Most Popular Articles

Over the years we've written quite a number of articles on various subjects, both technical and non-technical. Here are the most popular articles for the previous year:

1. Introduction to Hashing and its uses: If you are transferring a file from one computer to another, how do you ensure that the copied file is the same as the source? One method you could use is called hashing, which is essentially a process that translates information about the file into a code. Two hash values (of the original file and its copy) can be compared to ensure the files are equal.

2. SFTP Authentication: This article discusses the basics of what SFTP is and the various authenticating methods in which a user can use to connect to an SFTP server (depending on how the server is set up). In addition, we will be discussing how a connecting client can check to ensure the SFTP server is authentic.

3. Understanding Windows File Attributes: We use digital files every day, but it’s relatively rare we need to recognize the attributes of a digital file. This article is all about understanding File Attributes in Windows.

4. A Basic Introduction to NTFS Permissions: In Windows, permissions are available on every file, folder, registry key, printer and Active Directory object. However, in this article we’ll be concentrating on NTFS file and folder permissions. These permissions are available on NTFS file systems but not on FAT based file systems.

5. Understanding NTFS Hard Links, Junctions and Symbolic Links: Microsoft has implemented linking tools in its NTFS operating file systems since Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000. These links provide a convenient method for users to access their data.
