Continue copy even with errors and more

You might encounter something like "Access Denied", "The file has been transferred to another location or deleted" or some other errors while copying your files.

This is a typical problem to those Windows XP users. So what they do is just recopy all the files again but they will exclude the one with the error.

What if you have virus that you are in random folders that can't be moved/copied?
What if your old files that you don't need have random access denied files?
What if and what if?

How to continue copying files and exclude the files with error?
Here's how you do it.

What is xcopy?
Copies files and directory trees.
How to use xcopy?

XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]
[/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]
[/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z] [/B]

Look for the REFERENCE below to know the meaning of every options.

Step 1.
Click Start then click Run...(Or Simply Press Windows key+R)

Step 2.
type "xcopy [source] [destination]"

Sample 1: (For single File ONLY)
xcopy C:/Windows/System32/userint.exe E:/Backup

Sample 2: (For multiple files / folder including their sub folders)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /E

Sample 3: (For Continue Copying even Error Occurs)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /C

Sample 4: (For allowing copying encrypted files)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /G

Note: You can combine the rules/options that you like.

That's it! you now have a way to copy files that are protected, access denied, or even those that are encrypted. Hope This tip helps you. ^^

What are the use of the options?

source Specifies the file(s) to copy.

destination Specifies the location and/or name of new files.

/A Copies only files with the archive attribute set, doesn't change the attribute.

/M Copies only files with the archive attribute set, turns off the archive attribute.

/D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date. If no date is given, copies only those files whose source time is newer than the destination time.

Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will exclude all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the .obj extension respectively.

/P Prompts you before creating each destination file.

/S Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones.

/E Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones. Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.

/V Verifies the size of each new file.

/W Prompts you to press a key before copying.

/C Continues copying even if errors occur.

/I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file, assumes that destination must be a directory.

/Q Does not display file names while copying.

/F Displays full source and destination file names while copying.

/L Displays files that would be copied.

/G Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does not support encryption.

/H Copies hidden and system files also.

/R Overwrites read-only files.

/T Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes empty directories and subdirectories.

/U Copies only files that already exist in destination.

/K Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-only attributes.

/N Copies using the generated short names.

/O Copies file ownership and ACL information.

/X Copies file audit settings (implies /O).

/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file.

/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file.

/Z Copies networked files in restartable mode.

/B Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link.

/J Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files.

The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.

Windows 7 Slow Login

Are you stuck in this window for a very long time???

I came across this problem after I install my Windows 7 on my notebook. I am so excited to get a hold of my windows 7 at that time and then I sense something is not right. When I log-in to my account, I noticed that the loading takes around 20 seconds. I was not convinced that this is a hardware issue because I have all the drivers installed.

As I was surfing the internet, I saw a theme for Windows 7. I install it just to try it then suddenly when I tried to restart, I noticed that the login time speed up drastically. So I surf the internet why does this happen and come up with an answer that the login problem in Windows 7 is cause by the Desktop Background.

How to fix Windows 7 slow login / start up:

The solution is you have to change you desktop background from a "Solid Color" to any background that you like. If you really like a solid color background, you can do a workaround by creating a solid color image using Paint or Photoshop then set it as a Desktop Backgound. I don't know what is the connection of it but this solution really works. ^^

Hope that this solution help you.


Dragon Age: Origins for PC

Here I go again. ^^ I am here to show you a game that I am addicted as of now. As I am surfing the internet, I have landed to search a game for pc on gamespot. I have seen a game that really interest me.

The game is called Dragon Age. I have tried to play this game and now I am addicted to it. ^^ I have tried it because as I have seen on gamespot.com it is rated 9.5 and is also number one as of the moment.

Like the ratings of gamespot.com, I would also like to recommend you guys to play this game.

I will give you 10 reasons to play Dragon Age: Origins ^^

1. The Graphics!

I would say the graphics maybe not the best for the game but I would say that the graphics is already capable of giving life to this game. I have no problem on the graphics of the game. It is smooth but detailed one. But of course you must consider the video card that you are using. If will rate the graphics of this game, I will give a "9" for the graphics.

2. Character Creation
This is what I always look for a game. A game that you can choose what your character will be.

3. STORY!!!
You can choose different background for your character. You can choose from 6 different background of your character. So you can play again and again to know the connections of every character. ^^ This is one of the new idea for a game and this is why I create characters again and again. You will not be bored and you will not be stuck with just one character.

4. The Classes!
This is what I've been waiting for a new game that I will play. The different classes for your character. You can choose from 3 different classes with 4 different specialty for every class.
You might wonder what is the best class in this game. I have tried all of the classes in this game and I can say that it is a matter of preference. If you like an fast double wielding type, choose rouge with an assassin specialty. If you want a strength type of character, choose warrior. If you want a spell-casting character, choose a mage. Because of these class system, the game will be different everytime you play.

5. Conversation - Dialouge

The character conversation system is one of the best features of this game. If you are a gamer who does not read dialogues from a game, then these game will fit for you. The game has a voice feature that lets you just listen to the conversation, but you can still choose to have a subtitle if you still like the old-school readings. ^^ The voice of every characters fits to its appearance and attitude. Also about the dialogue in the story, you can choose what you will respond. These response may effect the story and even to the other characters likeness to you. There is a heart bar on party members, even dogs ^^, so that you will know if they like you or not. ^^

6. Level Up system

The level up system of this game is also amazing. Its just like you playing an online game wherein you can select the attributes to add every after leveling up. On this game, you can add some stats , skills, and spells when you level up.

7. Lot of Spells and Skills

Every class has a unique variety of spells. There is also an additional spells in every specialty that you will be. There are many spells to choose from so your character maybe different from your friend's character. You mix and match your skills depending on your preference to create the perfect character for you.

8. Party System

There is a unique party system on this game. You can have some party members recruited depending on your respond when they appear in the game. You can choose to get them, you can also choose to abandon them. You might want to get as many party members as you like.

You can choose 4 party members when you are playing, including yourself, but the good thing is that you can leave the excess party members and get them when you feel needing them. There is also, maybe a glitch or a feature, that all of your party member will get the experience even though they are dead and more crazy when they are not in use. So in short your party member will level up even he/she is not selected to fight. This maybe a feature so that every character can be played and not be stocked for future fights.

There is something cool about the party system. Your conversations to some NPC will give you another outcome when you are having different party members. For example: You are having a Bad attitude party member, so your party member might say some bad things during the conversation.

9. Questing

The game has a unique quest system. There are quest that you can get but others don't because of your reply to the NPC that you talk to. There are some hidden quest, there are also quest that will make you rich, some quest that will give you a party members, and some quest that will make the story change. ^^

10. Story Flow

The story flow will trully depend on you, depending on where you go from one place to another. There is always an option that you can go from here or here. The plot of the game is not just a straight line, it might be confusing but it will give you some excitement and a true adventure. In Short, in this game you are the who creates the story and who dicides what the story would be. And this is what I call MY GAME. ^_^ V

I recommend you all to play this game. A trully worth playing game. ^^ I am sure that you will love this too. ^^

This game also running smoothly in Windows 7. ^^
