file transfer and wiping speed win xp

  ajbell 13:37 20 Oct 2004

Just reinstalled everything after formatting due to a virus but now have other problems. Hard drive speed is ok according to sisoft sandra but file transfers take forever. I transfer files
from one pc to another and what used to take seconds now takes several minutes,I use a usb hostbridge which used to transfer 45mb/s now its 20mb a minute also the drive takes ages to delete when using bcwipe.I have 2 hard drives and both are the same but before reinstalling only the second drive was slow. As i say sisoft sandra reports the actual drive speed as being good ,its not fragmented but theres a bottleneck somewhere when tranfering files and wiping. Dma is selected on both drives and i have reinstalled the chipset drivers. Any ideas ?.
