Re: Presario CQ57



A useful utility for viewing all the files on your PC is called Free Commander, on the link below, as it displays folders that the Operating System normally hides and has a good search function.


This is a zipped file.  If you don't have an extraction utility installed, download and install 7-Zip which can be used to open this so that you can run the installer.  When installed, launch Free Commander, click the D Partition in the Toolbar to view all the files in this partition.


NOTE:  Common applications that can mistakenly write files to this partition may include Windows Back-up or Norton Back-up ( Norton back-up files may appear as BACKUP_360 ).
