If the files and folders in your external hard disk or flash drive have turned into shortcuts or are hidden, here is one solution to recover your data. Operating system used – Windows 7.
- Install good antivirus and scan entire computer including the flash drive/external hard disk.
- Go to Control Panel, Folder Options, select VIEW tab, select “Show hidden files, folders and drives” and uncheck “Hide protected operating system files (recommended)” now click APPLY
- Open command prompt (press Win+R, type cmd, press enter), assuming ‘G:‘ as the letter of affected drive, enter this command-
attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*
replace ‘g:’ with other drive letter if needed.
You can check your flash drive/external hard disk, the data should be visible. You can restore the original folder options.
I was trying to create a blog based on locomotivecms , but the ‘bundle install’ command failed to install the rmagick gem.
RMagick is an interface between the Ruby programming language and the ImageMagick® and GraphicsMagick image processing libraries.
So here is the solution.. worked for Windows 7 64bit, should also work for 32bit machines.
Ruby > 1.8.6
DevKit (any version)
No other ImageMagick installation or PATH entry
*Important: The installation path should NOT contain any spaces.
Ideally select “C:\ImageMagick″
Please make sure to select the below options:
Use the following command to install rmagick gem:
gem install rmagick --version=2.12.2 --platform=ruby -- --with-opt-lib=c:/ImageMagick/lib --with-opt-include=c:/ImageMagick/include
i’m installing version 2.12.2 as it is needed by locmotive cms, if you skip the version parameter, 2.13.1 will be installed.
Happy Coding 🙂
