Re: Mint install on SSD and SWAP Partition on HDD

Totally safe. Swap is just an emergency overflow for slow data when RAM gets scarce. In Mint, the high-speed stuff like program code is around 300MiB, so if Linux ever needs to use the swap, something probably went wrong.

You try to determine whether the hardware or the software has changed. Before you post please read this http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=83444

How many config files does it take to change a light bulb? None if it's a hardware problem.

Re: Blew Up Mint Again

The Mint installer doesn't add GRUB to the Windows boot menu, GRUB runs before Windows is started. Over half of the GRUB boot loader is on the disk you disconnected...plug it back in. Reboot. Hold down the right-shift key and, if nothing is broken, GRUB will offer to boot your Windows system. From t...

NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice.

Re: USB Drive Suddenly Unrecognized

USB is hot-pluggable, but storage devices, mostly, are not. SD camera cards have a specification; you only lose the file-in-progress if power is removed. No file-in-progress, no loss. Storage sticks with a USB connector? What they do is up to the manufacturer. Who made it? What did they promise?
