Xiaomi (Redmi 3) doesn’t connect to PC via USB

I want to use my old Redmi 3 phone as a camera for my PC. The most stable connection is via USB not by WiFi. I expected to plug into USB, select the right mode on phone and… Yes the journey just began… My PC didn’t see at all Xiaomi. Redmi was charged but nothing more.

What I try? Reinstall system on Xiaomi, different apps which should give access to USB settings mode on Redmi, but nothing works. Then I started looking from the other side – is it something wrong maybe in my Windows installation?

How to resize root partition without losing data

I signed up for a promotion with my VPS vendor for a one-time fee for a permanent increase in available space. The change was made on the provider’s side – now I had to make changes on my side.
Of course the question arose how to do it, so as not to reinstall the system and not to lose data. And to keep potential VPS downtime as low as possible.
So how did I do it?
As a reminder: my system is Debian 9, ALWAYS do backup and you do it on your own responsibility.

SSD freezing Windows 7 problem and fix

Recently I replaced the hard drive to SSD in my laptop Dell XPS 1647 . My choice was  Plextor M 5P Pro 128GB. As the magazine moved the existing drive in place of the optical drive – but that’s another story .
