@Nitz By seeing what your data looks like a day after compaction. That will give you your low-water mark.

comment Can the Dell PowerEdge T320 boot from a USB stick in hard drive emulation mode?
@kasperd Actually it does answer the question, it proposes not using USB but using a LiveCD instead. This counts as 'some other way'.

comment Mail Filtering - MS Exchange
@user218674 As it happens, Exchange does have those for server-defined lists. Outlook, the preferred client for Exchange, has a host of client-defined filters that can be used.

comment one fast VM on many slow hosts?
Application-specific solutions like these are far easier to create than doing it with an actual operating-system. And it is OS that the original questioner was asking about 4 years ago.

comment Bad idea to jump two versions in a server OS upgrade?
@Neil This is what's called an educational experience. It's likely the effort to get a new instance on 2003 working at all will be 80% of the effort needed to deploy a fresh install on a fresh 2012.

comment Allowing unpermitted group to access share - Windows 7
Think of SHARE permissions as a rights mask: specified users/groups will never have more than these permissions no matter what the filesystem permissions say. If someone has Full Control on a folder, but the Share permissions are set to read-only, they'll only get read-only rights to that folder.
