I've had my external HD for a while now (Rock mobile disk). Last time I tried to access the data in it was a few months ago without issues. I tried using it yesterday and started to have issues. I have 600GB of data that needless to, is very valuable. It doesn't matter what machine I plug the laptop to (Vista, 7 or 8.1) I have a hard time getting them to read the HD. Once it finally decided to show up, I cannot do anything with the files. What I have done: [\*] Uninstalled drivers [\*] Ran windows Fix …

So... this happened at a LAN party. A friend was pestering me for Linux Mint. For some reason YUMI wouldn't recognize my flash drive, so I did it the manual way. sudo dd if=./linuxmint-17.1-cinnamon-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M However, it should have been: sudo dd if=./linuxmint-17.1-cinnamon-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdd bs=1M It's an ADD/mental auto-pilot sort of thing. So... the first 1.4G of my 1TB Windows 8.1 drive has been written over with a Linux Mint installer. Before, there was a 100M recovery partition and then the rest was the OS Partition. But now there's only 1 partition: the bloody installer. I'm fairly certain it's …

I have a really strange situation with my storage device. I would be really grateful if somebody could guide me through this. System details: Mac mini 2.0 i7 8GB 500GBx2 External storage: My studio Book WD 6TB (inside probably 3TBx2 raid). file format: NTFS Connected to Mac through Firewire. intermediate between mac and NTFS: TUXERA NTFS My 6TB had around 5.4 TB data in it and was running slow. I thought of defragmenting it (which I regret so much now) using stellar disk defrag. After 3 days of defrag, when it finished with "done" popup, Mac mini didnt show the …

I am trying to set ntfs permissions for a user folder such that the user has Read and Execute permissions for This Folder Only but has Full Control for All Subfolders and Files. I am using this code, which is not doing what I need: public void AddDirectorySecurity(string dirName, string userName) { DirectoryInfo dInfo = new DirectoryInfo(dirName); DirectorySecurity dSecurity = dInfo.GetAccessControl(); dSecurity.AddAccessRule(new FileSystemAccessRule(userName, FileSystemRights.ReadAndExecute, InheritanceFlags.ObjectInherit, PropagationFlags.InheritOnly, AccessControlType.Allow)); dInfo.SetAccessControl(dSecurity); dSecurity.AddAccessRule(new FileSystemAccessRule(userName, FileSystemRights.FullControl, InheritanceFlags.None, PropagationFlags.None, AccessControlType.Allow)); dInfo.SetAccessControl(dSecurity); } Can someone please offer some advice on what I need to change to get this working correctly?

I am working on an application that keeps track and uses files stored on the file system. Users are allowed to open, create, delete and move files in the file system. Meanwhile my application is not constantly running so I can't keep track of all changes real-time. Afterwards my application has to find out what file is whom (i.c. as identified in my application). The most preferred solution for the users is that the application solves every change itself. Each user-interaction is less preferred. One of my ideas was to use an attribute of a file and assign a key-value …

Hi everyone. I'd like to ak for your help with a messed up partition (probably corrupted table as I understand it). I don't have much experience when it comes to this. Here's my problem: I have a probably corrupted disk and I wanted to create a partition avoiding the bad sectors. I had no idea which app would be suitable so I used a partition magic 8 (it came to my mind first as I used it in the past). I stared it up and it showed some message about fixing my partitions automatically and I was in a hurry …

My Windows 2000 computer detected a severe virus and I was afraid that my entire computer would crash so I panicked and stupidly deleted the entire administrative user account without thinking about my files nor backing them up. I was more concerned with my installed expensive software being affected. Now that I successfully removed the virus on my other user account and am able to use all my software. I am trying to recover my lost files now. I am not sure what to do. Please advise.

Hey all, I'm as new as it gets. My goal is to extract and store NTFS permissions (files/directories), for the purpose of restoring them on-demand (using Windows XP SP3). I read all around the subject, (specially over MSDN), and I managed to make a working code via the SDDL format. After the fact, I realized that this format is not IDENTICAL to the original descriptor. As these samples: [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa379570%28VS.85%29.aspx[/url] clearly shows it won't store "Revision", "Control"... therefore it doesn't even recognize between an Empty DACL and a NULL DACL. I would like to store the descriptor as-is. which means when …

Most often, when someone talks about a filesystem or file system, they're referring to disk filesystems such as NTFS, FAT, ext2, ext3, ext4, ISO 9660 and many others but can also refer to network file systems such as CIFS (Common Internet File System aka Samba) and NFS. A filesystem is a specially-designed database of files, their disk location, definition and attributes. Everything on a Unix or Linux filesystem is a file: Directories, processes, links, programs, and device references. All files. But, is there a perfect filesystem? Distributed filesystems such as [URL="http://www.google.com"]Google[/URL]'s filesystem come pretty close. Ext4 is being praised as …
