I agree that dual-boot refers to a Windows/Linux decision; each using its own partition. That does not necessarily mean that the file systems are exclusive to the chosen OS. Knoppix, boots from CD and can read either linux or windows files from the hard drives in the machine. I think the "boot from ...

Seeking windows "dir" that selects on date&Tim

I wish to scan a windows file system and select files that were created or touched within a narrow time span; say 1 to 15 minutes. Something like what the windows explorer GUI search does except command line and specifying hours and minutes; not just the day. I'm trying to identify peaks of network ...

Seeking a scripting tool to throw URLs at my ISP connection

I am seeking something similar to what used to be "twill". Which appears to have died out in 2007 or so. I have users complaining of slow internet performance over their 768k sDSL IPS lines. Burdened down with VPN overhead etc. So, yeah, it's not a rocket ship. But I need to measure the actual perfo...

Is anyone working in ICM for small business?

My original question was about ICM (information content management). The thread has evolved in to issues of backup and system recovery. I'll put here what I have learned in past week about content management. Most likely path of home-rolled ICM techniques, that is short of buying Abrevity, is Micros...

What is "critical path" resource?

RedRage, What is the critical resource in your Samba based solution? By this I mean, what do most need more of? For example, runtime for the scripts (similar to backup windows), disk storage for the results of your scans and analysis, temporary storage (shadow copy uses a lot of unannounced temporar...

Is anyone working in ICM for small business?

ICM is relatively new acronym for Information Content Management. The commercial tool that exemplifies what I mean is Abrevity. It costs over $15K. For small business, less than 2 Terabytes of data, one might tackle this concept in shell scripting, mySQL, etc. My firm is a non-profit of this size.

Using Win2000 Server Active Dir and WinXP Pro workstation. Roaming profile folder has a spelling error.

I am deploying, on Windows XP Pro workstations, one of those apps from hell in which the programmers assume that all users are running with full admin rights! When the user is running as Power User, as per my policy, then the app fails. The programmers sent me a workaround which requires, on each ma...

Pointers, please to a good site or hard copy book on how Windows Active Directory Group Policy really works. I'll not create another long description. Suffice it to say that the results from testing don't match the conclusions one tries to draw from the Microsoft docs.

Thank you all for the hints and tips. No one has taken up the gauntlet of the problem with the whole GUI metaphor in the corporate world! The XP GUI especially is very consumer & entertainment centric. Which is good at home; and would be fine in XP Home Edition only. Why is not XP Pro more flexible ...

I confess to being a programming-centric problem solver. If I just wrote a bunch of officious policy memos I wouldn't have the chance to learn from you folks!

Thank you for the "well written" compliment. Let's none of us start the debate about my writing skills.
