@4wd: Blimey. What did you do to get that result? Why does it have the Plus and Minus next to the 100% Health report? I've never seen that before.
Did you somehow set the offset to -1639, or did HDS do that?

The +/- appears when you put in an offset - which you can do next to any of the S.M.A.R.T. values.

That drive is over 5 years old and still spinning its wheels.

You can run a Low Level Format a couple of times to see if the sectors get remapped, (what I usually do when a HDD starts getting flakey), or use something like MHDD.  Fill up the HDD with big files a few times, at some point it may trigger the remap if the sector gets hit enough times and produces errors.

Would it not be better to have the ability to chain from one profile to another rather than have one hotkey that calls two at the same time ...

Hard Drive SMART Stats

Quote
I’ve shared a lot of Backblaze data about hard drive failure statistics While our system handles a drive failing, we prefer to predict drive failures, and use the hard drives’ built-in SMART metrics to help. The dirty industry secret? SMART stats are inconsistent from hard drive to hard drive.

With nearly 40,000 hard drives and over 100,000,000 GB of data stored for customers, we have a lot of hard-won experience. See which 5 of the SMART stats are good predictors of drive failure below. And see the data we have started to analyze from all of the SMART stats to see which other ones predict failure.

Quote
From experience, we have found the following 5 SMART metrics indicate impending disk drive failure:

    SMART 5 – Reallocated_Sector_Count.
    SMART 187 – Reported_Uncorrectable_Errors.
    SMART 188 – Command_Timeout.
    SMART 197 – Current_Pending_Sector_Count.
    SMART 198 – Offline_Uncorrectable.

From Wikipediaw:

Quote
The Wi-Fi Direct devices negotiate when they first connect to determine which device shall act as an access point.
Quote
Direct essentially embeds a software access point ("Soft AP"), into any device that must support Direct.

That sounds suspiciously like the Virtual AP functionality in Windows 7+ without going through the hassle of typing commands.

4WD.  Highly suggest you check this one out on whatever you were trying.

Already looked at NetDrive but considering its cost I thought DirectNetDrive might work out a bit cheaper for you  Wink

But I don't need something like this since I don't do any mapping of drives ever, (direct S/FTP or UNC for me).
109  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Batch adjust shortcut targets on: November 16, 2014, 11:09:52 PM
Try this version, BSM 0.7

Now fully internal file list retrieval which, oddly enough, is faster than using DOS for small numbers of files but only about 25% slower for large numbers, (eg. 75 seconds as opposed to 60 seconds for 768780 shortcuts) ... so not too bad.

Seems to handle accented characters OK, @gpsTao - it handled all the shortcuts you sent me on my system fine.

Because it now uses purely AutoIt for file retrieval I might have a look at updating the statusbar with file numbers while it's searching and perhaps being able to cancel the search.

DirectNetDrive - works OK, can read/write  you get a progressbar down near the systray whenever something happening, (WebDAV, SFTP, and FTP).  Free for personal use.

[attach=1]


I'd still go with the VPN + UNC myself ... as a bonus it requires no mapping of drives as long as the programs understand UNC - and they should unless they're old or very poorly programmed.  Wink
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Does anyone have know why you cannot map a drive letter to an FTP drive on: November 16, 2014, 06:11:07 AM
You might be out of luck, I couldn't get it to create a folder, nor could I copy something to it - I wonder if it was a permission thing at the other end?

Would it not be better to connect to an office VPN when they're out roaming and then use UNC addressing?

Have you managed to get t to work?

I installed it, it worked ... it was that simple.

UAC did pop up asking if it was OK to install but that was about it.

I thought Ad-Hoc is peer-to-peer when communicating but the actual Ad-Hoc network size, (in device numbers), is only limited by the environment interfering with device communication.
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Does anyone have know why you cannot map a drive letter to an FTP drive on: November 15, 2014, 11:11:50 PM
Not the answer to your question but perhaps a free alternative: ftpuse

Quote
The FTPUSE command maps a remote share (FTP server) as a local drive, so you can use the FTP server of your choice as a local hard drive. FTPUSE is a free application which was developed during production of the network backup suite Ferro Backup System, but disks mapped using FTPUSE can be accessed by any application (e.g. Windows Explorer, Total Commander, MS-DOS command shell).

Works here under Win8.1 Pro x64.

How is Wi-Fi Direct different from ad-hoc wifi? undecided

Looks like the "no brain required, just push the button" version of Ad-Hoc.

Far be it from me to be an expert at anything but having 4 CentOS VPS' perhaps maybe one relatively simple thing springs to mind:

CSF - ConfigServer Firewall, easy to install and can be configured through Webmin (if you use it).

It will also give a 'basic' indication of possible vulnerabilities, (eg. user/pass SSH server, unneeded services, etc).

I've used NetRegistry in Australia a couple of years ago but, like rgdot, I moved the domain in question, (.net), to a US based registrar, (they're cheaper).

I also still have a .au domain through VentraIP, mainly because I got a hosting package cheap through them - I really should do something with it I guess  undecided
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Where do you buy your printer ink? on: November 15, 2014, 12:14:28 AM
I have a Canon PiXMA IP4950, uses 5 ink tanks - in Australia those would cost AU$9 each for compatible replacements, (don't even ask about Canon originals).

On ebay I got two complete sets, (10 tanks), for AU$26 shipped from the UK - ink worked fine, looks fine, printer still works.  And the ink is even cheaper now, (~AU$25 for three complete sets ATM).

So I get my ink from the same seller, cheaper than buying local and I don't have to go anywhere - my parents bought the same printer, they get their ink from the same place I do.

Doesn't have your tanks though, sorry, what model is the printer?
121  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Batch adjust shortcut targets on: November 14, 2014, 11:54:35 PM
OK, I'm going to rewrite the shortcut retrieval routine, there seems to be some problem with handing it to DOS even though the code page supposedly gets set correctly.

This will probably slow it down a bit.

If you have no use for it, stick it on ebay - that way you might get some use out of it.
