How do I access app data folder in 8.1. I cant find it. I need to manually remove some folders hiding in there containing, amongst other things, snap do bug.???? I used to check it regularly in 7, but cant find it in 8 and now 8.1. Spy Hunter 4 is finding these things but says deleted then next check they are back again.
My Windows 8 is corrupted on my VAIO Sony Laptop, so I tried to install Ubuntu-12.04.2 to access my data. I didn't get very far, however, because after I selected to boot from 'internal optical drive' and 'enabled' for 'secure boot' in the UEFI, and put the Ubuntu CD in, the screen went black. Now, I can't get it to switch on again at all nor can I get the CD out of the drive. When I press the 'assist' button to boot through UEFI or the power button to boot normally, the power and battery lights illuminate for the amount of time I'm holding either button down but nothing else happens. It's a new laptop - model SVE151G13M - that I bought in Germany very recently but can't get fixed under warranty because I'm currently in South Africa and the warranty is not valid here.
When trying to update to 8.1 through the store, it tells me I need to uninstall the Dell Data Protection Access program first before continuing with the update. I've done that (I removed all parts: Access, Middleware, and Drivers), it's no longer showing up in my Installed programs list, yet when I try and continue the Windows 8.1 update, I get the same message.
I added an SSD and installed windows 8 on it. On my old HD now my E drive are all my documents music etc from before. I can access all folder with the exception of music. I get a message that I don't have permission to access this folder.
I am getting access denied when attempting to get into a folder. Just recently installed Windows8. I had the same issue with win7, but I managed to resolve it. What do I need to do to get around this? I don't remember ever having had a problem with simply getting into one of my own folders.
after uninstalling avast few days ago i was prompted to restart the system. Since then when i booted up a random folder named [e1136dde5b111b6e950b(windows defender files)] came up in program files. I cannot delete it since it's needless , nor' rename it , take ownership or anything. I've provided few screenshots showing it.
Today I decided to reformat my laptop after it started to run slow. I backed up all my important folders onto an external hard drive and copied them back onto my fresh hard drive. Everything was fine until I tried to access one folder that I had shared on my previous account. It said that I did not have permission to access any file, but I cannot give myself permission because I reformatted my computer. I tried to go into the properties and give myself permission but it keeps telling me that I can't do it and I need the owner's permission. Is there anyway I can access these files or did I screw myself by not realizing I needed to give permission before reformatting?
Trying to delete a folder I get "Folder Access Denied" -- need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder. I am the only account on this PC an am Administrator. I click continue and get the same message with "Try Again".
I am having a folder on external usb harddisk of size 27.8GB which contains approximately 555000 jpeg files and 132000 folders.I am unable to see all my files in my folder and if I see the properties of this folder it is showing number of files as 440000 files and 25.6GB and when I tried to delete this folder it is showing number of files as 555000 ofsize 27.8GB.My external usb harddisk of size 1TB is formatted as ntfs of single partition.
How to solve this issue I mean I want to view all files in this folder.
We just purchased a new office computer and it came equipped with windows 8. Everything seemed to set up wonderfully as I connected back up to the server we have here in the office that is running Windows 2008 Server. I set up my printers, I mapped the network drives I needed.
The problem I am having is that the mapped drives seemed to be "read-only." I can view and open all files, but I cannot save or create new folders on the drive. I have not changed anything on the server, as far as user settings or permissions because everything was working smooth on the former computer that ran WinXP.
I have checked the "manage your credentials" to ensure I have the proper Windows Credentials loaded. Below you will see a screen shot of what I keep running into.
I use O&O Disk Image 7.2 to make images of my Windows 8 drive. Occasionally I need to mount an image to access folders and files. One folder I can't access is my user folder. I get the message 'You don't currently have permission to access this folder.' I took ownership of the folder but that didn't work. I get a similar result for the folder "C:WindowsCSC" if you want to see how my user folder behaves.
How can I access my user folder on my mounted image?
I am trying to get my external hard drives setup from a freshly rebooted installed computer. I recently placed an external hard drive with all my back up files on my computer, but this drive is not going to be my main drive. I have two others I will be using as a main hdd and a backup drive that are brand new.
So, the question is, if I were to use a utility like the Windows 8.1 disk management feature to either delete the drive letter or even change it to another one, will that mess up the external hard drive or even lose data? Because until I transfer my files to my backup disk I am afraid of losing my only copy of my files.
Windows network and sharing center says that no Internet access but Internet is working (sort of conditionally ) This is a desktop computer with LAN Connection . only one adapter is shown in network devices. Currently we are in domain environment and behind Microsoft tmg.
When proxy settings are set to auto detect then browsing is not working on internet explorer 10 but it's working flawlessly in Chrome. however manually entering the proxy settings browsing is Internet Explorer works.
I tried browsing by ip address in internet Explorer but no luck. It's only on this one pc.
Windows is updated regularly. Scep 2012 is installed with latest definition and found no issue.
I have tried twice to Reset the windsock and tcp ip stack. Still same result. Uninstalled network card drivers still no luck.
Ip is assigned by DHCP. I manually entered ip settings no luck.
Scan with malware bytes anti malware found three malwares and quarantined but still no luck.
Network cable is tested ok.
Reset internet explorer settings and restart pc but still no luck.
Removed Internet Explorer and restart computer and then installed again and restart and still no luck.
Also tried disabling ipv6 no luck.
Internet Explorer 10 is needed as we have some custom applications that won't work with ie 11.
However when I login with another account (another domain user account) all is ok i.e. browsing in IE with auto detect proxy settings is working and also the network icon is not showing no Internet access.
I'm concerned that I might have disabled a utility using Task Manager's advice for saving memory.
I put in a Data CD and it isn't noticed. (Audio CDs are rocognized as "Audio CD" with no ID info). I went to the Windows troubleshooting page and clicked the "fix it" link and the CD was picked up but the next time I put one in the same thing happened.
After I fixed it I tried several data CDs that worked but the next time I restarted is when the problem returned.
I just bought ARMA 3 and believe it or not, the brand new DVD I received has a corrupt file on it. I brought it from ebay so I would like to try and repair it before sending it back.
I am 100% sure it is the disc as my DVD drive is working fine, every other DVD I put in works flawlessly. Installing the game fails at around 50% and burning the DVD to an ISO also fails at 50%. Other games install/burn fine.
I tried copying the files to my hard drive and found that the damaged file is '107411_depotcache_5.csd' which is about 1GB in size (every other file copies without issues).
My question is, can I somehow repair the corrupt file?
I have three external hard drives, 2 x 750GB USB3 Western Digital, and 1 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black spinner.
All three have identical data on them, right down to the last byte ... both for the size of data itself; and the size of data on disk.
This is true whether they are opened on Windows 8 or Windows 7 machine. Yet when I open all three of them simultaneously on the machine that had Windows 8, but now has Windows 8.1 ... while they all show the size of data, the size of data on disk is different for each one! Despite the fact that all three still show identical data on disk on Windows 7. Or even on Windows 8 if I reinstall it on the machine which 8.1 is installed on.
It is important because having the data on disk the same confirms they are exactly identical.
I bought a program that will transfer data from my old computer (Vista) to my new computer (Windows 8) I plugged them both in. I had the screen on the Vista computer and it seemed to be working in transferring my stuff. I wanted until the lights on the new computer stopped blinking. Then I disconnected the Vista computer and hooked up all my wires from the Vista onto the Windows 8 computer. I can't find any of the data I supposedly transferred. Where would it be?
So now I think I better do the transfer thing again. So I take the old computer and plug it in (without monitor as I only have 1) No power. It's plugged in but the old computer won't go on. Now, I'm panicking... all my data, documents, spread sheets, genealogy are all in the old computer.
Now I do have backups... portable disks.... I see the info (or some of it) on the backup disks but how do I transfer it onto the Windows 8 computer? Theses were backedup from the old Vista computer.
Windows 8 may be good with a tablet or laptop.... My working environment uses desk top...monitors are big and out of reach ...some workers have their 17" monitors under a glass surface top work table, so touch screen input is useless.... so can I use windows 8 with keyboard and mouse only ?
Recently i purchased HP Pavilion 14-b030tu Sleekbook off eBay where the guy told me that the computer was always stuck in automatic repair.
So i ran HP diagnostics on the drive and it came back with the "Short DST failed", i know that when the short dst failed tests means that the hdd is about to die. Currently i have removed the hdd and have connected it to my computer where it still gets recognized as a hard drive.
Because i dont want to spend money buying a USB with the HP recovery image on it:
1) Any way to recover data off a GPT hard drive? Ive tried Active@ File Recovery but it doesn't allow me to do anything except super scan the drive. 2) Where the recovery image is stored in harddrives from HP ultrabooks that run Windows 8?
I have a external HDD, which probably have some viruses. because:
I had virus on my PC, no antivirus could see it and tried quiet a lot, and chose fro the bests,but my PC always froze, im having two HDDS in my computer and if i removed on formatted the first reinstalled windows it was good when i connected the second it started freezing so im 100% sure i had virus.
So started windows safe mode, and backed up some very important files, mainly school documents and projects to external HDD in safe mode,
Now i need some of the files back, what should i do? If i boot up the Linux or BSD and copy here the important files back and then format the hard-drive?
On my new Asus PC I am trying to transfer Docs, Contacts, Pictures, & Music from a flash drive to the Library in File Explorer. I 'Copy' e.g. Documents from the flash drive, & when I right click in the Library on Documents, the box that opens does not show a 'Paste'. I tried to drag the items across but that won't work either. I do not have the same problem on my other notebook.
I got to the office yesterday and the PC, which I left running and working as usually, had in it's screen the common message saying the computer can't boot any device (strange since the computer was running and it's a message hat appears when booting). After trying to reboot it a couple of times, a message saying "...kernel... file is missing... try advance tools..." was shown. I tried to "refresh" the system.
Anyway, The thing is that after refreshing I have lost much more than the apps. The apps I can retrieve, It will take me half a day to retrieve almost all of the software, but doable. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DATA??? I have two drivers on the PC, C: (software) and D: (data), and it looks as if my "D:" driver had been erased or something. I see it but I can't open it (properties say it's empty and before being opened has to be formatted). I don't get it....
