High end computer slow and unresponsive when extracting

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have a high end computer and it becomes absolutely unresponsive when i'm extracting a large file.

This seems to occur when i extract 6gb+ files from my storage drives (2tb WD hd) to the same location.

I believe windows copies the files to my system drive from storage drives and that is making it super slow.

So, anyway to stop winrar from extracting the file to system drive as a cache before copying over back to my storage drive?


An example of other people having my problem is found here:

I had the same problem but was discovering I was using an older 32-bit version of WinRAR.

Try looking for an updated version that is 64-bit.

relocate the "temp folder" that winrar uses.

it uses the same drive as it is extracting on for "temp folder/files", force it to use a set location..

sorry i wrote that wrong, what it is doing, is copy the files/folders to c:\\windows\emp (or whatever it is) and then copying them back to your other drive. put the temp folder for winrar (in its setting) to the drive you are extracting from, will speed things up a lot.

Open WinRar, at the top click Options, Settings, then the "Paths" tab, and change your temporary file path to the correct drive.

Won't solve your problem but have you tried using 7zip?

Compatible with .ZIP archives and has a much simpler and more user-friendly UI IMO.
