Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This may be a stupid question as the obvious answer is to break them up into different folders but I'll ask anyway.
I've been gradually ripping my DVD's to my HDD, some work better than others in the process but I'm slowly getting there. To those asking I think its easier and more convenient. When someone mentions something in a topic I can just click and see the scene in question.
Anyways. As it stands I have 122 movies at a size of 89.3GB on a single HDD. This HDD is partitioned into the movies drive and a drive for installing games. However I think the way that Vista organises files doesn't work very well with so many large files as while it works well it can generally be slow at accessing them which is a minor inconvenience but an inconvenience.
I'm wondering if there are any settings or tips on the organisation of so many large files short of putting them in different folders like "a-k" or something similar as its not ideally what I want to do. It also concerns me when it accesses slowly that it may be wearing on the HDD, again something I don't want to do.
So any advice or information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
