Good Morning
I reconmend NOT removing those files.
They are files that you need if/when your sytem crashes. They kinda belong to lenova...but they are yous.
How big is your Harddrive?
There is another route you can go... purchase a bigger HD and transfer the files to the new HD.
Your computer will never know what happen

How do you retrieve raw files from external hard drive? What format are they in? Will they be the same quality?


Files are Files are Files. The .raw file type is just a specific method of saving data with a lot of information. The .jpg's are a much more compressed version that really save a lot of space, whether it be on a hard drive or memory card.

You should be able to use your external drives much like a memory card or internal hard drive. You should be able to move files from one drive to another, deleting or copying files wherever you feel necessary. There will be no loss of quality if you move a file from point A to point B.

It hang alot and don,t know what to do


You can try defragging your hard drive or adding more memory. Additionally I would use an antivirus program and also Malwarebytes Anti Malware (Mbam) to see if there are any viruses or malware slowing down your system. If those don't work you should back up all of your important files and do a full reinstall of the operating system.

There are several levels of formatting. You never need to remove your sim or memory cards because these are not touched during the reset procedures.

Reset to factory defaults (*#7780#) : Restores settings but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc). This works in the same way as selecting it from the phones settings menu.

Full Reset (*#7370#) : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

The hard reset is more aggressive and has been know to solve some hardware issues such as non-functioning bluetooth. It's also the only method that may work if the phone cannot boot up.

Hard reset:

1. Switch off the phone.

2. Hold down the following three buttons: Green (the call answer button), * button, and '3' button.

3. While holding these buttons, hold the power button for a second to switch on the phone.

4. Release when the phone shows the nokia hands logo or shows other signs of life like the language selection screen.

Can't link my archos to my laptop


1. Copy all factory installed files from the Archos on to your PC hard drive or write a CD / DVD.
2. Download the latest software from www.Archos.com and keep a copy safe (not on the Archos!) … there was a new version last week by the way …1.5.12
3. If you record any films, music, or TV that you want to keep forever then don’t keep them on the Archos!
4. Factory installed samples (photos & films), wallpaper, etc are available for download from FTP://support.archos.com
5. If you need to format the drive but it won’t talk to the PC through the normal USB, try plugging a flash memory card (the bigger the better) into the other (left hand) USB socket and copy stuff onto it.
6. Avoid changing back & forward between ‘hard drive’ and ‘windows device’ … not sure if this was the cause of the problem but you never know!
7.Always have mains power (not battery) when moving files around.

I cant get factory settings on my computer My hard drive wont work properly Ihavent got any memory.Computer very slow Please explain in laymans terms Obliged


1. Factory settings on computer.
There really isn't "factory settings" to reset. Well it isn't simple as that. There is the BIOS which can be reset to "default settings" for the BIOS. Also most brand name computers come with a recovery feature, in which you can recovery/restore the computer back to original factory defaults with original software all installed. Therefore the computer's operating system (usually windows) will be running with the programs like it would run if you were to buy the same new laptop.

2. Hard drive won't work properly.
You can give the hard drive a test using the hard drive's company's hard drive testing software which can be download from their site. The software would test the hard drive to make sure nothing physical is wrong and the hard drive is functioning like normal.

3. Haven't got any memory. Computer very slow.
You can always buy more memory. If windows says it's running out of memory. That means there is too many software running in the background.

Comment if you want more explained.
