Re: Slow web browser

I think its a model RPI1B (c)2012 if that is so, then I also have one... used as a Kodi Media Player as a web browser unit .... you can... but its very very slow.... thus not really recommended.... even if you max out the overclock settings.... better get a new RPi for that, at least RPi3B+, better ...

Re: Wasted space?

as an "experiment" (do make backups first though), try deleting the files you "dont like" and reboot the RPi

Re: First dabble in RPi. Am I going in over my head?

Well since you've built PCs over the years.... start by using your new RPi4B as a desktop pc and explore its uses from there. For electronics projects with RPi, specially in the breadboard stage... I usually start off using an older (and more robust) RPi1B+, then port it to the latest model afterwar...

Re: USB stick mounting issue

seems like the FAT(16?, 32?) formatted USB stick is mounted as root...
so user pi cannot access it.

you might want to try changing ownership using chmod

Re: Samba on Raspi copy large files gives error 0x8007003B solution so far: don't use ExFAT or FAT32

my upgraded NAS servers are now using EXT4 (main {Rock64-1G} and mirror {RPi2B} )....

so mirroring time is less than before (not timed though, but just seemed faster than before) ;)
sometimes mirroring a single file with more than 8GB size....and no errors.
