    @zbook, nothing wrong with WeTransfer. I downloaded the nfo file and was able to open it without any problems.
    The we transfer share link is different from the other 4.
    Most end users do not use the pay version.

    True, definitely not a site we would want to use then. Much prefer to have the uploaded data stay around a lot longer.

    I only used it because the upload link to Box.com in Thunderbird rejected the file, the first time I have encountered that. I have since found out why: Box.com will not accept uploads through links such as the one in Thunderbird for files that cannot be previewed on line.

    Wondering before I was provided a link to the information about why the failure in Tb, I opened my Box account and was able to upload the file, and after a few minutes, figured out how to create a link to it, a process that is automated when one uploads through Tb and other similar links. Files remain on Box until deleted by the owner.

    Thanks for doing that. I had downloaded, scanned, and opened the file. I normally upload files to Box.com through Thunderbird, but the .nfo file was rejected. One of the sysops on the mozillaZine Thunderbird forum gave me a link to a Box.com file that shows why the .nfo file was rejected: Box has a list of file extensions it will accept through links such as the one in Thunderbird, but does not accept link uploads for files than cannot be previewed, and .nfo files cannot be previewed on Box.com.

    I know that they cannot be previewed, as I opened my Box account, uploaded the file, figured out how to create a link to it (that is done automatically when the upload is made though such programs as Thunderbird. I clicked on the link, was taken directly to the .nfo file, where a download was offered, but no preview.

    Box.com security:

    Content uploaded to Box - from a single user with a Personal account to our largest Enterprise accounts - is encrypted in transit when sent through Box's website and Box-created applications, using high-strength TLS 1.2 encryption. Content is also encrypted at rest by Box using 256-bit AES encryption, and is further protected by an encryption key-wrapping strategy that also utilizes 256-bit AES encryption.

    I won't pretend that I really know what that means, but it certainly looks secure to me, and there is more information on the same Box.com page.

    Most end users don't read the fine print.
    And most end users do not use the pay version for cloud storage and transfer.

    We are not able to keep up with the fine print for each cloud software.
    So we regularly use 4 cloud software: one drive, drop box, google drive, or Amazon.

    The BSOD threads typically run 1 - 4 weeks.

    We transfer (free version) per the fine print automatically deletes the files.
    This makes it harder to troubleshoot when there is missing data.

    Thanks for the explanation of the use of cloud software, which makes sense; as I pay for a Box.com site, I use it.
    As for unknown devices, I did find one, as shown in the attached image. I looked briefly at the two links you provided for finding such things. So far, all I have seen is that the driver is from Microsoft, dated 2006; likely beyond its "Best used before date". I await your further ministrations.

    In the links please read about hardware IDs.

    I had read that and found the following fascinating information; perhaps it means something to you. I know about such things as compliance with building and fire codes, hiking trail regulations, canoe trip ethics and others; this one, I am sure you know, means nothing to me:

    In device manager > action there is an option to scan for hardware changes.
    See if that has any impact.
    If not right click uninstall device > then scan for hardware changes

    The first scan did not report anything, so I deleted the device, and scanned again. There was no actual report, but the removed device obviously is no longer shown as a hidden one. I suspect that this, whatever it was, was inert so the hardware change scans did not ever find it nor report on it.
