      So, when you try to invoke Find, and “nothing happens”, you are saying that the strip does not appear at the bottom of the screen?

      Macrium information for partition alignment is in the User Guide.
      Direct page online. And on pages 199-200 of the PDF.

      the Find in this page in Firefox dose not working

      does not say just WHAT is not working as expected. I just did the [ Ctrl+F ] to invoke Find. Here is the result. This strip is at the bottom of the screen. (Not shown here is the [ X ] at the right end of the strip; clicking on it removes this Find strip.)
      FindStrip

      Sportman: Are you saying that this Find strip does not appear?
      Or that the strip does appear, but that when you key into the box at the left end, that there is no Find action?
      Or that you cannot key in anything?

      What are the file types of these couple (is it exactly two?) files? Always the same two?
      What process/program creates them?
      When you go to change the Owner, who is listed as the Current Owner?

      “And those files are not the only ones changed – just refused.”
      – ‘Changed’? – Other files also with different owners, but copy works anyway?

      OK, I’m missing some comprehension. His sample data file has 15 data lines, 3 customers, and 3 Fax numbers (actually 4 since there is a [blank]). The Filtered result has 4 lines, 1 line per Fax number. From his request:

      Fax numbers being a unique list.

      What may be confusing the issue is that the Customer column and the Fax column are both in (‘parallel’) ascending sequence. I would think that appropriate preceding Sorts would clarify this, however, for the real data.

      PS on my Reply earlier – I have not experimented with the ‘Copy to another location’. I don’t know if this would be of help for what is wanted.

      Another consideration (System vs Programs on separate drives) is that the Registry has many pointers to programs. Gone are the days when a program was truly portable; now they are Installed, and the Registry is an Umpire/Mediator ‘tween you and them. So, Programs separate are, generally, of no benefit if System crashes – unless one had an instantaneous/current image of the Registry files. For all users.

      In theory, more parallelism (accessors) is goodness – but now one is getting into the Data Center / Server environment.

      Silly and (unintentionally) insulting. Do you have multiple printers available? Perchance was a different printer selected for printing? (I’ve seen it happen.)
      Far-out idea (probably won’t help): Really do print to another printer, then switch back.

      Off topic: I tried to reply a few minutes ago, but it evaporated and returned this:

      I have no clue what I did wrong.

      I don’t have Access, but I do have Excel 2003.
      This works:
      Data > Filter > Advanced Filter > [check] Unique records only
      Uniqued

      Be sure to include the column header.
      Easy clean up from here.

      Do you have Access? Does Access have the ability to eliminate duplicates?
      I don’t have Access, and don’t know its functionality; but I do use Lotus Approach, which can select unique records.
      If Yes to the questions: Open the Excel file in Access, and perform the selections.

      In Lotus Approach it is: use the Find/Sort Assistant, and ‘Find distinct records’. One then can export the (selected fields from the) records into another file – which could be XLS. Do note that during the selection process, the first located record is selected; additional records with that same data field are bypassed. Thus: IF you need to retain certain accompanying fields with the ‘first’, you will need first to Sort the file so as to ensure that the desired data are at the top.

      Please give us everything that is on the line after you type in the command, before you tap the Enter key.
      This is the line that starts with [ C:\ ].

      You may have to copy it to a piece of paper to move it from the problem computer to the one you are using for Woody. Be sure exactly to replicate where the spaces are and aren’t.

      Oops – Sorry – Moderate Revision. Should’a measured twice.

      Delete items 2-5. (1 already created on the Desktop the file [ ipconfig.txt ].)
      7 – Copy from the Desktop to the USB stick the file created in 1.
      (This could be: [ copy desktop\ipconfig.txt x: ]. (Substitute for ‘x’ whatever the memory stick shows as. There are no spaces in the string “desktop\ipconfig.txt”; there are spaces after ‘copy’, and before ‘x:’) Note that PKCano inadvertently has a space preceding ‘.txt’.)
      8-11 – no change
