Hi, I have a heat issue with 1 of 2 identical desktop, that tries its best to roast hard drives. On #2, StableBit Scanner warns me the drives running temperature steadily climbing upward of 50c which is preset to send me an email. From a overnight cold boot, they begin one by one to get in the 50c's within the hour ! The back-up server (#2) is an exact copy of the main server (#1).Back-up server (#2) runs only for incremental backup,I then shut it down The main server (#1) runs about 18 hrs a day, then sleeps at night; Drives are usually running around 35c which is heaven for them While I'm getting set to add two 120mm fans to the lower front as "standard option #1", I still wonder if it will be enough. The projected 2 additional fans will draw fresh room air around the six lower 3.5" drive bays then into the case The drives that are first to report being bbq'd are within the three 5.25" to 3.5" upper area. Will they benefit at all from the new wind tunnel below? A pic of my "bare" backup server. It's an Antec Three Hundred Two case. I added ICY DOCK Flex-Fit 3.5" adapters to all three 5.25" bays.
SilentASSassN posted a topic in General/WindowsRecently my movie collection has filled up an entire 2TB storage drive. When I originally set up my HTPC, I included a 2TB drive for movies, a 1TB drive for Music, Documents, and other general storage. Recently I've filled up the original 2TB "movies" drive and I've now added a 2nd hard drive. Is there any way in MBS to add a second (or additional) default location to my "Movies" media collection? So far I haven't been able to find a way to do this and have been left to create 2 separate media collections (aptly named "Movies 1" and "Movies 2") for what is truly a single media collection. Sure, I can browse through the entire collection of ALL my movies (including my "Kids Movies" collection and/or "Adult Movies" collections), but usually I prefer to just go directly to a specific media collection when I want to browse and what ends up happening is I'm only browsing 1/2 of my collection.
