1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: HDD primary partition not able to resize! on: May 20, 2015, 01:18:09 PM
@ Shades/Vurbal: I did something little similar.I started backing up every file to an Ext HDD and went to NUKE the Disk, performed LLF with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for DOS for WD hard drive.
How to low level format or write zeros (full erase) to a WD hard drive or Solid State drive

Then created new partition and restored the old backup. All went fine.
Coming to think of it, it was my fault all the time, the Restoration job which created 8 MB partition was actually the backup of Win7 on Dual boot.
It needed to be installed in Logical drive, but i choose to install it on Primary partition. Just presuming, this eventually led to create 8 MB partition.
I again tried to restore another image( have a dozen of backup images with different OS) of Win7 Pro with 100 MB partition , it went well.

For now, i am OK with Winxp, may be will switch to Win7 next week. If i get bored.

But thank you guys, for suggesting and keeping an open mind.
This experience really taught me something, i.e., never mess with partition tables and Restore jobs. It requires some understanding and little experience. I am just glad its over, with something to remember for sometime.   Thmbsup

I tried to restore my earlier back ups made by Drive Snapshot, which does sector by sector backups : it can only install on the logical drive. The  backup image cannot be restored to the  primary partition which is 7 mb in size.
It can delete and deactivate the active partition, but nothing more.

I see no way,except Nuke the disc.
Any suggestion.

@Milesahead : I am using Acronis 2012 bootable Usb created by YUMI creator.Funny I never had a problem of such nature.
I had once such a problem over Secure zone that was created by Acronis 2009, that was a real headache. Ended with few bad sectors, that was that, I won't be using Acronis in near future.
It would be great if you could post a thread in there forum and if possible, could come up with a solution.

@Shades:The 8mb partition is set as Active Primary partition.
I can't resize,  upon deleting and creating again it is locked at 8 mb.I thought of shrinking the extended partition, but I am scared if the files are gone too.
If only I had one Ext HDD with me now,  I would take the long road to re-install Winxp and then restore the image and play with it for a while With different image's I had created before.

Hello folks, today I tried to restore my Win 7 back up image to my default primary partition. Backup was made by this programme called Acronis True image 2012.
After restore, the Pc didn't boot to desktop.
I checked by using G parted tool ,there it shows 8mb got created.
Remaining 70gb was set as logical partition.
I tried to delete, create and resize both the partition, but they like to stay as it is.

I also tried using the Winxp &Win 7 boot disc.
Winxp to can't merge the two partition. It can however delete and create, but can't merge them both.  Win 7 too can't install on the 70gb partition. It seems it got locked somehow.
I used Winxp disc to go to Recovery mode and entered the fix boot and fix Mbr command ,nothing seems to work.

I can't even backup my files to Ext HDD, since that too doesn't work properly. All I can think is to Nuke the disc and start from scratch.
Pleasesee the snapshot taken.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

@Vurbal @AbteriX @worstje:  Thank you all for your reply, sorry i couldn't reply quick. Was out of town for some work.
Vurbal gave an extremely elegant explanation, i just got this post printed.
To refine my understanding of batch commands and parameter. I hope i will be able to do something with these explanation.
Thank you all for taking the trouble to explain in details.
No other forums does, what it does here.
I am glad to be here.

Thank you.

I tried Cinta notes, although it does the work, but i quite don't like its big clips that are stored in the Control Panel.
I found another though, PNotes Download, its 95% what i am looking in for a clipper
and almost got it. But anyways thank you for suggesting.
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Note/Idea taking software! on: March 18, 2015, 01:19:14 PM
Hello coders,
       i just wanted some name of a software or some suggestion which does the job of taking notes/ideas and reminders on the go.
Some name i have comeup with are Cute Reminder, which was given as a Giveaway few weeks back and Swift To-do list.
I found out Cute Reminder to be very good and extemely light where as Swift to do list was clunky inspite of all its bells and whistles.
I will take the chance and download whenever there is a new giveaway for this product.
But for now, i think you have got the picture.
A software that have hotkeys and by doing so would allow access to take note,idea or a reminder on the go.
Not like those Calender reminder, i have had enough of those kind.
I just want a note taking software that integrates hotkeys too.

Thank you.

p.s: Any freeware and shareware.

I use Irfan View for quick view of images, which also does some mild editing for me.
But to make some editing, i use Fast Stone Image Viewer, it can also be made portable, settings can be
backed up.
It does most if not all the functions u mentioned.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Diffference between Switces and Parameters in Batch file? on: January 29, 2015, 11:50:44 AM
Hi folks, i want to understand some differences between Switches and Parameters. I usually make batch files for compressing files into rar and zip
and opening different application to run. It works fine. But lately when i dig more about making batch file, i come across this term called Parameters.
I hardly do use it and i want to know from some experts what does it differentiates from Switches.
I google and try to get some definitive explanation but there are tonnes of it and i am not able to put one simple definition in my head.

I found one site that explains Parameters:Command line parameters
Quote
Batch files can only handle parameters %0 to %9

%0 is the program name as it was called,
%1 is the first command line parameter,
%2 is the second command line parameter,
and so on till %9.

What do i understand about %0, and %1 till %9. How does it can be applied in batch file.

Any suggestion from experts would be greatful.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Some unknown webpage opens itself after starting my PC! on: December 17, 2014, 10:10:45 AM
Thank you Shades also OP for providing some assistance, i only had RKill v2.4.5 and Cleaner v1.2.8 , so i proceeded to download JRT AdwCleaner and also used CCleaner and a performed a regscan their. So far i havn't noticed any change in my PC and those annoying pages has stopped popping. I'll take that as problem fixed. I just don't like any add-ons on my browser. It might help some people, but i make a backup of my bookmarks of Firefox,Outlook and Chrome and these add-on acts as an obstacle their.

JRT v6.4.0 Download
RKill v2.4.5 Download
Cleaner v1.2.8  Download
AdwCleanre v4.105 Download
CCleaner v3.08.1475 Download

But i'll still not use anti-virus lol, its not that i m not heeding your opinion, it just slows my pc. I have a decent pc with dual core , 2 GB ram and 3.0 Ghz processor. Whenever i'll have a drastic situation , then restore would the way to go. But these kind of annoying things are rather best fixed and opt to a drastic restore.
Thank you guys.
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Some unknown webpage opens itself after starting my PC! on: December 16, 2014, 07:17:36 AM
Hello folks,
       lately i noticed , after when i boot up my pc , i open webpage to browse and check my mails. But i noticed after some time like about 30-40 mins
 some webpages opens it by itself. There name are mentioned below.
Quote

They open in Internet Explorer and in Mozilla Firefox, sometimes different links but it opens at the same time.
Since i have a habit of downloading some stuffs from internet late at night, i usually restart my pc so that unknow program is not consuming my memory and leave the
download to complete till morning. When i wake up in the morning the same webpage's open in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, those webpages contains
some video about weight lose which plays by itself. But i notice my download is not complete, it consumes extra bandwidth.

I know i don't download adware or some useless junk from the net. I had my share of experience, so i think those junk must be downloaded by my other family
members. So what do i do to stop this, do i perform a reg scan , i don't use Anti-Virus, it just slows my PC. I have backups and whenever i face a problem i do a
restore. So what do i to stop this anonymous webpage from opening by itself and how did it get in the PC.

Any suggestion is welcomed.

I tried everything mentioned in the voting poll list, but still find the default Windows Explorer unbeatable. LMAO
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: IrfanView Shell Extension on: November 01, 2014, 12:55:55 PM
Thank you for the heads up.
But i rarely use any plugins for Irfanview, i use it strictly for image viewing and making short quick avatars for forums,  and also for image conversion
combined with Faststone Image Viewer.
Nothing beats this combination, even with or without plugins.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Game ScreenCapture by FRAPS ?! on: October 19, 2014, 01:38:03 PM
Hello folks, i am using FRAPS for capturing game. It records in avi file and after recording the game,when i further proceed to play the video in KM Player or VLC in fullscreen , it doesn't cover the entire screen, the left and the right part are black.
Please see the picture for what i mean.

Screenshot of image of the video when played in fullscreen. (Image viewed in IrfanView)

19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How can i achieve this kind of video effect! on: October 13, 2014, 12:16:35 AM
I'm still fuzzy on what you are doing.
I'm familiar with the NCH audio SDK, and I understand their methodology. They're very much into broad usage.
If I'm reading you right, you should be able to do all of that in the NCH software that you are using already. You just need to adjust the timeline.
Check their documentation. I checked, and that software you are using can do video.
Basically, you should only need to insert what you want in the time line.
Most DAW and NLE software works very similarly. I wrote my own software to work similar to a lot of DAW software.
I have already completed the presentation, all i want now is to insert another video with small effects before the slideshow starts.
I am taking a look on some NLE Softwares.

@40hz: yeah i think people half here hasn't understood what i meant. But i'll try elsewhere.
@Renegade: i am using NCH PhotoStage Slideshow Producer Professional v2.52, this slideshow application can add videos, music and images in its timeline and sync them to the slider position or anywhere i choose, its a little versatile tool. I found it useful to my need.

I tried my hand at Adobe Flash Professional CS5 , and i had to learn a lot of of smorgasbord of information which was a turn off for me. Lot of learning curve required, although it could creat a swf video and simple vector art movies to my interest but its output was just limited to swf file.
Quote
NCH PhotoStage Slideshow can create the finished project to avi, mp4 ,fla for youtube or make a DVD movie.
I already completed my presentation and i wanted to add a little video effect before the slideshow begins to make it professional and  factual.
Thinking now, i just want a small and simple video effect and not content creation , that is already done.

But people around here are great at suggesting software and discussing some latest subject.
To be frank i think i asked at the wrong forum, but i am not disappointed.

Hello friends,
            last time i asked how i could loop a music to extend it for a long time. That is solved,this time i want some suggestion on how can i achieve something like this, please download the attachment, its a video , before the presenter starts discussing some topic on some subject this kind of video happens before he speaks or after.
I do not want that same kind of effect, but rather much,much simple than that.
  I want something simple inserted in my presentation to make it much more convincing, influential and factual.

Hope you understood it, i don't think Adobe Flash Professional CS5 can achieve that. Can someone help me, some video editor.
Video download link.
Thank you.

Ps: The file is 3 mb and i have uploaded, please download from the link.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: extend a mp3 music! on: October 09, 2014, 12:41:13 AM
Using the "ReplayGain" function of the .mp3 format, you can do a lossless reduction of gain, that is, if your presentation software supports the ReplayGain function.  It's just a tag in the mp3 header, so any mp3 tag editor that supports the ReplayGain field will do:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReplayGain

Mp3Gain can apply the same sort volume normalization via psychoacoustic analysis that the ReplayGain function does, and does a handy job of it, whether on Windows, Mac or Linux.  The only caveat is that it manipulates the file directly, so it's technically not lossless though it is reversible:
i was able to achieve both the extension of 17 sec sound to 3 min and reduction of the volume by Envelop tool and i got the desired results.
For a simple and free tool like Audacity,it does more than those expensive application. Although not underestimating them, but sometimes some
good things come for free.
I got what i wanted for free. Anyways thank you all for your reply, i got some insight in this matter and will help other when the need arises.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: extend a mp3 music! on: October 02, 2014, 11:48:12 AM
My software does it (mostly). Send me the file and I'll get it back to you looped for 3 min exactlly.

What you're asking for can only be done in looping software or a DAW.

Some good examples of software that is well suited are:
For the volume reduction, that's a bad question. You need to know where it will be mixed, and the best thing to do is to mix it in there with the volume reduced.
Thank you Renegade for extending your hand.
But i already looped the music and converted the music to wav and further converted it to mp3 by using iWisoft Free Video Converter.
The only thing remaining is to lower the volume of the music.

@tomos : Thank you for the link, i am checking on it.

Here is the music:

25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / extend a mp3 music! on: October 02, 2014, 10:09:56 AM
Hello! i have a 17 sec mp3 file, that i want to insert into a slideshow presnetation , which is 3 min's long.
Is there any application, that can make a 17 sec music last till 3 min.
What i mean is repeat that same music over and over again like a loop for 3 min. Also can i remake the entire music with the volume slightly reduced.
Few programs come to my mind and one is Audacity.
Hope it is understandable.
