comment Hard disk failure. Can I recover my “move”d folders?
@Doug When you move files onto another disk, data loss is always a risk. That's why I copy, confirm the copy, and then delete, instead of moving.

comment Why is my C:\ a shared folder?
Whoever has permission to modify the share settings would have sufficient rights to the partitions on the machine.

comment Why is my C:\ a shared folder?
@AndrewJBrehm, I don't understand why the root drives would have to be shared by default in order to use/add them later. Why not have the share editor allow you to specify a plain Windows path on your local computer (or the one you're connecting to remotely)?

comment Why is my C:\ a shared folder?
Wait, so if Microsoft simply produced a command line share-editing tool, this wouldn't be a problem? I don't have any lemons for sale, would you to try our hammers for $4.99 a piece?

comment Finder.app preview pane and QuickLook stretch some of my photos
I downloaded a bunch of random images from Flickr and some forums. I'd rather not try to recursively go through my hard drive to fix the metadata. It would be better if QL/Finder just handled this like every other image program.

comment Finder.app preview pane and QuickLook stretch some of my photos
Aye. And it's only QL/Finder that does this. So how can I get them to ignore that metadata?

comment Error when launching PackageMaker (Xcode 4): “PackageMaker cannot be opened…”
No, I first encountered this error after upgrading to Xcode 4. My Xcode version? Xcode 4, dunno the subversion right now as I'm booted into Windows. Permissions could be the issue, dunno.
