• Defragmenting hard drive on Windows Server 2003

    When does a hard drive on a hardly used Windows 2003 server need to be de-fragmented? The server is a file server and has files written and removed from it several times a week and is accessed by ~25 users. Can we set an alert when we hit a hard fragmentation level?

  • how does channel length affect patch cord length?

    I need to install a 10/100 base Ethernet switch into a rather small cabinet. I read in a previous discussion that the minimum length for a CAT5e patch cable is 2.5m, which will make the install look untidy. If I use a CAT6 or CAT6a cable what will the minimum length have to be?
