Reboot to suddenly have a new "System (F:)" drive? Don't have permission to access it. No security tab.

Question: Reboot to suddenly have a new "System (F:)" drive? Don't have permission to access it. No security tab.

After newly installed updates, I now have a new drive in my drive list called "SYSTEM (F:)". I don't have permission to access it. It tells me to give permission in the security tab, but there is no security tab in the menu it opens up (properties
menu). The drive is 296 MB in size with 38 MB used.

Preferred Solution: Reboot to suddenly have a new "System (F:)" drive? Don't have permission to access it. No security tab.

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.)

I just put about 25 gigs of data on this drive. It's an 80 gig drive and has about 20 gigs of space left on it before it's full. Out of all the files I cut and pasted over it got stuck on this last ISO file.. it refused to move this file.. so i stopped the move operation, and rebooted. I never had any trouble with this drive. It's a drive that is hooked up via a USB port. On reboot, to try to copy or move the file again, Windows tells me this drive cannot be accessed and needs to be formatted before it can be used.

That's not an option, or I'll lose tons of months worth of data. The drive is pretty warm.. I'm letting it cool down to try again, but i cant see any reason why this drive could have been damaged just moving files to it.

Any ideas of other reasons why windows might erroneously fail to detect the drive properly and give me this error?

My Windows 10 laptop has several shared drives (not folders).
They are shared with Everyone, Full Control, Password-Protected sharing is off.

I can't access them from my main PC, but I can access the Users\Public folder.

Sharing settings below...

Answer:Shared Drive: "Your user account doesn't have permission to access"

Can't access them from my Android device either. ES File Explorer says"

Login fails
This may be caused by:
- The account has no permissions

I therefore assume the problem is with the PC with the shares, not my network.

I have an external drive (2Tb, Toshiba, USB3) which I wiped (formatted and created new volume on). I run Win7Pro64. The drive seemed to be working fine, until I rebooted, Then I got "Access denied" when I wanted to explore its contents. When I then tried to give the drive another label (in this case from M:\ to N:\) it again worked. Also when switching back to M:\ worked. However, when I reboot, I again get "Access denied".

In safe mode, the drive seems to work fine.

Any clue as to why this is? Any help is greatly appreciated - this is driving me nuts.

Thanks!

Answer:External drive gives "Access denied" on reboot.

Okay, so I found the solution to this myself after some struggling. My computer is an HP which comes with its own security software. It turns out the default setting is to not allow USB devices. Good to know for others who might be struggling with their HP desktops...

Hi
I have recently updated to the creator version
My files end up in unintended destinations. When I click in the documents tab in the sidebar of the documents screen, it takes me to a ?Documents? folder that appears in ?One Drive? group. Any files that I send from my desktop end up there
Those files are also shown when I open the first ?Documents? folder that appears in the ?Quick Access? group. I have similar problems with ?Pictures? folders
I have attached screen shots that I hope will explain. I want all my files of any description to end up in the ?Documents? folder contained in the ?This PC? group. Can anyone help please?
Incidentally, I don?t understand the purpose of ?One Drive?, and don?t believe that I will have a use for it. Can I remove/disable it?

Hi I get the following error when attempting to access my drive,
"You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder."
Upon clicking Continue, another error pops up,
"You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security tab."
Security tab is an underlined link that opens the properties manager for the drive however there is no security tab, I assume because the flash drive is considered a virtual drive, which is typical, so I can't take ownership of the drive as suggested by all the Google searches I did.

Hi all,
I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo sick to f**king death of Windows security prompts!!! Ever since I first got XP about a decade ago (now on 7), this lovely little error dialog (or something similar) has not always, but at least once a month, shown up when I've
tried to move or delete a file or folder:
File/Folder Access Denied
You need permission to perform this action
You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file/folder
(name of file or folder and date created)
Try Again and Cancel buttons
Clicking Try Again brings the same dialog up again, and clicking Cancel has obvious results.
I'm on the only user account on the PC, which is an Administrator account.
Trying to take ownership of the file/folder tells me that "Access is denied".
Haven't tried using the hidden admin account as I don't see why the f**k I should have to!!!!
Look Microsoft, I don't give a flying f**k if my files are vulnerable to hackers or not; I just want to be able to access them MYSELF!!!!!!! My network is on a router with a 128-bit encryption key and a hardware firewall, as well as a software firewall on
each PC! If anyone can get through all that, I'll tip my hat to them and let them do whatever they want to my files! But for crying out loud, I JUST WANT COMPLETELY UNINHIBITED ACCESS TO MY OWN F**KING FILES!!!!!!!!!! This has been a problem for as long as

Answer:Windows Security is driving me crazy!!! "You need permission to perform this action" when deleting files

I'm on the only user account on the PC, which is an Administrator account.

No, with USER Account Control (UAC) you have user rights. I explained this here in a guide for users like you:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/135143-faq-what-is-the-uac/
UAC is fine and solve 90% of the security issues.

I added a slave drive to my Windows XP Pro computer, and it appears to work properly.

However, when I open the "Documents and Settings" folder (on the slave drive E:\, which is Windows XP Home Edition -- not XP Pro), I do not see any of my documents, sub-folders, etc. There should be MANY sub-folders (inside the "My Documents" folder which isn't even visible), with hundreds of documents, jpgs, etc. within it.

When that drive is installed as the Primary drive in my other computer, the User "Larry" (which is me) has all Administrative privileges. On the computer that I'm running now (with the slave drive in it), I also have Administrator privileges. I own both computers.

My User Name "Larry" is password-protected when I login to Windows (when the drive is Primary and installed into my main computer (not this computer with XP Pro).

I've tried clicking on all the users; Administrator, Default User, Larry, Guest, etc. (Note: I get an "Access Denied" error when clicking on the Guest "Documents and Settings" folder).

So, the questions are:

1. Why can't I see any files or subdirectories in the "Documents and Settings" folder on the slave drive?

2. There's supposed to be a folder named "My Documents," but I can't find it. Normally, that path is "C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents".

I've read tutorials on how things like My Documents in Vista are really junctions to new file paths, but I still haven't been able to figure out how to apply it to my situation.

The power kicked out on my old computer, and I had another PC lying around, so I stuck it in as a back up drive to access the files I still wanted. So, the old drive that used to run XP is no longer the operating drive, just used for storage, it's the D drive and now there's a new C drive. I'm able to access just about everything I want except for what's in "my documents". I keep getting "access is denied".

I've looked for the new file paths listed here:
Access Denied to Documents and Settings*-*Vista

on this back up drive and on the new operating system drive. but I could only find the old "my documents" folder on the old drive (D), and the "documents" folder on the new drive with the operating system installed (C) only has new files I've created or d/led since I've installed the operating system.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but I get a little triangle with an exclamation mark instead of the red circle with an x when I get the "access is denied" message.

Any help would be much appreciated. I've taken ownership of the whole drive, but I read that doesn't apply in this situation.

Answer:"access is denied" on an old xp drive now used as backup on a vista system

The "My Documents" folder in your C:\Users\username folder in your Vista drive is a junction but that doesn't affect the My Documents folder on the old XP drive which is still a real folder, not a junction.

You should be able to get access to that folder in Vista, if you can fight your way through the ownership and permissions maze.

If you have various user accounts, log in as the Admin user. Right-click a link to Windows Explorer in the Start Menu and click "Run as administrator". That way everything you do in that Explorer window will have elevated priviledges and you won't keep getting UAC prompts. In Explorer, right click the My Documents folder on the XP drive, click the Security tab and give lots of rights to the account you are currently using. Then you might be able to copy files out of it into an ordinary folder which you should make outside of any user folders.

If all else fails, you could try running Linux from a live CD, such as the Ubuntu installer CD (no need to actually install Ubuntu onto the hard disk). Recent versions of Ubuntu include a file manager which can access NTFS partitions. It is less obedient of NTFS security restrictions so it might allow you to copy the files from My Documents on the XP drive to an ordinary folder on the Vista drive.

When I try to access local drives in an RDP session from one Windows 7 Professional machine to another Windows 7 Professional machine the "net use u: \\tsclient\c" command receives:
"System error 87 has occurred."
"The parameter is incorrect."

When I try to access the same local drives in a RDP session with an Amazon cloud machine running Windows Server 2008 there is no problem, the net use succeeds. So I know the client machine is configured correctly. I am believe this was working on these same machines in Nov 2013. Coincidentally the Win 7 machines will no longer rdp if the server machine is on a Wifi network, only a cabled one. On Wifi, the RDP session fails to fully connect (it establishes a partial connection.) I can live without Wifi connections. It is probably irrelevant to the problem I'm trying to solve.

I have scoured the internet unsuccessfully for a solution.

Any suggestions?

On both 64Bit & 32Bit Win7 machines I get an error message, denying access to a file in a folder within another folder. All have been shared, permissions granted & drives mapped to each folder. That is in addition to initially applying the changes to the file folder, subfolders, and files.

The message comes after the Client machine accesses the program, and attempts to generate a pdf.

The 64 is Win7-Win7 connection, while the 32 is connected to an XP.
Initially, I thought it to be a 64 issue. However, now it seems to be a Win7.

From somewhere, somehow, a folder named "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" has been created in my W7x86pro root dir. Trying to look inside, I had to "permanently get access". But then inside it, there are a whole lot of folders named things like 1025, 1028, 1029, etc, ending with 3076, and 3082.

What's in those folders, I have no idea, since every time I try to open one, I first get the "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" dialog, and then when I click Continue, I get "You have been denied permission to access this folder".

Also inside the "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" folder, there are files, like "Setup.exe" and "NDP40-KB2473228.msp" and "SetupEngine.dll" and some *.bmp and some other files. I guess that NDP40-KB2473228.msp gives away that this folder has something to do with some .NET framework update, but AFAIK, there's no .NET-anything installed on this computer.

I want to remove the "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" folder, but there seems to be no way I can get permission to do that. trying to get ownership or set access rights, all I get is "Access denied" or similar.

Does anyone know:
1. What those folders and files are doing there?
2. How do I remove them?

I hope you guys can help me here. I consider myself an experienced admin for my home LAN including Win 7 and Win XP systems, and a networked HP printer. I have been able to solve many networking-related problems over the years. I keep a record of all my patches and fixes, so if I solve a problem on one system, I have a guide to solving the same problem on other systems.

Until a few weeks ago, everything was hunky-dory. From any system, I could access all the folders and files on any other system. All-of-a-sudden, my wife's system, which is still Win XP, restricts access from all the other systems on the LAN, but not at the drive level. I hadn't done any new software installs, or any hardware upgrades on my wife's system when this problem came up. The system is pretty old but it has been extremely stable.

From any other system, I can still access each of the drive's root folders, e.g. C:\ or D:\. I can see all the files and folders in each drive, but I can't access them, e.g. I can see D:\lists or D:\family,. but if I try to open up one of these folders, I get the typical Windows error message "You do have permission to access ..."

I do not use simple file sharing, and for each drive share, I have full control permissions enable for Everybody. NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled, and File and Print Sharing IS enabled on my wife's system. I have already implemented the IRPStackSize fix, with value decimal 50.

have you tried simply re-asserting the permissions?

you say you havn't use simple file sharing. What do you mean by that and what did you use instead?

I seem to be having an ownership issue with just one of my folders, and I'm not sure why. Mainly I just want to know how to fix all of the subfolders at once though. I keep all of my documents and everything on a seperate HDD from the OS HDD. Well, I recently switched from the Windows 7 RC to Windows 7 Pro RTM, and now I'm having problems accessing the 'My Pictures' folder that resides on my "Documents" drive. It's weird, because I didn't have any issues when going from XP to the W7 RC.

Anyways, when I first went to open 'My Pictures' I got the dialog box saying "You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder." Well, I went ahead and got that folder to work. The problem is, every single folder in 'My Pictures' and every sub-folder gives me the same thing. Being that I have probably 100's of folders in there, I can't sit here and click through every folder and set it up so I have permission to access it.

Long story short, I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to set the entire 'My Pictures' folder and all of it's subfolders at once so that I have permission to access all of them.

I looked around the net a bit, and I came across some stuff to do in Command Prompt, so I did it on my Documents drive, and it said it was successful, but it didn't do anything to the contents within it I guess, since I still... Read more

Hello SevenForums users!

Yesterday I reformatted my PC, everything went just fine. However, when I'm now trying to access a folder in my (D hard drive I get "you have been denied permission to access this folder" I do know how to fix the problem folder and files each, but how can I fix this error for my hole (D hard drive? Is there a more simple way to fix this without going through all my files? There's also "unknown" users with numbers that have access to the files, like it would be my old user before reformat. How can I remove them the most simple way?

I also want to know why did this happen? I have reformatted before and didn't encounter this problem, and I can't think of anything that would make this happen.

How can I prevent this from happening again? I reformatted my PC after fixing some of the access to see if it would happen again, and it did.

I also noticed that on some folders there are a lock on the icon, as well as that most of the folders are write protected and I cant remove it!?

I appreciate all help I can get!

Thanks.

there are lots of things i like so far about vista (i've had it less than a week) and a few things that are obnoxious and nonsensical. one of them is this:

this is a home computer. i'm the only user on it. i'm logged in as myself. i'm trying to download some outlook backup files into windows mail. to do so, i have to drill down through \users\username\local settings\etc. to where i'm going.

but every time i hit \local settings i get the aforementioned error message. i'm eventually routed to the security permissions tab where i can plainly see that i have FULL CONTROL. apparently full control is not really full control. i'm not trying to erase the registry for pete's sake.

please tell me there is a SIMPLE way around this ridiculousness...

Answer:"You Dont Currently Have Permission To Access This Folder"

It does that because of the UAC (User Access Control) feature in Vista. Only way to get around it is to disable it. Instructions on how to do so can be found here

Hi all,

First post so apologies for sharing the burden. I am running a Win Server 2008 R2. One of my users informed me that he could not access a couple of folders within the server. Upon checking, I found out that even I do not have access to the folder, even in administrator account. Whenever I try to open it, it says 'you don't currently have permission to view this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder.' so I clicked Continue.

It comes out with another popup that says 'You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder, you need to use the security tab. The security tab part is clickable so I did.

It shows the folder properties > Security with a message of 'You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings.' I clicked the Advanced tab > Owner -> Edit button. Checked the Replace owner or subcontainers and objects. I can see the Administrators as a choice. I even tried keying in an individual user. After that, I clicked 3 subsequent OKs.

Nothing happened. Kinda stumped on this. I did read some help from here earlier but it couldn't work. I can't just 'restart' this as its a running server. Halp pls.

this has been driving me nuts for the past few days trying to figure this out.

I am trying to share a folder off my external hard drive that is connected to my laptop with my Desktop PC.

Both computers are connected to the Homegroup and are seen on my network with no problems finding them.

Now every time I click on the folder that is on the laptop from my Desktop it gives me this error:

I have read around and see that I need to edit my permissions and I have done so for my laptop and I have given my PC full control over the folder but I just doesn't connect and gives the error every time.

The only folder on my Laptop I can access from my PC is the "Users" folder...

I don't know why this keeps happening and I'm going crazy here trying to figure it out.

Please, any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!

Bought a new computer (Win XP Home), thought the easiest way to transfer files from the old one (Win 98SE) was with a simple network. Put a network card in the old one, got a "crossover cable" since I'm hooking computer to computer with no hub, ran the "networking wizard" on the new one (basically let it do everything it wanted to by default), it recognized the network, said it set everything up, made me a floppy to use in the Win 98 computer to set everything up on it. XP says it now has a network.

So, in Windows Explorer on the XP, I try to access the hard drive of the old computer, and get the message "Workgroup is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server [um...that would be me...] to find out if you have access permission. The list of servers on this workgroup is not currently available."

Both have the same workgroup name, both have different computer names. The Win98 computer is set to share all files. What do I do next?

Hi Experts,

I work on a Windows 7 Ultimate computer and need to access files on my wife's Windows XP SP3 computer, specifically I'd like to copy my Favorites to my Win7 computer. However, whenever I try to access Documents and Settings on my WinXP computer I get a "You don't have Permission" error.

I've made both the C:\ drive and the Documents and Settings folder sharable from my WinXP account there, the permissions are set so that anyone on the network can access the folder and make changes to files on it. I can see it on my Network (formerly Network Places) but can't do anything with it. I've rebooted both machines more than once after making the changes.

What's missing?

Just to give an explanation of what happened.. I reformatted my PC (I like to do this often, probably once every 2-3 months. More frequent if I deem it necessary) and I was installing drivers and the likes.. Windows Update, etc..

I was installing EasyTune 6 (This is basically a Fan Control program made by GIGABYTE for their motherboards because their Bio's is complete shit.. but that is a different story) for my motherboard because my CPU fan likes to scream like a goat for no reason at all. The BIOS and default settings like to rev up the RPM on this fan for no reason. No heavy load of programs or anything.. So yeah, we use EasyTune6 to control the fan speeds. I tried to install it with a pre-downloaded version but I kept getting errors and it would Undo the installation (Or what have you). I tried it a few times with no luck. While I was trying again, I was installing Windows Update at the same time. Easy Tune 6 failed to install, and so I clicked "OK" on the error box and let it do its thing. I had to poop, so I went to do my business. I come back to see the computer has restarted (Windows update ^^,) and my EasyTune6 wasn't fully removed. I cannot install a new EasyTune6 with the previous one "Still Installed" - which it isn't.

So, now I have a directory on my computer (C:\Program Files (x86)\GIGABYTE\ET6\) and it only has 1 file inside of it (Flash11e.ocx) that I cannot remove. I use to get the error "You require permission from SYSTEM to make... Read more

After conferring with a custom DAW (recording system) PC builder I found out Easy Tune was a system hog and causing the problems. I uninstalled Easy Tune 6 (using Revo Uninstaller Pro) and that eliminated my system Latency Problems and also eliminated the popping and crackling in my recording audio.

I have a vendor application that does not run on Windows 2000 unless the "Act as part of the operating system" permission is granted, but runs fine after granting this right to the user running the app.

Interestingly enough, the application runs on Windows XP as well, but works fine on Windows XP without granting this permission.

I have quizzed our vendor about this, and they have no idea why it works this way. They have no plans to modify the application, and have told us that this is simply what we must do to make the app work on Windows 2000.

So my question is twofold: first, what could cause the same application to require this permission on Windows 2000 when it runs fine on XP? Second, what are the dangers associated with granting "Act as part of the operating system" permission?

Thanks in advance,
Tim
 

Answer:"Act as part of the operating system" permission

Normally an appliction should just use the Local System account (which has this by default)

The only reason not to is if they are excahnging password in plain text (not very secure),,, so only grant this to trusted users.

Initially, the networked Win 7 pc would show in File explorer on the Win 10 tablet but wouldn't open on double-clicking giving a "Cannot open ...... the network path cannot be found" message.

Pressing cancel and double clicking again usually opened the location and displayed the shares but I get the "You do not have permission... " message when trying to open shares other than the public folder.

So this is weird. My wife's TP-LINK 450mbps wireless n adapter was working like a champ for months. Now when it tries to connect to our main router, it always gives a "wireless security key mismatch." The passcode for our wifi has not changed. It's wpa2-psk (AES). The PCI-E card will not connect to our 2.4GHz or 5GHz on the router. The wifi configuration on the router has not changed. I have re-set-up the wifi access point properties on the computer; there is no error with the security key. My computer (and all of our other devices) can connect to it as usual. I can plug in a USB wifi dongle to her computer, using the same network configuration (saved on her computer), the USB wifi dongle will connect to our home router properly--no "wireless security key mismatch" notification.

I have uninstalled the card, deleted drivers, reinstalled, re-set-up wireless properties. Still doesn't work. This is Windows 7 home premium 64-bit.

What's even more odd: I removed the TP-LINK, and reinstalled it to the PCI-E slot lower. It will still not connect to the 2.4GHz--but does not say "key mismatch" it just says the generic "cannot connect." But...trying the 5GHz again--it will connect, properly, and speeds are normal. However, I recall when this started happening a while back, the same thing happened--2.4 and 5ghz went out, but then 5ghz would work again.

I just installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus heat sink on my Athlon II X4 635. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3. Things were going good, until i tried a slight overclock in EasyTune 6. I tried not even a 200mhz overclock (10 or 12mhz on the FSB). After a few minutes the system hung, and self-rebooted. Upon rebooting, windows 7 64 bit logged in just fine, but instead of successfully connecting to the internet, I see the Yellow Triangle in the taskbar, and a "No Internet Access" popup.

The internet connection is, in fact working. Another wired desktop in the house is connecting just fine, as well as my wireless laptop. The router is a Netgear WGR614v6. The computer in question is connected to a basic linksys 4 port router, which connects to my ps3 just fine. If I run ipconfig /all on the desktop, It even identifies the custom dns servers I have specified in the router, and I can load the web interface for the router. I have tried the MS Fix-It which reinstalls the TCP/IP stack, as well as searching the services list for bonjour, or the other item that Apple apparently installs, and none were there.

Seeing how I can load the web interface in a browser, and identify, but not connect to other computers on the network, the network adapter seems to be working. Wondering if it's a driver issue, I even installed the newest Realtek GBE drivers from Gigabyte's web site.

Answer:Filezilla "EAI_FAIL" and "EACCES - Permission denied"

try some of these tests for TCP connectivity

Ping using an address shows connections are working.

Ping using a domain.name shows that DNS lookup is working as well as connectivity.

Nslookup does name resolution by both address and name

Filezilla is a FTP tool and apparently has both client and server support.
Windows/* already has FTP Client support (start->run->ftp),
so why use Filezilla?

Please help as I've been searching everywhere for the solution to this problem for the past 2 days (and nights-=)...

I have a:

Dell Dimension E521
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 4000+
2.10Ghz, 3Gb Ram
Windows XP Home v2002 SP3.
I recently installed a new WD500gb hard drive to go along with the original WD250GB one.

I backed up some information to the new drive using NovaBackup (I originally tried to backup with Acronis but prefered the Novabackup interface and hence uninstalled Acronis. I also installed Comodo Firewall on that day.

Everything was fine. I wanted to keep the new drive unaccessible to other users on this computer so I installed Faronics DeepFreeze as well as a "disk lock" type of program whose name I do not remember right now. Again, I was not convinced by either of the two software titles being what I wanted, so I uninstalled them both. Everything seemed normal, though.

The other day I tried to check the calendar. When I double clicked it I got the "You do not have the proper privilege level to change the system time" error message.

As mentioned, I've tried every solution I found online, including running Reset.cmd off of subinacl.msi, clearing security events records, and installing/running gpedit but to no avail. gpedit didn't show the keys / values for Security Settings under Local Policies and I do not know how to create them - I found the gpedit instructions here which would have fixed the problem (suppose...

This morning when I attempted to use my computer, any application (IE, OE, everything) I tried to start gave an error message (paraphrasing) “Insufficient resources exist to complete the requested task.” I thought a reboot was in order and when attempting that got “you do not have permission to shut down this computer” or something similar.

After unplugging and rebooting everything seems normal, but I’m going to run AV, anti-spyware and Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Event log shows an error at the same time “the server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empty”. Server? I’m not networked to a server….I’m sure it means something else, but what?

Recent software changes: Deleting MS Antispyware due to inability to upgrade to their new Beta 2 Defender (something do to with GDI, which I tried to fix by following info on the MS site), and downloading some critical updates from MS.

I’ve done searches on the errors and the answers don’t apply. I’ll probably revert my HD with an application called GoBack if the scans don’t find anything but thought you people might know what caused this.

Win2K is my OS.

I'll be checking for responses as I can't get response notices due to my ISP.

Thanks in advance,
Randall

Hi guys. I'm new here. I've tried to read all the discussion about how to fix the unallocated hard drive but I just can't understand it as the cases were pretty much different than I'm facing of.

Here's my problem.
Yesterday my external hard drive seems normal, everything is fine, until there's a blackout and I have to put "sleep" to my laptop. After the power got back, the hard drive suddenly gone and when I check the list of drives under "Disk Management", it showed up as "Disk 1 - Unallocated".

(I've attached screenshots here for your viewing)

My external hard drive is WD My Passport 1TB. It contains a lot of valuable data I cannot afford to lose. I really hope there's a way to fix this, and once I get back all of those precious data I will buy another HD to transfer them ASAP because I cant let this happen to me again.

Your help is so, very much appreciated.
Any questions regarding my problem, let me know. I'll provide all of the details you guys need.

NOTE
1) I've tried TestDisk but on the "Analyse" process, it says "read error"
2) I've changed cable, but the situation remains the same.
3) I've tried Recuva, but it doesnt recognize my external drive.

Answer:WD EXTERNAL HARD DISK 1TB suddenly "unallocated" and "not initialized"

Hi!

First don't mess up with the WD drive settings.. download partition wizard 7 (its free)..then .. open it ..click wizard(menu) .. select partition recovery wizard.. and it will find the partitions on it i think.. that way you can recover your partition that has been lost.

When I go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools and click "Rate this computer", it crashes before it's done.

Desktop Window Manager Sessions Manager is disabled, not running, and the option to start it is greyed out.

sfc \scannow didn't finish, so I ran it at boot using method 1 here: SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot That gave me the error "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete." I rebooted into windows and then back to the disc several times and got the error each time. My computer does not have a pending.xml file.

Since sfc \scannow wasn't working, I tried to do a repair install using this method Repair Install. I ran the compatibility check (by clicking "upgrade" after starting setup) on the windows 7 disk and it gave me this message: "Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing."

Restarting, however, does not accomplish this. What can I do? It seems my main problem right now is finishing up whatever Windows thinks it needs to update on a reboot (I've rebooted many times since discovering the message.)

Here are the relevant details from my CBS.log:

A. Should I type this after booting to the Windows 7 disk's cmd prompt? dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions There is no pending.xml, so I'm not sure if it would do anything.

For no apparent reason (machine is less than a year old) the computer will go to a blank, black screen and the message "operating system not found" will appear. I press and hold the power button to turn it off, I turn it right back on, and it's fine.

I did get a BSOD last night, but itunes wasn't running and I had just connected my GPS running watch through USB. I can't tell if these are related, of course.

Hello !! Welcome to SF !!

Go to your BIOS setting and check the boot order make sure Hard disk is selected first. I have seen if the boot order is different sometimes we used to have this problem. Make sure your USB is never plugged it while rebooting the System.

Hello - thanks for taking the time to hopefully help me. :-)

I don't believe this is a virus/malware problem, but it started shortly after I got a windows message saying that Norton 360 was "processing threats"...I was (ashamedly on Fail.org), but not downloading anything. Here's a quick history:

My task manager was diabled, my desktop background was blank (greyed out), and regedit was not available. I also noticed that if I went in to change my desktop background, I didn't have the option of changing my background, or browing for one. And I was periodically getting a "windows" message (that was clearly fake) saying: "you system" is infected and to hit "ok" to download antivirus software...which of course I didn't.

When I performed a virus scan, there was no virus detected.

I then ran Ad-Aware and Spybot just in case. Ad-Aware found a few tracking cookies, and Spybot found 1 item (but for the life of me I can't remember what it was).

So, 1 day ago, I was able to reset the value in regedit to allow task manager and backgrounds...and all seemed fine.

But today, my system keeps crashing randomly and giving me the Blue Screen of Death. When I restart, I get a message saying that "The system has recovered from a serious error"

Similarly, my Outlook will freeze once opened...go through about 2 minutes of "Not Responding" and then work fine.

I also cannot connect to my network drives (G, F).... Read more

So here is my problem: Occasionally, after reboot I get "Error loading operating system". After that the only thing I can do is shut down the computer and fix the windows MBR/Boot Sector (see bellow?).

I'm running a clean install of Windows XP Pro SR3 on a Lenovo T61 laptop. I have confirmed that in the majority of times the problem with the MBR/Boot Sector happens during the windows session and not necessarily upon reboot. When it happens there are no symptoms in windows except for when I try to run chkdsk, I get the following error:

"The type of the filesystem is RAW.
CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives."

I've had my T61 for 6 months now and I've had this problem about 15 times so far. Obviously this makes my T61 unstable and is becoming a major problem (I like to shut down the computer before taking it anywhere, and I don't really use Hibernate).

Solving this problem is very easy and takes 3 minutes? But the Win XP CD is needed for the fix and I don't want to carry it around with me everywhere. And anyway, it's annoying and makes my T61 crippled?

1 Change AHCI -> Compatibility in BIOS.
2 Boot using the Windows XP CD.

Hello,

it appears that I have the "System Check" virus. I've read some solutions as to how to remove and all mention the need to the reboot the system in safe mode with networking.

Here's my problem, when I press F8 after restarting the computer the menu that shows up just lists the disks on the computer... it doesn't show up the different modes to start windows.

It's windows 7.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but you could you please help me figure this out. Either the reboot part in safe mode or trying to remove the virus in normal mode?

I have Avast installed. I was just browsing away and all of a sudden I got a message saying "Malware", then the computer restarted itself. A bunch of messages showed up after restart and I couldn't do anything... until the computer restarted itself again. I tried system restore, it failed... and now that restore point is gone. Somehow, without me not doing anything, now I can access the internet.. but I see no folders(must be hidden), no shortcuts, etc etc.

Sorry for the long message and thank you for reading. I'd appreciate if someone could assist me.

Hi. About a week and a half ago I got a new computer, and more recently (slightly over a week ago) reopened it to install a graphics card and WiFi card. Up until this past Thursday it has been working flawlessly, and I really couldn't be happier (It's for gaming, the card is a new HD5770).
However, when I got home and got on the computer to start using the game demo I had downloaded from steam, I started getting annoyances in game, where for a fraction to half a second, the game would freeze (if I had to compare it to something, I'd say lag in multiplayer games where due to a bad connection or what have you, you might be moving, and then the game freezes for a fraction of a second, and you magically end up somewhere else) and the audio would just buzz, and this happened fairly frequently, even more so once the action got more intense. Aswell, before that on previous days, when playing World in Conflict, the audio would sometimes buzz very quickly, but there wasn't much of a performance glitch that I noticed. So as I used my computer more that day, it seemed to get worse, and by the end of the night the desktop would be messed up, and the internet suddenly became very slow, where many pages would take minutes to load. With desktop performance, I'd be moving my mouse across the screen, the system would freeze, and after a milisecond, the pointer would skip in the direction it was going. It seems to keep getting worse, although it may have plateaud.

Hi Guys,

My Avast antivirus software reported that it had found a root kit. I panicked a bit and let it delete the file without taking any notes of what it was. This is the first time I had ever had a "rootkit" reported.

To make sure all was well, I downloaded 4 rootkit remover programs -

AVG Anti-Rootkit
Macafee Rootkit Detective
Rootkit Revealer
Sofos Anti-Rootkit

I ran them all, but they found no more rootkits.

But now, every time I start my computer, as soon as Windows starts it displays the blue screen message:

"Checking file system on drive C:.
The type of file system is FAT32.
One of your disks needs to be checked for condsistency... "

I always let it run and there are never any problems reported. I have not had any shutdown problems for months, which is one reason why I would occasionally get this message.

I think that one of the root kit programs may have left something permanently set so that this file system check is always performed.

One of the tests I did was to start the PC, let it do the file check, and then let it finish its normal start up. Then I shut it down immediately without running any programs. I then started it again and Windows still performed the file check.

So my questions are:

How can I determine whether there really is a need to check drive C:?
If the check is not needed, how can I stop this check being performed?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Recently I have almost exclusively been booting into WIN 7.
In this D.B. Setup The booted OS appers as Primary Partition on the C:
drive with the non-active OS as "Unallocated Space " on the D: drive.
This all happens on the No.1 Hard Drive.
No2 Hard Drive has been partitioned into several Partitions , the
First one as a Primary Partition with the remaining Partitions as
Logical drives.
Today , when I booted into WIN 7 , there was no sign of the second
hard drive and its Partitions even although both drives ( Serial
Drives) were recognised in the initial part of the Bios screen during
this bootup.
When I looked in Disk Management , I saw that the first Partition on
the second hard drive appeared normally as a Primary Partition but
that all remaing space on this drive was shown as "Unallocated Space"
I then re-booted into the XP OS .
This showed the second hard drive and all its Partitions normally ,
i.e. with its first Partition as the Primary and all subsequent ones
as Logical Drives.

Hello,

I have a Windows XP Pro Version 2002 Service Pack 3, Pentium 4, 3.20 GHz, 2 Gig Ram desktop machine. I was browsing several websites and had a popup message to install some program. Without thinking, I accidentally hit yes instead of cancel and now my machine is infected with spyware. When the computer starts, a program called "System Security" pops up that appears to do a system scan and finds 38 trojans and spyware. Since I have never heard of "System Security" before, I am almost positive that I have been infected and that the "System Security" software is in fact part of the malware itself.

I ran HijackThis v2.0.2 after startup and this is the log that resulted. I did not kill any of the processes that I believe to be malware and have not yet run any antispyware software such as Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware. I have physically disconnected my machine from the network.

Our secondary drive is drive J. I backup my Quicken files onto it. The drive is spinning. There is just no communication with it.

We tried the standard update driver option on windows too. No luck.

Friends:

I am having problems with XP Home Networking. My situation is like this: I have two PCs running fully updated XP Pro and a Belkin wireless router connected to a Motorola Surfboard cable modem. PC1 is hardwired directly to the router. PC2 connects to the router through a Belking PCI wireless card. Both can connect to the internet. The Home Network Wizard has been run on both using the same settings. When opening My Network Places, however, only PC2 can see its own shared folders. When I try to "View workgroup computers" on PC1, I get a message that says "<workgroup> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource." ... and so on. When I try to repair the Local Area Connection of PC1, I get a message that says "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address." ... etc. Any of the above works successfully with PC2.

Hello,

So a while ago my computer crashed and I wasn't sure what it was so I tried many things because I wasn't getting any BIOS beeps so I thought it was the motherboard but long story short it's the graphics card, so I've replaced that with my old one for now. But since I took out so many parts so many times I keep getting the

And I've set the SSD to the primary boot, I've tried to directly boot it via BIOS but they both still give the same result, I've put the Win7 disk in and done a repair but still, no change.

Since my OS is installed to my SSD, is there a chance it could have corrupted the files or the actual drive when the computer crashed? From what I heard SSD's seem to be a bit fragile.

Any help or recommendations would greatly appreciated.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L770. My hard drive crashed, so I went and bought a new one. I replaced it, and once I did I started up the laptop and came to a black screen which states:

"Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"

I figured a new hard drive would involve a "clean install", so I inserted my Windows 7 Home Premium OEM 64-bit software DVD, with the same black screen popping up.

I, then, went into the BiOS and switched the boot order so that the CD/DVD drive would boot first, but the same thing is popping up.

Would I need some sort of Toshiba Recovery CD instead of the Microsoft one for this to work? I should mention that prior to replacing the hard drive, my brother wiped everything completely from the computer, so maybe I'm answering my own question about the Toshiba Recovery software. Would just like a second opinion and to see if maybe I'm skipping a step or missing something to get this to work properly as it's a good laptop, and I really do not want to have to buy a new one.

Answer:Replaced hard drive with new one, "Reboot and select proper boot..."

ISTR the Windows Installer pauses while still at the BIOS level and asks you to press a key to boot from the DVD. If you miss this, the PC will try to boot from the next device, and since the hard drive is blank, you would end up at the error screen you described. If you're not getting this Windows prompt, double-check the BIOS boot settings, and maybe try another bootable CD or DVD, and see if you can get it to work.

Is it possible to transfer boot files from one hard drive to another?

I have 2 hard drives (S-ATA): one is a 320GB, and the other is a 1TB.

I have Windows XP installed on the 1TB drive, yet I notice that these bootup folders and files are on the 320GB drive:

[$RECYCLE.BIN]
[RECYCLER]
[System Volume Information]
AUTOEXEC.BAT
boot.ini
CONFIG.SYS
IO.SYS
MSDOS.SYS
NTDETECT.COM
ntldr
pagefile.sys

Therefore, when I wanted to use this 320GB drive for another computer (that had a defective hard drive), I backed up all the important data from the drive, then I took the drive out, then booted the computer back up, just to make sure it still works. That's when I got that "Reboot and select proper boot device" error.

I guess this is because the boot files got created on the 320GB drive (which is NOT the drive that Windows XP is installed onto) instead of the 1TB drive.

So, what I'd like to know is if I can somehow just copy the folders and files (including hidden ones) and then be able to boot from the 1TB drive. I doubt it would be that simple, but there MUST be a way to transfer the boot information to the 1TB drive.

Does it have something to do with BootMBR, or Windows Recovery, or something like that?

I don't want to change anything until I get some opinions from others.


Thanks.

Help - Please!!!  My Desktop decided to install the Windows 10 updates to my Windows 7 environment -- oh the joys!  Nothing but trouble ever since.  I uninstalled 10 to take me back to 7.
Upon reboot all was fine for a day.  Then, black screen with a cursor.  What the heck?  I checked all the things I was told to check, I ran all the diagnostics.  I uninstalled, reinstalled, did a system restore back to before the update.
After spending 3+ hours letting my system go thru the recommended ePSA Preboot System Assessment (All Tests Passed) - Today I have a system that I can't get to boot up because it says I have:
Status:  Oxc000000f
"The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible."
I'm not a computer geek.  I can't get thru to anyone at Dell.  I've been trying to resolve this for 4 days now. 
The only thing I can think that is happening is that the computer is trying to boot from an external hard drive that is in a "locked/password protected" mode on my system.  I have no idea how to bypass this.  I've tried unhooking the drive and rebooting and then it just goes back to black screen with a cursor.
Can anyone help me?  Please?

Okay so here is my situation. I have to sell this computer soon, but I have two hard drives. Since one of them has a lot of valuable data on it, I decided to keep one of them, and only sell one hard drive with the computer.

Before this, I had Windows XP installed on BOTH drives. I kept the one on the old hard drive as a back up. Anyway, since this hard drive was gonna go, I had to delete everything on the hard drive. So I formatted the drive, and now suddenly, it says the OTHER drive is read only! I didn't even touch it!

It won't even let me access the XP start up, it'll only let me insert my Ubuntu Live CD!

Is there anything I can do with the Windows Installation CD to make it so this hard drive ISN'T read-only?

(I already tried reinstalling Windows, it won't even let me do that!)

I desperately need to resolve this fast, because somebody will be coming to pick up the old hard drive soon.

TL;DR: Deleting a partition on my other drive has made my main one read-only.

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP.

Here's the problem. I plug my external Hard drive into someone elses computer after a year of use, and it says "disk not formatted. Would you like to format?" This is not the first time this has happened and my procedure is : use test disk to access and copy all the files onto another hard drive, do a quick format of the external (regular format won't work) and copy the files back onto the hard drive. This usually works, BUT this last time, a week after doing that, I let my computer go into hibernate with the external on, and when wake it up it's "not formatted" again. But NOW, test disk says "no file found, file system seems damaged". I know that this is all signaling that my drive is old and will die soon, but like everyone I have my life work of 12 years on there and will try everything I can. So my question is does anyone know personalized solution to this? if not, does anyone know of a truly potent hard disk recovery software?: Thanks much in advance. The specs of the system are below

Ok where do I begin?! I have been dealing with viruses, spyware/malware for the past week. It all started with Norton advising me that I had been infected with Trojan. Vundo and Trojan.Zonebac. After that I started receiving many different pop ups warning me about critical system alerts. I also had an annoying yellow triangle at the bottom of my screen warning me about different trojans and worms. More evil friends included 2 new icons that had made their home on my desktop one named "Live Safety Center" and the other "Online Security Guide", also installed was a new toolbar named "Security Toolbar 7.1". I have scanned my computer with many different programs and have somehow finally managed to get rid of the pop ups and toolbar, although I know I'm probably still infected somewhere. I'm sorry this is so long but, I wanted to explain EVERYTHING! I'm running Windows XP SP2, and have followed all steps to post. I downloaded DSS, but after many attempts to run, it just wouldn't let me. I do have a fresh hijackthis log and my Panda report, I hope this is good enough.
Many thanks in advance to whomever helps me, I am desperate!

I Just installed my system with Windows XP Pro SP3. But I have a very strange problem.

I have installed hundreds of computers before but have never come accross this, I have 3 SATA drives in RAID and another 1TB drive as a backup souce. Now when I installed I selected the RAID array as the installation destination, and all went fine. But now that I am in windows this is what I see:



As can be seen, my 1TB HD has been set as the C:\ root and the RAID array with windows on as D:\ When installing programs they are directed to D:\

I think this has something to do with the MBR but Ii do not want to go and remove/remake it without been sure first, does anybody know how to sort this mess out please without a reinstall?

This began after dumbly going to some non-commercial website. NAV auto-protect did initially detect an infection, but indicated it could not quarantine or delete.

Now when launching IE6, it attempts to redirect to a fake virus software website. When I choose the "not recommended" link, IE crashes shortly afterward. Also, I get a fake "Security Center Alert" popup every few minutes. I stupidly clicked on the link to update the security center.

With System Restore deactivated, I have run (all updated, full scans in safe mode) NAV, Ad-aware, Spybot, SpySweeper, Avira and CCleaner. (Then I found this website and learned I should have waited to do this.) Spybot found a couple of registry entries, but that was the only detection made by any of the programs, other than NAV's initial auto-protect message. File gmer.txt is attached.

Answer:IE crash after "Insecure Internet activity", "Security Center Alert" popup

Before any work can be done on this machine, there is something that requires your immediate intervention.

This machine is messed up pretty badly because you have several anti-virus programs on your machine. That's not a good idea!!

Alike firewalls, anti-virus programs have conflicts co-existing with each other & produces undesirable results. Please uninstall ALL leaving only one of them.

ALL the antivirus programs must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstallPost a fresh logs when you have completed the above task.

When I open an old (2003) Exel-file with VBA-code in it with Excel 2007, I get one of these two responses
and I do not know what causes Excel to make different choices
-----------------
1)
A Dialog Box: "Microsoft Excel Security Notce"
This one is very similar to the one in Excel 2003 and that is how I want Excel to behave.
The user has to “Enable Macros” to go on and work with the file.

2)
"Security Warning"
This one is new in 2007 and the user can continue to work with the file even if he does not see the security warning.
That means that VBA-code that I (the programmer) want to run when the file is opened, does not execute.
--------------------------

My problem is that I do not know what causes the two different behaviors and cannot force Excel to open files with the first Dialog box.
Can you?
 

Answer:Solved: Excel "Security Notice" vs "Security Warning"

I think most of the info will be in the dailog screen, i'sn't there's more text in the dialog box than the text you mentioned?

I think if you read through it it'll become clear.

It has all to do with the improved Security settings with 2007 and up

I recently built a call log database in Access 2007 for my team to use when calling agents on our top errors we see from a vendor's error report. My boss is requesting a report to see how many items have been resolved

I have a query started and I am trying to complete this task in a single query (if possible) instead of several queries (as I've done for a couple other things).

I have 3 tables I'm using: Assignment, AgtInfo and CallLog
Joins as follows: Assignment.st=AgtInfo.agcy_st
AgtInfo.agt_id=CallLog.agt_id

Fields in the results: Assignment.assigned_analyst, CallLog.rpt_mnth, CallLog.resolved

Resolved is a yes/no field. I've done a query that converts the -1 to a 1, so that the sum is a positive number for the "Yes" values. I'm not sure how to enter the expression to subract the "Yes" values from the total number of values (yes/no) to get to my "No" count.

Essentially, I'd like the results to display as:

assigned_analyst, rpt_mnth, CountYes_resolved, CountNo_resolved

Somehow the connection is just not clicking in my brain with everything I've read though searches. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

I'm looking to put in a home security camera system but the cameras have to be totally wireless (run on battery along with wifi to the receiver/unit). We live in a 1953 house so there isn't external power in the eve's and being able to run wiring through this place is like an act of congress so using wired cameras is a no go.

I'm not up on all the security camera tech so I'll just list what I'm after lol. Looking for a complete system and I would really like to stay under $500 ($300-$400 range makes me feel much better and I won't have to hear the "You paid what?")

There are so many different brands out and so many different varieties I don't know what to really pay attention to in the specs. Some have cameras that are 1080p but the unit is only 720p or some crazy stuff like that goes on. It's like some of these are just pieced together with left over parts.

I want the whole unit to be the same image quality unlike what I mentioned above. If the cameras are 1080p then I want it recording and displaying the same not some downgraded pixel trash. lol

Hello,
I have an Asus Netbook 1005P, running Windows 7, SP1, with Internet Explorer
11.
I am usually though not always, experiencing the following issue:
When I attempt to connect to Wifi at a café, the "Wireless Network
Connection" for the café's network shows "Connected", yet there is no
Internet access. Placing the pointer over the Connection icon in the
Notification Area displays:
"Unidentified Network No Internet Access".
(The network in question always has its SSID shown in the Wireless Network
Connection list.)
This issue occurs whether I am running only the Windows firewall, or alternatively
try only running the firewall that I prefer which is Comodo.
For antivirus I have Avast Free (with its "web shield"
not installed) and so far as this issue is concerned it makes no difference if I
disable Avast.
When this issue occurs, there are often other customers in the
café connected to the café wifi and also using the Internet.
I have to ask the café to:
reset,
or turn off and then turn back on,
or remove the power plug,
for their router, 
yet other customers do not have to do this to get Internet connection!
This is the issue at whatever café, to whose Wifi I attempt to connect.
My computer has an up-to-date network adapter update!

Please help with a solution to this issue.
Regards,
Robert339
