Q: I dowloaded a rar/zip files of 256MB however when i extracted is 3.58G what program c

I dowloaded a rar/zip files of 256MB however when i extracted is 3.58G what program can was used to compress too much?

Preferred Solution: I dowloaded a rar/zip files of 256MB however when i extracted is 3.58G what program c

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: I dowloaded a rar/zip files of 256MB however when i extracted is 3.58G what program c

What was the extension of the compressed file and what types of files did it contain?

But it really isn't about the program doing the compressing but the data that is being compressed. Some types of files, such as many image files, are already compressed and any attempts at further compression will accomplish little if anything. Some file types, such as text files and some others, compress very well.

I used 7zip to open up a .gz zipped/archived file. It seems like 7zip extracts and downloads the files to open it? Is that correct? If so, where are the files located? Or is it just stored somewhere temporarily and then deleted after?

hey there - I'm really sorry if someone has already started a thread about this but as I'm not here that often, I could not find the right thread and I am starting a new one.

concerning the problem: I downloaded a file (tuxguitar actually) and wanted to install it, but thank god my laptop did warn me and I ran a virus check first (bit defender). bit defender told me, that there was a


in the file and I did not open it, bit defender also told me, that the file could not be disinfected but was instead moved (well, to where I do not know).

is there any danger now? what should I do?

giving explanation of problem my best shot....example: I google for widgets find a pdf file download it to word by the process of both open and save. I open the document to nearly goobledegook, an occasional word, letter number in amongst strange symbols and small empty squares. The file type is always manihot. Maybe it also means something technical but I know the word manihot is the name of a tropical tree also called the tapioca tree, which I learned by googling some few months prior to every file type showing up as manihot. Coincidence or did I click where I should have clacked. Already (some) saved documents open up in the same "foreign language" This may sound silly but it is a fact and I am too old (65) to play games. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

When I download large files like about 200mb upwards the download finishes fine but it does not unzip properly (file is corrupt) or if its an exe it says it is corrupt. It is not a problem with a particular file or a particular download source. I checked each of my partitions for errors, but still this problem is happening.

I think its my hard disk, what can i do to solve this problem. Its a recent problem its used to be fine 2 months back.

This problem seems to have started after I deleted my old partitions and created new partitions on my hard disk.

I don't know if other people had this problem but I have a folder that I need to extract but apparently when I extract it to desktop, I click on the folder and noticed some files were missing. I check the unextracted folder and all the files were fine.
I realized when I extract the folder to desktop, the files aren't actually deleting because they seem to be there in the unextracted folder but not there when I extract them.
the next thing I tried is extracting one file that gets deleted from that folder into the desktop and then nothing happens. So the main thing is that the files wont extract to the desktop for a weird reason. I use McAfee anti virus and I tried disabling
everything possible from it and extracted the file. But it didn't work; also i'm running Windows 10.
All I know is that this is probably not from my antivirus and it has to do something with the file not being extracted.

Please help me fix this problem ASAP as the internet has no good answers or no answers at all.

I have a 64-bit Windows 8.1 HP. It came pre-installed 7-Zip. When I extract it changes the file names automatically upon extraction.

On my old Windows 7 desktop I had WinZip and this never happened. So I purchased and installed WinZip on the Windows 8.1 and the same thing happened, it changed the file name automatically.

I have tried all over the net and on this site to find a solution but to no avail. I also compared WinZip settings on the W7 and I can't really tell if they are the same as it is different on W8.1

My real concern is that when I extract the folder, it changes the files names adding additional characters where there would be spaces and then an extension of numbers.
Windows 7 did not do this at all. Please help!!! How can I turn this off?

I would like to ask how to set WinRAR to exclude files with the exact filenames: 'thumbs.db' or '.DS_Store' (without the quotes, ignore case) from being extracted from an archive.

Ex. Files with these filenames should not be extracted:


while files with these filenames should be extracted:

Abcd thumbs.db.txt

In 'Settings->Security->Prohibited file types->File types to exclude from extracting', if I just type in 'thumbs.db .DS_Store' (without the quotes) in the field, will it work the way I described?

Also, does anyone know if WinRAR has a syntax guide for the Prohibited file types list in case I'd like to add more filenames or be flexible with the rules I need?

The reason for this question, is I'd like to not extract unnecessary files from ZIP, RAR or 7z archives in Windows 7 - files like Windows 2000/XP's Thumbs.db file (Thumbnail cache) and Mac OS X' .DS_Store file (Desktop Services Store), while not being too strict and also not extracting files which just contain 'Thumbs.db' or '.DS_Store' in its filename.

A:Setting WinRAR to exclude specified files from being extracted

Yes, it should work.

Here is a piece from WinRar 4.0 Help file

Files to exclude
File masks and file names to exclude from the archiving operation. Wildcards are supported both in path and name parts of masks. If you need to specify several masks, separate them by spaces. If mask contains spaces, enclose it in quotes. For example, you may enter:

c:\temp\info.txt *.bak *.tmp *\temp\

to skip c:\temp\info.txt file, all .bak and .tmp files, all temp folders and all files in temp folders. You may enter file names manually or use "Append" button to browse for file to exclude.

Detailed information about exclusion masks syntax is provided in description of switch -x. This switch uses the same format of exclusion masks as "Files to exclude" field.

Hello. Last year I installed one utility called Wrye Bash used to manage and install mods for the game Oblivion. This particular utility is distributed as a .zip archive, it has no installer. The installation instructions tell to simply extract the archive to the same installation folder where the game was installed. This archive contains folders and subfolders within it. Since July last year, I haven't used or updated Wrye Bash, and 75 new versions were released! Now I'd like to uninstall it first before installing the new version. Uninstalling wouldn't be necessary if the files to be extracted from the new archive overwrote all the files extracted earlier from the old version archive, but this doesn't happen for all the files: some of them are not overwritten. This brings me to this forum.

I'd like to know if there's any way to automatically uninstall (delete) all the files extracted from an archive. There must be a simple way to achieve this I'm not aware of. The hard way would be in Windows explorer to select each and every file in the destination directory which was extracted there from the archive, and then delete them. Is there any easier way to do this? Basically, I wish to know if there's any way to undo the extracting procedure, by automatically removing the files which were extracted to the destination directory.

I was hoping that converting the original .zip archive to a SFX archive with WinRar, I could then use this .exe SFX archive both to install (extract... Read more

I was wondering if anyone could tell me some info about these two cards... I currently use the Fx 5700 le (agp) I do know the "LE" stands for light edition so it is not the best on performance. I have had this card for awhile and am able to run games such as Lock ON, Need for speed most wanted IL-2 Sturmovic, MS flight sim.. For the most part performance is ok. I bought a new card on E-bay today and was hoping to find out if I did the right thing. It is a FX 6200 256 mb AGP. It was new in the box, and I only paid $20 plus $7 for shipping so I figured I would try it. Does anyone know anything about this card???

A:Nvidia Geforce FX 5700 le 256mb vs. FX 6200 256mb

I know the 6200 is one of the best PCI cards you can get, so yes, I'm sure you got a good deal. Actually a very good deal, in my opinion.

This is mainly to settle a dispute between a freind and i, but here goes.
I have an nvidia geforce FX5700 LE 256MB card and he has the Ati radeon 9800 pro 256MB card. We both agree eachother has decent cards for what we do with them.
However at a lan party a few weeks ago we could not settle on who has the better card even though my 5700LE scored better on pc mark and 3d mark with about 100-300 points advantage, but he still wont have it that i have the better card. So, to settle this were putting this to you guys and girls who may know more than we do. Any answers would be greatly apreciated even if you do disagree with me.
Thanx all

A:Nvidia fx5700le 256mb or radeon 9800pro 256mb??????

There must be a problem with your system because the 9800 Pro should beat the crap out of a 5700 LE. It even gives a 5700 Ultra a run for its money. More info here http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/20050705/index.html

The x1300 is a little faster, so I'd recommend it more. I have a pci 6200 128mb, which I got before the x1300 came out, and it isn't too bad considering it's a pci card.

I have read stuff on this, but still confused. for the most part, even when a dl'd program suggests being installed into PF, I, for whatever reason, place it into PF (x86). Although I have read that placing the program into the wrong folder may cause the program not to work properly, so far I have not had this problem...nor any other problems that I am aware of. Could someone please set me straight on this issue?

The computer I have is a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop which is quite old. It only has integrated graphics so ive been wanting to upgrade them. The only available slots are PCI so my choices are sorta limited. I am also looking in around the $40-50 range which is why these cards seem to fit perfectly. (price wise at least) The Dell has only a 250 watt psu, so my first question is can these cards run on the standard psu, or would i have to upgrade it. My next question is which would be better for my system, with both being the same cost and all.

This time when it did nothing I realized that there was a major problem and I imediately left the page. Now it has been 2 days and I'm already seeing a major issue in performance. Also it might just be my paranoia but it seems like it might be some kind of adware and thats possibly flooding my comp making it slow down.

Ok here's my problem

I have a acer aspire 5535 laptop with windows Vista 64bit. Something happen and I couldn't turn on my pc. It kept telling me to insert installation disc. The only one i could find in my house was the 32 bit vista. I didn't realize it was 32 until it was downloaded in my pc.

Now here's where my problem gets more frustrating:

My network and ethernet drivers are not being recognized. I tried reparing it. I got the name of the drivers and i downloaded them from my htc evo and connected it to my computer. It didn't recognize any of the drivers. I tried downloading both 64 bit (before i realized I had actually 32bit) and i downloaded 32bit.

I need some help please


Hi yankees90 and welcome to TSF

So you thought you had a 64bit OS, but it was actually a 32bit OS, and no 32bit drivers are working for your computer now on a fresh install?

Have you tried downloading the latest chipset drivers for your computer and installing them first and then the other drivers.

Looking at the specifications though, it doesn't seem to run Windows 7? Though sometimes you can still run 7 but use Vista drivers instead.

I would check though by downloading and running the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor just to be sure.

Windows cannot open this file:

Click to expand...

To open this file, Windows needs to know which program created it. Windows can go online and look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer.Click to expand...

It's a .uif file/program by the way. I don't know if that helps.

The .uif extension is for a compressed ISO image. We don't support illegal copies of games. Please read the rules.

I am trying to uplift our 32 bit Eclipse RCP application to 64 bit end state.In order to do that I have updated all the required dependencies and dlls. Also I am able to launch the application under 64 bit environment only when the application is kept anywhere
outside Program Files or Program Files(x86). When it is installed in the said location it could not be launched , a result view could not be created because it tries to write a search file in the place where it is been installed.

But the main problem is the same set of code works for 32 bit version no matter where it is installed. Also the 32 bit version of application can read or write result to any desired location without being launched as admin. And the 64 bit version of the application
does the same when launched as admin.

In order to find out more I tried with eclipse_mars_x86 and eclipse_mars_x86_64 with different location.When the workspace is
inside Program Files or Program Files(x86) 32 bit of eclipse can access it without being launched as admin but the same can not be done through 64 bit of eclipse, without launching it as admin.

The same behavior is
seen with sample RCP Application which I created  to investigate the issue . The 64 - bit version of the sample application , if kept inside Program
Files or Program Files(x86)  , is not launching(\.metadata\.locl(Access is Denied)). Where in for the same sample application built in 32 bit environment is working fine i... Read more

Hi have have a new PC running Win7 Home Premium 64bit. I have 2 drives:

1 x 120GB SSD (running the OS) (C Drive)
1 x 1TB HDD (D Drive)

The SSD is running the OS and a couple of main programs which i use quite often (ie. Office 2010, Antivirus, etc).

The HDD i want to use to install and run Games, iTunes, etc...

My question is, if by default installing programmes want to install to C:\Program Files or Program Files (x86). How to i make them install to D:\ and what file structure should i use to make sure the 64bit and 32bit are in the right file and run as they should at the correct bit version??

Is it just a case of creating Program Files & Program Files (x86) folders on D and navigating to these folders on install?


A:Program Files (x86) & Program Files Installed On Another Drive

you could try mounting the the hdd partition to your program files folder in your SSD.

I have never done this before and cannot say it will work properly. but its an idea.

Mount Drives or Partitions as a Folder

P.S. I would definitely backup your program files before trying that.

Hi, I have Windows Vista Ultimate x64, and it came with 2 set of program files: program files, and program files x86. Since my hard drive is only 100 gigs, I was wondering if I could delete the normal program files and keep the x86 ones, or would that cause problems?

A:Deleting program files and keeping program files x86?

would that cause problems?

More than you know. You delete that and you delete any and all 64 bit programs, and probably also have to re-install Vista. That and if the Program Files folder on mine is any indication (just under 1 GB), then you're not going to save a whole lot of space anyway.

Since my hard drive is only 100 gigs

Better idea that trying to bugger Windows up, get a bigger hard drive.

I have a program installed under "C:\Program Files (x86)\CompanyName\SWName".
When the program runs it's supposed to copy some files, say
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CompanyName\SWName\Drivers\*.abc
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CompanyName\SWName\Drivers\*.xyz

The program works on every machine it's been installed on, except for one (customer's) Win 7 64-bit machine. On that machine, nothing happens.

It's noteworthy that on that same machine an "insufficient access privileges" (or some such) message pops-up when an administrator trys to copy a folder to "C:\Program Files (x86)\CompanyName\NewName".

Any guesses as to why this particular Win7 machine is being so picky? What should I have the installer do so that the application will be able to copy/rename its own files?


A:Allow installed program to rename files under Program Files (x86)

Try right clicking on the program installer and select Run as Administrator. See if that allows it to complete.

I do not work much with windows, but I do a lot of work in different distros of bsd and linux.

What I want to do is 'ln -sf c:\program files g:\program files' that is how I would symbolic link the folder in linux, but I can not figure out how to do this in windows.

I need this done so after the folder is moved to a new drive/partition all the Start Menu links still work, and also the short cuts.


A:Sym Link: Moving C:\Program Files\ to G:\Program Files\

not sure if this will work, but how about just creating a shortcut of the C:\folder on the G:\ , or vice versa..
