comment Is bigger capacity ram faster then smaller capacity ram for same clock and CL?
I had heard that since you cram more information on the platter, by packing them closer to each other, same as bluerays, you get speed boosts, because if you turn at the same rate, you are actually going over way more data, thus reading more of it. Maybe I'm wrong about hard-drives, and what I heard was false, but my question remains open for RAM.

comment Using Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID-1 in “on request” update mode is a viable backup solution?
I understand how the best situation would be to have raid for fault tolerance, and have the raid backed up on an external drive. What I'm not sure I understand is why raid in a "per request" mode is not a backup. The old adage "raid is not a backup" used to make sense to me, until I found this "on request" mode. Now wouldn't that just be like having the raid driver copy the files, instead of having a backup software do it?

comment Using Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID-1 in “on request” update mode is a viable backup solution?
My setup is that my OS is installed on a small SSD. My user files are backed up on my raid 1 array of hard drives. Since my SSD is a mere fraction of the size of my array, I also use the array to store large files, like Movies, Music, archived documents, pictures. What I want is that this hard-drive be also backed up onto my second identical HDD. I would also like this to be seamless, so that if one drives fails, I can just put the other in its place until I replace the broken one. That is why I thought a raid would work, not sure what are the disadvantages if I run it in "on request" mode.

That is a good point, that raid 1 can not allow for revisions of the backed up data. I also guess using raid 1 for backing up takes a lot more space, since it copies the entire drive every time. While a normal backup would only copy the files that need to be backed up, and it can allow for fancy features like encryption and compression.

Is there a way to configure windows to accept 2 different hardware configurations? Or a way for the VM to simulate your exact hardware?

Looking around about Deep Freeze led me to this really great software: Shadow Defender. It's similar to deep freeze, but has more features and is way cheaper. Highly recommended.
