  • Installing large Hdd TIP

    Just installed my new Western Digital external drive 250gb formated it NTFC.

    But Windows turned on compress drive option, I did not know this.
    moved all my data (x6 iso's 7.05gb each) to the new drive.

    When trying to use the iso's on the drive it took ages to access them and kept getting "write failed" errors because the drive was compressed, it's just took 15 hours to un-compress the drive what a pain in the ar$e that was.

    Morel of the story is make sure the "compress drive" option is off or you will have fun playing with large files.
