Have "the folks at Elcomsoft" helped anyone at all?

comment Vulnerability of EFS (Encrypting File System) on Windows 7
EFS is as secure as the encryption algorithms it uses. If you had no password or a weak password on your laptop, then attackers would be able to gain access using that. Same thing goes if your computer is encrypted with TrueCrypt and they get a hold of the password. Might also mention that even the people behind TC aren't willing to vouch for it's security. Microsoft does vouch for EFS. As for the Elcomsoft product, I'm very sceptical as to how it works, it is probably just a hoax.

Can't really compare Truecrypt/Bitlocker to EFS as they solve different problems altogether. Full-disk encryption is no use when you need two different systems to share files without anyone else being able to decrypt them. We use service-accounts to encrypt in EFS-enabled folders, and only the service-accounts can decrypt on the other server.

EFS encrypts files using strong encryption stored in certificates in Active Directory. That said, if you use lousy passwords even in AD it's relatively easy to bypass the security. Truecrypt is no more secure, cryptographically.

comment SettingsServiceDB "Database is too old and upgrade is required"
As @Domenico states, this isn't a valid command for non-Content databases. I have this problem with the StateDatabase, and neither psconfig nor upgrade-spcontentdatabase does any good. I downvoted this answer as it's just a shot in the dark and of no value to the OP.

comment Sharepoint 2013 extremely slow
I got this problem with a fresh install of SharePoint 2013 on a single VM, using a backend SQL cluster. The SP server has 8 GB RAM and 8 cores available to it. It runs pretty lean using only 40% of the memory, so far. Still, I was looking at 6 second load times on the Home.aspx page. EVERY time. So I tried stopping the Distributed Cache service, and speed was back up... It's NOT a resource-problem...
