Recently I’ve begun backing up DVDs to DVD. I now have significant issues with very slow disk defragmentation and this windows XP utiltity seems to grind to a halt and even hang.
Anybody else come across this problem and find a solution? (Several adware/spyware cleaner packages have not detected anything noteworthy during subsequent scans, so I’m not thinking this is a factor.)
Here’s the software I’ve recently installed that may be factoring into this issue:
Nero 7 Essentials (as released with a Sony DRX-830u DVD drive installed in the last 2 days on my computer)
2 Firmware updates (1 for the drive above and another for the dvd/cd player in my tower… both acquired by way of ImgBurn.)
Also, screen refreshing has become significantly degraded - even when NOT running DVD backup utilities and codes mentioned above.
Any thoughts? dvdFab seems to frag the crap out of my hard drive, so maybe the defrag is slow on account of putting all the pieces back together, but even after a couple of back to back defrags, the process still seems to hang a bit too long for comfort.
