In fact to prevent 'desktop.ini' be queued to copy on DVD; reject the option "hide files".

As has been frequently posted before on many sites around the internet, Windows 7 adds the file "desktop.ini" to the queue ready to burn to a CD or DVD. I want him to stop.

I don't want to not read even the slightest thing about "hide system files", which is a frequently repeated failure to resolve, i.e. a hack stinky. In addition, I will absolutely not to hide all files system anyway.

The file 'desktop.ini' listed on a data disc or video is clearly very bad behavior: some respondents stated that the "desktop.ini" file is not actually burned. I don't like: if it won't be burned, it should not appear in the queue, and its appearance is a mistake.

Others have mentioned that they always just remove it. Although "duh", so do I. But I do not want to remember, especially when preparing backup discs, which contain often very many files, where I could not notice or don't forget to look for.

So here's the deal: the answers I want are those who

(1) involve waste clicks is more after completing a single time correction.

(2) let me continue, in perpetutity contemplate all the files that are actually on my discs, hidden or not.

(3) I don't see really each particular file that will be burned on ever CD and DVD that I prepare, and

(4) the depricated "desktop.ini" file which is very well on all the folders on my hard drive is not present on my CD or DVD.

    You don't need to change all attributes on these files.  All you have to do is show off system files in Solution Explorer.  Hidden files can always be on.  Then, they will not appear on the desktop, but they'll appear when you search using the file Explorer.  And everything still works.

    Desktop.ini is a file hidden, protected operating system, in some cases, that stores information about the customization of the folder.  Given that the office is a folder (C:\Users\\Desktop), it can contain this file.  It's OK to delete the file.  To prevent it from appearing, go to control panel > folder options and turn off the display of hidden files or system files.

    You can also hide system files.

  • How to stop the desktop.ini ' ready to be written to the disk?

    Hello everyone,

    I want to warn the desktop.ini (or any other hidden system file) automatically added to the list of "files ready to be written to disk.

    1. I know the desktop.ini file is, I know that it is harmless and that it only stores information about the settings of the folder and stuff like that. And I know that it can be deleted without worry (except the loss of the settings of the folder, I don't care about) but I want to remove it, anyway, as I
    1.1. to burn own discs without all the files on them that do not need to be there.
    1.2. don't always want to see the file when I am looking at the contents of a CD/DVD-ROM.
    1.3 still won't delete the file manually.

    2. I don't want simly hide system files, because I want to see them in other folders and hide a file does not mean deleting the file.

    3. I don't want to change access rights to the folder that is used as a temporary folder for "Files ready to be written on the disc" so that the user that I use windows with has no write access, because I don't want to lose the ability to burn other files with Windows Desktop using this user.

    And even better: is it possible (perhaps a registry entry) which prevents writing these files desktop.ini in general to Windows 7?

    Thank you very much for your answers! :)

    Kind regards


    This file will be always included when burning data on the disk as it is by design and the file is required to be included. Therefore, there is no other way to exclude the file when burning the disc.

    I suspect that it was abnormal and error of windows system, the first time I run the PC after reformatting and restoring, there was no such desktop.ini in the recordable media. I notice it start up after microsoft windows LIVE essential and games for windows LIVE installation.

    I have made many try hard but he still see the intermittently. even with security update and latest ms windows, updates essential...

    first step, type "regedit" in start search, to run the registry editor program.

    then go to the Edit menu, and then search FOR "shell32.dll,-21815", in:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\ {...}

    check with "shell32.dll,-21815" and the relative path "Microsoft\Windows\burn\burn."

    If so found,

    Export the registry and save it as burner.reg. then,

    only remove the "localizedname' and the 'attributes' and keep the rest.  (CORRECTION)

    then FIND 'Windows\Burn\', look for this register with the address "c:\user\...\AppData\...". Microsoft\Windows\burn\burn' or

    You see probably the desktop.ini file that stores the office properties in Windows because you have turned on see the hidden files and folders.

  • Satellite U400 - I confused speed up my system - removed desktop.ini icon

    Some time ago I moved (or deleted) a desktop.ini icon.
    This changed the way files/documents are stored on my computer.

    I get a lot of shortcuts that I did not do and seem to not be connected to anything.
    There are a lot of ntuser.ini and NTUSER. Icons DAT in different folders.

    The files are duplicated, and appear in paces I put them.
    No document is missing, but it takes time to find them; the logic of the production system seems to be lost.

    How to restore the original system? I don't remember when I made this mistake, and I wonder if I did a system restore or something like that could happen to all the software that I subsequently towards the down loaded.

    I'm not very expert in computers, as you may have guessed.

    I have Satellite U400 and Vista.


    Have you tried using Windows Vista system restore? You can set the operating system goes back to an earlier era. Therefore, you must go into the advanced boot menu, select fix my computer, and then click System Restore.

    In the worst cases, you reinstall the full operating system. You can use the function of HARD drive recovery or the Toshiba Recovery disk you burning?

    Good luck!

  • When I start my system, some notifications invites to the top of their own and I still see the desktop.ini file in my documents/files please what this means?

    Every time I start my system, the Lync appears, a modem exe shortcut. files also appears, how can I stop this?

    I want to know the meaning of desktop.ini, I remove cause it's to show in most of my documents?

    Your thread was started successfully in the forum comments, so I moved it to the windows 'Repair and recovery' forum where is is more on the subject.  You must return to your topic and we tell which version of Windows you are using.

    Look in your startup folder to see if you see Lync and modem.exe shortcuts in this folder.  If so, remove them and you should no longer see these pop-ups when you connect.

    You can get rid of him, but it can return.  Desktop.ini is usually a file hidden, so you must have the display of hidden files and folders active if you do not see it.  Desktop.ini is a file that is present in many files and it is used by the process to "customize the folder.  It allows you to specify multiple behaviors to a folder and what desired icon displayed for a folder.  See for a more in-depth explanation of the desktop.ini file.  For certain folders such as My Documents, you should probably leave it alone.  It won't hurt anything especially if you do remove it, but the folder will then behave like any other folder, you can create.

    Hi Merlman,

    It looks like your system may still have infected files that are not recognized by the scanning software. If system restore has failed to solve this problem, the next step would be to try to repair all files in Windows by performing a SFC/scannow:

    Remember that your system may have been corrupted too, and you may also need to perform a repair installation: (it indicates if a later version of Internet Explorer is installed and can apply to your system).

    Do you know when this problem started?  Try a system restore to a point in time BEFORE the problem started.  Here is the procedure:  Don't forget to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points.  If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two.  NOTE: You will need to re - install any software and updates that you have installed between now and the restore point, but you can use Windows Update for updates. You may need to re - download the pictures, but the restoration of the system normally does not affect data files so it's probably not necessary.

    BTW, do not delete the desktop.ini file - this is important.

    I hope this helps.
