comment Recovering a Hyper-V vhd from a snapshot
@Jason Berg Did you mean to say, "Browse to the OLDEST VHD in the chain"... as opposed to the youngest? The youngest is not a differencing disk and therefore will not give you the option to "reconnect".

comment Command line backup of running Hyper-V images using Volume Shadow Copies (VSS) and Diskshadow.exe
Do you only need to really copy the VHD and AVHD files?

Nice answer. Just one minor change, the arguments need to be single quotes.

comment Powershell - Create folders and shares from a CSV
This seems to me like a very legitimate question. Not sure why it was downvoted.

comment Files listed on WinShock (KB2992611) what do the different file sizes for the same file name mean?
I don't know, but the lsass.exe executable on all my webfarm servers have been hitting high CPU since this KB2992611 patch. It's really bad.

comment Why would IIS use two different PHP installs?
Just curious, try running a "pear config-get" instead of "pear config-show"

comment Why would IIS use two different PHP installs?
It's possible that a subfolder on the website contains a Handler Mapping pointing to the old version, where the top level website points to the correct one. If this is not running at the top level, check each folder's IIS Handler Mapping settings. Just in case, you can also check each folder manually for a web.config file, which is where specific folder settings are stored. Make sure there isn't a <handlers> element in there somewhere.

comment Wearing an SSD out with Zero Byte Files
@MichaelHampton It's a very highly available application with clustered servers to take over should one fail, so we never use RAM to store state information. The other option would be to use a database. Again, that involves code changes that I'll have to get through red tape. In the meantime, I'm just looking to see if my math calculations above are correct.

The Samsung Pro is MLC, a bit better than consumer grade TLC, but not as tough as the enterprise SLC. Of course there would be a mirror... which would then replicate to a second server through DFSR housing on another mirrored pair.

comment Wearing an SSD out with Zero Byte Files
@mdpc That would be ideal, and the code for checking and updating the timestamp is contained in one centralized function, so that would be possible. Though, I'm still considering the SSD option until I would have time to add and test the code for that.

@ewwhite This will hosted on an SSD directly attached on a Windows server, so most likely NTFS will be the file system.

@mdpc I was considering 8k for the inode update. Is there more than that?
