In Vista what is exactly 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

Its the list of drivers needed for hardwares that you'll plug later.. try increasing ur RAM if you dont have a video card to decrease PC Lag. XP doesnt need so much memory compared to Vista

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.

Storage problem, pop-up stating have not enough storage on my device

Go to Settings/General/Usage to get a better picture of what is taking up space. Even better, plug into a computer with iTunes, bring up the iPad's "page" in iTunes and look at the bar on the bottom-- it's a nice visual, and if you hover your mouse pointer over each colored bar, it tells you the exact amount of storage you are using. If you see a lot of storage being sucked up by "other", try deleting stored text message conversations (especially ones with pictures sent through SMS text messaging or iMessaging).

If you are getting the message on only those two apps, then they might be trying to store a lot of data on the device or they may be just taking up a lot of active memory.

Other ways to free up space would be to delete any apps you aren't using anymore (games you got bored with, etc.), move your pictures to a computer and delete them off the device, and organize your music with iTunes on a computer. If you have a huge music library, try making shorter playlists and rotating them (sync one playlist one week/month, then unsync it and choose a different one to sync) instead of putting the whole thing on your iPad. Anything you can do to free up space will give those apps a chnae to work better

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.

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.

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


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

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

Where can I get replacement carpets (not floor mats)? The behind-the-dash radiator leaked inside.

Pre-made, pre- cut, replacement carpet will not be found new. But you could try a junkyard.
Most auto parts stores (and even Wal-Mart) carry rolls of replacement auto carpet.

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...

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
install a software called tuneup utilities which you can downnload from the below link
