How to Move Windows 7 Personal Folders Like My Documents to Another Drive 1 year 11 months ago v.laurie I am very sorry that you have a problem. Step 9 does say "select a folder". I do hope you backed up as this is always essential in Windows. I assume you have tried the restore function that is mentioned in the tip. Many, many people have used this procedure without problems and this issue with moving to the root of a drive is one I have not seen before. I see no mention of it in Microsoft's instructions but that may be little consolation. I have added a note to the tip. Added later: Maybe this reference will help: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/18583-user-folders-restore-default-... view

How to get a free legal copy of a Windows 7 installation disk 2 years 6 months ago v.laurie If you mean a product key, no.

How to get a free legal copy of a Windows 7 installation disk 2 years 5 months ago v.laurie Microsoft's policies can be very murky. Although an OEM disk is certainly tied to a specific piece of hardware as far as installation is concerned, I have no idea if it is legitimate to try to extract individual files for use in repair elsewhere. view
How to get a free legal copy of a Windows 7 installation disk 2 years 5 months ago v.laurie I certainly knew what West Swan was asking. Since it would be illegal for someone to try to install an OEM disk on another machine, I saw no purpose in his giving it away unless it was possibly to use for a system repair on another system with a valid XP license. Hence my remarks about extracting files. Microsoft's licensing rules are Byzantine and capricious. If we ever meet, I'll buy you a beer or a lassi or whatever and regale you with stories about weird Microsoft licensing I have run into. view
How to get a free legal copy of a Windows 7 installation disk 2 years 5 months ago v.laurie As I have said in a another comment, Microsoft's licensing is murky and confusing. The object of this tip was to provide a way to get a Windows disk for use in repairing systems that already had a valid product key. view
How to get a free legal copy of a Windows 7 installation disk 2 years 5 months ago v.laurie There is nothing to keep you from using the download as a repair disk. As I have said, I intended the tip to be used for repair purposes. Repair functions do not require a product key. If your system is so badly damaged that it needs a full re-installation and activation, then this quote from the tip applies: "According to what I read at Microsoft sites, these disks are the same as those sold online by the Microsoft store and installations can be activated with a valid product key that you already have." There are apparently examples of people using an OEM product key that worked. Whether this will be the case for all OEM systems, I don't know. If you have a fully functioning system now, be sure to make a full disk image before trouble hits and you won't have to worry.

How to Check the Size and Reclaim Disk Space from WinSxS in Windows 8.1 4 months 2 weeks ago v.laurie Thanks for your interesting comments, johnvk. I am a molecular spectroscopist, not a computer professional, so my computer science friends may need to correct me but here is my understanding of hard links. Hard links are just addresses in the underlying file structure system so mentioning which folder actually contains a file is probably not what I should have referred to. Both folders C:\Windows\system32 and WinSxS can have a reference to the same file. There may be only one collection on the disk of bits called the file but it will be listed by File Explorer as being present in both folders. view

New Free Suite of Windows System Utilities 2 years 3 months ago v.laurie @MikeR: I appreciate and understand your points. Thanks for your interest in the integrity of TSA and your suggestions. What gets included here is an individual editorial decision and in borderline cases reasonable people can sometimes come down on different sides. This program is new, in a popular category, and has been mentioned in various places on the Internet and that is why it is in Hot Finds. Your concern about newbies is shared by us all and was one of the reasons I wrote about it. Several well-known sources have given this program good reviews and I thought it should be mentioned here so that people would get another point of view. This is not the venue for full reviews but I tried to indicate that it was not a top pick. view
