  1. Hello everyone, I have received a reply from the support of EnScape. They stated that MX series from Nvidia meets the minimum requirements just to run EnScape, but such low-powered GPUs are not recommended/ Currently I a not sure how usable is the MX330 on EnScape. On their website, EnScape recommend 4GB VRAM. A recommended lower range from Nividia's line of cards is a GTX 1660 Super as of 2021-8-5th. However, their technical support recommend even a higher 6GB VRAM for a smooth experience with large models and/or detailed rendering. Generally, their website, forums thr
  2. Hello everyone, I am switching from an Asus G551VW (heavy device) to a 2-in-1 for better mobility. Dell Inspiron 14" devices are quite good, but I am reluctant between the Dell Inspiron 7415 Vs Inspiron 5406. Both present comparable specs on paper, whereas the Inspiron 7415 is a newer device with a little bit better size and DDR4 RAM (Vs. LPDDR4), and potentially brighter screen, however, I have to get it shipped from the USA to my region (little concern about the warranty here). Inspiron 5406 features a dedicated graphics processor, which may allow it to run rendering
  3. Hello everyone, I would like to inquire about the support for Nvidia MX330 Graphics (2GB VRAM) on EnScape, since this is the only discrete GPU I could find on 2-in-1 laptops in my country (here I am considering Dell Inspiron 5406) . MX330 is: 1- newer than GTX 660 (minimum example given on EnScape website) 2- comes with the minimum requirement of VRAM (2GB) 3- Runs OpenGL 4.4 and newer https://enscape3d.com/community/blog/knowledgebase/system-requirements/ . Nevertheless, I am not sure if the MX series is applicable to EnScape, or doe
  4. The overpriced $H!T you are talking about is not tha overpriced compared to other places. It seems you have shopping inside a shell dude. At least I tried help from my side, but seems you missed the whole point.
  5. Ryzen APU would do the best overall. However, if you do not need the graphics performance, then an i3 may provide more slick experience when it comes to multi-tasking (assuming that you may reach the ceiling of the APU processing power, which is good anyway on Ryzen). Regarding the parts, I believe you can still buy something from Dubai, as there shops around, especially in Jafillyah. Watch this vid, this guy is shopping in this place (Alain Plaza). You can still get a warranty valid inside the UAE. You can get a Ryzen build for a good price (IMO). Check minute 6:50
  6. Hi again Thanks for the reply I have been checking some threads on different forums. Interestingly, I have found some, including this one, which refer to a shortcoming in SnapRaid, the it does not provide real-time protection. https://hardforum.com/threads/unraid-or-snapraid-not-sure-which-one-to-go-with.1801222/ The turn-around suggested by the guy called "saiyan" is to set a windows scheduled task to get the realtime action of the parity drive. Any thoughts ?!
  7. Another thing regarding SnapRaid+DrivePool How does it behave when it comes to drive defragmentation ?! Thanks
  8. Sounds good. Other things that came to my mind are: 1- Since the drives are going to hold different files, instead of strips of files as in the case of FreeNAS & Raid: - Is it possible to treat the drives as separate disks, by mounting them as separate volumes and organize how and what files I want to save on each of them ? This may help in data organization, as well as volume sharing over the network. - How can I distinguish drive is holding a certain file or certain group of files ? (don't know if this is possible on unRaid, but I know that it keeps different
  9. I would go for what the guys suggested. You can get a used i7-6700 to minimize the cost to the minimum and still get a high performance. Keep everything else as it is, and for the RAM, just in case you approach your ceiling, then go for an upgrade, otherwise, wait until the prices go down a bit. RAM is expensive these days. I got my dual channel kit for less than 70$ back in 2016, now the same item is sold on Amazon for approx 150$.
  10. That's an idea. Another thing about SnapDrive+Drivepool. Does this support 2 parity drives ?! I may like getting some extra protection here, even by sacrificing one drive, and having the peace of mind. Also, if I have 4 x 2TB connected drives, can you please explain how would 1 x 2TB drive hold data as a parity drive for the other 3 x 2TB (6TB total) drives ?!
  11. I would like to use wired connection, however, I have a single ethernet port on my MoBo, and it may not be practical to have a very long cable to drag with me allover the house. I guess 5Ghz would provide bearable speeds, and I can switch to wired connection, whenever I am in my room.
  12. Regarding restart, I was referring to having the configurations of Windows update and software installation set after rebooting the VM as in teh case with the local OS reboot. Furthermore, if I shutdown the VM on unRaid, I would be left with nothing to access, other than the unRaid page which is pretty much useless. So, how would I launch the VM again without referring to another computer and use the unRaid webpage control panel ?!
  13. Can I share the pool I create in Windows wirelessly through an ethernet connection to a wireless access point/router or a client ?! I know that a client would receive the wireless signal and provide that through ethernet to the device. But I am not sure if the storage would be recognized as part of the network through the client's ip or not. This works for repeater bridges & WDS from my experience.
  14. In this sense, there would be no chance to monitor the CPU using Corsair Link, or configure anything about OC from within the OS using Asus AI Suite (I have to refer BIOS whenever any change is needed). If I have my Virtual Machine terminated, would I have the files saved the VM folder you described deleted with the termination of the host OS ?! Regarding having the disks in my PC, I usually highly prefer to keep my data on external storage, in case the system fails or suffers from malware infection. More importantly, I access my data from multiple computers. Thus, a NA
  15. I see. Correct me if I am wrong please. You are saying that: - Linux would detect the Raid array as normal drives attached to the system. Thus, I can access my data on them normally, but about the parity drive ?! - The same drives can be utilized in a pool created in Linux, which would keep NAS functionality up and running even when I switch from Windows to Linux and vice versa. So, as a result, two pools created in different systems, would use the same drives. However, if I create two arrays using the same drives, wouldn't there be some mess, or would be fine
