Vista "blocking" my files...
But... I have over 33,000 files in my DLs right now (and a zillion others that are waiting) I don't want to have to right-click on each file to see if it's blocked or not, then click the unblock button. *yikes*
If they truly are blocked (and not read by the game) then I need to find a solution that:
A) easily locates the blocked files and
B) unblock them all
then C) I need to know how to prevent Vista doing this to every new thing I DL. *Geesh - Microsloth FAIL again!*
Thanks for thinkin' with me!
there: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libra...53659.aspx ,perhaps it helps to speed up things
and this too: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67717-...-file.html
But, I'm not finding a solution that makes enough sense for me to carry out.
Is anyone else on a Vista 64bit? If so, would you please check Pes' nounlinkondelete.package file and see if it in 'blocked' too? This is very strange, I have to figure it out...
I don't have gpedit.msc available on either of my machines (yes, I found blocked files on my netbook/W8.1 as well *sigh*) They're both 'home' version OSes.
I'm wary of messing with "streams" as I'm not sure what they are - and he gives plenty of warnings that apply to me... I think?
Do you think I should try it?
@leefish, @celebkiriedhel, and @BoilingOil - Can/should I attempt to do this?
I'm such a big baby :cry:
The other strange thing about this anomaly... The files that are blocked (that I've found so far) are the important "no spawn" type files, and Arek's choose-your-cemetery, etc...
ETA: *Big breath* OK. I tried it... The instructions are in blue high-light on the black page. The black cmd box says it couldn't find anything... yet, there's my nounlinkondelete file's property box saying the files is 'blocked'
What do I do now?
But to be honest, I'm horrified that there's still a presumably somewhat sane person using Vista! Even when that OS was new and "da bomb", many of even the most avid windows lovers abhored it, and thought it was vile, evil, miserable and stupid. Much better, saner alternatives exist.
