How to create USB Recovery Drive for windows 8

How to create USB Recovery Drive for windows 8
Most of the times, when our computer's operating system gets corrupted, we have to reinstall windows. But if we don't have the installation media, then we can use the windows recovery disk to restore the windows operating system in our computer without loosing our data. So, let's see how to create recovery disk for windows 8.

Follow the steps below:

1. Insert your pen drive in your computer's USB port.
2. Now open command prompt with administrative rights (to open command prompt, press win key + R from your keyboard and type cmd and press enter key) and type this command and press enter key:
mkdir c:\RefreshImage
Now again, type the following command and press enter key:
recimg –CreateImage c:\RefreshImage
typing commands to create folders
3. Now, bring your mouse pointer in the right corner of the screen and click SEARCH.

5. When the recovery drive tool appears, click the checkbox next to "Copy the recovery partition from the PC to the recovery drive" if you want the recovery tools, such as applications and drivers that came with your PC to be included in the recovery drive. If the selection is grayed out, that means your PC doesn't have a recovery partition. Keep in mind that if you do copy the recovery partition, you'll need at least a 16GB USB flash drive. Without it, you can make it with just 256 MB. Click NEXT to continue.

Unable To See Files In Pen Drive : Fix It

Unable To See Files In Pen Drive : Fix It
Today, I went to the home of my friend and he showed me an 8 GB pen drive which was full of images, documents and movies but after plugging it in computer and opening it, there were nothing in it. Although through properties, I could see that 80% of the pen drive was full and antivirus also was showing that files were being scanned by it, but after opening the drive, it didn't show anything in it. Then I tried to view the files using DIR command in command prompt but there also, it was reported empty. My friend was so worried because it he had stored his college documents and some important photos in it. He asked me to find a solution and get the files back, so I applied a small trick and within 2 minutes, his files came back and were visible in the drive. If you are also facing such type of problem with your pen drive, then use this trick.

Follow the instructions:

1. First of all, scan your pen drive with any good antivirus, such as AVG Antivirus.
2. If no any virus is detected, then open notepad, go to Save As and save the file in the root of the pen drive as autorun.inf and autorun.ini (Suppose your drive is F:, then save the file as F:\autorun.inf and F:\autorun.ini)
3. Now open command prompt and type the following command and press enter key:
attrib -h -r -s /s /d F:\*.* 
4. When command is successfully executed, exit from command prompt and now open the drive of your pen drive. You will see that your files are now visible.

BattleField 4 is a very popular game these days and is being downloaded by lots of the people from unauthorized sources, like torrentz. Well, after downloading and installing this game, most of them find its default language either Russian or Polish. These languages are not understandable by everyone. So, if you have also got this game and have been facing problems with its language, then I have a great solution to make the game's default language English.

Follow The Instructions Below:

  • Download English Language Pack for battlefield 4 and extract it. (Well, its about 800 mb, but don't worry, just download it and it will surely work for you.)
  • You will get two dll files and one folder in the downloaded file. Copy the two dll files and paste them inside C:\Program Files\Origin Games \BATTLEFIELD 4\
  • If the dll files already exist there, just replace them.
  • Now, from downloaded file, go to Data>Win32 and copy the folder named Loc.
  • Now paste the copied folder into C:\Program Files\Origin Games \BATTLEFIELD 4\Data\Win32.
  • If it asks to replace the exiting folder, click Yes.
  • Now, download this registry tweak and run it to implement it in windows registry.
  • That's all we needed. Your English Language Pack is installed now and set as default language.
