[SOLVED] windows 7 as a file server?

Q: [SOLVED] windows 7 as a file server?

We are in the process of updating our work computers and are looking at updating our file server. We currently use windows 98 (dont laugh!) soley because it allows everyone in our small office to access it as a file server. My question is how many users can access Windows 7? I looked online briefly, but couldnt find the answer. The only thing we use that computer for is a file server. We are connected to the internet and printers using another server that is accessible to the entire office. The box I am questioning about is only accessed by the 7 people in the engineering office.
Would we be better served by Windows Home Server instead?

EDIT: I looked into Home Server a little more, and it only makes sense to use it. All the functionality we need and more, for a cheaper price.

Okay I want to go over pros and cons of some of the things that my boss wants done.

First off let me explain what we have. Users are on a domain system. Both laptop and desktop users. No users have admin rights.

Now let me explain what we want to do. We want a backup of their My Documents (and possibly other directories in the future) but we want it to be as invisible to them as possible.

I looked into the Folder redirection GPO and has a good pro - Simple to impelment (I did a test on my own PC did it in about 5 minutes) cons - in order to allow laptops to work they would have to have offline folders enabled and synchrnized and worst of all synchrnization won't accept PST's, MDB's and other key files that we would need synchronized as well gives errors in the synching process.

I then thought about a file sync program letting them seemlessly work on their PCs and just sync the files to the file server - Pros Can install a server side client that just polls for connected PC's and copies the files to the repsective places. Cons costs money, usually does not sync in use files making some of the files be missed.

Lastly I considered a batch file to run at login - Pros easier to setup to copy things out. Cons only runs at login so people could leave their PC up for 15 days and have 15 day old software. As well I do not know how to copy only modified files so some people with large files would copy over a ton of data (unless I can find a solution for this).

I have installed FileZilla server 0.9.41 on Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time
of the file uploaded is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hours earlier, and truncates the seconds. This makes version control of files difficult. Is there some configuration
change that can fix this, or is this a Windows Server issue? The server time is configured for the Central time zone in The United States.

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :

Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:


As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

I am looking to build a file server for a little less than $3500. I need a chassis, controller, an array of hard drives, and a backup device. I found some different devices but was wondering if there is a server already with most if not all of these devices:

Areca 1230 RAID card - $730
1GB so-dimm (for cache) - $94
Areca battery backup module - $130
Intel 775 server board - $215

2x1GB ECC DDR2 533 - $195

5x (4 in the array and a hot spare) WD RE 250GB $450

Hitachi 7k80 (system drive, another for RAID1 would be nice as well) - $46 each

DVD drive - $18

Pentium D 805 (dual isnt absolutely necessary, but its very little extra on top of a single core) - $121

SATA DLT4 internal drive (SATA is a bit unusual on tape drives, but it saves the cost of SCSI) - $949

PCP&C 510 - $220

If someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Greetings all,
I'd like to create a file server on my home network (5 XP pro boxes) sharing a broadband cable connection off of a Netgear router, and don't really want to build up yet another box and connect it to the network. My thought is to simply add another hard drive to my fastest (but least used) machine, and share that specific drive across the entire network as a file server. Are there any specific problems with this? Does anyone have a suggestion for making this work or problems I may run into ? This doesn't need to be anything special, just a way to centrally locate digital photos, e-mail attachments, and possibly backups for data.

I am trying to use my database file which is in .mdf format and created on the date 14 July. Whenever i try to use my file in order to restore and update the database, it show the error message of corruption and i can't able to open them.

So i am urgent looking for a reliable solution which help to recover and restore .mdf file of SQL server.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

A:Solved: Recover .mdf file of SQL server

Restore from your last good backups. That's the only reliable solution.
Start by notifying anyone relevant that the data has probably been lost, because that's the likely outcome without backups.
What exactly are you trying to do and what are the error messages (complete messages) that you get?
As Gail said if you have the lastest backup that's the only way to prevent data issues. If you have only a mdf file and no ldf file then you can try rebuilding the ldf fileas shown below
If you have both mdf and ldf file and they are not attaching then you need to give an error message so that somebody can help you.

I have a wave file that is about 1 hour long. I then converted it to an MP3 format. The MP3 file is also about 1 hour long, as it should be. I then uploaded the MP3 file to my server and created a link on my website to access this file. The upload seems to go without a hitch. However, when I click on the link, my media player is open and it begins to play the mp3. But when I look at the duration of this file as it is playing, it says it is only 45 minutes long. So I do not know why it is 15 minutes less then what it should be. Something must happen when it is uploaded. I spoke to the person hosting my server and this has also baffled her. Not sure how to resolve this problem. Hopefully, you can give me a few suggestions.

I had a database in SQL Server 2000 that has one primary data files and no secondary. The DB in danger of becoming too large for it's current drive. If I create a secondary data file on another drive will this resolve my problem?

A:Solved: SQL Server 2000-Secondary Data File

Hi there,

Yes if you create a seconday data file the primary will fill till it can no longer grow and SQL will then use the secondary. See below extract from help File.

Microsoft SQL Server 2000 maps a database using a set of operating-system files. All data and objects in the database, such as tables, stored procedures, triggers, and views, are stored within these operating-system files:

This file contains the startup information for the database and is used to store data. Every database has one primary data file.

These files hold all of the data that does not fit in the primary data file. If the primary file can hold all of the data in the database, databases do not need to have secondary data files. Some databases may be large enough to need multiple secondary data files or to use secondary files on separate disk drives to spread data across multiple disks.

Transaction Log
These files hold the log information used to recover the database. There must be at least one log file for each database.

Here is the scenario:

VPN Server is set up on Windows 7 Professional machine behind DSL modem and router with port forwarding enabled. I have no trouble connecting or logging in from any client computer regardless of operating system (with the exception of clients whose outbound traffic is going through Linksys WRT54-G wireless router, but that is not my issue).

The installation of Windows 7 is fresh with no new programs installed. I have created one test folder for sharing and have enabled all sharing possibilities that I know of for one user account, which is the same user account that is logging in over the VPN. I have enabled the "Network Shares" for this user as well as the "NTFS Shares."

All client computers which have been tested for logging in through the VPN are in the same workgroup (NOT Homegroup). The workgroup shows up in the "New Network Place" Wizard of the client computer, but the folder I have manually shared is not visible. As a result, the test file I created and shared within that folder is not accessible, nor is it visible on the client.

What I would like to find out is this:


(Note to Microsoft...if you're actually listening...this used to be set up on an XP VPN and all I had to do was tell XP who I wanted to share a file with and it worked. Why did you mess this up?)

A:windows 8 to server file transfer

Have you tried initializing the transfer from the "whs" instead of from Windows 8 to the WHS? Try that, go into the WHS and try to move it from Windows 8 to there, from within the WHS.

The only thing I can think of, is that at the very end of that transfer, it may be pulling up a Permission dialogue on the WHS which you can't see on Windows 8. Because it is possibly moving the transferred file from a Temp folder on the WHS to the folder you chose as the destination.

You may also try checking the permissions of that file, and give Administrators full permission to handle it.

Ok, so here is a little info about the network setup.
Linksys E3200 Router
3 - Windows 7 Machines (Enterprise & Ultimate) , Tried wire and wireless
1 - Windows 8 64-bit machine
2 New Macbooks (Air and Pro)
1 Mac Mini server (2011 model) - 3TB external HD formatted in OS Journal (default mac) with samba sharing enabled

So here is the issue...
The macbook's we have connect and transfer large amounts of files just fine to the mac mini. No issues at all, even on wireless. The issue is when trying to transfer files from the Windows machines to the mac mini. You select just one 150mb file to copy over, and it might fail at 30mb or 120mb transferring giving an error like file or path is not available. However you can hit retry a few times and it might continue or restart, sometimes you have to cancel and copy the file over again. It acts like it loses the path, but you can instantly navigate to the server again instantly like there was never an issue. If you select a bunch files to transfer, lets just say like 2000 files, and its a total of 4gb. You will have to hope the retry works when the error happens or click skip and redo the file after. Nothing stands out that is causing this, but it is either an issue with the Mac & Samba transfer, router setting, or a Windows setting / registry issue causing it.

I have a client who uses this very very bad (in my opinion) industry-specific software. It runs on a Windows 2000 Server in Terminal Services. The problem is that whenever a user opens this program, there is a session file created by it (unrelated to the operating system's login). This isn't a problem, as it's deleted when they log off... except for when this nasty program stops responding or closes without warning! Then there's a user file left over. If you try to delete it, it says that the file is locked or in use... access denied. If we restart the server (after painfully having everyone log off), I can delete the file fine... So, my quesion is: (1) is there a way of un-locking a file without restarting when this happens? And (2) is there a way to disable file locking in Windows 2000 Server?

I've found a bit of information about "opportunistic file locking", but it doesn't seem to have helped this specific problem. I figure if we can find some way to disable file locking, at least I could run a batch program every so often to delete out-dated log-ins before they run out of licenses and need to reboot.

Hi there

My friend wants me to set up a NAS server for him - but wants to use WINDOWS -- strange choice but it's doable and I suppose it will be less hassle to keep fixing Windows than allowing him to hose up a Linux system if he's never used Linux before.

Hardware is simple - cube type box, RAID card 4 HDD bays, 1 SSD for boot device, half height Nvidia graphics card-->HDMI and audio output.

RAID etc no problem - but is there an alternative to the wretched NTFS file system for the HDD arrays.

I'm currently using this setup on a Linux NAS server.

There are also some LONG file names which NTFS hoses up totally -- especially on the music files and I really don't want to re-name a whole slew of stuff.

Any ideas -- at these sorts of HDD sizes NTFS should really be put to bed IMO. Compared with the XFS or EXT4 file systems on Linux performance is rubbish too once you get large HDD's -- however he insists it has to be Windows and he's paying for the hardware etc. !!!!

I have a Windows XP user who can open PDF files on our secondary file server (e.g. \\serverB\shares\marketing\file.pdf) but not from the main server (\\serverA\shares\marketing\file.pdf). Same with copying PDF files. He can
copy them to his desktop. from server B but not from server A. Server A is the one assigned to him because server B is being pre-seeded for DFS and is in a different office anyway.

The problem is only with PDF files. He can open and copy any other files. And it's only on his Windows XP machine. His Windows 7 machine works just fine (he can copy and open PDF files from server A).

The two servers (Windows 2016) are set up identically as far as NTFS permissions. The only difference is that server A is set up in DFS while server B is being pre-seeded before being added to DFS.

DFS namespace type is: domain (Windows Server 2008 mode).

The XP machine had no problem under server A when the DFS namespace type was Server 2000 mode, but I'm not sure that would cause the problem.

I have a problem where i am having 2 application server clustered and both using a common file folder (residing on one app server and access by other through mapping network drive). This common shared folder is storing some files used in application. Now my problem is that because of sharing folder this way, my application starts running slowly and performance is hampered. It application actually stop running as file is not getting opened. If i remove the clustering and just work with one app server (ofcourse file folder residing on the same server) it works fine. Can somebody tell me what can be the problem if i access the files through mapped network drive. I am using windows server 2K with 2 GB RAM.

Appreciate the help on this.

I have Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time of the file uploaded time is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hour earlier??

I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task. 

Both Jobs are using the same criteria, but a... Read more

I have a file in a folder on a network drive whose path is : "\\sql\imp\ssis"

I need a windows batch file that looks into the above folder for a file with a name like : "abcd_03052012_84373.txt" .

The above file name has a date embedded in it in "ddmmyyyy" format. I want that to be extracted and put into a variable or a file somewhere so that I can read that later and store into a sql table.

Please help.
