  • Hi Randy I've been using AOMEI Backupper for years and never had any problem with it. I have both Win 7 and 10 machines including a Win 10 tablet and have never had a problem using this software. ...
  • Replied in Ssd vs hdd
    I agree with all your responders below. SSD is a no brainer.  Every tablet and mobile phone out there uses this technology. The only reason mechanical HDDs are still used in laptops is they are ...
  • No mystery. I wanted to "network" the PCs so I could copy, share, drag, drop etc files between PCs. As I said, it should have been easy but I hadn't the competence or patience - call it what you ...
  • They don't.  It's an MS "Garage" project not part of Windows OS. A small point, I admit and certainly not a reason for not using it especially, as you point out, it's free. I tried it out but ...
  • As to your first question. No. You can start any app on any of the other PCs with the mouse/keyboard but it runs on that PC and is viewed on the monitor connected to it.I suppose there may be some ...
  • Windows 10 Pro x 64 version 1709.
  • Yeah, one of the many things I tried - disabling and even uninstalling all AV and Firewall programs.  I use ZoneAlarm but usually find most apps I install add an exception. I found I had to do ...
  • I eventually found the hybrid setting you referred to and there was a "Fast Boot" checkbox that was checked. I've unchecked this and the PC does not hibernate now. Don't  know why this should have ...
  • Thanks for the detailed reply. I can't see anything called that but have been through all the settings. They are all off, disabled or set to Never.  I must be missing something though so will keep ...
  • Thanks, Simon. I tried all that - even granting Full Control to everything. The PC machine names would appear under the Network section of the Win 7 Explorer but I could never get further than ...
  • No. I was using the same Administrator account to log in to all PCs. Was this my mistake? They need to have different users as they would on a real network?
  • Created discussion thread Gave up on networking PCs ....
    Now I'll admit as I get older (70 now) , I've become a lazy and impatient old fart but I gave it my best shot. I was trying to network two Win10 PCs and one Win 7 PC (two ethernet cabled, one ...
  • Hi Chris I ended up re-installing the OS from scratch which executed flawlessly from an ISO burned to a DVD.   Windows automatically activated then installed all current patches and updates. No ...
  • Ever since the Win 10 Fall Creator's Update 1709 my HP tablet appears to boot too quickly - as if recovering from sleep or hibernate mode rather than fully re-booting after a full shutdown.  Not ...
  • AmbleYonder, thank you so much for the link!  The second step - changing the PortableOperating System Dword value from "1" to "0" worked - after some fiddling around.  I'm guessing that just ...
  • Thanks a lot for the link. It seems to address just this problem. I'll post my results.
  • I suggest you re-read my post.
  • My friend with the A9 said why not get an A9 body and try a Sony to Canon lens adapter? It's a thought, I guess. I love my Canon glass.
  • No, I wasn't wondering that at all. I was comparing the A9 with Canons current offerings which come nowhere near the Alpha 9's capabilities (and the Nikon D850 for that matter) and questioning why ...
