Windows 7: A couple questions

17 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 
A couple questions

1. I made 3 partitions, one which includes my windows/system32 files.
Therefore, I have 3 partitions that include C:, D:, and E:.
C: Is the one with my system32 files.
D: is the one that include all my files and games in. The problem i'm having is that within my D: file, that won't delete. I'm going to link a picture of it into this post. I tried deleting it via command prompt with the del /f /s /q /a, while taking ownership of it, but the access was still denied. I've right clicked it and tried to make sure that all the security bypasses were made by allowing myself privileges to delete it, but no use. How do I go about doing this?

2.I currently have the Asus z68 vpro, and I was wondering if lucid virtu is something worth activating? As far as I know, I understand that the mechanics include switching from the onboard graphics to my actual graphics card, depending on what i'm doing.
Is it worth activating? It looks kind of complicated to get started? If so, what kind of drivers would I need?

3. Is there a way where I can add programs to my "Control panel uninstall" section? I say this because I've transfered game files from a USB over to my harddrive, and it doesn't show up there

Edit: For question number one, while trying to delete the file via cmd, I saw something that said eula.rtf. I'm not sure what that means.

etsnsm,

Let's go at this one and only one problem at a time.

For problem #1, did I miss what you are trying to delete?

Also to make sure that we understand your disk layout,, then we need following:

HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY
Run disk management:
WIN |
type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
This method gives you a display without the unneeded navigation pane.
WIN=key with Microsoft logo on top.



Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar
key combo | X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field.


Make a snapshot:
WIN |
type SNIPPING | ENTER | New
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save


Post the snapshot:

I didn't quite understand what you mean't by Maximize the output of the Disk Management, but here's the best I got from it.

Code:
aximize the output of Disk Management:
 ALT-Spacebar key combo | X key (selects Maximize) |
 Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field.
Which part of that do you not understand?

The wording made it confusing.
Either way, I've posted the snapshot within the previous post

We've seen multiple unsolvable permissioning problems when moving User folders to another partition, as well as Windows 7 backup imaging viewing those other partitions as System to include in image. For this reason it's now generally recommend to simply copy your User folders to another partition and then link them by rightclicking to add to the relevant Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums. This avoids these problems.

What was the reason you installed programs to another partition? These write registry keys which integrate themselves into the OS so they should be kept on the OS partition and included in its backup image.

To add programs to Control Panel to be able to Uninstall them, you need to Install them correctly. Running a game from an old Programs File folder is not correct even if it works.

Try doing a disk error check on it. It should pick up any files that are corrupted and un-deletable.

I would say only if you are using a laptop would this be useful as the onboard will use less energy and lengthen your batterylife (or if your power goes out and you are on a UPS) otherwise I wouldn't think this as useful. I might be wrong.(probably am)

^^^^ Exactly... Programs should not be installed by moving folders to and from a drive. I don't know if these games are working for you in that capacity or not, but I would suggest re-installing the games instead of moving them. Same for uninstalling. Always go through an un-installer instead of deleting folders. As for your question, only re-installing them will put them in that list as they are not right now actually installed.

Using the Alt-Key and the Spacebar opens up the Top menu of the window. Then X-key will Maximize it. I have never done this this way (good info though). I usually just click on this thingy:

TJG :)
I also don't understand this....
I would suggest renaming them

A: System B: Data and C: What_ever_you_are_using_this_for

Or even better, correct the drive letters so your first drive is C: System

How to change drive letter assignments in Windows XP (for XP but should work the same in Windows 7)

Lol should have just stuck to that.
