  • File History is something you can turn on to keep older versions of files when they're changed.  Type "File History" into the Windows search bar to see the configuration.  It's similar in concept ...
  • That Manfrotto head does not have an adjustable return spring, so even if the camera is properly balanced the head will try to return to the level position if the camera isn't heavy enough. Basical ...
  • Replied in Version 5.2?
    Yes, in theory at least an image backup doesn't need to make a backup of the unused space, whereas a "clone" will copy everything "as is". But there are a lot of different types of clone software ...
  • Replied in Version 5.2?
    I use Reflect specifically for Windows image backups, I have my own backup utility for my files and I keep multiple backup cycles going back for around a year so I can recover from those kinds of ...
  • Replied in Version 5.2?
    I'm using 7.3 and it's working just fine.   Version 8 has been released, but perhaps not as a free version yet...?
  • Yeah, you're hooped. When you delete a file from a hard drive the pointers to the data are removed but the data itself still exists on the magnetic media - this is why "undelete" programs can ...
  • The way I'd try it (if I wasn't allowed to just pull the drive out of the system) would be to boot from a Windows installation USB stick and use the "repair" (or "recover"?) option.  I believe you ...
  • In these days of USB 3 the limiting factor for an externally attached hard drive is the hard drive itself.
  • What you're describing is essentially a global shutter.   Yeah, folks are working on that.  If it was easy it would have been done already. The problem is that you not only need several storage ...
  • ...which is exactly my point about smartphones.  They're expensive, ubiquitous, and they often have precious data on it that users don't have any other copies of.  It's a perfect market for a ...
  • There certainly is a bit of investment in equipment and skill needed to do this kind of work, and that may well rule out repairs to inexpensive equipment.  But there's a huge market for things ...
  • It sounds to me like you selected and backed up one of the "utility" partitions on the system drive rather than the OS partition.  There are a bunch of these, including the Windows recovery ...
  • You can certainly do it easily enough in a half decent video editor, but if what you're asking is for a piece of software that will automatically pan the video left and right inside the editor as ...
  • There's the Panasonic BS1H , although I'm not sure how well it fits the role you're seeking.  Or into your budget...
  • Same reason some folks buy or lease new cars every year or three.  You're just not cool if you don't have the Latest And Greatest. It's never been my shtick, but somebody's gotta keep the economy ...
  • A lot of folks think that Xeon chips are exclusively used in servers where you can plug multiple CPU chips into the same system for massively parallel threading capabilities.  And those Xeon chips ...
  • There are a lot of consumer devices such as televisions, bluray players, set-top streaming boxes, etc. that have the ability to play video, either via the Internet or via something like a USB ...
  • ECC-capable systems really aren't all that much more expensive.  For my most recent system I bought a Xeon 2278G, which is essentially the ECC-enabled version of the Core i9 9900K for a few bucks ...
  • An unscheduled diversion of a commercial airliner can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in reputation, customer compensation, fuel, and crew costs - not only for the diverted flight but also ...
  • Fair point.   Although this entire "bit rot" issue seems a bit overblown to me.  I've been checksumming all of the files on online and backup drives for a couple of decades now and I've never ...
