comment My 1TB WD Caviar Green HDD is making a short high-pitched sound every half second
@Mitch Given that the WD DLG seems to be hanging on a specific disk location, it could still be bad sectors. Get yourself a copy of SpinRite.

comment How to copy files and folders in clipboard to all connected removable drives?
I'm unclear why you say that you have to copy from the clipboard, it sounds like you just have to copy some files from source folder A to target folders B,C,D,E,... In that case, some suggestions are here: superuser.com/questions/32630/…

comment Calculating least number of light fixtures for a run
This question is off-topic here. The part of your question about how to implement your algorithm in Excel would be valid on SuperUser. The part of your question about the algorithm itself would be valid on Programmers.

Maannnn, same issue here. After prompting the admin to check DHCP leases he found out we had many 'infinite' leases eating up the space.
