Re: Back Up a Hard Drive

Sounds to me like rsync would be the way to go if your intention is to clone the content of one drive to another - - but you don't necessarily need it to be in the exact same format/partition size. Here is how I would go about it. You should be able to so something similar, but you'd need to adjust ...

Re: Delete Windows 10 from Dual Boot

It depends on how much time you have invested in your current installation, and whether you're comfortable playing with partitions.

Re: Help with MDADM?

Well, I think it's time to give it up as a lost cause. I've scoured all the different message boards & help pages I can regarding MDADM.

Help with MDADM? [Gave up]

I'm not sure if this may be more suited to "hardware" - if so, mods may feel free to move it. I've got a problem with a crashed MDADM RAID 5, and I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me revive it. I've got 5 2TB drives set up as JBOD connected to an old AMCC 9650SE-8LPML adapter. We've recent...

Re: Having trouble setting up and using CIFS to access USB storage on router.

If I understand correctly, the problem is that you are not supposed to have access to the /media directory by default. This is normally reserved for the root system processes to create temporary links to detected disks. For example, when you insert a CD or DVD, it may come up as /media/cdrom, but th...

Re: Create identical computers

Are you talking about a one-time synchronization, or some way to *keep* them "as identical as possible"? Those end up being very different things, and would require quite different actions to set up. If you mean just a one-time synchronization, then yes - something like Clonezilla would be the easie...

Re: Using a 4k TV as monitor?

Using a TV as a monitor is certainly possible - - I do it pretty regularly. As far as putting workspaces into different "quadrants", that will be much trickier. First, your TV would need to support PIP. While this was a popular feature several years ago, I don't think it's quite as common on newer t...

Re: Installing Windows 7 after Linuxmint 19.1 Cinnamon

For what it's worth, I would recommend AGAINST installing Windows 7 as a dual-boot at this juncture. While it's certainly possible, and the advice listed is fine, Windows 7 goes end of support in January 2020. No security updates, antivirus support goes away, etc. All in all, if you plan on booting ...

Re: Mint Hyper-V or VirtualBox

Make sure that you have virtualization enabled in your BIOS or UEFI settings. Virtualization will sometimes work without it, but performance & function are usually reduced greatly. Also, make sure that you've got adequate memory/cpu power to handle the settings you've made for your virtual machine. ...

Re: connect to windows network

If your printer is directly connected to Toshiba, which is a Linux system, then there is really no relationship to the Windows network at all. It should be detected by the Linux system, use the Linux driver, and print using CUPS via your USB cable. If your printer is wireless, then you'd have an ent...
