  1. The new Windows 10 control panel (I guess they call it that) has a cleanup under System>> Storage>> Configure Storage Sense>> Free Up Space Now. I was told to only do this for a disk clean up and not go to the hard drive properties>> Disk Cleanup or Disk Cleanup >> Clean Up System files. Anyhow that's how I like to do it because I can watch it run. So the other day on my PC I went to the disk clean up and Clean up System Files and ran it. It showed I had several gigs of Update stuff that I could of deleted. Anyhow I did not let it continue but instead went
  2. Hi all, I'm getting a new SSD soon and I intend to install Vista SP2 on it. Despite lack of official TRIM, I know various other people that have been going a long stretch with theirs on such setup using manual software that is made for the device to issue TRIM command. As an experiment, I'd like to test Windows XP Professional x86. I have a good PAE patch that allows up to 64 gigs of memory, DX 10 mod, and an unofficial iso with a few desktop tweaks. (XP Ultimate By Johnny) I do not want to jeopardize the health of this SSD at any cost, so I need some advice from those with experience on the m
  3. I was just wondering whether or not it fixes the 137gb limit out of all the patches it has? I hope I haven't posted in the wrong section here...
  4. Apologies if this is in the wrong section but it seemed as good as any. Ok, so I've just upgraded my NAS unit and disks. All seemed good until I discovered that some folders had mysteriously disappeared. No fear, I thought, as I still have the 2 drives I swapped out with the original folders still on them. I plug one in to my rig and the BIOS happily acknowledges it's existence. Windows 10 however seems less sure of itself. Disk Management shows it with all it's partitions, volumes, etc, but the drive just isn't explorable. The unit was a Synology DS212J and the drives are WD20EARX.
  5. I have a older Dell Win XP Pro SP3 computer which I connected a external Seagate Free Agent Desktop drive to hold audio/video files. Which has worked well for a number of years. Recently a Friend gave me a HP computer with Win Vista SP2 installed. This computer has a single internal SATA hard drive. I would like to hook up, by USB Port, the external seagate free agent drive to my newer Vista computer, and transfer some audio/video files to the SATA hard drive. But I'm concerned about possible hard ware "clashes" between the 2-computers. So I would like some feedback on this issue. Would
  6. Hello, I have a desktop that has Windows 7 and Windows XP installed on separate hard drives. Hard drive 1 contains Windows 7, and that's what the computer boots each time. Hard drive 2 has XP, but the only way I'm able to boot into XP is to disable hard drive 1 in the BIOS. I'd like to be able to add XP into Windows 7's boot menu so I can select which OS to boot when the computer starts up. I tried running these commands (from Windows 7): bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows XP"bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=F: path \ntldrbcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlastI rebooted, but whenever I t
