    Storage Spaces Problem Win 10 Enterprise

    So just an update. I somehow managed to add a new drive to the pool after several reboots. After that, I ran the optimize storage function and let it do its thing. After it finished the drive showed up in Windows explorer, but when I tried to open it I kept getting Access denied errors. Long...

    Storage Spaces Problem Win 10 Enterprise

    So I have this storage pool that I created for storing my media files and photography backups. I have been using it successfully for a few years now with no issue. It was created in Windows 8 but worked fine after upgrading to Windows 10. Suddenly I started having this problem (See screenshot)...

    Looking for a hot swap solution for Work/Personal

    I'm interested in setting up my PC so I can use one SSD for my work OS (I work from home frequently), and another SSD for my personal OS. For both drives, the OS would be Windows 8.1, but I would like to keep my work software and settings separate from my personal stuff. I was looking at hot...

    Question on Logitech Z2300 speaker system + subwoofer

    You could always fedex the subwoofer to your new address before you leave, or have a friend/family member do it for you...but it might be just as cheap to buy a new set of speakers

    Dust filters for Fractal Define XL R2

    So, I've installed a Corsair H100i in my Fractal case with the radiator mounted at the top and fans as intakes, and was wondering what are my options for adding a dust filter on that intake? Check the pic below: clicky

    ROG Motherboard Owners - Do you use the ROG software at all?

    I just completed a new build with my first ROG motherboard and installed all of the software included - AI Suite, ROG HD Audio, the network shaping tool, and everything else. I played around with it but wasn't too impressed by it, but whatever. Anyway, last night I started experiencing some...

    First build since 2008, switching back to PC after years on a Mac - advice?

    I use Backblaze for online backup but like to have a local backup too for convenience. I also have a spare SSD in my Mac Pro that I'll be pulling for a swap drive.

    First build since 2008, switching back to PC after years on a Mac - advice?

    Great info, thanks for that. As for my storage setup, the SSD will be for OS, applications and games. The 2TB WD Black will be for data, RAW files, music/media, virtual machine storage. The 3TB green will serve as a backup drive for the other 2. Maybe I overcomplicated it, it made sense to...

    770 SLI vs Single 780 for 2560x1600

    Thanks for all the replies everyone. I've decided to stick with the 680 Mac version I have for now (confirmed it will also work on PCs), and will look at my upgrade options when the next line of Nvidia cards comes out.

    First build since 2008, switching back to PC after years on a Mac - advice?

    Thanks, Answers added to original post. Even for overclocking the H100i is overkill? To be honest I couldn't find anywhere that explained the difference between all the different Corsair liquid coolers, other than the number of fans and noise levels, so I just picked one of the most popular ones.

    First build since 2008, switching back to PC after years on a Mac - advice?

    So I'm planning to build a brand new from scratch gaming PC after years of using a Mac Pro as my main computer. I'm tired of being hassled switching back and forth between Windows/OS X, and since I'm not tied to any specific software on the Mac side, it makes more sense to have a Windows gaming...

    770 SLI vs Single 780 for 2560x1600

    To be honest I didn't even look into that yet (I only just started looking up parts, haven't built a PC since 2008). I may have to hold off until then :)
