XP is too slow with large number of files.

Q: XP is too slow with large number of files.

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?

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,

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 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.

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?

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.

Hi,

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

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.

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.

Well, I don't think 50 is a big number - but I do agree 50 restore points are really more than what one (read: I) need.

That explains a bit or two. Will either take down these restore points to a sane number or apply this patch. Unsure which of them, but I will definitively work on this.

Hello,
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

*FACEPALM*
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.

Hello,

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

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 to download updates for my computer.
My problem is I only have dial-up inernet acces,with a 56kbs modem. When my downloads start, the speeds start at about around 20kbs then rapidly decline to around 2kbs and then stay steady between 2kbs and about 4kbs.

Is there a way I can speed up the downloads without swithching internet service or spending lots of money?
I need to download about 294mb worth of files for my computer and can not be on the computer all day waiting for the downloads. Total of 3 or 4 files and they are all large. Also High speed internet access is unavailable in my area at this time or else I would have it.

A:Slow Downloading Of Large Files

Well if your dial-up is 56k, then your average transfer rate should be at around 4-6 Kbps on average. There arent really any ways to optimise your internet speed though, you probably will have to get better internet when it is availible otherwise there isnt much that you can do. Also, dont download any programs that say they optimise internet speed, because, they are Spyware and do either nothing or slow down your internet even more. Also, I would say that downlaoding that much with dial-up could take a couple of days. Hope you get broadband in your area soon!

Did a clean install of Win 8.1 Pro x64 on a desktop i7-2660K machine a week ago. Since then, there's been a problem that didn't exist before the clean install, namely web page loading is very slow while downloading large files, a few hundred mb to a few gb.

This is a relatively fast cable system (Charter), with line to the computer through an Linksys E1200 router (for wireless laptop). Any ideas?

A:Slow web when downloading large files after clean install

I'm interested in any responses to this as well, because in my opinion Microsoft screwed it up.

I'm not sure when they changed it, but I noticed they changed this quite a while back. The change they made seems to give full bandwidth to the first thing you start downloading, but as you've discovered it's a nightmare like this because it means you can't do anything internet related until the download has finished. In the case of a large download, that's frustratingly limiting.

How it was before, Windows seemed to balance the load so you could have something downloading in the background, but still carry on with other things on the internet. How it is now, the second thing you try to access on the internet will usually result in a timed out error and if doesn't it's so incredibly slow that it's unusable.

It's not just with file downloads either, if you've got a heavy loading webpage, you can't just leave it loading that page and go view another webpage, because the first webpage sucks all the bandwidth to itself . Also, if you click a link on a heavy loading webpage, it won't do anything due to the webpage sucking all the bandwidth. So you either have to wait for the whole page to load first, or you have to open the link in a new tab, then close the heavy loading webpage tab.

I don't know what they were thinking to be honest because it's pretty bad as it is now. Maybe on a super-fast Microsoft LAN they don't notice how bad it is, but in the real world the changes t... Read more

First off, I've had Windows 7 installed for a good few months now, and every time I go into a folder with one or two large .tiff or some other picture file, the whole computer slows down to a crawl, making me wait for anything up to some hours before it'll even show the preview thumbnail (and not letting me do anything else during). Opening these files has been tiring also, as it just means more waiting. It gets so bad that the mouse pointer belatedly jumps when I move it, refusing to go along smoothly.

A good chunk of my education relies heavily on my ability to produce digital art and designs, and I can't well do that when the files are so difficult to open, let alone preview. I've changed the view in folders to only allow the text to appear, and this has helped with the folders loading up. Of course, when I curse over any of the .tif files, that's it - I have to put up with hours of waiting (not even ctrl+alt+del works) or restart with the power button.

Are y ou using "homegroup" for networking? Sometimes on some mixed OS networks homegroup has a problem with connectivity and slow downs.

You can verify if it is the problem by making a new network connection using "workgroup" and see if the problem still exists. If it does not you can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

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;
x++;
digit += vec[x];
if ( digit > BASE )
{
carry = floor ( (digit+0.0) / BASE );
digit = digit - carry * BASE;
totalcarry += carry;
if (totalcarry > base) // Stuck in here!
temp.push_back(digit);

}
}
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);

I think my computer has a rootkit, and a fake/altered version of google chrome on it,  along with possibly alered system files which ensure ease of access to it.
 
Any help would be appreciated. I have already run a FRST scan, but have yet to do anything related to fixing the problems as I am more than certain I would end up breaking something. That's what happened on a laptop I attempted to remove a Zeusbot from.
 
HD wipe and OS reinstall fixed that particular problem, but doing that with this PC is not something I am all that keen on at the moment.

Hello -

An end user wants to quickly gather the mail addresses of every retailer on this site:

http://www.hydrofarm.com/wheretobuy.php

I found a nice free email extractor application:

http://emailextractorpro.com/

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.

Thanks!

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:

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.

Cheers

I did some work for a small company (replacing all PCs with newer PCs). They wanted to donate the PCs to a local youth group that I help out with and I told them I would take care of it.

I now have eight (8) Dell Optiplex Gxi 133 and seven (7) Dell Optiplex Gxi 166. All the hard drives have been fdisked. All hardware is identical (except for the processor). I even picked up nine (9) Dell Lattitude 166.

And may be hard to believe, but company was very good about keeping ALL original documentation and software. (Windows 95 and Office 97).

What would be the easiest software to use to make one good image and then transfer to all the PCs...and one image of the laptops? I really don't have time to individually load everything on each PC and laptop.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!!

My friend decided to download something without double checking, and via installation a huge number of unwanted software were installed on his computer. Immediately after installation, both Chrome and Internet Explorer were modified. After restarting the laptop once, the following things happened

1. The screen brightness was changed, and power option could not be accessed to revert the change
2. The "start" taskbar was changed from blue to white, which usually indicated something was changed in the power and/or graphics setting as far as I know.
3. Internet access was removed, and windows could not detect any hardware to connect to the internet. The laptop's model number was Asus X555L and it ran on Wireless before.

Hello:
 
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!

Hey guys, I don't do much programming, but need to create a huge list of numbers in a certain format. And not sure where to start or know the proper commands.

I need to create a list of sequential numbers in hexidecimal (0-F) and need it formatted a certain way

00000000-00000000-00000000-00000000
to
FFFFFFFF-FFFFFFFF-FFFFFFFF-FFFFFFFF

The number is 32 to the x16 and I do need the hyphens in the numbers and a "," in front of every number and a "." at the end of every number.

Then put all numbers into a plain text file.

If any one can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

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:






What is AUDIODG.EXE?
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. Audio hardware vendors have the ability to install custom DSPs (called Audio Processing Objects or APOs) into the audio pipeline.

This is very strange. Here is my 'Process Explorer', executed with administrative credentials of the same, taken just before writing this post. As you can see, mine only has a handle count of 116, and has been fluctuating between ~110 and ~130.



Check the properties/details of this file. Here is what I get:

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. The one that was not quarantined is titled atapi.sys.vir. I would be curious to know how my system became this badly infected with so many viruses, and especially how I can delete the atapi virus, and delete all the other viruses which have been qua...

Hi there,

I have obtained an Excel 2010 workbook containing 1339 sheets of tables. The tables are all in the exact same format and represent an itinerary. Each sheet was extracted from a different pdf page and each entry is unique. There are 34 row entries on each sheet and each entry has 9 columns.

I need to be able to combine all 1339 tables into one master table on one sheet so I can sort and filter as one.

Many posts have discussed the Consolidate function however this involves naming ranges for each sheet. Obviously I can't do this easily for 1339 sheets.

Is there a way I can get all the data appended or concatenated into one master sheet? I have tried importing to Access 2010 to help but it only appears to allow one sheet at a time.

I feel like this should be easy so apologize if it is in fact.

Thanks

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.
TWO QUESTIONS:
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,
Cindy

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

http://www.cypherix.com/

http://www.symantec.com/business/theme.jsp?themeid=pgp

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?

It seems that almost every time I download a file over 300MB, it is corrupted when I try to use it. This mostly affects zips, rars, and game demos, so I imagine it might have something to do with compressed filetypes. I get the errormessage saying that the files are corrupt, and to try downloading it again. So I do, from the same location, and then from another location. Same problems. I just ran Ad-aware, Spybot, and SpySweeper, but the problem has persisted.

It's just downloaded files that don't work, and seems to be limited to compressed files (but that may just be because you don't often download anything bigger that's not in a rar).

I figure someone's going to ask for a HijackThis log, so here you go:

We have three PC's, one running XP Pro and the other two XP Home (all SP3). All have IE7 with Google toolbars, all have Acrobat Reader v.8. The two with XP Home can download a full PDF file of any size and read the whole thing in the browser without problems. The one with XP Pro won't do that - it downloads (say) the first 0.5 MB of the file and gets no further. IE7 displays the bit of the PDF it's got, but stops responding and has to be shut down from the Task Manager. Right clicking and "Save target as.." works fine. I've used the work round of disabling "View in Browser" in Adobe Reader, but the behaviour seems very odd indeed and baffles me! It's quite consistent on any PDF file greater than about 0.5MB.

Has anyone else encountered this and found a solution, other than disabling "browser view" as I have done?

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.

I have recently started using iPhone with Windows 7, and I *think* that some of the videos and photos transferred from iPhone to Windows 7 HDD may be using up much of my HDD space.

Besides the obvious: Checking each file and folder for size and contents, is there a 'performance program' that will identify the larger files on a drive? (FWIW, I recall seeing this as an option one a program I have used in my computer 'travails' over the years.)

Hi,

I recently experienced some problems with my computer and when I set up a Nova Backup to my external drive I noticed some files on my C drive that I hadn't seen before. Since they had a date and time stamp exactly at the time my problem occurred (9/8 11:55am), I was worried about them. They have now changed to 9/17 and I have seen some reference to them when I googled them, so I guess they're legit but I'm still not clear what they are about. Seems odd I never noticed them before when I set up a backup.

The files are:

Could you please explain these and when they change and what they are used for?

I'm one of the network administrators at my business. We have set up a local VPN so our networks domain spans about 1/2 a mile to another location. My problem is that I have a 10Mb network bridge connecting the two buildings and need to send large Acronis Backup files between the two locations between the servers for data storage. I've tried to send the files many different ways, but always seem to fail. The backup makes a full backup once a week (40 GB) and then makes incremental backups the rest of the week (1-3 GB). The incremental backups are able to be sent over the network fine. However the full backup files take about 10 hours then error out. They work fine until the worksite is open and network traffic causes it to error out. I need a way to send this file faster and more efficiently. Is there any method or software that would help this? I know it's slow mainly to the 10Mb connection, but if anyone knows anything that helped their files transfer more securely that information would help.

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.

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 ...

Thanks.

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.

Hi. For a while I've had trouble downloading large files from the internet where the download would, after a while of running smoothly, drop speed rapidly and then stay at 0.00KB/s. I could fix this by pausing and unpausing the download which would make it start from where it left off.
I am currently trying to download the game Guild Wars 2, I have the launcher on my pc but the problem occurs when I launch it and it tries to update/install. The download just stops at around 3% after downloading at about 1.1MB/s and I have no way of doing my usual fix.
I have tried running the launcher as administrator, deactivating my firewalls and re-trying the launcher about 20 times now but nothing works.
I am fairly certain it is not my router as this same download problem does not occur on my dad's pc.
I am connected to the router via ethernet cable.

I have an Acer G3610 with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and WebrootSecureAnywhere anti-virus.
My PC did have McAfee pre-installed but I have un-installed it since.

How do I unzip a 214 MB cab file with FilZip? Whenever I try to extract it to either the same folder as all the other files from that particular application, or into a new folder or anywhere including the desktop, FilZip stops responding. Would that even be because the file is too big, or do I need to reinstall Filzip or find another Unzip app ?
 

A:Unzipping large files

It seems that FilZip once had problems handling large files (though the size was more like >1.5 Gb). I would try WinZip, or if you're using WinXP, then its own native compressed files handler. Given the size of the file, try not to do anything else on your PC while it unzips and it will take a while to do. Try leaving it for a while (10 minutes) if it shows up as Not Responding. Sometimes it resolves itself.

I only have the same RAM as you and I have had 2 or 3 Eight Meg Excel workbooks open at the same time as well as working on this forum.

Just about every time I try to permanently delete a large file or folder, either by shift/delete or emptying the recycle bin the operation hangs up.

The little window opens and it counts up the size of the file and that it. Nothing else overtly happens. The status bar never starts indicating and the window just sits there with the little green lights chasing each other across it. If I try to cancel or close the window it nothing happens.

During the time all this is going on, I can hit ctrl/alt/del and select Task Manager and it simply goes back to the desktop with this window still squatting there doing it's thing. I have pinned TM to the task bar and tried starting it from there but it never starts. Eventually everything just slows to a stop and nothing works which would seem to indicate some kind of memory leak. There are no error messages during any of this.

I have to hit reset and restart the computer that way in order to regain control and we all know how bad an idea this is. I've already had my boot sector eaten once causing me to have to do a total rebuild and I'd prefer not to have to do it again. Any ideas what I can look for here?

Edit: Forgot to mention that when I do get the computer restarted the file or folder I was attempting to get rid of is usually gone so the operation itself is taking place. I'm just not getting my computer back when it's done.

I've recently become accustomed to checking my temp folder daily. I noticed there were a few large files in there usually prefixed with BIT. I deleted them, only to notice they kept showing up again. Currently found files:

BIT11.temp
BIT1A6A.tmp

They are usually around 35mb in size. Googling didn't really help... most I could find was some problem with Windows Server 8 or something... and otherwise it was mentioning a problem with broken windows updates. Problem is, I don't have automatic updates enabled, in fact, I have the whole service disabled. The main reason this is a problem for me is because the files are fairly large, and if these are getting downloaded constantly, they could be slowing down my already slow internet. I've already ran a spyware check with Superantispyware, and a virus scan with NOD32... and both showed no infections of any kind.

My current set-up is Windows XP, SP2.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I noticed occasionally a wl-setup.exe or some such will appear in temp as well, also around 35mb in size... The only thing I use that runs on live is MSNmessenger. I can't seem to force any of these files to download by using any sort of application... so any ideas?

A:Large bit*.tmp files in %temp%

I would post in the malware forum. According to this link, BIT1.tmp (also seen with the alias BIT11.tmp) is a malware dropper.

As most people know, recorded video files can be huge, larger than the capacity of the recycle bin. It has been my experience that files that are too big for the recycle bin are purged directly from the hard disk. I have experimented with recovering such files but have had no success. 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:Recovering large files

There is some "data recovery software"<---google out there that can retrieve such a file but there will be data loss and offhand I don't know of a free software that's up to the task. Any of the ones you have to pay for well even if they have a trial the have filesize restrictions until software is licensed.

it seems something is clogging up over 20gb of my hardrive and i'd like to find out what it is, unfortunately i have no idea where to begin with, so i'd like a tool that shows me the biggest file on my system so i can delete it.

my hardrive is 80gb, and windows reported 76gb usable, i dont have any large program install at all, the only thing i have is my own folder holding every single one of my files, in total it weights 50gb, and besides this folder, i have absolutely nothing else install on my pc, so i figure something is clogging up my 26gb, and i'd like to destroy it as soon as possible.
thanks for the help.

I am using XP Pro - I need to copy a large file from one removable hard drive to another. About 37GB. Windows keeps running a copy for a while then locks up and kicks me out - usually with very little data copied.

Is there a work around or program that can do this?
 

A:Copying Large Files

strange - it should work,

do you have a power setting if idel turn off hardrives etc

I copyed 200GB of data from one removable to another over the weekend - so it should work

you could try copying to the PC and then from PC to drive

OK

Installed Vista HP

All fine save one (big problem)

In short I cant copy my music and pic dvd. Have a lot of files (almost 4gb). It gets to about 60% and stops copying as per the screenshot. Sometimes it tells me I have not enough memory to complete the opration (not the case as my hard drives are 160gb with plenty of space)



I have tried copying it to my Master hard drive, slave hard drive and External USB drive, all with the same result.

I think its the number of files (20,000+) as I can copy say a game dvd to my hard drive without issue (4.5gb but like 5 files)

Desperate for a solution or a workaround

My specs are Vista Home Premium 32bit, 2gb Ram, 3.4ghz Pentium, 2x160gb Internal Samsung hard drives, Sony G120 DVD Rewriter.

Thankyou

I did some data recovery and pulled over 8 million &quot;files&quot; from an external HD.

Searching 'mp3' and 'doc' I verified there are many valid files on my internal drive.

However, when I try to copy them back the window disappears after about 5 minutes of &quot;preparing to copy&quot; and there is nothing on the drive when I look.

It feels like my system is getting bogged down because of the absurd # of files! I can't even right click -> properties to see exactly how many are on there. It starts going really slow and I get impatient after about 8 million.

Welcome windows especially 64 bit can handle huge amounts file/folder/ the slowdown may be either it is using up your memory or maybe the hard drive cant keep up. You could either use Acronis or ghost to back them up to one space. Or failing that try doing it in small chunks.;

Let us know if you need more help

I want to transfer some big files from my laptop to my desktop pc (both win xp), i have set up a direct link with a parallel cable setting the laptop as the host. However, when i log on to the laptop i cannot seem to find the shared c drive in network places. I am pretty sure that all my workgroup settings are correct and both user accounts have administrative privilages. I remember getting a message at one point when i asked to find other workgroup computers saying that the mshome is not available and that the user may not have access to it but i am sure that i have given each user account full access. Any ideas?
 

A:need to transfer large files

You can try mapping the drive instead of sharing. Browse to the other computer via Network PLaces. Right click HD on other computer and select map network drive. It will ask for a drive letter, select whatever you want. Once mapped, I believe the drive will appear in My computer.

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: copyscript.sh
todir=$1
fromdir=$2
filelist=`ls -1 $1 $fromdir`
for i in $filelist
cp $i $todir
end
exit

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 copyscript.sh

Then you would need to invoke the script, as follows:
$ ./copyscript.sh <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).

Greetings,

I need to stream large files between two computers (htpc & other is just for storing large files) that are separated by a wall. Both are connected to powerline network adapters and a third computer has a powerline adapter hooked up to a wireless router, all are connected via windows 7 network (all are running windows 7.

Since both network plugs are used I was thinking about using a usb network cable to stream bluray movies from the one that is stored to the other. Wireless/powerline still cause stuttering, doesn't seem to be a fast enough connection.

Is this a good idea? Is there a better solution?

Thanks, marrjam

A:How to stream large files

1. Powerline devices are not fast enough to stream.
2. Unless you use Wireless "n" it will not be fast enough to stream. I have tried 54mb wireless...it does not work well.

Direct wire at 1GB is perfect works very very well. 100mb connections work well, but hi-end BluRay, you will need more bandwidth.

Hope that helps. -WS

80gb maxtor sata 7200rpm hard drive

_________________________________________________________

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)
