Can not read email


Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.

Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.

Reload the page.
lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.

Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.
Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.

If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted.

Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.

Check the file format.

Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.

For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.

if this fails to fix the problem
If you accidentally delete an important email, you may want to reset your Yahoo! email account to a previous time to recover it.

This is possible by filing a Yahoo! email restoration request.
Unfortunately, Yahoo! is unlikely to be able to reset an email account to a time period more than 24 hours in the past, although it may be possible in some cases.

Visit the Yahoo! email recovery site (see Below).
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/basics/basics-01.html

Click on "Please use this form" next to the name of the Yahoo! Mail version you use (All New Yahoo! Mail or Classic).


Select the time period you want to reset your Yahoo! email account to in hours. For example, if you wanted to go back eight hours, select "8."

Type your Yahoo! username, name and email address.
If you aren't signed in, you'll need to enter your password as well.

Click on "Submit" to submit your request to Yahoo! technical support.

How to recover Office Document Files


Documents such as Word files, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, Access databases and a wide range of other titles are among the most valuable to their users. Unlike photographs that can be snapped in an instant, it takes a lot of time to create a document. And it only takes a single moment to lose it.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0_1.jpg

Undeleting Document Files

Accidentally deleting an important document (*.doc, *.docx, *.pdf), presentation (*.ppt) or spreadsheets (*.xls, *.xlsx) can happen to anyone. End of a working day or a busy week can and do lead to human errors, making people delete documents instead of archiving or sending them.
Fortunately, recovering a deleted file is fairly simple if you act fast. If you deleted a document, Windows will not actually erase its content. Instead, the system will simply mark its record in the file system as "deleted", allowing you to reverse this operation with a proper tool.

Safety Data Recovery

To undelete a document, download Hetman Uneraser. However, it's best if you can use another PC do download the product, as writing anything, including the data recovery program, to the disk that contains deleted files may actually overwrite their content, making the files unrecoverable.
After downloading the tool, install it onto a disk other than one that contains the deleted files. If you have no such disk, use a USB flash drive. Run Hetman Uneraser and perform a quick disk scan. More often than not, you'll see your file in the list after a brief moment. If the file you deleted does not appear in the list, you'll have to run the full scan. The complete scanning of your hard disk may take a while to complete, as the tool will be analyzing all sectors on your hard drive in order to locate deleted documents even if they no longer appear in the file system.
When you see your file in the list, you can click on it to see a preview. Sometimes you'll see multiple copies of the same file. The preview will help you pick the least damaged one or the latest copy saved.

Corrupted or Formatted Disk

If your documents are stored on a disk that's been damaged, corrupted, accidentally formatted or repartitioned, you'll need a different tool. Download Hetman Partition Recovery from site. This tool will be able to scan the damaged disk in order to locate all document files that are still available.
With formatted, repartitioned and corrupted disks, the quick scan mode is of little use. More often than not you'll be better served by the slower full scan mode. The rest of the process is very similar to that described for Hetman Uneraser.

A Word on SSD Drives

If your documents were stored on an SSD drive, your chances of getting them back are rather low. SSD's employ a number of techniques to improve their performance and longevity, basically cleaning up everything that's been deleted. If you format an SSD drive, it'll physically erase data, making the files unrecoverable. If you delete a file, the TRIM command will clean up disk space that was used by that file. There's little hope with SSD drives, but there are important exceptions:
  • Exception 1: if your SSD drive became damaged or corrupted, the garbage collection algorithms will not engage, and the actual content of the disk will remain recoverable. Use Hetman Partition Recovery to scan the disk and recover the documents.
  • Exception 2: if your SSD drive was connected via a USB cable at the time it was formatted or a document was deleted, the TRIM command will not be issued, and your files will remain recoverable. Use Hetman Uneraser or Hetman Partition Recovery to recover the documents.
  • Exception 3: if you were using the SSD drive with a version of Windows older than Windows 7 (e.g. Windows XP or Vista), the TRIM command will not be issued, and the files will remain recoverable.

Won't delete back up files cannot format to full 500 gb


Hello, pmanso, instead of "deleting the files," open the "Disk Management."
  • Click on the "Start" button.
  • Next, {Alt / Right} click on the Computer 'shortcut' select "Manage."
  • In the next 'window that opens, 'open the "Disk Management" in the [Left area] of the 'window.' paul7of9_98.jpg
  • Now, look 'under' the "Volume" tab, paul7of9_99.jpg and find the 'External' [HDD] 'letter' ie: (F:).
  • Next, click on the "Volume" to open, and select to "Delete Volume..."
!Attention: If you are "still" having a 'problem deleting the {Data).
  • Try "Formatting" the Volume.
  • Now, if this isn't working out to 'well,' open the "Properties" from the 'same' location.
  • Perform a [Disk Cleanup], and 'delete' all files! paul7of9_100.jpg
  • All {areas} are accessible, by "alt / right click on "Volumes."
  • Restart the Computer when finished!

Looks like my hard drive is full and it can not boot up. how can I get to the hard drive to delete pictures to have more space for window to load?


If the hard drive is not faulty and the computer won't boot up, then remove the hard drive from your computer and connect it an USB hard drive adapter. Connect the adapter and hard drive to a working computer's USB port, this computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders and delete the photos or data files.
When you restore the hard drive back into your computer and when it boots up, your should do a Disk Cleanup then a Defrag. Disk Cleanup will remove old temporary files, old compressed files etc and free up disk space. Defrag will make fragmented files contiguous so the files can be accessed more efficiently. If you have not run these programs before, it will take a log time to complete.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out once a month to maintain the hard disk.

The size of squid log files of my proxy server are geting too big for my disk space. I manually deleate them when the disk space is gettin full & the squid service is stoped autometically.How can I delete...


Find your squid.conf file. Likely path to it could be /usr/lib/squidc/etc, or
maybe /etc/squid.

That file should contain a setting for logfile_rotate, probably at a default of
10. Change that to 2.

Then add a once-a-day job to root's crontab, on the order of:
1 1 * * * /usr/lib/squid/bin/squid -k rotate

Disk full


your question is too general

if a disk is full you need to delete some things to put more on.

some media players allow additional storage (usually a flash card configured to look like a disk) but that would depend on what player you have

other players might allow you to swap "disks" (again, more likely some type of flash card rather than a real plate spinning disk)

there might be a way to format the "disk", again this would depend on the actual player you are using ANY FORMAT COMMAND IS GOING TO DELETE ALL INFO so caution should be used if you find an option labeled "format"
