  • Here we go again. Another nonsensical Microsoft bash from Calson... Wrong. The OS already knows which filesystem blocks are free and which are not. And it is not the OS doing garbage collection, it ...
  • Such is life in tech. V2000 was better than betamax, which in turn was significantly better than VHS. We all know how that ended. Sometimes press and advertising budgets are more important than ...
  • Blocks just get written to addresses It doesn't matter all that much if the addresses are sequential or not as there is no physical movement involved to get to the next address. Writing to address ...
  • If a lot has happened on a filesystem and it has not been trimmed for a while, executing a trim does not take seconds but can take a while. If you have a large SSD, it can take a long while. ...
  • No, no and no. You do not own software and it is not your property. Ever. If it comes on physical media, you own the media but not what is stored on it. You never paid for ownership of the ...
  • That may be true in some cases percentage wise but when you are already talking nanoseconds, it's not going to matter all that much.
  • This is because what you notice most when moving from hdd to ssd is the massive reduction of latency, not throughput. Throughput is only relevant for some very specific use cases. Latency is ...
  • Both good drives. Not as fast as Samsung, but solid nonetheless. Yes, it does make a difference and the system doesn't matter all that much. Always get one with the dram cache. Price diff is small, ...
  • Check out this vid on why cards sag, and what to pay attention to. And how to fix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liChy76nQJ4
  • What are these webapps you are talking about and who uses them? I don't know anyone that uses webapps. not even my 80 yr/o dad. Though it depends on the definition of webapps I guess, but that's ...
  • The only difference between clean and in place upgrades these days is that installed programs and user profiles are not deleted. The entire windows directory is moved/renamed and replaced with a ...
  • Replied in Windows 11.
    People need to stop making a fuss about Microsoft and Apple about privacy, particularly when they use services from Facebook/Meta and or Google. There is a very distinct difference between the two ...
  • Replied in Windows 11.
    That's because there is and will be no upgrade doomsday. W11 is nothing much more than W10 with a new name and a UI update. The one major difference between the two is that on W11 certain security ...
  • Replied in Update 1
    SSDs are always a little over provioned, so in case a cell goes bad it can be marked as such and a new cell can be assigned from the over provisioned space.
  • I use the (free) DisplayCal software to calibrate and experienced no issues in W10, W11 or Linux calibrating using my i1 hardware.
  • Logic says It should, but it isn't. Seriously. A 10tb wd USB drive is $50 cheaper than the 10tb wd red it contains,right now on Amazon. And more if you go for the 14tb version. For each to decide ...
  • Yeah I know it is counter intuitive, but it really is a thing these days particular with the NAS crowd. The WD single drive 10TB or 14TB external drives let you save hundreds of $$ compared to ...
  • If you can clean up more space is very much dependent on where that space is used. If it is used for program files, and its software you need, you are pretty much SOL. If it is leftovers from ...
  • Yes. It depends on what you need and how valuable your data is to you, but typically yes. Why? Typically, external drives by manufacturers like WD are cheaper than a bare drive of the same type and ...
  • This is funny how?
