Hi. Thanks for posting.

But we are at crossed purposes. I know I can make a 100GB partition, but I needed the whole 2TBs for the data (the reason I bought the drive in the first place). I...

Yes, this is for specific use (X-Plane Ortho4XP terrain data, to be precise!) On an external HDD there is so much data being read, it causes micro-stutters. I don't have an internal HDD - in this...

With respect, nothing is 100% reliable, and I have had Macrium refuse to recognise an image that it made. There's not really a lot of room for mistakes. You just select the restore operation and...

Thanks, but no. I want the 'backup' boot partition to be identical to the one I have now, both Win7x64, one a clone of the other.

What would that give afterwards, at each boot? Both discs need to be connected after this has been done. Thanks.

Yes, I have images of the boot partitions.

I can't use all my 500GB SSD for Windows - I need it for other stuff too :-)

Making a 'backup' boot partition?

I know there is a lot on the forums here about multi-boot and might just be able to go ahead and achieve this without further advice....

I may give it a try, thanks. I've used the All CPU Meter for years and am kind of used to it (and its easy-to-read graphic interface), but if it's not giving the full picture, probably time to move...

I think that the 'All CPU Meter' is not registering any usage over 4GHz.. when I look in CPU-Z, I can see that the clock speed does indeed go over 4GHz. Sorry, probably a flase alarm?

A 1080Ti will fit, I checked, but there are size variations I guess.

Which GTX 1080 Ti?

I run X-Plane 11 on a mini format PC: i7-4790K @ 4GHz, 16GB RAM.. but the GTX970 4GB is a bottleneck and I am thinking of biting the bullet and buying a 1080Ti. X-Plane would certainly run a whole...

Intel CPU Turbo mode?

My CPU is an i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz (i.e. not overclocked). I use the PC to run X-Plane 11, pretty much exclusively (I have another PC for everything else), which quite often pushes the CPU to 100% use...
