Can I change where programs save data?

Q: Can I change where programs save data?

So I'd like to dual boot XP and Vista to take Can change data? programs I save where advantage of DirectX However I would also like to keep full XP functionality and I might also end up adding Ubuntu to the mix but that's not really important I've read that the best way to do something like this is make a separate partition for each operating system and then make one larger one for storing everything The problem I see with this is that programs tend to use the OS partition to save things such as game saves registry data etc Would there be any way to get around something like this and retain access Can I change where programs save data? to programs between both OSes I doubt that simply changing the installation directory would help much Programs I'd like to run between both XP and Vista include games such as Crysis everyday apps such as Microsoft Office and Daemon Tools and modification apps such as RivaTuner I also want to run things like NOD and WindowBlinds which I think would have problems unless I installed them separately within each OS Is this at all possible to do If anyone could give me any information I'd greatly appreciate it Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Can I change where programs save data?

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: Can I change where programs save data?

Most of the programs you have listed there would require specific Registry entries, so would need to be installed on each Operating system.

If you do want to install multiple Operating Systems, then partitioning will work just as well as adding a ne whard drive. Be sure to check the file structure you're using (FAT32/NTFS etc) as they are not always compatible if you want to vie wfiles from both linux and Windows.

As far as your games go, you could probably save your games on a common partition - but the option will be within the game itself, so every game will be different.

Hi everyone, my software(data acquisition software) works well and saves data in the folder with full control permissions, but when I try to save my data in the restricted folder(only delete permission is denied) it displays an error access denied.
Is there any workaround to disable the delete option and keeping the normal functioning of software intact, as my intention is to allow the users to generate the data and restricting them from deleting the generated data
Thanks in advance

I am a beginner with tablets and networking. This should be an easy answer.

I have a new tablet. TCL 9020A Android ver 5.0. This is thru At&t network LTE cellular data. My question is, can I use wifi to save on data usage? I have this tablet and Galaxy S5 that both have mobile hotspots available.

Do hotspots use more data? Is there an app available to reduce data usage while on the internet?
Is there any way to get cheaper wifi than paying for tons of data use?

I downloaded the TSG sysinfo utility but my at&t Trek HD would not let me open it. Please advise.

I love this site. I have learned a lot. Thank you.

Yes, if you use your own WiFi network or free WiFi hotspots, you won't be using your cellular data. You can connect to those in your wireless network settings.

For the past couple months, every time I boot up "AMD Data Change...Update New Data to DMI" appears on the boot up screen and doesn't do anything from there. The only way I can start my comp is to go into the bios menu and back out.

Hi there,

Here is what I want to do with my current excel file:
Click Save button to save all required data to another sheet
The number highlighted in reed need to be auto increment (+1) each time save button is click
Then the file will save as a new excel file with the form number (SRF-ABC-1001-14.xls)
And clear the current form and exit excel

Please refer my attached file for the sample what I want to do.

Please note the number highlighted in red should be auto increment number, once click save button, the file will automatic save as a new excel with the Form name.

Thank you so much for your help and time reading this.

This message is telling you that your system drivers are out of date. If you can get into your system download DriverMax and update your drivers and you will not have that problem. I had this problem and was eventually able to access my system by turning off and on several times. After updating my system drivers the problem went away.
 

A:AMD Data change, update new data to DMI

Sounds more like an advertisement for DriverMax to me???

AMD Data Change is displayed by the BIOS, generally the BIOS has no knowledge of drivers. I doubt updating any driver, especially for those who do not have any O/S loaded yet, will do much for them. This is a BIOS or hardware configuration error.

try using the basic defaults with any auto-overclocking and core unlocking turned off for starters, leave out on the boot any devices with flash memory. run a memory diagnostic app eg: memtest, windows memory test. if a memory cell on the stick fails or doesnt sync correctly it can be read sometimes as a hardware change. its also worth reading the bios update notes to see if any of the fixes/new additions apply to any of your hardwear.

A:What is the best way to save my data?

You don't want to use DVDs for backups. They will ne unmangeable and it will be expensive in the long run. Use an external disk of 500GB or more.

The system you should image - I do that 2 or 3 times per week. Data belongs on a seperate data partition. There you have several options. Imaging is one, but sync is faster. The frequency depends on the rythm of change.

So I go into drive management and I was look for it when I found it it says I must initialize the drive before windows will recognize it. The problem is I am trying to save the data and I am sure this will format over it.

Any suggestions on how I can get to this data. According to my friend the drive as fine before he just got a new computer a couple of yrs ago and pulled out his drive to keep it and get to the data sometime later. Well later has come and I am trying to get to that data?
 

A:Trying to save data from Old HD

Hello

Is that an enclosure External HDD you use? That suppose to work well at any variants of Windows operating system in order to retrieve those files.

Make sure the cables are not malfunction in order to access the old HDD. Try on other computers if you can access it.

For some reason my hDD on a USB 3.0 hub's partition info is now RAW and when I plug in the drive windows says I need to format it.
Ive ran the program Active Partition Recovery and the file systems are RAW, within the "tree" of the program I CAN navigate through the folders and find all my data - I just cant save it using that program. So the data is still there I just need an easy program to get it. Ive tried Easus to get it but fails. I believe there's a CRC error on the drive but cant check it with CHKDSK as "the drive is not recognised".
Any help?

Hello again, everyone:

Question: How do I save data files to a blank CD? Second question, if the blank CD holds 700mg. can I continue adding files to it (at different times) until the blank CD is filled to capacity?

I asked this question a couple of days ago, but I only got one reply, but it did not answer the question I am trying to find out "How do I save data-files to a blank CD. Anyone out there who can help, I sure would appreciate it if you can give me some specific info on how to do it. Also, would appreciate it if you can answer question #2 (above).

My guess is that the pages you're saving are getting some, or all of their graphics from another site. When that's the case, that graphic will be replaced with a red x when you save the page.

hi all,

have a new HD on which I will install win7 home prem full version. The previous HD with vista and programs and data will become a 2nd HD on which I want to save data.
should I reformat that 2nd HD to clean it off or keep vista on it? Also how will I tell win7 to save data on the 2nd HD instead of the first HD? link to tutorials? search didnt find anything specific tho I might not have used the rights search terms.

From what I read I unplug the current HD, install new HD, boot to that n install win7.
the vista HD will show up as the 2nd HD...yes?

thanks,

Msongs

A:win7 on new HD and save data to 2nd HD?

Yeah, I'd unplug the existing drive and then boot from the Win 7 install disc.

You tell Win 7 to save data on a particular drive by choosing that drive when you save a file.

Have you considered dividing your new disc into C for Win 7 and D for data, and then using the old drive as a backup disc for data?

Eventually, reformat the Vista disc, but you don't have to until you decide everything is cool with Windows 7.

Hello,

My Inspiron 5150( Windows XP) laptop Hard drive stop functioning and what I would like to do is transfer the data to my HP desktop(Windows 7). I read somewhere that if I buy an 2.5" USB Hard Drive Enclosure and a software to get the data back, that would do the trick. Please advice me as to the best way to go about this. I am not an expert on computers but can follow instructions.

Thank You
 

A:Corrupt HD need to save data

an 2.5" USB Hard Drive Enclosure and a software to get the data back, Click to expand...

you dont need software - should just be able to attach the Now USB drive to a PC and access like an external drive - you may have some access denied issues

BUT

you could try
UBUNTU
It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get data off.

If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD
goto http://www.ubuntu.com/ and download the ISO http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

YOu can also run from a USB device now - if the Machine supports booting off a USB Stick
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

full details are here http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

click on the image "download ubuntu"
Select a location
then begin download
Save the file onto your PC &#8211; remember where you saved it &#8211; so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.

You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD
The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO
If not - use this free program http://www.imgburn.com/

When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see the following options
1) Try ubunto without any change to your computer
2) Install ubuntu
3) Check CD for defects
4) Test memory
5) Boot from first hard disk.

Use OPTION 1 "Try ubunto without any change to your computer" ONLY this option this will run from the CD and not install onto your harddrive - be careful, if you do install onto the PC - you will wipe the data and software OFF your hard drive.., so repeat only use option 1

Now you should see a UBUNTU desktop
This at least proves the main parts of the PC are working

You may see your Harddrive on the desktop - if not have in look in the places on the tool bar at the top of the screen.

If you can see your harddrive &#8211; see if you can find the your datafiles &#8211;
XP look in &#8220;documents and settings&#8221; under the user name you had on the PC
Vista/Windows 7 look in &#8220;user&#8221; under the user name you had on the PC

Now if you have a USB flash drive or external harddrive &#8211; you should be able to copy your data from the harddrive onto the USB device

A:Vista will NOT boot - Can I save my data?

Hopefully the drive is only logically corrupt in a few critical areas or the problem lies elsewhere in the system. What you need to do is figure out what panel you need to remove to be able to detatch the drive and then hook it up to another system via USB adapter or directly to a SATA controller if that's the type of drive it is.

Then if eveything is physically ok with the drive you will be able to read and copy the data off for safekeeping.

Hello,

I've got a problem with WD Sync software lately. It was working very well before but these last times it doesn't save some of the files. When I click on file after synchronization it says "WD Sync couldn't save your data". It doesn't save only some of the files (it can be any type of file like text files or image files). There's no logic in what kind of file it wouldn't save. It can be the same file 2 times in a row or it can be a different one.

Do you have an idea of what the problem might be? My WD Sync has been updated to the last version.

Hello,

After resizing my C: partition, I have been unable to boot to win 7. I have tried every fix I could find, but to no avail. "Starting Windows" screen appears, then BSOD. Through Linux, I am able to see that the files and such are still all there, but since I can't fix the partition I'm going to clean (re)install.

What I would like to know, is there a simple way to save my settings, installed programs, drivers, etc. (not just files), to an external hard drive, then import them back into the fresh win 7? So as to save me wasting hours and hours more on this problem?

Thanks in advance!

A:BSOD during start up, can I save data?

EDIT: what I typed below won't help you in your case, but it might help some one else so I'm going to leave it and type a new response.

Some settings you can indeed save. Let me clarify, I don't know of a way to save your windows settings atm but i'll look around. You program setting are a bit easier. Make sure you have explorer set to show hidden files and folders. If you go to C:\Users\[username]\AppData you can fidn where a lot of your programs settings are stored. Copy the folders of the programs you plan to reinstall. Also get the folders from the program files folders in c:\. After the clean install. reinstall the programs and replace the folders with the ones you copied from the old installation. This way you will still have you settings for those programs. For example you will still have your browser history and bookmarks, so you want have to track down each and every website again. It sounds like you were hoping to nit have to reinstall all your programs. With Win98 you could just copy the programs folder for some software, but those days have passed. If you still have the installer on your hard drive for any programs you downloaded you can grab those which will make things a little easier for you. Drivers have files that are installed in a bunch of different places, so they must be installed again. Once again, if you still have the installer or a folder the installer extracted to, you can copy that which saves you the effort of having to hunt down drivers on the internet. Hope this answered some of your questions sufficiently.

Okay so as ridiculous as it sounds I forgot to make a back up, sue me.

But anyway, I have a lot of important data on this USB that I need to save or recover somehow, and I don't want to just format it and try to recover it that way in case I lose it all forever. I have tried several programs that are meant to be able to recover the data, but all have been unable to even detect the drive even though it appears in the Computer folder.

I attached some photos, can someone help me?

Error message displayed when inserting USB:


Properties of the USB:


Error when attempting Chkdsk:

A:USB drive needs formatting? How do I save my data?

Just for information, tell us: What all recovery programs did you run?

From the chkdsk operation you carried out, I see your drive appears RAW.

To confirm please post a screenshot of Windows Disk Management - with your external drive connected.

If it does appear RAW,

Download , install and Run MiniTools Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1. http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html

Run the Partition Recovery Wizard in it, selecting your external drive.

Partition Recovery>Full Disk>Next> Quick Scan>Next

Post the screenshot of the resulting screen.

Does anyone know how I can restrict users to saving data ONLY in the "My documents" folder of WinXP? I am supporting users who seem to LOVE to WORK FROM and then SAVE TO...floppies

Oh, it gets better...once they have taken their half completed project home with them, the School Principal invariable calls me in a panic to "find it" so someone else can finish!

Goal: allow ONLY save to a specific location. If they want to make a backup on floppy or CD, I don't care - I just need to make sure that I can access and back up all their file from one location (on local PC, not server.)
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,
Iam new to this forum as well as excel. I saw a file before that had a button "Save Data" and it will save the data I wish to be saved in another worksheet and it will go down one row automatically for the next set. Somehow i managed to create a excel file with the fileds i need to input. However i am not able to complete it without the macros. Hope some one could complete this and send me the file ( i dont't know even a bit about excel ).

Hi, my other laptop is pretty far gone. I had a virus, worked on removing it and something terribly went wrong(I won't go into details). Now my laptop freezes at the opening 'windows' screen. I also cannot boot using safemode. It gets hung up. The safemode problem existed prior to the windows screen freeze. Anyways, I think that it's too fargone to fix. However, I have a copy of XP that came with my laptop (OEM version) of XP Home and I'm wondering if I can simply upgrade to a retail version of XP Home or XP Professonal and still maintain my data on drive C:? Also, are there any other programs out there that can mimic an operating system, allowing me to copy my data onto an external hard drive. I'm open to pretty much anything at this point... aside from reformating my HDD.

Thanks!

A:Can you upgrade OEM XP with retail XP to save data?

Well...the flaw that I see with your intents...is that any upgrade will possibly include the problems that you currently have. An upgrade is not the same as a clean install, which is one reason why most users who want to upgrade from one O/S to another...are advised to do a clean install when doing the change.

<<Also, are there any other programs out there that can mimic an operating system, allowing me to copy my data onto an external hard drive.>>

Of course, there are...they are called cloning programs and they will copy the partition or drive exactly as it is now. Use Google to view the many that exist. The manner and which they work and details of operation will vary from program to program.

Hi there.
Just now, I've wanted to check the content of my G:\ drive that is my external 320GB. Upon wanting to access it, Windows gave an error. So, I disconnected and reconnected the drive, and now, he refuses to show me the file and absolutely wants to format it like the old floppies. At the moment, I'm doing a CHKDSK on it (CHKDSK G: \F \R).

If in the worst case, if Windows 7 really really doesn't want to read my data on my external 320GB, I would like to recover data from it. There's a lot of stuff I would LOVE to save from there such like sound effects and videos.

Thanks for the help.

Note : the external feeds electricity from USB and is connected on a hub.

A:Wants to save data from my external G:\ from Windows 7

If your MFT is corrupted, the chkdsk may not really help. You may try to repair the MFT from the mirror with TestDisk.
Another option is to try to pull the data with a Linux program - e.g. this one. But sometimes the MFT and the MFT mirror are corrupted. Then it is going to be difficult.

My questions are these.
Since the reinstall, the old Norton backup data is still on the D partition. When I go into the Save and Restore program to Manage Backups, there is nothing there to delete, but the partition shows about 3/4 full and if you open the partition from my computer, it shows folders and data from before my Factory Image install. Can I delete this stuff manually? Should I?
My other question is when I try to do a backup, the only option that pops up is to backup my E partition. I'd really rather back up my C drive. Should I just not use the Save and Restore and leave well enough alone? Important files like photos and music are backed up to an external drive and I have a RAID mirror incase one of my internal HD's fails?

Get a Knoppix CD. It's a live CD that will allow you to boot your computer into Knoppix (a version of Linux) and copy your files where ever you would like, ie: another hard drive, USB storage media, whatever.

In order to boot into Knoppix, make sure that your computer's boot priority has your CD drive ahead of your hard drive. After that, your data should be safe.

A:Laptop Fail to save any data to harddisk

You need to say whether you are new to computers or not and which Windows operating system you have. I remember when we first got a computer many years ago the wife thought that I'd deleted her work. In fact we didn't know whereabouts it was saved and couldn't find our way around. If you are a beginner using Windows 7 try clicking on the Start button and then Documents in the menu that opens to the right. By default that's where things are saved but you can use the Save As option and choose a different location.

Hello

> I need a return for my product to Toshiba?
No, you can?t return your notebook. It?s depending on your country but normally you have only 14 days to return it. After this it?s not possible.

> How can I extract it without lose my Toshiba warrantly? Can I go to an "approved repairer" who can extract my hard drive, copy my data and this without lose my warranty?
If you go to an authorized service provider your notebook can repaired for free due warranty. So you don?t have to pay for repair.

But backup your data is not covered by warranty I think. So either you do it yourself or you ask the guys how much it will cost.

Generally speaking if your notebook doesn?t start (no screen) the HDD and Windows installation is not affected so after repair it should be possible to access all your data and Windows should start again.

Hello fellow Windows 7ers,

I have just had this problem recently that has been very frustrating.

Preface this with: I had this OLD password that I had set. During this time I had that password I did use windows' system image utility to backup my old 500GB drive to restore it on a 1TB drive and I did that while I had this password.

Now, when I try to change the password it will not save the change. When I change it, I can logout and it will accept the NEW password, but once I reboot or shut down and it comes back up, it only accepts the OLD password.

Any ideas? Thanks

It sounds like windows is corrupt you may want to try reinstalling it to fix the problem

Can't save a change to first start up drive... I have done this many times in W7 without issue, trying to make USB the first place to look for start up instructions.

It appears that I can get the USB is first place and save changes but USB which is bootable is ignored and when I go back to look at the first start up drive it has changed itself back to original.

To clarify, I reboot the laptop and press F2, to make the USB the first place the OS looks for boot instructions.

Regards,
Michael

You know when you download something and that box comes up and asks you where you want to save? How do you change the destination if you check the little box that says "always save to this location"?

Hi, I finally got to where I can save .rar files from a 'free' file hosting site but since I checked the always do this for this file type box thinking that this might help get things going, I get no real indication that it's working, but more important I want to be able to re-select my download manager to grab a rar file when I'm at a site that isn't such a PIA about giving you a free download, if these guys detect a download manager you get start all over in 12 hours or so. How do I get the Always take this action box unchecked on the Save As dialog box so I can have a choice in the matter again? Lee

So if I save a file to a flash drive and then buy a new OS/PC will the flash drive work  ?

I am having an issue that is not a big deal, but is very irritating to me.

When I open a windows office file from the internet (Word or Powerpoint) and I then I go to save it via "save as", it automatically opens the temp file as the save destination, not the folder I most recently had open, or the folder where I've saved the previous 20 files I've downloaded.

Is there a way to direct the default save file to open not as temp but as what I want it to?

Hey guys, i couldn't find anything remotely close to what i was after, but is there a way to change the icons for Library's and Desktop options in the Open/Save/Save As dialog boxes?? And to get rid of the Recent items as well?

Picture enclosed, explains what i mean.

EDIT: I was thinking possibly something in the Explorerframe.dll that i'd need to edit. Just a thought.

Thanks (:

I know there is a simple answer to this, but I can't find it (quickly anyway) so I'll ask here. When I right click an image in IE on TSG, I only get the option to save it as a bitmap rather than its native format. How do I change that?

Recently I installed a bandwidth metre (ShaPlus)and noticed every time I open, closed and re-opened a page it cost me 100mb or so, so Iv been leaving them open and ATM have 9 tabs open.

I turn the net off occasionally and turn it back on, maybe that reopens all the pages again, but they are not being re-opened so often.

Am I saving data by leaving them open or having a lend of myself?

Well...just where are these files right now?
 
Do you make routine backups of the current system?
 
FWIW:  The CPU is only part...of the system.  Since it seems that you intend to buy a new computer...I changed topic title to reflect such.

Hi:

I was wondering if its possible to make a partition on my hard disk so i can back up my windows xp data on it because i have no windows xp cd and i have an emachines t2682 with a recovery disk...and i really hate to wipe it every time it crashes. Is there a way to create a partition using some kind of partition wizard or something? I would appreciate it if it was free. That would be very helpful.

I'm not having a problem right now, but i would like to do that so i can repair the hard drive and perhaps save everything on my hard disk because i hate to lose my save games, etc.

thanks for replying in advance!

Hi

In Windows 8, how do I save the Login data that is requested during switching from a local to a Microsoft account and vice versa so that Windows 8 will automatically perform these actions?

Thanks

Bye

A:Save the Login data requested during the switch-account

Hello Balubeto,

Since the log in credentials change when you switch, you will not be able to.

An alternative would be to have two separate accounts in Windows 8 with one a local and the other a Microsoft account. This way you could just use "switch user" to sign in to the other instead of switching the account itself.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
