I think there was a thread aboot this a while back. I'm not saying the
following is correct all across the board but here is what I noticed that I
never seen before.

I use to get copy of my responses but today or yesterday, I noticed that
there were two radio buttons send to me or send to me and the person who was
being replied too.

I made sure the latter was not checked and all was good.

The simplest way is to open each drive in a separate instance of Computer/Explorer and then copy/paste everything.  There is really no way to speed up the process unless you want to try a third-party copying utility like FastCopy.

Hi guys, I'm wondering, since process explorer from sys internals is pretty much inaccessible, I'm wondering, has anyone ever found a similar utility like it that is usable with screen readers? Thanks.


CCleaner latest version

problems up-dating antivirus etc

Adrien Collins <adriencollins22160@...>
 

Hi

I am now using my 4 g internet in the uk, I am here
permanently. Firstly I need to change the clock to uk time
zone but when I tried to do that in July when I was here
visiting nothing would up-date. I am able to receive e-mails
etc, it is just antivirus and a few other programs not able
to access the net via the 4g. That is my 4g. ok I am staying
in a b & b, I have put in their own wifi connection on my
laptop, everything works fine. What is happening here
please? I haven't tried changing the time and date as yet.
Why am I have these issues on my 4g but not another wifi?

Regards

Adrien


Re: another question about drives

Carlos
 


Indeed.  Although flash drives usually have the
"Quick removal"
policy enabled by default which in theory makes it safer to just physically disconnect them, using the
"Safely Remove/Eject"
option is still overall safer.

When you are removing a flashdrive it's always best to use the Safely Remove Hardware option from the system tray or, use the eject option from the File Menu or the Context Menu.

Do you know how to run Safely Remove hardware?  Right click it in the system tray.  then after a short pause down arrow to an item for removing your drive and press enter.  You should then hear that whatever it is can safely be removed.  This is used with external drives and should be done before unplugging a drive or before turning it off if a drive has a switch.  After you use safely remove hardware, I check to see if the computer still sees the drive.  If it doesn't. I know safely remove hardware has done what it should do and that confirms that it is safe to remove the drive. 
 
After you use safely remove hardware, there is no point keeping the drive connected unless the drive has an on/off switch and you just want to turn it off but leave it connected.  If there is no switch, the drive will still use and waste a little power.  It uses and wastes power whether you have used safely remove hardware or not.  And you are keeping a USB port occupied for no reason.  And, if there is no on/off switch on the drive, every time you reboot the drive will be seen and will again be seen by your computer after every reboot.  You would have to use Add/Remove programs after every reboot.

It doesn't matter if you are using an external hard drive or a thumb drive.  You should use Safely Remove Hardware.  If you don't use it, you may not have problems most of the time but it is not safe to remove external drives without using it.

Heather, my experience has been that, if there isn’t a button, it turns itself off if you aren’t actively using it. I have three little ones and one big one that don’t have buttons. I used to have a 500-gig that did have one, but it was a piece of junk. The big one I have is a terrabyte, and the two small ones are two terrabytes each. I can carry them around; I got them at WalMart because, at the time, it was what I could afford, but I didn’t get them at the same time. I’d like to have a fourTB or an eight but it must wait. I like these little fellows though; I could take one with me easily if I wanted to.

How do you discconect a drive besides pulling out the port!  I thought there was a disconnect button but, cant find it!  I am using windows 7.  I want to leave my drive plugged in the laptop but, I do not want it to run all the time!  So is there a way to turn off and the drive while leaving it in the laptop?  Or do I have to discconect the drive to do this!  I seem to remember their was a utility that allowed one to turn off the drive and you can turn it back on when you needed it!

Yes, I agree, since it takes such a long time for the move to finish. It’s not difficult to erase when finished.

Generally I would recommend a copy instead of a move.  It may be unlikely, but if something goes wrong you will still have the original copies to try again.

Heather -
 
If you're saying that the 3 Tb drive isn't showing up when you either open Computer from the Desktop or when you press WindowsKey+E, then you can't copy anything to it. First of all, you'll need to figure out why it's not showing up. Once it does, then you either need to use the FastCopy utility previously mentioned or just open each drive separately and use Ctrl+C (to copy) or Ctrl+X (to move) the file and then, Ctrl+V to paste. I always use the move rather than copy, since (1) I've never seen it fail; and (2) it saves having to go back after copying and erasing the file from the original drive. Hth.

But aren't they still using a small amount of power to monitor if they are being called on to do something?  Also, I don't keep external drives connected when I don't intend to use them for awhile because if my computer becomes infected, so may the external drive.  As a security measure, I don't leave them connected.

Yes, most newer portable drives will automatically power down after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Re: another question about drives

Monica Jones
 

I forgot to mention safely remove hardware when I wrote my message, but I do use it also. I was concentrating on her power-switch question and whether it would be running. When I’mjust removing a thumb drive, I don’t use the safely-remove hardware, and they’ve done just fine. However, if I disconnect my hard drives, I always use it. Thank you for he advice about the low-power state. It seemed mine were completely off, so I suppose I gave wrong advice in that regard. Perhaps I should disconnect all mine when not in use? The trouble is, they usually are in use in some capacity.

Do you know how to run Safely Remove hardware?  Right click it in the system tray.  then after a short pause down arrow to an item for removing your drive and press enter.  You should then hear that whatever it is can safely be removed.  This is used with external drives and should be done before unplugging a drive or before turning it off if a drive has a switch.  After you use safely remove hardware, I check to see if the computer still sees the drive.  If it doesn't. I know safely remove hardware has done what it should do and that confirms that it is safe to remove the drive. 
 
After you use safely remove hardware, there is no point keeping the drive connected unless the drive has an on/off switch and you just want to turn it off but leave it connected.  If there is no switch, the drive will still use and waste a little power.  It uses and wastes power whether you have used safely remove hardware or not.  And you are keeping a USB port occupied for no reason.  And, if there is no on/off switch on the drive, every time you reboot the drive will be seen and will again be seen by your computer after every reboot.  You would have to use Add/Remove programs after every reboot. 
 
In short, use Add/Remove programs and then unplug the drive unless the drive has an on/off switch.

Unlike many third-party copying utilities, FastCopy actually does speed up the copying process a bit.  It also gives you more control over how and what files are copied.

Yes, I copied mine with two instances of Windows Explorer. I didn’t know there wer any third-party apps for this, but it doesn’t surprised. I didn’t check for one because Explorer seemed to do just fine, even if it did take a long time.

The simplest way is to open each drive in a separate instance of Computer/Explorer and then copy/paste everything.  There is really no way to speed up the process unless you want to try a third-party copying utility like FastCopy.

Hi Heather,
 
Are both the 1 TB & 3 TB drives external drives, & what operating system are you running?
Take care.
