Speeding up hard drives?

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Thomas, Jun 3, 2010.

    I read in another post something about speeding up hard drives, or access to
    the read write cycles. I have 2 drives installed on My Windows 7 64 bit
    machine. I have a Gigabyte MB with a dual core Intel 3 gig processor. I
    don't understand a whole lot about IEDE modes and some of the settings I
    have seen seem to be missing or just not available. The drives are both
    7200 RPM, one is a 500 Gig (Primary) and the other is a 1 TB. Is there a
    method of speeding up the access/read/write of these drives?

    Maybe, but mistakes will make your system unusable and possibly wipe out
    your installation. At the least you would want to do a full backup first.
    Given your stated level of knowledge, I'd strongly recommend leaving things
    be. Unless you're an extreme gamer or performance hobbyist or do very disk
    intensive work like large database operations there's unlikely to be any
    benefit worth the risk.

    Doing that is playing with fire. Leave it be. Of you want a hard drive that is fast
    then next time purchase one that can run at 15,000 RPM or plus. Costly but extremely
    fast

    And even faster (but more costly) is a solid state drive.

    From what I've seen of solid state drive specs the read write speeds are
    slower than 7900 RPM SATA drives.
    Are there any specific ones you are thinking of?

    Actually, Vista/Win7 is the slowest OSes out there to copy files disk to
    disk or disk to net or net to disk.

    Run Solaris, Linux (any version), Open/Free or Net-BSD and they all
    consistantly run 3 to 10 times faster than Vista/Win7 for copy
    operations, especially on large files such as 4gb media files.

    I tried this with a 2.66 processor Dual core (4 processors) chip, 4
    gig memory. Fedora 12 and Gnome 2.28.2.

    Copying a 1,569,816 byte file from file to file on the same disk and
    in the same partition took 13.12 seconds with Linux and 30.91 with
    Windows 7 - hand timed.

    Not quite 3 times but close enough.

    This is one of the first consumer SATA III interface SSDs, and it actually
    delivers data faster than SATA II on reads. There is room for improvement
    on writes, so this won't be the fastest drive. I would expect Intel
    to develop something to match them, but give Intel a bit of time
    to do the job right. The previous generation Intel SSD was pretty good.
    (You can plug this into a SATA II port if you want. Your read speed will
    drop a bit.)

    It is still an immature technology. A firmware fix is needed for that
    particular drive, but is probably being shipped on new units by now.
    Anandtech is good at beating up the drives and making them
    malfunction :) They do better testing than many of the manufacturers.

    If you already have Windows 7 or Vista, who the hell would want to run that
    crappy Linux just to copy files? LOL!

    It's just another example of how Linux is superior to Windows but you're
    too fucking stupid to see that.

    So if Linux is so superior to Windows then why doesn't everyone ditch
    Windows and move to Linux? I'll tell you why. You are lying again. Linux
    is NOT superior and never will be superior. Granted, copying files may be
    faster but that isn't why people use their computers. Ooooops.

    It's one of the reasons and, unlike Windows, Linux tells you the
    transfer speed. Another is surfing the web which is safer with Linux.
    Yet another is email which is safer with Linux. Another is boot time
    which is much quicker with Linux. Another is cost which is far less with
    Linux. Another is the fact that you can have multiple desktops with
    Linux and you can't with Windows. Another is that Linux burns CDs and
    DVDs much quicker and better than Windows. About the only thing Windows
    has going for it is using it for gaming.

    If that's the case, then everyone would be ditching Windows and moving to
    Linux. Guess what hotshit? It isn't happening and will not happen anytime
    soon. Get over it. Find something else to do with your time. Take more
    drugs.

    Three years ago, no Ubuntu anywhere. Now it's in the stores and on
    Dell's web site. You're wrong, plain and simple.

    A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Over 12 million
    happy users says you're full of shit. How many NEW Windows users have
    bought Windows 7 without it being preinstalled on a computer? Two?

    There you go again with that magical 12 million users. You have no way of
    knowing how many saps use that shitty OS. Just because 12 million were
    unfortunate to download that dribble, doesn't mean 12 million are stuck
    using that OS. That is your big lie.

    I know lots of people who purchased Windows 7 without it being preinstalled.
    So If know quite a few, then there are millions of others. Oops.

    Does it really matter? What matters is that Windows 7 is selling millions
    and millions of copies. Ubuntu is free yet most reject it. Ubuntu is on
    less than one percent of the desktops. It doesn't matter how many updates
    there are, the fact of the matter is, Ubuntu can't even give itself away.
    Nothing else really matters in your quest as the Ubuntu Marketing
    Department.

    They (Ubuntu wanks) get what they pay for! LOL!
