comment Batch or PowerShell to mount drives on a FQDN
You're allowing SMB in from the internet?! That's brave.

That file is probably the MFT or a system file.

comment How can I see the hidden data of a bootable CD/DVD media?
If you want to extract it, you'll need the user data for the entire track. I'm not sure what you're expecting to find once you do though -- you're getting into a mixture of both Linux and El Torito voodoo at this point and everything is going to be Windows-hostile. What are you hoping to accomplish?

comment Windows 7 says a 8.6 GB file won't fit in 14.7 GB space?
@us2012: That's a fair sight better than previous versions of Windows which would return a far more cryptic "access denied" generic error message.

comment Size of the compressed image file deteriorates with usage
+1 - Dedragging and compacting should help immensely. There may be OS specific actions that can be taken too, like mounting most partitions read only for *nix systems.

comment Even after reinstalling windows, why does explorer.exe like to hang?
IME, when a clean install of Windows without 3rd party software is hanging or crashing, the problem is bad hardware more often than not. Most of the remaining cases are bad drivers.

A program can install fonts to the system during its installation though, and OpenOffice/LibreOffice may do so.

comment How can I enable onboard graphics AND dedicated card simultaneously?
@ClayNichols: It's going to depend on how they're connected to the chipset. In many systems, 2 PCIe x16 slots run in 8x+8x mode when both slots are occupied and both slots share lanes, so if the onboard GPU is also sharing those lanes, then my answer still stands.

comment Mass Checksumming tool for Windows?
@therobyouknow: Yes, you can do that. I've done it as a fast way of finding different files on systems where running Beyond Compare on both datasets at once was difficult or impossible. It's much easier to FTP/copy/email a small txt file around to check against.
