Hi,

1. Click “Start”, “Run,” and then type cmd. When the command prompt opens type “CD C:\Test” (replace “Test” with the name of the folder you want to hide.)
2. Now type “attrib file +s +h” and replace “file” with the name of the actual file name you would like to hide.
3. Now, go back to C:\Test and look for your file or folder, it’s not there! You cannot find it through simply browsing around, through the command prompt, or even if you click “Show Hidden Files and Folders”.
4. To find the folder and it’s contents again simply go back to the command prompt, type “CD C:\Test” (of course, again replacing “Test” with the name of the folder,) and then type “attrib filename -s -h”. You should now be able to find your file again

You will solve your problem

Thanks

Permanent lock, not recognize drive


Where do you see lock, what said lock ????

These drives are junk.

Shutdown your pc, leave drive plugged in USB but unplug power.

Now restart the PC, then power on the drive.

Go to start, control panel, admin tools, computer mgmt, storage, disk mgmt, now look at the bottom, do you see the drive, if you do RT click and change drive path, use a letter over G.

You will have to wait a few mins to check for the drive, after the light starts to flash and stops, like I said, these drives are a pain. Unless when it stops windows see's it, then you should be ok.


Now to to the western digital website and download and burn the tools program.

Run a test on the drive. If the PC doesn't see it do this also and have tools check the drive.

If WD tools doesn't see the drive, check the warranty, if you need what is on the drive you will need a recover program.

Optical Drive Device Locked Acer e lock activated. I cannot use my Cd drive.


Acer eLock Management
Acer eLock Management is a security utility that allows you to lock your removable data, optical and floppy
drives to ensure that data cannot be stolen while your notebook is unattended.

Removable data devices - includes USB disk drives, USB pen drives, USB flash drives, USB MP3 drives,
USB memory card readers, IEEE 1394 disk drives and any other removable disk drives that can be
mounted as a file system when plugged into the system.

Optical drive devices - includes any kind of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives.
�� Floppy disk drives - 3.5-inch disks only.
�� Interfaces - includes serial ports, parallel port, infrared (IR), and Bluetooth.
To activate Acer eLock Management, a password must be set first. Once set, you can apply locks to any of the
devices. Lock(s) will immediately be set without any reboot necessary, and will remain locked after rebooting,
until unlocked.

You can try this:

You can reset the system to its default settings (all devices unlocked) by removing the password (leave the password fields blank when changing the password).

You also may be able to simply uninstall the e-lock software in add remove programs.

Is there an icon in your system tray that may allow you to disable e-lock?
