    Re confusion over 64 bit/32 bit. When I access the registry from my Current Admin User Account, ie/ type Start + R and type regedit into the box, registry shows C:\Funf 32bit but the Windows build is 64 bit. So I wonder if I am correct to say I have 64 bit Windows.

    Re: Toshiba external hard drive, I am having trouble finding the precise directions I followed yesterday.
    It was simple enough to change to the Toshiba Drive (W drive) . Response is W: on a fresh line. Typing in diskpart brings up fresh line DISKPART - I type in list disk and it lists the 2 disks (I assume one is C Drive - Disk 0 ; the other hasstorage of over 900 GB so that is the Toshiba one. Only 100 MB free. I then typed a command beginning attributes but I can`t find it on Google and I cannot remember the rest of it. Sorry.
    It looks from a directive I found this afternoon as though attributes only has to do with setting read or write protect flags which I certainly did not do. I somehow found an enormous list of files some going back to 1998 - a lot of them Money Manager files. But I cannot reproduce this today. Perhaps I was still on the C Drive, not on the W Drive.
    TOSHIBA Drive Properties says it is fine, no errors and is using 655 GB of space leaving 276 free. I will probably reformat it anyway once Macrium Reflect has backed up my data. But I need to spend a bit of time collecting up what I do want in one place so I can backup without duplicating unnecessarily and often unintentionally.
    DiskPart provides a powerful set of commands.
    If you particularly wanted to use command prompt commands then I would suggest using Dir instead.
    - You can see its built-in help file by entering this in a cmd prompt window Dir /?
    - Guidance is also available at Dir - SS64
    File explorer is more straightforward.
