My Vista system crashed due to a corrupted windows file. When I reformatted C:/ & reloaded firefox & tbird, my bookmarks were gone. I have an image of the drive , but I don't know how to recover them and get the data back where I can access it.

Vista system crashed due to a corrupted system file. The C drive was reformatted, and windows reloaded, along with the rest of my programs.
Before the drive was reformatted, an image was made of it on a USB drive to save all the data. Now I need to know how to get the Bookmarks back for Firefox, and the Address Book back for Thunderbird.
Thanks

Thanks for the quick response. It worked very well, for both Firefox and Tbird.
One hitch, until I remembered: those are all hidden files, in hidden folders. I had a devil of a time finding the "roaming" folder, until I found out how to unhide everything. In years past, I used DOS for that kind of thing. Explorer is much less user-friendly. Now that I know how to do it, it's simple.
Thanks again for the guidance

    You can install it on your iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) either by redownloading it directly on the device via the Purchased tab in the App Store app on it, or by connecting the device to your computer's iTunes and syncing it to it.
    Syncing apps from a Mac : iTunes 11 for Mac: Sync and organize iOS apps
    from a PC : iTunes 11 for Windows: Sync and organize iOS apps
    As to how to then use the app, if the description on the app's description page in the store doesn't describe how to use it in enough detail, then is there a link to the developer's website on its description page, and does that have details ?

    iCloud storage doesn't affect the available storage on your device.  It's for backing up your device and syncing your data, so you can recover the data if needed.
    You probably need to import photos/videos to your computer or another destination (like a photo kiosk & burn CDs), and then delete them from your device.  Or, delete some unused apps from your device.

    The memory on my MAC is full. It holds 4GB of RAM of which 79GB are photos. I would like to back up my photos to an external drive but just do not know how. I do not wish to use time machine. How do I back up my photo library, then delete them from my MAC to free up that 79GB? Thank you.

    Hi
    Just to clarify a couple of points in your post.
    RAM (memory) is different from hard drive space. You have 4GB of RAM, but that has no bearing on the amount of drive space you have, of which we know that 79GB are photos.
    If those photos are in iPhoto, you should be able to move the entire iPhoto Library, from the Pictures folder, to your external hard drive. You can just drag and drop. Do not have iPhoto open while you're doing this. Once it's done, you can double-click on the moved iPhoto Library file to associate it with iPhoto, so that the app remembers where the library is for next time.
    One more thing. When you move a file to a different location, and then delete the original, you don't have a backup. You still only have one copy. So if that external drive dies, you will lose all your photos. Time Machine is a very good way to prevent this from happening. You should dedicate a different drive for Time Machine backups.

    Thank you for your kind, may God bless you.

    OS X Mavericks: Reinstall OS X Heres the link if anyone else had the same problem!! This is if you deleted not only the Mac App Store, but iTunes, Calendar, whatever came with the Mac (Apps that came already installed on the Mac), if you deleted one of those then you have to reinstall the Mac OS, Note: This one is for Mac OS X (Maverick) my version is 10.9.4, go to that link and follow the instructions if you have Mac OS X (Maverick). Other help: Common Mistake: If you delete the app from the dock then just go to finder and applications folder and drag the app back onto the dock(it was just deleted from the dock NOT your system/computer). Hope that helps others who had the same problem.

  • HT1178 My Time Capsule is only blinking amber. My computer tried to backup but I don't know how to tell if it did in fact back up the data. How can I tell if it backed up and why doesn't the light show green?

    Just purchased a Time Capsule. Had to call Comcast to disable the WIFI and have internet connection. The time capsule though blinks amber and the Airport Utility shows blinking amber light and has a red circle with the number 1 in it. After connecting, my computer tried doing a backup for the first time and it appeared that it was backing up and finished although I don't know how to check to make sure that it did backup. How do I check and shouldn't the light on the time capsule be blinking green and the airport utility show green?

    TM will show it has done a backup.. Look at the info.. when was the backup completed??
    If you want more details install the widget.

    The time capsule though blinks amber and the Airport Utility shows blinking amber light and has a red circle with the number 1 in it.
    There is an error.. probably trivial.. firmware update, default password..
    Open the airport utility and find out what the error is.
    Simply click the TC and see status in the summary page.. it will list all the errors and what you should do.. fix or ignore them. ie this TC has an error.. default password.. I chose to ignore.. when I "fix" the problem the LED goes green.
    Here is additional TC.. it is blinking amber with faults.
    Click the fault. eg default password.
    You can ignore or edit .. if you click edit it will take you to the full setup where you can change the settings.
    I ignored my errors and now it is green..

  • I am wondering if you can actually restore the notes that were lot I really don't know how to restore them and don't want tem to get lot further into the system. Can you help me because I have 256 subjects that I'm studying and now all my notes are gone.

    Help me out apple support team. You guys are awesome. Well I hope you guys are awesome you have like a time machine. And like that's a huge step I'm sur you can do it.

    If you did not back up to iCloud or to a computer, they are gone.
    Have you backed up?

  • HT201272 I recently had to reset my iPhone and all my purchased ringtones are gone. It is in my purchase history on iTunes, but I don't know how to reinstall them on my phone.  Help!

    Can someone please tell me how to reinstall purchased ringtones on my iPhone?

    You should have transferred them to your computer and backed up your computer.
    Sync them from your computer to your iphone.
    You only get one download.

  • HT4191 I accidently deleted (I think because I can't find it anymore) a list of "songs I like" from my notes on my Iphone. I don't know how to recover them from my Icloud. Can someone help me?

    I accidently either misplaced or deleted something from my NOTES on my IPhone 4s. I want to restore it. Can someone help me do that?

    If you were using iCloud, did you have Notes turned on for syncing? If so, then it would be there. If not, then see if your AOL account has a notes folder. Outlook is for the computer and you would have to have a setting in iTunes for you to be syncing to that.

  • I have an idea for a phone, but I don't know how to make it or anything like that and I'd like you to help.

    I have an idea for a phone that in my opinion beats the big brands, they don't think about the smaller communties and focus on the girls taking photoes of themselves, my phone is different and I'd like Firefox OS to be it's operating system
    I still need to finish designs etc. but I have no idea how to make a phone or anything like that so I'd like guidance on the matter.
    I also have OS idea's myself but they're only thoughts, nothing in motion.
    To summarise, I'd like assistance. If you could help I'd be most grateful, thanks.
    -Trey

    Thanks, I know I'm not really a big brand (not even a brand at that) but I think you could always release as Firefox's first own brand mobile WITH the OS :)

  • I recently thought I was updating my Safari browser. When completed, I put all those little files that were on the desktop into the trash. Now my trash is saying it can't be emptied because there are locked files and I don't know how to unlock them

    I recently thought I was updating my Safari browser. When completed, I put all those little files that were on the desktop into the trash. Now my trash is saying it can't be emptied because there are locked files and I don't know how to unlock them or get them out of my trash and they keep multiplying. And to make matters worse, I tried renaming them as pdf files thinking that might do the trick.

    oh boy ! I'd ask you if you knew what kind of files they were or where they came from, but I don't think you could help me a bunch. Try going to the Utilities folder and running Disk Utilities.  If you want to empty the Trash and it won't empty, go to the finder and choose "secure Empty trash". Worse case scenario-you may have to reinstall Snow Leopard, but I don't know what else to suggest. If you have a DVD of Snow Leopard, boot up from that,  and reinstall the OS. This will not touch the stuff you have on your Hard Drive, then you can update from 10.6 to 10.6.8, otherwise Onyx? Maybe those files are part of the OS which needs them to keep running.  if you hold down the Shift key on reboot, you can reboot in Safe mode and maybe you can take the files out of the trash that way
    good luck

  • I  am using the G Drive Slim to back up my files, but I don't know how to tell if or when it is finished.  The white light does not change, flicker, go out, etc.  When is it finished?

    The whole story:  The hard drive on my quite new Mac Book Pro, bought in December of 2011, crashed and burned in the Fall of 2012.  I purchased a new hard drive  and was informed that the only way I could have saved my "stuff" was to back it up with an external hard drive.  Who knew?? I bought a G Drive Slim at the Apple store, and on their advice.  BUT I  really don't understand how to use it, and the instructions are completely inadequate.  How can you tell when it is finished?  I have educated myself on the proper way to eject the Drive, but I don't know how to tell if it is done.  Or, frankly, if it is even doing anything.  The white light burns steadily, no blinking, no flickering.  Nothing.  Thanks for  help. 

    are you backing up files, or doing a Time machine backup, either way, the Time machine will STOP when finished and show "last backup at XXXXXX"  meaning its done...... OR if when transferring files, it will show a progress bar on your desktop and vanish when files are copied.
    Open up the Hitachi drive (your G drive is made by Hitachi, and the best made by the way).....and see if the files are there.
    a MORE VISUAL way is to open the hard drive file, and drag and drop files INTO the Gdrive and you can see them visually be copied there as you do it.
    To see your HD on your desktop GOTO  FINDER......PREFERENCES....then GENERAL TAB.........check the box marked HARD DRIVES.........then your Gdrive will appear on your desktop........open it from there,  and DRAG and drop files from anywhere INTO the Gdrive....... easy visual way to see the files being copied into the Gdrive.

  • I have bought new apple iPad but I don't know how to verify my Apple ID can you please help me

    I Have bought new apple I pad but I don't know how to verify it can you please help me

    When you create an iTunes account you should receive an email to the primary email address that you put on the account - that email should have a 'verify now' link in it which you need to click on and which will open a browser for you to log into your account from.
    From Frequently asked questions about Apple ID :
    How do I verify my Apple ID by email?
    Simply follow the link in the verification email that says "Verify Now." Sign in with your current Apple ID and password, then click Verify Address. You can also verify by signing in at My Apple ID. You'll receive an email prompting you to verify.
    (For info these are user-to-user forums, you are not talking to iTunes Support nor Apple, nor is it 'live chat' - a fellow user will reply when they see a question and they know the answer.)
