comment MS Word changing my fonts when pressing enter or commas
What happens if you select the transformed paragraph & press control-spacebar? Have you tried using Word's "reveal formatting" option?

comment Memory speed discrepancy between spec, BIOS and diagnostics
Reply from component chip manufacturer - those are 1600MHz Chips. Reply from Kingston - " We do use chips from different manufactures. Our memory modules are then tested for different speeds and we test a fast range of systems to recommend compatible memory modules." Bottom line: looks like 1600MHz chips overclocked to work at 1866MHz. Still waiting for definitive answer from Dell.

comment SUBST referring path without drive letter
@Adeem - OK - let's see if I understand correctly: you want to give a virtual drive letter to a path on your computer and you don't want the "ordinary" path to be visible on the computer - correct? Do you require the regular drive letter to be "invisible" or to be completely inaccessible? In other words, is it sufficient that the drive not be visible (e.g., when looking at "My Computer" it doesn't appear)? If so, the simple solution is to use SUBST as you describe ("SUBST T: D:\test") and then run a tool like the one I mention to Hide "D:". (I'll update my answer to remove the network stuff.)

comment Move data with compression
If you know the nature of the data you can guesstimate the compression. As others have noted, some data won't compress at all (e.g., jpg, mp3, etc.) since it's already compressed while other data (e.g., text files) can compress up to 90% (or more). For a perfect prediction, it is true - you (or rather some program) must process all the data. What is your goal? To figure out how big a spare disk you must buy to save your data during formatting? I have a better suggestion: buy another 2TB drive and let it be your backup drive moving forward, too (not just while you format your drive).

comment SUBST referring path without drive letter
@LPChip - that's a rather remarkable assumption on your part about my understanding and the OP's question. I did ask him for some clarifications, which we are still awaiting. As for your apparent downvote on my answer - do you think the information about drive hiding was similarly flawed? In any case, until the OP clarifies what his question is - it seems premature to downvote any answer. Let's exercise some patience. If my answer is wrong, I will gladly update it accordingly.

comment Move data with compression
How much data is on the disk you want to format? How much data are you trying to save? How big is the "spare" disk that you have where you want to store the data while formatting?
