    I am a technical consultant for public safety agencies, specifically focused on GIS (geographic information systems) and MS SQL. On the GIS work especially I work with extremely large data sets. The performance of the applications I use are most heavily impacted by storage performance. The faster the storage the less time I spend waiting on geoprocessing. Some of the processes I run take upwards of 24 hours...with the NVME RAID lol. Without it they are 1.5-2 day processes. In-depth SQL work obviously benefits as well, especially when I'm creating maintenance plans and need to test things like reindexing a 500+ GB database.
    A question/suggestion.
    Could you try using ASUS RAMCache II aswell, with a sizeable amount of RAM assigned to it?
    RAMCache acts like a buffer where everything read/written to or from disks are stored in memory first and then flushed to disk in the background.

    Regarding the RAID 0s, all of my production data is stored on my SAN on SSD accelerated spindle arrays and replicated to OneDrive for Business. My fulltime job is working as a sr. systems engineer in one of the largest 911 centers in the country lol I'm not about to risk data (and more importantly my billable hours) to a RAID 0. This machine and work is for my consulting company, part time job. The 3 minutes it takes me to move a data set to the NVME stripe can save me many unbillable hours in geoprocessing time. RAID 0s are perfectly fine if used for their intended purpose -- scratch disks, accelerated workload disks and the like. Not to be relied upon for irreplaceable data. I also keep my OS partition on there for load times and the like, but it's also backed up nightly to the SAN and only contains my steam library for non-work time haha. Can be restored to a new array in less than an hour.
    Is there a more intelligent way of extracting that data than me paging through the UEFI and manually writing everything down? Or worse, taking photos with my phone...

    Yes, you can save your UEFI settings to external device such as an USB stick.
    Can't remember the exact steps, but the option should be available when you have a (FAT32?) formatted USB-drive inserted and go to the screen where you can store settings to a profile in UEFI etc.

    Wouldn't you know it. Just applied the latest March round of Windows Updates and it's fixed. I had a feeling this was something at the OS level, though I'm still left wondering what....


    Oh well, at least it works now LOL.

    Thanks for all the help and input everyone!
