I can't say for sure, but I believe with software mirroring (not a fan of software doing the job of hardware), once the mirror is broken, it would need to be recreated and resynced each time. It's...

For the purpose you want, mirroring and setting up arrays aren't relevant. If you want to set up a way to keep your data backed up, look into sync software, like SyncToy or FreeFileSync. You pick a...

It is what it is. That's how the system works. Honestly, you're just spending a lot of time and effort worrying about something that doesn't warrant it. The reason Layback Bear made that comment...

Thing is, it isn't causing confusion at all. I manage 30 laptops, all running Windows 7 Pro. I'd say 5 of those 30 people are tech comfortable, much less tech savvy. I'm very glad these files are...

Think about who the largest percentage of users are? They aren't power-users. As soon as you realize those facts, you'll see why the files are hidden, and why that makes Windows 7 extremely...

Why is that ridiculous? No one said those files were useless. They just don't need to be seen because they don't need to be used. Be thankful the files are copied. I'm still not sure why this...

Holy necroposts, Batman! The reason is, there's no "reason" to use or edit those files during normal usage, so they don't need to be visible. Why is the hood of your car located outside of the...

I didn't realize that some packages of Office 365 come with the installable version of Office, aka the Desktop Apps. We already have a CRM system in place from Microsoft at the non-profit discounted...

Honestly, I haven't. Can you store documents locally and work on them using Office 365? I'd also have to look into how you'd open and edit a document from our SharePoint site (which isn't hosted by...

One of the main reasons I was hoping to stick to MS Office was our extensive use of a SharePoint 2013 Intranet. I'll definitely download OpenOffice and play around with it. It has to be easy to...

Looking to Purchase Office 2010/2013 (frustration mounts)

I'm the IT Manager for a small, non-profit. I need roughly 35-40 licenses for Office, or an Open License that allows that many installs. In years past, I always purchased these things from...

She doesn't have any Clipboard helper apps, or anything called Netbeans. I ran the command to clear the clipboard, and it tentatively seemed to be working for me. I'm having her try it out after...

Just because it is rated at USB 2.0, doesn't mean it will run fast, either. I have 10 different flash drives on my desk right now, and some of the generic ones that were giveaways run dog slow...
