After more than a year of running Windows 95 OSR2 on the Toshiba Tecra 720CDT laptop, I'm have found that it is becoming unreliable. I already bought a Compact Flash to IDE hard drive adapter and I will use one of the SanDisk Ultra 8 GB Compact Flash card to use as a internal hard disk. I bought a Syba Best Connectivity 2.5" IDE 44-pin to Dual Compact Flash Adapter for $14.17 and I'm going to use the SanDisk 8GB Ultra CF card (SDCFH-008G-A11) as the boot device on the Toshiba Tecra 720CDT laptop and the SanDisk Ultra 8 GB (SDCFHS-008G-AFFP) card as the PCMCIA drive. This is especially the case since ATA-33 IDE hard drives are no longer sold as new. I'm considering re-installing Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on the Tecra 720CDT laptop after getting the CF card installed on the CF-to-IDE card although I should be aware that neither the Tecra 720CDT laptop nor Windows NT 4.0 supports hard disks and other media larger than 7.88 GB...so, I'm maxing out the hard drive and memory. Since Windows NT 4.0 uses the NTFS 4.0 file system, how well will Windows NT 4.0 play out when it is installed on the compact flash card? I personally found that compact flash cards are more reliable than MLC SSDs as far as I know. Thoughts, anyone?
