I've had really back luck with corruption if I pull the cord out while
Windows thinks it should be connected, where the /entire/ HDD is corrupted.


user error.

The data was still there - but it had to be recovered - the last time using
Recuva - but it has happened multiple times.


user error.

What I like about DVD is that it doesn't require power to work,


yes it does.

where the
power connectors of some of my HDDs (the older ones) is a PITA to
reproduce.


sata, pata and scsi are all standard.

Sure, I could disassemble the case and see what's inside and
then use the SATA/PATA/IDE to USB, but that still doesn't negate the fact
that Windows eats up the file system when/if you unplug it in a way that
Windows doesn't like (ask me how I know this).

The biggest problem with backup is that I have been burned by backing up to

both suffer the same failings under the same conditions.



Were you burned by having backed up to an *internal* HD? As far as I'm
concerned, that's better than no backup at all, but just barely.


I have never backed up to an /internal/ HDD, where I've been burned aplenty
by backing up to strange media (e.g., ZIP drives of the past) and to
removable media (e.g., USB sticks and USB drives) which tend to corrupt
themselves on Windows if you simply look at them askance.



If you say so. But I've done this on multiple computers in many
versions of Windows for many years, and I've never had a single
problem with my backups. If you have, I think it's very likely that
the reason is that you're doing something very much wrong.

Putting the new HDD in the SATA1 slot of the motherboard, I can boot off of
the new drive which has the latest Windows 10 Pro ISO installed.

Now that it's confirmed by the Microsoft Retail Store that the operating
system the Windows 10 update bricked is a goner, there's really nothing
left to do but back up the data and then format the disk as a new disk.

I don't need two terabytes, where I never even needed one terabyte, so, I
guess I'm going to learn how to RAID these things.


In my experience, RAID is quite fragile. I've learned through experience
to avoid it on my personal machines.

Isn't calling Coke "food" setting a pretty low bar? Hopefully, there was
a little bit more to this feeding thing than just a soft drink.

raid is definitely *not* fragile. it's extremely robust, although not
the best choice in every situation.

You have a valid point. In both visits, someone walked up to me asking if I
wanted something, and then they rattled off a list of those somethings.

I took a coke each time, but I don't remember what all those somethings
were.

Most were drinks, but I thought I heard cookies in the list, but I'd have
to go back to be sure.

The point was that they never offered anything at Apple visits.

Based on listening to the conversation about RAID from those of you who
have experience that I lack, I think I'll keep those snakes out of my
aquarium.

Thanks!

Since I now have far more disk space than I currently need, most likely,
I'll just dual boot with Ubuntu & Windows 10 using grub following one of
the many tutorials.

1. Install Windows 10 Pro
2. Install Ubuntu alongside Windows
3. Set Grub to choose either one by default

I just accidentally ran into this very simple way to transfer photos from
your phone to Windows (and back) without installing anything on either

1. I gave a few $130 LG Stylo 3 Plus phablets as gifts over Christmas and
as a direct result I inherited a handful of new-to-me older Android phones,
even though my main phone is a circa 2012 S3 which works just fine for me
but which I mount on Windows to use in the native Windows file explorer
using the Windows "Add a network location" wizard.

2. One of that handful of old phones is a circa 2014 Moto G, running
Android 5.1, which I just plugged into Windows where I was surprised the
phone immediately showed up as its own "XT104" USB drive.
http://wetakepic.com/images/2018/02/22/1xt104_a.jpg

3. Clicking on that drive shows the entire available file system mount
http://wetakepic.com/images/2018/02/22/2xt104b.jpg

4. That allows two way drag and drop between Windows and the phone
http://wetakepic.com/images/2018/02/22/3xt104c.jpg

5. Plugging it in again, I noticed an option pops up for something called
"Photos", which, seems to search the Android phone for photos to upload.
http://wetakepic.com/images/2018/02/22/4xt104d.jpg

6. That native "Photos" app then provides thumbnails to select which photos
to upload to previously defined directories and file name conversions on
Windows.
http://wetakepic.com/images/2018/02/22/5xt104e.jpg

7. The result is that, without installing anything on either the phone or
on Windows, it seems I can import anything I like using this Photos native
app.
http://wetakepic.com/images/2018/02/22/6xt104f.jpg

Generally I don't use Windows native apps (because they generally suck),
but this one doesn't seem to show any obvious drawbacks yet.

So I simply present this as a working system, that just works without
installing anything on either the phone or Windows, and ask if you know of
a better method of bi-directional drag and drop between your phone &
Windows?



Yep. That works, I am not sure about iPhones though. i had iTunes
installed on my computers. So I don't know it that also works with
iPhones.


Use “AirDrop” for iPhone photo transfer

Except that this so-called AirDrop (which was bought from Android
developers) brand of ad-hoc file-transfer services doesn't even /work/ in
the real world...

NOTE: Apple simply says the real world is "not supported".
