Mike’s Backup – For my mac I use Carbon Copy Cloner and for Windows I use Backupper

Mike – Plex in the new environment

Rosewill Case –

Mike – netData app for UnRaid.

Jim – Had one of the 8 TB Seagate drives go bad this week.  RMA process was 5 minutes and super simple. $12 priority and shipping is included.  They send a replacement, I send the old one back

Jim – Erin Lawrence is on in 3 weeks.  She just reviewed a robot window washer.  Price is steep, but I think I really need one.

On the last HGG Mike Wieger pointed out prices are dropping on memory cards as well. I have used TeamGroup cards in phones and tablets with no issue. They do have a lifetime warranty:

Blast from the past! One of my coworkers found an old paper stashed away and brought it in to work. Thought you all might enjoy seeing this.
