    Can't see it in disk management to be able to format, just device manager where it shows a resource error and thunderbolt control center.

    All disk management shows is the nvme and a couple of tiny partitions of it : /

    Toying with disabling the 3090 to confirm issue but need to get video out of the motherboard to the monitor first. I've got DP/HDMI ports on it but none seem to want to register out of the box so obviously something I need to set somewhere (thinking bios but have too much work today/tomorrow to look).

    Thanks - Devon these days.

    They've got a couple of similar things down here but wasn't eligible for one and the other required lots of personal spending info which I wasn't that interested in giving.

    Finally formatted my RAID to exfat from mac os journalled after making a million backups for the past week.

    Now it shows up on TB3 in windows but only in the Thunderbolt Control Centre - not in explorer. In Device Manager there's an alert icon and in Properties it tells me:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=This+dev­ice+cannot+find+enough+free+resources+th­at+it+can+use.+(Code+12)+If+you+want+to+­use+this+device%2C+you+will+need+to+disa­ble+one+of+the+other+devices+on+this+sys­tem.+You+need+to+restart+your+computer+b­efore+the+changes+you+made+to+this+devic­e+will+take+effect

    Which seems like a conflict between it and the GPU? Which would be a big suck.

    Any more for any more?

    I'd consider getting an SSD RAID as an upgrade but connected how ? Don't wildly want to ditch my B550 after all this but would consider an X570 and a separate thunderbolt 3 card if that would work and let me keep the current RAID (as I don't envisage getting paid 14 grand by my clients any time soon).

    SEISS seems to be available to apply for from April for Feb-Apr period? So back to waiting for clients to pay me from last November basically.

    You're both clowns and wrong. It's a buggy mess. (That I've sunk 400 hours into).

    Obvs don't have time to be gaming right now but that hasn't stopped me and a big shout out for kingdom come: deliverance being the worst experience ever.

    I played it in the past on bootcamp and maybe the poor performance masked the buggy reality.

    Playing it now has tempted me to rage uninstall.

    Terrible save system that gets you drunk when you use it - and if you use it too much you develop alcoholism (developers: 'oh we want it to be real and not reliant on saving all the time' fuck off, just make it playable). Awful autosave points so if you complete a load of quests it doesn't autosave until you start a new major questline. Easy to die - early game you'll die most fights and end up just training mobs. Late game and you have situations like just now: I've spent two hours riding around the map, earned loads of late game armour to sell to fund my new village etc etc, managed to complete a really buggy quest where you have to carry a body through the woods at night without a light (because you can't hold a torch when carrying a body nor can you put a body on your horse because reasons - carrying the body reduces movement speed to 15% and bushes/sticks grass are physical obstacles that block you, but you still make the walking sounds/animation and because it's so dark you can't tell you're just walking on the spot) - finally handed in, ready to bank my money and make a manual save, climbed off horse in town outside trader, fell to my death.

    All this means you can play for hours and do lots of grindy riding from place to place finding treasure / winning battles and all progress vanishes in a flash. All I want is for Pribyslavitz to be profitable under my tenure as Bailiff.
