I run Win 8.1 on my Lenovo G700, but I get really bad disk performance with Perfmon pointing the finger at the response times of $Mft (typically 1000's of ms)
I am only using approx 50% of the space on 1TB disk, chkdsk shows no errors and the disk is defragged. Contig from sysinternals shows the $Mft as only comprising 1 extent.
Startup can take 5+ mins before system is useable. Disk is solid 100% active for all this time
Any ideas on how to solve this?
