Need JS method to select a directory (not file)

Q: Need JS method to select a directory (not file)

HTML allows a user on the client-side to select a file using the <INPUT type="file" ...> construct.

I'm looking for a similar ability to have the selection of a directory on the client side. My constraints are that the only non-vanilla HTML solutions allowed are javascript.

Anyone have any insight on how to do this?

Thanks!

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.)

I am trying to set up a wifi connection, but I'm having a strange issue. When using WPA/WPA2 enterprise I only have 2 network authentication methods: smart card or PEAP. Im 100% sure I had EAP-TTLS on a different machine using the same OS (win7 professional),

A:What's the best method of restoring select files to a new drive?

First I agree that you need a new (fresh/clean) install. You can try to use the old OS but it will get messy and if the old OS was an OEM version it can't be activated on the new system. Even a full version OS will need to be activated along with installing drivers, etc for the new system. Not a wise idea.

If you are going with a new PC and an SSD for the OS (and select programs), why not just connect the existing hard drive as a second drive in the new PC. You can then copy what data you want to the SSD. You can't copy programs as they must be installed. You can also use the hard drive for OS backups (backup to the hard drive).

Aside from the obvious task of navigating to a registry key that has been altered by way of a .REG file, is there any other way to determine if a custom .reg file was successful in its task? More so, whether or not access may or may not have been denied to a specific registry key?

When you run a batch file, you can look over the results in the command prompt and see which commands were executed successfully or were denied, so I guess that is more what I am wondering is possible with reg files

OK, Access gurus--

Is there a method in Access VBA to invoke a file-browsing dialog box, similar to Excel's GetOpenFilename method? I'm building a database that looks at another database and documents its tables, queries, forms, and the fields associated with each, and I'd like my users to be able to select a database for analysis using the standard Explorer-style interface.

Incidentally, this is one heck of a great web site. Keep it up!

A:Access file-browsing method--is there one?

Sorry, Access does not include such a control.

All is not lost however. If you have some other development program installed on your computer like Visual Basic or Visual C++, or (probably) if you have the development edition of Access you can use a Common Dialog Control which is exactly what you want. Access does not come with the CDC but if you have it on your computer from somewhere else you can use it in Access too under ActiveX Controls.

I have friends that send me files, and I want to send files and Skype & MSN's file transfer method is just WAY too slow. I have a 500 kbs+ connection (U-Verse) and figure this should go faster than 30 Kbs.

Uploading to Internet storage is WAY to slow, and also unreliable. UltraVNC moved stuff pretty quickly, but I can't convince people to open their system to that level of access.

Is there some "best" file transfer system/method/program that everyone else but me knows about ?

Hi and welcome to sevenforums

You can get the driver here Select your operating system HP G60-127NR Notebook PC - HP technical support (Africa - English)

Im not sure if you are 32bit or 64, so you are going to have to pick. when you download the driver there are two types. read the documentation to find out which. they usually either install by double clicking on the exe file, or if they are zipped you unzip them to a folder and go into device manager click on the device, update driver, and point to the folder where you stored the files

Hope this helps

I'm in the process of repair/recovery of my machine (Dell Inspiron 8500 with Windows XP Home, Service Pack 2). I'm following exactly the instructions in: http://attachments.techguy.org/attac...chmentid=62075, but a problem has developed. The "software" file (which is the file that the original blue screen error message says is "corrupt, absent or not writable") will not copy to the new tmp directory to create the backup. My understanding from the article is that this backup file (software.bak) will later be used to restore correct settings for various software applications. Since I can't copy it, it appears that I am screwed, no? Or is there a way out somehow?

Thanks to anyone who's been there and can help...

Never mind, I had it wrong--didn't read the document referred to above carefully enough. The procedure worked like a charm, and the document is very easy to read and entertaining to boot! (pun intended).

The document describes a procedure that closely follows a Microsoft KB document (which I now can't find) but does not contain any warning regarding whether the OS is an OEM (original equipment manufacture) install or not. The Microsoft doc says not to use the procedure on an OEM-installed OS, but I just did it on my Dell, so that warning seems to be incorrect.

Many many thanks for the help provided by this document and this site.

Hmm; Normally any backup software would do this for you.

If you had a secondary copy (say other media to which you did a copy), then this would be a snap.

It sounds as if you only have the original media and you need to recover "whatever is possible".

A:Error copying file or folder; cannot copy img the directory or file cannot be created

This has caught me more than once.

The problem is a limitation on the number of files and folders allowed in the root folder of a FAT16 file system (as for a memory card) of 512. (Note, this number is reduced much further if longer file names than 8 characters are used, as most people will want to).

When transferring the files onto the card, new files will be rejected when you hit this limit.

So keep your files in separate folders, so they are not all in the root folder.

For files and folders in root it might be worth keeping your filenames under 8 characters in length so you can use the full 512 files on root folder.

A:Win 7 Pro file server with network shares - is this method secure?

Hi there,

This is not an optimal solution. What you've done, if I understand your explanation properly is open up access (everyone), then put band-aids over it.

One better approach is to (a). Create groups for each department (b). Create the shares with permissions specific to each group (Accounting users can access the accounting share), then grant specific Allow permissions only to that group for that folder and sub-folders. You could add deny permissions for others, but it simply adds complexity that you don't need.

A good security model starts from a deny-all point and adds allow permissions as required. You are working the other way.. Allow all then deny as required. It may well work, but you risk missing something one day and then someone gets access to something they shouldn't.

It's better to have a user complain that can't access something (that you then fix), than have someone with access to something they shouldn't and they don't tell you about it.

Where possible you should always stay away from Everyone permissions.

Also, full control, unless specifically needed, should only be granted to administrators.

As a general rule of thumb, you open it up only as much as you need to to let the people who should have access gain access.

It may be that the credentials required to access the share are stored in your credential manager (see control panel). Password protected shares are a good thing, as long as you don't have to enter the password every time. Worked in one company that was a little naive in this regard. We had to login to every share every morning because they were so paranoid.

I want to periodically make a backup list of all files and directories on my two hard drives and save them to a text file.

I attempted to do this via this command line entry:

dir /b "C:\My Path" > myFiles.txt
And just FYI to everyone, that will not work without CMD.exe being run as an administrator.

But the problem is that the file list will only save for the files in that ONE directory. If you use "C:" in place of "C:\My Path" it just saves a list of files in the root directory only.

I want a log of the ENTIRE hard drive, and then also another hard drive, too
If there is a software that does this reliably, that would be fine, but if anyone is knowledgeable about how
to do it from the command line, then that would be great too.

Thanks for the help

Hi guys,
I'm a non-professional java developer who needs a way of taking a .txt file and turning it into a bunch of Strings (one String per line) so I can batch rename a bunch of files with filenames taken from the text file line by line; a kind of custom file renamer, but I'm struggling with the classes and methods needed for the first part of the project (ie getting a .txt file and turning each line into a String so I can rename files with it)

Any thoughts would be super appreciated.

I test the program and it works.
Remark : the process ignores empty lines and it may be executed on both Windows and Unix based OS.
Also, you must rename the files in attachment with the .java extension.

I am trying to move a large batch of files from one folder to another on a WD "My Book" 500GB external drive and an error message keeps appearing saying the following: [Window title]: "Error moving File or Folder", [Message]: "Cannot move <filename> The directory or file cannot be created."
It seems as though I've reached a limit. Folder 1 had 29438 files in it. I tried moving all of those files into Folder 2 on the same drive (which has plenty of free space). Folder 2 accepted 22516 of those files at which point I received the error message. No further files can be added to Folder 2.

Can anyone help?

A:Cannot move file. The directory or file cannot be created...

From here:
http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/itanswers/4096-file-limit-on-xp/
"Windows XP it self doesn't have a limit on the number of files per folder. It depends on the file system that you are using. The max files and folders per folder are:
FAT16 - 512
FAT32 - 65,534
NTFS - 4,294,967,295

If you use long file names for the files and folders (over 8 characters for the file name and 3 for the extension) then the number of files and folders available per folder will be reduced on the FAT16 and FAT32 file systems.

If you need to put more files and folders in a single folder you'll need to convert the drive to NTFS. "

Not certain if that will help, what format is the drive?

The idea is that I input "D12345" into a textbox in a userform that I have created and the code will search out the file with "D12345" as part of the file name and moves that file to another folder.

Hi there ,

In Windows Explorer (file explorer) in thumbnail view or large icon view , when selecting a file or folder , it is highlighted in a color. This color for me has always been

Thank you

A:The select color in file explorer

From what I found doing Google Searches, the answer is no, at least not easily. You would have to create a new Theme with the color you wanted and that would preclude the use of downloaded themes from Microsoft.

You can change the color for some selections but not what you see in Windows explorer via:

Control Panel, Personalization, Windows Color, Advanced Appearance Settings.
Chose Selected Items from the Item: drop down then pick the color you want.

A:Setting file select window size

Next time it opens small, drag the sides of the window (left, right, top, bottom) to enlarge that window. Then it will most likely open in the size you set it next time.

Another trick is to grab the window by the top frame and bump it against the top of the screen. That will maximize it.

Hello Ripbox,

Since the preview pane is a universal setting for those type of dialogs, a workaround may be to open Notepad, and click on File -> Open, turn off the preview pane, and close Notepad. It should change it for all "Open" type dialogs afterwards as well.

First off, are you using IE8? Or another browser?
If so, I don't think it's much different than IE7 which is done like this

1st, Open Internet Options in IE.
Go to "Security" tab.
Toward bottom, go to custon level and open.
Scroll down and find "Downloads" and
check enable under "Automatic Prompting For File Downloads"
Close browser, and it should be fixed.

Hi all
just a quick question

What's the maximum length of a directory PLUS file name -- the reason I'm asking this is that I've some CD's (a lot BTW) ripped into directories into FLAC format.

Tidying up the music folders I sometimes get a warning -- Name too long to send to the re-cycle bin.

I need to know the max nr of characters so I can select the ripping parameters correctly. If the combined directory / file name is too long then I might have trouble backing up the data (music) too.

I usually use ALBUM name (extracted from GRACENOTE or FREEDB depending on what the ripping program is) as the directory name and a number of parameters added to the track title - including a number for the music tracks with the album name as the directory.

However I can't seem to find anything on Max file name length for NTFS.

Cheers

A:the directory or file can not be created

Is this a compressed folder? The file compression algorithm is different between NTFS and FAT32 drives, so that might explain it.

Otherwise, do you have any permissions set on the folder that might be interfering? Do you already have a folder with the same name on the second drive? Try creating the second folder manually, then go back to the first folder, select all of the contents and choose copy from the edit menu. Then paste the whole lot into the second folder.

Once you have verified that the copy has been successful you can go back and delete all the old files.

Could anyone help me out, when accessing any application or programme from my hard drive I get the following error message "The file or directory c: is corrupt and unreadable. Please run chkdsk utility." I then click to get rid of the error message and the utility works fine. I have run chkdsk several times but it does not shift this error message. Any ideas on how to stop it, many thanks
 

A:the file or directory c: is corrupt

Welcome to TSG....

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or external hard drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable. Doing this will keep the important data safe.

Hello, Newbie here...disaster follows:

HD crashed in my trusty computer. Let's just say I did not have the best of backup system's in action. Ergo, after activating backup I now have many file duplication's and worst of all several directories. Not all the information on or in a particular file is replicated in the same file on a like directory. On the other hand some file's or folder's on one given directory containing info show nada on a like file or folder in another directory. Ideal situation, of course, would be join all like directories, file's, and folder's into one. I ain't new at this stuff but it beats me.
Thanks for any help...

With respect to all.

Recently one of the computers in my office got infected by a number of viruses. I ran Malwarebytes antimalware.
It could remove almost all of them. Before closing it gives 4 entries saying that these files will be deleted after reboot.
The file was 'tmp.tmp' in temp directory. After rebooting the file was still there although MBM states that it has removed
it. For other entries in MBAM log there are entries in HKLM winlogon with usrint.exe name. I removed it by regedit. Still it appears
after scanning with MBM which again shows that it will remove it after rebooting. This goes on and there are still
tmp.tmp in %temp% directory and entries in registery. What should I do to remove tmp.tmp file as well as to remove entries from registry.

I am writing this post from my home and will post the MBAM log from my office tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.

Story, my mum-in-law has a very old computer, she wants pictures and data from it, it had Windows XP, its on a 9.1GB SCSI Ultra2 IBM hard drive, the machine doesn't boot the drive anymore (doesn't detect OS), I have taken it to work (the drive), and found
a Adaptec SCSI 19160 PCI card in our store, plugged it in and drive works fine. 
When accessing the documents and settings directory, 
There is a file called "serrida" this SHOULD be a folder, the user profile, but cannot access it. I have checked the software registry in system32/config and located the profilelist and that says user profile c:\documents and settings\serrida 
Is there a way to change the file back to the userprofile, or even access the data from inside the profile?

Hello All,

The Instant Search feature in mu outlook 2007 has stopped working a month or two ago. I have tried to go into the Search Options menu and select the Personal Folders checkbox, but after I check and press OK I get an error message saying "a problem was encountered while trying to change which data files to index. Some of these changes may not have been saved." And sure enough, the selection does not take effect. Also, when I select Indexing Status, I get a message that indexing may be incomplete because files are being indexed, and it shows tens of thousands of files, all different each time I check, but always a huge amount. It never seems to be complete. So, if I cannot select the Personal Folders file to add to Instant Search and it is not checked-off, then what the hell is it indexing? Pls help...

How do I select multiple files with the same file extension in vista?

In XP I used a utility called Better Select and this worked nicely. eg: right click on a .jpg file in a folder containing assorted file extensions, and then choose Better select from the context menu. This would select all files with .jpg extension in that folder. Unfortunately Better Select no longer appears in the context menu since I moved to Vista Home Premium. It seems to have a valid registry entry however.
 

A:select multiple files with the same file extension in vista

One can sort the Windows Explorer listing by file type.
You just need to be in the "Details" mode, and then you can select the first one, and then scroll to the bottom, and then "Shift and Click" and all will be selected.

One annoyance that I've found in Vista is that unlike all previous Windows versions that I've used, when I get a file selection menu, such as for opening a file within an application or 'save as...', if the list is a multicolumn one, as is usually the case, the ordering of the files is NOT vertical as it always had been before, but is horizontal.

Although I can see a logic in this, the fact is that when I'm faced with columns, my eye naturally reads down each column, and therefore I need the vertical sort arrangement as had always previously been the case.

Please, therefore, does anyone know of a fix for this, so that I can restore vertical sort arrangement in those lists? Many thanks.

Kind regards,

On a Windows 7 machine I am having an issue where you go, for example, to Outlook 2010 and in a new e-mai message choose to 'Attach File' and when the Insert File menu pops up where you can choose your document everything is blank. In the left pane you can still choose 'Desktop', or wherever your file is located, but in the right pane it's just empty even though there are documents there. 'All Files' is chosen and this happens in other applications too (not just Outlook)where an attachment can be added. I've logged on with another account and it doesn't have the same problem.

But if you navigate to where the file is located, even if you can't see it, you can still type the filename and it uploads. I tried rebooting the system and this didn't help.

Hi there

Linux and Android have no problem so serving the music to my remote devices isn't a problem (I think also most smart TV's and Chromecast type devices have some sort of built in Linux / Android OS).

Windows computers will also play the music served but file names are truncated hideously to something unrecognizable in most cases.

The fix for long file names that was supposed to appear in this build (1607) doesn't work.

Hi.

I have been having a virus problem for the past week, and I ran many programs to fix it, according to postings on this site.

One thing I'm working on now, is deleting an infected file.
I get the error:

The file or directory is corrupted or unreadable.

The file name is C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\UACrhxfhbrrsb.sys

chkdsk doesn't fix it, because it has problems fixing files with a mix of UPPER and lower case in the file name.

I tried "unlocker", but doesn't work.

If you could help me delete that file, that would be great.
Thank you.

when performing a standard backup of my computer from windows 7, it failed twice*.
now, even after restart, my computer cannot access the new drive, neither from windows explorer nor cmd prompt...both say "E:\ is not accessible the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable". also, under disk management screen it now indicates the file system as RAW and 100% empty (although the status indicates healthy).

my question is, is the hardware damaged? or will reformatting be sufficient.
I am not concerned about any data recovery...just whether or not I must return the harddrive for a new one.

thanks

Hi,

In Disk Management, do you see the option to "Initialise Disk" when clicking on the USB drive? Do that, and the disk should no longer show as RAW, and be usuable.

Once you have that, let bus know and we can recommend some tests to check the USB drive out further.

Since you're able to use TechNet, I assume you are experienced. There could be a problem with how Windows is using the ShellExecuteEx command if you are able to access the files on another PC. Have you tried doing a system restore to when your PC worked normally? There is little information on the 1392 error code.

A:Error:The directory or file cannot be created.?

jared hawe

I think there is a limit to the number of files you can copy to the root. You can only have so many that are not in folders

Try this and see if it works
Make some folders on your desktop name them what you want. E.g. ?Pictures 1?, ?Pictures 2? etc

Then "move" or "cut" not copy all the photos from the card into the folders on the desktop.

Once all the photos are in the folders on the desktop, cut the folders off the desktop and paste back onto the card.

Files in a folder count as 1 file in the Root directory even if it has many files.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good utility or application I could use to scan an NT server for a listing of Folder and File permissions for an NTFS file system? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Windows NT File/Directory Permissions

I found 2 command line utilities in the NT 4.0 Resource Kit. They are SHOWACLS.EXE & SRVCHECK.EXE. Unfortunately SHOWACLS lists the permissions for every single file and directory on the specified server. This creates a large document with more info than I need. SRVCHECK is supposed to scan only Shared folders, but keeps returning back with an "Unknown Error: 203", which MS doesn't seem to have a fix for. Are there any 3rd party utils or options in the Resource kit I may have missed that will scan all shares(even hidden), and give me back a listing of permissions?

I attached my xp drive as a slave to my 2000 pro drive and booted. It checked my xp drive and then started to truncate everything. I now cannot reboot my xp drive. I tried using xp cd to repair but it says I can't due to error on partition, drive full etc. I have tried my friends partition software but it finds no errors. When I use his xp drive to see my xp drive, it says it is unreadable. Is there something out there to repair my truncated files? Is this fixable or is formating my only option. I am desperate to retain my xp drive data. Using parition magic 8, it shows my xp drive as a type 07 and my 2000 as a FAT drive. I have spend days searching for answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:File or directory corrupted and unreadable

Iīve got a very similar problem and ask for help.

I was clonning a hard drive using GHOST, but I realized that I picked the wrong HD, so I turned the PC off inmediately when the process was at 35%.

Then I connected the HD as slave into another laptop.
Windows XP see the slave disk but canīt access the data (data I hope still be in my HD).
"the file or directory is corrupted ad unreadable" appears.
I went to Computer Management :
In the primary disk appears NTFS, in the slave appears nothing.

I returned the HD to my first laptop, and booted from a Win98 floppy disk and run (in DOS) "A:>fdisk /mbr".
After a few seconds, A:> appeared again, so, with no message visible, I turn my laptop off.

And again I went to my second laptop and connected my HD as slave but nothing new happened.
I donīt think all the data is lost but probably the NTFS partition went crazy. I canīt do chkdsk too.

Please, help me!

I am trying to get rid of my large files to save space and I came across a text file that is 4 gigs large. It is called n_akloph.txt can I safely remove this. It seems awefull big for a text file doesn't it?
 

A:Can I delete this file under the windows directory.

Just to be on the safe side leave it alone for a bit and run a HijackThis as shown and let one of our HJT experts diagnose the system.

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.

A:Unable to obtain name of file in directory

Is that Visual Basic? Just assign the file name to the variable when you open the file, or are you not able to find the file name?
