I'm having problems with some of the files not opening. Also, I get a message that tells me that some of my file names are too long, which prevents me from moving files into a different folder. Help!

If you have a FAT partition, you might need to backup the data to an NTFS partition which allow longer file names and paths.See if you can reduce the folder paths. You might need to shorten the path, cut the folder you want, and paste it to the root of C or D, whatever your drive letter is.

NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

I have just puchussed sims 2 for pc and was not told it wont play on windows vista, it keeps telling me i can download a program to play it. Not sure which 1.


When I tried to install The Sims 2 on my pc while using Windows Vista I had a problem. When the installation reached 1% a message appeared saying: "A problem occured when trying to transfer the file 'F:/Support/es/Leeme.txt' from the media. Do you want to retry to copy the file,or cancel the installation?" and the installation couldn't go on because you had only 2 choices, retry or cancel. The problem actually is with the name of the file. In the cd/dvd the file has the name 'Leã©me.txt' but in the installation the file has the name 'Leeme.txt'. What you really have to do is:
1.Open 'My Computer'
2.Right-click on the cd/dvd drive with the game in it and hit Open
3.Copy all the files of the game 4.Go to desktop, right-click and hit New<Folder.Rename the folder Disk 1
5.Paste the files of the game inside the folder
6.Go to Support<es and rename the file 'Leã©me' into 'Leeme'
7.Go to Support<sv and rename the file 'lã¤smig' into 'lasmig'
8.Remove the cd/dvd from the drive
9.Start the installation from Disk 1<AutoRun.exe
The installation should now work properly until the end.
But when you try to run the game a message will appear saying 'This program has known compatibility issues'. Click check for solutions online and then follow the link that appears.This link provides you with a patch for the game!
Hope this information was helpful! Enjoy! icon_biggrin.gif

While adobe photoshop 7.0 installation, error115 coming.please tell me solustion


Your error message will have a file name with it, below is an example of the error.

Media Name:Data
Component:TypeSpt\CommonCMap
File Group:Reqrd Common CMap
File:C:\Program Files\Adobe\Fonts\Reqrd\Base\pfm\COBO__.PFM

The file COBO_.PFM is the file causing the issue in this case. Check the file name in your error message. Goto the location mentioned in your error and cut and paste the file on your documents folder.

E.g. "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Fonts\Reqrd\Base\pfm\" as in this error.

Try reinstalling the Photoshop.

Dear Expert I am using Windows Vista TM Home Premium at my Notebook Pc( HP Pavilion dv-5) with Microsoft office 2007 since last 01 year. My excel files are not opening and I am receiving following message...


maybe you relocated the file itself, check first if the file you are opening is still in its original location on your hard drive, if not, manually open it by double clicking, do not open it inside microsoft excel.

The connection to the company file has been lost Quickbooks must close immediately. Any unsaved data will need to be re-entered. My Company file is damaged and i have tried opening it on the another...


You will need to verify and rebuild your data file. Please follow the steps i provided, this will guide you threw the process.

Verify your data:

1. Close and reopen QuickBooks to create a new Qbwin.log file.
2. Choose Window > Close All, so that no company files or QuickBooks windows are open.
3. Choose File > Utilities > Verify Data.
* If you see QuickBooks detected no problems with your data, your data is clean. Click OK.
* If you see Your data has lost integrity, your data file is damaged. Run the Rebuild Data utility to repair the damage. You may need to run Rebuild two or more times to repair all of the damage. Rerun the Verify Data utility after each rebuild to verify that the errors have been corrected.
* If your see A data problem prevents QuickBooks from continuing, then your data file has a structural problem. Run the Rebuild Data utility to repair the damage.

Rebuild your data:

Important: If the company file is on a network drive, copy the file to a local computer before attempting to run this utility. Be prepared for this computer to be unavailable for several hours running the Rebuild utility. Never rebuild or update a company data file that is located on a remote drive (for example, by accessing it over your network).

If you can't open QuickBooks to run the Rebuild Data utility refer to QuickBooks does not open.

If you're unable to open your company file when double-clicking your QuickBooks desktop icon, see Opening QuickBooks when troubleshooting.

To rebuild the file:

1. Choose Window > Close All.
2. Choose File > Utilities > Rebuild Data.
3. Click OK to the warning message requiring a backup of the company file before starting the rebuild.

Important: Do not replace your current backup. Intuit recommends using a newly formatted external media source for this backup (such as a CD or DVD). If necessary, back up to your local hard drive.
If a message appears asking if you want to replace the backup file, click No.
To avoid overwriting the current file, enter a new name in the Filename field.

4. At the bottom of the QuickBooks Backup window, click OK.

Important: If the backup process fails, at the Rebuild prompt, click Cancel.
Do not continue the Rebuild process with your original company file if the back up process does not complete successfully. This can lead to permanent data loss.
You must make a copy of the company file and attempt the Rebuild process again using the copy of the company file.
Rename the copy of the company file with a unique name to avoid confusion with the original file.

5. The Rebuild Data utility starts as soon as the backup process completes. Click OK to the Rebuild has completed message.
6. Close the company file, and then reopen it to refresh the lists in the file:
1. Choose File > Close Company.
2. Open the company file:
* QuickBooks 2008 and 2007: Choose File > Open or Restore Company. Then select Open a company file and click Next.
* QuickBooks 2006: Choose File > Open Company.
7. Click the company file, and click Open.
8. Run the Verify Data utility.

Icon change


It sounds as if you might be altering the file type extension.

A file name is made up of 2 parts - The actual name (the bit before the . ) and the file type extension (the 3 or 4 letters after the . )

By default, the file type extensions are normally hidden (as this prevents problems), but it is possible to get XP to show them by the following method:

Open 'My Documents' folder. Click Tools>Folder Options>View. Scroll down the lsit and uncheck 'hide extensions for known file types' Click Ok.

If you have got the file extensions showing and you were to change or delete one the icon will change. The file type extension basically tells the computer what type of file it is, and which program should open it (and shows the appropriate programs icon.)

Ensure your files have the correct extension and the reverse the above steps to 'hide' them.

Hope this helps.
