What’s New in Windows Server 2012, Episode 15: Group Policy Enhancements

What’s New in Windows Server 2012, Episode 14: Data Deduplication and Optimization


In this episode I will cover the new data optimization and deduplication features of Windows Server 2012, how to turn it on, enable a volume, and manage it. Special thanks to my good friend and colleague Brent Caskey for the details and the lab itself! Enjoy!

Changing SkyDrive Folder but Unlink is Greyed Out


If you’ve tried to move a SkyDrive older but you’ve noticed that the "Unlink SkyDrive" button is greyed out, and also seen the message that "This option is unavailable because you’re signed in on this PC with a Microsoft account. If you want to use a different account with SkyDrive, sign in on this PC with a different Microsoft account or add an account on this PC with the email address you want to use." (which is a very verbose but still not relevant message to your situation) you’ll want to follow the steps in this video. I also cover linked accounts, Microsoft accounts, local accounts, and domain connected accounts in this episode. So for a short episode, this one is pretty packed.
