How copy ALL My Documents to removable disk Microsft Works

I don't have the slightest idea how to copy all My Documents to my removable disk. I can copy one at a time but that is going to make me crazy.
I found a removable disk lying around the house -- small, bought at Staples office supply
On the disk I found ''Library XML document 2,489 KB'' on it. I double clicked on that thinking it would help. It started to go to the web but that made me nervous so I stopped that.
What is the XML thing? Is that something someone copied onto the disk or did it come with it and I am supposed to use it?
How do I do a mass copy from My Documents to the removable disk? If you can help I would be very happy.

Okay, assuming you have your removable disk attached to your computer and a drive letter is assigned to it (let's say K: for example) - open up Windows explorer and click on My Documents on the left side - then hit Ctrl-A - you should now see everything in the My Documents folder is now highlighted on the right side - now right click over the highlighted items and choose (left-click) Copy from the popup menu - this will copy EVERYTHING in your My Documents folder -

after the copy completes (could take a while if you have a lot of items) then in Windows Explorer click on the drive letter of the removable drive (K: in my example) - then right click over the area on the right and choose Paste - this will now put all the copied items to the removable drive

A few things to consider
- you didn't specify what kind of documents you're looking to copy so the instructions above will copy EVERYTHING under my documents - this includes My Pictures, My Videos, etc. and any and all folders or files under My Documents
- also this procedure COPIES the files to the removable drive - leaving the original files intact on your hard drive - if you want to MOVE them to the removable drive then choose Cut instead of Copy in the step above

Wd30ezrx -cannot initailing anymore the disk


I haven't the slightest Idea what you're asking for (initailing??) I assume you mean the disk cannot initialize? or cannot load? or cannot boot to windows?

Do I need to purchase the service plan/pak from Gateway in order to buy a recovery disk


Wow, why not just make sure you have access to an Operating System Disc that is the same as your operating system. Then periodically copy your My Documents folder to a USB Flash Drive or to an external drive for backup purposes. Most times those Recovery Discs don't work. The only good recovery that works most times is when the manufacturer burns the partition on the hard drive.

How to format a netbook


Install the Restoration Disk into the optical drive, (DVD drive), and when asked perform a Full Installation. (Destructive Installation)

Or install a fresh new genuine copy of Windows, and perform a Full Installation.

(You may need to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM)

Don't have the Restoration Disk? (Or if you are the first owner did you make one?)
Try contacting Acer Support.

(From reading experiences with others, it would seem you would be better off just buying a new-genuine copy of Windows. Easier to obtain )

Remember, formatting in this mode will remove ALL personal data from the netbook.
No personal documents you have created, or downloaded, no programs you have installed or downloaded, no photos, music, videos, nada, will be saved.
The netbook will go back to the way it was Day 1 from the factory.

  5. After you have selected the computer option, a pop-up appears on your PC informing you that Windows has found new hardware.

How can get rid from Thinkpoint


A "Thinkpoint" is a computer-virus. On a virus-free computer, Google-search for 'remove thinkpoint'
to get some good advice.

Or, follow best practises, which state that you can never remove 100% of a computer virus.

So, disconnect the old disk-drive, and purchase a new disk-drive.
Install Windows onto the new disk-drive.
Install anti-virus software on the new disk-drive.
Connect the old disk-drive as a "slave" device.
Copy all your data files from "old" to "new".
Use the anti-virus software to scan the "old" disk-drive.
Completely "wipe" the old disk-drive, and then use it as a "backup" drive,
e.g., once a day/week/fortnight, copy everything from your 'My Documents' folder to that "old" drive.

I can't remember my password to my laptop.


I'm not sure about the whole password then but here is what I would do.

1. Remove the HDD from the laptop and connect it to your PC or a friends PC. Now the HDD might either be SATA or IDE so just find a adapter that will turn it into USB.

Something like this is perfect! and only $22 and will connect ANY SATA or IDE device to your computer via USB

2. Copy any information you might want to keep such as Documents, Music Files, images, Etc.

3. Reinstall Windows and the problem should be gone.

4. Copy back all the information.

Error message: Can not scan. Not enough space on target disk


I have just cured this"not enough space on the target disc" on my set up.I had the problem from day one after buying scanner but learned to get around it.Today I went into Toolbox and opened settings and made a note of the target address. Then checked properties of the target folder and found there was 86mb in a space for 80mb.This was the default setting chosen by the installation programme. I went to my documents and made a new folder and called it Canoscan, clicked ok and it became the new target and the fault is gone. Hope it works for others.

I have run out of space on c drive


Copy my documents to an external hard drive then delete pictures, music, video and documents to free up space. Also go to add remove programs in control panel and see if you can uninstall some programs you don't use. After that run a disk cleanup and then defragmentation. Let me know if this helps.
thanks,
Henry

Need systems restore disk for Gateway


Hi,

I'm not sure if you hope to rescue your files and documents but a system restore disk won't do this, it will wipe you hard disk and return it to factory default. therefore you could just start again with any copy of windows XP. You'll need driver disks but you can download them from the gateway website. you can get an XP disk cheaply on ebay.
