36GB HDD, 1GB RAM. Internet access 1MB cable broadband
NIS2005, Ad-aware, Spybot & SpywareDoctor keep it clean
Installed new 160GB HDD as slave to 36GB master
Set FS for new 160GB HDD as NTFS (too big for FAT32)
Therefore converted old 36GB master drive from FAT32 to NTFS as well
36GB master is now partitioned into 512byte clusters
Now games are fast but file/folder retrieval & opening takes ages as does website opening.
Cannot reload system because reload disks, ok before, now don't recognise the PC.
Is slowness due to:
1) 512byte clusters on master drive being too small?
2) the 2 drives not being configured properly?
3) NTFS being unsuitable for 36GB master drive?
Or is there something else I missed?
