I have been looking for a freeware alternative to "Path Too Long" for quite a long time with no luck. I found only one forum with a manual way of doing it.

The solutions (as seen here)was:

"I finally deleted all of the folders by drilling down to the almost endless copies of Application Data and moving subsequent levels to the root of the D:\ and deleting piece by piece. …"

Hello, I was having troubles with deleting some files and folders in windows 7, I used a software called longpath. It works fine. Do I have any other options to do that thing? Or is it ok to be with longpath? Anyone over here tried that thing? This tool has more options too. Any ideas please?

longpathtool .com

Currently my two favorite games are Minecraft (addicted) and Portal 2 (awesome)

Fedora was also the first linux OS I ever installed :) Many years ago now.

At the moment I just stick with Ubuntu whenever I need linux, as I spend most of my time using Windows 7. So both Windows and Ubuntu are dual-booted on my PC.

It's been quiet lately on HobStar. I've been busy growing the 'local' support I offer for people who live in Melbourne and have been setting a new site for supporting people outside of the Melbourne area. A few thing have been added and there is lots to come.

NEW

  • New Forum Structure.
    • Different sections for different OS's

Check it out at the forum to get involved.

Now Supporting;

  • Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7
  • Linux; Fedora 10, DreamLinux, Mint & more to come
  • MAC; OS X

Coming Soon

  • Dropbox integration for HobStar users
  • Clean-Up scripts to automate cleaning of your PC
  • New design for the PC Software page (using tabs)
  • LOTS of new free software listed
  • A HobStar sister site, HobStarCS Support, which will be a paid subscription site with Documentation on every possible topic for Windows, Linux and Mac. How-To videos, tutorials and much more. As well as providing support that are not close enough for me to travel to

It's been a long time between site news updates. I have been very busy with the arrival of my third daughter and also trying to get some things fixed up on the site as well.

  • Special welcomes go to our newest members RobElliottRobElliott and Steve WilliamsSteve Williams. Rob has been instrumental in the development and application of the new theme currently under construction. Rob has taught me a lot about CSS and also motivated me to 'step-up' my CSS learning. Steve is a prodigy with DreamLinux so stay tuned for some very interesting pages on different operating systems, especially Linux related ones.
  • As previously mentioned, a new theme is currently being implemented. Please be patient as this process is completed, comments and suggestions are welcome.
  • PC Software is up and running. New software being added soon, 9 NEW categories also coming soon (see here to suggest one)
  • A new episode of "Super Mario Brothers Z" is available in the Flash Theater
  • Website Building & Hosting now has correct prices ($AUD), better layout for existing customers to come soon.
  • I have created the Hob-Blog. here I will be presenting lessons on how to complete tasks that will help you to become more familiar with your PC.
  • Also, watch out for Video Tutorials which will start to pop up around the site soon.

Q about DreamLinux ? I wrote the book, Ask me.

There is most likely an anti-virus program that is trying to scan you emails while Outlook Express is trying to compress them.

Try this;
1. Close all other programs that might be trying to access the Internet
NB: We are going to disable your Anti-Virus, so do not open any email attachments, visit any unknown Internet pages or download/ install any new software until you complete the following steps
2. Open 'Task Manager' (Hold [Ctrl] + [Alt] and the press [Del])
3. Select the 'Processes' tab
4. LMC (Left Mouse Click) the column heading 'Image Name' to sort it alphabetically
5. Find your Anti-Virus program. e.g If you are running AVG, look for entries that start with 'avg…'
6. RMC (Right Mouse Click) on each process for your Anti-Virus and select 'End Process'
7. Try and re-compress you emails in Outlook Express
8a. Re-start your Anti-Virus by navigating to "Start -> All Programs -> "Your Anit-Virus" -> User Console (or something like that"
8b. If that fails to re-start your Anti-Virus, Re-boot your system as Anti-Virus programs are set to start when your PC does.

So, if at step 7. you are able to successfully compress your emails, your Anti-Virus is stopping you.

I suggesting trying a really good FREE Anti-Virus called 'MoonAV' which you can find on this site here.

IMPORTANT: Before un-installing any Anti-Virus, make sure you have a new one installed first.

Please let me know how you go and whether or not you require further assistance.

When I shut down Outlook Express it asks if I want to compact my email files. I click Ok and off it goes. But when it gets near the end of compressing the Sent folder it throws an error message saying it is being used by Outlook Express or another program though I cannot see what. Any clues?.

Sorry, only just noticed this thread. The mailform module is at http://www.wikidot.com/doc:mailform-module and you can see an example of the syntax on my page here.

Re: theme problems with ie by HobStarCSHobStarCS, 30 Oct 2009 09:21

I only realised yesterday that for IE8 Microsoft unhelpfully changed the changed the way they handle opacity, so you can't use the same CSS for IE8 for this as for IE7, IE6 FF etc etc etc. I have put the new syntax into the CSS and for me the link is not showing in IE8 so that shoud be the same for you now.
