Default Re: Hard Disk Read Ahead for 001


I set the Read ahead Optimization in my system to None, because this way the CPU doesn't have to go ahead and read files unnecessary that reside on the drive, thus consuming more cycles, but only those requested to perform the playback operation; it seems to like it this way, and I too found it on many tech articles and web sited discussiong PC optimization for audio workstations; I set myne as a network server too, so as to allow it for the maximum throughput capability. These and some other settings give me 94% of system performance on Win 98.

Hope this helps
