Empty Documents Folder

Mar 23, 2008

I have a strange problem. My documents folder doesnt show the content, although a lot of content exists. When typing a subfolders name in the addressbar, I can see the contents of this subfolder. Also in the command shell the "dir" command doesnt show me any content of the documents-folder. But I can access subdirectories via "cd subdirectory". The content of the subdirectory can be listed via "dir".

When I select "properties" after right-clicking the documents folder vista shows me the size of the folder and the number of files found. I have already tried the chkdsk...Everything worked fine until today. Has anybody got an idea what could be the reason for this strange behaviour?

Games Folder Is Empty!

Oct 6, 2009

My OS is Vista Home Premium(64 bit). I enjoy playing Solitaire and Chess Titans which are two of the integrated "Games". A problem has occurred. I click "Start" then "Games". The ">Games" window appears, as usual. Solitaire, Hearts, Chess Titans etc etc are shown, as usual. However, when I double click the relevant icon, instead of the game running as usual, I'm getting a new window with "Saved Games" at the top. In the main body of the window appears "Microsoft Games" folder which is empty!! I'm wondering if it's my injudicious use of a "shortcut fixer" tool in a "utility" I've been using recently that's caused this problem. how to get my nice green solitaire game (or chess etc) to show again when I double click the icon

Computer Has Finished Its Start-up Routines The StartUp Folder Was Empty

May 29, 2009

This may be a rather simple question, but... How can I tell when my computer has finished its start-up routines? I used to have IE and OneNote in my StartUp folder. But, my computer seemed to take a long time to start up as compared to when the StartUp folder was empty. Now I just have a text file in it that only has the word "Ready" in it. So, that is when I know that my computer has finished its start-up processes. This is more curiosity than anything else. My computer (Dell Inspiron 1501 running Vista Home Premium) doesn't take that long to start up. I would just like to know when I can start opening apps after I boot up.

Perfect Upgrade From Home Premium To Ultimate, Extract The .iso File Using Winrar To An Empty Folder On The Desktop

Oct 31, 2008

Just finished my upgrade from Home Premium x64 SP1 to Ultimate x64 SP1. I've been lurking here on the forum for a while now and having seen quite a few folks having problems with their upgrades, I thought a post sharing the steps I took, which resulted in a Smooooth and problem free upgrade, might be of interest to some.

In no way am I advocating or recommending ANY of the steps that are shown here (i.e. turning off the firewall, etc.).

First phase:
-Purchase and download the upgrade to my hard drive (shoparhive.com was less costly than digital locker). Since I live 40 miles away from the nearest store, I preferred the digital download.

-Extract the .iso file using winrar to an empty folder on the desktop.
-Performed full system virus scan.
-Performed full system spyware scan.
-Performed full system backup to the removable HP media drive.
-Burn the downloaded iso file to dvd, and the extracted files to another dvd.

Second phase:....................

"Saved On Aol" Mail Folder Empty

May 18, 2008

I am currently using AOL 9.0 and Windows Vista. I had 2 years worth of incoming e-mails stored in my "Saved on AOL" mail folder online. I recently deleted all my temporary files, cookies, and web site browsing history by way of Windows Vista's "Internet Option" section under the "Control Panel" device. For some reason, all of my incoming e-mails stored in my "Saved on AOL" mail folder online were totally wiped out. Is there anyway to get these saved e-mails back?. Why did this happen as saved e-mails online are not supposed to be touched by any offline deleting of temporary files, cookies, and web site browsing history?. My "Saved on AOL" mail folder as well as my "Recently Deleted" folder are both totally empty.

Deleting Old Update Backups

May 9, 2008

I read an article about deleting old Update Backups in XP. The article showed where they were stored. Where are the old Vista Update Backup folders stored? I understand from the article that they take up considerable hard drive space. I don't intend on deleting the most recent but are there any others that should not be deleted?

Filling HD With Backups Failed

Mar 31, 2009

When I got this Vista machine, I started using the backup program. It's easier than copying files to various disks and diskettes.

Problem is probably pretty basic. The backups go week after week 'til they fill my external drive. They create one full backup, then a new subfolder every week 'til I run out of room.

Backup set
Backup File 1
Backup File 2
Backup File 3

I tried deleting "Backup File 1" and the next backup failed.

Incremental Backups What Happens When You Delete A File

Jun 12, 2009

When you do incremental backups, what happens when you delete a file = because you don't want it on your machine and then you do a back up. I assume that file is still within the backupfile and will be reinstalled when and if you do a restore. Is there a simple way of removing files from your backup data so they = will not restore. I am particularily thinking of a lot of shareware, 30 trial stuff that I would want reinstalled..................

Storage Device : Reach My Backups

May 4, 2009

My desktop with WinXP installed seriously crashed. I had backed up all on a Seagate Free Agent storage device. I started using my laptop, with Vista Home Premium installed, for all my computer projects. I had backed these up but when I added the storage device to the laptop it told me I would have to format the drive before I could use it with the laptop. Of course, then all my backups would be lost. How can I get around this in order to install and/or reach my backups from the storage device to the laptop. I thought I'd be able to carry these backups from computer to computer but I find that is not the case.

Deleting Old Backups Creating New Backup

Sep 21, 2008

I have the automatic backup set to run every day at midday, saving to my external hard drive, and this has been working fine (I think as I have never tried to restore anything!). As some of these backups were a few months old I thought I would do a bit of tidying, so I deleted some of the older sets. Todays backup failed. The only way I could get the daily backup to work was to create a new full backup first. So, is there any way of deleting old backups without creating a new full backup first?

Restoring From Backups Not Made On Current System.

Dec 6, 2009

I had to rebuild my workstation. I performed a backup, but not a system recovery. Just want my files. It backed up all my files, but when I try to restore them using the restore client, it only shows a small subset of the files I had under my user directory. However, if I look at the ext. disk I backed them up to, I see hundreds of zip files. If I look into those files, I see all my missing files. How come I cannot see all these files in my restore client? Is there a way to fix this? P.S. I have taken ownership of these files using my new account.

Acronis Backups Burned To DVDs Won't Recognize

Oct 20, 2008

I use Acronis True Image 11 for backing up, all from the bootable CD, I don't have Acronis installed. After creating an image I verify it with Acronis. I also like to burn the image to DVDs and verify them on DVD also. When I burn them to DVDs with Vista, Acronis wont recognize them to verify or restore. If I burn them with Nero Acronis will verify them and can restore them. Any images burned to DVDs would already have been verified while on the HD before burning to DVDs. Any body know what the difference is between burning them with Nero verses Vista in relation to Acronis not recognizing the images burned to DVDs by Vista?

Control Panel Is Empty?

Oct 14, 2006

I did a clean install. (RC1 - Build 5600) At first, everything was working great, then the next day I have nothing in Control Panel. From the Start Menu it says (empty) after attempting to load it for 20-ish seconds. If I click the desktop shortcut, it will load the window frame with no content, then just close after 5 seconds. In Windows Explorer I can expand the Control Panel from the sidebar, and pick from there, but just selecting Control Panel, again doesn't work. I remember this being corrupted .cpl files back in the 3.x days, same thing maybe? I ran System File Checker, didn't fix it (did find corrupted files though, oi vey).
