Icons change to white by bob b
I have noticed that several short cuts I have added to the top of my "start" menu have turned into just plain old white letter icons and have lost their distinctive icons. Is there a reason for this and can I get the icons back? Thanks in advance. Bob

How can I merge C:\ with another partition? by MadBull
Hi, I'm one of those people who thought it would be a cool idea to partition 20GB for Vista out of a 320GB hard drive for "aesthetic" reasons. Now I'm falling back on this idea because my programs are installed ona different drive letter and do not show up on the Program Files. On top of that, if I get a virus or some sort of anoyying malware, formatting the vista partition does NOT make my...

System Restore VSS problems. by jedeco
I have a restore point created each night as a scheduled task and they all finish successfully but don't always show up as a choice in system restore. (I start the system restore process just to see my restore points, is there a better way!?) and sometimes the one created won't show up, or all of sudden one day is missing and it's not the oldest date, but the second or third newest. Today i...

Search partial file name by gamerguy
Where is the setting on Vista which lets you change your search settings, so that you can search only part of the file name, and the file will come up. Someone changed it on my dad's computer, and I have been looking for about an hour, and I still can't find it.

Grooming Windows Vista backups by Marc Hoffman
Hi all... I'm having problems with a client running Windows Vista backup. Their external backup drive to which Vista is backing up data is filling up. Is there any way to tell Vista to "groom" the data, removing older data to keep the drive afloat? Or, is there way to have Vista completely reset the entire backup set on a regular schedule? Thank you!

Long file names=off, dir name with repetitious char like (50)length. ""Search will not work in that dir "" by pzam
I have long file names turned off on my system as it helps speed up things. I don't know if that is involved but I noticed if I create a directory in vista ultimate sp2 and make the dir name a repetitious char that search goes brain dead. example (1111111111111111111111111111111111111111,) (dir1.htm) (dir2.txt)

Does Vista use a file system when burning CD's that XP can't read? by 98 Guy
If files are copied (drag'n'dropped) to a CD-R while using Vista, are those files accessible if the CD is put into an XP machine? I've heard of some first-hand accounts where this seems to be the case. Does Vista use a file system on burned CD's or DVD's that XP can't read? If so, does Micro$oft provide a driver for XP to be able to read them?

Managing External Hard Drive - "You'll need to provide administrator permission" by Opethian
Hello everyone. I'm hoping that someone here will be able to help me in this predicament. Ever since I shifted to Vista, it's been a very different experience compared to XP. It certainly feels a lot more stable and faster (believe it or not!), but productive-wise, I find it a tad too protective. Off to my issues. The first one being an issue regarding using an external hard drive. I have a...

Want to Move /User and /Program Files folders by [email protected]
I want to prepare an existing setup for solid state drives. I want to make my C: drive as read only as possible. I would like to move the contents of /User and /Program Files off of the C: drive to new empty drives and mount point these to the new drives. I believe that I need to do this while booted from either a maintenance partition or a recovery boot of some sort. I have a few questions I...
