A/V File Sharing

Why, in this modern age of file sharing, do some musical artists seem to openly welcome live audio recording/sharing of concerts but appear reluctant, if not actively opposed, to live video recording/sharing of the same events?

Mac-to-PC File Names

I am trying to transfer a large number of files (mostly word documents and excel files) from older Macs (G3s and one '02 iMac) to a Windows Server 2003. The problem is that most of these files were created several years back on OS 9.x and have file names with characters the server does not to recognize as valid. This then stops the transfer of all files, shutting down the whole transfer. Short of going through 1,000s of files one by one to check the names are valid or moving each file over one-by-one, what can I do? Does anyone have any suggestions or experience?

Batch renaming files

I'm looking for a good way to tweak bunches of files. I'm pretty sure there's been a question about this before, and "Batch Rename" was recommended. Looking for other recommendations, or advice on Batch Rename. [more inside]

OSX File Sharing

Best peer-to-peer file sharing program for Mac OS X? I'm using Limewire now, and am wondering if there is another program offering a better selection, ie, with more members. I'm mostly interested in audio files. Is there software allowing the downloading of entire albums at a time?

Archiving Files

Does anyone have any good picture/file archiving software? Specifically, I'm looking for a Windows or linux program that will do the following:

1) Support full and differential or incremental backups of directories (i.e.: just the ones that have changed since the last backup or the first backup).

2) Burn both CDs and DVDs (not using other packet-writing software).

3) Create normally readable, uncompressed discs (not blob files that can only be read by the same program).

4) Preferably, include an html preview of the whole backup set on each disc.

Basically, I think I'm looking for the exact feature set of Archive Creator, but with incremental backups or "all files created since" features, which it does not seem to do.

Extensions

Rencently I installed something that decided to associate a bunch of common file extensions with it. This re-brought to my attention a problem that has plagued me for quite some time:every time I try to modify what programs are associated with a given extension the I am unable to. Example: say I'm browsing a directory using Explorer. I notice that .tif files are no longer associated with photoshop. I right-click and select Open With>Chose Program. The task hangs. The same thing happens when I view file properties:
Type of file: $filetype
Opens with: $someapp ........ CHANGE...
If I click CHANGE, the properties dialog "is no longer responding". Lastly, trying to change the default file associations by going to: Settings>Control Panal>Folder Options>File Types>
results in that applet freezing. HELP [more inside]

How do you tell what app is locking a file in Windows?

Win XP

Two XP questions in a row! Does anybody know how to remove the "Windows cannot open this file" dialog box that offers a web service? I'd like this to act like it did in previous versions of Windows, just going directly to the "Choose the program you want to use to open this file" dialog. Google has failed me.

Missing Extensions

How do you find out the extension of a file where it has been removed? I think it's a compressed file but I can't seem to get the slightest clue beyond that.
