Why, after rotating a photo from landscape format to portrait on my PC, does the thumbnail stay in landscape format even though the photo is now in portrait format?

In Windows 7 and previous Windows OS's, the thumbnail of photos rotated with the actual photo but in 10 the thumbnail does not rotate with the photo. How can I correct this?

NTFS Hibernation Locked Up?

Oct 13, 2015

I'm experiencing problems with Windows 10 trying to load. I'm unable to get past the login screen. It seems that Win is locked up on me and appears unresponsive. Trying to type my password at login screen, it just seems to sit there. After a few mins some characters appear in the password field with much delay. After all of this, I have attempted to load a live Linux distro to grab files/data off the drive to start backing up the OS and reinstall. When I went to do this, I get an error message in Linux "error mounting sdb1..... Windows is hibernated,refused to mount... Operation not permitted......" How do I get Windows 10 to load

Convert FAT32 To NTFS?

Aug 15, 2015

I recently purchased a Samsung M3 slimline 1TB hard drive to backup and create a system image of my PC onto. I plugged it in and it installed all the necessary device driver software however when I go to create a system image or backup I get this message:

Windows Backup skipped backing up system image because one of the critical volumes cannot be included for backup. Check that volume is online and is formatted NTFS.

After going into drive manager I saw that I had a volume/partition called ESP which was FAT32 and was 500MB. How do I change this to NTFS so the backup/system image works and out of interest what even is ESP? When a tick box comes up on what I would like to create a system image on, the C: drive box is ticked as well as the ESP box however they are blanked out so I have to select them.

Cannot Install On Laptop Because SSD Is Not Formatted As NTFS

Sep 5, 2015

Laptop System: Toshiba P755-S5120 / 8GB Ram / PNY SSD 240GB / Ubuntu OS. I have a new copy of Win 10 Home USB.

The latest Ubuntu is currently installed on the SSD. I tried to replace Ubuntu by installing Win 10. I can boot from Win 10 USB, enter the product key, but the 'Where do I want to install Windows' dialog box shows the warning 'Windows can't be installed on drive 0 partition 1. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS'. I have the option to delete the partitions but not format. It doesn't ask me if I want to format the SSD anywhere during the process.

What would be the steps to get Win 10 on SSD or possibly reformat the SSD to NTFS?

External Hard Disk Partition Changed From NTFS To FAT32

Apr 4, 2016

I tried to access a laptop hard disk using an adapter from a laptop. Once or twice It was successful but last time I checked it showed me files and folders with unreadable characters and it's partitions are also gone. When I checked its format I found out that it has changed from NTFS to FAT32.

When I try to open any file or folder it gives an error message saying it's not accessible and the filename or directory name is incorrect. I tried reading another hard disk to see if it's something to do with my adapter but they are all working fine. What happened or to recover the data unharmed?.

Stuck In Install Loop With Error - USB Was Formatted In NTFS Instead Of Fats32

Aug 10, 2015

I recently tried to fresh install Windows 10. I ended up getting stuck in a install loop with the error INCOMPATIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE so I tried to use a USB instead. This resulted in an error saying my USB was formatted in NTFS instead of Fats32 (even though I had just formatted it to be fats32).

My first question would be how to fix this error? Now, while trying to download Windows, I accidentally deleted my Linux partition (woops). My second question is to just delete all partitions on my hard drive and restart from scratch? I'm attempting this on a Lenovo Ideapad y510p.

How To Format And Reinstall

Dec 4, 2015

My computer is a mess and I've got new parts coming and want to format all drives before that. I have windows 7 home premium on cd with key. In addition to SSD with the OS, I have two HDD disks that I want formatted aswell.

How do I get windows 10 back? Can I make a copy or something on a flash drive and install only windows 10 without having to upgrade from win7? Maybe it's possible to do a clean install of windows 10. I read something about a factory reset function, will this clean the drives and leave me with nothing but the OS? Thats what I want to achieve in the end.If I have to format, OS is currently on a SSD drive(Kingston v300, 120gb). Is the best option to format an SSD through the OS installation? Given that it's booted from a flash drive/CD. I have backed up everything I want to keep of course and uninstallled a lot of stuff to clean things up a bit and take care of all my local game files and such.

Drivers/Hardware :: Cannot Format HD

Dec 4, 2015

I have a 4TB HD that was previously formatted that I've put into an external hd bay. When I go into Computer Management/Disk Management the hd is not listed in the top section and in the bottom section it is split into 2048 GB and 1678 GB, both "Unallocated". I want to reformat the hd into one partition but the only available option when I right click the larger partition is "New Simple Volume" and for the smaller partition there are no options available at all. Nowhere does it give me the choice to delete everything or just reformat the entire drive.

How To Change To Short Day Format

As best as I can tell, the the windows 10 date format has four options beginning with "month" and only one beginning with "day"?

My accounting software will not run unless I can get the short date format starting with day. The nearest option is 13/Aug/15 ... no option for 13/8/15, 13/08/15 etc...

Opening TS File Format

Jan 5, 2016

I have windows 10 and it wont automatically open this disk that plays this ancient video i have (2012)

I put it on an imac and it opened automatically and played the video perfectly.

But when i open it on my windows 10 PC i only get 2 files.

One labeled VIDEO.TS
One Labeled AUDIO.TS

audio.ts is empty but video.ts has a bunch of different files on it such as .BUPs .IFOs VOBs.

Windows 10 only recognizes the VOB files and i can only open them on movie maker. But the largest one is 978mbs and the second largest is 4600kbs

the largest file is the only one that "works" and it shows nothing but music

Now the video i am talking about it really a kind of slide show. a bunch of pictures with music thrown into the background.

How can i make this dvd bootable to the movie like it was on the iMac?

Apps :: How To Scan Documents To PDF Format

Oct 23, 2015

In connection with my job, I have several insurance companies asking me to send scanned documents in Portable Document Format (PDF). My Brother Printer Control Center Fax-Scan software is not yet compatible with Windows10, even in Windows7 compatibility mode. The Windows10 Fax & Scan program does not list PDF as a scan-to file conversion option. Only jpeg, bitmap, txt, etc..

Is there a way to tweak or add-on something to Windows Fax & Scan to make it scan documents into PDF format?

System Does Not Recognize (non US) Date Format

Aug 13, 2015

I am having trouble with the date format for Australia (dd/mm/yy). It seems to coincide with the Windows 10 download. While my system clock shows the date correctly and the Date and Time setting are correct both in Region and Format, third party programs do not recognise the dd/mm/yy format. For example, the Photos app show the date in mm/dd/yy format and my spreadsheet, WPS Office will not recognise 13/8 mas 13/08/2015.

Drivers/Hardware :: Cannot Format Brand New HDD

Nov 25, 2015

Purchased a WD 6TB Blue yesterday, ran disk management and created one partition using NTFS. Formatted and did its thing but it just displays the total size of the partition with RAW next to it. Tried reformatting again to NTFS but I get the error; "The format did not complete successfully".

Deleted the partition and tried to create a 2TB partition out of the drive with the exact same scenario happening again. Tried swapping between GPT and MBR with no success. Also tried a different SATA port with a different cable and same thing.

Ran Windows error checking and WD LifeGuard on Extended Test over night and both came back with no errors.

Ran Disk Part in cmd, after entering in clean i get the error; "DiskPart has encountered an error: The device is not connected. See the System Event Log for more information."
