I'm tempted to just send you my head unit to be upgraded and change the setup after you write a post that makes it seem easy: I'm lucky to change backgrounds don't suppose there's some app I should download that helps unlock things and make changes easier?

During my last CPU/mobo upgrade I switched from an ivy bridge i5 over to a Ryzen 1600x. Couldn't ignore the price to performance advantage. Plus, not having as many problems with specter patches has been nice.

Oh yuck, I can totally relate, I ran a striped array for a long time thinking I was protected... right up to the moment it crapped itself and wouldn’t rebuild ☹️☹️

After that I ended up doing exactly what you did, split my 7 drives between two PCs but rather than using another “utility” to do my copies and backups I used MSSynctoys with Windows Scheduler to kick off my events.

Good luck brother, I wish you all the luck!

Check in the Grand Prairie area, there are yards along Hwy 80.
