Bitlocker Message - Do You Want To Scan And Fix Drive


I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit on a 3 drive desktop pc, using bitlocker to encrypt drives d and e. After several weeks without any issues i'm now finding that every time i unlock drive d after booting up i get a message saying there are disk errors and asking me whether i want to scan and fix drive d. Or continue without doing so. If i confirm a scan and fix, the pc will take about 90 minutes to complete the task but then report that no errors are to be found, yet the next time i reboot the machine, exactly the same message appears.

If i continue but ignore the 'error' there's no problem until a scheduled backup to drive e is due, which then fails, telling me it can't backup drive d because there are errors on it:( i've run registry mechanic to fix any registry errors but this hasn't eliminated the problem, and i'm now at a loss to know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions what steps to take to resolve this?

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

Windows will not let me partition, shrink ore expand drives. Error: "bitlocker drive encryption cannot be used because critical bitlocker system files are missing or corrupted. Use windows startup repair to restore these files to your computer. When i go to disk management to shrink my main partition i enter the amount needed to shrink by and that error appears. Even when i use startup repair the error remains. Is there anyway to use disk management without restoring.

Bitlocker Drive Encryption Error Tpm Was Located

Flash Drive Bitlocker Not Recognizing Recovery Key

My flash drive with my bitlocker key died, and my work pc asked me to enter my bitlocker recovery key to boot. No problem, went to the office, got the harcopy of my bitlocker info out and typed in my 48 digit bitlocker recovery key. "Wrong key" reply. I checked, and the recovery key identication on on my hardcopy that i printed out when i installed bitlocker two years ago doesn't match the bitlocker recovery identification currently on the recovery screen. I realize i'm probably screwed, but how would the key change over time without any action on my part?

Dvd Drive Not Recognized Unless Scan For Hardware Changes

I have 2 ide optical drives in my desktop, a sony ddu1612 dvd-rom (cable select in the slave position), and a pioneer dvr-116d dvd-rw (cable select in the master position).

These worked great until i installed windows 7, and actually still work great. The only problem is that each time the computer is booted, the pioneer will not show up until i go into device manager, under dvd/cd-rom drives and "scan for hardware changes" (the sony is always recognized as it should be) - then everything works fine, until i reboot the system.

Is there a permanent way to fix this so that both devices are automatically recognized each boot?

I use quickbooks and backup to their server. I can do so just fine with no problem until i insert a memory stick into the usb drive. The next time i try to backup to quickbooks server i get the message, there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddisk2dr2.

Any suggestions? I have called quickbooks and they don't help because after i reboot i am successful so they say it is a computer issue. I called zt systems tech support and they are no help.

Can I Use Upgrade Disk To Fix A Virus?

I have a lenovo ideapad that runs windows vista home premium. The laptop came with the operating system already installed, so i do not have a clean disk. I have a really bad virus that keeps me from looking at my indexes, doing a system restore or a virus scan with kapersky to do any type of repair. The virus keeps anything related to flash, java, windows media, activex, etc. From running. If i purchase and install an upgrade disk of either windows vista home premium or windows 7 would it fix the problem?  Or, do i need to wipe the entire system and start over with a clean disk? Is there some something that can be done if the operating system is on the computer when it's purchased?

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?

How To Fix Partitions Deleted By Update?

The latest round of updates has wiped four partitions by changing the partition table on windows 7 professional 64-bit! Having been on holiday for three weeks with no net connection, i found a multitude of updates apparently needed when i got my laptop back home. Luckily for me, i downloaded my pictures from the laptop to the desktop machine before doing the updates. (The laptop is fully protected by mcafee, with no reported problems. )One of these has changed my partition table so that only the c: drive is available.

The rest of the [previously allocated space is now apparently 'free space' according to the disk management utility in windows 7 professional 64-bit. Nice one! I now don't have my programs, data, pictures or media partitions. Also, the registry is in a mess as it still thinks that all the programs installed into the programs partition are present, but can't find them as there is no partition! It seems i am left with an install from scratch to sort out the mess - unless someone out there knows better?

Upgrade Vs Clean Install Key Fix

I have a feeling this is just a rant that will fall on deaf ears, but i would hope that someone at microsoft sees this and realizes that windows 7 has not made things simpler. Just about every version of windows since 95 has allowed upgrades. Those discs would require the presence of a previous version before installing, or if installing a fresh version, would simply ask for a key or previous install disk.

I just spent the better part of a day wasting my time to install a fresh copy of 7 that i now can't legitimately activate because my copy is 'upgrade' despite the fact that i own windows vista. This is ridiculous. Is there anything i can do to get my install to ask for my underlying key? Maybe it's time to cut the cord and go to linux, or perhaps just switch to mac. At least they have a straight forward licensing policy that won't leave me hanging.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.

Fix Separate System And Boot Hard Drives

I recently purchased and installed a new hd for my system that was running windows 7. I had purchased the windows 7 digital download installer so i have no install/repair cds to work with. My goal is to replace the old hd with the new one such that the new hd serves as both the system and the boot drive and if i want to i can either remove the old hard drive entirely or wipe it and use it for back up storage.

After installing and formatting the new hd i performed a custom installation of windows 7 using my downloaded installer and selected the new drive as the drive to install windows. After the installation completed i checked the disk management and the old drive (c:) is designated as the system drive and the new drive (z:) is the boot drive. As it currently stands if i unplug the old drive (c:) the attempt to turn the system on it tries to boot from the cd (which i don't have) and windows 7 won't start.

Further it appears that both drives now have windows 7 installed and if i have both plugged in, upon startup it asks what software i would like to run "windows 7" or "windows 7, " after a 20 second countdown it starts up normally. This is more of an annoyance than a show stopper because it adds about 20 seconds every time i start the system.

Any ideas on how to fix the issue? I will try reinstalling windows 7. If that doesn't work my next thought is to burn the digital installer to a cd, unplug the old drive and when it prompts to load from cd to try the burned disk.

Error Message - Access Denied - After Transferring Hard Drive To New Pc

"access denied" error message after transferring hard drive to new computer. I have changed laptops. The monitor went out on one it was going to be $200+ to fix so i bought a new one. For the purpose of information recovery i took the hard drive out of the old laptop, vista os, and put it in my desktop plugged up sata to move the information over to my external hard drive.

I go to the users folder on the hard drive and see the owner profile and the public profile. Unfortunately none of my information is saved in the public profile. When i try to access the owner profile is says: "access is denied. " I feel that this is probably in part to the fact that i had a password on the profile. Is there a way that the password can be deleted from this file through the registry?

Trying the drive as the primary and not a secondary was a failed attempt. The drive would not boot all the way through the startup because of hardware on the desktop. I am at a loss, i have looked on google for a resolution but with no prevail.

Fix Error 651 Problem With Raspppoe.sys File

I have error 651 problems. I have a gateway sx-2800-01 desktop. It came with windows vista premium and was later upgraded with a gateway disc to windows 7. I used an at&t dsl connection which worked fine. When i switched to my current time warner cable modem i have started receiving this error along with a dial up window which reads "dialing attempt 1 . Unable to establish a connection. I also get messages telling me the page i want is not available offline. These are all new problems.

I tried to rename file raspppoe.sys to raspppoe. Old as recommended and i get a window that tells me "file access denied" because i am not a "trusted installer". When i try to click on the link in part 2 of the fix. Shell. Windows.com/fileassoc/0409/xml/redir.asp?Ext=zip i got a web page not a download-able file. I tried searching the web and when i tried to download their fixes i got a high warning about the program. They seem like reputable sites. What can i do? Am i not understanding something about this problem? Why hasn't windows update fix this if microsoft is aware of the problem?

Bitlocker Installed But Not Working

I have windows 7 ultimate, 64 bit installed on my lenovo r61, which has tpm. After installing bitlocker, encrypting the drive and rebooting, the drive shows the 'bitlocker locked' icon but i have unfettered access to all data on the drive without having to enter any password (i wasn't asked to insert a password during installation) or inserting the usb stick containing the recover key generated during installation.

Use Other Application To Scan

I'm using the dutch version of windows 7 home premium. When i click on "scan properties" in the context menu of a scanner, under the tab "events" there are no applications listed to handle scan data. When i press the scan button on my scanner (canon pixma mp250) windows asks which program i want to use but the list is empty. I have several applications that are capable of this, how can i tell windows to use them?

Please note that i don't want to use the manufacturer application, drivers are correctly installed though.

Deleted Encrypted Bitlocker Partition

Here's the clearest description i can can up with:

Was running: seagate 320gb hd -60gb storage partition (d:) -240gb windows & everything else partition (c:) -additional 100mb "system reserved" partitions -hidden? Partitions (not sure, because i was using bitlocker) windows 7 ultimate 64-bit w/256 aes bitlocker encryption on both partitions.

It had been a while since installation, and i was receiving bsods every time i restarted/shutdown. I figured i would do my normal routine: backup all my documents from my windows partition (c:) to my storage partition (d:), delete, recreate, and format the c: partition, and reinstall windows. After installation, i could simply type my password into the d: drive and unencrypted it. I've done it this way dozens (yes, that's accurate) of times.

This time, however, when i deleted the c: partition (using the windows installation disc), all (let me dwell on that for a moment. A l l . )Of my partitions were deleted. After a few brief moments of turrets syndrome, my instincts kicked in, and i shut off all power to the drive to preserve as much as possible. No formatting was done. It simply says that i have 290ish gb of unallocated space.

Using another computer, i ordered and received a 2tb western digital hd. I removed the old hd, installed the new one, and installed windows without a hitch. I attached the old hd using another sata hookup (they are both sata). I have tried using easeus to recover the hidden storage partition (d:). I have found numerous variations of 294gb, 100mb partitions, and even found a partition with 60gb (bingo!) But it won't let me retrieve it.

So here's the bottom line: is there any way i can recover my partition, encrypted or not (i have the key), using my new hard drive and old hard drive? Gimme anything. Program names, processes, something please?

Bitlocker Hangs With Duplicate Usb Key

I am using windows 7 ultimate with bitlocker running on the boot drive. My laptop doesn't support tpm, so i am booting successfully from a usb key. Everything has been working great. Today i bought two 'nicer' 8gb usb keys (they look better on my car keyring). I have tried copying the . Bek file to them, i have tried using the bitlocker manager to 'duplicate' my boot key. But nothing seems to work.

My original key works fine. But both of these new keys hang the computer immediately after windows says "windows bitlocker drive encryption key loaded. Remove key storage media. " My original key is a 4gb one. But that is the only difference i can see. Any suggestions?
