comment Can I shrink an NTFS partition running Windows 7 from the 'left' / 'start' side?
It is capable of doing it. And you are confusing Operating Systems with applications. Neither Linux nor Windows can do anything but host application like GParted or EaseUS. In this case EaseUS is much better because it solves all the boot sector problems that GParted can't.

I am gonna buy an OCZ Vertex 450 soon for gaming - Load times are blasted away. No prob. Sorry for rough start.

You will notice a massive difference on SSD SATA and then PCIe will blow you away. The largest project we have to compile is Kentico. Over an hour... I wonder how much faster that would be on a setup like yours (but we don't need to compile every day cause it uses uncompiled source - runtime compiling for pages)

Yea- We don't really know what he needs it for. A RAM Drive is great for large Photoshop Files.. compiling software in .NET is mostly read with CPU and some small out files (unless its a gigantic project)

It is realistic but as you already know it is difficult in some cases. Keep It Simple - ANd use a good SATA Drive as your OS and if you r REALLY need that 1GB/s then use a PCIe drive as a scratch drive or application container.

comment Plugin to speed up embedded videos?
Umm. You can view the source of the video tag, copy it and paste it into VLC? But you can't speed something up if you have not go the data to do it. Weird question? (Ale co ty chcesz zrobic tak naprwade?)

What are you doing that get the HDD to 100% usage? I mean you said the HDD is a bottleneck. During what activity is this happening?

How- What can you be possibly doing that you are getting bottleneck problems with a modern hard drive?

So what is the question? We cant give you advice on hardware shopping here! And seconds your HDD should not be doing 100% you have some serious issues there. Ask a proper localised question not some essay.

Why use LINUX to do Windows operations. It really annoys me when people suggest to use Linux software to Windows users. You don't see me going on Linux forums and telling a-patch-me users to use IIS 8. You get a -1

comment How to recover data from damaged hard drive?
@Iserni - You are wrong. Two disks cannot be absolutely identical- How can 2 things be the same 1 thing! Each PCB builds its own "area mapping" on the pcb eprom - even the same PCB if it factory reset will rebuild the "area mapping" - completely different than first time. It is dynamic and nothing to do with PCB- It is the firmware. Then these dynamic areas are stored in the service area (a hidden part of the hard drive to store data for the PCB) - PCB Swap used to work 100% on drives smaller than 80GB. To swap PCB today you need to swap eprom too!(not easy)

PS -1 million for adviaizng to open the hard drive! And - 1 million for suggestion to move the platters. No human in the world can realign the platters if moved separately. Not even a machine can do it. Moving platters - professionals can do it but it costs about 50,000USD because its more complicated than brain surgery.

comment How to recover data from damaged hard drive?
Just trying to replace the PCB without actually knowing if it is the PCB is very very very bad! Sometimes putting an identical PCB will wipe the Service Area data and all the data will be lost . forever and ever. You should play the lottery cause you are one lucky sun of a gun that you had luck with that. Anyway. Bad advice! -1

Never ever run chkdsk on a drive that has symptoms of HDD crash. chkdsk cannot repair physical repair. Most modern file system cope very well with bad sectors and chkdsk mostly tries to fix errors relating to OS rather than HDD. SO its useless here.
