    Default Super Slow Import Speeds

    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.

    I have/use
    *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
    *Newest hem/postgres
    *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!

    30-50 hands/s already is really fast considering they are 10 MB .txt files.
    If the files would be a LOT smaller (<200 kb) you should see faster import speeds.

    Do you know of any good notepad programs to break files down small?

    I have found a few but they all dont know where one hand ends and another begins so if I break them down too small (from the 1 gig ish files that I had extracted) there is tons and tons of import errors since hands are randomly cut off....

    Soooo my database crashed - you guys couldnt find out why. Now I am getting horrible import speeds - not getting any help.

    I was just finishing a 500 meg chunk of 200kb import files--went from about 40hands/sec down to about 20---so once it was done I did a re-index and a defrag. I now went on to the next import and it was again 500megs of 200kb files --- and is going at 8.7 hands/sec -- SLOWER after the re-index and defrag. Something is going on - I need a team viewer or something because this is not working how it has for last 2 years...
