    Ran it twice on 512MB file size (2183.7 res, 273.8MB Finder starting size, 512.0MB Pshop size after opened), Finder size after test completion 388.8GB.

    Only differences from Test1 are Data Volume and File Save Volume are the RaptorRAID. Scratch Volume still the RAID Volume
    Same as Test2 except file sized 1.5GB
    Same as Test2 except file sized 3.0GB
    Same as Test2 except file sized 6.0GB

    1. I added the fact that for all of the tests I used RAID 128KB stripes.
    2. Keeping the System Volume out of the test mix in Test2 does make a difference, especially since it is 48% full, and even more full during the test.
    3. The test runs great Boots. Very nice and thoughtful work. No complaints at all.
    4. The 6.0GB file size test, 60s pauses, took somewhat longer than tested before, previous best 1859s, but I always used an 11 or 12 drive RAID. 85s more is a small price to pay for simplicity of a 4-drive RAID and more foot room.
    5. For most of the 6.0GB tests, 60s pauses were more than ample, longest I saw was 40-45s of activity after the Progress window disappeared. That is until I got near the end of the tests. For instance, Convert to Profile and Convert Mode. But the 60s pause timer is smart. In Convert Mode:
    Progress window closed, 67s later disk activity stopped, another 45s it went on to the next step. So 60s pauses were good for me because the start of the pause did not start when the Progress window closed.
    6. My calculations for the 6GB test with 60s pauses:
    Total test time 45m24s = 2724s, 13x60s pauses = 780s
    2724s - 780s = 1944s
