What is IAMPD?

You may have to tell a little more.

My organizing varies with the content. For my pictures these are in my pictures folder with a folder for each year and inside that year is a folder for each month. If there is a special event, I put a folder in the year folder for that event.

For my CDs I have a folder for my CDs and each folder is the CD content. Since I own about 100 CDs, that's all of 100 folders in my CD folder.

Easy to keep track of and backup a copy.

My context is design a disk organization scheme(diagram) for a company which addresses issues like storage space,performance, user organization,backup practices, redundancy. I have been asked to use RAID 0(Stripping) or RAID1(mirroring) techniques for this. I am utterly clueless what to do, help would be greatly appreciated.

There are companies that do that.

SUN (now Oracle), Dell, HP and others design Enterprise storage systems. If you played your cards right they might write up a proposal.

As there is plenty of web content on RAID I don't duplicate that here.

But there is a fault I find with many company systems. Many still have no backup or some one lulled them into thinking RAID made backup optional. Tell that to companies that had their servers underwater.

--> Research what they call the Disaster Plan. If your company can't get back from the server vanishing then the plan is not ready.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
