      This assumes that you had logged into Chrome and synced the bookmarks in the first place.

      If the file is in your backup you can select it, close Chrome and restore the file.

      Browse the backup for C:\Users\(yourusername)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks

      Without access to logs and a more in depth view of your setup there is not much we can do to help. Is there no one else in the company who can help you?

      Are you sure your power supply isn’t faulty? Have you tried it with another Surface? Another Surface power supply with your Surface?

      I’m not familiar with the Nirsoft FullEventLog View

      We (at Woody’s) often recommend Nirsoft utilities because we find them useful. The website is: https://www.nirsoft.net/

      in reply to: Check disk modes effectiveness #2280618
      Paul T

      Check Disk tests the meta data (file size and location) to find inconsistencies. If it finds problems it reports them. You didn’t get any errors so there is nothing else to do.

      The /R switch tests every sector not in use on the disk by writing and reading data. There is no need to use this on modern disks (anything in the last 20 years) because they are self healing and never report problems unless they are failing catastrophically.

      Check Disk does attempt to fix problems and if used with the /R switch will mark bad sectors if found (at which point you need to backup and replace the disk immediately).

      See this article for details on checking your disk and data.

      I am confused on what/how to do the bootable rescue media

      You need a 3rd disk / big USB stick to be able to restore the image to your new disk.

      1. Create the MR rescue disk on the 3rd disk.
      2. Create an image backup on the 3rd disk.
      3. Attempt to boot from the 3rd disk. (Hold Shift down and click Restart)
      4. If boot is successful, shutdown and swap the old and new disks.
      5. Boot from the 3rd disk.
      6. Restore the image from the 3rd disk to the new disk.
      7. Shutdown and remove the 3rd disk. Reboot. Hold breath.  🙂

      cheers, Paul

      in reply to: htm & html files open up as blank files #2280611
      Paul T
      AskWoody MVP

      HTML files are just text and you can view them in Notepad to see if they contain relevant data.

      Generally they look something like this at the start.

      <html>
      <head>
      <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
      <title>

      Great! Now you can work out whether it’s one program or a Windows thing.

      in reply to: Multiple ISO Files on USB #2280364
      Paul T
      AskWoody MVP

      You can’t easily automate the mounting of the 5 DVDs, but you can put them all on one USB as ISO files, then double click on the ISO file to mount it in W10 – don’t forget to eject the mounted ISO after use.
      I use ISORecorder (allows you to right click on the CD/DVD to create the ISO), you can also try BurnAware.

      1. Insert DVD 1.
      2. Create an ISO image on your PC.
      3. Repeat for all DVDs.
      4. Copy the ISO files to USB stick.
      5. Insert USB in the computer to be updated.
      6. Open Explorer and double click on each ISO in turn. (Hopefully) the update will start.
      7. Eject each ISO in Explorer as you go.

      cheers, Paul

      I don’t see any ProcessID 8076 in Task Manager

      Make a copy of the PIDs when you fire up Windows and every hour or 2, then check the the next day for 10035 errors. Make a list of the process name and error over a few days, then post here.

      PID Collection
      Open a Command Prompt.
      Run these commands:
      echo %date% %time% >> %tmp%\PID.txt
      tasklist >> %tmp%\PID.txt

      To read the list enter this command:
      notepad %tmp%\PID.txt

      cheers, Paul

      Is that error from exactly the same time as the blackout?

      Can you record blackout times and then look for events at the same time? Use Nirsoft FullEventLogView to make the search easy.

      How many computers are not getting patches?

      Have you checked the SCCM logs?

      Have you checked the Windows Update logs on the clients?

      cheers, Paul
