Not so good things - miss the hardware orientation lock switch![/quote]It's in the taskbar. Slide left to right, and you'll see the orientation lock icon.
Depends upon what the app is doing, I suppose. If you're just editing a document, then I'd say, no. But if it's doing something interactive (e.g., a Weather application that auto-updates), yes.I am worried a bit about leaving apps running - will they drain the battery quickly? - I wish there is a switch for killing each app (in the app itself rather than going to the taskbar) when you are done!
Sure there is a way to change it. You just create a redirect in Windows. You just need to spoof the location.
I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.
I asked our systems guy at work about the mklink command and did a little research at MS and it appears to work as follows. If you want to link to a directory on the same volume, you can use the /j (junction) command. If you want to link to a directory on either a separate volume or a network drive you need to use the /d (directory symlink). I noticed you used the /j command when you tried it, but I am guessing you need to use the /d command. It seems this is a bit of a change that came about with Vista, as the junction method was preferred in earlier Windows versions.
(1) Why doesn't Itunes remove the old and/or incomplete backups?
(2) Why couldn't Apple put a simple option dialog in Itunes to allow the user to choose the directory for local data? This is lazy programming.
(3) Why did Apple decide that a hidden, locked directory was the proper place to put the backup files in the first place? Because Apple was too lazy to address either (1) or (2) above, users have no easy way to clear unwanted or old data. Heck, most users probably have no idea how much space Itunes is wasting on their hard drives. Do I really need to keep all of my old firmware images stored locally on my hard drive? I can download the latest version if I need to wipe my device. Maybe that is why they chose this directory in the first place ....
(4) Why does Itunes force me to do a full backup before updating my device? And, after a successful OS update, why can I not be given the option to remove the now unneeded backup from my hard drive?
