    Can I re-configure Disk partitions (Windows Vista)

    Got a bit further: created an ordinary yellow folder back on the "F" partition which was "home" before I tried to move it! Found my way...eventually to %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll where lies the bespoke Blue Icon with the film clip. So now I have the cosmetics sorted....just need to get...

    Can I re-configure Disk partitions (Windows Vista)

    Hmm! I seem to have messed that up! Rather than moving the Blue folder and all its contents, the Blue folder has evaporated and just the nested (yellow) folders and their contents have moved! Any ideas how I can put that right? So far I've created a "New Folder" Called it "Videos", like the...

    Can I re-configure Disk partitions (Windows Vista)

    Thanks Terry, had to open Disk Management to confirm, but yes, all four partitions are "Primary". Like your lateral thinking regarding moving some data to the Apps partition. Thinking to move both the "Videos" and "Music" folders which amounts to about 60GB. I will have to "point" Serviio (my...

    Can I re-configure Disk partitions (Windows Vista)

    Hi Terry, thanks for explaining that so eloquently! Decided to take your advice but just taking a look into "Disk Management Help", I saw this which confused the hell out of me...and sort of scared me off doing anything! The bald statement has no explanation of the terms used and as usual just...

    Can I re-configure Disk partitions (Windows Vista)

    Thanks Terry, sounds sensible...probably why I didn't think of it! I don't have much experience of partitioning but somewhere I seem to recall being told that you can "shift" space, for want of a better term, between adjacent partitions. If that's true, could I reduce the Apps partition (E) and...

    Can I re-configure Disk partitions (Windows Vista)

    Hi guys, Happy New year to you all! My old Vista system is still creaking along ... just about but I'm running out of space on my Data partition (F). I would like to re-allocate some space from my so called recovery partition "D:", to the "F:" partition, particularly since all the folders in...

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    No, I'm still running, or rather limping along with Vista! I'ts slowly dying, so I'll probably be forced to "upgrade" probably to W7. :lol: Edit: found this, second item might help you. http://www.apple.com/uk/support/itunes/install/

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    Think I would too, not just withdrawal symptoms though, anticipation of the repair bill.

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    I agree, you do get in a rut and resist making the change! Thing is, I'm getting used to this sort of "internet grazing" lifestyle that the iPad and smart phones have brought to us. I find that rather than sitting at my desk for long periods, I tend to have one or other portable device near me...

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    Hi OmarkH, yes, pretty much back to how it was before, just the odd slight quirk. For instance when the Desktop appears now, it is just blank at first, ie. just the wallpaper and an empty taskbar....then it changes to a fully black desktop before my usual wallpaper and various shortcut icons...

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    Well folks, without wanting to tempt providence, my PC appears to have smoothed down its own ruffled feathers! I have had my second 2 minute..ish boot in succession and it's rather telling that there is once again no message from 57xxSteelVine Manager saying it's lost its Mummy or that it can't...

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    Hi Mahmoud, nice to hear from you. I trust you are well in spite of your RAID problem...that would have been a total disaster for the likes of me! Maybe you have opened another can of worms for me! I have an iPad, so I suppose there would be associated drivers etc. for that, I just looked at...

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    That sounds sensible! I'm just a bit foxed as to why it's there and what might disappear with it! Before uninstalling, it may be prudent to disable first, if nothing goes bang, it's gone! Just checked Progs and features and it isn't listed, so not sure how to uninstall it anyway.:wtf:

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    Thanks Terry, uninstalling rather goes against the grain, because I have no idea where it came from, nor have I the means to re install it!:brows: Could I just "disable it" in msconfig and have the same effect? Since I had this lovely perky boot experience today, I'm really hoping that I don't...

    I think iTunes update has corrupted my MBR.

    Hello Terry, thanks for that link. That confuses the situation even more! My PC has only one 500GB disk divided into 4 partitions: C/: Operating system........and some software that insists on residing there! D/: Recovery...........This was designated by the guy who built the system for me...
