    Easily fixed

    I create a new partition called Skydrive, and sync it with my data partition. I then sync the Skydrive partition to OneDrive. So the only time OneDrive wants to transfer files to the cloud is when I...

    The best thing about Eudora (I assume you're talking Eudora 7) is that it is ridiculously easy to install, reinstall and back up. Install it as administrator in your data partition - say D:\Data (or...

    I use Omnipage Ultimate, expensive but sometimes offered cheaply. Very efficient conversion of all files into Word or Excel. But no good if you can't install software.

    Encryption is useful for a range of activities other than whole disk encrypting. For example, I use it to encrypt my backup files on external hard drives, to reduce risks if a drive is stolen. I...
  5. Please review OneDrive and discuss cloud backup options

    Lincoln: I am disappointed that you dropped OneDrive from your analysis. I have no use for versioning, or rather I manage my own versioning system, and absolutely do not want or need my OneDrive...

    Good point Berton. Another trick that I find useful is the use of Alt and drag the pointer to select eg, a column of first letters of the items in a list. Then you can press Shift F3 to change their...

    I am glad to see some mild to strong supporters of W8 commenting here. I am among the latter, but think MS made a big mistake in getting 8 to default to Metro/Modern, that they have partly rectified...

    Hi: cannot view the video, as apparently "the uploader has not made this video available in your country (Australia)'. Not a big deal and not sure what is the real reason, but thought I would let you...

    It certainly is a struggle, but worth it. I put my customised buttons on the quick access toolbar, but they could equally go on the ribbon. Once you have got it working, you will (probably) find that...

    Seems to me (for what it is worth) that the only reason to take a partition or disk image is to be able to restore your OS and applications in the event that you lose your OS partition (fire, theft,...

    Katherine Murray cues tepid applause for the replacement of SkyDrive by OneDrive - however IMO it should be much more than tepid. OneDrive in the cloud finally and fully mirrors my OneDrive folder on...

    Good point RG, thanks!. I take Macrium Reflect images over the first few weeks with a new machine (about 3 - one as new, one half-way through software installation and one fully-installed), so I can...

    All user settings, macros etc in 2007 are contained in Normal.dotm - the normal template. So the key is to bring that across into 2013 or 365. There are two ways to do this - one easy, one less so....

    IMO you should have no need for a third party imager on Windows 8. In principle Recimg will take a full image of your OS drive, which will be used instead of the built-in refresh or reimage option....

    Hi Alan. I have run many programs from Office 2003 together with Office 2007, 2010, 2013 and now 365. OK I only ran Word/Excel 2003 with 2007, but had no problems. I ran Visio, Project and Access...

    I guess I would like to make a quick post too. My view is that there is almost no benefit to downgrading from 8 to 7. Even without installing a Start app, 8 can be made to work better than 7 with...

    Since Vista, that IMO has been BAD advice. Windows has really easy partitioning built in. Just reduce the size of the operating system partition to a reasonable level (I use 150 gigs) then cut up the...

    Yahoo seems to be the problem. I agree with JF - around 10 email contacts of mine have been hacked (that I know of) and all have been on yahoo. Anyone know why that is?

    My view is that MP3jam is illegal. In reality it is no different to the various dodgy MP3 download sites. It would be useful sometime for WS to review the various legal sites like eMusic so we can...

    Try Eudora 7 - IMO still the best as long as you don't have to deal with some foreign fonts. Works fine on 7 and 8.
