comment Why is the Windows 8 recycle bin using more space than it is allocated?
@pabouk: . . .to 10000 MB for the main user of this computer, and disabled the recycle bin for the other user, and refreshed the folder in WinDirStat, but it still takes 26 GB of space. I see no "delete" here.

comment In Windows 7, is it possible to do “runas” administrator *without* using the GUI?
This isn't a dupe. The OP is asking for how to spawn a process as an admin. The Win32 term is "elevate". Runas simply spawns a process as a different user. Just like Linux, not all processes have "admin" permissions even though your user credentials have admin permissions.

Step. 1) Create an install program that fires up a command prompt, which will have the same permissions as the installer. Step 2) ... Step 3) Profit.

comment How to remove obsolete users from ACLs and other unneeded data from an NTFS drive?
I wouldn't worry about performance. It's a B tree and it's unlikely to improve performance.

I second Doktoro's comment. Even better would be use post the results of Sysinternal's Rammap.

comment Windows 7 Home Premium transparently cache Synology NAS
I'd be curious if there are any solutions already out there. If there are, they would take a pretty darn good programmer. The way Windows currently does this with another Windows box is do "change notifications" by looking at the USN journal on the NAS side.

comment What info can I get about mail server from email address?
All you can assume is what's in the DNS record. You really have no idea what "server" that DNS record will redirect you to.
