The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Is that the future will keep clairvoyants in suspense.
«While I complain of being able to see only a shadow of the past, I may be insensitive to reality as it is now, since I'm not at a stage of development where I'm capable of seeing it. A few hundred years later another traveler despairing as myself, may mourn the disappearance of what I may have seen, but failed to see.» Claude Levi-Strauss (Tristes Tropiques, 1955)</
And if @PIEBALDconsult drops by, just double-click on the desktop and all the icons are hidden. (Double-click again and they re-appear.)
They used to have a "restore" option because Windows 7 would obliterate things once in a while, but on W10 with the latest fences, I don't see that option, so maybe they've figured out how to "fix" W10.
You realise with w10 you're supposed to use uwp-metro with big ass baby blocks
do you know how hard ms worked to give you that?
and then gave it to you for free?
show some appreciation and do what nads want's you to do:
1. just shut up and suck up whatever we give you as-is,
2. why? because after examining all of your data only we know what's best for you
3. and just because.
please avoid the old efficient desktop with icons and such like things they way you like them
the desktop and pretty much all customisation likely to be removed in future updates ... oh wait, you say only in some versions, isn't there supposed to be only one windows 10? good on ya ms, remove the confusion, by replacing it with even less understood product.
Been doing it to me since Vista. I keep mine lined up in columns, LHS of screen, but I have just given up on trying to maintain MY ordering. I don't recall seeing it happen dynamically as you describe; it's mostly after a reboot, sleep/hibernate or screen/monitor reconfiguration.
Software rusts. Simon Stephenson, ca 1994. So does this signature. me, 2012
I was assisting a colleague while she was on a conference call and remote with a client troubleshooting a problem with a .csv file. I recommended to open the file with Notepad and look for an empty row which shows as just a bunch of commas. When she finds the offensive line, she brings it to the client's attention so that they may be able to correct the problem themselves in the future and says 'you will need to remove the line here...comma comma comma comma comma'....[fill in the blank]
I couldn't resist! All parties attending got a good chuckle!
He also released "Do you really want to hurt me?" to which my answer was always "Yes. Yes, I do. You made us suffer 'Karma Chameleon' so I want to tie you to the railway tracks, and beat you with a big stick until the train comes".
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

1) yes, but dang if I can remember it off the top of my head. I used it to recover a hard drive that had been badly mauled. Got back 95% of the files. I'll see if I can find the name. Depending on the type of drive failure, it might help.
Ha! Found it. I used R-Studio Data Recovery.
2) Cloud - well, if it's a big drive, then cloud can get pricey. If you only have some files than MS one drive and other options are useful. The useful thing about the cloud is that the data is elsewhere - so you are sort of disaster proof.
For me? I normally backup to an external drive and take it to my safety deposit box.

If your backup drive contains the only copy of a given set of files, you don't have a backup at all.
I buy my drives in sets of 3: The live instance my systems access all the time, an offline backup that gets updated regularly, and an off-site backup that gets replaced with the other drive once a month or so.
Depending on the application, the live instance drive may be mirrored through RAID, but that's keeping in mind that this is for redundancy - it's not a backup.
As for recovery software: Some people swear by GRC's Spin-Rite. Others are skeptical, but essentially this is their only for-sale product, and they've been living off of it for over 20 years, so if it was total snake oil, I have to believe someone would've called them out on it by now.
