Damn computers!!!

First, let me start by saying that I have a very powerful machine I made a few months ago with 32 GB of memory, an AMD Ruzen 2700X processor, USB 3.1 etc. and one of the latest Windows 10 version (1903).

I have been trying for many days now to find a solution to the problem of slow copying of files on Windows 10 without any success.

I have read so many articles and implemented all the solutions without success. The Windows 10 continue to copy as slowly as possible. Max speed 1-8MB/sec (I use to have transfer rates from 80-120 MB/sec).


I had this problem before, some years ago and manage to solve it, but I don't remember how ... hmmm

I don't hope much, but who knows, maybe somebody may have a good solution for this issue.

 

Some of the "solutions" I have try with no success are:

Check the HDD and external media for corruption
Disable the Auto-tuning feature
Turn Off "Remote Differential Compression"
Use a different USB port
Install the latest USB drivers
Disable Drive Indexing
Disable the antivirus
Use the Disk Cleanup utility
Format the USB flash drive in the NTFS format
Change the drive’s Removal policy
Start in safe mode
Use a third-party application to copy the files (TeraCopy)
Reinstall Windows 10

 

You can't imagine how many thousand Windows 10 users have the same problem and ask for help on Internet...

No answers from Microsoft of course...

Hi everybody, [e digicons]:)[/e]  

It was January 2007 when I uploaded the first (not my first) master skin at Wincustomize.

After 12 years and more than 30 master skins, I decide to stop submitting new master skins at WinCustomize.

It's just a matter of taxation and only, I hope you understand. 

Though, I will continue to send free skins to WinCustomize, but I have deleted all ready all my master skins from Wincustomize gallery, it was a very sad and difficult decision.

The only source for the new Premium skins/themes by me will be my site: https://www.adni18.com

Thank you for all your support, I appreciate it very much!

Best regards to all of you,

Nikos - adni18

Unbelievable!!!
I don't know why they doing this...

A new submition, by an author with a nickname juandl11,
is one of my wallpapers with the same name with no change at all!

"his" work:
https://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?authorid=697175

My work it has deleted by me from my library of Wincustomize, as many others for cleaning purposes.
It still can be found in WinCustomize database, if someone from admins is interesting.
The name is Mac XPin both cases.

When they ever learn!

WinCustomize is a great school!
Even if the majority of members here are not children any more( they still have a lot to learn!
I have learn a lot of things for 2 years now, thanks to you, thanks to positive or negative comments to authors and of course, thanks to messageboard arguments, they were all very useful, for one who likes to learn!
I must say there is a quallity in WinCustomize MessageBoard, you can't find very easy in a public MB.
There are some exceptions though, from some persons, but that's life, in any activity of life there are always some bad exceptions.

You may ask why I am writing all this now, because I have spend too many hours to read some long threads in the messageboard those last couple days, (you know the language problem for the foreigners) and I want to share my thoughts about what I have read with you.

Some really nice people, both sides, they have lost control when they have try to express their thoughts, both ways.
No harm is made, both sides they have understand well what is going on and they have turn down their tones.
I hope and I wish the tones remain like this.

Why all this happening, this is the important question!
I can tell you my opinion, it is the only thing I have to offer you about this problem.


Reason 1:
In the messageboard, there are some people who like to make fun to others, no matter if their fun hurts the others or they want to be accepted as clever or perfect ones. This gives a wrong and bad impression to many people who may think that this is WC.
(By the way, we must not forget that this is an Intenational site and not all are knowing the English language well, so this may be another reason of missunderstanding and wrong conclusions).

Solution to Reason 1:
The admins who are in general nice persons, (nobody wants to have an admin in his site who sending away the people), when the see a post that it is not well-meaning or it looks like an offence to another person, they must interact with good words and try to make them understand that this is not an acceptable post for a quality MB, even if they find it that it is correct or fun for them, but offensive for another person.
In that way those x persons they will learn to behave them selves and be nice for everyone and the offended ones will feel that at least they are among friendly people and mates.
We are a community, we must help each other.


Reason 2:
Some persons, are giving bad rattings not only for the quallity of a work, but also for who the artist is and this is some times not fair at all, this is for the bad and the good rates too, so the artists, who are always very sensitive, (how can any one be an artist
without sensitivity?), are geting hurt in a certain away.

Solution to the Reason 2:
The ratting system is very good for the admins and their friends, they are happy to see their high rates, so they find no reason to change it. I don't mean here that they don't deserve high rattings because they do, but this is not the point.
The point is, that very few are giving rates and the ratting system rules in WC, this doesn't happen in any other site, there are rates, but not so crucial as here. Some works disappear because of one bad rate which has been given for personal or taste reasons!
The solution is obvious.



Reason 3:
The moderation of wallpapers. I know and you know very well all the story, no need to repeat it here.

Solution to the Reason 3:
Make a new section for the wallpapers, a second one and put there all the wallpapers and let people deside which of them are going to be in the main Wallpaper section. A certain number of downloads will make a wallpaper jumb to the main Wallpapers section, please no rattings. If people like something let them have it!
A decent name for this second walls section must not have in any way an offensive name.
A slogan like:
"We are not moderating your wallpapers, we let you
decide
" is very friendly and no one can complain and give a headache to moderators.

This site is for the people and from the people!

(I know that Stardock pays for the site )

Wow! Did I wrote so many in English?
Yes I did, because I care!

Please, don't shoot the piano man!
