  • Backup utility Windows 7 application ' are you sure you want to remove the most recent data from the backup file "even if I'm trying to remove the backup set is not the most recent.

    I'm trying to reduce the amount of space that my Windows 7 backup uses so I've come to the place in Windows 7 backup:
    Manage space > view backups...

    I am then presented a list of three backup sets:
    01/03/2012 to 01/04/2012
    12/07/2011 to 12/21/2011
    23/11/2011 to 30/11/2011

    I would like to remove the older two, leaving the most recent. However, this doesn't seem to work as expected. If I try to delete one of the two most recent ones (the first two in the list above) I get the following warning "Are you sure you want to delete this backup file.

    However, if I try to delete the last one in the list, I get a slightly different error "Are you sure you want to remove the most recent data of the file backup?"-sounds strange because it is clearly not the most recent backup according to the dates it's show.

    Of course, I can go ahead and ignore the warnings, but I fear that maybe there are some files in the last backup the value in the list that may not be right more recent set backs.

    In 2011, I thought this might be something wrong with the date formats vs US UK (I am in England so the above dates are in dd/mm/yyyy format and not in jj/mm/aaaa) - but now it's 2012 and I backup from 2012 and 2011 games and he always seems to think that the oldest backup of 2011 is the most recent.

    Any ideas? Can I delete the oldest backup sets (that is, the two that are from 2011) safely?

    Any help much appreciated - thank you.


    Update: I checked on other PCs in the office and the situation is the same - is not only something strange on a PC.

  • You want to remove the icon "launch" high in the center of my office.

    I have this horrible launch icon that looks like a symbol of game on my desktop. When you place the cursor over them, the icons appear more 'security', 'mail' etc. It's a pain and I can't remove it. any ideas?

    OK, I found the solution. It was actually a program already installed on the computer with the purchase by "The Tech Guys". I thought it was part of windows vista. Easy to remove in 'remove programs '... Well I never!

  • I want to remove the EXIF files

    I put JPEG images to a flash drive to show on my Smart TV and you want to remove the EXIF data, which of course are not readable, but I have to scan through them.  How should I be save these photos in Photoshop CC?

    Normally jpg is not the xmp (exif) files, unless they have been open in Camera raw for editing. If this is the case, you must resave JPGs - never a good idea because of re-compression. I would like to processor use Bridge and image to save the files that you want to display on your smart TV on the flash drive. That would eliminate the sidecar xmp files.

  • Error "one of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it." when you connect Logitech M225

    Original title:

    My wireless mouse works fine for the last 2 months, now, all of a sudden it doesn't work at all.

    I get a windows notification that says-

    "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it."

    I have Vista 32 bit OS on my laptop.

    My office has Windows 7 32 bit and I am able to use the mouse on this computer, then the M225 is not defective.

    I tried to look for a download of update on the site of Logitech & only found:

    6.32.20 set - point it did nothing to help.

    I also tried to move the receiver to the other 2 ports USB w / still the same results.

    Are there other downloads or solutions that will help w / this problem?

    You can also try searching for devices strangers (with yellow symbols) in the Manager under the mouse devices and other pointing devices and other devices (if any). Right click and uninstall unknown devices. Then restart.

    Also try the steps below to reset the power of USB:
    (a) the laptop off, unplugged from the wall outlet.
    (b) remove the battery for a few minutes, then reinstall it.
    (c) then restart the laptop.

  • ESXi USB, what happens if you then remove the USB boot?


    Someone in our team IT wants to use ESXi 5 bootable, i.e. start an ESXi host for a 2 GB USB flash drive in order to save the cost of buying the hard drives local to a RAID set.

    I know there are a few downsides to this, but one thing I wanted to know more precisely, it is what happens to the ESXi if you remove the USB or the USB drive goes down, while the host is running. The army continues to operate, as it will be charged the ESXi image in memory? Or it will fail if it cannot see the USB as it initialized from?

    Thank you!

    ESXi will work on - running some virtual machines are not affected.

    Usually, there should be no problem to plug new - but I have seen cases where the system does not start after a rough unplug - so avoid it.

  • two hard drives, one with vista and the other with XP and you want to remove second disk XP

    I have a hard drive that came with my computer and vista on it, I added a second drive to my bench that has XP on it. I want to remove the second XP disc and simply use it as a storage drive, and I'm afraid that if I try and uninstall XP disc, it allows to uninstall vista of the first hard drive instead. or should I even try and uninstall it all and just delete all files? Since there is nothing in the registry for all the things on the second disc. If I uninstall XP second drive will be there remove all of that second drive? because there are a few things about this, I still want to keep. I should also mention that it is divided into three separate letters, if I do not uninstall XP I lose all three of these letters of partitioned drive? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You can just uninstall XP. Anyway, as you say, you can remove the folder Program Files and Windows in that partition but personally I would just copy the files I need to another partition (on the hard drive where vista is installed) and the format of the old HDD.

  • How to remove the warning "do you want to save the changes to investigation.pdf before closing.

    Question: To remove the warning "do you want to save the changes to investigation.pdf before closing.

    I created a file of pdf XFA (using the LC Designer 8.2) to view this issue

    I can't attach PDF file. Without attaching the pdf file, it would be difficult to explain.

    Click event js:

    function activateUser() {}
    var PDFVersion = +; ("registered button click event");
    XFA. Form.Form1.sendForm.welcomeMsg.Presence = "invisible";
    XFA. Form.Form1.sendForm.successMsg.Presence = "visible";
    Event.Target.Dirty = false;

    docReady event js:

    function displayInfo() {}
    var res;//Added this line to display the successMsg ("docReady event recorded");
    XFA. Form.Form1.sendForm.welcomeMsg.Presence = "visible";
    XFA. Form.Form1.sendForm.successMsg.Presence = "invisible";

    docClose js event: ("docClose recorded event");
    Event.Target.Dirty = false;

    Steps to get the caveat:
    (1) open the attached pdf using Acrobat Professional.
    (Bouton 2) click on registration to confirm.
    (3) now close the document and the Acrobat gives a warning "do you want to save the changes to investigation.pdf before closing.

    The XFA pdf summary:
    It has two text fields. DocReady event field has done this & field B is rendered invisible.
    The button click event of the field made invisisble & field B are made visible.
    Closing the pdf should not raise this warning message.

    My Efforts:
    (1) found a property in js adobe docs.
    Event.Target.Dirty = false;
    It does not solve the problem.
    (2) I tried to put this logic in almost all the events listed in the designer, but I'm not able to solve the problem.

    Please help me solve this problem.


    Change the visual appearance is dirty the screen, before all data are actually entered in the form. I've seen this before.

    I think that the docClose event is too late to have the sale/requiresFullSave script. preSave does not either, as this is triggered after the warning dialog is displayed.

    For a test, I would put the sale/requiresFullSave script in the layout event: loan. Not the most efficient, but he should do after changing the visibility of the messages.

  • remove this line if you want to edit the code by hand? uh who's online?

    Several of my pages are locked and I don't know why. As I work in the code, I remembered that I modified a text in a SendEmail by directly editing the page rather than to use the server behavior. Do not understand why that would matter, but whatever...

    Now I wonder if that is causing the problem, I ran across this commented line in the code:

    remove this line if you want to edit the code by hand

    But they talk about the line just after //remove this line or they mean the actual comment line

    remove this line if you want to edit the code by hand?

    Thanks for your help

    Given that you post the code no, others can only guess, but I would have thought that it is pretty obvious that removing a comment will make no difference for the execution of a script. This means almost certainly remove the Next line.

  • Satellite A30 does not start with the USB device connected at boot time


    I have a Satellite A30 and sometimes it does not start.
    After turning on, not even the BIOS starts.
    even if sometimes the BIOS starts, but the OS does not load.

    I figured out that its related to USB devices connected at boot time.
    If no USB devices are connected, it starts without a problem.
    Even if the start-up is suspended, as soon as you unplug start it BIOS USB devices.
    Its ok to connect USB devices later, once the system has started.
    I disabled "removable devices boot" and "network startup."
    just in case, but it makes no difference.

    BIOS is version the most recent (1.70) and it comes up with all kinds of USB devices.
    printer, mouse and (self-powered) external USB hard disk.

    Is this a known issue?
    There is no known workaround solution?


    I put t know why this happens, but it has to do with the BIOS.
    The same thing happened on my old laptop. I couldn't start my unit while the USB printer has been turned on and connected.
    The only solution is to disconnect the external USB device during the boot process.

    RSY you should check if the order of boot in the BIOS has been on the HARD drive first.

  • One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it. The location is the root (2 ports) USB hub: 1-unknown device and Port 2-not used

    Original title: USB device not recognized

    Over the last 2 weeks, I get a message on a USB device.  The message said that one of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it.  The location is the root (2 ports) USB hub: 1-unknown device and 2-unused Port.  I have no idea what it means.  I hesitated to first click the icon (it does not last very long) thinking it could be a scam.  Can someone help me?  Thank you.


    (1) is the specific question of specific USB devices?
    (2) did you of recent changes to the computer before the show?
    (3) have you tried plugging the USB stick on another computer?

    (4) what is the brand and model of the computer?

    I suggest to refer to the following methods and check if it helps to solve the problem.

    Method 1: Hardware devices do not work or are not detected in Windows

    Run Microsoft Fixit mentioned in the article.

    Method 2: USB Port may stop working after you remove or insert a USB device

    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Hello Ann,.

    If it is a laptop computer, shut down Windows and remove the battery and the power supply of the PC.

    Wait a few minutes, and then reconnect the battery and start Windows.

    Plugin your device to see if it works, without the hub.
