  • some cookies simply cannot be deleted (but haven't checked for LSOs for them yet

aside: You may be able to kill those nasties with Bleachbit (here), although that's not what you're asking for here...

My goodness!  That's someone who is one with his bike!

How did you do your throughput tests?  I just got a laptop with usb 3 ("super speed") ports, and the first full backup to an external usb 3 hard drive was significantly faster than usb 2 speeds (as I would hope), but I haven't done any specific measurements.  (It's kind of moot, it's not like I have an esata port on anything...)  Anyway, did you use a utility, or just queue up a hundred gigs and see how long it took?  FreeFileSync and watch what it said?

As long as we're on the topic, readers might want to take a look at several free Kernel tools that let you access PST, OST and EDB files without requiring Outlook or Exchange to be installed.  I've tried several of these and they are worth much more than their cost.  :Thmbsup:

Oh yeah - and like Carol said, Mailstore is the bomb!

rgdot - is that Homer screaming to get out or eating his way through?  ;D

Just ran across this thread, nobody mentioned Steve Gibson's Spinrite?

So no more "Tell us where your leader is hiding, or we will play more Justin Beiber" techniques? Goddamn it, we are all doomed!

Two words...... Mars Attacks!

Right click on the folder, go to properties, go to security.  select the administrators group and you will see no permissions checked.  Check full permissions (or depending on o/s version, click edit and then select administrators and set full permissions) and then ok your way back.  Then you should be able to delete the leftovers.

Same thing happened here, a new job, new PC, new redirected folders, and I was setting up SSC offline... thank goodness for Search!  (And Mouser! ;))

There's not enough room in this forum for all the batch and cmd tools  ;D  I have a folder of about 800 files that I copy into the path of any new computer I get (or my servers at work) just so they'll be available, no installation needed.  Most of them are "batchable", including ports of the gnu utilities plus a bunch of other items I've found, looked for, or evaluated.

Of course the real gem on the Kilowatt site is Rexx (although I prefer the Regina port, which I use for any scripting I need to do.  (Any other old mainframers out there?  If you miss the ISPF editor be sure to look at SPFLite...)

My standard advise top anyone with Norton or MacAfee stuff on their machine...

+1 to everything you said!  ;D

Check out CryptoTE at

Incidentally, if you like CryptoTE's encryption and fast Scintilla editing, but you think it may be a wee bit short on fancy editing features, be sure to add in Dolphin Text Editor Menu... then just select some text and hit ctrl-numpad-0 to do the fancy stuff.  I liked Dolphin enough to contribute so I could use it at work.

The emboldened bit seemed a pretty big claim...

Scintilla is the bomb, it seems to be the innards of a lot of the best text editors these days.  They all have a slightly different flavor (I am preferrring Notepad2 these days over SciTE, for example, and even over my licensed copy of Ultraedit) but they all tend to be blinding fast and can handle huge files (hundreds of MB) extremely well.

Can you use your restore-to-factory-default to go back to whatever the base image was, and try the upgrade from there?  That would take care of the Toshiba utilities.  You'd still have to reinstall everything else...

If I don't want this automatically combining of the parts to a big picture, I can use single shots.

Same here, I use a scrolling capture if I want Mouser to merge the pictures for me, and if not then I take my own separate snaps of the different parts.  This can be useful for writing documentation, where an "auto scrolled" separate snapshot might not be scrolled to a logical screen break.

(...Second only to hiding file extensions by default).

The current MS SQL Server Express has a 10gb per database limit.

As Shades suggests, free and open source alternatives abound.  PostgreSQL, Firebird, SQLite, MySQL are just a few.  They have different strengths and weaknesses but are very capable.

As info, Excel 2007 allows a million rows and 16k columns.  But everything is going to have some limits.

You could look at <ahem> FART (that's Find And Replace Text).

Or, similarly, GSAR (General Search And Replace) would do it.

I have used both in several batch processes.

But even better, watch this cool video about batch file debugging with Take Command (which also has a 30 day trial, but a $100 purchase price).

Yes, the features list seems to include a lot of built-in stuff.  And a lot of features harken back to Windows 3.1/NT 3.5... weren't those the last editions of Program Manager?

Smart insertion of program files into Program Manager groups, by using the GROUP command.
Easy access to the configuration files, AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS and all .INI files. Use the System Edit... option in the system menu.
Fast access to Program Manager or Explorer programs. Use the Programs option in the system menu to run these programs.
WinOne® can be set as the default start up shell, replacing the Program Manager.

You could always try this batch file debugger free for 30 days... but it's a whopping $80 to buy.  Let me know what it's like if you do...

Well, if you can disable your user's site account, then that shouldn't interrupt access from what the user said, right?

748 should be in the windows\system32 folder of your system drive.  Can you try doing the command this way?  Navigate to a folder, then type in:

   %windir%\system32\ /f

Hmm, I know it was in XP, and I tried it on my Win 7 64-bit box before I posted.  Maybe it's in the support tools package, or resource kit?  (No, I just checked both of those.)

The program draws a very plain tree of folders (and optionally filenames) to standard output, which you can redirect to a file.  If you add the /a switch it uses normal ASCII characters for the tree part, like this:

|   +---{3C5BEFD7-288D-4C10-A534-8FEB19793A1A}
|   \---{A67B7115-600B-448C-AA0F-7E6FFF1A467E}
|       itg-nb75-backup_exit_notify.cmd
|       itg-nb75-nbmail.cmd
|       itg-old-backup_exit_notify.cmd
|       itg-old-nbmail.cmd
|       nb75-original-backup_exit_notify.cmd
|       nb75-original-nbmail.cmd

|               |
|               +---1028
|               |       DWINTL20.DLL

Just curious, is "tree /f" at a command prompt not sufficient?
