To be fair, you'll still have to put up with a lot of it as a programmer... but not as much as a sysadmin would. Well, most of the time, anyway.

Well gee, thanks for telling me the negatives of my potential career

Then again, I'm sure a lot of the general public thinks that IT knows everything about computers, which in turn can cause people to be frustrated when you tell them you don't know about something.

Welcome to the world of...IT in general, I guess?

I want an even bigger external drive now. Two 1 TB drives aren't going to cut it. Sometimes I wish storage can be easily combined into a single unit in hardware!

Just letting you know what you are getting into. It was a nasty surprise to me. So I am probably going to shift my career a little and get into info sec.

When you are in IT, you are the expert.

8TB Hard Drives? And have you heard about Storage Spaces for your existing problem?

I'm probably getting another external hard drive for Christmas. I haven't backed up my desktop in so long (my current external hard drive is near full), and my laptop and server need backups.

Best of luck to you, post back here if you find intersting stuff. Always looking for good stuff to read.

I use Google Drive for my personal file backup. I redirect all of my folders into google drive so anything I save is instantly backed up. I don't actually back up the OS. I can just reinstall it if I need to.

Reinstalling an OS is an absolute nightmare for me. I customize every single little thing.
Anyone else computer-neurotic?

You should look into creating an image. WDS is magic. I am sersily thinking about setting up a home lab with a WDS server just to make any and all future install easier. I need more disk space and another physical computer to do that though.

You can avoid double posting by not using the quick reply box on threads with lots of posts (like this thread). Just an FYI.

Hmm, I wonder how large a system image would be for my desktop. If it's less than 80 GB, then I could definitely fit it inside the other hard drive inside my desktop

I'll look into that, but I do prefer single-drive solutions.

(Maybe I really should switch to 3.5" drives, but I don't think any of them can run off USB power alone, right?)

No, 3.5" are too power hungry. They also use 12v, whereas the 2.5" use 5v, which they get from USB. It is theoretically possible to power a 3.5" HDD over USB 3.0. There is enough amperage there.

Hey, folks! I don't know what to put here, so I better just advertise.
Can you give me a hand with my hack? Just PM me.

I need some help with mapping, though I really can do that, and spriting. And, if you're friendly enough, VM me, and we can chat!
