MDBData Folder

Q: MDBData Folder

The Size of Priv1 .EDB and HTML on my Exchange 2000 both are making like 15 GB although I don't have a big list of email accounts, its max 50. It 16 GB a week back I run offline defragmentation and used NT Backup. It reduces just 3GBs and today its again on 15GB. Definately if in a week it gained 2GB then in 2 or 3 days my Exchange will be down.

Kindly help me how to reduce the size of these files.

Preferred Solution: MDBData Folder

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.)

16GB is the builtin database size limit for Exchange. Don't worry - it will never grow beyond that size.

My MDBDATA folder has grown to an enormous size. Close to 40GB!!! Each file is named along the lines of E0000XXX.log and is 5 MB in size. Can I just delete these log files or are they needed for Exchange? Also is there a way to limit the size that this folder will grow to in the future? Thanks for any help.

DO not delete any files in the MDBDATA folder...this is the exchange server database. You can run the optimization tool to clean up and optimize for your network.

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.

ONLY AFTER THAT
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.

PLEASE READ NEW INSTRUCTION IN THAT POST.

Hello, I want what's inside the external hard drive, to look the same no matter the pc it's plugged into.
So, I found how to change Folder Icons permanently from another thread,..
Now, what remains is changing the folder view, or else the icons won't be clear, so is that even possible?
PS. I know it's kinda OCD ..

A:External Hard Drive, Permanent Folder View (Folder Icon Size)

I did some research , and found that it was possible on windows xp via the "desktop.ini" through "FolderType=string" (eg: pictures, videos), but it seems it's impossible on windows 7.
The reason is that the " Show Common Tasks" in Folder options has been removed from windows 7.

Hi All,
I've recently setup a clean install of Win10 onto a new system.
Prior to this I backed up my 'Users' folder from the old setup (also Win10) onto my d:\ drive, on a second HDD.
Now that the system is up and running, I've noticed that the backup 'Users' folder is being 'seen' by Win10 as a system folder, resulting in my inability to rename it etc.
Searching for a newly created document that is located in 'My documents' on c:\drive results in it being called up as existing in:
c:\users\neil\documents (where it actually lives)
d:\users\neil\my documents
d:\documents and settings\neil\documents

How best can I disassociate the d:\drive backup 'Users' folder from my system folders ?

I've had this problem for a few months, just lived with it. In the attached screen shots, you will see I have no folder trees in any of the pop up Add, Move, or Copy pop ups in Explorer and Windows Media Player. I have no clue if this can be restored to show again. This has happened before I upgraded Media Player so it shouldnt be that. I'm thinking Windows Corruption somewhere. I have not and do not have any malware on this machine or any other that I have networked. My system is clean and runs 1000%. Any ideas on how I can restore the folder trees?

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 have a Windows XP SP2 laptop, that has offline folder's enabled for users My documents folder. The laptop is within a corporate environment, fully MS patched, Symantec AV, all up to date and anti-Spam installed. Finally it is configured for French language, as that is where its based.
However since yesterday, they have reported that strange folder names are automatically appearing. i have cleared out these folders from the associated win3k users folder, had him re-synced, and all appeared ok yesterday. But today, these files are back again and sync now fails completely.
Has anyone any ideas what to try now?
Thanks in advance.

I was hoping to be able to change the default icon for "My Videos" folder. I have renamed it to "Downloads" to use as my download folder. I was hoping to be able to do this without creating a desktop.ini file. I'm hoping it's a registry entry, or failing that, I could change the icon in the dll, but a registry entry would be a lot easier.

Also, the "Recent" folder is never used, and I'd like to hide it from the user\recent list.

I included a picture to make it easier to understand what I'm talking about. I edited out the user name for privacy reasons.

Hi Folks folder Encrypted cannot a folder, - reinstalled, Win2000 now Server decrypt here is the situation - Running Windows SR I recently had to reinstall Windows to a new partition after some recent OS problems The problem now is that I formerly had a directory which I decided to encrypt using Win s new encryption technology From what I understand is that the key used to encrypt the folder Win2000 Server - Encrypted a folder, reinstalled, now cannot decrypt folder is based off my old SID Now that I have reinstalled Win2000 Server - Encrypted a folder, reinstalled, now cannot decrypt folder I am unable to view or delete any of the contents in that folder even with Local Admin access and full ownership I ve checked MS kbase and the only recourse would have been if I have used the backup tool to backup the key Regardless to say I have no backups Now it would be nice if i could recover those encrypted files however I would be happy at this time if I could simply delete the whole folder I can view the filenames of the files but am unable to view delete the files Any suggestions BTW the original WinNT directory has also been deleted nbsp

User came in with a receiving email issue and to make a long story short I found that his inbox and all subfolders including sent, junk ect. are subfolders of the trash folder.(deleted Items) I tried to back up, clean(glary utils) and reinstall but the backup reordered the folders the way they were. I will uninstall again and hand build the folders and subs if need be but I was hoping someone here might know a fix before I spend 2 or more hours creating and moving from imported folders (home based company with 33000+ emails)

Any ideas appreciated.

Also noteworthy is that Norton failed after the hearbleed patch and had to be completely removed and reinstalled. the reinstallation of Norton was AFTER trying to repair Outlook.

I share files on my home network between my desktop PC and my laptop. I often move files between the two computers by placing folders on the desktops and then working with them or moving them to specific folders. The network for my laptop lists its desktop folder, but for the desktop PC, the topline \Users root folder is listed, not the desktop. Network and sharing work just fine. But how do I list the shared PC desktop folder so that I don?t have to drill down through the \Users file structure to reach the desktop folder?

finally I have found the solution for the issue.

1. Turn Off the "System Restore".

Select my computer icon in the desktop and right click then click on properties you will get a window with multiple tabs select the System restore tab and check on the "Turn off system restore".

2. Delete the hidden "SSData" folder in "C:\Windows\System32"

Type the above path in the Run or Windows Explorer, then select it's content or the entire folder and press del key to remove. The above SSData folder will be in hidden.

3. Remove virus startup entries in "MSconfig"

This you must do very careful to avoid problems in loading windows/ other programs

4. Use Symantec Corporate Edition 10.0 to remove viruses

To remove this virus created files in the name of parent folder and virus files you must have the Symantec Corporate Edition 10.0 and above recent versions of Norton products with latest definitions.

I tried to completely rename my pc acct, user profile folder, etc; using this thread:

User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name

It didn't work. The 1st time I booted, W-7 had created a new acct with beginning user settings (taskbar programs, desktop, display, etc). I then reversed the changes and logged off. I rebooted and my original desktop and name appeared.

But, I also found an additional entry in C:\Users: a Temp folder with a padlock icon attached.

An instruction I followed in the rename procedures was to reverse any shared folders in C:Users.

For now, I've abandoned the rename & just want to clean up the damage. What should be done with the Temp folder with a padlock icon?

A:Temp folder with padlock icon in C:\User folder after try PC rename

I would not recommend a full rename as shown however you can go in users and rename your profile there. Since programs could still be using the original folder I would leave that be. If you tried to log into the account and you had not changed the registry correctly then Windows would have created that temporary folder. You can take ownership of it and look inside of it to make sure that you don't have data in there but I suspect that you don't. Provided that there isn't anything in there that is vital and your profile is working correctly then you should be able to remove that folder. Take Ownership of file

I think I found where Thunderbird saves all the emails you write or receive.

C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\1d019ryv.default\Mail\Local Folders

In this folder are files with the names of the folders that the emails are kept in in Thunderbird. The problem is that I can't read most of each file, only the very beginning and very end. The rest is seemingly in code. There are two files with each name. One without an extension, (this is the one I can read a little and is much larger), and the other has an extension of .msf.

Is there a way to read these files?

A:clicking folder opens search window instead of folder

One thought is that your mouse button settings may have somehow changed.

Select "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Category View" > "Appearance and Themes" and in "Appearance and Themes" look for the small window in your upper left hand corner of the window which says"SEE ALSO"

Under that will be four links; "FONTS"
"MOUSE POINTERS"
"HIGH CONTRAST"
"USER ACCOUNT PICTURE"

Select "MOUSE POINTERS"

This will open the "Mouse Pointers Property Dialogue Box" Select the "Buttons Tab"

There you can check to see if somehow your mouse button settings have been changed somehow.

If this doesn't help you the perhaps someone else has an idea.

Hope this helps!

I've created a batch file containing the xcopy command to copy the entire partitioned drive to a folder on an external hard drive. However, when it is executed it works fine but the destination folder, called Backup, becomes a hidden system folder. Does any one know why this is the happening. I'm performing the xcopy on my parents computer, which is on win7.
Code is as follows:

REM This copies the intire H drive (Laptop Parition) to G drive (Segatemega Drive)
xcopy H:\ G:\Backup /D /E /C /R /I /K /Y

A:xcopy - destination folder becomes a hidden system folder - why?

Not my forte but I believe adding the attribute to remove hidden and system would work. Not sure about the syntax, but since you seem to have a handle on it, something like:

attrib -h -s G:\Backup

A:Local C folder and System 32 folder open on boot up

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 cannot unmerge them!

I would like to avoid system restore or adding a new profile if possible.

right clicking and changing the location doesn't work because they are both changed by that approach

The icons appear unique but they are both titled "Downloads" at the moment

I had initially thought to save space on my ssd by having the folders point to an external drive. i then added a 2nd internal drive and decided to return the 2 folders to their original location.
(Both folders where titled E:/ as i had foolishly redirected them both to the same location)
when i right clicked on the downloads folder and changed its default location back to normal, then both folders changed. all my downloads and documents are intact, they are just duplicated. both folders have documents and downloads.

i have tried various regedit solutions from this site to no avail.

When trying to add users to a shared folder, on a server, a problem occurs in that instead of showing the user name in the security tab of the folder we get the SID (S-1-5-21-####). This happens for all users we try to add. And for users in the same and different domains. We can sign on to the users PC/servers and the server with the shared folder with no problem . There seems to be no problems with the users PC/server. The user from another domain can see a shared folder, on another server, in the same domain as the server with the problem.
Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

A:Can you keep file dates from changing when moving folder to folder

If you move within folders on the same drive the date and time are preserved. If you move from one drive to another the create date changes.

A google search indicates RoboCopy can do this (or at least I think that's what it was saying).

Hello, I have done a few google searches online to what these xerox folders and ms frontpage folders are doing in my c drive. Was thinking they were harmful. The cause for concern is that I am not allowed to delete them. After reading some of the searches I was confused with all the info and most of those posts were from 5 years ago (ancient history). I am wondering a couple things:

1) Is it possible to delete these folders (I want to because I'm rebellious and have spent enough time on the task to want to see them get demolished) and if so, how? I already tried safe mode and deleting, just comes right back on the reboot.
2) Why are they on my computer and after reading, everyone else's computers?

My old user (Dan) is still there which has all my old information and library structure there but it is not being showed anymore. It is some virus which is loading these new libraries on startup!! Please help me!!!

Having an extra drive with a recent system image + system restore procedure using DVD is the best method for fixing these problems.

Of course these days you need to keep that extra drive unplugged if you really want to keep it safe.

Hi.

I have a boot drive which is 250gb (My C drive). I have Win 7 and some apps on it.
I have installed Steam on my other hard drive. So far most games have been cooperative and install their folders close to Steam!

However, one game in particular (Empire Total War) has installed one of its folders in "C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly".

From experience from my old PC, I know this folder (The Creative Assembly) can grow to close to 20gb in a matter of a year. I don't want that to happen and therefore thought of relocating, moving, or redirecting this folder (The Creative Assembly) to another location.

How do I do that and is that recommended? (I could simply go ahead and do this right now, but I would rather get some expert opinions first before any instabilities in my system).

Thank you.

A:Move a folder within the appdata/roaming folder to another location?

If you attempt to move the folder any programs dependant on that folder would have to know where to look for it, if you do attempt it i would leave the original in situ and copy/paste to new drive then attempt to redirect program if it fails then you still have original

Im not familiar with steam but as long as you can redirect the games save file path to new location if you have that option then i dont see why you cant do it

It seems to happen only when the navigation pane is open on file commands like "open..." and "save as...".

When the dialog opens and I left click a folder opening arrow on the left hand pane, the folder expands but then after half a second or so it jumps back to whatever folder was previously expanded. Both parts of the tree remain expanded but I have to scroll to get to the one I just expanded, which is very annoying.

Has anyone else come across this (sorry - tried a search but couldn't find it)?

Is there a way to change it?

Hello,
I have an application in Excel that sends mail via Outlook. I don't have any problem in sending the emails, but I would like to know if anyone could give me a hint how to, through my VBA-code, move the e-mail that I just sent to a folder of my choice.

Grateful for any help

Bengt

Is there any way that i will be able to select a large group of folders and select their contents to cut to another folder.

Here is the situation

Itunes has messed around with my music and i would like to move it out of it album folder and just put all the tracks into a music folder. How do i do this.

i have herd i may be able to create a registry or something like that to do this job as you can delete folder contents in this way.

I wish to know how to do exactly or similar that is done in attachment 1.

I wish to edit the left Panel Background and so as the folder Background.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. And if possible.. Make the instructions simple. In often cases I get confused.

For folder background, you are to edit

A:How do I revert my Folder Icons back to the Default Folder

Hello zazzysoul, and welcome to Seven Forums.

With so many things that could cause this, the easiest way to possibly fix this would be to do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened.

Hope this helps,

So I was trying to remap my User folders (e.g. Documents, Pictures) to a different drive by changing the location. What I accidentally managed to do is (I think) migrate my Contacts folder with my User folder. Now, when I go into C>Users, instead of my name, I see the actual Contacts folder. When I go into it, it has all my user folders, but I can't rename it and I don't know how to get it back to normal. I was having trouble restoring the contacts folder with the rest of my user folders but I managed to do that. Now I have... two Contacts folders? One is in with the rest of my user folders, the other IS my User folder. Please help me fix this mistake.

A:Replaced User folder with Contacts folder, how to restore?

See if this helps, User Folders - Restore Default Location - Windows 7 Help Forums. I've accidentally messed them up myself by clicking the wrong folder. Restoring defaults fixed it for me. The tricky part is whether to move the contents back or not. I'm think you shouldn't, at least not automatically anyway.

Hi,

I'm new to this sort of thing so I hope I do this right!

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP3.

Recently, I noticed when I tried to move to/copy to from the Explorer window, my folder tree was blank in the little box that pops up. Regardless of whether I use the links to the left of the window or if I go into Edit - Copy To (or Move To), it happens with anything involving the explorer - documents, photos, etc. The only changes made recently was I had made an account on the computer for my kids, then deleted it not long after, without saving their folders (because they never used the account). Any other changes (installing programs, etc) happened after I noticed the blank box. It's not a major issue but it is slightly annoying.

Any ideas? And thank you ahead of time!

Hi,

I was wondering if it's possible when customizing folder icons, that when creating a new folder in the sub-directory that it would copy the icon of the Master folder icon? instead of always having to edit the new folder's icon.

Thanks.

I was doing some organizing (I don't know why, but I don't have "organize" in my bookmarks menu?) and moved one main folder into another folder by mistake, now can't move it back out into the main bookmarks menu.
Have done a search and nothing I can find will work.

This can't be that difficult!

Thanks!
 

A:Firefox, Yahoo: How to move bookmarks folder out of another folder?

Organize favorites is for IE. For Firefox you can restore your bookmarks by clicking on Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, click Show All Bookmarks, click the Import and Backup button, click Restore, click Choose File and then navigate to and select the .json file that was moved. Firefox will place a copy of the .json file (which are your bookmarks) back to the default folder. If you want, you can select a recent backup copy from the drop down list instead of choose file. That would save you a few clicks.

After restoring your bookmarks you can delete the accidentally moved file.

Can you make this a single line, I'd like to run it directly in the registry in shell open. Right now it calls this script but I bet it can be done in one line :)


Code:

set line=%~pnx1

for /f "tokens=1* delims=\" %%a in ("%line%") do (
set rafparent=%raffolder%
