**fix** GPT Header corruption

I had the problem with my new mainboard the Asus Rog Strix B-360F that as soon as I connected an external hard drive the PC no longer booted normally but when I started the message “GPT Header corruption has been detected, please check SATA mode setting in BIOS Setup “

Since I permanently connected my external hard drives, the constant F1 and going into the boot menu was rather annoying.

After long searching i have found the solution:

  1. Open the BIOS menu with F2 or DEL
  2. Select the “Boot” section
  3. Then click on “Boot Configuration”
  4. Then select the “Boot Sector / MBR / GPT) Recovery Policy” and select “Auto Recovery”
  5. Select the “Exit” section
  6. “Save Changes & Reset”
  7. Now the computer starts with an external hard drive connected and without an error message.

StorjNode (StorageNode)

A few weeks ago I came across the Storj project and quickly became very interested.

You can virtually rent out your free space here.

Since I have several Pi’s and about 12 TB of empty memory, the project came in very handy for me. Unfortunately it was not possible for me to register for a key there, even for weeks and with different email addresses.

I then kindly received a token from a user in a forum that I could use for myself.

My first node went online today. The setup was amazingly simple, to warm up I started with my almost 500GB SSD, should it get full I’ll switch to my 4TB HDD. Since storage space is not rewarded so much, I want to wait and see.

The node has now generated 1GB of traffic in the last 6 hours. I think it works like in other networks that a certain lifetime has to be proven before the node is really integrated into the network.

I’m looking forward to it
