Goto above official web site to download the installation file.

The installation file name is epm.exe, about 28MB.

Then double click to run it.

During the installation, it may ask a few recommendation software, including PC Mechanic, EaseUS Todo Backup Free, etc.

If you don’t like them, you can uncheck the check mark or choose Custom installation. Then it will only install the Partition software.

On the very first screen of installation, it show you the difference of Free edition and Pro edition.

If you are interested in these additional features, you can try Pro edition.

I just wondering why EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition need to add a startup item, EaseUS EOM tray and EaseUS EPM Tray Agent,  into the system. I hate these unnecessary startup program. So I disabled it.

Here is the main screen of the program, when I run the program first time.

I tried some operation on my USB disk, which is NTFS file system format.

Such as Resize partition / Delete partition / Wipe partition / Create  partition.  No issue found.

If you need a free Partition software, I would like to recommend it.

How to add windows to a CentOS 6.3 server

I installed a CentOS 6.3 server on virtualbox. It has no windows, or GUI installed.
Now I wanted to add a GUI to my server, but I could not find easy documentation showing how to add a GUI, or Gnome in this case, to a CentOS 6 server installation.
There are a lot of results of how to do this, but things have been renamed in CentOS 6, so that made it more difficult to figure out. Also, there are “Short Names” and I am assuming they are called “Long Names” associated with a yum groupinstall, which added to my confusion.
To add Gnome/GUI to a minimal CentOS 6 install run (short name version):

yum groupinstall basic-desktop desktop-platform x11 fonts

And the “long name” version:

yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"

Recently, Microsoft published a security bulletin and recommended fix for a critical vulnerability in the Remote Desktop Protocol (CVE-2012-0002), which has the potential to impact all versions of Windows from XP through the most recent developer preview. This vulnerability allows for remote code execution by an unauthenticated attacker. More information is currently available at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms12-020.
Microsoft has issued a statement confirming that CVE-2012-0002 was privately reported. This problem has been given an Exploitability Index of 1, indicating that exploit code is likely. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc998259 for more details.
At this time, we are highly recommending that all clients who may be impacted by this issue:

2. Enable Network Level Authentication – This will require any potential exploits to first successfully authenticate to the server before an RDP session is established.
