Is there anything I can do to optimize my hard drive in windows to allow MM's indexing to be faster? I just did a fresh install of Windows, restored my backup database, but its taking a really really long time to scan my music folder, like several seconds a song and I have a lot of songs. I don't remember ever having this issue in the past. My music is stored on an external sata drive.
A couple things that changed when I reinstalled Windows:
1. My installation hard drive got replaced, I'm now using a SSD for Windows 7 and my program files.
2. My user directory is now under a different name (C:/users/name)
3. I turned off indexing for both drives.
4. I reduced my paging file to 1024 mb (I have 6 gbs ddr2 ram)
Does MM rely on Windows' drive indexing? Should I turn that back on? Would changing the database path cause an initial library scan to be exceptionally slow?
