comment How to format an external hard drive as UDF on a Mac
-1 because you're claiming it is mainly read only, and you can encounter some errors without backing your statement with references.

comment How to format an external hard drive as UDF on a Mac
Revision 2.60 of UDF wastes space with an additional partition for metadata. This feature is useful to increase performance for DVD/BD media, but it is useless on hard disk and flash as it will reduce write performance. I recommend to use instead revision 2.01.

comment Why does BitLocker need a minimum volume size of 64 MB?
The present of BitLocker is much more unclear. I would recommend to stay on TrueCrypt 7.1a and not upgrade until the situation is really clarified.

comment Using UDF on a USB flash drive
See also the script from Pieter Wuille that automates the UDF creation process and makes a partition table for better compatibility. I posted it as an alternate solution.

Worse: typing "PowerShell" from a "cmd.exe" window that has the right settings does the resizing...

This is probably a permission issue. This question may have useful answers to solve our problem.

comment Powershell font too small on Windows 8.1 - how to adjust?
This works only for the current window. This isn't remembered, and the resizing still occurs, even if I change the "default" settings. Cmd.exe windows are fine.

I suffer from the same issue. The font is sized to bitmap 4x6 despites I set default settings for consoles to Lucida Console 24pt.

comment How to resize a partition in Vista with more choice?
I have the same issue, and defragmenting did not solve anything because the end of the disk has unmoveable blocks. Answer for this case would be welcome.

comment How to center batch files when they open up?
What do you mean by "center batch files"? Do you want the window that execute the batch file to be centered on the screen? Or do you want some content inside the window to be centered?

comment Bat file that copies files from a folder with changing name as YYYYMMDD
You don't need external tools for that task.

comment Run this bat file with admin rights
I don't know much GPO, but I think you are probably doing it the wrong way. The GPO that triggers the install should apply to the machine instead of to a user. Microsoft has other way of deploying software unattended than what you are trying to achieve.

comment How to create Enhanced Metafile (EMF) image file?
EMF is a vector format while IrfanView is bitmap oriented. Is it really the right tool for the task?
