    Too much disk thrashing with WD + Strange games issue


    Hello.

    Even if I am running my games from SSD I have noticed a lot of hard disk activity when launching them and a lot of almost non stop disk activity coming from WD (Hell, it seems it's performing a quick scan almost twice a day).

    I am not saying WD isn't good but that constant disk thrashing was getting on my nerves. I am now trying the new v8 from Qihoo's 360 TSE and that disk thrashing is no more and some of my games start up a lot faster (I mean a lot, like 10x).

    Just posting this for you to know.

    Microsoft apps are old-school, basic and not very optimized, WD included. They are just meant to work and that is it.
