Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Software problem Thanx for the reply but on the same hard drive in the same folder there is some of the setup files that actually works and the icons is perfect but most of them does not work, the thing is the ones that does not work is the ones that i previously installed on either my laptop or on the Pc. I don't know if you can maybe use some setup files only once especially when it runs from a drive were is can be changed by windows during the setup to prevent you from using it agene on another system, because the ones that is on cd works every time on any system and i think its maybe because it can not be changed on the cd by windows. I'm a bit confused with all of this as i never had this problem before this is the first time.

Can I retrieve a Username & Password for a file from My old computer , I,switch everything of to a new computer and it didn't save the username or password?


As a rule, if you actually piggy-backed an old hard drive to the new MAIN (#1) hard drive, you should not need a password. Assuming your in Windows (Win10 OS) simply seek the old drive from File Explorer. That is the small tab on the lower bar that looks like a File. Tap that icon and bring up file explorer. Now to the left, you will see options, whereby select THIS PC. Now the main window changes to show all of the devices attached to the computer. Your Hard Drive should be letter "D" or other than "C" witch is drive #1 your new hard drive. Tap over that ICON and it will bring up the data on the old drive. You can now select the folder called USER. Select (open) user file that pertains to you. If it won't open, you may have to get permission by making that folder a SHARE Folder.

Can't find back-up folder


You might have to create a folder you can do this by right clicking in the backup destination drive selecting new folder and name it lets say Back Up 2012 for the excercise.

Determine how much space you need.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.


You can do this in a couple of ways.

Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."


This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.


If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.


Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.


Choose a backup method.

Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.



Plug the flash drive or the External Hard drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


Hope this helps.

Unit downloaded fine ad the did the back up of the drive fine.started the updates and the firmware stopped and then the drive locked up how to access the drive again after reboot nothing shows G: F:


  1. To restore the Western Digital icon to the drive letter for the external drive in "My Computer".
  2. Please go to the Western Digital Download Library and download the WD Logo Icon which has a file name of External Icon.zip when you download it.
  3. Save the file to your desktop and use a file compression software like Winzip to extract the files inside the .zip file to your desktop. When it's unzipped, it will create a folder named "ExternalIcon" on your desktop.
  4. Double-click on the ExternalIcon folder. It will open a Windows Explorer showing a folder named, Autorun, and a file named, Autorun.inf.Double-click on My Computer and it will open.
  5. Double-click on the driver letter that represents the Western Digital drive you want the icon on and it will open.
  6. Highlight the Autorun folder and the Autorun.inf file. Right-click on them, and left-click on Cut when the Menu appears.
  7. Right-click in the open space of the drive that you opened in the new Explorer window, and then left-click on Paste.
  8. Close both Explorer windows, safely remove the external hard drive by using the Safely Remove icon in the system tray, shut down the computer, and unplug the external drive from the computer.
  9. After you reboot into Windows, reconnect the external drive to the computer again, and the Western Digital Icon should now be displayed with the drive letter in My Computer.

If these steps do not correct the problem, you will need to re-format your External Hard Drive ***WARNING*** FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WILL ERASE, YOU WILL LOSE, ALL DATA

How do you back up files


Connect the hard drive to your PC with the USB cable, go to the 'my computer' page and click on the Seagate drive's icon to open it. Minimise the Seagate window and open the folder on your PC where the files are, then re-open the Seagate window, and then reduce it with the double square icon at top right of the page. Then you can just 'drag and drop' the files to copy the files straight onto the drive, or first make a folder on the Seagate to put them in. To copy them back to your PC, reverse the process. Hope this helps!

Epson stylus photo R360


I had the same problem and so contacted Epson support. This was the reply, it worked for me.

Step One:

Switch off and disconnect the printer. Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE (this may be named in a foreign language like 'EPSON DRUCKER SOFTWARE' - when you are at this stage and have selected to 'change/remove' this item, a window will appear titled 'EPSON Printer Utility' - above the icons of each of your EPSON printers will be a 'Printer Model' tab and 'Utility' tab. Please click on one of the printers so it is highlighted, then select 'Utility' - please tick every box listed in the 'Utility' section and select 'OK'. Answer positively to all questions and once the uninstall is complete, you will need to follow the same procedure to remove the other EPSON printer drivers by clicking on 'EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE' again and 'CHANGE/REMOVE'.

 

Step Two:

Open up Windows Explorer or My Computer, and navigate to the drive (usually C) where windows is installed. Browse to the folders called windows/inf on XP, or winnt/inf on 2000. If you can not locate the INF folder please go into the START MENU and select RUN. If there is any text within this box please remove and type C:\windows\inf and press enter. Please be advised that 'C' represents the hard drive on your PC. If your hard drive is a different letter please amend as necessary.

 

Find the files labelled OEMxx.inf, where xx is a number from 00, 01, 02 etc upwards. You will need to double click on each INF file in turn, and if it says "SEIKO EPSON" or "EPSON" within the first few lines, then you need to close the file, and then delete it. Repeat this until all EPSON INF files are removed.

 

Step Three:

Staying in Explorer or My Computer, stay within the windows folder (winnt folder on 2000) and navigate to system32/spool/drivers, and go into the folder named "w32x86". Delete any folders that begin with "epson", and then restart. Once rebooted, empty the recycle bin, and attempt reinstallation of printer, using the instructions below.

 

Step Four:

MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS STILL SWITCHED OFF AND DISCONNECTED AT THIS POINT. Insert your driver CD. Double Left Click on My Computer and select your CD drive by right clicking on the CD icon and select open. When you first open/browse the CD-Rom then you should see various folders. Please browse to the Common Folder. Within here select the Printer Driver Folder then choose the WinXP_2k folder. Run the Setup.exe file and complete the installation as normal making sure you only connect the printer when requested to do so.

 

Step Five:

Once this has completed installing, please remove the CD from the CD drive and reboot the PC. The foreign language tabs will now appear in English.
