comment Prevent Excel from changing formula of last row of table when adding a new row
It is a real table as in an Excel table. I tried using OFFSET and it didn't work.

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...

Simple and totally ineffective :)

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

comment Windows 7 can't write to root of non-system drive
No, but the error is due to UAC, not a filesystem error. UAC is preventing me from writing to the root of a drive, because it thinks it's the system drive for some reason. Do you think it's actually worth doing a disk check?

comment Windows 7 can't write to root of non-system drive
There are no deny rules in place, and I am trying to write to the root by right clicking and hitting "new bitmap image". Or, by trying to get Photoshop to use F: as its scratch disk.

It just says "Healthy (Page File)" under the status thing.

NTFS. The reason I want to be able to write to the root is so that I can store my Photoshop scratch file there.

That seems to just be a movement detector. I want something that will take a picture every X seconds, and save it somewhere.

comment Increase speeds with an unmanaged GBE switch?
@Rain just noticed your question. It's a DGND3300 ADSL modem and router combined. However, as you can see from the edit on the OP, I've narrowed down the problem to a device setting. I now get speeds of about 12MB/s [96Mb/s] on contiguous files, which is damn near the theoretical maximum. Gigabit can wait for now :)

comment Increase speeds with an unmanaged GBE switch?
Yes, both PCs have gigabit NICs. The main point though was that the switch is unmanaged. I was worried you would need a managed switch in order to do this.

comment Can a crossover cable be used as a patch cable?
Well, I tried it and hey presto, it works (at least with the GBE PC).

Right, so it'll work even if the crossover cable is plugged into a wall socket, which attaches to a patch cable connected to the router? And it won't fry anything? Cheers :)
