    So simple, I would have mentioned that I've only "progressed" to version 2.27 had I known. So many upgrades these days are not related to core component improvement that I steer clear if the sailing...

    Yes, but that would mean someone accessed it and knowingly falsified it. Some things could just be a result of improper settings such as date from whatever device recorded the meta data as well.

    I know how y'all feel...I loved New Coke!

    One of the reasons Apps are so anemic is because they are self-contained and depend entirely on the programmer(s)-but hey, they're safe to use eh, as...

    I had Office 2000 running on W8, well it still is for all I know but I'm not running W8 now. It worked fine for me but Libre is significantly more capable. I especially like how well it handles a...

    Restore previous versions (RPV) is tied in with restore points, hence some of the confusion and another of the reasons RPV is unreliable or at least highly variable as to a full recovery situation.

    Oh I agree with you wholeheartedly on that respect but for those of us who do not need the "lowest common denominator" type protection, the inconvenience (weekly) outweighs the benefits [never...

    Is this problem reporting common to all sorts of destinations, say network and other devices, or just to local USB drives? Are the local drives portable? If it was just the local drives where the...

    I think LibreOffice is terrific myself. You certainly don't have to use the common startup icon. Just create a direct shortcut to LibreWriter (swriter.exe) and any of the others you want and put it...

    There are so many factors that affect creation and storage of previous version data that it would most likely be a very unreliable method for recovering any significant data. For example, most of my...

    That would still cause quite a stir it seems if it were free to Win 7 SP1 users; I have to think that's more rumor than possibility (wishful thinking for how contrite MS is after the Win 8...

    What I do is restore a previous registry (provided the BSOD doesn't repeat immediately) and then see if the BSOD repeats or not. One needs one or more repeats of a BSOD to be sure it's a problem.
