by mamontano / January 16, 2010 8:20 PM PST

Anybody know if this x hard drive supports sp2? Literature on website
makes mention of sp1 but no mention of sp2. Seagate support isn't open
on the weekeends. Maybe i should look into getting a different hard drive but i like this one and the included software.TIA

1. It will work as a hard drive just like the million other models.
2. You can't count on the software. Dismiss that and use what you want instead.

That's what i thought. There are cheaper bare bones models and i can
decide on software later. I have to do a recovery to factory before
taking my laptop in for repair. Optical out/ headphone port only worked a few times and than stopped all together. The warranty runs
out in a few months. Maybe it will start working again but i kind of
doubt it. I get feedback when plugging in but no sound. I'm backing up
to dvd's right now per your suggestion. I don't have a bunch of software and drivers loaded so i can just reload them after getting it
back from repair. Was looking for the simplest solution to bring the laptop back to it's current condition when getting back from repair.
I know you've mentioned free recovery software and i think i kept the
link somewhere. Thanks for your help.

What I used last week!

I used CLONEZILLA to copy a machine's entire EVERTHING to a file on some USB HARD DRIVE. Worked a treat. Since it was in NTFS format I could copy out files in Windows so I had 2 backups after it was all said and done. The image and files. The third backup was to DVD of the files that could never be lost. Remember that we can't write protect USB hard drives so we need one more copy.

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?
