I have a 1.3GHz Gateway Intel Pentium 4 w/ 384MB RDRAM PC800(I added memory)w/20GB IDE hard drive. I bought it 6 yrs ago with WINDOWS ME and upgraded to XP last fall, possibly Oct. 29 but I'm not sure. (How can I find this out?)
Yesterday I started the process of conversion to NTFS from FAT32 and I got a response that included: This conversion will also remove your previous operating system backup. Then: Convert may run if this volume is dismounted first. ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID (their caps). Would you like to force a dismount on this volume?
What are opened handles? What happens when they are invalid?
And how do I find my backup(s)? I have a folder on my desktop Created Oct.29, 2006 that is faded and labeled _RESTORE. Properties shows that it is 1.21GB and has 951 files that are marked Read-only and Hidden but when I open the folder it shows only 4 files of 64KB dated 2002 and 2004. Is that folder related to backups?
I want to create a current backup or restore point but I have only 5.15GB left free. Help, please.
