  1. Safe way to move files/folders


    Hello,

    My two-month-old Dell G7's OS(CSafe way to move files/folders :) has only 64GB free of 219GB. This is my first gaming laptop with the SSD/HDD combination; I now realise that I should have directed some files and folders to DATA(DSafe way to move files/folders :) from the beginning. I have begun to Move some and I get error code 80002005, w/o explanation as to why the transfer failed.

    My first question: Which files, folders, apps, etc., can be Moved to DATA(D) and which ones must/should remain in OS(CSafe way to move files/folders :) ?

    Also: How do I troubleshoot why the error code appeared?

    I did successfully move some picture and music files, but doc, program and apps either fail, or I am afraid to try...

    Any suggestions will be enormously appreciated!


    Thank you!

    ?? 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

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.

  4. Safe way to move files/folders

    Is there a way to collapse "redundant" folders in file explorer?

    HI Dillyjb97,

    The Navigation Pane Tree of your File Explorer is designed to work as how you have described it on your post. It doesn't have an option to expand the items in Folder 1/Folder 2/Folder
    3 view. However, you may enable some options on your navigation pane to automatically show the folders within a folder without having to double click it. Just click the drop-down option on the Navigation Pane and tick the other three options as shown
    in the photo below:

    You may also set the single-click option to open an item in your File Explorer. Here's how:

    1. Open File Explorer and navigate to View > Options > Change folder and search options.
    2. Under the General > Click items as follows, tick the
      Single-click to open an item (point to select)
      .
    3. Click Apply, then OK.

    If the above options won't work for you, then you may send this as a suggestion through our
    Feedback Hub. This way, our software engineers will be able to look into your suggestion. Please follow the steps provided in Send
    feedback to Microsoft with the Feedback Hub app
    to submit your suggestion.

    Please let me know if you need further information.

    Regards.
