  2. Chkdsk /Scan Has a Bug

    The traditional read only chkdsk is finding errors and then recommends running the new chkdsk /scan function. When I run the new /scan function it says there is no problems. Which is it? Details can be found on this Technet post.

  3. Work Folders Group Policy

    Work Folders has the scheduled task Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\Work Folders\Work Folders Maintenance Work. I need to set this task to run hourly via task scheduler for all users. I was looking for a way to do this via group policy. I know there is a tasks option under GP preferences, but I can not find a way to incorporate this built in task to the GPO. It would be nice to have an admx template or something to be able to push a setting to all computers to run this task on a set schedule instead of just on logon.

  4. How about we implement Disk Quotas, not just on individual user accounts but Security Groups within Active directory

    Within the File Server Resource Manager, we should be able to implement a quota on a file path for a Security Group of Users instead of Individual users,

  5. Get volume type to differentiate which is local disk, clustered disk, or network share,etc.

    From Windows Explorer, besides every volume letters, we have the volume (network location) Type: Local Disk / CD Drive / Clustered Disk / Network Drive. Would like to have a simple powershell command get it.

  6. File Server Resource Manager

    Hi

    Looks like there is a bug in the File Server Resource Manager modules.

    Windows 2012 R2 - fully patched march 2016

    When creating a new FSRMFileScreenTemplate, it defaults to active instead of passive, and I can't change it to passive.
    Example:
    New-FsrmFileScreenTemplate -name test -IncludeGroup test -Notification test
    This results in an active template. The command has an -active switch - which cannot be set to $false, but no -passive switch.
    Setting the property afterwards to $false doesn't change it in the GUI - it is still active.

    Had to use the old filescrn.exe utility to set the template…

  7. Work Folders Client side awareness of Quota and FSRM

    Currently if we enable quota for Work Folders the client side UI will still all available space on the server.
    It would be good if the client is aware of the quota and can display space available based on quota value and perhaps even UI warning/information based on space available.

    If FSRM have file screening available and you add a file that is not allowed then you will only see a access denied when syncing.
    It would be good if the client could understand the settings and inform the user when file is added or at least better information from…

  8. Work Folders Hardening

    Currently Work Folders allows us to Encrypt data on the client device. This is a nice feature, the data within the Work Folder on the client device is encrypted. However, at any point in time, a user can Right Click their Work folder and "Remove Enterprise Control" at which point data is unencrypted. Also, at any point in time a user can open the properties of a file and choose to remove encryption. We do not want users to be able to remove encryption, if we chose to encrypt the contents of the work folders it should remain encrypted. This…

  10. Multi-Tenancy for Service Providers

    Work Folders really provides a great enterprise like scalability at the same time addressing requirements from any customer segments. Many service providers are interested in developing solutions around WorkFolders where they can serve multiple tenants from their Datacenters. However, more guidance is required on how to manage multi-tenancy, challenges, sync issues in low bandwidth scenarios, and any other guidance will be extremely helpful. With storage costs declining, Hosters and Service Providers are eager to provide these services to customers thereby reducing capital expenses for their customers

  12. Expand Basic volume to the begin

    The expand of a partition on a basic volume (expand to the end of disk, expand to rigth) is a fine thing. But we need in some cases an expand to the begin off the Basic volume (expand to left).
    The possible way convert the Basic volume to a dynamic volume and then consolditate/merge first part of volume (from begin of disk to the begin of the second partition) changed the Basic volume permanent to a dynamic volume (not our favorite).

    It should be possible (and simple?) expand a partition to the left side
    Please do it!

    Example.

  14. Storage Spaces - Make Slabs exposed in GUI/Posh Tool

    It would be great to expose where slabs are physically located. It would be great to see where the data actually is (Write-Back cache, data slabs).
    This would be really useful to know where is the performance bottleneck, to investigate misconfigurations..
    Something like described here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2012/01/05/virtualizing-storage-for-scale-resiliency-and-efficiency.aspx

  15. disk error ID7 on a storage server, help us find the disk....

    At the moment we have to delve in the registry and understand how SCSI enumerates devices. What a mess.
    Somehow we need to be able to easily link the harddisk mentioned in the event log with a real disk that needs to be changed. (put the serial number in the event log?)

  17. IOP's - u need 2 look @ this in more details

    Windows-Feedback:?contextid=67&feedbackid=a770e43b-c1b3-4792-b825-78eada1921f0&form=1&src=2

    Microsoft is not taking this iop's this seriously, and most of the time it's pointed out that windows is the problem, but windows was never written for this kind of scenario, yet Microsoft have not step up to address this problem, they just depend on others to find solution to this problem.

  19. Support Reallocation of VHDs on Storage Spaces

    The struggle is real, my friends. When you have a storage space with 4 disks and create a new virtual disk with parity over all those 4 physical disks, the data is spread out as you'd expect. But if you run low on space and you add another disk, the data already on the vhd cant benefit from the new disk. You have to create a new virtual disk and copy the data from the old to the new one. The problem is described here:

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2013/12/18/cannot-extend-simple-virtual-disk-in-windows-server-2012-r2.aspx

    So please let us edit a virutal disk and add more physical disk the…
