Save All Works And Files In My Documents Folder In Windows Xp OS
Jul 14, 2005
I have a problem with my pc. Can anybody help me? I normally save my all works and files in my documents folder in my windows xp OS. I have a username to log in to my pc.underthis user name I had made my documents private.One day to do some work I logged in to the PC as an administrator.Here I delete my user account and created with same name again. But now I have lost all my documents. I can see it's there in my documents and settings but access denied because of the folder made PRIVATE. Can you help me to get my documents back?
Going to save My Documents to my flash drive but when I right-click on the folder, the send to option is gone. It's there for other files on my desktop. What happened? How can I save my files to the flash drive without it?
I made the change below however, if I click on a folder in the left hand "Folders" pane, it works as before and opens the folder and displayed in the contents in the right hand pane.
However, if I click on any folders in the right hand (files pane) a new windows explorer window opens a displays the "my documents".
The same thing happens if you click on a shortcut to a folder. Instead of the folder opening, it opens a new window and displays "my documents".
This problems started when I added a new function to the folder file folder file type properties to print out the contents of a folder by calling a batch file that piped the content to a file.
In the file association for file folders in the advanced section I now have three functions - the afore mentioned 'create file list' - explore (the default), and - find
For the folder file type I just have: - explore and - open
Any suggestions on how to put things back to the way Windows Explorer always worked before make clicking folders in the right hand pane open them up properly in the same window as per clicking them on the left hand pane?
I do alot of image work so i have alot of images... when i go to save an image in the my pictures folder, it does not show up. so i think, i go into windows explorer to the my pictures folder and only some of them show up.
I had a system crash related to installing xp sp3. The only way I could get the system back up was to reinstall windows. Is there any way to find the files that were in the previous windows installation's 'my documents' folder? I had a few important files lost thru this process, and wondered if there is any possibility of recovering them.
I have a user's My Documents folder redirected to a share on our domain controller. The name of this user's My Documents folder is username's Documents. Whenever I try to change this to My Documents, it immediately reverts back to username's Documents.However, if I open a command window and say dir, I see My Documents which is what I would expect.

my computer is unable to save any files at all. It cannot save files off the internet or save any files in a Save As.. format? Ive searched the internet for the last 2 weeks looking for some infomation on the problem but i cannot find anything?
I have one question. Is it possible to save the order of my music folders (and files!) in My Music folder. What I mean is that I'm going to transfer all of my music (55 GB) on external HDD and then back to freshly installed Windows 7. And what I would like is that my order of folder is sorted as I did it in Win XP, and NOT by alphabetical order or something else. I have really huge collection and organizing it like it is now would be a nightmare. I do not want music to be sorted like: ATB, Coldplay, Linkin Park, Trance; but in my order (like Coldplay, Linkin Park, ATB, Trance). I wonder if thumbs.db hidden file has to do something with order of the icons (I guess not ) So is it possible or not?
In previously highlighted issues regarding backing-up shared documents to my Seagate Freeagent hard drive, I simply decided to move the My Music Folder from the shared documents folder, but Windows is disallowing me from doing this stating that My Music is a Windows system folder & cannot be renamed or removed? Any help please on getting around this to move My Music from the shared documents? I'm running XP with servce pack 3.
I have Windows XP Pro, SP2 and version 8.0 of Works.
Now when I start up the Works word processor and I use the "Open" function, it always opens in "My Documents". When I use "WordPad" it opens in the last folder used. Is there a way to make the Works word processor act like this? If not, is there a way to change the default opening folder? (Also is there a way to change the default location where a file is saved?)
Also, since this is closely related, I'll ask this: When you use the Open function in the Works wp, you get the "Open" dialog box. At the bottom there is a drop down box called, "Files of type". It always opens with "Works Document (*.wps). If you click the drop down box, one of the options is "All Files (*.*). Is there a way to change it to this?
i brought windows XP home SP2 oem and i recently tired to reformat but I broke my cd.... now my friends have windows XP home SP3 & Windows XP Pro could I use theres to install on my pc then and use my cd key or does it have to be the same version?
How can I add a personal folder to appear in "Places Bar" of all Save Dialogs (irrespective of the application) in Windows XP Professional SP3.The personal folder, added, in any Microsoft Office document's "My Places" bar, appears in Save Dialogs of only Microsoft Office documents. But I want a personal folder to appear in ALL Save Dialogs, irrespective of the application.
I have Windows XP Pro SP2 as my OS. When I try to save a document directly from Word onto my DVD I get the message that is read-only. The OS does see the DVD drive because Roxio can burn to the drive. I prefer saving directly to the the drive from Word. What could be the problem?
Just recently I began to get the error message "Documents in this folder are not available. The folder may have been moved, deleted, or network problems may be preventing a connection to the server." every time I try to access one of my web-based folders. These worked before, and just recently stopped working. I am not sure if a security patch I applied did this
New user, first time post here. I've got a problem with Windows XP. So a friend of mine gave me a copy of norton ghost 2003 to try out. Well, it must have been a bad copy because when I tried to run it, the program just hung up and did not start the dos ghost, despite waiting for an hour. I shut off the power to the computer, and then it was stuck in this loop of going to pc-dos whenever I turned on the computer. It would not bypass this despite picking the option to skip ghost and go straight to windows. So, I had a new hard drive to put into the computer (which precipitated this whole ghost business in the first place), and i reloaded windows, which went fine
I had a serious crash with windows xp (SP2) last night that resulted in having to reinstall Windows XP (it wouldn't repair, wouldn't let me partition and wouldn't let me install windows into a different directory - was crashing for anything but a full reinstall). As a result of this, I've lost access to the my documents folder of my original user profile. Moreover, it shows as being 0 bytes in size, except the total size of my HDD has not been reduced.
Is it better to have the MyDocuments folder outside the local C: drive or to use the default MyDocuments folder that is a subfolder to the local C: drive? Why? I have been using a MyDocuments folder that is at the same level as MyComputer in the directory tree, because I was told that there is a limitation to the size of the MyDocuments folder. However, it also was mentioned that the size limitation does not exist with WinXPpro.
I am trying to find a way to change the location where files saved to the My Documents folder on one computer (smaller HD) to a network shared folder on another computer. My thought was to delete or hide the computer's My Documents folder and create a new My Documents folder on the network folder and place a shortcut to it on the the other computers desktop
On MS Windows XP Professional, SP2, is there a way to re-direct My Documents to another location other than the default? In this case, I am using XP Pro not logging into the domain, so I cannot use the GPO in AD.
One thing I haven't figured out yet is why there are so many accesses to My Documents in folder/windows explorer view.For example:I am the only computer user of this operating system. My account name is Hawkfire, this account name is the administer one; there is that account, a unused guest account and an unused .net account.
There are 4 user profiles on my computer, which runs XP Pro. For some reason, the 'My Documents' folder for my own profile no longer appears, but it's contents seem to have migrated into my daughter's 'My Documents' folder.this possibly happened when I had the Beta version of Microsoft Spyware running, as my daughter mentioned some messages coming up to do with changing the path for 'my documents'
