OK, I thought I had cured my disk thrashing by turning of things I don't
need. Then it came back again, and it goes on for more than an hour.
Auto defrag is off as well. I do a lot of video editing and today have
not been able to get on at all due to this disk thrashing again. The
hard disk access stops smooth playback of video files. I tried running
disk defrag and then stopped it. I think it may have made things worse
by stopping it!
I'm now running Disk Keeper 2008 disk defragmentor, to see if it helps.
It stated the disk was moderatly fragmented.
Im running Vista Home premium 32 bit, with 3gb ram, q6600 nVidia
My performance rating is averaged at 5.4.
The hard disk is SATA ll 700gb 564gb free space
Intel core 2 Quad processor.
I have tried turning off Superfetch, it seemed to cut the disk
thrashing, but then I noticed files were slow opening or populating the
explorer view. It generaly slowed things. So activated it again.
Any tips to help speed up my Vista appreciated.
