Is there any type of paper shredder that can fit on a shelf and push the shredded paper backwards and horizontally, rather than have it drop into a a vertical bin?

The user wants to have the shredder hidden in a shelf in a cabinet with a door, rather than have it underneath a desk.


Thanks

Are there any tracks of education whether it be just video series or a certification for proper imaging techniques with various programs? The reason for this is my experience with the situation is we have used Paragon and Acronis in the past for file retrieval but have had serious issues with re-imaging a device for quality testing. Most fail to load whether it be incompatible hardware or bad archive files. I need to personally get a grip on understanding the techniques to secure myself and future clients with a reliable process and I don't want to half ass it. Sadly enough I do not have higher up technicians available at my current place of employment I can learn from and need to set the tone for this. Has any of you encountered these issues before and how/where did you find solutions?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, so my 4 drive hardware backplane or RAID card is experiencing a failure, two ports are malfunctioning which caused the RAID to go in degraded state and cause a passthrough disk to fail.  SeaTools didn't find anything wrong with the drive, so I narrowed it down to either the RAID card, the cables, or the backplane, so yeah, rather than spend a lot of time with trial and error, I thought it might be worthwhile to replace all 3 components and try a different setup.

My existing Hyper-V setup involves two RAID arrays on separate cards, a RAID-5 (Areca ARC-1210) and a RAID-1 (Areca ARC-1200).  Both arrays are using Seagate Constellation drives.  The hypervisor boot drive is a standalone disk.  The RAID-1 is used for boot VHDs and RAID-5 used for Data VHDs.  So what I am looking at is replacing my current Areca ARC-1210 with an ARC-1220 which would get me 8 ports.  This would be enough to setup two RAID-5 arrays on the card and then I could stripe them in Windows Disk Management for RAID50.  I already have the six hard drives needed for this.

Let me be clear this is not a production environment, this is just a home lab.  Are there any pitfalls to look out for using RAID-50 with VHDs besides losing two drives on one array?  I don't have enough slots in the case to do RAID-60 and RAID-10 would leave me short on disk space.

Hello, I recently purchased a used Sony VAIO VPCSE1CGX laptop to replace my old one, which the motherboard recently fried in due to an unfortunate run in with a water bottle. However, this used one I purchased was physically in better shape than mine, and so I just transferred my hard drive, backed up my data, and did a clean install using the Sony recovery software off a USB flash drive, completely erasing all data on the current drive and restoring it. When I restored, I noticed the sound did not function thru internal speakers, the headphone jack, nor did it function even when using an HDMI cable to a known good TV and using a known good cable. I then attempted to reinstall a clean blank copy of Win 7 without the recovery stuff, just in case the model was slightly different on this one. However, even after painstakingly updating everything, no such luck. The audio drivers appear to update successfully and there are no hardware issues reported. When I do sound tests, the windows Mixer shows level being sent to the audio channels but nothing is heard. i physically took the computer apart to look for loose or missing cables and ribbons, but everything is there and seated well. I'm stumped. Usually if there is some sort of sound card physical issues on the built in board, I thought the HDMI would at least work. Am I wrong here? Thanks!

I bought this vehicle a month ago. Before that I have 2015 RAM 1500 Pickup truck and this truck gave me a very good average miles on highway. The new GMC burn gas like a hell I feel that it might given me under 10 miles a gallon. Do I need to take it back to the dealer?

Bubbles move from the bottom to top making an click impossible. I have disabled the touch screen and it works fine after that but as soon as we reboot it enables again. I need a permanent solution to turn off touch. I've done a lot of trouble shooting with no luck.

Right click Start and select Device Manager,
Expand Human Interface Devices,
Right click HID-compliant touchscreen,
Select Disable device.

Problem is it enables at reboot.

I also Factory restored to see if it was software and same issue. So I think the hardware is bad. Now can I unplug touch? Or is this a whole part replacement? Warranty of course is over so no help from HP. Seems to be a common issue of recent that has plenty of forum requests but no other solutions available then disable in Device Manger (again a temp solution)...

Thanks

Hello,
I have a Dell T5500 Precision workstation that wont boot up and emits a clicking noise unless power cord is pulled from the receptacle. I did upgrade the hard drive a few years ago with a Samsung SSD 840 EVO hard drive. The machine I bought in 2010 and the hard drive and some additional memory was the only upgrades I made. Can someone point me in the right direction to get this fixed? Could it be the power supply? or the hard drive? My data is backed onsite so I can recover. But I would be surprised if the hard drive is the problem considering its not that old and it is a solid state drive. TIA Fred

i know the usb 3 drive docks
my question is : is there anything faster on the market?  
 or is sata speed comparable to USB 3

Well, the question title says it all, but what I am looking for are these features:

- Fast
- Software independant (hardware cloning, the device needs to do the job)
- Clone to a smaller sized disk (if the amount of data on the source disk allows it, does not exceed the target disk total size)

I have seen devices like Sandberg Diskcloner / Sharkoon Quickport XT Duo Clone and Icy Box Clonestation.

No idea what to expect, anyone any experience?

Thank you

Everything worked fine until a Windows update installed the other day and then no audio.  Looking at Playback devices show none present.  Device manager shows the Audio device installed with drivers from 7/27/17, but no roll back drivers available.   Uninstalling the device and detecting new devices produces the same driver and same result.  Looking up the hardware ID leads me to Analog Devices which has no driver updates and directs users to Conexant (Who also has no drivers I can find).  Dell has no drivers available beyond Windows 7.

I have a unique situation. The legal department from my employer is requiring that I get a signed "Attestation of Compliance" document from my service provider.  I have a dedicated server in which my host is basically providing me the hardware, but all set up, security, user accounts, etc. are under my control.

The host is saying they won't sign an AOC because the only thing they control is the physical access to the machine (Items 7-10 of requirements). That makes sense to me. Why should they put themselves at risk for compliance when I have most of the control of vulnerabilities on the server.

Does anybody know of a hosting provider that would in fact provide an AOC for a service provider? Or of a work around for this?

Thanks.

I need to be able to reset a Motorola (Brocade) AP 650 Access point back to factory defaults. I've tried the Motorola AP Discovery Tool, and it has errors and does not work. Any ideas would be helpful. Only have to support these APs for about 1 more year. I do NOT know the IP address of the AP's but I do know the zero config for layer 2.

Again any ideas would be helpful. Thank you

Bringing Advanced Authentication to the SMB Market
Bringing Advanced Authentication to the SMB Market

WatchGuard announces the acquisition of advanced authentication provider, Datablink, with one mission – to bring secure authentication to SMB, mid-market, and distributed enterprises with a cloud-based solution, ideal for resale via their established channel & MSSP community.

Weird thing.  Every time I undock the laptop and dock back my screens switching from 1 to 2 and 2 to 1.  
Two screens connected with docking station with mini-display to displayports.   So every time it happens I just swapping monitors in display settings and problem fixed.

At least one other user has reported the same annoying issue.   Also Lenovo laptop and similar docking station.

Anyone had that or any ideas?  Thanks.

trying to help a neighbor. they have speakers in the ceiling and walls.  they have a control4 system and everything was working supposedly.  They got a new 80" TV and put it up themselves. now they don't have audio through the external speakers.

I know computers. Not much of audio... or at least not on this level.

They have the FIOS cable box feed an Integra audio / video receiver.  The video comes through to tv. No audio through external speakers.

If you run the HDMI right to the TV, you get audio through TV speakers. (so a problem with integra receiver it seems).

I moved the speakers to a Denon audio / video receiver and got audio through the external speakers. so that's good, but switching between cable box / dvd player is a bit of a chore, at least with this dial selector on the denon.

Is theere a simple way to get the external speakers working with the TV and the input devices?!
