How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) folder via...


quite a bit of "what if's there" lol

First of all, yes you CAN re-direct the 'my documents' folder to another location....be it on an internal or external drive volume. This requires careful adjustments to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folder

when you do this, you can assign any path to the "my documents" folder, (and also the others listed,) this will be a permanent change and will cause that path to be the new destination for files saved to 'my documents' by the OS. the actual path does not HAVE to even have the word 'documents' in it...you could call it E:\bubbles if you want.

You would continue to 'save' your new docs to 'my documents', the OS would just be interpreting a new and different destination for the Save.

Should that resource become unavailable, you would have to perform a 'save-as' and then specify a valid save location.

If you are doing this because of limited space on your C-drive, well and good, but if not, then consider Drive synchronization software instead.
These software programs allow you to specify single, or multiple folders, to copy files. you would set it up to copy from your pc to the same-named folder(s) on the external drive, and to propagate changes....so it will save files that are new or changed and delete files that were deleted, (this can be suppressed.)

One of the pitfalls of using USB devices is that drive letters are typically assigned automatically. If you do not manually assign a drive letter that is not typically accessed by the fist say....4 USB drives, it is possible for the PC to become confused and start putting files to the wrong USB device. So assign your external a high drive letter like P for portable, and don't forget to include that in the new 'path' you put in the registry.

I hope that answered your questions.

Is there anyway to get data off a corrupt hard disc drive


Yes, usually the operating system is what corrupts and the data is typically intact. You will need the following.
  • Hiren Boot CD Here Download the ISO file and burn it to a CD from another computer
  • An External HDD
With your Hiren disc in the computer with a corrupt drive, boot to CD/DVD. You will get the Hiren Boot Menu, select boot to Mini XPThis will load a live Windows XP image. Plug in the external drive open up "My Computer" and navigate to your data on the C Drive. Copy it to the external drive.Now you can proceed to wipe out your corrupted install and copy your data back.

My hardisk copy and paste very slow what todo


You can try running a disc check or defragmenting the drive. As time goes on hard drives can develop fragmentation from deleting files and defragmenting can clear this up. Hard drives can also develop damaged sectors which running a disc check can clear up.

HOW TO FORMAT A ZIP DRIVE FOR MACINTOSH SYSTEM 7.6.1. I need to copy data from my old mac's hard drive in order to copy it to a new machine.


Format on your old Macintosh using standard Mac HFS, then your new Mac will read the files without problems. Reformat the discs if they came pre-formatted for DOS as the filenames won't copy properly and will be very slow to read/write If your new Mac is FireWire/USB only, then you'll need to track down a USB Zip drive (the 100Mg or 250meg versions will read your discs ok.)

USB dard drive extermly slow


common problem with larger size drives, windows is trying to populate the entire contents of the drive at once. try to keep single files out of the root drive (aka put your files in folders) that way when you access the drive it will just populate a bunch of folders instead of a million individual files
