Create new folder

Depending on the operating system, you have to enable file sharing on both machines. Then you have to share the location of those files. So it might be better to put them in the shared documents folder on the original machine so that you can find them easier.

IMac is running slow

This is a 'how long is a piece of string' issue.
One of the most common and unknown speed issues on Macs, is keeping files on the desktop.
The desktop is an active workspace and the Mac will look at everything that is on the desktop on start up and load items into memory. This slows down start up and also reduces the available RAM for running applications.
Move any files on the desktop into your 'Documents' folder or even create a new folder in your 'User' folder and move the items from the desktop into there.
If you need quick access to these files, create an alias of this folder and drag the alias to the desktop.

I have microsoft picture it 7. I can open all my files in all folders except from the desktop location. Everytime I try to open from desktop the program crashes? Does anybody have a solution?

I'll be honest, I've used Picture It! once only, so I'm definitely no expert. There may be some quirk of the program or something else on the desktop that causes this crashing when you access files there. I would suggest you move your files off the desktop into a new folder. This should fix the trouble since you say you can open files in folders without problems. I also recommend this as a way of keeping your pictures organized. And the desktop isn't a great place to store large numbers of individual files, as it can slow down Windows some, as well as making it difficult to find things on the desktop.

I have same problem

The D drive is normally a partition of the C drive rather than a separate drive and is used by many to keep restore files handy for restoration use; system backdating to refresh system files. The D partition, while available and accessible for other purposes is customarily not used for user files and because of the nature of the system installed files, has protection against accidental erasure.
You should be able to copy your photo folders & files intact back to the C (main) partition and regain normal use of them.

LG Shine CU720 restarts randomly

To fix this, I put my SD card into a PC, cut and pasted all the files from the card to the desktop, right clicked on the card in windows explorer, and formatted it (slowly), then put all the files back on the card, and it worked. (except for some duplicate files which I multi-deleted on the phone)

Microsoft Access database

try creating (if you have not already tried) the exact folder tree as [I:\DESKTOPPC\DesktopPC\Database\Toby3]. Now put the file "Tonys_work_be.mdb" into the folder named "Toby3".
