Very annoying message balloon

Posted: 09-22-2008, 10:52 PM

Attempted to backup my Outlook .pst files to a DVD but advised the
backup was unsuccessful. Now a message continually pops up (see
screenshot). When I click the balloon to see the files it takes me to
my EMPTY DVD burner (no disk) it tells me there is a 276k backup file
there.
When I navigate to
C:\Name..\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Tem porary Burn Files
there is nothing to delete - this file is empty.
Can anyone suggest a fix - this balloon popping up all the time is
distracting and driving me nuts![image:

Running 64 bit Vista Home Premium on Quad Core 2 with 8 Megs RAM, 2
HDD's and 2 DVD burners.

Hi Mandevu,

I can see that must be annoying - you might find it here

6757

as opposed to here

6758

Not sure, but it's got to be worth a look.

There's a free app. called specialfolders view that you may like to try
- quite handy for tracking things down - don't know if it will do what
you're after, but you can get it here

'Freeware Tools and Utilities for Windows'
(http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/index.html)

Hope that's of some use

Thanks SW12 - but no temp .pst files there. Only temp .cvr files which
assume are fax related. I guess it is a temp .pst file I am looking for
Will try the resources you suggest, but have to admit I get scared jus
looking at the vast amount of options available
Appreciate your suggestion
Regards
Mandev

Hi

Suggest you download the app. called SpecialFoldersView.

It's a zipfile , so right click it and select extract all. Then righ
click and run as admin on the SpecialFoldersView.exe. It is a
executable , so doesn't actually install.

When you run it , lots of folders are listed down the left hand pane
Click (or double click - depending how you set up your mouse ) on the
to view the contents - you might find it in one of those

Hope it help

Hi Again,

When you have ( hopefully) sorted out your dvd drive issue, you might
find this useful

Yes, thanks - installed and ran SpecialFoldersView, but all the folders
I think may be pertinent are empty. Also ran CCleaner to clean out all
temp files, but this made no difference!
I guess it would help if I knew exactly what I am searching for - I
have been assuming it is a temp or .pst file - which is what Vista keeps
referring to?
Regards,
Mandevu

Hi

Curious . OK here's a longshot with some kind of logic, I think

Vista is desperate to burn some files ( or phantom files ) - so why no
let it

Pop a cd ( or cdrw if you don't want to waste one ) into the drive
drag any old file into the window and click burn

With any luck Vista will burn those annoying files as well ( or thin
she has ) and stop nagging you

Do you reckon that's worth a try

Before you do that, did you check the other dvd drive? Click startorb
click computer, right click the other dvd drive and click open - see i
that reveals anything

Hello SW14 - I looked for the scanpst.exe file mentioned on the site yo
recommended but I guess the site must be dated because I can find n
such file where they suggest it defaults to. Perhaps because I'm usin
64 bit Office 2007? Nevertheless I'll dig around and see what I can com
up with. When I attempted to back up my .pst files originally I di
follow the recommended procedure, however it still bombed. I understan
from others Vista is better backed up to flash memory than CD/DVD
should have done my homework
Thanks for your help

Hi SIW2 - Tried to burn on both DVD's but Vista wants me to navigate t
the file and select it for burning - these folders are empty. I get th
impression some Vista programmer is having a real hoot watching m
running around in circles

Hi SIW2 - wait up! Success! Didn't read your last suggestion correctly
so went back and did what your suggested in the first place (burn an
file) - low and behold Vista burnt a .pst backup file to a disk and th
balloon and Outlook error messages have disappeared, and I'm back t
enjoyable computing
Thank you so much! You have my vote!:cool
