Sync: Flush all Disk Cache to Disk

In some cases, Windows might cache data before writing it to the disk. When a computer is shut down normally, all cached data is written to the disk. If you plan to shut down a computer forcibly (by initiating a Stop error or disconnecting the power), you can run the Sync command to flush all file system data to the disk. Sync, which is available as a free download, is also useful to ensure that all data is written to removable disks.
The simplest way to use Sync is to run it with no parameters and with administrative privileges, which flushes data for all disks:

Windows 7: How to search Active Directory?

In Windows XP, There was “Windows Address Book” program preinstalled. You can use Windows Address Book to search Active Directory for users, computers, printers, contacts, etc.,

Too Bad, Windows 7 doesn’t have “Address Book” program. Well there is, but it is not listed in programs menu. The following trick works for every domain user.

  1. Click Start Orb Menu, and type %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\rundll32.exe dsquery,OpenQueryWindow (I would recommend create a shortcut and place it in programs menu)
  2. Select your domain in dropdown box and search away.
