Hello All,

Today, I created a tutorial explaining how I set up my iPhone X so that messages in Microsoft Outlook 365 could be deleted by swiping from right to left.  Please note that, despite numerous assurances from Google searches, you can't set this up from the Mail app inside the Control Center of the phone.  It must be done from the Outlook app.
My tutorial seeks to explain the process with a series of video and still image captures.

Never mind.  I found the results in Event Viewer.  Memories all O.K.

I tried the built-in Microsoft Memory Test mentioned at our November 5 meeting. It ran and said  it would display results upon re-start.  Upon completion I waited, nothing happened, so I re-started.  No results were displayed.
What did I do wrong?

General Discussion / Outlook .ost file Outdated - Delete and Recreate
« Last post by rsutter on November 04, 2017, 10:30:46 AM »
Hello All,
Recently, I replaced the hard drive on my laptop with a larger drive.
For the record, I backed up the first hard drive using Acronis True Image and then restored it to the larger drive
The move was successful until I opened Microsoft Outlook 365.
That program advised that I was running an outdated version of the .ost file asking me to close Outlook and delete the .ost file
Unfortunately, Outlook offered no clue as to where that file was located or how to delete it.

I searched on-line for guidance.  Finding nothing useful, I tried my own hand at solving the problem.

I have posted on YouTube the steps that I took to successfully delete the Outlook 2016 .ost file and have Outlook recreate a current version.

I use a "custom" full back up of the entire OS, not daily but whenever I decide to back it up. Unless you select "Full Backup - No Deletions of Prior", Acronis (not Windows) will automatically delete your prior custom backup each time you create a new backup file. This option comes under the heading of "Backup Scheme". A snip of the Acronis screen is attached.

The Windows.old file is slightly larger than 18GB after 1709 is installed, with a little compression 10 GB seems about right for the increased image file. Microsoft will get rid of that file after a reasonable length of time or you may run Disk Cleanup and check previous versions of Operating System and let it do the job for you.

Since I did my Win 10 V 1709 Creators Update install, my Acronis Back Up has been over 10 GB larger.  Has anyone else had this happen?  Is it a Microsoft choice of holding on to the last Version for a while in case of a need to return to the last version, or is V 1709 really that much larger, or have I just held on to too much email or new programs? (I noticed that the last SLOBytes Newsletter seemed longer.....).
I would appreciate hearing any thoughts on this.
I guess I don't really understand the Public versus the Private settings for one's Network.  For example, my computer is set for Public, which it states it can't be used for printer and file sharing.  Yet I am able to use my printer on both of my Windows 10 machines, and via AirPrint on my Apple iPad. Also, I can share my Roboform logins on my main Windows machine with my other Windows machine.
Can someone find a nice simple explanation?  Thanks!

Thanks for the great video.  My problem is that after I click on "Change connection properties" I get a different page than you showed in your video. 
The page that I get has a section about Metered Connections and a section labeled Properties which shows the properties of the NIC.  I have searched the internet and found a couple of suggestions similar to yours, all showing a page that I don't have.  It looks like I will have to talk to Microsoft.
