comment Safely remove files from Windows 7 system folders?
@hazzik: The article says "Second Phase will replace all version of each and every file stored in WinSXS folder and will create hard link to highest version of file in program location or other location." Of course, the article might not be written by author, not sure.

comment Safely remove files from Windows 7 system folders?
@hazziz: per your new comment about winsxslite, you should be aware that the hard linking ( techk2.com/tutorial/… ) described here is what winsxs does already. The idea is to allow windows to swap in older compatible versions of packages so programs will run properly. Your program will remove these old versions and har link them all as the most recent version. This is actually counter tio the intent and design of winsxs functionality AFAIK.

comment Safely remove files from Windows 7 system folders?
Just to point out that the winsx can and will grow, and cannot be relocated, so the "good" news for hazzik is that a 2nd hard drive will not help this problem at all. I personally had a 16GB sxs folder under vista.

comment How can I reliably transfer thousands of files from Windows 7 to OSX Lion
I understand, thanks. Knowing OSX' roots in unix-like OS, I'd expect the ftp server to be built-in and configurable from terminal at the very least. (edit: it is AFAICT reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-20088844-263/… )

if you are putting an ftp server on your OSX machine, you would be copying from OSX to windows. Also, you talk about setting up a share in the context of the OSX user interface.

Your question title says "copy from win to OSX", but the question seems to say the opposite. Am I confused?

comment Graphics Cards DirectX version upgrade?
Note also, that historically games are behind the curve when it comes to DX versions. When a DX version is new (even up to a year after) the majority of software out there will not fully support/implement the new standards. When shopping, this is something to consider, since one often pays a premium for the cards that support the new standard. You should also look at performance of the cards in question, since some DX n cards are going to be crappier than dx n-1 cards

In the past, you could request a free set of OS discs for Dell computer which do not ship with them. I did this for my daughter's laptop once.

comment What is the difference between S-Video, Firewire and USB for cameras?
I case you missed it: S-Video is TV-out and is NOT useful for transferring video directly to a computer; firewire and USB are for transferring files to a computer, and have limited utility (without special TV support) for displaying a video from your camera directly to a TV.

comment Can you reinstall Windows Vista without wiping your machine?
@ramhound: with XP, there are/were several ways to reinstall. I call it "the second 'r' option": where it will reinstall windows in-place and all your stuff just works.

comment Sending an internet radio singal from my hifi to a portable
The problem with these devices is that they work by presenting a file listing (and the infinitec one says it uses the laptop's wireless). The OP wants to share internet radio, which implies an audio source, not a file (if I read it correctly?).
