comment Loading speedbar on emacs startup
Thanks lawlist. My question is "How do I enable speedbar buffer BUT in the same emacs windows". when I add (speedbar) to .emacs I get two different windows one for speedbar and another for emacs. Your second response though made things much clearer. Instead of (speedbar), I do (sr-speedbar-open) and that makes the speedbar show in the same window. If you can respond by saying that add (sr-speedbar-open) into the .emacs, then I can accept it as a correct answer. Thanks again for your help

comment how to compare two large folders (>2G, 196,000 files)
Thanks for the prompt and informative answer. I also have more data to copy from another similar drive (which is hopefully working properly). Is there a utility that will calculate checksums over 2G of data and tell me what files (if any) are not properly transferred. This is imp data and I need to make sure that the archiving is not faulty. I have tools like beyond compare but they don't work for (around 1.5G) worth of files. I can split and test but that takes time. This appeared to be a generic problem to me and so was hoping for a popular tool that may do this job without intervention

comment how to make windows xp always arrange folders by date
Thanks. This is great. I wonder why this was not apparent to me. I am still struggling on how to ensure that when I do the file open, the folder is listed with all details. Right now it presents just the file name. When I click on the details, then it shows the list in sorted order. However, I still have to click on details. Inputs appreciated

comment Rename screen session
This is a better answer than the one above because it deals with the general case of multiple sessions
