comment Sudden rise in temperature of new hard drive
I've already had one disk fail in this server, and that was new.

True, but I won't know if it's about to fail until it actually fails...

comment Sudden rise in temperature of new hard drive
It's strange because it has suddenly gone down to its normal level since. There are no papers or anything around it; it's exposed (although the airflow is not good in the room). It could be that something was keeping it spinning as you say, because when I was doing a manual backup it was hovering around the 41C mark while in constant use.

comment nice has no effect in Linux unless the same shell is used
Could somebody confirm that I'm not losing my mind, and Linux does in fact support system-wide process prioritisation? If so, how do I use it? Or if not, I'll install a better OS.

So prioritisation is meaningless unless you're talking about processes started by the same shell, by the same user etc.? That sounds bonkers.

comment Copy failing drive in order to retrieve files?
I would much prefer to make a new partition as it would be cleaner (i.e. not fragmented). I would not need a third drive actually, because the broken drive is 500GB, whereas the new drive is double that. But I have an external drive if the need arises anyway.

comment Windows 7 can't write to root of non-system drive
I removed my page file, and the problem isn't fixed. I really want to fix this issue. It seems like poor programming on Microsoft's part.

Where would you suggest moving the page file? I need it (commonly paging despite having 8GB RAM - photo editing for you). It's not going on the SSD :P
