Can’t download new apps to your phone because there isn’t enough storage space? Lack of storage prevented you from updating the OS? If you answer yes to any or both of these questions, you need to manage data on your phone – immediately.
New users might not know how to manage storage on smartphones. The ways to free up storage space on various operating systems are the same; the steps to implement each method differ, though. This article brings together the possible ways to manage storage on phones.
Check Available Space
Regardless of the phone you use, iPhone or Android, the first step is to check how much storage is available on the physical drive. This will help you conclude how much data and space you need to free up to make more space for other apps.
This issue started to appear on macOS 13 Ventura after recent Dropbox update. I would normally use a Spotlight search to search the files I have in my Dropbox folder that I commonly use (excel, word and plain text documents). Spotlight would find the files but once I select the file and click on it (or press return) it wouldn’t open the file with app associated with the file.
This was driving me mad as it also affected my productivity as now I would open Dropbox folder and then manually find the file I need and then double click to open it. It was driving me nuts for couple of days!
I tried just about anything: from reinstalling Dropbox to syncing all files I have in Dropbox again, to reindexing all files I have on my mac and nothing worked out. The Spotlight would just not just wouldn’t open any of my Dropbox files!
Since this morning (Feb 5th 2020) search just stopped working on my Windows 10 (version 1903). No matter what I would type in the search the results will not show. I couldn’t even start the calculator typing calc in the search!
After spending more than two hours trying just about any fix I have found online and numerous reboots nothing seemed to work. I even created a new account on my computer and on that account the search was working fine and was already looking for an easy way how to move all my data from one account to another when I found this fix that actually works!
Many of you have run into a problem when you were working on some old legacy php script that you wanted to adapt to PHP 7 where mysql_ functions no longer work (since they are deprecated).
The new PHP 7 comes with two database drivers: MySQLi and PDO. The PDO supports many different databases while MySQLi supports only MySQL.
So you probably thought, I’m just going to replace all mysql_ functions with mysqli_ and it’s done. Well, I’ve got bad news for you. It won’t! Also this way is also not safe. So take your time and learn about the changes and how you can overcome them.
After 10 years of running my main desktop computer on Windows 7 – time has finally come to upgrade it to Windows 10. Along with some hardware upgrades that my computer needed, I also wanted to move to the Windows 10 since the support and updates for Windows 7 will be discontinued on January 14th 2020.
Also, my 10 year old Windows 7 PC had a lot of settings and pieces of data that I didn’t want to give up that easily, so I got an idea to make a copy of the current Windows 7 as a virtual machine, so in case I need anything I could just boot the virtual machine and within seconds go back to my Windows 7 setup with all access all data and settings.
Making the virtual machine out of my Windows 7 PC
First step was to make a bootable copy of my computer’s hard drive partitions. For this purpose I used Disk2vhd tool made by Microsoft. It’s a free tool and all I needed to do is just pick partitions I want to backup and tell it where to back that up.
Ideally, you would want back this up on another drive (so the backup process is quicker since one drive just reads, while other one is just writing). My C: partition was 250gb and it was roughly 45% full and the result was a Windows7.vhdx file of roughly 100 GB in size. That was copy of my Windows 7 PC installation in one big file.
