while too brief to be a good answer here, the 96pdi point can be vital. see howto-outlook.com/faq/unsharpimages.htm for more.

comment Does storage capacity affect hard drive performance?
In servers and RAID configurations more platters means more performance, because the read/write jobs can be split into pieces and done concurrently across many heads and platters at once. (I know the Q is about single drives and desktops, I just wanted to head off the "lower platters == better" meme before it got too far)

comment Why do I only get 300-400 Mbit/s on my 1000 Mbit/s network?
this makes me wonder if iperf isn't the only part of Windows that defaults to a smaller packet size than Linux, see superuser.com/a/95587/16966

comment Disable Windows 7's “Open File - Security Warning” dialog for exe on network drive?
Something may have changed (April 2014). The dialog won't let me add a drive letter, e.g. X:\ and X: and file://X: all result in "you have entered an invalid wildcard sequence" (screenshot: i.imgur.com/um529J4.png) (Win7 Home Premium x64)

comment Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?
@barlop, ok. I see I don't understand the nature of your complaint, and don't know how else to attempt to address it.

explicate the purpose of elevate, working with UAC, not bypassing it

comment Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?
@barlop: elevate's purpose isn't to work around or bypass UAC (User Account Control), but to work with it. As long as UAC is enabled there has to be some kind of prompt at some point in the process. If you need to get rid of prompting altogether you have to disable UAC (see 2nd comment). The problem elevate solves is escalating a particular process from a non-privileged shell, and then carrying on as normal. Without this you need to start a privileged command prompt with right-click "Run as Administrator", which can't be scripted, before attempting the privileged command.

comment Move the Public folders on Windows 7
nice bit of archaeological work resurrecting the threads! While closely related they're not quite on topic, which is moving the public folder, not the users folder.
