comment Is Tar a suitable archiving solution for numerous backups of data from the same folder?
Why do you want to limit yourself to tar? Especially on Windows I would prefer something else.

comment PC always shutdown consistently after 2-3 hours
So you say you have installed Windows 7 next to Linux Mint, and this happens with both systems? Make that more clear in your question! This is a hardware problem, and I would guess the CPU is the culprit. Either in Mint or W7, try to log CPU temperature, or better log all temperatures and see if that tells you anything.

comment Connection refused for port 80 in VirtualBox. But only for CentOS VM
Have you started Apache on Centos? It doesn't automatically start after installation like with Ubuntu. I use Virtualbox a lot, and usually install a desktop VM instead of the server version if it's for local use only. It gives the same functionality, and a lot more convenience. You can use Firefox in the VM itself, as well as all the other GUI tools.

comment Public ip address showing in Hong Kong
Contact Google about this. They will reply to such a report and probably fix it, if the problem is on their side, which is likely.

First recover files, then mess with the disk!

comment Recover Partitions deleted by rm
I used Photorec to recover files (all types of files, not just photos despite the name). I haven't used Testdisk. I didn't have problems with I/O, and formatted the disk in the end. I don't think Testdisk will fix your I/O problems. Testdisk and Photorec can be used to recover files, other tools exist to fix or analyze disk and I/O problems.

comment Is this a bad idea to use a SSD in the slim bay as the primary hard disk?
In the EU this will not void warranty. Besides that - you can't know if the speed is the same without testing this.

comment How to extract value (hour / minute) from a data field in MS Access?
You should give examples of the data you're using. We don't know what format the data is, or maybe it's unix time? Please put some effort in your question!
