Excel File Cannot Be Open From Network Share Drive

The scenario that i have is following: *. Xls file( 2003) is placed on network share drive( nt environment). Many users can access it with no problems, but some users cannot view the file even though they have the same permisssions. What do you think might be the problem? Is it possible that file is locked? Is there a limit of people to acces the file over the network?

Trying To Share Printer On A Large Network

My friend and i are roommates here at ucf. He has a printer and i dont. We agreed on sharing it but the problem is we do not want anyone else to access it. I came up with the bright idea of making a new workgroup then sharing it. He made one and then shared the printer. I then joined the workgroup with no problem. Now, when i click view workgroup computers it says that it cannot be accessed. When he does it, it works fine. I then tried to connect to his ip address but again nothing. I just finished trying sharing a folder and made him copy a shortcut to printer but when i double click it, it says the printer is unreachable and probably offline.

Software Programs For Dfs Block Level Sync And Real Time Open File Locking

We need a robust piece of software that would be able to do block-level synchronization and real time open file locking within a dfs across three separate and distinct office locations across a wan. Also, we'd prefer if the software was x64 native on a windows operating environment. Some concerns is that we don't want to run into a file limit, a file size limit, and the number of files per synchronized folder. We especially don't want any kind of wan compression scheme which would negate the benefits of block-level synchronization or a solution that would require a master-copy of the synchronized files at all times.

Sudden Issue With File Sharing On Network

I have a wireless laptop, and whenever i try to access shared documents from my main computer, it knocks me off my wireless connection. It hasn't done this before just all of a sudden. Other pc's when they are hard wired up they can get to those files no problem. I have file sharing approved on the firewall. In-fact i reset the firewall to default then made sure it was approved. Im pretty much lost as to what to do next?

Best Way To Get Max File Transfer Speed (network, Usb, Etc)

I use a laptop for my main rig (hp dv8300), and i am setting up a nas in the near future and i'm trying to come up with the best way i can get the most speed to dump data to it. It's a 945gm express chipset. I have usb 2. 0, firewire of some flavor (i can't figure out which one it is), pci card slot, express/54 card slot, 100mb nic, intel something b/g mini pci nic. Ideally i would want to get a 1000mbps nic, but since my nic is onboard i can't really swap it out. A 1000mbps usb 2. 0 nic would still limit me to the 300mbps speed of usb 2. 0. 132 mbps for express card. Right now my best idea is just to get a wirless-n mimo mini pci nic and swap it in. Unless someone has a better idea.

Usb Flash Drive Error When Double Click To Open

I have a kingston usb flash drive and formatted it to ntfs on vista. Now my question is related to xp. Every time i plug it into a xp machine it will run the auto-play but whenever i go into my computer and try to double click it, it gives me an error saying windows cannot find g:m.exe. But if i right click and select open it will open up. I am wondering why it would be giving me an error with the double click method and not with the other one. I don't even know why it would be looking for an executable file on a usb flash drive. If anyone can give some insight please let me know.

Ide Drive Through Usb - Vista Won't Open Files

So i have a hard drive out of an old laptop that crapped out. When plugged in, it powers up fine, the disk is spinning and my computer will see that the drive is there. Pop up says device is working properly, and allows me to "safely remove" it. Device manager shows it is there, giving the proper model name and such. All of this, but my computer won't let me open the drive to get the files. It doesn't show up in the my computer window. I have tried a couple of different external plug in setups, and they all do the same thing, even the ones with a dedicated power cord and two usb plugs to give the device more power.

I have been meaning to ask this for probably a year now and i always see to forget it. Is it viable to set your page file/temp in windows to a esata thumb drive to increase performance and not require the hard drive to move read/write heads around just for stuff like this? If it is an option, why don't more people do it?

Usb Drive Wont Work After Unplugging It During File Transfer

I gave this usb flash drive to a friend as a gift

Its the 8gb pico usb drive, ive had one for over a year and ive had no problems but my friends wont work after he told me he accidentally unplugged it during a file transfer on his mac. If i plug it in to a mac it wont see the drive, not even the disk utility. If it plug it in to a vista machine, it gets seen but it says "unknown device" and it wont show up under disk management either. Is there any possible way to fix it? This is a first for me since i thought you could not damage usb drives if you unplugged them during a file transfer (except for normal data corruption). Any ideas?

Hard Drive Spin Down In File Server From Sata Card

I'm putting together a file server/backup server and plan to have between 6-12 sata ii drives in it. All drives will remain single and individually accessed (i.e. No raid). The file server will continue to run vista and the drives will be in two supermicro cse-m35t-1b (5 drive hot-swap enclosure)

I am currently using an intel board with 6-sata ports (ich8dh) for the file server and through vista, am able to set the drives to automatically spin-down after about 20 minutes of no activity. This works great as most of these drives are just used once or twice a day (thus don't need to be spinning 24/7). Are there any sata controller cards that will allow windows to spin-down the attached drives (just like the intel ich8dh does)? Preferably, i am looking for a 4 or 8 port pci express card (it doesn't need to have raid). I've been looking at the marvell based supermicro aoc-saslp-mv8 since it provides 8 sata ii ports in a 4x pci express package. (~$110)

I've also looked into using a simple 2-port sata pci express sil 3132 based card with one or two sil3726 based port multipliers (1 sata connection to 5 drives, addonics ad5sapm). (~$100 for both the controller & 1 port multiplier)

The drives in the file server will probably, at most, be used 1-2 at a time, and be accessed via a single gigabit ethernet port, thus overall drive throughput really isn't a concern here. My main concern is getting the drives to spin-down, so if there is another sata controller/hba out there that costs more and allows spin-down, i'm open to that as well. Cfm

Share Hp 712c Printer Between Two Computers

How can i share an hp 712c printer between two side by side computers? One computer has a vista operating system and one has a windows xp home edition, i am going to connect a d-link router, not wireless, tomorrow. I also have a speedstream 5100 modem that i am also going to connect tomorrow with ethernet cables between the two systems. My question is, will this work? I don't have a vista compatible printer. I obviously do not know how these things work together. Any explanation you can provide will help.

Use Kvm Switch To Share A Monitor Between Two Computers

Having bought a second computer, i am, of course, anxious to network them together. Obviously it will be easier if, other than buying an extra monitor, keyboard and mouse, i can switch between looking at one computer to the other to alter ip address settings etc. The new computer has dvi output to the monitor while the old one only vga. Question 1: am i likely to do any damage to monitor, graphics cards or computers if i were to (accidentally) have both computers plugged into the monitor (one dvi, one vga) and booted them both?

Question 2: naturally, i could just use the vga output from the new computer for setting up purposes but - is there a kvm switch which can share the monitor between the two computers, one vga output, the other dvi (in the home-user price range)? Not had much success searching the net for the answer to this. Question 3: will a kvm switch that works with windows machines necessarily work with linux machines?

Hp Printer Shuts Down Connection To Usb Share Switch

I have a hp printer that is connected to mine and my collegues dell laptops via a 2 pc; 4 usb share switch, and after a document has been printed the usb connection is terminated. This is frustrating, since the port is used for our broadband modem and it means it just disconnects you from the internet at the same time. I have been on the hp site and found a document that appeared to have the answer using the toolbox function to turn off the bidirectional communication on the hp printer, but the option was grayed out and i was unable to establish whether bidirection communication was active or not. Has anyone come across this problem before?
