Either download a new copy of Winzip, or grab 7zip (which is freeware).

Google "7zip download" and grab the freeware compression/decompression utility from SourceForge.

It does everything Winzip/RAR etc do, but costs nothing.
It's a great little piece of software.

Can I retrieve info,documents etc. from these old bkf. files on my simpletech 160gb usb 2.0 portable drive


The BKF file is only a reference to allow the XP os to know what program opens which file. It doesn't contain photos or music or documents.

Before i used Vista system, right now i use windows 7, i can not open simpletech 500GB hard drive. why?


If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery program.Tenorshare data recoveryis a professional data recovery program that can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus attack etc.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryprofessional.htm After you recover your data,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.

I have lost Ezonics web cam IV driver CD and unable to find driver on the net unable to find them, kindly help to instal my web cam on my system using win - XP OS EZONICS USB CAMERA, M/N : CAM IV


I have found a link to the driver file for CAM IV. Click here for the download.

The download is a 16 MB zip file. Extract it contents on the desktop. There will be two files: CamIVxp.zip and driver updater. Delete driver updater and extract CamIVxp. Double click on Setup and wait for it to install the drivers. Connect your cam after the install completes.

If you are using Vista, and the setup does not run, try compatibility mode and remember that setup can only be run after the files are extracted and cannot be run from within the zip file.

I have SimpleTech drive that I used Storage Sync to back up C drive. Took drive to work and since all the files are 'bpa' cannot open them. I compare this to a simulation of what I bought the drive for -...


The BPA files are the backed up copies of your data. The simpletech utility backs up your files to compresse file ending in BPA. Any computer running the simpletech restore program can extract the data from these files.

You will simply need to install this software on a spare computer in order to test the backups. Frankly though I would just use windows backup to copy the files/folders you want to the drive raw as this can be read anywhere.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

How to retrive the data after formating harddrive


If you format your system all data will be lost unless you have access to some very expensive software and hardware

You can do a repair function in XP Pro if the OS is flaky ?.

If you want to format the drive becasue the OS is sick take it out and put it in another machine , that way you can extract any data files you may need

Before you format it have you got all of the drivers etc for the motherboard and other peripherals if not you will be in deep doo doo after you hit the format button.

Last but not least have you got the keycode for the OS which was installed on your machine

This is the simplest solution I of......sodeep
