  1. Hi, wavy, Thanks for the suggestions and the...

    Hi, wavy,

    Thanks for the suggestions and the links. The LawPRO article was interesting, but since it was published in 2004, I'm not sure that the list of metadata scrubbers it offers will be very...
  2. Hi, petesmst, Thanks for the suggestion. I...

    Hi, petesmst,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had tried that method in Windows Explorer, but if memory serves me the "copy with all possible properties removed" had a grand total of one line of...
  3. Hi, access-mdb, Thanks for your post. I've...

    Hi, access-mdb,

    Thanks for your post. I've now had a chance to download Exiftool and play with it a bit. It seems to have the potential to edit metadata, but unless I've missed something big, it...

    Don't want to get off topic, but here is yet another alternative for getting rid of unwanted callers, both computer fraudsters and others.

    Thanks to all for this excellent discussion!

    The core of the problem, however, is not anything technical, but rather human nature. Humans vary, some being naturally savvy, hard-working, and...

    Hi, Jim,

    I appreciate your note of caution, but I am assuming that the instructions given in the forum postings by the developer regarding what to change and how to change it (referenced in Post...

    Well, Rui, for starters, when I went to the SQL Workbench download page, it gave me the following prerequisites:

    To be able to install and run MySQL Workbench 5.2 your System needs to have...
  9. Hi, Rui and Joe, Many thanks for your helpful...

    Hi, Rui and Joe,

    Many thanks for your helpful replies, but I think that this is all starting to look like trying to kill a flea with an elephant gun. All I want to do is to delete an occasional...
  10. Hi, Rui, Thanks for your prompt response. I...

    Hi, Rui,

    Thanks for your prompt response. I have to say that your statement that "with such a system, you really don't edit files" left me puzzled, as surely any database stores records in some...
  11. Software to open and edit .MYD, .MYI, and .frm files

    I last played with database files almost 30 years ago, in the days of DOS, so I need to state right up front that I am totally unfamiliar with MySQL and its file structure. However, I need to find...

    Hi, BKB,

    Unfortunately, I never did find any method which would work, so I eventually gave up. Naturally, once I gave up, the problem went away at some point, as I haven't been plagued with it in...

    Hi, Dr. Who,

    I'm with you big-time on the need for regular backups, but I'd like to add one further precaution. I'm no techie, but after owning and playing with computers for almost 30 years,...
  14. Hi, Clive, Thanks for your post. Yes, I've...

    Hi, Clive,

    Thanks for your post. Yes, I've been able to use that technique to remove a USB flash drive when the Safely Remove Hardware icon gets surly and won't let it go, but unfortunately that...
  15. I agree that flash drives can fail all too...

    I agree that flash drives can fail all too easily, which is why I backup my 1.7GB of portable apps and utilities to an image file on my HDD, then not only backup my HDD regularly, but also use that...
  16. Hi, Ted, Thanks for your post. Yes, I would...

    Hi, Ted,

    Thanks for your post.

    Yes, I would temporarily copy everything to the HDD that way, but with 1.7GB to copy, it will just take a bit of time to complete. However, my main concern now...

    Hi, Zig and Browni,

    Thanks for your posts. Yes, I've used a backup program to create backup disk images of that flash drive on my HDD, as that flash drive has all my portable apps and utilities...
  18. How to get rid of "Compressed (zipped) Folders" popup?

    When I plug in a USB flash drive and click on it in Windows Explorer (I'm using W7, SP1), I get the following popup message:

    36808

    If I click "OK," it does nothing, so I have to click "Cancel"...

    Hi, Rui,

    At the moment, it does appear that it is at least possible to create backups on her machine, which is a huge relief, though I'll put that theory to the test when I backup our computers...
  20. Hi, Rui, I appreciate the suggestion and just...

    Hi, Rui,

    I appreciate the suggestion and just started another test by plugging the HDD directly into port A on my wife's PC. The AutoPlay window still takes a very long time (probably most of a...

    Well, if the cables are the problem, why does the backup complete quickly and flawlessly on my machine when I am using the extension cable?

    I am certainly open to running another test and will...

    Hi, mrjimphelps, ruirib, and bbearen

    I've been working on testing various hardware combinations since mrjimphelps suggested that the problem might be in the USB interface, which is why I've...

    Hi, Wiley,

    Thanks for the idea, but I don't think that's the issue. As noted in my reply to Ruirib, my computer reads the 1TB HDD just fine, so the drive doesn't appear to be the problem. As to...
  24. Hi, Ruirib, Thanks for your prompt response. ...

    Hi, Ruirib,

    Thanks for your prompt response. When I tried doing a chkdsk /r on the external HDD from my wife's computer, it said: "The type of the file system is RAW. CHKDSK is not available...
  25. W7 only partially recognizes external HDD; Win. Explorer will, Win. Backup won't

    My wife and I are running two desktop units, both W7 Pro, SP1, and for a long time I have been faithfully backing up both computers each week to a 1TB external HDD. Lately, however, my wife's...
