    File Explorer Keeps Refreshing and slows file transfers

    Just to repeat, I'm using several WD Black 2TB SATA 3 drives to store the MP4 files on the Home Server. I'm using multiple 4TB WD MyBook devices to back up the MP4 files. I never had an issue with MSFT's File Explorer until I got involved in this Plex Server streaming movie adventure. What...

    File Explorer Keeps Refreshing and slows file transfers

    Yes, there is 1000+ files in one folder. I guess another workaround would be to make some sub-folders and limit each one to a few hundred files. The problem was "livable" on the system with WD 2TB Black drives but became a real drag when I started to use the WD MyBook for Backing up.

    File Explorer Keeps Refreshing and slows file transfers

    Is there some way to tell W8.1 File Explorer to stop trying to refresh the folder information? I have a folder with hundreds of MP4 files stored on a WD MyBook 4TB. As I try to add more files to the MyBook it takes 4 times longer that is did at the start when there were only a few files in the...

    No Raid is not turned on in the BIOS. Yes, I did boot the EaseUS offline boot that's the WinPE I mentioned above.

    Windows 8.1 only "sees" Sata_0 and Sata_1?

    One more piece of information - when I boot into WinPE it sees all the drives! So it would appear there is something going on with Windows that is causing the problem. A little more info: Windows does not like me to use both port 0 and port 1 at the same time. Either 0 or 1 works for the...

    Windows 8.1 only "sees" Sata_0 and Sata_1?

    No the drive does not show in Disk Management. All of the drives I have tried to use in Sata3_3 and Sata3_4 are partitioned and formatted and are being used or have been used in other W8.1 systems. So the drives are ok. I've swapped Sata cables so they are not the issue. Don't know how to...

    Windows 8.1 only "sees" Sata_0 and Sata_1?

    I had been running this system - ASRock Z97X Killer MB and Windows 8.1 - for several weeks with an SSD Connected to Sata_0 and a Raptor connected to Sata_1 with no issues. I also had a DVD Burner connected to Sata_5. Again no issues. Today I connected a second SSD to Sata_1 and moved the...

    Solved How do I keep Internet Explorer "Frequent Blocks"?

    Thank you. I guess I'm obsessed with the @#$% cookies. I turned off delete history in IE and CCleaner and the Frequent Blocks remain. I don't know how long IE will keep the history but I can deal with that as you have shown. Thanks again.

    Solved How do I keep Internet Explorer "Frequent Blocks"?

    Internet Explorer has this nice feature that shows the sites you have visited most frequently under "Frequency" when it starts up - I'm using "Use new tab" as the default start screen. Unfortunately, whenever you tell IE to Delete Browsing History it clears the Frequency blocks. I suspect...

    Solved Basket of Eventlog Warnings at boot time?

    Just a follow up to all my issues stated above, I cleared the Crucial MX100 512GB SSD and set it to the GPT format. I installed W8.1 using the ISO download that I converted to a USB Flash Drive and did a fresh install of W8.1 on the Crucial MX100 512GB SSD. All the bad things that were going...

    Solved Basket of Eventlog Warnings at boot time?

    I must be obsessive or have too much time on my hands when it comes to Event Log Errors and Warnings. I have W8.1.1 running on three systems and the only one I still have unexplained routine boot warnings is the ASR Z97 Extreme6/4790K that I cloned from a ASR Z77 OC Formula/3770K system. Every...

    Solved OneDrive folder on PC?

    That's ok, I just installed OneDrive on a W7 system and your tutorials came in handy. As a matter of fact, at first blush I think I like the W7/W8 approach better than the W8.1 version. Anyway, Microsoft knows best and I'm sure I'll figure out why I like the imbedded W8.1 version better...

    Thanks everyone for the information. I think I've got it. Brink, The tutorials you suggested are for W7 and W8. I have read all your W8.1 tutorials since that is what I'm using and am OK with what is going on once I set OneDrive to make everything available offline. What had me confused...

    Solved OneDrive folder on PC?

    Dumb question - what is the purpose of the OneDrive Folder under C:\User\Myname\OneDrive? I know I can save files directly to OneDrive (in the cloud) or I can move/copy stuff to the OneDrive in the cloud. OneDrive then Syncs the cloud stuff to the User OneDrive folder. What's the point? Just...

    Solved How do I get to "Select Preferences" for OneDrive in W8.1

    Yes, I found those settings. They are all on or off. This is the Article I found Googling stuff on OneDrive. I suspect this is referring to the OneDrive App for W7 since I can't find anything that lets me do what Trick 1 is showing?! https://clouddock.co/7-onedrive-tricks/

    Solved How do I get to "Select Preferences" for OneDrive in W8.1

    I see the App for OneDrive on the W8.1.1 Start Window but I don't see any "Select Preferences" in a drop down menu that is referred to in a CloudDock article "7 OneDrive Tricks You Didn't Know About". Can I/Do I need to install the Desktop App in addition to the W8.1.1 App shown on the Start...
