Deleteing Files in a folder based on date! by wiseteufel via WindowsKB.com
Hi - I have a folder that contains about 250,000 zipped files.

I kindly NEED a DOS batch file or some script that I would enable me to delete the files that are older...

Vista Indexing Question by Clearwire Mail
I went to RUN.... SERVICES.MSC and disabled the Windows Search service. I don't want indexing on my computer. However, when going to the Properties of my C: drive, the check mark is ON for indexing my drive. So which is it? Note: I "think" that if I uncheck the box that shows indexing on my C; drive, it will alter the characteristics of EVERY file on the computer for non-indexing, and...

Biondi font missing on Vista by Alana1385
Hi I have Windows Vista on my Dell laptop and I frequently used the Biondi font that came with vista. Just the other day the font seems to have gone missing and all the programs I use, such as Adobe Photoshop say that the font is missing and has been replaced. Does anyone know of a way I can get the font back without having to totally reinstall Vista? Thanks! Alana

File Extensions by dcoryh192
Hi. Using the forum I have found Control Panel - Default Programs. But i want to be able to make the extensions show on certain extensions, like in XP. Like say I have PowerISO, and I wan't windows to show me what is a .daa and what is an .iso. I really don't want to turn on the option to show all known file types, because I don't want to see all of them. Just ones that I chose. I know you could...

Problem moving folders by Bob
Has anyone, maybe a MVP, heard if or when Microsoft is going to fix the problem with moving folders in the Windows Explorer? For example I have folders A, B, and C. Each had multiple subfolders. Assuming that a copy of A also exists in C and some files in A have been updated. If I attempt to move A to C I get some dialogs asking if I want to replace/skip/etc. I select to replace the files and...

Host to Host USB Connections by Patrick Whittle
I bought a new computer and I want to transfer all my files from my old computer. Does Windows Vista support host-to-host? As soon as I plugged my USB cable into the computers, I was asked for a device driver. Device drivers are a pretty standard thing, but, is host-to-host not supported at Microsoft now?

I miss XP's 'Move To' and 'Copy To' buttons - any fixes? by Aaron[_7_]
I realize I can can 'drag & drop' or use the Edit menu items, or any of the myriad methods available since Win3.0; but those buttons were much easier to use. Is there any easy way in Vista to have those buttons (no manual registry hacks)? Any solutions from Microsoft? Or any third party solutions?

Vista & indexing network drives by Valisystem
According to Vista's help system in the final release, Vista does not index the contents of network shares. It also doesn't appear to ask for help from Windows Server 2003 indexing service, when those files are indexed on the server. I have not been able to discover a way to do a fast search through the full content of files in a folder on a server. Is this really true? If so, this is a huge...

System mis-reporting disk usage by rayhorn13
I am using Windows Vista (32-bit) on my computer. Lately, I have noticed that the reported "used space" on my hard drive (via right-click/properties) keeps rising dramatically while I add very little to my computer. I then made sure that I had turned on options to show system files and hidden OS files so that I could add up the used space. What I found is that all of the files on my...

Indexing Options / Advanced Options by Hike_Mike
Perhaps I am not using the 'help' properly with the right syntax, but I can't find any information on the advanced option for indexing file types. (how does one use help to find this by the way)... What I see are the extensions and a check box and a filter description and radio buttons below. What I want to ensure is that my email is being indexed, so I presume that is the .PST file. If I...
