Specs: WINDOWS 6.3 (8 {ACCTUALLY SERVER 2012, BUT I POSTED IN 8 FORUMS, BECAUSE THIS IS THE SAME VERSION}), 9.6GHZ/4GB
HAY PEOPLE,
I WANT TO KNOW, HOW TO MOVE (COPPY+DELETE) FOLDER SUCCESSFULLY.
WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO, IS TO FORCEFULLY UPDATE WINDOWS, WITH THE MOST EASY METHOD, WHICH IS THE WORST.
SO, I HAVE WINDOWS 7, AMONG MANY OTHER WINDOWSES, AND SOMETHING WENT WRONG, AND WINDOWS COULD NOT BOOT, BECAUSE ONE PROGRAM.
I REINSTALLED WINDOWS 7, AND MADE A COPPY OF OLD WINDOWS 7.
I REMOVED THE FILES WHICH WERE CAUSEING PROBLEMS, AND NOW, I WANT TO RESTORE THAT BACKUP.
I AM USING WINDOWS 8 TO DO THAT. (ACCTUALLY, WINDOWS SERVER 2012, BUT BOTH WINDOWS ARE 6.3 VERSION, SO THIS IS NOT IMPORTANT).
I SIMPLY COPPYED ALL FILES ON THE PARTITION WHERE WINDOWS 7 WAS, AND THEN REINSTALLED IT. AFTER I REMOVED PROBLEMATIC FILES FROM THE COPPY, I TRIED TO COPPY BACK THOSE FILES FROM BACKUP TO PARTITION WHERE WINDOWS 7 IS INSTALLED WITH SIMPLE CUT-PASTE METHOD (THE SAME METHOD I DONE THE BACKUP).
BUT THE PROBLEM IS, IT IS NOT DOING ANYTHING.
IT IS DISPLAYING PROGRESS, LOOOKS LIKE IT IS MOVING FILES FROM BACKUP TO ORIGINAL LOCATION, BUT IT DOES NOT.
WHEN IT GOES TO THE 100%, I GO TO FOLDER WHERE BACKUP IS, AND EVERYTHING IS STILL IN THE FOLDER.
I SELECTED CUT NOT COPPY IN FILE EXPLORER, AND IT SHOULD DELETE FILES AFTER COPPYING THEM (THAT IS WHAT CUT MEANS COPPY+DELETE=CUT).
BUT ALL FILES ARE STILL IN THE BACKUP FOLDER.
ALSO, OF COURSE, I SELECTED REPLACE ALL FILES.
I TRIED BOTH TAKING OWNERSHIP AND GRANTING FULL CONTROL PERMISSIONS IN THE ACL OF THE WHOLE WINDOWS 7 PARTITION. (EVERY FILE AND FOLDER IN IT), BUT NOTHING.
IT WAS TAKING OWNERSHIP OF THE WHOLE PARTITION FOR AN HOUR, AND AFTER THAT, I TRIED TO RESTORE THE BACKUP, WHICH WAS RESTORING FOR THE HOUR TOO, BUT NOTHING. ALL FILES IN BACKUP ARE STILL THERE. THERE ARE NOT MOVED.

DO YOU KNOW HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM, AND HOW TO FORCE WINDOWS FILE EXPLORER IN WINDOWS 8 TO REPLACE FILES, OR WHITH WHICH PROGRAM I CAN FOREFULLY RESTORE THOSE FILES, IF FILE EXPLORER DOES NOT DO THAT?
THANXY
