I read something the other day that Verizon might do the same with text messages.

Hmm, I'll have to download Firefox and think of a good way to do that.

I did cobble together a new utility to remove readme files too, and have added that to the prior post.

Just wanted to let you know, I updated the program in the prior post.
It should now scan faster and find a few more missed language files.

General Software Discussion / Add just missing fields to MP3s

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knows a good program to just add the missing fields,
not replace the existing ones, to the mp3 tags, in batch?

Developer's Corner / Re: There's Apple in my Microsoft
« on: October 20, 2012, 10:54 AM »
There were other companies who had app stores, way before Apple.

Steam is an example of an download/updater for games, it was around way before ITunes started doing non-music. In fact, Steam has now started selling utilities/applications too.

- Install Microsoft .Net 2.0 SP2 on your computer.
- Make a full backup of your computer.
- Right-Click the app and click 'Run this program as administrator'.
- Wait, it will take a few minutes to run, even on my fast computer. Its scanning your entire drive.
- Review the files to delete, you can select only the ones you want to.

Some files may not be able to be deleted. You may have to download the Take Ownership of this File batch file found below:

I would advise you to only remove a few of them at a time. Then run a few checks here and there.

DelLangFiles v0.0.1.1 build 11/23/12
DelReadmeFiles v0.0.1.0 build 11/29/12

The space saving is the not that great, unless your are counting windows system files which there are usually distributed in multiple languages (see windows\winsxs and windows\software distribution)
On the otherhand SSD's benefit greatly from having less entries in the allocation tables. If you sync that folder, is also runs much quicker.

I wrote a small utility that does this.
