Q: Microsoft 640XL SD Card data grows up suddenly and displays Low Storage sense

My Microsoft 640XL mobile SD Card (16GB capacity), data grows up suddenly and displays Low Storage sense.
I checked every folder in SD card and it shows not more than 2GB of data. All my SD card has only 9.5GB of data and remaining 6GB of data is unknown.
Can anyone advise me up what my 6GB of data has and is it a virus or something other which i don,t know .....???

you require minimum 2gb of internal phone memory in order to successfully update to anniversary update.

Moreover we are expecting a new version on the upcoming patch Tuesday. The upcoming patch will hugely improve the experience with more bug fixes and improvements. '
If you can manage a hard reset and fresh start with your phone , i would suggest you to upgrade to windows 10 because upgrading to windows 10 should always be followed by a hard reset to counter and fix any glitch arisen due to the upgrade and if you cant then stick with 8.1.

It sounds like Notepad.exe got corrupted. You can restore it from the Windows CD. Search the CD for the filename, replacing the last character with an underscore; for example, Notepad.ex_. Once found use EXPAND.

I have purchased a new desktop, Core2Duo 2.2GHz, 1Gb RAM and 160Gb SATA HDD.
I have partitioned as 30+60+60 GB approx and installed XP on C: drive. But now I am having different thoughts.
1) Should I have a small 4Gb FAT32 partition after C: and move pagefile there?
2) I have some old IDE drives, 80Gb. Is it better to have my Data on a seperate old HDD vs a seperate partition on a new one?
3) Should I put a pagefile on a seperate partition of the 2nd IDE HDD also, if I decide to install one.

What should I do? Especially about the data, partition or new disk?

A:New XP Install / Pagefile / Data storage

For a home system you should leave the pagefile at system managed. There is no benefit making a partition on the same drive as the OS for a pagefile. Putting the pagefile on a older slower drive is also not advised. I would also keep your data on the 160gig drive but if you have a 80gig drive you can use it to backup/copy your data to it.

A:Software to sync data between PCs with usb storage?

Sorry, no software recommendation. Such an app probably doesn't exist, though it's possible. I did look around because it's an interesting concept.
Didn't find it, maybe because storage is so cheap that there's no demand for it.
It may or may not be complex to develop, and need a step to delete synced data from the stick so it doesn't fill up, yet keep all file info needed for syncing.
That's the main issue I see, but I'm no expert on file parameters used for syncing.
Using KISS, it's best to have all the actual data you want to mirror.
That also provides an additional backup.
I suggest you get a 64gb stick or enough USB HD or SSD and use the software syncing method that has worked for you.
But maybe somebody can better answer your question.

Hello astrooptics

I don`t think you will gain from putting the Page File on the old drive as it is probably slower than your new system`s SATA drive

If it was me I would just use a partition for Data and then use the old IDE drive to back up to if you think it is reliable

I can't access the data on USB storage devices or camera cards. The USB ports work fine with keyboards and mice, and when I opened the "Safely remove hardware" window I noticed that cards and USB hardware are listed but the generic volumes have no drive letter in parentheses. Despite this I have a USB hard drive plugged in that does work, appearing as drive G:. None of them show up in the Storage section of the Computer Management tool.

Let me know if any additional information is needed.

Hi Vexxum. As long as the DVD is not exposed to sunlight or submerged in water for long periods, it will last indefinitely. With the cost of large volume flash drives going down, many people are migrating to them.

A personal choice really. If the 4.7GB capacity is enough for you then it's a pretty safe storage medium.

Can you please post a screenshot from DISKMGMT.MSC, expanded to full-screen and with the columns spread so that we can see all of the text in the cells in the upper portion.

Also, you may or may not have destroyed the previous presumably single-partition 700GB drive, by creating that 8GB partition somewhere on it (or replacing whatever was there before). So you may have two partitions now, or just one 8GB partition, or who knows until we see the screenshot.

Finally, do you have a backup of what was on your D-drive previously? Or not?

Hi all please bear with me on this it DRP backup/storage Data for solution may be long but i d really appreciate some input from the Data backup/storage solution for DRP more experienced gurus Data backup/storage solution for DRP on this As I T Manager in our company i have to put a Disaster Recvoery Plan in action for the I T Currently we have an LTO tape drive in a Dell tower server which backups up gb fully once per week takes tapes and days with weekday incrementals after that takes tape all across the whole system of servers Now here are the options loosely that i m thinking of Install an autoloader with or tapes so that backup doesn t take days due to manual loading of tapes Take tapes off-site Pros cheaper faster Cons not as reliable imho Install NAS or SAN box to hold all data Create wireless bridge Mbit to our other site yards away Use some appropriate synchronsing software that will on its first run probably take a weekend to sync all the data across to the other site and from then on should be just nightly sync ing of the data changes during that day This could also work in reverse for the other unit so that their data is store off-site too Pros more reliable less human interaction to screw it up Cons Price Ok so does anyone have any opinions on the options i m exploring Personally i like the sound of option so can anyone recommend an appropriate program to sync the data the way i want it Do you have any other options to put forward Oh i m also looking at putting a leased line in but that won t be fast enough to use as data transfer of this magnitude Does anyone in the UK have any recommended suppliers of leased line Thanks for any advice offered nbsp

A:Data backup/storage solution for DRP

Filesystem synchronisation is not that good of an idea.. What if the synchronisation happens after disaster has struck and good data on the "backup" gets overwritten? You need to have several copies of backed up data at any point in time.

I would recommend - daily incrementals and weekly full backups to disk. Either a plain single huge SATA drive or some sort of an array (you can go up to monster standalone SCSI RAID enclosures here) depending on your desire for speed and/or redundancy. Backup to disk is fast and (selective) restore is amazingly fast. You can use filesystem synchronisation or backup software - doesn't matter.

Copy the backup disk contents to tape at any suitable time for offsite keeping or archival. Still needs an autoloader or a library for that I suppose...

If you are interested in disastoer recovery and archival is not necessary at all, then you can foget about tape completely. Just make several copies of the backup disk(s) whenever you feel like it.

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?

Is there a way to run 4 displays on a single graphics card?

I know there are some graphics cards with 4 mini DisplayPort and you can get adapters for DVI and HDMI, but most graphics cards have two dual-link DVI outputs

I know you can run 1920x1200 on a single-link DVI and 2560x1600 on a dual-link DVI, but can you run two individual monitors say 1680x1050 each from a single dual-link DVI output via a splitter?

A:Can you run 4 displays on a single graphics card?

The video cards at work have a single DMS-59 output which can split into two dual-link DVI outputs.

It seems there is no video card with two DMS-59 outputs, so four Mini DisplayPort outputs is needed like this card here: AMD FirePro 2460 Multi-View: four Mini DisplayPort sockets, 13W, no frills -- Engadget

It would probably be cheaper to get two PCI video cards.

Hi -Is this where you went to try and get the driver for Dell ATI-102-A924( 256 MB Radeon X1300 ?? your graphics driver first. Turn off your pc and reseat your ATI x1300 Reinstall the card driver from the above link -OR -Remove your old regular standard graphics card and leave your x1300 connected. Connect your monitor to the x1300 and you should be good to go. You do not have to have a video card installed to switch/upgrade to a newer card, just swap them out and thats it This is a "minor" concern if you have cleaned and dusted inside the computer as it should usually be under 50?CCPU - Intel Celeron 420 @ 1.60GHz 55 ?C <<

Hi all,

Just looking for a bit of advice on the way that internet explorer stores previously entered form data.

A few days ago I used the royal mail tracking service to track a delivery that I am expecting. This involves entering the unique reference on the receipt into a search box, and it looks up the shipment details.

Unfortunately I have now lost the receipt, and royal mail cannot give me another copy of the reference number.

As a bit of a long shot, I was hoping that internet explorer may have stored the data in a temporary internet file, or cookie or something.... (As you may be able to tell I'm not a computer expert )

If anyone can offer any help or advice it would be greatly appreciated

I don't have a problem, but my curiosity is piquied, because I use several external USB HDDs including one thumb-drive I share between Linux and Windows machines.

How would I know a USB storage device has a "Shortcut Virus" before it causes problems ?
- by jumanji at

Jumanji's tip "keep the Shift key pressed for a while so that any "autorun" initiated by the shortcut virus ( if there is one) does not run" ... is very interesting.

I thought "AutoRun" on external USB drives in Win7 and later has been discontinued by Microsoft ?
- the only disks that can/do use autorun are bootable drives and movie disks etc but not data storage devices(?)

I would appreciate any clarification, thank you

I have my data files stored in d:\data, which is encrypted with EFS. My removable drive backups are all encrypted as well. Obviously, I don't use MS Backup for that, since it has no encryption. I felt reasonably secure until I learned about the data file copies that are created with each System Restore Point. These are the ones restored with "Restore Previous Versions" on the Explorer drop down menu. They are stored in the Volume Information folder.

Could these files be read by someone who got hold of my internal hard drive? If so, is there a way to encrypt these files? I do realize that these "previous versions" files are limited. It is not my whole data folder, just most recent changes and limited by the size I set for previous versions storage. Nonetheless, I am wondering if I should just turn of this Windows feature for security.

I have many USB driven devices, flash drives, MP3 players, etc. and when i transfer data to these devices, the data becomes corrupt and unusable, or in music/pictures, the data only seems to get partially there. After transferring some images to the mass storage device, they came out garbled, like the pixels were rearranged and put in the wrong order. Some images are not even viewable. Music skips, as if I was playing a CD with deep scratches.

Transferring data from these devices have no effect on the data, it only occurs when I am sending it to the device. I have used every USB port on my computer with no success. One bizarre occurrence I have noticed is that I have a USB printer that seems to be unaffected by this corruption.

A:USB Mass Storage Device Data Corruption

How many USB devices do you have and how many ports. Are you using hubs?

External devices are slow compared to hard drives. If you are experiencing corruption playing music and video files from USB, they may be too slow. Copy the files to your hard drive.

USB has limited bandwidth, like anything. Too much data cannot be transferred at one time.

I have a Startech brand PCI add-in card to get some extra SATA ports on my old Biostar MCP 6PB M2+ board.

In Disk Manager an Hitachi drive attached to the card shows up as a SCSI device.

However my backup software doesn't see it (old copy of Norton Ghost on CD) and the POST operations do not show it in the BIOS. Win7 reports that no driver updates are needed for the Hitachi on the Startech card.

It's very confusing. A new motherboard is due for me but this problem solved would extend the use of the Biostar. Why would the Win7 see the device but nothing else?

Later that night my computer started freezing from time to time while online but it was nothing that a ctrl-alt-delete couldn't fix. I came on here and got some help, much obliged to those two individuals, who convinced me to restore my system to a few days ago and then slowly reinstall the stuff starting with the graphics card drivers.

So I still got a couple freezes after putting on everything but the suspect fingerprint scanner. I then pulled off everything one by one in reverse order until I only had the GC driver and a driver for my laptop's mouse which had been working prior to the installation but was a bit glitchy. These two things are the important ones, the hp software I can care less about at this point.

So with that in mind, and only these two things on the system, Late last night my computer crashed while online, watching a youtube video and on another forum. I mention youtube because my computer had frozen on youtube prior to the crash. Upon start up I got a blue screen with a ton of text and it crashed again. Upon the second start up I got back in normally and uninstalled the graphics card driver, hello fuzzy screen, and am now wondering how I can successfully get the graphics card driver up without creating problems with 7. I'm on a 64bit system by the way.

If you need more info just ask. I have to leave for class in about and hour and a half but I just can't wait any longer I'd like to start getting this resolved.

Hi and welcome

we need the actual file created during the crash. use these to find and upload it to us.

A blog post written by the 10 storage in you Microsoft: 15GB save Windows will Windows team says that the fresh lump of software is lean and compact thanks to compression and some other features Windows employs two separate and independent approaches for achieving a compact footprint First Windows leverages an efficient compression algorithm to compress system files Second recovery enhancements have removed the requirement for a separate recovery image it says Microsoft: Windows 10 will save you 15GB in storage With current builds Windows can efficiently compress system files That gives back approximately GB of storage for -bit and GB of storage for -bit Windows Phones will also be able to use this same efficient compression algorithm and likewise have capacity savings with Windows The team said that Windows refresh and reset tools Microsoft: Windows 10 will save you 15GB in storage have been changed so that they no longer need a recovery image - the firm said that this is often a pre-install - and that this makes it even more roomy Article What does this compression scheme do for accessing system files offline using something like linux or PE disk Will it be even possible As far as not needing a recovery image it means system image programs like Macrium or Aoemi will be more important then ever

I had to repair my laptop screen lately and i've left it with a guy for 2 or 3 days. Since then i'm a little paranoid, he asked me for my password and i gave it to him.

First weird thing i noticed, is that a data partition (100Mo) suddenly appeared :

What do you think ?
I'm also interested in an in-depth scan if you would please assist me.

Thank you.

A new installation of Windows 7 usually places a 100 mb partition on the main drive. It is a system reserved partition and it is normal. I usually hide it by removing the drive letter using the OS Disk Management utility, since it seems best not to mess with its content. Here's a related link.

First thing I'd try is a CHKDSK. Open up a command prompt window and type: CHKDSK /F

Answer the question with a YES if it asks you if you want to perform the operation upon the next reboot.

After this operation completes, click Start-->Run. Type SFC /SCANNOW Make sure you have your XP CD on hand as it will sometimes be required during this process.

Adding the NTFS file structure and formatting are two ways of saying the same thing. So, no, you can't have one without the other.

1) Try to recover your data.

2) Try to recover the lost partition.
