    Secure Boot.

    Hello. I do a lot of cloning on all my machines, so far so good. I recently planned ahead and got a new laptop, to be able to go to W-11. Of course, I got one with Secure Boot. I am unable to do a clone any more as Acronis tries to boot from its USB media disk. I succeeded in getting rid of...

    Windows 11 Discussion

    I am with you, Mike. Cannot teach an old dog new tricks. But I beat you, last week i started into my 90th, thus old dog. I still use Panel as you mentioned. Some clicks take you to Settings and I have learned to live with it. My daughter who coded a PRG for NASA and is now on Mars, tried W-11...

    Upgrade to W10 21H 1.

    Hello. I got 21H1 installed on a machine but on reboot, it asked for my PW, which I typed in. It was refused. Then the fun began ! It, the machine, asked me to change to a new PW, that was fun, it would not accept anything at all. I then hit the "use another way to do this" and it sent me a code...

    Fresh install of windows on new computer??

    Hello Jared. Why not use that SSD as is ? I do this all the time doing clones from any one of my 4 machines. When you first boot it, it will look for all that is different and then run like a new machine or better still like your old machine on new hardwadware. Go for it.

    What are the chances of an attacker recovering my data on a “quick formatted” hard drive?

    Patrick, greets. Just one small detail here. First, let me thank you for the Anchor text. Not very W-10 important but fine to read. Now to set matter straight, let me say that it might have been prompted by "Jean" as my name. Jean here is John where you are. Hit me at my email and we will be...

    What are the chances of an attacker recovering my data on a “quick formatted” hard drive?

    Patrick, greetings. What a nice reply, it really clears up my mind. I needed to know if Gparted would do this or not. I guess that now, when I garbage a HD, I will again, as I used to do, drill a 1/8" hole in it. Or beat the light out of it with a sledge. Would this be forensic enough ? Light...

    What are the chances of an attacker recovering my data on a “quick formatted” hard drive?

    Hello, Pat. How are you ? I follow this note for the education possible. In my case, I use Gpart to flush the drive. What can you tell me in this regard. I do a "Delete" of any partition on the HD, followed by a "New" action then a format to NFTS. It shows me a blank medium. In your opinion...

    Keyboard layout ?

    Due to the tremendous amount of replies here, I will delete my request. By the way, the problem was solved by my daughter who coded for Microsoft a few years back, she was even invited to Redmond for an interview, she declined their offer as they were not even considering the human factor. She...

    How to fix Reset Cisco Wi-Fi Password?

    Hello John. If I understand your problem well, here is what to do : with the router powered, reach to the back of it with a stiff wire, and poke into the small hole with it for +/- 10 seconds until the front LEDs blink. This will reset the router to factory, all setings are gone includind the PW.
