This was the only thing that worked!! There seems to be some confusion around this app so today we'll explain how it works. Was Mike Pence Vice President to Obama for a few minutes? The only suggestion I have to speed up the solution is to right click the service to make it manual, reboot, then delete the folder.
So dissapointed and now I can't work. Microsoft can't even give a proper software to make it easy. Everything worked fine from a 320gb drive to a 500. Please try the request again. It does not allow me to click "stop." Can anyone tell me what to do?
