Large Files are locking up Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit

Q: Large Files are locking up Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit

I am a tech and have done over 30 clean installs and cant figure out what the heck is going on with large as in 1gig or more file transfers hanging up. All clean installs with tests done immediately after activation and updates. This is a MS problem. I have tried all the various fixes and find that the C drive seems to handle network files best. In multidrive situations turning off the Remote Differential Compression also seems to help. Please get a hot fix as this is on multiple machines and very easy to duplicate. I would say it would be a rare install not to lock from a C drive to a D drive when file sizes are more then 2 gigs. You guys are running out of time. I am a consultant and I'm ready to get sick over a great operating system that's worthless for large video files.

A: Large Files are locking up Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit

Did you try this one

Apparently you need to tell Windows that you want to use the machine as a file server and that it should allocate resources accordingly. Set the following registry key to ‘1′:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache
and set the following registry key to ‘3′:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size
After making these changes and restarting, I haven’t seen this issue arise again

It's weird, my system, with ADSL and routered with another computer in my house, is crashing on large downloads (i.e 100megs+)

Tonight I tried to download a game from Gigex, at 75% and 300 some megs my computer froze. Tried it again and same results.

Any ideas? If they support resumed downloads that would help, I've now got a 300 meg file sitting here.
 

A:Computer locking up in large downloads

It could be a problem with timeouts. If you don't get the download done in time, it will cut you off. One thing you can try is to get a download manager that allows you to resume your downloads. Download Accelerator Plus, StarDownloader, or any other.

A friend of mine is writing a book. He is nearly finished it and is at the "tweaking" stage.

Is it possible for him to "lock" each chapter at the top of a page? In other words, if he wants to add a section somewhere in chapter one it will add a page at the end of chapter one (if necessary), ensuring that chapter two remains at the top of the page that it's on?

I've got a 1100 MS Word book here but can't see anything about that in it. Can it be done?

Thanks

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?

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.

Hiya guys, I am at the end of my tether! I am a big music collector, and have never had any issues with my PC and audio. I am using Windows 8.1 and for months things have worked great. My chosen audio is ALWAYS MP3 320kbps as I find it much more flexible than FLAC, and can barely notice the difference in quality so it works well for me.

Normally when I download FLAC files, I run them through a program called Goldwave (an app I have used for years) and convert them to MP3 320, I tell Goldwave to delete the FLAC files once conversion is complete.

I noticed recently that the FLAC files are not being deleted, problem with Goldwave I thought, but on further inspection, I cannot delete FLAC files within Windows Explorer!!

It says I need permission to delete them, even though I am Windows 8.1 administrator. When I right click a FLAC file, the delete and rename part has a UAC shield next to the text. Strange thing is, if I leave the FLAC file along for about 5 minutes, the shields vanish, and I am able to delete, why is this happening?

I previously messed around with UAC settings, but nothing has worked, when the shields display in the right click menu, I try an app called Unlocker, and even this wont delete them. Please note, this is ONLY happening with FLAC files, any ideas what's gripping onto these files? How I find out? And stop it.

Don't know much about this but is there anything in the Goldwave manual, section 8 / Delete:

I am running Win 8.1 Enterprise, recently repair refreshed. When I am cleaning up my desktop and internal files, I frequently (+80% of the time) cannot move a file or folder from one directory to another without getting and error message saying that it cannot be moved because it is open in another program.

Of that 80% of the time, 99% is because Windows Explorer is using it. Seems like, of course it is being accessed by Windows explorer since I am using that utility of Windows to move the file. Duh!?! But this happens even with files\folders that have not been accessed for months. It is so frequent that I just go ahead and check and unblock every file\folder I want to move with a program called 'Lock Hunter' before I try to move the file(s).

This is the same for renaming files\folders and any directory type action. This seems crazy. I would think Win Explorer is there to help us move things around instead of preventing it all the time. I don't recall Win 7 ever doing this. It all seems to have started with Windows 8.

Does anyone have any idea how to stop Windows from doing this?

Thanks in advance,
RD Wirr

A:How to Stop Windows Explorer from locking Files

Your problem might come from Explorer building thumbnails. This process can be rather slow, depending on the file type. When moving folders, explorer will also try to access the thumbnails cache of this folder, so you might be better off clearing it (or manually deleting the hidden Thumbs.db beforehand).
Check this and see if it solves your problem :

I recently had to replace the HD in a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows XP Pro SP3. I rebuilt the HD installing Windows, FireFox, Malwarebytes, and other needed software programs. I tried to download the printer driver for an HP printer which was 70 MBs. After restarting the download a few times I was finally able to get all of it. The client would like the HP software package as well which is 500+ MBs. When I attempt to download this file, about 25 MBs download and then then it stalls and times out. I have tried on different days but had the same result. The laptop is connected to the internet using Charter Spectum with an ethernet cable to the modem. This is a very fast connection at about 60 mbps. The 500 MB download should complete in about 7-10 minutes. Smaller downloads are almost instantaneous. It seems to be specific to the large file downloads that take more time. I have tried resetting the TCP/IP protocol and running the WINSOCK fix. I have also tried disabling the firewall in VIPRE Internet Secuity but nothing I have tried has resolved the download issue. Would appreciate any and all suggestions. I have googled the problem but have not found a solution there either.
 

A:Trouble downloading large files with Windows XP PRO SP3

Easiest solution is to download the file on to a computer off site using a different service provider. Put the file on a USB stick and take it to the client.

I think the client needs to contact Charter about the difficulty downloading items from the internet.
1. Does Charter still support XP? That might be part of the problem.
2. Is there a limit on data downloaded? Comcast has caps in some areas. I'm not sure what happens when you approach or go over the limit because I am no where near any data allowance cap.

As a suggestion, test what happens when you fully uninstall (disabling is not enough) your anti-virus utility and 3rd-party firewalls, if any.

The most likely cause is interference from a kernel-mode filter driver.

I am currently trying to make a copy of the files on my laptop to an external drive but after 1 Gb of data is transferred the status box when copying stops and doesn't seem to be copying over any further files. When I try to cancel the process it does not register that I have pressed cancel and I have to shut off my laptop manually, waiting a few seconds before turning it back on.

I have uninstalled avast believing that it might be causing an issue with the transfer but the result is still the same.

Recently after a failed attempt it has rendered my hard drive back to an ntfs unreadable state due to error code 0x80070570 .

Any help to resolve either issue would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hello,
I hope someone can help me. I have 2 internal-sata hard drives(320 gig. And 2tb.) and 1 external usb/2.0 hard drive (750 gig.). The pc is an old dell gx520 tower with a fresh install of win7 pro. No antivirus, network connection, or firewall enabled. Processor is a Pentium4 running 3 GHz with 1.5 gigs of ram.

This is the problem: If I do a search on the 2tb. Drive for all of the jpegs, I have a total of about 84000 pictures. When I select all of the pictures and right click-copy and try to paste to another hard drive the pc will lock up and won’t display a copy status window. Windows says it’s not responding.
Now, if I right click-copy a single folder which has anywhere, from a few files to several hundred gigs. of data in it, using the same 2tb. Drive, it will copy over to another drive just fine.


I have tried, changing the swap file from “windows managed” to, up to 20 gig. Thinking the search was maybe having to write to the swap file. This didn’t work. I also booted in to safe mode and tried to do the copy from the 2tb. To the 320gig. drive and still no difference. I have tried this with windows copy handler and teracopy. It all has something to do with the fact that I am doing a search for the files before copying them.

Thanks for you help.

Okay I will do my best to try and explain this clearly.

I had one laptop hard drive crash/fail on me...so I purchased a new laptop and transferred all my files over via a window's backup and crash plan backup to make sure I got everything. Now the new laptop is having the same issue as the old laptop--obviously there is a corrupt file somewhere. The hard drive on the new laptop has not failed--yet--but 308GB of my 750 HDD has been sucked up by these temp files. I have attached a word doc with 2 screen shots--first showing the main window with all of these tmp files and the second with one file opened.

There 99 of these tmp files, with roughly 200,000 items in each taking up a lot of HDD space. I tried to delete one of these folders and the process took forever and it got hung up.

First, what are these folders and has anyone heard of this kind of issue.

Secondly, is there a way I can delete these files by by-passing the recycle bin since these things are so large. I thought I read somewhere I could use cmd to do this, but am not sure how.

I've used CCleaner and Malwarebytes and neither touched these files. As a matter of fact the Windows\Temp file never seems to get cleared out unless I manually delete what's in there. I was able to delete other files in that folder, just not these. I am getting very concerned for the life expectancy of my new HDD.

Also, one final note. I ran a chckdsk scan. It got hung up at 74% on Stage 1 and refused to budge from there... Read more

Hello,

First of I would like to welcome everybody on this forum, whenever I had any trouble with my computer I managed to find the solution on this site, however, this time I am helpless, so I have registered myself.

Now, back to the case,

I am using Sony Vaio laptop with, i5 2410M, 8gb of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 410M graphics card and sony motherboard, running Windows 7 Professional.

Couple of days ago computer started freezing when downloading torrent files, also during copying any larger files from partition D. I run checkdisk, literally checked what I could, found nothing, so I decided I will do a clean install of Windows. That did not help either so after excluding hard drive failure (no bad sectors, no errors) I decided to nuke the whole drive so everything would be fresh.
Used DBAN, which finished after 10 hours or so, no errors, everything went smoothly, including the install of fresh Windows 7 Professional.

There are no bug, errors, hard drive problems with the computer, I did run checkdisk again, checked the drivers, everything is fine.

I have managed to narrow the issue to Vuze Client, which was freezing the whole system, first after 5-15 minutes, then immediately after opening application. I also tried Deluge and BitLord - same thing, works fine and then starts to freeze the system.

Whenever I view a folder which contains .MP4 (H264) video files in large icon view (shows thumbnails), Windows 7's Explorer crashes. Explorer loads for a few seconds, the green progress bar shows up, and then boom!, Explorer crashes. The thumbnails are not shown before crashing. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I tried setting Folder options to 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' (disables thumbnails) on the same folder with MP4 (H264) video files and Explorer doesn't crash if the MP4 thumbnails aren't shown. I tried testing in other folders containing other video formats (with 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' set to off) like .AVI/Xvid, without an MP4/H264 file, and Windows Explorer shows the thumbnails fine without crashing.

I have not currently experienced problems with other formats, only MP4/H264. The only media players that I have installed are KMPlayer and VLC Media Player which both do not install external codecs, AFAIK. The only external codec I have installed is CoreAVC, but I have been using CoreAVC for months (KMPlayer+CoreAVC is one of the first things I installed in Windows 7) without any problems (this issue just arose a few days ago).

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit.

Note: I prefer a solution that will not end up disabling video thumbnails for MP4 files. I still would like to see MP4 video thumbnails, if possible. If the video files themselves are problematic, I reckon Explorer should not crash and just not show the thumbnails.

This past September (2011), I discovered one day after a series of unexplainable issues with a restored file, that a number of backup copies of large files on external USB-connected NTFS drives differed from the source versions still on my hard drive. I also discovered that I could reproduce the issue with newly-copied files.

Here are the specifics of the issue, following a series of experiments:
- On my system, copies of large files, files typically larger than 500MB, are corrupted (altered) roughly 30% of the time when copying them under Windows 7 64-bit to USB-connected NTFS-formatted external drives.


- No error occurs / no error message appears during the copy



- The file size of copy is always identical, whether or not data was altered during the copy process.



- File differences are confirmed via either the command-line "FC" command or a utility such as WinDiff


- The issue impacts copies made via the Windows GUI -OR- via command-line copy or xcopy


- The issue occurs with multiple external USB NTFS-formatted drives, no matter what make or model.


- Subsequent attempts to copy an affected file will ultimately yield an identical copy. This would seem to rule out interference by an external program such as an anti-virus program (and the only AV I am running is Microsoft Security Essentials)


- The USB drives involved pass error checks, and copies made to these drives on other (non W7) systems produce identical copies

Afternoon, I'm a bit boggled by this issue we are having on a PC at our office.

Constant problem when I open a file/folder - document Word or PDF etc.

Close the file, and then try to delete it, error message
"Folder In Use The action can't be completed because the folder is open in another program"

Any ideas as to what may be causing it?

Using Windows 7 64bit, however this occurs on my other Windows 32bit PC, which are in a Homegroup.

Thanks in advance.

A:Explorer.exe - Locking Files

When copying an .EXE file or a folder containing .EXE files, you may periodically experience the following sharing violation error:

Folder In Use
The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program

After waiting approximately two minutes without retrying, you can click the Try Again button and it will copy successfully. This issue can occur if the Application Experience (AeLookupSvc) service is set to Disabled.

A resolution is to set the Application Experience (AeLookupSvc) service back to the Manual startup type. This allows the OS to dynamically start the service when needed.

Application Compatibility attempts to check if the .EXE file requires any application compatibility shims when it is accessed. This causes the system to obtain a handle to the file. The system queues a lookup request to the Application Experience (AeLookupSvc) service, but since the service is disabled, the request is not serviced in time and Explorer cannot copy the file because it is in use. After two minutes, the queued request to the Application Experience service times out and is dropped, releasing the handle and allowing the copy to proceed.

This issue only occurs when copying with Explorer. Good luck! Hope this helps.

Everytime a file is created in a particular folder it becomes Locked, I have not turned anything on, or changed anything, I even did a system restore to 2 days ago when this behavior wasnt taken place...

I have assigned "Everyone" as permission to these files, but everytim a file is locked.

why has this behavior changed, and how can i leave the file as "NORMAL" meaning no need to assign permission for eveery file that is created! HELP!!

This is typically due to anti-virus, which tries to scan the files. Try disabling your anti-virus and see if it still occurs, if so then maybe try a different anti-virus, or adjust your settings.

A:locking and exporting excel files

Without the converter, no you can not easily open up an excel document in word. The formatting is different - unless you want to write up some code to create a word document from excel...I think your client may have to use Excel. You can protect your workbook from being modified - go to Tools -> Protection. You can set up the workbook to have a password to save changes. If you look up the term 'protection' in Excel's Help you'll be able to find details on how to do what you want to do.

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.

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.;

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?

Define large.

Some e-mail client software allows you break-up large files and then attaches the pieces to individual e-mails messages. The recipients then need their e-mail software to put the pieces back together.

You can also use a service like www.yousendit.com. You upload the file to their server and then you send people a link to download the file.

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.

- 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}

Then reboot Windows.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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.

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 have tried running the launcher as administrator, deactivating my firewalls and re-trying the launcher about 20 times now but nothing works.

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,

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:
hiberfil.sys 6.6GB
pagefil.sys 1.3GB
swapfil.sys 2.6MB

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

Thank you!

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)

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

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)

Hello everyone,

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.)

Thanks a bunch for any input!

A:How do I identify large files on my HDD?

Take a look at WinDirStat. It will show you a graphical view of your entire disk usage and you will be able to see what folders and files are using the most disk space.

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.

,any help greatly appreciated, jake

A:How much ram do I need for large files in excel

You shouldn't need more RAM particularly as you can set aside more disc space for the computer to work with. If you find it really slow upadting the data in your Workbook then it would suggest that you could do with some more.
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.

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).

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?

Along with that, notifying the person trying to get access to the file, who has it open at that time??

I am not sure if this thread should be here in Op/Sys or in where browser problems are found ...

I am running WinXP SP3 on a IBM T40. The browser is FireFox 20.0.1 IE8 is installed but never used. I have recently noticed that I am running out of disk space on C:\ (opsys and programs only on that drive). When I poked around to see what was happening, I noticed that there was 4GB of content in Internet Temp Files in an "IE5" folder. This was surprising because all browsers are set to delete everything (history, cache, ...) on exit. I deleted them all (using CleanUp!). I checked space on C:\ and it was back to where it should be. Several days later the same problem -- 4GB+ of content in the same area.

I run AVG security s/w and manually run Malware Bytes and SpyBot once a week. There is no indication of any malware. The only recent change/install is an update to Firefox 20.x

Any thoughts on what might be going on?
