Duplicate drivers; which folder(s) can I delete?

Q: Duplicate drivers; which folder(s) can I delete?

I want to free up space on my hard drive, so I ran a duplicate files finder.
I have several duplicate copies of (large) driver files. I would think that I only need one. One of the folders with drivers is c:\drivers. I use Windows 7, so I imagine I need that folder. I also have folders with some duplicate drivers: \documents\double driver backup and \dell\drivers.
Do I need those last two?

Preferred Solution: Duplicate drivers; which folder(s) can I delete?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Duplicate drivers; which folder(s) can I delete?

You should keep the c:\drivers. You can delete the others, but if you need to delete because you are running low on hard drive space you really need to install a larger hard drive. Considering the price of hard drives, now, there is no reason to have to delete, etc, because of drive space.

Hi,
today I uninstalled Toshiba bluetooth stack because it was causing issues and restarted the PC. Then I have checked in System32 folder and the drivers corresponding to the Toshiba bluetooth stack were still there, so I have deleted them from System32 /Drivers folder and System32 /DriverStore / FileRepository. I have also deleted the related infinitives in Windows /inf folder.
Are there other folders in where I should check for leftovers of the drivers?

Thanks in advance, werty

I started out with the two previous posts about macros (post 1, post 2) that move rows into columns, but I'm having a little trouble getting it to work for what I need. First, I'm trying to do a data merge into Word, but in order to get the data merge to work/look the way I want it to, I need the XLS data to be in columns.

I'm attaching an example file that has one worksheet of the sample data (though my "real" data has about 300 rows) and the other worksheet is an example of the outcome I need.

Is there anyway I can do what I need? Exporting into another file or another worksheet within this file would be fine.

Thanks in advance.

Hi member and the experts,

I actually found the same thread with mine but the previous thread was created 2007 and wasn't solved.

So just like the title, there is a duplicate folder inside the folder. Tried to remove it manually, but it kept coming back once I restart my laptop. I am using ACER Aspire 2920 & Windows Vista in it.

I got this problem since 2008 when a friend tried to setting something (and I didn't know what it was) and it isn't recovered until today (hope it isn't too late to fix it up) *pray to God*

The previous thread suggested to do a scanning using HJT and I did.

I truly wish someone can really help me with it. Thanks in advance!

You should be able to delete the folder unless some of your programs are using it.

If you are using a FAT32 file system use a Dos boot disk to access the command prompt and delete the folder from there.

If you are using NTFS then use the recovery console to delete it.

Hi, That is one of the weak part of Windows - and other software. Each software creates its own folder and it normally uses that folder to run. Windows should be smart enough to store common files in only one spot but it can't work this out ! You can delete them BUT please note them where they are because you may have restore them back for other programs. My suggestion: keep them, few hundred megabytes now are just a piece of cake. Regards.

Hi all, sorry if this is not in the right category (it kind of mixes email and applications).

I work IT for a local school and we're moving everyone's email from Rackspace email to Gmail. The way we have everyone copying old emails over is to have them setup both accounts in Apple's Mail 6.5 program (all the teachers have Macbooks) and drag and drop from one account to the other.

Here's my concern, we have several teachers who've wound up with duplicate emails in their new Gmail inboxes. Is there a quick way to get rid of the duplicates without manually having to go through each email. Is there some trick on Gmail or a usable script on Mail 6.5 (all laptops on Mountain Lion or Snow Leopard) that will help out? Or perhaps some third party program or service? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

I have rows of data with duplicate cells in each row.

I do not want to delete any rows.

I want to delete only duplicate cells in each row.

There are many ways to delete dups in columns. I do not want to delete rows. I do not want to delete rows if dups appear in the row. I want to delete the dups going across the sheet from left to right, row by row, going down the sheet from top to bottom.

For example, I five rows...

fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep

I want to delete the duplicate cells in each row. I want to end up with the following...

fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat

Just to clarify, if a cell is repeated in a row, one unique cell should be left in the row in which the repeated cell appears. I only want to delete repeated cells in the rows in which the repeated terms appear, leaving only one unique where the repeated cells appear. If the word "cat" appears five times in row 2 and three times in row 3, after the macro is run, the word "cat" should appear once in row 2 and once in row 3.

In some cells, spaces do appear because in some cells, the cells contain a short phrase (dog bone) rather than just... Read more

Hello.

I have this rather annoying problem that came up yesterday when I installed Rainbow Six Vegas 2 to play a bit and after i was done with it I saw that it had created a second Program Files folder in which it was installed.

So I had 2 Program Files folders in the same directory(impossible I know) and after renaming the original one in order to delete the new one(after uninstalling Vegas 2) it just said that the folder was no longer there with this message

Item not found
Could not find this item
This is no longer found in E:


I tried a few things that I googled - like inserting a file in it in order to delete it then - it just created yet another Program Files folder that stored the inserted file and the one that has 0 byte size still stays there unable to be deleted. Also tried deleting it from safe mode which proved unsuccessful.

I use SkyDrive as my cloud storage and have 5GB of files in it.

But I want it to be IN THE CLOUD and hidden, not accesible to everyone using my laptop and not duplicate copies of the files in my hard disk (actually triplicate copies).

For example, let's say my 3GB music collection. I keep a copy in my hard disk within "My Music", a copy in the cloud in Skydrive, but now I have a third copy in my hard disk within the Skydrive folder, which I didn't want and I wasn't asked about.

Microsoft assumed I want this third copy for some reason and downloaded everything automatically to this Skydrive folder. Great.

So, the first thing I do is uninstalling Skydrive, if I want to upload something I do it via browser, but the folder and copy of my files is still there.

My question is, can I delete those files, my music collection and so on without deleting at the same time the copy in the cloud? I mean, if I delete them here they will be deleted in the cloud too?

Thanks in advance.

A:Can I delete the SkyDrive duplicate files in my laptop?

Copied this from the skydrive FAQ.
What does the SkyDrive folder do?

When you install the SkyDrive desktop app for Windows, a copy of your SkyDrive is downloaded to your PC and put in theSkyDrive folder. This folder is kept in sync with SkyDrive. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder on SkyDrive.com, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted in your SkyDrive folder and vice versa.

Hi All,

I have a few macros in Normal.dot including some which load a new letter with different Headers and Footers for business letters and personal letters.

I have assigned buttons for the macros BUS HOM BEN

When I click &quot;New&quot; in the menu I get a new page using the Normal.dot template showing my Macros.
BUS - HOM - BEN

Now, if I click the button for the &quot;Business Macro&quot; = BUS, I get the correct new letter with Business header, but now it has duplicate Macros as in....
BUS - HOM - BEN - BUS - HOM - BEN

I go to the Customize menu and in the Macro list it shows them duplicated, no surprise there.

How can I delete the excess Macros?

Thanks

I'm running Windows XP on my laptop and my hard drive is almost full. I have been trying to delete files, but everytime I try to delete a file, a duplicate file is created. How can I delete files permanently without creating duplicate files?
 

A:Can't delete files without a duplicate file appearing

When you right-click the file and select Delete, a copy of the file is made?
