  1. [Help] Resetting PC only took 30 mins and didn’t delete most of my files.


    I chose to fully clean the drive, in about 30 minutes it got to 64% then I got a message saying not all of my personal files could be removed. There’s still about 200 GB worth of old files on my PC. Did I do something wrong? How can I get it fully clean the drive?

  2. Why Live Tile is updated in Windows Phone @ 30 Mins interval?

    Hi Jay..



    Thanks for response!!!



    I tried as per suggested steps, unfortunalty does not help.



    I think it is Windows OS Limitation to have tile update on every 30 mins.

    Need Serious Help: How To Record Video of What is Done on my PC?

    I suggest the following simple steps:

    1. Set the autosave options in MS Office to a low value say 5 minutes.
    2. Setup file history to autosave frequently - the shortest period is 5 mins
    3. Install Macrium Reflect Free and configure it to do a daily incremental system backup

    You should be well covered if you do the above to protect your key files.
