Stopping Vista organising my MP3's into folders by Kevin Heneghan
Hi - I wonder if anyone can help me. Last year I bought a new PC with Vista. I had a music folder with about 3,000 MP3's in it, the tracks just being listed alphabetically, by artist. When I copied this folder to my new PC, Vista organised all the tracks into folders according to the artist. This means that instead of having a folder full of tracks, all separate, they're now in a huge number...

Need Help with Vista Undelete Files by Richard K
I accidentally deleted files from the Vista Home computer. There were about 5 folders in My Pictures, each folder containing several hundred pictures. The files were too large for the Recycle Bin so it was bypassed permenantly deleted. I realized this RIGHT AFTER I did it so I have not altered the hard drive. I am thinking the files (.jpg) are still there but I need to undelete...

find big files by shakey[_2_]
I am a XP person trying to help a old lady with a Vista problem. Something has used up 245Gb of her 250GB HD. This is after using all built in disk maintenance programs such as Disk Cleanup. She originally had zero bites free but I deleted some unused programs and recovered some space "5GB". Some programs I cannot delete, I believe this is due to the OS not having room to shuffle files. Is...

Why UAC pop up for certain file operation? by james
When deleting a file, sometimes UAC pops up requesting confirmation, sometimes it doesn't. When running a .exe file, sometimes UAC pops up (usually newly downloaded files) and sometimes it doesn't (installed .exe). What governs this behavior? How can I make UAC not pop up on a particular file?

How to restore User's profile's junctions? by Eric B.
Hi, I have a user's profile that has crashed. Luckily, I have full daily backups of his profile, so can easily restore the files. However, my problem is all the special junctions that Vista and Win7 have added to the profile directories for backwards-compatibility. No backup software I have seen (short of complete imaging software) seems to backup and/or restore junction points.

Crosslinked directories by Alan Biddle
I seem to have "cross linked" directories. For example: C:\Documents and Settings\Alan\AppData\Roaming\SatPC32\Kepler C:\Users\Alan\AppData\Roaming\SatPC32\Kepler However, they reference the same contents. That is, if you copy a file to one, it appears in both, and if you delete a file in one, it disappears from both. There are literally dozens of them, similar to the above except for
