MAC OSX 10.6 file SMB server Windows 7 deleted files behaviour

Q: MAC OSX 10.6 file SMB server Windows 7 deleted files behaviour

small network with 8 W7 PC's and mac mini as SMB file server.

the shared volumes has privileges setup as i need to and works fine.
however i don't know how to get around accidental deletes. couple times it happened users deleted a file and i can only recover YESTERDAY backup as the file is just gone.

Can that be modified so the deleted file goes either to the trash on the W7 client or trash on the server ?

How to do so ?

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

I have installed FileZilla server 0.9.41 on Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time
of the file uploaded is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hours earlier, and truncates the seconds. This makes version control of files difficult. Is there some configuration
change that can fix this, or is this a Windows Server issue? The server time is configured for the Central time zone in The United States.

I wanted to consolidate data from other disks that I had so I could use those disks to convert an existing W7 installation into a RAID array. So I hooked up additional 2 x 500GB disks that contained files and previous installations of Windows and a 1TB drive to copy the files I wanted to keep. These two 500GB other disks were used for Vista in the past and both had been used as primary hard disks (ie they both had independent OS's installed).

After booting up, I proceeded to browse through the disks and decided what I wanted to keep and what I didn't want to keep. I had to change permissions here and there to get access to the old Vista directories etc. All well and good so far.

I have C: (W7 installation), G: (old Vista disk) and F: (another old Vista disk). For all other installs including the W7, I used the same username. For convenience sake, lets call my username billgates.

So, C:, G: and F: all had directories USERS/billgates directories. Following this so far?

When I browsed to F:\users\billgates, I was seeing files from that directory plus files from c:\users\billgates even though the location in windows explorer was saying f:\users\billgates

Without analysing this too much, I went on to delete directories and files that I didn't want from my G: and F: drives only to find that it had also deleted directories by the same name from my C: drive!!

Anyone else had this problem?

I have a Windows XP user who can open PDF files on our secondary file server (e.g. \\serverB\shares\marketing\file.pdf) but not from the main server (\\serverA\shares\marketing\file.pdf). Same with copying PDF files. He can
copy them to his desktop. from server B but not from server A. Server A is the one assigned to him because server B is being pre-seeded for DFS and is in a different office anyway.

The problem is only with PDF files. He can open and copy any other files. And it's only on his Windows XP machine. His Windows 7 machine works just fine (he can copy and open PDF files from server A).

The two servers (Windows 2016) are set up identically as far as NTFS permissions. The only difference is that server A is set up in DFS while server B is being pre-seeded before being added to DFS.

DFS namespace type is: domain (Windows Server 2008 mode).

The XP machine had no problem under server A when the DFS namespace type was Server 2000 mode, but I'm not sure that would cause the problem.

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?

Hello,
I have a problem with IE11 when downloading *.tif files from an intranet server.  When I click the link to download one of these files it opens sometimes and fails other times.  I can try to download the same file 10 times in a row and it may fail
4/10 times and open the other 6 times.  All other file types (pdf, docx, etc) download fine.
Now the odd thing is that the file I am trying to open is a *.tif but IE will say that *.tiff (yes, extra 'f') has been moved or deleted.  If I close IE and reopen it and then view downloads, it now says *.TIF (all caps) has been moved or deleted.  I
believe that there is something in IE that is trying to download *.tiff files instead of *.tif so it can not find the file and gives me the error.  The only odd thing is that it works some of the time.
This worked fine on IE8 and IE9 (never had IE10) but we recently upgraded to IE11 and now it is exhibiting this issue.  If I use Google Chrome it works fine but we rely on IE for a lot of inhouse applications so other browsers are not an option.  I
am at a loss and looking for any insight.

A:System Restore Deleted Files Personal file

System restore shouldnt touch your personal files unless they were saved on the c drive outside of your personal directory.

You have pretty much already done what you can do to restore the files you are missing. If you cant find them it is likely because the data has already been overwritten by something else and is now irretrievable. You might be able to use a program like Recuva or GetDataBack to get the rest of it, but I would say that its doubtful.

Hello Kushal! Please don't give your e-mail id in the posts. Its not advisable. So please edit your post and remove it.

Secondly,I don't think this question is in the right forum. So I'll be requesting a mod to move it to a correct one so that you can receive help.
As far as I've seen Advanced System Care (ASC) is downright harmful. Bought down a hell for me. So, I'll personally advice you against its usage. Try to remember, has the problem started after you started using ASC? Have you tried to do registry cleaning with ASC?
If yes, then maybe you can try a system restore to a time when a problem was not there.

A:Cloned file finder, deleted files I need. Help restoring?!! IOBit ASC

You have to take responsibility for making choices.  One choice I recommend going forward is to uninstall IO System Care and every other kind of PC Care -- I have heard others had unintended consequences with such programs.  Don't uninstall until this all has been resolved as best as possible.
Going forward, you may be able to find a high-quality, fee or free, USB-stick portable version, folder/file undelete program.  There are many out there, some free, some expensive.  Decide how much you want to pay for and apply blood, tears, toil and sweat to:
TRY, I repeat, TRY to recover folders and files; no program in its right mind will guarantee to undelete each and every deleted folder and file.

Hello,

I apparently deleted some files, though precisely when is an open question (likely within the last 3 months). I have already run a few file recovery programs to no avail. The files are mostly scientific articles, so they are replaceable. The catch is I need to know which files that were deleted.

I know that Windows is renowned for the amount of data it logs about system activity. I was hoping that there is an access log buried somewhere that I could search for the folder names and find a list of the specific files that were deleted. Also, any recommendations on the program(s) that would be helpful in doing this. I am running Windows 7 Professional x64 on a Dell Latitude D830.

Thank you so much for any help you can offer

A:The possibility of finding a file access log detailing deleted files.

Windows does not log that kind of thing unless file system auditing is enabled and the appropriate options set. This is NOT enabled by default. This auditing would consume a large amount of disk space in quite a short period of time unless it is very selective.

The real solution to this kind of problem is to maintain backups of all important files. There are a variety of ways that data can be lost and not all are preventable and not all recoverable. You need to be prepared when (not if) something happens.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Okay let me give you all the facts up until about 6 months we ran hardcoded PC's across the board. We then got more and more laptops and are finding it easier to now run DHCP. One issue I have is we are running DHCP off a Cicso router and not off the Windows 2003 server. Also remember we have a bunch of subnets as each location is on its own vlan (while this does not matter the same problem is happening with the local LAN with the hosting servers).

I just now went into DNS and noticed that our records are not being updated within DNS. We had some records that are in our forward lookup zones that were 3 months old + that have no computername any longer even on the network. In the reverse lookup zones there is more of the same where we have multiple records with the same IP.

This is happening in both forward and reverse lookup zones and is on 2 different DNS servers. Now scavenging was set for the forward lokup zones for 7 days abut the reverse lookup zone was NOT enabled. We went ahead and enabled it and then I did a forced Scavenge Stale resource records on both servers at the same time.

This did part of what I wanted but did not fix the entire problem. In the forward lookup zones the A records that were stale are now gone (at least the main ones that caused me to notice the problem to begin with). In the reverse lookup zones there are still a TON of duplicates - PTR records for 2 different PC's on the same IP and PTR records for 1 PC on 2 different IP's

A:Windows 2003 DNS Server - Client Records not being deleted.

Hello Stumped!

I am having the same problem in my environment with my reverse lookup zones. I have duplicate PTR records and scavenging does not seem to be working for the reverse lookup zones. I am at the point now where I am considering deleting my reverse lookup zone and recreating. I just have to answer a few questions about how I am going to recreate the reverse lookup entries that were created from manual forward entries. I would hate to have to do that part manually.

At any rate, I believe I can at least speak to your question regarding a Cisco device being used for dynamic DNS.

You're Windows 2000/XP clients should register their forward lookup name themselves. The DHCP server registers the PTR records on the client&#8217;s behalf. The client has the option of requesting to update both records; however, it is only responsible for actually updating the forward lookup zone. The reverse lookup zone in a Microsoft scenario is always updated by the DHCP server.

I have not been able to determine that Cisco routers actually support dynamic DNS. I have seen some documentation for security appliances that make it possible (but I don't think they work with MS DNS)

As far as what I've found from Cisco, they sell a DNS/DHCP solution called Cisco Network Registrar which supports dynamic DNS. My suggestion would be to pick one solution or the other. (I have no experience with CNR and I have no idea what it costs)

Our church has a file server (Dell 2900) running Server 2003 + SP2. It's job is to share files with the staff at the church on approx. 20 PCs & Macs. All was working OK till last week when suddenly no one could get on the shared files. when they tried to check the shares on there MY Computer, they were told that they didn't have permission or that the share did not exist. I could see the shares locally, but could not see or connect over the network.

I ran our symantec 10 and our malware bytes with reports that all was well.

I backed up the data to an ext HDD and reformated the C partiotion of the drive. The data resides on the D partition which I did not touch. It worked for a short while and then had the same failure.

Just some notes: When I turned off the share on the server, it informed that there was one user connected even though I knew no one was connected.

I installed the paid portion of malware bytes and saw several blocked malicious attempts to unknown IP addresses.

I further suspect a hidden spyware program because I looked in the log file of the router and saw connections and attempted connection between the servers IP and some unknown external IP addresses on a port around 24000.

My question is, should I just delete everything in infected drive then copy and paste the files from the non-infected drive?
What's the best way to restore without the convenience of built-shadowcopy or previous version restoration?

I just upgraded to windows 10, over the next day or so I moved out some of my important files and put them in the new my documents folder as every time I wanted to open a file it wasn't the right place. Then overnight it updated and my old look desk top was back and only one my documents folder which kept all my old files but not the new ones that I had moved. Any help would be appreciated. I have tried going into windows.old but there are no files in there. I have tried doing a deep scan but it finds them but they are corrupt. It is weird though because my whole desktop changed overnight as I had selected a difference background and had post it notes on the screen. All my icons had moved and my files were gone. I can't find another account or anything. I just don't know what to do and just feel stupid that I didn't back up my files. They were so important I can't imagine having to do all my accounts over again. Any help would be grateful.
Thanks

A:Deleted files in Windows 10

If you upgraded from Win 8 or 8.1, Your old 8 or 8.1 desktop and folders will be carried over. Could this be the case?

I have several Win 10 systems, two desktops with Win 10, both upgraded from 8.1 and an "insider" preview version. After installation of the insider preview version, for example, the same wallpaper that is on my "operational" systems was automatically install on the preview version.

Hello new to the forum, recently had a major problem with my PC, I currently run on Windows XP.

I had to reset the PC at the power button, due to it crashing on me during i was playing a game. When i turned the PC back on again i had lost all the files, pictures, internet history and word documents off my user side of the PC, i checked the other user area and the the files and folders are still intact.

The thing that is puzzling me is the fact whenever i save a file/picture/document to my desktop and subsequently turn off the pc after use. It seems to automatically delete the file/picture/document off my desktop and is no were to be found on countless searches i've done on all my harddrives.

Anyone able to help

I've reinstalled Windows XP SP2 on my old machine. After first restart it told me that there are problems with my D disk's file structure (Windows installation as default - on C disk). I let Windows to check and repair problems on D disk. It took about 30 mins. After done "fixing", windows restarted once more. And what i saw after, was a blank D disk. Almost 250GB of photos, documents, home-made movies and other unrecoverable priceless data were lost...
So that was the tragedy. A few hours later, when I calmed down, I've started to download and try variuos file recovery software. But none of it helped me to recover at least one lost file. After week of trying i gave up. I've tried variuos Windows apps, live CDs with recovery tools, Linux apps. None of those helped... So maybe someone has a solution for me, couse I don't know what to try anymore?

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64. I forgot that I had "Show hidden files and folder" checked, and was going to burn a disc using Windows. In addition to the file that I was going to burn to disc, another file appeared in Windows Explorer, ready to burn, that was named "Desktop" and the type was "Configuration Settings." I deleted that file from the "Files Ready To Be Written To Disc" part of Windows.

Did deleting that file possible also delete it from my computer or mess something up? Could I have caused a major headache and a possible re-format?

I have Windows 2000 on my laptop and it has been running very slow and took forever to do anything. So I went to add/remove programs in control panel and deleted what I thought were unnecessary programs. I must have deleted some files/programs that were needed to run Windows 2000 because now it won't do anything for the most part.
I think Windows 2000 may be too big of a program for my older laptop. Should I uninstall Windows 2000 and install a different version?

Any help I can get would be very much appreciated because I am at a total loss without my computer.

Thank you ~
 

A:I think I deleted necessary files to run Windows 2000

A couple of things to try. If any system files have gone run sfc: command prompt and type sfc /scannow (note space) and put in os disc. Failing that you can reinstall w2k over itself with no data loss:

With the cdrom booting up you select 'install', then you will be prompted to enter the repair console in the next screen. Do not enter the repair console here but continue on by selecting 'install' again. Then you should be presented with the listed operating systems on your pc . This should give you the option to repair those installations. This way it will rewrite over the entire operating system but will leave your installed programs intact. The only difference I have seen using this method is that it wipes out every windows update.

I am using Windows XP and found that Windows deleted my files wrongly.

Few days ago, I deleted total 7 video files (eg. filename: 1.mpg, 2.mpg....7.mpg) in my external hard disk thru Windows Explorer. Today, when I try to play a video file (eg. filename: a.mpg) in the same external hard disk, the video shows the content of one of the deleted file. So I checked all other remaining video files in the hard disk, and the result is all 7 deleted video files are still in the hard disk (which means a.mpg became 1.mpg, b.mpg became 2.mpg etc).

Does anybody knows what's wrong with this?

Thanks!

So last night I downloaded and ran DTTweak because my defragmenter was not working. I ran the defragmenter and the windows registry cleaner and it was all ok. I shut my computer down and went to sleep. This morning I went on my computer and nothing worked. I have a Dell and my quickset didn't work at all, along with iTunes, Internet Explorer and System Restore. When i try to run System Restore it says that Volume Shadow Copy service used by System Restore is not working... Any ideas??

Hi guys,

I use Ubuntu 14.04 in dual boot with Windows 7. I have a separate NTFS partition for my personal files (music, photos, etc).

I have files working perfectly in Ubuntu, then I go to Windows and they are not longer there, then go back to Ubuntu and the files disappeared. Once they were in a .lost directory on Windows (after running chkdsk), but I couldn't recover much.

Is there something I could do? I think it has to do with the disk cache :c

Thanks!

Ps. The fast-startup option is disabled

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Pretty bold dual booting and sounds like sharing a partition with files with the 2 totally different os's

I personally would suggest a old fashion dual boot with totally separate hdd's or sdd's
1 for each os using a device like this

Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Recovery of file can still be done even after it has been deleted using some softwares.
You may take time to review this and this articles for such task. 
 
I am not very optimistic with large movie files but if it's only pictures and notes then recuva may simply the job.

I just ran malwarebytes and it found a file where stuff I download from firefox gets put into, it's not a system folder. The file it found was smss.exe which is supposed to be in system32, when I looked in that folder I notice about 20 other files, 1 or 2 of them were also exe files, others were dll, 1 was a screen saver. They seem to be random small sized files, so I just deleted them all. Now my computer hangs on me when I try to do just about anything... were these actually important files somehow? Why would they be there?

A:Deleted some files, now windows hangs...

Sounds like a virus had replaced some system files with infected versions. Many files can exist anywhere as long as they are "installed" or "registered" with the system. It is much more difficult to actually replace the file in system32 itself, may be easier to kep the file out of that location if you can register it from seomwhere else.

You should be able to run the system file checker to replace the missing files by booting off your windows disk.

I am not entirely sure what has happened, however, i have the same kind of problem as Xeron(Gary) with one slight difference, my entire C:\windows folder was shoved into the recycle bin by a virus and deleted, i only just realized this cause i didnt think it was THE C:\windows folder, because of two things A; the recycle bin showed up empty when clicked(icon showed full but nothing came up, as if it was a hidden folder or so) and B: there was a kind-of repacement windows folder still there, i was running a few programs (ESET nod32 antivirus) and ran ccleaner without thinking about the repurcussions of it ><, after cleaning all my old files i went to cean the registry....well, you can pretty much imagine my surprise as EVERY SINGLE THING that was inside the WINDOWS foder was popping up left and right(metaphorically of course) so, now i've opted tp try and use file recover(i havent turned off the pc yet, its a laptop ><)but i just dont know if it can bring back a file that was 'super hidden' as i call it(i ran into a virus like this before, it came in a recycler folder and mass saved itself eating away at the registry etc, had to format my comp and now my desktop doesnt work, damn ibm/intel chipset family ><)
anyway, if you have any reccomendations, please, be my guest, im on msn for the next 20 or so minutes then i gotta sleep and go to work, but i cant turn off my comp(lol.....>) so it'l be on for a lonnnng time, so please, any suggestions, message them ... Read more

I'm a freshman writer and all of my poetry, college work, and stories were on the desktop. One day when the laptop went into standby, I went outside, came back in, turned the computer back on, and half my desktop icons were missing. Unfortunately, every folder on the desktop seemingly vanished. I tried to system restore the computer in order to get the files back, but it didn't work - the desktop icons came back alongside the folders, but the folders were empty.

This isn't a new problem to me, though. The same thing happened on my old computer that was running Windows XP; I just didn't care because, well, none of the icons really mattered at all. This stuff is practically my life, though. I'd hate to give up on the files, but I don't really know what to do now.

If you guys could help me, I'd be incredibly grateful.

hi there,
i have a windows xp SP3 operating system and im trying to recover the syetem files but i cant do it.
i tried to do system recovery from my actual windows XP CD but the CD contains SP1(windows xp home edition) and my computer is updated to SP3 therefore when i try to do system recovery from the cd it says "the windows version i am using is newer than my actual windows cd's version"

The reason why i want to do system recovery is because i had a lot of viruses in my computer and used to take up all the RAM when i start the computer. i have used a software called "XRAY-MYPC" which scans and shows all the services and programs that running. after i scanned the pc i have deactivated and deleted some of the services & files as i thought it might not be part of the system files.

the problems i have faced after i deleted and deactivated the services is that my copy and paste dont work, my taskbar at the bottom has dissapeared, does not let me install programs, does not let me turn on the windows firewale as it sasy "It can not be displayed as associated services are not runnig".

i have lost many functions from my computer is there any way i can get all the windows services back to default.

Regardless of the operating system currently installed, you can perform a reformat and clean installation using your SP1 Installation CD.After you are done installing, be sure to run all Windows updates to get the Operating System completely up to date (SP3 + updates)Insert the Windows Install Disc into the drive, boot it and install from the Windows Setup.More Info:Click here for a life lesson on how to use google to find all your answers!Using the above "google search" method, you will find that the following two pages are the TOP two results using a google search.
