comment Anyone really understand Windows File History in Windows 10?
No, it's not based on the disk capacity. There's a fixed maximum size in the settings. The drive could be 6 TB and the limit could still be as low.

There's a disk space limit (similar to recycle bin). Maybe that's the culprit?

comment Why should we wipe disks multiple times?
To add: many modern SSD drives typically use internal drive encryption, so to wipe the drive all you have to do is recreate a new encryption key, which will make recovery impossible no matter the actual disk usage.

comment Bind application to a specific network interface
Is there some specific goal you're trying to achieve? By default, the game doesn't need any incoming connections to work properly. Are you trying to cheat or record/playback games?

comment Windows 7 not showing connected android device's internal storage in explorer
@nilkash Have you tried switching mode back and forth? How about reinstalling/changing drivers? Or is the device not even shown in Device Manager?

comment Insalling Windows 10 on a laptop with 32GB space
You're eligible for the upgrade as long as you start setup from within Windows. It doesn't matter where/how. Just don't do a clean install by accident by booting off the USB drive.

comment Not able to ping to IPV6 address from Windows 7
AFAIK that just forces IPv6 to be preferred, but it's not an absolute requirement. Not 100% sure without looking it up though.

comment Will Windows 8.1 on an old hard drive work on a new machine?
@Skipher Just to note: depending on where you live, the OEM ructions might not apply and you might be able to reactivate it just fine. If in doubt, ask Dell.
