I need to use the wildcards (???--"?" is a single digit wildcard ) in the command such that the above would capture foo_42, foo_01, etc and those would be in various subfolders.

If the linux livecd runs without any issues, it proves your hardware is not at fault.

comment Revision 3 SATA (6Gb/s) capable laptops, do they exist?
Hey, you shouldn't be answering this! Don't you know it was closed because nobody will every be helped by it? Er, that's what the brilliant Superuser moderators think anyway "This question is unlikely to ever help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet" Actually, I'm being sarcastic. I appreciate your answer.

comment What is this strange folder that is always accumulating files?
When I used Process Explorer, I found it wasn't being used anymore. I was able to delete without any problem. The only thing I had done prior that might relate are several reboots and making it "read-only" as Kyle suggested. Thanks for your answer. If it happens again I know where to start.

comment Spilled vinegar on laptop, what to do?
@MaQleod - I did failure analysis and repair at a contract manuf of printed circuit boards for years. Your comment is almost entirely bogus regarding alcohol. We used it all the time in the manual cleaning process. Also, our automated machines used water based solutions for cleaning at various steps in the process (see also smtnet.com/Forums/Index.cfm?CFApp=1&Message_ID=50372 for what some other folks still use). The only thing you got right was to suggest a higher concentration as this will dry faster.

comment Revision 3 SATA (6Gb/s) capable laptops, do they exist?
The problem is that you're not taking into account the difference between the byte and the bit. 3Gb is actually 375MB (note the lowercase b and uppercase B--lowercase is bit, upper is byte), which is right at the threshold.

This looks good, yet it did not find the Snapfish program I'm trying to get rid of.

Your percentages are also wrong. You have confused the GB vs Gbit. Read the first paragraph of the SATA III section here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… "Solid-State Drives have already saturated the SATA 3 Gbit/s limit[...]"

The drive is SATA III not II. Sata II is not 6gb/s. Revision 3 is: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA#Revisions
