comment Do I need to trim my SSD? How?
@alfish - Maybe. Anytime a write occurs to a page that isn't empty, you're going to get some write amplification.

comment Recover data from EC2 instance storage
@MilesErickson - I think Dan is using an Instance Store backed instance, not an EBS backed instance. If he snapshots his instance, will the Instance Store be included? I don't think it will be. Hopefully I'm wrong.

comment Recover data from EC2 instance storage
@TomO'Connor - Let's not get sidetracked over Dan's choice of wording and instead focus on solving the problem. Will your suggested plan of action work for an Instance Store backed instance? Will the Instance Store be included in the snapshot?

Are you using a public AMI? If so, what's the ID?

What problem are you trying to solve that caused you to request extra resources?

comment I was given a cluster that uses PBS but where do I start MySQL?
@Legend: If you can install software on the cluster nodes (got root?) you can try and do it yourself. If nobody submits any PBS jobs to the cluster you might get away with it. If not, hate to say it, but time for another ticket.

Yeah, it's plug 'n chug, but definitely not cheap.

comment If an email bounces back from one recipient have the others received it?
That doesn't mean delivery to the other recipients was successful. It just means that no permanent errors have been reported back to you by the MTA. Yet.

comment Bitlocker error on Win7 (Domain)
Unlike Phillip, I don't have a TPM, so I don't think PCRs apply to my situation. I can run 'manage-bde --status' - it says that the BitLocker Version is None, Conversion Status is Fully Decrypted, Percentage Encrypted is 0%, Protection Status is Protection Off, Lock Status is Unlocked, no Identification Field or Key Protectors. If I try 'manage-bde -on C:' it wants a -StartupKey arg.

comment Bitlocker error on Win7 (Domain)
I'm getting the same error on Win7 Ultimate 64-bit (no domain). I don't have a TPM, but a little policy editing got me over that hurdle. I actually got into the Bitlocker setup once, but hit 'Cancel' and have been getting this error message ever since.

Actually, you can enable Bitlocker without a TPM: sevenforums.com/tutorials/…

If you were doing Closed Loop Confirmed Opt In, you wouldn't have any subscribers with invalid email addresses.
