You could get a second indentical HDD and do a RAID 0 setup. This way data is written and read from two drives at the same time making things a lot faster.

I know you can use Command Prompt as a messenger. Idk how interesting you think that'd be. Unfortunately I don't have enough control over it to tell you exactly how to do it. I just know about it.
