  1. I've just set it up. I'll see how it is. Thanks! If anyone else has any other recommendations, please let me know!
  2. I interpreted this here: , my mistake. You have to turn it on to see the options! One of the only downsides, in that case, is that I can't use a different account to log into the NAS with to enforce quotas, unlike Backup and Restore where I can.
  3. That's a good point. I suppose I could use Robocopy or Xcopy. If it gets dire enough that I can't find what I need, I'll definitely consider it.
  4. @wall03Hi, Thanks. I've looked at file history, but it doesn't seem to give me much control over what I backup, I have a SDD and a HDD I want to backup, even through the Control Panel I'll update my original post.
  5. Hi there. I'm looking for backup software for my Windows 10 machine. Needs: Exclusion of folders and files Can backup to NAS (via SMB/NFS or WebDAV Nice to have: Cheap Encryption There is data across my SSD and HDD I want to back up. I've already used Duplicati 2, it's very customisable, but doesn't handle file access issues well and doesn't get along with Bitdefender. I've also tried File History, but it doesn't seem to let me customise what gets backed up. I'm looking at using Backup and Restore (W
  6. Moving from VMWare to Hyper-V is awful and seemingly impossible.. I'm going to give up. It's a aesthetic thing anyway.
  7. I do have Hyper-V enabled, since I was testing to see if it'd add more vEthernet adapters than Application Guard and Sandbox, so I might look into if it is worth moving to Hyper-V. The only downside is, I suppose, is that I'd not gain any advantage without uninstalling VMWare and Virtualbox. I suppose I don't need-need them if Hyper-V works well enough.
  8. I suppose I could have a PowerShell script to run every boot to disable the adapters I don't want - that could work. The main problem is I've looked on loads of websites with no result, so I'm thinking it might be something that's just not possible without a janky UAC prompt at every boot.
  9. Yes, Hence why I was wondering if I could disable the Hyper-V network adapters for the VirtualBox and VMWare network adapters
  10. @leadeater / @Akolyte Hello there. I use VMWare Primarily, but for older OSes VirtualBox works better. I don't use Hyper-V explicitly, but for WSL, Application Guard (and Windows Sandbox, but I don't use it), Hyper-V components are enabled for those. I don't need Hyper-V Network adapters for the other Hypervisors since i'll never want to make Hyper-V connect to these Hypervisor's adapters. I don't use them all at once, so I'm not too concerned about performance, I just want them hidden or similar if possible
  11. I have Hyper-V features enabled for Application Guard and Sandbox, but also use VMWare and Virtualbox. How can I stop Hyper-V network adapters being created for these adapters? This is really obnoxious. Any ideas? Thank you!
  12. Best way of turning it off should be your BIOS.
  13. Yes. But this is a very rare event - the likely-hood of the 4G connection failing is very low. I haven't had it happen in quite a while - and rebooting the modem and router fixed it. If I end up being able to use router B in bridge mode or with a modem - I'll just set my ASUS router to fall back to the DSL?. Thanks
  14. I run a Pi-Hole so that'd be a non-problem - otherwise i'd use
  15. I don't have one that has three network interfaces unless I used USB network adapters. I'm happy with my current setup. I don't particularly want the energy costs, and the effort and learning to set it up and maintain it. There's other people in the house, and I want it to be reliable. It does sound like something I'd be interested in - but it's not something I want to put the effort into right now.
  16. I can change the gateway from the router via DHCP. It's not pretty, as DHCP leases and all that jazz, but for an emergency situation where the 4G is down - It does not matter much. I don't get much via DSL? as i said earlier, and it was about £2 more than the phone line alone. Thank you for your points - they're good, but they don't apply in my situation.
  17. I won't want to switch to the B router often. I'll only have it because it was just as cheap as having a phone line on it's own. I can't seem to use Youtube-DL on my 4G internet, so i'd switch to the B router for that reason, for example. Or if the 4G connection dies - I'd switch the DHCP gateway to the B router. It's a fine price to pay though, barely 10 mbps on DSL? vs 80mbps on 4G
  18. My ASUS router can do that between USB Modem and WAN. (My main internet connection is via 4G) But I don't think I can specify on demand which gateway my PC uses - and also I don't know if I can use the B router in bridge mode or with a modem. I don't really have the hardware availiable to make a pfsense box either.
  19. Okay. That would work too. Thanks! If anyone has any extra thoughts or comments please comment them!
  20. They're both on their own cable on the same switch, see my diagram. It might involve switching the IP of the PC, but I don't think so if i'm only changing the gateway
  21. Hello If I had two routers: A and B, both connected to the main LAN and their own internet connection, could I change which router I was using to connect to the internet? I was thinking: Router A is primary and will be the DHCP server. IP: Router B is secondary and will have DHCP turned off. IP: On my machine, I change the gateway from to I now use the internet connection of Router B. Would this work? If I need to clarify, please let me know. Thanks!
  22. It's just the free text placement! It's just such an annoying thing. Once you start it seems to be a non-problem, so since i'll get free access to it, i'll use it. It's really a small price to pay considering my old method was lots of Google Docs files in folders. Thanks!
  23. Hello there, I really like the look of OneNote and Evernote, but i'm not sure which one to choose. OneNote PRO: I like how it's organised CON: Free text placement Evernote PRO: Normal text placement CON: Paid [Can anyone tell me about what it's like using free?] Is there any alternatives to both of these that's free? I have access to full OneNote.
