ok, i think my suddenly slow comp has to do with my "device 0" being in PIO mode. Now i have no idea what the fuck i just said, but have a look:
PC Pitstop said i had major problems in the uncached part of my C: drive. It suggested i check out to see if i'm in PIO mode, well i am, in device 0. is this a problem? and how do I get back into DMA mode? It is selected as you can see, but won't go back even with a restart.
Any help is DEEPLY appreciated.
EDIT: and is jumping from 76 fragmented files to over 350 in roughly three hours normal?
