  1. How did this happen to my USB drive?

    Your'e not gonna want to delete that Every drive has that (information about partitions) and you must have "Show protected OS files" enabled. I'd recommend disabling that so you don't accidentally delete something that you actually need.
  2. What do you do to get warmed up gaming?

    Play casual with your friends in a private voice chat and practice as if it's competitive with callouts and economy management.
  3. Limetech unRaid alternatives.

    If all you need to host is Minecraft, there's literally a Linux-based operating system for that. You should try out MineOS https://minecraft.codeemo.com/ which will allow you to easily manage your server through a web interface. Of course as @cox1000 said, you could just install any Linux distro and set up SMB, but if you want it to be simple, MineOS seems like the best option.
  4. Secure Laptop

    Probably not anywhere to get them cheaper. You can set a price watch with https://camelcamelcamel.com/ and they'll email you once it goes down in price. Chromebooks are really secure for two reasons: Right now, the market share is really small, so nobody is going to waste time making malware for it Google takes security very seriously, so if there is a vulnerability, it'll probably be patched within a day
  5. NAS - DIY or Prebuilt

    I'd like to add that I've been considering unRAID lately, which is what Linus uses, and it's a very versatile but easy operating system for storage servers. I'd recommend checking that out if you do decide to build your own. One of the best features in my opinion is SSD caching, so you can get really fast write speeds and have mass capacity at the same time.
  6. Secure Laptop

    A Chromebook would be wonderful. You're not going to get a very well performing laptop at that price point that isn't a Chromebook.
  7. NAS - DIY or Prebuilt

    Building a NAS allows for a lot more flexibility in both the hardware as you mentioned, but also the software. I'd definitely recommend building one if you plan to rapidly expand your storage. And based on personal experience, doing video work sure fills up a lot of storage, so you'll probably need more than you realize right now.
  8. What is best keyboard for my needs ?

    Reds aren't great for typing. I think browns are the best all around.
  9. Obs settings for my rig please

    I have (2) 2TB drives and have over 2TB of screen recordings, they sure add up. Anyway, here are my settings. Make sure you change your color space too. To further improve video quality you can increase the bitrate, but I find that anything higher fills up too much storage for me.
  10. Obs settings for my rig please

    It really depends on how much space you want to fill up. Your CPU is powerful enough to encode with pretty much any setting, but I doubt you want to fill a terabyte per hour of video. How much storage would you like an hour of video to fill? I fill about 8GB per hour with my settings.
  11. Raspberry Pie NAS

    It's possible, but not practical. It only has USB 2.0 and the ethernet port is on the same controller, so the max theoretical speed you would achieve is 12MB/s but in reality, it will be lower.
  12. Is this parts list good?

    The CPU graphics won't be used if you have a graphics card. It doesn't add performance.
  13. Redoing home servers

    unRAID is pretty nice, and does support VMs. I'd recommend that for an all around server.
  14. I need help with gaming pc

    That looks pretty good for $500 TBH.
  15. I need help with gaming pc

    For less than $600 prebuilt I wouldn't imaging anything higher than 1080p.
