Hi,

The follwing command will get you a complete list of files in your hard drive.

To list every file on your hard drive, you could pull out some combinations with DIR /S to show files in all subfolders, or you can just type in CHKDSK /V.

Doing so will show every file on your hard disk, and at the end, will show you a report of the total disk space, total free space, and more.

Save this report to a text file for later viewing. Type in

CHKDSK /V > DISKREPORT.TXT

Second :

This can be done by th following software which can be downloaded from here

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

I dragged my pictures file into my copy of my picture file from my documents list and know I have lost both files ...pictures all gone !!!


I don't know what operating system you are using, but if it is Windows 7 then the My Pictures folder is in C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Pictures, where C is your usual hard drive letter and <USERNAME> is the name you normally log on with, e.g. if your user name is jsmith then look in C:\Users\jsmith\Pictures

If you still can't find your file then do a search of your hard drive for all files with a .jpg extension (use *.jpg in the search)

Need command prompt for Acer Aspire


The Windows Backup and Restore feature allows you to save files and system images to external backup devices such as hard drives and flash drives. However, backing up files become problematic if the directory your backing up files from isn't configured properly, or if you're having issues with the devices you're backing files to. There are ways to solve or work around backup problems quickly and safely.

Hard Drive b> A backup will not complete if the files you're backing up exceed the amount of space left on the external hard drive. If you're backing up large system files, Microsoft recommends saving the backup to an external hard drive that can hold at least 200 GB. If you're running out of space, you must delete content to create space for others or use another hard drive. Error Codes In some cases, Windows displays the following error codes when it's unable to complete a backup: "0x80070001 (Invalid Function)" or "0x81000037: Windows Backup failed while trying to read from the shadow copy on one of the volumes being backed up." These error messages usually appear if Windows is unable to backup a specific library or if you opt out of adjusting your backup settings and settle for the default settings in the Windows Backup and Restore Feature. Reparse Point b> If you're unable to backup a specific library and run into error code messages, removing the reparse point allows you to complete the backup. A reparse point is a file that contains information about the user on a computer. If it doesn't point to a location that contains some of the data you want to backup, error messages appear when you try to back up your files. Type "CMD" in the Start Search box to open the Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt, typing "DIR /AL /S" and pressing Enter lists the reparse points. Each entry says "JUNCTION," which also means reparse point. The entries also tell you the location of the reparse points in Windows Explorer. If you locate a specific reparse point in Windows Explorer, delete its mounted volume from the device's Properties. Once deleted, you should be able to back up your files. Discs b> If you're backing up files to a disc, you'll run into problems if the discs are non-rewritable and already contain data, or if they are severely scratched or damaged. Non-rewritable discs can only be used once, while rewritable discs can be used to read and write data several times. If the CD or DVD you're using is severely scratched, the optical disc drive spins harder than usual in an attempt to read it. If it's incapable of reading the disc, the backup feature may freeze or display an error.
Windows backup or restore errors 0x80070001, 0x81000037, or 0x80070003

" no boot file name received ", Why did my desktop say this?


First test is put new harddrive in and when it goes to boot press Delete,
for entry to Setup, make sure new hard drive is found in equipment.
System equipment, if so then Put Operating disk in CD drive and check
check boot list , Put CD drive first then save and let boot up. It will automatically load the operating system back in the new hard drive.

As far as your saved material in old hard drive. You can check hard drive on second hard drive cable or with a USB adapter connection to
see if able to boot hard drive up and view files. If it works then you can
drag material from one window the desktop (To drag material just put mouse on file and left click-hold down button and move to desktop it will
automatically copy file to desktop.)

How to copy photos from PC to external hard drive?


How to Copy Files to an ExternalHard Drive

External hard drives provide great storage space for movies, music, picturesand other documents you want to keep safe over time. The drives generally comewith either USB 2.0 or Firewire connectors, so they also offer reliable datatransfers at high rates of speed. Setting the drives up is usually astraightforward process, and copying files to them from your computer is a snap.

1. Set up your external hard drive according to its instructions. The two majorsteps in setting one up are connecting it to your computer and plugging it intoan external power source. 2. Install any drivers that camewith your drive so your operating system will recognize it. If the drivers areoutdated, download and install new ones from the manufacturer's website. 3. Open the "MyComputer" panel. You'll see both your regular hard drive (the C: drive)and the external hard drive listed. 4. Double-click the externalhard drive's icon to open its window. 5. Drag and drop any files youwish to copy to the external drive into this window. 6. Right-click the "SafelyRemove Hardware" icon in the System Tray and eject the drive once you'vefinished copying your files. Read more: How to CopyFiles to an External Hard Drive ' eHow.com

How to use my Toshiba External Hard Drive. There really are no directions for how to use it.


Plug it into the usb or firewire and it will bring itself up on most computers. Kinda like a ipod if u know how to work one of those. But it has the programs to run it on the hard drive.
Or you can open it up in my computer, J drive usally. And use it like a sd card. Just grab and transfer and it makes a copy. Then you can add folders and what not to organize it.

It should bring up a small window with a searching flashlight and files being loaded. It will do this every time you turn it on or use it on another computer. And it needs to do this to activate the drive. It will take like 30 seconds to complete.

On mine anyways it has two save locations. One storage has 32 gigs and is a harder memory, is less likly to lose the information and has the programs to organise and what not the files and folders( if you choose to use it, I don't) and the instruction manuals(read me file) . The other is the rest of the memory.

Acer empowering technology password recovoryThe password is store


Hi.. to find the aimdrs.dat, it is located at PQSERVICE drive/root folder. In my laptop, it is on drive x:\. Please check the drive for the location in your computer. You can access the PQSERVICE, For example:
- go to command prompt (Click start, run, type: cmd)
- type: " x: " (without " ")
- type: " dir " (you will see the file of aimdrs.dat is there)
- you can copy the file to any location.
for example to external flash drive which is in drive f:\
type: copy aimdrs.dat f:\ (the aimdrs.dat file will be copied to your new location, flash disk in drive f:\
- you can open the flash disk and open the aimdrs.dat file by right click on the file and choose open with notepad or wordpad. You will see the password in there. It will say "PD=it's your password".

That's what I was doing with my Acer laptop to get the empowering technology password. I hope you can solve the problem. Good luck.

Dell inspiron 531 freezes up and emits a low buzz from computer


It certainly does sound that way.

Download Speed Fan and check your hard-drive's SMART readout. If it looks bad, back up your files and be prepared for the worst. If however the readings look fine, try defragmenting your system with the assistance of the free trial of O&O Defrag. Running the Complete/ACCESS defrag method will ensure that your files can be read as quickly as possible by the hard-drive without all the fragmentation.

NOTE: You may have to defragment more than once before this issue is cleared up. Severely fragmented hard-drives are never fixed with the first defragmentation.

Let me know if I can help you further, I certainly do hope things turn out good for you.

My maxtor hard drive shows as connected but no icon to connect to see files...


As you have not provided details regarding the equipment and OS involved, this response assumes you are on Windows XP, and the issue is with an external drive. The concepts are the same, however, throughout the versions.

How are you certain that the drive is connected? Double-check this by opening a My Computer window to see if the drive is listed among the various drives of your machine. You should be able to see the drive from there if it is connected.

(1) If it is not listed, it is not connected. Disconnect the drive (likely a USB cable connection?), wait a few moments, and then plug it back in. If the drive does connect, you typically should hear a short "beep" or other notification sound. Then, a window should open asking what you want to do with the material, if there is an autorun feature as is typical with Maxtor external drives. Allow the autorun to complete, and when you are asked what action to take, choose to open a window to view files. This will put you into a My Computer or Windows Explorer window so that you can see the files.

(2) If it is listed, double-click on the drive listed, and the window will open displaying the drive contents, and go from there.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
