  • OK, thanks for that explanation. I also use a QNAP, but I use 3rd party software for my backups since I was already familiar with it before the QNAP became part of my system. Do you think I can set ...
  • (1) Every hour the NAS takes a snapshot of the images folder so any accidental deletes, ransomware encryption or such that happens afterwards can be recovered from the latest NAS snapshot. This gives ...
  • One plan of action: Call Authorized Photo Service and ask if they have a motor for the lens. If they do, buy it and put it on a shelf. Then buy the 80-200 af-s, knowing that you've already ...
  • Another photog with the same hdwe. (3770K overclocked, Asus P8 77V Pro). I'm a heavy Photoshop user + LR and Capture One and I see absolutely no reason to upgrade at this point — the quantum leap ...
  • When I populated my QNAP, I chose WD Reds because the Hitiachi drives (then best of class) were too expensive. I did not consider Toshiba, but this data from 2015 seems to show they can hold their own.
  • Replied in Multi tasking
    I vote for never. User input is a <s> novel idea </s> but given that LR performs differently on similarly spec'd machines — sometimes wildly so — then I'm thinking this will be a tough nut to crack.
  • I would place memory and processing speed ahead of the ssd since program/plugin loading is a fractional, minimal part of an editing session. You can do fine with a conventional HD as your ...
  • Agreed. If I'm locked out because I block ads I will go elsewhere. I usually contact the site, explain why my adblocker will remain active and then remind them that they need me way more than I ...
  • I turn on System Restore about twice a year and leave it on until Windows runs an optimization on my SSD, then I turn it off again. I guess I could leave it on but I rely on system imaging ...
  • A write-in for Opera. It pioneered many features that were ultimately copied by others. Admittedly it's not the same uber-customizable browser it once was. It may be time to look at Vivaldi ...
  • I may have overlooked what software you're using, but I'm assuming Lightroom. Things may have changed, but LR could inexplicably be a real dog performance-wise on some computers but not on other, ...
  • Not sure that it's relevant, but at the time I had to make a choice DROBO was getting slammed for reliability and support issues so I went with QNAP. No regrets.
  • I think your event photos are exceptional (didn't view anything else). I agree with the others about the load times. A recent study says the average attention span is 8 seconds, and that's for ...
  • And from the present , yet another attack sprung from malicious ads delivered through legitimate ad networks and displayed on legitimate websites.
  • As long as ads remain a vector for malware, including ads on "trusted" sites, I'll use my blockers. If I can't access content, they can go to hell and I will go elsewhere.
  • I hope that's sarcasm...
  • I hope this pans out since I was a big AMD fan back in the (socket 939) day. However, for the past few years AMD's pre-launch claims have tended to be overblown so I think wait and see should be ...
  • Anything that gets printed is output as a jpeg. Clients get  jpegs of selected files if they choose digital delivery. That's it.
  • In order of preference of the types of technology: (1) Online double conversion (2) Line interactive with sine wave output (3) Offline ...
  • I prefer a S&W .45 ACP...
