Well, that was easy!
Agent finally came to the top of my agenda before the closing bell
I'd read the link before, but now I studied it and followed the
instructions. Still no "desktop.ini" in the Agent folder -- but
what's this? A subfolder labeled "Desktop on optiplex4" does not
belong here! Since it isn't *my* subfolder, I dragged it to my
desktop, to be deleted when I could give it my full attention.
Backing up to the thumb drive went without a hitch, backing up to
Optiplex4 went without a hitch, deleting the polluted back-up from the
thumbdrive ran into a desktop.ini hitch.
And it's still ten minutes before I have to shut down the computer.
