comment I deployed Flash Player via a Software Installation policy. How to upgrade?
@fyrye - I stopped using the MSI-based Flash distributions several years ago because they've been so bad. I opted to use a script to msizap the failed installations away.

comment How to find the creation date of a local user account?
-1 - That shows you when the profile directory was created. That doesn't tell you when the account was created since the profile directory could be deleted and re-created at any time after the account was created.

comment To serve SSL, does the web server need outbound internet access?
@samsmith - For serving TLS/SSL, no. It's not going to go out and grab CRLs, certificates, etc. (Acting as a TLS/SSL client is a different story.)

comment Mirroring harddisk with compressed files with Robocopy
@BlueCompute - I'd just copy the compressed files first using robocopy with the /ia command-line argument, run a for loop to compact all the files in the destination directory, then run a second robocopy with the /xa argument to copy the non-compressed files. That leaves the job of detecting which files are compressed to robocopy. This is still sub-optimal because it results in decompression and recompression of the files, but I'm not sure that NTFS gives robocopy any way to copy the file in the compressed state anyway.
