For unplugging, the OS will sync the data during the unmount operation. Thus, if the disk is unmounted (assuming you in fact do have full hardware support) you can power off the disk then unplug it without risk of data loss or corruption. A partition map can be corrupted by an incomplete write operation. If it was just the partition table that was ...

If you unplug a flashdrive during a write operation, the file will become damaged and you lose its contents. Next time you open it, it'll give you an error. If the write operation occurs on the file table itself, it may cause the flashdrive to become labelled as empty telling you that you need to format the drive.

Rufus works very well to create these installers. You can get it from https://rufus.akeo.ie/ From the site It can be especially useful for cases where: you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.) you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS ...

On the assumption that this is an IP camera, this can definitely be done. You simply need to ensure that the camera network is on a different subnet to the network the USB Ethernet adaptor connects to - ie the IP address ranges are different. (This answer assumes the Camera network interface does not make use of a default gateway - this is a ...

Same problem was due to a corrupted image file of the operating system. First check the MD5 sum and check if it matches the one that is provided by your ISO provider. If they do not match then most likely the cause is this. Sometimes the way you extract the contents of the image file may cause problems on the installation. Try using Rufus with its ISO ...

It is possible to enter sleep mode via hdparm: # hdparm -Y device After entering sleep mode, heads are parked, spindle stopped and buffer disabled. Also, HDD needs to receive hard/soft reset, to start again. Since all drivers are off, I assume it is safe to power the HDD off. (for further information see page 14: ...

Autorun only has two states; on or off, so it's an all-or-nothing deal. Your only configuration options are what drives to enable or disable it on, but you can't whitelist specific applications that Autorun can launch. However, since Autorun is a feature of Explorer, not Windows, it shouldn't apply to you because you are not using Explorer as your shell. ...

I give up trying this. It is not working either with 16.04 LTS which is using 4.4 linux kernel. And on Windows 8.1 with proper driver ended with failed too.

The best way to transfer files from a Samsung device to your computer when it is not being recognized as an MTP is to use Samsung SideSync. Samsung SideSync has the MTP driver built into the program so it will recognize your device as a MTP. I made a video on how to transfer media files with Samsung SideSync: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBXaL8-MPXc

I have now successfully installed Windows 10. I had to first install and activate Windows 8 (Windows 7 would also have worked) and then ran the USB created by the official installation creator from there. I selected the 'Keep Nothing' option which allowed a clean install, and followed the prompts respectively.

There are some on the market now, like this one for thunderbolt 2: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1007816-REG/sonnet_echo_exp_se2_echo_express_se_ii.html If you have USB 3.0 there are limited commercial options - things like the ASUS XG Station 2 which uses 2 usb connections for its external pcie Nvidia card, but accepts other cards (apparently just ...

Doing a Google image search on that enclosure, it's using a non-standard A-type connector. That's not even the official USB Super Speed logo on the case. A proper USB enclosure should be using a B-type connector. If the device breaks that standard, it makes me wonder what other standards they also broke. It apparently doesn't conform properly to the USB ...

You can put more files on there (which you could've found out yourself). The drive will still function as a recovery disk, whether you have other files on there or not. Edit: I can't comment so: This is not an issue, it's a question.

If you want to install windows anyway then simply create small partition and copy .wim file into that. After you have done it simply revert back. Also I want to know how are you making WINPE image exactly ? When you are making Winpe, is your pendrive connected ?

There are reports of a reduced reconnect time if you shut off the Allow computer to turn off this device to save power under Device Manager - Properties - Power of the two USB devices. It's worth a try, but Windows just likes to take its sweet time.

okay, you cannot change the boot order from within windows because the boot order is in the BIOS. once you boot up an OS, you cannot boot another one at the same time, so you will need to boot your usb first. enter the BIOS and change the boot order that way. it depends on your computer, specifically your motherboard. look online to see how you access the ...

If you want to "wipe" your disk (it doesn't REALLY wipe everything, unless you use clean all instead, but it destroys the partition table and so): Type exit again to leave the command prompt. Then Turn off your PC and boot again to start the installation. Or you can delete the unwanted partition one by one:

In a practical sense, a drive can die at any time. Lifespan also depends on many more things than 'drive type A over drive type B'.

Summary of the above comments : The problematic devices are namely the mouse and the keyboard. Deleting their drivers and resorting to the Windows generic drivers has much improved the switch time.

Yes, all Intel-based Macs can boot and run OS X from a USB mass storage device. It doesn't even require any special setup. Macs can boot and run from USB flash drives or HDDs the same way they can boot and run from internal SATA-attached HDDs or SSDs.

This is an interesting question, and I had to find it out myself on my MacBook with operating system "OS X El Capitan". You have to differentiate between unallowed characters in the finder / applications using the finder (e. g. text editor) versus the command line.

If speed is not an issue a simple solution is to use a connection that limits the USB device to USB2 (or lower), e.g., a hub or a cable that does not support USB3 yet.

Most cheap USB drives & other flash media (cards like SD/CF, etc) have estimated "lifetime writes" of 1,000 or 10,000 or maybe even 100,000 so it sounds like you're trying to avoid writes to keep them useable for as long as possible. Writing a static ISO and booting live should minimize writes, as long as you don't have a "persistent" file or partition ...

I don't believe so at least with out some really special hardware. You would probably be better off getting a cheap HP7540 or another thin client with an expansion bay and using that. The problem is that the bandwidth on the card will likely exceed the USB spec unless you are talking 3.0, and if you are talking for a video card then probably not. You can run ...

There's Transfer Express from ASUS, but it is not on the market, and probably never will be. And it works only if both your boards are ASUS. Also it's over 3.0, which is already outdated since the intro of 3.1, which the link is testing using 2 SSDs in RAID 0 to get higher than 500 MB/s. There are videos on YouTube for the Transfer Express device. Just get ...

Your mileage may vary, USB Extension cables can be very very iffy. If you extend longer than 3 meters you NEED to have a repeater (or your OS may throw "unknown device" errors). You can use a 3 meter extension cable then a 5 meter one with a repeater connected and a device on the other end may connect. But if you put a 5 meter cable with a repeater first, ...

Switch off any on-access virus scanning. That also slows down enormously.

You might check if you disabled the on-access scanning of the virusscanner. Otherwise it checks all the files you copy, and that slows down the process.

Serial over USB 2.0. Is it really faster than serial? Your terminology is sloppy. "Serial over USB 2.0" could refer to using USB-to-RS232 adapters, or refer to CDC/ACM. Your last reference to "serial" presumably is to RS-232. My question is: Does this number 115200 really represent the number of bytes per second that can be maximally transferred ...

I still think the best idea is to have a USB cable extension run into a small lock box, like a hand gun lock-box, and keep the USB drive inside that. Someone would have to grind a 5mm hole at the edge of door for the USB extention cable to fit through. Most hand-gun boxes can be mounted securely to a desk so that's why I'd look for one of those. I doubt any ...

You will be able to boot in by using Rufus. Prepare the usb device in Rufus. Select GPT for UEFI only. Select fat32. Set your bios to default settings. (This enables all uefi options and secure boot) You can now install windows 10 in uefi mode.
