I'm moving videos from a backup to a new WD drive, and need to consider formatting a couple of large external drives that are old backups, or move some of the contents and then format them. This has been running for hours now and about 1/3 of the way down the list of folders I tagged to move. I used the USB plug on the front of the desktop, 2 or 3; I have an adaptor to the C-connector port that might speed it up. When I move the next set of folders I'll try that.

Computer drives and their contents are the virtual form of a Juggernaut - ready to roll over the top of you if you aren't careful (or to vanish into thin air if you're careless). I don't know if I can do anything with the malfunctioning drive, other than add it to the stash in the office closet that some day will be destroyed properly. Maybe epoxy them together into a large doorstop.

My order of laundry detergent sheets arrived today, and the fresh scent is pretty mild. Interestingly, today I watched a short video about phthalates, and how they're in many things and one thing is the "fragrance" listed on consumer products. So I'll check into what is in this product.
