Xcopy/robocopy most efficient way to trans. files?
The company i work for uses xcopy to copy our server files and folders to a backup folder every night, this process takes anywhere from 45 mins to 1hr 20 mins, other than trying robocopy or xcopy does anyone have a better more efficient ( faster ) idea or way that they do things to copy large tables/files/folders to a backup folder? Please post your ideas or what you do if it is different.

Death match: Windows Vista versus XP
http://www.infoworld.com/article/08/03/17/12TC-vista-versus-xp_1.html?source=NLC-PLATFORMS&cgd=2008-03-19 Interesting article if nothing else... I just bought a new laptop on Sunday and it came with Vista, but I have to say it isn't anything I would pay extra for or upgrade a machine I already have to... If you're a self-proclaimed Vista fan, what are your reasons? Just curious... from both a user point of view and from a person having to support/develop to it....

Windows 2000 Professional
Here's a problem that popped up - I try to boot into my computer running Windows 2000 Professional, and the system gets to the Windows 2000 logo screen then automatically goes into a reboot, and the cycle repeats itself. An error message pops up but only for a split second so I cannot read it. I have not installed anything onto the computer in over two months. It's set up as NTFS, only one partition, and it's a Compaq 7000 Series., , Two question:, , 1. What the heck is wrong (sorry, had to ask)?, 2. Is there a way to freeze the error screen as it pops up so I can read it?, , Thanks in advance for any help., , Chris

Windows ME and GeForce 2 MX 200 Graphics Card
I was wondering if anyone has encountered problems while installing a GeForce 2 MX 200 Graphics Card while running the Windows ME Operating System., , When I install the card and start up windows, it won't automatically detect the new card. Also when I try to install it manually it still won't find it., , Anyone have any ideas., , P.S. The card is AGP and my old one is PCI (3D Blaster Savage 4). I have made sure AGP is enabled in BIOS and have tried the AGP at different speeds.

If we keep a database on our network system (small company - 4 computers) how could we get creative and allow a client to visit the database and have access to this database at their convenience? Any suggestions?
