I just purchased this HDD since my database crashed:
Top 10: HEM performance increase tips
Is this just horrible or something? I cannot get things to import fast what so ever. Each file I am importing is 10 megs in size - and I have about 25 gigs worth. The max speeds I get is like 30-50 hands/sec.
*Bought new HDD (Cant afford solid state as that would be way too expensive for the size I need) (Use a Cord 2 Quad 2.66 GHZ CPU)
*Installed 8 gigs of ram
*Set all priorities to high in task maager
*Defrag (yet even on newest imports its going slow.. like 30-50hands/sec on a brand new empty drive with only POSTGRES and HEM installed)
*Re-index (again..even though I have JUST started importing)
*Did tons of the WIN 7 performance tips
*Turned off indexing/Set everything for best performance
Still cannot get good speeds. Is that HDD just not good? What else am I missing? Is it because they are 10 meg files and should be smaller? I am trying to import in 2 gig chunks (in 10 meg files) and not getting anywhere fast!
