Re: I want to reduce the intensive disc activity immediately after log
The CPU usage and the drive usage immediately after booting to the Windows
Desktop is the SuperFetch cache being populated. This will continue till all
of the RAM has been allocated, either to running programs or cached. I would
you suggest you allow it to do what it is designed to do.
The more RAM you have the longer it will take to do this.
