Dangit, I though I had it all! Do I install control center as well? Thank you SO MUCH for all the help!

If you want to, I always tick the box to have the control center installed.

Your alignment is very odd lol. 4096 or 106496 (if you have a system reserve partition) is optimal. If you want to, realign it.

Haha I was wondering if 4 was ok and not 4096... hmm will probably realign in a bit. I guess whatever EaseUS did with its' "SSD Optimization" is to blame.


Actually what is the alignment supposed to be for HDD's in Raid 0 stripe? Curiosity made me look and my array is showing 31 k ?
Should it be 1024 or 4096? Should I even bother? Talking 1 terrabyte array.

Yea, I had the same thing. It aligned mine weird for my v100 and I did the alignment and my speeds got a small boost.

Make sure you back up your OS first! I had it freeze once and had to restore then start over.
