First report of a Win10 Home 1803-to-1903 pushed upgrade over a metered connection

There are many, many reasons why I hesitate to report on update behavior that appears to be one-off. But this one seems particularly ominous. @NorD reports that his Win10 1803 Home computer with an Ethernet “metered” connection got pushed to 1903. Has anybody else seen that? Yes, Win10 1803 is three and a half months […]

Want To Clean Up Your Windows 10? Try Defragging It.

“Defragging” or defragment sounds pretty technical. Truth is, there’s really nothing technical about it. It just refers to a process that can help boost your computer’s performance.

The process is very simple and it can help every computer-user like you. So, if you want to boost your computer’s performance by cleaning up your hard drive in Windows 10, you can do so by defragging it.

It’s simple to defragment – or ‘defrag’ – your storage in Windows 10. If you have a hard drive you’ve been using for a long time without disk defragmentation, you may have noticed performance steadily slowing down.

That likely means it’s time to perform a defrag on that drive.

You might wonder how defragging a hard drive can help boost the performance of your computer. Here’s what happens when you defrag a hard drive.

Disk defragmentation moves chunks of information on a disk around so that related data are physically closer together on the hard disk. This helps improve speeds on the disk, as more data can be read consecutively without the need to jump around between sections of the disk. It can also allow for faster write speeds for the same reason, as newly written data can go on the drive in order.

Here are the steps to defrag your hard disk.

• Step one: Press the Windows Key and type ‘defrag’ into the search bar, then select “Defragment and Optimize Drives” from the results.
If your search bar is misbehaving or you don’t see the above results, you can also reach the tool by opening the Control Panel, selecting System and Security, and then selecting “Defragment and optimize your drives” underneath the Administrative Tools header.
You can get to the Control Panel by pressing the Windows Key and typing “Control Panel” into the search bar and selecting the result or you can open the Start Menu, scroll down to the Windows System folder, open it, and select Control Panel from inside.
• Step two: Examine the list of your computer’s drives in the Defrag tool, and find the hard drive you want to defrag.
• Step three: Check the “Media Type” column for your drive and ensure it is not a solid state drive (SSD). Only proceed with defragmentation for a hard drive.
• Step four: Click on the drive you want to defrag, then press the “Optimize” button below the list of drives.
Windows 10 may prompt you to approve the action before it proceeds.
• Step five: Sit back and let the Defrag tool work. Depending on the size of your drive and the level of fragmentation, it may take a considerable amount of time

Data Loss Is Not A Hopeless Situation

Anything can happen to your data. You can lose it in the blink of an eye. It can happen so fast that before you can think of doing anything, your files are gone. They’re not in their folders and they’re not in the Recycle Bin. They’re gone.

Sure, you could always recreate your files but that’s going to take a lot of time and effort. If you’ve backed up your files to an external hard drive, then there’s hope for you. You could always go through your backups in the external drive but if they’re not updated, they’re useless.

You would still have to spend some time recreating your files again. That is, if the external hard drive is still functioning pretty well. If luck isn’t on your side and the external hard drive isn’t functioning well, then you’re really going to end up wondering if you’re ever going to get back your files. Some hard drives fail you at a time when you need them most.

Don’t despair. Data loss is not a hopeless situation. According to the experts at the California-based Hard Drive Recovery Associates, you can still recover and undelete files in Windows. Even if they seem like they’re gone forever, you can still get them back.

The experts from the Hard Drive Recovery Associates bring hope for what seems like a hopeless situation. That’s pretty much the reason why they are getting valuable support from the community.

Irvine, California-based Hard Drive Recovery Associates (HDRA) is pleased to acknowledge a recent increase in the amount of support and positive feedback shown by their community.

The Irvine company is well known within the community, and this recognition increases with each day as more customers share their experiences with each other regarding Hard Drive Recovery Associates’ services. Residents continue to make appointments to contract the company’s services—and HDRA affirms that they are the best chance clients have of recovering any important information from their Hard Disk Drives (HDD) and Solid State Drives (SSD).

Here’s what Troy Hodge, a recent customer, has to say about them about the Hard Drive Recovery Associates.

“After discussing my case with a number of data recovery services, I decided that HDRA was easily the most competent company. They guaranteed that if they couldn’t recover my data, they wouldn’t charge me for it. All of the other providers that I visited were insistent on charging me for an evaluation fee. The Hard Drive Recovery Associates managed to recover my data in record time while being completely transparent of the whole process, including the risks that I was facing. They also did this service at an affordable price, being the best out of

Here’s A Practical Way To Upgrade An Old Computer

Is your old computer driving you nuts? Are you dying to get rid of it because it’s so slow? Well, stop right there. You know why? According to the leading data recovery company, you don’t really have to get rid of your old computer, at least, not just yet. There is a way to rekindle the love for your old computer.

According to the Hard Drive Recovery Associates or HDRA, you can make a solid upgrade to your aging computer with the use of a solid-state drive or SSD.

Considering a solid upgrade for your old computer is critical. You can’t expect the hard drive of your computer to be in great working condition at all times. The hard drive can eventually crash because of its wear and tear over the years. When your hard drive crashes, your invaluable data go right with it.

HDRA spokesperson, Jack Edwards shares on a recent news post that the components of a hard drive are prone to fail over the years. So, take it from Jack. Don’t expect the hard drive of your old computer to perform well because at some point, it won’t. As a matter of fact, it’s probably struggling already. Don’t wait for it to crash. That probably is the best advice from the guys at HDRA.

This advice comes in timely as more and more consumers are becoming aware of the valuable services of the HDRA.

So, go right ahead and upgrade your old computer with an SSD but don’t get too excited about it. Just because an SSD is a practical way to extend the life of your aging computer doesn’t mean it’s perfect. SSDs can fail as well. SSDs like hard drives fail as well.

That’s the reason why backups are important. Sad to say though, they fail as well. There are a lot of reasons why backups fail.
