HI, We used to have a Win 7 Pro pc running as a file server in our small office - 4 or 5 client PC's attached, all running Windows variants. This was fine, but after 5 years I decided to replace the file server before problems started developing. This is now an i7 processor, 8GB ram and 2TB hard drive running Windows 10 Pro, but throughput across the network has plummeted. No changes have been made to the network infrastructure so I am thinking that a bottleneck has been created with Windows 10. I have created a batch file which …

As I was looking for a webhost to host some important files of me that I need at various locations, I 'discovered' what I already knew: filehosting is expensive! :) As I'm exploring some alternative web file-sharing methods, I heard some people found a way to share files from their local computer to the web. When they enter a specific IP-adress or URL, they will be able to acces the files from their computers (read-only acces). I'm aware of the fact that my computer has to be power on any given time to acces my files, but that's not a …

If piracy and illegal downloaders really are killing the music industry, how come more singles have been sold this year than ever before and people who file-share spend more money on legal releases than those who do not file-share? I have to admit, it's not been a good week to be on the side of law and order and the established way of things as far as the music business is concerned. While the UK Government pushes ever onwards with the Digital Economy Bill which promises a robust legal and regulatory framework to deal with illegal file-sharing, and continues to …

What might kill illegal downloading do you think? The long ([URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story220692.html"]and mostly ineffective[/URL]) arm of the law perhaps, or maybe a sudden (and unlikely) [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story235178.html"]feeling of overwhelming love[/URL] for the poor music and movie industry? According to the [URL="http://www.globalwebindex.net"]Global Web Index[/URL] the answer could be simple and obvious: why bother downloading something illegally when you can watch it or listen to it perfectly legally using streaming media services? YouTube has certainly showed a thirst for streaming videos, free of charge to the end user. The Global Web Index research reveals that 64% of Internet users watch video clips this way. …
