  • Help! All files on disk of data lost after deleting a user account in Windows Vista


    I delete a user account on Windows Vista. After the deleted account, I can't access any files stored on my data disc (not c :), how can I access these data again?

    The data are very important to me. Help, please


    Alex Ho


    Thanks for posting in the Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate that you try to recover the data after the deletion of the user account in Windows Vista.

    Since you've already deleted the user account, you would not be able to recover the data.

    However, you can use any third party to the data recovery software.

    NOTE: using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    Take a look at my answer, complete instructions.

    Basically speaking, Dell officially supports Windows 2000 and Windows XP on Dell Latitude D610 (and other models of Dx10).

    However it can really run Windows Vista and 7 at least, as long as you max out the RAM (2 GB, 2 x 1 GB, can be purchased at a great price in eBay) and install the drivers, in particular graphics drivers, look in Device Manager and see what drivers are needed manually.

    If you're lucky to have a D610 with ATi graphics card then you can even run Windows 8 and 10 with all drivers available, and I can tell you that it won't be slow dog not unlike a lot of people say, I don't have something similar (a HP Compaq nx8220) in common use. Keep as lean as possible (not bloatwares, anti-virus etc.) system, and it will serve you well.

    To create a new user profile

    To create a new profile, you must first create a new user account. When the account is created, a profile will also be created.

    1. Open a user account by clicking on the button start , by clicking on the Control Panel, click user accounts and family safety (or by clicking on user accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking user accounts.

    2. Click on manage another account. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    3. Click on create a new account.

    4. Type the name you want to assign to the user account, click an account type, and then click on create an account.

    To copy files to the new user profile

    After creating the profile, you can copy the files from the existing profile. You must have at least three user accounts on the computer to perform these operations, including the new account that you created.

    1. Log on as a user other than the new user that you created or the user that you want to copy the files.

    2. Open Documents by clicking on the button start , and then clicking Documents.

    3. Click on the Tools menu, and then click Folder Options.

      If you don't see the Tools menu, press ALT.

    4. Click the view tab, click hidden files and folders, clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, and then click OK.

    5. Find the C:\Users\Old_Username folder, where C is the drive that Windows is installed, and where ancien_nom_utilisateur represents the name of the profile you want to copy the files to.

    6. Select all the files and folders in this folder, except the following files:

      • Ntuser.dat

      • Ntuser.dat.log

      • Ntuser.ini

    7. Click the Edit menu and then click on copy.

      If you don't see the Edit menu, press ALT.

    8. Look for the C:\Users\New_Username folder, where C represents the drive Windows is installed, and New_Username is the name of the new user profile you created.

    9. Click the Edit menu and then click on paste.

      If you don't see the Edit menu, press ALT.

    10. Sign out and then sign back in as a new user.

      If you have messages in e-mail, such as Windows Mail, you must import your e-mail messages and addresses to the new user profile before you delete the old profile. If everything is working properly, you can delete the old profile.

  • You want to delete the user account from the computer and turn the computer on a workgrout or a homegroup.

    Original title: My Windows 7 laptop is plugged in and not on a network. My lack of understanding of the work and networking groups made me make a mess in the implementation

    I implemented 'users' as I could and now I find that in large part is loaded on my computer and I didn't need to have to deal with two identities to myself.  Can I fix or would it not be better to reinstall Windows a user, a set of files on all and the guest account will be switched off.  In addition, even though my computer says that it is a working group, the only internet connection I have is the LAN.  Can someone put me directly.

    Thanks in advance

    This can be achieved using some dynamic measurements, to hide the region if the calendar is the display month view when loading the page and to show/hide the region when you click the list/month selector.

    Add a static region ID to region calendar for use in jQuery selectors.

    Name: See the region list - load

    Event: Loading the page

    Condition: Expression of JavaScript

    Value:$('#static-region-id .fc-month-view').length > 0

    Real Action

    Action: Hide

    Selection type: Region


    Nom : See the region list - click

    Event: Click

    Selection type: jQuery Selector

    jQuery Selector:.fc-button-group button

    Condition: Expression of JavaScript

    Action: Show
