the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics

the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy

OK, I know there are several ways to view the contents of your hard drive
(normally drive "C" ), but here's one that isnt used often.

3. Hit Enter and voila! You should see the contents of your C:
