Missing iCloud drive in windows 8.1

Q: Missing iCloud drive in windows 8.1

Quite while ago, iCloud was installed and updated on both Windows 7 and windows 8.1 computer.
I see both iCloud drive and iCloud photo folders in windows 7. But iCloud drive (its icon and folder) is missing in windows 8.1 computer. In iCloud control panel on windows 8.1, I could not tick in the box in front of the iCloud drive. Sometime I could tick it. but the check mark disappears when the icloud control panel is re-open. Any suggestion would appreciated.

I have a 500gb HD in my Windows 10 Laptop and I also have a Windows 10 Tablet with 9gb spare from 32gb storage with one USB port.

As the bulk of my data is the on 500 drive in the laptop.

What is the best way to share this data between the Laptop and Tablet. Also adding to these two current machines, I am also looking into an iPad. Again the iPad only has 32 or 64gb storage.

Any tips of how solve this, with using MS Cloud/One Drive or iCloud with iPad or of any other method.

thanks
 

A:MS Cloud/One Drive or iCloud from PC

The "best" solution depends on.....

a) How much data (in GB) you need to share between these 3 devices
b) The budget that you have for this

I use Google Drive, Box Sync, Dropbox and iCloud, but I am running out of disk space on my "C" Drive. It looks like my C Drive has 216 GB and I have an E Drive of 931 GB. My C Drive is almost full at 196 GB and made me turn off/unsync many of my Google Drive folders so I could save some of my files for work. My E Drive has almost 900GB available. I think I have my Dropbox syncing to E Drive, but I can't choose how to sync Google Drive to E Drive....It points it automatically to C Drive. My Mac seems way easier than this $***...ugh, what a pain in the *$$...why do I even have two drives seperated like this?! My last work PC was way easier than this more expensive paperweight, but in order to Run all the DEsign intensive stuff we do [Adobe Creative Suite, Autodesk Design Suite, etc.]  we were told this computer should work well...ummmm, well, it's not..it's making my life more complicated and stressfull!

I disabled a number of Services in Windows 7 as an optimization step using services.msc Doing so stopped iCloud synchronization with my iPhone 4s. Rather than reset them all, I'd like to see if anyone knows exactly which services are needed for iCloud to function. Thanks in advance.

A:What Windows 7 Services are required for iCloud to work?

Bonjour, iPod Service, and AppleMobileDevice. I recommend not to disable Services (definitely not following BlackViper's guide or if you do not know what your doing) it is not safe.

So...I can connect the iCloud account just fine in account settings.  However, it doesn't show up in Calendar or Mail as an account I can view, yet it still shows up as properly connected in Settings.  Suggestions?  A quick google hasn't helped as it just suggested workarounds that result in read-only (not ideal) or things Ive already tried with no luck.

Posting solution here.  If you have 2-step verification enabled on iCloud, you must log into iCloud -> account -> security/password -> generate app specific password and use that for Windows.  It synced immediately after deleting and relinking iCloud account with that new app specific password.

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I'd really appreciate any input.

I had previously upgraded my COMPAQ 500B Desktop from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 (Free, from Microsoft) and have enjoyed it very much.  I sometimes watch DVD movies on the computer.  Recently, the DVD drive (HP DVD drive, model TS-H653) disappeared from my list of available drives.  I first thought the drive had died, and replaced it with a new SATA DVD drive. (I kept the original drive) Needless to say, the new drive is not seen either.  I checked all my cable connections with no change. I researched H-P's driver download page with no luck.  Any suggestions?

A:DVD drive missing on Windows 10

NEVER MIND.  The problem has been resolved.  It was a two-fold problem.  The  original drive went bad, and the SATA3 port on the mother board stopped working.  I originally plugged in a new DVD drive with no change in symptoms (it appeared dead).  I reasoned that this was a new DVD drive, so I plugged it into another SATA port on my mother board, and the computer recognized it immediately.  So, I placed the original DVD drive back in the computer, packaged up the replacement DVD drive, buttoned up my computer and got back to work, only to find the computer no longer recognized the DVD drive again.  I knew I had just seen it working, so I had to shut down the computer and replace the original DVD drive (AGAIN).  This time; I left the case open until I confirmed that the new drive worked, and the original SATA3 port on the motherboard was actually dead.End result is a bad DVD drive, and a bad SATA3 port on the motherboard.Thank you for reading my flustering activities.

A:'Windows' folder is missing from the C: drive, but I can use it in the address bar !

For your first problem, it should be one of the settings in folder options - open your C drive then click "Tools->Folder Options..." and in the View tab make sure the following are ticked:

Display the contents of System Folders
Show hidden files and folders

and these are unticked:

Hide extensions for known file types
Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

For the second problem, does your friend have any anti-virus software installed? If not, download, install, update and run Grisoft's AVG Free Edition. If this doesn't work, you may want to tell him to pay a visit to our Hijack This Log Help forum.

According to Treesize, my files account for 16.8Gb of my 30Gb drive - why does Windows show that I have only 1.4Gb free? I have checked the "protected" folders that Treesize cant list, and all of them are empty

I have tried to search the net as best I can about this problem but cant find many thing where the missing space amounts for such a large amount of the drive. I have used CCleaner to delete all my temp files/etc and used the Windows Disk Cleanup utility to get rid of the initial installation files, none of this has helped at all however =(

Ive also seen some suggestions on using WinDirStat to diagnose the problem, the screenshot of that can be seen here http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/240/windirstat.jpg . Im not massively sure what im looking at in Windirstat, but it seems to me like it shows the same problem. My files only account for <16Gb disc space, hence 13Gb worth of space has just vanished off the disc (pretty harsh when its ove... Read more

I have a brand new Thinkcenter. We have bought  a couple of dozen over the last two years.I tried to upgrade this new computer to win10 but had many problems logging onto a domain. so I used the F11 key to reinstall win7. Then I tried to put win10 on it again. Same problems. It works but too many problems. Ok so I have given up on win10.  So Im just going to go back to good old windows7. But now when I press F11 key it does not work. I  have done nothing to the partitions. Im sure they are still there and in good working order. Any way I think not to worry I created the Windows7 Recovery CD's . You know those you create yourself using lenovos program. However now when I boot from those CD's it boots from the first CD and then asks for Applications Recovery disk CD. Well I dont have one. I called Lenovo they are going to send me cd's for windows 7.  BUT I dont get it why bother making a recovery CD IF its is going to ask me for a applications CD but it never creates one of these. The Lenovo site says when you are presented with this option, eg for application CD just say NO in the interface, however there is no option for NO just OK. And if you say ok it comes back asking for the applications driver again and again. Soo having said all this, for the dozens of lenovos that I have created windows 7 recovery CD's for, am I just wasting my time because I dont have applications and drivers cd. Please advise anyone??thanks.

A:Creating a windows recovery CD seems missing drive...

So I have found the answer to my problem. For those who may be of interest.The Recovery CD's I  created are good. However When the system asks for the Application Drivers recovery disk put in the second disk (or first one that you created after you made the boot disk.) But here is the key Put the disk in and wait for perhaps 30 seconds depending on the speed of your CD Player. Then Say OK. Then it will proceed. For some reason the reading of the cd's is slow and if you simply put the cd in and then click ok, Which is what I did, it will not recognize the CD as the right one. Even if you repeatedly click OK, it will not find/discover the right files to proceed and will keep coming back with "Insert applications drivers arecovery disk into drive D:" Be patient.Thanks for playing.

So I installed windows 7 from an .iso on a flash drive. At the time I has windows XP installed with about 58 GB left on my hard drive. I deleted all file (music, video, etc) and I believe that the only thing on my netbook was program files. I have a 160 GB hard drive. So I figured when i installed Windows 7 all my old info would be deleted and my hard drive basically go back to factory. This did not happen. All my programs were gone and personal info gone but my hard drive still showed about 51 GB available. I went into the C drive and deleted a file Windows.old which was about 18 GB leaving me about 69 GB left on my 160 GB netbook. I want to make some space on my netbook as this is without any files.

HI all, i tried replying to an open thread, but pretty sure this solution will help a lot of people who are trying to install a windows from a USB drive.

If youve followed a guide like the following:

http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/

but are still getting the BOOTMGR missing when you start the computer with the USB drive in, its because it is trying to load an operating system from the HDD (which is empty).

In the bios setting make sure ALL the USB devices (USB stick, external hard drive, external device) are above the CD/DVD drive AND the Hard Disk. This worked for me after hours of messing around (not sure if USB stick size has something to do with the way that it is recognised by some computers....

hope this helps

I wanted to get an opinion or a knowlege of what seetings the laptop needs to be, for iCloud to function properly? Maybe the settings on the other end as well, have to be adjusted to accept a PC system?
 
At this point, I am having screen resolution & color issues. Seems when I open the iCloud program, the screen switches & the colors & resolution go to a negative & cartoonish appearance.
 
Putting the feelers out there now.
 
Thanks,

Up til now, I have been happily syncing my iPhone4 and iPad2 with MS Outlook 2007 via my PC x iTunes.

Somehow, I recall choosing an option somewhere to use iCloud "cos it sounded OK" but now when I try to sync the devices on iTunes, it tells me that I cannot do this anymore as it is being done on iCloud and I will have duplicate contacts and all sorts of dire problems.

At the risk of being old fashioned, how do I get rid of iCloud and go back to the procedure first mentioned in Para one ..........?

I feel much happier with it and not having vast numbers of contacts, appontments etc. would prefer to leave iCloud out of it for the moment.

How do I do this thanks?
