdown / startup that way, nothing to worry about.

It's not THE solution. But it could work

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

I've been using "briefcase" to sync data folders. It works well for folders up to several hundred MB's.

My problem is now I'm dealing with folders that contain 10-30GB's. Briefcase begins to scan for differences and quickly shuts down.

Any ideas on a sync program that can handle folders this size?

BTW, I don't know if it makes a difference but the main disk with data folders is basic while the slave drive to be synced is dynamic.

Up until now, I've synced my music folders between my stationary computer and laptop through dropbox (I have over 60GB space). But I feel that there must be a better way to do it, without syncing through the internet.
Basically what I want is to have the music files saved locally on both computers, but any change in one folder will be synced to the other, is it possible to do this in Windows 7 without any 3rd party apps?
I did try setting up a Homegroup, but I'm not sure that my computers are connected. My stationary computer doesn't read wi-fi, but is connected to a router which is connected to a wi-fi-router which my laptop is connected to, so technically they should be connected? I'm a big noob when it comes to networks, so I'm turning to you guys for help now!

Good evening all: I have a video folder that is quite large and I don't want to lose the files in it. I copied the folder to a separate drive but the drive is small(160GB) and will not allow me to copy the folder twice to it. I add more files to the original folder and when I go to coy/backup I end up having to delete the folder on the separate drive so the original folder with new files will fit. My question is: Is there a way of 'Syncing' the folders so only the new files are copied? Or should I use Windows Backup just for this folder? Thank you in advance.

A:Sync/Copy huge folder

Since video files(video captures mainly) tend to chew up drive space fast I made sure I had large storage as well as large OS drives when first putting the present case together. It won't take long to fill up a small drive when you keep adding new files however.

Even with the 1tb dirves in use here the oldest files are deleted to make room for the new after so long to avoid crowding. For keeping a growing number of files for lengthy periods of time if all are the same type you would still use one main folder possibly with a few sub folders to keep the new and old separated rather then having two root folders for the same.

To keep the oldest indefinitely then you have to start looking at increasing the overall storage capacity of the secondary storage drives internal or external in order to still be able to add new files as you go along. At some point however the files will still be more then the total storage capacity where some will simply have to go or be burned to removable media in dvd form.

What periodic scheduled backups will do is simply add the new with the old files as you go along by overwriting the existing files in the same folder with the same plus add the new in at the same time. Simply copying each new file over to the folder on the other drive will see that done.

Once all the latest files are backed up there you simply start nuking the older files from the C drive to avoid running out of space fast and seeing things like the "out of memory" error when there's not enough room for the paging file to be created. But 160gb is "tiny" when considering what you are trying to back up! Even a 500gb drive can fill rather quickly.

Our users "my documents" folders are set up for redirection to \\ourserver\users

We have an XP based machine ( machine X ) that was used by person A, each time they logged off it synchronized as expected.

However machine X is now used by another user B.

Whenever user B logs off user A's offline files still keep synchronising, have deleted all the files from the offline folder I still cannot see a way of stopping user A's files and starting the new user B's files sync.

User A's files were accounting type files and are sensitive files that should not be viewed by others, however by still sync to the offline files folder they can be easily viewed.

Any thoughts as how I can stop this and re-direct the new users files to sync as I need to release this pc for general use.


A:Offline files / folder sync

You need to unmark the old users' folders for offline use, apply, reboot and make sure that the machine can see the domain and be made happy on that front, log in as the new user and then mark those new folders for offline use.

I would agree that having a cloud storage would be nice should the office server go down. You do know that you don't have to sync the entire share folder and programs right? You can sync just individual files that are actually being used and changed. As far as extra storage goes, no need to tote around an external HD. Why not get a couple USB 3.0 flash drives or sdcards? And I really do mean get 2-3, just in case one should fail you have some kind of a backup. You can never rely on a single backup.

Hi everyone,

If installed on PC, Google Drive syncs the contents of the Google Drive folder to the cloud automatically.

I want a continuous backup to specific folders on my PC, say "Uni Stuff" and "Music" (different locations).

That requires GDrive to perceive the two folders as the original GDrive folder. I'm guessing it's possible.
The reason I don't want to just copy the stuff I want to backup, into the GDrive folder, is because it creates an actual copy on my physical HDD. That takes up lots of space.
Is there a way to do it?

I need some freeware synchronisation software that I can put on my USB stick to automatically overwrite old files with their newer equivalents, to use on both my home and school PC (hence why I can only put it on my USB)

I don't like to ask, but I'm really not finding anything of any use at the moment and it would save me a lot of time that I currently waste archiving and backing up instead of working!

Since user has been migrated to Vista Enterprise, offline files have not been functioning correctly. It appears to ONLY be that way for newly created files and folders. Sync log indicates that "the files are in use by another system."

All other users syncing to the same server are fine.

I've disabled Indexing, but that did not take care of it.
I've also googled the heck out of this. Nothing worked.

If I go to the actual server location and sync from there, it works without issue, but not the other way. There's a similar error for every created file or folder.

I recently moved to a 2TB striped raid setup, replacing a setup where i had several independent disks, many with backups of my important files. Now everything is on the raid setup and i fear that if it fails i'd lose everything, much of which goes back up to a decade.

What I'd like to do is have my 'My Documents' folder mirrored onto an external drive. In the past I'd copy stuff manually, but I have 150+Gb of stuff in there and it's time consuming having to routinely overwrite everything each time i backup, especially since very little may have changed or been added since i last did it.

If I had some sort of mirror or sync set up then it would just replace or update changes I have made to my files.

How would I go about this?

A:How do I set up a sync between my documents folder and a spare drive?

SyncBack gets mentioned often here.

Myself, I just use a batch file and robocopy, then run it as a scheduled task each day.
Set _Src=%Userprofile%\Documents
Set _Dest=G:\Backups\DeLorean\Documents
Robocopy "%_Src%" "%_Dest%" /R:2 /W:5 /SEC /E /XO %*

/R Number of retry attempts
/W Time to wait between retries
/SEC Copy with security, copies Data, Attributes, Timesatamp, and Security info (ACL List)
/E Include subfolders
/XO Exclude older files
%* This lets you add switches from the command line.
Handy to specify /L to just list files and not actually copy.

Save as backup.bat for example.
Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder you saved backup.bat in, and type:
backup.bat - will copy files
backup.bat /L - will just list but not copy

Once a week add /purge ( or create a 2nd task) to delete files from the backup that no longer exist on the PC.

What do I have to do to make this happen?

A:Duplicate/sync friend's Dropbox folder

It's easy - just have her log into, right-click on the folder you want synced between the two of you, and click "Invite to folder". Make sure she uses the email address that your Dropbox account uses.

Hey all,

So my outlook has been working fine until lately. Here is the problem, if I receive an email while outlook is open it won't show up in my inbox. Even if I do a manual send/receive command it won't appear. In fact it doesn't say "Syncing inbox" at the bottom. I can get it to sync if I change folders, or if I open and close outlook. I have tried changing multiple settings in Send/Receive Groups and general settings and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas?

With no way of knowing what you actually tried, in what order, and if all is back to where it was, all I can really suggest is that you remove the account info from Outlook, and create a new account. Working or not, at that point, please let us know.

Hi sysvatar and welcome to the Forum.
I have never used a roaming profile o may not be much help but your post was getting a little near to the bottom of th epage and then might get a bit lost!
Forgive me for being naive but are you sure you have the actual folders on the desktop and not just a link to them on the C drive? have you tried renaming the one with the lost contents to it's old name? If they are the actual folders did they get moved or just copied, have you checked to see if they are still on the C drive? If the contents have got deleted you would have surely got a message "Do you want to delete etc". Have you checked the recycle bit?

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully someone can help me. I want to move the OneDrive folder from the default C:\Users\UserName\OneDrive to D:\Users\UserName\OneDrive.

I go to properties, location & click on move & navigate to the new location. A few seconds later, it shows it copying files.

The problem is after I let it re-sync, check for changes, etc, the OneDrive folder in Explorer shows no files.

If I tell it to set it back to the default location (C drive), the files appears again.

Is there a fix to this?

Thanks in Advance

Hi all,

I am using mail app on windows 8.1. It was working fine in the morning. But few hours ago I noticed that it shows my drafts folder empty and the interface has also changed a bit.

I did not update anything at all. My automatic update setting is off. I have synced it a lot of times. It shows my emails from all other folders but not from drafts. And it is not like it can't do it. Until yesterday, I was being able to view the drafts seamlessly. It just happened now.

Could you please help me resolve this issue?

Well I just realized that about half of my life is stored on my hard-drive. I'm backing up with an external HD but being the paranoid I am, if the house is burnt down.. the backup doesn't help much.

I've a Windows 7 contacts folder located here: C:\Users\Richard\Contacts
But it is not the same as my Live Mail address book.

My Live Mail Address book has new contacts in it.

1) How do I update the Windows 7 contacts folder?

2) And what is the point of the Windows 7 contacts folder if it doesn't stay in sync with the Live Mail address book?

Regards Richard

A:Windows 7 Contacts Folder and Live Mail Address Book Not in Sync?

The Contacts folder is left over from Window Vista and if you were to go to the trouble of "reinstating" Windows Mail (the previous mail version that came only with Vista) then it would use the Contacts folder. If you have downloaded and installed WLM (a component of Windows Live Essentials) it has its own contacts database within the <user>/appdata folder tree. You can access this database only through the WLM program (and the website if you sign-in since that site mirrors your "signed-in" contacts list). If you don't sign-in then you are viewing your "not-signed-in" contacts list in WLM which is also located in the appdata folder tree. If you have placed any contacts in the old Username/Contacts folder, you can import them into WLM.

i have a system running on Windows XP Pro SP2. it contains two partitions, in which DRIVE C (primary partition) is the system partition. on the other partition (for datas and documents) i created one folder (name "New Folder") in which access and permission was only granted to Administrator (default Administrative account for Windosws).

due to the fact that some of my commonly used programs are not functioning properly, so i decided to reformat it. but what i missed is that i forgot to change the access and permission of the confidential folder (New Folder) that i've created. my problem now is that when i try to access that folder with the newly reformatted system, i got an "access denied" message. i also try to log-in the Administrator account of Windows, but i've got the same error..

so, i hope to receive a solution for this matter...thanks...

You will only be able to access that folder via two methods.

Recover the user and then login and move it or change permissions. I assume this option is not valid any longer.

The other is to attempt data recovery on the disk. Not cheap.

So, I'm an IT manager with administrative privileges in a domain. On one of our servers there's an IT folder that only those with said privileges can enter. This is all well and good.

My question is: is there a way to use my credentials on another computer whose user is already in said domain?

To use an example, I recently restored a computer who had a Windows authentication issue (somehow the admin before me turned off restore - was fun). Once I re-set up his domain name it wouldn't allow him to get into the IT folder (which made sense - this is what we want). Problem was, I found no easy way to then enter my credentials so I could sneak in, grab the install I want, then sneak out (preferably with Windows not remembering / automatically administering my credentials each time).

I've found the drive mapping bit, is there anything easier I'm missing?

Thanks ahead of time.

A:problem opening a folder

did you mean opening a file? a folder doesn't need a specific program to open, a file is the one that needs different programs to open. if it is a file, then you need to find the correct program that will open that type of file. you know this by checking the extension of the file, something after the .???, eg. .mp4 for video file, .txt for text file. after noting the extension, you can search the web for the associated program to open it and make the program the default one used to open that file. then windows will know what program to be used directly without asking again.

A:Opening a folder problem

"Explore" is open. When you want to see the contents of a file using WIndows Explorer you explore it. Ok say you have a CD in the drive if you click "open" it will start what ever the cd is supposed to do, but if you click "explore" then you can see the contents of the CD. Make since or did I confuse you more??? I do that sometimes...

Having had *problems with computer I ran, System Mechanic 6 Pro on a "Totalcare". (This may have nothing to do with the problem)

* The main problem was for no apparent reason, shutting the machine down or doing a "Re-Start" resulted in a total hang up , which required holding the "ON" button until it shutdown.
System restore ceased to allow restore on checkpoint dating 2 months )

I then had an additional problem, in that every time I know click on a desktop folder, the Windows Installer pop up appears...eventually the folder opens.

Likewise, if I use the START menu > Settings > Control Panel.
Same thing happens.

Question: What can I do to revert to "normal" click and open?

Any help appreciated.

Dear Sir or Madam,

When trying to play a video file, and after just opening the related folder, I receive a Windows' error untitled
Data Execution Prevention - Microsoft Windows
containing the following message:

To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program

Name: Windows Explorer
Publisher: Microsoft Corporation

So can I get any solution to resolve this problem please,


A:Opening Video Folder

As Vladimirb said in your other thread this could be malware related.

Follow these instructions :

Where did you get the video file from ? What video is it ? Could be an executable file disguised as a video (a .avi.exe file for instance). In windows explorer go to tools => folder options => view and untick "hide extensions for known file types".

Information from microsoft :
You receive a "Data Execution Prevention" error message in Windows XP SP2

A:XP slowing down when opening folder

Ok, i'm not sure it's an issure of malware here, i think this is happening due to the videos.

When you open a folder with AVI files in it, windows loads them all for some reason or rather even if you don't open them, and this is probably what's taking so long. perhaps if you break the folder down into subfolders, this will aid the speed.

there is a way to tweak and stop windows doing this. perhaps somebody can help with this

#1) Double clicking on folders within My Documents or shortcuts on my Desktop will launch the Windows Search window instead of opening the folder. Have run Hijackthis, Avast antivirus & Spybot to no avail.

#2) Spybot recognized NetFxUpdate_v1.1.4322 as a "Value changed" - do you recommend "allow change" or "deny change". Is NetFxUpdate_v1.1.4322 critical?

Thank you.

It is part of the Microsoft .Net Framework. I would allow it. using the System Restore, pick a date prior to the trouble.Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore, you may get the message telling you that you will have to restart your computer to start, click ok. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Hello, I installed Windows 7 a few months ago and I haven't had any problem since 2 days ago. Each time I boot up windows, the folder C:\Windows\SysWOW64 keeps opening up. If I close it, it opens up again. I tried unpining, unchecking start-up programs in msconfig.exe, but it still opens up. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks, Patrick

A:Syswow64 folder keeps opening up

@Noel Patrick's issue is the folder C:\Windows\SysWOW64 keeps opening up, not only occurs after boot. I am afraid we need to monitor this folder access history. @Patrick As I mentioned above, I suggest you enable Audit on your computer. To do it: 1. Click Start, enter GPedit.msc in the Start Search box. 2. Open the following branch.
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Audit Security
3. Enable the following policy:
Audit object access
4. Open Windows Explorer, open the folder  C:\Windows. 5. Right click the folder SysWOW64, choose Properties->Security. Click the Advanced button.6. Click the Auditing tab. Click Continue. 7. Click Add. Then click Advanced. 8. Click the button Find Now. 9. Wait for the process finishes. Then from the users list add the following users.
BATCHCREATOR OWNEREveryone GuestsLOCAL SERVICENETWORKNETWORK SERVICESERVICESYSTEM10. After selecting each user, choose Full Control. If you would like to check which application was trying to open this folder, please open Event Viewer, check the Windows Logs\Security Log for detail information.Hope it helps.

I am a noob here, was wondering if anyone has come across this proplem before:-
When I go to open any file eg. document, picture or audio from a folder it takes between 5 and 10 seconds to open, however if I open them from the application direct it is instant, I have discovered that when I disable my LAN connections the problem stops, but I need them both running for my network and internet connection, I have been running hassle free for some years like this, the problem only started about a week ago, don't recall installing any software or hardware, if anyone knows about this or has any suggestions that may help me solve it I would greatly appreciate it?

Many Thanks


A:All files slow in opening from any folder

Try opening My Documents or My Computer (it doesn't matter). At the top, click Tools, and then Folder Options. Click the View tab and uncheck where it says "Automatically search for network folders and printers".

If that doesn't work, then you might want to try and scan your system for viruses and spyware.
