The first image above (on the left) had System "File Type" not Documents as I see when I check properties.  Go to C:\Users\DR M and right-click on the Documents folder.  What does that show you?

Good morning.

This is what I get (attachment). Type: File folder this time, but again 3,52 GB...

In the attachment below, it seems that when I hoover the mouse on the word Documents, the size is 93,6 GB.

But when I right click on the word, and then select Properties, the size is 3,52 (see previous post-attachment).

I can't understand what is happening. I don't want to loose more than a year's work. :(

I have a problem ... again. And this time it is all mine...  :o

I am trying to back up the content of all my libraries in an external hard disk. OK. I did it.

BUT: My Documents content is shown as 3,52 GB only! Both in the computer and in the external hard disk!

In my other external (has a back up from February 2017), Documents' content has a normal size: 92 GB.

I tried to see if something is missing but I can't say.

I attach a photo from computer's Documents and from the external's Documents.

I'm doing something else (but using a computer, not a tablet). Delete all the messages I don't want to keep, and then: File > Save Page as (Web page complete). Then I delete everything in the Forum's Inbox and start again.

I could do this for anyone who trust me that I won't read his/her personal messages.  ;)

This is an old video (2012) I found as I was looking for something else. I find it very powerful, so I considered that it could have its position here. Some people have really an amazing power inside them.

Cross-country skier Janine Shepherd hoped for an Olympic medal -- until she was hit by a truck during a training bike ride. She shares a powerful story about the human potential for recovery. Her message: you are not your body, and giving up old dreams can allow new ones to soar.

There is no decision yet. 80% does not want the time change. The EE will decide after analyze the results. It seems that the majority of Europeans prefers the DST, but nothing is confirmed yet.

With a little help from a friend (which made me think of this old song,, well done, Panos and thanks, friend satrow!

And thank you for the song. Beautiful lyrics.

Thanks again, satrow. I have just finished. Everything seems fine.

It seems that every computer in this country has this problem. This time the same happened with a computer with 1709 to 1803 version (I just deleted Windows OS)

Updates from Settings end with error.

I update via Microsoft's page and everything seems good till the restart, which brings the computer back to its previous version.

I suspect that  GetCurrentRollback is somewhere in the middle!

I install Win Patrol.

I try again the update from Microsoft's page.

Win Patrol warns about the  GetCurrentRollback.

I accept the change and disable it via WP.

Updates are installed after the restart.

P.S. I used the usb with the 1709 version, that's why I had to upgrade to 1803.
The suggestion above (Andre's solution) didn't work.

You may get your wish, Panos.

It was not my wish, I only said that it would be rather difficult for younger students preparing in the dark.

Besides, I voted in favor of the DST.  :)


Sony don't make anything easy...

This is what I found too about Sony! Windows cannot be installed to Disk 0 Partition 1

It has a simple solution. Sony BIOS settings are one of the worst bios settings i have ever seen.
The error saying disk controller enabled means laptop is find more than one boot option from bios.

I checked the Bios again, and the second boot option was the Optical drive, not the Hard Disk. Although this is strange, since the first option was to boot from the usb, the change I made here solved the problem, and Windows 10 are now being installed!!! I am at the Updates stage and I hope everything will go smoothly here, because ... I can't have another Updates problem now!!!

Thanks, satrow!

P.S. Just for clarification about the Windows 7 disk I tried before: I did this only to check if the problem had to do with the memory stick, and if a dvd would work with the installation. I had no dvd at home and I could not burn the Windows tool on a dvd to check it.

Windows needs activation, but I guess we have not such a thing now.

I can say only these:

Sony Vaio
Intel Centrino 2
Service tag: C6015ZL7

I don't know where to find more information.

To include the above info in a topic:

I didn't delete the partitions. I formatted them.

Disk 0 (Partition 1) -> 12 GB (OEM RESERVED)
Disk 0 (Partition 2) -> 360 GB (SYSTEM)

I tried two different sticks with Windows 10 but the installation can't be completed, because I get the Check the Disk Controller error in Bios.

I tried a Windows 7 DVD, not mine, with the same result as above.

In Bios there is not such an option. It's a Sony Vaio computer, and I can only change the boot options and the date/time. Nothing else.

I don't know what to do with the MBRWork. Install it in a usb stick? And then?

Would it be better to delete the partitions and let the installation create new?

But the partitions  are still exist. I didn't delete them. I formatted them...

I know they are there because when trying to install Windows 10, I reach the screen with the partitions, but cannot move on (check the disk controller in bios).

This is what I remember:

Disk 0 (partition 1) -> OEM (12gb)
Disk 0 (partition 2) -> (360gb)
