Gmail client is nice! For someone like me, Gmail web interface addict..., this can help with some of the shortcomings vs. a normal client.
It just uses lots of resources

Have enough of them...but for me it seems that the Gmail tabs in Chrome takes even more resources.

How is it security-wise?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I think its basically Chrome with a wrap, you login into Gmail directly

Correct. It's based on Electron.
You can also use Franz or Rambox, both of which have support for many other services as well.

I used to use a program called MagicDisc to backup my CDs and DVDs in case of scratching. It doesn't seem to work in Windows 10. Any other recommendations? I was able to make an .iso file using ImgBurn, but can't figure out how to play it (it's a video).

ISO is an image, you can't paly from it, you need to extract the data.

I don't have an CDs/DVDs today, I just copy the files to my hard drive

I used to be able to Mount ISO files to a virtual drive and then play them like a regular video DVD. I tried playing the files in AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS, but they didn't work.

Even with VLC?  Windows10 has a built in image mounter, so after creating the ISO, double clicking it should make it mounted, and then VLC can play it..

Double clicking just opens the files. Maybe ImgBurn didn't get a good image?
I use http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/
So I created a new image with this program, and it doesn't seem to work either. The DVD opens up but I just hear the music (but it plays a little to fast) and don't see the actual video.

Try playing it with VLC...
It plays, but the audio is choppy and the video is very pixelated

Trying it now... it's just as bad (if not worse).

What is this program anyways?

Here's a list of the files in the .iso file:
V:\
├───VIDEO_TS
│       VIDEO_TS.IFO
│       VIDEO_TS.VOB
│       VIDEO_TS.BUP
│       VTS_01_0.IFO
│       VTS_01_0.VOB
│       VTS_01_1.VOB
│       VTS_01_2.VOB
│       VTS_01_0.BUP

└───AUDIO_TS

Dp the file sizes make sense for a video? Including the ISO file size.

In This PC, the mounted .iso is the same size as the actual DVD (1.59gb)
