Saving Files


I am having trouble with window 7, saving files and other programs, i have to upgrade 3 other programs that i mostly use. Photo shop(new software)  gives me a message  about not turning off maximize compatibility and can't save files. Family tree won't let me save to pdf. Ordered new update. Way to much time wasted looking for help on the net and can't use explorer 8, as it won't allow me to view pictures in side my email. I have to use google chrome. This is a new pc i received less than two weeks ago.

Error When Saving Files

When i try to save file, i get that error (i have windows 7 (64bit))

You don't have permission to modify files in this network location

Contact the administrator per permission to make these changes"

Then pc saves broken file and then i save again and replace that broken file then it's okay. I'm doing work with pictures, like "save picture as" and thats very annoying (error with every picture) to save file twice. I'm computer's administrator and only user. I don't know what's the problem so i turned here to get help.

Saving Offline Files To A Seperate Partition

When i installed win7 on my vaio i created a separate partition for my data (d:) & reserved the smaller (40gb) c: partition for system files. When i activate offline files, it quickly fills the c partition as it is storing these offline files in the csc folder.

I followed all the advice i received in the folowing thread:

http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7files/thread/6af0cf60-84f6-4e48-b0a1-2780a5fd7b7a
Without success. Apparently i'm not the only one having this probem. It still tells me that 'access is denied' when trying to delete csc folder.

Problem Saving Jpeg Files From Internet

I have been trying to save jpeg file (census image from ancestry.com) and it tells me it is saved on my desktop as i want. When i go to the desktop it isn't there, search facility doesn't find it. I go back to the image and try to save again and it tells me it is already on the desktop. I tried setting up a folder to save to but had the same problem, image says it is saved but it doesn't show and can't be found by search.

I can save images as an adobe and have no problems but i don't get the option to choose how it is saved, it is just as jpeg.

Install Error 2329 And Saving Downloaded Files

Increasingly i have noticed repeated errors concerning file access on windows 7. While uninstalling a program, i will get the 2329 error halfway through, and also errors while trying to save downloaded files (i assume something to do with 0 length files), messages informing me that the file cannot be saved.

I believe that these two errors are connected, and are caused by the slow response of the os and anti-virus software, keeping handles to files open longer than is required, leading to these errors.

 Any thoughts?

Problem Saving / Opening Files In Explorer & Programs

I have problem saving and opening files in windows explorer and third-party programs. I've been having this problem for a couple of months now and it's very annoying for example, when i use the snipping tool in windows 7 the files will not save so i have to take a print screen of that and open it with more software. Also, when i download files in firefox and other things, clicking 'open file location' does absolutely nothing. I assume these two issues are related as they started occurring around the same time.

Saving A Theme

At time i want to change properties of an existing thme and overwrite the original. Well, when i click "save theme" and type in the same name as an existing theme i end up with 2 themes with the same name. I would assume windows would ask me if i wanted to replace the other theme. I am then forced to delete the original hoping i'm deleting the proper one. Is this normal? What are some guidelines as to saving themes? I change elements of themes frequently. I don't want to save different themes and end up have hundreds of themes on my system.

Saving An Image..?

I have a problem on saving images from a webpage. Yes, i did right-click on an image and click "save image as. " And a window popped out asking where should i save the picture. But every time i save it on my picture folder, it says "there are no more files. " I tried to save it on my music folder and the same thing happened. So i decided to save it on my desktop, but then a small window popped out and said "the file is not valid. "
I used to think that my picture folder didn't have enough space, but it didn't make sense, because when i copied pictures from my friend's pendrive to my picture folder, it worked. And i also thought that it's the web program that has problems (i was using firefox) but that seemed impossible, too, because this problem also occurred when i used internet explorer.
This had never happened before. This problem just recently occurred about a few days ago.
Help me please!

Ie Problem With File Saving

When i am on the internet, specifically ancestry.com and other such sites, i try to save files to my computer. I try to have them saved to my desktop or documents folder, but they keep getting saved to some temporary folder that i can never find! It is so irritating! When i try to do a search in the start menu, my files never show up, nor does the temporary internet file folder, which i have looked for in all the places they say to look.

What can i do so my computer stops trying to "protect" me by hiding my files? And where do i go to find the ones that are already there?

Saving Images From Internet

I have accessed a family history website and attempted to save a copy of a certificate. The website gives you the option to save the image online and/or save to your computer. In the past i have chosen to save to my computer and navigated to the relevant folder on my computer, given the file a name and hit the save button. Done! This was using windows xp. I could then view/print the file at any time. It was where i expected it to be in the folder i had created for that purpose.

Now i am told i do not have permission to save to my selected folder on c drive. "Would i like to save to my pictures?" Eventually i relented and said yes.

Result, i can only see the picture when i save another image to the folder. In the save window.

The folder says it is empty when i attempt to view the image through the explorer window. It appears i can only see folders not files in the libraries view. I attempted to create a new folder in the my pictures folder so i could organize the images but i can't see files in there either.

How can i fix the problem?

Folder Setting Not Saving

I noticed that folder settings are not being saved after i restart the pc. There are two scenarios.
1. After i installed winamp media player, all audio files default to that program. I will open an mp3 file with windows media player and tell it to always open with this program. It then opens all mp3 files with wmp instead of winamp, but as soon as i restart it goes back.

2. I have an mp3 player which i connect to the pc and device stage opens it up and says that there is a new update for the player. I hit update and the interface changes. This stays like that until i restart the pc. Once i restart it, the interface goes back to the old one and it tells me there is a new update.

Saving Of Favorites Problem

In win 7-64, ie8, everytime i save a favorite, it saves two lines to the folder. One entry is the name i gave it. That entry will not open the site. The second entry is the complete link  it does open the site. For example:

Saved the following with the name i gave it:
Kitchen cabinet finishing

The second line, never adjacent to the first saved line was:
Kitchen-cabinets-and-hardware.com-kitchen-cabinet-finishing.html

The entry of the name i gave it is useless.

How can i solve this problem?

Saving Passwords And Login Id

I have a brand new laptop with w7 home/pr pre-installed. Auto-update is working so it's up to date. I use a zyxel wireless-n router which is functioning fine with all my xp laptops and my w7. Also attached to the network are a wd nas as well as various print-server connected printers. My security software is zone alarm extreme (up-to-date).

The password issue:
(1)  the w7 laptop logs on fine when i startup in windows and to the network. But when i open explorer and click on the nas, i always have to enter the logon-id even though i tell it to save it.

(2)  passwords are not saved with outlook 2003. I've applied every method in kb 290684 and 829918, including the registry stuff. To no avail.

(3)  windows live mail - same problem - causing failures.

(4)  ie 8 - will not accept a modified default search engine setting . . . Related? So now i use firefox but i need ie since some foreign sites do not accept firefox (even in ie mode). There are no problems with accessing internet sites which require logon and passwords. Since the laptop is new i have not tried local applications with password settings. However, until the email is resolved, the w7 laptop cannot become the primary laptop.

I'm sending this from an xp since i cannot logon with a w/live logon on the w7 laptop. Any suggestions on how to fix this "save password" problem are appreciated.

Saving To Network Drive From Ie8

A client system (xp sp3, novell network, non-admin account) here is having issues saving documents from within ie8 to her assigned network drive. (I know more technical details for the network/setup may be warranted but for now i'm hoping someone has seen this or knows a fix based on this basic info).

None of her mapped network drives show up as possible save locations from within the ie8 "save as" dialogue. Her drives are  working fine otherwise; she can read, write, delete, etc. To them from windows explorer and other programs. There doesn't seem to be any further permission issues or drive mapping issues.

In this particular case, the file she wants saved is a pdf. Adobe acrobat is installed and works fine otherwise for viewing, saving pdf docs. The scholastic program she uses insists on launching the pdf from within ie8 when it generates reports for print/view.

Here's what else i know so far: when adobe is launched independently of ie, all of the network drives are available to save to. No issues here. This saving issue applies to all file types, not just pdfs (i tested with an mp3 file too). The pdf issue is just here at the forefront because of its tie-in with ie and the scholastic program that forces ie to handle the pdf.

Is seems to be an issue specific to this user's account permissions and ie8 only. - I installed firefox for testing purposes and from there i can save pdf and mp3 files to all network shares.
There are no settings within the scholastic software to tell it not to launch ie for it's pdf export feature. Even with firefox installed and set as default browser, it spawns an ie window. (Seriously, why would someone program that way?)

I have tried setting the url for the generated pdf to the "intranet zone" type in the security settings of ie. No change. I have confirmed that, as the domain admin, i can saved to these locations from within ie, again: the issue seems account and ie specific.

Clearly there are some work-arounds, but i'm looking for a solution and maybe a explanation to this behavior. A group policy issue? An ie issue? Both?

Saving File To Last Save Location

In xp when i would "save as" a file ie. A pic from the web, the next time i would "save as" it would go to last location that i saved. Can this be done in windows 7 x64, if so how? It has done this but stopped not sure why?

File And Data Saving To External Drive

How Do I Stop Ie8 Saving Login Information?

Ie8 apparently automatically saves login details for saved sites without prompting the user if this is desired. The login details are saved and will be used if the original url is visited again so long as a t least one broswer windo has been open since the last visit.

For example
I log on to etrade www.Etrade.com and sign is with my userid

And password. I then open a second browser window www.Msn.com after checking account details on the etrade window i close it leaving the msn window still open. If i start the etrade url again, even a few days later, i am not prompted for login info just directed straight into account status. This will happen as long as i have at least one browser window open.

As soon as i close all the browser windows the cache is apparently cleared as i am prompted for user id and password if i open the url again. If i log out of the site before closing the account window the cache is apparently flushed for that url, however most people, myself included, would believe that just closing the window is the equivalent of logging off.

Duplicate Photo Images Auto Saving

When saving photos into the my pictures library everything seems fine, then as soon as i view one of the jpeg images (with a number) it then creates 2 duplicate images - these are then identified as vcm_s_kf_m followed by numbers adn presume size of image. I do not want these duplicates, i don't know why they are created or what purpose they serve. Can someone explain what they are and how do i stop them occurring. When i go into my own personal file and locate pictures there are no duplicates there!?

Saving Display Settings And Monitor Position

I currently am running two nvidia graphics cards with 4 displays. I have an 8800gtx running my primary and my tv in the other room. These two displays are cloned and used strictly as a primary display. I then am running a gt220 with my other two displays as extended desktops. One on the left of the primary and one on the right. I have the displays set up correctly and working in the display settings but when i restart, the extended monitors are not oriented to split the main screen. So i have to go back in to the display settings every time and change their positions. I have the latest nvidia drivers installed.

Once again

Extended - primary / primary - extended
 
(Gt220)      (8800gtx)           (gt220)

I just need a way to save this setup so that i dont have to change it every time i startup or restart. I wouldn't even mind if i could have a script that i could run on startup that would set it to these positions.

Internet Isn't Saving Usernames And Passwords

My computer has always saved my facebook logins and passwords so that whenever i went to the site, i would be signed in. It was the same for all of the message boards and emails i used. I checked all the settings, and made sure i checked all the boxes that say "keep me signed in" but they are no longer saving. As soon as i x out of the internet, and then get back on, go to the website, they aren't saved anymore and i have to re type them in along with my passwords.

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

Files Send To Dvd-rw Drive On Network Results In Deleted Files

"send to dvd-rw drive" when the source files are on a network drive results in deleted files! Windows 7 rc 7100. Have a mapped drive to another computer. I opened the folder, right clicked on a group of .doc files. I choose "send to dvd-rw drive". Responded to the prompt of "use like usb drive" or use in a cd/dvd player by choosing the 2nd choice. Then was faced with a prompt that filename.doc is no longer in this location cancel/retry/skip. All the files were gone! Not in recycle bin of either computer.

Programs Files Vs Program Files (x86)

What is the difference between the "program files" folder & the "program files (x86)" folder, in c drive? Various programs seem split almost equally between the 2, after i upgraded from vista to 7, except that internet explorer is in both, meaning that when i "open with" for a text file i get ie listed twice. Can i move everything to one or other of these & delete the other one? Is one for 64-bit and one for 32-bit programs or something like that?

A2c Files Downloaded As Zip Files

If you go to alice.org and try to download one of their image files, ie8 changes the extension from a2c to zip making the file unusable unless the user manually changes the file extension.

http://alice.org/index.php?Page=gallery/amusement park/index

In our school network users are not allowed to change the file extension so that does not work. I found that the user when downloading has to change the file type to all files and change the file extension then. This is a bother to have to remember. When i tried with a different browser (chrome) the a2c file was recognized correctly. The computers in my school are laptops running windows xp. At home my desktop runs windows 7 and the problem is there as well. There was no problem with ie7.

Docx Files Downloading As Zip Files

I am having an issue with docx files turning into zip files when i try and download them in ie8. I have done alot of research on this problem and have looked into the 2 main solutions to this problem: 1) set security settings to "open file based on file content, not file extension" to disable  2) check the mime type table on the web server and make sure the office 2007 extensions are added.

The first step i tried and the file was still trying to open as a zip file. The second one i was only able to ask the vendor because the web server does not belong to me, but the vendor said they were able to get the same exact docx file to download as a docx file and everyone on their end was able to. I am able to save the zip file and rename the file extension to docx and open it, but sadly this will not be an acceptable answer.

I've tried adding registry settings to allow it to open with docx files as well with no success.
I am curious if anyone has any other suggestions for me?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.
