    Move program files between SSD and HDD?

    I saw this article from GHacks, but wondered if there were more programs or methods out there? Also, if I have programs installed on my HDD and then move them to the SSD and use the 'file link' method...will it still be as fast as if the files were originally installed on the SSD?

    Need advice on an upgrade...

    Just saw the XFX Radeon 6870 for $150. How does it compare to the eVGA 560? The Anandtech GPU Bench seems to put the ATI one a little higher. Thoughts?

    Clear credential cache in XP?

    I have an Explorer window open on my client PC. I browsed to a Windows share and entered credentials. I changed the permissions on the share after that, but it doesn't seem to be reflected on my client end. I would like to 'log out' then log back into the share to refresh. Is it possible...

    OCR Software better than HP's?

    I just bought a HP 6500. I plan to start digitizing my filing cabinet. I tried out the OCR software (I.R.I.S.) that came with the printer, but I was wondering if there were better free options out there?

    Am I crazy or is my new PSU dead?

    Ok, I'm working on my brother-in-law's PC. He explained an issue to me and I told him to replace the PSU. He replaced it and the new one didn't seem to make any difference. So, I told him to return it and get another one. In the meantime I convinced him to upgrade. So, I just replaced the...

    Need mobo/cpu/vga combo deal recommendations

    My brother-in-law needs a cheap upgrade. I'd like to get him a nice combo deal that would cost no more than $250-300. I don't care if it's Intel or AMD, and I don't care if it can game. It just needs to be able to run DVDs, surf the internet, and run Win7. I usually hand pick each part of...

    Imaging Systems

    I'm a SharePoint Dev/Admin. SP is very good for searching through documents. It can be expensive though. You will want a MOSS server and they can cost thousands just for the software. What kind of documents are we talking about? Word Docs? Images?
