Preferred Solution: document to disk

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: document to disk

I wouldn't be surprised if your floppy drive has gone bad. The quality of floppy drives has gone down over the years due to the fact that fewer systems need them. Since floppy disks have always been unreliable and limited in storage capacity, many new computers don't even come with them any more. I've replaced the floppy drive in my computer 3 times in the last 2 years. The only reason I still have one is to run DOS based programs on my Windows 2000 system.

I am looking for a Microsoft technical document that deals with the processes around disk Initialization; Partitioning and Formatting in a Windows XP environment using the built-in Windows tools.

The type of document that I am looking for should explain in technical detail the exact processes that are involved when the above procedures are run.

If any Forum member has a link to such a document I would be grateful if they would post it in this thread.

I recently did a install/repair to my xp pro. It worked ok except for I keep
"insert the 'document viewer' disk" use source 1,
there is nothing in the event log about any install errors, I installed the
windows install
cleanup but to use that you have to know which app to clean up and I can't
out which app win thinks is a problem. The app in question must be held
otherwise how would the installer get fired?
any ideas where this elusive information is?

I wrote this thread in "performance and maintenance section" so I had to create another one here. Sorry.

I have a text file on my portable hard disk (WD 250 GB) named urgenttttttttttt.txt
you would have already assumed how important this file would be and it is updated daily. The size of the file is 545 kb which is HUGE for a notepad. I opened the file 3 days ago and it gives me an error:

"cannot open the K:\Mainnnnnnnnnnn\usb\urgenttttttttttt.txt file
make sure a disk is in the drive you specified"

There are many text documents in my hard disk and many even in the same folder but every document is fine but there is a problem in this particular file. I recovered this file using shadow explorer but the recovered file is 518kb in size and many new things i wrote in the notepad are GONE. I have some private text in the document or i would have uploaded it on some site for you. I am unable to copy or move this file to other folders.

There is another error related to this, I deleted an iso file that was in the same portable hard disk by mistake (even from recycle bin) and tried to recover it using "disk digger" (best recovery software for huge files!!). But I get an error which I have never seen before..

"There was an error while reading from the disk: Data error (Cyclic Redundancy error). How would you like to proceed" and no option works out.

Answer:Text document error: make sure a disk is in the drive you specified

I assume that you were trying to read the file directly from the external drive. What happens if you copy the file to an internal drive first? If Explorer won't let you copy, try dropping to a command prompt (Win+R, run cmd.exe) and running "xcopy K:\Mainnnnnnnnnnn\usb\urgenttttttttttt.txt c:\ /C". Replace c:\ with another destination if you wish. The /C switch tells it to ignore errors.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open. I must now open a new empty document to write in. What I want to happen:1. Open new document2. Open old document3. Both new and old document are open (2 windows).Other notes in no particular order:- Word has always operated like this. Just wondering if there is a way to stop it.- I am not using the "Open" function in Word to open the older file, I am opening the older file by double-clicking it in the File explorer. When I use the "Open" function in Word, it does the same (basically "closing" the new file in order to open the old one). - I tried searching through Word's settings but couldn't find anything that seemed to relate to this behavior.- As per regular Word behavior, the new document is auto-na...

Yes, you are right. That is normal for MS Word.Do this:Open a new document. Type something. Even a single space. Save it with a name you want. Now open an older document. Both documents can be on the screen or cascaded.If memory is not an issue, you can haven two instances of Word.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?


Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used.

I'm using word 2010.
I have a Mailmerge document (actually a company letter with header and footer, used by a package called "Cash4Windows" [C4W]). This document usually has the recipients name and address etc. inserted by C4W.
The document is a template - "xxx.dotx".
What I want to do is strip out the Mailmerge fields and save the document as a normal Word 2010 document, 'cos the User wants to have a blank standard company document available.
I've spent a long time fiddling with the Header and Footer to get just what the User wanted, and I know i could just cut-n-paste the Header and Footer into a new document, then save it as "xxx.docx", but when I looked on various help sites the normal method in Word 2010 seems to be

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help".

Answer:Word Document within another document

The only simple way is to go to Insert, Object, Create from file and choose to insert your file as a link (these are 2003 instructions - would be similar in 2007, though.) However, you will then get a questions about the file having links and do you want to update...every time you open the file.
You could also just insert some text and hyperlink it to the other file.
Finally, someone could probably write some VBA that would insert the file and update it every time you opened it.

I have a Sony Vaiol laptop and am  running vista.  I haven't used it for a lot other than internet, so data limited and space is problem started suddenly when i turned on pc and a black screen with the error message,"disk read error, press cntrl+alt+del to continuie."didnt do it! Wouldnt do anyuthing.Finally, I acquired legal sony recovery disks. And when the screen to choose operating system comes up, there is none so it says apply drivers and im lost, I have no familiarity with hard disk drivers so....but did bring up command prompt in recovery and through luck and lil else, i happened on chkdsk and found it to all check out but it does say NTFS not fat 32, but found no problems. Now Im dumb completely!!! Help if you can.

Answer:hard disk`??? wont reboot even with recovery disk yet all disk checks say fine.

Sony Vaiol laptop.Has problems of its own. It is not piratical to give you guidelines on this laptop. There have been many issues about how to repair and maintain it. The recovery discs should have everything you need.Here is a bit of advice, not really my own, try to sell the unit to somebody that thinks they know how to fix it. Then go buy a new or used laptop that will suit hour needs.The cost of ownership of any laptop is higher that many new users expect. Some more than others.This  may sound like a rant to put down Sony. It is not. Sony has made their own bed of nails. Look at this article from last year:Sony Vaio Laptop Recall: Everything You Need To KnowRead the article. You decide.

I'm creating a document in word 2007 at one point of the document I want to insert a link or icon that points to a separate word document, when the master document is saved both documents are saved as one file so that i can distribute it to other people not linked on a LAN. I don't need the second document to be seen but launched on a separate window when the link or icon is clicked.
Can somebody please help I've seen this on emails and PP presentations but I'm not sure if it can be done in word, I would think so!

Not hard at all. Open the attached - I have included the instructions to show either the other text (or at least part) or just the icon.

I have a client with a problem creating new documents from the File > New > Word Document dropdown from Windows Explorer window. If I set her default font to Times New Roman it will stay for creating new documents from within Word. If she goes the other route mentioned above to create a new document it will always default to Courier. Also when she tries to save the document with the Save As item it defaults to txt instead of a .doc file. I am thinking there are two different templates for these two seperate ways of opening or creating a document.

Greetings Geeks -

I am almost home getting my computer up and running again. The last step is to force Windows 10 to recognize my secondary SATA drive through Disk Manager. I spent a few minutes poking around disk manager and it seemed to me that disk manager wants to format when the disk is recognized. Is this the case? Can I add the drive without losing the information? The drive has data on it that I would like to keep. I am going to give it another try this evening.

The setup drive in question is a Western Digital 1TB hard. Thank you for any help.

Answer:how to move data from disk D to disk E and from disk E to disk D

Hello pvnam95 and welcome to Seven Forums.

The easiest way is probably "drag and drop". Open each disk in a separate window and drag the data from one disk to the other.

4 Ways to Transfer Data Between Two Hard Drives - wikiHow

But it really depends on what kinds of drives you have (internal, external, spinner, solid state) and the type of data you're trying to move (large movies, small documents, encrypted, the operating system, etc.) Could you provide a screenshot of your Disk Management? And also fill in your System Specs.

Hi there,

I bought a used laptop. I checked it carefully and sure that there was 300Gb Dik C and 500Gb Disk D.

But after a day, Disk D suddenly went missing. I checked the Disk Management and use other partition software but Disk D (w 500Gb) cannot be found.

I tried partition recovery and perhaps i might recover the 500gb in Disk C but no success.

I checked the files in Disk C and noticed a certain file with "ss" as a name and icon like a disk. "ss" format as I check is in Disk Image File.
And to my surprise, the files originally in Disk D is here in "ss"

After several tries, I figured out that in order to unhide Disk D, I have to open "ss" inside Disk C. Everytime I shut down my laptop and opened it, Disk D is missing. Then I have to click the file "ss" again in Disk C to unhide Disk D.

Though annoying, somehow it solves the problem.

However I realized that my Disk D w/c have 500gb would only saved the files in Disk C "ss" file. Meaning if I only have 50Gb files in Disk D, only that 50 Gb will be saved in "ss" file.

Has anyone encountered this problem? There are no other problems in my laptop except that Disk D file is missing. Can someone help what to do to make Disk D appear as it is? My friend told me to just reformat my laptop but it might ruin my disks. I'm currently using Windows 8.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Disk D Missing/ Disk D Saved File is in Disk C

I agree with your friend. Do a clean reinstall of Windows and get a fresh start with that laptop.
Using a laptop that still contains all the debris and issues from its previous owner is not what you want to do.

What's the brand name and model name and complete model number of that laptop?

My company's computer needs to be patitioned and reformat. The system is still working well. I mean, nothing wrong with anything (weird huh?). Ok the hard disk just need to be 'split'. I mean, make drive C & D on the hard disk. I know how to do that... easy... Then the HD need to be formatted & reinstall windows XP. Ok, easy too..

But the main problem occured before I do anything (partition & format). I have my own bootable CD that I usually use for partitioning & formatting.

Ok, i insert the CD & restart.
I went to BIOS & changed the boot order (1st boot: CD-ROM, 2nd: HDD-0 & 3rd: Floppy). Then restart again.
Ok the bootable CD is excellently loaded.
I typed fdisk, then came the first problem. it says something like 'no fixed disk'. I exit fdisk.
Then I typed format c:, 2nd problem occured. it says something like, 'invalid drive'.
I forgot the error message because the pc is in my office right now. I'm currently at home 'begging for help' So the error message is not accurate. sorry..

I think, if I run the CD, the hard disk will not be loaded (or should I say, hard disk failure). & If I take off the CD & restart again, change the BIOS (1st boot: HDD-0) then windows will load! Weird right?

I don't think my CD is 'corrupted' nor broken because I tried to run the CD from another PC. Yes, I can access the C drive from that PC.

Answer:Can't format hard-disk nor do partition when using boot disk. Hard-disk failure

It sounds like it might be the bootable CD you've created is not picking up the HDD's/partitions.
To eliminate this as a posibility travel to bootdisk and grab the WinME bootdisk and boot from there. If it picks up the HDD you can FDISK and Format from there.
The other option is to boot using the XP CD and let it handle the formatting/partitioning duties...

I got a new Acer computer (with Windows 7) which had 1 TB hdd. In the hdd there were C- (~500 GB), D (~500 GB)-drives and this "hidden" partition (~13,6 GB) which is somekind acer back-up partition (at least I've heard so) and this system reserved partition (~100 MB, not sure what this partion is). Atleast I think the disk was partioned this way.

I decided to reduce C-drive with Windows 7 disk managament tool and it said that I could release around 250 GB from that drive which I did. Everything was fine until I tried to make new drive from the released ununsed space and I managed to convert my disk to dynamic disk. Here is a snapshot from my system after that. I think conversion to dynamic disk created a small partition (1 MT) in the beginnig of the list (not sure). Disk 1 is just old hdd which is working fine so no concerns in there. E-drive is the one I created and accidentally converted disk to dynamic disk.

Then I studied and found way to convert dynamic disk back to basic disk from here and here.

I used ptedit32 (which did the same thing as HxD mentioned in the links). Here is snapshot from my disk (with HxD) before I did the conversion back to basic disk showing to 42 in the bottom of 02 column. Then I used ptedit32 and changed these two values to 07. After reboot everything was working fine and disk was converted back to basic disk. But now there was ~600 GB unused space on the disk (here's the snapshot from disk managament ). Now disk man...

Find the 'My Documents' folder on your computer, from 'Find' or in Windows Explorer, create a shortcut (right click on the folder) and drag this to the Desktop.

Hi there:

everytime I open up Word, the same document opens up automatically.

When I click on the "New Blank Document" button in the tool bar, the same document opens up.

Any suggestions?

Answer:Cannot get rid of a Word document

Reboot in safe mode, and delete That's the template for the blank document. Apparently, your document was saved as a .dot instead of a .doc and corrupted the blank new document.

I have a question.

Lets say you are going to download something from the internet, it doesn't matter what. When you click on the link a dialog box comes up with the location where you would like to save it. For example the location always comes up as "My Documents" as the save location by default.

Is there a way to change that ? so When it opens it goes to the location that you have specified.


Answer:When you save a document -

To specify the default download directory for the Internet Explorer

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer
Add a String value called Download Directory
For it's value, enter in the Directory where you want your downloaded files to go

hope that helps...

After creating a Word or Excel document, there is an option to send the document to a mail recipient. In my old Windows 98 PC, my Yahoo Mail account would open and I could send the document through Yahoo. I liked this feature.

With my new XP however, when I choose to send a document, OUTLOOK opens up, not my Yahoo account. What settings must be changed so that I can send out a document ?

i am trying to take a word resume and cover letter and paste it on to a specific area on an internet explorer page. i can,t figure it out and i don't know what i am doing wrong. please help.
thanks for the replies but i forgot to mention my edit selection on the web page does not let me choose cut copy or paste. i am so confused. this should be so simple.


Answer:trying to paste a document

I assume you are trying to cut and paste it into an online form.

Open the word doc

Click on edit
Click select all
Click copy

Open up the web page and click on the form box
Make sure that the cursor is blinking in the box
Click edit
Click paste

This should paste the word doc into the box.

Question: Document Viewer

Hi: am getting a darn notice about a document viewer, Microsoft.NET framework notice and Windows Installer. Cannot get rid of any of them..Help!!!

Answer:Document Viewer

hi, do you have an HP printer? I think document viewer could be related to that. If so and you have the disk that came with the printer, try deleting the printer software (see if there is anything in Add/Remove Programs and also if document viewer is installed in the start up folder), and download from the disk again, or try the HP web site where there should be links to drivers etc.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to scan a document so that I can email it. Unfortunately the OCR doesn't recognize some characters (hand written) and it replaces it with jibberish. Is there any way to turn off ocr. Also my MS outlook doesn't want to email my messages and I can't figure out why. Do you have any ideas to fix this prob? Thanks

Answer:Scanning a document

OCR programs can be a bit hit and miss.

Can you not just scan the document in as a picture file, .jpg or .bmp etc and send that.

You should have a software control panel for your scanner, to switch between OCR and
other means of 'capture'.

It's not helpful if you want the recipient to 'amend' your document, but is a method to get
the information across, if that's all you want to do.

My Outlook, (which is 2003), has a 'Detect and Repair' option in the Help menu.

What is your version and what error messages do you get (if any), when you
try to send.

btw, When did you last run scans for malware and spyware?
