comment How to create a vcf file from xls file containing mobile contacts
Have you tried uploading them into the contacts of Gmail and then exporting them to VCF? Or, if you have Outlook installed, have you tried importing them into there and then exporting them to VCF?

comment Problems moving AppData to free up space on a drive
Personally I'd use something like WinDirStat, look for much bigger folders sitting within your Program Files folder and then move them across to your HDD with a symlink back to the original location. Trying to move App Data just makes me feel nervous.

comment How do I change Firefox to highlight “save as” or “open with” by default on the download dialog?
Good point. The way the question was phrased meant I (possibly incorrectly) inferred that they had control. A greasemonkey script could change the code to do this, but it would only work if the file type could be inferred by the target URL - which isn't always the case.

comment How to treat a new SSD--optimizations and longevity
Given that you can write 10GB daily for 10 years before a SSD will fail, the only reason to disable indexing is if you like waiting for longer whilst searching through your files.

comment How to treat a new SSD--optimizations and longevity
For the same reasons as you mentioned, I see no reason to disable Windows Search or Hibernation either. If they really did cause problems, Microsoft would automatically disable them for the SSD (just like they do with scheduled defragmentation)

comment Networking with a SSD and it's benefits?
@Arjan: My slow network problem could be caused by the reasonably old PowerLine adapater since it has a theoretical limit of 100 Mb/s (or 12MB/s).

comment Do you need to specify ISOs as being bootable?
+1 for the link to Rufus, looks like it'll save a lot of time as I no longer have to faff around with diskpart when putting a Windows ISO onto a USB stick.
