  • How do I backup whole drive in Linux Mint Cinnamon Sylvia 18.3?

    I just moved up from Linux Mint Cinnamon Rosa 17.3 to Linux Mint Cinnamon Sylvia 18.3, and cannot figure out how to copy a whole drive from drive D to Drive E, for instance. I need to copy the whole drive for backup. It's all data, no OS stuff involved. I backup small SSDs to my big hard drive, then backup that to another hard drive that is taken out of the machine and stored. I could do it in Rosa, how do I do it in Sylvia?

    If you don't know the answer, but know where I can get help, let me know. Write to me at CindyBradyTooh@yahoo.com

  • My Adobe Flash Player is out of date. It wants to know if I want...?

    I am running Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa.

    My Adobe Flash Player is out of date.

    It wants to know if I want:

    APT for Debian/Ubuntu

    YUM for Linux

    .tar.gz for Linux

    .rpm for Linux.

    I have no idea what they are talking about, and I SURE don't wanna mess my system up. I also have no idea what I am doing - I just want my system to run well. Which of the 4 above versions do I want?

    Many thanks, ~Cindy! :)

  • Span, Stripe, or leave them alone? :O?

    I need a 2 TB SSD. The biggest you can get is usually 1 TB (Yes, I know one company makes 2 TB ones, but they're too expensive. I'm sticking with Crucial - I have 3 of them now (one 512 MB for OS and programs, two 1 TB for data). Anyway, I now have two 1 TB SSDs. What should I do - Span them, Stripe them, or use them separately? GIVE REASON! :)

    Thank you! ~Cindy! :)

  • How do I make CDs to play in the car?

    I have a 2002 Toyota Camry. I want to copy CDs to play in the car. (I leave the expensive, store-bought disks at home, and play copies to avoid the theft of the expensive CDs, because I have already had CDs stolen out of my car.)

    I am doing something wrong, because every time I burn a CD, it doesn't play in the car. How do I set the CD burner? What settings do I use? I had an old CD burner, and bought a new Asus burner. None of the disks will play in the car.

    I need step by step instructions, especially how to set the burner - do I want an mp3, WAV, Windows Media Audio? What about WPL, M3U? I have NO IDEA what all that means, I just want a CD to play in my car! :( I've made a ton of coasters so far, and am fairly irritated by that. Does this HAVE to be so complex? Jesus!

    I don't want to spend any money on this. I make CDs once every 10 years or so. I use Windows Media Player to burn the CDs. I also have VLC on my computer, if that can be of any use.

    Thank you, ~Irritated ~Cindy! :(

  • Can you help me pick a video card?

    Can you help me pick a video card? I am comfortable spending $250, more or less. Unfortunately, the cards I have been looking at are $350. I was thinking of a GeForce 970. I also read on the web that Radeon has better cards cheaper, that can beat the GeForce 970. I WILL pay $350 if I have to, but I am not comfortable doing so. What do you think?

    Oh, yeah - one other itsy bitsy thing - I want a COMPACT card - 7" long or so. GeForce 970 and 960 both come in compact form, as do many Radeon cards.

    My power supply is an 850 watt Thermaltake Black Widow - plenty of juice for anything. :)

    My current screen is a 27" 1920 X 1200 resolution. I expect my next screen to be bigger.

    My current processor is an Intel i5-3570K, the best i5 in the Ivybridge line.

    Heat is no problem - I don't use a case! :O My computer is justa buncha computer parts layin on the desk, with wires connectin them! :D It's super easy to clean, and to change parts around. :)

    Not that it matters, but my current video card is a Sapphire Radeon 7770 - yes, 7" long! :)

    Thank you, ~Cindy! :)

  • Video cards - GeForce 960 verses 970; and 7 inch verses 13 inch lengths?

    I'm thinking of buying a decent video card. The only thing is, I want a compact one, if it will do the same as the long cards do. I don't want a card 12 or 14 inches long - 7 inches sounds just right. I'm using a 7 inch Radeon 7770 right now. I'm thinking of getting a GeForce 960 or 970 that is 7 inches long. Is there much difference between a 960 or 970 that is 7 inches long, instead of the standard 12 to 14 inches?

    My current processor is an Intel i5-3570K, the best i5 in the Ivybridge line.

    I don't usually buy a whole computer system at a time. Usually I upgrade piece by piece, one thing at a time. The graphics card is supposed to last this computer, the next computer, and maybe even the one after that. I want to buy one that will do the job 4 or 5 years into the future. That way I can afford an Intel Skylake processor, motherboard, and DDR4 RAM in a year or two.

    Is a GeForce 970 worth the price of $325 or so? Would I notice much difference if I bought a GeForce 960 instead, for $190? Both cards come in compact versions, which are only 7 inches long, which is what I want.

    To recap, the questions are, is there much difference between the 7 inch card and the 13 inch card, and is the 970 worth the large price difference over a 960?

    Many thanks, ~Cindy! :)

  • Buying first video card?

    Suppose I had a computer with no graphics card, and I was going to buy my first one. Suppose there was a proper name brand 750 watt power supply in it. I do not play any games. I use the computer for surfing the web, looking at fine text (which I want very sharp) and pictures, watching movies and videos (some at high definition). The screen is 1920 X 1080p. What graphics card would you suggest?

    Thank you, ~Cindy! :)
