Q: extend dat. error?

How do I fix an 'extend.dat' error that has suddenly occurred when I try to open Outlook 2003 on xpsp2 notebook?
I have checked device manager processes and don't see anything unusual there?
I am the administrator and don't understand why this has occurred?
I don't know what file it is nor what causes an 'extend.dat' error.
I look forward to suggestions, thank you.

Preferred Solution: extend dat. error?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: extend dat. error?

I found the fix. My Computer>finding the extend.dat file and press delete and Reboot.
Error disappeared.
Thought that I should post this.
Have a good day. xpsp2

Hi guys,

I've got a windows partition set-up like below:

39MB (healthy EISA config) -> 14.65 GB Recovery (D) -> 43 GB (C) -> 1.95GB (no name) ->91.39GB unallocated

The partitions are set-up in that order. When I click on the 1.95 to extend it / add it to the 91.39GB, I get an error: the operation failed to complete because the disk management console view is not up to date. I've attempted to update it and restart the computer to no avail. Any ideas how I can get my 43GB combined with the 1.95GB and 91.39GB partitions located to the right of it?

If you fill out your system specs, then somebody might be able to help you.

I receive an extend.dat error msg. "an extend failed to initialize. Can't open extend,dat

I have seen some solutions, one being change extend.dat to extend.old by searching through C:\documents&Settings\...

but Vista no longer has documents and settings. I went ot folder options and check show hidden folder and files, and even though vista can't display documents and settings this will show C\users\...

All of this still means I can't locate that extend.dat file.

One another note, I have found that my Outlook version continually crashes and I think its my usage of Word as email editor.

Would a fresh uninstall/install lose all the email content or do I use to do a pst file backup?

A:How to Merge Partitions to Extend C Partition merge partitions to extend C drive

Windows Vista and newer have built-in tools that can resize volumes. See our tutorial for that here.Windows XP and earlier don't have the tools built-in, so you have to use a third party partitioning tool. We have a tutorial for that, too. This tutorial covers shrinking an existing volume to make space for a new second volume, but resizing two existing volumes is substantially similar.

Hi all - I have a Realtek RTL8187 network adapter, which has a short RP-SMA cable on the input, and a short USB cable on the output. I need to extend one or both of these cables to a total of 15' or so. Is one more desirable than the other for extending? Or is it better to split the distance & extend both cables? What's the maximum distance I can go in any case? Thank you!

When i installed Win 7 i seem to have lost the other HD that has XP on it! It does not show up in My Computer! The other 109GB on the same HD as the 40GB Partitoin is doing nothing.

hi all

after a bit of a slog trying to log on here (had to setup a new user as my old one was not sending password resets) im finally on! phew

anyways im after a bit of advice with regards to extending my wireless range.

currently my setup is as follows

phone line > netgear ADSL2+ wireless router (834gv4 iirc)> eithernet cable to my pc (out of range)

however the other day I came across a netgear DG834GT super wireless adsl router.

does anyone know how I can set the DG834GT to act as a extender or repeater (not sure on the correct terminology here)

all I want to do is extend the signal to the few rooms that dont get it.


A:How to extend my wireless..?

What you need to do is setup the 2nd router as an access point. You run an ethernet cable from your first router (the one hooked up to the dsl modem) to the 2nd router but before you do thaqt configure the 2nd as an access point.. Also make sure the set it to a different channel and the same SSID. I can not give you specific instructions or even know for sure the the 834GT is capable but that is what you need to extend your range.

My C drive was dying, so I replaced it and did a bare metal restore from a backup with ShadowProtect. All went well, except that now when I click "Computer" to view the drives, it tells me that the new C drive is only 698 GB (which was the capacity of the older drive). The new one is bigger (2 TB).
I'm trying to change the partition (there's only one) to a bigger size, using Disk Management in Windows, but it's not working. In the upper part of the dialogue where it lists the drives, it's reporting the incorrect amount of space (698 GB). But in the lower dialogue where it shows the partitions, it's showing the correct size of the new drive - 1863 GB. It all shows up as a Primary Partition; there's no Unallocated Space. If I rt-click and try to extend the volume, that option is grayed out.
One forum says that if you convert the disk to a dynamic disk it will then let you extend the volume. But it won't let me do that either - it tells me there's not enough space available to convert it.
How can I make Windows see the full size of the new drive?

A:Can't extend a partition

I'd say that you need to consult your Shadow Protect documentation on how it works.

Hello all,

I am having a problem that I hope someone here can help me with. I had to recently replace the hard drive in my laptop with a larger one (the old one was 30gb, the new one is 250gb). I managed to do that successfully (surprising to me as I am not tech savvy), yet when I go into disk management, I cannot extend C drive, as it isn't contiguous with the unallocated space. At the moment, my partitions look like this:

|C: 29.35gb|E: HP Recovery 6.36gb|F: OS Tools 1.55gb|Unallocated Space 260.82gb|

With the above scenario, the extend volume option is greyed out on drive C, so how do I go about getting around that?

Thank you in advance for your help here.

Oh, and I'm running Windows Vista Home Edition 32bit if that helps.

Hi All,
Just been reading the Outlook Contacts thread and it reminded me that I have a long outstanding query someone could maybe clear up.

I backup my .pst file with my regular backups, in my case it's in my Outlook flr.

But what is the Extend.dat file that's there also?


Later: this is what I found:
The Extend.dat file is a binary file that caches registry entries for third-party product extensions.

More important, it doesn't need to be backed up because if you rename or delete it, it will be recreated the next time Outlook starts.

I'll leave this thread here in case anybody else searches for Extend.Dat

I need to extend the data range of a collection of embedded charts on a worksheet. I saw the Extend method, but I really want this procedure to extend the series based on it's current source data values. I'm adding a new row of data each week, so I need each chart to extend it's data source by +1 row. I could not find a good example that used the existing range + 1 row.

Any help is appreciated.

Sub UpdateChartData()

ChtObj.Chart.SeriesCollection.Extend Source:=Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A6:C6")
Next ChtObj

End Sub

A:Extend a set of charts...

Welcome to the board. Which version of which program are you using?

In Excel, this can be done without VBA by naming the source data range using a dynamic formula. Whether this method would suit depends on how you're set up so far.

Download & open the attached file. Press F5, type:


, press Enter. Note the range selected.

Enter 7 in B5 to see the chart expand. Do the F5-thing again.

Click on a column in the chart & note the formula bar, =SERIES(,,DynaChart.xls!Data,1)

To see the formula that defines the range "Data", go Insert -- Name -- Define.

SYSTEM RESERVED - 102 MB NTFS - Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition)
Windows (C) - 106.94 GB NTFS - Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
10.00 GB - Unallocated
Ubuntu (U) - 20.00GB NTFS - Healthy (Logical Drive)

Thanks for any help!

A:HD Partitions don't extend

Windows 7's Disk Management will not let you extend to the left of your U partition, only the right.

You could delete the UBUNTU drive, and then create a new partition, which would include the 10GB you took off C.

Or you could get hold of third-party disk management software that will let you move the U partition, and then extend it or create a new partition on the 10GB unallocated space then merge it with the U partition.

Acronis do trial software if you don't want to spend any money.

BTW, it is always a big help if you post a screenshot of your Disk Management window just in case we're barking up the wrong tree.

we are learning about polymorphism which means that we are learning about "extends", "implements" abstract classes and interfaces.

i understand that classes that extend and implement have an "IS A" relationship w/ the supercalss

what i don't understand is the difference 'tween "EXTENDS" and "Implements"

i understand you "extend" abstract classes as a way of code resuability (i.e. not re-inventing the wheel" and i understand that you "implement" interfaces for the same reason except that an interface reuses code for things that are similar but still different (eg. paying an invoice and paying an employee's salary - both are payables)

i also see that a class can only "extend" one class but "iimplement" many intefaces

in my first java class the teacher used "extends" w/ ActionListener and "implements" w/ "ItemListener"
but both are interfaces.
