I'm a software developer professionally, and I have dabbled in programming for fun at home, including some interactive fiction work. I primarily use C++, VB6, and VB Script at work. For IF, I use mostly Inform 7, although I did learn ALAN as well.

comment SSD: “The volume is too fragmented to complete this operation”
@Cerveser Good link, but it sounds like defrag is really needed for the Windows OS/FS more than for the physical drive itself.

comment Why does my Windows Explorer no longer refresh itself?
-1 This is more cumbersome than a simple refresh, and doesn't resolve the problem.

comment File timestamps inconsistently update on network drive in Windows 7
Sorry, I'm not sure what exactly you're asking. What do you mean by "get", precisely? If I have the folder open with the files in it, and e.g. I build an .exe, the .exe's timestamp doesn't change. Even if I copy paste it somewhere else, the timestamp in the new location will be correct, but the original will be wrong until I refresh the original folder.

comment How can I force Windows to display the seconds in the date modified/created column of Explorer?
Yes, I was looking for a native solution. Most of those answers are still just showing individual file timestamps. The closest to a good solution is the forfiles answer, but it's not convenient because the results aren't formatted or sortable.
