Hi all, If you rename your folders and files with names that make sense while you are unzipping them, you're do much better. You don't have to put the zip files anywhere! You just need to write the path and the file name, e.g. c:\books\The_Light_In_The_ForestHere are some file naming conventions. Avoid user spaces. Yes, I *know* that windows accepts spaces, but not all computer OS's do. Use file names that are relitively short, e.g. get rid of all that dross in NLS BARD file names. Just use the title of the book, and put dashes or underscores between words. Do not use apostrophes or commas or any other kind of weirdnesses, e.g. Eddies_Blue_Winged_Dragon. You know what the book title is, eliminate the apostrophe. Finally, when the unarchive tool askes you for a file name, *you* tell it where your books are to go. Don't let Microsoft dictate to you.

Use file names that are relitively short, e.g. get rid of all that dross in NLS BARD file names. Just use the title of the book, and put dashes or underscores between words. Do not use apostrophes or commas or any other kind of weirdnesses, e.g. Eddies_Blue_Winged_Dragon. You know what the book title is, eliminate the apostrophe. After all, shorter file names means less typing if you're searching for a file.

Finally, when the unarchive tool askes you for a file name, *you* tell it where your books are to go. Don't let Microsoft dictate to you.
