I'm tempted to just send you my head unit to be upgraded and change the setup after you write a post that makes it seem easy:bustingup: I'm lucky to change backgrounds[emoji38] don't suppose there's some app I should download that helps unlock things and make changes easier?:popcorn:

Use Allway Sync to back up the data from one to the other. It's a little cumbersome compared to the old stand alone unit... but the peace of mind has been priceless.

During my last CPU/mobo upgrade I switched from an ivy bridge i5 over to a Ryzen 1600x. Couldn't ignore the price to performance advantage. Plus, not having as many problems with specter patches has been nice.

Oh yuck, I can totally relate, I ran a striped array for a long time thinking I was protected... right up to the moment it crapped itself and wouldn’t rebuild ☹️☹️

After that I ended up doing exactly what you did, split my 7 drives between two PCs but rather than using another “utility” to do my copies and backups I used MSSynctoys with Windows Scheduler to kick off my events.

Good luck brother, I wish you all the luck!

Check in the Grand Prairie area, there are yards along Hwy 80.

I picked these up in late November. I hit them around Thanksgiving with some sandpaper and hand polish, but then it was December. Time to go get warm for awhile!

Anyway, while I was away, I went to the Autogeek HQ in Stuart, FL. I'll expand more on that later, but the purpose here, I will share that I ordered some smaller backing plates for my trusty old porter cable 7424. The arrived today and I was quick to get out there and test the plates and new pads...

Here's what these junkyard parts looked like after a little sand and love on the right...
And the right one is what they'll BOTH look like after some good ole machine polish...

Excellent work. Always surprises me at how much better they can look after a Polish and seal. Been looking for another set of headlights cheap to cut open and mod before polishing. Now I'm even more motivated. :thumbup:
