What/Where is your hard drive setup?
My 3 hard drives are configured as... (WD = Western Digital)
1 - 320G WD Win7 64bit Pro and all program installs
2 - 320G WD Win7 swap file and video project files
3 - 1T WD all video files... read and write files
my hd setup
1 - 640gb system drive + virtual memory
2- 750gb adobe media cache
3 - 1tb exports, stock footage, etc
4 - 4tb G-Speed RAID-5 eSata a/v and project files
about a month ago I added the RAID storage but worked fine util last week.
Windows drive indexing set to OFF for all drives and folders?
correct. the "allow indexing" box is unchecked for all drives
How is your RAID controlled, i.e. separate RAID controller card?
Do you have active, real-time-scanning anti-virus, or spy sweeping software installed?
It's a G-Speed which has it's own self-contained raid controller. the unit just plugs into the eSata port and the computer just sees it as a hard drive.
no anti-virus software, I only go online with this computer for software updates. I use Flow 1.4 which does work in the background but it was never an issue before. it's a windows 7 x64 system.
