FYI.
I've just wasted day and half on this one

Newish laptop E7250 Dell comes with 3x USB 3 ports ONLY - no USB 2.
No built in DVD player - using External USB one.
Trying to reinstall Windows 7 64bit off the Genuine Dell CD
Windows 7 DVD doesn't include USB3 drivers.
Doesnt know about the DVD Drive at all... tells you to get ****ed


This fixes it.

For you savy ones.
Ive got a Galaxy S2 tab. Of late I cant open Word doc's stored on the tab.
I can open ones on emails or if downloaded, but the ones in "My Files" wont open.
They were created and saved on the tab, and used to open ok, but last few months they wont open. Ive googled it but havent found a fix.
Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers Glen

They open on a PC
When I try and open them on the Galaxy it opens Word, which is just a blue screen with Word written on it.
Im on nights tonight so dont have my tab to take a screen shot.

just wanted to give a quick review/shoutout to backblaze...

since getting my new QNAP NAS (thanks to Bird  :cheers: ), i have moved my offsite backups from amazon glacier to backblaze, more specifically their B2 cloud storage product.

was a snap to sign up for and configure on the QNAP, with built-in integration for easy backup job creation.

i have uploaded approx. 300GB of documents (over 12,000 files), music (over 39,000 files) and pictures (over 18,000) to three separate 'buckets', with no issues at all.

the music upload was the longest, taking approx. 36 hours, using my 30mbps NBN FTTN upload connection...

according to backblaze, my first bill for this storage will come to a grand total of 86 cents...  ;D

it has been easy to setup, easy to configure and easy to integrate...  can't ask for much more than that...

would highly recommend any of backblaze's backup products or services...

no affiliation, just a happy customer...
