Security :: File Cleanup Operation - Reinstall Windows Defender

Dec 19, 2015

I was performing a File Cleanup operation and it included something call Windows Defender. I always click to delete everything it displays. So I did and it deleted Windows Defender. I have since learned what it is and want to reinstall. I do not understand why Microsoft would allow you to delete a part of the system from the file cleanup screen? But it did. How can I reinstall?

Remove All Volumes Of Dynamic Disk And Convert It Back To Basic Disk And Format

Nov 5, 2015

I have a configuration where win 10 is installed on SSD but the Users folder is on a dynamic disk on HDD and the linking is made by a hard junction link from C: to D. I have removed paging on D as well as protection. Hence, I am able to remove all volumes of the dynamic disk and convert it back to a basic disk and format it.The problem is that I would like to keep all my installed programs (and settings, preferably). I have copied the Users directory to an external disk and copied them back to D after conversion. This seems to lead to a nonfunctional situation where I cannot even add a new user and most programs (even not all windows tools) do not work.What would be the best approach to avoid reinstalling the programs and to keep existing users?

No Boot Disk Has Been Detected Or Disk Has Failed

Aug 25, 2015

So, after about 2 weeks of experiencing Windows 10 I've decided to revert back to Windows 8.1, since I was more experienced at it. So I followed every step to downgrade the system, waited for about a few hours, then I noticed that when Windows restarted, it somehow went to an "automatic repair" loop. I've tried literally everything there was so I can get it running again, but nothing seems to work. But, there was only one option, in which I feel like an idiot to try out.

I went to Command Prompt and typed in diskpart.exe, then enter. I then typed in LIST DISK, then SELECT DISK SYSTEM, and finally CLEAN. Since I thought at the time that CLEAN works like resetting the PC, I rebooted it again, and I came to an error message saying: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.Is, or will there be any other way to start my PC in a condition like this? If I'm missing any other details then feel free to ask.

Disk Is Not Bootable

Jan 29, 2016

I have a folder structure (see below) that is created after upgrade from W7 to W10. In my previous question a day ago it was confirmed that it could be used for creating W10 installation media. So I don't want to repeat how it was created. It was created automatically and it is 3GB in size.

My question: I burned files and folders to DVD using native W10 burn files to disk method. The disk is not bootable. The structure on the root of the disk is exact as in Windows folder on the pic. Did I miss the option for making it bootable? Or it should be bootable just by burning the content to DVD?

Install From OEM Disk?

Oct 25, 2015

I have had no success in installing Windows 10 as an upgrade to Windows 7 on my newly built system. What I intend to do tomorrow is to install from the OEM disk which I just purchased for $117.14 from A...... I may return the Windows 7 disc ($61) for refund if it is successful. If not the Windows 10 disc goes back for refund and I will keep Windows 7. Yes, they will issue full refund and free return shipping no questions asked. That is an additional $56.14 to acquire Windows 10 (including a disc) but worth it to me I'd cross my fingers but those from my planet only have one digit per limb.

Won't Boot To USB Nor Disk

May 3, 2015

So I have a Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5303 that has had windows tech preview installed on it. But when I tried to boot into it, it said that the windows signature wasn't correct and it would continously going into that window. I then tried to install a newer version of the tech preview and ubuntu, but neither succesed (they were on usb.)

I also tried to install Windows 7 by a disk, but that didn't boot to either. I pressed F12 to boot into the boot order, select to boot into usb or disk and neither worked. I set usb to the first option and it didn't even boot to the usb. It might be the usb's that might not be bootable fully, but on my win7 pc i got all of them to successfully be read as bootable.

I booted into the bios serveral times and set the boot mode to CSM mode and UEFI mode but neither would boot from the usbs or disk. I have the InsydeH20 Setup Utility BIOS on my PC.

Oct 10, 2015

For some reason whenever I open Task manager it says that 100% of my Disk is used, this can be even if all the processes add up to like 2mb or if avast! is running and using 50mb. It will say 100% Disk Usage either way.I sent my HDD back to DinoPC.com a few months ago and they said nothing was wrong with it.

I have 80gb SSD used as cache, too, but can't install it here, because this disl is showing like just 10gb on disk select step.

Installation :: Recovery USB Disk

Mar 5, 2016

I am trying to create a recovery USB drive from which I can install Windows 10 fresh, if needed. Or quickly restore system images in case of a drive issue. There are a couple of things I am not clear about.


I have an ASUS laptop that came with Windows 8.1, UEFI (upgraded to Windows 10 at the moment). Initially, I created a Windows 8.1 recovery USB and reinstalled Win 8.1 using it. From what I understand, the 100MB EFI partition is normally the first one. On restoration, the following was created

305 MB Win 8.1 system partition
100 MB EFI
C drive
Manufacturer recovery partition

When it upgraded to Win 10, it ended up with the following partition structure

305 MB Win 8.1 system partition
100 MB EFI
C drive
450 MB system partition (I believe this is Win 10 system partition)
Manufacturer recovery partition


The trouble is, now when I create a Windows 10 recovery USB drive, it really creates just a rescue drive (< 1GB in size) even though the 'copy system files' option is selected. I believe a recovery USB drive needs at least a 16GB drive. Not sure what is happening here?!!!

Also, is there a way to make Win 8.1 recovery create the system partition adjacent to the C drive so it can resize it to 450 MB during the upgrade? Or maybe create a 500MB partition beforehand that Win 8.1 uses during recovery and later is upgraded to Win 10? Can I create the partitions beforehand using GParted Live USB and expect the Windows recovery process to use them?

Pc Install Disk Does Not Recognize SSD

Aug 10, 2015

I want to clean install Windows 10 on another hard drive. When the custom dialogue comes up and it asks me which hard drive I want it to go on to, it does not give me the hard drive I want to put it on as an option. It is a 160 GB SSD. Windows 10 was registering it as a removable drive. I have a dual boot system and Windows 7 does not register it as a removable drive. It' s been working well as in internal drive for a couple of years until this Windows 10 thing.

Networking :: Disk Spikes To 100%

Dec 31, 2015

since not too long, it takes 5 minutes to my pc's disk to go back to low percents. It takes around 5 minutes when I start the PC to go back low and sometimes it spikes back up to 100%.

The program i see the most going up is System and Compressed memory. I disable supertech and ''windows search'' each time I start my pc, I turned of all the notifications options except for app notification and I turned off the cloud-based protection but it still happens.

Installation :: How To Wipe The Whole Disk

Sep 20, 2015

I am a total UEFI n00b, only having one PC with it all others being legacy BIOS systems. I know my way around BIOS and have now familiarized myself with UEFI settings, I think that in settings and how to change them / what they do.

My issues are with a clean install wiping the whole disk, and to understand the partitioning. This PC had an OEM German Windows 8.1 which I upgraded to 8.1 Pro, then replaced the German 8.1 Pro with an UK English one simply by clean installing a retail 8.1 Pro on top of the German one, not wiping the disk but the "traditional" way which simply moved the German OS to Windows.old folder which I later removed.

The UK English 8.1 Pro was later upgraded to 10 Pro Build 10240, further to builds 10525, 10532 and finally now to 10547. Now I would like to start from scratch, clean install totally wiping the disk.


Why three recovery partitions (white highlight in screenshot above). I understand the last one, it's the manufacturer's recovery partition which allows me to restore the original OEM German Windows 8.1. But why the two others?How do I proceed with clean installing Build 10547 wiping the whole disk? I tried it, got to disk tools in setup, removed all other partitions but the dialog didn't let me to delete the partition C: (yellow highlight)Essentially I would like to start from this situation (screenshot from this TF tutorial), whole disk unallocated space, partition it as I want to and install Windows. If this was a BIOS system I could easily do it, the Windows Setup Disk Tools dialog creating the System Reserved automatically when I create the first partition in that unallocated space, but UEFI seemingly lets me to delete all other partitions but not the C:

I have recent system images allowing me to restore this functioning system anytime I want to, making experimenting easy.

Performance :: 100% Disk Usage For OS

Oct 29, 2015

I am running Windows 10 Pro. Over the last couple of days, for some reason, the OS reports 100% disk usage, even when no application is apparently running. It was quite alright a few days ago, but troublesome over the past 2 days. I had assumed it was running some background task, and would become normal, but the abnormally high disk usage persists even after the machine has been running for half an hour.

In this period, no Windows updates were installed, and only a scheduled checkpoint was created 4 days ago. If I try and restore to the checkpoint during boot, I get an error, saying the PC needs to be repaired. If I try it from the recovery option in Windows 10, it does not shut down for a restart, just keeps on the blank screen saying "Initializing restore". The entire time, according to the indication light, the disk seems busy.

I tried disabling superfetch and background intelligent transfer service, but did not work. The spike in disk usage is not specific to anything, sometimes it is the system, other times the malware service...

I do not wish to reset the laptop, as I had quite a few things installed, but I do not have the installation media for those anymore, and so would not be able to install them again after the reset.I have the installation iso for Windows 10. The laptop is Dell 17R SE 7720. I had upgraded to Windows 10 Pro almost 2 months ago, and it had been running fine.
