Unlock and Access your blocked Files

unlocker-icon-windows-7

Have you ever experienced any of the following annoying messages when using Windows:

  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied.
  • There has been a sharing violation.
  • The source or destination file may be in use.
  • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Or did you ever wanted to open Outlook and instead of the Inbox you are shown the ‘The file is in use and cannot be accessed’ popup?

This happened to me several times, and the only way I could solve it was to restart my computer to unblock my outlook file (or any other files blocked), until I found this solution. Continue reading

Windows 7 Beta x64 leaked

windows_7_logo

A few hours before Steve Ballmer makes his keynote at CES 2009, the Windows 7 Beta 64-bit version has been leaked on the torrents. A few weeks back, the 32-bit version was leaked and things looked pretty good with this version, so i’m hoping that the 64 bit version will perform on the same level, if not even better :).

The full file name is said to be 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULXFRE_EN_DVD.ISO with a file size of 3.15 Gigabytes.

Click here to download the torrent for Windows 7 Beta x64 edition. If you want to wait for the Windows 7 public beta version it should be released in the coming days, after tonight’s Ballmer’s keynote!

Happy torrenting… if you cannot wait! 🙂

Download Free from iTunes.

I will be reviewing some iPhone Applications for the AppStore making your life easier with your iPhone. One of the most useful is Discover. This application lets you easily transfer files between your iPhone and your Computer (either Windows or Mac) and even other iPhones using your Wifi Network.

You can even upload documents and other files from any computer to your iPhone. It’s really awesome. You don’t need bluetooth anymore using this tool.

To connect from your computer to your iPhone, you don’t need to install any software, you just need a browser.  When you start Discover from your iPhone, an address is loaded. Just insert that address in any browser and you’re off to go (screenshots after the break).

More screenshots after the break… Continue reading
