  • is it possible to convert an external hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS?

    I have a WD 1 TB HARD drive with FAT32 extension and I try to copy files larger than 4 GB (which does NOT support the FAT32). I've been looking for a solution and I found that the best solution is converted to NTFS.

    My questions are, is there another way? If there is no other way, is there a possibility of data loss? How to convert?

    Convert to NTFS will not result in data loss (of course, there is always that chance but it is not intended to do and I haven't heard any problems with how it works under Vista) If you follow the instructions below.

    There is no other way if you want to copy the largest filses - only NtFS that will allow.  NTFS is better anyway because it also gives you more options seciurity and is better designed (in addition to being able to handle files of any size).

    Here is the procedure: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Convert-a-hard-disk-or-partition-to-NTFS-format.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck.

  • I want to move my hard drive from a computer with a motherboard dead to a newer machine. The activation process for Windows XP SP3 failed.

    I want to move my hard drive from a computer with a motherboard dead to a newer machine.  The activation process failed.  How can I get the operating system XP Professional sp3 reactive?  I have the code original and other info.

    original title: Moving the death machine drive

    Hello CarrolScott,

    The activation problem arose because the hardware on your current computer does not match that of the hardware on the machine whose mother is dead.

    The best option for the reactivation is to use the telephone line. This, unfortunately, is automated and may refuse to turn on your system; However, don't despair just rest on the line after the automated atcivation crossed its procedure and you will be transferred to a real person. Tell this person you've done, and it should be able to help activate.

  • Is it possible to add a hard drive to a VM running via a script or a program without using the user interface

    I'll try to ask this question clearly, but I ask that read you it carefully, because I can't do a great job of setting out clearly what I'm looking for.

    I know how to create a virtual disk in a batch file or a script.  I know how to have a running virtual machine to detect a newly added hard drive and format it in Linux, BACK, and NetWare. I do not have scripted this part, but I did it manually by adding records via the UI and then by doing the steps manually to make the operating system to detect and format the newly added drive. In each case, these steps are scriptable with the exception of the addition of the drive in the user interface.

    The only way I know to add a new hard disk to a virtual computer running is through the user interface. I don't know in a way that can contain script (for example vmrun or an API call) to make.

    I guess that maybe I can have the virtual machine to go into sleep mode and then add the HDD in the vmx file while the machine is in standby mode, then put the computer to sleep mode, although I have not tested this.

    My question is, ' can a virtual drive be added to a virtual machine running without using the user interface and without put the machine to sleep, or in other words in a script any?

I bought a cheap vacuum disc at Wal-Mart (Memorex) but it does not work in the PC disc drive - it has no brushes. A Utube video uses a 2-brush Phillips drive, but I want to confirm before buying another. Perhaps that the system 2-brush of cd/dvd lens cleaner SVC2330/27 Phillips?

  • Windows cannot read the disc in the drive E:\

    When I put a CD - R or DVD-R in the E: drive, I get a message "make sure the disc uses a format windows recognizes." If the drive is not formatted, you must format it before you use it. »
    I use new formatted discs, also when I put a CD - R in the drive E has some files word on it, it will start and I can see all the files and I can edit, print and save, but I can't add another word file, although there is plenty of space on the disk.
    I think that if a disc is not formatted when I put it in drive E I should get a pop-up with the option to format.

  • When you try to copy messages from Outlook Express to Live Mail, all of the .dbx except folders.dbx files copy OK. My new PC cannot read the disc to import messages (probably because that folders.dbx is missing?)

    I followed the contours of Ms. webesite steps to transfer my OE messages to my new LiveMail on my new PC. Instructions to mention to make sure that when you copy the message on a CD for transfer files to new PC that they must include the file "folders.dbx".  All my files message correctly copy except "folders.dbx".

    I guess that's why the new PC says there are no messages on the CD to be imported from (although I see that all of the .dbx files).

    Why is that I am having a problem copying "folders.dbx" and this is my problem in terms of imports?

    Create a new identity in OE and import the messages. This new storage location to transfer it to WLMail. It will be all new dbx files so no corruption should be gone.
