comment Ghosting vs. Filled Buffer
Your question still doen't make sense, both of those are real and can really happen. Ghosting has is a side effect of how keyboards are wired internally, buffers are used when a computer cannot respond to keyboard input fast enough.

If your email provider offers a web-based option, you should use that.

Some do, some don't. They are not all the same.

comment How to lock the permission of a folder?
Are the other users admin also? Are these files on your local macine or a fileserver? you need to provide more details about where the files are stored and the Windows privileges you and the other users have. Oh, and if you are really paranoid skip the permissions, use encryption.

comment In a batch, how to specify a path that use a volume name instead of a drive letter?
It sounds like your C# tool is pretty stupid then. I would find it very difficult to trust any tool to perform backups that can't handle a simple UNC.

comment Is an external USB3 disk really almost as fast as an internal SATA disk?
My guess is that you should see no difference. USB3 is probably going to have more overhead since it needs to support devices other thing storage. Also consider that aside from flash drives almost no hard disks actually have a USB connection on them. A typical USB hard disk is a SATA disk with a USB-SATA converter in it. That converter could add additional latency and slow things down. So I suspect the answer is that it depends on how well the USB to SATA converter works.

5Gbit/s is the speed of a wire, not the speed of a disk. It seems unlikely that you could saturate the link speed of the USB3, or SATA cable with a single disk.

comment Disk is apparently in use by the system
Why are you trying to format, and then raid? Normally you setup the partition/raid/volume and then the filesystem.

How old are they? Lead acid batteries don't survive long when they don't have a trickle charger attached.
