Missing photos


Did you delete the photos from your computer after they went into Time Machine backup? Time Machine backs up the current version of your computer, so deleting from computer= deleting from backup. Open Time Machine application, skip back to when you might've deleted the photos, try recovering from there.

I accidentally deleted an important file off of my computer a few weeks ago. I've used the system restore option before and it worked fine, but now it's saying that there are errors on my local disc and...


I recommend trying the free "Recuva" software.

Unfortunately, with every passing day, it is less likely that the fire will be recoverable, especially if you ran a system restore. Once a file is deleted, the space where it was may be re-used by other files. The longer you wait, the higher the risk.

Clean old files out of a computer


go to "my computer" and click on the drive (usually "C") and click on explore. the drive storage files will open so that you can choose which ones you want to delete. You can delete one file at a time or hold down the CNTRL Key and keep selecting files but don't try to do too many at once, maybe 10 or 15 at a time, just hit the delete key and they will be gone, realize that once they are gone they are actually in the recycle bin and can be recovered. You will not get your space back until you actually go into the recycle bin and delete the files that are there but once you do this,its final and your files are gone forever (well not exactly, but it would be difficult to get them back).
if you have a drive besides the "C" drive that you want to deltet files on, you can go to the drive and choose "select all files" and then hit the delete key, these will go to into the recycle bin as well and you'll have to detlet them there too to actually recover all your space. Be advised that some files are so large that when you hit the delete key the file won't go to the recycle bin but a diaglog box will open asking you if you want to delete the file.

I have deleted all visible files on my clipper - but it keeps playing 5 or 6 files which I can't delete or even see as being on the clipper. I've tried looking for hidden files but there don't seem to be...

The link below walks you through showing all hidden files and folders. Be sure you also uncheck hide system files as well.

Note the hidden files may be some of the players operating system files. So once you can see them you will want to make sure that they are not the operating system files before you delete them. If you do delete the operating system files this will cause the player not to work properly.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Want to recover deleted photo files on my computer


Have you saved anything new on this computer drive since then?
After deleting something off from a computer drive, the deleted files are not erased completely. But, they could be also overwritten by any new file on the same drive and gone forever. Therefore, I hope you've not overwritten them all yet!
As to data recovery software, in fact, there are many data recovery freeware online that could work much more efficiently than some paid ones. Why not to have a try?
Try to restore these deleted photos back from your computer with the help of a data recovery freeware:

In the future, I hope you could back up everything important all the time.

Cant Unistall Quick Time


In some cases, when removing a program it leaves behind certain files, you need to go into the C drive under programs and delete the file manually, or it may also leave a few threads in the registry, to get rid of them you can go to filhippo.com and download CClaener. CCleaner is a very useful program that cleans up various unused and unneeded items in your computer, helping it to run smother and faster. Recap, download and run CCleaner (both regular run and registry), then check the C drive for any Quick time leftovers, then run a search from the start menu (keyword Quick time). If the search finds anything write down the path as to where they are and manually delete them. If the search doesn't find anything, then install the newer Quick time. For future reference, when updating Quick time, you don't need to remove the old, the update or newer version will do this for you in the download process.
