Windows running in the backup drive D: after system reboot

I rebooted my system yesterday and discovered that it had been done in the backup drive D which has only 1 g backup space. I can't do another reboot because there is no space in the drive.

My question is: A) how to get the operating system to run on the main C drive

(B) I'll be able to remove the old operating system to drive D

Dell XPS 1530

Vista 32 bit

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you

Delete older backups and free up space on the D drive.

To remove old backup files, under the backup of data files, click View backups.

You can then select the backups of files that you want to delete, which will free up disk space. Remove an entry in the list will not affect the other backups. If you think that you don't need one version of your files from a certain backup period, you can delete that backup. We recommend that you always keep the most recent backup.

  • Backup failed with error 18: the backup drive is not found

    Hello

    My guard time capsule saying "Backup failed" for a few days and I cannot access the old backup files either (when I enter my time machine it shows 'today', which is kind of scary, although I know that my old files is still there). I tried many ways to trouble shoot this problem, but none of this has worked. In my opinion, it's more a network problem and I made sure I connect Wi - Fi even my time capsule created.

    So far I have tried:

    -Delete the files from my internet (com.apple.airport.preferences.plist; preferences.plist and NetworkInterfaces.plist, etc.) and restart my mac

    -Remove TimeMachine.plist and restart my mac

    -Hard reset of my time capsule. Went through all configurations with success but then still backup missed (I hear the running time capsule when it is by train).

    I share this time capsule with my wife and she has no problem with that.

    I can only think of a possible alternation I did which could cause this problem.

    Because of unstable WiFi problem, I had deleted

    com Apple.Airport.Preferences.plist

    com.Apple.Network.identification.plist

    NetworkInterfaces.plist

    Preferences.plist

    or other files and reboot my mac * before * I had this problem with time capsule.

    However, this is not the first time I do it, and it wasn't a problem before...

    This could be the reason? If so, how to restore the network settings?

    Please help me with this problem. Really appreciate!

  • I can't use windows Explorer or the network drive mapping to access my NAS drive more.

    original title: strange NAS problem

    Hi everyone I can't seem to fix this strange problem.

    I can't use windows Explorer or the network drive mapping to access my NAS drive more.
    I am running windows 7 Professional 32-bit on my PC, and until about a week ago she accessed from my PC very well.

    The location could not be reached and have not been able to run since said today that I went to update it and the drive mapped. I'm at my wits end.

    Here is some info.

    I can access to other computers and devices on my network.

    I can access the internet.
    I have a windows XP PC in the House who can always connect to my fine NAS drive (even if it's not mine).
    I PING the NAS drive.
    The NAS drive will do the same if connected via cable or by wireless.

    UPDATE: after the implementation of a shared folder on a Windows XP computer on the same network I am also unable to acsess the part of my PC. So I can assume that I can't browse all share folders or NAS drives on my local network.

    Help, please.

    Thanks for the help, but I fixed my problem

    Here's what I did in case anyone wants to know.

    I went into Device Manager and went to network adapters.
    I then expanded this section and under view changed to display hidden items.
    Several hundred elements appears (for most 6to4 adapters) and I deleted all the.
    Then click scan for new hardware.
    And... everything works again! YAY!

  • Windows Update includes the Toshiba driver updates?

    Hello

    Windows Update includes the Toshiba driver updates?

    And if yes, do you know what drivers are included in Windows Update and that would be excluded?

    Thank you...

    Hello

    Microsoft and Toshiba updates are two different things.
    Toshiba drivers are offered by Toshiba, and these drivers are tested by Toshiba. Toshiba has developed a small tool called TEMPRO. This tool runs in the background and look for information on available updates.
    All updates of drivers, tools and utilities does not update automatically. It can be done by the owner of the laptop. TEMPRO just pick up info on the net and to inform the owner of the laptop.

    Microsoft updates are probably known to you. These updates are Microsoft and Toshiba has no influence on this.
    When you check the list of available updates may have included updates to the WLAN/LAN card, driver of the touchpad and device ACPI Toshiba x 64. This is defined as optional updates and cannot be updated.

    To be honest you should not update at all. For hardware use drivers provided by Toshiba only.

    Help, please! Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH40F SCSI CdRom Device) because the driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

    Hello

    Code 39 means that the driver is corrupted or missing.

    Please make all below even if you have done some before as it is often the set of operations which solves
    the question.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double-click on the device - driver tab - click
    Update the drivers (this will probably do nothing) - then RIGHT click the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT
    This will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue below.

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a loose cable or
    slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Also check with your system manufacturer to see if there are any updated drivers for your DVD. Or even if it
    are you can reinstall the 'old'. Many use Windows default drivers however some special aura
    ones. Also check the website of the manufacturer of the car.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

  • Time Machine - an exclusion different backup for the backup drives different time machine

    I hope someone can help me.

    For these past years, I used 2 Time Machine backups to keep all safe. I have 1 backup x who lives at home and is 3 times the size of my disk. I also have a second drive of laptop that I travel with, which is partitioned to give a little time machine backup, more than 1.5 TB of "overflow storage (for movies, video files, etc).

    Recently however, I realized that my "storage of listening" actually contains a large amount of data I wouldn't lose (especially the photos of my children because they were born), so now I want to save this drive as well.

    If my ideal situation is to have a huge drive I leave at home. This contains backups of the computer AND 'excess of storage' backup. It's pretty simple to implement.

    But can someone tell me if my trip backup, will try also to the other partition of the backup drive? And if so, is there anyway to give different time machine backups different exclusions.

    Hope that makes sense and hope that someone can help me.

    Thank you
    John

    You will need to manually change the exclusions when you going on a trip. There isn't a way to change automatically.

    You say that you have started from the XP CD, but something is wrong with that
    you do. Just boot from the CD and follow the prompts for a
