Carolyn, after you retrieve what you want from the card, you could try formatting the card.

Hi Gene,

I have beenusing the Victor Stream for about 11 years.
It just happens.
Once in a while the little slider on the edge of a s d
card gets bumped into the write-protect position.
Remove the card from the stream or pc and slide it back to
the off position.
All will be fine.

Do you get any sort of message such as a right protected
announcement? I wonder if those cards can be set to be
right protected or if that is a sign of a defective card as
it is a sign of a defective thumb drive.

Or, if you get an access denied message, that may be solved
by changing permission settings for the card, but I haven't
learned muchof anything about permission settings.

Hi Allen and Group!

I have been running jaws on a system with a 29.1 GHB processor and 4 GB ram for 5 to 6 years now, and haven't really experienced any sort of slowness or other problems.  The only thing that I notice is that it tends to be a bit slow on booting up and starting jaws.  I am running Win 10 with the latest updates and the system just keeps on keeping on<SMILE!>.  Of course I hope to double my ram at the very least in the not to distant future.  I strongly suspect that if I had 8 to 12 GHB that I would have the ultimate machine! Just another opinion for whatever it may be worth. Good Luck and Have A Good 1!

It sounds to me as though, in some way, a file became interlinked with other files. In other words, something happened and more than one file shares allocation chains that only one file should share. I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss the technical aspect further. I think this kind of problem is very rare but it sounds to me as though that is what happened.


Its been a long time since I've seen anything about this but I believe the term is linked or interlinked, I don't recall which.


I saw this a long time ago and I think I only saw it once when I was
using Windows 3.1 and I got a system faulted message. Using scan disk
found a lot of interlinked files.

Re: Help needed regarding setting security options in Gmail

 

And just for the record, the use of the less secure apps option is not necessary if using Thunderbird.  It has been capable of using the required OAUTH authentication method for Gmail for some time now.

Outlook Express, being as old as it is, predates the OAUTH method.  Not to mention it's been out of support for over a decade now.

Could someone give the details so I can keep them in my help folder for just such emergencies? I do use the Humanware Companion in case that helps.

Re: Help needed regarding setting security options in Gmail

Hi Duke,
 
Here you go:
In your Gmail account settings, have you enabled the use of less secure apps? If you were to create a new Gmail account today and tried to set the account
up in the Outlook desktop app for instance, it would be blocked until you allowed the use of less secure apps. As for the exact process, here are the steps
if you are using the basic html setting in the online Gmail interface:
 
1. Log into your Gmail inbox.
Note:  If you use the, Links List keystroke, Insert + F7, to find the links in steps 2,3 and 4 along with first navigation it'll make things go much faster.
 
2. Locate and press enter on the settings link.
 
3. Locate and press enter on the Google account link, and not Gmail account link.
 
4. Find the, Security link, and press enter. 
 
5. Navigate by heading using the letter, H, until you get to, heading level 2, Less Secure App Access.
 6. Now down arrow to find an, On link, to toggle on the use of less secure apps, it could also be a checkbox.
Note:  I'm not sure if there's a save settings button or not, but it wouldn't hurt to look.
 
Finished.
 
Again, the steps above apply if you are using basic html in the web interface of your Gmail account. If you are not, I’m sure you could Google the steps
otherwise. 
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!

I started using my desktop which also has windows 7 but with mozella
thunderbird. Being a newby in thunderbird, thereare certain things that
i do with outlook express that I don't how to carry them out in
thunderbird. So, yesterday I went back to my laptop to do those tasks in
outlook express only to find out that google is blocking me from
accessing my account stating that it does not allow a less secure third
party application to access my account. I actually have two mail
accounts. the main one which I have configured on both my laptop/outlok

is only configured on my laptop/outlook express  is the one being
blocked now. I tried to configure it in thunderbird on my desktop. The
same issue persisted. It was blocked due a less secure third party email
client. I also tried to tell google to accept less secure applications,
but to no avail. Any Ideas please?
Thanks in advance
