    The main issue is a combination of a slow HDD (both source and target are only 5400 rpm drives, but an SSD upgrade is planned for the near future) and a LOT of installed games (originally installed to test compatibility with 8/8.1, and not yet removed). The actual recovery process is extremely simple, and much faster than a clean re-install. Without the games, recovery times are in the ball-park you indicate.

    Yes, all data is on a separate drive(s), and is also backed-up separately as well.

    Anyway, I'll download a copy of the latest build next time I visit my friend with the unlimited connection, and give it a look-see.

    Oh, I hadn't gone away, just haven't been online much lately because my connection was slowed. When one has to struggle to open an email, it makes chatting on forums a whole lot of no fun.
