comment Filename too long - IMPOSSIBLE to delete/move/rename
Hi, Adam. The -f options tells rm it can remove read-only files and directories, just like on Unix or Linux. But Windows files and directories can also be marked as Hidden and System. You can see these attributes with ls -l or just ll. Hidden files can be removed with -H. System files can be removed with -S. If you don't care what it is, just remove it, use -x. If this doesn't solve your problem, please ping me again. (I check email constantly, here, not so regularly.)

comment Active Directory : Two accounts same password
I should clarify that even if the disclosure that a password was already in use was accidental (two users both happened to want it and the first one got it), you still wouldn't want that information disclosed.

comment Active Directory : Two accounts same password
It would be a security hole if you could discover other passwords already in use by others simply by trying to change your own password and getting denied because someone else has used it.You can't so easily limit repeated password changes the way you can with failed login attempts, where you deliberately slow it down to make brute force attacks difficult because they simply take too long.
