comment Intermittent ATA (read fpdma queued) errors and SMART errors in Ubuntu - Power supply or motherboard?
Well, for one thing, I would definitely make sure that those backups are fully up to date, just in case. Something is iffy.

Hi james. I'm sure this is annoying, but I don't see any information in your question that would help us diagnose your problem, nor any evidence of prior effort of your own to diagnose or solve the problem. Please have a look at How do I ask a good question? and then edit your question to include more detail.

comment Ubuntu btrfs snapshot cannot mv into /home
Please edit your question to include the output of btrfs subvolume list | grep /home, mount | grep /home, df | grep /home and uname -a, from both systems (clearly tagged so we can tell which one is which). This smells to me very much like either a kernel version (capability) difference or a file system hierarchy difference. (The btrfs command may require adjusting, but the idea is to get a list of btrfs' idea of what your /home and anything below it looks like.)

comment Cloning two internal HDDs on to one external HDD as a backup
The "so I can swap it with one of my internal HDDs (if only one fails)" part of the question.

comment Cloning two internal HDDs on to one external HDD as a backup
I know exactly what GnuPG is and what it does, I just don't see why you are adding that complexity when I see nothing in the OP's question that calls for it, and more so that doesn't (because as I read the question, OP wants to be able to simply swap out the original drive for the backup drive in case of failure).

Why would you be using GnuPG?

comment How come my computer does not establish an internet connection after restart until I reboot my home router?
What @Paul said. Look at the output of ipconfig /all when it doesn't work and compare it to the output of the same command when it does work. Also, try a tracert (traceroute) to some known good IP address. Google's 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 might be a decent choice for that.

comment Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3P motherboard won't start without second RAM module
@OleksiiTaran I don't know, but Gigabyte's web site and your experience would seem to support the conclusion that the motherboard cannot work with only a single DIMM installed. I have, however, not dug deeply into the manual and specs of your particular hardware.

comment Building a new desktop PC for running After Effects for under $500
You may be interested in following the Hardware Recommendations site proposal. It's still early in the process, but if it gets off the ground, it might cater to the type of question you are asking.

comment What to do when windows D partition has been deleted?
Second, since you are asking this, I am going to presume that you have no recent, known good backup of the data in question? (If you do, the easiest would probably be to just restore that backup.)

comment What to do when windows D partition has been deleted?
First of all, STOP RIGHT NOW and make sure you do not write anything to where that partition was. Don't use the new partition at all, and avoid doing any writes elsewhere if you can. There are ways to at least mostly get your data back, but they depend on no writes taking place in the meantime. Any writes to that partition will lower your chances of getting your data back.

comment A virusproof (ransomware…) strategy for backup on a NAS?
The problem with forcing the user to reboot the system in order to take a backup is that backups then cannot happen while the user is doing something else. The advantage is that backups cannot happen while the system is doing something else: they are guaranteed to be an internally consistent data set. Which one of these is more important depends on the use case. As an extreme example, I doubt any bank uses anything like the scheme proposed in this answer! Personally, I prefer for backups to happen in a regular, automated fashion, even if it means a slight risk of dataset inconsistency.

comment using smart cards for auth
What exactly are you looking for? If specific hardware suggestions, that is off topic here. If reseller suggestions, not only is that off topic but you'd also have to specify where you are located. If a list of features required to do what you are asking, at least state so. And so on. Please edit this question to, at the very least, be explicit about what you want us to tell you.

comment VBA script to delete website url from message body in outlook
Programming questions should go on Stack Overflow, but this one would be shot down there almost immediately for showing no effort in solving the problem yourself first. You should edit to include a lot more information, as per @CanadianLuke's comment above.

Do note that this is classic Mac OS. Mac OS X would use Unix-style line endings due to its Unix heritage.

comment Paste clipboard content into inputbox
While this may answer the question, it would be better if you edit this answer to explain how the code works and why it solves the OP's problem. That way, it might also be useful for other people looking to solve similar problems in the future.
