Broke my head on a problem with a customer.
Everytime when he tried to search on OWA he got:

“The action couldn’t be completed. Please try again.”

Submitted by Tom L'Ecluse on Sat, 29/12/2012 - 17:45

Had a Windows Small Business server 2012 which was short of memory. I saw that the internal database had more than 2Gb of ram (Of the 8Gb total) and the internal database was used for SharePoint (Which they don't use) and the WSUS server.

I've had a customer who had a problem with his Dell Xps 1640. Suddenly the sound wasn't working anymore. The headphones worked fine. My first guess was that this was a hardware problem but after some further investigation I've found that this is a bug!

Activate Express Cache, iSSD.

I've recently bought the Asus ZENBOOK UX32VD and had to install a Samsung 7 series for a customer.

Both laptops comes default with an express cache or iSSD. I am a firm believer of reinstalling a laptop from scratch to remove all the bloat ware. One of the mistakes that I've made is to format the express cache or iSSD. And so the cache wouldn't work.

Imap for Telenet mailbox.

Submitted by Tom L'Ecluse on Wed, 25/07/2012 - 15:13

I had a customer who went from Belgacom to Telenet because Belgacom could just have ADSL 2Mb in the region that he lives (He lives in the middle of nowhere). So he made the step to Telenet.

One of the requirements was that he could read / write e-mail on his laptop, ipad and iphone. This looked like a very easy task but there was a hiccup. When I followed there guide to use IMAP on the Telenet mailbox it wouldn't work.

Super slow opening my downloads folder

Submitted by Tom L'Ecluse on Mon, 23/07/2012 - 17:04

Recently I've noticed that opening my downloads folder would take a lot of time. 10 or more seconds but I use fast SSD on all my pc's so 10 seconds was long.

Even deleting the big stuff out of my download folder didn't change that. All the downloads were http download no p2p download / uploads so p2p wasn't the problem.
