    Completly non music.

    Brother rang, his PC is full.

    I used Team Viewer to remotely connect to his PC and found only a few spare Gb free on the boot SSD.

    Turns out he is trialing some software which copied all his images from the large capacity D drive where the My Docs folder and sub folders are located to the SSD.

    Spent an hour clearing and his SSD and looking at the trial software for its Preferences only to find that there is no way of specifying a folder location, there was some option of specifying a location for the software data files so I pointed that at a folder in the D drive hoping that when I ran the import again it would put the images in the same foldet.

    Ran the Import routine and it copied all the images again from the D to the C drive.

    To say iI am miffed is an understatement.

    I hate Windows and I hate Micky Mouse software.

    Rant over.
