  1. If any data is irrecoverable, a backup is absolutely necessary. Raid is not an alternative to a backup, its main purpose is for high uptime, but a backup will allow you to recover from a catastrophic failure or user error. If you're only storing movies, TV shows, music, etc, then a backup isn't 100% necessary since you could recreate the data.
  2. I only have 60Hz monitors and anything below 55 fps is noticeable and annoys me.
  3. The minimum for MacOS is 16GB, but that's not going to be very useful. You need to decide how much space you want on each OS since 250GB isn't much to begin with. You seem to care mostly about the Windows side, so I'd give Windows 150GB.
  4. I'm not actually sure of the specifics but if you open the disk utility you can see all your partitions and probably right click to expand one. You might not be able to expand it depending on your partition scheme or locations. If this is the case you can add another partition for storage on Windows. If you expand the physical partition from MacOS, you'll probably need to update it in Windows "Disk Management". In Windows it's easy. Right click the partition on the disk and click "extend volume". Now that I wrote that, I realized that you can probably expand the partition right insid
  5. I'm pretty sure Visual Studio is huge, like 30GB. Then Windows 10 uses about 20GB so that's your total of about 50GB which makes sense. There's not really a way that you can make these take up less space besides removing them. I would recommend expanding the partition.
  6. It was probably just condensed with other panels on top or below it.
  7. @homeap5 is correct. One disk cannot have multiple partition schemes on it.
  8. I don't have experience with AMD graphics cards, but on the Nvidia side I can use NVENC to take the load off the CPU and put it on the GPU which greatly improves my performance. You should check if you have a similar option for an AMD card in the settings menu here:
  9. As @Electronics Wizardy said, remote desktop doesn't give the best user experience, especially over wifi. I would second buying two powerful laptops, but if you're sure you want to stick the the powerful desktop PC, I'd run a hypervisor like Proxmox and set up two Windows virtual machines. Then you could both remote into your separate VMs simultaneously.
  10. I have two Dell U2414H's and they have 2 HDMI, one Displayport, and one Mini Displayport as inputs. They're a little expensive right now at $230, but I've seen them go on sale for $150. I'm actually waiting for that to buy a third one
  11. There's probably something wrong with it. If you have any important data you should back it up ASAP and buy a new drive. I wouldn't recommend purchasing refurbished storage.
  12. You can either use a program called "cheese" which I think is preinstalled, or create a simple Python program with openCV and perform calculations on the image.
  13. Assuming that the OS handles it correctly by sending a command instead of writing to the disk. https://askubuntu.com/a/604447
  14. I agree with the Ubuntu idea but you can do it even easier with the built-in "Disks" program. Just select the disk you want to format and then click the sandwich on the top right > Format. Then you can pick a new partition scheme and even securely wipe it (although I wouldn't recommend the latter for an SSD).
