added SSD but C drive still grinds on downloads

Postby skipskip » Tue Feb 27, 2018 1:43 am

I added a USB SSD drive and send my downloads to it along with my nzb and my unrar folder.

everything goes into it fine, but while downloading my main hard drive in the case runs full tilt.

do I need to do something differently or am I understanding impaired?

In the options select "Open Data Folder" and see what folder opens up. I suspect your data folder is still in the internal driver.

Is the port USB3? USB3 drive should be fast enough as long as the port is also USB3.
