Not sure if anone else noticed this problem, but in Vista when you move folders between disks, the source folders are not deleted (even though they are empty). You have go though and manually delete the empty source folders. Is there a fix for this yet?

Excel XLSX files fail to synchronize by Bob
Hi, My Documents folder is a redirected folder and therefore by default, it is always available offline. Why is it that if I edit my Excel file is in 2003 (xls) format, it almost always goes offline and needs to be synchronized manually? (Note that the file really isn't synchronizing as I do not see it change on the server until I do a manual sync).

Files - Heirarchy Views by GW
Is there a way in Vista to view the drill down of my file structure? I want to be able to highlight a file and drag it to a new folder. I used to be able to do this in XP.

Moving drive from old PC to new PC by sweetsco
I recently moved a hard drive to a new computer and I can't gain read/write access to my old folders. My computer puked. I'm pretty sure it's the motherboard. So, I bought a new tower and moved the hard drive. Old system XP, new system Vista. I can see all the old files and have even transferred mail ID's to the vista system, but I can't take the "read only" attribute off any of the...

If I go to another program, say Windows Media Playeropen show all files; there it is. What is causing this and how do I correct it? Thanks, Robert

How to Bulk Unblock Files by Sue & Bill
I think since XP SP2 days, a new security attribute was added to files such that files that came in by IM, email, or across the network were separately identified and blocked from being executed. To unblock, one need to go the Properties of the file and then click the Unblock button. XP was rather lax in enforcing blocking. But Vista appears to block everything, including html files inside a...

"Date Accessed" attribute not updating by bob w
For numerous file types (pictures, movies, music amoung others), Vista does not seem to update the "date accessed" file attribute after the file has been opened/viewed. Does anyone know why? Or alternatively, what needs to be done to get the file attribute to be updated?

I have 30GBs of files that are not showing up in any folder - HELP!!! by Nibiruian6[_2_]
I figured it out -- you have to shut off "System Restore" in System Protection and then the hidden backup files will be deleted - then you turn System Resore back on - but you have to do this every so often to remove all of the super hidden restore shadow files - thanks for nothing forum!!! -- Nibiruian6 Posted via http://www.vistaheads.com

explorer - "computer" by AardvarksRUs
Couple questions about explorer.exe and what it shows as "Computer". Is there a way to configure "Windows Explorer", which I think is still invoked by "explorer.exe", to open by default in the quasi/pseudo-directory shown in explorer and on desktop as "computer", what previously I think had been shown as "My Computer"? How would I call this up from the command line, including as an/the...
