Have you tried right-clicking on 'Libraries' and selecting 'Restore default' (I think the option is under Windows) yet? This may resolve the library name even if it does not return the content. This could be moved manually after the fact, if necessary, I'm sure.

You could setup the user group to have limited access within the Security tab of the folder/drive containing the files. This will allow you to set the user group to have read and write access only and not delete. In order to disable a USB device you could possible run a script through Group Policy to modify the registry.

For basic organizational purposes, compressing the folders on a per-client basis—or per-project basis—simply makes it easier to reference the material later on. I generally divide up my client work folders between the generic, sundry stuff like notes and invoices. And then have code and related assets in another folder. I use Mac OS X and what I like to do ...

You could try using a Live Linux distro. Basically every Linux distribution nowadays comes with a bootable live medium; with it you can run the whole system /from a CD/DVD, an USB pendrive, and so on) without the need of installing it on your hard-drive. Since it is a different system it won't follow Windows' administration setting, and you can easily ...

The file is probably actually deleted, but a handle to it is locked in memory someplace and won't release until the system is shutdown. Simplest thing to try first: Reboot the system. Once it's done rebooting, see if the file still exists and if it does try deleting it again. If you're still having problems after that, then perhaps check out the answers ...

My first instinct is to not try to write a program or script to do this, but to use a ready-made mp3 renaming program to do it for you. There are different ones available (of varying quality) for different OS's. Or if you're gung-ho on the renaming idea, you could use gnu tools (available in linux/unix/mac, or Cygwin) like sed or awk, or tr & cut & ...

In Windows? I don't know "Bulk File Renamer". I would use Total Commander's "Multi Rename" tool. Better yet, I'd probably work with perl or awk from a Cygwin terminal for a more comprehensive script solution. That would go too far for here though. Just from a regex perspective, this works for me in TC with your filename (but only if files do not contain ...

Are the files really getting their size changed? Make sure you are comparing their sizes with the same program, that the program does not round file sizes to different units, and that you are seeing actual file size, and not "Size on disk", which accounts for compression, sector alignment, etc., and could be different on different disks. If they are ...

For Windows Explorer at least, all special characters are sorted before normal characters. You could try using a different alphabet letters, such as Roman, Russian or Chinese characters. I'm not sure if it will translate cross platform.

Easily automated Authentication, encryption Widely adopted The destination server will need to be running an sshd server, such as OpenSSH.
