Recovering Files On Google Chrome
The lovely, February 2020 update once again did more harm than good to my computer. I was able to recover my wiped out files that were so lovingly removed from my computer and desk top. However, the update also decided to wipe out all my favourites/folders, etc. that I had on Google Chrome. Would re-installing Chrome maybe (a chance in hell?) bring those back, or am I screwed (again). An e-mail to Google yielded no help for this issue. I thought maybe someone on the message board might help.
HELP..-files locked after updating windows7 to windows10
I recently updated my windows 7 to windows 10. Realised my google drive folder, in window.old (that has been carried in from windows 7) seem to be encrypted, it has a lock sign. I have tried decryption it by various methods available, nothing seems to work, (changed security attribute, changed ownership, tried command prompt decryption) however no luck :( . The folder was not synced with the cloud hence a lot of files in the folder were sitting on my local drive. Now I can't access them at all. I understand window.old folder will automatically delete after 30 days, and I have about 10 days left to get access to these otherwise all may be deleted. Any help to rescue these would be much appreciated. Note: 1- I had backed up this folder on my external hard drive, and have realised the same issue appearing on the external hd. 2- This particular folder is google drive folder, however it wasn't synced as the capacity was exceeded. I hope the issue is understandable, and I hope someone will have solution on this as I am completely exhausted trying to recover these work files.

Backup external drive files to OneDrive
Hi I need to back up files held on an external drive. This used to be possible with OneDrive, but now it seems that only files resident on the C: drive can be synchronized to OneDrive. That will not work for me; my C: drive isn't large enough to accommodate all the files I need to back up. Is there a way to backup files from drives other than the C: drive, or was that capability removed for good? Thanks,
Windows Defender anti-virus
Hi all - 1st time posting, I think. On my new HP computer - Windows 10 - I confirmed that Windows Defender anti-virus is turned on, and uninstalled McAfee trial that came with the computer, as I've read was advised to prevent a Trojan virus sneaking inbetween the 2 protections. TWO QUESTIONS: (1) Is Windows Defender all that should be required, for a casual-use, at-home pc, or do users get a second anti-virus program to back it up? and (2) My (paid) McAfee subscription ran out on my OLD (now only occasionally used) Windows 10 PC. Is there anyway a virus could get into that computer, and transfer over to my NEW pc, since the devises are apparently synced? TIA!
