Microsoft Surface 3’s for some reason don’t support mounting USB Flash drives mounted as NTFS from its UEFI/BIOS and have to be FAT32. Either reformat the USB flash drive as Fat32 and copy back the image (Windows Command Line currently only supports FAT32 to NTFS conversion, not the other way around), third party software needs […]
Credit: A Video from Linus Tech Tips reminded me of a way to stop Windows 7/10 from automounting drives If you have an issue with a hard drive (That is spinning up, doesn’t sound like its head is craching/clicking and a SMART tool like CrystalDiskInfo Standard edition shows its healthy) that simply appears to hang […]
Georgia Telnet can restrict the number of users that connect to Telnet or SSH. I am lazy so I tend to generate a list based off our user logon scripts folders, however I do of course take a backup and test it afterwards.
echo Change to the drive where your Georgia logon scripts are located
echo Change to the folder to where your Georgia logon scripts are located
echo Get the dir command to write out a simple list of directories into a file called dir.txt
dir /B /A:D >dir.txt
echo add a 1 to end of each row and copy the list into the file GS_L_User.txt located normally a directory above the user script folders.
echo It takes place straight away

Credit: ServerFault Credit: Craig Tolley I came across the need to create a shortcut to a non existent file share (Where a wireless network had a different ip range on a different site). I thought Windows would let shortcuts for SMB shares be created if they didn’t exist, but Windows 10 insisted the share had […]
A plugin which isn’t in the Word Press list of available plugins is one I find very handy from Benjamin Uzelac. It disables Word Press from allowing the browser to save the username and password and that’s it. Its good for complying with the usual website tests, which flag saving a username and password as […]
Credit: Joe Stefanelli on Stack Overflow I wanted a simple way to find triggers on a specific database, Joe Stefanelli posted SQL which did exactly what I wanted.
sysobjects.name AS trigger_name
,USER_NAME(sysobjects.uid) AS trigger_owner
,s.name AS table_schema
,OBJECT_NAME(parent_obj) AS table_name
,OBJECTPROPERTY( id, 'ExecIsUpdateTrigger') AS isupdate
,OBJECTPROPERTY( id, 'ExecIsDeleteTrigger') AS isdelete
,OBJECTPROPERTY( id, 'ExecIsInsertTrigger') AS isinsert
,OBJECTPROPERTY( id, 'ExecIsAfterTrigger') AS isafter
,OBJECTPROPERTY( id, 'ExecIsInsteadOfTrigger') AS isinsteadof
,OBJECTPROPERTY(id, 'ExecIsTriggerDisabled') AS [disabled]
INNER JOIN sysusers
ON sysobjects.uid = sysusers.uid
INNER JOIN sys.tables t
ON sysobjects.parent_obj = t.object_id
INNER JOIN sys.schemas s
ON t.schema_id = s.schema_id
WHERE sysobjects.type = 'TR'
Credit: Waseemulla S on Microsoft Answers I had a USB device that I could not unload, I prefer the old dialog box anyway and found it is still possible to show this box in Windows 10. The forum post above has the answer, however according to someone was a very poor answer. For me the […]
We encountered an issue during a migration to Windows 10 where I had missed a program which had hard coded links, these no longer worked due to Microsoft Access being a newer version. I generated a simple script so we could change the hard coded links to allow it to select the correct version, all […]
I needed to generate a list of folders and their subfolders, I used a simple command for dir command and slapped into a text file. Below replaced with the folder you want to get the list from (i.e C:\Users\Default) and replace with where you want to save a textfile (i.e C:\textfile.txt).
dir /b /s /a:d "<Location>\*" > <TextFile>
Credit: Basit’s SQL Server Tips The following is very handy to check for any unused index’s on a MSSQL database, this should only be run once the database has been up for at least a week or when all scheculed jobs have been allowed to run at least once. The only change I made is […]
