comment Backup to external drive with full disk encription and bit rot prevention
The only major feature I can see that Btrfs has that ZFS doesn't is the ability to change the redundancy levels of non-mirror device sets without recreation. With ZFS, you are stuck with the redundancy level you pick originally. This is the difference between home setups being grown piecemeal, and enterprise setups being set up in large swatches with advance planning. For backups, that feature difference should not be a major consideration; you can still grow your setup just as easily in either.

comment Backup to external drive with full disk encription and bit rot prevention
ZFS questions tend to get more love on Server Fault. @alesc, I prefer ZFS over Btrfs because ZFS has seen plenty of real-world use (and failures) outside of experimental setups, and particularly for the scenario you are asking about their feature sets are comparable or ZFS is better. I'd personally prefer a single partition with copies=2 and letting ZFS handle the redundancy, but two partitions should work as well and in specific failure modes may be more reliable, as stated in my answer. (If you test your backups regularly, as you should, then this should not be a major decision point.)

Hi user491485. Unfortunately, software recommendation questions are off topic here on Super User as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam.

Please edit your question to include SMART data, ideally from both drives.

comment My SSD drives have a very slow write speed (800MB read / 5MB write!)
Please oh please don't defragment SSDs. Fragmentation is a problem with rotational media because of seek latency, and SSDs have practically zero seek latency. Defragmenting SSDs, in the best of cases, will have no effect whatsoever.

comment Unable to Boot Ubuntu OS of Cloned VM
If you feel images will make your question easier to understand or answer, just post them anywhere and include a link in your question. Someone will edit them in properly. Indeed it looks like your kernel is not being booted with the quiet parameter.

comment Unable to Boot Ubuntu OS of Cloned VM
Try removing any quiet and similar parameters from the kernel command line, and see if you get more detailed error output. Modern distributions usually boot in quiet mode; in non-quiet mode, the kernel is much more verbose, and this can be a highly useful debugging aid. In this particular case, my first suspect would be loadable modules, but it's hard to say based on only what you have provided.

comment Windows 10 no wifi + cant find registry key
With this information, we have hopes of being able to suggest a solution that might work for you. Note that questions should be specific enough that an authoritative answer is possible; see the quick site tour. Once you have a bit more reputation, you will be able to participate in Super User Chat, where we might be able to help you work out how to phrase your question and what information might be needed. As it stands, I have voted to put your question on hold because we simply cannot give you an answer based on the information you have provided so far. See superuser.com/help/closed-questions

comment Windows 10 no wifi + cant find registry key
Hi jack moran. We'll probably be happy to help you, but we simply cannot debug your networking issues for you. I recommend that you edit your question to clarify a few things. (A) What exactly, specifically, is the problem? (B) How did you determine that this is the problem? (C) What have you tried to do in order to fix the problem? (D) What led you to take those steps? (E) What were the results of each of those steps, in turn?

comment In Windows' Run command line, how to open “My computer”?
Actually, I believe Windows special-cases any sequence of N>2 . to mean "N minus 1 levels up". So .. means "one level up", ... means "two levels up", .... means "three levels up", and so on, from the current working directory. Don't know if this is actually documented somewhere, though, so might not be something you want to rely on.

comment Why is the battery dead inspite of the full charge the previous day?
The question is tagged windows-10, and the OP specifically mentions Windows 10. Maybe this answer that is written for Windows 7 helps, but it would be better if you edit to at the very least make that explicit.

comment How can I make two files open automatically in a .bat file?
I don't have time to write up a proper answer, but you most likely want START. As a beginning, in a command line, type start /?. (If someone wants to take this comment and make an answer out of it, feel free to.)
