ANSWER: A manual installation of the operating system would involve running a 'high touch' of the OS, updates, drivers, and applications. Once this is performed, any WinPE USB that is configured properly would allow you to capture an 'image' of this ...

If I format my laptop will software packages such as Microsoft Office (Microsoft Word, Power Point, etc.) be deleted? Yes. If so can they be recovered after deletion? No. Unless you have an old-style hard drive that doesn't erase things you delete. But even then, it's tough to recover the data stored in the registry. It's hard enough that I'd ...

In very technical terms, No, formatting doesn't delete everything. But practically, unless he'd doing some advanced data recovery, if he looks on the drive for any files, and the drive is formatted, he won't see any files there. And if it's a 150GB drive, the drive comes up as having 150GB free. If you want to really wipe the drive so data is unrecoverable ...

In simple words: Formatting a partition just changes some information on the partition table and marks the space as available, deleting it just marks it as free space, but neither actually zeroes it. See this other answer for info on deleting files. Since the information isn't completely deleted, you can recover it again using recovery tools like undelete. ...

In the simplest terms, if you format your laptop's hard drive you will erase all the contents of that drive and your drive will be empty. All your programs and data will be gone. Will they be recoverable? Again, in the simplest terms, no, they cant be recovered. Now to get more advanced. Technically speaking, a standard format of a drive does not erase ...

Formatting your hard drive means erasing every single piece of date written on it. So jep, your software (and your data) will be deleted. For this purpose, there are many backup & restore programs out there (some are free!). Some have the ability to restore only several parts of a backed up archive, your Word and Powerpoint for example. Also, if you plan ...

> much more wasteful of disk space - there will always be differences in efficiency between filesystems. And this will inevitably show as you get closer to maximum capacity of similarly sized disks. Just a difference on allocation block size will make a huge impact, e.g. lesser efficiency when you have a lot of small files and a comparatively large ...

Make sure your page formatting is the same. If one has significantly larger margins, it may mess with the table formatting. Also when you paste, try the keep source formatting to see if that resolves the issue.

The formula you put in for conditional formatting depends on the address of the active cell at the time you set the conditional format. So if the active cell is E5, and the cells before it and after it are E4 and E6, the formula would be something like: =OR(E5/E4>1.5,E4/E5>1.5,E5/E6>1.5,E6/E5>1.5) Excel will automatically adjust the formula as ...

When you paste, excel converts unquoted tabs into column breaks and unquoted line breaks into row breaks. This is why if you directly paste in content where a quote immediately follows (a) a line break, (b) a tab, or (c) the beginning of the file, your spreadsheet may not behave as expected. To solve this, you'll want to replace all the extra tabs with a ...

To be clear, I was having the same issue when trying to format and reinstall Win 7 Ultimate on the custom machine I built a couple of years ago. It wouldn't allow me to make any changes to the ...

There's a couple ways you could handle this. You can do exactly what you're talking about by slipstreaming the updates in to the Windows 7 install. The right and proper way to do this is using Microsoft provided tools, such as WAIK, and building an image. I think both these methods are heavy handed for a small business. Give WSUS Offline Update a try. You ...

Your text includes some carriage returns or line breaks. You can remove them in one go with a simple VBA procedure. Be sure to save your sheet before following the steps below. (You'll want a backup in case this does something you don't expect and mangles your data.) First, select the entire column of URLs. Then, open the VBA editor by pressing Alt+F11, ...

The allocation unit size will make very little if any noticeable performance difference here. Too large of a size can lead to inefficient usage of storage space if you have many small files. Stick with the default and let the SD card controller handle block management and buffering -- that's what it's there for anyways. The way to get the best performance ...

I would try using a GParted Live CD. You can download an iso from http://gparted.org/livecd.php. Burn it to a CD and boot your computer off of it and try reformatting it. If that doesn't work, try recreating the partition table.

If the file table was corrupted you would not see any files on it directly. I am pretty sure most of tour data are kept on the disk. This is because it is physically has not been erased. If so, it can be restored. You will need to run a specific recovery software. It searches for the chains of data which are supposed to be the same file(s). I mentioned here ...
