Volume shadow copy -- OK to disable?

I was doing a defrag and it kept stopping because of a conflict with
the Volume Shadow Copy service. A quick Internet search turned up a
site that recommended disabling the Volume Shadow Copy while defrag is


I did and that fixed the problem.

The site said to leave it disabled if I don't need it. It didn't say
how I could tell if I need it.

I left it disabled and everything seems to be working OK.

How can I tell if I can leave it disabled or if I need to reenable it?

I already did that, you little twit. I didn't understand all of the
implications, so I was asking if anyone with more knowledge could
offer an opinion. Instead, I get you, who obviously knows nothing and
has nothing useful to contribute. So fuck off.

Copy a currency value from one control to another
I have a text box (called ExtendedCost), that has a sum statement in it. I want to copy the value on the exit control event to another text box control (called WithdrawlAmount) on the same form and write the value into WithdrawlAmount box on the Enter Event for the control box, so people don't have to input the same number into the control box. Is there an easy way to do this? If it's the same calculated value, just use the same expression. Generally, don't store calculated values. Just perform the calculation as needed.

OK to retain a printer DC?
I've been programming since the days when Device Contexts were a scarce commodity, and you always had to delete them when you'd finished using them, and I still do that. But for reasons that I won't go into, my application needs a printer DC every time I paint. Usually that is not a problem, but one user has recently complained that when he uses a given printer, the application becomes sluggish - it seems that for some reason, getting a CD for his printer is really slow. So, I am now thinking about creating a printer DC at startup and re-using it every time I paint. My...

Formula copying from one workbook to another...
Hello Excel community friends. Here's my problem: I trying to copy a formula from a worksheet in one workbook to a worksheet (of the same name and same cell location) in another workbook. Say the formula from workbook1/worksheet1 is =sum(1+1) and the name of workbook1 is "Me" and the name of the worksheet1 is "Sheet1" and located in cell A1. Of course, when you copy the formula from "Me" to another workbook (named, say, "You") and to the same location (A1) and on the same named worksheet, "Sheet1", the preface of the formula is s...

Copying records from one (sub)form to another subform using Append
I have a mainform with products (and thier details) from a products table and a subform showing ingredients (from an ingredients table). I wish to select existing ingredient records from one subform and copy them to so that they appear as ingredients in a new Mainform.

Any guidance on doing this would be great (not too experienced in this area). Many Thanks On Tue, 9 Feb 2010...

Multiple Copies of Messages!
In just the last week or so, my Outlook (2002, running in WinXP Pro) has started (1) sending as many as 6 copies to the recipients of some of my emails, and (2) sometimes putting 3-4 copies of incoming messages into my Inbox. It's starting to drive me crazy, and is a cause of constant apologies to friends, clients, etc. Not good. Any ideas anyone? I, too, noticed several copies of sent messages in my Outlook 2002 Sent Items folder dating back a couple of months. I didn't receive any comments from receipents, so I don't know that they received duplicates. It hasn't ...

How do I find a copy of Publisher 2002?
Hi, I am looking to order a new copy of Publisher 2002. I have a new project that my client wants to do on Publisher. I have not yet upgraded to XP and am still on Windows 98, so Publisher 2003 won't work on my (yes I know) outdated computer. How can I find a new copy of Publisher 2002 which will work on 98?

Autofill Is Copying Instead
Using Excel 2000 on networked Windows 2000 OS, problem is with a shared workbook that several people use. I have a series of consecutive numbers in a column, and when I selected the last two and pulled down the handle as I always do to autofill the next several rows, Excel copied the number from the top selected cell instead. I have never had a problem before. I DID recently change the column's format from number to text, because they are check numbers and no calculations are done on them, and we sometimes use alpha characters when we don't know the check number at the tim...

From sheet 2 onwards the sheet has year to date being current weeks figures + previous year to date.

Bug: (MFC 7.1) Paste into CRichEditView copied from other RichEdit control
Recently, I was helping someone figure out a problem in an MFC application recently upgraded to VC 7.1 (MFC 7.1) from VC 6.0 (MFC 6.0). While running on Windows XP, if you copied text from another CRichEditCtrl, CRichEditView, or another application using RichEdit like WordPad or Word, pasting what you've copied into a CRichEditView would paste nothing. When googling to try to find clues, most of the time there was either no response to the question, or the work around was to change the "copy" end that you controlled, and only put CF_TEXT on the clipboard. However, it ...

Copying range format and formulae without data
I want to set up a macro that copies a range to a new range, copying formulae and cell formats, but ignoring raw data existing in the range copied from. In other words I'm expanding a blank copy for a new period. One way would be to name a blank copy in a range elsewhere and copy it in at the cursor, but for various reasons I'd prefer not to do it that way this time. I have made a 2 stage copy procedure, using the "Paste Special" Alt ESF and Alt EST routines, but this process also copies raw data, presumably seeing the data as a label, even although I have formatted the...

Why Does My Form Copy Values From My Lookup Box To The Other Recor
Hi - I am using Access 2003, and am not very familiar with Access or its terminology. I am not at all familiar with VB. I created a form from a query, and everything is generally working fine. One of the fields on the form is based on a lookup table for location. I have assigned a default value of 1 (which translates to NOT CHOSEN), and that's how everything shows up when I go into the form. I assigned the default both in the originating table and in the box on the form itself. However, when I change the first record to a different value (say, 2 which translates to QUEE...
