    Thinking about stuff that's stored outside of the typical locations in Windows, you might want to look at where your mail profiles/data is stored. Being able to restore e-mail to a new machine is kind of important.

    Understandable.. :)

    My HC2 is behind my Mom's entertainment center, wired to her router. I'm honestly not even sure she knows it is there and if she does, she probably thinks it's something her provider put there. I actually used to do…

    crashtest - excellent feedback and explanation. Thanks for going into such depth. I DO have 4 windows workstations. I guess I didn't realize the dedup process went that deep.

    I regularly backup the media and documents stored on my server to a portable HD, and then take it offsite. I rotate a few portables into this mix, so I'm mostly following the 3-2-1 rule. Recently I realized that the backups of the windows PCs I run via…

    I'll be rebooting sometime this weekend. I'll try to grab some screens to show how the bios is set. I've messed around with various boot order combinations. Also, the drive is direct connected to the first SATA port, not via usb.

    I recently moved my system drive over to an ssd. Like a dummy, I bought an ssd a little smaller than the original system drive. After a bunch of goofing around with clonezilla, I was able to get the machine running on the ssd, but with one exception -…
