Tip

Make your Folders Private


Hi,

  1. Open My Computer
  2. Double-click the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive (C:), unless you have more than one drive on your computer).
  3. If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show the contents of this drive.
  4. Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.
  5. Double-click your user folder.
  6. Right-click any folder in your user profile, and then click Properties.
  7. On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only I have access to it check box.

Note
  1. To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.
  2. This option is only available for folders included in your user profile. Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders, Desktop, Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders private, they are available to everyone who uses your computer.
  3. When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as well. For example, when you make My Documents private, you also make My Music and My Pictures private. When you share a folder, you also share all of its subfolders unless you make them private.
  4. You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted as NTFS For information about converting your drive to NTFS


Good luck!

Show hidden files


to unhide file extensions to see what you have in XP open my computer (or windows explorer) Tools/Folder Options/View change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

to unhide file extensions in win7, vista go to my computer (or windows explorer) Organize/folder and search options/view change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

In win8 I'm not sure how to get to it unless you change to show classic view somehow

My PS3 recognizes my old external hard drive but not my new one (same brand). Why?


Connect the hard drive to your computer using a USB cord.heck what the File System type is by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. The file system type must be FAT32 in order for the Playstation to recognize it.3 FAT32 has a limit of 3.9 Gigabytes per file, which means some high quality HD movies might have to be split into smaller files, and that makes it less than ideal for some HD content.4 Please read this entire step before attempting - going into the command prompt is for advanced users only. It is recommended that you instead use HP's freeware tool "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" instead of following this step which shows you how to manually format your drive.Note that on all of these systems the ormating process will take considerable time (possibly hours) depending on the size of the Hard Drive. This is normal, just be patient.Windows Users Using the following method you can only format a drive to FAT32 up to 32GB in size.[This requires confirmation as I thought that was only true during windows setup? 8TB format is technically possible with FAT32] Freeware such as EASEUS Partition Manager allow you to format the entire drive as FAT32, whereas windows and other programs like SwissKnife v3 will limit it to 32GB and 393GB respectively. If the file system type is "NTFS", right click and select "Delete Partition" or "Delete Volume" for Vista.Recreate the partition but do NOT format it. Make sure you assign a drive letter (for this Tutorial, we'll use H:)Format the drive by going to the command prompt (Vista, right click on Command Prompt in Start>All Programs>Accessories and click "Run as Administrator") and type in "format h: /FS:FAT32" (without the quotes). You may need to substitute your drive letter. (note this might not work on XP for a large hard drive - you may have to use a third-party formatting utility like like the HP Utility noted above. If you receive an error message stating that the drive does not exist or cannot be found, it is likely that Vista has formatted the drive to "NTFS". Use the Disk Management screen to delete this partition again choosing the option to not format the partition then use the command line format command again. Mac OS X Users Open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive, and click on the 'Erase' tab. Pick 'MS-DOS (FAT)' for the file system type, and click on the 'Erase' button.Mac OS X Leopard Users Open /Application/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive and click on the 'Partition' tab. Pick '1 Partition,' for the Volume Scheme, and 'MS-DOS (FAT),' for the Format. Click the 'Options...' button (near the bottom) and select 'Master Boot Record.' Press 'Okay' and then 'Apply 5 Open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive.6 Create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. All folder names must be in capital letters. In the root directory of your drive, create folders named "PICTURE", "MUSIC", and "VIDEO". If you do not create these folders, your media files will not display when selecting the USB drive on your PS3, although you can access them if you press the triangle button and select "display all". If you will also be storing backups, save game data or themes, create a folder called "PS3" with folders called "EXPORT", "SAVEDATA", and "THEME" inside 7 Load all the music you want into your music folder, all the video you want into your video folder, and all the photos you want into your picture folder. Your game folder should still be empty.8 Disconnect the hard drive by clicking the green checkmark in the icon list and the bottom right hand corner of the screen and select "Safely remove Disconnect the hard drive by clicking the green checkmark in the icon list and the bottom right hand corner of the screen and select "Safely remove. Once your computer tells you "*** drive can now be safely removed", unplug the hard drive from your computer.10 connect the hard drive to your Playstation 3 and use the extra space to save information and access all your extra content saved on your external hard drive.11 In order to make your new HDD recognized by PS3, you must make sure that: First, the file system is FAT32 or NTFs. If it is NTFs, you should convert it to FAT32 with an NTF converter.Second, make sure your PS3 firmware is the latest version. If it's not, download the latest firmware from the Playstation website and put it on a memory stick to transfer to your PS3 via a USB port. This will be recognized by the PS3 and will be used in the process of setting up your new hard drive. You should also put your FAT32 partition as the first partition on your HDD, as only this can be recognized by PS3.

My PS3 doesn't recognise the linkstation???


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. if your External drive is not detected by your Ps3 console you need to format it and select Fat32 File system. Ps3 will not recognize external harddrive using NTFS Format make sure you format the drive using Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows Vista dont have Fat32 but Exfat File format. After you format the drive to Fat32 make sure you create a folder like Music, Photo, Video and other forlders so that it will be detected by your console.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I formatted my Thomson mp3 6742. Now it shows Thomson when I turn it on, says profiling requires 20mb free space and shuts down.


I've reformatted mine with no problems.

I saved the files and folders before reformatting, then copied them back onto the Thompson 6742. Also make sure to format the Thomson using the FAT32 file system.

Is alpine going to upgrade the usb formay from fat32 to ntsf for playing memory sticks in unit or how do you format music to fat32 on a windows xp ntsf format without wiping out hard drive


The Alpine CDE-103BT requires only USB media that is FAT12/16/32. You can format your USB medium on your PC to FAT32 then copy your media (music) to the the USB drive.
Insert your USB Drive to the PC On your PC navigate to Start ->MY Computer Then locate your the drive that is your USB Drive. At this time you will want to save any of your data before continuing. All Data on the USB drive will be lost. Next ensure that you have selected the correct drive. Right Click on the drive on go to format... Under File System select FAT32. I would suggest leaving Quick Format unchecked. So you ensure that will information is removed. Then Click start. Next copy your media (music) back to the USB Drive. Insert in to the CDE-103BT Stereo.
Notes: MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then stored to a USB memory. This unit can recognize at least 100 folders (including root folder) and 100 files per folder stored in USB memory. Do not make a file's playback time more than 1 hour.

How can i set up network file sharing


First step is to check if the file sharing option is checked in my computer folder options.

Start- My computer- TOOLS - FOLDER OPTIONS- and click on the second tab VIEW- scroll down to the last option which will show as USE SIMPLE FILE SHARING.

Level 1: My Documents (Private) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); The owner of the file or folder has read and write permission to the file or folder. Nobody else may read or write to the folder or the files in it. All subfolders that are contained in a folder that is marked as private remain private unless you change the parent folder permissions.

If you are a Computer Administrator and create a user password for your account by using the User Accounts Control Panel tool, you are prompted to make your files and folder private.

Note The option to make a folder private (Level 1) is available only to a user account in its own My Documents folder.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 1, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Select the Make this Folder Private check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 2 (Default): My Documents (Default) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); The owner of the file or folder and local Computer Administrators have read and write permission to the file or folder. Nobody else may read or write to the folder or the files in it. This is the default setting for all the folders and files in each user's My Documents folder.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 2, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Make sure that both the Make this Folder Private and the Share this folder on the network check boxes are cleared, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 3: Files in shared documents available to local users loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Files are shared with users who log on to the computer locally. Local Computer Administrators can read, write, and delete the files in the Shared Documents folder. Restricted Users can only read the files in the Shared Documents folder. In Windows XP Professional, Power Users may also read, write, or delete any files in the Shared Documents Folder. The Power Users group is available only in Windows XP Professional. Remote users cannot access folders or files at Level 3. To allow remote users to access files, you must share them out on the network (Level 4 or 5).

To configure a file or a folder and all the files in it to Level 3, start Microsoft Windows Explorer, and then copy or move the file or folder to the Shared Documents folder under My Computer.

Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • Power Users: Change
  • Restricted Users: Read
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 4: Shared on the Network (Read-Only) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Files are shared for everyone to read on the network. All local users, including the Guest account, can read the files. But they cannot modify the contents. Any user can read and change your files.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 4, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Click to select the Share this folder on the network check box
  3. Click to clear the Allow network users to change my files check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
  • Everyone: Read
Network Share Permissions:
  • Everyone: Read
Level 5: Shared on the network (Read and Write) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); This level is the most available and least secure access level. Any user (local or remote) can read, write, change, or delete a file in a folder shared at this access level. We recommend that this level be used only for a closed network that has a firewall configured. All local users including the Guest account can also read and modify the files.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 5, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security
  2. Click to select the Share this folder on the network check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
  • Everyone: Change
Network Share Permissions:
  • Everyone: Full Control
Note All NTFS permissions that refer to Everyone include the Guest account.

All the levels that this article describes are mutually exclusive. Private folders (Level 1) cannot be shared unless they are no longer private. Shared folders (Level 4 and 5) cannot be made private until they are unshared.

If you create a folder in the Shared Documents folder (Level 3), share it on the network, and then allow network users to change your files (Level 5), the permissions for Level 5 are effective for the folder, the files in that folder, and the subfolders. The other files and folders in the Shared Documents folder remain configured at Level 3.

Windows XP - 'My Documents" missing!


In windows xp there could be multiple profiles.

Check under c:\documents and settings\

Everything in that folder is a user profile. some are system profiles like "all users", "default user", "Network Service" All the other profiles should be user profiles. In each user profile there is a my documents or a user's documents folder.

You should check there to see if you can find your files.
