Dual Core Will it speed Up file copying ??
Ath the moment if i have 2 things being copied they slow down to a
crawl as usal. Would dual core speed this up or atleast not make it as
bad as it is with a single cpu ???
Or does it it have somthing to do with the Harddrive as well. Ive got
a SATA 150 drive, NCQ i dont think so.
/PS If it does that alone would be a reason to go dual core. Pisses me
off having to only copy one file at a time. Want to do maybe atleast 3
leave it and just do the copy.
Just backing up at the moment and have to moce things arround.
Re: Dual Core Will it speed Up file copying ??
Copying one thing from one drive to a different drive is
fastest. Copying to same drive requires quite a bit more
heat movement and buffer flushing, lack of effective read or
write prediction. Copying two things at once, even worse.
Try to refrain from copying multiple things and consider
getting a 2nd hard drive.
How large are these files?
I assume you mean multiple file copy commands, as-in, you
initiate a large file copy but before it's done you then
initiate a 2nd large file copy? If so, select both files
simultaneously and make the single copy request for both
files, so that it fully copies one file, the upon completion
of that one, begins the next file and so on.
