    An App that displays 'virtual' files & folders?


    Hi,
    I was just wondering if there is an app that exists that allows you to show all your selected folders or drives and their file content but without them actually being really there?!
    It's hard to explain...I want to be able to have an ultra-light portable version of my drives but only to verify it's content not to actually be able to open or execute any files in the drives.

    If I explain my workaround you'll maybe better understand. For now, the only way I've found to do what I'm trying to do is to use Nero: As if I was going to burn a CD/DVD, I created an impossible and absurd compilation with an entire drive of 3Tb!! I'll then save that Nero compilation file and end up with a .nru file of +-500Mb that allows me to browse folders and files of my entire drive, even if the drive is not physically present. Nero will then show an 'x' next to each and every file to indicate they are not present but that's the whole point of what I'm trying to achieve! To be able to see the files and folders even if I'm away from the PC that has that drive. I just carry a portablized version of Nero and that 500Mb .nru file on a USB stick and I can browse that disk anytime, anywhere.

    I'm looking obviously for a much slicker and flexible approach than this of course. Something that would maybe even do automatic backups but more importantly, to be able to compare several backups and workout the missing or newer files.
    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Has anyone had an APP that displays Facebook status to some of their Friends as if its been typed twice?

    Whatever APP a Friend is using on his Samsung tablet for these things that he keeps posting is messed up and it displays it as it he'd typed the same thing twice on each one. Here's a PrintScreen of this one that I just took and then cropped your name &
    the m.facebook.com site link box off of before I used it here.

    What's weird is that the next time I look at the same meme, it is displayed correctly. So I don't know if the problem is on your phone or maybe it is on mine somehow?

    I'm one of the weirdoes that uses a Windows 8.1 Nokia Lumia 635 phone and not an Android or iPhone or I use my DELL desktop pc.
    I don't use the Facebook APP. I use Facebook via m.facebook.com on my phone's Internet Explorer.

    So I can't find anything like that row of dots that you say can add a border or change the color.

    I just use a Windows phone so that it syncs all of the Contacts, the Calendar and other stuff.

    Here's what I see when I'm about to post something.

    Here's a sample as it originally is displayed and then the next one is what I see after I tap Comment:

    Somehow it fixes itself when I tap the Comment link and it moves off of my News Feed page to a that only has their posting on it. Here's that:

    Issues with projecting the display.

    Hi,

    I'm not running any virtual machines. By virtual display I mean in the display settings there are 3 boxes representing displays, but I have only plugged in one via HDMI and have the laptop display itself. The HDMI identifies as screen 3 and laptop is 1.
    2 is nothing but is therein the settings. I can only duplicate 1&2, not 1&3.
