    Question Finder + a lot more inaccessible after switching and deleting drives

    Question What is considered to be a good idle temperature for a SATA ssd?

    I have a Samsung 860 QVO, and i've noticed that my idle temps are bit higher (maybe it's because of summer temperatures?) but while just browsing with chrome I sit at around 40-45c idle, and earlier today I noticed that it peaked at 55c while I was playing in VR.

  5. [SOLVED] Question about Molex to SATA cables

    I am aware of the old adage "Molex to SATA, lose all your data." but I don't have enough money for a good PSU at the moment, so I have no choice but to use one of these adapters.

    Question Why is my only partition on this disk split up?

    There were previously 2 partitions on this drive but I've moved everything on the other one somewhere else and erased it, expanding the other volume step by step.
