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?

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 :)
