Solved: Can not account for large number of files

Q: Solved: Can not account for large number of files

My computer is a few years old and over time - I appear to have accumulated over 700,000 files (per Norton AV during full system scan). In review of Windows Explorer (including hidden and system files) - I can only find about 150,000 files total. What and where are all those unaccounted for files - and how can I get rid of them? (makes scans etc. a real time consumer). I have CyberScrub Privacy software which cleans the index.dat files (as least as far as I have been able to tell). But the number of files continues to grow. Thanks for any help!! I have certainly come to respect the knowledge base here - you people rock pretty hard - DB44

I will shortly need to move a large number (20,000) very large (20-30Mb) image files and associated tiny xmp sidecar files from one hard drive to another.

MS file explorer will make a meal of this so any suggestions for alternatives please? I have several folders each containing many thousands of files as above so moving a folder en-bloc is an option rather than file by file?

A:moving large number of large files to new drive

Simply drag and drop the folder(s).

Might want to do a copy first, verify that everything did indeed get copied, and then delete the originals.

I have a one year old computer running WIndows XP. Each week while running Norton Scan, my files seem to increase by a couple of thousand a month. My computer is not running slow and everything seems normal but I now have 185,000 files on it. I daily delete cookies and temporary internet files using the tools function on the menu. I am not downloading anything other than the updates from Norton and WIndows. This has been happening for about six months. Why are so many files being added? Thank you for any help you can offer.

Here is the situation.
We work a lot with IP Cameras (or sometimes called network cameras). Most of these IP cams have the capability to send jpg images to an ftp server when motion is detected.
The jpg image is about 40 to 50k in size and are stored in a folder named for the current date, so each day a new folder is created at midnight and all of the images for that 24 hour period are stored there.
Anyway, what is happening is that when these cameras ftp this information to an xp machine on the local 100mb network, some folders end up with A LOT of jpg images in them. In one day, one camera can store over 100,000 images in a folder. Opening these folders takes a long time...sometimes up to 5 minutes just to see the contents.
I have tried both using and not using File Indexing, but it seems to be the same speed either way.
From what I understand, the main resource File Indexing uses is memory. The systems these images are being saved to are WinXP Pro machines running at 1GHZ minimum to 4GHZ maximum and memory ranges from 512MB to 2GB.
I watch the task manager while loading these directorys and CPU is never over 4% so I assume the CPU has little to do with whatever is causing the system to take so long reading the files.

Anyone have any ideas as to how I can speed up the process of viewing these folders with so many images in them?

1) I have windows vista Home Premium. When I search for files, a very large number of MSxxxxxxx.log files get created. It is a nuisance to delete these files. Is their any way that their creation can be stopped?

2) I usually delete all *.log and *.tmp files (after I have run CCleaner) before shutting the computer.

a)When I put *.log in the search space, at first *.tmp files show up or vice versa. After some time the desired files show in the list. Is there a way to prevent this?

b) Some times files show up in the search list, but when I click on these to delete them, a message 'the file no longer exists in this locatin' shows up. why does the system show names of files that 'no longer exist' in the search location?

c) Some times a message appears 'you do not have permission for this action' when I try to delete a file. I could delete these files on previous occasions. Some times I have to run 'take ownership' 2-3 times before I can delete the file.

d) Some times when I type *.log in the search space. *.tmp list appears or vice versa. After a while the correct list appears. How can this be prevented?

I shall appreciate help with these problems.

I'm trying to delete 1500+ hidden files (located in different directories) from my flash memory. But when I highlight them all and choose "delete", I get the "Preparing to delete" dialogue which says:
Time remaining: Calculating...
Items remaining: Discovered 0 items (0 bytes)...
Speed: Calculating ...Click to expand...

And it stays like this FOREVER until I cancel the operation. It will only work when I delete about 50 files at a time, which I'm not willing to do every time.

I've tried this both on my laptop and desktop with Windows vista business/home premium service pack 1, and it still didn't work.

Any idea how I can solve this issue?

UPDATE: It appears that the issue occurs only when I'm deleting files locating in different directories through the 'search' function. It's still an issue though, and I'd like to delete all files of a specific kind instead of doing it through each and every directory.

Your help is much appreciated

Hello. I am trying to permanently erase about 67,000 files from my recycle bin and other places on my computer. I found these files as a result of a recovery program called 'Recuva'. Whilst Recuva shows a huge list of deleted files, I have no means of accessing and transferring these files to the 'File Shredder' that I also have on my computer thats running Windows 10. I'm thinking there must be an easy way of getting rid of so many files apart from the enter individual file or folder method as prescribed by the File Shredder program.Can you help me please?

A:File Shredder and large number of files

Why do you need to shred these files? I would just empty the recycle bin.
File shredder is a program to eras "personal document" from your hard drive to prevent anyone recovering them. If you keep the original or updated files on the same drive it's a waste of time.

I run a software tool that often generates 75,000 - 100,000 small files that need to be deleted after the software exits. Right now, it can take 8 - 10 minutes to permanently delete all these files from a single run, and I usually have 4 - 8 runs to deal with, so do the math...

I have tried shift-del to permanently delete but it doesn't work - Windows still copies everything to the recycle bin. (I thought shift-del was supposed to bypass the recycle bin...)

Also, while moving the files to the recycle bin, I often get an error message: "Error 0x80070050: The file exists."

Bottom line is that it takes a *really* long time just to delete these files and I need a quicker way to do it.

What's the solution?

Thanks in advance,

The aim of this post is twofold: first, I would like to help people who are as irritated with Windows7 explorer as I am. Second, I would like to spark a reaction from Windows developers and maybe understand why the -7explorer is as painful as it is.

The issue is simple:
I would like to sort, rename and visualise the large number of photos I have.
While everything was working perfectly with the previous Windows versions I had, these basic tasks have become nearly impossible with Windows7. Cancelling the automatic sorting is difficult, renaming files results in the explorer getting lost and visualising files per alphabetic order appears to be impossible. Finally, even having a good layout on the screen is mission impossible after moving or renaming a few files.
At this point I hasten to add that I am not a beginner with windows or computing in general. I have used previous Windows versions for years both at home and at work, and can do my own bits of code if needs be.

The only solution found so far:
After doing a fair amount of reading (and wasting a lot of time), I decided the only solution was to go for an alternative to Windows7 explorer. I personally chose to download? FreeCommander? but there are many other alternatives. So far it answers all my needs and I have stopped using Windows7 explorer.

My question to Windows developers:

Why on earth wreck a product that worked so well before? This is beyond me and I would sincerely like to understand. Anyway my m... Read more

A:Sorting files with Windows7 Explorer - Large number of issues

You just don't know how to use it
To cancel automatic sorting, right-click on an empty space, and in the "View" sub-folder, uncheck "Auto arrange icons".
Secondly, with the first setting, renaming files will not make the lost, because after you renamed them, they will not be automatically arranged again.
The third issue, visualizing files per alphabetic order, is simple again. Just right-click, go to "Sort", and press "Name". Now, all the files will be sorted by name, alphabetically.

I'm sharing a folder on a Windows XP computer with 15,000 sub-folders/files over a small network. This folder used to be hosted in Windows Server 2003 machine. But after I made the switch to XP, accessing the shared folder over the network takes over 1 minute for the files to list.

Does anyone know what might be causing this slow performance? And is it related to the XP operating system?

Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there

If you have Loads (and I mean Loads) of small files - e-books, excel data. word docs, emails etc etc then File explorer runs REALLY slow on even fast devices

I gave up moving this lot after about 4 hours. (W10 machine).

Switched to Linux system -- did it in 45 mins similar hardware to W10 machine - both Real machines --not VM's and direct transfer (not via LAN).

What gives !!!!!

I know it's only a 1 time move but similar hardware with identical HDD should not have a HUGE difference in the move --note in fact Linux actually has hard a harder job since the file system was NTFS which isn't a native Linux file system either. Source system external HDD on USB 3 device,, target systm larger HDD device on USB3 device -- no hubs - USB 3 transfer working OK on both W10 and Linux so reasonable comparison.

IMO the NTFS file system has serious problems if you start messing around with this type of data. !!!! Perhaps Ms need to look at a better file system for Mass storage devices. 5 and 6 TB HDD's are quite common now even for consumer sector and not expensive either.

I know this is an exceptional job but it does show that something in File explorer isn't very efficient once you start manipulating large volumes of data - especially in small files. (Approx 290 TB of data consisting of 128,000 files in 55,000 odd directories)

I'm usually quite happy with Windows - but there is definitely a problem here. Fortunately it was a 1 off job though !!!!.... Read more

I have a ton of media I'd like to transfer over to an external HDD.
I don't want to simply select a bunch of folders and drag n drop over to the backup drive tho, I want to select individual files (or folders) and save them into their respectively named folders on the backup drive.

If I do this with the default windows file copy manager (via the drag n drop method) I'll end up with dozens of "File Transfer" windows, each with its own percent completion status, and it tends to choke out my machine.

Is there a 3rd party software that will allow me to individually select the files/folders I want and add them to a queue, then batch transfer the whole list to a user-specified destination path?

I'm thinking an FTP client but that seems a little overkill. Kinda looking for something simple and easy.

I need some help in C++. Hope someone could give some help..

How could I change base of a very large number? For example I want to change the number 7146329081 into base 32768. I did this by hand and the answer is 6 21480 21497. I could do the last part (21497) but the rest I got stuck.

Here is the function that I have so far..

#include <vector>
#include <cmath>
#include <iostream>

const int BASE = 32768;
void normalization(const vector<int> &vec)
int carry = 0, digit = vec[0], x = 0, totalcarry = 0;
vector<int> temp;
while ( x < vec.size() )
digit *= 10; totalcarry *=10;
digit += vec[x];
if ( digit > BASE )
carry = floor ( (digit+0.0) / BASE );
digit = digit - carry * BASE;
totalcarry += carry;
if (totalcarry > base) // Stuck in here!

cout << "Inside Carry : " << totalcarry << endl;

if u want to test it..put this in main :
vector <int> t;
t.push_back(7); t.push_back(1); t.push_back(4); t.push_back(6);
t.push_back(3); t.push_back(2); t.push_back(9); t.push_back(0);
t.push_back(8); t.push_back(1);

I'm trying to copy a DVD catalogue with over 30,000 product images onto a USB backup drive. Windows 7 Explorer cannot seem to do this. It copied some of the files but then just stopped copying.

I rebooted my machine and tried to copy the files again but Windows reports that it's going to take almost 4 hours to copy! I suspect, however, that it will fail again to complete the task. The backup device has a data transfer rate of 450Mbps so it really shouldn't take that long, surely?

Is there other software I should use that's better than Windows Explorer? Or some other method to accomplish what I would have expected to be a simple task?

Hi there
It's a "Roundabout" way but this should work and be quite fast.

If you have a decent backup program (NOT WINDOWS STANDARD BACKUP) that is capable of copying DATA as well as just "Imaging" a disk / partition then this method will work quickly and easily.

I'm using ACRONIS but any decent commercial backup program will work similarly.

1) Backup the data to a spare area on any disk. The file will be called something like xxxx.tib in the case of acronis.

2) Now Restore the data to your USB device.

Job done --easily and very quickly normally.

However, since there are no actual links to the retailers (all within the same .php page), the extractor cannot find them. Anyone have any ideas on an easy solution to this? It'll be a huge pain to go through and get them all manually. I tried finding the full web address to each state within the source, but with no luck. If I had that I could at least just have the extractor run on each state, which would still save a lot of time.

Hello there!
I've had this HP laptop running Win XP Pro-SP3 for almost two years. Since the very beginning, I've had this ongoing problem with websites causing IE to crash when accessed. I would say that this problem occurs with about 15 - 20 percent of sites. Examples of problem sites include:
and many, many more. Does anyone have some idea as to what might be causing this and how to correct it?

I have a computer owned by the family of a friend that is complaining about a large number of unwanted programs being installed on the computer. The family stated that some of those programs began opening pop-ups advertising various things, e.g. virus scans. One member of the family went through the control panel and manually removed several of the programs. Subsequently Ccleaner, McAfee, and MBAM scans have been run, each identifying varying PUPs and being instructed to remove them. According to the family most of the PUPs appear to be gone, however there does seem to be a small number (1 to a small handful) that reappear upon reboot.
The computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. At this point I am looking for advice on tools or techniques to verify the issue is confined to PUPs and there hasn't been a malware infection, and to identify any remaining PUPs and remove them.
I do not have regular access to the machine in question, however the friend does and will be able to run any scans, pull information, etc. as needed.
Thank you!

Hi Everyone,

The backup consists of Music, Pictures, AVI Video's, Documents and setup files.

Thanks in advance for any help

A:[SOLVED] Help Compressing Large Files

Hi !

The compression ratio will not depend on the size of the file but on its content. There's a built-in option in the backup utility (under advanced mode) that allows to compress the backup. Else 7-zip is probably the most efficient file compression program right now, give it a try. If the backup was already compressed then don't expect to gain much space using 7-zip, same if there are lots of videos, mp3, ... (such file formats are already compressed). Take a look here for more informations :

Make sure you store the backup on another drive (possibly an external drive or on another computer) else it'll be useless if the hard drive crashes.

I am trying to move files greater than 4GB from my internal 300GB hd to an external USB 1TB hd. Attempts to copy yield an error that there is not enough disk space, use disk cleaner. Clearly that is not the case. Apparently there is a size limit Xp has for file copy / move.

I started using Process Explorer (Process Explorer) a few days ago instead of the standard Task Manager. This was so that I could determine which program is blocking access to some JPG files I recently downloaded.

But thats not what I want to talk about. Take a look at the following screenshot:

The AUDIODG.EXE process has an impossibly high number of handles - 1,344,509. The screenshot was taken a few minutes before writing this post. Last night, the handle count for that process was just a little over 930,000.

A google for AUDIODG.EXE reveals that it is part of the Vista Audio Service. The follow is extracted from Larry Osterman's blog on MSDN:

One of the new audio components in Vista is a new process named audiodg.exe.

If you look at it in taskmgr, the description shows "Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation", but that's not really particularly helpful when it comes to figuring out what it does.

The short answer is that audiodg.exe hosts the audio engine for Vista. All the DSP and other audio processing is done in audiodg.exe. There are two reason it runs outside of the windows audio service.

The first is that there's 3rd party code that gets loaded into audiodg.exe.

I'm not sure if I have posted at the right place. I have been capturing AVI files with WinDV. I get really large files. Is there any sort of codec or somthing that would bring down the size. Preferably with as lite loss and artifacts as possible.

A:[SOLVED] Large AVI files from DV tapes problem

what sort of file sizes are we talking here?
If you are editing the video there are two ways of reducing final file sizes of the resulting video.
1. use codecs within the editing software to reduce the file size of the final output - depending on what editing software you are using, it should somewhere give you options for the file type (mpeg, avi, mov etc.) and within that choice should be some choices of bitrate, codec used etc. If you have either H264 or Xvid codecs installed use one of them - they will give you good quality at a fraction of the original file size.
2. use post-production compression software such as Auto Gordian Knot (freeware - link in my signature area) to compress after you have finalised your movie in your editing software. AGK uses Xvid codec to compress and offers resolution choices as well as choices for size by quality percentage, by target MB, or by fittting to CD or DVD size.

I edit in Premiere Elements 7 with little or no compression for the output then use AGK to compress using the quality percentage method (usually set to about 50-60%) with excellent results.

Fix Windows 7 SP1 Slow Startup Due to Large Number of Restore Points

A fix offered by Microsoft is designed to help customers deal with poor boot performance in specific scenarios involving Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

The Redmond company confirmed the issue and noted that impacted users have created a large number of restore points, a move which cause the slowing down of the startup process.

According to the software giant, affected customers are most likely using large hard disks in addition to create too many restore points on their machines.

According to the software giant, affected customers are most likely using large hard disks in addition to create too many restore points on their machines.

Microsoft did not explain just how slow the startup process gets, but it appears that boot performance degradation is sufficient for users to become aware that something it’s going on.

“This issue occurs because the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature exceeds the size limit of 512 kilobytes (KB). Each restore point creates a snapshot of Windows that Volsnap.sys must validate during the startup process,” Microsoft explained.

“When you create many restore points, the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature eventually exceeds the size limit of 512 KB, and cannot be stored. Therefore, startup I/O operations are not precached, and the startup process is slow.

About a week ago my PC somehow became infected with the Google redirect virus. I started searching for information about how to remove this, downloaded some programs (which may have caused more problems), and eventually discovered that the machine was infected with somewhere around 159 viruses. At first it was still possible to use the computer, but eventually the machine started freezing almost immediately after booting up. Before it came to that extremity, I had managed to download the Combofix program. Although I had read that this was not to be used without expert supervision, my machine had gone so haywire that I was on the verge of erasing the hard drive and losing all files. Before doing that, I decided I might as well try to run Combofix, which remarkably was still able to run despite all the infections/freezing desktop. I ran it in spite of being unable to disable my Symantec anti-virus program, as whenever I would disable it, it would automatically re-enable itself within moments, and I simply could not find a way to disable it. Combofix seemed to fix everything, and the PC was running well again.However, today my weekly antivirus scan alerted me to a large number of viruses, all but one of which it quarantined.

Some time last year when I ran a full-system scan on Microsoft Security Essentials, the total number of files scanned was 375,752. I recorded this number, because I was curious about how many files MSE scans.

I don't usually pay much attention to this number, but yesterday when I completed a full-system scan the total came out as 344,937.

Since I haven't really deleted much I was curious about why the number had dropped like this. I figured that MSE must be skipping some files like NIS 2012 does after repeated scans, but when I restart the computer and run the full-system scan again, the total comes out different each time. I've even tried turning-off and then turning-on real-time protection to see if it would make a difference, but the numbers continue to fluctuate each time.

A:Solved: MSE Number of Files Changing

I will stand corrected but I think MSE reports items scanned, rather than actual files

However the reason for the slight differences are that until a virus definition update MSE remembers the items scanned and will not scan them all again, unless it recognises changes
The exception to that is the virus definition update when it will scan more or less all

In simple terms, MSE remembers some of the files it scanned and will not scan again unless the file has changed.

First some background: we are running Windows SBS 2003, using roaming profiles for selected users. We are using ACT! 6.0 by Symantec for our contact manager software as well as using ACT! as a shell over Outlook Express for email.

The problem is I have a particular user whose profile is getting over 20GB in size!! Almost all of that is in the Outlook Express folder contained within his profile. Within the Outlook Express folder we have the various .dbx files for the inbox, outbox, etc. But there are also many .tmp files; some over 1 GB in size. I delete them from within the profile since I can't see a way to delete them from within Outlook express itself. Even after deleting them they seem to be reappearing or new ones are being recreated.

This is causing the login/logout time to take over 5 minutes sometimes.

Any ideas?

Have you tried to remove their Outlook profile and then create anew? If that doesn't work go into their account in Active Directory and temporarily remove the profile path and have them log off. Rename their local profile, and have them log in to create a new local profile. Then add the profile path later. You could also try to just replace the NTUSER.DAT in their local profile to retain all of their custom settings.

Thanks for a quick answer.

A:someone has my adsl account number

Yes, call your ISP (or do it online) and change your password.

Anything else depends on how much you don't trust her.
If you use that same password on other accounts like
email/banking, etc; better change your password on
those sites as well.

I belong to a large group that I send out emails to occasionally. Outlook 2007 on my Vista computer will not let me send to the whole group in one email. I have to split it into about 6 different emails to get it to go. When I was using Outlook 2000 on XP I did not have to do this. What setting can I use to force Outlook 2007 to accept all the addresses I want to enter so I just have to send my newsletter one time?

In a related question...Outlook 2007 will also hang up and not send the email to my group IF there is one email some where in the group that it does not like.
1) is there a way to force the email to go even if there is one bad address in the group and just bounce back an error message on the problem email?

2) Is there a way to make it tell me which email it has a problem with so I can manually remove it? Outlook Express will at least kick back a helpful error message and tell me what email address is causing a problem so I can just remove that name to make the email go to the rest of the people.

Thank you,

I have been trying to encrypt a folder using PGP 9.0.6 and Cryptainer Secure It 3.1.7.

What's weird is that the folder and the files within it will not encrypt and I don't know why? Further more the folder will actually be missing files. Can anybody explain to me? No, I am not setting the applications to erase files after completion.

PGP Conventional Encryption has worked finally. I tried all the obvious stuff first like closing all non-essential volumes (virtual disk that are created and encrypted by PGP), transferring the files to another drive, etc.

On a slightly separate issue. I did have some data corruption involving an older and separate group of files. However I deemed that to a hardware failure or a OS/Software failure. Figured it might provide valid insight.

Update: Now my PGP conventional encryption, non .exe file generation worked. I don't understand why it wouldn't work? Going to rename the source folder and try again. MY encrypted .exe file generation with PGP should work.

I tried again. PGP conventional encryption and PGP Zip both encrypted fine. I tried creating a PGP .exe file and again it failed and files are missing; why?

Hi all,
Recently, I had to repair my Windows XP Pro SP2 because my PC stuck when I restarted it after some malware removal. It stuck and Ctrl+Alt+Del and safe mode couldn't help. So, I repaired it with the CD that came with the original XP.

My PC had 3 user accounts before I did the repair operation, one of which was password-protected and marked 'private' by sharing and security options. My problem is, after the repair operation, I cannot access the files I stored in that account because I have no way of logging on to the previously created account or accessing it from C:\Documents and Settings.(cuz it keeps saying Access is denied). Is there any other way I can recover the files??

Thank you

I have 2 accounts on my computer. One account is administrator and the other is limited. I started downloading files on one account, but I realized that I had downloaded them to the wrong account. I tried copying them to another device and onto the account that needed those files, but when they where on the other account they wouldn't work or open. I'm not sure why this would be. I did recently go to the trouble to follow an internet xp hardening guide due to getting infected by adware/viruse and spyware and needing to reformat my computer 3 time in the last three months. I suspect it might be one of my hardening settings that is preventing files from one folder from working on anything else. But I'm not sure. If it helps the files from the first account have green lettering while the file of the second account are black for some reason.

Any ideas?

Hello. I can't open the guest folder usgin my admin ccount on windows 7. Each time I need a file I have to login using guest account and its frustrating. I just clic on the folder and nothing happens

A:Can't access to guest account files from another account

Administrator account is not for general usage, and NOT your own account.
Administrator account required password to access.
Usually, no one use Administrator account.
Do note the differences between "Administrator" account and "admin" rights.
Administrator account have full rights to anything and everything.
"Admin" rights is just act as administrator and is not an account.

As the 1st newly create account (mainly your own account) may have that admin rights.
With admin rights, you are accessible to create accounts for other users.

Also for guest account, by default have no password.
Guest account is always available, but need to initiate it for use, and no password is needed.

If you create guest account, it will not be a guest account, and this will be another user account, but the name "Guest" may conflict with the system created "Guest" account.

In conclusion, you may started the wrong way.

So, if your had manually create an Guest account with password, it is not a guest account at all.
But an user account with the name "Guest".
When you activated the Guest account, there will not be any password.

A:Copy files from corrupt account to new account

It may be a folder ownership problem that's causing "Access Denied".
That's because you are trying to copy folders from an account to which you are not currently logged in to.
Although both accounts (old & new) belong to the same person, Windows doesn't know that.
All it knows is that a user is trying to copy folders from another user's account, so it blocks access to them to preserve the owner's privacy.

What you need to to do is "take ownership" of the folders you wish to copy.

Hello all. First time poster here, and I've got a doozy of a problem. I just hope this is in the right section. Pretty much all large files are corrupt if I save them to either of my hard drives. The limit seems to be somewhere around 30mb... under that I'm fine, over that I get CRC errors out the wazoo. I get occasional glitches in Windows, and I tried to run System File Checker, but it couldn't repair a LOT of stuff, complaining of hash mismatches. I've run Scandisk and it doesn't find any problems. I ran MemTest86+ for 48 hours, without a single memory error. I've used SeaTools for Windows and both drives pass all tests; SeaTools for DOS reports the drives are fine but the file system has errors it can't fix. I ran SpinRite through on both drives... Took it a couple of days but came back without any unusual errors. I can't for the life of me figure out what's going wrong... Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

System specs can be accessed below on the "My System Specs" link.

A:CRC errors with large files...

That sounds like a corrupted MFT. Have a look at this: (check the web - there are more tools)

The MFT (Master File Table) is sometimes corrupted. If Microsoft's Checkdisk (chkdsk) failed to repair the MFT, run TestDisk. In the Advanced menu, select your NTFS partition, choose Boot, then Repair MFT. TestDisk will compare the MFT and MFT mirror (its backup). If the MFT is damaged, it will try to repair the MFT using the backup. If the MFT backup is damaged, it will use the main MFT.
If both MFT and MFTMirr are damaged and thus cannot be repaired using TestDisk, you might want to try commercial software like Zero Assumption Recovery, GetDataBack for NTFS.

This is more of an annoyance than a probem, but I would naturally like to find a solution.

I am running Windows XP Pro, and I do a lot of video capturing and compressing of home movies. As a result, I regularly deal with extremely large .avi files, sometimes over 1 GB in size. Every time I click on a file once to highlight it, Windows XP scans through the file to find out what it's properties are: dimensions, bitrate, compression, etc. That is a really nifty feature, but it's really only useful if you have small files. The behemoths I work with take quite some time to scan through, especially if there was a compression error during processing and the file is not complete. And, of course, Explorer won't really let me do anything else with the file (move, rename, etc) until it's finished scrutinizing it.

Windows 2000 did not do this, as far as I know.

I've been all over the web searching for postings about this, but I finally had to ask.

Anyone know how to disable this "feature"? I'm sure there's a registry setting somewhere ...


- Kevin

A:XP Scanning Through Large Files

When a folder is viewed with .avi files Windows XP reads the files to create the thumbnails. It can be disabled by renaming the CLSID for AVI.

Run REGEDIT, select Edit, Find, enter: {87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}
and rename it. Right click it and select Rename.
i.e. -{87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}

Does anyone know if it is possible to recover these files and if so what is the process. most software I have tried only shows those files deleted from the recycle bin. I can find no useful reference to recovering large files on the web.

A:Copying many large files to USB HD, how to que up?

Hi bonkboy,

Welcome to TSG!

The easiest thing to do is write a script.

Let's assume that writing scripts is new or that you do not know how to write one.

Here is an example of a script (Note - since I don't know what OS you are running, this script may not work on your particular OS or any OS due to errors in the script, but it will give you an idea of how to do what you want as a first cut):

#! /bin/sh
# name of script is:
filelist=`ls -1 $1 $fromdir`
for i in $filelist
cp $i $todir

Note: $1 and $2 are the first and second parameters passed into the script from the command line.

You would first need to make the script executable:
$ chmod +x

Then you would need to invoke the script, as follows:
$ ./ <todir> <fromdir>
where you would replace todir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the USB HD is mounted, and, similarly, replace fromdir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the files to be copied are currently located.

You can start here to learn about Shell Scripting and go from there according to your system (Windows, Mac, Linux/Unix).

Hi, my external hdd made some clicking sounds so I am backing everythingh up and am going to send it back to freecom now.
I am trying to back up .iso files of around 4.6gb in size.

The problem is that when i try to paste them onto another external hdd an error comes up that says "Cannot copy [filename]: There is not enough free disk space" It also says I should run a disk clean up. There is plenty of disk space (440GB+) so I don't think that is the problem. I can copy these large iso files onto my internal sata hdd though, only to find that I cannot paste them back onto the failing external or another 440gb external hdd i am using as storge because of the same problem.
I have little space left on the internal, and a lot that needs to be used to back up these isos stuck on the external frecom hdd.
All the hdds are in NTFS apart from the 440GB one, but the other day I could copy some .isos of the same size onto it from the sata internal one which was good.
The iso files run fine in xp, the external hdd that made the clicking noises is fragmented, but I don't think this would be the reason why it cannot copy files to another external hdd.

i have recently completed building a budget pc with the following hardware

syntax usa motherboard

amd athlon xp 2600 1.25ghz

kingston pc2700 512mb ram (single module)

80gb maxtor sata 7200rpm hard drive

no brand cd/dvd reader cd burner (did some digging and found that its made by samsung)

kaser ati radeon 9200se video card

i first noticed the problem when i began installing half life 2, i recieved the 1335 error, something about a .cab file (a very large file when i looked on disk)

then i noticed it again when installing an EA game called ultima online Samurai Empire, where i recieved an error randomly, sometimes it was the art.mul or the art2.mul or the sound file

ive noticed by emptying my temp file (run>temp> delete all its content) will allow an install to proceed further then if i didnt remove the temp files
however it still cannot complete an install

however things like my motherboard drivers, and other files that arent very large can be read, written and installed very easily

ive ran the maxtor software that checks for hardrive errors and i passed every test

i have no software to test the cd drive

this is my first build and id realy like to begin playing half life 2 death match (and i need to install ms office so i can work on school projects)

im running windows xp pro with sp2

any help on this would be grand, thanks in advance

A:troubles with large files

I would guess the CD drive is not reading correctly from the disk. I've had simalar problems. Just certain programs would not load completely. Invested a few bucks in a decent DVD/CD-rom and the problem went away. You may have other problems. Someone else may have some input. (BTW, I believe an Athlon XP 2600 runs at 1.917ghz, not the 1.25 as mentioned in your post)

I receive an error message about the Tiff File being too large (anything >1MG) when using Photo Viewer with W7 OS. I was trying to view the files from the DVD drive. Tiff files under 1 mg are not an issue. I can't believe there is such a small limitation. Does anyone else have this issue?
