    Slow to create folders in windows

    I have like a 1-2 second delay. Anyone know why this is happening? Its a quick machine, i4770s, 16gb RAM and a Samsung 840 Pro SSD...

    Thanks

    Thanks Marcvs. How can I check my RAM? No physical problems and its properly seated and all other functions, like photoshop, are fast. It would seem to me like its something windows related?

    What Antivirus are you running? I've seen AV cause this kind of issue.

    Re: Slow to create folders in windows

    I doubt it's ram related. If it's a HDD your saving to (and not the SSD) I would look at power saving options (does a immediate subsequent folder create also have a delay?)

    If it's all on the SSD, make sure your running in in AHCI mode.

    Also, if it's Windows 8/8.1 then there is AV built in...

    Re: Slow to create folders in windows

    How's memtest doing, any results? Check also the HDD (SMART and surface test). And the last suggestion about power saving options is also valid.

    Re: Slow to create folders in windows

    Hi guys, I ran 4 pass memtest and no issues.

    AHCI is on. Samsung SSD is also in rapid mode and fine. Power is set to high performance.

    An immediate subsequent folder also has a delay...

    its so annoying!
