  1. It is a very good presentation and very helpful to understand the whole concept of dental impression material.

  2. It's called internally every time you add a new item to the list. As the name suggests, ArrayList uses an Array to store the items. To get around this I have had to manually grant myself file permissions on MDF and LDF files before moving or deleting them. I would guess it is some kind of recover deleted files from sd card also, but it sounds like you've done the work to fix this

  3. You make so many great points here that I read your article a couple of times. Your views are in accordance with my own for the most part. This is great content for your readers. alginates
