Hi, Mason, Yes, thank you for this. It is most enlightening. There were two files that had an error extracting, but WinRAR corrected them: One had a question mark in the filename which is a wild card for a single character in Windows The other had a string of asterisks and an asterisk is a wild card for any number of characters, hence the infamous del *.* command where you erase everything. It replaced the ? and * with underscores _ Cheers, Richard On 2013-07-01 1:38 PM, Carl Pultz wrote: > Wow - thank you!
