Hanging 10 is from hanging your ten toes off the nose edge of a longboard when surfing.

Re: How do you tell when you come back to your PC if Windows 10 has restarted?

Checking whether the PC restarted is a lousy way to check whether a long-running job completed successfully. If it restarted, assume it failed. And use a tool that makes it easy to check whether the files got copied and/or allows you to write status to a log file (see the edit to my previous post)....

Re: How do you tell when you come back to your PC if Windows 10 has restarted?

I guess what I'm asking is, where was I meant to look to see like a "Your PC has updated" or whatever to prompt me to go investigating if my file transfer was done correctly or not.

Or how can I change the behaviour so it won't restart while I'm doing something?

Re: How do you tell when you come back to your PC if Windows 10 has restarted?

Yes, but I know it stopped the transfer because even the file size of a folder is different between the drive I was backing up and where I backed up to, so I know it's not like I didn't select all the files or something silly.

OK so I was doing a manual file transfer (backup) of a 1TB harddrive and started it and left my house and came back six hours later when it was "done". I arrived and there was a lock screen. So I assumed (I'm an ass) that the file transfer was complete. I've since realised 2 days later tha...

Now that you guys mention it, if the Start Menu was actually just Win + X menu instead it'd be ENTIRELY more useful that's how **** it is right now. A **** text menu is leaps and bounds more functional.

Re: Case recommendations requested

Hang on... sticking the computer in a compartment will be bad for airflow. Have you considered this? Like maybe providing some more info on this compartment as some cases have different preferred airflow especially if you're gonna be running an 850W PSU, so I assume a serious GPU.
