Re: SanDisk Extreme 900 960GB Portable SSD Review

I admit, I got a woody looking at the speeds.....until I saw the price :shock: Ok, it's not bad for a 2tb ssd, the MX300 is only about $250 cheaper and it is slower plus you need and external case but damn, they really need to bring ssd drives down to more affordable levels. i thought by now we woul...

Re: Bubba

Going down in cost is the Monoprice Marker Select Plus, do the mosfet mod to ensure there is no failures to the electronics. I was looking at that one and the Maker Select 3D Printer 2 - from what I have been reading, the Plus does NOT need the MOSFET mod but the 2 does. Seems they put a new versio...

Re: Forgot windows 10 password

I made a password reset disk with both CD and USB, why can't boot from it? It just skips the loading screen and go to login screen after startup. https://www.top-password.com/knowledge/how-to-use-password-reset-disk-in-windows-10.html If you forget your admin password while working with Windows 10,...

Re: SSD space disappearing?

LOL - I never even thought about another temp directory either. I just figured it was the user one too!!

Glad you got it man.

I would delete everything out of there as it is not needed. Windows is just too dumb of an OS to erase the temp folder after installing programs and updates.

Re: SSD space disappearing?

Also run windirstat as admin and see if it changes what is showing as the culprit.

Disk quota? Right click drive, left click properties and check the tab for disk quota just to make sure it's off

Re: SSD space disappearing?

I would just delete the contents, not the folder.

Windows will continue to use it and it may get crap in it again.

Re: SSD space disappearing?

Ok, https://windirstat.net/ That should let you see which directory/etc is big. You can also check your temp folder ( open a cmd window and type ECHO %Temp% to get the exact location of your windows temp folder if you dont know it ), hibernate file and pagefile (both of those should be in the root d...

Re: SSD space disappearing?

Drive indexing? - find the windows.edb file and see how big that puppy is. You may have to stop the indexing service to delete the file or else restart in safe mode to do it. It will rebuild itself as maybe it got stuck on something and just went crazy (like Windows doesn't do that on a daily basis)...

So at $13,000 a year with 7 gpus then subtract what everything cost up front (case, cards, etc) and you are left with about $1.34 LOL Exaggerating a little bit but unless you have stuff laying around to use, it seems like a huge gamble to spend this much money (and if you have that much money laying...

I know!!!!! I cant wait till they are out in the wild and being tested against the Ryzen!

My i7-3770k is still chugging along though so I doubt I will get one but it is fun to see the competition, if there is any. Plus I want a 3d printer 8)
