Question... Since deploying Windows 10 to our users' PCs and laptops throughout our facility and enabling Windows Synchronization of local Documents and Desktop folders (after moving locations) to our backup server, we have separate folders being created on the root directory that are empty and are appearing named as long keys as:


Anyone know why this is occurring, if these are necessary and/or if they are safe to remove?

Thank you!

Thanks, Sean... Unfortunately, we can't even navigate to the folders. They appear to be temporary folders on a remote PC... When logged into the server, they don't even appear.

We have found this morning a possible culprit. It appears that it's related to how our AppAssure server backs up to our Hyper-V config on this file server. It's creating shared temporary folders and in multiples. When I copied over a couple of files into one of the temporary folders, they duplicate and populate the remaining 20 or so folders.

It dumps the files into the following temp directory on the server:

So, it appears to be a configuration issue with how AppAssure is backing up data in a Hyper-V environment. Since this involves Dell equipment and software, we may just contact them for further consultation.

My fiance' and I will coming your way in mid-October 2015 for our honeymoon. We both are very anxious to kick back and live a stress-free, Cayman lifestyle for a week. Especially, from Seven-Mile Beach. It looks amazing!

Any recommendations for great eats on the island?

[revised: 2015 version 03]

Here is a spec comparison of the current smartphone kings of the hill; LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Apple iPhone 6. 

We all know that specs are not everything as software and personal preference influence the end result. That said, there is only so much software can do when a camera has inferior specs. I left the HTC One out because it's camera doesn't make the cut. More on that below. The Note 4 has an almost identical camera as the Galaxy S6. Some have also mentioned Nokia's Windows Lumia phones. For now, I'm not including Windows phones. 

Here is a spreadsheet I created that shows specs for all phones by carrier:

Here are a few comparisons I've read that have influenced my opinions. I recommend the first one, which is a YouTube video where you can actually see the differences and judge for yourself:
For those curious about the HTC One and why it was not included here:

Though the G4's camera is better "on paper", I'm prepared to concede the G4 and S6 are "equivalent". I'd like to say "equal" but I'm saying "equivalent" because each has its strengths, we all have different preferences, and even then, they are so close that it is hard to call a winner.
