  1. My home insurance is nearly $1,400 a year on a $110,000 house on a few acres. Please tell me who provides your insurance, so that i may ask them for a quote? ~ Thank you. "Thank you, Admin. Where are some tests of 2.5" HDD side by side, with graphs of heat and noise production?"

    Where did my HDD capacity go?

    If you use tools to erase, such as "Eraser" then the data is encrypted and hidden on your system such as "Carbon Copy lossy encrypt assign never erase region", known as "CCleaner". Encrypted and hidden, not erased. Windows does the same with a hidden log of your ever action and data as compressed and hidden files, If you want an example, check the size of the "User" folder, then check the size of the folders in Dell Backup and Recovery. about 4GB on mine / with all the folders being less than 1GB. Strangely windows updates do not allow the PC to reveal this to the user. Try GParted or other Live OS environments and let me know what you learn. On XP i never had an OS partition greater than 20GB and that lasted for 2 years at a time. Every operating system i have contact with is less than < 1GB. So what the heck is all that other data?, hidden scratch pads?, on a Journal'ing HDD file structure? Despite what you see, all data moves to a new space on the HDD, that is what NTFS and most of those standards do. I noticed it when looking at firewall logs. Windows itself is a Micro Kernel (<32MB) and Monolithic Duplicate kernel = Hybrid OS. Android on my 8 CPU T-Mobile gaming phone is < 512MB, http://www.umi-zero.com/Specifications.html Android with NSA SELinux wrapper is 14.11GB on Shield Tablet (9GB OS kernal, 5GB of hijacked OS protect space) Have a peek, before it is "updated" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobile_infographics_tools.mydrive&hl=en I have no idea what the greater than 512MB region of all the operating systems is about? Why don't you look into it .... seriously. Confirm it with your eyes and not with rumors. = https://www.nsa.gov/research/_files/selinux/papers/x/img8.jpg <- this is what SELinux really looks like. Make sure you backup the NSA image. It does not show up in most searches in Google for SELinux.
  3. Thank you, Admin. Where are some tests of 2.5" HDD side by side, with graphs of heat and noise production? **** Based on your title .... you are more "in the loop" than myself. So this is just opinion: "since it is incredibly expensive." That is just a rumor. The people who own the tools to recover have to stay in business. Back before the invention of perpendicular magnetic fields, people would literally move the platter to a new device. Then in the earth 2000's someone developed record players with a laser, to read the fields. My Samsung P3 read and recover warranty was perhaps $10 a year for 3 year (About ~$30?). > Back in the day when the PS2 came out i visited this site .... I was young and heard of Fluid Dynamic Bearings from a Maxtor presentation. Based on the entirely false presentation from Maxtor that they were first to use this technology I recommended Maxtor FDBD to Sony before the Playstation 2, was released. I did not know Seagate was first and ran coolest = quietest. (Again i am not an employee of Sony, but to troubleshoot the issue i searched around, and found this website. It listed the thermal characteristic of various HDD. [Gee, wish i had been aware of who invested fluid bearing, and any resources that listed the thermal performance, as embedded and devices in homes without A/C are much different than the Meat Deli's most people work in.] Mister Kevin OBrien, Where may i find tested charts or graphs of 2.5" HDD compared side by side with Temperatures? My HDD from 1997 still run and work perfectly fine. But I do need tape backup solution. ~ >_> Thank you. Personal story; > in the 1990's I had a Ford Escort hatchback from the 1980's, Funny thing: Even when the battery was disconnected and reconnected, i would turn on the old push button radio, with SRAM (requires power) stations, and the stations would still be there because the magnetic fields were so old they had hardened the data stored to them. A device that is kept clean and not de-fragged will last longer, and store better than moving around. Experienced Perspective; We should back up data as if, Some Religion wants all the world's history moved to digital, as they use home microwaves rigged as parabolic transmission devices to cause the destruction or data loss of the world's greatest wisdom and first hand experience, as well as the destruction of research that might contradict lies the tell for a Metal Tithe which their Son Hero came on to Holy Ground and used violence to ban from the price of a White/ Vati, Canus/"Dog" Temples on Hills to plan war. (search the 1599 & 1560 Bible on www.bilbegateway.com for "Dog", to learn the truth.) Always pretend each time data moves you need magnetic cores on the lines to impair field induction and detect interruptions in the electro motive transmission of digital information. My current level, is only the use Cat 6 Shielded. So i try not to move data. Best wishes. Please champion M-Disc and send email asking for it to be certified as DVD-M and Blu-ray M. Data needs life.
  4. Hello. 1. Who makes the Coolest Running, Easiest to Recover Platter, 9.5mm, 2.5" HDD? This is for a: Dell Latitude E6400. P9600 CPU (Tempted to place a QX9300 in it.) 8GB of DDR2 800MHz Seeking, A. Coolest running HDD. HDD because there is no recovering from an SSD. None that i have found.... As a side note, my Samsung P3 was purchased with a service warranty that says they can recover a 2TB drive. For quite a while now it has been my fear that areal densities were making this impossible. 2. So which platters are the easiest to recover from? This laptop stores history from over 1200 years of life. 3. Are verticals fields better than older platters? 4. Should i invest in magnetic tape backup? 5. Is there a magnetic tape storage solution for backing up a laptop? 6. What ever happened to Home Server 2003? How do you protect and backup your data? 7. Is there an M-Disc drive bay solution for Dell products such as the E6400? I prefer Gateway and AMD, but someone smashed it. So i put this Dell together until Windows 10. 8. http://us.gateway.com/gw/en/US/content/group/notebooks ~ Who else makes LG M-DISC laptops?
