Recently my one and only 1 TB hard drive failed.  I bought a 2 TB hard drive to replace it and was able to restore my system via a Carbonite image.  

My confusion is that when I open "My Computer" and look at drive C:, its size is reported as  919 GB.  However, using the Disk Management tool tells me the following regarding healthy partitions:

78 MB, OEM partition

12.25 GB NTFS Recovery partition, system, active, primary partition

1850.69 GB NTFS OS (C: ) OS partition boot, page file, crash dump, primary partition


So what is actual size of drive C: ?  Is there any way to access the entire 2 TB of disk space?

(By the way, I am using Windows 7 Home Premium on a Dell XPS computer.)

I'm looking for zipping tools that could create zips with password
for OS/400 R7  platform so that sensitive data in files are encrypted
& when we sftp over to Windows/Unix, the encrypted zipfiles are
sent over : for PCI-DSS compliance, we want data at rest to be
encrypted both at AS400 & the Windows/Unix ends.

Ideally the zipping tool can be called by RPG & Cobol

In Unix, we can 'pipe' data stream directly into a zip; would be good
to have this feature for the AS400 tool.  

Also, we have tons of logs (eg: audit trails) taking up valuable space
in AS400 so this zipping can hopefully reduce the size of these

Windows 7 Ultimate
NTFS Boot C:\ Drive
Desktop Machine, 5.25 Inch HDD, 500 GB

BACKGROUND
Originally, I formatted the drive with two partitions of about 250 GB each.
One of the partitions is bootable with the OS on it. The other partition was for data only.

I used:  Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management
to Remove the Data Partition.

Then I tried to Extend Volume on the Boot partition to include the now empty data partition, but there is a message saying the space is limited.
You can only extend the volume to the available space shown below because your disk cannot be converted to dynamic or the volume being extended is a boot or system volume.
The space shown is only 250 GB total. So no extension is possible using Win 7 Disk Management.

QUESTION
I need to extend the boot partition to include the space just released by the other partition. The total space of the boot partition needs to be 500 GB, the full size of the disk (except for the "Reserved System" space of about 100 MB.) Is there a tool that makes this possible?

NOTE
I will be using Clone Zilla to clone this hard drive as I have done in the past. Not sure if there is a way to extend the size of the boot partition using that tool. I do not want to clone the disk 1::1 at the moment until this is resolved.

Hello everyone,
I'm looking for an easier way to connect to my HP ProCurve switches for monitoring and configuring via my workstation.
I know I can take a laptop and connect to each one to set a static IP and get SNMP enabled, but I'm looking for a more efficient way to accomplish these tasks.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

As the title mentions, Realtek HD Audio Manager is consistently muting my headphones for some reason. I have tried using the microphone/headset on other devices and it works perfectly fine. But when I plug the headphones in, it works for the first few seconds then mutes. I have to manually go on the application and un-mute the microphone device in order for people to hear me online.

Hello,

I just received a Lenovo TS140 (70A4003AUX), with firmware FBKTB7AUS, Date: 9/16/2015, and when booting, and pressing F10 to get into the onboard Lenovo Diagnostics, is not working.  Past TS140's have always had this option.  Does anyone know if Lenovo has removed that feature at some point?

Thanks!

Hi Experts,

I'm looking to see which files were placed today (or last few days) on a network drive, since they can be in different folders/sub folders, how can I get such a list?

PS. If I can see which user created them that would be great..

How to find and eliminate duplicate files on your Windows systems.
Finding and deleting duplicate (picture) files can be a time consuming task. My wife and I, our three kids and their families all share one dilemma: Managing our pictures. Between desktops, laptops, phones, tablets, and cameras; over the last decade or two, we've accumulated and shared many 10s of thousands of pictures. And in an effort to begin managing them, it seemed that finding and deleting duplicates was a pretty good start. Easier said than done.

About 8 or 9 years ago, I wrote a program that enumerated all files of a type (extension) in any drive (or folder). Once all the file names are "listed", I added a section to then get an MD5 hash of each file. As each file is hashed, it writes 4 pieces of data to a tab (or comma) delimited text file:
32h byte hash,  file size,  file name,  full file name.

1. Select Drive

When you run DupeFF.exe, all available drive letters will be listed down the left side - choose one.

2. Select a Folder

You can search entire drives, or select a specific folder. Whatever you select will be searched entirely including all sub-folders.

3. Select a File Type

You can search for any file type. If you want to select ALL files (all types),
click the last type "*" listed. Or select any other type by entering the extension where the "*" is. To select any excel spreadsheet type, enter "xl*" (it will find xls, xlsm, xlsb, etc.)

4. Click the #4 Enumerate File List button

People,

I’d like to know what’s your suggestion and comments regarding implementing SCCM and SCOM 2016 in the existing multi-site Data Centre environment for my environment below?
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-platform/system-center-solutions

Because at the moment, my current IT environment is spread across three different cities in

Site1: 2 Data Center, 2 site offices [250 workstation users, 45 physical servers, 89 VMs]
Site2: 1 Data Center, 2 site offices [100 workstation users, 30 physical servers, 100 VMs]
Site3: 1 site offices [90 workstation users, 15 physical servers]

Most of them running Windows and VMware:
Server: Windows Server 2003, 2008 R2 up to 2012 R2 and few Linux servers.
Workstation: Windows 7 and Windows 10 and few MacOSX
Mobile device: Apple iOS and Android
Network device: Cisco routers, ASA & switches, HP switches and PaloAlto Firewall

At the moment I’m using multiple monitoring tools & software to achieve multiple things:

Workstation: LANSweeper
Server Monitoring: Solarwinds IPMonitor
Network Monitoring: PRTG
Server and Network Trending & Capacity planning: Zabbix [this is the only reason I use it and for capacity planning as well]

Can SCCM and SCOM version 2016 be implemented to replace those multiple old monitoring software above?

What are your challenges or cons when using SCCM/SCOM?

Thanks in advance

So previously I had an issue where I could not install from WDS because my boot image did not contain the correct drivers and it kept complaining about not being able to see the DHCP server.  That has since been resolved after downloading a 3rd party driver from the Realtek website for my LAN.

Now I have an issue, where after installing and image from WDS, the setup get to where you specify the country or origin, keyboard etc, then a username, then password, then license acceptance, then time date and region, then I skip the Wifi AP section and then to the screen where it says finalizing your settings.  It stays here about 3mins or so then restarts and goes right to the beginning where you have to specify language and keyboard input etc.

This is driving me nuts.  If anyone can tell me as to why this is happening I would greatly appreciate it.

MY OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and I use Office 2016 and the Edge.  I think the Edge has accomulated a few additional Add Ins that I am not aware of.  How do I find out, the steps, to see what are the Add Ins that I have installed in the Edge.  And what are the basic Add Ins that are necessary for the efficient functioning of the Edge.
Thank u.

Hi folks,
I need to capture the security event logs on a Windows server and copy them to a remote file server on the same network. This needs to happen in real-time without user intervention. I was planning on running a scheduled task on either the file server destination or on the source server itself. Can anyone recommend a tool for accomplishing this task. One of the requirements by upper management is that it must be a free solution. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Using WINZIP 21

Is there a command line function that will output all filenames contained in a ZIP file, including their path, to screen? I use WINZIP to back up a particular directory tree daily. Recently, the ZIP file size increased by apx. 45%, and I do not recall creating any huge files that would account for this discrepancy. Accordingly, being able dump a file list from this week, and from last week (when the file was smaller) would be useful.

Thanks,
Steve

Hello Experts,

People here at work are still reinstalling the OS from scratch with the CD or USB.

The terrible thing after that is reinstalling drivers, Windows Updates, etc... It takes for ever.

In the past I used an imaging software Acronis. I will image a finished workstation with the drivers, the updates and everything else before adding to the Windows domain. Kept the image per type of system in a USB portable hard drive. It sure did made fast and easy imaging a system.
 
So the question is same software or are their other similar solutions that are better?

Thank you!

Just asking this as a quick sanity check - I just spun up a new 2012 R2 physical server with 64 GB of RAM.  How much of that ram will be reserved for the system address space?

Thanks
