Windows 7 To the fine folks at Redmond: Thank you!

Thank you for the chance to test 7! I had never even seen Vista prior to this, let alone work with anything like it.

Due to operator error, I tried to reload Windows Me (don't ask) on a separate drive, but had left the 7 beta drive plugged in. The Me install created some funky partition on the 7's drive, and screwed up its bootability. Luckily, I have a license for an app called Bootmaster Partition Recovery, and simply removed the unreadable, wayward FAT16 partition. Then, I used the Windows 7 Beta Recovery CD I'd burned on installation. Problem solved, except now, instead of the animated W7 logo on load, a small green animated status bar precedes login.

But the real reason I'm providing feedback today is to announce that Windows Explorer shows two Download folders having identical contents; when one is deleted, both are deleted. Could this issue be resolved via registry?

Thanks again for granting me this opportunity to try to intentionally break your product! :)
