moving large number of large files to new drive

Q: moving large number of large files to new drive

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.

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 119gig .bkf file on my desktop and I'm trying to move it to a new 320gig external HD. I keep getting a message there's not enough space on the disk. If I reformat the external HD from FAT to NTFS would that work or do I have start the backup utility and save to the external HD? The .bkf file on my desk top took almost 8 hours to create. Don't want to do it again if I don't have to. Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated. Thanks for your time!

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?

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

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.

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.

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 have a Dell Dimension 4600 running XP. I also have a Seagate 250 gig external hard drive where I keep music, photo, and movie files. Lately, I began to get delayed write errors when copying/moving files from the c drive to my external (g) drive. I looked online for some fixes, went into the properties of both drives, and disabled the cache (whatever that means!). Now, I'm not getting the delayed write errors, but the moving/copying of large files is taking much longer that it was before. Copying a 1 gig folder will now take up to 5 minutes, when before any of these issues started, it used to take a few seconds. I did a chkdsk of the external drive and the issue continues.

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.

*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.

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.

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?

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.

A:Cannot move large files into External Drive

Is your external drive formatted in FAT32 by chance? If so then that would be why small files work and large ones do not, with FAT32 the file size is limited to just under 4GB.

You'd need to reformat or convert the file system to NTFS on the external drive to allow it to store files 4GB and larger.

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

Here's the story. I got an external drive today for my laptop and I'm backing up a lot of files and stuff. But this one file(an ISO that's 5.59GBs large) is too large to copy to the external drive(I guess Windows don't like copying large files. Why? I don't know).

I tried zipping the file into a compressed folder but it only made the file a little large than 5.10GBs, which was still too large to copy. So then, I used WinRAR to "compress and email"(I didn't see a compression option without the emailing option so I just did it). After 4 full hours of compressing, it went to my email and all that so I just emailed myself. NOTHING was in there. So then, I looked in the destination folder where I put the compressed file and it wasn't there. Then, I searched for it and found it in a temp folder. So, I dragged it into another folder and it turned into a shortcut for the original file and the 5GBs that I lost during the compressing process didn't return(I deleted my temps and still, no 5GBs).

So, as a result, not only did I NOT get the file on my external drive but I also lost 5GBs on my laptop. What can I do?

Hi all,
I have an HP Spectre laptop. I work in television and have to transfer very large files (70-100gb each). When a drive containing those files are connected, the system will hang - sometimes for a short time, sometimes it requires a hard boot. Not sure what is causing this, but it makes my system completely unusable and makes Win10 useless at my work.

I have tried checking the ALWAYS SHOW ICONS, NEVER THUMBNAILS box in folder options and it doesn't really seem to make a difference.

The first time I had the problem, I was dealing with DNxHD video files. Now I am working with ProRes 422 files and it seems to be even worse.

I know it is not the external device, because it happens on all external drives.

I use ex-FAT formatted flash drives, Mac formatted hard drives (and use Mac Drive to access them) and both have the same issue.

Any thoughts or fixes?

Thank you!

This is new territory for me.

I am trying to save two ISO files (Win7 Pro 32bit + 64bit, ex Digital River) from my C: drive (laptop spinner) to a new USB2 thumb-drive. (Laptop does not have USB3).

The two ISOs are about 2.5gb each, which 70% filled the 8gb thumb drive.
I simply did not think about the size of the ISO files and the thumb-drive capacity.

Copying from the internal drive to the USB2 thumb drive took about 22 minutes.
Speed was ?4MB/s, via a mains-powered hub.
Not having a clue about "transfer" times/speeds, I am wondering if the 4mb/s is reasonable ?

AS a bargain hunter I bought a few "cheap" sticks, the red-all-plastic-ones. But just now I discovered they are all USB2. (Which is irrelevant on this laptop, but is a let-down for my USB3 rigs (comments?)
It now makes sense to load the ISOs onto separate DVDs, ready for use.
What type of DVD should I use to load the ISOs onto ?

An old thread-post USB Transfer rate ~~ suggests changing the BIOS USB speed to high-speed instead of full-speed. The thread is directed at USB3 ... just wondering if such a tweak is applicable to USB2 ? If so ... how would I do that. ?

Is there any point to using third-party file copier programs ?

A:Copying large files from C: to USB2 thumb drive

I get about 1 GB every 20 minutes through a USB 2.0 port; that's about .8 MB per second; average file size 260k. This is to a cheap USB 2.0 stick.

If I change to a cheap USB 3.0 stick through a USB 3.0 port, I get about 5 times as much speed---about 4 minutes per GB or 4 MB per second. Same average file size

Large files tend to copy faster than small files. You're copying very large files and getting 4 mbs onto a cheap USB drive similar to mine. I'm only getting .8 for small files.

I'd say you are doing OK considering your USB is 2.0 and cheap.

You should be able to get much better performance if you step up to USB 3.0.

I wouldn't expect much improvement with file-copy programs, but might experiment if I was doing this job constantly and saving time was critical.

I don't know anything about the BIOS tweaks, but you could experiment.

I'd think even a slowish USB drive would be preferable to DVD, reliability issues aside.

Whenever I try to transfer several large files (pretty much anything above 600 MB) at once from the hard drive to any computer, the hard drive will automatically disconnect and reconnect during the operation. A message will pop up saying "The file is no longer on the hard drive" even though it's still there, and it asks me to retry, skip, or cancel. But every time I press retry, the message keeps popping up and I have to skip the file, thus ruining the whole operation. Ironically, the hard drive doesn't do this when I transfer several large files at once from a computer to the hard drive, so now it feels like the hard drive's holding my stuff hostage.

A lot of the aforementioned large files are important to me, and I need to transfer them from drive to drive, so I need help in fixing this. Any suggestions?

Do you think it could be the USB cable that came with the hard drive? Because it's been bent back and forth numerous times, and that's probably disrupting the connection...
 

A:External Hard Drive holding large files hostage

It's quite possible. Also, it could be that the hard drive is wearing out and might be giving some errors.

Either way, I would highly recommend transferring the files to a new hard drive before the unthinkable happens. You can usually remove the drive from the external casing and connect it directly to your desktop. If you're unfamiliar with installing a hard drive, I would suggest some assistance from a tech.

Hi,

I recently upgraded some components on my computer, including the motherboard & graphics card, and took the processor, hard drive & RAM from my old one. This includes my main HDD, another 750GB SATA HDD that I had working perfectly in the old machine, and a formerly external 750GB IDE HDD that also now works fine internally.

The problem is with the 750GB SATA HDD, which is alright when copying small files (though it can cause mp3 playback to skip a little), but anything over 1GB - DVD iso files, etc, causes Windows Vista to crash completely and force me to manually reboot.

Having tried both Windows 64 bit & 32 bit on my new machine, it happens on both, yet both of the other hard drives seem to be working fine with large files - so it doesn't appear to be a RAM problem.

The friend who put it all together suggested that it could have been caused by using the old SATA cable (as the one shipped with the motherboard had right-angled plugs, and wouldn't fit correctly). Does this make sense, and would fitting a new cable solve the problem?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give, and do let me know if there's any other information you need.

I have a 1.5tb usb3.0 drive that I cannot copy larger files to - I get a 0x0000045D - I/O Device error - whenever I try to copy larger sized files - 7GB files or more.  It works fine with smaller files.  I have tried copying with regular "copy", terracopy and robocopy methods.  I have removed the USB device, uninstalled the driver, rebooted and then hooked it back up - no go.  I have removed the device with deleting the driver, rebooted and that didn't fix it.  I have tried it on another USB 3.0 port, no go.  Tried it on a usb2.0, no go.

My grandchild was playing a shooting game, when suddenly the picture when sideways and there was large lettering.

I was able to upright the lettering, but still have the large lettering on the font.

I tryto get into a folder or program, but the large lettering prevents acessing all the information.

I was able to play TW08 golf game with no problems, but when I finished and returned to windows large lettering still there.

Have tried to find somewhere to reduce the size to normal, but unsuccessful.

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;
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);
t.push_back(8); t.push_back(1);

normalization(t);

Any help would greatly be appreciated...I spent alot of time already on this and getting frustrated...

Thanks

Hi

i have a R50e thinkpad and i recently bought an external 500Gb hard drive

there isn't a problem with transferring small files up to 5 Gb, but i encounter a problem with files close to that size or above it:

it says that there isn't enough space in the terget drive, when there is clearly enough...

i have about 380 Gb of free space in that drive

is it a problem in my usb or in the drive?
 

A:transfering large files to external hard drive doesnt work????

What's the file system of the external drive? Click on it in (My) Computer, and check there. If it's FAT32, that's a natural thing to happen. Either try to format it NTFS (will propably slow it down, if even possible), or use an archiver, WinRAR for example, to split your large files into 2-3 GB part archives.

Hi all - I have this strange problem that I can't seem to trace the root cause of; I have a number of 4.4Gb MKV files which I drag & drop from my Vista PC to a portable USB2.0 hard drive.

The copy appears to go ok i.e. takes a few minutes and then when I try to playback the file on the same or other PC with the USB2.0 drive connected, the file is corrupted (display goes blocky within a minute and various playback programs will stop playing the file).

Both source and destination drives are NTFS and have been working correctly until sometime in July. I have tried changing the USB2.0 drive policy to disable write caching, reformatting the USB2.0 drive in Vista (it was originally formatted on XP) and have run various diagnostics and can't see any errors on either the RAID5 volume (where playback is fine) or on the external disc drive.

I have no error messages or warnings that are untoward in the event logs and no error messages are displayed.

I have Vista SP1 and all current security updates and patches installed. My motherboard drivers are upto date. The system is a Foxconn G965 board with Core2 Duo E6400 and 2Gb RAM, Intel RAID and a Marvell Yukon NIC. No overclocking has been done. I have avast4 installed for anti-virus.

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.

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!

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!!!

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

Hi there, I have a failing hard drive that I'm trying to recover data off of, only problem is I guess there are bad sectors or corrupt files because every now and again I get a 'can not read source file from disk' and have to skip the file. Which is fine. However; this does mean that I can't just leave it and come back later because any files that can't be read are going to interrupt the process. I'm wondering if there's a program that can simply automate this for me. I'm trying teracopy as I type this but it's been stuck on the same file for the past ten minutes and I'm not sure if it will skip the file after so long or not and the skip button its self hasn't allowed me to skip the file. I'm trying to copy about 300GB of saved data so it would be really nice if I didn't have to monitor the movement of it.

Hello,
Lately I have been using a program called Xfire to record some gaming clips. The uncompressed files are pretty large (60gb/40 mins of gameplay). After I delete a file, there seems to be less space on my hard drive. For instance, yesterday I recorded and then deleted a clip, and I noticed I had 1gb less space on hard drive afterwards. I emptied the recycle bin, used the disk cleanup utility and did a defrag, but the 1gb was still missing.

Can anyone help me find the root of this problem?

Much appreciated,

Hadley

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

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.

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.

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



It is possible that some application which makes use of this service fails to properly relinquish its resources (quoted section highlighted in red), a bit like a memory leak.

I've been using the RTM version of Windows 7 Enterprise through my companies gold partnership msdn program. So far I'm really impressed, a great improvement on VISTA.

However a problem I used to get with VISTA, which was solveable, now haunts windows 7. That is Vista used to spend a lot of time trying to preview AVI files, stoping you from renaming, moving or deleting them. The fix I had with vista:-

ECHO Un-Registering shmedia.dll...
REM Remove Media (e.g. AVI) preview, type and hit enter
regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\shmedia.dll

However this doesn't work with Windows 7. I don't want to disable all previews, just the video files, mainly AVI. Any ideas?

Also on the new Windows 7 toolbar, I don't like how much extra space the notification icons take up (e.g. the ones near the clock), there all really spaced out. Anyway this can be changed? On vista and XP if I have a double height taskbar, you get three rows of notification icons. Now you just get two, even with the new larger windows 7 taskbar. I've hidden just about as many as I can, but still takes up 1/3 of my task bar.

A:Windows 7 Problem moving / deleting large AVI's

I don't have a solution for your problem, but I'd just like to remark Windows 7 has quite a few glitches when it comes to video and multimedia. Among the other ones I've noticed, thumbnails previews are EXTREMELY inconsistent. Some work, some don't. That is with videos playable by WMP. And even with the same codec, some work some don't. Also there's still things to be ironed out with MOV files support.

I use OE 6 on an XP Pro platform, and I need to move a large block of business emails from one OE folder to another. There are roughly 8,000 emails in this folder, and I need to move half to a new folder so they will compact properly.

Is there a FAST WAY to "Select" or highlight 4,000 out of 8,000 emails? It would take hours to hold down the Ctrl key and individually click all 4,000. Using Edit>Select All will not accomplish what I need. In a regular Windows folder, one can hold the Ctrl key and drag the cursor beside a long list of files to select them. Is there any way to do something similar inside an OE folder? Thanks.

Hi,
This must be a chore for you guys. :-)

I am running Windows on an MSI 7360 Motherboard under the latset BIOS (1.A0) I have 2 Western Digital HDDS. (250Gbyte)

Everything runs fine for weeks on end. I can play some pretty intensive games (Far Cry 2, Civ 5 etc) no problems.
However, as soon as I try and transfer a large file from one HDD to another (either between the two HDD's above or to and from an external Maxtor drive I have) I get a BSOD.

Generally it is a 0x124, but there are some others mixed in.

For example. I downloaded the client for Lord of the Rings online onto one drive and installed it from the client download onto the other drive.
I got a BSOD.
So I thought I would install it on the same drive the download was on - again I got BSOD.
Sometimes when I am downloading large updates (generally 1 gig plus) at some point I will get a crash.

I downloaded Seagate HDD tester and ran the long test through DOS on both drives (3 hours in total) NO errors reported. I ran Memtest86 for 6 hours sold , 4 hours generic then individually on each stick of RAM with no errors reported.

I reformatted the HDD's and re-installed Windows 7 - but the errors continued when I tested.

I'm beginning to think it's my motherboard - a dry joint problem. I don't want it to be that as that's major work (I might as well get new CPU and memory if I replace mobo)

I've tried rebuilding the icon cache database several times, tried sfc /scannow, tried chkdsk, tried uninstalling any recent updates, etc... There have been no hardware changes, the hard drive has been tested as good (no bad sectors), her dual monitors are at a sane resolution, and I'm confident that the viruses has been removed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have sent video clips before without any problem, for example funny commercial clips that others have sent me. This is a short video clip that a friend shot from his digital camera and put on a CD that I then saved on my hard drive. It plays fine on my computer so I can't figure out why I can't send it as an attachment on the e-mail. Can anyone help, hopefully with step by step instructions? Thanks in advance.

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

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)

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

This is error message I get (copying 4gb to a drive with 122gb free)

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

Thankyou

for some reason i cannot transfer large files (700MB to over 1GB) from a Windows Server 2008 R2 Essentials box to a Windows 7 Pro client.  It just doesn't work; it hangs.  When I try to upload to the server the file copies to 99% with 5 seconds left then hangs for a while then says the file transfer failed.
 
any ideas as to what could cause this.  just to mention, small files transfer fine ( up to 10MB or so).

Whats the network speed like IE(Switches and routers and the NIC on server && PC), sounds like a flood or a disconnect comamdn is beign sent befopre its finished.
I know Windows 7 when it first came out had really bad issues with copy files over a network, i can remember seeing 500 meg appear to take 3 years 4 months and 7 hours!

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.

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

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.

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?

Regards

Say I have a ton of files on dvds and I want to get them all on my USB HD but each file takes like 10 minutes to copy over. Is there a program or way that I can que up a list of files from the DVD and have it copy over 1 file at a time to the USB HD? Thanks

happy hadookens!
 

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).

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.

Hi,

I looked on the forum before hand and couldnt quite find my problem on here. I recently reformatted my computer, updated etc. I never had problems downloading from storage sites before. Even after the recent reformat. Somthing I did must be interferring with my ability to download large files though.

I can still download small files like 5 mb, but files like 520 mb just keep loading forever and never start in my mozilla download window. If I try saving the link as it works but saves as like 536 bytes.

Ive tried shutting my firewall off, virus protection, but nothing has worked. I'd really rather not reformat AGAIN lol.

Thanks for the help.
