comment I want to run an rsync command at midnight but make it stop at 8am. How can i schedule the start AND END of a command?
@Judking It's documented in the section PARAMETERS of the bash man page (under "Special Parameters"). It's also explained in chapter 9.1 of the Advanced Bash Scripting Guide (under "Other Special Parameters").

Please do not post link-only answers. They'll become useless if the linked page disappears for some reason.

comment how to enable procmon boot logging for every boot?
@JustinDearing It would still need to hook into the boot sequence, and would still consume CPU cycles for matching and selecting events. And writing events to a log. Boot logging is a kind of debug logging. Don't enable it unless you have something you need to debug.

comment Create new empty directory tree from existing tree with files
This is explained in man rsync (see section "INCLUDE/EXCLUDE PATTERN RULES"). The option -f adds a filter. "+ */" includes all directories, the following "- *" excludes everything else.

comment NTFS hard disk now recognized as 'RAW'
A lost volume can be recovered in-place. Lost files, however, should be recovered to some other volume to avoid inadvertent overwriting of other lost files on the same volume.

comment Best practice when upgrade VisualSVN Server and TortoiseSVN Subversion client
Create a virtual machine, install VisualSVN 1.6.3 and actually test the upgrade path. And yes, you should make a backup before doing a production upgrade.
