comment Windows 7 install issues with 2x3TB in RAID1
So It sounds like what you're saying is that the drives are partitioned with MBR by default? Win7 setup with bare disks is what led to this. I'm looking into how to use diskpart to achieve the desired partitioning.. Regarding AHCI mode vs. RAID mode: I have the Intel controllers set to RAID mode and the Marvel controller set to AHCI. I've since unplugged the SSD to remove it from the equation.

comment Windows 7 install issues with 2x3TB in RAID1
so since I've updated the Asus P8Z68-V/Pro Gen3 mobo to the latest firmware, this should include the updated driver for the Intel Z68 chipset's native RAID1 support? I've updated the firmware but while the BIOS sees it correctly, windows does not. It seems I need to partition the drives using GPT -- looking into whether that would solve the problem. Was curious as to whether additional drivers at Win7 install startup would have solved it. Can't find any sort of download for this scenario..

comment Windows 7 install issues with 2x3TB in RAID1
Hi Andrew, while you're wrong about my approach (I plan on installing Win7 to the RAID1 array and accelerating that using Intel RST and 64 GB partition on the SSD) -- loading the correct drivers for the controllers seems to be the correct way to go. I guess I have to find the mass-storage drivers first. Any pointers on this would be very helpful. Thanks!

Hi Hennes -- is there a way to partition with GPT from within a UEFI bios? I want Windows to be installed on the 3TB RAID1 (planning to use the SSD as an accelerator for the RAID1 pair). Sounds like if I can get them properly formatted & partitioned using GPT I'd be ok?

comment Outlook 2010 — How to remove categories with Quick Step
Hi Dave, FYI, QuickSteps are a separate feature than rules and alerts. But I appreciate the attempt at help anyway!

comment Outlook 2010 — How to remove categories with Quick Step
Hi Dave, I think an example would help: I have e-mails in my inbox. The "Next Action" QuickStep marks it with the category of "S/Next Action" and moves it to my archive. Now, if I want to make that a "waiting on status", my Quick Step for "Waiting On" removes all categories (and thus the "Next Action") and then applies "Waiting On". But if I use an unrelated category (e.g. "Project A", "Announcements", those get lost too. So I'm looking to set 5 actions within the quick step so it only removes my status categories before re-applying the new status.

comment How to Synchronize Dropbox PDFs to Kindle DX?
These are both great options. Thank you, Henry! One question I have is what to do about all the books that are already in this folder. Will any of these allow me to apply the rules I create to existing items? I can't seem to find an answer on that. I have ~100 that I'd like to sync without re-adding as they're already synced elsewhere..
