Re: NLS cartrage

Hi all,

All this hoo-ha over a file that takes up kilobytes! Good grief, isn't like too short? Just delete any books. Filedir makes this easy.

It does. And you can't open the folder because you get an access denied message.

If you look at the system volume information properties, it will probably
report zero bytes.

System volume information is used by system restore. You may have to tell
Windows not to monitor that drive to keep that file from being placed on the
drive. If no one tells you how, I can look up information but someone may
tell you.
If you want to find out how much room it is taking up, open the properties
for the drive and compare the amount of free space with the amount of used
space when nothing else is on the drive. System Volume information can't be
looked at for size using drive properties.
It may be, as Richard says, that you are going through work to free up space
that isn't enough to matter.

Hi Howard,
Every drive has system volume information, usually hidden,
for identification by the operating system.
The size of that folder is usually not enough to worry about.
HTH,
Rick

Absolutely correct. I have a half dozen that I purchased from someone
on one of these lists. And windows always leaves the folder I
mentioned. So, I'd like to make a clean cartrage before I stick boox on it.

Hi,
OK, I'm just guessing here. Maybe Pamela is thinking that you want to
format a NLS cartridge owned by the NLS library. And, that should not be
done because it isn't your personal property.
However, blank NLS cartridges are available for legal purchase. And, like
all USB drives, they can become corrupt and need to be formatted.
Cheers,
James B

Well, I guess formatting the cartrage is a quick way to get rid of all
the stuff on it. And there are certain folders that windows won't
delete; "System Volume Information" for example. I don't know what
that's even for anyway. Just something to waste space.

Hi all,
I'm trying to format an NLS cartrage on my Win10 computer. It offers
four different types of format. I'm wondering which one I should choose?
Thanks.
Howard
