    DB:3.35:Lost My Desktop And Files After A Automatice Update cj




    I knew that my hard drive space was low. I was going to buy an external hard drive to make more space. Friday afternoon when I shut down my computer it was wanting to install an automatice update and I didn't think anything about it so I just left it alone.
    I knew it would shut down after it was finished. Saturday morning when I went to my computer it had my log in screen ready for me to log in and enter my password. When I did it took me to a new desktop (like when you get home with a new computer from the
    store). All my files and icons that I had are gone. My programs are in there but when I click start, programs andclick on a program like itunes it wants to install it like its not already installed. All of my files are not accessable from my log in profile.
    I'm in a panic. I have so much stuff that I didn't not back up cause it just too much stuff. The funny thing is when I go to explorer and click on all users all my stuff is in the c drive under documents and settings... How do I get it to where I can open
    it from my desk top? And have my programs like they were before so I don't have to go back and reinstall them from the beginning? My hard drive is still full so I know it is still in there. I have learned my lesson I will get an external hard drive today.
    Can someone tell me how to fix this? Thanks so much for any help!

    You need to pull the data files off of the computer, starting with the smallest and just a few at a time. Install the hard drive into another computer to do this as it will put less strain on the disk file structure..

    DB:2.87:Lost Desktop k7

    If there is any chance of recovery at all your best bet is Prosoft Data Rescue 3. There is a free trial to see if it can recover what you need. But don't do another process on that drive until you've downloaded and run it. That means that ideally you should use another bootable drive to download and run Data Rescue. Or booted from another Mac in firewire mode. Also, there is always the option of ordering or going to the store to purchase the DVD. Then running from the optical drive.

    Hi,

    I use win7 32bit.

    I have two hard disks, one for regular work(500 gb) other for backup(750 gb).
    I manually and regularly backup my data from work disk to backup disk.

    I have rearranged some regularly used folders on my work disk to different order by type and subject concerned for my ease of use and access but size of the data is same.
    Now I want to take the directory structure of those folders on my work disk and arrange those folders on my backup disk exactly as they are arranged on work disk without re-copying anything just re-shuffling of data to match the directory structure of folders
    on my work disk.

    Is there any software to do this sort of re-shuffling of data in the sub-folders of a folder holding huge amount of data for example 60 gb.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, there is no software from Microsoft to perform the task that you have mentioned. You may use your favorite search engine to look for the third party software which can re-shuffle and re-sort the data.
    NOTE: Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software

    After installing Leopard in my Mac G5, none of the files on my desktop file icons (including the Hard Drive icon) appear anymore. I am afraid I have lost all of my Hard Drive storage!

    This installation has been goofy and has taken 3.5 hours, and it appears as if corrupted. What do I do now (and Tech Support is gone until Monday AM)?

    DB:2.67:Desktop Files And Icons (Including Hd Icon) Is Gone 13

    I am not sure how to try again, since the Finder seems corrupted (it will not open, nor will any desktop icons open- the lack of "seeing" a Hard Drive is most disturbing).

    I will keep trying to shut down and restart, as a few people have told me it may "make" the computer recognize the Hard Drive.

    Thanks again for the suggestions. A launch of a new operating system before a weekend does not seem to be very wise, especially with all of the bugs Leopard seems to have.

    After months of good service, my wireless laptop has started dropping my desktop off the network. My desktop is connected by ethernet. I do not lose my internet connection on the laptop, the desktop just vanishes from the network, and I cannot access my shared files. Rebooting the laptop does not solve the problem, but rebooting the desktop does, at least temporarily. Someone has suggested I shut down both computers, unplug the power to the router for 30 seconds, and then repower. Will I lose all my settings and data, including security, if I try this? Thanks.

    while creating recovery back up on wd 1tb external drive lost all other files after recovery was created how do I get tose files back

    DB:2.60:Lost Files p3


    Hey phenixrizn,

    If the External Drive has been formatted and you need to recover files do not continue use of the external drive. When a drive is formatted the information is not always lost. To recover your files you will need to use a third party data recovery program like EaseUS, Stellar Phoenix, or Data RescuePC. Most data recovery programs are not free. EaseUS will let you scan the drive before purchasing but must be licensed to actually recover the data.

    HP does not specialize in data recovery and I cannot offer you any support regarding recovering lost files.

    I hope you are able to recover your files. I recently went through a very similar issue setting up a NAS drive. I searched everywhere for information that would confirm or deny an HDD would be formatted after installing into the NAS enclosure. Nothing said that it would format the drive that I could find. I installed the HDD and sure enough, it was formatted. I lost over 2TB if information. I was able to recover the majority of the information using a data recovery program but was furious. I contacted the vendor with my frustration, and the directed me to the documentation that stated all drives are formatted once connected to the NAS enclosure. This didn't resolve my issue and only made me upset I overlooked the information.

    In regards to yourdrive being formatted: There is nothing I can say that will ease the frustration of losing important information. The only thing I could do would be find information that confirms or denies the format and partition would happen but I don't feel it's necessary to simply throw a document in a reply saying "Read the part here that says the drive gets formatted and partitioned," because that does not resolve your problem. It only makes things more frustrating. Ifthe information doesnotindicate the drive would beformatted or partitioned, it doesn't change the fact it's already done.

    If you wish to have that statement confirmed let me know what you used to create the backup and I will direct you to the information if possible.

    Thanks.

For some reason I thought it was restoring to an earlier checkpoint, not a full reset. All of my pictures, documents, favorites are gone. My computer is working perfectly fine, with the exception of my lost files. Is there anyway possible to recover all of my files?

    If your computer is running on Windows 7or Windows 8, you can check the "file history" in " control panel". You may find some backup, but you have done a resetting, I think the hope is small. Anyway, the last way to recover lost pictures, documeny from computer is recovery program.

    Hi,

    It may be that your files have accidentally been hidden. To check this, try the following.

    A useful utility for viewing all the files on your PC is called Free Commander, on the link below, as it displays folders that the Operating System normally hides and has a good search function.

    http://www.snapfiles.com/php/download.php?id=10787​2a=7122339tag=601108loc=10

    This is a zipped file. If you don't have an extraction utility installed, download and install 7-Zip which can be used to open this so that you can run the installer. With 7-Zip installed, right click the Free Commander file, select 7-Zip, select Extract Files and click OK. Now open this newly extracted folder and run the installer.

    Once installed, launch Free Commander and use this utility to browse to the location of your missing files - can you now see the files? If you can, right click the first file and select Properties. Remove the tick from the box next to 'Hidden' and click Apply to save the change. Repeat this for each of your missing files. When done. close Free Commander and hopefully your files will now be visible when viewed in Windows.

    Hi OLLeBlanc,

    Padlock appears on folders only if the creator of the folder has exclusive access permissions to it. To gain access to those folders you need to take the ownership.

    I would suggest you to follow these steps and check if it helps.

    Method 1:
    I would suggest you to follow the steps from the below link and try applying permissions to a file or folder and check if you can access.

    Method 2:
    If you want to remove the padlock from the folder, try these steps and check if it helps.

    a) Right Click the folder with the
    Padlock icon and click Properties.
    b) Click
    Security tab and click "Edit" button.
    c) In the popped up box, please click "Add" button and type the name "Authenticated Users", and then click
    OK.
    d) Click
    OK and exit.
    e) Check whether the lock icon is gone.

    Note: If you change file permissions incorrectly, you may not have access to files and folders.

    Hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance or information about Windows, I will be glad to help you.

    Unfortunately you most likely are out of luck.
    Maybe before having re-installed the application, etc. - *maybe* something like Belarc Advisor (which you are welcome to install, run and check the results of now) would have revealed the serial number of the installed application(s) - including CS3. However,
    if you have recuilt the system or overwritten where the product key would be in the registry/etc. - then that option is lost to you (unless you happen to keep system images/backups you could restore to - of course if you did that, you probably would have just
    restored.)
    Your 'subscription' to Adobe was probably nothing more than your email stored with them. Unless you had some account you could log into in the past and see all of you current licenses - that's all it was. You just had an account and had told them what
    products you owned and subscribed to a basic email 'newsletter' centered around what you owned.
    Now - you said you purchased the disc (CDs) for Adobe CS3 - the serial number would have been inside all of that packaging... So I suppose the packaging is lost?
    The serial number is NOT stored on the CD - it is just the installation files. The installation files could be used with MANY different serial numbers and would never know the difference nor care. The serial number upkeep, I am afraid, was totally in your
    hands.
    I have not heard of the 'known issue' that Microsoft Security Essentials would uninstall an application like Adobe CS3 and remove its serial number from the system completely. Even if I had - I would end up at the same point...
    If you purchased Adobe CS3 (one of the suites) and have the CDs - you should have the serial number too. If you have lost your serial number - no matter HOW the system got into trouble and/or the installed version of Adobe CS3 was lost (What would you have
    done if the machine was physically stolen? The hard drive crashed? There was a lightning strike and the machine destroyed? Someone you trusted (or yourself) decided a clean installation would help some other issues and forgot to check that you had the serial
    number first?) - it was your responsibility to keep up with the installation media and serial number for the Adobe product. :-(

    DB:2.46:Live Tv Tells Me Files Are Not Loaded Or Working Properly And No Sound In Other Media Programs d9


    Media Center Live TV not working.

    I use a TV Card and watvh TV through a different system as a general rule. My video suddenly froze and I lost audio. I have no audio in any application, (media center, itunes, etc.) I tried to play live tv through media center and it tells me that some files
    are not loaded or are not working properly and to restart media center (No, there are no error codes or I would have researched those too). After reviewing all sorts of information on these blogs, (uncluding uninstalling Security Essentails from windows update
    which caused a similar problem for other readers) I still cannot get my system to work. I have tried to use the automatice WMC fixes, however these do not even load completely, always stopping at "Cm Module MSDCode.dll". After researching what that was,
    I turned off all my firewalls, blockers, and other security and tried to download again just to make sure my security system(s) weren't blocking the download. No help there. I have read about trying to reinstall Media Center, however, my computerdid not
    come with a VISTA disk - only a rescue disk which would completely wipe my system. Please somebody tel me there is another way.

    DB:2.46:Live Tv Tells Me Files Are Not Loaded Or Working Properly And No Sound In Other Media Programs d9

    Hello Karen LT,
    I suggest that you follow the methods to fix this issue.
    Method 1:
    For the issue related to the sound on the computer, I suggest that you run Audio troubleshooter. You can follow the below link and run Fix-it that will Diagnose and repair problems with sound and audio:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Troubleshoot-problems-in-Windows-Media-Player

    Method 2:
    Reinstall the drivers for the Audio card and the TV Tuner card.
    a. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter.
    b. Expand "Sound and Audio controller", double-click on the entry of the Sound card.
    c. Click the tab "Driver", click "Uninstall".
    d. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter.

    e. Remove the entries related to the Sound card.
    Then reinstall the driver with your driver CD that came with your computer.

    Alternatively, you can try to uninstall the driver from the Device Manager, and then go to the computer or the device Manufactures website download the latest driver
    NOTE: Don’t uninstall the drivers until you have the source to install the drivers back to your computer. Also create a system restore point before you uninstall the drivers.
    Follow the same steps for the TV Tuner card.
    Thanks,
    Irfan H, Microsoft Answers Support Engineer.

I recommend Blackberry Backup Extractor, you will just have to install Mono or use it with Parallels or Crossover. Importing the calendar back to your phone should be pretty easy, just import the calendar into Google then sync back with your device.

    Pclerkin, welcome to the forum.

    Did you do a non-destructive recovery? If not, you will not be able to recover your files and folders without specialized software, if at all. This is why you are told repeatedly to do backups.

    Also, have you searched your system for the files before writing them off?

    DB:2.44:Automatice Logoff 1d


    Hi,

    From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide, Release 7.0(1)

    Setting the Service Parameters

    Set the service parameters to define how the Cisco Extension Mobility service will work across a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster.

    To set the Service Parameters for Cisco Extension Mobility, choose System Service Parameters in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration; choose the server that is running the Cisco Extension Mobility service, and then Cisco Extension Mobility. After you configure the service parameters, click Save.

    Enforce Maximum Login Time

    Choose True to specify a maximum time for logins. After this time, the system automatically logs out the device. Choosing False, which is the default setting, means that no maximum time for logins exists.

    To set an automatic logout, you must choose True for the Enforce Maximum Login Time service parameter and also specify a system maximum login time for the True Maximum Login Time service parameter. Cisco Unified Communications Manager then uses the automatic logout service for all logins.

    Best regards,

    DB:2.43:When Deleting A User, And Saving Files, Where Are The Saved Files ka

    Hi,

    If you selected Keep Files a folder, with the old user name, will be created on the
    Desktop of the account that you used to perform the deletion. This folder will contain the majority of the files stored in the C:\Users\username folder which is the typical storage location for a users documents.

    Yes, but... if you had ever renamed the user account from, say, Fred to Joe, the profile files are still stored in C:\Users\Fred but when you delete the account you are told that the saved files will be in a folder on the desktop called Joe. No, it is called
    Fred.
    This is true in Windows 7 Home Premium and, I imagine, other variants.

    My external speaker isn't working, and someone suggested I back up, reset and restore the files to see if that would work.

    When I restored the files, pictures after a certain date were missing.

    I still have the file from when I backed up but I don't know how to extract pictures from it.

    Any help would really be appreciated as the pictures were from a family vacation!!

    I can go to My computer. The search icon comes on, and it takes an exceptionally long time to find drives A D E and H. C drive and My desktop documents are visible. Also my documents show in plue print. this happened after Windows compressed my files.
    Can this be reversed.

    DB:2.41:Lost Drives In My Computer. 3j

    Hi,

    1. Were there any changes made on the computer prior to the issue?
    2. Do you get any error message? If yes, what is the complete and exact error message?
    3. What exactly do you mean by “Lost Drives”?
    4. Are the drives displayed after it takes a long time?

    Method 1:
    I would also suggest you to refer the article and try to run the “Microsoft Fix it”.
    Diagnose and repair Windows File and Folder Problems automatically
    http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_file_and_folder_diag/

    Method 2:
    I would suggest you to test the issue in clean boot mode.
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: Also, see the section on how to return your computer to a Normal startup mode by following the steps under “Reset the computer to start as usual”.

    Method 3:
    I would suggest you to follow these steps and check if it helps:
    a. Right click on the compressed folder or hard drive and click on Properties.
    b. Under General tab, click on Advanced.
    c. Uncheck the option Compress contents to save disk space and click
    OK.
    d. Click Apply and OK.
    e. Test the issue.

    Method 4:
    I would suggest you to refer to the link and check the drive for errors:
    Check a drive for errors
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Check-a-drive-for-errors

    Note: While performing chkdsk on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive, it tries to repair that sector, if any data available on that might be lost.

    Method 5:
    If you are facing performance issues on the computer, I would suggest you to optimize it and check if it helps.
    Optimize Windows 7 for better performance

    Did you back up your files and data? If not, now you're older and wiser about the need to do so. Sooner or later something wil happen on any computer that you will need to have back up for. Get yourself an external hard drive and a good commercial backup/restore
    program to prevent this from happening to you again in the future.

    Good luck.

    DB:2.40:I Lost My Desktop And Files After An Automatic Update. js


    I knew that my hard drive space was low. I was going to buy an external hard drive to make more space. Friday afternoon when I shut down my computer it was wanting to install an automatice update and I didn't think anything about it so I just left it alone.
    I knew it would shut down after it was finished. Saturday morning when I went to my computer it had my log in screen ready for me to log in and enter my password. When I did it took me to a new desktop (like when you get home with a new computer from the
    store). All my files and icons that I had are gone. My programs are in there but when I click start, programs andclick on a program like itunes it wants to install it like its not already installed. All of my files are not accessable from my log in profile.
    I'm in a panic. I have so much stuff that I didn't not back up cause it just too much stuff. The funny thing is when I go to explorer and click on all users all my stuff is in the c drive under documents and settings... How do I get it to where I can open
    it from my desk top? And have my programs like they were before so I don't have to go back and reinstall them from the beginning? My hard drive is still full so I know it is still in there. I have learned my lesson I will get an external hard drive today.
    Can someone tell me how to fix this? Thanks so much for any help!

    DB:2.40:I Lost My Desktop And Files After An Automatic Update. js

    sewpretty,
    Ok, first thing I would suggest is get the external HD and copy or move your stuff to it. Personally if it were me, I would
    move like the My Documents folder. Get all my pics and music and docs onto the external drive. Now, me being a safety freak, I would try to copy them and then after verifying they are there I would delete from the HD, but that's just me.
    Once they are safe, then I would perform a System restore back to a couple days before the problem and see if that helps. If it does then you can load updates one at a time and see if any of them cause the issue. I would also suggest doing a
    clean boot
    before starting to reinstall updates.

    Post back if this helped or not.

    Start button in the search box, type cmd look to top left, right click at cmd.exe click Run As Administrator press Enter key.
    You will now see a black and white screen. That is your cmd window.
    At the flashing prompt, type this ....... chkdsk /f/r
    It is best if you copy/paste that above command line to avoid typo. There is a space between "chkdsk" and "/".
    press Enter key.
    The window will say something like...( I'm paraphrasing).... it can't do it now, but will do it at restart. Do you want to do so, y/n.
    Type " y " as in yes press Enter.
    Exit cmd window.
    Restart your computer the system will start doing disk check.
    It will take quite some time.... a long time. Just sit back and wait. DON'T turn it off.
    The system will restart when disk check is completed.

    OK, so XP was a whole lot more difficult to get my mismatched cards to run in crossfire (x1950xtx crossfire card, x1900xtx regular card). I could get both cards installed, but catalyst wouldn't give me the crossfire menu. The 1950 install package from dell refused to recognize the 1900 card, but if you install the 1900 driver after the 1950, it would jack up the crossfire option. So the only way to do this is to install the 1900 first, then the 1950. I had to do some interesting stuff to get it to work.

    You need to increase your understanding of your hardware and operating system a bit.

    Windows CE creates a shadowy \Windows folder by default. Most of the items in this folder are EXEs and DLLs that are actually components of your NK file (the ROM file). Since these files are in ROM (they're not really even files, but they look like files),
    they reappear when you reboot.
    The contents of the Desktop are found in \Windows\Desktop. If you choose ROM RAM Filesystem as your Windows CE filesystemany files that you copy to locations like \Windows or \Windows\Desktop after boot are stored in RAM. Obviously when you reboot,
    RAM is cleared and everything is gone. In order to have locations like \Windows and \Windows\Desktop persist, you have to provide a persistent storage location for such files to occupy. I believe that the majority ofdevices that persist files use the
    ROM-only Filesystem catalog option, rather than ROM RAM Filesystem,and mountflash memory at the root. If you do this, everything will be persistent; anything written to \ or \Windows or \Windows\Desktop or \myfolder will be stored in/on flash.
    To make your device work this way you need:
    * Select ROM-only Filesystem
    * Identify the storage device (card, built-in flash, USB drive)
    * Configure your device boot registry to make sure that the storage is mounted *as a drive* during the first boot phase, as root.
    You'll need to read up on mount as root, boot phases, and the driver information for the type of storage device you are using.
