Importing .pst File From Outlook 2002 To 2007 - Access Denied

Importing outlook 2002 exported . Pst file (using xp, to usb drive), into outlook 2007 (running windows 7. File copied to this laptop, under my documents). File access permission denied.

. Pst file laptop #1:

Exported from outlook 2002
Using xp
Saved on portable usb drive

. Pst file laptop #2:

Runing windows 7
Into outlook 2007
File saved under my documents, on laptio #2

. Pst file "share" set to "owner/user (administrator), everyone, group - full access"
File it self can not be changed from "locked" to "read" or "read/write" or special permissions; by adding user to this file. File access permission (still) denied. Idea: it has to be an issue with "changing ownership or security permissions"

Fresh install of win 7 home edition 64 bit. Office 2003 installed ok after emulating xp. Imported all . Pst information without any real problems except for the archive. Pst file. This file is older and large, so i elected to rename it and attempt to then create a new archive. Pst file based on procedures posted on numerous forums and websites. None of these procedures worked and when i am prompted to archive my new install of office 2003 i am unable to do so.

As best i can tell, i have all the required administrator authorities. I have not changed any registry information as suggested on some websites. Office 2003 has been updated to all current service pack updates. On an identical computer and install in my wife's computer, she can archive by adding to her older archive file, but we cannot create any new archive files in her application either.

Backup Failed, Backup Drive No Longer Detected

Windows 7 kept bugging me about creating a backup, so i finally decided to. I chose to backup the default items onto my d: drive. I let it run, left for a bit and came back. It failed at 70ish%. Tried again. Same thing. I didn't have a whole lot of time left so i decided to just forget it.

I deleted the incomplete backup files on my d: drive (there was a c: backup file and mediaid. Bin) since there seemed to be no use for incomplete backup files.

When i got home and turned on my computer, post took longer than usual. My sata 2 drive was undetected. Sata 2 = my d drive. When windows starts to boot, it freezes when the windows animation is doing it's thing. I tried repairing and restoring from previously known good configuration and still nothing. I used my win7 disk to check for problems, and i even used that to restore to a point prior to my failed backups.

What else could i try? Why would my d: drive suddenly be undetected in bios, and why would a failed backup cause my windows installation to freeze? Edit: i unplugged the data cable from my d: drive and now windows boots. So deleting backup files royally screwed up my d: drive?

How Do I Open A File As A Zip File?

I work with an application that packages files into "zipped folders" (yeah, just zip files), but uses a different file extension. It works exactly like . Gadget (windows gadgets) and . Themepack (windows themes) files work: you can rename them to .zip and open them with the zip viewer.

I want to skip the step of renaming it each time. I want to just associate the files with the zip viewer. In fact i don't need to associate it, just open-with a single time: i know if i can do it once, it will always be an available option on the right-click context menu of the files.

But i can't find which program is associated with zip files. I tried searching the system-32 folder.

Can't Find Win 7 Backup File

Can't find windows 7 backup file, and back and restore utility claims that backup hasn't been run, but drive has been filled. After installing windows 7, i was asked to backup the system. I was in the middle of something, so i clicked yes, assuming i could change the settings later. Now i notice that twice as much space is used on my hard drive (presumably because of the backup), but i can't find any evidence of the backup file using windows explorer, even when i view hidden files. In addition, the windows backup and restore utility claims that i haven't set up windows backup.

I'd like to remove this backup to free-up space, and then set the system to backup to my external hard drive instead. Any idea how to go about this?

(Sidenote: i have blackarmor backup installed, and it ran a backup onto my external hard drive fairly recently, but it doesn't appear to have anything to do with the problem i'm talking about. )

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?

File Open Fails

Since two days ago, some programs will not allow file -> open to work. The window flashes but i see no error message, even with uac at maximum. I can still open a file with those programs in win explorer by either double clicking (file associations still work) or right clicking and choosing the correct program. But once i am in a program i cannot open another file directly, i have to go through explorer once again. For instance, neither ultracompare nor openoffice work, but ultrastudio, adobe readerand ms office work

Choosing A Program To Open A File

I was opening a file and right clicked to open the file, it was a picture file, and used the, "open with. " Command. I selected a program and left the check box below to have that program be the selected program for this kind of file, and all of my files from documents and other non-picture files changed to the particular program icon. All of the taskbar's pinned files/programs like control panel and the file library were all changed to be open by this particular program. It was the windows photo viewer.

I had to restore my computer in order to get it back to using the files in their normal programs. Even my files and programs on the start menu changed. I attempted to change one program back to its original state and left the box checked again, it then changed all my files and programs to this other program. How can i correct this problem so when i have a file i want to use with a certain program i can make that particular program the default but without changing all my other files and programs?

Unable To Rename File Open

I have just got a new computer with windows 7 w/ xp mode, 32 bit operating system. A big part of my job is to review quotes then change them to jobs when orders are received. One part of this is renaming the quote file to an active job file. Yet, almost every-time i try to rename a file, i get an error telling me that the file is open or in use by another program. I know that the file is closed. Why am i getting this error and how can i get it to stop. It is taking me twice as long to complete a project file package as when i had xp.

Open File Security Warning

Whenever i boot up right after i log in, this open file security warning pops up, and also prevents my dell dock from loading. I have a 64 bit dell inspiron laptop, and have been dealing with this for the past 2 weeks after i have downloaded a video file transfer software, and have been graced with this security warning ever since. I even uninstalled the video software to see if it goes away. It says.

Open file security warning
Name: appdataroamingmicrosoftsvchost.exe
Publisher: unkown
Type: application
From: c:users(my name)appdataroamingmicrosoftsvchost.exe
Then gives me two options to run or cancel

And then it asks me by checking a little box if i want it to always ask before opening this file, but it opens this anyway every time i log into windows when it starts up. This is ridiculously annoying and i am on the verge of giving my one month old dell inspirion laptop to my dog as a chew toy and going out and buying a mac just so i wont have to deal with these ridiculous random security warnings that microsoft has plagued it's consumers with time after time with their operating systems. Can someone please help me before fido chews through the hard drive?

Applications Crash When Go To File / Open

The issue started with office 2010. Go to file/open and the application crashes. Excel has stopped working, search online for a solution, or close the program. The issue has now expanded. I cannot attach a file to my email. App crashes. Same thing happens on file save as. I can open a file from explorer. Double click on a file and all is well. File/save works. The problem can be resolved by deleting the user, and re-creating it. But it does not take long for the problem to reappear. I have not been able to identify a specific activity that triggers the issue. Looking forward to a resolution.

Error - Windows Can't Open This File

Windows can't open this file: in windows 7 with ie 8, when i click on an embedded link in an email, i get the message "windows can't open this file: and then there is a long file name is listed. "To open this file, windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs that are installed on your computer.

What do you want to do?" I then select "select a program from a list of installed programs" and use ie, and it works fine. Links within the link work. I select use this program but it doesn't matter, it always gives me this message. I did a system restore and did a ie reset, but i think this started after the most recent windows critical update.

Error - File Or Folder Open Or In Use By Another Program

I am using windows 7 64-bit on an asus laptop, and recently ran into a strange problem. I have a shared hard drive on a desktop pc that stores all of my working files. I often work from the laptop across my wireless network, working on files stored on my desktop hard drive. The desktop is running win xp professional.

When i try and move a folder on the desktop hard drive using the laptop running win 7 i am getting the error"file or folder open or in use by another program, please close the program and try again"
The files are not open on the desktop or elsewhere on the laptop either, but nothing i do seems to unlock these files so they can be managed remotely from the laptop across the wireless network.

I found one forum post that said something about having to unlock the permissions for the file in windows 7? Is this the problem? And if so, how would one go about doing that? I have checked the permissions of the folders themselves, and they are set to full read write access for everyone, so i don't know what i could possibly change. This is a very annoying glitch, having to go to my desktop every time i need to move or delete a file from my shared hard drive!

Also i have had no problems in the past w/ my previous two laptops managing files across my network on this particular desktop drive. Those were running win xp home and media center edition.

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).

Always Use The Selected Program To Open This Kind Of File

In my open with window the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" tick box is greyed out. I have a couple of programs on my w7 (64-bit) pc that will not automatically open when i click on a file associated with them. For example, i have a file which was created in onenote 2003.

When i want to open this file, i double click it and instead of onenote 2003 just loading and opening the file, the open with window comes up asking me to choose a program to run this file. I manually choose onenote 2003 and then try to tick the box opposite "always use the selected program to open this kind of file". But this is greyed out for some reason. And so every time i want to look at that file in onenote 2003 i have to go though this same manual process to select that program to view it.

Open File - Security Warning Messages

How can i get rid of those annoying insipid "open file - security warning" messages that drive me nuts every time i execute a program? I've set my user account control to the lowest setting, but those messages still pop up. Isn't there some way to stop them short of opening every program on the computer and un-checking the "always ask before opening this file" box?
