Enable or Disable Write Protection for Disk in Windows 10

Enable or Disable Write Protection for Disk in Windows 10

Enable or Disable Write Protection for Disk in Windows 10: If Write Protection is Enabled, you won’t be able to modify the contents of the disk in any way, which is quite frustrating if you believe me. A lot of users aren’t aware of Write Protection feature and they simply assume that disk is damaged and that’s why they aren’t able to write anything on the drive or the disk. But you can be sure that your disk isn’t damaged, in fact when write protection is enabled, you will receive an error message saying “The disk is write-protected. Remove the write-protection or use another disk”. As I said most of the users consider the write protection as a problem, but in fact, it is actually mean to protect your disk or drive from unauthorized users who intend to carry out write operation...
Enable or Disable Disk Write Caching in Windows 10

Enable or Disable Disk Write Caching in Windows 10

Disk Write Caching is a feature where data write-requests are not immediately sent to the hard disk, and they are cached into fast volatile memory (RAM) and later sent to hard disk from the queue. The benefit of using Disk Write Caching is that it allows the application to run faster by temporarily storing the data write-requests to RAM rather than the disk. Thus, increasing the system performance but using Disk Write Caching can also lead to data loss or corruption due to power outage or another hardware failure. The risk of data corruption or loss is real, as the data which is temporarily stored on the RAM might get lost in case of power or system failure before the data is flushed by writing it to the disk. To better understand how Disk Write Caching works consider this example, suppos...
How to Prevent Hard Disk from going to Sleep in Windows 10

How to Prevent Hard Disk from going to Sleep in Windows 10

How to Prevent Hard Disk from going to Sleep in Windows 10: It is possible that after the recent Windows 10 update, you may notice that your hard disk turns off after a specific period of inactivity. This is done in order to save battery which in turns improves the battery life of your PC. This setting is configured using “Turn off hard disk after” setting in Power Options which lets users set a specified time (of inactivity) after which the hard disk will power down. This setting doesn’t affect SSD and once the system is brought back from the sleep state, it will take some time for the hard disk to turn ON before you will be able to access it.

How to Set Disk Quota Limit and Warning Level in Windows 10

How to Set Disk Quota Limit and Warning Level in Windows 10

If you have more than one user account then each user gets their separate account but the amount of data which they can store doesn’t have any limitation, in such case the chances of users running out of storage are very high. Hence, Disk Quotas can be enabled where the administrator can easily allocate the amount of space each user can use on a specific NTFS Volume. With Disk Quota enabled, you can avoid the possibility of one single user can filling up the hard drive without leaving any space for other users on the PC. The benefit of Disk Quota is that if any single user has already used their quota then the administrator can allocate some additional space on the drive to that particular user from another user who might not be using the additional space in their quota.Administrators can...
How to Format a Disk or Drive in Windows 10

How to Format a Disk or Drive in Windows 10

If you want to install Windows or you got a new hard drive, it’s important to format the drive before using it to store your important data. Formatting means deleting any existing data or information on your drive and setting up the file system so that your Operating System, in this case, Windows 10, can read and write data to the drive. Chances are the drive might be used with another file system in which case you won’t be able to install Windows 10 because it won’t be able to understand the file system and therefore, can’t read or write data to the drive. To solve this problem, you need to format your drive with the proper file system, and then your drive will be ready to use with Windows 10. While formatting the drive, you can select from these file systems, FAT, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, or...
How to Convert GPT Disk to MBR Disk in Windows 10

How to Convert GPT Disk to MBR Disk in Windows 10

MBR stands for Master Boot Record which uses the standard BIOS partition table. In contrast, GPT stands for the GUID Partition Table which was introduced as a part of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). Although GPT is considered better than MBR due to the limitations of MBR which is it can’t support disk size larger than 2 TB, you cannot create more than 4 partitions on an MBR Disk, etc. Now older operating systems still support MBR partition style and chances are if you are using an old system then your system already has an MBR Disk partition. Also, if you want to use 32-bit Windows, then it won’t work with the GPT Disk, and in that case, you need to convert your disk from GPT to MBR. Anyway, without wasting any time, let’s see How to Convert GPT Disk to MBR Disk in Windo...

Convert MBR to GPT Disk Without Data Loss in Windows 10

Convert MBR to GPT Disk Without Data Loss in Windows 10

GUID stands for GUID Partition Table which was introduced as a part of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). In contrast, MBR stands for Master Boot Record, which uses the standard BIOS partition table. There are many advantages of using GPT over MBR such as you can create more than four partitions on each disk, GPT can support disk larger than 2 TB where MBR can’t.MBR only stores the boot sector at the beginning of the drive. If anything happens to this section, you won’t be able to boot to Windows unless you repair the boot sector where GPT stores the backup of the partition table at the various other places on disk and emergency backup is loaded. You can continue using your system without any issues. Furthermore, GPT disk provides greater reliability due to replication and ...

Enable or Disable Enforce Disk Quota Limits in Windows 10

Enable or Disable Enforce Disk Quota Limits in Windows 10: If you have more than one user account on your PC then enabling Disk Quota makes sense, as you don’t want any user to use up all the disk space. In such cases, the administrator can enable Disk Quota from where they can allocate each user a specific amount of disk space on the NTFS file system volume. Additionally, Administrators can optionally configure the system to log an event when the user are near their quota, and they can either deny or allow further disk space to users who have exceeded their quota.

Once the user who has exceeded their quota is allocated further disk space, you need to do so by taking the unutilized disk space from other users on the PC and then allocating this disk to the user who has exhausted their limit. any...
