Hi all,

When is it appropriate (and not appropriate and dangerous) to use the Amazing Utilities?

They actually can be helpful. However, like anything else, if it ain't broke...

But, if yo are having some issues, it may help solve them or, at the very least, show you have a problem.

You can use it to test speed between computers. Also, there was a time when I was a "Do everything best practices way," so I would use AmazingUtilities to move the SQL databases to the data drive. This works, but not for the faint of heart and since you MAY upgrade at some point, it scares me a bit to see if the new installer finds SQL. Plus, I am not always sure support will either have wanted you to move them or if they are very familiar with the move. I would guess less than 99% of people do. Personally, I not just install AC on the data drive

Again, a great reason for a standalone computer or a VM. VMs are great for this. Of course, only for the same version frown

Thank you, Bert.

I just want to make sure we're talking about the same utility.

Dear Gianni,

In case this is just confusion about where the well-hidden options are . . .

Bert was talking about things seen only if you click on the "Advanced Options" or "reset paths" on the Amazing Utilities opening screen.

Cheers,

Carl Fogel

I see. Thank you.

So my understanding is...this is meant to be run from a workstation, and not the Server?

You can use it over the network, but for most things I would run it on the server. Definitely wouldn't want to move databases from a client.
