Note: I’ve seen this post about writing scripts using SubInAcl but was trying to find a way to use a group policy without a script.

However, when attempting to perform a deletion of a folder with many subfolders/files, or uploading many individual files, or modifying many […]

Is it appropriate to run Hyper-V Server on each desktop PC?

I am currently designing a rollout of Windows 7 to a shop of approximately 80-100 desks. The office is a flat network without routing between servers and desktops. There are a few Windows Server 2008 R2 servers running a 2008 domain. Most of the workstations are newer machines that were installed with Vista or XP for program compatibility reasons. The compatibility issue has been resolved and the client is ready to move to Windows 7 […]
