comment Waking up my computer every minute
Well, as it so happened; an old netbook I had which had a broken screen has a "feature" that if I press and hold the power button the computer turns on, and doesn't turn off! (if i keep the power button pressed). And then, if the power is removed, and then reconnected, it turns on again! Hooray. So I shall be hotwiring that to "ON" all the time and my solution is found.

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.

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
