Re: Who no longer trusts or uses Facebook?

I have always been a believer that the free market takes care of its own problems. Possibly, but it seems unlikely that we will ever know that for sure. On this planet, markets are controlled by those who have too much already, and solely for their own benefit. IMO, I think that the reason there is...

I tried an account when they first started. After seeing how they treat personal information in their rules I looked at deleting my account. I could not find a way so I just abandoned it.

Re: Because of the Facebook data scandal, should Linux Mint delete its Facebook page?

I dont use any of the social stuff online. However, Here is my opinion on the subject: When you join FB and other sites they do have a terms of service. Nobody reads it just like installing that MS software. So, They basically give away your rights when you hop on sites like FB. Its not really FB's ...

Re: Migrate existing Win 10 to Virtualbox

Here's one that's Win 10 specific, though I've only used the .vhds on Virtualbox. Hi Chris, I have seen references to that. I will have to look into it. I appreciat...

Does anyone here make that backing-up beeping noise while archiving their files, or am I the only one?
lol,

How about a bash script that runs rsync for backups and plays the backup warning?

Re: Migrate existing Win 10 to Virtualbox

When I installed Mint on a computer for my brother, I found a program, from Microsoft I believe, to back up the Win7 install, and I was able to run that in VirtualBox. It's barely usable, but it constantly complains about drivers. Don't know if it works with Win10 or not. I understand VMWare has pr...

Re: Dual Boot - Desktop Power Switch - M.2 PCIe

This is what you need:

separate on/off controls for each drive. Hot swap bays (5). Lots of room on the inside but the case is not huge like a lot of rack mount cases.

Migrate existing Win 10 to Virtualbox

Has anyone been able to import a live windows 10 with EFI into a Virtualbox VM? I understand the licensing issue but only need to get into it once and grab some files. I cannot mount the user partition because of bitlocker. A client dropped this off to me. I did install dislocker and prepared to use...

Re: World Backup Day 2018

I typically backup to a server raid. I have an older 6 core AMD that runs a RAID5 (mdadm) and I typically throw important stuff on that. I also have my home directory on a Mirrored set. I run the main O/S on a SSD. I need to automate my backups. Glad this thread was started to remind me. I will use ...

Re: Laptop SSD upgrade, now runs hot

Since your laptop is not sitting in front of me I will take a guess as to what the most likely problem is: When you were replacing the drive some evil dust clumps fell into the cooling vents and partially or fully clogged them. I would take the laptop apart if you can and feel comfortable doing it, ...

Re: Oracle VirtualBox didnt run a virtual machine in linux mint 18.3

Ive hit this issue before with upgrades of virtualbox. The problem is that the driver for VB in the kernel does not match up with what is installed. I got this when upgrading a kernel and using an older version of VB then the kernel. What I did was make sure I had the newest kernel and then download...

You can pick up an Adaptec 8 Port ASR-6805T RAID card ( like this ) for well under $US100. A few dollars more will get you one like this with SATA cables. Really, if your data i...
