  1. 0 kb files lingering around on my computer


    Hi all,2 months ago I did a clean reinstall of my computer and I found that there are still 0 kb files of python and python3 lingering around on my computer even after I had already uninstalled the program and wiped my PC. It won't let me delete them as they give me an error saying that the file could not be read. How do I get rid of these files? Does it even matter if they stay on my SSD?

    :)

    Raid 0 help

    Hi all, I've followed the IRST raid installation directions and I have created myself a Raid 0 volume. Rapid storage confirms my successful migration from a system disc to a raid 0 array. I'm also able to select it as my boot device in BIOS, but what I don't understand is why it is not listed in my Drives under my computer

    In fact, my computer still lists my original C: drive with the original capacity. I feel as if I've miss an important step here and I'm unsure how to proceed.

  3. Windows 10 - Active Time 100% - Read Speed 0 KB/s - Write Speed 0 KB/s - for exactly 60 seconds

    I have recently conducted a fresh reinstall of Microsoft Windows 10 Home - none of my hardware has changed.

    I am getting sporadic freeze-ups of the operating system. These freeze-ups appear to last for exactly 60 seconds.

    I have attempted to diagnose the issue using Task Manager- under the
    Performance tab I can see the freezes coincide with Disk 0 (C0 kb files lingering around on my computer :) hitting 100% active time - for exactly 60 seconds (I can see this because the graph is '60 seconds across').

    The Active Time is 100 %, the Average Response Time is 0 ms, the
    Read Speed is 0 KB/s, and the Write Speed is 0 KB/s.

    What I have tried so far:

    • Disabling the Page file for C:.
    • Running System File Checker /SFC with administrative privileges.
    • Running Deployment Image Servicing and Management Tool (DISM)
    • Disabling several services: Windows Search and Superfetch.
    • Checked SMART status of SSD using Kingston SSD Toolbox.
    • Updated Windows using Windows Update.
    • Run Windows Troubleshooter - System Maintenance.

    What do people recommend my next steps should be?

    Computer won't turn on after sleep Mode

    Hi,

    It appears that there are corrupted system files on your computer. We suggest that you run System File Checker to repair missing or corrupted system files.

    • Press Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the command sfc /scannow and press ENTER.
    • Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

    If the issue persists, we suggest to follow the steps on how to perform
    DISM
    to fix Windows errors here.
