Here is my proposal for correction for discussion.
Note I haven't applied them to a file yet, because I don't have
a sollution for every comment that I made.

Shouldn't the unit be "MB" (also in english)?
I thougt "b" stand for bit.

Do we have a better word for "Scroll" in german?
I couldn't find it in the Duden. But who cares?
I would actually be "Rollbalken" which is a little bit long.

What's the meaning of HDD? shouldn't it be HD (= (H)ard(d)isk)?
Or is it (H)ar(d)(d)isk, which I would find strange?
I'd prefer "Disk-Ausschaltzeit" anyway, or maybe "Plattenauschaltzeit".

You mist a Umlaut.

I'd prefer "Verzeichnis" even though I do use a Mac.
