comment Restore hard disk signature
Take the four bytes (pairs of hexadecimal digits) found at offset 0x38 in the registry binary data, as described in that article, and reverse the order of the bytes (i.e. last byte first, etc). Use the resulting string of 8 hexadecimal digits as the disk signature you restore using DISKPART at the command prompt.

comment Importing Bookmarks from a Text File (to any browser/website)
Using the existing Titles of webpages may not be a very good choice as the bookmark names, as they are frequently ridiculously long, and amount to advertising blurbs.

So how could CHKDSK even run if there was no identifiable file system on the disk?

comment CHKDSK: What option DOES NOT delete files and turn them into .chk files?
This answer makes no sense. File data that has lost its associated metadata simply does not exist as a file. They are simply random data sectors, indistinguishable from any other random sectors on the disk. There is no such thing as correcting directory/file structure only, without affecting the "data" files. Directories are files also.

Well of course the BOM is gone, but the file is no longer encoded in UTF-8, either!

comment How to know the IP address of a website
Also note that a website can have more than one IP address: yet another reason to regard "the IP address of a website" as a meaningless phrase.

comment Windows 8.1 permanently at 100% memory usage
Large computer screen images, when shrunk to fit in a Superuser post, become completely illegible and useless. FYI.

comment Persistently naming an unformatted partition
Your application has no way to identify or mark its data areas other than the device name its given? Sounds primitive!

comment How can I control disk numbering (enumeration) in Windows 7 Disk Management?
The Windows enumeration order has never been claimed to be constant, with either SATA or IDE disks, nor is such required by any hardware standard, as far as I can tell. Software that relies for its correct operation on a stable disk enumeration order is bugged.
