    Data Recovery from a File History .vhdx file

    Yes, It would be nice if it worked for me but it didn't. I did a new install of Windows 10 on my laptop hoping to restore to that, but I never got the check box option mentioned in the article. I agree that just using file history is not a very good idea. I also backup using Acronis so I can...

    Hello, No, I did not use Bitlocker. I have only used Windows10 home, so no, the old computer had Home too. I wish I had the old Hard drive but I know that the photos were accidentally deleted from it.But I'm pretty sure they are in the File History backup. The old computer was thrown out, the...

    Data Recovery from a File History .vhdx file

    Thanks for your reply. You can't access the files from a different computer from the one that it was created on. I have tried that, it won't work. Thanks very much.

    Data Recovery from a File History .vhdx file

    Thanks for your reply. Yes that question was not written too well, I have amended it to make some better sense, thanks. I cannot access the File History file on the portable HDD on another of my computers with my (the same) Microsoft account. The File History file is linked to my Microsoft...

    Solved Sony Vaio Ultrabook 2014 Increase From 100GB to 1TB storage

    I should have explained it better, the loop was when w10 trying to install to the M.2 at the point where the box appears for the drive allocation. I pulled out the w10 install usb drive.

    Solved Sony Vaio Ultrabook 2014 Increase From 100GB to 1TB storage

    I tried using a WD Blue 500gb SATA M.2 . It started to look like it would work, when I was installing Windows 10. But would not start . It went into a loop where it kept wanting to reinstall windows onto the drive. I think my VAIO 2014 Ultrabook Laptop will probably only work with a very limited...

    Solved Sony Vaio Ultrabook 2014 Increase From 100GB to 1TB storage

    It's a Sony BIOS I think? (computer is in pieces so I can't check). Sony don't do computers anymore, so I doubt they have any recent BIOS updates, can't call them for advice either for the same reason. The computer has had the BIOS checked for ""recentcifity"". The XP941 has M.2(M) interface SSD...
