a 512GB limit until a few years ago for example but on eCS 2.x you should be OK
with all this. Having said that I've never booted an OS/2 system from a disk of
that size although I did have a Netcell RAID card in my OS/2 system for a long
time with a 640GB array and that was fine - but I didn't boot from it.

running with a Core2Duo E6850 3GHz processor and a 5 year old motherboard here
and it's still plenty fast enough.

made a *huge* difference. I went from an LSI MegaRAID Express 500 hardware RAID
controller with 128MB cache RAM and a pair of Fujitsu 15k rpm 73GB disks in RAID
1 to the SSD and my boot time has decreased from ~2 minutes to 22 seconds. It's
similarly speedy in general use though it's really too soon to tell how reliable
it will be and how it will slow down over time due to the lack of TRIM support
in OS/2. SSD prices have pretty much halved here in the UK in the last 6 weeks!
I paid only a little more for a new 256GB SSD two weeks ago than I did for this
128GB one in January 2012.

another 4 while it was scanning. It's definitely on its way out and you should
be backing up your critical files on a regular basis in case it dies completely.

open. If using it with the /F switch refuses to run because it's in use then any
report without /F will be unreliable and report problems that don't really
exist. OTOH, if you are running it with /F and it is really checking it then you
do have a problem.
