Can any file be recovered if a new USB fully encrypted first then formatted and copied and deleted without encryption?

I read some advices that, FDE for new USB before using it against to recover deleted data. It’s clear. Assume that I fully encrypt a new USB before copying any file, then format it and then copy personal data without using encryption. In this case, any deleted file can be recovered if it’s deleted normal way or it’s securely erased?

Any assistance would be much appreciated!


Ext4 formatted flash drives lose files when the drive is removed from the PC on 19.04

I’m using PopOS 19.04, although the issue was also present on vanilla Ubuntu 19.04 and caused me to lose some important files.

Whenever I use a flash drive for Linux, format it as ext4, add files, and then remove the drive from the USB port, all of the files disappear. The only way that I have recently found to make them not disappear is to right click and hit “remove safely”. I can do this every time if I have to but I don’t have to do it for Windows, what is different? Is it just a bug?

How to submit multi-checkbox items in a formatted string to SharePoint lookup column

I’m new to InfoPath and SharePoint and i also use the trial version of qRules, i have 2 sharepoint lists, with one (let’s call it “list1”) having a lookup column to the second (“list2”), and this column permit multi-items selection. when i am using the default form i can add an item to “list1” with all the selected items in the lookup column separated with a semicolon. but when want to use a custom form, and a multi-checkbox, and i don’t know how the selected items ID’s must be submitted to the SharePoint list (i tried separating the items ID’s with : ‘,’ , ‘;’ , ‘.’ ; ‘ ‘ …).

I want the selected items to be displayed like this in the lookup column : enter image description here

Thank’s for your help.

I just formatted a USB with Xubuntu, can’t boot from it in BIOs, and when I plug it in it doesn’t show up at all

It did show up in the bios screen previously when I formatted it with rufus, but it didn’t go to the installation screen, it went to a GRUB command line, and when I tried some commands I found on here for similar GRUB screens issues, like root (hd1), it said ‘root is not recognized as a command’. SO I redid it with unetbootin, I restarted the laptop, opened bios and nothing. Only option is my SSD with windows on it.

Back in windows, when I plug it in, it doesn’t show up in file explorer, though it does show up in Devices and printers screen as a USB mass storage device.

I’m running windows 10 pro from an installation media, my laptop model number is K46CA. Not sure what other info you need to help me but glad to give more.

Formatted column button doesn’t start the flow

I am having an issue, that none of the members of my organization can call a flow from a formatted column button in a Sharepoint list.

Below is the script used to create this button:

Below is a screenshot of how this button is on my list, and works pretty fine for my user account.

enter image description here

When a team member clicks on the same button (using his account), the flow window comes up, but doesn’t show anything:

enter image description here

This is how I have granted permission to this team member runs this flow. Initially I have added him as a Run only member, also it didn’t work. Then I changed to Owner member, even though the issue is still there:

Does anyone have any light of what could be the issue?

Batch retrieve formatted address along with geometry (lat/long) and output to csv

I have a csv file with 3 fields, two of which are of my interest, Merchant_Name and City.
My goal was to output multiple csv files each with 6 fields, Merchant_Name, City, name, formatted_address, latitude, longitude.

For example, if one entry of the csv is Starbucks, Chicago, I want the output csv to contain all the information in the 6 fields (as mentioned above) like so-
Starbucks, Chicago, Starbucks, "200 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60604, USA", 41.8164613, -87.8127855,
Starbucks, Chicago, Starbucks, "8 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60602, USA", 41.8164613, -87.8127855
and so on for the rest of the results.

For this, I used Text Search request of Google Maps Places API. Here is what I wrote.

import pandas as pd # import googlemaps import requests # import csv # import pprint as pp from time import sleep import random   def search_output(search):     if len(data['results']) == 0:         print('No results found for {}.'.format(search))      else:          # Create csv file         filename = search + '.csv'         f = open(filename, "w")          size_of_json = len(data['results'])          # Get next page token         # if size_of_json = 20:             # next_page = data['next_page_token']          for i in range(size_of_json):             name = data['results'][i]['name']             address = data['results'][i]['formatted_address']             latitude = data['results'][i]['geometry']['location']['lat']             longitude = data['results'][i]['geometry']['location']['lng']              f.write(name.replace(',', '') + ',' + address.replace(',', '') + ',' + str(latitude) + ',' + str(longitude) + '\n')          f.close()          print('File successfully saved for "{}".'.format(search))          sleep(random.randint(120, 150))   API_KEY = 'your_key_here'  PLACES_URL = ''   # Make dataframe df = pd.read_csv('merchant.csv', usecols=[0, 1])  # Construct search query search_query = df['Merchant_Name'].astype(str) + ' ' + df['City'] search_query = search_query.str.replace(' ', '+')  random.seed()  for search in search_query:     search_req = 'query={}&key={}'.format(search, API_KEY)     request = PLACES_URL + search_req      # Place request and store data in 'data'     result = requests.get(request)     data = result.json()      status = data['status']      if status == 'OK':         search_output(search)     elif status == 'ZERO_RESULTS':         print('Zero results for "{}". Moving on..'.format(search))         sleep(random.randint(120, 150))     elif status == 'OVER_QUERY_LIMIT':         print('Hit query limit! Try after a while. Could not complete "{}".'.format(search))         break     else:         print(status)         print('^ Status not okay, try again. Failed to complete "{}".'.format(search))         break 

I want to implement next page token but cannot think of a way which woudn’t make it all a mess. Another thing I wish to improve is my csv writing block. And dealing with redundancy.
I further plan to concatenate all the csv files into one(but still keeping the original separate files).

Please note that I’m new to programming, in fact this is actually one of my first programs to achieve something. So please elaborate a bit more when need be. Thanks!

Google Sheets | Dynamic Master sheet that grabs red formatted cells from another sheet

Title may be a little too ambiguous but I’ll try give a run down as best I can;

I have a Google sheet with multiple “Sheets” or Tabs (as I’d like to call them) within it.

The Main tab is blank and the rest have various cells with different dates on them. The dates that are close turn their respective cells Red. I have existing conditional formatting to do this.

What I want to achieve is the main tab basically checks all the other tabs for any red cells and pops them into the main sheet in a vertical column.

Here’s an example:

“Second tab”

  • (A1) Date 1 (green)

  • (A2) Date 2 (red)

  • (A3) Date 3 (red)

  • (A4) Date 4 (Green)

“Main tab”

  • (A1) Date 2 (red)

  • (A2) Date 3 (red)

As you can see, “Main tab” ignores any green cells from “Second tab” and only grabs the red ones. In my case though, there are many more tabs, not just 1.

I have a feeling “=IMPORTRANGE” may help in this scenario? Maybe.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

SD card not appearing when formatted as internal

I’m a user of the Realme C2(android P). I’ve just formatted my SD card as the internal storage through Powershell since my manufacturer doesn’t allow me to do it in the settings. It don’t think it worked as now i do not see the SD card in the storage section. It seems to have completely disappeared.These are the commands that I used from this link:

adb shell sm list-disk adb shell sm list-volumes all adb shell sm set-force-adoptable true adb shell sm partition disk:179,64 private adb shell sm set-force-adoptable false adb shell sm list-volumes all 

I really have no idea if they even worked as I was told that the 4th command would take some time but, it didn’t. I’ll be more than happy to post screenshots or anything that is required for you to understand the problem. So if there is anything you can do to help me, please do so. This is my last resort.


enter image description here

This is what happened in the Powershell window:

PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb devices List of devices attached EUS4***ZPBTWAM79 device PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm list-disks disk:1*9:1*8 PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm list-volumes all private mounted null public:1*9:1*0 mounted 01*7-1*13 emulated mounted null  PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm set-force-adoptable true PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm partition disk:1*9,1*8 private PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm partition disk:1*9:1*8 private PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm set-force-adoptable false PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> .\adb shell sm list-volumes all emulated:1*9,1*0 unmounted null private:1*9,1*0 mounted c5ee2ab2-9**7-468e-8**6-c700ba9**283 private mounted null emulated mounted null PS C:\Users\Sa**vik\Downloads\platform-tools> 

I’d put in * to keep it anonymous

Just downloaded an app called freespace. It is supposed to show me how much of everything is left. This is what it had to say about my phone

I’m pretty sure my phone is confusing the sd card to be internal storage.I can say this because the used is the same under both of them.I can also be sure the app isn’t displaying the same thing twice as the total and available spaces for both of them are different.
