Default Saving in HD Taking a Looooonnnng Time!

Have a modest size session on an HD3. ATTO EPCI-DC with Glyph 4 banger loaded with:

Chain#1= (2) UW Seagate 36gig 15000 rpm Term
Chain#2= (1) VXA-1 and Yamaha CD-RW Term

Everytime we save it is taking an eternity.

Any ideas that will speed the save time? P.S system is becoming a bit buggy since this has shown up, crashing. Drives a pretty empty.

A large disk cache setting can cause PT to take a long time to save. Lower your Disk Cache value to 512k (Memory Control Panel) and restart the computer.

I agree with Woodywho.

I recently bought an additional 80gb drive and had the same problem.

When you save (or even when you hit record) it would take forever to get started.
I'm guessing it's checking your drive to see how much free space is there.

In preferences (under the OPERATION tab) change "use all available space" to something like 90mins.

This worked for me, hopefully it will fix your problem.

Goodluck.
