    Thanks for the comments. I am going to try Amazon and see how long it takes to upload a relatively small set of photos. Amazon is nice because it is free and unlimited for Prime members (I am) and...
  2. Are Cloud Backup Services Really Practical Now?

    This question concerns Mac hardware, but, I think the issue transcends the specific platform.

    I have almost 2 TB of photos and documents that I can't loose and need to be backed up. Right now,...

    I posted my question on the Microsoft support forum - that was where I was told to run the internet "repair" to re-install everything. There was another poster with the same issue, and here is what...

    You can still use the CD - and even if you have a version like I have - you just run the internet fix and it should work. Just keep your license key handy. It may have something to do with the fact...

    I don't see that option. I didn't see it for the 32-bit version of Office 2013 and I don't see it for the 64-bit version I just installed. Pretty strange. I am running Win8.1 64-bit. I doubt if a...

    If anyone is interested and is experiencing this problem, I thought it might be useful to describe how I "fixed" this issue. I bought a new WD 4TB MyBook USB3 drive, copied the data on the two...

    I simply meant having two File Explorer Windows open at the same time - for copying or moving files from one drive to another. They barely fit unless you re-size them.

    Windows Visual Design

    I don't know if anyone has commented on this issue, but it has become increasingly noticeable to me - and irritating. Current Windows visual design uses _lots_ of blank space. Compared to what used...

    Yup - shutting down the PC and then disconnecting the USB cables from the drives that keep spinning causes them to immediately spin down. The PC is maintaining the USB connections in some way even...

    Thanks for the power strip recommendation - I will give that a try.

    As to my expectation that the drives would spin down, well, I have external USB drives that _do_ spin down, and my Macs power...

    Hybernation is turned off and has been for quite a while. I was having boot problems with it turned on.

    I am not inclined to mess with the UEFI settings - as everything is running fine now.

    I had posted earlier about my external drives going to sleep (Power Settings were set to sleep after 60 minutes) even when a (large) file copy was running. I got helpful responses about what was...

    I was referring to the built-in NTFS "compress" option. I know that it is not as efficient as the ZIP or other specific compression tools - but it is easy to use (just check compress in the...

    Thanks for the explanation of what is going on and a possible work-around. I have just disabled the disk sleep option. Most of the time I am active on my PC when it is running and I turn it off...
  18. Power Management in Win8.1 (Hard Disks)

    The problem with these procedures is that they may discover "errors" - but you have to know what they mean and how to fix them if they are important. For example, I ran the sfc /scannow process on...

    Thanks. I suspected that recimg was not capturing the data. I think that was not made clear in Fred's original article.
