As you can see from the output of your Dir command, you haven't really changed the filename. What's actually happening behind the scenes is that you are modifying your desktop.ini (a hidden, protected operating system file) file to display the string you defined in the registry, instead of the real directory name. This is part of a feature to allow the ...

a very quick and dirty way to have a ready shortcut, that doesn't require a lot of fuss - is to create a batch file named after the alias, in one of the directories that are a part of the PATH environment variable.

The last link you quoted seems to answer the question, and especially the part by @evilsoup: ffmpeg -i "concat:input0.mp3|input1.mp3|input2.mp3" -c libfdk_aac -b 64k output.m4b Ffmpeg is a third-party product and is not a standard part of Windows.

SyncToy may be fine for bidirectional sync, but the 'echo' mode is seriously flawed in my opinion. It doesn't do what you expect. I assumed the echo mode would work like this. You've specified a one directional copy from left to right. So you're saying the left side is the model for what you want. When you run the program you expect it to do everything ...

Copying is defined behavior for Send To... command, I don't think you can change that. Best solution for your case would be to add Move To... command to the context menu.

Generally, any computer that prints to a networked, non-local printer uses a driver for that printer to format the print data or uses a generic formatting method that the printer understands.

It looks like your file table is gone. The Windows installer doesn't recognize the old partition as a valid NTFS or FAT32 filesystem, so there is no Windows installation to repair. You cannot repair this from the Windows XP install CD.

I think that the error is related to the fact that XP wasn't meant for this new hardware. I'd strongly recommend migrating.

Advanced filesystem reconstruction is quite difficult for open source tools, when it comes to NTFS.

Proof of concept As you probably know, Windows XP with SP3 is not supported anymore. By running XP SP2 or earlier, you're missing many fixes and some new features, too.

Microsoft cannot just turn off Windows Update outright; they still host the old updates for at least a few years.

By using chkdsk /p /r, you are instructing it to perform an extensive check and correct any errors while recovering any readable information. Which means it is going to check the whole hard drive.

If you're on Windows and intend to use Vim for general editing (i.e. not just as a commit message editor for Git), I recommend to install the full Windows version (from http://www.vim.org/download.php). Then, you can launch the Vim Tutor from %ProgramFiles%\vim\vim74\vimtutor.bat.
