    Godaddy $0.99 domain transfer

    That's what I do. I transfer out from one registrar to the other every year if I can find those elusive discount codes. You can also just make a new account each year and you're a new customer all over again. Godaddy likes to close accounts that have been dormant for a few years. I have...

    100 GB data shows as 1 GB

    Upon further investigation it appears I had installed the earlier Paragon AFS+ for Windows version 9.1 a while ago. On a Windows 10 computer without Paragon installed it did not recognize the drive. It said the drive is uninitialized. On the Windows 10 with the Paragon installed the drive...

    100 GB data shows as 1 GB

    I have a Seagate external drive formatted in NTFS that I used for both Windows and Mac. I used Paragon software for Mac to allow me to read/write the drive. One day Windows 10 didn't see the drive any longer. In the Disk Management it shows as an uninitialized drive. Windows asks me to...

    Highly unlikely. I know many make arguments by comparing pictures but that is so unreliable.

    How do you backup with integrity check?

    I currently backup my data using drag and drop to my harddrives and flashdrives. When one of my flashdrives started goofing off and corrupting individual files I realized my backup routine sucks. Of course the drive never gives me a hint that something has gone awry. I randomly checked a few...

    Do harddrives employ write spreading?

    Well do they? Do harddrives have a read/write-wear strategy or do they always write sequentially, writing at the first empty sector? If I save a 2 MB file to disk and then erase it and then save again does it occupy the same physical space on the disk?

    Why Cortex A7 feels faster than Cortex A9 processors?

    My LG G Vista phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Cortex A7 1.2 GHz cpu and Adreno 305 GPU. My Insignia tablet has a Rockchip Cortex A9 1.6 GHz and Mali 400 GPU. Why does my phone runs smoother than the tablet even though it has a lower clocked and previous generation ARM cpu? Scrolling the...
