Description of how Windows optimizes the virtual memory to minimize the need for hard pagefaults.
Applications optimized to run on single CPU systems, will perform worse on multi CPU systems.
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) can improve hard disk performance, as it optimizes the order to execute read and write commands.
Use power management to throttle the processor when idle, and get a cool CPU temperature.
Configure the file copying method to use cached I/O requests instead of non-cached.
The hard disk performance is very dependent on the configuration of the disk cache.
Disabling the page file to prevent Windows from unloading memory to the hard disk.
Lower the disk activity by disabling the updating of when a file was last accessed.
Speed up the creation of new files by not creating a 8.3 filename for backward compatibility.
Finding the the optimal size and location for the Windows swap file.
The Master File Table is the index for all files and directories placed on a ntfs partition and critical for ntfs performance.
