i mean, its a perfectly fine way to do it, im just interested if there was some particular reasoning to it

No particular reason. I was just tinkering around with it and seeing what could be done. I think I am going to do away with about 3 of them.

Couldn't have done it without you and the help of the other contributors in the thread.

Hello again.

how does W7 see Disk Volumes ?
I got to thinking about the differences between W7 and Mac OS X, and one thing i'd like to know is how W7 sees disk volumes. On the mac OS, the drives have mount points, so the volume just shows up on the desktop, or in the case of an optical or removable drive, appears when there is a cd or...
