Im having this problem with one particular drive specifically after i merged two partitions together My original configuration for the machine was my WD Gig that had Windows XP Professional on it and a WD Gig that had Windows Server Eval Edition I had A LOT of crap on both drives and decided i was going to reformat both drives and start clean I got through backing up most of it but then decided that i was just going to make a gig partition on my gig drive that had Server on it So I made the partition dumped all the data that i wanted to keep onto it and Partition a Access with merged denied Magic to folder decided to reformat both drives that had OS s on them When it came to installing the OS s i decided to take a different approcach I put the OS s on there own partitions on just the Gig drive and decided i was going to use the Access denied to a folder merged with Partition Magic gig exclusively for data I loaded back up partition magic onto the XP drive because you cant run it from server Decided that i was going to merge the partitions back it asked me what folder i wanted to put all the data that was on the drive into on the newly merged partition it went all the way through no problems Went to sleep and let it run woke up this morning the drives were merged i had all of my drive back in one but the folder that i moved all the data to is giving me quot Access Denied quot errors i right click on the folder and it tells me Bytes as if nothing is in the folder but if i click onto the properties of the drive it tells me that the drive still has gigs used up so i know the data is there somewhere i just cant get to it I did a thorough scandisk and went to work and it ran still having the same problems I didnt want to really try anything else in fear of losing the rest of the data and not being able to get it back ANY suggestions would be much appreciated nbsp

A:Access denied to a folder merged with Partition Magic

"Access denied" would suggest that you are not using and administrator account or you have denied yourself (administrator) access to the folder.

Hi I merged two partitions on my laptop while using Partition Magic 8 and when the merge was completed (I think error free) my drive that I merged was gone and turned into unallocated space. The merge folder (i called it drive) was empty and the drive i tried to merge with stayed at the same size. I lost all of my documents and most importanty my 20+ gbs of music. When i start partition magic it says that there is some drive geomery error and i should back up my data and reformat my pc, but i need those documents and would like my music back. I can't undelete any partitions, and they were both NTFS partitions created using the XP setup. i used it before with no problems, but what happended to my data and can I get it back ?? also has anyone had this problem ever??

My first experience of Vista isn't great so far!

I've just bought a new laptop and first thing I've done is to clear off junk I don't want and get it set up how I want it.

I thought I'd move my docs folder to a different drive but have managed to merge (I think?) My documents and My Music into the same folder. I went to properties and changed location for both folders for F:\Files thinking it would put a sub-folder in for the music, but it didn't...

I now have two music folders and if I try and change one of them to documents I then end up with 2 documents folders.

Please can someone tell me how to get it back to F:\Files being my docs folder and F:\Files\Music being my music folder.

Thanks loads (I hope!!)


A:Documents & Music Folder Merged. How do I get them back??

Read 'Method 2' from the following: You could set the folders back to where they originally were, or set them to your new chosen location. The important step you missed from 'Method 1' is to create the destination folders first. This step isn't necessary, but it does avoid the confusion you ended up with. This step also appears to be missing from 'Method 2', so tread carefully. G

So while I was trying to tranfer the natural installation path from the C drive (SSD) to my HDD which is on the B drive I seem to have somehow merged them together.Whenever I create a folder on my Hard Drive it instantly gets merged onto the downloads folder. I also managed to somehow rename my downloads folder entirely. HDD also seems to have turned up in my "Username" folder. when I click the Downloads tab on the left side it directs me to the here.

A:I have accidentally merged my Hard Drive with my Downloads folder.

Looks like you've renamed Downloads to B:\ and created a folder called Downloads in B:\
What's in your Devices and Drives?
Or maybe you've accidentally dragged Downloads in to B:\

I am running a Win 7 OS on an SSD and I have some programs installed on a different hard drive. And I want to move this program files folder on the same hard drive but different partition. Is it possible to do this without breaking the program links? If so, can anyone please tell me how? Thanks.

A:Moving Programs Files folder to another partition

I'd install programs to the SSD to benefit from the faster speeds.

It's the data which can be moved to the HD using a method like User Folders - Change Default Location or to avoid moving System files simply copy the User folders to HD and link to related Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums.

You can then uninstall and reinstall your most used Programs to the SSD.

Hi all, this is my first post. I'm not sure which category this fits in, so I'll post here first.

I just got a new Samsung RC420 laptop with Win7 Home Premium edition OS. When I was installing a software last night, a message pops up and tells me I cannot continue installation until I close a certain program (in this case it was Adobe Updater, which was not opened at all).

Today, I am trying to open "my briefcase" from a USB thumb, but a message pops up telling me I cannot open "my briefcase" as it appears a file in it is already open. But nothing else is open on my computer. It was my first time opening anything from the USB thumb.

Is this a common problem with win7? How can I rectify it? Please help.


A:Cannot open folder or continue task because file or folder is open?

No this is not a common problem with Windows 7.

Looks like you need to use the program Unlocker. This program works for both x86 and x64 platforms.

Download and install the program. This will add an entry "Unlocker" to your right click context menu.

Whenever you face a problem mentioned above, on the target file right click and choose "Unlocker". This will show any program / process currently accessing the file. It also gives you an option to kill that program / process so that you can go ahead and do whatever you wish to accomplish.

Hi, i deleted my partitions by mistake. Drive originally had 2 partitions, 100MB (Windows 7 setup partitiion) and 930GB (Data storage partition).

In summary:

1) I deleted the 100MB partition (because disk is(was) now storage disk) and 930gb partition were deleted too.
2) I started following a guide from microsoft and re-create the 2 partitions as RAW (without format) (i ruined everything on this..).
3) I deleted the 2 raw partition and created a full space partition to the disk QUICK FORMATTING NTFS.
4) Started to try "Recuva" but most of the files recovered (1,000,000 files) are broken, i tried the option to recover FOLDER STRUCTURE but fails.

Is there any way to recover the files and FOLDER STRUCTURE properly? Except of the partitions deletions/creations i didn't write anything inside the disk.

Thanks and regards,

A:Recover Files after deleting partition with folder structure?


Welcome to Seven Forums
First course of action would be to use the affected hard drive as little as possible.
I'm not exactly clear as to what you did in steps one to three above. Can you confirm the following:
The disk in question is not your system drive?
The 100MB Windows 7 partition was on that drive?
I think it's fair to say that you may not be able to recover the folder structure, a dedicated data-recovery shop may be able to help out with that but primarily with file recovery.

Will await your response and regards

I have one folder in which I keep all my music. There are 605 items, consisting of both folders and music files.
I sort the folder by "date last saved" so that my newest songs are always at the bottom and the oldest are at the top, after the sub folders

However, whenever I open the folder, windows seems like it is re-searching and rebuilding the cache, taking upwards of 5 seconds in order for the folder to be sorted again.

This only started happening after I reinstalled windows, however that is all that has changed. My music is on another drive, the same drive that it was before I reinstalled.

Why does it keep doing this, and how do I get it to remember how it is sorted?

I'm taking a guess but it sounds like the network target is not yet available when the shell tries to remap the connection after boot. Maybe a batch "net use" command after a delay would prove or disprove this theory.

Hello thistle2 and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see that you are running msconfig in /auto mode which means that you may have selectively removed some items in the past from the startup procedure. This can hide malware from us when we are performing a fix, so we would like you to reenable those startup entries by doing the following:Please click on Start, then Run, and type msconfig and then press Enter. When the window opens you should be on the General tab. Click on the Normal Startup item. Then press ok until you are out of the program. It will ask you to reboot so reboot normally.Now please create a new Hijackthis Log and post it here as a reply. I will review it when it comes in.OT

I'm in the trenches trying to develop a Windows 7 image for work. This is what I've done so far:
I installed Win 7 64-bit on a test computer and did some customizations ( added programs, etc..). I then ran sysprep from C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep... and the process completed just fine. Okay, so I decided to do further customization of the sysprep process by creating an unattend.xml file using WAIK... Ran Sysprep again - not bad results - but I now notice when I attempt to open any log files ( Pather folder ) or "open" the unattend.xml file I get the following error message:
"Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\unattend.xml' Make sure you typed the name correctly and Try Again"
Yet the files are visible in Windows Explorer...
Can anybody tell me "what's what", here??????
thank you,

Welcome to Eight Forums,

The upgrade seems to be an issue in your case. I'd suggest for you to download the latest driver from the manufacturer's site for your network adapter, see if that helps. I don't think that there's a way to revert your Maverick's SMB version.

Please post an update or your progress.

A:Files won't open after being copied to a new folder!

Security Permission issue

Right click the folder you want to open and choose Properties>Security. Make sure their is a group named "Everyone". If not click Add>Advanced>"Find Now" and choose everyone. Click OK and you should no longer get those nasty Access Denied messages. (refer to the above link to allow specifically your user account to access the old Hard Drive folders)

Note: in Windows Xp Home, the "Security" menu will not show. Just start your computer in Safe Mode (continuously press F8 function key on computer Startup then select Safe Mode)
Also confirm that you are running an Administrator privileged account. (Check Users in Control Panel)

I accidentally deleted my RECIPE FOLDER containing several categories of recipes with several files in each folder. I could not find my deleted files in MY Recycle Bin so I recovered my RECIPE FOLDER by restoring my system to an earlier date. Now that I have recovered My RECIPE FOLDER, all my files are now script and cannot be read. These are recipes that I have been collecting for over 8 years. It's a treasure to me. How do I return these script files to normal. My folder was stored on an HP Pavilion Laptop using Windows 7.

All the files exist on a server 2008 R2 NAS shared folder. Our users can copy files from a zipped folder to another non-zipped without issue on their XP workstations.  On the new Windows 7 workstations, neither copy/paste, ctrl+c/ctrl+v, nor
drag and drop move all the selected files to the destination.  The progress popup shows progress and then just disappears without event  nor error.  The destination folder will contain some of the selected files but seldom all.    I
have been able to recreate the problem and have applied several TN posted solutions but the issue remains.  Has this been seen by anyone else?  I am not interested any third party apps or complicated workarounds being my end users are not technical.

I've just started using my new desktop pc which I bought specifically to download stuff from the internet and to my horror it wants to save everything in my temp internet files folder. Does anyone know how to change this please? I've tried messing about with the security settings but that didn't solve it. I've seen a few threads on here but have yet to find an answer.

Now wishing I'd stuck with my old pc on XP!!!

Hi i am running Windows 7 64-bit home edition and regularly clean out my cookies, temp folders from the tools button in firefox, i recently got UniBlue and did a scan and it read over 6,000 files in this folder "C:\Users\Kyle\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\" however when i go to my windows explorer and look for this file, i am cut off at ...\Microsoft\Windows\. There are 12 folders available for me to look through yet looking at the properties tab of \Windows\ shows over 120 folders in \Windows\ and most bugs like to hide in temporary internet files. Does anyone know how to unlock that file so i can do it myself?

No error statement. Nothing happens. Has anyone ever experienced this? How can I correct this? I tried resetting my folder settings to Windows default and that didn't work.

I opened a word doc I received as an attachment in an e-mail and edited the document. I then saved under a new name without navigating to a preferred folder and apparently the document was saved in a folder called OLK96 which is in the Temporary Internet Files folder in User/Local Settings.
Now I find I cannot navigate to this folder in order to open up the document again, the folder OLK96 does not appear in the Temporary Internet Folder when searching with Windows Explorer. I've got Show Hidden Files switched on in my folder options, and other files appear in the Temporary Internet Files folder but not the subfolder OLK96.
I'm sure somebody else must have encountered this problem before, we all fall for the temptation to edit documents we have opened from e-mail attachments, don't we?

Whenever i use Media Player for music, movies, or anything, a folder labeled "Music" appears on my desktop completely empty.
I think it has been going on for a few months now

It happens a few seconds after opening WMP and if i delete it right away it wont reappear until i open WMP again or open another file.

If anyone has any explanation, besides Format C: (Im getting tired of those), i would appreciate them

A:Magic folder appearing

Not sure which version of windows you are using, but usually with XP, I believe it will always create a folder called My Music, when you run WMP if there is not one present, but it is usually found under "My Documents".

I know this happens with Windows Movie Maker, where it creates "My Videos" when I run it.

Ok folks,
I recently bought a Linksys Router to install home wireless network. It came with a CD so I installed it and found out that I had installed Network Magic a 7 day free trial period, then it reverted back to a Basic configuration that is free. Well, my 7 days is over and my Wireless home network is still working fine; but my ? is how the heck to you get rid of the darn NM folder on my Desktop? When I right click on it there is no option to delete it? I tried the same thing in Win. expl and no luck there, no option to delete.
Any ideas? What would happen if I just uninstalled NM, would I have to set up my network again?

From looking at other computers and on the Internet, it appears that the Contacts folder is supposed to have a customized menu bar with a "New Contact" button, but on this machine the menu looks the same as every other folder. I don't use this folder/app very often, so I can't say exactly when this changed, but the desktop.ini file in this folder has a relatively recent modification date, and contains the following:

[email protected]%CommonProgramFiles%\system\wab32res.dll,-10100
[email protected]%CommonProgramFiles%\system\wab32res.dll,-10200

I can still add new contacts by selecting "Contact" from the "New" submenu, but it'd be easier if I had the button in the menu bar. How can I get it back?

Relevancy 71.81%

First, please forgive me if I have overlooked this issue in the many searches I have performed thus far.

I would like to know if anyone has a way to change all folder icons within a single folder to one specific icon without performing each one individually. I have over 1,400 folders within a master folder of which I would like to change the child folder icons. I really don't wish to perform this on a folder-by-folder basis.
This is not a Default Folder Icon Change inquiry. This is simply all child folders within a single master folder. I would also be interested if the change would affect all folders of a specific type. Windows 7 does allow the 'setup' of a folder to be distributed (details view with selected details, order, and column size for example) but the icon did not distribute as well.

Any suggestions?

A:Bulk Change All Folder Icons in Single Folder or Folder Type

First, a little bit of theory. What happens when a person sets a custom icon for a folder in Windows 7?
1. Attributes of a Folder change to Read-only (of the folder, NOT content!).
2. A hidden system file created inside that folder, which contains a link to the icon.

Thus, having such file as model, it is possible simply copy it across desired folders, and change attributes of those folders correspondingly.

Secondly, having this idea in my mind, I have put all of my little knowledge of Batch files together and created a script.
BEFORE script is started the following is needed to be done:
Master folder needs to be selected and a custom icon applied to it.

1. Script is placed inside that master folder and launched.
2. First, script checks if hidden system file with custom icon settings is there.
3. Secondly, script looks for subfolders and start changing its attributes.
4. Thirdly, script copies this settings file to all subfolders of current master folder, including all levels of subfolders.

For 100 folders it took about 21 seconds, for 200 folders with different levels of subfolders it took about 57 seconds on my laptop.

I have included remarks (comments) in the source code for better understanding what is going on.

UPDATE: Original file deleted. Script was not meant to be applied to system folders.
Please check a newer FIXED version at this post.

When I try to move files from one folder to another (or off a device on to my computer), not all of them move. I have tried drag & drop, and cut & paste. I don't get an error message or anything like that, some of the files just don't move. So I have to go through file by file and see what didn't make it, very tedious! I have tried moving as few as 25 at a time, and they still don't all make it. Can anyone help?

A:Not all files will move from folder to folder

Seems like some were in use by something.

Anyway, can you try using Fastcopy? (this is the official website with download, select Executable (32bit), yes the guy making it is japanese, don't worry about the download page being in japanese, the program is in english)
It's simple and does usually tell you why it wasn't able to move files, so you can have a clue of what is going on.
For moving lots of files, it's much better than copy-paste/drag&drop. Also because of its options (as explained on its site).

In case of other problems, report back.

4-I created a New folder and stored files as I rename the folder to Video, all the files disappears excepts the text files.

Hello Preman and Prasad, and welcome to Seven Forums.

While in your Documents library, double check using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to make sure that the full path of this included "Video" folder is correct or even added to the library. Renaming the folder at it's original location may have broken it's link in the library until you correct the included folder's name as well.

Hi everyone,
I am working on a simple crawler that downloads web pages and stores it on my computer on local drive. The crawler works fine for the simple task I needed. My problem is, the crawler fails to create files and save the web pages once the number of files in the folder is around 630. The crawler works normally but the files are not created. I think this has something to do with Operating System than the crawler. Disk quota is off on the computer. I run Windows 7 Professional 64 bit version on laptop. Do you see any reason why this happens?

A:Problem with number of files in a folder

More likely that the script processing limit(cpu time) is reached.
Unless you have quotas enabled, the file count is not limited to this smallish number.

This is a really strange thing that has never happened before with any of my other computers, but:

In windows XP Home Edition (Svc Pack 2), whenever I have a folder open with a certain kind of video file--I'm pretty sure it's either .AVI or .MPG files--the folder locks up, freezes my desktop, and can only be restored by using the task manager to end the not responding folder. If the video file is on the desktop, there is nothing to be done but to restart manually.

I do get some error messages from time to time saying that Dr. Watson Debugger has quit unexpectedly, but I'm not sure if that is a different issue.

This is really annoying me, and frustrating me with an otherwise wonderful new computer.

Any suggestions?

Its real wierd.

Im using one pc with windows 7 and another with XP.
When I copy a file on the pc with win7 to the shared folder, I can see and access the file fine from the XP pc.

However, when I move (Ctrl+X) a file to the shared folder on the pc with win7, the file does not apear when I go to the shared folder from the XP pc.

Anyone knows what Im doing wrong?

BY THE WAY, is there a way to share the entire C drive or we are strict to the public folders? Its wierd that I gave full access permissions to the C drive, yet an error occurs while trying to access from XP. Only the public folders can be accessed.

You still need to allow premission to access the shared files on the Win7 machine. Just set up permissions on the Win7 machine by going to "Network and sharing center" and then to the left choose "Change Advance sharing settings". The select the settings in the pictures below.

You should also have access to the entire C drive once you do that.

A:Partition Magic problem

Do you have another computer you could try this drive in? If you do, look for what's called a "jumper" on the hard drive itself- should be a little plastic thing overtop some pins. Right now, it's probably set on "master" or "cable select". You'll want to change this to "slave" and stick it in the other computer, which has to be running NT, XP, or 2000 in order to see your XP partition. If you're successful in booting up, look for some extra drive letters. If your files are still intact, you'll be able to access them from there.

open the System applet in the control panel. Click the Advanced tab. Under the "Startup and Recovery" section click the "Settings" button. Hit the "Edit" button and this will open the boot.ini file, the file that tells the NT Loader where your operating systems are. You should have a line that looks something like this...

Your rdisk value is probably different than mine, but what you should do is copy the "multi..." line and paste another copy below it like this...

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

now if i understand your partitions right, your partition value is probably set at 2 right now, which boots to XP. what you need to do is change the "2" to a "1" (indicating the first partition) in the line you just pasted. You may also want to change the WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" line to WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" to be more accurate about the partition you are linking to.

in the menu hit File, the Save, and close the boot.ini.

when you reboot, you should be given a choice as to which OS you want to boot to.

I've used the Partitionmagic recently to make a logical partition on my laptop computer. I slept during the process under which my computer rebooted and went into a blue screen where i saw the process of resizing partition and another process going. When I woke up, I discovered that my computer kept rebooting without even logging into the windows. That is, before I could see the "Welcome" screen, it had already rebooted.

Then I saw the screen prompting me to go into safe mode....with cmd....normal boot....last best config... etc. I've selected every one of them but they didn't work out. My computer still kept rebooting. I can't log into windows.

How should I deal with this?

A:Partition Magic Problem HELP!!!

your system had a crash and your partition is damaged. You have no choice except to reformat your drive, erase all partitions and install xp.

You might be able to recall some data if you use your drive on another computer as a slave. Get a cheap usb to ide adapter. $20

Hi, i'm a newbie at this site and have a problem with partition magic 8.0.

i have an 80G external drive named myBook(G drive) and tried to split it into 2 partitions (D, E) by using PM. Unfortunately, i forgot to back up my data before doing this. After the PC rebooted, i found that the original drive letter (myBook G drive) disappeared and none of the data is traceable . Now, i see only one partition (D) without any data in the external drive and have no idea what happened during partition. Does it mean the external drive was formatted during the process? Is the data recoverable?

Thanks for your help .

A:partition magic problem

ALWAYS back up your data - especially before attempting serious HD manipulations like this. It will be difficult if not impossible to recover your data. Try using a file recovery program. Provided you haven't overwritten some of the data, you might be able to salvage some.

try these: undelete plus and PC Inspector file recovery

both are free

I have installed partition magic 8.0 and made 2 partitioning DOS based diskettes. When I use these two diskettes to partition and format (as NTFS) a new disk and install the windows xp on that partition , windows xp CD does not recognize that partition and wants to create its own partition. Any idea?

A:Problem with Partition magic 8.0

Why not let XP create it's own partition? There's no reason to use PM for that task.

I have merged two partitions, one containing data and one empty . I now realize I should have deleted the empty partition. My problem is that I cannot access the files on the new partition created.From the disk information it would appear they are still there i.e still appropriate amount of used space to free space. The partition now just contains the one file with the name of the new partition I created but clicking on it gives me the message "Access is Denied". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello everyone :).

I recently installed Partition magic 8 in order to resize my D drive. I changed my C drive size from 60GB to 32GB and put the free space in my D drive.(which was 52 GB earlier and later was going to be around 80GB).

But I made an extremely stupid mistake. During the partition process(when the system restarted and the partitioning was going on), I pressed a key by mistake and the process got aborted.All my data is safe, but the issue is that Partition magic shows my space as 80GB, but my space in d drive is still 53GB. The C drive space is also 32 GB, so I have no clue where the free space, of around 30GB, has gone. I don't know how to recover it. Anyone here who can help me ? Thanks a lot!

I have Windows XP Pro on my computer. I ran Partition Magic 8.1 to resize partitioned drive d and e on one disk. The process froze, so I shut down and restarted the computer. Now apparently PM renamed the E partition as pqrp and partition E does not show up at all, neither does the data on E. Have been unable to recover. Downloaded PTEdit32.exe and tried to run it but that fails with error #5 starting PowerQuest Engine.

Have not been able to chat with tech at Symantec, as their chat engine does not load.

Help is much appreciated.

First off, I NEVER perform multiple operations with disk management software. There's too many variables involved and one slip can render everything unreadable (as you've found out). It may take longer to do it one step at a time - but in the long run it'll save you effort.Take a look here for some of the freeware solutions. Look for the Hard Drive & System Utilites Section on the first page:

A while back, I created a new partion on my HD. No problems, things were great. Well today I decided to merge them back together to get it back to it's single partion state. Well the merge went ok accept that I can't access the folder that was created from the merge that has all my files and junk. I click the folder and get C:\"foldername" is not accessible. Access denied.

Any help would be appreciated.


A:Partition magic problem

Well, it's been my experience that the PM merge capability is the one area in PM that is not all that solid. I've had it screw up several times. I don't know of any way to recover once PM scrambles the partition doing a merge. I was unsuccessful both times. I did have backups, something that PM cautions you to do before starting these operations.

I am trying to move the unallocated space to the C: drive using this program. But I am getting an error after it says it moved it and tells me to reboot. When my comp loads back up, the space wasn't moved to the C: drive.
