Use of the filesystem in Windows Vista Business

I had a neX61 in November last with Windows Vista Business and 120 GB disk space. I installed MS Office Standard 2007 and Visio, the disk of 2 months following its use grew much greated than the volume of data that I have placed on the system. I ran all the checks planned and all is good - no problems.

However I could not always represent 35 + concerts. I downloaded a tool on the web that says basically structure sizes and directory trees and showed that I should have 35 gigs of spare, i.e. If I added the directory sizes, there was a huge amount still free. I couldn't get to the bottom of this.

One day, Outlook 2007 crashed and rebuilds itself, when it rebuilt, suddenly space reappeared. Afterwards, I ran all the diagnosis of MS Outlook with no significant results. During the next 6 weeks, which space recovery file again gone so now its 50Gigs I losyt. I decided to uninstall Outlook, but so far it has not recovered from my disk space. Before that I use a hard reinstall of Vista Business Windoze of stuff over there?

See you soon


Right now, you have identified the exact problem, hell, I didn't even know this has the value automativcally of backup, the first 25Gigs swallowed the backup, then the next 4 subsequent in swallowed another 5 concerts a moment. Unfortunately, I had several images vmware which did not help matters.

Thanks man, I owe you a virtual beer.

  • Windows Live Messenger 2009 stops on Windows Vista Business


    For some time I have been using a desktop computer with Windows Vista Business (32 Bit) and for a few months now Windows Live Messenger 8 kept stop without reason.  I rejected, given that it happened only once a day, I have so open again and kept using it.

    Recently I installed the version 2009 (14.0.8064.206), when Microsoft announced it through Messenger itself.  Since I don't Live Messenger stops very often, sometimes it takes about half an hour after I connect, sometimes even when I'm not logged in.  The message is "Windows Live Messenger has stopped working", no code error, no file name.

    I have spent at various sites and tried the following without result:

    Removal of the installation, run the clean installation tool and reinstalling
    Repair the installation of Live Messenger
    clear the Cache of Contacts
    Run as administrator
    Compatibility mode for Windows XP SP2

    Is there anything else I can try?  Please let me know.

    Thank you



    Hi Angel,

    You are welcome. Yes, please relay the State after the clean boot, as it will help to exclude all background programs. Please also pass on the model of your PC. Also, here are a few additional things to check.

    1. Please check if you have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed.
    2. Please also relay if the problem occurs when you try to share a file, using a Webcam, or by sending an Instant Message only.

    The easiest way is with a crossover cable - a special wire to connect the two systems.
    You can get one at your local computer store - they are not expensive.

    Also check with the site of the manufacturer of your router, because they will have in-depth details on how to
    set up the network.

  • The product key you entered will not work with this edition of Windows Vista. You must run the Windows Vista Setup program or enter a Windows Vista business product key

    Product key bad for the wrong version?


    Recently the computer in business inherited from a friend, very fast and very good. Regardless of the operating system no - geniue, is with Vista Business, while the thumbnail of authentication is Vista Ultimate. I took a screenshot of what it says when I put Vista Ultimate product key: (it does not appear if you are unable to use it: P)

    He said: "the product key you entered will not work with this edition of Windows Vista. You must run the Windows Vista Setup program or enter a Windows Vista Business product key."

    How would the installation of Windows Vista? My files would still be there when you need him? My drivers would still exist? No matter what to get deleted or become unusable? He would return to SP1? Any response is welcome.

    You can order form of the manufacturer's recovery media.

    The reason why the system as non-authentique shows currently is using a license in Volume KMS - these licenses must be re-activated at least every 6 months by connecting to the KMS user license activation server.

    It will require a reformat and reinstall whatever you do, unless you can connect to the KMS - Volume media server cannot be upgraded under normal conditions.

    I am a 67-year-old educator specialized for 10 children with special needs.  Eelle have degrees of autism and require very individualized changes of their standardized curriculum class in public schools.  My laptop was purchased in 2007, and while she is an old lady like me, she is reliable, powerful and small enough horse for me to work on the fly... I just want to her top in order to exploit one of my docking stations or both at the same time...

AND ONLY 2 USB PORTS from where I work, 2 external hard drives, 2 printers; 2 scanners; 1 external TV/monitor, 1 keyboard, 1 ball control, external speakers and sinc various gps units, Ipods, cell phones, etc etc etc...  I did all this by the docking station to a generic port Targus 3 unit and an extension of USB Belkin 7port...

    UPDATE  Mahalo for anyone who has tried to help me with this question... I read everything that was recommended, but nothing has addressed this issue directly.

    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem


    Formatting/reinstalling is overkill. A bit like buying a new car because you have a flat tire.

    To reinstall, you can use either the volume of recovery or the recovery disc, both should work pretty much the same. In general, the product key is located on the system like a sticker (on laptops usually on the bottom). If you can't find yours, you should contact the provider or your network administrator (and in fact, if there is a working system, you should contact them before doing anything).

    Before you do this right, you can try this: click Start and type CMD. Right click on the menu entry that appears and choose "Run as Administrator". Click on continue in the UAC prompt. From the command line, run:



    ipconfig / renew

    Allow everyone to finish (return to the command line) before proceeding to the next. When you are finished, close the command prompt. See if that helps with your problems of connection.
