Hi all, Hoping you may be able to help, I'm looking for some advise regarding NAS drives.
I have family across the the uk and we want to upload and view family pics and videos and files with each other and keep in touch with whats going on wherever we may be. I want an alternative to cloud storage (such as a NAS drive stored in my house and connected to my internet and network) that when required the family could access this storage information via anetwork connection.
I would be looking at getting something that if and when required i can upgrade with large hard drives to ensure there is enough storage space, but also something that is not to difficult to use or set up as neither myself nor my family as extermly computer savy.
Can you suggest what would be the best type of NAS drive (if this is the correct thing to get)
Hi Everyone I need some help and advice. I logged onto my server today and Stablebit was advising that the filesystem on one of my disks was having problems. Have tracked it down to my C: drive (boot drive). Have tried many times running Chkdsk and whilst in Windows it tells me that "The mater file tables (MFT) bitmap attribute is incorrect. The volume bitmap is incorrect" but then when I tell the system to run chkdsk with the fix command it obviously requires a reboot, on reboot it tells me that there are no problems during the scan and then reboots back into Windows. Have googled around and downloaded a couple of hotfixs from Microsoft but these are for Server 2008r2 and refuse to install saying that they are not meant for my system. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks Paul
In reading some reviews of the Skylake CPUs it looks like the Motherboards for the new sockets have a new chipset (Z170) that no longer support EHCI. Apparently this means that you cannot do installs from a USB key for Win7, but you can for Win8 and 10 for Win7 you would have to do an install from an optical DVD drive. Another issues when installing Win7 on such systems is that USB keyboards will not be supported - you will have to use PS2 keyboards/mice. Since WHS 2011 is kind of the same vintage as Win7 does this mean that there will be issues in doing restores to new PCs with this new chipset?
