  1. Folder converted into blank file automatically


    A folder on my external hdd got converted into a blank file automatically without me doing anything.

    I plugged it in to upload some images on the internet when I found that my folder was suddenly a file.

    How do I revert this back? A lot of important files in there.

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Best Video Converter tool?

    First off, create a folder to only hold the videos you want to convert and then move all those files into that folder.


    Now in the Handbrake program choose Source – Folder and then select the folder you just created when you browse. Make sure you don’t open the folder, just select the folder.

    Handbrake will now go through the folder and select all the files in the folder and list them as Titles.
    Make your handbrake selections as usual and then you manually go through each Title, select it and do a Add to Queue.

    It would be nice to select all titles at once, but possibly they may add that feature later.

    Now you can just run your Queue and wait for all your files to be automatically converted.


    also you can use the batch converter: Downloads

    The option converting m4a files to wma files in windows 10 is disappeared

    • What app are you using to convert the files?
    I don't use any app to convert the files. I just copy the m4a files from my music folder. Then I paste the m4a files in my android phone drive that connected to my laptop. Then a windows pop-up that shows the option converting m4a files to wma files appears.
    You can see the windows pop-up in below picture. Now the windows pop-up is disappeared.

    • When did the issue start to happen?
    I found this problem last week. However, I didn't convert m4a files to wma files since May, 2017.

    • Were there any changes made to your device prior to the issue?
    I updated windows several times prior to the issue.

    • Have you done any troubleshooting steps so far?
    I haven't done any troubleshooting steps.

    Folder converted into blank file automatically

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
