lot of hard drive thrashing sound in windows 7
Posted on 2011-05-08
My newly installed Windows 7 professional on an old 8 year old PC, seems to keep resulting in disk thrashing and I dont know what it is doing. My old XP system never did this, even with indexing in the background.
I recently left the PC on for several days and its constantly doing something in the background. Is indexing in windows 7 more data intensive?
There is nothing wrong with the drive. The spec is 2gb RAM, 160gb HD with about 10 gig of space left on my c drive and 6 gig free on the d drive.
