comment Toshiba P775-S7215 with a broken wireless button?
I went looking for the wireless card in case it came down to temporarily taping one of the pins. I thought I'd bust out some compressed air while I was in there. There are two hatches on the bottom, one smaller square one and a larger L-shaped one. The smaller square one has nothing under it except for empty space and a screw, the larger L-shaped one allows access to some bits of motherboard, the HD and the RAM. No sign of a discrete card from the bottom. I hope it's not under the keyboard, I really don't want to open it up that much.

What kind of Internet connection do you have and how is it set up? DSL? Cable? Got a wireless router? If so, what kind?

What filesystem are we dealing with? HPFS+? Or something else?

Can we get the exact model for the array?

comment Which RAID level gives me protection against bit errors?
You have to consider where the bit flip will occur. If you're not using ECC RAM and a bit gets flipped before it is written to the array...

As for goalpost shifting, the OP didn't mention an adversary, so the goal was a bit ambiguous to start with.

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
Overwriting with random data is better than overwriting with with zeroes, especially with flash devices. The controller might try to optimize the latter away, while hopefully the former actually forces writes. Physical destruction might be cool, if the threat model actually warrants it, but to be thorough, wipe first, smash second.
