  • How can I copy the folder my documents in my iCloud drive and then I sync the two after that?

    How can I copy the folder my documents in my iCloud drive and then I sync the two after that?

    You can simply drag in iCloud reader, but I pass and move documents in their files app instead. It will probably take a while to download all documents.

    It is not a way to sync without some third party software that synchronizes folders, or learn how to use rsync in the Terminal.

    Instead of synchronization, simply use the iCloud drive in the 'Documents' folder after you move the files.

  • XPS 420 - HARD drive failed, performing a clean install of Vista on the new HARD drive.

    Hey everybody,

    My on my XPS 420 HARD drive failed and I'm trying to reinstall Vista using the disc that came with my machine back when I bought it.

    I bought a new WD10EZEXAZ (1 TB Serial ATA HDD), he rose in the same dwelling as my old HDD (ST3750630AS * Barracuda 7200.11*). I start the PC and goto Setup, it recognizes the HARD drive in the blue menu.

    Then I boot with the CD of Vista that came with my system. I proceed as indicated through the following url:

    Clean install of Vista

    After its copied files, expanded the files, installed features, updates installed... it goes to "Complete Installation" and throws an error message: "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on a hardware on this computer."

    I tried a few things I've seen posted on the internet, including trying to run msoobe.exe via command line. When I did, it allows me to Setup user... but finally I get sent to this message of error or another telling me I have to reinstall Windows.

    I read else where some hard disks may not compatible with the Dell disk provides with my OEM machine. If this is the case, can someone advise? I really didn't want to spend $100 one another on a Windows 7 disc, but I feel like this may be my only option... but even in this case, I'm not so sure this will work or the other.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,


    UPDATE *.
    Did some more research, I discovered my new drive HARD is an advanced HDD format... not sure if it has nothing to do with my problems (by Vista should not need to perform the work before the OS being installed), but thought I would mention it.

    Thanks again for any help.


    Seems that I found the solution to my problem.

    Problem has been fixed by going into the BIOS and change the Mode of Port SATA to IDE/native/AHCI native. After that, the installation worked without any problems. Seems that Windows Setup did not like the port mode is set to RAID.

    Just thought I would post back everybody incase has had the same problem.

    You can order a set of replacement recovery disks using the link below.

    If you have a problem with this link, order them directly from HP.

    If you live in the United States, contact HP here.

Now when I start the computer it will just a black screen with a blinking cursor to the place when windows normally should start. I can not access the system with the f11 key recovery.

  • KB951847 fails to install and I can't install the other updates since there is no.

    I tried every proposed difficulty and can not install the security updates and I can't install the other updates since there is no.  I tried the fixit, the convenience store.  I get no error number - the name of the updated and say update has failed.  I tried the fixit suggested in default and aggressive modes.  I tried stopping the service to update and it starts again.  There is no place for uncheck do not install this update.  The center of update gives me only one choice of what to put up-to-date and KB951847.  I tried to disable the start-up all elements of microsoft services and restart the computer and that did not work.  I'm out of ideas.

    Thank you.

    KB951847 is an optional, not security updates (Yes, even if it is an Important update). Feel free to hide it & move on with your life.

  • My password has expired on Windows 7 and I can't access the machine

    I have a Samsung Windows 7 Home Edition laptop. Last night, the password has expired (apparently without warning) and now I can't access the machine. I tried Safe Mode, but it returns the sign on screen. Tried to fix and had the same end result - a return to the login screen. There is only one account on the machine.

    When your password has expired then, you will be immediately prompted to enter a new password. Unless you enter a new password, Windows won't let you continue.

    No, I had not given the possibility to enter a new password. It's a stupid system to have passwords expire on home computers.

    What you say does not correspond with my own observations.

    Restart in Mode safe mode, and then log in as administrator. The password is usually empty. Now, you can reset the password for your existing account.

    When you're done, plan in advance and create, test and document a second admin account.

    To avoid that your passwords expiring, follow these steps:
    1 log in under an administrator account.
    2. click on start.
    3. type the three letters cmd in the search box.
    4. press on Ctrl + Shift + Enter
    5. click on "run as Administrator".
    6. type the following command and press ENTER:

  • new computer with win 7 pro when it is connected to a Flash drive or external hard drive poster, you have currently not authorized to access this folder or location is not available

    There are now 4 computers in front of me.

    Two are laptops 17 inch hp (consumer)

    Two are workstations mobile hp 17 inch (company)

    On the consumer books, I can view the files on my external hard drive 1 to and 1 GB player.

    On the company workstation (mobile), I'm not able to view the files on the hard drive or flash drive.

    I need your help so that I can save files from the internal hard drive of the mobile platform of book z hard disk external.  And I need to be able to reconnect the external drives and readers to the Zbook mobile workstation to transfer files to transfer flash.

    These are the pop ups that appear for each when displaying of readers by opening my computer:

    When left click hard disk drive a pop up appears with the title bar: location is not available.

    H:\ is not accessible.

    Access is denied.

    Make a right click on the hard drive allows FreeAgent GoFlex drive opening (h :)) properties)

    The tabs are ReadyBoost, previous Versions, Quota, customize, general, tools, hardware, sharing, security

    By clicking on security of advances and then permissions then continue and then change my name owner or administrator... both methods result in the same access denied result once again.

    I came across this is this something I need to study and learn before I am able to connect and use an external drive or flash?  Or is there another problem?  If the answer is in this link, do I have to put emphasis on and why wasn't windows 7 configured so that it is easy to use external drives as in win xp and win 8?  Are all usb ports do not or all drivers of failing or is it a software problem all?

    I was not able by trial and error to display all files on any hard drive or external flash on the two books of z of mobile workstation.

    Then I went to the flash drive.

    Left click on the flash drive produces a pop-up with title bar G:\

    You don't have permission to access this folder.

    Click on continue to get permanent access to this folder.

    After clicking on continue it opens another pop-up with title bar G:\

    You have been denied permission to access this folder.

    To access this folder, you will need to use the Security tab.

    When clicking on the Security tab he opens a new pop with the title bar: removable disk (g) properties

    The tabs are general, tools, hardware, sharing, ReadyBoost, customize

    Two new computers hp zbook stations mobile work with win 7 pro

    Or computers with their multiple ports usb allows to access my external hard drive or flash drive.

    The external hard disk and flash dirve each work very well with the consumer portable computers hp with winning 8 and 8.1 of win and have worked with computers with win xp.

    How can I get the Replicator hp z book with win 7 pro for usb drives work with external hard drives or external flash drives?

    I have so far done the following:

    (1) run administrative guest with sfc/scannow and it found no violations of integrity

    (2) ran microsoft fixit will be all available Parameters which automatically checked and corrected each book workstation z mobile

    (3) contacted HP support

    (4) checked for malware using microsoft security essentials, malwarebytes and spybot on each mobile workstation

    (5) updated drivers using HP support assistant on each computer

    (6) windows update the device HP support assistant on each computer

    How do two new computers with win 7 pro can be connected to external drives that allow to view the files as they do with win xp and win 8 automatically?

    How can I access my files on the external hard disk and flash the mobile workstation book z?

    The specifications for the mobile workstation of zbook are:

    Operating system: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Service Pack 1

    Microprocessor: Intel core i7-4800MQ CPU @ 2.7 GHz

    Moemory system: 16 GB of memory on 2 1600 MHz dimm

    Graphics device 1: Nvidia Quadro K3100M

    Graphics device 2: Intel HD 4600 graphics card

    Hard drive 1: SCSI Disk Device

    C: 683.42 (613,62 free go-go)

    D: 12.21 GB (1,3 GB free)

    E: 1.99 GB (1.97 GB free)

    The hard drive is a seagate 1 TB drive that works very well

    The flash drive is a 1 GB drive which works very well

    This problem has been resolved.

    Right-click all methods have not access external external hard drives and flash drives.

    Sharing, permissions, ownership, administrative changes, all method all failed.

    This problem has been resolved by higher HP product support.  Other levels of support were not able to diagnose the problem or fix.

    The problem has been resolved by:

    (1) determine that he was not a NTFS problem

    (2) using the msconfig to isolate a single service

    When the unique service has been disabled the files on any external drives have been available.

    The service of the problem was the HP Client Security.

    This HP Client Security in its default value is set to deny access.

    Then right-click on the drive and change the permissions, ownership, to administrators, using everyone etc. will fail because they are all trumped by the HP Client Security that is set by default to deny access.

    When that client security is changed the drives become available.  It is not information about this when using the computer and this can be learned by trial and error.

    I hope this helps all those who have z book 17 mobile workstations or HP computers that are equipped with client security.

  • After installing a new HARD drive, I get a screen "control i to access the configuration utility.


    I installed a new HARD drive on my xps 15 because the old drive crashed. Everything works fine and the system boots perfectly. Before entering the Dell splash screen, the screen "control i to access the configuration utility" appears for 5 seconds. After that, the normal boot sequence resumes. Can someone please explain to me why this is happening and what I can do about it?

    Here is a link to the screen I get started:

    The mSATA drive is used as a cache for the hard drive dynamic - these are essentially implemented in a RAID 0 array.  See the link below (it is for Alienware, but applies to your system as well).

    If you want to keep the disk cache, you need to configure the array as shown.
