These days more and more PC/laptops comes with SSD drive and most of them are either 128 or 256 and some are even smaller drives. If you are one of the user don’t want top pay for more storage with iphone and backing up your phone to PC, you will face some challenge with drive space. Specially with ever expanding iphone storage size.
Issue is itunes saves this backups under userprofile, usually in C drive. Solution would be change this location and point to a external drive or different drive. All the credit should goes to https://support.imazing.com/hc/en-us
I’m gonna list the Windows way first.
Usual backup location for iphone located under C:\Users\*current user name*\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Navigate to folder and rename or delete folder called “backup”
Then Shift+Right click and select open powershell windows OR you can bring command prompt (go to run type CMD) and the type
cd C:\Users\*current user name*\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync
I know once in a while windows UAC tend to interfere with application. I seen many issues with some ERP programs. You can simply disable UAC via control panel in Windows 7 but Windows 10 will not completely disable UAC via control panel. Because if it completely disable metro app will not work on Win10.
This is reg edit to disable UAC completely, if you ever have to fight with it to get application working.
Few days ago I was doing office 365 migration and I had strange issue with outlook not picking up auto discover settings. End customer was setup with godaddy imap mail and want to move to office 365. I can see from 365 panel DNS was setup correctly but whatever the reason, mail client was keep going toward contoso.com instead autodiscover.contoso.com ( Yes I pick domain right out of the Microsoft teaching : )
Finally I ran Microsoft connectivity analyzer and it spit out below error,
We got an unexpected autodiscover response. We can see that your mailbox is in Office 365. However, AutoDiscover service seems to have configuration issues that prevent Outlook to connect o Office 365. An intermediate web server at https://contoso.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml is interfering with AutoDiscover service and responding with incomplete data.
To work around this issue if your administrator can’t resolve the above soon, please take the following action:
Create an Outlook registry key to exclude the HTTPS root domain. For more information about how to do this, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article: 2212902Important Excluding the HTTPS root domain is not a long-term solution for this issue. This workaround is provided as immediate relief for it. As soon as your administrator resolves the above AutoDiscover issue, the Outlook registry key must be removed. You need to either remove or correct the AutoDiscover component from https://contoso.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml. If https://contoso.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml is managed by a web hosting provider, please contact them, and make sure that the web server is not responding to Autodiscover requests.
So this issue cause by godaddy cPanel pointing all mail request to particular domain to thier internal hosting server. I’m not sure why godaddy do this but again I’m not admin for godaddy.
Also this also cause headache if you are current office365 customer via godaddy setup but if you decide to go to office 365 and host your mail. Because I seen many posting related to issue with moving from godaddy version of 365 to MS direct office 365 exchange. But surprisingly godaddy tech support has no clue and also MS support. Ms support solution would be adding a reg key to stop going https look up for autodiscover but this won’t solve the problem with mobile devices.
Okey enough with rant and here is the solution,
Log into godaddy and from My Product page click mange next to domain hosting
Click on three dot and click on settings
Then click on cPanel admin
Then you will end up in cpanel and then go to email section and click on Email Routing
once you there configure email routing and select Remote Mail Exchanger and change.
Also you can click on Zone editor and edit correct MX entry and point that to office 365 mx entry.
After that mail client will point to correct place without and issue.
I had a situation where whatever the reason when I sent command to uninstall webroot from cloud console AV will not get removed from the PC. It was annoying and solution from webroot support tool didn’t work and here is the one of the solution I found. Unfortunately, you will have to boot machine to safe mode.
First boot the PC to the safe mode. If you are doing this remote, you can use remote software to boot the PC to the safe mode too. This will save you on site visit 🙂
Recently I had situation that I had to setup direct RDP access to PC behind firewall. I know some of you think why you did that but the issue was application user was using wasn’t displaying properly any other remote software. Yes, I did all of those remote software and none work. But you know you cannot use usual 3389 RDP port it is known security issue.
So here is how setup non standard port for RDP access.
First go to System properties and enable RDP access
After that go to run in start menu and type regedit.exe this will bring up registry editor and navigate to
I’m sure time to time all of us seen that windows users user profile get corrupted or some weirdest issue happened and get complain from end users. Specially in domain environment, you need to delete complete profile. Otherwise system will not allow to create a profile. So here is how we remove those profile.
Go to run and type regedit and enter
Navigate to the following registry key :“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList”
Under ProfileList navigate to binary key’s like this:
On the right side under ProfileImagePath you’ll see the
Chose the one with the desired user and delete the long registry key like: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList”
Delete the one with the .bak or the one with the username in the list
Then you will have to reboot the PC and log back as user and it will create brand new profile.
So here I bring one of the best article I’ve visited so many times up until last month. It is surprising to see how many users still use old Office 2011 but again everything getting way expensive and really how many of us really need latest and the greatest ( Except all the apple share holders 🙂 )
Just a few cent from me, before do anything try to do time machine backup and make sure you don’t have anything sitting in the trash that you need again. Yes backup takes time but it take even longer if you have to reload system!!
Start Finder, go to Applications and delete the folder Microsoft Office 2011.
Navigate to the system library. NB! Please keep in mind that all users have their own library as well.
Open Internet Plug-Ins and delete all Sharepoint files.
