comment If I partition a drive connected via eSata will it show different partitions when connected via USB?
Good tip @BrechtMachiels - if someone else has the option to upgrade firmware that may solve this issue (which should be less common as newer enclosures and adapters will support it by default).

comment Remove embedded subtitles from an .mkv file?
I have found the output files from MkvToolNix (mkvmerge) to be unusable by some players & converter (ArcSoft VideoConverter in particular - I was trying to strip the subtitles prior to converting them for viewing on my iPhone).

My old 2TB drive was older, so it seems very plausible it was truly 512.

wmic DISK... shows 512 either way. Looks like this is WD's "512 emulation" at play?

Any idea what alternate sector sizes to look at. That is one step beyond my hardware knowledge.

Sounds like a plausible theory. I think it is this: vantecusa.com/en/product/view_detail/212 (can't be 100% sure of the model since the case doesn't show the model number). Current HDD is a Western Digital Green 2.5 TB - it was previously a WD Green 2 TB which was working fine in this same enclosure connected to the same router.

comment GMail, IMap and Outlook: Speeding it up?
In the labnol article, also notice the "work offline" - I found that made a big difference. Set the send/receive to something quick (< 5 min) but then all your actions happen locally and quickly.

Very Late Update: I found a reliable fix: a new laptop seems to work just dandy and has no troubles that the previous one did. Sadly, my previous error I have no seen in someone else's machine on occasion and I don't have a good suggestion for them.

I will definitely check all firewalls. Haven't used Wireshark - thanks for the +1, I'll check it out.

@Daniel I also tried sniffing the requests with Fiddler and everything looked solid.
