In Vista What is actually stored in FileRepository?

Was curiuous about what is exactly stored in FileRepository? it seems to take a lot of space inside the windows folder. i am using Vista home basic and the size of this folder is about 1GB, the exact path would be: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

i would not say that the system is slow, however i have a hang of working on networked enviorment with XP and it is definately faster. my system config would be:
Proc: AMD Turion 64X2 1.90GHz
RAM: 1 GB
HDD 160GB

If your system is slow, then use disk cleanup and defrag very often. The file repository is a collection of drivers for many different devices and programs.

    It is both used and nonused drivers and yes it is the actual file location. Unless U are exceeding 60% of the total hdd space with everything U have on it, the system speed is not effected.

    I recommend a second 250Gb hdd for data and keep only the os on the 160 GB. Also double the ram, it plays a bigger part in the system speed. Keep an eye on the configuration file (msconfig) startup programs, keep it to a minium. Office, itunes, qttask, etc., for instance will have itself loaded on startup when it is not needed. Good practice to disable everything in startup, reboot and then go back and have startup for only what U need.

Tip

Tips for an organized kitchen


As we probably all would rather a clean, organized kitchen rather than a chaotic one, here are some tips that i found very useful for my own kitchen.
Some i kind of gave for garanted, others were actually more useful and creative, but i included them all anyway. Hope you find this tip useful.

Hang.
First thing, i realized that by hanging all that is hang-able i saved a lot of space and at the same time decorated my kitchen. I started hanging colorful cloths, aperones, mats, pot-holders, match boxes, ladles, all in strategic places, where i knew i would need these objects. But at the same time i saved lots of room in drawers and closets. I even found a way to hang small hooks inside my pots closet, and hang there my pots lids. They now happily hover over their other halves, without taking away any useful space.

Lazy Susan.
Another interesting idea that i found online is to place all the objects that leak or that need frequent cleaning, on a Lazy Susan. This method provides at the same time a surface easy to clean, and a gathering location for all the jars and bottles like honey, salt and pepper, jams, oil etc

Store Smart.
There are two ways of storing objects. Be it ingredients or tools, pots and pans or plates, they need to be stored in a smart way.
One option is storing according to type. Grouping similar objects.
All canned food together. All pasta, rice and grains together. Plates, bowls and cups together. Pots and pans etc. This way you will know exactly where to look for something you need and be sure to find it according to logic. This method is very good for big kitchens, with lots of storage space.
Another option is to store according to need. This can either be the main method or it can be added to the previous storing method. It allows you to make sure that all the objects or ingredients that you use the most are easy to find and reach. For example all the sweet ingredients or everything you need for decorating desserts could be stored in a cabinet on the side, while sugar and flour could be stored in a central cabinet, easy to reach, together with salt and oil for example.
Another important thing is storing in good locations. For example plastic bags and wrapping materials should be stored near the fridge, to enable a quick storage of leftovers. Or pots and pans, as well as utensils, should be close to the stove. Kitchen cloths near the sink, etc.

Use Baskets.
Small objects often cause clutter and chaos in open spaces. Use pretty rattan baskets to keep small objects well organized, and improve the looks of your kitchen.

Cart.
Using carts can be useful and pretty at the same time. By using a nice cart you can both easily and prettily deliver foods to the table, and also carry heavy objects from place to place without effort.

R 528 my laptop is problem by c drive in red line today my lape vista window and other drivers by correct with blue


Hi

I think it could be because the hard drive is almost full and not enough free working space on it
because windows needs to have a few GB,s free to use as working space without it it cannot run correctly

could you please go to

start
computer/local disk (c) properties
write down what it says please for
capacity ???GB
used Space ???GB
free Space ???GB

Can you also check to see if you are storing lots of video,s or hundred's of pictures
on the c drive either in your documents or desktop maybe
or have you done lots of backups which could be taking up your space

please check this out for us and come back to us also telling us what operating system you
are running im guessing it could be vista

many thanks

Presario blank screen


I think this might be a common problem caused by windows sleep/hibernate not working (MS never actually got it to work well)
Try holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Wait 10 seconds, then start up again. If you get the same problem, try tapping the space bar repeatedly...
Otherwise your going to need to boot off a windows disk, and do a re-install/repair.

My Dell laptop Recovery(D) is almost full. 418 MB free of 9.99 GB. It includes a file "MedicalD.bin" which I question.


Delete the Media.Bin file and check whether that gets the free space for u...the same file will not show u huge file size(infact its small),but causes this problem..Otherwise disable the System restore option and enable it...this will help in deleting the restore points which would actually occupy a lot of space and thats the reason why the D drive is FULL now...To disable and enable the system restore ..follow this link and follow the same steps to ENable it back again.

Recoverying the Vista


Well, I had the same exact stupid mistake, also on a Lenovo laptop, but a different model. Anyhow, Windows does not allow partitioning the drive which the OS is located on. It spoils the whole installation and damages the OS usually beyond repair.

I would advise you to do what I did- I tried to gracefully surpass the problem by restoring the windows but nothing happened. So, what I simply did was to format the whole computer and then divided the drive into C and D and installed Linux on one partition (all you need is about 10GB, and that's also a lot) and on the second partition I've installed the Windows OS. Good luck with that...

Missing letters and spaces


hello,

This happens because the laptop stores extra charge and cause some issues with the keyboard and mouse like skipping letters and erratic mouse pointers.
By removing the battery and the power adapter you actually drained the charge stored completely. It is a routine operation you need to perform on you laptop once a month.

Hope that help !

Cheers !

C drive depletes


let me explain you exactly
hoping that there is enough amount of space allotted for c drive
  • updating the operating system that is turning on windows updates consumes lot of space for example it can consume an average of 2gb if you are updating regularly the operating system
  • updating the antivirus regularly consumes a lot of space

ok now coming to the point,even if you have set the default download drive as other than c drive. when you download any stuff the downloaded file is temporarily stored in c drive before transferring it to the destination set by you. so,whenever you download any thing make sure there is quite a amount of space.

  • defragment the drive regularly
  • allot atleast 20gb for c drive
  • do not store the downloaded files in c drive
  • make sure you install only necessary updates of your operating system using custom install
  • updating a antivirus weekly is sufficient
