After upgrading to windows 8 system ninja takes several hours to do it search, something is wrong.
Before upgrade a search took max 10 minutes on my dell precision t1500 with icore7 processor.
Can you fix this.December 9, 2012 at 6:11 pm #8166
If you watch it run, approximately how many files is it scanning every second?December 9, 2012 at 7:06 pm #8167AnonymousInactive
it is counting up, on 5 seconds it has scanned 10000 files but the behaviour is different from my 2 other 32 bits Machines.
It only says that it found 4 tmp-files after 5 minutes of scan.
On the other 32 bit pc:s the scan is over in a couple of minutes.
On bottom on the 64bit machine number of scanned files is increasing but it doesn’t find any files. My icore7 processor has 4 cores and i didn’t had this problem when running windows 7.December 10, 2012 at 10:03 pm #8176
Could it be that there simply isn’t a lot of junk on the new PC? A fresh install of Windows would mean the filesystem is quite clean.
Another possibility is the presence of a Windows.old directory in C:/. Windows seems to place it in the slowest part of the disk, so it takes an unusually long time to scan.December 10, 2012 at 10:43 pm #8177AnonymousInactive
windows.old could be the problem since i upgraded from windows7.
I did a fresh install of windows 8 but windows.old is in the C: directory.
Can you do a parameter in program to exclude windows.old in your scan?December 11, 2012 at 4:33 pm #8179
Not currently. The best solution is to revoke access rights to Windows.old using Windows permission manager. That will cause System Ninja to skip right over it.
