What is the point of using an iTunes Server on a NAS such as Synology DS214Play

Trying to set Up a Synology DS214Play NAS Server. I clicked on a few bundled appplications including iTunes server. My Network is about 4Pc's plus an iMac.
The iMac is my Master Station for Music. All CD's are imported on it and iTunes Store Purchases.
When I came to set up the Synology Cloud Station which syncs Music, Video, Photos between networked devices on the iMac I noticed lots of activity and the Music Sync Folder filling up.
Next day switching on the iMac and going to iTunes all the library of 26GB of music had gone together with playlists.
I was able to go into the Time Machine App and restore back to yesterday and the music started reloading but still did not appear in iTunes.
I then found that "Music" had moved from the normal position in Finder to User and the iTunes Folder structure was there.
Moving the "Music " folder back to the previous position in Finder reinstated my Library in iTunes

Alternative methods for sorting out the iTunes library were found.

In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.Alternatively, depending on exactly when and why the library went missing, there may be a more recent .tmp file in the main iTunes folder that can be renamed as iTunes Library.itl to restore the library to a recent state  See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.When you get it all working make a backup
 Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device

I've noticed more of these missing library posts of late and a common factor to most since I started asking is AVG Anti-Virus. It seems in some cases it might be at least part of the reason why the library file disappears. Try excluding the iTunes folder from any AV scanning process.

I do query the point of having iTunes on the Server.
Response from a Forum
You experience is almost exactly the same as mine and you are asking the exact same question. And as you may have already gathered from this thread, there appears to be o point whatsoever in the iTunes server. The approach I have taken is to change the setting in iTunes on my laptop to point directly to the folder on my NAS drive where I store all my music. Note that this is different to just adding a folder to the library. By doing this it means that the iTunes folder where iTunes stores it's database, apps, music, videos, etc will be on the NAS instead of on my local PC.
However, to access your music and videos on apple devices through the native apps you still need to synchronise via iTunes so it will copy the files to your device. This of course means that you cannot access all your music/videos from your iPad/iPhone if you have a large volume of media as it will not all fit.
The only way to access all your media from your ipad/iPhone is to use non-Apple apps. For example my NAS drive comes with an app that plays music and will access it all directly from the NAS. And I'm sure here are a number of third party apps that will do the same.
So basically, my advice to you is to ignore the iTunes server, it is a complete waste and I feel sorry for the developers who built it, and third party companies such as those selling these NAS drives should stop using it as a marketing tool for their own products as it also reflects badly on them (in my opinion anyway).

External Links to open a New tab

Internal vs. External Links

With Grateful thanks to Marianne......

Links that take users to another page on the same website are internal links. Internal links should never open in new browser tabs, but rather the same tab the user is on. Opening new tabs of the same website is redundant and confusing for users. If it’s the same website but a different page, the site’s navigation menu is still visible to users. They can simply use the menu to navigate back or elsewhere if they need. Keeping users in the same tab also helps them better understand the navigation flow of your site. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to open new tabs if the links take users to the same website.

External links, however, should open in new tabs. These links take users to a different website. Many designers make the mistake of opening external links in the same tab. There are many problems with this that designers need to know about, you are left with no return if you close the external link page. To retain an open tab back to your site use the

All you have to do is add "target=_blank" right after the URL to which you are linking. This opens a brand new tab and a new window. To get back to your site, all your visitor has to do is click the tab with your site open.
Now, you might be thinking to yourself, "I can use that all the time!" If you use this code on every single one of your links that simply links to another page in your site, then the visitor will wind up having several of your site's pages open in several different tabs and windows.
While you might think that's a great way to allow an easy means for your visitors to go back to already visited pages, your visitors might view that as an extreme annoyance. If each of your links opens a new window that means your visitor will have to close each of those new windows. The annoyance factor on that alone could drive the visitor away from your site forever.
If you are concerned that your visitor is a web newbie and they aren't sure about the Back button, then by all means make sure that you have links on your page so that the visitor can easily find their way back to where they were. Once upon a time, many sites relied on breadcrumb trails so that a visitor could visually see, and click, back to where they were.
This practice died off due to many questions on the trails purpose and how they worked. The best practice is to ensure that you have clear and obvious links along either the top of the page or running along the left side of the page. That way, the visitor does not need the Back button, you don't need an unintentionally confusing breadcrumb path and you most certainly do not need to use "target=_blank" for each and every link.
Use "target=_blank" judiciously and only for links that take your visitor to other sites. 

Open a Page in a New Window

To have a link in which, when a viewer presses it, will open a page in a new window, you need to listen to this:
Insert something like this: within < and> of course. I can't type that here as it will convert the coding to the link only as open google in a new page. what you want is target=_blank.

A HREF="" TARGET="_blank">Open Google in a New Window

And look at what happens:
Open Google in a New Window
You see?

Back-Button Fatigue
When you open external links in the same tab, you create back-button fatigue for users. Every time the user goes to an external website they have to hit the back button to go back to your website. If they decide to click the links on the other website, they have to hit the back button even more times to get back to your site. This is a lot of unnecessary work for users.
Opening an external link in a new tab allows users to explore the other site as much as they want without having to hit the back button again and again to go back to your site. All they need to do is click the tab your site is on. There’s no excessive back-button pressing or long wait times.

Internet Explorer 11 cant left click to open images after search

This is happening because IE11 is clashing with the Google toolbar.

If you uninstall the toolbar, it will work fine, put it back in and you cannot left click an image.

I have not discovered a fix yet, only the workaround y of right-click/view image.

I suppose the only thing that we can do is wait for a Google toolbar update.

Acronis Disk Director 11 Home messes up Windows 8.1 Big time , unable to Boot.

PC would not Boot Up.
The only thing that worked was good old fashioned DOS.

I have been trying to use Acronis Disk Director or rather the application within it called OSS (Operating System Selector) to start up either Windows 7 Pro or Windows 8.1 which are on 2 different SATA Hard Drives.
All seemed to be well at first but I noticed that Windows Updates which needed to reboot were taking ages to shut down.

Eventually I got the dreaded message
"Starting Acronis Loader....
No configuration file present.
Press Enter to reboot"

I have just found this from Acronis Support as Feb 2014

Acronis loader error message

The current release version of DD (11) is not certified to support windows 8. While some of it's underlying architecture may work with the current release of DD, compatibility cannot be guaranteed.

You can say that again.
No attempt using the Acronis Bootable Media would repair the OSS.
Even the option to restore from an Acronis Backup using TrueImage 2013 failed.

Most likely, Acronis Startup Recovery Manager was activated somehow and now it doesn;t work correctly. To resolve the issue, you need to fix MBR (Master Boot Record). Please do the following:

Insert your Windows 7 DVD in to a DVD drive and restart your PC to boot from this device (you may be prompted to "press any key" to boot from a CD/DVD drive). If you have a recovery partition instead of the installation CD, choose this during the advanced BIOS options stage (on Dell PCs this often accessed by CTRL+F11).

After a little wait for loading, you will be presented with the Windows 7 installation screen. Select your language and keyboard input method and then click OK to continue.

Then select Repair your computer from the bottom right hand corner (not the install now button). Clicking this will search for installed versions of Windows 7 on your computer which you can then attempt to repair.

Once the scanning has finished, you will be prompted to select your Windows 7 install drive. Usually there is only 1 option. Click this and then the Next button.

A list of recovery options will then appear, from which you should click Startup Repair. Windows 7 will then scan your computer for any potential problems. If any problems are found, you will be prompted to select the appropriate course of action. Please select an option to repair your boot configuration, reboot and the issue shouldn't occur anymore.

None of the above worked but the Windows 7 and Windows 8 DVD did give me access to a cmd prompt that actually would access commands/

To effect a repair at the >cmd prompt, enter:

BootRec.exe /fixmbr
press Enter
If successful a message will report.

you can also substitue the /fixmbr with thes commands:

/FixBoot. Writes a boot sector onto the system partition to start Windows

/ScanOs. Scans all disks for Windows installations and displays them to you.

/RebuildBcd. Scans all disks for Windows installations and prompts you to pick the ones you want to add to the BCD.(Boot configuration data or Boot selector)

Disable fast startup if causing dual boot problems

Why disable ‘Fast Startup’:
Failure to disable the fast startup option can result in ‘Check Disk’ (chkdsk) running when installing Windows 7. You may also no longer see the dual boot menu the next time you turn on your computer. Also if you have more than 1 disk drive chkdsk will run each time you shut down from within Windows 8 and then boot to Windows 7.

Fast Startup in Windows 8 is designed to close and reopen by fast booting (Hybrid Boot), it has left your system in a partially hibernated state, with the drive mounted and according to Microsoft "effectively saving the system state and memory contents to a file on disk (hiberfil.sys) and then reading that back in on resume and restoring contents back to memory."
Turning off the “fast startup/hybrid boot” option fixes the chkdsk problem during the installation of Windows 7, the missing boot menu problem (more on this later) and the multiple disk drives “Dirty bit” issue when booting to Windows 7.Windows 8 may take little longer to boot but not all that much as to be meaningful. Boot times for Windows 7 are unaffected and the boot menu will be displayed each time you turn on or reboot the computer.
How to disable ‘Fast Boot’:
Make the following changes to the Windows 8 Power Options.
1. Control Panel --> View by: Small Icons -->Power Options
2. Select "Choose what the power button does" on left hand side.
3. Click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable".
4. Uncheck "Turn on fast startup" under shutdown settings.
5. Click on the ‘Save changes’ button.

Super Fdisk Utility

If your Windows Install DVD can not repair and reinstate your MBR try this,

Probably the Best Way to Delete a Corrupted MBR Master Boot record.
You will need your Windows Install DVD to recreate it.
or at cmd prompt try Bootrec,exe /fixmbr
Bootrec.exe /FixBoot
BootRec.exe /ScanOS
 BootRec.exe /RebuildBcd (to add OS)

If all else fails

Super Fdisk Utility
 Super Fdisk is a driven disk partitioning utility.
With Super Fdisk you can:
     - Create primary, extended and logical partitions
     - Delete primary, extended and logical partitions
     - Format FAT partitions
     - Backup or Restore the MBR, Partition Table, Boot sector    
     - Hide and unhide FAT, NTFS/HPFS, EXT2, EXT3, SWAP partitions
     - Activate/deactivate a partition
     - Show the partition table
     - Show characteristics of harddisk
     - Erase MBR for a harddisk
     - and more...
     Flexible and Comfortable Graphics User Interface.
     Super Fdisk supports all partition types. The original Fdisk
     program doesn't allow you to create more than one primary
     partition. Super Fdisk does, therefore it's a powerful tool
     for creating any combinations of partitions. This can be
     extremely useful for system administrators and OS deployment.
*** Notes for Using And Running ***
  You'd better run Super Fdisk under pure MS DOS environment,
because partition operations are independent of operating systems and they are
very 'low level', some functions such as 'Create Partition', 'Format
Partition', 'Delete and Secure Erase' can only run under pure MS DOS
  Of course, you can run Super Fdisk under the MS DOS prompted
window in WINDOWS 9x or WINDOWS ME. To execute Super Fdisk,
just type 'sdisk' at MS DOS command prompt or double click
sdisk.exe by mouse in the path of Super Fdisk. Also you
can use mouse to choose 'Create Emergency Disk' from 'General' menu
to run Super Fdisk under pure MS DOS environment.
  When restore partition table to harddisk, the master boot sector will
be overwritten. So you need 'Disable' the 'Anti Virus' option in BIOS
  When running, the partitions circumstantiality will be displayed
using chart and tables. The cylinder diagram on the top displays
the positions of all the allocated partitions.
  The type and other detail parameters of partitions are listed in
a table on the middle of screen. About the meanings of these parameters,
please refer to 'About Partition Table' in Help files.
  Before operating on a partition you must select it first. To select
a partition, just click the partition in the diagram or in the
table. And also you can use Up or Down key to select.
  In order to prevent mistakes, all operations except 'Create Partition',
'Format Partition', 'Delete Partition' are not written to harddisk
immediately. They are saved in memory buffer instead.
  While completed and there is no error, you can send out an 'apply'
command by CtrL+S key or select 'Save' on menu 'General'.
  Then Super Fdisk will write all your operations to harddisk one-off.


 The Super Fdisk will be given in a packed ZIP-file (

SeaTools finds mystery Drive USB-1394 Generic Flash HS-CF

If running Sea tools for windows and you have a card reader built in a USB drive not reported under Windows Disk Management or Explorer will be found.
You can even run a sea tools test although no media is inserted ?
These phantom drives are the USB Mass Storage Media Card ports permanently connected to your Generic USB Hub.

Un-associated USB Hub ports do not have assigned drive letters.
 When a USB mass storage type device is inserted in an un-associated USB Hub port, Windows will:
1. Automatically assign the device the next available (unassigned) drive letter
2. Then reclaim the letter when the USB device is unplugged.

My system reported a S.M.A.R.T. error on the drive.

Explains what SMART alerts and errors mean and what you should do next.

You may find that your system reports that a S.M.A.R.T. error has occurred on the hard drive.  SMART errors are a near-term prediction of drive failure.  It is important to realize that the drive may appear to be functioning normally.  Even some diagnostic tests could still have a PASS status.  A SMART error is a prediction that the diagnostic test will soon fail.
The system will report an error when a S.M.A.R.T. threshold has been met.  The drive monitors several kinds of performance areas.  A few of these may include read retries (didn't get it the first time), slow spin up, high temperature, excessive bad sectors and many other areas.  The specifics of these thresholds are not available as product information and they differ between designs and certainly between drive manufacturers.
A system SMART error means you should backup your data as soon as possible and maintain consistent backups. 

A SMART warning based on too high of an average temperature is common and can sometimes be fixed by improving ventilation.  First check to see if your system has adequate ventilation and that all fans are in good working order.  If you find and fix a ventilation problem and the average temperature drops to a normal range, then the SMART error should go away.
Otherwise, when a disk drive issues a SMART error there are no methods to repair the underlying problem, whatever it is.  If the drive is under warranty, this is a valid reason to consider a replacement.  You can also download and run the SeaTools diagnostic test. SeaTools will test the S.M.A.R.T. parameters along with several other separate tests allowing a complete hard disk health check.
If a SeaTools test generates an error, that means the drive will need to be replaced. For more information on warranty replacement please visit the Warranty Services Page.

Use Ex-Fat Format if Fat32 is not available in Windows Explorer

Using an external drive between Mac and Windows computers can be a hassle, since you constantly have to reformat it to fit which computer you're using it on. Instead of reformatting it all the time, just use the much more platform-independent exFAT and never format it again. P
Windows' default NTFS is only readable on OS X, not writable, and Windows computers can't even read Mac-formatted HFS+ drives.
FAT32 works for both OSes, but has a 4GB size limit per file, so it isn't ideal.
The exFAT file system is a much simpler option.
exFAT has been around for awhile,  Essentially, it's a file system that's both readable and writable on any modern Mac or Windows machine (sorry, Leopard users). All you need to do is format the drive on a Windows machine and you're good to go. Note that you can't format it on OS X, you have to format it on Windows for it to be compatible with both platforms (Update: A lot of you are noting that OS X formats these just fine, so your mileage may vary).
  1. Open up Windows Explorer  and right-click on your drive in the sidebar. Choose "Format". Or use Computer and Right click on the Drive Icon
  2. In the "File System" dropdown, choose exFAT instead of NTFS.
  3. Click Start and close this window when finished.
From then on, that drive should work fantastically between Mac and Windows machines. It won't work with Linux unless you install Linux's exFAT drivers, but for most people, exFAT is just about perfect.

    How to set up email account for in Microsoft Outlook

    After hours of fiddling around I have found that Outlook 2003 is not supported and access is via after installing the icloud app on your Windows PC.

    So if you are on Outlook 2007 or later and want to add an email account this is what you do.

    Add new email account as IMAP, then

    Settings are
    incoming server:
    outgoing server:
    leave SPA unchecked

    More Settings; Advanced
    Server Port Settings:
    Incoming server IMAP: 993
    Check This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)
    Outgoing Server SMTP: 587 (or 25 if unchecked )
    Uncheck  This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)

    At present it creates an account and receives Emails and Notes created on an iPad but trying to reply gives an error message and will not send.
    Still trying to resolve.

    Mail server settings

    Refer to your email app's documentation for information about how to use these settings. iCloud Mail uses the IMAP and SMTP standards supported by most modern email apps. iCloud does not support POP.

    IMAP information for the incoming mail server

    • Server name:
    • SSL Required: Yes
      If you receive errors when using SSL, try using TLS instead.
    • Port: 993
    • Username: (use your address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    SMTP information for the outgoing mail server

    • Server name:
    • SSL Required: Yes
      If you receive errors when using SSL, try using TLS instead.
    • Port: 587
    • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    • Username: (use your address from your iCloud account)

    FrontPage 2003 Sharepoint Error Message "An error occurred accessing your FrontPage web files"

    Error Message

    In FrontPage, when you point to Security on the Tools menu and then click Permissions, or if you try to create a new subweb, you may receive the following error message:

    An error occurred accessing your FrontPage web files. Authors - if authoring against a web server, please contact the webmaster for this server's site.
     WebMasters - please see the server's system log for more details.
    In the Event Viewer on the server, the following error messages appear:
    Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions:
    (OS Error #-1073741795 Message: exception occurred at 0x00c00982)
    Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions:
    http://servername - Error #80002 Message: Unrecognized Windows exception (0xc000001d)
    Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions:
    Received empty response from Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions
    You may also receive the following error message when you try to create a new project in Microsoft Visual InterDev:
    An unexpected error occurs, accessing your web files.
    See the server's System Event log for more information.


    If you cannot rejoin the domain, you must work around this problem by removing the accounts from the permissions. This usually involves resetting the permissions for the entire site. To do that, follow these steps.

    NOTE: Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.
    1. Right-click Start and then click Explore.
    2. Locate the folder that contains your Web content, and then right-click that folder.
    3. Click Properties.
    4. Click the Security tab.
    5. Look for accounts that do not display a friendly name but instead display something like the following:
    6. Select the unresolved accounts or groups, and then click Remove.

      Usually it is best to remove all accounts but leave the SYSTEM account with Full Control and the local Administrators group with Full Control.
    7. Select the Apply to all subfolders and files check box, and then click OK.
    8. Open the Web in FrontPage and re-add the accounts that you want to use. To do this, point to Security on the Tools menu, and then click Permissions.
    9. On the Users tab, set the browse access by selecting the appropriate button at the bottom of the dialog box.
    10. Click OK.
    NOTE: If the preceding workaround does not resolve this problem, locate and delete unresolved SIDs in Users and Groups:
    1. Open Users and Groups as follows:
      • On a Microsoft Windows NT 4.0-based computer, from the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Users and Groups.
      • On a Windows 2000-based computer, from the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management. Users and Groups appears as a node under System Tools.
    2. Open each group to see the list of its members, and delete any unresolved SIDs.
