Files Send To Dvd-rw Drive On Network Results In Deleted Files


"send to dvd-rw drive" when the source files are on a network drive results in deleted files! Windows 7 rc 7100. Have a mapped drive to another computer. I opened the folder, right clicked on a group of .doc files. I choose "send to dvd-rw drive". Responded to the prompt of "use like usb drive" or use in a cd/dvd player by choosing the 2nd choice. Then was faced with a prompt that filename.doc is no longer in this location cancel/retry/skip. All the files were gone! Not in recycle bin of either computer.

Files Do Not Appear In Search Results

I am having a problem with two files not being indexed and not showing up in searches in windows explorer (windows 7 ultimate 64 bits).

The files are two jpgs that a friend sent me over email. I saved them in a subfolder in the picture folder and tagged them with windows live photo gallery.

When i search for the pictures in the windows live photo gallery, they show up immediately (i can search by file name or any of the tags). However, when i search for them from the start menu or from the explorer search bar, they are invisible: if i type any of the tags or their file name, they do not show up, even when i am in the folder containing such files (all other files in the same folder are indexed correctly).

I right clicked each file, then properties. In the general tab, i then clicked on advanced and i found out that the checkbox "allow this file content to be indexed [. ]" Was unchecked. I checked it, rebooted, rebuilt a search index, but the files still don't show up.

Is there some other properties i have to look at? Any workaround?

Deleted Files By Accident

I was in recently viewed documents and they were all short cuts to my original files and pictures. I deleted one of them and checked the original location and the file was still there. So i thought these recently viewed were like cookies, so i deleted all 212 of them. Went back into my file folder and they were all gone. Recycle bin was emptied, restore item didn't work either in the recycle bin. I check in system restore but i never backed up my files. All my passwords contained in one word document.

Protect Files From Being Deleted

How do i protect files and/or folders from being deleted?  Our photos and videos are our most valuable possession and they need better protection - from us. We back up to external drives. But, we would also like to "lock" the files to ensure that when we are sorting, browsing, and copying they are not effectively deleted. How do we eliminate deleting and/or moving of files? If possible we would like to eliminate the possibility to delete while still allowing viewing, copying to project folders, tagging and rating. Is this possible?

Microsoft Update Deleted All Files

How do i figure out which update did this so i can get rid of it!Ok, here it is. I am really getting upset with microsoft and their updates! This is the second time their updates have done something to my computer! The first time i had to reformat my computer. This time or rather last night i allowed microsoft to install their updates to my computer. After they were through i turned my computer off to go to bed.

And when i turned it back on, i see a message as it is going to the log on screen that says personalizing your desk top this may take a few minutes and when i logged on to my desk top everything and i means everything that i had saved in my c drive no longer existed! I can't believe it! Do you think system restore will bring it all back? Or what else should i try!

Which Win 7 Backup Files Can Be Deleted?

I've been using windows 7 (and vista) backup for my pcs and laptops to back-up to an external hard drive. The drive has now run out of space and i need to find some room. Windows has automatically created a number of sub-directories on the drive under the pcs' names over the last several months. Can i just delete the older folder(s) to create more space? My concern is that the back-up has been an incremental one and deleting one or more of the older folders will mean that a restore (should it ever be needed) won't work.

Cannot Add Files On Mapped Network Drive

I am attempting to connect to my server via explorer, yet mapping a network drive isn't working correctly for me. I can delete files/directories just fine, although i am unable to upload any files. The error message i receive is: an error occurred opening the folder on the ftp server. Make sure you have permission to access this folder.

Details: the handle is invalid. There should not be an issue with permissions as i can connect via command prompt without problem, and i can delete files/directories so i should have write permissions. I have never experienced this issue with vista before, and the tech support on my host has no idea either. I'm running windows 7 x64, build 7100. I'll upload a dxdiag if more information is required.

Live Sync - Unwanted Restoration Of Deleted Files

For the last three months i have had a recurring problem of deleted files from livesync re-appearing suddenly overnight out of the blue. I can verify that they are in fact gone from the directories of all three of my syncing computers (two on xp, one on windows 7). Then suddenly out of nowhere, 24-48 hours later, i get all the files deleted since january 2010 reappearing in their original directories. It's a huge headache and takes hours & hours to delete again manually.

How To Burn Files To Cd/dvd?

How do i burn files to cd/dvd? I've spent the past hour trying to burn files to my cd/dvd. Even after i erase the disc and tell windows 7 what files to burn it tells me the files already exist on the destination disc or there isn't enough disc space on the destination even after i erase the darn thing.

Then when i finally get it start burning and even during what i perceive as the burning process that balloon keeps popping up telling me i have files ready to burn even though they were burned (at least that was the case the last time) i'm attempting to burn the same updated files that i burned a week ago. Apparently erasing the disc does no good. Am i missing something or is there an easy way to do this? Maybe some third party software would make things a bit easier.

Not Able To Burn Files To Dvd

Problems burning dvds i'm new to windows 7. I have read the instructions for wmp 12 and i cannot burn dvds. I had no problem in vista but this is a trial just getting the files into the player. Drop and drag doesn't work. I finally got the avi files into it but on one dvd player i have a pic and no sound and on the other sound and no pic. I used a dvd-wr, which didn't work at all and a dvd -r, which gave me the results i just stated. At one point, i got a list up of settings but i can't find it again. Both dvd players support divx. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Problem With Burning Files To Dvd+r

I can burn a disc using the "with a cd/dvd player" then when i try to burn using the "like a usb flash drive" option, windows 7 formats the disc asks me to "open folder to view files. This opens another window that tells me to "drag files to this folder to add them to the disc. " I then drag the file from my desk top and it is there, and i click on eject, which gives me "preparing to eject, please wait" while windows prepares the disc for other computers to use (or something like that). The disc is then ejected. Here is where my problems begin. When i put the dvd+r back in, i receive the message option of  "open folder to view files" so i click on it.

This brings the file on the dvd+r to appear. I can open it to reveal its content and i can open and change a document. However, the next time i try to open any of the documents i get this message " d: is not accessible. The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable, " or "this file cannot be found. " I then eject the disk and reinsert it and have to open it manualy. It shows up as needing to be burned, so i click on the folder, and then "burn to disc. " I then get "prepare this disc" click on next and get "there was error burning this disc. The disc might no longer be useable" and it is automatically ejected.

Dvd Maker Avi Files Corrupt

I have just found out about windows dvd maker and decided to give it a go. I tried to insert a file and found out it wouldn't allow me to select an mp4 so i decided to render each scene of my dvd into avi format instead of mp4 but as soon as i try and select them i get this error message:

"0 files were successfully added. 1 file could not be added. The file c:usersedwarddesktopuntitled. Avi is not a supported file type and cannot be imported. "

I installed a codec to try and get it to work but previous to this it came up with a similar error saying that the file might be corrupt.

What can i do as its really annoying me :( i have rendered the video as a wmv and it works but it annoys me because it isn't as good quality as the avi that i rendered.

Dvd Hangs After Loading Files And Starting Windows

Install of windows 7 h. P from dvd hangs after "loading files" and "starting windows"; just have mouse icon on black screen. I am trying to do a clean install of win7 home premium off of 32bit dvd.
Pc is 1gb ram athlon 1700xp zotac nvidia 6200 agp graphics card on a pcchips m810l mb with a 20gb primary hard drive 3gb secondary and lg dvdrom drive. My current operating system is win2k which is why i need to do a clean install from dvd as you cannot run setup from win2k.

First problem was "cannot boot from cd code 5" which i overcame by using "ultimateboot cd" which then allows win7 dvd to load. Now the problem is hang/stall. Win 7 sequence (all on black background) is "loading files" then "windows starting" with the 4 colours to make the flag then check of hard disk then nothing with large mouse icon in the middle of the screen. Cant move mouse and no keys work; left for an hour and no joy, just in case its slow.

I am running graphics through the vga adaptor and also have disabled floppy drive which i have seen as solutions to this elsewhere. Have unplugged all usb devices. Harddisk currently has win2k on it which i expect to reformat when i get that far. Do i need to format it primary disk so its empty first? Secondary disk has all my saved data on it to copy back later (also on flash drive; belt n braces.

Network Files Vanishing

I currently have a network with a 2008 server and a variety of windows xp and windows 7 machines. One of the users running windows 7 has a short cut on her desktop from a folder on a mapped network drive. This folder is used to store faxes from a canon fax machine. For some reason in the morning she is able to see the faxes in the folder. At any random time during the day she will open the shortcut and no faxes will appear in her view. Yet one of the xp workstations next door sees all of the faxes. Once i reboot her pc and log her back in she can once again see the faxes.

I have disabled offline files in her local group policy, i have set the auto disconnect to server to -1 effectively turning off the network drives disconnecting i have set her netlogon batch file to goto servername. Domain. Local-share-name so that it eliminates netbios issues and solely uses dns to find the server. I am at my whits end with these "odd" network interruptions and not sure why various peoples files just seem to disappear and require a reboot to see them on the server again.

Cannot View Shared Files On Network

I have a home wireless network with three nodes, a desktop named desktop hard wired to a wireless router, a wireless notebook named pc-user, and a network printer, also hard wired to the router, that works with both computers. The desktop runs windows 2000 professional while the notebook runs windows 7 home premium. Appropriate folders on both computers are set for sharing. Neither of the users on the desktop, administrator or me by name, require passwords. The desktop can see and use shared files on the notebook.

The notebook shows the desktop as a node on the network but when i click on the desktop icon on the notebook network window to open a desktop folder i get a pop up window that says, "pc-user my name, a block to type in a password and an error message that says logon failure. " No amount of fiddling, creating passwords on the desktop and then using them on the notebook when trying to get into the desktop will work. I keep getting the logon failure message.

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?

A2c Files Downloaded As Zip Files

If you go to alice.org and try to download one of their image files, ie8 changes the extension from a2c to zip making the file unusable unless the user manually changes the file extension.

http://alice.org/index.php?Page=gallery/amusement park/index

In our school network users are not allowed to change the file extension so that does not work. I found that the user when downloading has to change the file type to all files and change the file extension then. This is a bother to have to remember. When i tried with a different browser (chrome) the a2c file was recognized correctly. The computers in my school are laptops running windows xp. At home my desktop runs windows 7 and the problem is there as well. There was no problem with ie7.

Docx Files Downloading As Zip Files

I am having an issue with docx files turning into zip files when i try and download them in ie8. I have done alot of research on this problem and have looked into the 2 main solutions to this problem: 1) set security settings to "open file based on file content, not file extension" to disable  2) check the mime type table on the web server and make sure the office 2007 extensions are added.

The first step i tried and the file was still trying to open as a zip file. The second one i was only able to ask the vendor because the web server does not belong to me, but the vendor said they were able to get the same exact docx file to download as a docx file and everyone on their end was able to. I am able to save the zip file and rename the file extension to docx and open it, but sadly this will not be an acceptable answer.

I've tried adding registry settings to allow it to open with docx files as well with no success.
I am curious if anyone has any other suggestions for me?

Transfer Xp Files Over Other Drive With Win7

Can i have a drive with windows 7 on it and another with windows xp and then transfer xp files over? I tried to upgrade to windows xp sp3 and it messed my system up really bad. Can't get out of safe mode. After several days of trying i finally decided to just go buy windows 7 and a tb+ hard drive.
I currently have two drives. I plan to remove one, stick in the terabyte sized drive, format it and put windows 7 on it.

My questions are: 1. Will i then be able to transfer files from my previous primary drive to this new one running windows 7 if the old primary drive has windows xp on it? Question 2? Will the old primary drive automatically become windows 7 thereby messing up all its files?

Cannot Restore Backed Up Files From Usb Drive

Bought new pc with win 7. Backed up to external usb western digital hdd 1tb. A week later hdd on computer crashed and was replaced. Plug in external usb and it is no longer recognized. Try on two other computers, same problem. (Not entirely unexpected as this seems to happen all the time with external usb hdd's). Download program "recover my files v4 standard", it sees the files and i copy the backup files to my new hdd.

Problem is when i double click the backup file instead of invoking the "restore" functionality it simply treats this file as a folder and drills down to the next level. And that my friends is my problem, are there any attributes i need to set to get the restore functionality to work for the backed up files?

Event Files Showing Up On Hard Drive

Occasionally, a file with the extension ". Event" will show up on my hard drive. Sometimes, it only shows up in one directory, sometimes it shows up in every directory on my hard drive. I can't figure out which piece of software is creating these files, or what they're used for -they are 0 bytes, containing absolutely nothing. Right now i'm doing a periodic search and destroy for these files, but i'd really like to know what is creating them, and how to stop them from being created. Does anyone have any idea what these files are, or what application is creating them?
