I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am waist deep in home automation...trek homes you know. So I've of course ripped all my CD's for multi-zone multi-amp multi-soundcard music.

Now the final entertainment piece would be to rip all my DVDs for two reasons: 1 to protect my original DVDs from getting scratched (kids) and 2 so with the touch of a finger on my wi-fi touchpad I can load a movie sit back and relax.

I do not want to go the mult-Dvd disc changer. As with the multi-CD changers I see this as a dinasoaur.

With that Said:

Hardware: What would be the best quality video card for movie playing, HDTV etc. Estimated minimum Drive Requirements? 250GIG?

Server Config: Dell Dual drive raid server. 1 gig of ram. AMD chip? Harddrive sizes? Will of course take server recomendations from this wealth of knowledge.

Recomendations on Projectors?

A:Hardware and Software Question - DVD Server


As far as the "server" specs go, since you are apparently going to buy a Pre-Manufactured unit, eg, Dell, and obviously you don't want to limit your pleasure by anything as trivial as MONEY....Just buy the biggest most badass unit they offer.

And if it is specified as Multi-media, it "should" lean in the direction you want. As for the HD capacity...since you are talking about ARCHIVING all of you CD's and DVD's to Hard Disk, 250GB should be sufficient...for your FIRST hard drive !!! Go on from there.

As for a friend of mine always says, "You never have to make excuses for buying the best." Pick up a magazine and check out the reviews.

The more I try and learn about backups and safe storage the more questions I have Here's my latest I have two identical SATA III Gb hard drives designated question software RAID box NAS Software and question, quot D Drive quot under Win bit Pro They are under an Intel software RAID on a Gigabyte GA-Z X-Gaming motherboard Software RAID question, and NAS box software question All appears well I have the OS and my two mail apps on C Drive which is an SSD drive I use Second Copy Software RAID question, and NAS box software question to automatically back up both mail apps to the RAID D drives each night I also use Z-DBackup Software RAID question, and NAS box software question to make a system image of the C Drive once a week which it creates on the RAID pair The RAID pair D Drive with the system image is backed up to LTO tape once a week What happens if on of the RAID pair of SATA III drives fails I guess the Intel software RAID flags a fault I then have to work out which of the drives is dead and swap it out What if an identical drive is no longer available Will any Gb or larger SATA III drive work paired with the one remaining original working drive Does the RAID rebuild occur automagically How long might one expect it to take With a truly unlucky chain of events leaving the PC dead or missing say from a power surge theft or whatever and I just have my tape how do I go about getting the C Drive image from it to a new PC Do I run a repair disc load the tape deck drivers and the SCSI card drivers it runs on SCSI on an Adaptec card then will there be enough quot stuff quot on the new PC to load the Z-Dat software and restore from said tape I guess I should be brave and quot create quot a fault and see if it all works BEFORE a real world failure As an aside if the motherboard croaked and I had to replace it with a currently available one can I be reassured another board would still read the software RAID created hard drive pair Finally If I bought a new NAS box and put SATA drives in it as a RAID pairing and at a later stage the box hardware croaked would a different currently available box necessarily be able to read the drives I can't see much redundancy in them if this is not the case as the risk of hard drive failure is just moved to the risk of the box hardware failing I am not sure if I am understanding how they work correctly or not Thanks

A:Software RAID question, and NAS box software question


Regarding your questions, first I want to say that RAID 1 is not a viable backup solution. Its only purpose is to allow a system to continue to operate with a hardware failure of one of the hard drives until that drive can be replaced. It is imperative to have the data on the RAID backed up elsewhere.

If one drive fails, the controller will warn you so that you may replace the bad drive. It knows which one.
Depending on the size of the drive, it can take many hours to rebuild, but you can continue to use the system as normal. The rebuilding is transparent.

If you use dissimilar drives, the array size will be equal to the smallest drive and it is not guaranteed that all combinations of drives will work together. You may experience constant rebuilds or worse.

I cannot comment on how to get your system up from tape. I have never used it. With other backup methods, there is usually boot-able media that allows recovering the operating system.

Whether or nor another board can read what is on the RAID 1 will really depend on the controller. I have had luck using Intel controllers. In fact, the data was readable from a single disk without using RAID.

I doubt if a different NAS could use the disks should the box hardware fail. You may be able to get the data though, by connecting one of the disks to a system that can read the file system used by the NAS.
The redundancy is within the NAS while it is operational. It would be nice if you could just get any NAS hardware and use any set of drives from any array but that is not possible today.

As you can see, there is no substitute for a good backup scheme. RAID is not it.
If data is corrupted, it will be corrupt on both members of the array.

RAID is good in servers where continued operation is a necessity. I gave up using RAID 1 years ago. To me, since I have no urgent reason to keep the data available in real time in case of a drive failure, RAID 1 is just a waste of drive space.

I use this space for backups of critical data.

I am having a dedicated server and need to know what firewall should I use for securing the server. I mean to say that shall i use a software firewall or a hardware firewall? Which is more effective?

A:What software is better for a web server?

You should use a hardware server; I would say, either get a router that has firewall enabled service or think about IPCOPS distro for linux; If you have an old computer around with two network cards, you can easily setup a firewall with no problem.

Hardware is always the way to go if your going to get a firewall; Cisco ASA or Pix if have alot of computer to protect;

A:Software needs for NT 4 Server

I suspect you're going to have serious problems finding new software that is fully supported for Windows NT 4.0.

I don't know of any application that can scan any operating system to determine any type of problem and fix it regardless of corrupt files or registries. It sounds like you're looking for some type of Holy Grail software that fixes all problems. No such thing. Even harder to find utilities that work with an operating system even the maker of which doesn't support it.

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

A:Web Server Software

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite? It has a web server function to serve pages directly from your computer, so I imagine that it has some way to preview them also. I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

I am thinking about upgrading our server at work and I am trying to put together some rough numbers for hardware and software to see if the project will get any support One I Do Server really Windows software? need big ticket item is the operating system In my environment I can t see the benefit of something like Server rather than Do I really need Windows Server software? XP Our current network is composed of about XP based pc s and one NT server It was originally setup as a client server but evolved to a peer to peer with the server being just a place to store data on drives in a RAID configuration We have two primary applications that use shared data One is Microsoft Access which will work just fine on peer to peer The other is Peachtree Complete Accounting This is the one that depends on the structure of the network the most Previous versions where compatible with NT but the latest version of the software required Windows Server or for client server operation But since it will also function in a peer to peer environment we just changed the location of the data to one of the XP boxes All the pc s can access the internet through a SMC router that is connected to a satellite so currently we are in no way depending on the server for that What are the downsides for me if I just build a pc with raid drives and such but go with XP rather than Server Should I consider Vista Budget is a definite concern So I don t want to have to spend a lot on software if I don t have to And I don t have a lot of time to manage it either so simpler is better too Any thoughts on a recommended processor and or board I am thinking about a Dual AMD Opteron Thanks nbsp

i noticed the paid version of simple centre handles the encoding of songs it to whatever format you want, but id rather not buy a media centre program anyone know of any good free ones that will be able to handle the encoding automatically for me?
thanks in advance

I have a terabyte raid5 running on a server 2003 box. It has a separate system drive. I was wondering, if that system drives fails and I reload 2003 on another drive, will it pick up that software raid5 configuration and all the data? Thanks.

A:Software Raid5 in Server 2003

If the OS is not part of the array and you have installed applications on the array you will have to restore those applications as well. I am not even sure you can make the OS part of an RAID 5 array. Your best bet would be to restore the OS volume from a full backup...the OS won't know the difference since the array looks like one big drive to it.

Hi everyone, I was wondering the best approach on a situation where my company is paying monthly service for a specific software which we implement into our clients and monitor their internal systems. As we have username and pass and a dedicated portal page where we login and there we can manage all the settings and configurations. And here is the part - how can I use this software but instead of going to the remote server to login into our dedicated page, I want to swap my portal platform and use it as it is on my local server. How can get to there?

A:Create VPN and good Free VPN software (Server AND client)

First off, a vpn in just a virtual network connection, so it won't natively present you with a desktop or applications. It will get you remotely connected to the network, from there you will launch something else to connect to a desktop, either rdp, terminal services, etc.

Doing a VPN is natively built into sever 2012, so you won't need any software, free or otherwise to setup a.basic VPN.

Here’s a stumper. When trying to use my dial up connection. It take a wile to acquire the DNS servers automatically. This isn’t that bad all I need to wait is like 30 sec for it to connect. This does this for all the dial-up services on my computer. I think when I disabled DCOM or the Windows Messenger Service or UPnP (something along those lines) it started doing this. Like I said not a problem just tell me what ya think….

A:DNS Server(s) question....

No idea. Those services would not seem to affect DNS resolution, but they may in some indirect way. Why did you disable DCOM?

You mght think about using your own internal DNS server so that your machine doesn't need to keep going outside for resolutions. That way, you can still connect fine even when the DNS server is down, and it is very fast.

I use Simple DNS Plus, but used to use TreeWalk. TreeWalk is free and can be configured as the DNS server for an entire network. Both run as NT services.

Servers use hot swappable components (Hard Drives / Power Supplies)
They are set for Raid (2 X Hard Drives mirroring each other)
They have Digital backup devices
They run Server software (Server 2003)
They are usually on a domain

Is this what you want ?

How do I find out who has my DNS name? I registered my domain name with a webspace account. I then terminated my webspace account and this company claims they leave my domain name active. How do I find out who has my domain name so I can transfer it to my new IP?

A:DNS Server question

You need to get on an NT based machine - NT, 2K, or XP. Then from a command line, type: NSLOOKUP

This will take you into the Name Server Lookup utility.

Then, set the debugging by typing:
set debug
set d2

Then, you are able to put in a domain name and find out all about it, DNS wise. What you're looking for are the AUTHORITY RECORDS near the bottom.

Alternatively, you could surf on over to and lookup the domain name to find out who it's registered to. Note, this may lead you to another name service where you might need to do a whois lookup again to "drill down" to the info you want.

1. Where should you store those WMI files you want to push out to select later?

2. If I can't get a WMI file is there a converter or should I get a third party product that can push out?

Well I just realized that about half of my life is stored on my hard-drive. I'm backing up with an external HD but being the paranoid I am, if the house is burnt down.. the backup doesn't help much.

Any software that automatically uploads any file that I put in a specific folder to some server? So I can access it from another computer and download the stuff back, just in case.

A:Any Sync software that uploads the files in a folder to an Online server?

You will hardly find a software doing that. But you can always upload it with:

Just write the link to your files somewhere, so that you can download again when you need it.

I have a problem.

I run a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine that amongst other things, acts as a media store/server. I recently got a Windows Phone 7 handset that can only synchronise content via Zune (ridiculous, I know), but Zune refuses to install on Server 2008 R2, saying it can only be installed on XP and Windows 7.

I have installed most of the Win 7 components missing from Server 2008 R2 so I'm not worried about compatibility, I just want to know, how can I force install an application to an OS that it is not 'allowed' to be installed on.

If I can't get Zune onto the Server, I'm effectively barred from transfering music and video to my phone. Please help.

hey guys whats up well i finally got my test server up and running on my computer now here is where i am. At this point i am trying to configure terminal services on it. It is all working fine and dandy the problem that i am having is that only administrators can log on to the terminal service session. why is that, i do not want it like that i want regular users to be able to log on to the server and i want to be able to confiugre their accounts depending on the access right that i want to give them.

Well really my question is can it really be done, or only admins can access terminal services ???

thank you


A:2k advanced server question

If you don't have a license for terminal server, you probably can't use it the way you want. Without a licence, you can use it for remote administration, I think it's two concurrent connections, from any number of machines. It seems to me that remote administration would require admin priveleges, so, it's probably a license issue.

I was just wondering how many people who work in the computer industry if you company has migrated from server 2003 to 2008 yet? I would greatly appreciate your responses so please let me know.


A:Server 2008 question

We have some Server 2008 boxes in Norway, and I am in the process of setting up one here in Michigan also. However, it's just a file server, and have not run into any problems yet. I have also set up a 2008 box in a virtual environment for testing purposes, and still have had no problems.

Hey guys,

I`m working in a small company with 100-120 users and I need to get a new file server. I found nice server with 1 TB HDD and 4 GB RAM. My question is do I need 2squad 2.0Fez 1333Muzo cores Processors or Single Quad Core 2.0 Ghz 1333Muzo for a file server I think when you are storing information and network user is using only for file server you don't need so much Prescores don't you? What is your thinking?


A:File Server Question

Thats a mighty powerfull file server!! If your just serving files you can tone it down a little, one dual core processor and maybe just 2 gigs of ram!

How does a Mac workstation see my Win2K print server on my domain? Do I need to enable a service or is it third party? Also we're only running TCP/IP.
