Also, you only specify that you hare files in X:\folder1\folder2. Are there any deeper sub-directories? Are there any other subfolders or files in X:\folder1 that you do or don't want acted upon?

What version of Windows is this for? Probably doable in batch, but maybe easier in PowerShell if 7+. Also, it seems like you're thinking about this all backwards. You should make the XML_Backup folders and then make the file-specific folders as sub-directories of that, and then move the files.

comment Is there a downside to configuring a modem to use a dynamic IP when it has a static IP from the ISP?
@sam Generally DHCP leases expire much sooner than that, but they can be very long. Are you subscribed to a business-class service? Typically, consumer-grade internet connections don't get a dedicated static IP.

You've tagged this VBScript - does it have to be in VBScript, or will batch/PowerShell do? What version of Windows?

How are 1 & 2 different? Looks like only 1-4 filled in on both.

comment Memory not compatible with motherboard?
Are you putting the same sticks in roughly the same slots every time? (e.g.: Sticks 1-4 always going in slots 1-4.) Try only running with two sticks, in the first two slots, at a time. If those work fine for a day, swap in two different ones. Keep going until you hit a BSOD. Then, take out one stick and set it aside. Replace that stick with one that tested good earlier. If you hit a BSOD, you know which one's your problem. If you don't hit a BSOD, swap the other stick back in and see what happens.

Note: Not sure if the OP has this, but my systems also aren't connecting to the Windows Store. All other Internet services seem to be fine.

comment Check for Windows Update on Windows 10 (technical preview)
Having the same problem on some Surface 3s today (Win 8 Pro) too. Some are fresh out of the box. Some have gone through OS reloads for good measure to troubleshoot. Problem exists on multiple devices, using different networks. Tried Windows Update troubleshooter & Internet Connection troubleshooter. No dice.

@user1501700 Sorry. I was writing that post off the top of my head from my phone. I forgot an underscore, and after some further testing it seems even that's not quite enough. Give me a minute to work out the proper syntax.

@elderelder I'd hardly call it a "Hack" in PowerShell. I'm pretty sure it's a standard property of file objects that support it.

comment How did the Marriott block wifi hotspots?
It's really too broad of a question to be good for anywhere in StackExchange. Layer 1 jamming would be the most effective, but would mean that other hotspots sharing the channel your APs use would have to be left alone and you'd still have considerable cross-channel interference from the jammers. Spoofing deauth packets would let you target same-channel hotpots without significantly impacting your own, but I'm not sure how it would keep users from being able to see their own hotspots - certainly, they might not be able to join them but they should still be able to see them.
