Argh... I don't want to go into this again, everywhere I go I get the whole "why don't you just learn linux and use RAID, etc." argument. I'm determined not to use RAID anymore, as I've lost upwards...

I'll get on it as soon as I return from the holidays... out of 10 dskchk iterations on 10 different 1.5 and 2tb drives, I only saw one or two that released the memory on completion.

Ok so I installed the x64 package, and the white paper assumes that I have a "rules" popup when I run it, but apparently this is not the case in win 7 (analysis only). I have no menu options for...

I need both, but you're right, programs handle themselves quite well. The SFF is necessary even just for the one explorer window, since in a given day I open a new explorer window many times, and...

Folder Mount Points & Windows Libraries

I haven't reached my limit yet, but I'm down to a few unused drive letters, so I've been looking for a way to reorganize. I tried mounting my media drives in NTFS folders, which works OK, but is...

Well I haven't personally learned the shortcuts, and I don't like tiling. With a large enough screen it is like having two desktops side by side, and I'm only really working between two at a time,...

Wow I'm curious. Do people really not get used to snapping? Personally that's one of the number one reasons I was excited about Win7. I have to say in a good days work, I probably slap windows right...

Well thanks cluberti, it seems that removing AVG has lightened my load quite a bit, as far as hang ups and "not responding". It's only been a few days but it's only hanging when the network is bogged...
