SOURCE: drive full??

I think this article may explain it. You may need to break up your external drive in to 200 GB chunks so you can see all of the space: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86178

SOURCE: Locked Folders

One week ago my LaCie external disk has been locked during a system reinstallation process in which the hard drive was plugged in.  The message was that I had no permission to access it. I thought I would loose for ever all the files I have been backed up for years. But finally I have got the solution for that. There is a sofware called MacPilot (I used version 3.2.6, $20, 15-day trial) that fixes it. Once instaled, click TOOLS, then "Files&Folders" at left, then "Unlock File or Folder", press "Choose", it opens FINDER and then you click LacCie Disk. When the padlock symbol at the botton of LACie disapears, you can finally change the permissions to "read&Record". That's all, and I hope it helps. 
I recommend that you always unplug external hard drivers during system reinstallation to prevent that.

SOURCE: backup folder shows as empty

Have you tried showing hidden and system files?
In the Windows Explorer, go to the Tools menu and select Options or Folder Options.
In the View tab, scroll in the list and make sure show hidden files is selected. You can also unselect the 'hide system files' option.

That will show you anything on the disk!

SOURCE: Lacie USB 2.0 No files or folders displayed in backup folder

Did you try showing "hidden folders and files"?
In the Explorer, select the Tools menu, and pick Folder Options.
Select the View tab and in the list enable "show hidden files and folders".
You can also try showing system files (so choose not to hide them).

That should show you all files and folders on the disk.

Do make sure you are logged in as a user with admin rights.

SOURCE: How do I view the files in my LaCie backup folder?

It appears you have an external hard drive. It should connect to your computer with a USB cable. Make sure the external hard drive is turned on and running before you connect the usb cable to the computer. Some external hard drives have an on/off switch and some do not. you can hear it running if you put your ear close to the case.

When you plug it in, wait a few minutes and the computer should indicate that it has recognized it. (sometimes this does not happen) In any case, after a few minutes, open My Computer (Computer, in Windows 7) (sometimes referred to as Explorer- NOT to be confused with Windows Explorer which is an internet browser). You should see a list of recognized drives including your external hard drive. Doubler click on it and you should be able to see your files.

If it doesn't show in Explorer, the computer might be trying to assign a drive letter to it that is already taken. To fix that, go to Control panel, Administrator Tools, Computer management, Disk Management. You should see your external drive listed and you can assign an unused drive designation to it there. You should then be able to go back to Explorer and see it. You might have to refresh the Explorer screen.

How can I recover an deleted email


Check to see whether the deleted email is still recoverable on your email system.

Most email services save deleted emails in a trash folder.


If you do not find your email in the trash folder, you can try a simple search of your computer's system.


If you have no luck finding the file on your computer's system, you can try a software file recovery program.


Look for a software recovery program that supports the email service you use.

For example, Data Recovery Wizard specializes in recovery of Microsoft Outlook files.

Malwarebytes quarantines certain file types as if they were a virus when using the default settings. Your missing files are probably in the quarantine area too. Instead of trying to locate them, try restoring your pc to a date before you noticed them missing. Your pc has a feature called "system restore" that will help return your files to where they belong.

Click on start, then go to programs, find accessories and then click on system tools. Look for system restore until system tools and click on it. Choose a restoration date that is before the day the files disappeared and then follow the prompts to start the process. The computer will handle the restoration for you and then restart itself when its finished. It will let you know if the restoration was successful or not after rebooting. You should be able to locate your missing files after the process is complete. Good luck!

An error occcurred during the installtion of my HP 7280 photosmart printer. The parameter in incorrect.


Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP require files named printupg.inf and printupg.PNF to be found in the Windows .inf folder. If these files are missing or damaged, no printer can be installed and the error of incorrect parameter will come, and the existing files need to be removed if present, and a fresh copy of printupg.inf restored from the Windows backup archive. Kindly Do the following steps:--------
  • Double-click My Computer on the first screen or in Start menu.
  • On the Menu bar, click Tools , then Folder Options
  • Click the View tab.
  • Under Hidden Files And Folders, select Show hidden files and folders
  • Deselect Hide extensions for known file types and Hide protected operating system files .
  • After the above steps, you will be sure that the Computer is showing all files. After it >..............
  • Close the other applications. Double-click the hard drive icon that Windows is installed in, the name usually ends with C: .
  • Double-click the Windows or WINNT folder icon.
  • Double-click the .inf folder icon
  • On the Menu bar, click View , then Details .
  • Click the word Name above the list of folder and file icons until the list is in alphabetical order.
  • Scroll down the list to the section where files starting with the word print are located.
  • If files are found named printupg.inf or printupg.PNF , rename them using the following procedure:----
  1. Right-click on one of the files, then click Rename
  2. Click at the right edge of the file name to remove the highlight from the name.
  3. Press the Backspace key on the keyboard three times to remove the inf or PNF letters
  4. Type the reverse of the three letters, then press the Enter key on the keyboard. For example, inf would be replaced with fni, and PNF would be replaced by FNP.
  5. If the other file is present, Repeat Steps as through in step 4.
  • Insert a new copy of printupg.inf into the inf folder using the following procedure:
  1. Determine where the correct i386 folder is by double-clicking My Computer on the first screen or in the Start menu, then double-clicking the icon that ends with C: If the i386 folder is not displayed, click the Up or Back arrow at the top of the window, then try any other icons that look exactly like the one already tried, one at a time. If the i386 folder is still not found, insert the Windows or computer manufacturer recovery CD-ROM disc and double-click each icon that looks like a CD-ROM disc one at a time.
  2. Make a note of the path where the folder is found, including the drive letter at the end of the icon name. If folder icons were double-clicked during the search, do not use the i386 folder found after double-clicking the Driver Cache folder. For example, if the i386 folder was found on the recovery CD-ROM disc in drive G: , in folder Archive, the path would beG:\Archive\i386. If the folder was found in the computer's hard drive, the path will probably be C:\i386 . If it was found on the Windows CD-ROM disc inserted in the drive icon ending in M: , the path would be M:\i386
  3. Click Start , then Run
  4. In the Run box, type CMD , then click OK
  5. At the blinking cursor in the black box, type the following statement, where PATH is the actual path determined in step a above and _ is the underscore key, which requires holding the Shift key while pressing the Dash key: EXPAND PATH\printupg.in_ C:\XXX\inf\printupg.inf .
  6. The text that Windows displays in the black box will now indicate if the file was found and expanded or not. If the text includes an error message, type the statement above again at the blinking cursor, checking for accuracy. Ensure that all backslashes and the single blank spacebar key after the underscore (Shift+Dash) are included, and that a full colon is typed after each drive letter.
  7. If another error is displayed, verify that the PATH being typed is correct by referring to step a above, then type the statement again
After the file has been successfully expanded, close the black box. The missing printupg.PNF file will be created by Windows when it is needed.
  • Uninstall and reinstall the printer software by using the procedure recommended in the documentation that came with the printer.
Thank you, Have a nice day.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.

Search Problem


This was a Mac OS issue. The Volume needs to be Re-indexed:
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. Click Spotlight.
  3. Click the Privacy tab.
  4. Drag a folder or even an entire volume (your hard drive) to the list.
  5. Remove the item or volume you just added.
Spotlight will re-index the contents of the item you initially dragged to the list.

Can't download large movie files to iphoto : (


i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.

rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.

-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.

By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.
