I have a 233Gb zipped file.... Can you recommend a tool that will allow me to view the compressed files and choose only the ones I want to extract?

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

I'm looking for zipping tools that could create zips with password
for OS/400 R7  platform so that sensitive data in files are encrypted
& when we sftp over to Windows/Unix, the encrypted zipfiles are
sent over : for PCI-DSS compliance, we want data at rest to be
encrypted both at AS400 & the Windows/Unix ends.

Ideally the zipping tool can be called by RPG & Cobol

In Unix, we can 'pipe' data stream directly into a zip; would be good
to have this feature for the AS400 tool.  

Also, we have tons of logs (eg: audit trails) taking up valuable space
in AS400 so this zipping can hopefully reduce the size of these

As the title mentions, Realtek HD Audio Manager is consistently muting my headphones for some reason. I have tried using the microphone/headset on other devices and it works perfectly fine. But when I plug the headphones in, it works for the first few seconds then mutes. I have to manually go on the application and un-mute the microphone device in order for people to hear me online.

Hello,

I just received a Lenovo TS140 (70A4003AUX), with firmware FBKTB7AUS, Date: 9/16/2015, and when booting, and pressing F10 to get into the onboard Lenovo Diagnostics, is not working.  Past TS140's have always had this option.  Does anyone know if Lenovo has removed that feature at some point?

Thanks!

So previously I had an issue where I could not install from WDS because my boot image did not contain the correct drivers and it kept complaining about not being able to see the DHCP server.  That has since been resolved after downloading a 3rd party driver from the Realtek website for my LAN.

Now I have an issue, where after installing and image from WDS, the setup get to where you specify the country or origin, keyboard etc, then a username, then password, then license acceptance, then time date and region, then I skip the Wifi AP section and then to the screen where it says finalizing your settings.  It stays here about 3mins or so then restarts and goes right to the beginning where you have to specify language and keyboard input etc.

This is driving me nuts.  If anyone can tell me as to why this is happening I would greatly appreciate it.

I installed Windows 10 on my non-branded Chinese laptop and everything went well, considering. I ran the standard Win 10 update which installed a few drivers.  I also ran a driver update through Driver Booster 3 and got a few more.

The system is running well, however, there are a few problems such as the computer making a beeping sound when I plug in a charger, and some minor screen issues when I unplug the charger that I'd like to fix.

So comparing the hardware ID’s of my drivers in device manager before installing windows 10, here here are the new windows drivem missing:

    Driver name: Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator
    Hardware Ids: BTH\MS BTHBRB

      Driver name: Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network) #2 Properties

                  hello everyone,
                  to help me to apply tests on a running configured system (windows 10) , I would need to create a virtual box image to be sure the tests will not affect the original system.
                  to do this task,I have tried hyper v file generator and also create vhd from disk manager. These two options does not work. the cloned version does not boot.
                  I have also tried easus todo backup but still no luck for a bootable copy system.

                  I would like to ask you your inputs to know which procedure might work.
                  what could you bring me as usefull inputs to cover such task?
                  Thank you very much in advance.
                  Best regards.

                  I know this is a very specific question but figured there might be somebody out there that may know the answer to this so here it goes.  We use labtech to support our clients we use michael priest ninite plugin with ninite pro to keep everything as far as free programs and some paid programs up to date.  We also use trend micro worry free security at these clients.  Now one thing we do is use the url blocking in the trend micro.  The problem we are having is if I run ninite on a computer that is not using more than just the defaults that trend micro blocks then it runs fine.  When I run ninite on a computer that we have set url blocking up on then it will mess up.  I have talked to ninite and there suggestion is to use the offline file and make our own scripts in labtech.  which mind you we pay for ninite monthly and we pay for michael priest plugin for labtech so that is not an option.  They told me 2 urls that the software goes to in the beginning but then they said that it goes to a large number of other mirrors and sites after that and they cannot list them all.  Trend micro will not help because they say trend is working fine and labtech will not help because they will say it is working fine you need to get with trend micro.  So I am hoping that someone has an answer

                  Hello,
                  I posted a question dealing w/ PE a long time ago, but I now have started the learning process again; believe me I need a lot of learning.

                  I’ve working w/ a Windows 7 x86 PE USB boot image. I can burn the boot image to a USB drive w/o a problem and will boot fine, but that’s where my low level experience steps in. I’m working w/ the WinPE 7 on a x64 Win 8 laptop but don’t think that’d make a difference.

                  I run bsexplorer in the winpeshl.ini the explorer.exe file starts but has serious problems. When I use run from the start menu, hit browse, a window doesn’t even come up for me to pick a particular file out. There’s also no my computer icon on the desktop, and I’d really like to be able to see what devices need drivers, but I think getting that far is a long ways away. Maybe a missing driver causes the problem to begin w/?

                  There are a lot of premade WinPEs to download, and there are a lot of WInPEs called Gandell’s WinPE. What I’m trying to do, and haven’t had any luck finding this yet, is to look at the start up files from the ISO mentioned above. I look at the startnet.cmd, and all I see is winpeinit.

                  I’d like to see what Gandell’s WinPE uses to get its desktop going. A desktop that has my computer on it & functions to get to device manager. Is there a portable app that gives you the desktop w/ the my computer, gets you to device manager, etc? I search through the ISO file along w/ the boot.wim file but don’t see any unattend files. Would what I’m …

                  I am a network engineer who has been tasked with rolling out a backup service for our Salesforce account and have been looking at three vendors with the assistance of our (non-IT) salesforce administrator.  This is a system that he will administer; I'm just involved to do the due diligence.

                  His preference is Spanning, although he also likes Backupify.  Between the two, he's stated that he'd be completely okay with either product.  We've also looked at OwnBackup.  Our salesforce admin says he could certainly "live with" OwnBackup and I shouldn't refrain from choosing them if I thought they were better, but he likes the other two better.

                  The sales reps from all three vendors have stated that their product is the only one that will restore all data (including metadata, related records, etc.), and that using one of the others may potentially result in significant disruption to our environment in the event of a problem.

                  For my part, I am only concerned with three things.  First, we need an indefinite retention period.  My team isn't yet certain what our legal requirements will be in that regard (the company is expanding rapidly, and adding offices nationwide), and we'd prefer to not have to worry about it.  Second, we want to ensure that any data transmission is encrypted (obviously).  Third, we want to ensure that any restoration actually works.  Normally, I wouldn't bother saying that third point as it would seem obvious, but each of these vendors is saying that this is not …

                  Looking for a solution (cheap) to count inventory the fastest way possible.  Currently we have no scan guns or wifi in the warehouse.  We house at least 100,000 items.  What I would like is a scan gun that I can load an excel worksheet that has columns for our Item# (Barcode data), Description, Qty and fill ins for bin locations so pickers can scan what's there and it will save to the spreadsheet in the gun.  Added feature would be a fill in line for bin location so future picking would be easier for our pickers.

                  I can then download the spreadsheet and reconcile with our QB inventory.

                  Any advice Experts?

                  I'm trying to successfully deploy Windows 10 on a Dell OptiPlex 790 in my lab environment in order to push Windows 10 out to several of these PCs currently in production. Despite the fact that Dell does not offer a driver pack for Windows 10 for the 790, an upgrade to Windows 10 using the Windows Update method works fine; however, when I run a LiteTouch install, the keyboard and mouse do not work unless I am using a PS2 keyboard and mouse.

                   Upon further investigation, I found that the "USB Root Hub" device drivers are not properly installed on the deployed OptiPlex 790. My steps for a solution thus far have produced no meaningful results. I have tried the following:

                   1. From a working installation of Windows 10 on an OptiPlex 790, performed a full driver backup/export and imported into MDT 2013 Out-of-Box Driver folder for model-specific-injection task sequence. After deployment completed successfully with 0 errors and 0 warnings, the drivers are still not loaded and keyboard/mouse are nonfunctional.

                   2. Created an application package to silently install Intel Chipset during the LiteTouch OS installation, which includes the proper USB drivers for the OptiPlex 790. Results are the same; yet if I run the install after deployment, the drivers are installed successfully.

                   I'm just about out of ideas on this one, but I KNOW there has to be something that can work. It doesn't make sense that a manual install of the chipset can produce positive results but the same …

                  Hello Experts,

                  I have Adobe Reader 9.0 and want to shrink the file size. The resize file size is not there in 9.0.  I do NOT want online web sites to shrink the file size for obvious reasons. A lot of the tools/software on SourceForge have adware tracking. I have Windows 8.1. Any free utility is appreciated.

                  Any suggestion?

                  Thanks

                  I have a Java Soap Client that send some xml files to a remote server to be processed.

                  It uses java 1.7's java.nio.file.WatchEvent<Path> (almost just like it's explained here) to monitor new files added to a directory.

                  It is processing about 2 or 3 files per minute.

                  Looking for a way to increase the speed of files sent and processed I decided to start the same jar twice, monitoring different directories of course.

                  I can't explain why both processes are still processing about 2 or 3 files per minute. I doubt the problem is in the remote server, since I have a log showing the moment when each file begins and ends it's processing, and it shows almost the same behavior when using only one linux process than when using two.

                  I mean the total throughput is the same when using only one linux process than when using two.

                  The size of the xml's are almost always about 8KB.

                  I'm guessing there should be a bottleneck somewhere other than CPU.

                  Any suggestions on what tool or tools should I use to find it and how to use them? (Remember, it's a Java application)

                  I would prefer to use free or openSource tools, but I could consider using a paid one.

                  Thanks

                  I have an application that uses IE to run.  Currently we are getting occasional error messages popping up when we try to pull files from the db to the client pc.  

                  Error message:
                  Sys.webform page request manager software error exception. An unknown error occurred when processing the request on the server.  The status code returned from the server was: 12002

                  I am desperate to fix this as it is currently costing my company business.  I have attached a Wireshark file from the end users pc that we ran.  We got lucky because we had this error happen several times during the capture.  If someone could give me a clue as to what they see I would be greatful.

                  I'm having a problem recording audio with my microphone. I know my microphone works (tested on different computer) but my computer refuses to record any audio. When I try to adjust the volume for my microphone in the "Recording Control" window, (from double clicking on the silver speaker in the system trey and clicking options -> properties and dotting recording) all the volume sliders are grayed out except the master recording volume. My mic volume is not muted. I have installed latest realtek drivers. When looking in Realtek's Audio Manager and under the mixer tab, the recording sliders are not editable there either. Searching google for other solutions have hinted that the rear pink input in the playback section must be un-muted and turned all the way up. I did this but still have no recording at all. I have also looked for any bios fixes and it doesn't look like gigabyte has any updates for their onboard audio recording. I have also bought and installed a cheap sound card (i Dot Connect 4 channel pci sound card) to see if the microphone would work with that. Unfortunately, the same problem persists. I even disabled onboard audio from the bios to see if just the sounds card alone would do the trick but with no avail. (Also, The card's audio output is working fine.) I now have my realtek audio drivers reinstalled with onboard audio re-enabled. Everything seems to be working fine except I can't record a thing. Any ideas?

                  I am with a school and bought 40 new HP ProDesk400 G1 MicroTower computers. Can not get HP to help. They have Windows 64 professional that we want to upgrade to 10. Take them out of the box they directly go to windows to setup. You are supposed to just hit F10 and go into BIOS. We have tried 30 machines. We can not get any of them to go. When you continue to hit F10 it looks it up and gives a black screen like it is in suspend mode. You see the hard drive lights blinking. I have tried every function key. Exc key del key. I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM. Please help. One of HP's comments were to send us a new system board. Well we unpacked 30 of them. I really think if I could get into BIOS I could solve this.  Also bought memory to push it to 16 mg. It give one long beep when you put another stick of matching memory in the 2nd slot. Again, can't see what is going on. PLEASE HELP.
