I have an issue with the one key recovery (another topic). Got the function of one key recovery wrong. Thought it would be enough to safe the disk with the software. Now the disk crashed an I cant access my files :-( I thougt about, is there a way to get access to the "original" files in the backup files? Is there a kind of "file" browser?

HELP! I am trying to copy files from my old computer to a new one. I copied the contents of the My Documents folder onto an external HDD. When I connect it to the new computer, I can see the folder but when I try to access it, I get the message in the attached pic. I have tried changing permissions on the drive to no avail. I'm running WinXP Pro SP3 on both the old and new computers. I had a password on the old one to log on, which has been removed. The old computer is still bootable. Can anyone help me please?

I have two laptops, a ThinkPad T30 and a Latitude C840 (they are both working with XP SP2, except the T30 doesn't have a screen). I'd like to move the T30's drive into the C840, but when I do this, the C840 will hang right after the BIOS screen (incl. the XP CD's Press a key to boot off the CD if I tell it to boot from the disc drive first).

My first thought was to try Recovery Console from the XP CD. I can log into the install, and I've already tried fixmbring and fixbooting it. This doesn't help.

This leaves the option of the drivers not being right. I installed the C840 chipset drivers, nothing.

I'd really rather not go on a wild goose chase trying to figure out what'll get things up and running, so can you guys gimme a suggestion?


A:Moved hard drive and cannot boot; hard drive accessable from Recovery Console

You can't simple move one drive from one machine to another because the drivers are specific to the hardware. Did you receive recovery CDs for the Latitude? If so, you could use them to "restore" it to its factory default with the new drive. This may actually be on a partition of the hard drive.
As an alternative, you could create an image of the original drive and restore it to the new one using some freeware such as DriveImage XML. To restore the image to the new drive, you'll need to boot to a bootable CD using something like UBCD4WIN and restore the image from somewhere on your network.

So I'll try to give an exact account of what has happened.

85 GB of ISO files in a folder on my desktop.
I drag and drop the folder into an opened folder window. (this folder is futher in my /C)
New folder is created and a message says some files is in use and stops immediately.
Close program, delete partial folder created.
Message says files too large for recycle bin do you want to perm. delete them. Yes.
Drag and drop folder again, nothings there when I open it.
The whole process took no time at all. Never once did I see a status bar even blink on the screen. No waiting time whatsoever.

Here's the fun part.

My drive properites shows a 85 GB decrease in size and no .iso files show up in a search.
I tired one file recovery freeware program and only 8 of the iso's even showed up. All were "over written" and not recoverable. Restarted the computer. Ran it again, now no iso's show up.

I had a pretty knowledgeable programer help me through the above steps and they tried several options I can not describe, because they involved command prompt and other things I'm clueless about. Unfortunately Windows is not their hot subject, so suggestions are more than welcome.
Any ideas as to where the heck the files went? Is it worth it to try other recovery programs or will that just increase my chance of actually writing over the iso's?

Mod Edit:  Merged separate topics re same issues/system - Hamluis.
Wife's 64-bit Vista HP laptop, which has been junk ever since we got it a few years ago, is stuck on the latest Microsoft update.  Everytime we try to start the laptop, it goes to the update screen, gets to update #3 of 3, then says "welcome" very quickly, before saying "Windows is now shutting down".  Then, it doesn't shut down.  The screen goes black, briefly, and the cycle starts over.  I've tried starting in Safe Mode (all 3 options), and still get stuck on the update cycle. 
I did a disk check.  Took hours, but didn't help. 
I went to system recovery, and then selected system restore, but it said I had to leave system recovery to start system restore, but didn't explain how to get to system restore w/o going through system recovery.
When I did get a pop-up that asked if I wanted to restore to an earlier date, I clicked "yes", but nothing happened.
At one point, I got somewhere that asked for a password, but she has no idea what the password is.  We tried all her usual passwords.
Now, I do have an external HD which I backed up her laptop with, several months ago, but I have no idea if that will help, or how?  And would she lose anything since that back-up, if we were able to use that?

When I try to save to my F drive that is a CD/W the screen reads that it is not accessable. I used to be able to save to it. What am I doing wrong?

A:F: not accessable

in order to save to the CD you would have to use a program like INCD {Nero} or DIRECTCD {ROXIO}
and have a formatted CD in the drive - then it would act like a floppy drive.
Also you need to have the program in startup

I have removed I Tunes from my computer recently, and I think the problem started after that, I reinstalled it to see if that would solve the problem, but it didn't. Thought I may have lost the driver and tried to install a new one, that didn't help either. Any help please.

I got a nasty virus. It made my comp shut down and when I rebooted, I couldn't get to windows xp. So, I did a bad thing and did a system recovery. I get back in and the comp is acting like it just came out of the box. Ok, fine. I can reinstall and update and I'll live. Then I discover that I can't see my movies and music and books. I figure out that the C drive has been partitioned. I have like 2gb space left on the comp because of the old music and movie files. I also see that the recovery didn't help as the virus is back after about 10 minutes. I cry a lil.

I heard that I could use a flash drive and transfer the files I want to recover from the c drive partition, format the comp, reinstall windows xp and just start over virus free. *cheer* I go and buy a flash drive. The only problem is that I do not know how to access the C drive partition that has my files hostage so that I can save what I can onto the flash drive. I don't even know how to view the partition. All I know is that the partition was made because the c drive is blue and underlined. How do I use the flash drive to access the files, transfer them, and then get on with the format and do over?

Oh, Gracious Computer Gods, hear my plea! Get my movies and music back and I swear I will make recovery disks and back up and keep everything I love on a flash drive!!!! Sigh, it was more fun to bargain with the Gods to get out of hangovers....

Hello everyone,

Earlier yesterday, I formatted my computer. After that, my everything was in Ext. HDD. I started to get things from it. I got most important things firstly and I said I'll resume it later. Process was done and so I was not doing anything with ext. HDD. After that I dropped external HDD by accident and disconnected the usb cable... I wanted to make sure if its still working after the drop so I reconnected it. PC detected my ext. HDD but it did not appear on 'My Computer' and 'autorun' did not show up. HDD light was always bright and when I connect it to PC I hear the sound. After million tries, just for one time a 'autorun' showed up and it appeared on 'My Computer' but I could not get my stuff from it because I could not open any picture/music/document on it, it stopped working. But it was saying 800+ gb left in it and I could open the HDD and saw my files/pictures/music/documents/videos so I was pretty sure my stuff still is in it.

After that I checked few things and realized it shows all disk 'unallocated' How can it be possible, I opened it once? I formatted my PC Disk C and it did not work after that, too. So my main question is, how can I solve this problem without losing and picture/video/music/document in it? I really need everything in it. All my 4 year work is in it. Hope we can find a way. Thanks a lot.

sounds like something got lost in the mix. Is the disk that you are using basic or dynamic. I dont think you can have FAT32 on a dynamic but I figured I would ask. I would run chkdsk from a floppy if you can reconize the drive.

If I insert a blank CD into either of my Cd writers I get asked if I would like to open a writeable folder etc which I say yes to as i want to copy files there then write the CD.

I guess windows knows it is a blank CD OK but then it comes up with D: (or E is not accessible. If I try to select the drive from my computer/explorer it says the same thing.

I have tried many different blank CD's - all do exactly the same. Also there is no searching as if a drive cannot read a CD properly.

If I put a written CD in either drive it can read the files no problem - the problem is only with blank CD's or writing CD's...

As usual any help is gratefully received I don't have a clue how to go about fixing this.

A:Bios not accessable

"LDR missing"Click to expand...

This seems that someone has deleted ntldr by mistake.
This error occurs when the partition marked as active does not contain the operating system boot files.

Two Issues.

1. Having the PC boot from the correct drive, properly partitioned with the boot partition set as "Active".

2. Having the right files in that partition.

You can change the active partition using fdisk. And you can change the first boot device (but using an optical drive with a Windows CD to boot from can cause you problems later) in the BIOS.

Using Fdisk.

1. Boot to a command prompt by using a boot disk (if you have one. Otherwise you can make one from any Windows 95/98/ME PC.
2. At the command prompt, type fdisk, and then press enter.
3. Click set active partition, choose the partition that you want to make active, and then hit enter.
4. Press Esc.
5. Remove the boot floppy disk, restart the computer.

The below information is from Microsoft.

If the NTLDR is missing or damaged try the Recovery Console.

HELP!!!!!!!! I have a network setup at home that consists of 2 wireless computers and 1 wired computer. The wired computer and one wireless are running XP Home SP 2 while the other wireless is running XP Media Edition, which I believe is SP 2 as well. On the wired PC, I can see and access the two wireless computers. The two wireless computers can access each other and see the wired computer, but neither one can access it. I keep getting the message " \\ ,,,,,,is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network." ,,,,,,is in place of the name of the computer. I did ipconfig/all and typed the ip address of the wired computer in the command line of one of the wireless computers and received the same message.

One thing that I have noticed is that the Windows firewall running on the wired computer is being controlled by group policy, while the others are not. Why, I do not know. After spending the entire day working on this, I was finally able to disable the windows firewall. I am still unable to connect.

Windows 8.1 PC, For some reason if I click on any pc or device in the network folder in file explorer it comes back with <xxxx> is not accessable.

I can access folders on these same inaccessible pcs from the homegroup folder in the same file explorer, just not the network folder in file explorer

(3) other PCs in the same workgroup are not having any issues accessing these PCs via the network folder in explorer. These PCs are all running windows 7. Unfortunately I don't have a second windows 8 pc for testing.

Based on other threads I think I've looked in the obvious places but its entirely possible that I my have overlooked something. Any suggestions much appreciated.

I am having a problem, not sure if its my computer or my isp and not sure what to check.
The problem is when I try to access my web site from my home computer, it doesn't always find it if I use the www in the addy. Other times it finds it with the www but not without it! Sometimes doesn't find either and sometimes finds both. I can access other sites without any problem, and others can access my site without any problem. Has just started happening past week or so.

Have run some programs to try to fix ie:
Symantec System Works One Button Checkup
Symantec System Works Disk Doctor
Symantec System Works Win Doctor
Symantec System Works Anti Virus (full scan)
Ad-aware Full Scan
Hi-jack this

Sometimes one of these seems to fix temporaraly (but doesn't say it has found anything) until I reboot computer, then problem returns.
Have had someone look at my registry but can't find anything obvious in there causing problem.
Have also checked DNS report and all is fine there.
Done a tracert and here are results

A:Selected web address not accessable...

Does it always find it if you use the IP address directly? Sure sounds like a misbehaving DNS.

Try using the following temporarily as your DNS servers:

Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)/Properties/General tab

I have a Western Digital external HD, plugs into the USB. And i cant acess it on my computer. I dont think it shows up in the device manager. my comp wont recognize the ecternal drive. What do i do?

A:External Hardive Not Accessable

A couple of questions to help diagnose the problem:

Has this external hard drive ever worked on this computer before?

What happens when you plug the drive into another computer? Does it work ok?

Does this external hard drive have it's own power source as well as the USB cable, or does it get it's power through the USB cable?

Is this a Dell computer by chance?

I have a user (non-administrator) sign on account that I always use. I need to install new software and update some existing software. When I try to load the disk, the screen says I need to use the administrator account to perform this function.
I tried to sign on to the administrator account and it says "account not found". The file for this account is empty.
What can I do? Thanks, jdoc

I've a problem with my external HDD. It's WD 1 My Passport Ultra, 1 TB and I had no problem with it until 4-5 days ago. It's formatted as NTFS and I'm using Windows 7, 32 bit.

Firstly, I couldn't copy files from pc to HDD, couldn't crate a new folder etc. So, I'd tried to do an error-checking. Right clicked onto the HDD, properties, Tools tab, check now, check both then start. I'd waited around 36 hours to complete, but it had stopped around 1/10 of the bar to complete. So, I'd clicked cancel. After that I couldn't access to the files anymore.

The HD light is always bright or blinks, changes. I can see it in the BIOS, device manager, control panel and even Computer without a name, but can't access to the files in it. When it plugged-in, it corrupt my internet and programs like when I scan the pc with antivirus programs.

When I tried to double-click or right click onto the HDD, it shows the circle that indicates loading but nothing happens. If I click other parts of windows explorer, it goes to not responding.

Of course I've tried to unplug and re-plug it, with other USB connections and another computer. Didn't work.
I've tried to scan it with Kaspersky and Avast, couldn't find anything. (Well, avast found 3-4 files then quarantied it but didn't solve the problem.) But I only could scan the pc because when HDD plugged-in, programs have paused.
I've tried SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker , couldn't find any integrity violations.

A:External HDD is detected but not accessable.

If it misbehaves in more than one USB port, I'd download Western Digital's diagnostic tools and see what it says. I think it's called Data Lifeguard. There's a couple of tests---short and extended, something like that. Try the short one first.

Hi - I've just finished formatting C: on my other PC, reinstalling windows and all. The second hard disk in my computer (previously named H:, now it's D appears to be inaccessable now. I can upen the root folder on the disk, but when I click on My Documents from there (My Documents is on D, I get an alert: "D:\My Documents is not accessible. Access is denied."

Does anybody have any idea why might be causing this, and/or how to fix it? I'd really appreciate your input - Thanks a lot in advance.

A:Second disk not accessable after format of first

ntfs security permissions are screwed up since the account no longer exists for that profile. You are going to have take ownership of the files.

First turn simple file sharing off if on (my computer/tools/folder options/view/make sure use simple file sharing is unchecked

Second right click on folder User Profile you are unable to access in Documents And Settings select properties/security/advanced/owner/select your user account/check replace owner on subcontainers and objects/apply/ok

Now you should be able to access your files!!!!
