It seems as though something is eating up my hard disk time on a virtual machine. I’m running on server 2008. How do I go about finding out what is dominating the HD time? Note that, Task manager does not work and Performance Monitor seems to give only some pretty graphs, which is not helpful.
Can anyone help please?
Hard Disk Time Storage Issue on a Virtual Machine
An easy way to increase the hard disk time is to move the swap file. Right click on My Computer, and click on properties=>advanced system settings=>Performance settings. You will see an “Automatically managed…” checked box over there. Uncheck the box and set your default drive to no paging file and then select any other drive having larger space to System Managed. This will increase your hard disk time.
Another way is to increase the size of the default drive. Use Windows drive manager for it. Move the data from any one of your drives to any other logical drive and delete that drive. Add the space to the default drive. It would be more effective than the previous method.
If you have enough empty space but less HD time, then you got a lot of junk files in your drive. These files don’t take much space but contributes a lot in slowing down your pc. Use http://disksweeper-free.en.softonic.com/ to clean out the junk files from your drives. Hope this will work for you.
