Create a folder with a bunch of files in it. (a disposable folder that doesnt contain anything special obviously)

Copy the folder to another partition, keeping the same name.

Then move the original folder to the same partition the copy is in.

Vista will ask u if u want to copy/replace/rename - select replace and tick the box for "do it for all.."

When Vista finishes, the folder u tried to move will still be there, but empty.

(I move an arse-load of files on a regular basis and this is a constant I can duplicate on all Vista builds)

What you told me to do just gave me 2 folders with the same thing in it........When you drag and drop like that all it is doing is copying and pasting. Thats why it keeps the same stuff.

This sounds like a turn in the right direction.

XP was a very good OS whereas Vista was very bad this is why a lot of people think bad of Windows.

I use Linux and Windows but from my experience a lited version of XP is quicker than Linux (gets ready to get flamed).

Also Windows has more viruses written for it as it is the worlds most popular OS. But to tell you the truth, I haven't seen a Virus in years and everyone knows I don't use anti-virus or a firewall.

So overall I am looking forward to Windows 7 as long as it is quicker than that bloated waste of money Vista. I have yet to get my head round how many people on here who are educated in computers moved to Vista... it has yet to be proved worth while. Check out DX10 for example.. what a load of rubbish I have yet to see an impressive FULL DX10 game. Crysis can be tweaked Stalker Clear Sky once again can be tweaked.

DX10 was the biggest marketing ploy I have seen in years.

As long as Windows 7 can be the next XP then I am very happy.

*Gets hacking and virus sending tools at the ready for Tox*

I too was sceptical of Vista - I tried the 64 bit version (32 bit just wasnt worth it) and its really grown on me. I've even bought my own OEM copy. As for Windows 7 i just hope they offer "upgrade" options to upgrade my license to Windows 7. Also modular sounds the sex.

Vista x64 looks nicer than xp, better driver support (XP x64 shouldnt even be considered an OS the support is that bad) plus XP would have received the same treatment while 2000 was the primary OS. Perhaps Windows 7 will be an exception considering its just Vista - on steroids

What sort of Linux distro were you using if I may ask?

Couldn't agree more.

I'm one of the many people using Dx9 on Dx10 hardware and have no intention of switching anytime soon.

eh ? How can u have 2 folders ?!!? lol

1. Create a folder on partition A. Put a bunch of miscellaenous files in it.

2. COPY the folder to partition B. (so u have a copy of the folder on each partition)

3. MOVE the original folder from A to B (move meaning it`ll not be on partition A anymore).

4. Vista will ask u for copy/replace requirements. Tell it to replace.

The folder on partition A will still be there but empty.

To MOVE, u hold ur right mouse button on the thing u want to move and drag it to the destination. When u release it`ll ask if u want to Copy, Move, Shortcut, Canel.

If this were the reverse, u`d be complaining I couldn`t follow instructions

Have had a few mainly running a stripped down Ubuntu but have played with Red Hat and BackTrack.

All are much slower than a highly tuned Windows Server/XP 64bit.
