One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

Anytime you change the object variable that is already assigned to a session variable, do you need to "re-save" the variable back into the session variable or does it do it automatically?
// abc is an object of some random type
Session["abc"] = abc; // initial declaration of session variable.
abc.a=1; // updated abc.a field after a button_click event
Session["abc"] = abc; // resave the new field value of 'a' back into the session variable 'abc'.
Or does the session variable already keep track of all changes made to the object and saves automatically?
I have a structure that groups a number of fields together that I want to use to retain values between different web pages. My plan was to transfer the structure to a session variable and retrieve it as each page loads. In theory each of the different fields could be stored in and retrieved from separate session variables but the structure approach seemed more elegant.
I was initially assuming I would be a "sensible time" (e.g. specific event) when I could consistently save the structure content to the session variable but I realise that I may be on the wrong track and that it may be necessary to transfer to the session variable to the structure each time one of the individual field values is updated as there is no way of determining when the user is about to move to another page.
Is there a solution to this or a better approach?
I had a corrupted mdf file so I purchsed SQL Recovery Toolbox to fix it. When it repaired the file, it spat out a number of sql files and an install.bat file. Because the file was a sql 2008 express file, i'm supposed to now use sqlcmd.exe to fix it.
Apparently to get it back to a mdf file, I need to create a blank database and somehow use sqlcmd.exe to import the sql files into the new mdf file.
I use a security program which installs sql express 2008 during the install. I don't know how to use MS Sql. The security program I use has it's own batch file to attach or detatch the two mdf and ldf file to it. I emailed the SQL
Recovery Toolbox tech support for instructions on how to created a new mdf db and import the repaired sql files but they basically said that they have an agreement with MS and cannot tell me how to do it.
Can someone please let me know what to do or where to look for assistance? I am stuck at the moment and don't know what else to do.
Any help greatly appreciated, cheers.
