What storage case for the P70

Q: What storage case for the P70

Hi all,When I last looked (and every time before that that I can remember), the P70's accessories do not list ANY sort of case. While I understand that Lenovo does not list their Professional Topload, Professional Slim, or Essential Slim case as these cases' descriptions state that they are specifically for up to 15.6" laptops, why does Lenovo not make a case for a 17" laptop? Or do they make one, and just not list it in the accessories? It would seem to me that not listing one when they do make it would be a bad business decision. In any event, what carrying case do you 17.3" owners use? Would you recommend it to others? Thank you. ~Microfishd1

Preferred Solution: What storage case for the P70

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What storage case for the P70

This has been an issue with all 17" ThinkPads, unfortunately. Case choice has always been limited for the larger machines, especially since my preference has always tilted towards rolling cases, with large storage capacity. About 9 months ago, I fortuitously discovered a Samsonite "Mobile Office" model for about $60 at COSTCO, which holds a P70 snugly and has lots of room for accessories, office supplies, a tablet, etc. This case is slightly too short for my W700 but just right for the P70. While not likely the most durable, it is certainly adequately robust, reasonably well made and probably could last for a decent period, if treated with moderate care. I certainly recommend it, especially for the price. There seem to be several variations listed online, some with swiveling wheels (mine has fixed axle orientation). Make certain your choice specifically states that it can contain laptops of up-to 17.3"

I created a Storage pool with the following setup. Three 3TB drives with parity all in an external enclosure with eSata and USB 2/3 ports. It was connected via USB when created and had production data loaded and tested without any issues.
After a few days of use I decided to see what happened when I tried to access it via the eSata port. No luck, due to a driver on the eSata card issue with Win 8. So I powered all back down and plugged back in via USB. At this point the Storage pool went
into the state as per the screenshot below. Any suggestions to either fix the issue and/or retrieve the data that is in the volume?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. When I press the power button, the power button light turns amber, I hear some fans spinning, and the CD drive spinning. However, it never gets to the boot screen (or any screen). If I open the case and press the power button, however, the power button turns green and the computer works fine (loads all the way up and functions like normal). If I close the case after it has started, it continues to run fine. I'm guessing / hoping it's not the mother board or power supply that has directly gone bad... but maybe there is a connection or something? that changes from when it's closed to when it's open. I've heard of something like... the motherboard is shorting out by touching the case... but I'm not really sure where to look for that / how. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

A:Solved: Computer boots fine when case is open, but won't boot when case is closed.

I have an Acer Aspire X1700 (Details
It's about 2 1/2 years old now. Came with Windows Vista, I upgraded it to Windows 7. Also has a newer video card than what came with it.

Anyway, The PSU fan is getting really obnoxious, it gets really loud (more or less like a lawn mower). I have taken the thing apart and have tried every suggestion given to quiet it down, which it does for a whole week or two. This is a small form factor PC, so to even take the power supply out you have to basically take out everything else just to get to it. I have looked for replacements but they are very obsolete. It's only 220W anyway, so i'd like something a little more powerful.

What I want to do is get a larger case that I can use the same hardware is (motherboard, drives, etc) and purchase a larger power supply for that case. 220W really limits the PC. The small case holds a lot of heat even with all fans cleaned and working properly. Even just taking a CD/DVD out that was in it is very hot. I want a case with better airflow than this one.
I really am not sure what kind of case to get that will meet my needs. I don't want anything really fancy. If possible I'd like to get it off newegg.com

Any suggestions would be great.

Has anyone tried the new Storage Spaces feature in Windows 8? Your experience with it?

More specifically:

1. If this system is used on a shared network with other operating systems such as XP and Windows 7, can the storage pool drives be set up as shared, and become visible and usable from the XP and Win 7 machines?

2. If you have a Network Backup drive, like WD My Book Live, will it see and back up the Storage Spaces configured drive just like any other drive on the network?

A:Storage Spaces (Storage Pool) Experience?

I've only set this up on a Windows Server 2012 configuration therefore I cannot provide the exact steps on how to set one up in a client environment. That being said, a storage space/pool is essentially a virtual disk that resides on one or multiple physical disks allowing you to accumulate free space. For example if I have multiple servers with free space on their data drives I can then create a storage pool to accumulate this. To allocate this storage pool/space to a user or machine you will need to decide what you wish to do with it. Below are a couple of examples of how:

Share via Windows Folder Sharing (UNC Path)Use iSCSI to use the current ethernet infastructure allowing you to assign the storage pool/space a drive letter to the client machineIn a server environment you may wish to use it for DFS (Distributed File System) to maintain redundancy

Personally I use my storage pool as an iSCSI drive for which i have partitioned.

You can only use the free space of a non Windows install drive. To my knowledge you cannot overcome this with partitioning.

In relation to your second question, you will only able to use the share as a safepoint backup if it is shared via Windows Folder Sharing. For example: \\computername\share

Also you will need to make sure that the NAS is on the same workgroup as the Windows 8 machine hosting the storage pool otherwise it will not be able to find the share. Hopefully this is what you asking however pleas... Read more

Now another question comes up regarding modifying the cooling of my case/ computer etc.

I was wanting to carve two 3 1/2" holes in the top of my case, for two 12cm fans. Now I know fully how to do this, however, I was wondering which direction the air flow should go. Should the fans blow into my case? (Like I suspect) Or should I have them blow out?

The orange highlights are the fans I wish to add. Which direction should I have the air flow setup?

A:Case airflow question before modifying case

I would have them sucking air out. Hot air rises, and the side panel fan will hit the VGA's mb, etc and spread out, also they are right next to the PSU. You wont have any really big difference either in or out , but I would have those two pulling the hot air that manages to make it to the top of the case out. and negative pressure tend to run a bit cooler overall.

I set the maximum shadow copy storage space to 8 GB in my Vista and thought I should never worry about the space in my system disk. However, I have just found the Used Shadow Copy Storage space is bigger than the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space at the moment:

Used Shadow Copy Storage space: 10.326 GB
Allocated Shadow Copy Storage space: 10.573 GB
Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space: 8 GB

Do you know why and how to limite the Used Shadow Copy Starage space?
Thank you for any suggestions!

A:Used Shadow Copy Storage space is bigger than the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space !

It would be helpful if you filled in the System Specs. That way if you post on another issue people answering don't have to ask the same questions about your hardware over again, or search for the post with the info. Just push the specs link in every one of your posts.

I'm not sure how they measure the space usage. But 8 GB sounds like only a couple of restore points. How big is the HD? I suspect when deciding to discard an old restore point it looks at the current usage. If under the limit, it keeps all the old and makes another. That's just a guess on my part. But you can try a few different max numbers and see how it acts for yourself. As Yogi Berra said, "you can observe a lot by watchin'".

Q: Storage

I recently bought a 300 GB hard drive to replace my 40 GB and i was wondering how im supposed to move my info if i only have 1 cable to connect my hdd to my motherboard

i know about norton ghost but i have around 20 GB of info on my current hdd so i cant really put it all on a dvd


If you are using an IDE hdd then you should have 3 ports on teh cable. one that connects to teh motherboard, one that makes a drive the master and one that makes it a slave. just format the 300G drive then when you restart your computer just move teh info over. also windows xp has a program on it that can make a backup of your computers software/files.

ok I have a newish dell Inspiron laptop that I bought maybe two or three months ago. Basically nothing on it except for Microsoft office and some of my personal documents Web browsers etc. The laptop has a total of 500 GB of storage, and now the system is telling me that my storage is full, even though I know I couldn't possibly have done anything to use that much storage. I have been trying to see where all the space on the hard drive went, but all the system gives me is 444 GB of my 465 GB reserved for System files!!!??? Honestly I'm not that technologically illiterate, but I don't understand how this happened at all. Could it be some sort of a virus or possibly correlated to my recent update to Windows 10? (Refer to picture) Has this happened to anyone before?I haven't downloaded 400 GB worth of info in my life, and there's no way available to see what exactly this space is for. The PC didn't come like this, if I recall it showed the space as available. In any case there really isn't 400 GB of information on the computer, and it's really frustrating. Does anyone know anything about what this might be or what to do about it? I appreciate your help!

Q: Storage

Hello! I've been using my HP Stream 13 for almost a month and I find a very confusing part about the storage. My computer has 32 GB storage and 2GB RAM. To save storage, since the internal memory is minimal, I inserted a 128 GB usb 3.0 and store all my files there so that internal storage won't decrease. However, the memory still keeps decreasing as I continue using the Laptop. I tried using CC Cleaner so that somehow I could delete unnecessary files. But still it didn't work. So from time to time I check storage about the allocation of files, what type increases so bad that it eats up the memory.  Then I noticed that the System & reserved is increasing so as my temp files plus I couldn't delete the temp files. At the moment, my free storage is 2.01 GB. This is bothering me. Is this normal? haha if not, what could I do about this? By the way my laptop is not partitioned.

Hi,i have a dell demension 4550 with 40 gig HD.I have 23 gigs free space,and i would like to increase my storage.
How should i go about doing this? thanks in advance. :knock:

A:More HD storage

The quickest and easiest way to get more storage space is to purchase an external hard drive that connects via USB. All you do is plug in the drive to the USB port and you have instant storage. You can easily find one at a Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart?, or at an online store such as www.newegg.com. Another, more permanent, option is to purchase an internal hard drive via the same methods listed above. Just make sure it is not a "Serial ATA" or "SCSI" drive.

If you want to clean up your existing hard drive, you can use some of the programs found here: www.snapfiles.com/freeware/system/fwdiskclean.html

Hi, I am looking into purchasing a P51, I can see that there is one place for a normal 2.5 inch HDD/SSD and two M.2 places for additional SSD's. However, when configuring the P51 on the Lenovo's website, under the category "First Hard Disk Drive" I am given the option of selecting one primary hard driver which is a normal 2.5 inch form HDD, and then I am able to select an additional 2.5 inch form HDD under the category "First Solid State Drive / Second Hard Disk Drive". Hence, I end up with TWO 2.5 inch form HDDs. My question is: where does the additional 2.5 inch form HDD go?  Or is it a mistake on Lenovo's website. Thanks!

I need an opinion. I am looking for a external harddrive 500gigs. I have seen the ones that are already together ( free agent, WD book) and I have seen where you can buy a hard drive and a case and put them together yourself. which route is best, and recommendations?

And the drive will be used just to store data not run games or movies from.

Any help would be great.

You can do a little shopping and compare. The enclosure can be had for 12 bucks and the drive around 100 if you dig around. Check for specials and watch for refurbished drives. Newegg, Geeks, PacificGeeks, there's a bunch of reliable places to search. Some come with backup software that may make the assembly a little more expensive. And you can get free software that'll do the same thing. Good luck with your search.
