Windows 7

"E:/ There is not enough space on the disk" How do you fix this?
I was trying to install Microsoft Office Home and Student."E There is not enough space on the disk" was the error code I got. Also, the C hard drive is full. I was wondering how to clean it up without deleting anything.

Windows 7 SP1 Install problem
Trying to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64 (now using windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe). I get the "[LINK]" problem.

The webpage for this error says the problem can be:

* The system partition isn’t automatically mounted, or made accessible to Windows, during startup.
* A hard disk containing the system partition was removed prior to beginning SP1 installation.
* Windows is running on a storage area network (SAN), and access to the system partition has been disabled.
* A disk management tool from another software manufacturer was used to copy (or clone) the disk or partition on which you’re trying to install SP1.

The system partition on my SSD drive is 100MB, is active, is not removed, is not on an SAN, and was not created using a disk or partition management tool. I've used Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management to check the above. Still get the error.

Not booting up after shrink volume
Few days ago I create a partition in my Hard disk through Shrink Volume. But after restarting it not booting up, after company logo one white line blink. Now I sanitize my hard disk, or what I should do.

Not have installation disk: how to make backup
I just got my new computer with windows home premium. I installed MS security essentials, and Firefox as my alternate browser.

Now I'm running my first Backup using 'create system image'. I will create a system repair disk, does it matter if I use a CD or a DVD. And will this be a start-up disk if I'm in troublesince I did not get any installation disk with the purchase.

Any other suggestions about running a clean computer would be appreciated, since my computers usually and up somewhat cluttered.

Can't Backup Files
I just reformatted last week and all is well but I went to back up my docs tonight and I got this message: windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file.!?! I am logged on as administrator. I can't figure out what is going on.

Retrieving docs from back up disk
I had to do a system recovery because screen was black with cursor flashing. I installed 7 disk after being prompted to do so to back up files. One I did a system recover the files are showing as wim files and when I try to open it pics of internet explore.

transfer users' telephone numbers from sql database to active directory
How can I transfer users' telephone numbers from sql database to active directory users properties. I have nearly 5000 users in sql database.

Give read/writer permision to user
I have Desktop system with Window XP SP2 with NTFS partition. In the system I have three user, Administrator, Account and Visitor. Account has all the permission as Administrator.

I want to give only read only permission to the user Visitor. The visitor can only read, copy but not paste or delete any file in the drive.

Swap file location
My Dell Studio XPS with Win 7/64bit has performed extremely well with the page file on the system drive, set at system managed size since installed. At the time I had considered moving the page file as that was what I had done with XP following the conventional wisdom at that time.

Upon researching Win 7 I found most experts, including Fred Langa felt that this was no longer necessary as the operating system was greatly improved. After reading the previous post on this I've decided to try it, mainly to see if there's any difference in system images and backups.
Two questions:
Is it still beneficial to format partition as Fat32?
Does it matter if 2nd disk is faster than disk operating system is on?

How to recover data from a dead hard drive?
The 80GB HD on my old XP machine recently gave me its valedictory BSOD and is now dead as a hammer. The drive spins up just fine, but nothing I tried enabled me to boot up, as there appears to be significant damage to the boot sector.

No problem; that computer was 6 years old anyway, so it was a good reason for me to upgrade to a brand new W7 Pro machine with a 1TB HD,which I've now done.

I want to transfer the files off my old HD with my handy dandy USB3 SATA to USB adaptor, power up the old HD (and yes, it is spinning fine), and plug the adaptor's USB cable into a USB3 port on my new computer, the old HD doesn't appear as a drive in My Computer.

I can see my usual C: and D: partitions, but no other drive letter appears.

I'm assuming that this is because file sharing was off on the old HD, If I'm right, how can I enable sharing of the old C: drive, or by any othermeans get that old C: drive to appear in My Computer in W7 so I can transfer files from the old HD to the new one? Am I totally hosed, or is there a way to make the old HD visible on the new machine?

Subfolder on external drive as backup location?
There doesn't seem to be any way of specifying a subfolder on an external hard drive as a backup location - the list of backup destinations presented to me only includes top-level locations, e.g. LaCie (G. Am I missing something,

Incidentally I've already discovered that I can't make an image of my complete hard drive using Windows Backup because Dell has set up a recovery partition formatted as FAT32.

So looks like a third-party utility is required if I want to do anything more than very basic backup.

Accessing NTFS HD from DOS booted USB drive
I can boot my USD drive into DOS, and I'm looking for ways to get information off the hard drive once in DOS.

New external HD's not showing up in 'Computer' in Windows 7.
I just attached two Western Digital 'My Book' (FAT32 format, USB connect) to my computer and they seemed to install ok but they are not showing up in 'Computer' .

so I can not use them. They are however showing up in 'Devices and Printers'. Why won't 'Windows 7' give these guys a drive number so that I can use them?.

Temporarily disabling a partition
I've recently purchased an external hard drive case and a 160 GB hard drive to use for back-up and data transfer. I've made 3 partitions using the Computer Management program in Windows XP.

I was wondering if there is any way to temporarily disable a partition so that it doesn't get infected with a virus because I want to use my external HDD to transfer data from my friends' computers, but here in the dorms not everyone is as diligent in protecting their computers as I am, so many of my friends' PCs are infected.

Because I also want to use one of the partitions for back-up, I don't want to lose my data.

Plus, trying to salvage data by transferring it to my PC, then re-formatting the partition, then transferring back is such a headache! I'm not very familiar with using the Computer Management feature in Windows,

Also, now that I think about it, does anyone know if there's any way to install an anti-virus program on removable media like a USB flash drive That way the viruses could be stopped before infecting the flash drive, or also scanning the host computer off the flash drive.

Windows Easy Transfer Reports Where?
I used WET for the first time today to move a user's files from his old Vista PC to a new Win7 Home Premium PC. When the transfer completed, it showed what got transferred, what programs didn't transfer, and what programs might need to be reinstalled.

The report screens said I could look at those reports again by going to the Start|Programs menu and finding an entry for WET Reports.

I don't see that menu entry anywhere?

Easy Transfer with Belkin's cable kit
I feel like I'm wimping out by using Easy Transfer with Belkin's cable kit. Should I install my old programs on 7 before I start the transfer? Or does it matter?

Windows Easy Transfer XP Backups
I'm getting a new computer in a week and I ordered Win 7 Home Ultimate which I'll be installing. My current PC has Win XP which I religiously do a full backup every 2 weeks to a external USB HHD.between there is no partition for XP so that it would have been easy to do recovery if anything happened.

I did download the correct 32 bit Windows Easy Transfer program to my current PC.

My question is after I load Win 7 on the new PC and use my last backup for Windows Easy Transfer the files and folders (and any programs which will work) will Windows Easy Transferdisregard my XP OS and only transfer the data or will I have to painstakingly pick and choose what I want (which is everything possible).

Windows Easy Transfer
I am trying to transfer my files and settings from old WinXP to new Win7, using Windows 7 Easy Transfer. The wizard is pretty straightforward and all went well until I clicked Transfer. I got an error message that said not enough disk space.

(It did not say which PC.) The transfer size is 32 GB, but I have 550 GB available on Win7. The XP PC has only 10 GB free, but whyshould that matter? I am using the network transfer option on my home network.
And yes, the Win7 PC is marked as the "new" computer.

NTFS HD sector number to filename.
I have a bad sector on my NTFS HD. I know the sector number range from Spinrite. How do I find out the filename or directory it is storing? This is a cd storage drive with no OS. I can copyeverything but the file or directory that has the bad sectors in it to another drive and then just add the data back from the cd to complete the process.

Creating System Image
I tried to create a System Image on my external hard drive but it says "this drive cannot not be used to store System Image because it is not formatted with NTFS" . I am a noviceuser and am not sure what NTFS is and can I change the format to NTFS ,or will it delete what I have on the drive now.
