  • It's absolutely fine. Yes. Windows 10 will not automatically take care of much here. You'll have to do a a couple things: 1. In your PC's BIOS you might (probably not, but maybe) ensure that the ...
  • 256 has been fine for my desktops with plenty of space left after application installations. I'd rather have a big load of slow, internal storage than always have to rely on an externally ...
  • Possibly SyncToy (Microsoft Powertools). I used it years ago so my memory is a bit hazy, if you set it to do a one way sync then it's what you describe, with the possible exception that it might ...
  • Replied in Incoherent
    I know the warning is in your username, but if you could post your question in a more coherent fashion, then people wouldn't get confused and you might get the answers you want. Reading your post ...
  • The backup system recognises that the file has changed, and if the file is already uploaded, then uploads only the changed portion of the file (this saves bandwidth and time). So you don't have to ...
  • Antivirus.
  • Why do you want a graphics card- how is the current one causing 'slowness'? The graphics capability built into your Intel CPU (assuming you've got an Intel CPU) is fine for most photo work, unless ...
  • Yeah, Z1 or perhaps Z2, but not particularly high levels of user write activity- it was a pretty typical environment where the vast majority of people were just using Microsoft Office lightly, so ...
  • Have gone past the the capacity threshold without issues? I'm wondering if it's a guaranteed performance hit, or whether it's luck. For us, the impact was so severe when we first hit it in an SME ...
  • Yep, that's probably a combination of two things: The first one is that people who use FreeNAS are often using an old PC or server, and memory is dirt cheap as long as you're not looking at DDR4 ...
  • It's worth pointing out that FreeNAS is more commonly used to refer to the software side of things. Most people out there who run "FreeNAS" at home are running the OS/software appliance on their ...
  • QNAP/Synology are the two main brands when it comes to home NAS. Both are generally fine. Both come with apps that plug into cloud backup destinations, if that's what you're interested in. When I ...
  • What are you doing that needs 32GB RAM? Some people need it, but not many. I'm seeing it for 140 for 16GB DIMMs, assuming you need DDR4.
  • Entirely agreed. I have one of these watches on my wrist now, and there are many places in the world where the radio sync feature doesn't work. And you still have to set timezone manually whenever ...
  • Apologies if it's already been explained and I missed it, but why are you after parts versus a whole machine? Old, whole, PCs should be cheap and bypasses the hassle of trying to piece together ...
  • Replied in Further update
    Congratulations on getting it working (I must admit to having lost track of what's going on a couple pages back). You might want to replace the blutack with something more robust- blutack isn't ...
  • First of all, I would like to say that this is the best thought out tech question I have read for a long time. Looks like you've looked into this problem properly and done tests to isolate. What do ...
  • Kind of the point I was trying to make, who defines "optimum" when it comes to PCs, or anything else where there is a raw performance vs user-friendliness/eye-candy trade off? Frankly, looking at ...
  • For the same reason that not all DSLRs come out of the box with settings such as (1) Back button focus (2) Spot metering (3) RAW only (4) The LCD switched off
  • Replied in Removing ODD?
    The internal would simply be tossed, there's no point keeping it as USB external ODDs are so cheap anyway. I should have been clearer in my previous post. The hole in the case case would be pretty ...
