I'm trying to downsize my system partition but some files are trolling me. I've tried defragmenting with Auslogics Disk Defrag, Defraggler and UltraDefrag, but to no avail.
WTF can I do?
/g/ is for the discussion of technology and related topics.

Opinions on this software?
I work for an IT company as a general support monkey. We're basically a Microsoft company, only some of the core services run on Linux boxes that typically we don't manage.
Myself I don't lobby for one OS or another. I like to suggest, different OS's suit different purposes, and sometimes simply different tastes.
I have experience with Windows and OS X (which I do like a lot.) But none really with Linux, that is to say, I've used it but not for longer than an hour at a time and never as a main OS.
I want to have a good...

Would also like to hear from anyone else on /g/ who works as a general tech support for SME's etc. Which distro do you often come across in the industry?
I know a lot of /g/ is CS based but I'm not really at that level (although I find it interesting.)
Battle station thread. Also, the struggle is fucking real.
The TV on top swivels and tilts so I can point it at my bed when I'm not at the computer. It, for the most part only gets used for movies or sometimes emulators when people come over. I moved my whole desk over a bit and didn't want to add new holes to my apartment wall, that's why it's in a bit of an awkward spot in the middle
So are these dead pixels? The cursor is visible under the pixels.
Is bitcoin dead ?
Is there any point in investing huge money on mining hardware at this time ?
A friend of my boss apparently bought some mining hardware for $25k but he knows nothing about computers, so they're asking for my help. What's the current state, is it worth it for a normal pay? Will the man get rich?
I didn't spend any money. If anything, I will get some money anyway. Someone else bought the rig without knowing much about computers.
So I'm just going to set up the mining for him and maybe maintain it. I should get some low-wage for ~1hrs of work a day
Does Arch Linux respect my privacy?
Ok /g/entiles, best site for domain buying.
And hosting too.
Most people use goddady for domain, how are they not shit?
I have a 1TB HDD sitting empty, not including backup-files. What to fill it with? Only /legal/, cause im a pussy.
Since I didn't even know about Fi until I heard about it from my mother (nerd card revoked), I wonder if anyone here has any more information on it.
My biggest question is how long until other manufacturers come out with phones that support the dual-network? I really want to get on Fi, but I don't want to buy a phone without an SD card.
Any rumors? Are other manufacturers going to bother? Is it actually functionality already supported by most modern phones?
Fi is awesome in my area. My coverage is even better than Verizon in most places. Device support is probably only going to be Nexus at least until Fi is out of beta. What are you storing on your phone that you need a card for?
>What are you storing on your phone that you need a card for?
Music and podcasts, mostly. I've had a Nexus 4 for years and I'm constantly bumping up against the storage limit. I don't stream because the places I spend most of my time (bedroom, garage, gym) have poor signal.
I think the two new ones have 128gb options.
>Plastic phone casings handle drops better than aluminum.
>Manufacturers convince everyone that aluminum is more "premium" because it's metal.
>Can't buy phones without aluminum backs anymore.
Fuck you, Apple/Samsung/HTC/Moto

> Chromebook with extra RAM
Is this the biggest ripoff of all time?
What are essential Firefox add-ons? Do you use any extension to browse 4chan?
How do companies like OutletPC or Newegg even stay in business when Amazon offers better prices and better service?
I've been looking through all of them for a cheaper price, even when I found something that had a better price on OutlerPC, Amazon beat it by offering free shipping. Just out of curiosity, does anyone use online tech stores besides Amazon, why?
Does Amazon really offer better products and a larger variety PC hardware/software wise?
I bought from Newegg when I first got into computers and stopped because I live next to a Microcenter but I never thought of Amazon as a place for a good selection of PC hardware.
I order from Amazon all the time now but not PC stuff.
