  • Hi guys great show thanks for answering my question about getting file details. I get it now: not just in the NTFS headers but inside of the files. Of course movies tend to be large so you'll end up jumping all over the disk/not get anything useful for the next file when you read in a block for the previous. All makes sense now. Pain ... maybe I'll make a utility to solve this I can see keeping a list of files seen already and just getting their properties once. Might not be as accurate if the files were to change but most often these are files that I'm not editing just consuming. I'd just have to check for new files and remove old files and voila reading video metadata for previously seen files isn't needed just a directory scan to see differences.

  • Great show guys!

    About the hardware IDs tip you mentioned. You can easily find the vendor and the device on: http://pcidatabase.com/ 

    It's a pretty good site and I am using it for some time now. Check it out.

    Cheers!

  • Hi,

    I was the one posting about the resolution reset on reboot. I'm using displayport so I can get 10bit per channel color support. I need this for my work in video/animation production. I tried the latest drivers for the monitor but they were already installed, so that was no help.  I did notice that the loading windows screen is at the correct resolution, it's only when it reaches the logins creen that it switches to the 1920x1200 resolution.

  • Re: RAID level detection. No need to reboot and go into the Storage Controller's pre-boot setup. If you know which you are using (i.e. NVidia/Intel), just get the RAID utility from the controller (or motherboard or system) manufacturer's website. This is how I have my NVIDIA  780i-based RAID setup, Actually mine correctly identifies as an NVIDIA RAID5 under Disk Drives in Device Manager. Your mileage may vary...
