  1. Windows 10 file write performance


    I was recently following the excellent tutorials on using Macrium Reflect free. I successfully created a clean windows install (using yet another excellent tutorial), updated all drivers, installed all patches and applications.
    I then used the Macrium boot USB to start my desktop and created an image of this perfect install to an external HDD. The process worked without a hitch.
    However I have noticed something peculiar, under the Macrium boot OS, the write speed of the external HDD is quoted as 503Mbs (365Mbs was the slowest write speed). My entire 33Gb install was imaged in just under 11 minutes.
    Once back in Windows I decided to copy the image I had made to another partition as a backup, Windows reports the write speed of the external HDD as 20Mbs max, and quite often well below 8Mbs. The copy operation took well over half an hour.
    So why the difference? Is the overhead for Windows 10 really that bad? And what if anything can I do to improve the performance?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    No, that > bla.txt is the target file to write to. You could use a wildcard in the argument, ie c:\windows\*.txt which would list all dlls in c:\windows. But adding that to a simple right-click would be tricky.

    Basically you would execute fancyfile.bat c:\windows\*.txt, fancyfile.bat would then write all .txt files to bla.txt.
