It sounds to me like System Restore and Hibernation need to be disabled.
If you need help with disabling these, then here's how:
- Press Windows Key+Pause Break, or right-click My Computer and choose Properties
- Click "System protection" over on the left
- Click the "Configure..." button (or press Alt+O - that's the letter 'O')
- Choose "Turn off system protection"
- You'll get a prompt telling you that this will delete all previous restore points. Click OK or "Yes" (I forgot what the confirmation button says)
- If you have other drives that say that the protection is "On", then select those drives, click "Configure..." and repeat the above
- Open the Start menu
- Type cmd
- Right-click the result named "cmd.exe"
- Choose "Run as administrator"
- Type powercfg -h on and press Enter (nothing happens afterward, but the lack of an error means it was successful)
- Type Exit and press Enter
oh noes, I accidentally typed "powercfg - h on" instead of "pwercfg -h off". Oh, but wait: Twister773 followed my instructions and still got it disabled anyway.Edited by TwoCables - 6/2/11 at 5:09pm
