Windows 7: Problem with USB recognition

Yes David it did work ok after a fashion but was filling up with I don't what - I tried to shift as much a I could to the 1TB backup internal and delete some programs but it just seemed to grow like topsy until the bar went red and having a disaster recently with mu old laptop drive filling up like it too I didn't want to go there again because I had to reinstall all over again after messing it up.

I do have roughly the same programs on each machine I have and have no problems with the others - the machine in question seems to have a mind of it's own it would seem. Programs are roughly the same as in my pics - the only difference is there are more NVidia ones.

When I get back I shall try the old drive back in as I was using it as the C: drive after the previous 120GB filled much the same way. Plus there was nothing wrong with USB ports then it just appeared out of the blue and after the new drive (850 EVO) blew the performance of the old drive (840 EVO) out of the water.
The drivers / software for the external stuff just loaded as normal before with that message that lets you know the software for it is being installed and it did start to do it but failed with this new drive in.

Did you try downloading the USB controller and Network drivers from the ASUS support site and manually install them ?
It seems those 2 drivers didn't install automatically.

Also, doesn't WizTree help identify where so much space is being used on [C] ?
All my [C] (OS + programs) partitions are less than 50 GB ...

Yes mate they downloaded but when I tried installing them I got that message about them being older than the ones I had but like I said how can they be older than what the latest ones they have put out??

The Wiz Tree does show me a whole bunch of stuff but the more one opens it up the more confusing it gets.

Just one thing though I did use the CCleaner feature > Tools > Duplicate finder but whether it was C: only or all the drives I will have to check again because there were a lot of them - duplicates. Now that would tie in with the WMP problem when I was ripping music it always had the tracks doubled up??

I would not trust a clone job if these kinds of problems cropped up.

If the OS installation on the 240GB was running OK and had all the then current drivers installed and working and then is not running OK and has drivers missing on the cloned 500GB then it seems obvious that something went south during the cloning process.

Check the 240 again to see, and if all is good there I would not spend any time trying to fix a bad clone.

Yep I agree mate it was not my usual and trusted USB to SATA adaptor I was using too and it did seem to take a very long time. Normally a clone takes about 15 minutes this one took over two hours so again I think you are right re something going belly up.

I am off to New Zealand tomorrow so when I get back I will try the 240GB again and maybe try the clone with the usual adaptor and if that doesn't work I will have to do a clean install and maybe use an image to fill in. But I don't mind installs it is the countless hoards of updates that get me.

My concern with the clone anyway is that brings across "problems" that have plagued this machine for such a long time now - although having said that even the last clean install left me with problems.

Yes, sounds like you are dealing with two sets of problems, and they are only casually related. Probably best to deal with them one at a time.

It always has amazed me that a better way of dealing with new install updates has not come up already. You know, like a package of updates or rollups for a certain time period. It's like Microsoft discourages clean (re)installs and doesn't want to do anything to make it easier.

Yep well it seems like they are making it a lot harder all round just lately eh? with that fiasco in China and then tugging the rug from under the faithful's feet by removing the IO's from Greg's tutorial ( the Heidoc site).

I know he has worked hard on the problem and made a work around re the issue but heck like you say bad enough we have to redo the whole rotten update stuff at all when some of it was resolved in part by those ISO's.

What I fid quite intriguing is that they designed and wrote a whole OS and it worked then came up with a SP1 then it is followed by generations of updates.

I found out just recently that one could clean out old Windows updates when I had a filled up drive problem and so I did this on my Win 8 desktop - my older upgraded Sandy Bridge and guess what 6GB of unwanted updates later and other clutter normally removed by CC) the machine began to run as fast as it used to. Now that is no exaggeration because I checked the before empty space and then the after empty space and how much there was in unwanted updates clutter. I actually saw the amount of updates that were to be removed so I know it is right and that took over three quarters of an hour for then to e found.

My point and thoughts are that when updates are released whether they are to be replaced or just altered they should make it so that the clutter is remove at that time. I know this might affect system restores but surely if one is making back ups of their system as one should do then this should not be a problem.

Not that I recall!
That would/should work. I'm just surprised there is not something more "automatic" or built in available.

Ok Steve I will give this a go and wiling my tie away I found the tutorial by Shawn that Intel have for drivers though now I am off my phone I cannot find it again but will give that other way a try.

Just because I still am perplexed by the Asus support drivers being older than what is installed

But the boss is stirring and I suppose I had better get on with my final packing as we leave today for Sydney then NZ..
