App Data Folder Have 97gb


Why does app data folder have 97gb? My brand new computer (running windows 7 professional) shows that i have used 272gb. My user name accounts for 192 gb. My music takes up 95gb, but i could not figure out what else could be chewing up a lot of space. When i got to the folders within my user name, i see an app data folder that says it has 97gb. Are there really 97gb in there, or is that pretty much a mirror of my music and other files i have?  If not, where are the 95gb that i can't account for?

I have looked at all other folders under my user name, but don't see any others that have even 1 gb in them. I am guessing it must be a duplication of my music somewhere, but i cannot find it. I would really like to free up that disk space.

Cannot Create Folder In Users Me App Data

Cannot create folder in usersmeappdata.
Applies to: windows | windows 7 | programs

I have an old application that creates a temp folder in usersmeappdataemp

When i log in as a local user, the application has no problems creating the temp folders necessary to run. However, when i login with a domain login (with domain admin permissions) the application cannot create folders.

My domain is running at the windows 2003 functional level, and has schema 47 (2008) installed.

I have tried:

Taking ownership of the folder
Giving "everyone" full control of the profile
Being enterprise admin
Running as administrator
Uninstalling and reinstalling
Making the domain users members of the local administrator group.

None of these things has helped. I am at the end of what i know to do. I currently have a case open with the software provider, but this doesn't seem like a problem with their application, since it works just fine as a local user.

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.

Dialogs Don't Appear On Old App With Dual Monitors

I've just started having a minor difficulty with my old photoshop 7 on windows 7: several of the dialogs no longer appear on screen (e.g. , The size of the image to save 1-12, lightness/darkness, and one or two others); "important" ones - like what to name the file, some add-ins & adjustments - show up just fine. It has not previously had a problem on the win7 system, so i don't presume that it is a problem with an incompatible old photoshop or necessarily with win7.

Have just added a second lg 23" dvi lcd monitor to win7 system, which is the only thing that has changed about the system since before this problem has arisen. Previously, i'd had one of the same monitor on dvi together with an older, analog flat-screen on vga as the secondary. Now, the new, second lg monitor is also on dvi, but unlike the original one, does not register on display properties as being "(digital). "I have tried switching which monitor (primary or secondary) that i display ps7 on, with no change; i have also swapped which of the monitors is primary & secondary, and also switched which ps7 displays on.

None of these combinations results in the dialog boxes showing up. The only other potential problem that i can think of at the moment is that i've added a new dvi cable that is different from the original one. The new cable is a "dual channel" (?) Dvi that has pins for all of the slots in the dvi connector, rather than only for about half of them (a "single channel?").

If anyone's familiar with what fry's electronics sells, these are $39. 95 and $29. 95 cables, respectively, the newer one by hp, the other a monster cable as i recall (like an idiot, i've thrown out the package). I'm going to mix this setup around a little bit and will post what effect, if any, changing cables and/or using only one monitor might have on this problem, but if anyone has a "fix" for it - maybe two "single channel" cables?

Adding Program Icon To Xp Mode App Menu

I installed an application w/in the xp mode virtual pc. After installation, there was an icon in the winxp application folder in my start menu. A few days later, i noticed it wasn't there anymore, but several other programs i had installed had icons there. I'm wondering if there is a tool that will allow an "after-the-fact" creation of one of these startup icons? I looked at the properties of the other shortcuts and see that it is pretty cryptic and contains a unique hex code, so i don't think this is something you can fat-finger.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. For the time being, i just uninstalled and reinstalled, but if it happens again, i'd like to save some time.

Win 7 64-bit App Installations Always Default To Program Files (x86)

I've just recently installed windows 7 64-bit. When i try installing 64-bit applications such as firefox namoroka or google picasa 64-bit the default is always to install in "program files (x86)". The default should be "program files" for 64-bit apps. Shouldn't windows detect that it's a 64-bit application and default the installation to "program files"?

Adding Data Hdd

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on a new hdd - the installation went perfectly. I now want to add another hdd (internal), to use as a data drive. I have been using this drive to store all my data from another installation of windows 7 (32 bit). Whilst i can see all the folders, when i attempt to open some folders (but not all) to access files i receive a message saying i don't have permission. I am the only person using the computer, i.e. I have no additional profiles or anything.

How can i fully access this data drive, with full read/write capability? I will also want to use the same drive when i use it with my windows 7 32 bit installation too. I imagine it is something to do with granting permissions or sharing, but i'm not sure what. Any suggestions?

What Is Data Execution Prevention Program ?

Data execution prevention can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If dep notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you. I have done everything i was told to do to fix this problem and i still keep getting this message. It always says, "internet explorer has stopped working. I don't know what to do.

What is data execution prevention?
 
Data execution prevention (dep) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) code from system memory locations reserved for windows and other authorized programs. These types of attacks can harm your programs and files.

Dep can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If dep notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you.

Restore Application Data Shortcut

I have to admit i did this one to myself.

On the user profile (c:users
Ame) if you turn off the "hide protected operating system files" setting, it displays a number of "shortcuts". If these have been deleted, are there any way to restore them. It seems they are not really shortcuts but junctions.

What happens if i install a program that is still looking for the %application data% variable, it will create a directory on c:users
Ameapplication data instead of placing it on c:users
Amelocalroaming

Any help will be greatly appreciated to save me from myself.

Data Execution Protection Crashes

I was having a problem with repetitive data execution protection crashes when i accessed certain pages - particularly when trying to read my optimum email with a browser. This occurred with both ie 8 and firefox. The last straw was when i tried to renew my subscription for my trend micro internet security. Their app for renewing a subscription automatically started ie 8, which would then trigger a "internet explorer has stopped working . Checking for a solution" window, followed by a "close program" window, followed by a message that data execution protection had been the cause of the stoppage.

However, ie 8 does not close - it just triggers another succession of "checking for a solution, " "close program, " "dep was the cause" messages until i manage to get ie8 to respond to its own close button (the red x in the urh corner). Based on another posting, i started ie 8 as administrator and turned off the dep function - now when i try to renew my subscription, i get a rapid series of "checking for a solution" and "close program" windows, but no dep message. I finally had to renew my subscription by telephone! What can be done to fix this?

Win 7 Is Deleting Data Files

I have a program called password administrator (http://www.Digiquirk.com/) that i keep all my passwords in. It uses an encrypted database located in the program filespassword administrator directory. Upon trying to open it this morning i was unable to log into the database. The database name showed as normal at the started of the program. When i canceled the log in dialog and tried to reopen, i was greeted with a create new database dialog. Now i might suspect the program, but this is the second time this has happened and my backups are also deleted from the program filespassword administratorackups directory.

I've been using this program on xp for years and never had an issue. I've tried to recover using previous version, but they don't exist. I've checked windows defender and avira logs, but nothing. I'm trying to run recuva now, but am probably going to have to go back to a backup from last month.

Any help would be appreciated as this will cause me to go back to xp if no resolution is found.

I am running:

Usb Data Transfer Slow

(win7 pro 64 on amd phenom ii x4, 3. 20 ghz with 4. 0 gb ram)i have tried changing the device settings on both sticks (different manufacturers, both 4gb) to optimize for performance and have rebooted each time. I've tried the transfer from a traditional 7200 rpm drive as well as from a 32gb ssd. Always the same. I have read all the forum post about people who are unhappy with 1. 5 mb/sec transfer rates. At this point, i'd kill for those transfer rates. The files i'm moving are a mix of large and small files and i understand that small files will transfer slower. But surely something is amiss if i can't even surpass 500kb/sec.

Select More Than One Lines Of Data From Different Place Of Page

In windows 7 can we select more than one lines of data which are in different place of the page (not continues lines) through mouse or keyboard and also can we copy all those different lines at a time to paste some other place in a single shot.

- Right now i am unable to select more number of lines which are not in a sequence in a single page to copy those lines of data and paste some where in a single shot.

- Is this concept implemented in the windows 7?

- Is there any provision (method) to select multiple lines which are not continues through keyboard or mouse in windows-7?
