    How to change the presentation of files in the file/folder browser


    Hi,
    I could use a little help in taking control of the manner in which the file browser presents the files. I have a C drive and 4 data drives. Each data drive has it's unique structure and should be presented as such. For example: in the most of the music drive I want to see only the following: Name, title, size and length. In another folder just the Name, and size. When I go to the 'Customize' tab on the properties popup I have a choice of General Items, Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos.

    If I select music and check the 'Also apply to subfolders' then click either OK, or Apply it doesn't do it. In fact I can arrange any folder the way I want but it never remembers. Because I figured it might be because I did not own the folder I used 'Take Ownership' but still no work.

    Perhaps it is in the 'change folder and search' options. Maybe someone has an idea.

    Thanks for reading!



    :)

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one
