    A general technical question. I recently had a flash drive malfunction on me. Anyone know a reliable make and model to buy?
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I have used both Sea gate and WD. Both have been great. I recommend NOT buying from eBay, there is a hack you can do to make them appear larger than they actually are (making an 8GB look like a 64GB Flash). stick to amazon or other reputable electronics dealers.

    Thanks! I'll probably try one of each, since I need two of them. I'm backing the files up this time!

    I usually just get a TB external HD and use that for back up (they plug in through USB just like flashdrive) then also a cloud storage. if I need it anywhere there is the cloud but I still have a hard copy stored if needed.

    I don't trust or understand the cloud. I think it's over my head.

    It was at the top, then I merged from the other thread and it got bumped down...

    I think the person at the top is a distinguished, talented, greatly admired gentleman of rare taste and discernment who has never lied once in his entire life until now and what a strange feeling!

    I forgot about this thread.

    Sometimes, when I boot up my PC with Windows 10, a window opens saying it can not connect to Onedrive. I do not even know what Onedrive is, and I would like to know how to stop this window from popping up.

    OneDrive is Microsoft's cloud service, like Dropbox. It is probably set as a startup process. In the Search bar, type Startup Tasks. It will bring you into the Startup Apps page. Just change it and any others you don't want starting at Startup to Off.

    Thanks! I tried that and it was enabled somehow. I disabled it!

    Is there any downside to disabling the OneDrive?

    I've been on this thing all day since doing so, and I think I accidentally enabled it in the 1st place. Everything is working fine. Almost wish it wasn't since I've spent almost $400 on books the last couple of days. Things that come up once and you take them or most likely never see them again, so I took them.

    I've discovered one thing that's changed when I disabled OneDrive--I no longer have the auto-save function in my Office programs--Excel, Word, etc. No big thing, but interesting.

    They must be using the cloud for that feature. Just go old school and remember to save.
