Ask Slashdot: Asynchronous RAID-1 Free Software Backup For Laptops?

DamageLabs Re:OS? (227 comments)

Those swiches are only relevant if copying from FAT to NTFS or viceversa. They do not help with dir dates being wrong - defaulted to current.

As I said, strange that I still use a nearly extinct tool - NT Backup - to get a near identical copy of dir trees. And on both filesystems, especialy on NTFS, it is very obvious that and when the tree was copied.
Ghost is also a very useful tool that still does a great file by file volume copy, but it never could do a tree to tree copy on Windoze.

Ask Slashdot: Asynchronous RAID-1 Free Software Backup For Laptops?

DamageLabs Re:OS? (227 comments)

Are you speaking of some other underlying file system date?

Check the directory created date and the "." and ".." sublink dates on FATXX.

Then get back to me.

On NTFS, the dir modified date also gets updated. But that is by design of the filesystem.

Sadly, the only way to, in this day and age, get fully identical copy of a directory tree is by cloning the whole drive. With all other data. While NU could clone dirs easily some 20 years ago.

Ask Slashdot: Asynchronous RAID-1 Free Software Backup For Laptops?

DamageLabs Re:OS? (227 comments)

What about SyncToy? Seems to work pretty well, at least it does for me.

Synctoy doesn't do created date nor automagically sync on network drive / local drive discovery.

Too much manual work.

Robocopy doesn't keep the ACM dates across volumes. So it is certainly not a 1:1 copy.

The only thing that comes close, but still not there completely, is the legacy MS (Veritas) backup utility. And that one is far from automated.

Google Chrome 28 Is Out: Rich Notifications For Apps, Extensions

DamageLabs Re: --disable-new-menu-style no longer works (90 comments)

There are even older bugs. Like the runaway GDI usage.

But the unified UI experience tops the telemetry deduced decision making list of moronic google employees.

Obviously a new user.

Things have been breaking apart since the early twenties versions constantly. And rarely for the better.

New 25-GPU Monster Devours Strong Passwords In Minutes

DamageLabs WPA keys per second? (330 comments)

Not seeing anything about WPA.

You can pull those truly out of thin air and since they are rehashed 4000 times brute forcing those is slow even on most modern hardware. Generally in the range of a 1000 to 5000 keys per second.
More than a thousand years for a 8 character password. And you can't even use a shorter password on WPA.

GPUs do change the picture a bit.

The fact that this comment has been modded insightful and not funny is a very real proof that the Slashdot readership is far removed from the hot grits days.

James Bond Film Skyfall Inspired By Stuxnet Virus

DamageLabs Re:No wonder it sucks! (187 comments)

Well, he is just a kid. Probably had some imaging tools on the local server and couldn't be bothered to get the disk out. A beginner's mistake!

But you didn't look closely enough. Those were open racks with motherboards on them. The red lights provide a nice movie style heartbeat status display.
