comment Why is Crashplan so slow to upload my computer's files?
Crashplan is also doing de-duplication/compression on your data, so you might not max out your outgoing bandwidth. But still, I am experiencing the same slowness-- on similiar backup loads (jpgs, ~75 gigs), my Windows Crashplan backed up much faster (pretty much overnight) while OSX Crashplan says it'll take a week.

comment Does using Smart Response Technology (Z68 chipset) require a UPS to prevent data loss?
In theory, if your system "froze", in Maximized mode, Intel's drivers should still be able to recover the data, since it's on the SSD still. However, if your SSD were to say, instantly fail, you'd lose all the pending write-thru data, forever. Does that make sense? That's why I still run maximized mode, and use Crashplan/etc. for realtime backups of my important files.

This was done with Maximized mode?

comment Making SSD & HDD work together like a hybrid
"can only cache a Windows boot drive" -- this is not true. You can accelerate any of your non-SSD disks and even RAID1/0 Intel arrays.

Have you tried swapping out the drive cable? The drive itself?

comment Backing up Windows 8 Client Hyper-V Machine(s)?
Also, there is no such thing as "Windows Backup" in Windows 8. Are you thinking of "File History" ?

comment Backing up Windows 8 Client Hyper-V Machine(s)?
@Ramhound - have you personally gotten it to work with Win8? I haven't. Debugging the code shows Windows is missing the expected VSS writer.

comment Backing up Windows 8 Client Hyper-V Machine(s)?
The "Hyper-V VSS Writer" doesn't seem to be installed on Windows 8, so I'm not sure this will work. Windows 8 does have "Windows 7 File Recovery" (which lets you do a system image)-- but I'm not sure if that'll work with Hyper-V. Guess it's worth a shot.
