comment Synchronizing e-mail using one IMAP and one POP client
IMAP doesn't actually REQUIRE that, it is simply the normal operation. Nothing stops you removing the emails whenever you like.

comment Batch script to mass rename by modify date
Why does needing to run often block the use of software? Do you mean that it will be run on lots of computers? I also assume this is Windows?

comment Sync issues with IMAP and Outlook 2013
It seems that the combination of full moon and sunspots is causing a downvote-fest. Can downvoters please add comments as to why otherwise people can never improve their answers.

comment How to backup a flash drive automatically each time I plug it in?
I suspect that @techie007's edit has put it on a better footing. It is when people ask for recommendations for software that they get kicked out. Thanks for the +1, hopefully the rewrite will prompt the original downvoter to change their mind.

comment Gaming blew fuse and causes funny smell: how to overcome?
A chance, not a big one, actually a pretty small one - still not wise to mess with electricity. Actually since we now know that you are in the UK, we also know that there should be another fuse in the lead to the PSU as this is required in the UK as is having an earthed lead.

I would say that your PSU is marginal, most PSU's, especially cheap ones do not actually cope well with maximum power draw. If you still have a working library close by, you may be able to borrow a power monitor from them as they were made available to all Libraries - at least in England.

comment What is the purpose of a 2.1 amp charger if USB 2.0 can only draw 500mA
Also worth noting that Windows 8.1 enforces that limit. Older versions of Windows did not. This means that some non-compliant (but useful) hardware no longer works on W8.1

comment Nothing is saved in Word 2013 when shutting of PC (macros, cross-references)
Do you mean that your VBA macro's are disappearing? What happens if you make a change to the ribbon - is that saved?
