Running Vista Enterprise on a Toshiba M7. The tablet is a member of our domain. Configured documents and pictures folder to relocate on server. Configured each for offline always available. Between the two folders, the number of files is roughly 10,000.

Now I have changed entirely to vista and have it installed on my primary partion and want to delete the old copy on the data partion... problem is that I can't. When I go to delete the windows folder, it fails, telling me the files are write protected. When I try...

Vista Start Menu Options by Speedy
In Vista, StartAll Programs - I get no "sort by name" option. Also I have not seen an option yet for "highlight recently installed programs" as was available in XP. Other than that I think Vista is superb from what I have explored so far... ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes. To vote for this suggestion,...

Boycott Vista by x1a4
http://badvista.fsf.org/ “Vista is an upsell masquerading as an upgrade. It is an overall regression when you look at the most important aspect of owning and using a computer: your control over what it does. Obviously MS Windows is already proprietary and very restrictive, and *well worth rejecting*. But the new *'features' in Vista are a Trojan Horse* to smuggle in even more restrictions....

Group By Type - The [username] Folder by ZenithPlacidity
for some reason, the group by option does not work for me in the Personal Folder, the folder that has your username, and contains folders like: Music, Pictures, Favorites etc. does anyone know how to fix this? this is a very nice feature, as it organizes all the files in the folder under groups.

Change location of "Public" folder? by Boris
Hi, I would like to be able to change the location of everything contained in C:\Users\Public to, let's say, D:\Public Right-clicking, for example, the folder "Public Documents" in Explorer presents a "Location" tab that shows me where that folder is located, but does not give me an option to change that location (as it did with the user-level "Documents" folder).

Backup And Restore Centre, to a network drive by Mark Gillespie
Hi, I am trying to use RTM Backup Centre to backup files to a network drive (in a workgroup). However, for some reason it's not working. The only thing worth mentioning, is the server is a Samba server. I can access the folder I want using explorer, read, write, delete, create files and directories without any problem, however the backup centre insists on prompting for a ...

File Locations to Avoid Virtualization by Wayne Hartell
This has probably been asked before but I'm running out of time to get an answer and my initial search turned up empty. We have an application that runs as a stand alone application and also a hosted "module" of 3rd party applications. We have found just recently that one of our 3rd party host applications is certified on Vista and seeing our Stand Alone application works on Vista (after...

CD burning hangs by Peter Meinl
I tried to burn a CD with some mp3 files on a Plextor PX-760A SATA burner using Viste X86 RTM. Vista seems to format the CD OK. After dropping the files the green progess bar in the address bar progresses slower and slower. Even when I let it run for hours the burning does not complete. I tried using CD-R and CD-RW. The cancel dialog hangs. When I end it using task manager Vista Explorer...

Favorite Links pane in Windows Explorer by Thwackum
Is there a way to get rid of it? I know I can tuck the Folders bar away at the bottom, but what I want is exactly the opposite - Folders pane full-size and no Favorite Links. Any ideas?

I am having the same problem with Vista build 6000. The OS installed with no problems, but then over the past two weeks it has become impossible to select multiple files. The "Select All" feature is disabled. The registry changes did not seem to work for me. Has anyone found a solution to restoring folders to the correct format? It seems like the "Apply to Folder" buttons are not...
