Does this mean you don't use any security programs such as a real-time Anti-Virus program ?
If that's the case, you might want to start scanning for malware/viruses.
You could start with Windows Defender Offline:

I know it`s not much but did you delete your windows.old folder yet ?

Since you have upgraded to 10, you can now do a clean install of 10 and it will activate, I would do that.

If you do a new install, please unplug your data drive.

What is this fascination with Raid ?????

It`s more of a rhetorical question, because there is no need for it with an ssd,, what are you gaining ?

Especially with this.

I guess I need to elaborate my 'to cut a story short'. I installed Windows 7 again on another SSD, upgraded that to Windows 10, then reformatted the OCZ, then installed Windows 10 onto that, then upgraded to 1511.

so now you have 1 OCZ with windows 10 installed on that, and your 2 Raptors in Raid, do I have that correct ?

Let`s see if Partition Wizard shows the same thing windows shows.

The X2 in the descrip of the ssd threw me off, but I see it`s just part of it`s name

Here is one of my tuts that shows you how to produce and apply a live Linux USB stick. It was made for a slightly different purpose but could be helpful in your case.
