  1. Deleted files acting strange


    So when I delete my files, they go to the recycle bin. But they also leave remnants behind which properties shows to be 0kB in size. I can't delete this remnant. This happens with pictures, folders, everything. It goes away when I delete it, sure. But once I reboot or switch users it comes back. I already tried repairing my recycling bin. Any solutions?

  2. ACT Pro 2013 will not open in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    The most likely causes on a standalone are a damaged or invalid .pad file or SQL is not running, or is damaged.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if the issue persists.


      • Click your Windows Start button, choose Run and type in actdiag.


      • When ACT! Diagnostics comes up, click Databases, the Database List.


      • Locate your database in the list, right-click on it and select Detach. Make sure you know the filepath to your database before detaching it.


      • When the database has been detached, open My Computer (or Windows Explorer) and browse to the location of your database.


      • Locate the .PAD file for your database [database name].pad and delete it.


      • Reopen ACT!...you will get a message that the last database opened cannot found, then will be taken to the Open Database dialog box.


      • At the bottom of this box, change the Files of Type to .adf, browse to the location of your database and double-click on the .adf file for your database.


      • You will get a message that ACT! will verify your database, click OK and ACT will reattach your database to SQL and create a new .pad file.

      • Hope this helps.

    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.

  4. Deleted files acting strange

    Screensaver system acting strangely.

    1909 (OS Build 18363. 1316)

    A couple of screensavers which I added a while ago no longer work.

    In Screen Saver Settings two of those listed are no longer installed on the PC. If I select one of them, pressing Settings or Preview has no effect, I can't use that saver.

    If I select the other one, the strange image shown in my previous thread appears



    Deleted files acting strange [​IMG]


    I have spent a lot of time searching for that image on the PC but can't find out where it is.

    Is there some reset function in the system which won't mean having to re-install my many programs and files ?
