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?

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?

Obex File Transfer

I have windows 7 home premium 32bit. From time to time i am using usb bluetooth dongle(chipset broadcom 2045), which is without a problem detected and all drivers are installed properly by windows. Only problem which i have is with obex file transfer. I can send to my paired phone(nokia 6300) any amount of files in terms of quantity or size, as far as there is enough space on phone memory card, but not conrarywise - from phone to pc.

Always when i send something from phone to pc, what si larger than cca 300-310kb transfer fails. Has somebody an idea if this is nokia problem or problem in microsoft bluetooth stack? Why is it working only one way, from pc to phonelso is there some way how to browse paired phone through windows explorer the same way like with 3rd party software from widcomm or bluesoleil?

File Transfer To External Hdd

External hdd: adata nh-92 500gb
Computer: asus g51jx

I'm trying to move an iso file from my desktop to the aforementioned external hdd, but when i drag the file over to the hdd, i get a window that pops up saying that "the file is too large for the destination file system. " Is the problem really because the file is too big (7. 86 gb), or is there something that might be wrong with my computer? I think it may be because of my laptop because i got this file from my friend's external hdd, so if he could copy it on to his external, why can't i?

Extract From Easy Transfer File

I upgraded from vista home premium  to windows 7 professional and used the easy transfer to move my files and settings which were saved on an external hard drive.

I made the conversion and everything worked fine. Unfortunately, after the conversion one of my files got corrupted(due to my own mistake) and is no longer available. The file "saveddata. Mig" is still available on my external drive which prompts the following questions: is it possible to extract a specific file from "saveddata. Mig"? If so, how would i go about it?

Easy File Transfer Problems

I was converting from windows xp to windows 7. I ran 'easy file tranfer' and copied my 'setting' to a usb stick. They were saved as a folder with the name 'usmt2img. Dat'. This apparently contained no files, but has a size of 353, 724. I ran 'easy file transfer' and copied settings and files to and external hard drive. These were save as a folder usmt2. Unc containing the files  'img00001. Dat', ' img00002. Dat', 'img00003'. Dat and another file of 1kb called 'status'.
 
I installed windows 7 and ran 'easy file tranfer' to restore my settings. It ran until i indicated where the files were located on the usb stick, and the files did not appear in the open folder.
I then tried with the external hard drive, and again in ran  until i indicated where the files were located on the drive, and the files did not appear in the open folder. This time when i typed the file names into the space provided, easy file tranfer' started to run, then said  'cannot open files'.
 
How can i recover my settings? (I have the 'my documents' files backed up at another location, but i need my old e-mails and address book particularly. )

Windows Easy Transfer Can Not Open File

I used vista 32bit windows easy tranfer version 6. 1 to save files to a usb disk drive. I set an encryption password. Transfer completed successfully. 17 mig files created (. Mig, . Mig01-. Mig16).

I tried to recover the files on a new system (64bit windows 7 home premium and again with 32bit windows 7 professional). Wet accepted password, but both attempts fail with the same message "windows easy transfer can not open file".

Old system: 32bit vista home premium service pack 2
New system: either 64bit windows 7 home premium or 32bit windows 7 professional (which ever works with wet).

Undo Windows Easy File Transfer

Somebody asked about reversing windows easy file transfer and the answer was simply to delete the files that were transferred. My question is - when the transfer was made did any of the files make changes to the system. How about using restore instead?

Usb External Hdd File Transfer Stops

I have a dell xps m1530 laptop. I upgraded to w7 pro 32 bit via a clean install from vista home premium. My external usb  hdd (freecom toughdrive pro 320gb) used to work fine, and still does on other computers, including xp, vista and another w7 desktop machine. On my upgraded laptopi get problems transferring large files from the usb drive, the drive light goes out (but i can still hear it whirring), the copy operation hangs, and i can no longer browse through the drive in windows explorer. Bizarrely the drive still shows up in "safely remove hardware".

It also shows up still in device manager, with no warning symbols next to any device. I've tried seeing if the drive shows up in disk management, but that won't start unless i unplug it. My problem seems similar to the well documented problem with external drives on w7 64bit and nvidia chipsets with over 4gb ram. That issue has a hotfix. My system is 32bit though. I tried the hotfix just in case but to no effect. Any ideas microsoft?

Easy File Transfer Won't Open Files

I am upgrading from xp (32 bit) to win 7 home premium (64 bit). I downloaded easy file transfer for xp 32 bit and put my files on a jump drive. I installed win 7 and ran easy file transfer and tried to get the files off the jump drive and it tells me easy transfer can't open the files. Also, i have a clone of my win xp on another hd can i use win 7 easy file transfer to get the files directly off that hd? If so, how? I don't see an option for that in easy transfer.

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

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?

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.
