can you suggest any ways of speeding things up.
I am going to try once more. My internal hdd is 500 gig 5400 rpm toshiba.
Is there anyway that I might know whether any of the drives are fragmented
the internal drive has 420 gb free space.
So I don't think that it has been fully fragmented. there might be some other issue with my setup. I will just give it another try.
