tips

As someone that uses remote desktop very frequently, it gets annoying when random issues arise such as the initial connection taking 30+ seconds to finish.

So during a move to a new server, I lost some data that was fairly critical. That said, one other person had the data that was lost and the only thing he still had the data on was a “crashed” NTFS drive that was pulled from an old home server machine.
