A customer of mine has a malware infested Windows 10 OS and would like me to reload the Win 10 OS so that all applications and data that are currently installed will remain in place.

How can this be done?

I have removed virus infected hard drives from Windows 10 laptops and have connected them as secondary hard drives to another Windows 10 desktop.

 The malware, spyware, adware, and viruses have been removed from these previously infected Win 10 hard drives. Now when these hard drives are scanned there are no threats detected.

Please provide me with the instructions for using AutoRuns.exe to analyze the startup items for these offline Windows 10 hard drives.

 What is the correct syntax for running the SFC command to repair the Windows 10 operating system on these slaved Windows 10 hard drives? I would like to make sure that any additional OS damage or corruption is also repaired.

 When I run the SFC command within a Windows 10 OS I use the following syntax:

 SFC /scannow

 Please provide me with the correct syntax for running the SFC command within Windows 10 for Windows 10 hard drives that are connected as secondary drives.

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

SYSTEM
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,

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..

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

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!

The Percona Live Open Source Database Conference Europe 2017 is the premier event for the diverse and active European open source database community, as well as businesses that develop and use open source database software.

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

Q1:
As we don't plan to get winzip licences , I was told by our End user support
team that password protected zip files can't be unzipped by Windows 7
(Profesnl) itself.  Is this true?   Zip files without password can still be unzipped.

Q2:
Is there any opensource command line zipping tool for Win 7 (both 32 &
64 bit) that could unzip a password protected file?  if so, provide a sample
command of this tool to unzip with a password

Hi Experts,

As seen attached, I have a backup script that performs daily backup, however would only like to keep files that were modified and have different size from previous file, as seen attached.

Therefore would like to have a script that loops for all files in given folder in order of name/date modified, reads the size and if its  the same as previous file deletes it.
