2. Backup Windows XP

Windows XP includes its own backup program, although you may need to do some digging to find it. You can also take your pick of third-party programs (listed at the end of this column) that add bells and whistles you won't find in the basic Windows XP Backup utility.

3. Is it time to go out and buy a Mac?

We have Vista, they have Leopard, we have an anemic find, they have a great Spotlight. We have the registry, they have, well, they don't have a registry. We are the Empire, they are the Rebel Jedi. Windows vs. Macs, who is the clear winner here?

4. Removable Disks - a brief overview & history Wherever would we be without portable, inexpensive removable media? From the old, eight-inch floppy, to the latest Blue Ray DVD format, little spinning disks have provided computer users with convient, off-line storage. This is a brief overview and history of the various disk formats that have come, gone, and are - for the moment - sticking around.

Bypass missing default printer error message
Hi, everyone, , This is puzzling me: I'm making a test that runs in Excel '97 and 2000 It is made to automatically print the result page named "Eindconclusie" (see code below) and after that, saves the file to floppy disk using the students name., Under some circumstances, this test is made at places where there is no (default) printer installed. How can I bypass the line, , ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, , in such cases? , The used code is printed in whole below., , Thanks in advance..., , Dago, , Sub Avoltooien(), Sheets("Eindconclusie").Select, ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMinimized, ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Sheets("Afsluiting").Select, ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMaximized, ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="A:\" & Range("┤Voorblad┤!G17").Formula, _, FileFormat:=xlNormal, _, ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False, End Sub

Thry doing this before the line, , If Printers.Count > 0 then, , this wont help if they have a printer installed but none set as default, but it should handle most situations.

Yes. Use the GetLogicalDrives function. If a removable drive is removed, it's cooresponding logical drive will be removed., , The function in my first message tells if removable MEDIA is in the drive. This always takes longer because the drive has to spin up.
