Help with file distribution

Q: Help with file distribution

This is my first post on this site so I hope this is the correct forum for this topic. I'm finally upgrading to a new PC which of course will have Windows 8. I'm coming off of an XP machine and will need to transfer my files and folders. Simple enough, however I've read both here and MS site about the libraries and file system that W8 uses and how they're different than older versions so I'm now a bit confused as to the proper way to distribute my files when I put them on the new machine. For example, in XP I simply had a single folder for each piece of machinery (CNC machine that is) which contained all the documents (.pdf, xls, etc.), pictures, and videos directly pertaining to that individual machine. If I understand the W8 library system correctly, for best results I should now start an individual folder for each machine in each of the Windows libraries. That is, a folder in Documents for machine X, a folder in Pictures for machine X, a folder in Videos for machine X, etc. and then continue the same way for machine Y and so on. Am I correct? I have no problem doing this I'm just looking for best procedures to follow whenever possible and use the OS as designed.
Sorry for the rookie question, but most of my experience using computers, besides the typical "home" use has been with PPCL programming and process control. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Help with file distribution

You can set it up any way you want. There is no requirement to make the changes you mention. If you're comfortable with the structure you have now, stay with it. No need to even use Libraries unless you want to.

My recommendation would be to stay as you are initially, then as you get used to Windows 8, and it will take considerable getting used to, especially coming from XP, start making changes that add to the usability. Just my $.02 worth.

More as an alternative to twiddling my thumbs than anything else, I tried to produce a batch file that would count up the number and size of files in a folder, as well as the number and size of files with each extension. Hence it would say how many word documents I have and how much space they're taking up, etc.

I've managed to get a vaguely working model, but the output formatting is terrible (I just wanted it to say X bytes in Y "Z" Files, none of that ugly dotted variable names) and I have failed to get it to equate .htm and .html, .jpg and .jpeg, etc.

You would be better off using third party software that already does this. Plenty of them out there.
I personally would check the extension of each file using the cmd extensions of a for loop. then do an if statement for each file type you want to keep track of. then use a call statement to branch to a function that adds up the file sizes and number of files.

Can someone tell me of a way a person can distribute a file to other people other than e-mail and are not connected to a network. I appreciate any help.

You could try a free filesharing programme

Or a paid for web hosting service - there's lots out there, some with trial periods

Instant messaging - they allow you to send a file

I need to hand out a file on a USB stick (or burn it onto a CD) but I do not want that file to be copied or distributed/forwarded (e.g. by attaching it to an email).

While I do not expect to find a bulletproof solution I want to make copy/distribution a bit harder (at least for a relatively unskilled PC user) than just leaving the file totally unprotected and in plain sight.

I thought to place my file inside a specifically created (Windows) system special folder "somefolder.{RESERVED-GUID}" then make a link pointing to it (relative path without drive letter to use on the CD/USB stick which might be assigned a different letter) which will keep the file easily viewable but not straightforwardly copyable.

I need some help to create this link, any suggestions?

Alternative approaches to address the same issue are most welcome.

NOTES: Originally the (sensitive) file is a .pdf*** but I made a (launcher) script that checks the existence of another (sort of validation) file in the same dir (only if that validation file is present, then a password prompt pops up to permit the .pdf's file execution). I then converted the (launcher) script to .exe file... Bottom line, the files to hide/protect are the (target) .pdf file and the (hidden and extensionless) validation file

*** I have already added all standard "pseudo-security" restrictions (prevent edit, copy, print etc.) to the .pdf file but I do not intend to rely only on that type of security since it can ... Read more

I am operating with Windows Vista Home Basic and have had trouble updating my files after a clean reinstallation. Finally succeeded through many strategies, but in doing so (a jillion times) eventually noticed that failures occurred whenever the 'System Distribution' file in the windows folder had not been emptied of logs and previous downloads. Not sure what this means. Any ideas? Could there be a problem with hard disk, processor, motherboard, electrical shorts? (Do not have problems downloading to other computers in my home, so my overall connection is good.)

To date I haven't had a problem getting it to find any hardware on laptops nor set-top boxes.

I work at a small private school that occassionally sends school information home to parents. The school has tasked me with researching a way that we, the school, can send emails containing the school information to parents.

Our list of parents who want to receive these emails is about 300 - 350 parent email addresses. Our desire is to develop emails containing important school related info. and email everybody on the list as a BCC. Our desire is to transmit these emails but not allow anybody to "Reply" to the emails.

Does anybody know of an easy way we can email messages in mass?

We are hoping for a simple and economical way to simply send one-way emails to parents.

We do not want to use the current email engine that presently exists within our school system. (The reasons we don't want to use our current email system is a whole other story and is not for this forum.)

I am new to forums and hope I haven't over stated my self. I will appreciate any feedback from anybody.

A:Distribution list

Hi needhelp1950

Your ISP determines how many e-mail addresses you can send at one time. You might try a maximum of 25 addresses to see if that message is allowed through or not.
Otherwise, call your ISP to see what their limitations are.

Copy the e-mail addresses to a spreadsheet and Import them into Outlook.
First, Export your existing Contacts from Outlook as a .csv file to see the template that Outlook uses. Then copy the names into the .csv file and Import it back into Outlook.
Which version of Outlook are you using?

There is a manager in my office that randomly looses his distribution list.

When he sends out an email, through Outlook web, using the distribution list, it disappears and there is no way to get it back. It does not go into the deleted folder or anywhere that I have been able to find. It does not seem to happen when he uses Outlook 2003.

This has happened 5 or 6 times now. As far as I know there are no other applications running at the time he sends out the email.

We are set up on an Exchange server.

Essentially, I have a "book" that I want to sell digital copies of. I do not want people to be able to just copy the file and share it with their friends. I have thought about pdf security (which I hear is a joke) and simple password access, but I realize that people then would simply just post their password and the file itself. No matter what, there is no way to completely secure a file. I know that with proper determination, a "hacker" could bypass the security. I am looking for a solution that will simply deter all but the most determined of thieves. The only thing I can think would be viable, if difficult, is to create a program that can view an online file. the program would require a user account and the user account would be issued registration codes for the books they purchase. This would enable them to only view, not download, the material they have paid for access to. Can anyone else think of a solution? it must follow these guidelines:

-must not download the files (to prevent copies being made)
-must allow only users who have purchased a title to view only the titles they have paid for
-must allow users to have multiple titles to pay for

Essentially, I just want to minimize copying so I can retain sales. what should/could I do to enforce this?

I have an Outlook distribution list problem. This seems to occur in many versions of outlook. I have a distribution list where I am the owner and it is shared across everyone on the team. I update the list periodically as people in the unit leave or are added.

What I've found is that often when people are using the distribution list, it's not the updated version. The people removed are still on it and new people are not being included. Is there some way to advise team members to clear out a cache or somewhere that this is being held onto by their computers so that the newest version of the list can be used?

A:Distribution list - not updating?

Assuming you use the Distribution List from your computer, and send it out to everyone for them to save your list as the New Distribution Group, they may be saving the new DL and not removing the old DL first.
Just a test, if you want to, Create a new DL and add just one person to it. Save it, and send it to yourself. Open your email and drag and drop the DL to your Contacts folder, now if you look in your contacts folder, you will see two identically named DLs.
Perhaps, when you next update the DL, include instructions How To go to Contacts and delete any and all DLs Named "Your DL Name", as step 1 before saving the new one.
If this is the cause, it is Business as Usual. Many Users will do the right thing, and save the new DL correctly, and never mention that they see 3 of the same DL in their contact folder, never knowing they are selecting the old one.

Is there a way to have Outlook-based contact groups that, if one staff member adds/deletes a contact, that it updates for everyone that has access to the contact group?

We are using a 2010 Exchange Server, 2010 Outlook and most of the computers are PC (I am the only one who also uses a Mac).

I'm having trouble finding a solution online -- because "auto updating contact group" generates different answers for me.

I know we have a Global Address List-- and I think that's kind of the way my boss wants it to function -- but instead of it being the global master list, it would be smaller lists that multiple people should have access to. For example, an "All Staff" list, a list of people who attend the weekly administrative meetings" ... "volunteers" ... and we would normally send these lists out to the people who need it. But if it changes, or people are added or whatever, then we have to send it out again, and most people don't understand how to remove the previous one, and then add the new one. We have a lot of non-computer friendly people, and I'm not the greatest myself...

Okay, any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated. Or if you could kindly point me in a better direction than googling "auto updating contact list".

Thank you!


A:Distribution List that updates for all

Welcome to TSG nhcsam. Hope you find answers to your problems and help others when you get the opportunity.

We us FIM (ForeFront Identity Management) This allows admins to assign owners of distrabution groups and security groups. The owners can then add and remove members as they please without requesting the services of an admin. Its been big time saver and freed the admins to do admin work instead of permission.

FIM probably cost money and requires and admin project to implement. There used to be a 'Public Distrabution List' that was stored/associated with an Outlook public folder (Been to long since I wore an Outlook hat). You might ask your IT folks about that or if they can give update permissions to an individual for a distrabution group.

If no cooperation from IT I would have them create a distrabution group and send them the updates each and every time. They can either do the work or find a solution.

Hi folks, I have a few questions about C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution.old. The folder is 456MB.What is this, and can it be deleted? I think it has something to do with Microsoft updates. I should clarify something: I have TWO Software Distribution folders. A few months ago, after the folks at the HiJackThis forum helped me clear up a malware infection, I started having some problems with some Windows functions. A Microsoft techie solved the problem, but in order to do so he had to create two "Software Distribution" folders. He named the one that already existed "Software Distribution.old" (this is the 456 MB folder), and created a new one: "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution".After he created the ".old" folder, the problems I was having cleared up... so his solution seemed to work. So can I now delete the ".old" folder?Thanks a million, D.

A:Software Distribution Folder

Most likely you can delete it without any issues. But I'd recommend moving it to another location for a week or two to see if you need it. Then, if you still don't need it, delete to the Recycle Bin - where it'll remain until it's forced out (thereby providing a measure of extra protection).

The following link reports Emsisoft malware removal statistics by type (2015):

Antivirus, Anti-Malware, Anti-PUP? What is Emsisoft really?

Such data is important when crafting your security config. What it shows is that, at the time the data was collected and reported, the probability of a Trojan, Bot, Backdoor and Rootkit infection is 14 %, an exploit is only 1 % and a virus 0.2 %. On the other hand there is a 79 % chance of encountering a potentially unwanted application\program (PUA\PUP).

What the above statistics do not indicate is what proportion of the PUAs\PUPs are just mere annoyances versus the more sinister ones - those that will attempt to download and install a Trojan, Bot, Backdoor, Rootkit, VIrus, etc.

The incidence of ransomware is not specified, but more recent data suggests approximately 2 %.

It is important to understand the following:

If you do not download and install applications - or - only install applications from trusted publishers from their direct download links, use built-in system\browser protections, use safe computing habits, then the probability that your system will be infected is virtually 0 % !

For a significant portion of adult users, a security soft such as Emsisoft Anti-Malware or Emsisoft Internet Security is sufficient.

Microsoft admitted it had no choice but to suspend its mass distribution via its Windows Update site for XP SP3 and Vista SP1 while it attempts to fix the glitch in its specialist point-of-sale (POS) app – Dynamics RMS – which is used to manage about 38,000 different small to medium-sized retail businesses worldwide.

A:Vista-SP1 distribution Halted

Yep, i've readen it this morning but in the french press it is said that for Vista (SP1) the autoupdate is not suspended on the windows update web site though they suspended automatic updates, on the web site they just warn the RMS users.

I just got hired by a company and it is an accounting firm. They currently do not have any way of pushing updates out to there users. They make instruction for them and tell them were the exe is located. We all know how that works, people don't do the updates and then are behind 5 or 6 versions. They use WSUS for windows update. I am not familiar with any software distribution packages that are out there. Can someone help me out.
