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.)

I want to Fdisk my hardrive because it has become corrupted yet the Volume labels are also corrupted. They read like cryptic binary looking characters so when the progam asks for the volume label, I cant enter it and therefore cant remove the old drive. Beacuse I cant remove the old drive, cant proceed with Fdisk.

Hi my son renamed one of my Removable Disk (H) to some word like fast cat (H). So now I am trying to rename it back to Removable disk (H) but it wont let me. It only holds 11 characters. I can only go as fare as Removable D (H) can anyone help me on this??
 

A:Solved: Rename Removable Disk

Renaming it to nothing should make it revert back to the system's default name of "Removable Disk".

If that doesn't work, try backing up all the data to your computer. Then right-click on the drive and click 'Format'. This should set it back to the default name. Then just copy your files back.

Okay, I have a 150GB FAT32 External Hard Disk. It shows up as 'Local Disk (J:)' in My Computer. I right-clicked it, and renamed it to 'T4 (J:)' but it still shows up as 'Local Disk (J:)'! I tried various names but still it shows up as 'Local Disk (J:)' in My Computer.

So I went to 'Disk Management' to try and change the label from there and, what do you know, Disk Partition (J:) shows 'T4 (J:)' !!!

So, what I want to know is, why isn't the label showing up properly in My Computer when it is correct in 'Disk Management'??

I have two computers, with both operating with Windows XP.

I use Acronis to backup my local disk of one of these to an external hard-drive. The Local Disk is signified by (C:), while the ext hard-drive is labeled as (I:).

However, with my other computer, the Local Disk is (I:), while the ext hard-drive is (C:).

This means that I can recover my saved data to only one of the computers, and not both.

How can I rename the Local Disk and 'Mobile Desk' to have the same label in both computers?

Thank you.

A:Can't rename Local Disk or Mobile Desk.

I don't believe that an external hard drive can be reflected as C:, since C: is the drive letter reserved for system partition or first partition on a drive attached to a motherboard.

An external drive cannot acquire a C: designation, since there is a partition already designated as C: on the system.

Example...when a hard drive containing a single partition which is the system partition on System 1....is attached as a secondary drive on System 2...the hard drive belonging to System 1 becomes something other than C:.

That's the way Windows XP works.

The drive letter assigned any external drive...can never be C:, IMO.

Please post a screenshot from Disk Management which reflects what you have stated...and I will understand better.

I was having trouble with my computer on Friday, it would freeze a few minutes after start up. All programs would be "not responding". I would restart it and the same thing would happen.

I ran Rkill in case there was anything malicious running and nothing was found. I ran Malwarebytes as well and nothing was found. I used combo fix to restore my system to a previous date and the problem persisted.

The system would freeze even at the log in screen if I waited more the a few minutes to log on. Time is some sort of factor.

A:System volume on disk is corrupt? (disk metadata test)

Either windows Vista needs re-installing, a Factory Recovery is required, or the hard drive is starting to fail and therefore needs replacing with a new one.

You can test the hard drive with the drive manufacturer's diagnostic software. You will need to download the DOS version which runs from a bootable CD. The download contains an ISO file for creating the CD. The links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

I have Windows Server 2012 R2 and it is my file server and it auto syncs user's file every minute. I have 3 disks. The primary partition (Disk 0) and two others (Disk 1 & Disk 2). My question does not include the primary
partition.


I shrunk Disk 2 so that I had unallocated space. I then extended Disk 1 using the unallocated space from Disk 2 creating spanned volume on Disk 1 (extended volume on Disk 2). It did not do what I wanted so I want to 'undo' it. Can
I just delete the spanned volume on Disk 2 (space that added to Disk 1)? Or more accurately if I'm going to delete the spanned volume on Disk 2, will it affect my users' files?

Hi,

I have received my laptop with a 250GB HDD partitioned into two primary partitions (well there is actually four with only 512MB called NVCACHE and another of 1GB as EISA Configuration). One of the partitions is a system, boot, page file ... partition containing the OS (Win Vista Home Premium and contains about 35GB space) and programs. The other is a partition for all the data (~198GB). I am now starting to run low on disk space on the OS partition (<3GB) and wanted to add some more space. I tried to use Disk Management but this did not work because there is no adjacent unallocated space on the same disk next to the OS partition. There is only space at the end of the data disk partition, which I cannot move to the OS partition (at least I do not know how).

Is there a way to increase the disk space for the OS partition? Both partitions have following set out:

Layout: Simple
Type: Basic
File System: NTFS (except for the small NVCAHE which is FAT32 and the EISA does not have any File system)
Status: Healthy

So basically (I'll try to be descriptive), I have an Excel file (extension xlsm) on my USB and I right click it, send to --> desktop (create shortcut). I see the shortcut. I right click and attempt to rename it with a different file extension, but the 'Rename' box doesn't show up like I believe it should and the file name changes without the warning. I need to do this for the shortcut I've created, not the file on the USB.

I have 'Hide extensions for known file types' unchecked and 'Display the full path in the title bar' checked, as I believe they should be.

I hope this makes sense and hope someone can help me out here. This has been driving me crazy lately. (Sorry if this is in the wrong section; first post here.)

A:'Rename' box doesn't show up when I rename a file shortcut

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I'm not sure that I understand - so let me repeat the problem in my words:
file on USB drive
shortcut to that file on desktop
the name of the file on the USB drive changes
you want to change the desktop shortcut so that it works with the file on the USB drive again.

If that is what you want, then:
right click on the shortcut
select "Properties" from the context menu
change the name of the file in the field named "Target:"

...or maybe I got it all wrong...

My friend took his computer to Best Buy who ran the restore on it with his main files on a second drive. The drive is now ganked, but I'm working to recover the files if possible.

In Disk Management (XP Pro), I can see that there's a 37GB volume with 20Gb free (looks like his missing files). There's a second volume on the disk that's only 47 MB and it's Active (so I can access it, but there's nothing to speak of there).

The point is that if I click on the 37Gb volume, I can't seem to do anything with it. The only menu option available when I right click it is "Help". If I click the disk itself, I have the option to convert to a dynamic disk, but I don't want to do that without knowing what will happen to the data on there.

When I dig through the properties, I can see data on the 47MB disk, but not the 37 GB. Does anyone know what to do with this!!!?

Hi sassenach01 You can use the Recovery disks that came with your laptop to reinstall Windows on a new hard drive. However, are you sure that your hard drive is failing? We could check it together and see if it is or not. The "System Volume Information" folder is where system restore points are kept, maybe they are just corrupted and needs to be deleted. In order to delete them, right-click on Computer and select Properties. From there, click on Advanced System Settings in the left pane and click on the System Protection tab. Click on the Configure... button followed by the Delete one at the bottom of the window to delete every restore points present on the system.

Hye all!

I ran into this little annoying problem with Windows Vista. I am using Windows Vista 64-bit with Service Pack 2. I have also recently started using Acronis True Image Home 2011. Currently I am trying out the feature that lets me mount a disk drive or disk volume image and use it as if it is a regular physical disk drive.

I have a volume image backup I made earlier. It's named 'Windows system volume C backup.tib'. As the name suggests, this is a full backup of my system volume C.

But if I mount it and assign some drive letter to it, and then try to browse it, I get a prompt from Windows Vista, telling me that I don't have permission or something like that.

You currently don't have permission rights to use this folder.

Click on Continue to access this folder.Click to expand...

That's loosely translated from Swedish, but you get the idea.

If I click on Continue it allows me to view the contents of the folder anyway. So why is it telling me this anyway?

I have well over 5000 folders in my users folder. I won't browse through them all, but I would really appreciate if I could get rid of these prompts. I was thinking, maybe I need to take ownership of that mounted disk volume? Any other ideas?

A:Solved: disk volume corrupted

You will probably need to wipe the partitions from the drive before you can reinstall. Use WUBI for Ubuntu and then you won't need to change real partitions.

Parted Magic disk partitoning tool (Bootable CD image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.

I am having some problem with Vista, So i planned to install it again in few days. But as i friends said that Windows 7 don't support more than 3 Volumes/Hard Disk Partition. Now my problem is that, I have 5 Partitions(I used Disk Management to make new partitions) C: D: E: F: G:(100 GB each) and H: DvD Drive. Now i want to know if can enable those those partitions again after installation (F and G) without loosing the contents/data ?

Can't Stop myself from using these emo (They look nice than yahoo got) ..
Thank you!

A:Volume/Hard Disk Partiton

rahuldev345:
My system has 3 internal drives, 1 external drive; these are divided into 13 partitions; I'm also using a 1GB RAMDrive.
That's a total of 14 "drives" all running very nicely under Windows 7 Home Premium.
I stick a thumb-drive in there once in a while and sometimes an old ZIPdrive, too.
Never had a problem from Windows 7.

Be sure to back up all your Drives before adding/changing/deleting partitions.
There is a free partition manager called Partition Wizard that I use all the time with very good results.
It's much more flexible than Windows' Disk Management tool.
You might want to check it out.

So just a while ago i booted up my pc and i got a disk check notice, no problem, so i let it check it and it gives me the volume check error, so i use a startup repair to see what went wrong and it says that my disk volume is corrupted, so im pretty much screwed for using disk check now, if there is any fix please tell me asap.

A:Hard disk volume problem

Hello neelam64,
I can't read the language in the screen print, but i think it says all your partitions are "Dynamic" type.
I'm no install/setup (or any) expert, but i believe DYNAMIC partitions is your problem and has created a mess.

You should get your partitions setup so they are NOT DYNAMIC, but you will LOSE ALL CURRENT DATA and need to re-install!

Here are some threads that may help:
Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk
what is the difference between basic and dynamic type of hdd volume

hope this helps,

Hello,I am having problems with Windows Vista and don't know what caused this.When I turn on the computer, it brings that loading image with the green bars and then it restarts right after that. It does the same thing when I try to login in Safe Mode.I ran System Repair many times, but it can't fix the problem. When I scroll all the way on the bottom of the report it says "system volume on disk is corrupt." I've also tried command prompt and have tried the following commandsFound these commands by searching on the net and thought might fix the problem so I gave it a shot and no luck.bootrec /rebuild - it didn't give me an option to types yes
then tried bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
ren C:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /rebuildbcdI took the hard drive out, and plugged it on my other computer's external USB device and backed up my files onto that computer.At last I gave up and though I should just do a fresh recovery, but I can't because I can't find the CD-Key. I checked everywhere for the CD-Key -- on the computer, to the CDs that came with the computer, and all the paperwork and couldn't find it anywhere.So does anybody have a solution to fixing this OS, or how I can recover my CD-KEY at least with some program on a bootable CD?Thanks

I ran check disk today, and when it was finished, it says the volume is clean. What does this mean? I've never seen this screen before when I run check disk. The same "volume is clean" message appeared once before, but I didn't tell check disk to run. I assumed it had to do with the dual boot I had(Linux/Windows). Is this a bad thing for my hard drive?

A:Check Disk Says Volume is Clean

It's an indicator that all is well (no errors on the disk) but it's weird that you're seeing it for the first time, if you didn't do anything different.

Maybe the effect of one of those automatic windows "fixes" ?

This is my issue...I have a Toshiba Satellite L3550, AMD TurionX2 64, Vista Home Premium.

I woke up yesterday morning and got a "Windows Error Recovery" Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or sofware change might be the cause.....I tried both "Launch Startup Repair" and "Start Windows Normally" and neither have done anything.

So I tried doing the "Launch Startup Repair" , its asks for a keyboard layout - selected US and hit "NEXT". From there it takes me to (after a few minutes) System Recovery Options - "select an operating system to repair and click Next." But nothing populates in the box. It states at the bottom that "If you do not see your operating system listed, click Load Drivers to load drivers for your hard disks." When I click "Load Drivers" I get a message to insert the installation media for the device and click OK to select the driver. I don't have any disks, will have to search hard to possibly find it. So I instead click the "Next" button...This brings me to several options: Startup Repair (I did this 2x so far, 1st taking 3 hrs) with no success, System Restore (I have no backup point to restore it to), Windows Complete PC Restore, Windows Memore Diagnostic Tool (this is where I found the error stating "System volume on disk is corrupt"), Command Prompt and TOSHIBA Recovery Wizard.

I don't want to loose everything on my computer so tryi... Read more

Hi everyone. Here's a complex problem.

Preface:
While I was on my PC as usual one day, everything froze except the cursor, and I had to reboot. But upon restarting, I was presented with two options. 'Repair (recommended)' and 'Start Windows normally'.
(The following happens every time, and is still valid, nothing has changed).
Upon selecting 'repair', startup repair starts, runs, and it identifies the problem 'System Volume on Disk is Corrupt'. Same is the case when I boot with the Windows installation DVD and try startup repair.
'Start Windows Normally' brings up the 'Starting Windows' screen, it stays there, no animation takes place for about a minute, and then the Windows logo animates in, and the computer restarts.

Please note:
I'll refer to:
New HDD on which I installed Windows: Spare HDD
The HDD with the corrupted Windows: Bad HDD (has 4 partitions, 2 for data and 1 for windows, and 1 system reserved partition). it is 1.5 years old.
Corrupted Windows partition: Bad partition
P.S. I don't have an image/backup of the bad partition.

What I did next:
Installed Windows 7 on a spare hard drive, and attached the bad HDD as secondary. All my data was found to be safe. Except for the partition which is supposed to be the Windows partition. It is not getting recognized as a readable partition. Windows sees it as 'raw' partition, unformatted. Of course, I won't format it.
I installed PartitionWizard and checked the contents of the unreadable partition. All the ... Read more

I dunno why it is showing Windows 7 installed on Disk D:, while it is actually installed on C: ??

Could it be a failing HDD? It's only 1.5 years old, just so you know. I personally wouldn't expect a 1.5 years old HDD to die like this...
Or is it?
