How do i view the backup from my previous computer ? i can see the photos from my iphone and one pdf file, the files from the computer are "protected"


Eortiz, did you try to read the files with a windows PC? Because when you connect the external drive to a PC you should be able to view the files and even be able to change the attributes like read only and hidden.

How to uninstall windows 7


Step 1:
Delete Windows 7 b> Released in October 2009, Windows 7 is the most recent Microsoft Operating system (as of September 2010). It offers several advances over previous versions of windows, including improved media functions and networking. Windows 7 is not for everyone, however, and there are instances in which someone may wish to remove Windows 7 in favor of an earlier version. There are three ways to delete Windows 7, and the method you use depends on how it was originally installed.

b>Back up the data on your computer. Go to the Windows Start Menu. Select "Computer" and right-click on the "C" drive. Left-click on "Properties" and write down the amount of free space on your drive. Close out of the "C" drive properties and go to the Windows Start Menu. Type "Windows.old" in the "Search Programs and Files" box. If the "Windows.old" folder does not exist, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." Right-click the Windows.old folder, left-click on "Properties" and look at the of the folder. Compare the of the folder with the amount of free space on your drive you wrote down in Step 2. The Windows.old folder contains compressed files; if the folder is more than two times the of the amount of free space on your drive, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." For example: If you only have 10GB of free space on your C drive and the Windows.old file is 22GB large, when it expands it may use up the remaining 10GB and then some. Insert the Windows 7 installation disc and reboot your machine. Select the option to boot from CD/DVD when prompted. Set the language, time and location-specific settings and click "Next." Select "Repair Your Computer" from the list of installation options. Select your version of Windows 7 and click "Next." Click "Command Prompt" to open the command prompt window. Type the following commands, and hit the "Enter" key after each: C: Md Win7 Move Windows Win7\Windows Move "Program Files" "Win7\Program Files" Move Users Win7\Users Attrib --h --s --r ProgramData Move ProgramData Win7\ProgramData Rd "Documents and Settings" Type the following commands and hit the "Enter" key after each: move /y c:\Windows.old\Windows c:\ move /y "c:\Windows.old\Program Files" c:\ move /y c:\Windows.old\ProgramData c:\ move /y c:\Windows.old\Users c:\ move /y "c:\Windows.old\Documents and Settings" c Restore the boot sector for the earlier version of Windows with one of the following commands: For Vista, type: D:\boot\bootsect /nt52 c: For Windows XP or Windows 2000, type: D:\boot\bootsect /nt60 c: Type the following commands and hit the "Enter" key after each command: Attrib --h --s --r boot.ini.saved Copy boot.ini.saved boot.ini Close the Command Prompt window and reboot your computer. b> Remove Windows 7 From a Multi-Boot System Boot your computer to the Non-Windows 7 Operating system and back up your data. Go to the Windows Start Menu, select "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Select "Administrative Tools" and double-click "Computer Management." Enter your Administrator Password if prompted. Click "Storage" on the left and select "Disk Management." Locate the drive or partition that is running the Windows 7 operating system. If you have both operating systems on the same partition, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." Right-click on the Windows 7 partition, click "Format" or "Delete" to remove Windows 7 from that partition. Click "OK" and reboot your computer. b> Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System Back up the data on your hard drive and insert the desired Windows installation disk, such as Windows Vista or Windows XP. Reboot your machine and select the option to boot from CD/DVD. Press "Enter" to start the installation process. Hit F8 to agree to the "Microsoft Software License Terms" and select the option to install a new version of the software. Select the C: drive and highlight the option to format and partition the drive. Press the "Enter" key. Follow the on-screen prompts to install Windows. The computer may reboot several times during the installation process. Enter your product key when prompted.

Need to know how to stop thm from downloading into computer


Assuming you are using Windows XP, the following solution applies to remove the thumbs.db file from your picture folders. The function of thumbs.db is just to cache the pictures in that folder so that previews load faster, so you can safely disable this feature and delete the file.

First let's turn this feature off, so that no new thumbs.db files are created (the thumbs.db already created will have to deleted manually:

1) Open My Computer or any windows folder
2) From the top menu options, click on "Tools"
3) Open Folder Options, click on "VIEW" tab (right of "GENERAL" tab)
4) In "Advanced Settings", under "Files and Folders" sub heading, put a check mark in the "Do not cache thumbnails" option (by default it's unchecked).
5) Now, click Ok and close the folder.
6) That's it, no more annoying "thumbs.db" files.

Next follow these steps to remove the thumbs.db files already created in your hard drive.

1) Click on Start button and open "Search"
2) Click on All Files and Folders (by default XP search is set to standard. Advanced mode is slightly different and can be selected from "change preferences" --> "change files and folder search behaviour", but basically the procedure remains same.
3) Type "thumbs.db" in "all or part of the file name"
4) In the Look in box, make sure all local hard drives is chosen or you can select "my computer" too from the drop down menu.
5) Now, this step is important, expand "more advanced options", by clicking on its arrow and make sure all the first three options, ie, search "system folders", "hidden files" & "subfolders" are selected (have check marks). If not select them. (Remember, most "thumbs.db" have an "hidden file" attribute, so if hidden file search is unchecked, either no results or very few only will appear.
6) Click "Search" and wait till search is completed. It can take a long time depending on your hard drive size and contents.
7) All thumbs.db files in your hard drive will be displayed
8) Click "Edit" from the top menu options and click "Select All" from the drop down menu.
8) Click "File" menu (left of EDIT), now click "Delete" rom its drop down options.
9) Click "yes" if asked for confirmation. Close "search", now go to "Recycle Bin" and empty it.
10) Your PC is now free of "thumbs.db" pest forever.

I am trying to use Picasa 3 and was doing great, now when I try to use it I am getting a message that says CBlockFile::open Block err=2 thumbs ob I love the program and use it daily please tell me how...


Every folder on your C: drive that contains any picture will contain a file named 'thumbs.db'.
So, close Picasas.
Open "My Pictures", and then open the folder that contains the picture.
Click 'Tools".
Click "Folder Options".
Click "View"
Change the setting to "view hidden files".
Delete that 'thumbs.db' file.
Change the setting to "hide hidden files".
Re-open Picasa.
Picasa will rebuild that 'thumbs.db' file.

Usb drive use


Most thumb drives are used like floppy or rewritable optical discs (excluding ReadyBoost and the bootable versions). They are most often formatted as FAT drives (under Windows). If the drive is good and the USB port is good, plugging the drive into the computer's port should trigger a "new hardware found" message from Windows.

In Windows, open My Computer or Computer (depending on the OS) and you will see it listed under Drives with Removable Storage. You can use the file explorer to navigate through your regular drive and copy files to the thumb drive or the reverse. (I usually open two different windows and drag the files with a right-click then select Copy.) Synch programs can let you keep the thumb drive and hard disc copy at the same version. Alternatively, you can save a file directly from the program that you are usng to edit the material. (File > Save As and chose the destination). You can also open the file from the thumb drive in a similar mode. To avoid lost data, always select the Safely Remove Hardware from the taskbar (or Eject from the File Explorer) before unplugging the drive from the port.

The biggest problem is that the FAT formatting limits the number of files you can put on the disc unless you keep them in folders. (The same number of folders can be in the home directory as files without using folders.)

Bootable thumb drives (as well as those that can run software directly from the USB drive) come with software that lets them do this. Then they act like any optical disc with Autorun and executable programs. Readyboost is dealt with completely by the OS and keeps the drive (or portion of the drive) separate from the area that will store files.

Sometimes these drives do fail. Getting the data off the flash memory takes a professional most of the time.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(You can copy all of the files from the thumb drive and reformat it at intervals. Then copy files back if you are concerned about file fragmentation.)

A FILE WINDOWS SYSTEM ROOT 32 IS MISSING OR CORRUPT


Try starting in 'SAFE MODE'.
Click START
Click RUN
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type 'CHKDSK C: /F' and press ENTER.
If you are prompted to shutdown & restart to run the "check disk", do so.
During the restart, "check disk" will find/repair any file-system problems, and then restart in "normal" mode.

External imation hard drive showing an empty folder !


You can run a data recovery app on the drive and attempt to pull offany data still accessible. I recommend the GetDataBack Data Recoveryapps from http://www.runtime.org . Get the one for the file system on your thumb drive and give it a try. These apps have recovered data from "dead" drives for me more times than I can count.

Can not View files in 100MEDIA folder


Can you open the folder and the file are "invisible" or is the computer denying permission? Which Operating System? (XP? Vista? Linux? Ect?)

For now, unplug unit from computer, take batteries out, shutdown computer and reboot. BE SURE TO SHUT DOWN PROPERLY!!!
After, try it again. If your using the prompt from Windows to view folder, you may want to try going through Start-->(My)Computer-->Disk D:, E:, F:, or whichever.
