Hoe formatteer ik mijn 1000 GB backup disk?

mkfs.ext4 -m 1 /dev/device


mke2fs -t ext4 -c -c -L backupdisk -m 1 /dev/device

tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/device

fsck -pf /dev/device

mke2fs – create an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem

mke2fs -c -c -j -L backupdisk -m 1 /dev/sdd1

-c Check the device for bad blocks before creating the file system.
If this option is specified twice, then a slower, read-write
test is used instead of a fast read-only test.

-j Create the filesystem with an ext3 journal. If the -J option is
not specified, the default journal parameters will be used to
create an appropriately sized journal (given the size of the
filesystem) stored within the filesystem. Note that you must be
using a kernel which has ext3 support in order to actually make
use of the journal.

-L new-volume-label
Set the volume label for  the  filesystem  to  new-volume-label.
The maximum length of the volume label is 16 bytes.

-m reserved-blocks-percentage
Specify the percentage of the filesystem blocks reserved for the
super-user. This avoids fragmentation, and allows root-owned
daemons, such as syslogd(8), to continue to function correctly
after non-privileged processes are prevented from writing to the
filesystem. The default percentage is 5%.

-t fs-type
Specify the filesystem type (i.e., ext2, ext3, ext4, etc.) that is to be cre‐
ated.  If this option is not specified, mke2fs will pick a default either via
how  the  command  was  run (for example, using a name of the form mkfs.ext2,
mkfs.ext3, etc.) or via a default as defined by the /etc/mke2fs.conf(5) file.

tune2fs – adjust tunable filesystem parameters on ext2/ext3 filesystems

This filesystem will be automatically checked every 21 mounts or
180 days, whichever comes first.  Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.

hdparm – get/set SATA/ATA device parameters

hdparm -q -S 241 /dev/sdb

-S     Set the standby (spindown) timeout for the drive.  This value is
used  by  the  drive to determine how long to wait (with no disk
activity) before turning off the spindle motor  to  save  power.
Under  such circumstances, the drive may take as long as 30 sec‐
onds to respond to a subsequent disk access, though most  drives
are much quicker.  The encoding of the timeout value is somewhat
peculiar.  A value of zero means “timeouts  are  disabled”:  the
device will not automatically enter standby mode.  Values from 1
to 240 specify multiples of 5 seconds, yielding timeouts from  5
seconds to 20 minutes.  Values from 241 to 251 specify from 1 to
11 units of 30 minutes, yielding timeouts from 30 minutes to 5.5
hours.   A  value  of  252  signifies a timeout of 21 minutes. A
value of 253 sets a vendor-defined timeout period between 8  and
12  hours, and the value 254 is reserved.  255 is interpreted as
21 minutes plus 15 seconds.  Note that  some  older  drives  may
have very different interpretations of these values.

How to open a Philips Universal Remote Control SBC RU 760?

My Philips SBC RU 760 is lost after it has fallen on the ground (Philips, how do you test your new remote controls?). A metal part, inserted to give it a better feeling a assume, came loose and ruined the circuit board. This is not a plus for my love hate relation with Philips products as you can imagine…..

I hope you can repair yours wit the help of this information.

ffmpeg tips (en mencoder)

ffmpeg -i infile.mpg -map 0:1 -vn -ac 2 -ar 48000 -ab 256k -ss hh:mm:ss -t hh:mm:ss outfile.mp3

-map = selecteer de stream (zie de output van ffmpeg voor meer informatie)

-vn = Disable video recording

-ac = aantal kanalen

-ar = Set the audio sampling frequency (default = 44100 Hz)

-ab = Set the audio bitrate in kbit/s (default = 64)

-ss = Seek to given time position in seconds. “hh:mm:ss[.xxx]” syntax is also supported.

-t = Set the recording time in seconds. “hh:mm:ss[.xxx]” syntax is also supported.

Disable autorun in Microsoft Windows


Disable AutoRun in Microsoft Windows

To effectively disable AutoRun in Microsoft Windows, import the following registry value:



      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]



To import this value, perform the following steps:

  1. Copy the text
  2. Paste the text into Windows Notepad
  3. Save the file as autorun.reg
  4. Navigate to the file location
  5. Double-click the file to import it into the Windows registry

Microsoft Windows can also cache the AutoRun information from mounted devices in the MountPoints2 registry key. We recommend restarting Windows after making the registry change so that any cached mount points are reinitialized in a way that ignores the Autorun.inf file. Alternatively, the following registry key may be deleted:


Once these changes have been made, all of the AutoRun code execution scenarios described above will be mitigated because Windows will no longer parse Autorun.inf files to determine which actions to take. Further details are available in the CERT/CC Vulnerability Analysis blog. Thanks to Nick Brown and Emin Atac for providing the workaround.


Microsoft has provided support document KB953252, which describes how to correct the problem of NoDriveTypeAutoRun registry value enforcement. After the update is installed, Windows will obey the NoDriveTypeAutorun registry value. Note that this fix has been released via Microsoft Update to Windows Vista and Server 2008 systems as part of the MS08-038 Security Bulletin. Windows 2000, XP, and Server 2003 users must install the update manually. Our testing has shown that installing this update and setting the NoDriveTypeAutoRun registry value to 0xFF will disable AutoRun as well as the workaround described above.
