  1. That drive was formatted using the Linux ext3 filesystem (as @Master Disaster said above). If you don't want to lose the data, then you have 2 options to access that filesystem. You can either install a third-party tool in Windows to read ext3, or you can download some Linux distribution (example: Fedora or Ubuntu) and make a live USB that you can then boot your PC from to access the files from within Linux. For the Windows tool method, Ext2Fsd is a decent option, although I would highly recommend not enabling write support and just leaving it in read-only. If you
  2. There may be 2 issues here, either your OBS settings are too high for your CPU power, or your router does not handle traffic as well as it should and you are experiencing buffer-bloat. The buffer-bloat issue will be easiest to test first. Go to http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest and run a test. Watch your buffer-bloat and check the letter scores once the test is done. For the potential CPU issue, put your game into Windowed mode and open Task Manager, then click Options > Always on top. Then play around for a bit in Warzone while Task Manager is up on screen on the
  3. Their documentation may be out of date. Try contact their support and ask them for advice on how to proceed. I've had to do that with no-ip before when I wanted to get a wildcard certificate from Let's Encrypt, and they helped me within the same day. Hopefully, get.tech will be able to assist you as well.
  4. Have you updated the UEFI firmware (BIOS) on the board to the latest version? Also, try see if the 3080 will work with your old CPU in, and maybe try reset the CMOS (Load defaults in BIOS) and try again.
  5. You can use the official Microsoft Remote Desktop app. You will need to enable Remote Desktop connections in Windows, then you may have to set up a VPN on your router or forward the port 3389 however that can be unsafe unless you use an extremely secure password. Your other option is to use something like TeamViewer or AnyDesk if you want a more automatic, easier solution without messing with your router.
  6. You can create a service using Automator.app and add a block called Run Shell Script. Then paste this in there, substituting %USERNAME% with your username: open -a Finder.app /Users/%USERNAME%/Library/Application\ Support/.minecraft Test if it works by clicking the Run button (looks like a Play button) and if it works and opens the correct folder then you can proceed. If not, then amend the path and try again. Then Save it as something like "Open .minecraft Folder" and then quit Automator.app. Open System Preferences, navigate to Keyboard, then the
  7. If you used diskpart to "clean" the drive, and Advanced Startup was still working, that's because the majority of Advanced Startup is loaded into RAM as a small ramdisk, similar to Windows PE (Pre-installation environment). If the diskpart clean command succeeded, then you can be sure that everything was deleted as the partition table was wiped out.
  8. It depends on what you expect from it. If you want to play any games more complicated then Minecraft, then yes, it is bad. But if you use it for productivity, browsing the internet and watching videos then it is not bad at all and should perform perfectly fine. If you don't already have an SSD, consider installing one for a very big speed boost. It won't help games run better, but it will make the rest of the system much more responsive. And also, as @ragnarok0273 above said, can you upgrade the RAM? Because 4 GB is a bit low and since the RAM is shared with
  9. Oooohhhhh HAHA yeah that makes a LOT more sense now. Don't worry, we all have our moments. It's okay. Just go to ASUS's support site for that board (the VII Hero X470 just making sure lol) and download the latest BIOS for that board and put it on a FAT32 formatted USB drive. Put the old 2000 series CPU in and update the BIOS, then swap the new 3000 series CPU in and everything should work perfectly.
  10. You could either pin that path as a quick access item, or add an alias or shortcut to it to the Desktop or Panel or something. Otherwise, you could also set it to auto-mount when the system boots and have it permanently mounted in the file manager. Unless you need more than that, of course. But most things can be done by using the terminal to mount the share automatically and maybe setting up scripts if you want to automatically sync files or something? But if that seems like too much of a nightmare, and gFTP works fine for now then maybe stick to using that if you're happy with it
  11. That doesn't sound right, your board is an X570 board, right? The Ryzen 3700X is supported from the first BIOS version. This whole thing is confusing me since it should just work. So basically we have: - ASUS X570 board that works with a Ryzen 2000 series CPU - That same ASUS X570 board does not work with a Ryzen 3000 series CPU - You exchanged the CPU for another and it still didn't work Correct? Even after updating the BIOS to the latest version it still doesn't work?
  12. OK that's great, hopefully it's just a drive because they aren't too expensive compared to some other components in a PC.
  13. Yes, Windows does this weird thing where the entire system locks up if it can't access a disk for some reason, even if it isn't the disk that Windows is installed to. For example, if I plug in a damaged USB flash drive into my system, Windows locks up, and nothing works when I click on things, as soon as I unplug the faulty USB drive, Windows suddenly opens everything I've clicked on and everything is back to normal.
  14. Are there any PC shops around that you could take your board to and have them test if a new generation CPU works in it?
  15. I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I can't say for sure whether it is the CPU or not. If both boards have been updated to the latest BIOS and they both don't boot with the new CPU then that usually means that the CPU is the problem.
