Question about file types

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have a reporting services project and when I look at the file system I see my .rdl files which I expect and I also see .data files for each rdl file.  What is the purpose of the .data files and do they need to be in source control as well as the rdl files

Log file size question

I recently setup transaction log backups after we had a log file get near its capacity. I noticed after log files are truncated, they still use up the same amount of disk space. Is it safe to shrink a log file?  If so how do you determine what is an appropriate size to shrink it to? I ask this because some databases, like a sharepoint content database, have log files that are 130 GB in size when their data files are only 5 GB.  I assume that now that I am running hourly log backups they dont need logg files that huge. -Edit - Also most of the logg files are setup with the default settings

Multiple File Uploads and blocked file types.

Hi hopefully someone can help me with this. I have removed a few file type extensions from the blocked file type administration interface (.ascx, ashx, dll) etc. If I browse to my shared folder I am able to load files of these types into my shared folder on a file by file basis, if however I try and use the drag and drop activex control facility for multiple files provided for IE8, files of these types are still blocked. If I also map a network drive from my PC to the shared folder and attempt to copy files of the above types, they're also being blocked. Perhaps someone has come across a similar issue and can shed some light on what they did to overcome this problem. Kind regards Paul

Use SharePoint 2010 to different video file types

Hi all,

I am new to SharePoint 2010 and have one question on Asset Libraries.

Asset Libraries is a new library type in SharePoint 2010. They are designed to hold media such as pictures and videos. We can upload a Windows Media Video (WMV) file to our Assets Library. However, can I upload other video types like MP4, flash or others?
If yes, how can I do that?
If no, are there any workaround for it?

Thanks in advanced.

hiding file-types and resources with Routing



does someone know elegant way to hidde/prevent direct access to some filetypes or web site resources, but that this resources remain accessible from application.

For example that mp3's in Music folder on www.somesite.info cannot be accessed directly via url like http://www.somesite.info/Music/SomeMP3Song.mp3

With routing off course.  I did something, but not very satisfied with it. :( 

Question regarding result types in Sharepoint Enterprise Search


I'm trying to setup search scopes for content sources that are various shares on file servers in our domain, and the main things users will be searching for are autocad drawings and folders - searching by file/folder name. I've added the dwg file type to the list of file types included in the content index (we'll see if they show up in search results after the next incremental crawl), but I don't know how to add folders as a result type. Ideally, a user will be able to check off a box for Drawing/Folder/Word Doc/Spreadsheet/etc. right next to the text box where they enter the search term(s).

Any ideas?

Question about posting a file to a web service

I am trying to upload a file to a web service from an html file using post. If I set the enctype to multipart/form-data, then the fileName field is blank but the Files.Count=1. If I remove the enctype from the form, then fileName contains the string of the file name but Files.Count=0. Is there a way I can get both the file name and the actual file from the web service? public class Service1 : System.Web.Services.WebService { byte[] binaryWriteArray; [WebMethod(Description = "Description")] public bool UploadFileCollection() { HttpContext postedContext = HttpContext.Current; HttpFileCollection Files = postedContext.Request.Files; string fileName = (string)postedContext.Request.Form["fileName"]; if (Files.Count == 1 && Files[0].ContentLength >= 1 && fileName != null && fileName != "") { byte[] binaryWriteArray = new byte[Files[0].InputStream.Length]; Files[0].InputStream.Read(binaryWriteArray, 0,(int)Files[0].InputStream.Length); } return true; }

AutoCAD Drawing File Types (.DWG) in SharePoint


When opening AutoCAD Drawing File Types (.DWG) in SharePoint 2007, if a user already has the file open and a second user opens the drawing, the user is not advised that the file is already open by another user like it does for Word or Excel file types.

Is there a way of enabling this so that if two users try to open the same file at the same time, they are advised of such?

Many thanks.

3rd Party Managed C++ File Reference Question


This seems like a common scenario but I can't seem to figure it out.  Here is my situation:


1. My development machine is a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit box with Visual Studio 2010 Professional.


2. I have a Visual Studio 2010 solution with a single managed C# project that depends on a 3rd party managed C++ assembly.


3. I have both a 32-bit and 64-bit version of the 3rd party managed C++ assembly (same file name).

Any idea if Information Rights Management (IRM) will support additional file types in future version


In Sharepoint 2007, IRM supports Excell, Word and PowerPoint out of box...

Any idea if there will be additional out of box support for filetypes such as PDF, TIFF, Outlook Emails (.msg)...?

I am hoping to avoid creating custom protectors to protect the files and building an add-ons to software such as Adobe Reader to understand the RMS licences...

Looking forward to additional suggestion as well...

File Splitter in .Net

I love to do utility programs in .Net. And this is one of them. As I was playing with JSplit (a free file splitter program), I wondered if I could do it in .Net. The framework supports file operations like reading files in bytes and creating them. It is indeed easy to do file operations in .Net Basics on File operations

UML Diagram Types

UML provides a number of diagram types as a mechanism for entering model elements into the model and showing overlapping sets of models elements and their relationships. UML does not specify what diagrams should be created or what they should contain, only what they can contain and the rules for connecting the elements. The diagram types include:

UML Diagram Types - 2

Further diagram types include:

Activity Diagrams - a generic flow chart used much in business modelling and sometimes in use case modelling to indicate the overall flow of the use case. This diagram type replaces the need for dataflow diagrams but is not a main diagram type for the purposes of analysis and design.
