    All the files on my computer are going into the operating system


    All the files on my computer are going into the operating system, I can't figure out why. The computer, for this reason, is running out of storage faster then it should. Its an Asus x51o0a Vivobook S. I have looked for posts about this problem multiple times, finding nothing.
    Thanks -

  3. Error: "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system"

    Hi Stephen,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the operating system. Now that you have me with you let me take care of this.

    Do let us know if you are able to see Windows 7/ Windows 10 operating system while rebooting the device?

    As you are unable to boot the operating system, this issue might have occurred when the boot files are missing or corrupted.

    I suggest you re-built the boot rec by following the below commands and check if it helps.
    You will have to use Windows 10/7 installation media to follow the steps to boot into Recovery Environment and try to rebuild BCD.

    Step 1: I suggest you to create an installation media for
    operating system using the media creation tool

    If system boots to Windows 10:
    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool


    If system boots to Windows 7: Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files)

    Step 2: After preparing the installation media, insert it hard reboot the device and follow the below:

    • Boot into Windows Recovery Environment using the Windows 10/7 installation media.
    • Click on Repair your computer.
    • Click on Troubleshoot and in the Advanced options.
    • Select Command Prompt. Type the following commands into the prompt and press Enter key after each command.
    • bootrec /fixmbr

    • bootrec /fixboot

    • bootrec /scanos

    • bootrec /rebuildbcd
    5. Restart the computer.

    NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting
    from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of booting the operating system for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    in Windows 10 Support
    All files go to Download: In Windows 10, when I try to open a file within a page or open an attachment it always goes to the Download folder rather than opening. This to say the least is frustrating. This never happened when using Windows 8.1. Is there any way to prevent this happening? 41652
