comment Why does my PC slow down to a crawl when VMware and ntoskrnl.exe is writing to a data drive?
Well, I already know what, why and how is using my hard disk. I just don't understand why my system gets so slow while the disk is being used, considering that Windows and all the applications are located on another, much faster SSD drive and the PC has plenty of free RAM. But thanks for the link, I'll see if that xperf provides some more clues to find out what's going on.

I've had this issue even before I migrated my system to SSD. Still, I don't see why my PC performance is affected so badly while I'm writing to the other drive (Seagate ST31000528AS), which is not the one with Windows and applications.

comment Sync Google Drive when not logged in
I tried this on Windows 8, but no luck - when I run the scheduled task, googledrivesync.exe flashes for a moment and quits without syncing the folder. No errors in logs and the task itself still has Running status.

comment Why unrelated files get corrupted after a blue screen of death caused by audio drivers?
Your answer explains experience my friend had when he just migrated to Windows XP. He had an older system drive - FAT32 formatted and a new data drive - NTFS formatted. One day power went off for a moment. Later when the PC booted, FAT32 system was intact, no errors on scandisk. NTFS was corrupted. We were shocked that the new NTFS system could not survive the power outage.

comment Broken dropdowns in SQL Server Configuration Manager on Windows 8.1
I think in my case the problem is not related to DPI because I'm running it on a virtual machine with 1366x768 resolution and DPI setting is on 100%.

Now I managed to select values blindly using arrow keys and enter. But it feels so awkward to be unable to see what I'm selecting...

comment Broken dropdowns in SQL Server Configuration Manager on Windows 8.1
Oh, thanks for the hint. I imagined that Management Console will show only it's own version number but there is it: SQL Server Configuration Manager, Microsoft Corporation, Version: 2011.0110.2100.060

comment Broken dropdowns in SQL Server Configuration Manager on Windows 8.1
Currently resolution is 1366x768 and I haven't changed any other settings, I left them as they were "out of the box" but I'm not sure what VMWare video drivers did to the system. I asked some of my work colleagues and two of them reported the same problem. In one case it's on Windows 7 64 bit, but this person says that some months ago he didn't have the issue. Maybe some Windows or SQL Server update broke it....

I'm not sure how to find the version of the configuration manager. It was installed with MS SQL Server 2012 with SP1 (full server version number is 11.0.3128.0).
