VirtualDub* - Video capture/processing utility for 32-bit Windows platforms (95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP). It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.

If you're running the Windows 7 RC, chances are good that you're the kind of user that likes to monkey around with settings and tweak your OS. While you can go the DIY route and hack your registry and run your mouse ragged clicking through various control panel screens, there are a number of good, free apps available designed to simplify tweaking.

Pro tip: if you run one of these apps, use their built-in checkpoint creator before committing changes or create a system restore point yourself - just in case something goes awry.

Here are five - go ahead and add your picks in the comments if you don't see your favorite listed!

EnhanceMySe7en (pictured above) - One strike against EM7 is that you must install it. On the plus side, it's 32 and 64-bit (native). On the minus side, it uses 65Mb memory when running. On the plus side, it comes with a free frogurt!

I'm considering using another defrag utility besides Windows defrag.Since according to PC Pitstop:Total Fragmented Files The actual number of files on the disk that are fragmented. Even a freshly defragmented drive may have some fragmented files, particularly if you use the defragmenters that are bundled with Windows. Those versions often cannot defragment swap files or system files, which means they cannot totally defragment the drive.Could any of you all recommend any free ones?

Scarlett, I use DiskeeperLight, which was so good that it is now used by Windows XP. It is faster than the pre-XP Windows defragmenter, and you can run it whilst doing other things. It may or may not defrag each and every file, but because it is easy to use, you will find yourself defragging more often.http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Best/diskeeper-light.htmlCheers,John

Hi TSG... Could you please help with a small problem I am having with an Advent T9004 which has a 'boot reset loop'
I've tried the normal repair tools (<reference to illegal software removed> e.t.c.) but can not repair the system so was going to do a Factory default reset using the EISA recovery partition but therein lies the problem... I have not been given a password and there were no recovery discs or documents available.
Is there a way to reset the password or is there a standard password for EISA partitions on Advent systems. PC World are lazy to get back to me and I don't know where else to look. I've been servicing for a few years now and this is the first time working with Eisa partitions.

I've just acquired a new laptop running XP Professional with a 60 Gig harddrive formatted as a single partition in NTFS. Before there is any data on the drive can I use Disk Management Utilities to turn this single partition into two or three logical drives without affecting the system install? Or do I need to either:

1. Use Ghost to clone the system, then repartition the drive and then put the cloned system back on the new C: partition.

Or, 2. Purchase Partition Magic or similar software to be able to add partitions to previously partitioned drive.

Thanks.

It's not immediately clear what this is for. It isn't just for upgrading to a new o/s .

It has lots of other useful functions.

It consists of Partition Manager (personal edition ), and the Virtualization manager.

Even if you already have the partition manager, it is worth the download for the Virtualization manager.
That includes the Boot Corrector to resolve most common boot problems,
and P2P Adjust Recover the OS startup ability after system migration to a different hardware platform.

Hi all

I've posted this also on the W8 site - since some of you might also want to try out W8 developer edition and find you are missing a driver or two that works fine on your W7 installation.


If you are installing W8 and you are having trouble with drivers --especially things like OEM internal card readers, webcams, Intel chip sets / unknown devices --showing up in your W8 install / device manager try using this FREE utility to back up the W7 existing ones BEFORE you install W8 and then restore those.

It works 99% of the time and avoids those programs I REALLY HATE that work as sneakware --especially those that offer to FIND obscure drivers for you and then require you to PAY to use the application.

This one is 100% free -- it just copies all your exiting drivers to a collection of folders which you can then use to install them again.

DriverBackup! | Free Security & Utilities software downloads at SourceForge.net

won't solve all the probs but should fix 99% of them.

Hi all

another good one is Doubledriver since it also makes the restore easier

http://www.boozet.org/dd.htm

Please don't use those "Find Drivers" SNEAKWARE sites -- they sucker you in and then to do anything useful you have to PAY to register.

I think this is my PET HATE on the web. I can PAY for stuff if I am told in advance -- I don't like the conniving way DRIVERMAX and others like that site operate in the underhand manner they do.

I want to upgrade my laptop to XP Pro (need active desktop for work), and I notice a 4 GB partition called 'EISA Utilities'; anyone know what this is for?

As I am installing a new OS, I don't want to upgrade, just have a clean install (delete partitions and create a new one). I've backed up my drivers, files. And I would like to reclaim as much space as possible.

So, is it safe to delete the EISA Utilities partition? Thanks

Recently I was looking for a way to save an image of my hard drive so that I could restore it ANY time to ANY computer. After setting up so many personal settings and various wallpapers, desktops and all the documents saved on particular subjects, it is a real downer when your system crashes and you have to start reloading from 'scratch'.
Well, the information that I got from the following website, including the free software, has taken care of all my worries. Not only can you save an exact disk image to a hard disk partition, or to a different hard disk drive, but you can save to a USB flash memory stick (which I do all the time). There are also ways to make the USB device bootable.

Hello all,

I've got a 100 gig hard drive divided into a primary C partition and a second logical partition (E drive). (I also have a separate hard drive, which is D, which I use for backups). This is a dual boot system - the C drive has Windows ME on it, which I don't use anymore, and the E drive has Windows XP Pro.

The C drive is FAT 32 and the E drive is NTFS. I'd like to be able to delete all data and programs from the C drive and just leave the ME operating system there, so as to free up as much free space as possible. Then, I'd like to shift the free space from C into the E partition.

I'm not sure if this is possible to do. Can I use Partition Magic to move FAT32 free space into the E partition, which is formatted as NTFS? Can folks tell me if this is possible to do and what steps I need to take, using Partition Magic, in order to accomplish it.

I'd appreciate tips and suggestions! Thanks very much. Please feel free to also e-mail me directly: [email protected]

Dear Group,
 
  I am writing to let you know, perhaps as far back as 2011.. I got three hard
drives with this 'odd' ( ------- ) partition that shows up when I was using
Copy Wipe 1.14. It appears on ALL of the IDE hard drives I have used this
program from a BOOT CD and I am unable to remove, delete (F6) the
mysterious impervious to DEBUG command partition killer. I have
tried the DEBUG subroutine with no effect, and even this computer I am
reporting this also has the similar virus/worm infection. I don't know
if this is the w32.lecna.h or mutant variant. It does show the RECYCLER
and the System Volume Information on both drives. I also notice the
CMDCons on my back up drive D: with my storage stuff.
 
I used Copywipe 1.14 and found this mysterious partition that
can not and will not be removed, and used the program to find
similar instances on my other hard drives. I press F4 to remove and
it won't remove. Oh well.. has anyone found the same instance on
SATA drives and using Windows 7? 
 
I hope there is a cure for this.. I don't want to lose my data and pics.
I wish there is a BOOT CD to purge this w/out losing data.

Hey there:

As far as I remember, I had six partitions when my machine was fresh (I just bought it like 3 months back)
- one for win xp
- one empty (where I would later install Windows 7)
- one where I'd store my documents
- one big empty where I planned to install Linux sometime later
- one big partition where I'd store everything else ('Main' partition)

There was a virus problem with XP - I had AVG installed, and the virus would infect all the exe files on my computr and AVG would simply delete it (the infected exe's) which made matters worse.

Then I installed Win 7 on another partition, and used it for some time without much trouble, except once when I tried some partition manager (so it would be easier when I'd install Linux - for now the Linux plan has been cancelled) when I lost two important partitions somehow (the last two I think, I don't remember exactly). Looking at Disk Management (Computer | Manage | Disk Management), and possibly doing some other things I don't remember I was able to get the partitions back the way they were before (one of them empty).

XP was still there on my PC, I started it once and it damaged the exe files of Win 7 as well. So after a few days I decide to reinstall XP then realised that the drives had disappeared again, this time I wasn't able to recover them. I checked Disk Management, and saw that the two partitions had been merged into one "free space" partition that didn't sh... Read more

I just upgraded one of my systems from Win 7 to Win 10 Pro, and Acronis Disk Director Home 11 stopped working.

I don't want to pay for the upgrade to Disk Director Home 12 because I think that all the key partition management functionality is available for free. And the "OS Selector" multi-boot manager is a true POS.

So what free partition manger do you guys like and recommend?

Thanks.

Hey guys,

Just wondering if there was a good partition manager out there that works through vista and would save me having to boot from a third party app.

I just can't get the Disk management to work in Vista, keep getting the error "There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation".

Even though there is 68Gig free it wont let me creat a new partition of any size.

Thanks.

Hi TommyK,

Vista Disk Management is good, but it is limited to not being able to work when unmovable files like Virtual Page File, Shadow Copy, System Restore, etc... are not allowing the partition to be created.

Other than doing what you want when reinstalling Vista, you will need to use a 3rd party program like Acronis Partition Expert in the Disk Director Suite. You can try a 15 day trial version here:

I have 3 partitions on my Laptop 40GB HDD. These were freshly created and reloaded about a month and half ago:

C: OS -10GB
D: Program Files -10GB
E: My Documents -20GB

in the OS section there is only about 2.2GB free space. OS is XP Pro and about 3.0GB but then theres also programs which seem to work better when in the OS partition as opposed to the Program Files partition. They're consuming the rest of the space.

I've read that XP slows down when it has less than 50% free space. I'd like to know how true this is.
I've also read that having the OS separate from the Programs has few advantages because if you need to reinstall OS programs won't work. I understand this. I'd like to take the space I have on E: drive and put it into C: drive to make it larger or possibly just merge the C: and D: drives. Although just merging these two would still yield around a 50% free space situation.

What are some of your thoughts? What might you do?

I've tried using Acronis Partitioning Trial Software that hasn't worked for me because of the limitations of the Trial Version. Same with Partition Magic 8. I'm afraid to try the Ranish Partition Manager because its DOS based and I'm not familiar or comfortable with that. I also can't justify to pay for the full version of the previously mentioned Programs. Can you please recommend something?

I currently have a 1tb HDD with a 250gb partition with windows 7 and want to increase the size to 475gb. I don't know what type of partitions are currently on the HDD. I also think there is something going on with the way my partitions are set up, but that is something else.

I just need to know a partition editor (preferably free) that I can use on windows 7 for me to see what I have set up and what is being used to boot up my computer first.

When I set the first boot device to my HDD it doesn't boot up properly unless I hit f12 before it boots. So I think its using the wrong partition for boot by default.

Has only fairly recently become available in English.

Free version does not do file recovery and works for mbr partition style ( pro version does both of those as well ).

Have been testing this - it works well - haven't been able to wrong foot it yet.

Converted Primary to logical, shrank a partition into 3. Moved one those across the other and extended an o/s partition backwards into it. It is quick, it aligned all of them properly, and wrote nt6 partition code.Partition recovery works well, too.

It also can make and restore it's own backup images - which it can open and you can copy out individual files.

You can create vhd's and mount most image files - handy if you have made a windows backup image - get individual files out, or make an image of it - then restore the pg image if needed.

Imaging with the free version is by partition/drive, no sceduling or differentials, but it does file level images - great for restoring to a smaller partition.

It comes native x86 and x64 - easy to throw into 64 bit winre.wim.

My XP main partition (C) has been giving me a nuissance problem of late. It is 15 gigs in size. Currently My Computer as well as Disk Manager say I only have 600 MB free. However, when I open C: in explorer, highlight all the files/folders (while showing hidden), right click and select 'properties', the total file size is only 10 gig.

So what and where is the other 4.4 gigs?

I can reallocate space from my other partitions if I have to, but would obviously prefer not to if possible. If anyone knows where this math is not adding up, the help would be appreciated. I didn't know XP was built to add so 'creatively' .

It looks like the partition you are trying to save the data to is labeled as 50 MB RAW and needs to be formatted NTFS for Windows to use it. The simplest thing to do might be to delete that RAW partition and create a new NTFS one. You can follow the steps in the tutorial below if you like.

Other strange thing is that, for example,when i woke up i had 1.06GB free in C:, and now (after ~30 mins) I refreshed to check free space again, and I have only 836 MB. So what happened? How is possible that?

I have to mention that backup files are stored in E:. I have no ideea what is happening here. Where are my 8GB and most important how is possible to have different amount of size in same particion without installing/uninstalling any program.

I have resized C partition on a new (unused) Lenovo laptop, so there is plenty of room for another partition on the system drive.

Q1: Can I install free Macrium on another partition (eg, X) to image C partition ?
Q2: Does macrium image itself if installed on system partition?

Q3: If free Macrium can be run from another partition (not a virtual drive) what format would the macrium partition have to be for the system to access Macrium (or however it works) ?

Q4: To access data or portable apps on another partition what format must those "sibling" partitions be ?

Thank you

A:Can I install free Macrium on another partition other than C

You don't have to install Macrium on a partition other than C in order to make an image of C. I'd install it on C. Why not? My Macrium installation takes up 67 megabytes---1/16 of a GB.

Did you resize C only because you wanted to make space for a partition on which to save Macrium image files?

You DO have to STORE that image file somewhere other than C.

However---it doesn't make much sense to store an image of C anywhere on disc 0.

Why? Because if disc 0 fails, you would lose the image of C and not be able to restore it.

Additionally--an image of C alone won't help you. You need an image of both C and the System_drv partition because the System_drv partition is marked as "system" in your posted picture.

You can make a single image file containing both of those partitions or you can make separate image files of each partition. I'd probably just make a single image file. That file would be about half the size of the occupied space on C.

But store it somewhere other than drive 0--possibly on an external drive.

You could make another partition on disc 0 and store the image file there, but as I said that won't help you if the entire drive fails--which is one of the things you are trying to protect against. Yes, that would be better than nothing.

If it will fit, you might get away with storing it on the Lenovo Recovery partition, but I'd be spooked about that as it might interfere with that partition's operation as a recovery method. And it would still be on disc... Read more

I have a 200 gig partition on 1 drive that I have dedicated for games. But now it is filled, and even after shrinking my C drive to make space, I find that I still cannot extend my games partition. I've done a little reading and it appears that the issue is due to the free space not being directly beside the Games partition. I'm not sure, exactly, all I know is, I want to install more games and this technicality is preventing it.

Another thing that makes the situation more complex is that I have 2 other partitions on my drive that belong to Linux Mint. One is the main Mint partition, the other is a swap partition (similar to the page/swap file in Windows). I'm hesitant to try to mess around with moving those partitions since I'm not very experienced with Linux and if it doesnt boot I know I'll just reinstall it instead of trying to fix it. But I would like to avoid that in the first place.

I have tried with Disk Management, EaseUS, Paragon, Partition Wizard and GParted in Linux but they all wont let me make the games partition bigger, only smaller.

I am running Windows XP Pro, the NTFS file system, and I set up my system so I sent up my primary 30 GB hard drive with several partitions so that my windows swap file is on a separate partition (K:) than is my OS (C:).

I recently wanted to defrag this separate drive (K:) (partition) so I went into my virtual memory settings for my windows swap file and I selected "No swap (or page) file" and then asked windows to defrag the drive that my swap file exists on. I then went to defrag the drive.

Instead of defragging, I receive a warning that asks me to free up space on the drive in order that defrag can run. So (using Acronis PArtition Expert) I increased the size of the drive (partition) to 800mb (via the Acronis partition formatting & resizing tools) and ran the windows xp defrag immediately. At this point, after the reformatting, you would think that no data existed on the drive (K:)

However...

My latest defrag report for drive (K:) says:

Volume XP Pro SWAP FILE (K:)
Volume size = 800 MB

1. You need something like 12% or 15% free space to defrag....looks like you increased it so you have 25% free space.

2. You increased the size of the partition or did you reformat? If you reformatted you wouldn't need to increase the size anyway because you would have 100% free space. Looks like all you did was increase the size and didn't reformat. Defragging does not remove any files...it arranges them so they can be found more readily.

Hi,

I just got a new PC with following configuration and have made 9 partitions on my 500 GB hard disk and

have 2nd 500 GB HDD as slave with 2 partitions, one has Win -7 Ultimate & 2nd partition is where I store Movies & Video Files.

The OS Partition is 100Gb & I have installed all applications in OS Partion.

All the applications with Win -7 Ultimate 64 bit has taken up 50 GB space.

I do download some stuff everyday & it goes in Downloads folder & takes up upto 25 GB of space.

Thus I am left with 25 GB free space.

In order to have a lightening fast performance, how much free space should I leave in the OS Partitions ?

Here are the specs of my system :

Intel Core i-7 2600 Sandy Bridge ( 3.4 GHz ) Processor


8 GB DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz

Windows -7 Ultimate ( 64 bit )

500 GB Sata 3.0Gb/s HDD

Second 500 GB HDD which I am using as a slave drive to store Movies etc.

Creative PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi? Xtreme Audio

HauppaugeŽ WinTV-HVR-1200 Hybrid Analog/Digital TV Tuner


1 GB NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ GT420 as default video card.

Thank You.
 

A:How much free space should I leave on OS partition?

You need to leave room on your HDD for your virtual memory/pagefile/swap file. The recommendations on the size range from 2GB to 1.5x your installed memory. It really depends on the type of user you are and if you want room for full memory dumps in the event of crashes and BSOD's. Can I ask why you made 9 separate partitions? just curious.

As said in the title, I can not delete the free space partition on my external hard drive after deleting the partition. Currently, I'm using Disk Management and I haven't tried other programs. Any ideas? Would a different program do the job?

And to be specific, when I right-click on the free space, "Delete Partition" is grayed out.

A:Can't delete free space partition

I ran into that problem once myself. The way I solved it is to define a new partition in that free space and start anew with the deletion process. Else you can also try BEST FREE Partition Manager Software for Windows supports all 32-bit & 64 bit Windows No-server OS.. It will probably do it wiith no sweat.

What application should i use to consolidate free space on one partition? The rule is i have to have free space on the begining of the partition - not on the end of it.

A:How consolidate free space on the begining of the partition?

Hey guys, I'm looking to be edumacated about this, forgive me if I ask dumb questions (which I will)

Running Win 7 Home Prem SP1 x64, on Gateway NV59C notebook, OEM version came pre-installed with SP 0, hence no installation DVD, but I do have all the recovery DVD's (3 system, 1 drivers & OEM crapware & 1 system repair) burned w/ Win 7's native disc burner...which I haven't used. I have used the recovery partition to restore to factory cond twice since I bought the laptop in Sept '10...once when I bought it (it was a floor model @ Radio Shack) and once in Feb when my first attempt @ installing SP1 went wrong, and on both occasions I am SURE the recovery partition only had about 2gb free space.

What I'm concerned with is that if something goes wrong and I need to restore to factory again (since I don't have a re-install DVD, nor do I have nor can I afford another HDD to make & store backup images) and the recovery partition is "empty" or corrupt, AND the DVD's I burned with WinDOZE' native burner fail. I have no backup to reinstall the OS.

My question is, how do I verify if there's anything in the recovery partition, since Disk Mgmt show 100% free space? And if it is (empty or corrupt), is there a way to repair it? I ran chkdsk /r yesterday, came back clean as a whistle. Disk Mgmt png & chkdsk.txt log attached below.

Thanks,
Thug

Hello folks,

I am having a problem where windows system image backup fails because there is not enough free space in the 100MB system reserved partition.

The story is as follows:
Initially there is a 1.5TB hard drive with 100MB system partition and rest is c:
I installed an SSD and used Samsung's migration assistant to copy the os to the SSD.
The original hard drive still has the system reserved partition with 70% free, and the old windows partition.

The new SSD has a 100 MB partition also, except that it is named "data", and only has 7MB free space. I assigned a drive letter to it to look inside, and I can only see the boot dir of 13.9MB, recycle bin (empty), bootmgr, and "system volume information", which is 48KB.

I also did the thing to delete the USN journal, and it only cleared up 2MB. What is taking up this other space?

PS This is on my Dad's compute with W7 pro
