comment How can I keep folders synchronized between several machines over my home network?
Currently, I manually, periodically use robocopy, when I know the remote server is available - this handles the "stuff that's changed", "not via Internet" and "no quota" requirements, but less so coping if the network is interrupted/not connected, nor running unattended.

That requirement is based on the issue that the laptops might be used by a different user (wife, son, etc.), who might not have permissions to the folders I want to backup

comment How can I keep folders synchronized between several machines over my home network?
I already have a NAS - my issue is automatically copying files to it (or another PC which is always connected, and can sync to the NAS on behalf of the laptops), when reconnecting to the network.

comment How to resolve error 0x80070103 when updating Nvidia drivers in Windows 10?
Have you seen windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows-8/… ? - this error normally indicates "you might be trying to install a driver that's already installed, or a driver that might be less compatible than one you already have installed on your PC"

comment Google chrome shows Chinese/strange encoding characters on pages
That looks like you're looking at the Japanese language version, so which character(s) are not as you expect?

comment Why does Chrome show the same 0x167F unicode character differently in 2 different places?
Because the font(s) may have been updated with the OS (in a similar way to the way Segoe was between Windows 7 and 8). There may still be a limited set of fonts with the character, which may be why you're seeing so few variants.

comment Does Outlook.com (office online) offer the Destkop Email Alert/Notification feature?
If you were using Windows 8 (or later), I'd suggest pointing the mail app at your outlook.com account, then you'd get toast notifications of new mail, and meeting reminders.
