Under Win98/Windows Explorer/views I cannot "view" file "Details" ie. file size/type/date etc. the right hand pane becomes blank.
I can view under files under "list" but that does not show size/type/date etc.

Have you tried the following?

In Windows Explorer, click in the pane (on the right) that displays the folder contents. Press CTRL+PLUS SIGN (make sure to use the PLUS SIGN key on the numeric keypad).
This will set the columns to use a minimal amount of space.

Right click on the file and then look at "Properties".

If you need to look at file contents without opening file, try Notepad, Wordpad, or Quikview Plus.
