NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

How to delete files that are used by other programs in windows XP/Vista?


Hello,

Today tip will help you to delete the files and folders that are being used by another programs and applications, for example a virus affected file. You have tried to delete such kind of files or folders and received the any following messages.

· Cannot delete file: the file is in use by the other program
· Cannot delete file: There has been a sharing violation
· Cannot delete file: The file is in use by another program or user
· Cannot delete file: Disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
· Cannot delete file: The source or destination file may be in use

Normally, a windows restart will allow you to delete such files or folders that are being used by other program, but if you want to manage it without restart your computer then simply you need to download a freeware tool called Unlocker.

You can download this tool for any windows version using Unlocker link. Download it and run the easy setup.

After installation, right click on file or folder that you want to delete and select the option Unlocker.

If your requested file or folder is used or locked by other application then a small window listing of lockers will appear.

Here simply click on “Unlock All” button and now you can easily delete this file.

Thanks,

Bhautesh.

I have a cruzer mini 256MB. After a long time of working fine it now is recognised as a ADIR ROM device and i cannot get to the data. How can I fix this or get it repaired ?


I just expereienced this same issue and this is what I did to resolve.

Step 1. Back up your registry.
Step 2. Look and see if you now have a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 and a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_5150.

Step 3. Delete Both (Note the the latter is the one for your Cruiser but you should start fresh.)

Step 4. Reboot (Make sure you don't have the flash drive plugged in.)

Step 5. Once logged back on, install the flash drive. It will still go thru the routine of hardware1.gif discovery but most likely will not work correctly. You should notice that the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 is back but the later is still gone.

Step 6. Change the following keys to the values indicated..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234\12345678
DeviceDescrip FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer
LocationInformation FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer

and ADD the Following
Driver {36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0013
Service USBSTOR

Step 7
Remove the drive and reinstall. If you are as lucky as I, you may still get an initial message about can't find a driver for the Adir, but then the hardware detection will start anew and correctly recogize as a Cruiser Mini.

WRITE PROTECTION


There are a number of reasons why you are unable to delete files and you need to be sure that the file is no longer required before you delete it. If a file won't allow you to delete it, it can mean a program on your computer is using it.

However, you can try the following...........

The simple way is to reboot your computer in "Safe Mode." To do this, reboot your computer, as the computer is booting, repeatedly press F8 until the option to select safe mode appears. Select safe mode and allow the computer to fully boot. Safe mode only loads all the critical and vital software to support your operating system and not all the programs installed on your computer. When the computer has booted, look for the file you want to delete and try to remove it. If you are able to delete the file, you can now reboot the computer normally, simply by restarting.

If this does not work a more complicated way of removing the file is to use DOS or Command Mode. This will definitely allow you to delete the file but is tricky if you have not used Command Mode before. Command mode will allow you to delete the complete folder so if there are other files in the folder that you want to keep, be sure to either put them in a different folder or move the file you want to delete into its own separate folder. Using command mode is irreversible so be sure you don't delete anything you are likely to need.

I will call the folder you want to delete FRED, just to identify it. Make a note of exactly where it is located on your hard drive, for example
C:\WINDOWS\Resources\FRED

Restart the computer pressing F8 like you did for safe mode.
This time select 'Command Mode.'
This will open a screen that looks old fashioned and there will be a prompt that will say something like
C:\Documents and Settings\Your_name>

Type del C:\WINDOWS\Resources\FRED
This will delete the folder called FRED which will remove your write protected file.
Then just restart you computer normally, the file will have been successfully removed.
