latest more info on the pesky @googleuk #backupandsync 100% cpu #bug only occurs with SSD drives

latest more info on the pesky @googleuk #backupandsync 100% cpu #bug only occurs with SSD drives

two similar PCs one HP8440 i5 Win 10 Pro and the other a HP8560 i7 Win 10 Home so was it cpu or os causing the problem ! no i think it was the SSD drive as once videos had been copied onto HP8560 google b&s didnt use 100% cpu

steps to reproduce

  • get 24G of videos (a dump from your dashcam is pefect)
  • put on a PC with a SSD
  • run goog B&S
  • cpu goes to 100%

workaround

  • get 24G of videos (a dump from your dashcam is pefect)
  • put on a PC with a normal HD
  • run goog B&S
  • cpu does not go to 100%

even @googleuk have bugs in their apps especially their #backupandsync or #googledrivesync app using 100% cpu and 100% bandwidth #fail

even @googleuk have bugs in their apps especially their #backupandsync or #googledrivesync app using 100% cpu and 100% bandwidth #fail

but there is a workaround to the 100% upstream bandwidth bug just goto

  • preferences
  • settings
  • network settings
  • choose 50% of your adsl/fibre bandwith as your MAX upload bandwidth

the @ROBLOX #ROBLOX error code ID = 17 can be caused by a upstream bandwidth hogging bug in the @googleuk #backupandsync app #bug #fail #workaround

the ROBLOX error code ID=17 can be caused by a upstream bandwidth hogging bug in the @googleuk #backupandsync app so ask your parents to pause or exit google backup and sync on all their computers and try playing ROBLOX again

@googleuk please fix the 100% CPU and 100% upstream bandwidth hogging bugs in your #backupandsync app

@amazon @amazonuk @amazonmp3 cd #autorip wishlist bug in detail

it is very simple ! some autorip CDs are also available WITHOUT autorip from third party amazon “sellers” and when you add a link to a amazon autorip CD to your wish list or use it in your amazon associate account the autorip CD is DELETED and REPLACED with the non autorip version thus losing AMAZON and/or YOU the price difference in this case its DK CD with autorip  @ £10 v DK CD without autorip @ £6

Thats a 40% revenue loss !

The OFFICIAL response from amazon is as follows:

AutoRip is eligible only for the CD’s that are purchased directly from Amazon.co.uk  (ie, Dispatched from and sold by Amazon) and not from sellers, if you wish to get AutoRip for the CD’s then, while placing the orders from your wishlist, make sure you are purchasing it from Amazon.co.uk (by clicking the respective ‘Add to basket’ button which is seen beside ‘Amazon.co.uk‘ of that CD).

Please follow the steps below:

1) Add the item to wishlist.

2) When you decide to purchase, click the title name in your wishlist.

3) When the item opens in next page, click ‘Add to basket’ button which is seen beside ‘Amazon.co.uk‘ on rightside of the page under ‘More Buying Choices’

4) And proceed to checkout. In this way you can be sure that you purchase the CD directly from Amazon.co.uk and getAutorip for the same.

How many amazon customers do you think will actually remember go through all that PAIN to get the autorip version ?

The @amazon @amazonuk @amazonmp3  cd #autorip wishlist bug could cost @amazon and @amazonassociates £Ms but @amazon don’t care ! WHY NOT ?

see amazon associate links below for £10 and £6 version THEY are the same since amazon have replaced the AUTORIP version with non autorip in BOTH cases
