Where are the Folder Options in Windows 2008?

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

For whatever reason, I can never remember where the Folder Options tabs are located in Windows 2008.  Adding a note here for future reference.  The same applies for Windows 7.

Go to Control Panel / Folder Options


iPod Classic Adventures

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Every couple of months, my daughter comes home with some new challenge for me to resolve with her iPod Classic.  I thought resetting the iPod would solve just about anything she could possibly do to inhibit the normal function of the device.  That is until she decided to set a passcode and promptly forgot what she set it to.  I quickly discovered there is no relying on the old “Reset” method.

Fortunately, a quick search of “ipod classic forgot passcode” on Google yields a YouTube video to solve the problem. The instructions are simple to follow and gave me a little insight on how Apple went about locking the device.

This post is a little out of the norm from my prior postings, but  I am sure I will reference this again in due time.  I am thankful for Google, YouTube, and the person responsible for posting “Unlocking Ipod Classic (Without Having to Restore To Factory Settings)”.


RTO and RPO

Monday, October 14, 2013

What is the difference between Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO)?  That was a question that came up recently in a disaster recovery discussion.  Good explanation provided by Dejan Kosutic’s Blog entry.

In summary:

  • Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is “target time set for resumption of product, service or activity delivery after an incident”.
  • Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is “the maximum tolerable period in which data might be lost”.
