Hmm Alan as a matter of personal choice I never use the miracle fix programs mate they cause more problems than they are worth. It might be worth finding out from the others what their thoughts on that software.

Now the shot of your disk management looks beyond me mate how did all those partitions come about?? It doe s look like a right pickle, and just what is on the active partitions??

There is only one active partition, system Reserved, it is 100 MB at the start of Disk 2, the SSD, used for booting Win 7.
Disk 1 has System Reserved, NOT active, part of Windows 7 before I had an SSD.

My WDC HDD had one dozen partitions before Windows trashed its GPT status,
and only the first two chunks correspond to original reality when I first restored a Macrium image of Disc 1 Windows 7 onto Disc 0 to satisfy myself that my Boot Recovery CD had adequate drivers for writing to my hardware - I did not want to wipe out my Disc 1 working installation with a recovery process that I feared could be as unreliable as Acronis.

The other three chunks on Disk 0 are entirely Windows stupidity that it is using a MBR partition table and Extended partition table that never existed when the drive was good. Windows has created a work of fiction.

It is worthy of note that my 930 GB Disk 1 started with 2 partitions without drive letters that were my 25 GB install of Windows before I had an SSD,
and Partitions D:\ and H:\ which totalled 15 GB.
After Disk 0 was trashed I created many more partitions for recovery of data from what Lazesoft recognised as one dozen GPT partitions

I am fully with you
"that as a matter of personal choice I never use the miracle fix programs that cause more problems than they are worth".
UNFORTUNATELY most of the applications that I am familiar with will only run under the horrendous "miracle fix program" that is Windows.
There are many other people that prefer Linux.
So far as I am concerned the rot set in when IBM chose that the IBM PC would use DOS instead of the superior CPM.

If however you consider Lazesoft to be an untrustworthy "Miracle Fix Program" then,
with all due respect you could not be more wrong.
I do not use Lazesoft as my GOTO "Miracle Fix Program" for each and every disaster,
and as something to use in place of a reliable, dependable, backup procedure.
But I find it priceless when the backup procedure falters.

I use Macrium Reflect to create and validate image backup files on the secondary HDD (Disk 0),
and I subsequently connect to an external eSATA HDD and use Teracopy to copy those files from Disk 0,
and to perform hash checksum validation of copying to ensure integrity.
I once suffered 50% corrupted "duplicates" when using Windows Explorer copy to an USB2 external.
My external drive is ONLY connected when I need it,
so as to protect its integrity against a Power Surge that destroys the computer;
or yet another Windows disaster that ruins everything it can touch.

NB so far as the thoughts of other people are concerned, there are quite a few other people that are more than satisfied with Lazesoft,
and I only tried it because someone on the GAOTD site recommended this a superior alternative to the Data Recovery software that was on offer that day.

Alan

Lol, you can find earlier W7 reboot times here.

Using UEFI (no CSM) BIOS can post in less than 2 seconds, add to that a MainPathBootTime of ~3.2 seconds and boot times can be fairly quick.

This thread is for bragging about fast restart times, not problem solving.

No worries Alan I don't doubt Lazesoft is good I was sorta generalising really and not targetting Lazesoft. I was referring more to heaps of those reg cleaners and performance enhancing crapware that a lot of folk use and wreck the machine with they are usually free and the one you use I think you said you paid for which if right gives you some comeback.
If you want a really good partitioning tool and I use it a lot for just that and testing drives etc etc is Partition Wizard free and is used a lot by others in here. Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.


Sorry Gary I didn't mean to take over and should have referred Alan to make another thread
