Default Image Viewer In Windows 8 - History And Cache?

Oct 5, 2013

I want to see a JPG that I viewed some time ago in the default viewer of Windows 8. Do copies of previously viewed pictures still exist in a directory somewhere? If so, how can I find them?

Maintenance :: Increase File History Cache Size Beyond 20%?

Feb 26, 2013

I thought the Win 8 File History backup feature looked like a good idea so I bought a 1TB external hard drive to use solely for backup. I was thinking that I would be able to store a massive history of backups on it but I can only set the size of the offline cache to a maximum of 20%. Why is it limited to such a small amount of space? Why not 80% or 100%? Is there a registry setting to increase this?

It seems to be a strange arbitrary thing to set it to such a small amount of space if you want to use a drive dedicated for the purpose.

Maintenance :: File History Or Backups - Size Of Online Cache

Jul 26, 2013

I am so used to doing a scheduled backup and image of my install once a week but now I see it is file history. I am really not sure how this feature works in relation to the old image and backups. I have partitioned a portable drive of 500GB for my backups and have started doing the file history. I am now looking at the advanced settings and see this

Now as I was not thinking of leaving my portable turned on 24/7 as I used to do a scheduled backup once a week so now I am a bit stuck.

The setting "Size of Online Cache"has also got me confused. I have set it to the max of 20% disk space.

What I was actually thinking of doing is to make my first "backup"of my fresh install of Windows 8 and keep this as a restore backup if I ever want to revert back to this point of my setup. I was then going to use another partition on my portable drive for my weekly backups as I did before.

Setting Default Option For Image Files - Photoshop As Default

Jun 15, 2014

I went to go set photoshop as the default for opening a jpeg, and I noticed this weird option on the list that says %1. I don't know how to get rid of it it is very annoying. I tried cleaning the registry with CCleaner and removing "%1;" from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerFileAssociation. Nothing has worked so far, What is %1 anyway?

Accounts :: Windows 8 Image - Copying / Modifying Default Profile

May 3, 2013

I'm trying to set up a Windows 8 image. I want to edit the default profile so that when a new user signs on, they have the settings that I choose. In Windows 7 Pro, we could log on with a dummy account, edit the profile how we wanted it, then just copy and paste the information into the Default User Profile. With 8, when we do this, it doesn't always work. Most of the time, once it's on the domain, domain users cannot sign in. Or when they do sign in, the Metro tiles don't work. Any good way to edit and set up the default profile?

Windows 8 Refuses To Mount ISOP Image Because Image Is Sparse

Oct 31, 2012

I have problem mounting .iso images in Windows 8 Pro.

The error message I was getting was this:

and in powershell I got this:

Essentially the problem is that windows .iso mounting does not like 'sparse' files. I had used Acronis backup to backup my original .iso files and this DOES use sparse files. You can check if a file is 'sparsed' by looking at the files details in properties. The 'P' in the attributes represents a sparse file. See the screenshot below.

The result? When I restored my .iso images I could no longer mount them.

The simplest solution I have found is to just copy the .iso to a new file - this seems to create the new file without the sparse flag set.

Clearing Data / Cache Upon Opening Browser

May 30, 2014

Is there a way to clear all data, cache... upon opening a browser. I have ccleaner which removes all data so I need to find a way of executing a clean when i press my browser button.

Why I want to do this as i watch alot of catch up and live tv & in my experience it works smoothly if you clear data, cache... before you start the streaming.

I have 2 browsers on my pc. chrome which i only use for non streaming purposes and opera which I use only for video streaming.

Can Control Cache On Start Menu Search

Sep 18, 2013

Make a new file. c:empdork.txt

Add the single word "ishkabibble" and close the file.

Winkey-F, "dork", enter.

No worky. However, after some period of time, the file will be included in the search results. Or at least I'm pretty sure a file started to come up after a few days.

Now, If one were to have made the same new file in My Documents, insta-worky. That directory is included/indexed/cashed/whatever it's called.

Q: Can I add additional working directories I use often (c: emp, c:music, etc.) such that all nested files within will be included in the Winkey-F search results - instantly (or otherwise.)

Perhaps a "path" type environmental variable exists for search - I would imagine.

("Otherwise" - as in perhaps manually refreshing the cache before a search - which is lame, but serves the purpose.)

[I'm thinking Winkey-F isn't the tool.] Is there a grep type function or tool - that is absolutely categorically going to look at an entire drive for a file, regardless of system, hidden, whatever?

What about text search within a file? Using "ishkabibble" how do I find that file we made?

Browsers/Mail :: Why Don't Browser Back Buttons Use The Cache

Oct 29, 2013

I don't get it. I'm on a page. I click a link. I only stay on the new page for maybe 5 seconds. I click the Back Button. I get "connecting" like the word will change in 5 seconds? There's like zero efficiency. I think there should be a setting.

I'm currently on Waterfox 24.0. Pretty nice browser. But it's bizarre that something built for speed makes you wait on every Back Button press.

Setup Installation :: How To Set Up SSD Cache On ASUS VivoBook S551LB

Jan 24, 2014

I just bought an ASUS VivoBook S551LB laptop which comes with Windows 8. It has a 1TB harddrive and an extra 24GB SSD which is used for cache i guess. I wanted to reinstall Windows 8 because I didn't want to use the OEM version. Doing that took enough work. But after reinstalling i decided to check if the cache drive was still working. The Disk Management interface showed that the SSD was empty when previously it was completely full, so I guessed that the cache needed to be set up again.

I installed everything from my laptop's driver page and ran windows update until there were no more updates left. I looked in every ASUS and Intel application installed on the computer for options regarding the cache drive but there was nothing. The Condusiv ExpressCache program had no gui and the command line didn't work, and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology program wasn't showing most of the options which other people have.

I read lots of threads and everything seemed to point to the need for RAID. I tried the registry edits, BIOS options (and with safe boot), and looking for RAID drivers for my laptop. The BIOS only has the option for AHCI, and there are no RAID drivers that I can find for my laptop. I installed different versions of the IRST program, tried deleting the SSD volume, formatting it, etc. The fixes people talk about in other threads don't work for me because my programs, BIOS, etc seem to be missing options. Is RAID my problem?

Here are some pictures of my OS:

Installed programs:
Intel Rapid Storage Technology:

Just rechecked BIOS settings for the 20th time and the only SATA configuration option is AHCI, and there are no extra options in the BIOS regarding either of the Intel IRSTs

Maintenance :: System Image Recovery Can't Find Image On USB Drive

Mar 7, 2013

I've been dual-booting Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate, but a while back my Windows 8 kind of went "South" and wouldn't boot at all (I got an error message that a device was "not attached"). I have a recent system image on an external USB hard drive, but when I boot to "system recovery" using my repair disk it can't seem to find my USB drive at all.

The tutorials here mention installing a SATA driver to access disks that are not recognized, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Where Can Find Windows Explorer In Event Viewer

Jan 1, 2014

I started up my computer and Windows explorer randomly froze up and hung. I didnt do anything to provoke it. I just sat here waiting for my computer to boot up.Then when I thought it was finished I opened firefox. Then Windows explorer just freezes completely. I tried doing windows key + r. It opened the run window but it froze. Then I tried moving my mouse on the right to open up the charm bar, ( I think it's called that) to hit settings and then restart. When I clicked settings the whole bar just closed out and would close out every time.

I right clicked on the task bar to try and open task manager. When I clicked on task manager it wouldn't ever open. So I couldn't even shut down properly. I just pushed the power button. Then I turned it on again and the same exact thing happened.So I shut it off again.

Then I turned it back on and went to msconfig before it froze up and I set it to boot into safe mode.Then I got into safe mode and ran a malware bytes scan and an avast scan. Nothing came up on either so I just went back to normal boot. The problem stopped now but I want to know what caused that whole thing to happen because it hasn't happened to me before.So I want to look at event viewer to see if that'll explain it. Where would I find that at in event viewer?

Can't Open Photos Of Any Kind With Windows Photo Viewer

Jul 23, 2013

This issue it happens for too long I can't open photos of any kind with the windows photo viewer, I don't know how it happened and I don't remember when. When I try to open nothing happens.. its like something happens for a fraction of a second and nothing. I tried almost everything, well, accept for restore but there is no chance I am doing it the cost is too big.

I just noticed that when i try to view a photo file, two processes pop for a fraction of a sec and immediately disappear, one is COM Surrogate and the other Windows Problem Reporting.
