  • I had the same issue about 8 months ago. One or 2 failed attempts at installing Win10.  I mentioned here in one of the threads and was told that the reason that it failed was because I had not ...
  • Looks like it's no longer included in the box. You can get it here, under drivers and downloads. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/cameras/dslr/eos-80d You will need ...
  • Personally, I would not disable System Restore, Tweak #3 .  If an update screws up you can revert to previous state in about 5-10 minutes.  It can also potentially be used to undo viruses and malware.
  • The main update to avoid is KB3035583 . There are other patches that check to see if your computer is ready for Win10, but this is the one that pops up an offer to update and could even download ...
  • Replied in Why partition?
    That might true if you only have on disk! Partitioning keeps the OS separate from the data, But you have 2 disks, SSD + HDD (hard disk drive). This gives you the SSD for the OS and programs, and ...
  • You will need offline backups if you get hit with RansomWare that encrypts your hard drives as it will search out and encrypt all your hard drives, including connected drives that have your backups.
  • The qty of images (70G) should not make a difference as the viewer only needs to load the image you are about to look at. Can you provide some info about your computer (age, CPU, qty of RAM)? What ...
  • That's twice in 2 weeks. They must be working overtime. Same spiel as before. I asked him how he knows it's my computer. He says it's my ID, but couldn't tell my my IP address (off course not). The ...
  • I also got a call from someone the other day saying my computer was infected and generating errors. I knew it was a scam but played along to see how they would try to convince me. The guy had me ...
  • Use the procedure in the following link. It will maintain all the Windows soft links. http://windows7themes.net/en-us/how-to-move-my-documents-in-windows-7/#movemydocuments This is for Win7, but if ...
  • Virus's can still target your other drives. I've read that Ransomware will search out and encrypt all of your drives, even if they are attached via USB.
  • To be clear, are you backing up the main HD to one of the other HD's you bought? As Jim says, don't delete data of the main drive. If you are overflowing the main drive, then move some of the data ...
  • Nice!  I have the 450D! Does anyone know if DPP4 will run alongside DDP3? or will installing DPP4 remove DDP3. I'd like to try DDP4 but I'm not ready to have it remove DPP3 yet!
  • I can see that you are missing the point! It actually has 5,000,845,586,432 bytes, slightly over 5 actual terabytes.
  • If your system image was backed up using sector-by-sector mode then you would need a new drive that is the same size as the old one to restore the image to the new drive. If your system image was ...
  • I find that the real numbers are very close to the published numbers, even a little bit higher. Here are sizes of 3 of my hard drives. Actual capacity are a bit higher than published numbers, but ...
  • I'm well aware of this. From my previous post you can see the my 1TB drive has actual 1,000,202,039,296 bytes but is also represented as 931 GB in computer 2^n representation.
  • Perhaps it applies that factor for representing 2TB size.  I don't have any 2TB drives to confirm. But it does not apply it for 1TB size as then my capacity would have been represented as 909 GB ...
  • As others have mentioned, computer represents the space in terms of 2 to power or n, and does this in terms of Gigabytes. So when it says 1 GB it's actually 1.073741824 GB. So when the hard drive ...
