Thanks to bwv848's very good thread
-- I started this thread. Quoting myself from my new-found friend's thread:
"Yes, definitely get that cooling assembly [for your laptop] soon. Both of my laptops have their cooling assemblies, again, they can get quite warm during double backups, however, they rarely get hot in the proc corner.
And, since we're talking about "hard-drive thrashing" possibilities, perhaps a new thread...concerning the constant monitoring of and the constant backing up of each and every folder and file change via NAS or whatever 24/7 while the computer is on -- that I've heard about across The 'Net."
[I adjusted the quote to fit in this new thread.]
Although 24/7 backups are not what bwv848 is doing, the idea of avoiding "hard-drive thrashing" is an idea that he and I both are concerned about. Letr's begin! Thread question:
Can constant, 24/7, backups, via NAS or whatever, lead to "hard-drive thrashing", can cause the wearing out the hard-drive sooner rather than later?
