comment Why buy Network Attached Storage (NAS)? Why not just a server PC?
@DetlevCM Some good points. I don't want to get into price discussions, but I probably want 4 HDDs so the case alone means that I am unlikely to be able to use a 167€ PC

comment Why buy Network Attached Storage (NAS)? Why not just a server PC?
It's for home. Not a business style "server", more a "file server", but in fact mainly for backups. Being able to use it as a PC would be a small bonus, but a relatively rare occurrence.

comment Can see internal drive on other workgroup PC, but not external
Well, I don't want passwords within my workgroup, so "full access for everyone". I think the telling point is that I can see the server & its 3 drives, but can only access the internal drive. What's the difference there?

comment How do I more efficiently reinstall Windows?
For a start, they slipstream all of those updates, on a regular basis, so that they only have one complete image to install, with no updates.

comment How to delete a keyboard layout in Windows 10
In Widows 10, on the Control Panel, I do not see "Clock, Languages and Regions". I see Language and Region as two separate items, but I don@t see the option that you mention.

Only the physical keyboard, but not the keyboard layout :-(

comment Create multiple paragraphs without manually adding the paragraph tags in Notepad++?
What do you consider to be a paragraph? A single carriage return? Two? Notepad++ lets you search and replace these using regular expressions, so, for assistance, you could replace \n\n with <br>

Or, since you talk about converting to HTML, do you mean inserting <br> tags?

comment My Spam Trap Caught A Company - How Legitimate Is Their Response?
I have done this for years and have never yet received a single spam which might indicate that a company had sold my address to a third party (pretty disappointing, in a way ;-)

comment Is it possible to delete password generator profiles in KeePass?
Sorry that I can't help, but don't you think that you will get better help at the Keepass forum? sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion

comment Is it possible to delete password generator profiles in KeePass?
"I would like to be able to use a button or menu item in the GUI to remove password generator profiles while KeePass is running, instead of exiting and launching a text editor. How can this be done?" - edit the source code". Of course, then you have to maintain your fork as they update. So it is probably best to request a new feature from the program’s authors.

comment Seeking Lenovo G70-70 drivers as .INF, not .EXE
Because, a I said, I bought it in Germany, where we don't have to pay the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… I was considering using Linux, still might if I can't get those drivers. In which case, why should I be forced to pay for o/s that I don't want?

comment Seeking Lenovo G70-70 drivers as .INF, not .EXE
That's the whole point of the question - I can find Lenovo drivers, but only as .EXE, not as .INF & when I use 7-zip to extract from the .EXEs I get some files, which the Windows setup doesn't recognize, none of which are .INF

SATA comparability sounded like a great idea. Alas, it did not help :-(

I am stuck at point 3 - the Windows install is paused and asking for a driver(it doesn't say which). I only have the .EXes

comment How do I remove an unmounted volume from desktop?
Well, it should appear as a file in ~/Desktop. So open a terminal and try to delete it from there ...
