No I do. But that last delivery guy didn't like it. He wanted to be used on the dining room table.

I run Diskkeeper on the win2k machine I basically use as server almost daily. I use its scheduling features on each hd (a 13gb partitioned c/d, and seperate 200/160/250gb drives) and have never had an issue.

Am I the only one here who uses a UPS on my computers?
nope

i was waiting to see who would come up with the actual solution

There are traders and then there are Traders, hmm?

I'd like one, but by budget doesn't have room for one at the moment.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Must be a PC thing.

Uninterruptable Power Supply I believe. You guys use them in case of storms or what? Never had a use for one over here on the west coast

Re: Defragging drives with shn/flac files?

Seriously, I use one. Two actually. One on my PC and one on my Mac. The Mac is the important one to have it on since that's my work computer.

And I live in California. Don't you have power outages in National City?

SIBLY, what gave you the impression that noone used UPSs?

Re: Defragging drives with shn/flac files?

when my power goes out, my whole place is dark but my computer and monitor remain fully functional for about 20 minutes. I get a chance to save everything and shut down properly. my power only goes out a couple times a year, but I'm very glad to have a UPS when it does.

Re: Defragging drives with shn/flac files?

We get power outages very rarely. I can't even remember the last time it went out. I also can't remember the last time I *needed* to use the computer so bad that I couldn't wait an hour or so. I can see where it would be useful if you do work that you don't save and leave open but otherwise, my computer losing power isn't a significant worry.

Re: Defragging drives with shn/flac files?

Well mine only have about 5-10 min so definitely it's just for saving. If I'm desperate when the power is out, like I was the night it was out for 6 hours, I can use my laptop.
