  1. Will this process delete the exisiting data from external drive or not ?

  2. How on Earth do you exclude the libraries and back-up other partitions? This is so fucked up, I don't want to back up my libraries and desktop!

  3. I enabled the SecureBoot in the bios, so the watermark is gone now. But BitDefender is still not working properly.

  4. I have never used OSX since I've never owned an Apple computer, but yeah, distros should not try mimicking windows.

  5. Sure Tim. I'll see if I can dig up that pic.

  6. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL is usually a attached device or driver not functioning. Does it leave a log in c:Windowsminidumps ?

  7. Actually haven't encountered this one before. May wanna post a question over at eightforums . com

  8. Thanks Jeff. It was a pain at first, but I'm loving it now.

  9. As soon as linux starts supporting the gaming scene a bit more. IMO every distro should try to mimic OSX's ease of use.

  10. Man, I'm so fed up with Windows, and MS's bullshit lately. 7 will be the last version of Windows I'll ever use. Ut's Linux (Manjaro) all the way from now on.

  11. Another good video Matt. I still haven't upgraded to Win 8 yet.

  12. Matt, I just updated my Win 8 PC to 8.1, and I'm getting a watermark in the corner telling me that the secureboot is not correctly configured. Do you know of a solution? Also, my BitDefender active virus control is no longer working after the update.

  13. I have a Windows 8 laptop and when I updated to Windows 8.1 I randomly keep getting this Blue screen of death and it restarts automatically here's the error message I get

  14. Thanks for the tip Matt. I have some family and friends that have Windows 8 now and its great to learn that it comes with utilities like this. Also, can you post a picture of yourself as the scarecrow?

  15. The gaming PC?
    I5 2500k
    16 GB RAM
    2 SSD's in Raid 0
    1 SSD
    1 Nvidia GTX 770
    Windows 8.1

  16. Damn, thanks man.

  17. "Windiows 8" in the description.

  18. I don't care about File History, just want my Shadow Copy back like it used to be in Windows 7. Now I must use ShadowExplorer instead… Thanks Microsoft!

  19. Im glad i got a 1tb external hard drive

  20. Thanks Krista. I'm going to grab a new mic this weekend. I sound to muffled I think.
