    Moving sata hdd with data to new pc, new pc doesnt see data.

    Both versions of windows are a currently updated windows 10 home, non-insider edition. no raid ever on either system, there seems to be no encryption, and probably no bitlocker possible (home editions). this hard drive came out of a newish recent dell, then sata plugged into the old pc, filled...

    Experts: It's Unlikely ‘Pirate’ Kodi Users Will Get In Trouble

    name change from xbmc to kodi was to facilitate trademark issues when people would sell pirate boxes. they couldnt do anything about them under the xbox media center name. many of the addons stream from torrents, and as such, upload to peers. this is still the illegal and traceable part.

    Microsoft Removes Group Policies From Windows 10 Pro

    Well fuck, I just bought a win pro for $199 specifically and only to disable the app store and defer updates (for stability reasons). I even chatted with ms citing this specific reason, and he still recommended the pro version 3 days ago. I guess I can try suing in small claims courts.
