Maybe partition still exists, but Debian can't mount it, or something was messed in MBR. Try booting from Windows LiveCD/DVD/USB, or plug your drive to another computer which runs Windows. Then use diskmgmt.msc on that computer (press Win+R -> discmgmt.msc), or partition tools (such as Partition Magic, Acronis tools) to find/recover/work with partitions. And ...

It appears that the Icy Box website used to be icybox.de and that that URL now forwards to raidsonic.de . Did they get bought or have they renamed themselves? I don't know. The English page for that website is www.raidsonic.de/en/home.php . The web page for the IB-254U3 is http://www.raidsonic.de/en/products/details.php?we_objectID=9032 . The PDF for that ...

Laptop purchases are always ridiculously complex these days, especially with hardware manufacturers making the push for thinner, lighter and cheaper. The sound you're hearing is either a co-processor kicking in or the hard drive spinning up to optimal speeds to meet the demands. For future reference, you need to look at a few things that generally ...

The only thing that I do is browsing Internet. Javascript can be a CPU killer. If you have many tabs open, or the few tabs you have open are working with a lot of Javascript it could be a cause. Badly written Javascript can cause things to be slower over time. If you completely restart your browser and notice an improvement in speed, this could be ...

Check out ExactFile. It's freeware that will calculate a hash on files and store the hash values. You can then recheck at any time to see if any bits have changed. I have used it on 300 GB at a time and use it for many data transfers and it works beautifully. Very easy to use, too. Note: it will READ your data and confirm that it is still all there but ...

About Windows XP, it will never boot, because all the hardware has been changed, and now windows has an incorrect drivers for all the hardware. About Ubuntu, i don't know! But, it looks like you have a hardware issue.

Quack Quixote is likely correct. I imagine your computer may be detecting them at just slightly different times leading to one being considered sda rather than what you expect (sdb). If this is the case, the fix is simple: don't use /dev/sdX references in your bootloader config or fstab. I prefer using the disk label, but some prefer using UUIDs. Can you ...

Your IT department may be right. mSATA does not work in any given miniPCI slot. From wikipedia: The connector is similar in appearance to a PCI Express Mini Card interface,[43] and is electrically compatible; however, the data signals (TX±/RX± SATA, PETn0 PETp0 PERn0 PERp0 PCI Express) need a connection to the SATA host controller instead of the ...

You can`t predict the compression size. The only chance I see is to try this: 7z a -t7z -mx9 -o f:\outputDirectory e:\inputDirectory Compress all the files, and just wait if its finishes or abort due to the lack of spaaace. Note that 7z.exe needs to be in your path for this command. Alternativly you can specify the full path to the 7z.exe ...

No, it even slows down the SSD dramatically: Without RAPID mode, the Samsung 840 EVO sits high in the standings. Enabling the DRAM cache drops the drive way down the list, though.

After the initial install I believe Windows removes it's generic drivers to stop software bloat, your best bet is to either re-install windows OR do a system restore to the time when your system still had those generic drivers, system restore should not remove your files but it may remove installed programs. I suggest a backup before attempting system ...

Firstly, you can try to take ownership of the folder with windows itself. You must be an administrator for this to work! So, here goes.

OK, first of all, make sure you are able to access the correct directories. In Windows 7, in my user directory C:\users\[username]\, I see two "My Documents" but one is like a symlink or something and doesn't let even me "open" it. In the above screenshot, the selected "My Documents" is the directory that lets me get to all my files. The second one (with ...

The simple answer is you can't. I have hard drives that have been on for 10 years and work great and drives that have last for days, weeks or months. With good S.M.A.R.T. reports the chances of the dying today are low, but present. Lasting another 1.5 years would be anyone's guess, but only realistically a guess. The best you could do to try and measure it ...

If you clone an HDD 1:1 and the new HDD won't boot, you might need to fix the MBR because it didn't got cloned properly. In the Hirens Bood CD, there's a tool called mbrfix which will fix the master boot record of a harddrive. Use with care though. The command would be something like: mbrfix /listdrives to get the drivenumber, and then: mbrfix /drive:0 ...

Get a repair disc and run a chkdsk, something like Hirens Boot CD might be worth using to do the fix.

Windows does a lot of configuration and optimization to do with the hardware abstraction layer during the initial install. If you pulled it from a sata drive set to IDE mode, it will want to run on the new AHCI setup as IDE, which won't work. You'll need to either run windows setup again and do a repair install, or re-apply the original image over the top ...

It really depends on what you are doing Scenario 1: You have a bunch of data to store on your computer, want to be able to run programs fast, but aren't particularly concerned about the speed at which they open (or the speed at which the computer turns on.) You also tend to run many programs at once. go with the 16 gb of ram. This will ensure top notch ...

SSD, would make more of a difference in general use. 8gb is enough, and 16gb would only be useful if you were running multiple vm's at the same time but with a slow disk that would be painful. I would shop further around as well, as I recently got a 256b ssd from Crucial.

i think you should go for Second option 16 GB RAM, SSD Drive is faster than 5400 rpm hard drive but if you choose 16 GB ram with 5400 rpm hard drive it would be good for running VMware machine.

I too leave my computer running for days and weeks, going into hibernate, with loads of Chrome tabs open. I also find that it generally slows down, and Chrome eats up all my memory. I generally try to shut down tabs that taking up loads of memory, which you can kind of work out with the Chrome Task Manager (shift-escape) I think it is a combination of a ...

Yes you can use the Sata3 SSD. Yes you can use the HDD as an external drive via sata or usb assuming it receives power somehow, the most common way to do this is to purchase an enclosure for it.

On the source disk, generate md5 hashes: md5sum *.avi >my_avi_files.md5 This will generate a file with one line for each file. Each line contains the md5sum and the file's name. An example of such a file is: 58ba3b679b03c1deb6e30918311af726 boxed-correct.avi cecfda865db60d3cf09a68c7f2030e9e boxed-delete.avi c373735b9c231d86244b28f3be9403e8 ...

I noticed that several people may be misinterpreting the Windows recommendation and statements. The fact is, (as someone had said early in the topic), you can improve your systems performance by moving the Page File to a different physical drive. I have 5 drives in my computer, (2 500GB SSD's and 3 1TB HDD’s), and have moved the Page File from the 500GB SSD ...

Yes you can in theory, but multibooting Windows is heaps trickier than Linux. Load Windows first, then load your Linux distros. It just comes down to setting up GRUB2 properly I should think. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/how-to-install-and-boot-windows-on-an-external-usb-hard-drive.116114/

I would recommend against it. Here's why: Different pc's can have different hardware. Even if you buy an HP machine with type xxxxx, and you buy the same HP with the same type a half year later, chances are that the hardware in the pc is not exactly the same as the one you bought before. Cloning will work obviously but the pc will have additional hardware ...

The Seagate ST500DM002 hard disk is SATA III, while the Intel 945G specs only mention SATA II. It seems that your hard disk is too recent for that board. A SATA III disk is said to work on a SATA II adapter at SATA II speeds, but maybe this doesn't work with your board, or that Windows is using the wrong driver. You should at least try to upgrade your ...

Hard drive spin-up/spin-down operations are times when the read/write heads are likely to get stuck: When the hard drive is spinning normally, the heads are so close to the platters that they are designed to "float" on a cushion of air that occurs when the platters spin at 5400 RPM. [1] When a drive is powered on, before this cushion of air is established, ...

This bug/error can be circumvented by simply rotating your screen. Most likely your system is working 100% correct behind the "please wait" screen. What you need is to be able to launch the Task Manager and kill the process responsible. Do the following steps: Hit Ctrl+Alt+← to rotate the screen 90 degrees, making the display area narrow. Restart. ...

I has had a very similar problem with HP Elitebook 8460p, win7 prof. Quad core, for a long while. Today I had time to trouble shoot it. It is the caddy. My windows and HP drivers are regularly updated. I had used a 5200rpm 1TB Samsung drive earlier (at that time I suspected it may be the drive causing the problem) and several months ago I replaced that with ...

You want to copy files one by one, but with all I/O done asynchronously. Meaning that the app would issue several read requests at once and the OS will complete them as it can and signal the app that a block is ready. The app will then issue a write request and, again, the OS will complete it on its own schedule and notify the app when it's done. In ...

You need to convert the partition table type from MBR to GPT so Windows will see the full capacity. Open command prompt in the Start menu. Type diskpart in the command prompt and press enter. Type list disk and press enter. Type select disk # ( #-the disk you want to convert) and press enter. Type detail disk and press enter. It will give you a list ...

For the single-drive to single-drive backup scenario you're talking about here, your maximum speed will be how fast you can pull data from the source drive. If that data is well fragmented, there won't be a difference between parallel or serial retrieval. If that data is largely contiguous within the files themselves, there will be some difference between ...

You cannot eject the startup disk, since it is in use. If your MacBook is a new enough model (one released after OS X 10.7 Lion) or has had its firmware updated since then, it can boot into Internet Recovery mode. Essentially, this will boot it from a disk image served over the internet. To invoke it, power the MacBook on, then immediately hold down ...

I see the Recovery partition in your list volume output. Recovery partitions aren't assigned drive letters because they're Recovery partitions and not meant to be accessed in Windows Explorer as data volumes. It looks perfectly normal to me. In addition, one of your DVD drives has been assigned the D drive letter, so unless you manually assigned D to the ...

Your edit tells me enough to tell you that it is not missing. There simply is no drive letter attached to it (and therefor it does not show up in explorer), which is not needed anyway. The recovery partition is only used when you boot into recovery mode. Depending on your brand and model it can be a variety of keys. For example, with HP it usually is F11, ...

Those are not outlets on the graphics card, they are inputs. Modern PCI-E graphics cards require one or two six-pin or eight-pin power inputs direct from your power supply. Modern (mid-to-high-end at least) graphics cards do not draw power from the motherboard. Your SATA drives also draw power directly from the power supply; your power supply should have ...

I am now exactly in the same situation: I want to use a few old hard drives, which happen to be of the same size, to set up a RAID in my newly bought Synology DS414 NAS.

Anytime you want to work with partitions in Windows, use Disk Management.

You can use Minitool Partition Wizard to repartition your drive to a single NTFS/FAT32 drive which Windows can read. The same tool can be used to format the remaining 3GB of space. Unfortunately the built-in Disk Management snap-in (diskmgmt.msc) cannot partition drives which has partitions using filesystems not recognized by Windows.
