Well, I actually didn't notice it; it was WINDOWS that noticed and gave me a number of consecutive low disk space warnings.

You replace the motherboard. tongue.gif Seriously, unless you go with a hardware RAID card (costs way more than most motherboards), most PCIe SATA controllers tend to be pretty crappy. For the price of a decent RAID card, you can probably replace your CPU (~$200 Core i5) + MB (~$120 Z77) + RAM (~$40 8GB DDR3).

Yeah, I thought it would be something like that; I do need a new computer soon anyways. She's getting to be a little old now. tongue.gif Although, I guess I don't want to retire it completely; I'll look around and see if I can find what P45 boards are going for these days.
