....and another question:

can windows be installed on a drive with data already on it, or does it need to be blank?
In case the SSD is dying.
(should've asked this before starting to copy data)
You need to isolate the problem, try running for a while with your old HDD disconnected and see if you have no more funny stuff. I  think SSD failure is rare, anyone here have one fail?

MTBF — MTBF (mean time between failures) is a measure of how reliable a hardware product or component is over its expected lifetime. For most components, the measure is typically in thousands or even tens of thousands of hours between failures. For example, a hard disk drive may have a mean time between failures of 300,000 hours, while an SSD might have 1.5 million hours.

Hi Wally, Phil suggested you may be able to help.
My Car Radar app has stopped working :'( . I have deleted and reloaded the app into python, it is enabled, shows up as enabled in CM but does not appear in the app sidebar when ingame.
I was running with Helicorsa last night, but in the middle of being swamped by passing cars Hellicorsa was useless, I could not tell which white rectangle was me.
Thanks in anticipation.
Hi Roo.

I have changed my Helicorsa so that my car is red (or white, can't remember now) and all the other cars around me are green. Maybe I could give you that?
That would be good, thanks Wally.

5.7MB is 45.6mb. You didn't make that mistake in your post, but I mention it just incase.
As usual you are right Seanus ::) I have mixed up Bits and Bytes :-[ :-[ :-[.

Why do I think 5.7MB is slow, I am sure ADSL2+ download speeds were faster, or is that just wishful thinking.

Heavily wishful.  No adsl2 was able to do 40+mbps (megabits per second).  But software is getting bigger, that may give the impression that things are slower.  Red Dead 2 is enormous, so...

But since you've fttp/ftth, you could get 100 or even 150 or 250 downstream connections (admittedly, the over-100 connections are rare)
I was also thinking the same Bird , software has really bloated, tracks for AC are now often well over 100Mbytes.
I think I have become confused with the downloads speeds I was getting when I first connected to the NBN four and a half years ago, I think initially I was getting up to 30+ Mbytes/sec downloads, even though my connection was only 50/20, and over time the network has become congested and DLs are now throttled.

I have a FTTP connection and paying for a Iinet/TPG 50/20 speed. Whenever I do a speed test the result is always close to the 50/20 I am paying for.
However any download I undertake the MAXIMUM speed I can ever achieve is 5.7 Mbs, from Steam with no download speed limit set, from Rockstar Games Red Dead 2 ( took a day to download ::) ::) ::)).
Is it possible for an ISP to be using some form of software to Throttle downloads speeds for any download other than a Speed test?
Does anyone else have the same problem? It is really starting to shit me >:(. Am I being ripped off.

Test you speed downloading one of these files
