Installation Stalled At Transferring Files Settings And Programs


I am doing an upgrade from vista to win 7. The installation got stuck on the last step in the list: "transferring files, settings and programs". The progress indicator show 62% for that step. At the bottom it says: "transferring files, settings, and programs (520258 of 688330 transferred)" . It has been like that for the last 3 hours or so. What are my options other than just resetting and hoping for the best?

Transferring Files From Another Hd

My old computer's hard drive had a meltdown 2 weeks ago. I got a new computer with windows 7 on it and i'm just trying to transfer the files from my backup hd onto my new hd. I thought this would be an easy transfer but it keeps telling me "you need  permission to perform this action. You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file"i keep hitting "try again" and nothing ever happens. I just hit cancel and nothing transfers. How do i fix this problem? I'm on the only account the computer has (which is an admin account) and i' getting to the end of my rope with all this.

Transferring Wma Files

When i transferred data, setting etc from old pc (xp) to new pc (windows  7) all files transferred ok except for the wma files from windows media player. When played the music is about a 2 second play then on to next song. Is this some restriction of license? Some of the music was purchased and downloaded online store. The remainder was ripped from cds that i own. The new files appear to be same size of old files. I did use the windows 7 transfer program on new and old pcs. Is there a conversion program to repair files or will all files needed to be downloaded or ripped from cds. The other possibility is i transferred them incorrectly. Any suggestions?

Transferring Outlook Files To Win7

W7 has been installed on an existing system but while files were backed up i don't think it was done in the correct manner. While i can see the . Pst files in both windows. Old & the backup location (external hd) i can't open them or transfer. Likewise if i transfer the windows contacts, windows live doesn't recognize them. Since installing w7 we are also having trouble with the sound or rather the volume. You can hear it out of the rear connection (using earphones)but not through the front or speakers. Sounds can be just heard but volume is too low to understand what is being said but the volume is set on high.

Upgrade Fails At Transferring Files At 60%

I have a toshiba satellite m305d-s4829 laptop. I tried running the upgrade exe. Fails. I can't really catch the error message but it goes to a blue screen, and all i see is the word memory on the screen. This happened like 3 times. I read around on here, and it seems drivers can affect the upgrade process. I go to the toshiba website and download the toshiba upgrade assistant. I run it. It's automated. Does some downloads, uninstalls somethings, and prompts me to run the windows 7 iso.cool.

The upgrade gets around the same point and fails for the fourth time. What gives? I apologize for not being more specific on the error message. It clears from the screen very quickly and sometimes i even miss it. Any help is much appreciated. I rather not clean install. I have many audio production programs and i rather not have to spend days getting my stuff back in working order.

Problem Transferring Files Using Usb Drive

I am trying to use windows easy transfer via usb to transfer files and some programs new computer: i have a 16gb flash drive. When i try to d/l win easy trans file from desktop old computer to the flash drive, dialog box comes up saying 'too large file - open program and delete some files  or change to other program. I can not seem to make either work. Any suggestions?

The machine is working and many of my programs ie; office, quicken, etc are also working, however a number of other programs are not. I thought getting a print out via windows easy transfer would be useful in determining other changes needed. The computer builder may have transferred over as much possible via a hard wire between two computers, i can not find out as as he will be out of the country for a year. (In national guard, guess where he will be for a year!)
 
Question: if he transferred most over via hard wire drive to drive, can i still use windows easy transfer to check out what is left? Any suggestion?

I have been having this problem since the day i got windows 7 and it is really starting to annoy me.
Any time i transfer files through any usb port the computer freezes, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers, the monitor turns off and the computer restarts. This happens when putting films on my hard drive, songs on my phone and syncing my mp3 player so that i actually can't do any of them.

I have uploaded the dump files here:

Stalled Backup Burn Onto Disc

Yesterday, i tried to burn my weekly back-up disc. It stalled , so i canceled it. Today i tried again, was told to put in the old disc. I did and it stalled again when it came time to take out the first disc. I had to shut down and use the paper clip. I tried again with a new disc (the other one had finished). The process got to 63% and hung there for more than 1/2 hour. It never told me to insert another disc, although, after 2 hours or so it must be done. I will have to paper clip it again to get the disc out. I'm assuming i'm 2/3rds done with my back-up (i have a lot of photos).
Why does the program not say anything when it's hung up?

Missing Files And Settings In Win 7

My settings and files have disappeared after loading them in following my windows 7 upgrade yesterday. I also installed stopzilla and did a full scan. Then, i re-uploaded all of my doc files and pic files after my windows upgrade and scanned them in stopzilla. No problem. I also downloaded a trial of photoshop, but now it is also gone. Also, all of my personalization has reverted back to the default settings this happened overnight. How/why did this happen?

Unable To Locate Files After Changing Security Settings

Thought i changed security setting for file, but instead, all files gone. No error messages, but after having "fiddled" with a parameter in file security, the system seems to have altered my administrator profile. It appear as if the underlying file structure/names have been altered, so that previous i had c:usersole, and so on, now i have c:ole. And so on. This means that all my files are out of reach.

However, by starting an old application program from the installed program directory, that program still retains and can access earlier file kept as "recent" file in that application. I cannot copy these files to my new directory structure, as the application will tell me, that the directory (new) stated is not accessible. It appears that my earlier underlying file structure was parsed to eliminate the "user" folder, how can i get it back?

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?

Accessing Files From An Old Installation

I have a pc that i have just built with new parts. I have taken the hard drive from the old pc and installed it as a 2nd drive. I am now having trouble accessing files. Specifically, i'm trying to get into the local data folder in my old user account to get an old iphone backup. When i try to access i get "access denied" and when i try to change ownership nothing changes.

When i go into security properties and try to remove the listing "account unknown(s-5-21-. )" It says it's receiving permissions from it's parent and to try turning off the option for inheriting options. Does anyone know where that setting is? I've tried searching for it, but with no luck.
