    New to tape, need backup software recommendations

    Hi all, Does anyone know of a free or low-cost Windows-based tool (preferably <=$100) for backing up (spanning) volumes to tape (LTO4)? I don't need scheduling or restore functionality, just something reliable and widely supported for making one-time backups. Incremental backup functionality...

    SB X-Fi titanium pro 79.99 w/ rebate

    That's incorrect. It has Dolby Digital decoding in that it can decode on the soundcard and NOT have to pass the signal to a receiver for decoding. Any soundcard with digital output (coax, toslink) can properly relay a Dolby Digital signal to a receiver for decoding.

    Whats your preferred method of safely erasing disk data?

    I already qualified that it was 'nearly' irrecoverable short of using an electron microscope, I was speaking practically.

    Whats your preferred method of safely erasing disk data?

    It's nearly impossible short of using an electron microscope. According to Robert Lee at the SANS institute, a single pass writing zeros to the entire disk should be irrecoverable.

    Drive encryption

    It's possible to recover the encryption keys from physical memory but it's hardly a trivial matter. The only hope you have of recovering the keys from a Bitlocker system (I can't speak on behalf of TrueCrypt) is if you get to the system while it's turned on, logged in and unlocked. If the system...

    P45 Mobo Recommendations

    Seconding the UD3P recommendations solely for it's high performance and great value, but I'd also like to give a nod to DFI's P45 line of motherboards. I own both and have been equally happy with both of mine (UD3P and T2RS-Plus) but Gigabyte has more frequent BIOS updates and a few other nice...

    If you have gone from the MX518 to the G500, I need your feedback.

    If anything, you should consider upgrading solely to rid yourself of the MX518's crazy lunar landing dimple design :D. With that said, I really like the look of the G500 and have been looking into picking one up for myself.

    Where to buy Func Pad?

    I love my Func Surface 1030. I've been rocking the MBA version for 4-5 years now and only recently had to flip it over and start using the other side after it started developing slick spots on the surface from inconsistent wear. I'd say I've still got another 4-5 years of life in this mouse pad...

    E6600 Running at 1600MHz (Even Under Load)

    My old Intel D975 Badaxe2 motherboard had similar weird problems with disabling C1E (I remember resolving it somehow), so you might want to search around the web for people having similar problems and the solutions they came up with.

    Bring the L2420P to North America!

    Yeah, but that would probably end up being quite expensive and he wouldn't be able to get the monitor serviced under warranty if something happened to it. That said, what about just purchasing the U2410 and being done with it?
