Can't open download files


Either:

1) the original files are corrupt
2) the original files are encrypted
3) the downloaded files are corrupt
4) the downloaded files require being unzipped and you have no "unzipper" installed such as 7 Zip.
5) the downloaded files, if already unzipped, have no program assigned to read their specific format

Just what operating system were the files originally created upon and what software was used to create them? IF you don't know, try the followsing:

Determine their file type (their extension, such as .pdf, .doc, .jpg, etc.. Google "how to open "fill in" files (the file type). Try installing a program that reads that extension. If you already have one, try opening the file with a double click and when it asks for which program to use to open it, then pick the one already installed that your research says will open it.

It seems unlikely all the files would be corrupt. It is more likely that you do not presently have a program that can open that file type. You may have to convert the file type into another type of file for which you have software that can open it. Generally, there is freeware available that can open most file types.

How to view hidden files in Windows


Files can be hidden in Windows for a variety of reasons. Certain system files can be hidden so that a careless user doesn't accidentally delete or modify them. Personal files might be hidden by their creator so that other users can't view them. And malware or spyware programs might install themselves and hide the files to make them harder to find.

But whatever the reason a file is hidden, you can view hidden files if you want to in Windows. To set Windows to show hidden files, open a folder or go into Windows Explorer and under the Tools menu, click Folder Options. Go to the View tab, and under the heading "Hidden files and folders," click the radio button next to "Show hidden files and folders." Then click Apply or OK.

Now, when you view a folder that has a hidden file or subfolder in it, that file or folder will be visible. When you see a hidden file in a Windows folder, it will be listed right along with the rest of the files in that folder, but its icon or thumbnail will appear faded and pixellated. You can open it and access it just like any other file, but it's technically "hidden."

To change a file's attributes so it's not hidden anymore, right click on the file and select Properties. In the General tab, at the bottom, uncheck the box next to "Hidden" and click Apply. Now, when you view the folder where that file resides, it will look the same as the other files. (If you want to make the file hidden again, just go back into its properties and re-check the "Hidden" box and click Apply.)

Copy files even with errors and many more


You might encounter something like "Access Denied", "The file has beentransferred to another location or deleted" or some other errors whilecopying your files.

This is a typical problem to those Windows XP users. So what they do isjust recopy all the files again but they will exclude the one with theerror.

What if you have virus that you are in random folders that can't be moved/copied?
What if your old files that you don't need have random access denied files?
What if and what if?

How to continue copying files and exclude the files with error?
Here's how you do it.

What is xcopy?
Copies files and directory trees.
How to use xcopy?

XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]
[/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]
[/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z] [/B]
[/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]

See the REFERENCE below for the detailed meaning

Step 1.
Click Start then click Run...(Or Simply Press Windows key+R)

Step 2.
type "xcopy [source] [destination]"

Sample 1: (For single File ONLY)
xcopy C:/Windows/System32/userint.exe E:/Backup

Sample 2: (For folder including their sub folders)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S
or
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /E

Sample 3: (For Continue Copying even Error Occurs)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /C

Sample 4: (For allowing copying encrypted files)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /G

Note: You can combine the rules/options that you like.

That's it! you now have a way to copy files that are protected, accessdenied, or even those that are encrypted. Hope This tip helps you. ^^

REFERENCE:

What are the use of the options?

source Specifies the file(s) to copy.

destination Specifies the location and/or name of new files.

/A Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
doesn't change the attribute.

/M Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
turns off the archive attribute.

/D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
If no date is given, copies only those files whose
source time is newer than the destination time.

/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string
should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the
strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For
example, specifying a string like obj or .obj will exclude
all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
.obj extension respectively.

/P Prompts you before creating each destination file.

/S Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones.

/E Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones.
Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.

/V Verifies the size of each new file.

/W Prompts you to press a key before copying.

/C Continues copying even if errors occur.

/I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file,
assumes that destination must be a directory.

/Q Does not display file names while copying.

/F Displays full source and destination file names while copying.

/L Displays files that would be copied.

/G Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does
not support encryption.

/H Copies hidden and system files also.

/R Overwrites read-only files.

/T Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not
include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes
empty directories and subdirectories.

/U Copies only files that already exist in destination.

/K Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-only attributes.

/N Copies using the generated short names.

/O Copies file ownership and ACL information.

/X Copies file audit settings (implies /O).

/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.

/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.

/Z Copies networked files in restartable mode.

/B Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link.

/J Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files.

The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.

CD burning


Is the Temporary file full with .tmp files? If so Windows can not accept the files from the Burner. Also make sure in your Burner Options that you have Checked the Option to Write Files to the Windows Tmp Directory, also check the file path and make sure that is is directing the burner files to the correct area.

How to hide files in a jpg photo


1) Take two files -
one which you want to hide and another will be the jpg image(of any size and dimension)to hide that file

If you want to hide multiple files in one jpeg image, just zip them into one file

2) To make the process easy, Copy the above two files to the C:

3) Now open the command prompt (Go to start, Click "RUN" and type "cmd").

4) get to the root by typing cd\ or you can give the path name where the files are located

5) Now type the following command:

copy /b imagename.jpg + filetohide.ext new_image.jpg

6) Now a new file new_image.jpg will be created

7) Double click on the file and it will open the image which you used to hide the secret file

8) To access the hidden file simply change the extension from jpg to orignal extension of the hidden file,

Example: I took an image filename "myphoto.jpg"
I wanted to hide some important word documents so I zipped all the word files and created a zip file "word.zip"
Then copied both "myphoto.jpg" and "word.zip" to c:
Opened the command prompt
Typed the command: copy /b myphoto.jpg + word.zip new_image.jpg
Now I have a new file "new_image.jpg" in C:
When I double click on the new file it shows me the image of "myphoto.jpg"

If I change the extension of new_image.jpg to new_image.zip I can extract the contents of the .zip file

ENJOY !



ENJOY !
