Script recipe: How to increase the maximum number of quotas in the FSRM Quota Report (W2K3 R2)

Fri, 18 Sep 2009 18:45:00 +0000

One of the customer requests we had on Windows Server 2003 R2 was the ability to increase the maximum number of quotas in the FSRM Quota report. The current limit is 1000 quotas maximum. How do I set this limit to 20,000 for example? Here is how - assuming that you have Powershell 1.0 installed,...

Statcounter: Bing leapfrogs Yahoo again

Sat, 27 Jun 2009 04:00:24 +0000

You might remember as the site that came in the news a few weeks ago when Bing overtook Yahoo, due to the sudden interest immediately after launch. Back then, as many predicted, it didn’t last long, as people quickly switched back to their old search habits. But I just checked the Statcounter site and noticed...

Thu, 25 Jun 2009 01:29:00 +0000

Check it out: Nice layout & content organization. Much better organized when comparing it with the typical forums/community sites that you see on Microsoft sites or MSDN (or other non-Microsoft ones)

FCI – how to use classification (video)

Just found a new video demonstrating the new classification feature in Windows Server 2008 R2. Enjoy! Special thanks to dawho1 who posted the video.

What does Bing stands for?

Thu, 28 May 2009 13:21:49 +0000

In my personal opinion, BING = Bing Is Not Google (to continue the tradition of recursive acronyms) And it’s true. Bing attempts to be a decision engine, not just another search engine. It is interesting that Google itself has an “I’m feeling Lucky” button, but using it simply means that you let the search engine...

Script of the week: how to expire files with Classification

Fri, 15 May 2009 14:06:00 +0000

It is an eye opening experience to sit at our FCI booth and see customer after customer telling us their biggest problem with managing file servers today: lots of old data sitting on their file servers. When I tell them how that our classification feature solves this problem, it something that always brings a sincere...

The buzz around Classification is going up!

Thu, 14 May 2009 19:16:00 +0000

More and more posts appear on File Classification - it's hard to keep track of them. Here is a few sample (if I missed anyone, sorry - it s not intentional) Coded Style has a post on titled Getting Personal with Windows Server 2008 R2 File Classification in which he notes the particular attention that FCI...

Classification – under the hood (part 1)

Thu, 14 May 2009 02:58:50 +0000

As promised, I will add more technical information about File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) in a series of technical posts devoted to FCI architecture and internals. We started the classification project with an ambitious vision: to provide a simple, open and comprehensive way to organize data at enterprise level, primarily for files stored on shares. The...

File Classification Infrastructure – launched today!

Mon, 11 May 2009 16:11:25 +0000

Today it is an exciting day for all of us – we just announced our new classification platform at TechEd! It is a culmination of many months of team work, mostly in secret until now (which also explains also the silence on this blog). For an overview of FCI (the File Classification Infrastructure) in Windows...
