RAM capping while downloading large files

Q: RAM capping while downloading large files

Hi fellow techspotters,

odd thing has happened to my friend, whos pc I have handbuilt. Every time he starts downloading lets say 1gb or bigger file his RAM starts to fill up. No processes are visible to be the cause. Cpu usage stays on normal level, but the ram just keeps on filling. Until it is throttled by capping on 8gb and he is forced to pause the download and reboot the machine, and the RAM is cleaned.

I posted this under networking, because I doubt that it is a hardware related problem.
The numbers go some like this. 8gb of RAM = 20gb of download -> cap -> restart -> ram clear -> restore download. And the RAM gets used oddly like its ment to behave like this. Does it store something on the way?

It isnt actually a problem, my friend can cope with it. But I as a builder of the PC would really like to solve this. I have never encountered such memory behavior with downloads before.

Screencaps of the situation available when I get home from work.

cheers

Preferred Solution: RAM capping while downloading large files

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: RAM capping while downloading large files

Does the machine have an anti-virus installed? And if so, does memory usage have the same effect with or without active scanning?

When monitoring Task Manager, which process is using the memory allotment that appears to be accumulating? Killing the process should clear memory usage by that process.

Forgive me as I beat around the bush, not really knowing what to say.

Yo,

Right now I'm trying to download a service pack for someone but its not working! It gets up to a certain amount and then kind of freezes, the transfer rate is still there, everything looks ok but theres no activity.
I have an adsl connection with bulldog and im just trying to download the default xp way(no getright or download managers). when the download freezes I can still get web pages to work and, checking in the router, the connection hasn't been dropped.

Anyone help?
 

A:Probs downloading large files...

Try using one of those download managers. They will enable you to resume the download to finish it. They also allow for multiple threads to a server to get the max connection speed out of your connection.

A:Slow Downloading Of Large Files

Well if your dial-up is 56k, then your average transfer rate should be at around 4-6 Kbps on average. There arent really any ways to optimise your internet speed though, you probably will have to get better internet when it is availible otherwise there isnt much that you can do. Also, dont download any programs that say they optimise internet speed, because, they are Spyware and do either nothing or slow down your internet even more. Also, I would say that downlaoding that much with dial-up could take a couple of days. Hope you get broadband in your area soon!

A:Trouble downloading large files with Windows XP PRO SP3

Easiest solution is to download the file on to a computer off site using a different service provider. Put the file on a USB stick and take it to the client.

I think the client needs to contact Charter about the difficulty downloading items from the internet.
1. Does Charter still support XP? That might be part of the problem.
2. Is there a limit on data downloaded? Comcast has caps in some areas. I'm not sure what happens when you approach or go over the limit because I am no where near any data allowance cap.

Hi, all. Wondering if anyone can help with this. When downloading large files, either via uTorrent, Steam, or other services, at random times my computer will freeze, requiring a hard restart. No BSOD or anything, just a freeze. It doesn't happen every single time I download large files, but it does happen often enough. I suspect that it may be a problem with the wireless network card, but I'm not exactly sure, and wanted to get some insight before I replaced anything. It's been happening since I built the machine, but I narrowed it down to downloading large files just recently. I ran the diagnostic tool, and I am attaching the zip, though there is no minidump, of course. Thank you in advance.

Quote:
The kernel attempted to access pageable memory (or perhaps completely invalid memory) when the IRQL was too high. The ultimate cause of this problem is almost certainly a driver that has corrupted the system pool.


If you get no help from that try enabling Driver Verifier,



   Information
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:

Hello,
For a while now, I've been having a recurring BSOD giving the message "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I believe it may be related to something to do with my network settings/drivers, as more recently, I noticed that it occured when I attempted to download game updates that were around 1.5GB in size. I have tried reinstalling networks drivers, but it does not appear to have worked. Any help would be appreciated
Thank you.

A:BSOD during downloading of large files, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

You are right, it is some network issue. But apparently no reason behind such a network crash is not visible in any dumps, which is a sound ground.

If you have any network bandwith monitoring/controlling program, uninstall it as a test. Uninstall peerblock too. Letus see if it causes any difference.

I ve recently switched from Verizon Mbps to Time Warner Mbps both were wireless and installed a new router that I bought off the tech guy while he was there After setting up the router with Warner and hooking it up I noticed a strange problem with this new internet connection Whenever I d download a large file say larger than a few MB my internet would lock up and crash - forcing me to disconnect from and then reconnect to the wireless signal to resolve the problem This happens either during large file downloads or heavy traffic moments such as loading multiple webpages at once So whenever my internet connection dies on me a quick windows diagnostic says that the DNS cannot be contacted because there is no ethernet connection What s more though is that large cuts whenever Internet downloading files out this apparently only happens with my wireless connection because the downstairs computer which is hooked up to the router with an ethernet cable never experiences this problem This has me genuinely confused here Is my computer simply forgetting for a split second that it uses wireless and just defaults to looking for a LAN connection Or is this a problem with the router or Internet cuts out whenever downloading large files the service provider itself - Time Warner - since I never had this problem with Verizon nbsp

A:Internet cuts out whenever downloading large files

from Verizon 2 Mbps to Time Warner 15 Mbps (both were wireless)Click to expand...

Please educate me on this. Verizon has both DSL and mobile wireless, and 2 Mbps sounds reasonable for either. But I thought that Time Warner was only (coax) cable? And 15 Mbps download sounds to me like a cable service, not mobile wireless and not fixed wireless.

What networking equipment (brand and model) do you have? You mentioned a "modem" and a "router." Anything else?

Did a clean install of Win 8.1 Pro x64 on a desktop i7-2660K machine a week ago. Since then, there's been a problem that didn't exist before the clean install, namely web page loading is very slow while downloading large files, a few hundred mb to a few gb. Pause the downloads and pages load normally. Before the install, the page file was set to system managed size. System drive is fast Plextor SSD and RAM is 16gb. I've now tried 32gb max and still slowness. Not sure where to turn on this. This is a relatively fast cable system (Charter), with line to the computer through an Linksys E1200 router (for wireless laptop). Any ideas? One thing I hadn't done yet is reinstall the router on the desktop, but I just did that and it makes no difference. Is that necessary? Thanks,

A:Slow web when downloading large files after clean install

I'm interested in any responses to this as well, because in my opinion Microsoft screwed it up.

I'm not sure when they changed it, but I noticed they changed this quite a while back. The change they made seems to give full bandwidth to the first thing you start downloading, but as you've discovered it's a nightmare like this because it means you can't do anything internet related until the download has finished. In the case of a large download, that's frustratingly limiting.

How it was before, Windows seemed to balance the load so you could have something downloading in the background, but still carry on with other things on the internet. How it is now, the second thing you try to access on the internet will usually result in a timed out error and if doesn't it's so incredibly slow that it's unusable.

It's not just with file downloads either, if you've got a heavy loading webpage, you can't just leave it loading that page and go view another webpage, because the first webpage sucks all the bandwidth to itself . Also, if you click a link on a heavy loading webpage, it won't do anything due to the webpage sucking all the bandwidth. So you either have to wait for the whole page to load first, or you have to open the link in a new tab, then close the heavy loading webpage tab.

I don't know what they were thinking to be honest because it's pretty bad as it is now. Maybe on a super-fast Microsoft LAN they don't notice how bad it is, but in the real world the changes they made are terrible.

Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

Dear all,

The application I'm working on uses the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control 6.0 (Inet) with the GetChunk method in VB6 to download updated components from our server. This has worked fine on hundreds of installs with XP and more recently on Vista.

However, on one user's Windows Vista system, the application returns a runtime error 7 "Out of memory" when downloading files larger than, say, 6 MB.

Installing Vista hotfixes has had no effects; disabling installed antivirus software (Norton) had no effect.

Does this problem sound familiar to anyone? Your thoughts on this subject are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hello, My computer started freezing while downloading large files in uTorrent, About 10 minutes after starting uTorrent the PC starts to be really really slow and 1 minute after it freezes, only restarted/shutdown solve the problem, I've been using uTorrent for years and never had this problem, I mean it happens when I download a 15GB movie, but two months ago I downloaded a 170GB TV series and no problems were with that.

So I thought maybe its a problem in the HDD (not in the space, I have aprox. 150GB free in C and 220GB in D), I don't really know what to do, hope that you will help me

Thank you.

What happens when you attempt a large direct download from a non-uTorrent site? Try one of these 3GB+ ISOs for a test:

If any of the above work OK, then it is clearly a uTorrent issue.

A:Internet dies for a few minutes when downloading large files quickly

My bet goes to router

Is your modem and router separate devices? Would your connection work if you plug the modem to computer directly?

I guess some routers have a passthrough configuration, if above is not feasible.

If all above fail try factory reset on the router. Make sure you have all the configuration details noted down, you will need them after the reset.

I recently purchased Visual Studio 6.0 and want to download a 132MB file with samples of the several venues comprising the Studio. Yesterday, I spent 15 hours at my machine trying to download this large file (56k Modem) and at 131+MB, my connection to my ISP broke and I lost it! I have tried several times before and after this crushing loss and have had similar problems.

Is there any software or other means to "restart" when a downloading process has been broken off and continue the download? That seems possible, say, when downloading Microsoft service packs and upgrades . . . but can I do it too?

Thank you!

A:Possible virus downloading large amounts of data in background

Well eventually after looking at the IPs that it was connecting to using Wireshark. One of the IPs was 31.128.104.126. Searching that resulted in a page suggesting it was associated with the TR/Gamarue.A.99 virus. Searching that indicated that Avira actually would have some success finding and removing it.
 
Despite the fact that no other antivirus scans found any of these things avira found the following.
 
TR/Gamarue.A.99
e2h[1].htm - html/iframe.arx2
cpc[1].htm - js/iframe.el.2
vsvusgvu.exe - tr/kuluoz.a.87
costcoform_overland_park.exe - tr/kuluoz.a.87 trojan
 
As well as a bootrecord virus boo/cidox.b.
Avira was able to remove all the other viruses and I was able to find instructions on this site to use Kaspersky's TDSSKiller to remove the boot record virus and was successful there. After that everthing was mostly better except IE was having problems loading some pages. A quick restore/repair of IE's default settings seems to have fixed that. I'll be keeping my eye on the computer for a while to make sure there's no weird memory or GPU utilization, and I'll never know what sort of stuff that virus was up to in the background using up to 4gb of RAM with explorer.exe but at least it seems to be gone.

Hi guys,

I have a amd 64 3000+ with a x1900GT with 1gig ram. My CS:Source running at 1280x1024 with almost everything on high would run around 30-35 FPS average, often dipping down below 20. I've seen benchmarks with similiar hardware that run a minimum of 70-80 fps. Since if I turn off AA and AF, I get around the same FPS, I was wondering if it's my CPU thats capping the potential of the video card.

Thanks in advance.

Hi & Welcome to TS!

That AMD CPU is great, but might be bottlenecking a bit the X1900GT. Why don't you try to overclock a bit that 3000+? I managed to overclock my 3200+ to 3800+ speeds, and it gave a nice FPS boost.

I can't find a driver that works for the monitor online, so I made one with RivaTuner, however I can't reach 100hz in resolutions that I know are supposed to get there.

Is this a Nvidia driver issue?

Your monitor works best at 1920x1440 @ 64 Hz, it's maximum resolution/refresh rate.

Hello World,

I was wondering if someone could tell me if there was a way to cap memory usage for specific tasks on an indefinate basis. I'm an x mac user who got very used to setting maximum memory usage in the preferences of any program file.

The first thing you are going to tell me to do is go into task manager and change priorities. That's not what I mean. In my experience, priorities are not what their cracked up to be, and tend to do more harm than good.

Lets say I want Program X to never reach beyond 50mb in memory. Is there a way to do this in windows, or possibly a program to do so? I've looked everywhere I am aware of, but I am not the best when it comes to searching around, and tend to fix things without help......this is my eighth computer.....

I prefer to download all mail and then respond, file, delete, etc. About a month ago it seemed to "timeout" on me when trying to download Emails with large attachments (pictures, PDF files, etc). I can access thos Emails through Webmail and file them so they don't continue to try and download, but now I've go a good number of these "stuck" in my webmail.

What could have changed that has now prevented me from downloading these Emails through Windows Mail and how can I fix it? Thnaks for any and all info/advice.

Welcome
If you increase the timeout, you should be able to correct the problem
1. Open Windows Live Mail, go to Tools > Accounts...
2. Choose your email account and then click on "Properties"
3. Click on the "Advance" tab
4. Under 'Server Timeouts', drag the slider to change it to a more longer or maximum period of timeouts.

Probably caused by extremely large attachments, or internet slowing down. There are various sites to check the speed.

How do I unzip a 214 MB cab file with FilZip? Whenever I try to extract it to either the same folder as all the other files from that particular application, or into a new folder or anywhere including the desktop, FilZip stops responding. Would that even be because the file is too big, or do I need to reinstall Filzip or find another Unzip app ?
 

A:Unzipping large files

It seems that FilZip once had problems handling large files (though the size was more like >1.5 Gb). I would try WinZip, or if you're using WinXP, then its own native compressed files handler. Given the size of the file, try not to do anything else on your PC while it unzips and it will take a while to do. Try leaving it for a while (10 minutes) if it shows up as Not Responding. Sometimes it resolves itself.

I have tried copying it to my Master hard drive, slave hard drive and External USB drive, all with the same result.

A:CRC errors with large files...

That sounds like a corrupted MFT. Have a look at this: (check the web - there are more tools)

The MFT (Master File Table) is sometimes corrupted. If Microsoft's Checkdisk (chkdsk) failed to repair the MFT, run TestDisk. In the Advanced menu, select your NTFS partition, choose Boot, then Repair MFT. TestDisk will compare the MFT and MFT mirror (its backup). If the MFT is damaged, it will try to repair the MFT using the backup. If the MFT backup is damaged, it will use the main MFT.
If both MFT and MFTMirr are damaged and thus cannot be repaired using TestDisk, you might want to try commercial software like Zero Assumption Recovery, GetDataBack for NTFS.

it seems something is clogging up over 20gb of my hardrive and i'd like to find out what it is, unfortunately i have no idea where to begin with, so i'd like a tool that shows me the biggest file on my system so i can delete it.

my hardrive is 80gb, and windows reported 76gb usable, i dont have any large program install at all, the only thing i have is my own folder holding every single one of my files, in total it weights 50gb, and besides this folder, i have absolutely nothing else install on my pc, so i figure something is clogging up my 26gb, and i'd like to destroy it as soon as possible.

Greetings,

I need to stream large files between two computers (htpc & other is just for storing large files) that are separated by a wall. Both are connected to powerline network adapters and a third computer has a powerline adapter hooked up to a wireless router, all are connected via windows 7 network (all are running windows 7.

Since both network plugs are used I was thinking about using a usb network cable to stream bluray movies from the one that is stored to the other. Wireless/powerline still cause stuttering, doesn't seem to be a fast enough connection.

Is this a good idea? Is there a better solution?

Thanks, marrjam

A:How to stream large files

1. Powerline devices are not fast enough to stream.
2. Unless you use Wireless "n" it will not be fast enough to stream. I have tried 54mb wireless...it does not work well.

Direct wire at 1GB is perfect works very very well. 100mb connections work well, but hi-end BluRay, you will need more bandwidth.

Hope that helps. -WS

Hi,

I recently experienced some problems with my computer and when I set up a Nova Backup to my external drive I noticed some files on my C drive that I hadn't seen before. Since they had a date and time stamp exactly at the time my problem occurred (9/8 11:55am), I was worried about them. They have now changed to 9/17 and I have seen some reference to them when I googled them, so I guess they're legit but I'm still not clear what they are about. Seems odd I never noticed them before when I set up a backup.

The files are:
hiberfil.sys 6.6GB
pagefil.sys 1.3GB
swapfil.sys 2.6MB

Could you please explain these and when they change and what they are used for?

Thank you!

In short I cant copy my music and pic dvd. Have a lot of files (almost 4gb). It gets to about 60% and stops copying as per the screenshot. Sometimes it tells me I have not enough memory to complete the opration (not the case as my hard drives are 160gb with plenty of space)

I have tried copying it to my Master hard drive, slave hard drive and External USB drive, all with the same result.

I think its the number of files (20,000+) as I can copy say a game dvd to my hard drive without issue (4.5gb but like 5 files)

Desperate for a solution or a workaround

This is error message I get (copying 4gb to a drive with 122gb free)

I did some data recovery and pulled over 8 million &quot;files&quot; from an external HD.

Searching 'mp3' and 'doc' I verified there are many valid files on my internal drive.

However, when I try to copy them back the window disappears after about 5 minutes of &quot;preparing to copy&quot; and there is nothing on the drive when I look.

It feels like my system is getting bogged down because of the absurd # of files! I can't even right click -> properties to see exactly how many are on there. It starts going really slow and I get impatient after about 8 million.

Welcome windows especially 64 bit can handle huge amounts file/folder/ the slowdown may be either it is using up your memory or maybe the hard drive cant keep up. You could either use Acronis or ghost to back them up to one space. Or failing that try doing it in small chunks.;

Hello everyone,

I have recently started using iPhone with Windows 7, and I *think* that some of the videos and photos transferred from iPhone to Windows 7 HDD may be using up much of my HDD space.

Besides the obvious: Checking each file and folder for size and contents, is there a 'performance program' that will identify the larger files on a drive? (FWIW, I recall seeing this as an option one a program I have used in my computer 'travails' over the years.)

Thanks a bunch for any input!

Take a look at WinDirStat. It will show you a graphical view of your entire disk usage and you will be able to see what folders and files are using the most disk space.

As most people know, recorded video files can be huge, larger than the capacity of the recycle bin. It has been my experience that files that are too big for the recycle bin are purged directly from the hard disk. I have experimented with recovering such files but have had no success. Does anyone know if it is possible to recover these files and if so what is the process. most software I have tried only shows those files deleted from the recycle bin. I can find no useful reference to recovering large files on the web.

A:Recovering large files

There is some "data recovery software"<---google out there that can retrieve such a file but there will be data loss and offhand I don't know of a free software that's up to the task. Any of the ones you have to pay for well even if they have a trial the have filesize restrictions until software is licensed.

Hi bonkboy,

Welcome to TSG!

The easiest thing to do is write a script.

Let's assume that writing scripts is new or that you do not know how to write one.

Here is an example of a script (Note - since I don't know what OS you are running, this script may not work on your particular OS or any OS due to errors in the script, but it will give you an idea of how to do what you want as a first cut):

#! /bin/sh
# name of script is: copyscript.sh
todir=$1
fromdir=$2
filelist=`ls -1 $1 $fromdir`
for i in $filelist
cp $i $todir
end
exit

Note: $1 and $2 are the first and second parameters passed into the script from the command line.

You would first need to make the script executable:
$ chmod +x copyscript.sh

Then you would need to invoke the script, as follows:
$ ./copyscript.sh <todir> <fromdir>
where you would replace todir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the USB HD is mounted, and, similarly, replace fromdir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the files to be copied are currently located.

You can start here to learn about Shell Scripting and go from there according to your system (Windows, Mac, Linux/Unix).

I have successfully converted about 2 hours of analog, 8mm tape to DVD using Sonic My DVD ver. 4.5. When trying to conver the next hour's worth, it would not let me build a file any longer than about 25 minutes even though it said it recorded about 60 minutes. Any ideas - everything had been working fine? I noticed that the video projects are in C:../My Documents/My DVD's. Is there a limit to that folder size? I wouldn't think so.

Here is of is large slow number files. XP too with the situation We work a lot with IP Cameras or sometimes called network cameras Most of these IP cams have the capability to send jpg images to an ftp server when motion is detected The jpg image is about to k in size and are stored in a folder named for the current date so each day a new folder is created at midnight and all of the images for that hour period are stored there Anyway what is happening is that when these cameras ftp this information to an xp XP is too slow with large number of files. machine on the local mb network some folders end up with A LOT of jpg images in them In one day one camera can store over images in a folder Opening these folders takes XP is too slow with large number of files. a long time sometimes up to minutes just to see the contents I have tried both using and not using File Indexing but it seems to be the same speed either way From what I understand the main resource File Indexing uses is memory The systems these images are being saved to are WinXP Pro machines running at GHZ minimum to GHZ maximum and memory ranges from MB to GB I watch the task manager while loading these directorys and CPU is never over so I assume the CPU has little to do with whatever is causing the system to take so long reading the files Anyone have any ideas as to how I can speed up the process of viewing these folders with so many images in them nbsp

Does anyone know of a way to save a large file across two disks. The file is just over 100mb so I cant use just one zip disk and will have to use two. It is already highly compressed as well. Thanks in advance!

Is there a app or a website or something that can send large files?

So I have about a dozen files that I want to send to a friend in another state. Ranging from about 100 MB to 5 GB. The total of all the files together is roughly 26 GB. One Drive won't let me upload anything over 4 GB. Plus it takes forever.

What I can use to send all these files?

I was looking into this. I don't know how good it is though:

A:Is there anything that can send large files over internet?

I can only think of Dropbox but I don't know what its limitations are.

Also this might be worth looking at

It might be best to research it on the web just to make certain that it has a good reputation.

I have a problem bringing large files from CD-Roms, the roms are not scratched, usually new, but when copying files from those roms that are larger than 280mb (the smallest Iv had trouble with), the progress bar gets bigger and bigger and the minutes remaining gets lower and lower, but when its almost done, the wait time starts getting bigger and bigger untill it gives this error.

Cannot copy "(insert large file here)" : Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

but my friend is able to copy the files from this latest disk, wich leads me to realise that its not a badly burnt disk, and to post here

When trying to conver the next hour's worth, it would not let me build a file any longer than about 25 minutes even though it said it recorded about 60 minutes.

A:Sonic My DVD issues - files too large?

Are you using Win98 or WInXP? I think Win98 can't handles files bigger than 4GB. Does the program requires you to purchase it? If so are there any trial restrictions?

I am trying to transfer over files from my digital camera to my computer via usb, but one of the avi files won't transfer. Most of the images and videos transfer fine, but when it comes time to downloading a large avi file (992MB) it doesn't work.

I have a Canon PowerShot SD630.

Adobe Photoshop Album Starter gives me the error:

Adobe Photoshop Album Starter Edition 3.2 cannot obtain files from this device. Please ensure that the device is connected properly, or that the battery is charged, and try again.

A direct copy of the file using windows never works. It just continues pretending to download, but never actually transfers data.
getCanon! doesn't even find the camera
cam2pc didn't work

Any ideas?
 

A:Canon Camera AVI files too large

That's an odd one, 992 mb is slightly over the binary one gig limit I read about but the camera should have stopped recording automatically before going over that limit but maybe the camera is looking at that file as being too big and preventing the transfer by the windows direct method which should just take it right off no problem.

I think your best bet is to take out the card and plug it directly into a media reader and see if you can get the file off that way, independent of the camera restrictions/malfunction.

Using Outlook Express (with an attachment) and/or Cute FTP, whenever I attempt to transfer a file larger than 500Kb, the transfer starts OK, then gradually the transfer rate slows and finally stops altogether, usually after about 300Kb have been uploaded. Any thoughts on what could be causing this. It started when I bought a new computer with win98.
Thanks in Advance,

i Have a large old windows backup that i no longer use or need and i would like to free up the space that it is using on my external hd. The only problem it just takes ages to do nothing using vista, is there some program that can do this sort of thing quicker than using vista itself??

charlie

A:Quicky delete Large files

its only taking ages because Vista has to move it from an external hard drive to the recycle bin , it has to transfer this huge file via a USB cable which is a HUGE bottleneck

I performed a fresh install of Windows 7 on a SSD. Added a bunch of apps, and moved some of the user folders onto a data drive.

Used space on the SSD shows as 65GB
Sum of files and folders (with operating system files unhidden): 51.5GB

1. What accounts for this difference? It's not the hibernation file or paging file because I can see those.
2. I can see hiberfil.sys is taking up 12.5GB. If I don't want to use hibernation, can I get rid of this?

A:Why is my OS installation so large relative to sum of files?

65 GB is way too much.

Yes you can turn off the hiber file, how much is the page file ? How much is system restore taking up ?

It should only be taking up 20 GBs, depending on page file, hiberfile, system restore etc.

Was this a new ssd ? A clean install to a formatted partition or un allocated space ?

Post a shot of disk management if you like, fully expanded.

Hello all

This has started to happen recently.

Every time I download a large RAR (more than 700 MB), it won't extract properly, and will say there's been a CRC error of sorts. What does that mean?

This has been happening to every large file I download, from multiple sources! I really hope somebody can help me.

Thanks in advance.

A:Constant CRC errors on large RAR files

Means the rar is corrupt. If your using the fat32 system it cannot see
anything properly over 4 gigs,,I think. Cant remember if thats the
exact size..But there is a size limitation using fat32,,,unlike ntfs.

I want to transfer large blocks of files (perhaps an entire hard drives worth) from one computer to another. Can I do that directly via a USB or broadband cable without any software, or will I need some transfer softeware to accomplish this? In either case, how do I do it? The computer I'm transfering files from does not have a burner and there are too many files for that in any case.

I have a one year old computer running WIndows XP. Each week while running Norton Scan, my files seem to increase by a couple of thousand a month. My computer is not running slow and everything seems normal but I now have 185,000 files on it. I daily delete cookies and temporary internet files using the tools function on the menu. I am not downloading anything other than the updates from Norton and WIndows. This has been happening for about six months. Why are so many files being added? Thank you for any help you can offer.
