How Do You Repair RAID 5 Array After Destruction?

There are many times that you might need to repair RAID 5 array and it is most often surprising because you would never guess when you will need to repair RAID 5 array. This happens most of the time when hard drive when your files get corrupted and instead of fixing them you just skip the scanning part. You will know if the file is corrupted when you plug your USB (universal serial bus) to the laptop or desktop and it shows a popup that says your hard drive needs some scanning and fixing, and the other option is just to scan it for errors.

If you own a RAID 5 hard drive then you can repair your hard drive by clicking “scan and fix” when instead of the auto play, the scan dialog box pops up. Instead of just choosing scan only, choose scan and fix because as written beside it, it is recommended to fix it and attempt to recover the corrupted files in the hard drive. There are several ways how you can avoid getting these by simply ejecting your USB correctly and not justly. There is also a way how you can avoid these and one of them is by installing anti-virus in your hard drive.

Out-Competing The Competition – The RIGHT Way

Most businesses have failed to learn from all the other competitive disciplines before them. You fight one competitor at a time, and you develop a strategy that beats competitors one at a time. There is no competition – there are only competitors.

I tried to understand why so many businesses fail to build competitor-specific strategies. I believe this is based on three reasons. First is the real lack of strategy at the brand level. I believe that while strategy is widely employed in plotting the future of the firm in terms of what businesses to buy, what countries to enter or what resources to own, little strategic attention is given to how one brand will beat another brand in the market.

If strategy is the way a brand endeavors to differentiate Continue reading

Living Longer Tips: Are You Using Them?

lltWow, would I love to inherit my 93-year-old Nana’s longevity. This pistol in pantyhose still has her own Manhattan apartment and only recently retired from her bookkeeping career. She surfs the Internet, plays bridge regularly with her gal pals, and can tick off the birth date of everyone in our clan, right down to the youngest great-grandchild. There’s just one hitch, my husband reminds me: Nana is on his side of the family.

Point taken. But experts now say that I might actually have more to gain by following Nana’s example than I would if I shared her bloodline. In fact, an explosion of research has found that how you approach life and the choices you make play major roles in how long and well you’ll live. Here’s what experts on aging say you can do to stay young at heart for a long time to come. Continue reading

Let’s Talk Anti-Aging for Women

ltaafwChances are good that if you own an antiaging cream, it’s for your face. We’re so focused on our reflection that we forget there’s other territory affected by time: the skin below our necks. While this thought may depress you (“Oh, great, now I’ve got to start looking for wrinkles on my back!”), it’s meant to be encouraging. “The skin on the body is so neglected that just by regularly using something–anything–you can make a visible difference,” says Nicholas Perricone, M.D., assistant professor of clinical dermatology at Yale University.

Products for the body are more effective than ever, because skin-care companies–including Estee Lauder, Jergens, Lubriderm, Neutrogena, and Olay–are tweaking formulas used in facial products to target thicker-skinned, less-sensitive areas. That often involves increasing concentrations of active antiaging ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin C, and retinol. So read on to find out how to get younger-looking skin–without having to join a gym or police what you put in your mouth! Continue reading

The Diary Of A Perfect Wife??

pwIt is a matter of pride with me that the refrigerator is always stocked with my husband’s favorite brand of orange juice, and that the bathroom cupboard has a full complement of his beloved Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap and that absurdly expensive Eau Sauvage stick deodorant. I make fresh lemonade every weekend in the summer (a seriously labor-intensive process); in winter the freezer is lined with individual serving-size containers of homemade peasant soup. Not to put too fine a point on it, I wait on this guy hand and foot.

In the interest of full disclosure, where he far outscores me (I keep score; he doesn’t) is in the generosity-of-spirit part of the marriage (which some might argue carries a higher degree of difficulty than dropping shirts off at the laundry). Take both kids to school so I can sleep a few extra minutes? Sure, he’ll do it. Go willingly with me to my 20th high school reunion, where, for five hours, he’ll have to listen to people he barely knows tell stories about people he hasn’t met? Of course. By contrast, when he asked me to accompany him to his college reunion–let the record show that I’d already been to three previous ones–I responded as I would to a root canal: Fine, if I’m sedated. Continue reading

Losing A Child: Taking The Best From The Worst

gjI called her Potinka. It’s a silly name, I know, and I don’t even remember how it came into being. I can only tell you that as time went by, it seemed to perfectly describe this elfin child with a squinty grin and tinkling giggle.

She entered our lives in February 2000; my wife and I lived in Indianapolis then with our son Graig. Roughly nine months earlier, my son and his new girlfriend, Jessica, had gone off to Chicago to celebrate his 22nd birthday, a celebration spent largely–as he later told it–in bed. Just days after returning, they had a terrible fight, the first of far too many. Jessica took off. They made an effort to patch things up via telephone, but each call ended in an angry hang up, and they soon lost touch.

Until one September day when we arrived home to find a note taped to the door. It read: “Graig, you are going to have a daughter. See you in court.” My wife, Kathy, could not let it go at that, and took a personal hand in bringing about a reconciliation between Graig and Jessica. Sure enough, within a month she’d persuaded the two of them to move in together nearby, so they could cultivate some basic sense of partnership before the blessed event. Continue reading

Getting Rich Isn’t Easy: These Rules Can Help

wgwWomen get wealthy in a lot of ways. They start their own businesses (Jenny Craig, Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewart), run giant corporations (Pat Russo at Lucent, Anne Mulcahy at Xerox), or forecast the stock market (Abby Joseph Cohen at Goldman Sachs). They achieve their positions through brains, talent, drive, and luck. Once they make their money, they’re usually pretty smart about handling it. So let’s look at Continue reading

Mapping Makes Money, Full Stop

Why are more businesses turning to mapping? The software is becoming easier to use and less expensive. Mapping software is designed to link information from a company’s back-end databases and to display data such as sales patterns, results of marketing campaigns, or concentrations of potential clients. Many programs are now meant for sales or marketing employees rather than techies. The Internet is also playing a role, allowing for more users at a lower cost.

mmmfsTerritory alignment has always been mapping’s most classic use. In their basic forms, mapping programs help managers decide the most effective deployment of their sales and service forces to balance account loads and achieve the biggest profits. They can also help managers recommend which accounts a salesperson should try to cover each day, ensure territories are geographically compact, and estimate Continue reading
