Deny Folder Renaming

This folder is meant for users to copy, and then rename their newly created copy. What I do not want is a user renaming my template folder. Thus, I want to deny the permission to rename the folder. It was my understanding that to deny renaming you simply had to deny […]

SBS 2011 – Is Store.exe High Memory Usage Normal?

We have a SBS 2011 server with 16GB memory that runs Exchange, WSUS and File Sharing for approx 20 users. The server also gives 2GB memory to a virtual machine running in Hyper-V so 14GB left for the rest. When the server first boots Store.exe consumes about 500MB memory, WSUS and IIS consume some as well, but we generally are only at 60% capacity. During the course of the working day Store.exe consumes 8GB memory […]

Exchange mailbox default folders not in english

When I add new mailbox to Exchange 2010 (SBS 2011), for some reason default folders are in localized language, instead of English. Funny thing is that when we add mailboxes by adding a new user, folders are in English as they should be. How to get default folders in English (in the first place), and how to rename or update these current folders? Is there a catch to do this from EMS? Thanks Asked by […]

If you must use a script, You should craft a single script that uses variables and a sane folder structure on the share. For example, if […]
