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 tried using the Easy Tranfer program from a Windows XP laptop to my new laptop using Vista Professional. I used an 8 gig flash drive for the process. I tried several times would only make it to approximately 75% completion and would get an error message and start the process all over.

I finally just copied my critcal data to the flash drive the old school way and copied it to my new laptop. My concern is that it appears that these several attemps at using W.E.T. may have left a large amount of junk data on my new hard drive.

Does anybody know:
1.) If WET is unsuccessful, does it leave data on the target hard drive?
2.) If so, how can I find it? Is there a default location and series of files that I can look for and erase to free up the space on my hard drive?

I have a new Gateway DX4860. I have done the easy transfer of my old files to the new computer. The transfer file is sitting in my documents, but I am not able to access them. When I try to, it just prompts me to repeat the transfer. How do I access my transferred files?

Hi all after years of building my own tranfer 7 to system new my preparing win old for PC my PCs I decided that I would treat myself to a good 'un and I assembled preparing my old win 7 system for tranfer to my new PC my wish list earlier this year I was going switch to an ASUS Sabertooth mobo with an FX Gb DDr But when this failed to even post I swapped it back to my regular Asrock preparing my old win 7 system for tranfer to my new PC mobo supplier of choice and bought an X Extreme - which worked straight out of the box Kudos to Amazon though - no messing about and refunded straight away Anyway I digress I've done a clean install of a new copy of Win pro no attempt to badger MS into reactivating my OEM copy of win from my old machine and as I have a lot of software installed on my old machine I decided that an inventory audit was required So this tidy up is a vital operation before commissioning my new PC What has puzzled me is that Windows Easy transfer reports just over GB of data to transfer GB from my admin user account and some GB from quot shared items quot As I only have the one user account this is odd I looked at the advanced tab details which yielded the stark fact that this GB was mainly quot other items quot and I can't for the life of understand what all this garbage could be But this doesn't help me to clean up my old system because I don't know what I need to delete purge My question is therefore - how do I establish the content and it's location and equally if it's not personal user account data but windows crap how do I know whether or not it can be deleted regards Dave Hickman

A:preparing my old win 7 system for tranfer to my new PC

All you have to do is copy your personal datafiles, without the crap.
Don't use the tranfer, cause it copy's about your whole pc. (for instance useless system backup)
With outlook you just transfer the PST file.

I was recently blocked from my school's wireless network and received an email saying they had detected Torpid Malware on my computer. I was in the processes of getting a new laptop so I just ignored it. I had planned to transfer my data and give the old laptop to my mom. So here are my questions:

1. Will transferring my data between machines possible infect my new computer? (I will only be moving music, photos, ms office docs and browser bookmarks.)
2. If I use the restore disk on my old machine, could I leave some of the malware behind and get reinfected?

If either of these is possible I'll take a shot at cleaning the machine, if not I won't even bother.

Howdy Folks,

I downloaded the 90 day trial of W7 64 Bit Pro. I'd been running the RC but wanted to RTM just to be safe in case any security patches weren't backported to the RC. My question is when I get my Mitts on my own license will I be able to use the File Settings transfer Wizard thing to move everything over to my fresh install?

You can move everything but apps with the File Transfer, as I understand it.

Why not just do an upgrade install over the trial version? That will keep all your programs and settings, etc.

Okay, so I get this error every time I go to install my game. Some times it happens at 48%, 66% and even once at 99%. I just installed the game on a different computer without any problems so I know it can't be the CD. This is what the error reads, "A problem occurred when trying to transfer the file 'D:\TSBin\Sims2EP3.exe'" It's not always that specific file but it is always an .exe file.

A:Solved: Problem occurred when trying to tranfer the file...

is it happens while installing that particular game ?? or happens while copying or installing other softwares also ?

Hello Everyone Windows Issue HDD Enclosure I won t go into to much detail about the computer issue that brought me to this point but what it comes down to is the computer is not working So we are at Windows HDD Enclosure Issue a phase where I m trying to help the guy recover files off of his Hard Drive I figure I could throw the Hard Drive into a USB Enclosure and he could move files from there to his laptop The Hard Drive is Dynamic He told me somebody set up RAID for him He had no Windows HDD Enclosure Issue idea which RAID First he said it was set up for Mirroring RAID then he said it was setup for Stripping and that was it RAID So I pop the secondary HDD into the Enclosure and I find a folder with bkf files So I m assuming whoever told him he had RAID set up was very wrong The laptop sees the enclosure and says it s ready to be used but the device is not under My Computer So I go into Disk Manager and the laptop sees it as a Foreign Drive There is no option to Import Foreign Disk The only two options I have are Convert To Basic and Properties Converting to Basic would delete the data correct As I mentioned earlier the second HDD was seen no problem I m guessing because the primary Hard Drive was set to Basic I read somewhere that Windows XP Home wouldn t read Dynamic Disks so I tried it in my laptop that has Windows XP Pro and same result Any help here would be greatly appreciated Thanks everyone nbsp

A:Windows HDD Enclosure Issue

I was doing some research on Basic/Dynamic, and if I understand correctly, if you were going to implement RAID, both drives would have to be Dynamic, correct?

So if the secondary drive was Basic, you could not use RAID. Thanks for the help.

...I installed a Seagate 2tb HDD in a Max 4 enclosure from Thermaltake. I'm using an existing eSata port. Win 7 Home 64bit recognized the HDD and everything seems to work just fine.....except the drive is recognized as an internal drive. I don't have a problem with that, but the drive has to be powered up when I boot or the drive isn't located. So if I boot and then later power up the drive, it doesn't show up. So, I have connected the drive to the main power switch for my computer and its on when the computer is powered up. Is there a problem with just cutting power (from another switch) versus switching the drive on and off?

only as follows,, "CreateFile(),File:.\it41.cpp,Line:601"
I have properties listed as significant, but this is the only thing read! any thoughts appreciated.

Hi buginmyear,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Looks like I have a buginmyeyes and additionally a buginmybrains.

You copied 8GB of data to drive 1 in your enclosure from PC 1.

Now when you connect that drive 1 in your enclosure to PC 2, you see only some nonsensical file instead of that sensical 8GB of data copied.

Is that what you mean?

The SFC is stopping at one file and asking for the CD and it then tells me it is the wrong CD even though it isn't.

I thought I had fixed this by putting file I386 from the CD to my HD in C:\Windows.

I have no way of knowing which file is causing the problem - unlike SFC in Win98 where one could see exactly which files were affected. Is there any way of knowing which file is the problem?

I created a Storage pool with the following setup. Three 3TB drives with parity all in an external enclosure with eSata and USB 2/3 ports. It was connected via USB when created and had production data loaded and tested without any issues.
After a few days of use I decided to see what happened when I tried to access it via the eSata port. No luck, due to a driver on the eSata card issue with Win 8. So I powered all back down and plugged back in via USB. At this point the Storage pool went
into the state as per the screenshot below. Any suggestions to either fix the issue and/or retrieve the data that is in the volume?

Counterfeit installations such as yours contained heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I know a version of this forum has been started on here, but everything I have read, it is being said that they need to use the OS disc and run the repair and all that. But this is a Netbook with no CDROM drive. USB and SDcard drives, that's all. Is it possible to repair this without the CD? Even the onscreen message is the same message everyone gets, "You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the Original Setup CD-ROM." But no drive to do this.
It is an ASUS Netbook
OS is XP

A:Boot issue on netbook, missing or corrupted file Windows\System32\Config\System

Do you have or can borrow an external DVD drive? Then go into the BIOS and change the order so that USB is first boot option. Samsung and Lite-on do USB powered DVD RW drives made to use with netbooks, no doubt they could see a market for them with the millions of netbooks being sold ! Then you need an OS disc of the type you are using, and you can try a repair.

There is not enough storage space on either the detination disk or the temporily folder at c:\docume~1\andysc~1\locals~1\temp\CTJBNS\copy

My partner and I are working on a project, i am doing the offline edit and he is doing the online. we need to be able to share the folders, we have a nas server though it is not fast enough to edit off. he needs to be able to do some online editing while i do offline editing. i was looking into perhaps a hot swap sata drive, though this still would not solve our sharing issue.

we currently run windows xp. Any information on what we should do or about SATA drives would be very helpful. also can SATA drives have RAID backups and if the drive corrupts will this RAID still have the undamaged backup on it? My MOBO is an asus p5kpl-cm is this even hot swappable?

Hello People,
This is my first post and I hope you will not disappoint me. I have a relatively simple question.

I've a 160 GB SATA HD. I've partioned into TWO "C" AND "D". Each having 74.5gb storage capacity.

However when I check the properties my C drive it says "TOTAL SPACE 74.5gb and FREE SPACE is 64.5Gb"

Now when I double click the C drive and enter into C and select all "program files" , "windows" etc etc and right click and say properties it says the total size of all the folders is a mere 4.5GB.
So 74.5Gb minus 4.5Gb should give you 74Gb FREE..... why does it show me only 64.5Gb FREE...... where is the other 10Gb gone?
Please help.

A:Hard Disk storage issue!

Hello Person,
1. When you select all the files in your C: drive and get their properties you are really only seeing the properties for the "unhidden" files. By default Explorer ahs certain system files hidden from the user.

2. You setup C: partition to = 74.5gb and D partition to = 74.5gb leaving leaving 11gb of free space of your 160gb hard drive. You should be able to setup a third partition using the last 11gb on your hard drive.

Hope that lived up to your expectations....

Hey Andy

You mobo probably has RAID support. you can find out be going into device manager to the unknown device>right click>go to proerties>details>pull down> hardware IDS. take the hardware ID and google it. It will tell you who the mfr is and then you can get the driver.

Hope this helps

I'm looking to add some more hard drives to my computers, however, they seem to be full at the moment in terms of space (not TB, but actual space to put them). What would be the cheapest way to expand my storage? I'd also like to use it in a network configuration which streams files to my TV using the PS3 media server. I'm currently using around 10 TB worth of hard drives.

A:Expanding storage, looking for best solutions to this issue

An external raid device that support eSATA is probably your best bet.
Decent ones don't come cheap, but unlike a NAS they will be seen as part of your system and thus the media streaming shouldn't be anymore complex than it would be from a internal drive. It would also require a proper eSATA card. - Cavalry eSATA 8-bay RAID 0/0+1/ 5/JBOD Enclosure (EN-CADA8B-SD)

NAS is another option , a cheaper one.
It will always be on and connected to the network, however they are very pricey if you are looking for the kind of massive storage space you are apparently interested in. (600+ american dollars)
Smaller ones 2TB or less are actually quite affordable though.

I have finally given up so I am posting this. I have an issue in which no USB mass storage devices work on my system. I have tried my BlackBerry, IPod, multiple USB jump drives and a SATA dock. They system recognizes them but won?t install them and they show a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager. The USB ports work as I can use a webcam, scanner or mouse in the same port with no issues. I used a program called DriverMax to make sure all my drivers were up to date but that did not help. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Attached is a report from DriveMax of what drivers are installed.

A:USB Mass Storage Issue Windows 7 x64

Welcome to the Seven Forums! texusn

Most likely since the ports are known to be working something is preventing the detection process on those particular items. For the external dock and flash drives once plugged in you should be seeing a popup for running things or viewing the file content.

The two images here what to look for when in the Disk Management for either a drive when present in the docking station or when plugging in a flash drive and displayed in the DM there. The two screens attached here will show that the drive in the external enclosure is being seen as "online" otherwise a right click to find that option rather then setting it to offline would be needed as well as right clicking a second time to assign a drive letter.

This usually is all it takes at first to see any new drive or device initialized. When opening up an explorer afterwards you should be seeing the new drive icon with the drive letter selected in view. As far as DriverMax or any other 3rd party driver locator those are generally a waste of time to begin with since this is a Windows related item not a driver concern as far as detection and automatic installation to make things active. Once detected properly you would see a prompting if any drivers are needed.

Hi all, I've had an issue for some time with my Intel 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. I'm running Win10 Pro 64 and updated earlier this year from Win7 Pro 64. I use Driver Genius to scan my drivers for updates and I got a message back in May to update to Ver. dated 4/21/16, but it failed to load quoting error code 1603. I currently have Ver. from 03/0//2016.

From time to time I've retried with no success and going to the Intel site is no help as it lists a Ver. 8.5 (driver ver. from 6/03/15) which sounds like it hasn't been updated for a while.

Anyone else run into this or can suggest a solution? Thanks.

-Images refuse to cache in firefox/Showup in wrong positions.
-This persists in every browser.
-Ive tried disabling ad block extension yet failed.
-Tried running firefox in safe mode yet failed.
-Tried editing about:config yet failed.
-Even enabled java & flash on that specific webpage and it still will not show up correctly.
-It was working perfectly fine until i cleared the local storage like a moron.
Why wont the page show up correctly? Even after 2 PC Reboots and a clean firefox Reinstall?
I inspected one of the images and it says "Unknown (not cached)".

A:Virtual Memory Issue - Too Much On Storage Drive?

I suspect what is happening is that there isn't sufficient free space on the F drive to perform operations with files (especially large ones).

Windows needs free space on the drive to manipulate files - and it's generally recommended that there be at least 15% free space on each drive to ensure that this doesn't happen (9 gB free in your friend's case).

But, since this is a generalization, you may even require more free space when working with very large files (such as videos).

I've seen hard drives so full that files couldn't be deleted. This required that the owner search the hard drive and order the search results by size - then start by deleting the smallest files first and working all the way up to the bigger files - a genuine, 4 square PITA!

I've just bought a second-hand Asus 'Transformer' T100. This comes with Win8.1 and I would like to upgrade to 10. When I run the app it tells me I need more space. The tablet has 32GB in the screen (C:) and 500GB in the detachable keyboard (D:).
Obviously not all the 32GB is available but there's nothing I can remove as it's had a factory reset.
The online help I find tells me that the upgrade process should ask me to add external storage to enable the install but this is just not happening. It just keep telling me I don't have enough space. I have a USB stick I could use or (ideally) the 500GB HD in the keyboard.
Can anyone offer any help? (Bear in mind I am not very technical)

Our company stores and serves large number of documents to numerous users simultaneously but there exists an imbalance in frequent access of a document. It gets worst with increased growth of data.
We need some solution with the help of which we could serve our documents more efficiently.
Please suggest.

A:Scalable File Storage

Are you using a fileserver

We do this where I work. We have a Public folder (a shared folder with its security set to Everyone), and each user has a personal sub-folder and some departments have their own sub-folder.

Fictitious examples:\Public\bnewhouse (personal folder, everyone can access)
\Public\Contracts (restricted to people in the Contracts Dept)
\Public\Newsletters (newsletter dept, everyone can access)
Users either create/edit a document on their workstation then copy/move the file to the fileserver where anyone can access it.

Or users create/edit a document directly on the fileserver.

We also have special folders within Public that have been set to restrict access to specific people or groups, therefore only those authorized can access the folder. We use special Groups (like a "Contracts" group) and just make individual users members of that group. Then \Public\Contracts would be restricted to that group ONLY.

Hello everyone I have a small remote office that is needing a good file storage setup They ll be saving a lot of images I m trying to decide the best thing for them while trying to keep in within a certain budget Obviously the less that can be spent the better but they don t want to go with a cheap thrown together option They d like something that File storage ideas is either redundant or that will need to be backed up often I kind of figure if it s redundant like a RAID setup than a regular backup is as necessary However if it s just an external drive hanging off of a computer than backing it up often becomes a necessity Does that make sense There s the idea of using a File storage ideas RAID system like the DROBO or something cheaper a new workstation with huge internal drives shared over the network a huge external drive connected via USB and shared over the network etc We want an easy solution too not one that will require much ongoing administration An easy setup and minimal administration on anyone s part is preferred We ve spec d out a workstation idea for them and that will cost around This cost includes a couple of network drops The system has an internal GB drive and an external GB drive that would be used to back up the internal drive to What are you thoughts on a good way to accomplish this nbsp

The server must at least have a direct upload, (cgi bin) rather than sites asking for a link.
It has to hold at LEAST 20 mb
No file size upload limit

Yesterday, while investigating RAMdisks, and files in storage for temporary files I came across a couple of options on the file open call that could be used. One was "DeleteOnClose".

I can't recall the other option, but the explanation stated "the effect of this is that the file is kept only in RAM". I seem to recall that it had something to do with temporary files.

Can anyone help me locate this other option?

I've looked at every page in my browser history, but for some reason I haven't found the page...

A:Solved: HD Space Magically Disappearing -- Shadow Storage Issue?

Figured out what was eating up all my HD space. It had nothing to do with Shadow Storage or anything Vista related.

It was actually trace files from Kaspersky AV 2014 (that I installed last month). Supposedly, by default, the trace function is disabled. But it was either turned on accidentally by me or there was a bug during installation which enabled it. So I disabled the trace function, deleted the trace files and grabbed back almost 150GB of space.

Just wanted to update the issue in case anyone else was flummoxed by vanishing HD issues. If you can't figure out what's going on, it might be your AV software!

Don't bother compressing your mp3's or movie files. They wont compress much if at all.

Hey all, I've been using 8.1 for the majority of the year and it has been mostly good. One issue I am noticing now is that the File Storage feature periodically shuts off and then the button in the settings won't stay on. I am wondering if anyone else has run into this bug because it is extremely annoying. Everything is up to date and there is a relatively low amount of stuff on my machine since I used the refresh function 2 months ago. The thing I've noticed though is after turning it on, I need to immediately hit "see my files in one drive" for it to actually stay on. Any info is great.

Hi Broni,
I just built a new PC (Win7 Ultimate). Things were basically okay and then USB2 or USB3 access to any thumb drive failed (Device Manager Code 10). I did everything covered in:
And removed and replaced all my USB2 and USB3 drivers and programs. Sfc /scan now is clean, the device manager shows no problems. Microsoft FixIt USB shows a clean USB system. Event Viewer shows 2x ReadyBoost error, 3x DCOM error (related to Audio driver).
So I am wondering if my new system has a virus on it. The only thing that was suspect during my build process was when I installed MyPhoneExplorer. I did not prevent LavaSoft from getting on my system during the MyPhoneExplorer install. I immediately uninstalled it and cleaned up IE11 and Firefox 33.
What do you recommend I use to check if a virus is the cause of my problems?

A:New PC Storage System Advice

Why not just grab a 300GB VelociRaptor? It's fast enough for everything you want without burning a hole in your pocket.

But if you really want the full power of SCSI, go for a cheap controller card like this (or this if you have a PCI-X slot on your mobo) and two drives.

Is your Windows computer connecting by a wireless connection?

If so try connecting to it by a wired connection. Wireless connections can drop at any time, this might be why you are having issues how is your signal strength?

Try connecting by a wired connection, if you get the same problem let us know

I recently brought a Samsung 160GB hdd with 8 mb cache and 7200rpm. I was to replace my old 1 which was causing my games to stutter/jerky/unsmooth gameplay and is now starting to become a major pain. When firefights and explosions go off, i imagine that the hard drive is not transfering the data fast enough to the cpu or the cpu is not transfering to the GPU which causes me unsmooth gameplay. anyone know a solution? this had happend to every game i try especially in call of duty united offensive where explosions are intensive.

My system:

XFX 7600GT
160 Samsung 160gb HDD
2gb RAM
3.4 GHz pentium 4 ht
windows XP

A:New HDD Slow Tranfer

I recently found out tht setting the affinity of the cpu to cpu - or cpu 1 improves the performance and unsmoothness, but ther is still something else clogging up my system and making it stutter.

Hi there, aI am new person on this forum, got a question about a external hard drive I just installed. I have a small c drive, and bought a nice 250gig external, want to tansfer most of my files on the c drive to the e drive(new external), what I need to know before I do anything, after I transfer can I go ahead and delete the files from the c drive.

Usually I do not have a dumb question, but I am doing a blank on this one. Any help would be welcome. Never used a external hard before.

Thanks Bob

A:Can I delete after tranfer

Once you have copied all your files over to the external drive
Go to My Computer and open the external Hard Drive and confirm all files are actually OK.

Depending on how critical your files are (for backing up) you may wish to have two backup sources ( one on external drive, one on C drive)
But normally, once confirmed OK, just delete all the non-needed files on your C drive

I'm novice

I've Windows 98 and I backuped up my HD. I would install windows xp. I've norton Ghost software. Can I get them back to the regular hd on window xp? Does windows 98 goes to my regulard HD too or only the program and Does the document folder goes to my regular HD too

A:Tranfer my hd to windos xp?

If you have Windows XP upgrade you can go ahead and just install it. It will save your 98 programs and settings.

Since the XP disk is self booting, all you need to do is put it in the drive and when it opens, follow the instructions.

Is there a way to transfer files between two computers through a USB connection?

My dilemma- computer here, and then computer here
So, if Comp 1---------------is connected like this----to----Comp 2

I'll be able to move stuff between computers, right?

Otherwise, I'll have to set up a network, but I'd rather not do that.

Pardon my horrible ASCII art.

After the large recent update to Windows 10, my HP Pavilion dv7 laptop no longer will open USB storage devices like SD cards or USB harddrives.

The device is recognized and appears in the file browser, but when I try to open it, it is forever in the task of opening, the green bar at the top never quite reaching the end.

This is true of every USB storage device I have tried.

Can anyone tell me where to find the file (or folder) that routinely stores the Outlook Express inbox email (Win XP Professional). I had a number of emails sitting in my inbox 2 days ago. When I went to check my email today, they were gone and replaced with a few very old emails that I had previously deleted. I have Acronis 2010 backup, and I do have a complete backup on a daily basis, but after restoring the entire Outlook Express folder from several days prior, I still get the same thing. Does Windows store the inbox someplace else? Thank you.

A:Outlook Express Inbox file storage

Outlook Express e-mail folders have a .dbx extension (for example, "Sent Items.dbx"). Path to Store Folder in Windows Explorer, containing .dbx files:C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{8xxxxxxB-Dxx8-4xx3-Axx5-Fxxxxxxxxxx9}\Microsoft\Outlook ExpressRecuva file recovery (including from the Recycle Bin)[To see file extensions e.g. .dbx files, in Windows Explorer go to tools>> folder options>> view tab>> uncheck "hide extensions for known file types" and apply][To see hidden files in Windows Explorer go to tools>>folder options>>view tab>>click on "show hidden files and folders" and apply]
