Windoze Defender finds nothing, Avast finds nothing. Sadly, I cannot virus-scan the TV recordings because scanning 3TB is not feasible. The SSD system drive is fine though.

I'm updating Windoze Defender and Avast and i'll do a fullscan overnight. I'll report back tomorrow.

TV server SSD is Corsair P128 and it's 4years oldish. Other computer SSD is Samsung 830 and about a year old. Acronis reports the TV server SSD is ok. Samsung 830 I can't check as that laptop seems to have separate hardware issues. Yes. Avast is common. its logs say nothing.

Ramhound: This isn't a GPT formatted SSD, it's also a SATA2 motherboard and this computer doesnt have fastboot and it's win7. It's also a low voltage core2 duo. So .... 40sec is fast on this machine. I'll run an AV check, though I don't think there are viruses. I'll check out TCPview, thanks

Good idea David. I'll give that a go next time I cold-boot. Might be a few days. I'm currently sleeping my laptop away. Which method do you suggest to check for network traffic? I was going to user Resource Monitor.
