  1. If interested, see post of same title on the File Management newsgroup.

    I apologize if this is a cross-post. I've never understood what that means
    or why it's a no-no.

  2. It's not a cross-post. It's multi-posted. Cross-posting is addressing
    a *single* message to more than one newsgroup. Cross-posting is fine,
    if it's not done excessively and if it's to related newsgroups.

    Please do not send the same message separately to more than one
    newsgroup (called multiposting). Doing so just fragments the thread,
    so someone who answers in one newsgroup doesn't get to see answers
    from others in another newsgroup. And for those who read all the
    newsgroups the message is multiposted to, they see the message
    multiple times instead of once (they would see it only once if you
    correctly crossposted instead). This wastes everyone's time, and gets
    you poorer help than you should get.

    If you must send the same message to more than one newsgroup, please
    do so by crossposting (but only to a *few* related newsgroups).
