comment Accessing EFS-encrypted files after resetting Windows password
@JamieHanrahan - This might warrant a separate question but it is only a slight expansion to the original question above: If after the password was reset by 3rd party tools as above, the original password was found (remembered), would logging in (using the "reset" password) and changing the password back to the original password allow access to the EFS-encrypted files?

comment “No Instance(s) Available” error with the wmic command
... wmic datafile get /? That was it. Thanks again. I was trying wmic datafile where /?, which doesn't return anything very useful.

comment “No Instance(s) Available” error with the wmic command
I tried wmic datafile where name="C:\\Windows\\system32\\notepad.exe" get CreationDate (and even wmic datafile where name="C:notepad.exe" get CreationDate) and well... they work ! (you knew they would). I am sure I tried that before when it was failing, but I probably had something else wrong with the command syntax at the time. Thanks for your help. Do you have a link to info about valid keywords (name, path, ...) for the WHERE clause with DATAFILE?

comment “No Instance(s) Available” error with the wmic command
@Ramhound - That article talks about "Windows Server 2008 R2 configured with failover clustering". I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, so although it is the same error message, I don't think it applies to me. The file is on a partition on my desktop hard drive. It happens with any file I have tried, even something like C:\Windows\system32\notepad.exe"

comment Windows Command to get all information/properties of a file
@EkoJunaidiSalam - I am getting this "No Instance(s) Available" error with command wmic datafile where name="file.txt" get creationdate. I opened Powershell and typed: Get-HotFix. It returns a list of all HotFixes (updates, service packs, security updates...) that have already been installed. Is there a specific "KB" numbered HotFix that I need?

comment Robocopy, how to log only errors?
Robocopy also has options: /LOG:filename to specify where to write the log file, /LOG+:filename to append to an existing log file, and /TEE to write the log to a file while also displaying it to the screen.

comment Is there any danger when connecting a USB Y cable?
I'm not sure how these things (Y-cable) are wired, but if the first "A" plug had only Data (and Ground) wires connected (Power pin not connected), and the second "A" plug had only Power and Ground connected (Data pins not connected), it seems it could not cause these problems.

It's worth noting that this script is for use with Windows Powershell.
