  1. I have no idea how Android works or its file sizes etc. But I have a hard time believing that there's any perceived speed difference amongst any of the top branded cards.

    Seagate Exos 7E8 vs 5E8

    We just gave away two of those Archive 8TB drives. Sloooooooow.
  3. I might be being dense, but what does this app do? I mean you could use virtualization to set up a VM and run it.

    Portable USB HDD vs Powered HDD

    Functionally makes no difference. The portables are a little more simple I suppose in the event the power cables fail or someone wants to read the contents of the drive in a bank vault or something.
  5. With all of these have you considered going to rack mount systems? May be more space efficient at this point. Either way, Supermicro probably has a few options, are you looking to build a system or buy something complete off the shelf?

    Will it fit?

    Good answer...yes they should generally work but as noted, not all will in every case.

    Install Win10 on new SSD

    Are you trying to dual boot?
  9. What drive? Have you run the manufacturer tools to check it?
  10. Definitely doesn't sound normal. Assume you've updated BIOS, firmware, etc?
  11. Checked cables, ports, etc too? Sounds like a faulty piece somewhere in the line.

    News comments now link to reddit?

    The forums just haven't been engaged with much, we have more engagement with Reddit, so we're experimenting there. Revamped the podcast...doing all sorts of things to see if we can better figure out a way to engage with our audience.

    Seagate Nytro 3530 SSD Review

    Can you provide more details on config? RAID type, workload, etc.?

    Azure Arc Announced

    Strong move by MSFT...an easier to manage control plane will continue to make cloud adoption more simple.
  15. Let's chill on the faster talk, that's not Micron's strength historically. And no, this is definitely not in the PS5.

    Transfer car HDD

    Did we just get sucked back to 2003?

    NetApp Storage Training

    Maybe we should sign up
  18. If it were my money I'd not buy anything other than the Samsungs.

    Transfer car HDD

    Wait, how did it get there in the first place?
  20. There's not any difference I'm aware of, but the economics of tape for that role is still much better.
  21. Hammerspace updated their cloud-native data services to add self-service data recovery and global undelete as well as a slew of other new features. Hammerspace was founded just last year in 2018 and is a software-as-a-service company that focuses on reducing the complexity of adopting hybrid, multi-site, or Kubernetes workflows Hammerspace Adds Global Undelete Service
  22. Today in Seoul, South Korea, Intel held its Memory & Storage day, inviting StorageReview on site. The main focus of the show was for the company to showcase some of the milestones that its Optane technology has been able to hit since it was released. Though, there were a handful of new announcements along the way both for Optane as well as other storage technology including 144-Layer 3D NAND.

    Best 1TB+ HDD

    I'd almost rather you hunt for used on eBay or some such so you can get two in a RAID1 pair. Assuming the data is important to you.
