I know that every time I have to do a reinstall (even from the official msdn XPProSP3 cd) I have hours of updating to do to bring it up to todays date. It would be nice to not have to do a reinstall. Plus with all the stuff I like to load at bootup it takes about 2 minutes when I include my wi-fi adapter establishing a connection as well.
Question: If you decide to replace hard drives can you "ghost" the existing OS installation on the HDDBOOST SSD back to the larger HDD that you swapped in? That would make it painless indeed if you have HDD corruption to at least get your OS back up and usable as quickly as possible, then you can hookup that faulty drive to another connection in your box and use a data recovery app like GetDataBackFast to try to salvage your data. I could use that kind of functionality.
Thanks for the review Austin, I'm going to be keeping an eye on this once it hits the shelves. Well done!

Then if you take out the original HDD and put a freshly formatted HDD back in, does it have a feature to copy all the files from the HDDBOOST's SSD back to your regular HDD, in effect making a backup drive you can either use or put away? That's what I meant by ghosting.
