At the command prompt, type “chkdsk /f e:” where u is the name of the storage device or hard disk partition containing the 0-byte document. Press Enter. Wait for CMD and fix 0 byte file errors on storage devices or partitions of a specific drive.
[quote user=”Quillan”]I understand better why Microsoft made this statement and why we are both right. Looking at the program in Control Panel/Programs, the enterprise is 15.3 MB in size, but it is a computer program that does not include infection definition files and a database. After installing the components, everything downloads update files, which significantly increases disk space.[/quote]
I can suggest that I use the following tool to put Microsoft Security Essentials to bed forever.
2) Double-click “My Computer” in the “Computer” view…. Look at the startup disk on the right…. Click “Properties”… Note the size of the disk being used.< /p >
4) Repeat point 2 above… note the new butmeasures the disk used.
5) Extract the difference between the two numbers and put me out of my misery. [geek]
That’s exactly what I did because I didn’t install it before doing step 1. As I said, the program doesn’t take its definition so much from every file that doesn’t show up in Control Panel/Programs. The files match the program. Anyway, here are my posts (in the previous post I was thinking bits, not bytes, sorry).
After installation, but before modifying and loading the definition/database file. : 374,886,330,368 free bytes, that’s the difference, including 82,563,072 bytes or 78.73 MB
After updating or loading the definition file /database.378.083.418.112: free bytes difference is approximately 3,279,650,816 bytes or 3.05 GB
I said that sounds like a lot, so I’m fine with that, but I’ve been very picky about the numbers (three times) of how I set it up, so I have no reason to believe it isn’t. right.
How do I fix a 0-byte file?
To recover lost data from a zero byte image, the best solution is to find out the person who sent it to you in order to forward the start with another program, if possible. Compress the file(s) into a good . zip (using a product like WinZip or WinRAR) usually helps sometimes.
