Hyberfil.sys literally sucks your hard drive dry. If you don’t use hibernate mode on your computer then you can save a ton of disc space by telling windows to stop using the option.

In the command prompt just type in-

“powercfg -h off”

The computer will pause for a sec and then you’ll notice about %10 of your hard space was recovered. This is because windows deleted the file hiberfil.sys.

You can find the folders that are eating up your drives by using the app WinDirStat. It’s kickass!

You can also compress your “Installers” folder in the “Windows” folder to free up another nice chunk.

After using these options my hard drive is looking good again. Went from like zero free-space to over 10Gig free. =D

After falling for some malware BS recently I found an old “system image” that I made a while back that I made when my computer was running perfect. This is a must do if your a computer freak like me. Make a “System Image” of your Windows in case you get a virus. It’s pretty easy to never have an issue again.

  • Go to the “Backup and Restore” area of the control panel.
  • Click the “Create a system image” button on the left.

  • Save it to a hard-drive.  DONE!
  • Be aware that you will be restoring the drive as it was so be sure and get you personal data off of it. I’d recommend using a completely different drive for all your personal data.
  • To reinstall your system image go to that “Backup and Restore” and click the “Recover system settings or your computer”.
  • 2016-02-02_23-25-48Click the “Advanced recovery methods” button on the bottom.
  • 2016-02-02_23-30-26Click on the “Use a system image you created earlier…” button.
  • Skip backup and “Restart” your computer.
  • When your computer comes back on let it scan for images.
  • Then select what image you want to restore.
  • It will reinstall you system image and you should be good.

I blew both tweeters at the exact same time. Must have been a weird power serge. Unfortunately Yamaha doesn’t make it easy or cheap to get the replacement part. You can either order it direct from Yamaha for a premium or go to partsimple.com and get it cheaper but you’ll have to wait for a hell’a long time. You won’t be able to find the part number anywhere on the speaker so you’d have to call into Yamaha to get it. I got it here for ya though.

PART NUMBER – X7237A00

Yamaha HS50M
