  1. TBH for me there is a step missing, after step 1 it should be "if it didn't work rip it out of the wall and throw it 6' across the room" rofl That's how I started, after that I figured I'd better learn how to fix them lol.
  2. Well I took the plunge as I was getting nowhere fast, and formatted the drive before I saw your post (which goes straight over my head at this time), but it was only a quick format, so data should still be recoverable, and am now in the process of recovering to my drive(s), then moving them over to his drive, slow process, but I can't think of any other way to go with what I can manage, and I didn't actually create the 750gig partition, the system picked it up as being the remaining free space on the drive and applied it accordingly I guess, Thanks for the help though.
  3. No I am saving to my drive(s), you should not recover to the drive your recovering from, at best I can squeeze 2TB on to my drives, and that's maxing them out, but figure short term would hopefully not upset them to much, problem is they have over that to save, I wish I had the knowledge to use Linux to repair it so the files could be seen again, alas I don't.
  4. Yeah it's hard to think that with 4TB worth of space I would need more, but with half that space used for my own files, and my mates drive being 2/3's full, it's still not enough lol.
  5. Well I had a look at the software you mentioned, and as it said data would not be affected by changing it to a Basic disk, so I bit the bullet and tried it, now the drive is showing as GPT again, but still no data, and again wants formatting before the system will see it, but recovery software still sees it fine, but the problem is not recovering it again, that seems to be fine from what I have achieved so far, the problem now is volume, there is so much data I am struggling to house it until I can format their drive again, but I will get there somehow lol, Thanks anyway.
  6. Well I am struggling here, recovery was going well, then my 3 TB was full, and I have only saved a part of his files, there is still a load more, so if by some miracle you recall what you did, it would be a life saver, I'm worried that if I mess with changing to any other form such as Basic, it will make things worse, but searching I have yet to find a solution, only try this and that type answers, and with the risk of losing data I just don't dare to chance it.
  7. I came to the same conclusion with the raid drives, but the 3TB was working fine on my system, I could see and access ALL files on it, but after putting it in the other system, and stupidly following it's comment saying it won't be useable until I set it to a Dynamic drive (not GPT), it all went wrong, currently recovering files with rescue software, but with 3TB it's a slow process, I was just hoping there was a simple way to just get the drive to be seen again, with files intact, I looked at changing it to a Basic drive, but figured it would only make things worse, so if getting the GPT enabled on it again, I fear it will be a slow slog recovering it all, Thanks for the reply anyway.
  8. Basically a mate took a power hit, and took out at least 1 of the two raid1 drives, but the 3TB (the one with lost files) was still fine, so got 2 new drives and tried restoring raid1 from the drive that initially showed as good, that failed miserably, my conclusion is corruption from the hit, so I basically have done a clean install setting up raid1 with the new drives, so the system is up and running OK now, but placing the 3TB back has turned into a nightmare. When I powered up it gave the message that it must be changed to a dynamic drive to be read, and I accepted what it said, and then it went bad, the drive showed up as @ a 750gig drive, which is approx. the free space he had on there, and the rest of it could not be seen, not even in comp management, so figured put it back in mine (I have just about enough space in various drives to put his files), and use Puppy Linux to see the files and save them to mine, but Puppy Linux refused to see the drive. So booted to Win 7 this time and under comp management it said it was a bad drive, and the option was to import the drive, so googled that option and most comments said do it and the files should be visible again, so I did it, now I have a 750gig usable if I format it, and the rest is shown under comp management (it did not show this on the other system), but again needs setting up to be usable, which means changing the drive type, Basic is the option, and formatting, which obviously only increases the problem. So in short his system took a power hit, took out 1 of 2 raid1 drives. Then the 2nd raid drive showed problems, so started with a new raid1 install with 2 new drives. The 3TB would not show, and I set it to Dynamic due to the onscreen prompt saying it needed this to be seen, but it only showed 750gig. Put it in my system it showed as bad drive, so I used the Import option, now I see the 3TB in 2 parts, but system wants it converted to a Basic drive, and formatted, any suggestions how to get the files back ?
  9. Not really sure how to use a better descriptiontitle, and I can't be certain without sitting there calculating each option, but I think with todays growing speeds you may need to update this if you want the most accurate results. The bits I am on about come after running the tests, you get a few drop down boxes to select varying info from, which the Pit uses in it's resultssummaries, I now have a 60meg service, the tests report this accurately, BUT, from what I could figure out the fastest option to select from the drop down boxes is only 1/3 of this, but even if that does turn out to be right, it's the fastest you list, and there are 100meg + services around now, I could upgrade to a 120meg service if I wanted, but have no real need for that, but I use it as an example over your speeds offered in the drop down section, just a thought.
  10. I have always manually set it as it made a noticeable difference, but with 8gig being common today, let alone higher, I didn't know if it could start hindering more than helping, just wondered if anyone knew, but from what you've said it doesn't seem to matter these days, Thanks for the reply.
  11. Just wondering if anything has changed these days, I know the 1.5 x and 3 x being used sizes, but given a system can have much more RAM than was plausible back when this was in the days of under 1gig of RAM, but 8gig being easily afforded these days, and say 32gig not impossible, has this rule changed at all ? My understanding is before RAM was the size you can get these days, it used the hard drive to help this along, but if you have 8gig, or even more does this rule still apply ? or does it start causing problems ?
  12. TBH I have no idea, I have never needed to do such things, I just knew Foxit to be well rated as an alternate to Adobe, but looking at the small print it seems Foxit wont do what you want, but the latter suggestion may well do what you want from looking at the write up, in Lou of further input I suggest give it a go and see if it does what you need. http://www.dopdf.com/
  13. I believe many advocate the use of Foxit Reader as the best alternate choice to Adobe.
  14. TBH I have no idea what info can be read by such a reader, but can you recall changing the pin ? The default codes are usually 0000 (4 zero's) or 1234, or for a security code it's 12345, although there are "some" that use different defaults, you can always force a PUK code prompt if you know the Sp of that Sim, because once the PUK request comes up (after 3 failed PIN codes) you go to the Sp and they give you the PUK, the possible downside is if they wont help as you are not with them now, so only go for this if you are not worried about binning that Sim card. Apart from this my best advice is to pop over to Howard forums, it's been a while since I was into phones, and have forgotten a lot of info, but they are well up with the latest stuff so if anyone can reliably help it should be them, hope it helps.
  15. I suggest the fastest way to check if the signal is too weak is to connect via a cable and try it, if the cable works fine then it supports the weak signal, if it still has issues then the signal is not as likely the issue, but this is the fastest test and costs nothing so IMHO is the best option for now to figure out the next step.
  16. I would happily drive the car as well, but no where near the way they are lol, I wouldn't have that much experience on the ice to do that currently, but to be a passenger in that ride driven like that, you'd certainly know you're alive lmao.
  17. Tight idiots lol, OK try these then:- Rally car Races Bobsleigh Crazy Stunt
  18. I'd be tempted to do something like that if it was safe enough, but more likely to do it on my own, I'd see it as practise should the worst happen. But I challenge anyone to take This Rally car Races bobsleigh Ride and say they weren't scared at the end, I'm up for most things crazy, but thats even put me on edge lol, Here is another crazy stunt they did in the same program.
  19. Well took me over an hour to find it lol, looks like it#s different from how I remember, but here it is:-
  20. LOL, you want to see the sign over here then, it's a big sign out the front of the place, and in big letters it says "Free Erections" rofl, the company in question sells sheds lol.
  21. 2 thoughts, check under start up and see if it's listed there, if it is remove it and see if that works, or else check for scheduled events, can't think of anything else ATM, hope it helps.
  22. I usually add 1234567 as my number using my towns code when forced to use such forms.
  23. Yes I understand that, but I was explaining to re-use a disk the way they want they have to use a rewritable disk, you can't rewrite on a normal disk, so the only solution is to get a new drive that supports rewritable media, sorry I wasn't clearer.
  24. You misunderstand the meaning of the + and - they are formats, you can NOT wipe or re-record on these disks, every recording goes behind the previous, once full thats it, if you are unable to view the previous programmes it just means the kit can't pick it up, but it is still on the disk, although I have seen burners capable of destroying normal disk once finished with, if you want to re-use disks you need to get RW disks, these allow multiple burns time after time, of course they will eventually need to be binned, but you can erase and re-record on these RW (Rewritable) disks, and like normal disks they come in both + and - format, hope this helps.
  25. According to the Netcraft Phishing add on for ie they've been there since Dec 2004, I've used it for a year or so now, great tool, only niggle I have is getting froze out on rare occasions, but the biggest is not being able to click on certain programs\buttons, ZoneAlarm is the greatest offender, I keep meaning to ask them what I can do about it, just haven't had the time, but it's the best tool I've found to date. *edit Best advice I can offer is try it as the free version, then once you've satisfied yourself it's all you need then by all means go ahead and purchase it, but it is free for personal use, I help a dozen or so mates using it this way.
