The link above, http://serverfault.com/q/446127/286236, pretty much covers this, but this question: How do I run the Windows 7 Explorer shell with Administrator Privileges by default?, seems to make it much more clear that it's just not convenient to run explorer as an Administrator as of Win 7. However, there was an answer without much attention, ...

If by LBA you mean the logical sectors: Convert them to filesystem clusters (e.g. my system has 8 sectors per cluster): C:\>fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo c: ... Bytes Per Sector : 512 Bytes Per Cluster : 4096 ... C:\>set/a 13091568 / (4096 / 512) 1636446 Use fsutil volume querycluster: C:\>fsutil volume querycluster c: 1636446 ...

This information is accessible through the Defrag API. Third-party defragment tools might expose it. On recent Windows systems (8.1 works, 7 not tested) you can use fsutil to query it: C:\>fsutil file queryextents example.txt VCN: 0x0 Clusters: 0x2 LCN: 0x18f85e There is also another subcommand that dumps all information for all data ...

This error appears when you try to access a portion of a file which is locked by another program using LockFile. Examples include database software locking portions of the database container affected by a transaction, e-mail clients performing an operation on a mail inside a mailbox file, et cetera. This technique allows multiple processes/threads to access ...

I did the exact same screwup as you did, overwriting the boot sector, the partition table, and a large portion of the data partition. The good news is that I managed to salvage most of it. I didn't know of any tools to do this in linux, which would have been preferable, other than dd + grep, but a friend gave me a tip about this tool. It scans through a ...

Also came across this old thread and thought I'd share my answer... Check if the USB set to fat32. If so, I think the max file size is 2gb and install.wim is around 2.57gb. Try formatting the USB to ntfs and try again. This worked for me.

for those who might google this up in the future: I just found out that in Linux, one can do ntfsls -iaR /dev/sdb1 -i = show inode (i.e., MFT record no.), -a = display all (no idea what it does but it can't harm), -R = recurse into subdirectories, /dev/sdb1 is the partition device file or an NTFS image file. This produces a nice long greppable list of ...

You can simply wipe first 1 MB of your USB stick: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=1M count=1 and then reformat it to FAT32 again. Be careful though: make sure that /dev/sdb is really your flash drive, or you will kill contents of your real hard drive!

As described in this How-To Geek article, the information used to determine which files are safe or not is stored in the Zone.Identifier ADS (alternate data stream). The text you need to include on there is: [ZoneTransfer] ZoneId=3 I'm sure there are plenty of ways of doing so, but one way of editing the ADS is to launch notepad [filename]:Zone.Identifier ...

I also do some research about this question. Here is the results I discovered. The folder size containing hardlinked files in NTFS may be considered in three different meanings: Size including sizes of all hardlinked files (which is shown by WE). Size of unique files only in terms of the current folder. Size of unique files only in terms of the whole ...

I think I've experienced the same issue (corrupted partition table from a failing ddrescue'd NTFS drive (messed up "fdisk -l" but correct "parted", mount command would fail with Failed to read last sector (1953520001): Invalid argument HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm ...

I attempted the various solutions in this thread, all without success. What did work, however, was booting up my laptop with Ubuntu Linux on a USB stick, plugging the HDD into the laptop via another USB port, and opening the HDD in Ubuntu Linux. From there, it was a simple drag and drop operation to move my video directory back to the top level. Done.
