  1. I know a few people that have acer machines. They unfortunately, seem to have consistent quality control issues with their laptops. I could not recommend an acer product to anyone in good conscience.

    Protecting flash disks

    I think that if you do a good virus and spyware scan on the data that you are backing up to your flash drive, you should be fine. I will also agree with encrypting your files before storing them on portable media, But that would also depend on the type of data that you are storing on the flash drive.
  3. I have salvaged a few hard drives by performing a low level format on them and then create a new file system. This doesn't work all of the time, but it has worked for me a few times in the past.

    Logmein Remote Access

    I have been using the Logmein Free version for a couple of years now and I have been fairly impressed with it for being a free product. I recently tried Logmein Pro and Logmein Rescue as well. The Pro version has some nifty tools built into it such as registry editor, process listing and more. The Rescue version also works great but it basically only works on Windows.

    Seagate ST336754LC Firmware needed! PLEASE HELP!

    With all of the amount of hassle you have went through trying to locate this firmware, Wouldn't it be easier just to purchase a new drive?
  6. Have any of you ever used the Logmein Remote service? I have used all of their different versions of their product and they are all pretty handy for working on a computer remotely.

    Online Storage Security

    I would not store anything at one of those online storage websites unless I was prepared to show anything stored there to the general public as a good `Rule of Thumb`. You do not really know who is protecting your data.
  8. Yes, That is what I am referring to! Do you know if there is anything available like that for IDE drives? I know that IDE is fading fast, but there are still a bunch of IDE drives out there. I have seen a few products that were just adapter cables and that were fairly inexpensive, But a Docking Station with both IDE and SATA sure would be nice.
  9. Hello Brian, I am referring to Docking Stations for data recovery and the such. I have seen a bunch of different ones (Single Drive, Dual Drive, Etc.) out there from $20.00 to over $200.00. Here is an example of what I am talking about so we are on the same page. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153112&cm_re=docking_station_hard_drive-_-17-153-112-_-Product
  10. I was curious about what people thought about these new USB Docking Stations that are on the market. I have been doing some research on these for a while now and I would like some other people's opinions about them. Which ones are "Good" and which ones are "Bad"? Are there any Docking Stations available for IDE drives besides those adapter cables? Thanks in advance!
