comment How can a system disc image be restored?
You said "The image is restored by putting it on a bootable...". So what do you mean now "You boot to the bootable media that Acronis creates"? Do I have to put the disc image on that bootable media or not? Acronis didn't create anything (besides the disc image file). EDIT: Oh, sorry. I didn't notice it wasn't you that commented. What you (Reeves) said does make sense.

comment How can a system disc image be restored?
So if I just save a system image of the disc onto an HDD (which contains additional stuff) - I can't restore it without first using some other computer to change that into a bootable HDD?

+1. Not what I'm looking for, but it fits the bill.

comment ftp-client works fine. ftp-tls-client fails on one computer and works on another
Thanks. Some more info: The server is on Windows Server 2012. And I tried connecting directly to the modem and it made no difference.

comment Search in Word “headings” only
Thanks. Though this information might be helpful in certain cases - it doesn't allow me to search in all headings, only in a specific heading level. (Besides being lots of work to get to.)

comment “Add to Dictionary” to a specific custom dictionary
Thanks. Can't believe I missed it. I was looking at that dialog box (while the default was highlighted, of course) and didn't notice the disabled button right there saying "Change Default"! Thanks again.

comment Concrete cases for CMD/BATCH use
@techie007 C# was a minor side point. (Edited out now because I see it was interpreted to be a question of batch et al. vs C#.) My question is what automated actions are done in the real world in any language. (Excluding those that would warrant a dedicated application, of course.)

comment Concrete cases for CMD/BATCH use
Your answer to my question is: Looking up domain accounts info / network locations / clearing temp files of a running application. (The part about CMD vs C# is not my question. I just mentioned what I did to clarify myself.) Thanks.

Couldn't that be achieved by mmc.exe?

comment How many primary partitions can be created on a computer running Windows 8?
@HarryJohnston It seems that that was what I read. Thanks to your comment I searched and found that new computers that want to be Windows-8-certified (or something like that) must use UEFI. You can convert your comment into an answer. Thanks!

Thanks. So can I change from one to another?

Note that commenting on an answer doesn't inform the question-asker of that comment, only the answerer (unless specified by @name).

comment Put more things on a bootable flash drive?
+1 Thanks. It sounds from your answer like a bootable drive is like any other, except it has special files. If so, why would there be a special file type as iso, and iso burning software, or the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool? We could simply have files and copy them onto the flash drive.
