    Do that method with lots of files. Its amazing how many people /businesses have LANs, yet never use them. Business are the worst, people email some documents to one another instead of simply transferring or copy paste over the LAN.

    Had one always emailed, changed one simple step and made things a LOT better and faster -- That's a different subject /story

    I asked just to see if the transfer method made a difference - whether it raised the message or not. In my case it was all on the same physical hardware, just from the VM to the "real" OS.

    Bit of a interesting read -- Many wondered why the build number for rs4 has gone backwards from 17000 to 16350 The reasoning goes all the way back to Windows NT 3.51. oops

    Interesting yes, but part of me is saying, who actually cares?(although I expressed it a bit more forcefully to myself.)

    That is interesting, who would imagine a legacy issue going that far back!

    That doesn't surprise me at all. I was doing some Y2K work for Air NZ back in 1998/9 and was looking at some documentation for the main CARINA booking system which originally came from the Brits. In it I found some pages with the old BOAC logo on it which must have dated from the 1960s. In that same period I also found some old code with my name on it which must have dated from the late '70s.

    One other thing some have mentioned, it appears they have put back the option for windows to format a new install in the ReFS Format. NTFS cant handle the current demands.

    You can format another drive in the format from Windows 10 now, But not the actual OS drive. Might have a play with it and see what's what.

    Bit of info on it. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-u...efs-windows-10

    Another interesting article. It appears to me that ReFS + storage spaces is effectively the same storage technique used in the original Windows Home Server - would that be right?

    Are you referring to the Drive extender WHS uses ?

    https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/3645...rive-extender/

    As far as I know its still NTFS. I know there was stink kicked up when in later editions of WHS they dropped the idea. It makes adding new drives a piece of cake.

    Never really done much with Storage Spaces, except have a play.

    OK. It certainly has the same effect - you can add or delete physical disks and the system handles all the storage reallocation automagically. I still use the original WHS and it works like a charm. It is probably totally insecure these days, but so far I've never had a problem. It automatically does backups from the network PCs and - just works. I never went to version 2 just because they removed that facility.
