I remember some time ago discussing a bug in Windows which prevents free space from being allocated, but I don't recall the specifics at the moment.  I will research a bit and get back to you if I find anything useful.

So, the real subject is Windirstat.

 

I have downloaded the little monster, about 450 kb.

 

I have done all the obvious thing to clear up  space on my  little s s d drive. As I said earlyir, the big items on this drive are win 7, office2013, a couple o c r programs and a few utilities like adobe p d f, revo, 7-zip,  etc..

I have done all the obviouse including  disk cleanup, emptied temp, recycle, and download folders.

 

So what will dindirstat show me?

Hi,
Just wanted to say hello, and that I'm here. I'm happy to answer anything note taker related, though, my interests go beyond note takers. But, only note takers are the things that I have access to.
Oh, most of you will know me, already. I always join the drama on lists, if I can.

Although I should have clarified that this is sometimes a problem with the file system so you might want to check the disk for errors under it's properties on the "Tools" tab.

Hi,
HMM. I still prefer mailman lists, to find out the membership.
So for example:
example-request@...
You would put your membership password, something like: who example. The list will return all the members, and their email to you, assuming, the admins didn't block it. I wish this list had such an option, though, I don't think it has.
If anyone's interested, groups.io has a feedback group kind of thing. To join, email: beta+subscribe@groups.io
I did point out a few errors, Mark helped me before.
Hope this helps someone.
LOL, the best thing I pointed out was unsubcribe, instead of unsubscribe, when you left a list. Its fixed now, but it was amusing.

Hello. My name is Beth. I live in Denver, Colorado. I have been an avid tech geek for as long as I can remember. Anyone remember Windows 95? When that thing came out, my dad bought the family our first computer, but JAWS was not so advanced. Laptops were bulky, and remember when the first one was invented? I cannot remember when the first laptop was invented, I think I was born at that time. But I do remember seeing in a blurb online that it had a tape deck, a floppy disc drive, a printer of all things. Imagine carrying that big old clunker around. lol But my tech geek history goes back, about to 95 for Windows and then some. But my real exposure to computers began with Apple and Echo. Remember?
Does anyone remember also some of the games from back then? Space invaders? Oh God, I can barely remember anything else.
Also, I had a whole history with JAWS and work related computing written in my blog. The URL of that blog is in the signature at the bottom. Also, all contacts are at the bottom. So yall are welcome to contact me with any questions.
My current tech consists of the Asus laptop I"m renting, Comcast accessible TV box, which has made me break the bank. Ugh. And I also use a BrailleNote when it is not flat. Ugh. I may have to wait a month to get that fixed unless I can pay with a Visa gift card. Also, I have a $209 cable/internet/phone bill. But Comcast can't get a triple promo going, so yeah I'm stuck paying big bucks for the stuff that people think is a luxury. Well, if yo looked at my building, you would be using tech to secure the door, so I have to in turn secure my apartment. What we do is you walk in the outer door, type in a code given to you by the resident and then the resident picks up his/her phone and then hits 9 and boom, you're in.
That's all the tech I use. I also have an Android phone, which qualifies as high tech as well.
Anyway, before I write the Great American Novel, I will close with a thank you Carlos for inviting me to this group. Yall can contact me on or off the group. Thanks.

Forget Windows 95. I go all the way back to the days of COBOL and IBM mainframes. I used to be a COBOL programmer back in the old days when load modules were stored on punch cards. As a teenager, I remember being dazzled at the IBM pavillion at the 1964 New York World's Fair by demonstrations of the company's brand new System 360 mainframe, which along with its successor, the System 370, would go on to dominate the business computer market for many years. My very first job in the early 1970's involved programming "mini" computers made by the giant Dutch conglomerate, Philips Electronics, which was more well-known for its Norelco electric shavers. This so-called "mini" computer was the size of an upright piano and had a whopping storage capacity of 4K. An optional harddrive was available with a capacity of 32K. It was the size of a small refridgerator and broke down frequently, keeping the company's repair technicians constantly on call to appease irate customers. By the mid-1970's,Philips and its ilk had dropped out of the computer business and left it to the likes of IBMHoneywell, Burroughs and Sperry Univac. We sure have come a long way in 40 years.

My daughter says, when I tell her, for example, I’m trying to locate my passport, which is the name of my 1tb external hd, she clicks on the mouse and then jaws says this pc, so how can I get to this pc via the keyboard?This pc is in the file explorer which use to show my c drive, dvd drive etc, but it’s not showing any of that.

I always post a question and then right when I send it, I figure out my own problem. However, with it being 4 in the morning now, I have no idea how I got there… I was just tabbing and down arrowing and poof there it was lol.

 

But, I couldn’t figure this out ever since getting windows 10 which is a few weeks now.

So, since my brain isn’t functioning right now, lets just forget this email ever came through…

I have been a fan of computers but I thought Philips was also famous for trying to monopolize what would become the MP3 revolution. For more, read How Music Got Free, a book on music piracy. Different subjects for different threads.

Hello. My name is Beth. I live in Denver, Colorado. I have been an avid tech geek for as long as I can remember. Anyone remember Windows 95? When that thing came out, my dad bought the family our first computer, but JAWS was not so advanced. Laptops were bulky, and remember when the first one was invented? I cannot remember when the first laptop was invented, I think I was born at that time. But I do remember seeing in a blurb online that it had a tape deck, a floppy disc drive, a printer of all things. Imagine carrying that big old clunker around. lol But my tech geek history goes back, about to 95 for Windows and then some. But my real exposure to computers began with Apple and Echo. Remember?
Does anyone remember also some of the games from back then? Space invaders? Oh God, I can barely remember anything else.
Also, I had a whole history with JAWS and work related computing written in my blog. The URL of that blog is in the signature at the bottom. Also, all contacts are at the bottom. So yall are welcome to contact me with any questions.
My current tech consists of the Asus laptop I"m renting, Comcast accessible TV box, which has made me break the bank. Ugh. And I also use a BrailleNote when it is not flat. Ugh. I may have to wait a month to get that fixed unless I can pay with a Visa gift card. Also, I have a $209 cable/internet/phone bill. But Comcast can't get a triple promo going, so yeah I'm stuck paying big bucks for the stuff that people think is a luxury. Well, if yo looked at my building, you would be using tech to secure the door, so I have to in turn secure my apartment. What we do is you walk in the outer door, type in a code given to you by the resident and then the resident picks up his/her phone and then hits 9 and boom, you're in.
That's all the tech I use. I also have an Android phone, which qualifies as high tech as well.
Anyway, before I write the Great American Novel, I will close with a thank you Carlos for inviting me to this group. Yall can contact me on or off the group. Thanks.
Beth

Hey Kim, why not try
going to This PC from the Desktop by hitting Windows plus M.
That usually helps me.
The This PC thingy is also located in the Windows folders, I can't remember I think it's the last folder you have.

I signed up here, because I think carlos is the coolest thing since slice bread.

 

Anyways, apparently, I’m still having trouble accessing my c drive an any other external drives when plugging them into my laptop running windows 10.

My daughter says, when I tell her, for example, I’m trying to locate my passport, which is the name of my 1tb external hd, she clicks on the mouse and then jaws says this pc, so how can I get to this pc via the keyboard?This pc is in the file explorer which use to show my c drive, dvd drive etc, but it’s not showing any of that.

Hi,
oh, charger. I'm on the third one with the apex, and every time it fails, the district literally questions me how come it died, when they just got a new one. Well, if there's something I don't like, is the apex.

Well, the BN charger wire is twisted and broken, and the battery is now
flat and unusable. So yeah. I need another charger. So yeah.

Hi Beth,
Just wondering, what's wrong with your BN?
PS. I started with an mpower running 7.5, I will never forget that thing. After that, I got an apex (which I still have) and I'm now on a braille sense u2. Although, I do want something mainstream. But then again, I don't regret note takers, they are the best thing to carry around in school. And they give full privacy, at all times.

Beth:

I just tried it, navigating to the desktop and I don’t see this pc anywhere. I think I can pin it to the start menu from file explorer?

Also, it takes me to this pc every time my computer launches and I’m stupid and forget its open hahahah and close it then try to get to it again. I posted in another email that I manage to get to it but didn’t remember how as it’s 4 almost five here…
