Google lançou uma nova ferramenta para substituir sincronização de unidade e fotos de backup. O novo aplicativo, chamado Backup e sincronização fornece a funcionalidade de ambos numa única aplicação. Afirma-se também que ele irá sincronizar pastas como álbuns de fotos, algo que o aplicativo de backup anterior não fez. Um par de limites permanecem no entanto.

0Dentro HDD LogoA clonagem de um disco do sistema

O próximo trabalho em meus festivas rodadas de suporte técnico foi para atualizar laptop do meu velho homem HDD para uma nova SSD. No passado essas atualizações têm geralmente envolvidos outros componentes e exigiu uma nova instalação do Windows, mas com esta atualização sendo apenas um componente, para um Windows 7 PC, Eu decidi o tempo estava maduro para um novo inquérito sobre a possibilidade de clonagem do disco antigo para o novo

0espaços de armazenamentoEspaços de Armazenamento Microsoft: RAID Virtual para Windows 8?

Microsoft de Steve Sinofsky has written a detailed article about a genuinely exciting new feature of Windows 8 – espaços de armazenamento. Não vou repetir os detalhes aqui, para aqueles que você pode ir direto para a boca dos cavalos. However I will point out a key line from a home media server point of view: “There’s another resiliency attribute, chamado paridade, which directs Storage Spaces to store some redundancy information alongside user data contained within the space, thereby enabling automatic data reconstruction in the event of physical disk failure.To me, this sounds a LOT like a software RAID5 similar to that provided by UnRAID. Until Windows 8 is released and the technology is fully reviewed the details are of course somewhat speculative, but my reading of the article leads me to believe that Storage Spaces will enable the striping of disks, with a parity in the event of single disk failure. Further, it is reasonable to assume that this system will work with standard non-enterprise drives without suffering any compatibility issues. Finalmente, it is reasonable to assume that Storage Spaces will offer some of the performance benefits of hardware raid-5 too. If you have a home server with a lot of media and you want some redundancy, sem custo enorme, then this technology sounds like it might be the perfect solution. Graças Microsoft!

Since a post about a year ago where I compared the speed of several flash drives (para Acelerar Media Browser) I’ve been keeping a track of the speed of various drives / dispositivos. As I’ll soon be obtaining quite a few new drives it seemed a good time to organise all the benchmarks and start a post with the data I’ve collected.

1Dentro HDD LogoProblemas de RAID de hardware e HDD consumidor

A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase a second hand hardware raid 5 cartão (uma Areca 1220) por um preço muito baixo. Since then I have used the card along with several sets of drives (originally 300gig, then 750gig and currently 1Tb) in a dedicated server PC as a large network file-store for the family’s music, fotos, vídeos e back-ups.

0Dentro HDD LogoAcelerar Media Browser

An article on Hack7MC caught my eye a couple of months ago, but I have only just got around to following up on it. The idea is to speed up the Media Browser plugin for Media Center by moving its library to a Cheap USB Flash drive, which hopefully offers much better performance than normal hard-disk drives. The first thing I did was test a couple of flash-based devices that I have against my desktop HardDrive

0Dentro HDD LogoSpeed up SSDs, especially in netbooks

I recently upgraded the SSD in an Asus eeePC 901, and whilst the size and performance were both better, the performance upgrade still wasn’t on par with even a 5+ year old laptop HDD. The problem with most SSDs, especially the cheaper ones, is that they usually have very poor write performance with small files. This can make windows very sluggish and unresponsive at times.

I’ve recently been asked to upgrade the SSD drive in an Asus eeePC 901. Rather than write about it in detail here I’ll just say that the operation was painless and a great success, mostly thanks to the excellent guide provided at BitTech

I replaced the default 4gig SSD (leaving the 16gig one intact) with a similar speed 16gig drive which cost £43 from ebay
