Windows 7: Slow loading times when using gimp or any video converter?

17 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
Slow loading times when using gimp or any video converter?

It's a little hard to explain

When i try to use any video converter to make videos. It sometimes slows down loading times. It's like the folders themselves fail to load. It's a little weird.

I took a pic of what some folders look like. Windows is not crashing or anything just taking a really long time to load. If anything it doesn't load at all it just tries to load forever!

If that happens ONLY when the video converter is working (converting a video), it could be normal.

Video conversion requires a lot of disk read/write activity, so yeah, it could slow down any other read/write activity, like loading the icons for the folders like in your screenshot.

The same should happen if you copy say 10 times a biggish file from and to same disk, at once.
