comment PowerShell unable to get file metadata from Comments field when it's too long
Want to just comment that the script has been chugging away in production for almost a year and has plucked apart the metadata from more than 400,000 .wma files using this library. It works flawlessly! Thanks again! :)

comment Folder with a million files - how to use Powershell to limit the returned file list to a maximum number of files and avoid the hours-long wait?
This will still read through all files and then return a list of the preferred length.

comment Location map on logged on user
Can you elaborate on that? You want to set up a webpage that displays the locations of your users? Have you considered the privacy implications of this? Disregarding that, if you have a textfile list of locations + a textfile list of users + computers, then building a webpage that reads information from the text files will be trivial, which you can probably build using PHP. :)

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.

comment Vulnerability of EFS (Encrypting File System) on Windows 7
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.
