comment Netgear R7000 new firmware update 1.0.6.28 broke my port forwarding 80 due to ReadyShare, how to fix?
If that's the same thing - it's the only "NetGear R7000" model I've found so far. It's on their site under "Home" products, not under "business" or "Soho". And ReadyShare is described as "SHARE - Store, secure, and share your family’s files" and it's also in the 'home' section - netgear.co.uk/home/discover/apps/readyshare

NetGear appear to class the R7000 as a Home router - netgear.co.uk/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/R7000.aspx

comment How to prove the authenticity of a screenshot?
prove that the picture you took is the picture I received - it won't prove that. It will prove the picture you received was not changed during transport from them to you, and can prove that nobody else sent it as a forged-sender, but it can never prove the picture they sent you is the picture they took - separately from the truth/fake status of the picture they took.

comment Boot a windows 10 installation to a different hardware
This guide says that reinstalling Windows for a different motherboard was an old myth and unnecessary 8 years ago - arstechnica.com/gadgets/2007/09/… . Windows is great with detecting new hardware, you can take a Windows server and virtualize it so every piece of hardware appears different to the OS, and if you can get the boot drive recognised, it will run or you get one or two common errors to google and fix, and then it works. Windows 10 might be worse - but how likely is that?

comment Recover incomplete(?) video files
Retry opening the file in VirtualDub or similar. But if you already have them, it doesn't matter. I have had good luck with VirtualDub reading partial files before, but if you have codecs to read the files normally, and virtualdub is no help, then I don't know what else.

Hmm, how about if you install one of the K-Lite multimedia codec packs? codecguide.com/download_kl.htm then try again?

comment Case sensitive file extensions in Windows and Linux
@DavidPostill It's not a literal quote, it's a paraphrasing because comment space is small. Yes, POSIX subsytem + Windows kernel + NTFS falls under the "Windows" umbrella, but whatever you do, win32 can't handle it. I'm suggesting that "if you exclude all the Windows software you've ever heard of, it can" is answering literally on a technicality and not getting to the spirit of the question (which I read as "Why was the everyday Windows end user experience designed not to be able to do this?").

comment Using ppp0 via VPN for everything but ftp
@andy NB. that it is complicated because "routing" and "FTP" exist at different networking layers ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_model#Description_of_OSI_layers ). Being picky, fukawi2's example does not 'route FTP', it routes 'TCP traffic to server.example.com on TCP port 21, regardless of whether it is FTP or not', and it will ignore FTP traffic to other sites and other ports. Sometimes this doesn't matter, sometimes it does.

comment Case sensitive file extensions in Windows and Linux
"dodge Windows and you can do it" slightly avoids the question "why doesn't Windows do it?". Windows 9x came via DOS and the FAT filesystem which only used uppercase, no matter what you typed ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filename#Letter_case_preservation ). Recent Windows come from NT, and part of NTFS design was to get away from the 8.3 file-name limits in early FAT (says Wikipedia). So why did win32 keep this behaviour by default?. Win 95 Explorer was ported to NT 4: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/… is that why? Backwards compat. with Win16?
