    If you want to format a hard disk as NTFS in Linux, I suggest the best approach is to Google for "Linux format disk NTFS" (without the double quotes) and choose the most intelligible hit!

    I disliked TeraCopy when it first came out, and stuck with Robocopy, whose foibles I am familiar with (/XJ, anyone?!).

    Would it be worth trying Robocopy?

    You haven't explained what you mean by "it doesn't accept this line". Do you mean the line gets ignored? Or the BATch script crashes? It seems very unusual, because you'd possibly expect problems...

    I agree with Paul. Unless there's a very unusual character in that line, it should work OK.

    Tab delimiting is probably going to be a problem, since BATch files dislike some special characters.
    Without the tabs it would be a fairly trivial task, using a technique rather like Basic...

    Can anyone explain what "the product [TrueCrypt] is no longer secure now that Microsoft has ended support for Windows XP" actually means? I can't see any obvious connection.
