system folder not getting deleted… uffff


I am fed of this Jdeveloper.. Its behaving weird sometimes and will no listen to what I say..

quite many of us would feel the same way and there is only one way to fix this..

Deleting the system folder… 🙂

this post will tell the exact location where you can find the system folder in windows..

One issue that we face is that how much ever you try to delete sometime you will get

so what’s the reason:

This issue is because of the limitation in windows machine that the maximum length of the folder hierarchy is 255 to 260.. not sure about that but its less than 260 characters.. [path+filename]

and to identify in our system folder.. the following path violates the above max limits.

C:\Documents and Settings\{user_id}\Application Data\JDeveloper\system11.1.1.4.37.59.23\DefaultDomain\servers\DefaultServer\tmp\_WL_user\oracle.webcenter.framework.view

(all folders [3 mostly] that starts with oracle.webcenter.framework under _WL_user)

workaround:

move all the three folders that starts with oracle.webcenter.framework to much higher level .. say.. outside the actual system folder itelf.. [C:\Documents and Settings\{user_id}\Application Data\JDeveloper\].. and delete it..

now your system folder will get deleted easily.. 🙂

How to by pass some restricted access in Windows


Ever wonder how to get access to restricted application or options in windows.

Here in this post I am going to explain the utility provided by microsoft for administrators to enforce restrictions easily.

the utility is called  ‘gpedit.msc‘ means Group Policy Editor

what is Group Policy Editor?

The Group Policy Editor console is a graphical user interface(GUI) which allows admin to edit registry entries easily.Manually editing  registry entries is advisable and sometimes it will cause some unexpected problems.The gpedit.msc tool makes the administration of registry easier

There is another utility called ‘secpol.msc‘ which is similar to group policy which is used to edit subgroups

How to run Group Policy?

go to run  and type ‘gpedit.msc

Where all the information’s are stored?

All the information that is edited from group policy editor will affect registry editor directly.

The physical location of the modified files will resides in

%SystemRoot%\System32\GroupPolicy\

There are three folders to store information related to Admin, Machine and User related configurations

The Adm folder contains all the entries enforced on the system by the administrator and these entries directly maps to the windows registry

For example if you want to disable connection tab from internet Explorer you locate

Administrative Templates – Windows Component -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel

Click on ‘Disable the Connection page

Click ‘Enable’ and then press ok.

Now if you open Internet Explorer you will not see the connection tab in the Internet options page from Tools menu

The above mentioned is a simple example of how and why group policy is used. You can explore more options yourself to enforce/restrict user access

To more on the options Group Policy Settings download the respective excel spreadsheet for your windows operating system

Tips to get some space in your C: drive


Before doing these setting go to

Tools -> folder options -> View and under the Hidden Files and Folders

enable ‘Show hidden files and folders‘ and

un check ‘Hide protected operation System files[Recommended]

click ok for the popup

1 – Delete the unwanted user settings

Delete everything from

C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application Data
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Temp
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Application Data
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\History
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Don’t have any junk files in Desktop

repeat the above for all the users in the system

2 – Delete unwanted uninstall files[files starting with ‘$’] from

C:\WINDOWS
also
Empty C:\Temp (if it exists) and C:\Windows\Temp

3 – Delete from

C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution

4 – Delete from

C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles

5 – uninstall unwanted programs from control panel and also from the program files[some files will be still residing inside program files even after the the application is uninstalled]

6 – Search for *.log files in C: and delete everything.. sometimes this will take some GB space

with all the above steps if you feel the performance and the space is not increased then try increasing the virtual memory or don’t have it

If the virtual memory is set then you will find two files in C:\hiberfil.sys and C:\pagefile.sys both will be having the size corresponding to the allocated memory size

to disable virtual memory

Right click ‘My Computer‘ -> got to ‘properties

Click the ‘Advanced Tab‘ in the System Properties window

In the Performance section, click the ‘Settings‘ button

Click on the ‘Advanced Tab‘ in Performance options window

In the Virtual Memory Section, click the ‘Change‘ button

Select the ‘No Paging file‘ option and click on ‘Set‘ button

This will ask for a restart of the machine

restart the machine and you will find some space in you C: for sure
