Customizing Copy/Paste in Same Folder
A new and improved feature of Windows 7 is that when files are copied and pasted into the same folder, the copy file name is the name of the original with "- Copy" which makes it difficult to select just originals or copies.

For example: original file named "Contract-102.docx" copy is named "Contract-102 - Copy.docx

In Windows XP the word "Copy" was at the beginning of the file name. How do I get this rule changed to the Windows XP format?

Copy and paste a file
When you copy and paste a file , you're making a duplicate of the original file that you can then modify independently of the original file. If you copy and paste a file to a different location on your computer, it's a good idea to give it a different name so that you'll remember which file is new and which file is the original.

0x800705ad Insufficient Quota to complete the requested service
I have a W7 laptop. I often store a file(s) in a directory, then copy and paste them to a shared folder on my Desktop XP machine.

All of a sudden, one of these files keeps coming up with the error listed above in the subject title.
It also wipes out the file on my XP machine.

Specifically, let's call the file blah.wks. I update the file every day and save the revised version on my laptop and then copy/paste it to the XP machine. Now I do this with a few datafiles but the error seems to only occur with the one file.

So, Is the problem on my W7 machine or XP machine? I googled it and one article (Wikipedia) said to do a System Restore or d/l some program that fixes the error. I'm not sure I want to do the latter.

I could do the former, but to which machine? I would also hope there would be an easier fix.

Folder Refresh Problems
I’m having an issue where I’m having to manually refresh (F5) all my folders and HDDs when I copy/paste/cut/ and delete files. I’ve tried resetting the folder settings to default but no job.
I have one of my HDDs networked but it’s doing it on all the other drives, which aren’t.
If I drag and drop one file, you can’t see it before you manually refresh it in the new location, however if you try and drag and drop it again you get the replace or don’t copy option, without actually seeing the new file etc.
I noticed this when I would save a file with firefox and the browser would temporarily freeze for a few seconds, then start downloading.

Include folders in a library
A library gathers content from various folders. You can include folders from different locations in the same library, and then view and arrange the files in those folders as one collection. For example, if you keep some of your pictures on an external hard drive, you can include a folder from that hard drive in your Pictures library, and then access that folder's files in your Pictures library whenever the hard drive is connected to your computer.

Lock Icon Nikon d-90
When I copy pictures off my camera (nikon d-90) using the supplied software, my transfered pictures have a lock icon on them in the lower left of the thumbnail.

All of the thumbnails have a placeholder image!
I'm trying to figure out how to make thumbnails work in Windows 7.

The help panel says:

1. Click to open the Pictures library.

2. In the left pane, click the folder that contains the pictures you want to view.

3. click the arrow next to the Views button, and then move the slider to change the size of the thumbnails.

All of that works, except that every thumbnail is a picture of a seascape with a row of hills and a sky full of wispy white clouds.

Windows 7 does this for all of my image files, which are PNGs in a directory that is not in the Pictures library. Likewise for the samples files that Microsoft put in the Pictures library.

What must I do to make the thumbnails display something useful?

Recovering lost photos overwritten
I cut and pasted photos from my Nikon camera to a picture folder using windows exporer. These are named in numerical sequence. (DSC_121, etc.) The next day I cut and pasted a new batch of photos to this folder and for some reason, the camera numbered these pictures with some of the same numbers, so that my original DSC_121 file was overwritten by a new DSC_121 file. I therefore lost a group of pictures. I did not get a screen asking for permission to overwrite. Is there anything I can do to recover the lost photos? I run Windows 7.
