File Has Properties That Cannot Be Copies by C and A Bredt
I wanted to copy my Favorites to a flash drive to put on another computer. Some of the files showed a message saying: Property Loss The File has properties that cannot be copied to the new location. Are you sure you want to copy the file without its properties? It gave me the choices = Yes, Skip, Cancel. Any idea what's happening? Thanks, CB

Search for files with parenthesis in name by Erik Wikström
How do I search for files who's name contains a parenthesis? Entering (2) gives me all files containing 2 (which are a couple of houndred, while there should only be two or three with (2) in the name) since the parentheses have a special meaning when searching. Ive tried to use \ to escape them but no luck. -- Erik Wikström

Problems with Vista backup program by No Name
I've not been able to complete any file backups successfully for about two months. Some of the error messages suggest that I need to tell my antivirus program to stop interfering with accesses to wherever the list of previous backups is stored - but so far I've had no success finding out just where that is. I have found that a program C:\Windows\System32\sdclt.exe seems to be responsible for...
