World of Warcraft in Vista

Hello,

I have my WoW installed on a separate partition, b/c I thought this
would speed it up (something about the computer not having to look
through ALL of its memory during game play). However, whenever my
computer does ANYTHING else, I experience a 5-10 second lag in game
play. I have a 2 Ghz dual processor and over 200 gigs of space on my
main drive (the WoW drive has 15/30 gigs being used right now).

Is the problem being caused by WoW being on a separate partition?

if so, would removing that partition fix the problem? And can I do that
without reinstalling WoW (WoW regularly updates with patches downloaded
from the internet, which would take several hours to redownload and
install).

Thanks!

Re: World of Warcraft in Vista
How much RAM does your system have?

It won't matter where WoW is installed, unless you've got an underlying
issue on the system which would only effect that drive.

You can just move WoW to the other partition if you wanted to try that, it
doesn't particular need its registry keys or anything, the patchers all work
relative to their own location. You'd just need to update any shortcuts as
nessasary.
