Moving Folders To Another HD - Specified Path Is Invalid

Apr 7, 2016

I am moving my documents, videos, etc. folders to another internal HD.  I have two issues:
1. When I right-click on the folder, properties, location, and try to change back to default, it gives me a "access is denied error message".
2. When I try to change the folder to a new folder on the HD, it tells me that "the specified path is invalid".

User Folders Pictures And Films Share The Same Path

Dec 11, 2015

So my problem is that Pictures and Films folders in My Computer screen share the same path and even the same name, meaning that if I open either one a common folder will be opened.

I have tried to relocate them to different places but when I do it for Films for example Pictures folder also move to the new location. How do I divide them?

Moving OneDrive Folders And Files To New Laptop

Jan 12, 2016

I have a laptop with about 68GB of OneDrive sync'd data. I now have a new laptop which I am setting up and it will replace my old laptop.

What is the best way to do migrate all my data to the new machine?

1) Let OneDrive automatically sync with my new PC and use 68GB of my 250GB monthly allotment?

2) I could manually move the data over - as we did in the old days - and then turn on OneDrive and "hopefully" let it sync and realize that same data is on the new laptop and not download or create other copies.

Moving the data over to a new machine? How does OneDrive react?

I tried with one folder and it seems to work where it did not download the folder again or create a second copy. I tried another folder and it started downloading (syncing).

Bottom line is I'd prefer to manually move all the folders and files (copy) from my old laptop to my new laptop's OneDrive but don't know how well this will play out. Nothing on Microsoft's OneDrive sit or elsewhere on this specifically that I've found.

Networking :: Cannot Connect To Network Path On NAS

Feb 10, 2016

I have a Windows 10 Pro 64bit box as my NAS

Storage Spaces, ReFS, 2 drives mirrored
HDD sleep on idle
Hibernate/Sleep disabled

My problem is when I typically save or open a file with the Windows file dialog on any Windows 10 machine, and I try to go to that machine through the network path //MyNAS/MyFiles, it initially gives me a cannot connect or find error.Is this due to the dialog not waking up the drives on the NAS? Something is obviously asleep here, and I usually end up opening Total Commander or Windows Explorer to "wake up" the connection and then everything works. I don't mind waiting, but I'd like the dialogs to hold tight until it connects, not give me not found or cannot connect.

How To Display Full File Path In Explorer

Feb 10, 2016

There is a tutoral on this issue, but it doesn't solve the central problem, which is, where is the folder? I mean, which drive is it on?

The image shown in the tutoral gives the file path as beginning with "This PC". But WHERE on this PC?

My PC has several drives, and with Windows Explorer being increasingly dumbed down to support people who don't maintain logically arranged folder systems, life is becoming harder for the rest of us. I want to transfer individual files on Gladinet to Amazon AWS, where for cost reasons I store and share our company's 100 GB of data. But I can't transfer them if I don't know what drive they're on.

Networking :: Spontaneous 0x80070035 The Network Path Was Not Found

Sep 30, 2015

I have two computers, both run Windows 10, One runs Pro and the other Home (odd considering both were free upgraded from 7 Pro, but that is a currently unanswered for 2 month question for Microsoft to resolve...). Onto business, my main PC (Triton hereon out) spontaneously throws the 0x80070035 (network path not found) error. The other PC (Prometheus) is always on, its always connected. To add insult to injury, there is nearly always an open VNC connection (Prometheus runs headless, no monitor, hence VNC), so I know the computer is connected at all times and it is at least visible in one way as the VNC connection never drops. This problem has been going on since I got the free 10 upgrade. Both previously used Windows 7 Pro and had no connection problems with each other.

So here is what I have tried so far.
- Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP
- Restart both PCs
- Exit homegroups and make a new one
- Uninstall VirtualBox incase it was trying to use its (VirtualBox) imaginary network on both machines (both are now running it again though after it didn't work)
- Disabling / exiting VNC Viewer/Server on both servers before connecting

The only odd thing I have noticed is my router/modem in one has six IPv6 addresses for Prometheus, whilst Triton only has two. Both have one IPv4 assigned, see this image for info. If it matters, I connect to Prometheus via VNC by name 'Prometheus' instead of its local IP. Incase Windows does it a different way? remember this is spontaneous, sometimes (i'd say about 30% of the time) it connects and I can view and copy/edit Prometheous' files no questions asked, the other times it will throw this error but after a few tries it will let me in.

Can't Enter Regedit After Trying To Change Default Installation Path

Mar 31, 2016

I just bought a new laptop with an SSD and a 1TB harddrive - I wanted to change the default installation path from the SSD, to the harddrive and found this link to do it: [URL] .....

So I followed the instructions from the thread:
"Open regedit (Start > Run > "regedit"). Then find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion". Now look in the right pane. Change "ProgramFilesDir", "ProgramFilesPath", "ProgramW6432Dir" and "ProgramFilesDir (x86)". If your secondary drive letter is D:, then change them to "D:Program Files", "D:Program Files", "D:Program Files" and "D:Program Files (x86)", in that order that I just mentioned."

But now i can't install or uninstall programs, I can't open regedit to revert the changes, and the backup I made (also by following the thread) doesn't work! I can't even open up Task Manager... When i try using "run" and typing in "regedit", an error pops up saying: "Windows cannot find C:WINDOWS

egedit.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." I cannot use "run" as an administrator either. How can i reverse what i did?

Cannot Start Windows Search Service - Error 3 Cannot Find Path

Networking :: Error Code 0x80070035 - Network Path Was Not Found

Dec 20, 2015

I am unable to access one of three computers on my local network via File Explorer. I can access the other two and I can access a network local external drive.

The error is : error code 0x80070035 the network path was not found

This expands into: one or more network protocols are missing on this computer windows sockets registry entries required for network connectivity are missing...

The post from SimBy in Network Protocols says to disable netbios over TCP/IP. I don't know how to do that.

Create Shortcut Target Path Points To Wrong Program Files Folder

Oct 9, 2015

When I create a shortcut to file in Program Files, the target path for that shortcut will be to Program Files (x86), even though the start in path will be correct. Furthermore, even though the target path is incorrect and no icon is displayed for the shortcut, the shortcut still works.Shortcuts to items placed in the Program Files folder by an installer do not have this problem. It is only for files that are manually placed in the Programs Files folder by me the user, i.e. copy and pasted there.

E The Directory Name Is Invalid

Sep 6, 2015

I am running Windows 10. I had a USB stick in the computer. After an update-restart, I ejected the USB drive, and now my computer is slow after idling and there was a nagging message that asserts itself. First it was something about what do you want me with removable drive E.

I finally clicked on that message, now i get the message "E: the directory name is invalid" Now that pops up before I do any clicking on anything.

I'm not sure if I inadvertantly indexed the E drive, or if its just that the E drive must be there.

Invalid Value For Registry - Icons Invisible

Mar 27, 2015

I'm having a big time issue in Windows10, build 10041. Nothing works. Icons of Windows related things get "invisible".

Here's some screenshots:

When clicking Cortana, this happens: [URL]. She doesn't open.

When clicking the start menu: [URL]. It only gets highlighted on mouse over. Doesn't work. Right clicking it though, work with the menu as expected.

Store button: [URL]. Looks invisible. Clicking it, gives this: [URL]. Same thing for calculator. No modern apps work!

Onedrive: attempting to start it gives this: [URL]. Attempting to debug it:[URL]. Opening VS: [URL]. Result: [URL]
Trying scannow: [URL]
