    New Home Server Drive

    Hi all, I'm looking to add to my home media server which is currently running an 80GB Hitachi Deskstar for the OS, 2TB WD Green and a 1TB WD Green (as a backup for important stuff)but all of which are on the way out 4-6 years old. The server is running Ubuntu 14.04, is on 24/7 and drives are...

    Ex WD MyBook shown as RAW

    Assuming this is the problem does that mean that data recovery will be useless aswell then? And I'm also assuming Western Digital won't tell me any more about if they encrypt their usb controllers :/

    Ex WD MyBook shown as RAW

    We tried to use testdisk and there were no helpful options for the drive unfortunately. I think i have a few screens in the original post of post scans :) The original enclosure was destroyed and got thrown out (stupid I know). Will any mybook enclosure suffice? I might be able to purchase a...

    Smart tests all come up as ok so no dice there unfortunately. What's the best way to go about partition table recreation? Thanks for all the help so far! :)

    Ex WD MyBook shown as RAW

    I take it that just a regular mount doesn't work either? mount: you must specify the filesystem type Also what does fdisk have to say? Disk /dev/sdb: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243201 cylinders, total 3907029168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes...

    Ex WD MyBook shown as RAW

    I didn't keep the original enclosure due to it being destroyed when we removed the drive. All WD drive enclosures require a degree in breaking and entering. :roll: Will a SATA to USB adapter do the same thing? If so I'll have to buy one because I don't have any drive enclosures lying around...

    Ex WD MyBook shown as RAW

    Hey all, hope you had a good Christmas! :toast: I've migrated my friends WD MYBook 2TB out of its enclosure into his PC as an internal SATA drive and its data is now inacessable. It appears as a RAW file system in disk management and I have run TestDisk to see what I could gather. The results...

    sudo chmod -R 775 /media Allows me to access the drive and its contents however I ended up modifying it to 777 so I was able to delete my files. Thank you!

    Locked out of drive on Ubuntu Server

    Hey guys, I was trying to delete some torrents that I had downloaded with transmission-daemon and was unable to from my samba share on windows. I figured the best solution was to 'sudo chmod -R 0777 /media/Storage' (my drive with samba) but apparently not. This locked both my windows user and...

    Diablo III Clubhouse

    Magic gear is a hit and miss situation with more miss than hit. I'd personally rather do runs with gold gear so I have a guarantee that the items on the AH are what I'm looking for. Not point settling for second best when your dumping 200hours+ into farming every month.

    Best cable sleeving kits / mobo wires.

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a good cable sleeving kit or a good brand of sleeve + heat shrink so I can do some cable cleaning. I've heard some sets are better than others and If I'm going to the trouble of sleeving I may aswell do it right! Also I'm not sure where to buy these: I need about 20...

    New build, are these temperatures good?

    Not bad for a fairly entry level cooler. Usually I'd suggest lapping the base of the cooler but it looks a bit too difficult with the exposed heatpipes on the cooler. Make sure you use good quality thermal paste, the stuff that comes in the box is adequate but not the best most of the time...

    Will do. I went from uTorrent to Vuze recently because uTorrent randomly stopped launching and won't let me uninstall in windows :/

    Belkin Debuts 802.11ac Wi-Fi Dual-Band AC+ Gigabit Routers

    Looks really good! Lets hope you can disable the wps though. It amazes me how companies continue to release WPS despite its insecurities.

    changing to Bittorent fixed it, but that still dosent explain the router considering Vuze worked before and both routers have been on factory settings?

    Hey all, Just upgraded my net to Telstra ultimate cable and got a Docsis3 modem (Netgrear CG3100D) with it. Needless to say I'm very happy with speeds but I'm having an issue with my torrent clients. Attempted to download and try out a few linux distros with Vuze and they wont download...

    Is 1155 a wise move?

    I'll see how much money I have to play with, Dominators tend to be +$20 on the gskill kits with the same specs. Is 8gb pleanty?
