Exchange Admin Center language

Depending on your computer language settings, Exchange Admin Center can take those and open in a language you actually don't want to use.
You'll Google that this can be changed if administrator/ admin user has mailbox by openening OWA settings and changing Regional parameters.

But usually Admin user does not have mailbox or you don't want her/him to have it. You will search again and find that you can add mkt=en-US (as an example) to the URL of the Exchange Admin Center (https://yourexchangehostname/ecp?ExchClientVer=15&mkt=en-US)

Third option you have is opening Internet Explorer settings (I am using Windows 2016)


Click languagesClick Set Language Preferences

Add language you want to use by clicking Add language
Use Move up or Move Down options to put desired language on topClose Internet ExplorerOpen it again and login again to Exchange Admin Center

MacBook Time Machine backup to WD My Book Live "Time Machine completed a verification of your backups on 'WDx'. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you."

My setup for MacBook Air backup was Time Machine backing up to WD My Book Live 3T hard disk. Every month or so, I got an error stating "Time Machine completed a verification of your backups on 'WDx'. To improve reliability, Time Machine must create a new backup for you."

90 GB of data to backup? Again?! I tried everything, from changing the name of the computer (because ' in name can make some problems), removing all the security (absolutely not advisable ;) ) just to check things out and... nothing. Whatever I did the error kept coming out.

The solution:

Sell WD My Book Live and buy yourself a Synology NAS. It costs more but the difference is soooooo big you will not regret it. No more monthly full backups, no more network lags and you get additional apps you can use.

And this is not a commercial :D

UPDATE: After 3 months of backup to Synology NAS no failures, no verifications,... works like a charm.
