    Database Server on OneDrive and/or MS Teams

    Yes, I suspect so. And it is nightmare to devise a locking mechanism. No, I need write access too MS Teams has evolved and it is more than a messaging app. It works as the front end of Sharepoint, Onedrive, etc. I explained what I want to do. Thanks anyway.

    How can I do this? Can you explain please? I have another story to tell here. My department has bought a piece of software for me to do my job.

    Bitlocker - Windows 10 - Admin Account - How to

    Not necessarily. Until recently, OneDrive could sync only specific folders. You couldn't store the cloud data in any folder you wanted. In my case, I pay for the license of what I want to install No, it is not. I am not talking about such trivial examples. They said no. Hmmm...it would be...

    Bitlocker - Windows 10 - Admin Account - How to

    So, to be clear I completely understand the reasons of this. No need to convince me although I do not agree with the reasoning. For example, the rationale you present is about what is easier for the support teams when it should be about what is best for the employees and users. Shouldn't the...

    Bitlocker - Windows 10 - Admin Account - How to

    Yes, I know and I know. The only thing I want to do is to install a different email client and cloud storage app. I thought of taking an image of the drive using macrium and then restoring it on a VMWare virtual machine. Would that transfer the encryption as well? I woudl have thought so if...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Ok. I suppose the dev ISO can upgrade an existing Win10 installation and doesn't complain about the TPM. If so, then one could go from WIn10 --> Dev ISO --> Full Version to bypass the requirement

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    I've got a laptop with Intel Core i7-7700HQ and in the BIOS there is TRM 2.0 functionality which is enabled. PC Health Check app says that my system can not run Win 11. So the processor as minimum requirement seems to take precedence compared to TRM functionality

    Does this work for sure? Do I need the same build to get this option? Does it appear in upgrades as well? I have a backup of the boot drive but still scared to try it. But looks like it is the only solution. I wonder what went wrong though.(n)

    Looking for advice on software architecture

    Yes it is a standalone app. I always keep logic and UI separate as much as possible. I try to follow MVVM approach. But I think you are right. Sounds like I am overly concerned about this given that it may not happen as you say

    Mysterious issue with programs not opening on Windows 10

    I have a very similar problem. Some apps (e.g. Google Chrome) do not start when I search for them in the search box next to start menu. I have to go through Start menu. Never figured out why this happens.
