    My laptop is slow after power on.-clipboard.png

    I freed up a little more. I can remove another 200GB of data from the C: drive. The final size of C is around 195GB. How do you put in the 120GB drive?

    You only transfer windows and programs and the data remains in the HDD. You don't need to remove anything.
    For security you must make a disk image on the Maxtor. If something goes really bad you can recover from the image.
    This is my drive tree. I have a 120G SSD with windows and programs in one 85G partition and Lubuntu on a 35G partition. All my data is on the 1T HDD.

    @all

    I remembered that in xp's bootvis there was the possibility to see the movement of the disk head and I tried to see if with the Windows Performance Record it was possible to have the same result. I have found that there is indeed a problem with the disk partition. The disc head moves from one end to the other keeping the disc busy.

    Having a smaller partition might help but I'd like to move the affected files instead. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out which files are affected. I do not know how to do it (to derive the files names with the performance analyzer)

    Maybe I can save myself the solid drive money.

    Can anyone help me.

    Should I open another thread or can I stay on this one?

    Is your disk de-fragmented?
    By default it is weakly scheduled.
    run dfrgui.exe

    ok, i'm doing a full defragmentation with windows defrag. It's been going for 1 and a half days.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I put everything back in place, except mcafee, and the time after mydefrag optimization is about 4:30.
    So one problem is having a large partition.

    I then did the window defrag but things stayed the same 4:33-4:45

    I would like to try with a smaller partition maybe I still go down with time.

    Should I use the windows tool to reduce and enlarge the partition or do I create a large file to put at the end of the disk in order to plug the final spaces of the disk?

    Partition size has no relation to boot times.
    Boot times is only related to what it loads (software) and the hardware (CPU, Memory & Drive). Specially the drive. And you have one of the slowest drive I've ever seen.

    I repositioned the files almost to the beginning of the disk (simulating a smaller partition) and the boot+post boot went from 6:00-7:00 min to 4:30.

    EDIT:
    I'm not just talking about the boot time but also the time from login to becoming operational. If the files to be loaded are scattered over a large partition the disk seek time goes up and the disk seems slower.

    Try uninstalling One drive and Skype. If the problem is solved use Google drive. But remove Google drive from the boot using Micrsoft's Autoruns.
