Thread Name: Tech: Computer backup - Win10, UPS, external HDD
Subject: RE: Tech: Computer backup - Win10, UPS, external HDD
The article Why Windows must die. For the third time answers a lot of questions about operating systems and security.

I have a local file that is my browsers' homepage also, though I got tired of moving it around to different machines after every tweak, so I host it now via the small amount of space web hosting space my IP made available (I'm grandfathered in, new customers don't get this space). FileZilla quick connect lets me upload my updates easily.

This week was certainly convincing as far as keeping the backup drive disconnected when the backup isn't being updated. I also have different browsers used for different tasks, and I will reconsider using the annoying new Microsoft Edge. Since I have my own homepage as home in that browser, all I needed to do was add a conspicuous link to Google (since Microsoft will only allow Bing to be the default search on that browser).
