Since it’s possible to upload documents to SharePoint via Drag and Drop, the “Open in Explorer” option in SharePoint can be removed.

I recommend to remove this option unregarded of it’s possible to upload via Drag and Drop as the user can’t update document metadata in the windows explorer.

Here’s an example of what we want:

Install SharePoint 2013 Three-tier Farm – Deploy the SQL Server Backup Job

This post of is part of my Install SharePoint 2013 Three-tier Farm project.

A clean SQL Server maintenance plan should include three processes, backup, integrity check and index optimize.

You could simply set up a SQL Server maintenance plan within the SQL Server management studio. But be aware that there are better solutions, E.g. Ola Hallengren’s SQL Server Maintenance Solution is my absolutely favourite.
