The Mac is on the way, Jim asks Mike about how to reconfigure and upgrade the Studio PC and the rest of his network. I think its time to consolidate.

What should I use for a time machine back up? Drobo? Unraid? New Drive?

Do I repurpose the Studio PC and and make it the Unraid server?

Windows was not going to sleep for Mike. 

  • Ran command prompt as administrator and ran “powercfg /requests”
  • Saw a system item for “Driver Legacy Kernel Caller”
  • Found out it only exists when the GoXLR app is running
