In my RH8 project, I have a disappearing folder and one, un-removeable, permanent folder ???

I am using RH8 with both updates installed on a Win XP system.  As you might know from my other postings, ignorance (my own and mine alone) has caused several problems for me.  I did not know that the folders in the RH Project Manager were pseudo-folders.
Okay, here's what I did first and I think I understand what RH did in response.  I wanted to create separate folders for each major sub-division in the Help project and segregate the images for those topics, also.  I tried creating a "subdiv_1_topics" folder with a "subdiv_1_images" folder as a subfolder.
I could not get RH to generate WebHelp with any files in these sub-topic and sub-sub-image folders.
I tried to return to the "status quo" by deleting the folders I had created.  However, I have never been able to delete one of the image folders.  It is nested in the RH Images folder but my images folder (lower case i) is now the MAIN images folder.
I learned about this, the very hardest way.  I discovered that I could move image files, one-at-a-time, from my images folder up to the RH Images folder.  I thought I was putting the images back where they belonged but I was wrong.
On my local drive, RH was moving each image out of the Images folder and was putting it into the root with all the topic htm files and RH files. I did not notice this and I went completely through the WebHelp generation process and our process of moving the generated files from the WebHelp folder to our SVN repository.  Then, I left for the evening.
Next morning, first thing, my boss and I were both apoplectic when we discover that all of the images are gone from the Help topics. A quick check of Windows Explorer and the RH folder/file explorer showed what had happened.  I spend the next 3 hours moving all the images, one-at-a-time, from the topics area back to my images folder under the RH Images folder.
I have left them alone since ... NOW, the NEW EVENT:  I wanted to create a folder just for a few topics that had been prepared in advance for future application enhancements.  I was going to ask this forum if there was a way to block RH8 from touching that folder when I generated WebHelp ... I noticed a dfferent problem.  The folder that I created is gone from RH but in the right place in Windows Explorer.  I am baffled.  In summary, in a perfect world, I would have the RH HTML Files (Topics) folder with just the HTM files and all the attending RH files.  Then, as either a sub-folder to the topics folder, or as an equal folder, I would like a place to put these several files for future use, with the folder protected from WebHelp generation until I say so.  This is just for convenience.  Then, I would like to have the RH Images folder with all the project images but no sub-folder where the images lie right now.
Feel free to contact me off this forum.  Sorry, if I am too breezy here.

Sorry Ernie that wasnt the problem, i highlight the folder and REBUILD is greyed out
I highlight INBOX and select REBUILD it does something to INBOX and APPLE HOT NEWS folders, but does nothing to any of the  other folders.
yeah, that is the only folder with a problem.
getting a little frustrated now, i created another "mailbox" inside that Mailbox/folder and of course the little triangle displays the new folder when turned one way and hides it when turned the other way.
it seems as if i accidentally at an earlier time i created a new folder inside this folder and deleted it, possibly with the emails still it, and it hasnt updated the number of unread emails LOL.
i reckon i will just delete the darned thing all together and get on with life without any emails from "jeanie jeanie", i havent heard from her for ages anyways.

    I have 4 email accounts in apple Mail.  My mail is sending from the wrong account.  even on "reply" it sends from a different account.  I have 3 gmail accounts and one exchange server account. I choose which account to send from and it still sends from the same gmail account.  Help.

    I HAD two accounts because of this problem.  I completely removed the problem account from the Apple Mail client.  Guess what is happening??  That's right - Mail is still sending from the other account that no longer exists on my computer, and I have absolutely no idea how this is happening.  This is incredibly frustrating.  When a recipient chooses to reply to my message, quite often I won't get it now because it is going to the other account that has now been deleted from my system.  COME ON APPLE!!! WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THIS???

    There is currently no way to merge accounts.  The best option is to pick one, and use it consistantly.

    i have 2 apple ids and one is from years ago when icloud wasnt a thought but now somehow it became my primary apple id and i cant photo stream with the apple id i use. Even if im signed into my old one the photo stream doesnt automatically go to my mac. Im not exactly technology savy but id love to figure this out.

    I have also noticed the same "problem".  I do not fully understand the impact of using the same ID on multiple computers and devices if I want to keep them all in sync.

  • I have two accounts ( mine and one other) which show when I log on,do not need the second one showing so how do I make it "disappear" (not deleted)?

    I have two accounts (A and B) from the same provider on my pc, B is also on another pc and used by someone other than me. Thus, B on my pc is a duplicate and I do not want it displayed on my pc. How do I get it off?

    What's wrong with deleting B?

  • HT5621 We have 2 I phones and One Pad. We try to update applications and his phone never accepts the password for his Apple ID. We backup to same computer. He does what Apple recommends to change his password but it never works . Help

    We have 2 I phones and 1 I-pad we try to update on the same Windows 7 computer. The Apple ID continually prevents one I phone user to update applications. How do we share one

    Did he have find my iPhone enabled under that iCloud account?  If so, add the account back to his phone.  Then in the iCloud account settings, disable find my iPhone first (you will be prompted for your password), then remove the account.
    Now you can create or add a new iCloud account to it using his own AppleID.
    Alternatively, you could log in to your account in a web browser.  Using the find my iPhone app there, remove his iPhone from your list of associated devices (he will have to power his iPhone off for you to do that).
    After his iPhone is set up for his own iCloud account, on your iPhone, go to
    settings->iCoud->Storage & Backup->Manage Storage and delete his iPhone's backup file to make more room on your own iCloud storage account.

    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    Do the following:
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Reinstall Snow Leopard
    If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    Download and install the Combo Updater for the version you prefer from

  • Help, I have two Itunes accounts, and one ipod.

    I downloaded Itunes on a friends computer and purchased a bunch if songs. When I tried to get my tunes onto my laptop, the message came up "the owners I-pod is linked to another itunes library. Do you want to change it (or something like that)?" The problem is that i've bought all of these songs but they don't show up when I hook the ipod up to my laptop. I even deleted the Itunes and ipod from my friends computer. I still cannot put the songs into my library without erasing them. How can I get my songs back onto my my laptop without having to purchase them again?

    You need to switch your iPod to manual update so you can safely connect it without having your existing library erased. When you connect your iPod you will get a message that your iPod is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press *No*. Pressing "Yes" will irretrievably remove all songs from your iPod. Your iPod should appear in the iTunes source list from where you can change the update setting to manual.
    You can use a keyboard command to prevent your iPod auto-syncing with iTunes. While connecting the iPod to the computer on Windows hold down the Shift + Ctrl keys (on a Mac hold down the Option and Command (⌥ and ⌘) keys). This will stop the iPod from auto-syncing with iTunes and the iPod will appear in the source list. Wait until you are sure the iPod has mounted, and that it will not auto sync and then you can let the keys go. This may take between 20 to 30 seconds depending on your computer. Then go to Preferences>iPod and check the "Manually manage songs and playlists" box: Managing Your Songs Manually
    There is a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive on Windows posted in this thread: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    There are also a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the files from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward.

    YamiPod Mac and Windows Versions

  • I have serval i products and one icloud account, why I'm I pentalized for have my devices on 1 account?

    Icound gives you 5GB storage witch is great for one device. However when you link multipol devices to the same account the 5GB is not enough. I feel Icloud want me to set up multipol clouds making management difficult of my products.  Where is the incentive to have more i products if you can not link them unless they exstort $24 from you a year?
    If icloud truely supported iproduct than they should base the storage on the number of devices.
    Currently no incentive to buy anouther iproduct because I will be forced to start a new icloud account because I have exceeded my storage with the 4 devices I have.
    Is thier a work arround other than the $24 / year for loyal apple users???

    Photos from iPhone Camera Roll should always be backed up on computer like any other digital camera.
    iCloud is not your storage space, only for your backup..

  • We have 2 iphones 4 and one ipod touch and they all use the same apple address for purchases.  How do we stop getting each others texts?

    We are recieveing each others texts, it has only happened since we upgrated to iOS6.  We only get each others iMessages.

    You have two issues: 1. iPad is designed for single person use, not multiple users like a computer is, 2. Everyone trying to use this "single person" device uses the same Apple ID. As far as iMessage is concerned, this is the same would it know differently?
    There is no solution to fix this. Even if everyone got their own Apple ID's, you're still trying to use a device, designed to be used by a single user, with multiple users. It simple is not gonna work, and if you manage to get it to work, it won't work very well.

  • How come some of my itunes songs have a "check mark" and ones that do not say the file cannot be found.

    How come some of my ITunes songs have a check mark next to them and the songs that do not have it, I receive a error message " the file could not be found"  The songs are on my Ipod and Ipad2.  Is my itunes library screwed up?  Can someone tell me how to clean up my library?

    This happens if the file is no longer where iTunes expects to find it. Possible causes are that you or some third party tool has moved, renamed or deleted the file, or that the drive it lives on has had a change of drive letter. It is also possible that iTunes has changed from expecting the files to be in the pre-iTunes 9 layout to post-iTunes 9 layout,or vice-versa, and so is looking in slightly the wrong place.
    Select a track with an exclamation mark, use Ctrl-I to get info, then cancel when asked to try to locate the track. Look on the summary tab for the location that iTunes thinks the file should be. Now take a look around your hard drive(s). Hopefully you can locate the track in question. If a section of your library has simply been moved, or a drive letter has changed, it should be possible to reverse the actions.
    Alternatively, as long as you can find a location holding the missing files, then you should be able to use my FindTracks script to reconnect them to iTunes.

  • I have 2 smart phones and one dumb phone. How cheap of a plan can I get?

    So 3 members of my family (including myself) share a Verizon account. Here's what the plan looks like:
    Both smartphones started out with unlimited data, but after the upgrades (and my sister already has), we'll all be downgraded to the 2GB plan. In the end, we decided we'd simply stop using data (except where absolutely necessary like Facebook and Google Talk notifications), but the cheapest share everything plan seems to be more expensive than what we currently have:
    This totally sucks! Is there any way I can go lower? I'm willing to explore options before taking my business elsewhere…

    My guess is the discount is some sort of employee group discount, such as gov employee or school employee.  Mine is 19% off my primary line and data.

  • HT204135 I have two Epson printers and one Canon printer. Why am I unable to access the same print options on my MacBook Pro as I could on mp PC i.e. select paper type and print quality?

    I have just purchased a MacBook Pro as my PC has finaly died.
    I have three Inkjet printers i.e. Epson Photo PX700W Epson Photo R340 and a Canon Pixma ip4600 which I connected to my Mac and the print drivers were automatically downloaded. Now when I print using any of the printers the functionality PC i.e. Choice of paper and print quality settings. Is this all I get when using the Mac OS lion or should the functionality be on a par with Windows?

    Depending on the application you are printing from, you may need to press the Show Details button in the print dialog to see all of the additional driver menus.
    The image below is for the extended print dialog of TextEdit and for a Canon MP990 printer. The Show Details button is on the bottom of the print dialog and will change to Hide Details when selected. And with the menu changed to Quality & Media, you have paper options and print quality settings.
