Folder Sizes

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
I was checking the size of 1 of my folders, & I noticed the, size, & size on disk, are 2 different sizes, shown below.
 
My Programs Properties
My Programs
Type: File folder
Location: H:\
Size: 103 GB (111,517,552,631 bytes)
Size on disk: 103 GB (111,564,533,760 bytes)
Contains: 20,964 Files, 2,791 Folders
So out of curiosity, would someone please explain why 2 different sizes are displayed when viewing folder sizes in the properties of the folder / file?  Thanks much.
 
Take care.

This evening, while I was out at a restaurant eating supper, I got a call from Danielle at ScripTalk. She said that the device is on its way to me and should arrive in five to seven days. She said they’d check with me to see how it was doing and would be in contact every six months or so. She said that it is a loaner, so that if for any reason I no longer needed it or something happened to me, it should be returned to them. She wanted to know how I learned about it, and I said from a friend in Texas, and she was very happy to hear that we had discussed it on this list.

Well this video shows how to shrink and create a partition and delete a partition and extend a drive. It has some visual things in it but it is very understandable and think it will be of help for people that want to do this kind of thing! See link below.

I’ve used the ScriptTalk for a number of years, since back when it was a palm sized unit and I really like it.  The VA will label my scrips so that they can be read and one local pharmacy in Madison, WI – Malott’s – does the same but I’ve yet to find a chain that uses the ScriptTalk labels here in Wisconsin.

Hi all,

Bit of an interesting one here:

By now some of you will have heard that Microsoft has leaked what's
being called a golden key relating to its secure boot process. For
those that haven't, essentially, on newer UEFI based computers that
are prebuilt & the Surface RT tablets you're unable to boot anything
that hasn't been signed by Microsoft. On normal laptops & desktops
you're usually able to just turn it off in the UEFI but obviously this
presents accessibility issues for us.

I'm not going to post any links as I'm assuming that this is a bit of
a grey area legally & replies off list about how to do it will
respectfully go unanswered, but suffice to say that after a bit of
Googling I was able to download a script that disabled secure boot for
me on a computer where it was enabled which allowed me to boot a
talking PE disk. The script is kicked off within Windows and the
process is more or less fully accessible.
My understanding is that MS are pushing out updates that try to stop
the tool from working but at the time of writing they appear not to be
overly effective.

Obviously if we look at the bigger picture, in terms of security this
is a *huge* issue. Never the less, for us, it is a small, all be it
unintended win in terms of accessibility.

Have fun,
Ben.


Re: Accessibility implications of the secure boot leak

Also, I believe a PE based on Windows 8 or later can boot with Secure Boot enabled. I have not actually tested this myself, but I have read that it is possible and I vaguely remember at least a couple of users reporting that they managed to do so successfully.

Re: Accessibility implications of the secure boot leak

Hi Iaen,

That is indeed interesting. Thanks for passing it on. My only comments are that I'm not sure I agree the legality is a grey area. A security risk yes, but illegal most likely not. You have the right to disable Secure Boot manually, so disabling it with a script is no different as long as you are only applying it to your own machines. Having said that, Microsoft will almost certainly eventually succeed in making the script ineffective so it probably won't be useful for much longer.

Hi all,

A question was asked on another list regarding possibility of creating desktop shortcuts for universal apps. The answer is a resounding “yes”, as the following article points out:

http://www.groovypost.com/howto/create-desktop-shortcuts-windows-10-universal-apps/

 

Try:

1. Press Windows+R to open Run dialog.

2. Type the following as exactly as shown:

shell:appsfolder

3. Locate the app you'd like to pin to desktop (e.g. Microsoft Edge).

4. Open context menu and select "create shortcut". Answer "yes" when a follow-up dialog asks if you'd like to create a desktop shortcut instead.

5. Go to desktop and locate the shortcut you've just created. The shortcut should be named "AppName - shortcut". Rename the icon label.

Turns out the above steps actually work (I have managed to create a desktop shortcut for Microsoft Edge).

Cheers,

Joseph

I suspect there is a problem with your browser or with the registry.  If you go to the actual page so that it is opened in your browser and use the use current button, it should make that the new home page.  You haven't tried that procedure and if it works, it will solve the situation if not the actual thing that is causing the problem.  If it doesn't, you may have to do more investigation and that may be more trouble than it's worth. 

 

First, if you haven't done so, reboot.  In situations where unexpected behavior occurs, that should be one of the first things to try.  Someone withg more technical knowledge might tell you what to do in the browser to try to correct the problem and what to check in the registry.  Given the increasingly old state of Internet Explorer, this might be just the time to switch to Firefox as the main browser.

I've seen discussions in Microsoft user forums, where resetting the browser caused all favorites to be lost even though this should not be the case.  I would strongly suggest exporting favorites before performing this operation.  I'm not sure what else you may have to reset afterwords.

I suspect there is a problem with your browser or with the registry.  If you go to the actual page so that it is opened in your browser and use the use current button, it should make that the new home page.  You haven't tried that procedure and if it works, it will solve the situation if not the actual thing that is causing the problem.  If it doesn't, you may have to do more investigation and that may be more trouble than it's worth. 
 
First, if you haven't done so, reboot.  In situations where unexpected behavior occurs, that should be one of the first things to try.  Someone withg more technical knowledge might tell you what to do in the browser to try to correct the problem and what to check in the registry.  Given the increasingly old state of Internet Explorer, this might be just the time to switch to Firefox as the main browser.

Newer versions of Internet Explorer have the ability to configure multiple homepages.  By default, only the first configured homepage will be opened.  Use the Up/Down Arrow keys in the homepage edit field and make sure no other homepages are assigned.  If so, delete them before typing in your new homepage.

Hi,

Using windows 7 and internet explorer 11 how do I save a new home page. I have gone into internet options and have written in the new address but it does not save it after hitting apply and ok.

There are I think three buttons and I have tried each one but still cannot save the home page.

So, do you know what I am doing wrong in trying to save a new home page?

Thanks.

Patrick

I'm not sure.  Selecting
"OK"
or
"Apply"
should be sufficient.  If all else fails, you can try resetting IE to it's defaults on the
"Advanced"
tab.
