Preferred Solution: Help please need to get a document off drive

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: Help please need to get a document off drive

XP's built in security has probably restricted access to her data unless logged in as herself on the original machine.
You probably only need to take ownership of the folder.

I have a ton of docs in GD, but when I go to open them remotely, they will come up, but I can't "open" them and work on them. That is, they will open in the GD window, I can read them, there's a print option, etc, but you can't just open it in Word, say, so you can work on it.

This has to be simple, but I'm confused.

When I build a system last year, I followed instructions on a website to move the Document folders (My Pictures, Videos, Downloads, etc.) in Win & to a different HDD (other than the SD where Win 7 was installed).

The first admin account that was created and used to make this change would not be impacted but all subsequent new accounts would have their document folders location changed. So once I created the main admin account I created a second account after making the change and used the second account from then onwards. This way all my saved documents were being physically installed on the larger capacity second HD.

Unfortunately I cant find that step by step instruction (I believe it had something to do with changing the registry??)

Anyone know where I can find that instruction again. Also, is there a better way out there to accomplish this now?

Thanks.

My boss has a special network folder mapped only to his PC. He keeps a lot of xls and doc files that are for his eyes only. One of the xls files refuses to save, the error message states that the "file is currently in use". No one else has it open, or even has access to it's saved location.

He can still save a copy with "Save As.." but he can't even manually delete the original file afterwards.

I'm thinking it might be a hung process, but I wanted to see if someone here has a solution/explanation. I'm going over to mess with it now, and will check back later to update.

I am running Windows 7 home premium, with school computers the same, and an Android Razr Maxx.

I have Google Drive and it seems to be sharing docs well....I see them at home, at my work, on the Android phone....however I have this continuing problem: at my work, I go to open a doc or mp3 or PP or whatever from GD. It shows up in Google docs right away....but the file - download function doesn't always work; that is, it often won't allow me to access the original document......sometimes it will just time out and i'll get the "IE was unable to load page" or whatever message that you see when you don't have an internet connection....that happens a lot actually.

Also, I have mp3's in there, and when I try to open them, no dice.

I want to be able to simply open any doc or PP or mp3 in its original form. Sometimes I can, usually I can't, so, big source of wasted time and frustration. To be clear: most of the time, I dump these files into GD from my home computer. Any help appreciated!

You need to burn it to disc using your writing software (Nero?)

Also check:

IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service is not disabled, and is started (you can just double click on the service to change its startup)
This will allow you to drag and drop directly to blank media in My Computer

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help! I'm in the process of taking my ex employer to court and in the process to prove the dates that they have created certain documents I have asked them to provide me with copies of the "date and time stamps" or "property profile box" showing when they were created, I am aware that these can be tampered with so I'm not relying totally on the information.
Two of the profiles boxes they sent for two of the documents were dated exactly the same date and time and were obviously not the originals as they had been converted to pdf files. However on the 3rd document, which was supposed to be written by an individual it states the location as K:\cmm\program files\mailbox\Attach As an individual I have never saved a document to a K drive. Can someone tell me what a k drive would normally be used for and explain the location address for me please? who would create a document under the program files!!!!! Please help!!!

Hi maddal1ne,

Just a guess here, going by the path name, that the file in questions was sent to someone as an email attachment and then fowarded to you. Assuming this, it is is a probable location for a mail program to save attachments.

It is unlikely that the drive letter has any significance.

My machine won't boot up unless I disconnect all of the Hard Drives. I still have my two SSD's (RAID 1) that have Windows 7 Professional installed still running fine.

I had one hard drive ST4000NM0023 (4TB) fail (had four of them), and so I replaced two of them with ST10000NM0096 (10TB) drives.

I had software backing up the failed drive, which was my D: (Documents & Program Files) drive. The backup drive F: (D Backup) has now been renamed my D: Drive, and I transferred all of it's files to a new F: backup drive.

I had to copy & paste everything from one folder over to another one of the same name because Windows 7 had automatically installed new folders with the proper icons on them (as per attached image). I had two of "My Pictures", "My Documents", etc.., with one having an icon and one not.

It seems like I had to move my files to the new folders or else my other programs couldn't seem to find the files they needed even though the the folders had the same name, minus the icon.

Copying files from folder to folder was very time consuming, and used all of the systems memory. I would successfully reboot the system after each successful transfer so I could restore the RAM back to 64GB.

Hi

I am installing some software on a laptop (Toshiba L300, Win XP pro, Dual core 2.0GHz, 2GB Ram)

I get an error message Invalid drive u: and the installation fails.

I followed an article in microsoft knowledge base to edit registry.

In shell folders there is an entry for personal which had u: in the data field.

The documents folder should be a network drive y: so I changed it to that.

The program installed but now when I try to open a document from the network documents folder it says I don't have permission.

How can I fix this?

I have been thinking about this problem.

I cloned the drive from an identical computer registered to jbloggs, then copied this clone to this laptop changed the computer name, user name and network documents folder to asmith.

Is there something else I should have changed somewhere?

Hi, 3 weeks ago I added an external hard drive, to which I transferred my My Documents folders as well as some other stuff. All worked fine, Windows was happy with the new MyDocs location etc. However yesterday I attached my camera briefly via USB and subsequent to this, Windows seems to have renamed my external harddrive to F: instead of E: and also changed my document folders to "Jamie's Documents/Picture/Music etc." instead of "My Documents"

I've managed to rename the doc folders but not the drive. I don't personally care what it calls itself, but some programs are having difficulty finding relevant files.

Any ideas whats happened and how to reverse it?

Answer:XP has renamed my hard drive and Document folders!

To change the drive letter, go into drive manager under computer manager in the control panel, right click on the drive and change drive letter and assign it E:.(Make sure nothing else is using that drive letter other wise you will not be able to see one of them).
My 5 external drives are assigned letters starting from the end of the alphabet. This way if I plug some thin else in it doesn't conflict.

I have a laptop with a crashed hard drive. I bought a USB to SATA/IDE Adapter to copy the documents from the hard drive so I can reinstall Windows. The repair option will not work. There is a user on the hard drive that was password protected, and I can't access those files. Is there any way I can gain access to those? The computer will not start so I can't get in to change the password.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
 

Answer:Hard Drive Crashed - Document Recovery

Sometimes you can do a fresh install of Windows on a new HD, add the same user name and install the same password. Then add the second HD and try accessing the protected folder.

If windows just wont allow you to access the folder on the second drive but it wasn't password protected, booting a Linux Live CD such as Knoppix may be able to access the data.

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

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

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

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

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

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

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

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open.

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

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

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

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

Thanks everyone!

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

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

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

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

Hi all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Regards

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

Hi all.

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

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

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

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

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

Thanks anyway.

This might be kind of tricky.

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

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

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

Hi,

Is it possible that when you save in Word (2000) it makes a backup copy on the C:?? I save all my work on a Floppy disk then put in my computer with printer (then print it). However recently my disk drive has been playing up and have lost everything on the disk.

So when I save something on a floppy it also creates a backup on the computers hard drive. (Saves file on Floppy A:\letter.doc and creates a backup on hard drive c:\backups\letter.bac)

I know you can create backups on word except it saves them in the same directory (in this case a:\ which is pointless since I lose all data on the disk)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

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

Hello,

Now the problem is i need a backup of each letter on my computer and i have no clue if its even possible to save each page in the master document as a unique document. If not, is there a way of saving each unique document of a mail merger?

Hi,

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

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

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

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word. Additionally, I know that the document could be sent from Windows Explorer by right-cli... Read more

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

I use one drive to backup my excel spreadsheets for my small business.

What happens if he has a spreadsheet open on his iPad at the same time that I am saving an updated version to one drive?

Answer:Can I save a document update to one drive while the prior version is open on another device?

technically the updated verion should sync. Unless your husband makes changes to the existing or open sheet and saves it after you have done your changes it might update to the last one. Try one sample document to your needs and see how you go? YMMV

How to: Automatically Backup My Documents Folder To Google Drive

It is working, but the danger is if someone deletes your files on google drive, it will sync back to your pc and delete them too. It is very convenient. To do it the stock way, means you have double files on your PC.

Save to Google Drive allows you to save any web content directly to your Google Drive through the context menu of the browser.

In the settings you can choose where the contents get saved, I recommend navigating to your Google Drive and creating a new folder for all Saves with this extension which makes it easier to organise later. Or you can change the location from the dialog that appears once complete.

You can save all types of contents including;
- documents (pdf / docx)
- images
- webpages including HTML5 audio and video (html / webp / webm)
- audio and video (mp3 / mp4)
- archives
- software (exe / msi)
and much more!

Simply right-click over the image or link contents and Save to Google Drive.

As seen below, Save Link to Google Drive will save the executable to the cloud.


No downloading or re-uploading required to Google Drive.

This extension has been available for many years, it's not new, but most may overlook it's abilities.

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

Question: document to disk

Hello,
I cannot get a document from word perfect to copy to a disk. Comp. says not formatted. Then says cannot format due to disk. I have tried several disks and still nothing. I sure I'm doing something wrong or am leaving out a step. Help, guide me! Thanks in advance, Virg
 

Answer:document to disk

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

Question: Missing document

Hello. My computer is a Microsoft 7. A few days ago I went in to retrive my document and it was gone. I use Word Document 97. It's a document I had saved for the last couple of months. I've tried everything, even 2 different recovery file softwares and nothing was found. Last week when I turned off my computer, a black screen appeared with all kinds of letters and numbers and had no idea what it was. After several seconds it came back to normal. The next day I couldn't find my document. Can you please help me? Thank you in advance.
 

Answer:Missing document

All important files on your system should be backed up to an external hard drive or DVD's to avoid this kind of problem. The document may be lost, but can you recall where you saved it and its name?

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) and save it to your desktop. Do not get tempted to download Regclean Pro.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click on FRST to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press theScan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run from. Please copy and paste it into your next reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes another log (Addition.txt). Please also copy and paste that into your reply.

Question: Text Document - KB

This is probably something very elementary, but what are all these files that say Text Document that begin with KB and then have 6 numbers. Are they important to the operation of my computer or its programs?
 

Answer:Text Document - KB

KB usually refers to the microsoft knowledge base and the files are associated with
installed windows updates.

Question: pDF document maker

I have adobe acrobat 5 and used to have a freeware programme which allowed me to make pdf documents from word files (about 2 yrs ago).
It inserted a couple of red icons on the word taskbar which if you clicked would convert that word doc into a pdf file.
I cant remember what it was though
Anyone remember what it was called or any freeware alternatives
Many Thanks
Mark
