Advantage 1 of sym-link (transparency): Only management software has to know of the existence of sym-links. They just work. Shortcuts only work if the software trying to open them knows that they are a short cut. Advantage 2 of sys-link (chainable): A sym-link will allow a link to a link to a link … 3: They are often stored in the inode (this may not ...

I have figured out how to speed up Samba. Alone Samba is actually more tuned then I have realized. I stopped trying to tune the software itself and stepped backed and looked at my hardware. I noticed my Samba server was only running a 10/100 Ethernet port. I bought and installed a 10/100/1000 along with the 10/100/1000 router and all Cat 6 cables. Now my ...

You just follow the exact same steps you used to install 13. You simply need to make sure you point it to the right partitions. Boot into your installed Linux system and run lsblk. That will print a list of your partitions and where they are mounted (if they are). For example, on my system, I get: $ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda ...

because will have to get rid of Debian eventually and I cannot risk to lose access to Windows. Is there a way to do just that? The least action way (and my recommended path) is to just stay with grub for now and once you're done with Debian boot into recovery console from the Windows CD and run BOOTREC /FIXMBR which will make the Windows boot loader the ...

I can't say that my own 19 year experience of running Linux supports your assertion that windows boots more stably, but here are some things that will effect what you are seeing: Filesystem caching Linux uses caching on all filesystems unless told otherwise. This improves speed and response times for disk reads and writes by userspace programs, as they ...

Samba is a good choice for your situation. If you've decided to go with Ubuntu, there's a guide here. This page should set up exactly what you're looking for. If you're new to Linux, my recommendation is to read that guide for understanding, before attempting any commands. Don't run a command if you're not sure what it will do first. The command man man ...

You can do similar things for anything that ...

You might have to use forward slashes (/) to talk with LINUX/UNIX servers c:\pscp c:\some\path\to\a\file.txt user@remote:/home/user/some/path

Figured it out on my own : When Windows converts drive to MBR from gpt it does not do it correctly. It leaves the backup gpt partition table. Then Linux tools see MBR and backup gpt and do not know what you have or want and just assume you want to erase entire drive to make it consistent. So you need to remove the GPT entreis that were left/didn't get ...

The issue likely isn't permissions-related (at least not on the Linux side). Once the recipient downloads the attachment, the file is owned by them. So is anything they take out of that zip file.
