Windows 7: Windows 7 harddisk index score

Windows 7 harddisk index score

Hello all,
I just installed Windows 7 (build 7022) and my friend told me about this forum. So i had a look and this forum became quite handy, but lets get to the point

Windows 7 has a kind of benchmark of your system just like Vista. Of course I was wondering about what score my system would have on Windows 7. So I benchmarked and all scores were quite the same, except for my harddisk. on vista i had a score of 5.7 and on Windows 7 a score of 3.0, which I think is strange. Does someone know what the problem is.

I dont know, I dont have a maxtor though. Maybe is it because there was nothing on my drive. After all, I 'benchmarked' on Vista when I pretty much on my harddrives. I'll benchmark again when my drives are some filled up

I think it has something to do with disabling the cache writing on the primary HDD, give a try to see if it helps, some people have gone from a score of 3 to a score of 6.

Thanks! But i cant test it now. I'm now on school .

So it can't be the fault of the drivers? Or you give one option? And there more?

I think it is in Device manager you need to look, under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, go to properties and you want to disable it not enable it. I am not sure that this is the right location to do this as I have an SLI board and it doesn't give me that particular option but I don't need to worry about it either as my score is the same as in Vista

I think you can on the My computer page, right click on a drive. And choose dont Cach or Indexering orso.

Hehe, but mine isnt the same. But thanks, I'll try to do that. But I'm upgrading my pc pretty soon (I hope), because my birthday is pretty close to get some new parts. Price was around Ä500-520, and this was with a new harddrive .

Oh well,
You will hear more if I get the new parts.
