BSOD - PNP error

The main culprit for this annoying error for some is the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Manager Driver, or the Intel DPTF Manager Driver.

Intel DPTF Manager

Do you have another computer you can connect the drive to and use autoruns to hopefully identify and disable the drivers causing the crash? You'd use the "File -> Analyze offline system..." menu item.

In the Options you'll want to hide Microsoft and Windows entries as disabling those can easily make the system unbootable.

How to show keystrokes on Windows 10


The app is open source and doesn’t need to be installed. When you run it, to goes straight to the system tray. By default it will show keystrokes as well as mouse clicks, highlighting which mouse button was clicked. The first thing you want to do after running the app is customize it. Double-click the app’s icon in the system tray to open its settings.

On the General Tab, you can select where the keystroke shows on your screen. Use the top, bottom, left, and right offset sliders to position the visual. Carnac supports multiple monitors so you can choose which monitor the keystroke should be displayed on. Be careful with this setting because if you offset it too much from all sides, it might cut the visual off.

Once you’ve positioned the app’s visual, go to the Keyboard tab. Here you can customize whether the app will show all keystrokes or just those that include modifier keys. You can also customize the visual, its font size, opacity, and the color.

The Mouse tab is where you can customize how mouse clicks are shown on your screen. If you don’t want the mouse clicks to show, uncheck the ‘Show mouse clicks’ option. This option is a bit buggy though so if it doesn’t apply, set the value of the Stop Opacity slider to 1, exit the app, and run it again. That should do the trick.

Logitech webcam log file

 LWSDebugOut.txt is a logitech file that captures errors. In my case 1.8GB of errors. This is because a new error record is appended every 5 seconds that the webcam is not connected.

Delete duplicate files


Duplicate Search Mode

Starting from version 1.35, SearchMyFiles also allows you to search duplicate files on your system. In order to use this feature, simply change the search mode in the 'Search Options' window to 'Duplicates Search'. 
When you switch to 'Duplicates Search' mode, all other search options are still relevant, and SearchMyFiles will scan your files according to these settings. For example: if you choose to search for files larger than 500KB, SearchMyFiles will only search for duplicate files that their size is larger than 500KB. In fact, it's highly recommended to narrow your duplicate search by using date/size restrictions, because if you don't do it, the duplicate search will be very slow, and it'll consume a large amount of memory.
When you are in 'Duplicates Search' mode, SearchMyFiles will first scan all files and folders according to your settings, and only after the scan is finished, it'll locate the duplicate files and add them to the files list on the main window. SearchMyFiles automatically mark the duplicate files with identical colors (up to 64 different colors). There is also a 'Duplicate Number' column, which displays identical number for each chunk of duplicate files. You can click the 'Duplicate Number' column header in order to sort by this column and to easily view the chunks of duplicate files.
Be aware that the duplicate search is done by making a binary comparison of the files with the same size, byte by byte.

FreeFileSync is a free data backup software that helps you synchronize files and synchronize folders. It is designed to save your time setting up and running data backups while having nice visual feedback along the way. FreeFileSync is Open Source software, available for Windows, Linux and macOS.


Detect Moved Files
FreeFileSync is able to detect moved files on one side and can quickly apply the same move on the target side during synchronization instead of a slow copy and delete. To make this work, FreeFileSync requires database files (sync.ffs_db) to compare the current file system state against the time of the last synchronization.

The Two way variant already creates database files, therefore, detection of moved files is always active.

The Mirror variant however, does not need the database files to find synchronization directions, so detection of moved files is not available by default. If you don't mind the creation of the database files, you can enable this feature by selecting the Detect moved files checkbox.
