After giving it some thought just now, I think that it's because I haven't had Windows on a mechanical drive since at least August or early September of 2009. So, perhaps it's just that I'm not noticing it anymore due to the speed. I mean, the only other thing that I can think of is the stability of the computer. Instability can certainly cause the problem that you're describing. However, I'm more inclined to say that it's just because I have solid state drives now. I mean, I do remember back when I had Windows on a mechanical drive that I would feel like formatting and starting over maybe once every 6 months or once every couple of years at least.
