How do I Reset/Change My Gmail Password?



  • Gmail is a free email service provider and is well known for sending and receiving emails instantly. Sometimes the user wants to change Gmail Password on their own, but unable to do so. If you forgot Gmail password and facing the same issue in changing/resetting Gmail Password, you can reach the experts for assistance.

  • I don't think it's very useful unless you have multiple computers and a lot of digital media (such as movies or tv series, or um… porn?) that way you can set up your own NAS unit with like 4x 4TB WD Reds and keep it all in a central location.

    Personally, I've always preferred just buying more HDD's or slowly phasing them into larger HDD's since I largely only use my desktop even if I have a laptop. A NAS unit enclosure unit thing costs like $300 anyways and you still have to buy the HDD's so it's not really worth it for me personally.

    In regards to backups the best option is to do a RAID1 with two HDD's which will be mirrored onto one another which creates really solid redundancy. If you had a lot of money and very critical data you might want something like a RAID10 which is what they use for something like data centers; it requires 4 disks minimum though. Here's a simple chart to look at with explanations: http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/08/raid-levels-tutorial/

    If you were just wanting a software solution then if I recall Acronis TrueImage was pretty good.

    Personally for my super critical stuff I clone an entire HDD and keep it in a fire safe packed in bubble wrap and static guard and any small updates to it I keep on a USB stick which I regularly update and keep in the same fire safe. I also keep the most important stuff redundantly backed up across 3 HDD's aside from the one in cold storage.



  • @'miro':

    I'm getting about 100mb/s transfer rate, which is slow considering the big amounts of data
    I actually thought you could use the USB3 port to establish a direct connection, but apparently not

    could nas sounds interesting, but how much storage do you have?

    what's the best backup software to use? rsync backup agent any good?
    and what do yo use for windows system drive backups?

    My Cloud NAS (QNAP) is nothing more than having access from anywhere in the world to your own NAS at your home, so the storage should be the one your HDDs allow. Usually, every NAS you buy offers this kind of functionality.

    Also take care about what your write: Bytes (B)/Octets (o) are different from bits (b), so when you write "100mb/s" are you really talking about bits or are you talking about Bytes/Octets? (so you should write 100 MB/s)

    If you're really talking about 100 megabits per seconds (Mb/s), then yeah, that's a little slow.

    Now, if you still think 100MB/s is too slow for direct use, then a NAS is not what you need for the task you're looking for. An USB3 or Thunderbolt external drive with one or two SSD should be what you search.

    As a Mac user, I use ChronoSync, it is very complete but OSX only.

  • Has anyone rolled their own NAS with just a PC and some hard drives, or better yet, a dedicated low-power appliance and something like FreeNAS? http://www.freenas.org/

    I'm curious if the DIY+FreeNAS route is really more cost-effective or not, all things considered.



  • Yep, I have the My Cloud NAS its nice to store lots of stuff and I can access it anyplace I got internet :)

    And yes not for stuff you need disk IO performance, back up storage of files good stuff



  • i am using a nas since years now… atm i use the qnap 879 with raid5... what means around 21tb hdd space

    its ok for saving/loading the files from there of course BUT
    you shouldnt use libraries from network, sadly its too slow, depends on network speed, maximum is around 110mb/s and even with port trunking it gets up to a max of 150mb/s. no comparison to ssd speed :) especially if the libraries are getting bigger and bigger, mine is around 140gb now

    anyway its of course very useful to backup all your stuff (and tons of hd movies :D )



  • I own one, a Synology DS213j with 2 HDD WD Red 3TB (configured with the hybrid Synology's stuff, which is like a RAID1). I use it for several things.

    Obviously for backups, not like a complete image of the system, but just selected folders to sync on the NAS. And to store my old files and projects too.

    I open my projects on my render clusters from the NAS and save the results on the NAS. Then my backup software do the rest: copying the results on my main machine.

    I can also save/load things directly on the NAS, the transfers are fast enough (ethernet), it's like having an extra HDD inside the comp but shared with all the comp you have in your network.

    Opening a big project file of 1.1GB take 14 seconds to load from the NAS. A 540MB one, 7 seconds.
