[SOLVED] How do I delete a duplicate copy of winXP?

Q: [SOLVED] How do I delete a duplicate copy of winXP?

I began receiving messages about corrupted files in XP and so tried to repair option to reinstall the corrupted files, but somehow ended up completely reinstalling into a second directory.

Both directories are on my C drive. One, the original, is still the same. All software installed and working the same as before my attempt. The second, Windows.0, is XP with nothing installed, fresh condition.

As this isn't an upgrade from another windows, I'm don't know how to get rid of this second windows.

Also, everytime I reboot my computer, it asks me which windows I want to use.
Not to mention the wasted disk space...

How can I get rid of these!!??

Simple problem - copy sheet then delete duplicate rows

I have a worksheet that is composed a header row, and columns of data (client call results).
Each client is identified by a unique ID number in column A, a seperate column F has the 'call number, from 1 to x'.
So a client can have a single or multiple rows of data. Each client group of rows is sequenced with call 1 as line 1, call 2 at line 2, etc. etc. as your proceed down the rows.
The entire worksheet is already sorted (with a header row) ascending by client id and call #

What I want to accomplish is this

1 - copy the existing worksheet (CallRecords) to a new worksheet (CallToday)
2 - in the new worksheet, scan down (or up) from first data row (2) to the last row {ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row} and
delete duplicate rows of the Client ID retaining the row with the max call number for that client id.
3 - sort the new worksheet (CallToday) ascending by column (G) date, and column (H) time.

Thanks for your help. I am a newbie to VBA.

Not a problem, since you don't need it for this ; a combination of built-in functions will do.

It's not clear if you have blanks in col A -- if you do, that can be easily fixed.

See the attached. The list of ID #s in col A of Sheet2 was extracted from Sheet1 using Advanced Filter (unique records only). The formulas in col B of Sheet2 pull in the value from col B of Sheet1 (per the last row for each ID #).

Post back if you need help interpreting the formulas.

For various reasons, I find that a large number of my music tracks in iTunes are duplicated. I wanted to delete these but don't relish trawling through about 3000+ tracks in the "My Music" section and deleting the unwanted ones individually!

Hi.
I am using an Excel worksheet with several thousand records listed. On a daily basis, I get an updated list, but I need to keep hold of some of the 'old' records.
At present I'm copying the new list, adding it to the end of my existing list and then filtering it so that only unique records are visible.
Obviously, this means the list is ever-increasing with many duplicated records (hidden or otherwise).
Is there a way to simply delete the duplicate records (so I can just keep one record of each) rather than hide them?

This is another minor annoyance, related to my earlier post today. I attempted to resolve the "Unlock Computer" message in switching users by creating a password for myself in Control Panel/User Accounts. It did not work.
That is, it was not the password required to unlock the pc but now is required whenever I attempt to log on. There seems to be no option to re-set or entirely delete the password, which on my home pc is annoying and unnecessary. I suspect there is a way to do this?

Of course, that still leaves the "unlock computer" problem, but that is another issue.

I hate windoze

I am here at work trying to do some maintenance before I start on a month long binge to update all the websites and server software. Windoze has fought me the entire way, from the defrag to the moving of folders. I hate windoze.

Now I can't even move some psd files I created in Gimp a while ago. Windows just keeps saying that they are being used by another program. There is no program using them. I have been running SpyBot S&D and F-Prot all day so I really doubt it's security related and I have closed down all the programs running before trying to move them. Still says some phantom program is using them. Even tried a restart with no results. Did I mention that I really hate windoze?

Well...first things first.System manufacturer and model?How did the system come to have what you refer to as a "copy"?How large is the hard drive...better yet, please post a screenshot from Disk Management.Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different ... Read more

Hi,

I keep receiving notifications that my IMAP mail server is full and need to clean it up by deleting older emails.

I mainly use outlook 2007 to manage my 4 email accounts in 4 seperate folders and so I made .pst backup of all my email accounts but when I delete them from my IMAP and restore the back up there appear again in my IMAP server.

I have tried to make different (offline) folders but it seems I cannot restore a back up in to this. I also tried archiving my folders but since I use 4 different email accounts, the archive keeps overwriting the folders with the last email account selected.

All I want is: place my back up emails in a seperate (offline) folder per account so I can at least access my old emails in Outlook after I have deleted them from my imap server (I understand and accept that than I can only read those emails from my harddrive and not any more on my tablet or phone, but at leas I have one place where I can find them...).

Thanks!

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.

I just bought and began to set up a WinXP Home machine and am having trouble with items in the Startup folder. Specifically, shortcuts I place in the Startup folder are being run twice at startup. MSCONFIG lists the duplicates as being in the "Startup" and "Common Startup" locations. If I uncheck "Common Startup" the items disappear completely. If I uncheck "Startup" they reappear in "Startup" the next time I reboot (and are again run twice).

When I look in the "C:\Documents and Settings\David J. Bookbinder\Start Menu" folder, only top-level shortcuts are there -- no Startup folder. Where is this duplicate "Startup" location, and how can I prevent items from appearing both in the "Common Startup" location (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) and this mystery location?

Hi! I do not know when and why did this happen but whoever invented this paranoid (hidemysecretsfrommywife) control system of sharing and permissions should be declared as the Enemy of Mankind, or the Antichrist!
I can understand that one wants to protect C: from malwares. But have you seen a malware attacking an external drive???

I have Windows7, I have an external drive where I store all my pictures taken and my music files. I already tried everything advanced sharing and so on. Still: I can only create a new folder with a right click in the drive or inside existing folders but I can not do anything else. The disk is write protected, check write permissions.
In fact, the disk isn't write protected.

If I create a new folder, I can put in it and do whatever I want inside the new folder. But I have no permission to do anything outside a new folder, i.e. with my original media files!

Why? Who does benefit from this? What is this craziness???

A:[SOLVED] No permission to create/ move, copy, delete files in external hard drive

Hi akofalvi.

Try this:

1. Start > Run "cmd" (this opens a command prompt window)
2. type--> diskpart (this will open another command window in a few seconds)
3. type--> list volume (this will list all of the volumes currently recognized in your system)
4. type--> select volume # (this number is going to be your external drive)
5. type--> attributes disk clear readonly

I will say this: this procedure has been met with mixed results and your problem may return. Some have even had this issue and it turned out to be a setting in Windows Media Player of all things (whoda thunk?) One responder in a forum had this to say about this very problem: what i found to fix this was to remove the settings in media player allowing it to re-organize and rename files, after which i went to the tools/advanced/restore media library and allowed it to dump my current library and reset it. That's just an FYI.

I hope that'll help. Let me know.

Good day!

Mike

PS: As an afterthought, you may need to log in to the REAL administrator account (which needs to be activated manually) and set your permissions there for your regular user name. We'll go down that path if the above procedure doesn't net you anything positive.

I have Windows 7. So, the trouble started a couple days ago. I downloaded an update for Avast! Free Antivirus. After updating, it asked to restart the computer - I clicked OK. Upon restarted, Windows 7 wouldn't boot at all. After some experimenting, I determined it was probably a driver issue (I couldn't even start Safe Mode, so it must've been a core driver). I used an old system image stored on an external hard drive to restore my primary SSD. It worked, but now the other SSD that I have also has a mysterious copy of windows that never existed previously. It's taking up a lot of room, and I'm fairly certain it isn't being used at all. I want to delete it to free up space (the secondary SSD is dedicated only to video games) but I don't want to screw anything up. Can I delete the mysterious copy of Win7 from my secondary SSD without any issues? Pictures below:

As you can see, it looks as if Progenitor (the original SSD) is still the drive running the OS (I assume that's what the Windows logo next to it means).



The next two images seem to show that Windows is still fully installed and operational on Progenitor (the original SSD that was restored by the system image on Eddy (the external hard drive)).





This is where I find things get weird. While I distinctly remember the system image restoration saying that it was restoring drive C (Progenitor), a seemingly-full installation of Windows also seems to have been put onto Legacy (the secondary, gaming-dedicate... Read more

A:Duplicate copy of Win7 on secondary SSD after restoring old system img

You can probably safely delete the Windows install on Legacy...

But before you do... (with the power off) disconnect Legacy's SATA cable and make sure that you can boot from Progenitor. That will make sure that no files are needed from Legacy in order to boot. Sometimes these restores can cause the boot tables to get messed up between drives, especially when it restored your data to a different drive that what it said it was going to. You never know what might have happened to the BCD tables.

Don't do any deletion until you're positive that you can boot from Progenitor alone.

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 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?

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.

I am getting rid of my wifes old iphone and I have transferred all of the pictures and videos from it to this computer. The problem is I think I have tons of duplicates now since I am pretty sure I had transferred them all a while ago. How can I check the computer for duplicate pictures and whats the fastest way to delete the duplicates? They are in different places on the computer but the most recent I put in a folder on the desktop. I would hate to delete a picture since 99% of them are of my daughter from when she was born to now basically.

A:how to find and delete duplicate images/videos?

Hello Nikeman123

I think DoubleKiller - find and remove duplicate files (Big Bang enterprises) is what you're looking for. Small yet effective.

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.
