    HandBrake BluRay DTS-HD to DTS

    There is only one DTS HD MA track in the right language, which is perfectly fine for me, since DTS HD MA is supposed to be fully backwards-compatible, consisting of one normal lossy DTS-track with an additional Lost-Information-Delta-Track to actually get a lossless track after full DTS HD MA...

    HandBrake BluRay DTS-HD to DTS

    Hello, I want to rip a BluRay Movie using HandBrake with a DTS-HD audio-track into a simple DTS track. I am able to choose "DTS passthrough" on a "DTS-HD MA" Track, does this work and just peel off the lossless HD Master part? Thanks!

    low-noise, reliable, enterprisey HDD 4TB

    I have the feeling all those "NAS"-drive features like TLER, green, low-power etc. are not the best choice for normal day-to-day usage, are they? If the WD black is not much louder than a normal WD green HDD, I would go with the black as the best consumer-compromise between green and reliable.

    low-noise, reliable, enterprisey HDD 4TB

    Hello, I am currently speccing a new computer for a friend and looking for the best available HDD in respect to: - 4 TB - low noise - reliable The price does not matter, enterprise-grade with 10^-15 error-probability, 5 years warranty etc. is very fine. However, I doubt the 7200k drives...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I am sorry but I really don't get it. ZFS has no parity-data on the pool, that contains 2vdevs/disks, so data *would* be lost. However, SNAP-Raid has the required parity-data on the third disk, which is *not* part of the zfs-pool. So why is everything lost??

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I have 3 disks and can create 3 individual vdevs, where 2 are data-disks and the third disk contains the snapshot-parity. Then I create a pool containing the 2 data-disks. Why does this not work?

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Why do you need 1pool per 1vdev/1disk? What prevents you from creating *one* pool consisting of many 1vdev/1disk ?

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Do you really mean 1 pool per disk or just one vdev per disk, added to the storage-pool? Sounds quite like an idea... Does ZFS stripe data among the pool's vdevs or are files written on exactly one vdev?

    Plextor m5p: Enabling AES encryption?

    I suppose you have to enable the hard disk password in the bios. the entered password will then (automatically) be used to decrypt some generated badass aes-256 encryption key and use this to encrypt/decrypt all your data. there is just one problem, i dont know a non-notebook mainboard that...

    Best Drives for ZFS

    There is simply no drive with only positive ratings :D DOAs instantly become 1-point ramblings... then there are ratings refering to oudated/bogus firmwares, disk-setups where 1 out of 6 disks failed and killed some raid-pool, etc... I really cannot make an educated guess on...

    Best Drives for ZFS

    I would say these drive are really good but the info is dated. I think the current seagate models, 2 years warranty back again, with 3TB (ST3000DM001) are pretty solid and don't crap around (TLER/WDIDLE) like current WDs do. Furthermore, I think the hyped WD Red drives are better suited for...

    ARECA ARC-1222 data recovery *$50 bounty*

    just out of interest, how does the drive-order change when the hot-spare kicks in? I'd assume that the hot-spare takes the place of the failed drive, which does not change the order? good luck!

    Hot Swap Capability PCIE

    in windows, you can setup whether the disk cache shall be used for that disk. it's pretty simple: everything removable/hot swapable like usb-sticks must not use the disk cache as it cannot guarantee that its contents are persisted on disk. therefore, just disable the disk cache for those disks...

    Modding: normal ODD or slim?

    I plan to use the display with something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130467942740 Are there any slim ODDs with a motorized tray, in contrast to those notebook-drives? I would prefer to use a standard size 5.25" pioneer bluray [1] over any slim device. Thanks [1]...
