Why is my Enterprise Backup usage so large?
SupraNet's Enterprise Backup system makes a complete backup of your files every day. However, only files that have been changed are actually written to the disk. The rest are saved as links to existing files, creating a full backup of your system without wasting space. For example, if yesterday's backup is 850MB and a 5MB file is changed, your backup for today will be 5MB.
Because of this, our system can make for very frugal disk space use. However, if you have large files that change daily, copies of these files are backed up every day. These multiple copies can consume large amounts of disk space.
I've run out of Terminal Services sessions on my server. How can I get in?
Even if you've reached the maximum number of allowed sessions on your server, it may still be possible to log in to remove stale sessions. If your server is running Windows 2003 Server or greater, you have the ability to attach to the console using a command line switch.
mstsc /v:your.server.com /console
If someone is already logged in at the console, you will be given the option to end the session.
