I noticed my C: almost filled up so I used my handy WinDirstat to figure out what happened. It looks like 10 days ago a huge file was created in my c:\windows directory. The filename looks like some HEX registry key of some sort. The curly braces are actually in the filename. I did some quick googling and didn't see anything like this. Any ideas what this could be? I tried moving it to my D: but the file is in use by "System". I'm currently at 3GB free out of 150, so I really need to clear this file out if it is not needed. I thought maybe it might be some corrupted swap file, but I have mine set to my D:

Go into safe mode, and rename it. Reboot normally. If your windows loads fine, then just delete the file.

I have just received a running out of system disk memory notice on my Windows XP desktop computer. I was a bit surprised because I don't store much on the system disk, and as part of an exercise discussed on another thread here I had recently cleaned it up. I ran a scan with AVG free which came up with nothing and also Spybot S&D which cleaned out as many temp files as it could. After this I noticed one very large "hidden" folder remaining in the temp folder. It was called ~eu0000. In it was a single file called .eunf.
 
I have a dual boot so I could probably quite easily delete the folder and file, but before doing so I am curious as to whether it might have been caused by malware.
 

The composite image above shows the location of files on my very full system drive, as well as the results of the AVG scan.
 

 
This image shows the Windows temp folder (after the S&D cleanup) containing the offending large folder.
 
I should appreciate any thoughts anyone has on this.

Hi all, thanks in advance for reading! I've been experiencing these issues since I began my foray into Windows 7 over a week ago. Before I describe the issues, here's my system's stats:

Asus P5N-D
2x2gb Corsair xms2 DDR2 800 @ stock
C2D E8400 @ stock
nvidia geforce 8800 gts
1 x WD Raptor 37gb sata
1 x WD Caviar 250gb sata
2 x Samsung Spinpoint F1 750gb sata

During large file operations (moving, copying/pasting etc) between HDD's of items (single files or groups of files and folders, and from the Caviar to either Samsung) exceeding several gb's worth, the system would hard lock - no mouse/keyboard, all visual progress halted, no visual HDD activity. If left alone, the system would very intermittently flash a black display and return to the frozen desktop display, eventually winking out to a total lack of display output altogether.

Upon soft reboot, the destination HDD has been dropped from BIOS, boot menu, etc. Boot hangs at midpoint during the splash.

Hard power-cycling yields the HDD reappearing and Windows starts without issues.

What I've done so far:
-Disconnected destination HDD and tried the other spinpoint, same result.
-Diag'd all HDD's with manufacturers' tools, all pass.
-Flashed BIOS to most recent update, no change.
-Swapped out the WD Raptor for a freshly unboxed WD 640gb Caviar Black. Clean installed W7 x64 after format etc and did NOTHING (this means installed no drivers, no programs, nada) but attempt the file operations after first startup post-install. S... Read more

Hi all,

I have a really big issue with one of my computer when copying large file (about more than 1GB).

When I copy a large file, 10GB for instance, after the time calcution for copy, the copy begins but the progress bar never goes after 1%. Even if I let the copy working all the night, the status stays the same. I have this issue if I copy a file from a folder to another one or if I copy it from my computer to an external hard drive (both NTFS).

I have another computer with Windows 7 Enterprise which does not have this kind of problem.

Could you help me on this issue?

Thank you very much

Does anyone know where these files are located and the format they are in? I am assuming that I need to convert them to something else so that I can split and burn them, but cannot figure out where the files are.

Check whether the external drive is formatted NTFS or FAT32. If the drive is FAT32, then the maximum allowed size for files is 4GB. You'll either need to convert the drive to NTFS, or split the AVI file into smaller chunks that fit within the FAT32 4GB boundary.

Hi,

I have moved to Windows 7 Ultimate x64 for almost half a year, recently my hard drive was getting full and I decided to move some of the data to usb external hard drives. Both the externals I have are IDE hard drives and both are NTFS. I always use Quicksfv to make a CRC check file before I transfer the file and then run the CRC check after its been copied over to the external drive. I have used these externals in the past with Windows XP and had no problems.

However, on Windows 7 when transferring large files (usually over 1GB in size), I get corruption in the files. The corruption occurs randomly, if I recopy the files again it might be corruption free. This only occurs when copying files from internal to external, if I copy files from the external to my internal there's no corruption at all.
I have tried changing the usb cables, power cable of the externals, using different usb ports but none of it helped. I scanned both externals with chkdsk and I used memtest+ for over 24hours and all the tests passed fine.

Regards,
Pleco

I have a HP HPE-510t. It is running windows 10, clean install. I have a 240GB SSD, a 1TB SATA drive, and a 3TB SATA drive. All are NTFS formatted. If I transfer a 1GB file to the 3TB drive it makes it to 50% lightning quick and then slows down so slow it looks like it has stopped. Other two drives work fine. Files 560MB and smaller transfer fine. I don't know where the exact breaking point is between 560 and 1GB. Transfers to that drive do the same thing whether it's from those drives, a USB drive, or the network. Can this motherboard just not handle a larger than 2TB drive? I tried to find a BIOS update, but there's not one. Can't find an answer, going crazy, please help!

Well, where to put this strange problem? XP, Office or Network Forum. All three seem to be involved somehow.

What gives?

I have a few large Excel files on
a) a share on a Win XP SP2 desktop
b) a share on a WIn Vista desktop
c) a share on a Ubuntu 6.06 desktop

When i mean large, i mean ~75Mb

When i work on my laptop (Win Xp SP2, 1Gb Ram, 1,86 GHz), i can access all shares just fine. But when i right click such a large Excel file on the XP or Vista computer and click 'Properties', my laptop becomes unresponsive for about a minute. Then, at last, the properties are shown. In the Taskmanager, on the LAN tab, it shows that my LAN connection is swamped at 70% for a whole minute. Sniffing the network traffic learns that the entire contents of the file is being transferred through the network to my laptop!
Just to see the properties...

However, when i right click the same file on a Ubuntu share, the properties come up instantly.

When i right click other large files on the XP/Vista shares (like *.iso of *.avi files), bingo, properties pop up instantly.

When i right click the large Excel files on the Xp/Vista share from a Win 2003 server (without office installed), voila, properties show up instantly.


So why is the whole Excel file transferred by just right clicking it for properties?
I'm convinced this behaviour adds to slow file share performance in general. For example, if i want to copy such a large excel file form the XP or Vista share, it takes 10... Read more

I have a program I wrote in Visual Basic that copies a file from one directory into another directory at a prescribed interval. The Visual Basic programs uses the ShellFileCopy API function
ShellFileCopy Visual Basic 6 API Function
FreeVBCode code snippet: Copy Files Using the Shell API
99% of the time, the program works fine.
However occasionally, I get a Windows error that pop's up that says
"File is too large for the destination file system"
This is extremely baffling as the size of the file that is being copied is under 1MB.

Does anyone have any idea to what would be triggering this error in Windows 7?
Thanks

A:seeking fix for “File is too large for destination file system” erro

Why are you using ShellFileCopy()? I'm asking because I used it in some programs but it was a long time ago. For your purpose can't you just use FileCopy()?

If I remember, I used Shell copy because it provided a progress dialog. If the files are that small that won't come into play. Or is the small file just because you are testing?

Edit:

Ok, I think I may see the problem. The wrapper function uses Strings as source and destination. If you read the MSDN entry for SHFILEOPSTRUCT the source and destination strings must have a double null terminator. If not, the function will just keep reading memory getting the source or destination name until it finds a double zero.

You need to make a string compatible with LPCTSTR type that has a double zero a the end.

It won't send, but keeps trying to send, it won't delete in any conventional and non conventional method and although there is an update to handle this issue, it isn't applicable to our Vista machine, as it's about eighteen months old, therefore a dinosaur in the world of technology.

So I found a post on this forum with a similar problem. I'm trying to move a file that is larger than 4GB in size from my main hard drive to an external, and getting the error message in the title. The consensus on the other post was that the hard drive must have been a FAT format, and that too fix the problem either split up the file or reformat the hard drive as NTFS. Well, by all accounts, my computer is telling me that my external hard drive is ALREADY formatted as NTFS, but I'm still getting this error. I would prefer not to split up the file, but other than that, what are my options? I would appreciate any advice.
 

A:File Too Large for Destination File System

If you do not need to access the data in the large file when it is on the external drive, can you compress the file using one of the many free Zip utilities? Also, some free backup programs will compress when saving files.

Not a techie.  Can't get straight answer ANYWHERE.  New laptops tend to NOT have indicators on the keys.  Hoping Windows 10 has indicators that can be turned on and PROBABLY would show up in the tray at the bottom right of the screen. 
I have heard of sites where such things can be downloaded but again NOT a techie, so I hesitate to go outside of Windows/Microsoft for downloads.  I do not know what download sites are safe or spoofs.

He like to be able to have access to them because he needs to reference when he gets new business. Thanks in advance for your help
 

A:Large PST file

Archive them to another PST. You can create another data file and stoe it on a server share and he can drag and drop them to th newly created PST which will show up as a second mailbox underneath his main one in Outlook. This of course will also fill up over time and becomes a vicious cycle. Being an archtectural firm I would think you would have your own email system internally.

I am looking for a way to share large files and folders over the internet. I do not need to share publicly; no anonymous access is required. I do not require the world's best security, however, I'd rather not leave myself wide open either. The ability to resume file downloads is a must. Users must be able to download files and folders from a shared resource. They must also be able to upload to a user specific space on the server, as well as to a separate shared space. If that is unclear, that means two separate resources with two separate sets of privileges, plus user specific spaces. I will most likely have only three users, but they will connect from a variety of different places and machines. I am hoping for the following configuration:

1. Single fileserver
2. Fileserver exists on an internet connection shared with other computers on the same LAN
3. Other computers on LANs at different sites sharing other internet connections

All computers use some variant of windows, none older than Windows XP 32bit. Ideally, I would like to have the server run a non-windows operating system. While this is not a requirement, I enjoy experimenting and this seems like a good time to learn something new. If possible, please limit recommendations to free software, as this is strictly for personal use.

Thank you very much for your time.

I am not an expert, and other disclarimers. The following was posted on
the .windowsxp.video group. This registry edit worked for me on copying
avi files. I have not tested it with other files, but I have noticed
that moving large files from Win98 to XP is a factor of perhaps 15
faster than from XP to Win98 prior to this edit. Win98 128M memory, XP
512M.

I have a 4 gig AVI file (from a DVD camera) that I cannot delete. I keep getting a message that the file is in use by another program, but I don’t have any programs open (no applications are listed in Task Manager). I had used the file with Dazzle Movie Star 5, and had also opened it with the ms movie viewer, and have not had this kind of problem with either of these programs before. Other similar files have been deleted with no problem.

I am using XP-home on a Sony with a Pentium 4 1.8 gig processor, and an 80 gig hard drive. The computer also has a built in Pioneer DVD-RW drive.

I’d very much appreciate your suggestions on how the recover these 4 gigs of disk space.

When I try to sync music from windows media player to my phone,I get an error message on some songs that says File header too large. Does anyone know what I can do to correct this so the songs will play. I download mp3s from napster & my phone is a Blackjack2.

A:file header too large

Sometimes...when I edit a music file or convert the format...a given player/program may refer it as "headerless PCM data" and I interpret this as a way of saying "I cannot read this file."

What I do then is use another program to change the tag and filename...and it can be read.

In your case, you might take a look at those two things...and see if you can shorten the filename via a simple change. Some music that is downloaded via the Internet comes with rather long names and that may be problem.

Louis

This happened again today...and I was incorrect about the filename/tags. The problem is the file format and it seems to be a quirky one. Even though some files are encoded as .mp3 and will play in certain/all players...when I use Cool Edit 2K, it can't read some of them. So I simply use Real Player to "convert" the files to my custom mp3 format (192) and CE2K can now read/play/edit said files.

When you click on the print button, before you print, click on "Properties" and on that window, check the paper size, make sure it is "letter" size (or whatever is appropriate for what you are printing).

Also, before you print something, go to "File > page setup > and make sure there is a checkmark in the "shrink to fit page width" box. In that same box, it's also helpful to UNcheck the "print background and images" box for things like purchase reciepts, ect.

Greetings.

I am having trouble with my computer rebooting while trying to copy large files (700 MB) from a CD to the hard drive.

I had this problem about 6 months ago when I was copying files from my Tivo to my PC. I am trying to copy to the same hard drive now that was giving me trouble then.

Here's a bit more detail.

6 months ago:
I copied 10 (?) hour-long shows from my Tivo to my computer. Each file was around 1 GB. While trying to copy #11 (?), the computer would reboot. It did this no matter how many times I tried. I finally gave up.

Now:
I've deleted those Tivo files to free space on my hard drive. I'm trying to copy 21 700 MB files to the hard drive. I've been able to copy 17. While trying to copy #18, the computer reboots. It has done this 3 times in a row.

There is a different amount of free space now while experiencing the problem than there was when I had the problem 6 months ago.

The hard drive is a secondary hard drive used for data storage.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I'm trying to move a 11GB file from my internal harddrive to an external one via firewire. I have both a 250GB LaCie ext HDD and a 500GB Maxtor ext HDD. The Maxtor is completely free and empty. Anyways, when I try copying the 11GB file to either HDD, a message pops up saying "Cannot copy [filename]. There is not enough free disk space." I was able, however, to copy a folder containing a total of 35GB to both HDDs (the folder contained lots of small files all under 20MB). Transferring a single 2GB file works for both as well. So it seems as though larger file sizes don't want to transfer, but why?

I have two internal HDDs and am able to transfer large files back and forth between them just fine.

A:Can't move large file to external HDD

the maximum file size supported in FAT32 is 4 GB.

you may convert the file system of your external drive to NTFS, which renders the drive useles to certain operating systems that do not have native NTFS support.

How to convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt:

1. Open Command Prompt. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

2. In the command prompt window, type: convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

For example, typing convert D: /fs:ntfs would convert drive D: to the ntfs format. You can convert FAT or FAT32 volumes to NTFS with this command.

It is really annoying and it is been happening everytime i do copy paste.

Someone told me it is Mcaffee antivirus problem, i uninstalled and put norton antivirus and still same problem.

Anyone can help me in this issue??

Thanks

I recently purchased Visual Studio 6.0 and want to download a 132MB file with samples of the several venues comprising the Studio. Yesterday, I spent 15 hours at my machine trying to download this large file (56k Modem) and at 131+MB, my connection to my ISP broke and I lost it! I have tried several times before and after this crushing loss and have had similar problems.

Is there any software or other means to "restart" when a downloading process has been broken off and continue the download? That seems possible, say, when downloading Microsoft service packs and upgrades . . . but can I do it too?

Thank you!
 

A:Solved: Large File Downloading

Hi,

There are numerous download managers that will resume a broken downloads

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=e...sume+broken+download&btnG=Google+Search&meta=

Zdnet.com and download.com are probably your best sites.

Do you know someone with a Broadband connection who could download the file for you. Or use an Internet Cafe

In both cases burn the files to CDR

I downloaded a 4GB .mkv file of a concert I wanted to watch. But since this was on my netbook, I tried to transfer the file to a 16GB Kingston USB Drive which is empty as I have bought it new. However I get an error saying that the "file is too large for the destination file system" and thus, cannot move my file to the USB. What is going wrong here?Here's a picture of the popup that occurs.

A:Too large for Destination File System?

How is Kingston drive formatted? I`m guessing fat or fat 32.

I helped a former student restore his Gateway Laptop with Vista Home Premium. It was in such bad shape that I had to use the restore partition in order to get the computer running properly. When I began the restore partition I was asked if I wanted to wipe out the drive (reformat) or to do a backup of all data and then have it placed on the hard drive as a complete backup. I thought that would be the best choice and I do have the laptop running again like it should. I've done over 160 Windows Updates including both Service Pack 1 and 2.

The computer is working quite well except for one problem. I dont want to keep the backup file on the primary drive now that everything is restored. The backup is 18.8 gigs and even includes Windows!

I've tried to delete the partition but I am getting a message that I don't have the proper permissions to delete. I did go inside the folder and delete what I could but due to the remaining size I would like to get rid of the rest of it.

I even went into Safe Mode and tried to delete but I still got a message saying I don't have proper permission.

Thanks for any and all suggestions on how I can get rid of this file. I don't think I need it as it was created as a backup for me to get information to put back on the computer after I did the recovery!!

A:Delete a Large Backup File

Gateway instructions...should cover how to do such, the manner in which their restore function works, etc. Such should be available at the GW website.

I have a very large tab-delimited text file that I want to bring into a program that will separate it into columns. Excel would usually be used for this but it can't handle files that span multiple sheets.
Any ideas?

I have a large video file that is over 3GB. To delete it from my documents I had to have my files as a list not icons, but now it's in my recycle bin and the computer can not delete it even when it is in list form not icons. The OS is Vista. How can I get rid of this massive file?

Thanks.

A:How can I remove a large video file?

You can remove any file in the Recycle Bin...by right-clicking on desktop Recycle Bin icon and clicking Empty Recycle Bin.

The size of the file has nothing to do with ability to delete.

My wife's outlook pst file is 1.4 GB and is very fragmented. The majority of the emails that are in there she genuinely wants to keep however she is experiencing some performance issues with the file due to its fragmentation.

I personally would like to delete it and start over, however she does not like that idea. She would like to be able to access those emails if she chooses but I am not sure how to proceed from here.

Would like some advice on what to do and how to do it.

Using my portable iRiver jukebox I recorded a two-hour appointment as an mp3 file. What I would like to do is burn only a 17-minute segment of the file to a CD-R. (I can't burn the whole file anyway since discs can hold only 80 minutes.) Aren't there programs available that would allow me to isolate and save a segment and then burn it to a disc? I would appreciate hearing from anyone who is familiar with this type of program.

There are other programs on the internet that do this as well. We have covered this topic in the past on the forums. Do a search on the forums for other programs that can do this as well.

I get this whenever I try to move the file to either one of my external Hard Drive.

There's plenty of room on either, so what's the problem?

(And I pretty much own every DVD or VHS of Star Wars I could lay my hands on, FYI ; )
 

A:Too large for the destination file system.

They're FAT volumes. You need to split the file into smaller parts. I think the max file size for FAT drives is 4.00 GB. You might be able to reformat your external hard drive using NTFS. Try right clicking on it in Computer, then click Format... and choose NTFS in the dropdown menu under File System. Note that this will erase all data on the drive.

To split the file, I recommend using HJSplit from here. It is a very lightweight program and no installation is required.

Can I use a program like winzip to compress the files on old computer and then transfer and unzip with xp? Any other suggestions?

Hi-

I converted an avi movie file which was 6.8 GBs and want to burn to a DVD. I keep getting a popup that the file is too large to store as ISO and that I should use a different compiliation (UDF) whatever that is....however when I click on that UDF on their dropdown menu, nothing happens. I just wanted to be able to turn my avi. file into a video file which I did so I can play on DVD player. Thank you.

BTW, I used WinAvi to convert the file which worked fine.

Running XP with SP3.

I want to download a free trial of AutoCad 2010.

"http://download.cnet.com/AutoCAD/3000-6677_4-10573933.html"

This file I believe is of some 2.5GB and my download speed is approx. 2mb.

So when trying to download this file, it indicates that will take approx. 25hrs to complete.

Is there anyway of capturing what's downloaded in a temp file and then pick up again to continue the download in number of sessions till completion of the full download.

At present if I shut the page or turn PC off, it starts the download again from scratch when restarting.

thanks.

Help needed from the Mac Gods...

Created a 25MB quicktime movie file on a G4 Mac (4.5 minute capture from a Mini-DV player). File takes a while to spawn on my PC with XP using a basic QT player, but it eventually plays full screen. Sent file to a web site administrator who has a G4 and the file will not play without errors. I thought of all places, a Mac G4 would play a QT file no problem.

Is the size of the QT movie file the problem?

is there a way on the G4 to reduce the QT file quality and subsequently the file size without recapturing the file?

Is the QT player backward compatible for newer versions of QT played on older QT versions (non-pro version);

Thanks in advance,

Peter
 

A:Large QT Movie File Does Not Play on G4

The size isn't the problem, more likely the codec used in compression is. Which did you use?

The players are backwars compatible if you compress the video & audio using codecs that are available for older players.
