        Those unusual USB cables you mentioned in your article are a godsend to an RVer who uses a Dish Tailgater TV Portable antenna. The Tailgater is powered by a Wally that has 2 USB 1.0 or 2.0 connecters in it to power a seperate disk drive that must be a 1 TB if I remember correctly. That means you need another 110 volt outlet to power the hard drive. Most RV’s only have duplex outlets (room for two plugs) that are already being used by the TV and DVD player. I found that using a 1 TB SSD in an old enclosure with one of the 2 plug cables worked great. Just plug in both of the plugs into the two plugs in the back of the Wally and it will work, no additional 110 volt outlet needed. Furthermore, the SSD is not affected by all the bouncing around that regular hard drive is subject to as you move from place to place in you RV.

        In 3 minutes I can restore a drive image of my OS partition and have Windows in a known good, fully functional state.  I much prefer regular drive imaging of my Hardened Windows.

        Create a fresh drive image before making system changes/Windows updates, in case you need to start over!
