Welcome to SevenForums!

Really, there is not much you can do. Give ti as much free space as possible, defragment it, and try running WEI again. Otherwise, you can buy a better hard drive. An SSD will get a much higher score.

Hope this helps,

Those ratings are not very accurate. If you have no problems playing games and performing other tasks, especially those with high ram needs, don't worry about it.

Actually, 5.9 for disk is an outstanding rating! The only way you can really increase that is to use a SSD for your boot/OS drive instead of a standard hard disk.

Your other scores are great too. I think the problem is not your scores, it is how the WEI tallies and presents the "Base Score". It makes it appear as though your hard disk is creating a monster bottleneck and dragging your whole system down, when in fact, it is not.

Bottom line - you have great scores. Don't worry about it.

Another reason to not worry about them is they are bound to go down - well, they will stay the same while new computers will achieve higher scores. Why? Because as the state-of-the-art improves, and faster CPUs, graphics cards, and mass storage become common place, Microsoft WILL slide the maximums achievable up again.
