Five Apps for working with disk partitions Matthew Nawrocki shares five freeware partition editors that should serve as effective replacements for the tools that come with Windows. Most of us probably have rather large hard disks or SSDs at our disposal. If you like to work with multiple operating systems or need a better way to segregate the storage of data, like separate partitions for media files and apps for instance, it's important to use a tool that can perform the task of slicing up a disk easily and safely. Although all Windows versions since Vista come with a basic, built-in partition manager, it still might be too simple or limiting for some tasks. For today's Five Apps blog entry, we will be looking at five excellent freeware partition editors that should serve as effective replacements for Microsoft's implementation.

Fixing "other files" eating up iPhone storage Last night as i was syncing my 32gb iPhone 3GS i noticed the issue of “other files” taking up almost half the memory on the iPhone, without any information or clue as to why that all of a sudden happened. First thing i did was think through if there were any files i had added to the iPhone or any apps installed that would hog the memory in such a way, but could not think of anything. So i started searching on Google to see if anyone else have had the same problem with “other files” eating up iPhone memory, and there seemed to be quite a lot of people out there experiencing the same issue, but a lack of clear explanations as how you can fix it. A lot 0f the people who has experienced this issue had chosen to do a complete restore of the iPhone, a task that depending on the iPhone model you have could take +5 hours and a lot of headache. Here are the steps that worked brilliantly for me: Step 1: Turn of sync music in iTunes Step 2: Install DiskAid software on computer/mac [ratings]

For most tasks, the disc burning functions built into Windows usually cover all of our basic needs. Personally though, I might want to really get access to under-the-hood settings and fine tune my output. With discs going out of style in this day and age, it might seem old hat to look at some utilities that handle the medium, whether it be CD-Rs, DVD-Rs or even BD-Rs. This blog post is also available as a TechRepublic Photo Gallery. 1. For a burning app that does well as an all-in-one studio without weighing in too heavily in disk space consumption, InfraRecorder is a solid offering for Windows. 2. Although the name might imply that the software is for Windows XP, CDBurnerXP is an excellent utility for all supported versions of Windows, and it has a lot in common with InfraRecorder from a feature standpoint. 3. 4. 5.

One of the biggest complaints about the the new mobile operating system is how easily it drains your battery. There are a few basic things you might be doing to make precious hours of running time slip away. Here are a few quick fixes to keep iOS 7 devices powered for much longer. 1. Background App Refresh The battery-draining culprit that perhaps bears the most responsibility is a new feature called Background App Refresh, whose default is set to "on" in iOS 7. 2.

This has long been a helpful way to save battery life on any device and iOS 7 is no exception. 7. Image: Mashable
Stability of Slopes Stability of Slopes Introduction Gravitational and seepage forces tend to cause instability in natural slopes, in slopes formed by excavation and in the slopes of embankments and earth dams. In practice, limiting equilibrium methods are used in the analysis of slope stability. Analysis for the Case of This analysis, in terms of total stress, covers the case of a fully saturated clay under undrained conditions, i.e. for the condition immediately after construction. where F is the factor of safety with respect to shear strength. therefore The moments of any additional forces must be taken into account. For the case of , values of can be obtained from Fig 3. Example A 45° slope is excavated to a depth of 8 m in a deep layer of saturated clay of unit weight 19 kN/m3: the relevant shear strength parameters are cu = 65.0 kN/m2 and . cross-sectional area ABCD is 70 m2. Weight of soil mass = 70 x 19 = 1330 kN/mThe centroid of ABCD is 4.5 m from O. The Method of Slices where La is the arc length AC.
