Be sure to clear the drive before he uninstalls. It may get wiped.

And you overpaid by $6-7 at most - down in the noise. Buy.com seems to have the cheapest prices on flash these days, unless you want to indulge in the make-work of rebates.
Thanks. I haven’t even used it yet, except to see that it works.

That was Costco’s price, which is usually about the lowest I can find on the hardware they sell that I can use.

The files are more of an irritant than anything else; I want to see a list of my stuff on my drive, not proprietary junk of no use to me. But I will show Pete your rant before asking him to expose his computer to the insidious files — give him a chance to opt out. <g>
