    Hi Setabocle. Is D where I'm supposed to put backups for the backup/recovery thingy? Mine is the opposite from what you said as far as D is empty, C is full. Having done a link thingy to transfer the stuff off my old computer to my new one, maybe everything got put into C because the old one didn't have a D.

    I'm trying to understand the directory tree. Somehow the Documents, Photos, etc that you click on in the start menu in my user account can actually be stored on C or D, but I have many copies of those same folders and don't know which ones the Start menu buttons are accessing. So I don't know which ones I can delete.

    Thanks for your help.

One of those partitions is the recovery artition, you may have accidently moved some files into it D: should be the recovery partition and will usually be almost full. do not touch it, C: is the only one you want to play with. don't worry your computers fine :D

How to properly setup a single hard drive for Windows.


Hello Windows user, setting up Windows on your hard drive is easy, but there is a better way to setup Windows so you will never have problems later, (especially XP users), So before you start setting up Windows, I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2 (or 3) partition, one for the system (usually this is drive C:), one for your data (this is drive D:). Partitioning simply divides your hard drive to several sections, the main advantage is in case your windows system goes bad, or get infected by a virus, you can easily back up your important documents, simply copy all your important files to drive D: (drive D: is not erased if you setup Windows on drive C:)

f08f0b4.gif

for example:
To create a partition, on an XP setup, using a 160GB hard drive, divide your 160GB Hard Drive to 2, Press C to create a partition see picture. 80GB for windows system files and 80GB for data files.

Never setup the entire Windows on drive C: alone. create 2 partition. So before you choose where to setup Windows, there is an option to create another partition, input how much storage space you need for the partition in our example 80GB on a 160 GB drive. then proceed to setup Windows on drive C:. (at this point there are two drives, C: and D:)
v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

On Windows Vista, although the backup is automatic, its much wiser to partion your hard drive.

I want to remove all documents and pictures from my computer /laptop on to my memory stick. Can you tell me how to do this task. thank you.


Two methods Martina.

1) Memory Stick plugged in, go to the document, or photo/s. Right-click on it.
In the fly-out menu list click on Copy, or Send To.
Then left-click on the memory stick drive letter.

[ A: drive is for a Floppy Drive. N/A
No B: drive

C: drive is the Harddrive

D: drive is usually reserved for an optical drive. CD or DVD drive
It also may instead be the backup drive. (Has basic Windows files used to restore the Window operating system)

E: drive; May be for a second optical drive. IF there are two optical drives

The E: drive letter, F: drive letter, G: drive letter, or on up the alphabet, may for the Memory Stick you plugged in.

{I have drive letters C:, D:, E:, F:, G:, H:, I:, J:, and K: in my computer }

How to know? Look in My Computer
(For WinXP operating system.
Computer for Vista, and Win 7}

Look BEFORE you plug the Memory Stick in.

Windows XP: Left-click on Start, then on My Computer
Win Vista, and Win 7: Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Computer.

See what is associated with the different drive letters.

Now plug the Memory Stick in. See which drive letter is associated with it ]

Instead of having to copy over each document, or photo individually, you could put your documents in one folder, and your photos in another folder. Names are your choice.

Then just copy the folder to the Memory Stick.

2) The second method is to go to Windows Explorer (Not Internet Explorer), and drag the document/s, or photo/s over to the file tree, and on top of the corresponding drive letter that matches the Memory Stick.

For additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page is Comment, in blue)

Hi i have installed two different types of windows 7 on my toshiba a200 and both times it will not display properly, i had vista on before that worked fine, thank you p jennings


Hi

You don't say which 2 versions of Windows 7 you're using or why you need 2 versions of Windows 7.

It is very unusual to install the same operating system more than once on a single computer.

Consider posting again or adding a comment to your original question to explain a) why you want 2 operating systems and b) what you hope to achieve by having 2 versions of Windows 7. You will get further advice that might offer you a better way of achieving your objectives.

2 operating systems installed on the same Hard Drive partition can confict with one another.

If you want to install and use 2 operating systems on the same computer, you should install them on separate partitions.

I will assume you have already backed up all important documents, pictures, designs, spreadsheets, favourites, contacts etc., onto an external storage device.

Start your installation again, booting from the DVD and look carefully for Hard Drive Options near the bottom of the Install Screen. Click on this and then you can manually delete, create and resize the partitions on your hard drive. Highlight and delete existing partitions and then enter numeric values to divide the free storage space up into your desired number and size of partitions. Then install your main operating system on C: and the 2nd operating system on any other available drive letter.

You will need to go through 2 installation procedures.

After this, when booting, you will be given the option, selectable with the keyboard up/down arrows, of which operating system you want to boot into.

I hope this helps.

How to make partation in new hard disc using window xp


Hello sir and Windows user, setting up Windows on your hard drive is easy, but there is a better way to setup Windows so you will never have problems later, like back up and searching for flash drives (especially XP users), So before you start setting up Windows, I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2 (or 3) partition, one for the system (usually this is drive C:), one for your data (this is drive D:). Partitioning simply divides your hard drive to several sections, the main advantage is in case your windows system goes bad, or get infected by a virus, you can easily back up your important documents, simply copy all your important files to drive D: (drive D: is not erased if you setup Windows on drive C:)

Hi,
If you had given a password to windows vista on the the failed system. You would not be able to get into you files if they were saved in default folder like Documents >Pictures >music .
You need to use a data recovery sofware to do the job. A local tech would do the same for around 80$.


Thanks
