Smart Windows administrators know that the only way to get the job done is to find the right tools, but so many interesting-looking tools are so poorly-documented that no one's got the time to figure out how to make them useful.  That's why Windows techie Mark Minasi taken the time every month from November 1997 onward to research and explain those tools in his This Old Resource Kit and Windows Power Tools columns, featured monthly in Windows IT Pro Magazine. 

What's that you say, you've not had time to check out all thirteen years’ worth?  No problem:  Mark's here to offer a fast-paced, entertaining look at some of the best power tools he's uncovered over the years.  Come explore the power of sc.exe, the Swiss Army Knife of service tools, and its oddly excitable nature.  See how you can unleash robocopy on your file transfer tasks, and still manage to get home in time for dinner.  Learn some useful "stupid Netmon tricks," discover how to smoke out Active Directory replication issues with repadmin, even if your company doesn't allow smoking on the premises.  And that's just the start -- don't miss a chance to get a quick look AND some useful, accurate examples of a couple of dozen of the most powerful of Windows power tools!
