Bug in Windows explorer can result in lost files by Dave
I believe I've found a bug in Windows Explorer that I can reproduce reliably. If anyone can get this to a QA engineer in the Vista group at Microsoft, I'd appreciate it. Here's how to reproduce: 1. Open the Windows explorer browser (not Internet Explorer). Set it up so that you that you can see folders in the left-hand tree view panel and files in the right-hand list panel. 2. Create a...

"Calculating time remaining" stupidity by Nick Payne
Is it possible to stop Vista wasting time on this stupidity every time I use Explorer to copy anything. For example, I just copied a 4.3Gb DVD ISO between two drives. It took Vista about 20 seconds to tell me that the copy was going to take 15 minutes: it actually took about 6 minutes for the copy to complete. And if I copy a large directory structure, it wastes even more time giving me a...

Vista Search by Frank
Hi, In XP Home with Windows Desktop Search our users could search data on our network without having to have a copy of the 50GB of files on their laptop. Apparently, with Vista Business, the only way for our users to index this data is to have a copy of it on their hard drives (via offline folders). Is that correct? Has anyone found a way around this? Thanks

Hi, a little system specs here first: I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit on a brand new month old high end gaming PC with 500gb RAID 0 as 2x250gb drives. Before you get on me for lack of data redundancy, I also have a 500gb external hard drive being regularly used for backups using Ultimate's file backup and complete disk image backup too. My motherboard is an Intel 975x based and CPU...

Vista says it's time to run a full backup -- but doesn't tell me H by mch42
I've been using File Backup daily for half a year on Vista 64-bit Ultimate. The backup tool has been appending incrementals to the initial backup set which was created half a year ago. Now (finally) Vista prompts me to do a new full backup with this message in the system tray: "It's time to run a full backup. Click to start a new full backup." Now, when I click that message, it just opens...

Using Favorite Links by McAlex
I can't right click a favorite subfolder and drag it to Favorite Links and create a shortcut. When I relase the mouse button I am not asked to select: "create shortcut here". The bar which moved to the left pane, to Favorite Links, when draging, just disappears and the drag operation is ignored. Is it because I might have deleted some sample links when I was trying and fiddling to use...

Searching for files by attributes by Ray[_6_]
When I use Vista's "advanced search" function, I can specify location, date, size, name, tags, and author. Is there any way to search by file attributes, e.g., to find all files with the archive bit set? -- Ray (remove the Xs to reply)
