Guess I'll find out if this helps the second of my three issues with
upgrading to Win7.

My doomsday machine will have a highly-advanced technological device
called a capacitor in case someone inconveniently pulls the plug at
the last second. (If I have access to REALLY advanced technology, I
will include a back-up device known as a battery.)

I tried to use the last version of this program with XPMCE and found 
that while it recognized the eSATA drive and allowed me to access it, 
access was very slow and inconsistent.  The only way (on my box) to get 
full speed was to boot the box with the eSATA drive attached.

I will try this one later and see if I get different results.

The behavior is going to depend on the SATA controller you are using.
Some don't behave so well.

HotSwap! doesn't do much that you can't achieve manually.  You can use
Device Manager and scan for hardware changes to detect a newly
connected SATA drive.  You can use something like Sync from
SysInternals to flush the disk cache before unplugging the drive.
HotSwap! just makes it easier.

Nope, my external SATA is still unrecognized if turned on after
booting.  This problem only started after upgrading to Win7.  There
have been no hardware changes.

I will see to it that plucky young lads/lasses in strange clothes and
with the accent of an outlander shall REGULARLY climb some monument in
the main square of my capital and denounce me, claim to know the
secret of my power, rally the masses to rebellion, etc. That way, the
citizens will be jaded in case the real thing ever comes along.

Telling Hotswap! to scan for hardware changes after turning on my
external SATA did not result in the drive being seen.

When I employ people as advisors, I will occasionally listen to their
advice.

Bummer.  I haven't tried Windows 7 yet.  I wouldn't be happy if it
broke my ability to hotswap external SATA drives.

At this point, I'm guessing that it's a hardware/drive issue and I
lucked out before.

This machine does not actually have any eSATA ports.  What it does have
is six internal SATA ports, to which I have installed a pair of
"extenders" to run two of them to a back-panel plate (I got the
extenders/plate component from either Amazon or Newegg).

The SATA ports are on an AMD RAID controller, though set for individual
drive usage.
