File Size Issue


I'm confused. I'm trying to write video files to a dvd. I use sony movie studio 9 pe. It compiles at 5. 4 gb. Yes. It's a long movie i made. To fit it on a 4. 7 gb dvd i used a program to "shrink" it. I now comes in at 4. 2 gb on the hard drive. I can't use sony dvd software to burn it because it says the size is 5. 4 gb when the dvd holds only 4. 7. I know why that is happening. So i' good there. To get around that i tried to use nero 8, it says the file is 4. 8. Again over the 4. 7 gb limit. So i tried using the bundled win 7 dvd burning software. It says the size is 4. 2 and the dvd can only hold 4. 3. Um. What?

I'm on win 7 professional 64 bit on a intel i7 920 processor. Is the 64 bit playing around with the file size? I'm new to 64 bit stuff. I have the latest firmware update installed for the dvd/cd drive. All programs are to their latest releases. I'm stumped.

Cannot Set A Paging File Size

The paging file wont set on the main drive (c:). I get a dialogue box on start up saying that it needs to be set. Each time i try to set it either manually or clicking on 'manage automatically' it wont set and i get the same message on each reboot. It doesn't matter what option i set it always comes back to "no page file" after i restart. This is a new windows 7 install on a new hp desktop. I noticed that several people have posted having the same problem, any ideas? I have more than enough disk space. And i'm using the suggested size.

File Increasing In Size Continuously

I noticed that my c:drive (30gig) was in the red today as far as avail hard drive space. I knew that originally there was at least 10gigs free after installation. My c:drive only houses my windows files. I run on windows 7, 64bit. Here's what i have done:windows. Old was cleaned up long ago installed ccleaner and got rid of all the . Temp files (this cleared up almost 1 gig of space)defragmenting the drive checked for any saved games that were on the c:drive (again games are on a separate drive, but sometimes the saved games go over to my documents anyway all in all this cleared up about 2 gigs of space and got me out of the red.

Afterwards i was at about 4. 15 gigabytes. After minimal web surfing today and only playing 1 game (bf: bad company 2) for about an hour, i noticed that the avail hard drive space went down to 3. 8 gigs!How could this happen, it seems like something is going on in the background, but i just can't figure it out. The windows file seems to be where all the big files are located, but i don't know if i can delete any of those.

Win 7 Backup File Size Exceeds

I'm using the win 7 backup to backup files and system images and i'm running into an issue with space usage. I've selected "let windows choose" option for "what do you want to back up?", And "let windows manage the space used for backup history (33. 20 gb max)".

However, when i look at the actual space being used, it's reporting 20. 3 gb for data file backup and 62. 95 gb for the system image - way more than 33. 20 gb. Any idea what's going on?  And how do i set it to automatically keep my total backup space usage in check?

File Size Limitations And Transfer Problem

I've recently upgraded from vista 64 to windows 7 64, but have encountered a very annoying problem. I can't seem to edit files (mainly . Wav) without the error message saying i don't have enough memory. This is not true seeing as i got 2x 1 tb hard drives and 8 gb of ram. Also transferring files to, for example, my iphone will only work if the number of files is lower than 200 mb in total. The transfer usually stops and i get a time-out message on my phone. As i said very annoying. Has anyone encountered this as well?

Size Errors

I was going to leave teh computer for a while so i set it to sleep to conserve energy. When i returned to teh computer, i found that (when i logged back on), the size of things had seemed to change. (The icons on screen and many of the windows i opened, including aol, were much bigger). I went onto the control panel, on appearance and personalization, and tried to set teh screen size back to small(default), however, the computer seemed to think that it was already on small. I managed to get the icons back to small and some programs are normal, but other are huge windows. Can anyone help me get the size back to normal please?

C: Drive Size Is Becoming Large

I used an upgrade disc to upgrade to w7 from vista (clean install) 2 days ago and the size of c drive (w7) is 116. 52 gb! What is causing it to be so large ? Shouldn't it only occupy 25 gb or so ? The windows old file has been deleted. So what is causing the upgrade installation of w7 to take 116. 62 gb ? ( That is not counting the 14. 65 gb recovery partition the system partition  alone is 116. 62 gb. In total the upgrade took an entire 131. 27 gb. What is wrong?

Window Size Problems

I have the new acer time-line 14" pc installed with windows 7. Recently, the windows size has changed, and i don't know how to fix it! The problem is that the window (to internet-sites, or any other program), are much bigger than before. And is -in a way- partially hidden by the start-line.
To explain better, here's a photo:

http://i46. Tinypic.com/ipuus9.jpg

So you see, at facebook (as an example), is the line of applications, chat and notifications quite hidden. It's not the start-line's fault. Nothing wrong about that. Can anyone help me fix this?

Opening Browser Size

When i open a new browser on ie8 it opens into 2" x 13" window, when it used to open into around a 5"x3" size give or take. This is only an issue in a new browser window or a link, not a tab. When it opens into the 2x13 size obviously i can't see any content until i open it to full size. How do i reset it to open to a size that allows me to see content before opening it to full size.

Hopefully this makes sense.
I'm using vista, ie8 on a laptop.

Print Job Size Issue

We've got a very strange issue. We have a page containing plain text, some of it in tables and some in css layed out divs, and 2 small images (the 2 images have a combined size of 11. 5k). If we print it under vista it produces a 391k print file, which is roughly what would be expected, but if we print the same page under windows 7 it produces a 293mb print file. Obviously this may, once windows 7 gets a wider install-base, start to impact on our network performance. Why would it be doing this?

Window Size Control Issue

My flat screen tv which i also use as a computer monitor via hdmi runs slightly under-scanned and for various reasons i don't want to change that. This means that i don't have visual access to the top rhs and bottom rhs of maximized windows. This makes it difficult to reduce the size of maximized screens. I have had a good look through the help and haven't been able to find a fix.

I thought i was close when i found "windows logo key +shift+up arrow" and discovered that the undocumented "windows logo key + shift + down arrow" also worked . But if the window was maximized then "windows logo key + shift + down arrow" directly minimized the window and didn't reduce the size. Lso i find that if i right click at the top of a window i get a menu that includes a 'size' option but it doesn't seem to work on my stock standard win 7 x64 i5-661 computer using the intel on chip video (gigabyte h57 matx motherboard).

I get a 'move' icon but it doesn't seem to do anything. Everything else, including aero, seems to work. I haven't been able to find any help on this command. By the way it's difficult trying to search help about windows in windows. Is there any easy way to use the keyboard to reduce the size of, but not minimize, a window please? If not are there any other workarounds that spring to mind?

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Therefore, i can't attach the file. I do not want to upload my files to someone else's server because even if it is password protected, i can't assure the security nd privacy of a computer which i don't personally have control over. Is there a solution? Or do i need to go back to using rogers yahoo service? Today's computer capabilities need to be matched by the services provided. Any solutions?

Size Of Windows Image Backup

I have win7 ultimate and i have 26 gb of data to create an image from. I made an image to the hard drive which was about 20 gb. I then immediately made another image to a blu-ray disk but the size of the image is only 10 gb on the blu-ray. Why does the same image vary so greatly in size depending on where you save it. Can i rely on the 10 gb image to be able to restore everything properly? Additionally 6 gb of compression seems about right but 16 gb of compression seems too good to be true.

Cannot Change Size Of Window Or Drag It

Works for one user but not another (both administrators): on a new dell studio 15 running factory-loaded windows 7, the function to change the size of a non-maximized window, or to move it around the screen, by dragging the top or the arrows that appear when placing the cursor at the edge of the window, works for one user but not another. I can't see any difference in the control panel settings under "mouse. " Simply can't figure this out!

Fix For Winsxs Folder Size

I am considering using a 40 gb ssd in a small new win7 system. The only thing keeping me on the fence about this is that the winsxs folder may quickly cause the os to take up well over half the space, due to copying dlls and other files.

Note that i already understand the explanation for the existence of winsxs (whether or not it is a good implementation is not at issue in this post). So do not post links to general information about winsxs. I would like an answer to my questions. Here they are:

1. Is there any fix planned by microsoft for the extreme file size use in this folder, so that win7 will become a more suitable os for systems with "small" data storage (i.e. 60-80 gb or less)?  As of today, winxp actually seems far more suitable than win7 or vista for such "small" storage due to this bloat issue.

2. As i understand it, the total size reported to/by windows 7 for the winsxs folder is inaccurate, in that less physical space is actually being used (due to how file links are counted up, etc. ). Is this true? If so, is there any fix planned for this terrible bug that leaves a good portion of the disk idle and unusable?

Ie8 Desktop Icon Image Size

I am having problems with the size of the image within a desktop short cut icon that was created with ie8. Desktop icons created by other programs are okay. I have already tried going a restore and that did not work. I have done a system repair / upgrade using the install disks and that did not correct the problem. I have tried the ctrl / scroll the mouse wheel to change the overall size of the icon but nothing changes the actual i made within the icon itself. Created a new user profile and still the same.

Now here is the really odd thing and that is i have 16 desktop shortcut icons on my screen and 15 of the 16 are incorrect and 1 is the proper. I have looked at the registry to try and find a link and come up with nothing.

There has to be some way to correct this as at one time the images with the desktop icons were all correct. Also looked high and low through all folders for a possible location of the icon images and come up with nothing. It is as though the actual image within the icon is pulling from the favicon and not a larger image.

The system is a 64 bit and using ie8 in 64 bit is not possible in the adobe flash does not support 64 bit and you spend all your time clicking the mouse to accept images when ever you go to web pages.

Font Size Wont Change / Lines Overwritten

Both in hotmail and in ebay having trouble with the fonts, i can use italics, bold, underline but font size is tiny and i can't change it, both in hotmail when writing a new message and in ebay when writing a description in the "list an item to sell". Also, lines of type already part of a web page are over writing on top of lines;  on one page i had a typed form to answer questions but the last line was typed over the submit box so i could not hit "submit". Is it a mismatch between win 7 and ebay's and hotmail's programs? Or can i fix it? Have already tried control panel- appearance/personalization and on the internet the page settings. What now?

With wmp 11 i had all my album art modified to 646 x 646 pixels using microsoft office picture manager, so when a song was played the album art was displayed full size in the screen which looked great. Is there any way to have now playing album art displayed large instead of a small picture?

System Fonts Small After Icon Size Increase

I decided that i wanted to increase the size of my desktop icons. I held down ctrl and used the mouse wheel to increase the sizes. I also increased the text size in display properties from 100% to 125%. After doing this i logged off then on again to see my changes. I found that the system text was far too big to be a comfortable viewing size. I went back to display properties and i changed the font size from 125% to 100% (the default). When i logged off and on again, the text of the system it was incredibly tiny. It looks like the text size is like 8 or even 6pt. I tried looking the control panel to see if there was anything i can do, but i cant find anything.

System Image Restore When Size Of C: Drive Changed

I have so far have had great success in restoring from system image (as opposed from system restore) for my windows 7 ultimate x64. Some small clarifications:1. On day 1, i make a system image of c: os (windows 7 ultimate) and system reserved partition (100mb). Say on that day, the c: was 100 gb in total size. 2. On any day after that, i modify the c: partition size to something different from 100gb. This could be because i am reinstalling windows 7 and thought to change the partition size or want to change the partition sizes or any other reason. Say, the c: is now 90gb or 110 gb or whatever, but not 100gb which it was on the day i made the system image.

Suppose, i am not happy with the result or feel the need to abort this install, and go back to my system image. 3. Will system image restore now work, considering that the c: is no longer the same size as on the day the image was made?4. Finally, windows 7 makes a system image called 'windowsimagebackup' or something. Do subsequent imaging overwrite this completely if i choose the same external hard drive i made the first image from.

Second, i have seen that if i change the name of the image say to 'windowsimagebackup290510', windows system repair disk no longer recognizes it. What is the way out. I basically want one partition with different system images say 'windowsimagebackup290510', 'win. Backup050610' and so on. But windows 7 restoring has failed for me when i rename the image file?

Text Size Control Effecting Office 2007 Applications

Under win7 pro 64 bit, control panel -> display, you have the option of adjusting size of text and other items on your screen (from 100% up to 150%). This was also an option under winxp, so i am well familiar with it. However, what's different this time under win7, is that now when you adjust text size via this control, not only does it make changes to your operating system text size, but it also effects office 2007 applications such as excel. This is a big problem.

I have many excel worksheets with charts that were created with specific size requirements for presentations. If i now change the text size of the operating system (because i have poor eyesight) this creates a huge problem for me. I would have to go back and re-configure hundreds of individual charts.

Question: is there any way to tell win7 to not change the size of my office 2007 applications when i adjust the text size under the control panel. Is there a registry key somewhere that is forcing this change, which can be disabled.

I had a similar issue with win7 and office 2007 that i was able to fix recently. Win7 was forcing "clear type" fonts in office 2007, and was not offering any option to disable the clear type font. Eventually i was able to find a registry fix that gave me back control. So i'm looking for something similar to take back control of "text size. "
