A company has Windows 8.1 client computers. Users store data files in their user profile libraries.


You need to ensure that you can restore data files to any date while minimizing system overhead.


Which two actions should you perform? (Each answer presents part of the solution.

Choose two.)



Enable Storage Spaces.


Configure settings to save copies of files daily.


Turn on File History.


Configure Windows 7 File Recovery.


Answer: BC



Protecting user files with File History

File History is a backup application that continuously protects your personal files stored in Libraries, Desktop, Favorites, and Contacts folders. It periodically (by default every hour) scans the file system for changes and copies changed files to another location. Every time any of your personal files has changed, its copy will be stored on a dedicated, external storage device selected by you. Over time, File History builds a complete history of changes made to any personal file.


It’s a feature introduced in Windows 8 that offers a new way to protect files for consumers. It supersedes the existing Windows Backup and Restore features of Windows 7.


Before you start using File History to back up your files, you’ll need to set up a drive to save files to. We recommend that you use an external drive or network location to help protect your files against a crash or other PC problem.


File History only saves copies of files that are in your libraries, contacts, favorites, and on your desktop. If you have folders elsewhere that you want backed up, you can add them to one of your existing libraries or create a new library.


No schedule

File History wakes up once an hour and looks for personal files that have changed. Versions of all files that have changed are replicated to a dedicated storage device. This approach eliminates the need to set up a schedule and leave a computer idle for an extended period of time. One hour frequency offers a good balance between the level of protection and amount of storage space consumed by file versions. Enthusiasts can change the frequency from 10 min to 1 day in order to increase the level of protection or reduce storage consumption.

Assign Intern the Deny log on through Remote Desktop Services user right.


Remove the Sales group from the Remote Desktop Users group.


Remove Intern from the Sales group.


Answer: B




A company has an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain. The corporate environment includes a Windows Software Update Services (WSUS) server. All client computers run Windows 8.1 and a custom web application. The company has a Microsoft Software Assurance for Volume Licensing agreement.


After deploying Windows Updates to the computers, the web application stops responding. You establish that a specific optional update installed by Windows Update is causing the problem. In the Windows Update Control Panel item, the option to remove the update is unavailable.


You need to remove only the optional update from one client computer.


What should you do?



Restart the computer from a Diagnostic and Repair Toolset (DaRT) boot disk and use the Hotfix Uninstaller tool.


From the c:\Windows folder, open the $NTUninstallKBxxxx folder for the update and run the uninstall command.


Start the computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration option.


use System Restore to restore the computer to a point before the update was installed.


Run the Update-Sources Windows PowerShell cmdlet.


Answer: A


Getting Started with DaRT 8.0


How to Get DaRT 8.0

DaRT 8.0 is a part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP). MDOP is part of Microsoft Software Assurance.

Overview of the Tools in DaRT 8.0


From the Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset window in Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) 8.0, you can start any of the individual tools that you include when you create the DaRT 8.0 recovery image.


Exploring the DaRT tools


Hotfix Uninstall

The Hotfix Uninstall Wizard lets you remove hotfixes or service packs from the Windows operating system on the computer that you are repairing. Use this tool when a hotfix or service pack is suspected in preventing the operating system from starting.



You add two hard drives to a Windows 8.1 computer. The computer does not have a RAID controller.


You plan to store data only on the two new hard drives.


You need to ensure that data loss will not occur if only one hard drive fails.


What should you do?



Create a spanned volume.


Create a storage pool that contains both drives and set the resiliency type to Two-way mirror.


Create a storage pool that contains both drives and set the resiliency type to Parity.


Create a storage pool that contains one drive, and then add the second drive to the pool.


Answer: B


Storage Spaces: FAQ


What is Storage Spaces?


Storage Spaces lets you group drives together in a storage pool. Then you can use pool capacity to create storage spaces.

Storage spaces are virtual drives that appear in File Explorer. You can use them like any other drive, so it’s easy to work with files on them. You can create large storage spaces and add more drives to them when you run low on pool capacity.

If you have two or more drives in the storage pool, you can create storage spaces that won’t be affected by a drive failure–or even the failure of two drives, if you create a three- way mirror storage space.


Windows 8: Storage

Storage Spaces

Storage Spaces is a new feature for Windows?8 that allows a user to combine several disks into a single pool of storage that provides for easier management of multiple disks and resiliency against hardware failure on any of those disks. The disks that you use for Storage Spaces can be a mix of different-sized disks, and these can be connected to Microsoft?Windows using both internal and external connections, making it easy to turn the collection of drives you already have into a safe and easy-to-manage place to store things like your home videos or photos.


The table below describes the different options for resiliency:














































You administer Windows 8.1 Enterprise computers in your company network.


One of the computers indicates high memory utilization. You open Task Manager on the computer and discover that a process named Antimalware Service Executable consumes 30% of available memory.


You need to identify the account that is used to run the process.


In Task Manager, which tab should you select to identify the account? (To answer, select the appropriate tab in the answer area.)









A company plans to deploy Windows 8.1 to 100 client computers. Each client computer has 8 GB of memory.


You have the following requirements:


Ensure that the operating system fully utilizes the available memory.

Ensure that the operating system can be activated by using a Key Management Service (KMS) client setup key.

Minimize the operating system space requirements.


You need to identify the appropriate edition of Windows 8.1 to install on the client computers.

Compare Windows 8.1 Editions

For enterprise features like Domain Join and Group Policy you will need the Enterprise version of Windows 8.1.


Further Information:


Understanding KMS

KMS activates computers on a local network, eliminating the need for individual computers to connect to Microsoft. To do this, KMS uses a client-server topology. KMS client computers can locate KMS host computers by using Domain Name System (DNS) or a static configuration. KMS clients contact the KMS host by using remote procedure call (RPC).
