comment Purge print driver cache on windows 7 with powershell script
I'd like a solution that doesn't require a reboot which is difficult to do in the middle of the day. While it is trivial to perform the action after work hours, I'd like to find a better way.

comment Purge print driver cache on windows 7 with powershell script
I do have a scripting solution since it is easy to perform the workaround. I was hoping for something that didn't rely on a delete file command. What I am looking for is a different way of clearing the print drivers. Preferably one that can allow the print spooler service to remain on. Since it locks the affected files, you can't delete them with file explorer unless you restart the computer to release the files.

comment “CREATOR OWNER” NTFS group always has special permissions in windows
With both your and @JamesRyan explaining this, I now understand what is going on: The basic GUI will only show permissions that apply to "this folder, subfolder, and files". Since CREATOR OWNER can't apply to an actual object, it will always be a special permission since it can't apply to "this folder".

comment Advantages of running print services on Server 2008 R2?
+1 for your analysis of when to use a Hyper-V. My guess is that it would be a waste of license in this case.

comment Batch File help needed for PsList/PsKill when a process is over a specific age (elapsed time)
You can do this in a batch file, but you have to use the "dreaded" FOR loop to parse out the data you don't want. I recommend that you use powershell since it is so much more powerful.If you used a batch file, your code would look something like: FOR /F "tokens=8" %%A in (pslist) DO {

@TomO'Connor - So you're basically saying is to keep folder redirection and use offline files to keep everything synced? The link above talks about using BranchCache which seems to be more about caching files from a central data center on servers at remote sites. I don't think it applies to the situation I am in.
