Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

Question: Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

I have many volumes and on each of them there is a recycle bin. Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume? For example if reserve space for Recycle Bin on this volume is over. Or each Recycle bin is only for it's volume?

Preferred Solution: Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

Hello userwin,

Each volume has it's own hidden protected OS $Recycle.bin file that stores deleted items from only that volume. One volume cannot have it's $Recycle.bin file on a different volume. It must be on itself.

When you open the Recycle Bin, it lets you see all the deleted items from the $Recycle.bin files from each volume there much like a library does with included folders.

If you like, you can change the storage size of the recycle bin for each volume to fit your needs if free space is available to do so.

Recycle Bin storage size

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I accidentally deleted my recycle bin from my desktop instead of clicking "empty recycle bin"...Where can I find it off the desktop?

Answer:Accidentally deleted Recyle Bin

Get TweakUI which is one of the Powertoys from Microsoft.. Run that, and the Desktop section allows you to select which icons to show on the desktop by default. You should be able to get the Recycle bin from there

Hey all.

About 10 days ago I deleted a Word document in the Recycle Bin. I don't want the contents of the document back, but I would like to know either a) the date of when I last saved the deleted document or b) the date of when I created the document. I haven't created any other Word documents in the last few months, so an indirect method (i.e. dates when I created unspecified Word document) would be equally as useful.

I need to know as if I know roughly what the date is, I'll know what data I was using. It would have been within the last 12 days to five weeks, and whilst I have a good idea when it most likely would have been, I am far more certain on the week, let alone day.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Scott.
 

Answer:Deleted Word Document in Recyle Bin (not what you might think!)

You'd have to attempt to recover the document to get any such information, the document is the only place where any such information would be.

You could try Recuva free to see if it can recover the document then you can check the Created and Modified dates.

Also, you can go to the folder the file was originally in, right click on the folder name and see if there is a Previous Versions tab, if there is then you can restore the file that way or check the Created and Modified dates there.

Hi,

Today I was in Disk Management and accidentally removed Volume K: which was my external Seagate Hard Drive. I meant to re format and delete the files but not delete the acutal volume.

I now cannot see my drive K: when I go into My Computer, but it is their in device manager, when I plug it in an out, i get the noise, but I just cant access it, so I did a system restore to a few days ago, but no look its still gone, i actually am not worried about the files on it, I just wanted to be able to use it again.

I am using Vista Home.

Answer:Accidentally deleted volume under disk management

You should be able to go back into Disk Management to re-initialize and reformat the drive. With the Disk Management window open, look down at the list where the individual drives are listed in bold print (it should list Disk 0, Disk 1, the CD drives, etc). The drive in question should be listed; right click on the bold print for the drive and choose initialize. Once that is done, you should be able to partition and format as usual.

Hi I had 2 external hard drives connected and in disk manager I clicked delete on the wrong one? So now the drive wont show up, so I simply created a Simple volume and know it is a RAW drive? How do I recover the files there was over 100GB and some of them are really important such as records and work related stuff, it is currently a RAW partition and all the hard disk recovery softwares dont recognise it because it is a RAW drive? do i have to format it to recover the files? Please Help!?!

Answer:*Important* Accidently deleted volume in Disk Manager, how to recover?

Do not format the disk.
this would make your task more difficult or even impossible.

There are free partition recovery tools available on the net.

Question the deletion, was it your operating system or are you still able to boot into Windows. I have never been in this position but someone will post some software for you. Just don't muddle the disk any further.

If you are able to boot into Windows this link will give you an idea of what you are looking for. Hang on because I know some forum members have done this will be suggesting more software.

Can a deleted file be recovered from an image/clone hard disk?
 

Answer:recover deleted file from image disk?

Welcome to the Board see7102!

Not sure I quite follow your question. You deleted a file from your hard drive, but had previously cloned the drive to another drive? If so, and the file existed when the clone was done then the file is still on the other drive (unless it was deleted there as well).

Or, did you make an image of the drive and saved the image file someplace? If you made an image, then you may be able to access the file from the image with out having to restore the image. For example Norton Ghost has Ghost Explorer, which will let you pull one file out of an image file. Other imaging programs likely have something similar, but I'm only familiar with Ghost 2003

What software was used to make the image?

In Disk clean up,compress old files shows 314,714K. After I perform disk cleanup and start disk clean up again, I see all other files show 0 except for compress old file. How can I get rid of the files contained in the compress old files. Pl note I do not want to delete the compress old file option in the disk clean up, just want it to show 0 similar to other files.

Answer:Files cannot be deleted in the compress old file in disk cl.

When old files are compressed by the Disk Cleanup, they are not moved to a special folder. They stay where they've always been but Windows just compresses them so they take up less space."Old files" in that context are any files or applications which you have not used for a long time. So you would have to uninstall all such applications and delete all such files in order to for Disk Cleanup to show "zero" for compressed old files.We cannot tell you what applications to uninstall or what files to delete. Only you know which ones you haven't used for long time.

I was having trouble with my computer on Friday, it would freeze a few minutes after start up. All programs would be "not responding". I would restart it and the same thing would happen.

I ran Rkill in case there was anything malicious running and nothing was found. I ran Malwarebytes as well and nothing was found. I used combo fix to restore my system to a previous date and the problem persisted.

The system would freeze even at the log in screen if I waited more the a few minutes to log on. Time is some sort of factor.

Start up repair "disk metadata test said the root cause was 'Volume on disk corrupt' Repair action chkdsk Error code OxO.

A few other tests that are available (or automatically performed themselves before start up) mentioned NTFS but I did not get a chance to write it down.

NOW when I turd on the computer that scrolling windows progress bar goes by a few times before I get a completely black screen on which I can still move my cursor.

Answer:System volume on disk is corrupt? (disk metadata test)

Either windows Vista needs re-installing, a Factory Recovery is required, or the hard drive is starting to fail and therefore needs replacing with a new one.

You can test the hard drive with the drive manufacturer's diagnostic software. You will need to download the DOS version which runs from a bootable CD. The download contains an ISO file for creating the CD. The links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Answer:Help recover deleted volume

Hi,

You can use the undelete option in a 3rd party partition manager. As long as you haven't attempted to change that partition in any way other than delete it, should work fine.

If you have a partition Manager - see if it has that option. Post back and let me know.

Hi guys, first time poster here so hopefully this will be at least somewhat bearable.

OK, so here is what I wanted to do, I was looking around the net and stumbled on to some videos about software RAID with USB drives. I know it isn't a very elegant or practical solution but I thought it would just be cool to see it working. So I found this article How to Create a Software RAID Array in Windows 7 and figured that since disk management in both 7/8 are essentially the same it wouldn't be a problem. I then went to delete the volumes on the flash drives and saw the option was grayed out. So in that state the drives cannot be used for what I wanted them to be used for. I did notice that on his tutorial his drives were described as "Basic" and my drives are described as "Removable" I think that somewhere along the line I saw something about removable drives being hard to work with in disk management so that may be it.
So if anyone knows how to do this all help is greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I have received my laptop with a 250GB HDD partitioned into two primary partitions (well there is actually four with only 512MB called NVCACHE and another of 1GB as EISA Configuration). One of the partitions is a system, boot, page file ... partition containing the OS (Win Vista Home Premium and contains about 35GB space) and programs. The other is a partition for all the data (~198GB). I am now starting to run low on disk space on the OS partition (<3GB) and wanted to add some more space. I tried to use Disk Management but this did not work because there is no adjacent unallocated space on the same disk next to the OS partition. There is only space at the end of the data disk partition, which I cannot move to the OS partition (at least I do not know how).

Is there a way to increase the disk space for the OS partition? Both partitions have following set out:

Layout: Simple
Type: Basic
File System: NTFS (except for the small NVCAHE which is FAT32 and the EISA does not have any File system)
Status: Healthy

regards

Pete

Answer:I deleted system volume information

I'm not understanding your problem very well as your post is somewhat brief and hard to comprehend.

1. I'm assuming by "baku" you mean backup? Please confirm.

2. When you say you deleted your system volume information do you mean the actual folder itself, or the contents of the folder?

3. When you say "no restore" do you mean you can not now set a restore point?

Any further details you can give as to what you did and what you are trying to do would be helpful.

I had all my files saved on the secondary Western Digital 160GB Sata HDD, it was listed first at the time... But I accidentally deleted the volume on it.. Is there a way to get those files back? I had photos, movies, music, some other important files. The whole reason for having them on that secondary drive was to save them (kicking myself), until I installed Windows 7 on the new 500GB Sata HDD... I got a copy of Paragon Partition Manager 11 Personal ... and going through the Undelete Partition wizard now... Any help? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

PS. I just did the "delete" option in the Windows 7 installation section for "advanced options", the HDDs were there.. but I accidentally hit delete on the 160GB instead... That's all I did with the drive though.

Answer:Went through to Windows 7 installation, deleted wrong HDD volume..

To try and answer your question; yes and no. You can take the drive and try to have it professionally recovered. There are some companies out there that specifically recover data from these types of situations. This can be very expensive and no guarantee. I know this not what you wanted to here.

I have 3 hdd in my system and have made notations as to the location of each drive and how the OS see's each of them...ie 0 is hard drive 1, 1 is hard drive 2 and 2 is hard drive 3, which is the way I have mine installed in the hdd cage...I know that hdd 0 is the 1TB drive and hdd 1 and 2 are 320 GB for backups and data storage. Keeping in mind each drive letter that the OS assigns to each of them. So when a re-install of the OS comes along I know what hdd is what and where.

Hi, I accidentally deleted the volume on my 3rd hard drive and now my Windows Vista PC won't even recognize the drive. How can I fix this?

The problem started when I put my old Barracuda 160 gig drive in a usb external case and couldn't get it to work until I put the jumpers on 7-8. The problem was, it was asking me to format the drive which was full of files which I wanted to retrieve. Through a series of now obvious mistakes, I first shrunk the volume backwards, I meant to shrink only 50 MB but deleted all but 50 MB and then stupidly deleted the entire volume.

What I need now is to at least be able to have my PC recognize the drive again and to be able to restore the full volume but would ideally like to still be able to retrieve the data, if that's even possible at this point. Also, why does, or did my computer only recognize this drive in the 7-8 jumper configuration? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony

There's proprietary software that provides this functionality.

Ok I am going to create a new thread on this, as I had been posting on one dated from 2012 that was an identical issue, but I think starting a new thread would be better.

I have a 1TB Western Digital HDD.

It is not my OS.

It is my data storage drive, with over 850GB of data and applications installed on it; while my OS resides by itself on my SSD.

I also have a small 1GB usb drive.

I was attempting to set up the USB drive as a bootable and was about to wipe it clean.

I was in Disk Management in Windows 7.

The WD showed up as 932GB.
The USB showed up as 934GB

I got the two mixed up, and I accidently deleted the Volume on the WD.

I did nothing else at that point, other then have a complete and total panic attack, nearly lost my dinner into a toilet... then started Googling for a solution or fix.

Google brought me here, to this thread - Undelete Hard disk Volume and recover data!

The poster appears to have done the exact same thing I did, and even posted that they found their own solution.

Question: $Recyle.Bin

Hi,
 
I have recently restored my computer to factory default on 18 May  using the recovery partition because I suspect that I was infected previously.. I have transferred some of the old files back with a Hard Disk on 21 May.
 
Today, when I browse my files system with Google Chrome, I discovered that the following directory is modified on 21 May
 
file:///C:/$Recycle.Bin/
 
Under this directory, there are two folders 
 
S-1-5-18/
S-1-5-21-1638051867-2052896208-3278405153-1002/
 
Upon checking, the web suggests that I got infected. What should I do?

Answer:$Recyle.Bin

I beg your pardon, but where did you check (what website - provide a link if possible)?  What was identified as infected? Have you tried emptying the recycle bin to see if that helps?  The recycle bin is supposed to be in that location, and subfolders should look like that....

I have 2 questions

My computer(XP) won't let me restore to an earlier date, secondly, I accidentally deleted the recycle bin, how do it get it back?

Answer:XP Restore & recyle bin

1. Your Restore points have become corrupted and they are unusable. Right click [B]My Computer/Properties/System Restoretab. Put a check box in Turn Off System Restore. This will remove all previous restore points. And Restart your computer. Turn system restore back on. Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Create a new restore point for today, if your computer is running good. You will be able to restore to this date in the future.
2. Right click a blank space on the Desktop/Properties/Desktop/Customize Desktop/General. Restore Default. This will restore the Recycle Bin to the Desktop. You can also access the Recycle Bin in Windows Explorer.

Question: virus $Recyle.Bin

I got info about virus on net.So checked accordingly, found $Recycle.bin virus in my C drive, how to remove, if it is a virus, without deleting windows related files, if at all existing here.

Answer:virus $Recyle.Bin

kvb, since you've found that one, I'd be sorta surprised if there aren't other nasties (virus, worm/trojan, etc.?). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I?m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:http://www.superantispyware.com/among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running. Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ?restore?. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.HTH.Ed in Texas.

Place a checkmark next to this item, leave the others unchecked.
Now press the Delete button.
When it is finished, there will be a log on your desktop called: RKreport[2].txt

Hello,

About 2 weeks ago I noticed a couple of new folders in my HD They are called $recycle.bin and System Volume Infomation. These folders did not exist before and they are located on the "C" drive and the "D" drive (two seperate HD). Both of these files are protected and cannot be removed. There are also a few files, that's on the HD and in folders, that were not on system before these are: boot.ini, desktop.ini, thumbs.db. thumbs db appears in every folder when opened. I can delete $recycled .bin folder but it comes right back. I know it's related to a file called desktop.exe because, it ask me to delete this file whenever I delete the $recycle.bin file.

The $recyle.bin and desktop.ini also copy themselves automatically to anything I attach to the PC, (External drive or USB Key).

I am running the windows xp professional OS

I ran the virus software (Norton antivirus 2009) but it doesn't pick up this virus at all. I've tried in Safe mode as well as in regular mode,

I am desperate, I don't know what to do anymore. Could someone please help me to solve this virus or do I have to format.

Thanks

If you right click on recycle bin and go to properties, there is a box you can check off that says;

Do not move file to the Recycle bin
Remove files emediatly when deleted.

uncheck that box, now when you delete things they will go into recycle bin before the final delete is made.

For the first time ever (believe it or not), I have deleted a file by mistake and tried to recover it from the Recycle Bin.

But when I try to access the Recycle Bin using Windows Explorer, I get the following message:

D:\$Recycle Bin\S-1 5-18 is not accessible. Access is denied.

FYI, when using Windows Explorer, my Recycle Bin shows up in Windows Explorer as "$RECYCLE.BIN" and shows as having 3 sub-folders. The root directory for D:\$Recycle Bin shows as being empty. The three sub-folders are shown to be:

1. AGK
2. Recycle Bin
3. S-1-5-18

The first sub-folder (AGK) is the result of my installing a software package named Auto-Gordian Knot.

The second sub-folder (Recycle Bin) shows as being empty.

The third sub-folder (S-1-5-18) is where I assume the file would be located. But when I ty to open it, I get that message.

I get the same result whether I try drive C: or D: (I have two hard drives installed).
But I recall having specified in the configuration of my Recycle Bin to use one Bin for all my hard drives.

Actually, before making this post, I tried to verify the configuration of the Recycle Bin and so I right-clicked on it and then selected "Properties". I can't seem to find that entry that enabled me to choose whether I wanted to use a separate Recycle Bin for each drive or one single Recyle Bin over all drives.

Clicking on the recycle bin desktop icon no longer give me access to it. Right-click, left-click or double-click. It doesn't matter. All I get is the good ol' hour glass. Once that happens, I can access any other running program - once. After that it will hang too. Even if I click the X to close the app down, it doesn't go away. Because I hear the sound that is set to run when a program ends, I think it actually does close, but I still see it on the screen. The only way to back out of the mess without pushing the button, is to use my launcher to shut down the system.

After rebooting, everything is fine - until I try the recycle bin again. I have discovered that opening Windows Explorer and going to the Recycle Bin icon from there, will show a view of the Recycle Bin contents and I can also empty it from there. Once, after emptying it from there, I was able to click on the desktop icon and actually open it. But that is the only time it works, when it's empty.

It's always taken a long time to open. I usually have a lot of recycled files - but not opening at all and causing all this to do is very weird. As I said, I can work around it but it is annoying and if there is a simple fix, I'd love to know of it.

Thanks.

I then installed Portable Apps Suite onto the USB Drive.
Now when I check the directory of the USB Drive, I see the files/folders that are supposed to be there, which fine and dandy.

But I also see two extra things:
1. Recyle Bin

2. System Volume Information

AA: How did these two files get there?

Answer:Recyle Bin|Shows up in External USB Drive

The recycle bin on the desktop is not really on the desktop. You see, when you delete a file it is moved to a (usually) hidden directory on that drive called recycle.bin. The recycle bin on the desktop shows the contents of all the "recycle bins" on all drives.

System Volume Information contains system restore points and probably some other information but I'm not sure what.

Just check "Hide protected system files..." in folder options and you won't see either of them.

So I opened an Office Writer attachment (.odt) from an email and made edits to that document. I hit save but not save as.Tried to open the file the next day but it got deleted. I did some research and realized that was stupid and looked everywhere for advice. So I've gone into temporary internet files folder and I cant find it there. I had deleteted my internet browser history yesterday. Following some random advice on the internet I tried to restore my browsing history by downloading som index.dat reader. Needless to say I am so completely lost. I just need to know if its even possible to recover it. Im willing to goto any computer shop and pay whatever it cost at this point. Oh and the exact message I'm getting is:

C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content\poli352a[1].odt does not exist
 

Answer:Need a file from temp internet file but I accidently deleted browsing history

First, download the free Process Explorer.

Run Process Explorer.

Open your e-mail program (mine is Outlook Express).

Open your e-mail message.

Open your attachment (Office Writer attachment (.odt)).

Inside Process Explorer, right-click the new process (from the application used to open that attachment).

Select Properties...

Select the Image tab.

Look inside the Command line bar.

You'll see the exact path to the temporary folder created for the attachment.

Make sure to check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected system files" in Folder Options.

Only copy the part from C:\Users to Content.IE5.

Note: a new folder number is created each time you open an attachment (e.g. IGSDF94V)

Example:

"C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\Office10\WINWORD.EXE" "C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\IGSDF94V\Example.docx"

Paste that path inside the My Computer address bar and click OK.

You'll have to look inside each folder manually for the name of your document. The folder number will be different from the one you're seeing inside the Command line bar in Process Explorer.

Do not run a Search. Look very carefully inside each folder. It should be there!

I am very new in using my computer. I just do not know what to do.

My computer has all these links, and one of them is the Download link where all downloads or attachment i open from the internet goes to.

i decided to transfer all data to my D drive because I want my C drive to have all the space in the world.

Now the Download link becomes my D drive and it's driving me nuts! It's all messed up. I cannot access the C Drive again - i cannot transfer back the download folder and its link back to C.

please help me to retrieve it.

First, the message that prompted is that the System Volume Information doesn't allow the transfer of data.

I tried to access the System Volume Info and now I get the Failed to build the list of regular subfolders in recycle bin.


Can someone help me out?
i want my download link back to drive c and clean up my drive d.

i have attached some screenshots of the problem.

hope you can help me guys.

love,
desperate techie illiterate.

Answer:SOS - Failed to build the list of regular subfolders in D:\$Recyle.Bin

Hi, Welcome to Seven Forums!

I'm not sure as to what you want to do, if I'm correct, you pointed the default 'Downloads' folder in Windows 7 to store files on the D drive, and now you want to move it back to the C drive, you get an error?

Question: Disk\\?\Volume

My AV is Avast 2015. Every time I run a scan, it pops up "Threat detected", but when I click "Show results", it doesn't. When I look at the scan history, it shows the following"

Disk\\?\Volume{f4acb2ae-2618-11e3-8a57-806e6fe6963?\{+}\{+} Boot Record
Error: The parameter is incorrect (87)

I have run chkdsk /r on the boot drive (an SSD). I have run AdwCleaner. Neither find anything wrong, and the PC seems to run perfectly.

I found the "{f4acb2ae. . .} folder in the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\MountPoints2\CPC\Volume. It's there twice.

What is this "thing" and how can I get rid of it? If I zap both of the registry folders with this name, will it render the PC unbootable? Are the entries valid and Avast is issuing a false positive?

Administrator: If this should be under Security, please move it.

OK i should admit that this was a slightly dubious file alledgedly proving a certain starlets dislike of underwear..... However the file name is so long that Windows XP will not let me delete it... also the file was corrupted ( no pun intended ) so has a zero file length.. I did virus scan the download and AVG said file was not virus.... anyway i need to get rid of it any ideas....!!!

A big shout out to all replies But the Biggest thanks to Moderator John Will who had the simple idea of shift everything else then delete folder........ Why is it always the simplest ideas that work best... PS I eventually saw evidence of starlets dislike of pants on google images.... Take off safe search and leer away without having to download any suspiscious files.

Thanks Again

Open the "Computer" window. Right-click on the drive in question (most likely the C: drive) and select "Properties". Select the "Tools" tab. In the Error-checking area, click "Check Now". Select both boxes and click "Start". Schedule the disk check and then reboot.

Win XP SP3.

On my second hdd I have 3 partitions, one of which I created to use
with TrueCrypt. This appears as Z: and it's just under 10GB.

It's worked fine for months, but suddenly I cannot access it, either
with TrueCrypt, or even with XPs disk management program to reformat
it (I suspect it will even prevent me from deleting it)! In both cases
I get an error message saying that the volume in use by some other
program, but I cannot find out what. I've excluded Z: from the real
time scanner in Avast, and also excluded it from my Genie Timeline
Backup monitoring (it was never in there anyway). The XP disc
management program reports the volume as healthy but full (presumably
because it's encrypted with TrueCrypt.

How can I find out what's using this volume?

I have a backup of the data that's in this volume, so don't mind
"taking a hammer to it" if necessary, although I'd really like to find out what's happened so that I can maybe trust using TrueCrypt again!

Thanks, David

I have recently installed a second 320GB which I want to mirror my main drive (also 320 GB)

I can see the drive in "Disk Management" and it shows as "unallocated"

I have right clicked and started the Mirror wizard and the disk appears - but the total volume size is shown as 0 - it is greyed so I cannot change it. Underneath the correct sizes are shown. The wizard will not allow me to continue.

I tried to format the disk using "New Simple Volume" and this seems to create a K: drive - but when I right click it does not give me the option to Mirror

Any ideas most welcome

James

I tried to install a .exe file (in order to support ArchiCad 12) onto my laptop (Gateway NV79). I get a message saying "Out of Disk Space -Volue 'D:'". It should be installing onto the C: drive. My D: drive is my cd/dvd drive. I am not sure why it is doing this and cannot figure out how to correct this (I am in no way a computer expert). Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get this to install?

Answer:Out of Disk Space- Volume D:

Are you getting a chance to specify where the program installs to? Where are you running the .exe file from?

My computer is only about 6 months old. I've been trying to install an iTunes update, but anytime I try I get an error message about being out of disk space. I had iTunes installed on my external hard drive, so I thought maybe if I moved it onto my computer it would work. Nope. I'm still getting the same annoying message. I've never had a problem installing iTunes updates before. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Answer:Out of disk space on volume G

how big is your hard drive?how much space is set for the C: drive.?do you have seperate partitions?if your drive showing as full?you could check folder and search options/view/show hidden files and show system files, then you would see what is taking up all your space, it may just be hibernation files, backups, restore points, all of which you can adjust to take up less space or delete.i hate computers!but cant help myself....

Question: Wrong disk volume

When I turn my computer on, on the boot when it checks the hd size it reads it as 130gb when it is only 30gb. This prevents windows from loading. I can access CMOS and fix the error but it will happen next time I boot up. Heard of this?

Try checking your IDE cable it might be damaged.

My friend took his computer to Best Buy who ran the restore on it with his main files on a second drive. The drive is now ganked, but I'm working to recover the files if possible.

In Disk Management (XP Pro), I can see that there's a 37GB volume with 20Gb free (looks like his missing files). There's a second volume on the disk that's only 47 MB and it's Active (so I can access it, but there's nothing to speak of there).

The point is that if I click on the 37Gb volume, I can't seem to do anything with it. The only menu option available when I right click it is "Help". If I click the disk itself, I have the option to convert to a dynamic disk, but I don't want to do that without knowing what will happen to the data on there.

When I dig through the properties, I can see data on the 47MB disk, but not the 37 GB. Does anyone know what to do with this!!!?
 

Answer:Unreachable Volume on Disk, What to do?

Oh, and the 37 GB says this:

37.22 GB NTFS
Healthy (EISA Configuration)

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?

Do anyone know where the removable disk volume label saved? on the removable disk or local disk? sometimes my removable disk connntected to other PCs, the volume label can be show also, that means that the volume label saved on the removable disk, is it? which file? thank you.

Answer:Where the removable disk volume label?

The volume label is written to the device/drive. I don't think it's stored in a file that you can easily edit though. I believe its stored in the master boot record and i wouldn't go messing around in there.

My question is when i replace it, can i use the recovery disks for my laptop or will i have to buy Windows 7 again. Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

 

Answer:system volume on disk is corrupt

Hi sassenach01 You can use the Recovery disks that came with your laptop to reinstall Windows on a new hard drive. However, are you sure that your hard drive is failing? We could check it together and see if it is or not. The "System Volume Information" folder is where system restore points are kept, maybe they are just corrupted and needs to be deleted. In order to delete them, right-click on Computer and select Properties. From there, click on Advanced System Settings in the left pane and click on the System Protection tab. Click on the Configure... button followed by the Delete one at the bottom of the window to delete every restore points present on the system. Once this is done, let's check the health of the drive.Please download GSmartControl and save it to your Desktop.Extract gsmartcontrol-0.8.7-win32.zip to a folder, double-click on gsmartcontrol.exeA list of hard drives will appear, single-click each disk to see Drive Information and identify your drivenote: most machines will only have one or two entries, but an easy way to identify your drive is by its size.Double-click on the hard drive to see detailed Device InformationClick on the Attributes tab, do you see any red or pink entries like the ones below?
