comment Corrupt Harddrive opens but can't get anything off of it - btrfs
We will probably help you, but if you want an answer other then a book on data recovery recommendation, you should first split your question into specific problems that you encounter. Like: how can I open a lid and attach a hardrive on the XXX notebook? Or: How to boot an XXX notebook so I can run a Ubuntu Live CD? How can I check, if my hardrive has any bad sectors? How to tell, which partition scheme (GPT/MBR) my hard drive was using? What is the recommended way to reconstruct an MBR partition table?... But please, ask a question here only AFTER you've checked Google.

comment WD Black² Dual Drive motor always stops and starts
I agree. I just bought one, activated in under Windows7, and it runs just fine on Ubuntu with bcache. The performance is great, much faster then hybrid SSHD Seagate Momentum.

comment How to install Ubuntu with both disk encryption AND SSD caching
I don't see why LUKS would exclude bcache... They don't depend on each other and one can happily sit on top of the other.

comment How to install Ubuntu with both disk encryption AND SSD caching
You should understand, that the /boot partition most certainly will have to be unencrypted. bcache was incompatible with grub on Ubuntu 14.04 and I believe it still is.

comment How to use ubuntu as a bluetooth headset to the mobile phone?
None. For the moment I just accepted the fact, that Ubuntu ain't a microphone... ;-) I hope someday someone finds a way how to do it.

There is also a ~/.steam directory to remove. It contains EULA and some symlinks. Delete that too.
