I've never been a fan of readme files. They are fine for project files where you will likely need note of building an application, or for distribution packages where you might need extra information on installing a package. But sometimes you want to add a comment to a file (perhaps you want to make a note of where the file came from). Some picture formats (jpg, for example) support an internal comment. And sure, Windows supports comments (sorta). But you have to Right mouse click -> properties -> details -> comment and even then you only get to see the …

##How to set up file synchronization using BitTorrent Sync (part 1) There are a number of services that offer file sharing/syncing via the "cloud". The free versions come with limitations on file size. As well, DropBox suffers from security issues in that encryption is done at the server meaning that any files you upload can be made available to the authorities by court order. SpiderOak encryption is done at the client which is more secure, but again, storage space is limited. In all cases, you are dependent on the availability of a server over which you have no control. You …

I'm using Windows XP, and I have a Hitachi 2TB drive that I disconnected earlier today. When I reconnected the USB cable I heard it come on, but the prompt asking how I want to open the drive did not. When I checked My Computer it was no longer named "Hitachi" but "Local Disk (E:)" instead. When I open it, none of my folders show. When I check Disk Properties it shows the normal percentages of used/free disk space. Please help!

I want to copy a folder full of folders to a backup on another disk. But if a duplicate filename already exists on the other disk, I want Windows to prompt to ask whether or not to replace the file for each file separately. Windows XP just gives me the option to replace all of the files or not copy the folder. Only if I copy only one folder will it prompt individual files. There are hundreds of folders in this structure, but less than 100 duplicate file names. But I don't know where the duplicates are, and do not …

I am making a workout software, and it holds multiple accounts. The acounts are saved in a directory like: C:\Software Name\athletes\John Smith\ C:\Software Name\athletes\Veronica Shelby\ C:\Software Name\athletes\Tyler Front\ I want the ListBox to list each name (i.e. John Smith, Veronica Shelby, etc.) as its own item. I need it to be ONLY the name, not the entire pathway. NOTE: The names are folders; they are NOT files.

I can't access any folders (control panel included), or certain programs (most programs, only windows based programs such as media player still work). The programs and folders are actually running, as they are showing as running when I open the task manager, but I can't access them anywhere. They do not show on my task bar, or anywhere else. Also, when I load up my computer, all the programs that normally start are running (they show on task manager), but they do not show in the bottom right hand corner of the task bar, nor can I access them.

Dear all, I need to copy a set of files every once in a while from my build env to a shared drive. The set of files are same, names may vary but they come with same extension.

When Microsoft was developing Windows Vista (and they continued this in Windows 7) they decided to add a security feature to the Program Files directories. This feature is that all the directories are read only. The idea behind this is to prevent malicious software from overwriting your exe/dll files. This, of course, brings up the problem: Where do I put my application specific files that are created at runtime. This tutorial will answer that question! One thing you will notice with Windows is that there are a lot of special folders (My Documents, Desktop, My Music, My Pictures, etc.) and …

I am relatively new to Python and just have a couple quick questions about using file paths in Python code. 1) As I was recently playing around with the command line, I could not get a file path to work correctly unless I used forward slashes in the path...for example: [code=python]reader = csv.reader(open('C:/Folder/Folder/file.txt', 'wb'))[/code] However, I wrote a program previously that used the backslash and everything worked just fine. Is there a time to use the backslash and time to use the forward slash or does it not matter? 2) I was also trying to use the path to a …

Hi, I was wondering if there are any scripts out there that work similar to a normal windows browser. I'm not looking for a folder tree type of view though (as you would see in windows explorer) but more of a "single folder at a time" type of view. I attached a picture to demonstrate. "1" would be the first folder and "2" the second folder and so on, however far down the tree it goes... Thanks, Ashton.

Hey, I'm new here and I wanna know how can I use the default Windows folders in my code in VB 6. For example, in VB.Net I can use My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.MyDocuments shorcuts to know the path of folders like My Music, My Docs, etc. But I don't know how to do it in VB 6. We already know that paths aren't the same in all computers cuz I can have two hard disks and My Music can be in another hard disk than C. So that's the question. Thanks for reading.

Hi there, I'm attempting to design an "online store" for my website, but I'm struggling with something that I'd imagine is actually very simple. Basically, I want store.php to be my parent page, with each category falling underneath that, and each product falling underneath that. For example: [url]www.rjt-online.com/store/category/product[/url] I've tried doing this using folders (i.e. creating a folder called store, and one within it called category etc.) This works to an extent, but when you peel back the URL and type in store/category, it simply displays the directory and the category folder. I want it to display the category page, …
