|I am wondering: with a 640 GB hard drive, how much free space should one make sure is available to ensure optimum performance?|
Another thing, I read with modern hard drives there is no reason to assign separate drives for system or separate tasks, but I often do a number of things at once, running various applications, downloading, etc., and all are accessing this hard drive.
I have been running my new system since January, and while at first it was very snappy, it has very noticeably slowed down over time, and seems much less responsive to me now.
Could this be HD related? Is it really the case that multiple things going on on the same drive won't slow me down? And is my slowdown overtime just to be attributed to Windows?
Thanks for your feedback.
