comment Windows XP consuming drive letters
Thanks, but I'd already tried that one ;-) The drive letters don't appear as \DosDevices\. I also thought it was a problem with the encryption app shutting down, which is why I tried a second encryption app. They both behave the same. That's why I suspect it's an OS issue rather than an application issue. Thanks for the reply, I hadn't seen that particular link before.

comment How to reduce the pain of the command prompt
I'm a huge fan of TCC (have been since it was 4DOS, back around 1989); I much prefer it to PowerShell. And now that TCC/LE is freeware, I can send .BTM scripts complete with a TCC installation :-) Note that PowerCMD and Console are not replacement command processors, but replacement terminals. Personally, I use Console with multiple tabs, each containing a TCC (or Cmd, or Cygwin) session.

comment Missing computer?
Hardware wise, the box was a 1990s-era IBM PS/2. I believe it was a 486 of some sort. It just ran some monthly reports. It was pretty much obsolete; the fact that no one knew where the thing was meant that all business functions had migrated to other boxes over the years. When time came to physically re-org the building, however, finding it became a priority. What's really amazing is that when we found it, there was a DC-6250 tape drive in it, complete with a 15 year old tape. To no one's surprise, the tape was not readable.

comment How to use a 3.5mm headset on a normal phone?
It's not clear from the link, but that's a 2.5mm male to 3.5mm female. I used it to plug male 3.5mm headphones into my Nokia's 2.5mm female jack. It supports stereo, but I don't know if it supports microphone or not, sorry.
