Windows "Windows 8 build 7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508 contains a number of references to a brand new feature in Windows: Portable Workspaces. Microsoft will allow Enterprise customers to create USB storage driven copies of Windows. 'Portable Workspace is a Windows feature that allows you to run Windows from a USB storage device', notes Microsoft in its description of the feature inside Windows 8." So, yeah, something we've been waiting for in Windows since, well, forever. Also, push notifications, a screenshot tool and a new webcam application have been discovered as well.

Member since:

probably laziness on my part. Is there a quick alternative to chkdsk to repair an ntfs filesystem or check for bad blocks. how about accessing shadow copies or in the extremely irritating event that I run into a windows based software RAID, what's the repair process from linux?

I actually do have usb installs in my desk for windows, linux and osx,, so it's not a matter of trying to do all things with windows... it's more of a pick the best(or, quickest) tool for the job thing.
