I installed a SSD, and moved "Documents" to my platter drive, and now it takes 24 seconds to load a Word Doc.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
After installing my SSD, I did as I was advised to move "Pictures" "Doc's", etc. to the old platter drive to save reads and writes.

My test word doc from the desk top shortcut took 24 seconds to open.
Photos, BTW, are quick and are on the platter drive, also.

I also disabled "indexing" per the instructions.

I did the test from a shortcut for a Word document on my old platter drive.

Any ideas about this? Is this common, or do I have something wrong?

Thanks

Office 2003. Yeah, I know. But I don't think that should be the problem...

What are the exact steps that you took to do this? Pretend that you're teaching me how to do it, as though I am a little bit of a computer novice.

What I did was go to my new SSD with Win 7, and go C / Users / Name / my documents / Properties / Location changed to "G" platter drive. (It's putting them there OK).

Where they are now is in G / Users / Name / My Documents

I had to unplug my "G" platter drive to work on another problem that I will be posting later, but it seems to have resolved itself.

My problem required me to restore due to a Windows update install loop... Which I'll post later.

So for now, we can consider it fixed, unless you can see some things I should check. I had to actually go in reverse order... also, prefetch and superfetch (?) are disabled.

Thanks in advance!

Right-click on of those folders on your G: drive like My Documents and choose Properties. Do you still see a Location tab? This is the only thing that I can think of and I'm probably not even close, but I'm at a loss for why it would be slow except for the fact that you disconnected the G drive.

 

I dunno man, it could be far more complicated than I can handle.

I suspect it might be that Office 03. Also check where you Libraries are pointed to see if they updated for the spinner drive.

I have Word and Outlook 2003 with absolutely no problems. All of my Word documents open up instantly. So, it's not Office 2003.

Has the drive letter changed? I don't think Windows automatically will reassign the Documents folder location drive letter if it changes, you need to do it manually.

I made the change manually.

How do I check the library locations?
post #9 of 12
In Win7 when you click the icon that looks like a folder to open Explorer on the right there is a section that is titled Libraries



Just a sample image.

It would be in the left pane of the Explorer. Just make sure all of those for Docs, Pics and such are pointed to the proper G drive location as well. Make sure to also delete the old C drive location as it will be looking for information that no longer exists.

Or, open up the yellow folder icon for Windows Explorer on the Taskbar. Then, double-click any Library and then click the blue "Locations" link at the top of the window. Clicking this will enable you to edit the locations as you see fit.
