    Question about Deleted Data Security of Different Drives

    Do you have a link I can read up on? I was unaware of this. I knew if you encrypted the drive first and then formatted it, that data would be unrecoverable, but if the drive is not encrypted and just formatted, then that data is still recoverable.

    Question about Deleted Data Security of Different Drives

    https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001407.htm A Full Format runs an additional step that checks the hard drive for any bad sectors. This check is what makes the full format take so much longer than a quick format. Unfortunately, like the quick format, the files still exist and the volume...

    Question about Deleted Data Security of Different Drives

    What do you mean by a full format? As in just formatting the drive without it being encrypted? That data is easy to recover (I've had to do it when I've accidentally formatted a drive before) with GetDataBack. I agree with everything else. I just wanted to make that clarification.

    Can i reset my IP to becoming a new user to sites that have blocked my devices, and IP without them ever getting wise?

    It depends on what you are looking for. Sometimes Google doesn't provide you with what you are looking for.

    Question about Deleted Data Security of Different Drives

    Send the drives to me, I'll securely wipe them for you. 😇👹 But in all seriousness, encrypting the drive and then doing a simple format will be good enough to stop most people from seeing what was on that drive.

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    For what I do, no, but certainly can do that. Does your CradlePoint have a usb port on it? You may be able to charge the phone through that router.

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    I do some phone farming and keep my phones plugged in 24x7. Yes, there will be battery bloat eventually. Just swap the battery and you are back to the races.

    Blocking DNS versus Redirecting DNS

    Maxmind requires a subscription now, unless you are paying for it, then you can ignore this post. If you are doing it another way, I'd love to know how.

    You need to set your rules for DNS only to your LAN and block external DNS.

    Custom built PC vs Netgate SG-3100

    That NIC will work fine. I haven't used any Netgate product, but they are pretty expensive for what you can find in some other whitebox product, or even building your own.

    Custom built PC vs Netgate SG-3100

    Intel NICs work best. You still need to configure the correct NIC for your WAN and LAN interfaces. You'll want to connect your LAN interface to your switch if you want to use more than one device at a time. If you have a SOHO router, you can do DHCP forwarding from pfsense and you'll need...

    Asus ROG Phone 3

    We all are like that at times. Again, you can still have a kick ass gaming phone, but if you want to do any calling, sms, or cellular data, probably a good idea to look elsewhere.

    How important is cloud storage for photos vs local?

    Cloud backups guard against loss of device, destruction of device, accidental deletion, and fire. Saving things locally is cheaper, but having that peace of mind is nice. I have no experience with iDrive , but it looks pretty good from a few reviews I've looked at...

    How do you configure Windows to start/stop a service when opening/closing an application?

    It is their concern. Your personal device connecting to their network. Their app running on your pc. If the app shouldn't be running while it is not connected, perhaps they can configure it to do so.

    Whats the deal with Seagate?

    Look at the percentage of failures (AFR), not total amount (Failures). WD purchased HGST some years ago. The 4TB drives are pretty old now, which is why you'd see more failures.
