comment Hard disk failure is imminent
@Gargee This is silly. In a professional environment a SATA hard drive is so cheap that it is essentially free. Why didn't you replace it yesterday? There is nothing to be gained by extending the life of such an inexpensive device.

comment How can I use my small SSD as a cache for a larger hard disk?
@Supercilious This is where you're losing me. Slightly greater longevity? The longevity of SLC and eMLC flash is orders of magnitude greater, not slightly greater.

@Supercilious Why not just use an SLC or eMLC SSD? That must be more efficient (and certainly more dependable) than frequent replacement of unreliable MLC flash.

comment How to use multiple localhosts
You mention that you are using both IIS and Apache (the A in XAMPP). Are they listening on two different ports, or is only one of the two actually working? XAMPP is designed to be a self-contained Apache/MySQL/PHP stack for development/experimentation purposes and I have never heard of anyone integrating it with IIS.

Oh dear, you're right. The question indicates use of both IIS and Apache... but listening on which ports? Hmm.
