Windows 2008 R2 – Check for open files and folders

For different reasons you want to check which files or folders are open on your Windows 2008 R2 (Terminal server).

To do this you need to log on as an administrator.
Go to:
Start -> Administrative Tools -> Share and Storage management

In the Action pane select ‘manage open files’

You will see a list of open files and folders.

Windows Exchange 2010 – Remove log files

Exchange server logfiles can grow very fast!

There are either logfiles in the directory ‘Mailbox Database’ or in ‘Public folder database xxxxxxx’.
I’ve create a .bat file which delete all log files aged 2 days and older:

forfiles -p "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0258665593" -m E000*.log -d -2 -c "cmd /c del @path"
forfiles -p "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Public Folder Database 0449853521" -S -m E01*.log -d -2 -c "cmd /c del @path"

You can copy the code above and make sure the directory suits your environment.
Save it as a .bat file and put in the task manager to run everyday, for example.
