    Not only does it not make sense but it turned out to be a very bad idea. When Revo failed to create a restore point, I went back...

    I've already discovered one downside since I added a disk to System Restore. Creating a restore point fails when uninstalling something with Revo. Now the restore is in an unknown state and I'll have...

    A curious copy issue

    I selected everything on one drive and pasted it to an empty drive. Windows ripped through the calculations at a speed I've never seen before. Then that green status bar appeared to complete the...

    Questions about System Restore

    I used to create restore points just for the system but I've recently included my Work drive (about 200 gig)

    1) Does the restore data get placed on C:\ drive, am I inadvertently going to fill that...

    I agree and I'm trying to look into it. But where? What could be responsible for Windows copy transferring data in kilobytes? The programs that claim to be faster must be trying to bypass something...

    I have one M2 and it's the boot drive. Booting is working well so far, the drives are all visible without needing a restart, so I think I'll leave well alone for the time being.

    I'm flabbergasted...

    So don't do anything and it doesn't matter if my M2 boot drive isn't disk 0?

    I'm proceeding with your plan.

    * Ran diags using Seatools and Dashboard - found bad blocks
    * Switched out the drive, copied the data to the new drive
    * Changed all MBR disks to CBT

    I found out about multiple copies being slower, I tried FastCopy but it made no difference. Transfer rate improved after a reboot, at least the rate is measured in MB not KB. I'm trying Teracopy now....
  11. [RESOLVED] Copying from disk to disk is insanely slow!

    I've done the following but nothing's changed.

    >If you're not using M.2 drives
    The boot drive is the only SSD.

    I'm not quite sure what you're suggesting. Do I reassign the disks in the BIOS according to something I'll find in the manual or do...

    >If you had the motherboard manual
    The manual!? It must be bad if you have to resort to the manual :)

    Yeah, and I suspect that's not all that's strange.

  16. Does anyone have a list of maintenance tasks

    We used to run defrag and regclean and all kinds of stupid utilities but now I have a SSD and regcleans don't do anything - or they take out keys you need.

    So I'm left wondering, what do you do...
