Let’s Encrypt with win-acme (exporting certificate IIS)

Using https://www.win-acme.com for SSL.

To make a certificate exportable in Windows make sure that you modify the “settings.json” that is included with win-acme. Change “PrivateKeyExportable”: false to “PrivateKeyExportable”: true .

If you already created the certificate you might need to delete it then reboot the machine to keep it from giving you a cached version of the SSL certificate.

Clear Chrome DNS

For the most part I use chrome and every time I do a modification to my hosts file I don’t want to close the browser because it caches DNS. This seems to work to clear cache chrome://net-internals/#dns

Recover lost space on a USB drive

While doing some software installations for linux I had to shrink my flash drive to a partition of 32GB. The next time I stuck in my laptop I forgot I had done that and needed to use the entire 64GB that was available. Disk management wouldn’t allow me to delete the 32GB partition so I had do the following steps.

  • Insert your USB drive
  • Open a command prompt
  • Type in “diskpart”
  • Another window will open up, type “LIST DISK”. Not which disk is your USB drive.
  • Type in “SELECT DISK 1” or whatever disk was your USB drive.
  • Assuming you only had 1 partition on that drive, type in “SELECT PARTITION 1”.
  • Then type in “DELETE PARTITION”
  • That should be it, go back to Disk Management to complete the process of creating your partitions or formatting.
