Ive just read a thread regarding 'slow'PC performance and it was recommended to convert drives to NTFS.What does this mean and would it improve my IBM thinkpad R31 with memory upgrade of "2X512mb. Thanx in advance.
OK - in My Computer, right-click on your C: drive icon and then click on Properties, you will then see Type - Local Disk and File System NTFS. It is unlikely to be the other main Format (File System) which is FAT32.
No apologies necessary - we all had to learn, the same as you.
If you want to try to speed things up a bit, I would recommend a bit of Disk maintenance, like in Internet Explorer>Tools>Internet Options and delete Cookies and delete Files. Also you could right-click on an empty part of your desktop and then hover curser over 'Arrange icons by' and then click on Run Desktop clean-up Wizard. Then you could download IObit SmartDefrag from click here to defrag your hard-drive. Doing all that should certainly make a difference to your speed.
