This didn't work for me...

comment Multijunctions Windows
as far as win10 is concerned, dynamic disk functionality seems to be crap. At least in computer manager, I see no benefit in having them. Maybe you can "merge" multiple drives if they are unformated and basic but you can't seem to do much afterwards. I'm basically in the same scenario I was. I imagine I have to install more software to get what I want... I guess that is typical though? I really wonder what happens, if, say, I have a multi-disk dynamic disk and one goes bad? Do I lose everything?

comment Multijunctions Windows
@cybernard I guess I screwed up. I had a disk with two partitions. I extended one and win10 forced me to create a dynamic disk(why? I don't know). Now I can't seem to add the other disks to the dynamic disk. I thought I could add disks "after the fact" but windows 10 doesn't seem to support this and when I RM in computer manager on the disk, everything is greyed out.

@cybernard you can't move a built in raid controller. I converted to dynamic disk and merged two partitions(happened automatically when I extended one to regain some empty space). Now I have to just combine multiple disks into one... which I'm looking for right now.

comment Multijunctions Windows
I can't use raid. I don't like it. Move to a different comp with different @cybernard controller and your screwed(unless it's changed). Dynamic disks do seem like it will solve the problem(I'll just make a multi-physical disk dynamic disk). Are there any downsides that I need to know about before doing it? Can I simply convert? I don't have the room to move stuff around so I can free up a disk. I'm not worried to much about slight corrupt, obviously I don't want it but the data is not critical unless I lose it all.

comment Browse and use archive like any regular folder
Archiving files allows you to reduce the file system complexity which can help with many things in the OS. If you have 10M files and have to do a check disk you'll spend days scanning the system.... even if those files are not used much. If you can consolidate them then they are seen as just one file by chkdsk. Similarly if you are searching files. I deal with pro audio and many libraries have tons of small files(older libraries may have 10k files of around 1k each for synth presets). Each small file takes up a min of the cluster size. I've seen 10gb expand to 40gb because of this.

comment Always maximize almost maximized window utility
The problem is, that the window looks maximized. It's not a matter of how to maximize it BUT to realize that it isn't maximized. Obviously I could just click on the maximize button if I new it wasn't maximized. I need some utility that hooks into the app when creating it's window and can do the "almost maximized" check.

comment Replace scattered files from archive
The problem is not "mirroring" the data structure or updating only existing files. It is dealing with the "from" directory as being flat. All the programs I to do this sort of thing compare the files based on their full paths. In this case I want to compare only there filenames(and not paths). C:\root dir(to)\somepath\filea should be treated as the same as D:\root dir(from)\filea. I'll just write a batch file to do it. Shouldn't be that difficult.

comment Chrome multiple tabs per page
This is the closest one that does what I want. It would be nice to easily be able to combine, close, or split tabs with just a click or two(e.g., open link in split tab).
