  1. I have a problem replacing KB2760494 in the "Updates_ELL" folder with the KB in Spanish. You say in info.txt: "For languages other than English, we need these 5 updates in our language." I don't know what ELL means. No languages are seen in Microsoft Catalog for any of those KBs. Although downloads measure differently. How is this? In any case, I only have the problem with KB2760494, since there are 40 files in the download with the same name. which one do I choose? https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB2760494
  2. I have never gotten a list of updates for Office XP. From the list you give, I see that the following are not in the Microsoft Catalog: officexp-kb833858-fullfile-enu officexp-kb837253-fullfile-enu officexp-KB904018-FullFile-ENU officexp-KB905758-FullFile-ENU officexp-KB911701-FullFile-ENU officexp-KB920816-FullFile-ENU But it is possible to get these on webarchive in its English USA version. I don't know if these are obsolete, some are from 2004. https://superuser.com/questions/1185038/how-do-i-download-kb-updates-for-office-xp-under-windows-10-that-are-no-longer-o Additionally, there are 2 more downloads that come in the Microsoft Catalog and that are not on that list project2002 KB961079 visio2002 kb2434711 https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=Office XP
  3. I usually read the license files. Most Service Packs and loose operating system updates are freely distributed. I would invite you to post links here to Office 97-2000-XP-2003-2007-2010 updates without fear of violating any terms of service. The only requirement is to share the terms of the different licenses, which are included in each installer file. If you create your own Service Pack it should include all these licenses, but if you just distribute the original files you can do it directly.
  4. The file that is downloaded is: Office 2007 Compatibility Pack cab.rar And inside it only contains 2 files: xlconv-x-none.msp xlconv-x-none.xml There is no file in .CAB format I have checked the hash and it is correct.
  5. I receive 3 drives in 3 envelopes inside a larger envelope. One drive with supposed capacity 64 TB, truly contains an 8GB SD card, this card is not even fixed with a sticker or silicone. The other 2 drives are a surprise, in theory I had requested 2 drives with a capacity of 2 TB to check if this was real. I opened them expecting to find an SD card but I found that these are 2 Flash drives with a chip. Its true capacity is 7.4 GB & 6.9 GB. I have not yet attempted to format them to their true capacity and I am not sure how I could do that. If no other option works, I will try with RMPrepUSB.
  6. I receive a drive that says it has 128 TB, I have opened it and it contains an 8GB SD card. CHKDSK & Victoria test do not give errors with 128 TB. To format the card to its true capacity the trick is not to perform any operations on the original drive. You just have to remove the SD card and insert it into another SD card reader, then any partition program will indicate the real capacity and say that the card is not yet formatted.
  7. As @jaclaz said inside there is an SD card reader, with an SD card. While the size is different. SSD 12 TB Its opening has been complicated, the trick consists of introducing a screwdriver between plastic and metal on the connector side by hitting a hammer very carefully. Then you have to pull up with the screwdriver. It cannot be done on the opposite side since there is a lid. The unit is sealed with silicone, even the card is sealed with silicone. Flash 16 TB Its opening has been very easy, I have only had to throw slightly with an pliers and the circuit has left the capsule. Now I extract the SD cards and introduce them to my SD card reader. SSD 12 TB - Introduced the card in my reader Windows says: Generic-Multi-Card (121MB) - I have not yet managed to format this card in my reader, the cyclical redundancy error occurs. I am surprised to say 121 MB (no 128 GB). It looks like a 64GB SD card. Flash 16 TB - Introduced the card in my card reader, Windows says: RD3: Generic-Multi-Card (4GB) - Once the card is formatted when it is reintroduced in the flash 16 TB marks the correct size, 3.1 GB It is clear that these products are a scam and that the price is very expensive for what it really is. Apparently the trick is introduced into the SD card and not in the reader. The reader works correctly with any card. What surprises me is that now these drives work properly at Windows XP. So I would like to know why with false size data Windows XP does not recognize these units and yes Windows Seven.
  8. Before testing with real data, I have carried out a third test with the 12TB SSD drive with H2testw. This time there was no error in the writing phase with verification and I stopped the test at 592 GB. However, upon subsequent checking, H2testw says that only 48.2 GB are successfully recorded. Later I tested it with real data. SSD 12TB -Trying to format from the Windows Seven menu gives an error. -Everything over 48.2 GB is recorded defective. FLASH 16TB -Any file larger than 1 GB is recorded defectively. -Recorded files less than 1 GB are replaced with new ones less than 1 GB. -Some defragmenters show the drive others do not. The ones that show the drive do not give an error when defragmenting. -Chkdsk from Windows Seven does not complete the operation and leaves the disk defective. This automatically changes the disk drive name to: RD3:ChipsBnkFlashReader (4GB) CONCLUSIONS: SSD 12 TB really has a size of 48.2 GB. FLASH 16 TB really has a size of 3.1 GB. Now I'm going to open the drives and see what's inside.
  9. From what it seems, this 16 TB Flash would only have 3.1 GB, unless we multiply 3.1 x 15.3 TB. H2testw has finished checking the 1TB partition and still says that only 3.1 GB is correctly written, the same as at the beginning of the check. Warning: Only 1047140 of 1048577 MByte tested. The media is likely to be defective. 3.1 GByte OK (6685504 sectors) 1019.4 GByte DATA LOST (2137857216 sectors) Details:0 KByte overwritten (0 sectors) 0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors) 1019.4 GByte corrupted (2137857216 sectors) 0 KByte aliased memory (0 sectors) First error at offset: 0x00000000cb168000 Expected: 0x00000000cb168000 Found: 0x0000000000000000 H2testw version 1.3 Reading speed: 10.7 MByte/s H2testw v1.4 I point out that the "Write+verify" button verifies the written data, but that does not mean that at the end of the test the data is still written. Once the "Write+verify" test is finished, you must press the "Verify" button, then a process begins that will take even more hours. I don't know what these 2 values mean: 0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors) 0 KByte aliased memory (0 sectors) I think that the stores that are selling these products are primarily responsible for scamming people. The first people interested in reporting this are the legitimate manufacturers, Kingston, Sandisk, Crucial... If they don't care, there is little we can do. Anyway, anyone can write a letter to Aliexpress giving them the link to this post and informing them that they are scamming buyers. If after sending the letter they do not remove these products, there is judicial proof of fraud. I am now going to do tests with real data.
  10. H2testw has completed the test on the 1 TiB partition on 16 TB Flash drive. Despite the message, I think that the operation has been a success. It was expected to fill only 4 MB more. Media has filled up earlier than expected! In the beginning there were 1047144 MByte free, but only 1047140 MByte could be written. Warning: Only 1047144 of 1048577 MByte tested. Writing speed: 25.2 MByte/s H2testw v1.4 The partition now has 512 KiB free. Now I am going to verify that the written data is correct with H2testw itself. It seems that the results are not going to be correct. If any of you want me to perform another type of test, this is the time to indicate it. Later I will enter real data into the drive and verify it.
  11. I think that the tests carried out with FakeFlashTest are not correct. The tool is not able to show the disk drives capacity in the preview. I think it doesn't work with such large units. Regarding H2testw, it is clear that it gives errors in the 12 TB SSD drive, and after carrying out two tests, the errors are not in the same GB amount (8 & 44 GB). On the 16 TB flash drive the H2testw tool has written and verified more than 600 GB in two tests without errors. At this moment I let the test continue. A strange thing, at this moment while the 16 TB Flash test is being carried out, the light on the 12 TB SSD unit is blinking. The Windows Seven resource monitor shows some activity on all disk drives even though they are not working. I don't know if this is normal.

  13. These programs do not recognize the drives in Windows Seven, so it is not possible to test. -Checkflash (check sectors). -Flash Drive Tester ---> does not recognize this drives installed how flash units, this confirms both that are SSD units. -RMPrepUSB ---> does not list these units although yes other disk drives (PATA/SATA & USB)
  14. Winhex in XP is not able to open the drive, gives in/out error. In Windows Seven it gives the same values for the SSD 16 TB drive and for the Flash 16 TB drive. This says that both drives have capacity 16 TB. XP WinHex - SSD 12 TB Seven WinHex - SSD 12 TB Seven WinHex - Flash 16 TB
  15. Well, that's what I want to check. What is true and what is false. According to that link I have to use H2wtest to verify units. I have already mentioned that in one of the units I have stopped that test at 624 GiB. But I still don't want to confirm that this capacity is real. I will upload all results tests. Until now I have been trying to make the drives visible in Windows XP, unfortunately I have not succeeded and I do not understand why. The result on XP is the same as with the Seagate 5TB external box converted to MBR. The device manager recognizes and installs the hardware, but neither the drive nor the partitions are visible, except in this case I can take the hard disk out of the box and connect it with another adapter. On these drives with supposedly 12 and 16 TB, these are displayed in the device manager... ... but only 2 programs recognize that there is a disk drive installed in XP, MiniTool Partition Wizard and EaseUS Partition Master, but both show the drive as a 2 TB "Bad Disk". Afaik I have to conclude that some drives with more than 2 TB are not possible to install on XP with Microsoft drivers due to the adapter firmware. It seems that there are certain adapters type that on XP are limited to 2TB. It is somewhat strange, because I have 8 TiB external hard drives working with USB adapters on XP, but not all adapters work. Some with MBR +2TB do not work on XP but do work on NT 6-10 and others do not work on any operating system. I will be left wondering why. I have tried to install the Universal ATA Driver (UniATA), but I have not succeeded yet, it seems that it is necessary to edit the .inf file adding the Hardware ID. so that my unit is recognized. http://alter.org.ua/en/soft/win/uni_ata/uni_ata.php Does anyone know another updated driver for disk drives in XP?
