Shadow Copy Storage File Issue


I noted the amt of free space on my c: drive drop almost 5gb overnight. I had not installed anything new so it seemed a mystery. Windows did install several critical updates. But nothing equaling 5gb. Knowing a restore point was created before the update i checked under advanced settings system protection. And my setting for max usage is at the 4% (23. 24gb)which is where i set it. However, current usage size is 27. 34gb. The difference certainly explains away most of the 5gb of free space i lost overnight.

I did run the shadow space command from a cmd line to be sure it showed the same information, and, it did. I thought as the space reached its max allotted size that it would drop older restore points and not exceed the allotted space? Since i have the max usage set at 23. 24gb. Then how is it that the current usage is 27. 34gb

Volume Shadow Copy Service (vss) Data

Is there any option in windows 7 so that "previous versions"/"volume shadow copy service" data would be written at the end location of a partition?Currently, based on my observation using a defragmenter tool (not windows built-in one), vss writes vss data in the middle location of a partition. And that causes fragmentation problem with a deframentation tool since:vss data would grow to a certain defined size limit, and it would take spaces aggressively in the middle location of a partition.

This would cause fragmentation issue since a defragmenter tool would defrag endlessly with major defragmentation effort if the files changes were often and/or the size of the files was big (more than 1gb). Vss data cannot be defragmented using a defragmentation tool using an online defrag, unless using an offline defrag. This would cause another issue since offline defrag can be done only when windows in a boot mode. Therefore, vss data would cause noisy data in a harddisk and lead to a defragmentation issue. I hope windows would change this problematic behavior of using vss.

Connect Camera As Mass Storage Class - Cannot Download File

I have a problem described in microsoft article id: 814390 whereas i cannot download an . Avi file since it is 1. 7gb. The recommended solution is: "you can connect the camera by using usb mass storage class (msc) instead of ptp. Then, transfer large files by using windows explorer. ""Well, that sounds simple enough, " i thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find ptp or msc in the computer anywhere. Even the help and support center (f1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

Cannot Copy Large File Between Usb Drives

Using windows 7. Have two 1tb ntfs drives and i'm trying to copy a 600g music folder from drive g to drive e. Original file from a third drive was put trough a tag editor and saved to drive g successfully. Have tried copy/paste, drag and drop and send to options. The drag and select show 13k items selected but when released over the intended folder, the copy files window pops up then disappears. Trying break into smaller transfers, was able to transfer half the "a"'s (716 folders) then was only able to transfer single folders.

There are some files where the location was lost in the renaming process or folders that got duplicated which show up as conflicts or options to skip copy or merge two folders in the file copy process at the end of the transfer. I am able to transfer files between the drives, just not this large folder. Western digital support says it's an operating system issue. I acquired the original files from four separate drives  by drag and drop recently with no issues. In compiling all the folders, maybe some errors have crept in, but i can't figure out how to find and eliminate them.

Error When Trying To Copy/paste File From External Drive

I have a new computer with a windows 7 professional 64-bit operating system (500gb drive; 8gb ram). I have two external drives, each of which has a vpc on it. I use the vpcs for training purposes. They are virtually (no pun intended) identical, so one functions as a backup if something goes wrong with the other. One vpc has problems, so i want to overwrite it with the . Vmc and . Vhd files from the other vpc.

I've done this before (on my previous computer, which had windows xp-pro). I successfully copied the . Vmc file and the hard disk 2 . Vhd file, but it won't copy the hard disk 1 . Vhd file. I get an error message (error 0x8007045d) that says there is an i/o device error. How can i fix this so that it will copy the file?

Network File Copy Hangs When Device List Changes

This is a problem with two parts.

Part 1: the first is that if i start a copy of a large file from a network drive to a local disk, and then, whilst that copy is happening, dismount a drive such as a usb drive, then there is a good chance that the copy will stall and never complete. The copy progress dialog remains, and continues to animate, however the actual copy process stops. This has happened ever since i installed win7 ultimate, and after this happens the only way out is to press the reset button. This leads me into the second part.

Part 2: once the copy has stalled, there is no way to cancel it, or to kill the process doing the copy. In the past, with winxp, i would use task manager to kill explorer.exe if something like this happened, but killing this "hung" copy seems to be beyond task manager with win7. From my reading, the act of killing a process is more of a request with win7 whereas with winxp it was a command
.
I have tried to use the taskkill from within a command prompt to kill the hung process. Taskkill reports success, however the hung process remains, as does the copy progress dialog. My last resort is to restart the pc, but when i do this, i get a warning about having to force the process to die. I accept the warning and tell it to do so, but the pc never, ever, ever restarts. My only option now is to press the reset button. This problem has been here since win7 was released. I'd like to see a solution.

1. The copy process should not hang, or if it depends on a stable device list, then the dismount should be forced to wait.

2. If i am an administrator, i should be able to force any process to die.

Are there any other options?

Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive

Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

Not Enough Storage To Process Command

I have major problem trying to install a new wlan pci card. When i first inserted it into the pc i figured the pnp would take care of everything but no so i installed it manually from the cd, this didn't work either so i tried to install it using a driver from the manufacturers website. The installation finishes and everything but windows still goes to look for drivers and when it doesn't find any i go to look in the device manager and i get the following error code:the drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) (but they are)not enough storage is available to process this command.

To find a driver for this device, click update driver. I have about 2, 5gig ram free and about 590 gig of disk space free so that can't be it right?The things i have tried are:running the setup file as administrator, performing a disk cleanup, creating a new account with administrator acces, "telling" windows installer where to find the driver installer. Nothing works. Doe's anyone have any good ideas?

Usb Storage Device Not Detected

I am using a 2gb "memory stick pro duo" plug into a "memory stick pro duo" to "memory stick duo" adaptor, this is then plugged into my trust "all-in-1 card reader" which is plugged into my computer. The computer however does not recognize that anything is plugged in and no error message shows up. In device manager i can see 2 "generic usb hub" which i know signifies the "all-in-1 card reader", but no other devices related to my memory stick show up.

I've tried this on two other computers and they both have the same problem. When i plug my memory card into my camera it can easily see the pictures stored on there. I was going to try to reformat the memory stick but if it can't be detected at all, how would i do that?

Windows Network - Not Enough Storage Available To Process Command

Cannot connect to wireless external drive - "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" error and system running slow after update. I just updated my laptop to windows 7 and am having a few problems. One - everything seems to be running slower (i thought it was supposed to be faster!). More problematic is the fact that i can't access my external hard drive which is networked. It shows it, but when i click on it (it's listed as a z drive), the error "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" shows.

I installed win7 on my husband's laptop the other day with no troubles. His is able to still access the networked drive without a problem and is running great. So great, i went and got it for my laptop. My husband's laptop is running the 64 version of home premium and mine the 32. I used upgrade advisor and fallowed all the recommendations it gave. Including uninstalling itunes. I saved my itunes files to the external drive and can't access them.

I have a hp pavillion dv6000 running webroot security suite.

Import Storage Folders In Live Mail

I am transferring data from an old hard drive to a new hard drive. I "exported" all my messages, which included a lot of storage folders from the old drive to disc. Now i am trying to "import" the messages and it tells me the folders "are empty or in use by another program". They are not empty. I can clearly see that the date transferred correctly. How do i get the storage folders and messages contained therein imported in to windows live mail on my new hard drive?

Missing Storage Files In Live Mail

We recently upgraded to windows 7 and things were running smoothly until today when our storage files disappeared. This has happened before but i simply had to click on edit > move to folder and this caused the move box to appear with the list of the storage files. Now this doesn't happen any more and i have no idea how to get the storage list and the files contained therein back to their rightful place. The settings in layout for storage files show to display them. We have not changed our security in any way.

Computer Cannot Recognize Usb Storage Devices

I am using a brand new hp with windows 7. The first time i plug any thumb drive or my external hard drive into any usb port my computer immediately recognizes it by name and i able to use files on it and save to it normally. When i safely remove it and come back the second time and plug it into my computer nothing happens. I go to my computer and see it is shown as "unknown device". When i use the "trouble shoot hardware devices" tells me it is not recognized and i get this message:

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

 I have tried turning the computer off and rebooting but i still get the same message. I have used the update driver and get the message that the proper driver is installed. I have gone to the "windows 7 compatability center" and my simpletech 160 gb external hard drive is listed as compatible. Please tell me what i can do to make my computer recognize and allow me to use these devices. Without being able to use them so that i can do work at home and take it back and forth to school, i really have no need for the computer in the first place !

I am able to use all my external usb storage devices on xp at school as well as on an old laptop at home with no problem. The only problem i have is windows 7 apparently. Since i have tried three different usb plug n' play devices with the same result (each of which was recognized only the first time i plugged them in) it obviously is not the fault of the storage devices.

Is anyone out there?

Sata Storage Controller Driver Installation

I have a fresh install of win7 prof x64 on an 17/930 system. In trying to fix a problem with media center stuttering, i looked at my device drivers and noticed that the sata ahci controller driver that was installed by win 7 is a generic ahci driver circa 2006 (6. 1. 7600. 16385). My intel matrix storage manager has a much more recent driver available from asus for my p6x58d-e motherboard.
Question - can i install the new storage controller driver now that win 7 is already installed? If so, what is the correct process?

Problem Ejecting Usb Mass Storage Device

I'm having problems ejecting my usb external hard drive. I store my music on the drive and would like to have windows media player readily have access to that library. Thus, when i added a folder on the drive to the music library on my computer, i can no longer safely remove the hard drive. Are there any fixes for this issue since it is highly inconvenient to have windows media player rescan my drive to reestablish my library? I am currently running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit if that's at all relevant.

Outlook 2007 App Data Storage Location

When trying to move outlook. Pst from a vista computer to a win7 computer i had what i thought to be some strange issues. I easily located the . Pst on the old computer in the c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook directory. I wanted to paste this into the win7 computer. In outlook 2007 on the win 7 computer when i look under: tools > account settings > data files, it shows the . Pst file stored in; c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook, exactly the same location as on the vista computer.

However (on the win 7 computer) when i open windows explorer and look at that directory there is no "appdata" folder listed! I kinda solved this by copying my old . Pst to "my documents" and going into tools > account settings > data files and adding it as a new . Pst file then making it the default and deleting the other one. It appears to work fine. What continues to trouble me is why can't i see the c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook directory in windows explorer on my win 7 machine? It showed up just fine on the vista computer.

Event Id 11 When Plug Storage Device Into Usb Port

My equipment is a toshiba tecra a11-s3531 laptop with windows 7 professional, 64 bit. This computer is new within the past two months. Everytime i plug in a usb san disk cruzer 8gb drive or a seagate free agent go 320 gb portable hard drive into any of the usb only ports on this computer, two or more event id 11 errors are immediately logged in theevent viewer. The corresponding message is "the driver detected a controller error on deviceharddisk%dr%".

The % placeholder is different numbers at different events. Plugging into the combination usb/sata port does not generate the error. I have tested this behavior on an exact out of the box factory software configuration with absolutely no modifications except as needed to easily see the events in event viewer.

I occasionally see misbehavior of applications and one recent freeze which prompted me to look at the event viewer. This is when i noticed the event id 11 errors. I have also seen other error messages. I don't know if they are related, so i thought i would tackle the first one that appears time wise. Does anybody know the cause of these error messages?

My gut feel is that it is a driver problem since the computer is new and the error is logged when plugging multiple types of storage devices into any usb only port. The mass storage usb driver appears to be usbstor.sys version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 (win7_rtm. 090713-1255) which appears to be the default microsoft driver with windows 7 professional 64 bit. I have seen other very similar problem descriptions posted on other websites.

Xp Mode Virtual Hard Drive Storage Amount Issue

I installed xp mode last week on my 7 ultimate edition installation. Overall the virtual pc has been working fine, but i have encountered a problem concerning the virtual hard drive. Within the xp mode itself, the vhd shows that it is only using 19gb of space, but in the user accounts within windows 7, the . Vhd file is 60gb. I'm not sure why the virtual pc is doing this, but it is a major problem since my physical hard drive only has 150gb for the 7 installation, and the file cannot be defragged in 7.

Usb Mass Storage Class Devices Fail To Install

I'm having problems plugging usb mass storage devices into my pc (it's a dell xps8100 for what that's worth). Existing usb storage devices in that class (e.g. I had been using them on this particular system for a while) work fine. I have an ipod 5th gen, which  is a usb hard disk from windows' point of view, and it's fine. So are a few sata hard drives that i put into vantec usb housings, as are memory keys i've already used and cf/sd card readers. But. Devices that are brand new to this system. Nope. I have observed the behavior with a (very old) ipod nano 1g, several run of the mill usb keys, and another ide hard drive in a venus ds9 enclosure. All of the above use generic drivers - e.g. Disk.sys, partmgr.sys. When i plug them in, the balloon comes up.

Installing drivers. And then it gives me the dreaded red x. Driver not installed. If i go into device manger and have a look, i always see the failed device as a root device. And usually with an identifier i have not seen before. For example, if i plug in the venus ds9-housed hard disk, a root node appears called "other devices || usb2. 0 storage device" (written exactly like that) with a yellow triangle (driver not installed). With the ipod nano. "Other devices || ipod" and same yellow triangle. Always code 28 (driver not installed) now i decided to get cute and go update driver || browse my computer. And try searching windowssystem32.

It still fails, and reports the following: windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. Usb mass storage device (imagine a usb icon to the left of that)the system cannot find the file specified. Since the "file" is disk.sys, it must be there, otherwise windows would not even boot. S i said, this will also happen with usb memory keys. One more data point, vmware workstation is installed on this system.

If i have a vm running and plug in any usb storage device, it will be installed/connected to the guest os (normal vmware behavior). Under vms, the devices that don't work in the host, work fine in the guests! So it is not a hardware problem, it's something in my particular windows 7 installation that is wrong somehow. (Vms i tested were win 7 x86, winxp mce, and w2k8. Works fine in all/any of them)so. I've exhausted just about every path i can think of. Nukeing windows and reinstalling is not a viable option for me. Nyone seen similar/have any ideas as to what i can try next?

Chronic Raid 0 Error Messages In Bios / Matrix Storage Console

Chronic raid 0 error messages in bios and in intel matrix storage console. I have had several dell xps computers with raid 0 where within a few weeks or a few months during bootup i get an "error occurred (0)" message regarding one of the two disks under the "physical disks" heading on the screen where it reports on the raid drive. Fter the computer has booted intel matrix storage console gives the message for one of the drives "hard drive reports read or write to it failed"  (says backup may still be possible and to back up immediately because the drive is about to fail).

Dell tech support always says that the problem is either the disk controller on the motherboard (studio xps) or a hard disk problem. Several times they have replaced the motherboard and disk drives or the whole computer. But then within six months the same error message occurs. This time i got a blue screen before the message occurred , but  the computer rebooted ok except it gave the same error message as noted above on bootup and the same message in intel matrix storage console.

I have never had any of the computers fail to boot after giving the error messages, or have any symptom except the error message. It seems obvious that there couldn't have been a problem with that many hard disks, and dell does not acknowledge knowing about any design defect in the raid controller. (The exact same messages occurred with 100 percent different computers).

I wonder if there is not a software problem causing the error message and that there is really no hardware problem. I wonder what i should do when the warranty is up. Throw the computer away?  Live with the error message on the assumption that it doesn't mean anything? If it is some kind of software problem could that still cause the computer not to work?

Copy Of Windows 7 Is Not Original

I saw that there was a new release for my laptop's bios. I downloaded the new bios which is version 208 and installed it using winflash a program for asus laptops for updating the bios. After the installation it said that it is going to restart the computer. But it failed to do it and windows notified me about the problem and said it will search for a solution online. Then i decided to manually restart my laptop. After the restart on the lower right side it said that my copy of windows 7 is not original.

However i am using the 64 bit windows 7 that the asus installed in my laptop. I did not installed any other version. I restarted my laptop again and it asked me to enter a product key. I write down the one that is under my laptop which is for windows 7 home premium 64 bit and it said that my key is not eligible. What do i need to do now? I wish i haven't upgraded my bios.
