Some models of HDD manufacturers equip function AAM - Automatic Acoustic Management that allows you to adjust the level of noise during operation of the disk. Noise levels are significantly lower in these drives, but the speed of head positioning is much slower relative to the models without the function of AAM. Disabling AAM allows to increase the performance of disk. However, not all models support HDD off.
One of the utilities that allow it to make – MHDD. To change the settings of disk , you can use this program without a reboot at any time to cancel changes. Download the utility, install and run it to execute. Window, type the command Aam c key *D that will allow you to disable AAM and achieve maximum performance.
If you are the owner of hard disk Maxtor, you can use the MaxBoost is a special utility that allows you to increase the speed of the disk subsystem by caching data in RAM before transferring them to the hard disk. According to manufactures, the performance of hard drives increases to 5 – 30%.
Increase the amount of RAM by adding additional memory module. This will allow you to reduce the size of the paging file to the minimum value and reduce the number of accesses to the HDD. To change this setting on the Advanced tab, opening the "Properties" from the context menu of "My computer". Find the section "Performance" and click on the "Settings" button, change the value for the minimum size of the paging file.
Increase the number of physical disks to two, and ideally use a RAID array. This will give you a performance gain by splitting read operations-write.
Do not forget to defragment your disk. Access time at high file fragmentation on the disk is much slower.
Advice 2: How to add from D drive to C drive memory
There are times when the breakdown of the hard drive partitions disk , which by default is system, allocate too little memory. Of course, you can completely delete all partitions and allocate memory via new. But there is a way easier to take the memory on the D drive and transfer it to the C drive.

- Norton PartitionMagic 8.0.
You will need Norton PartitionMagic 8.0. Find it on the Internet and download. The program is paid but has a trial period of its use. Install the application on your computer.
Run the program. After that, you will see that the main menu has a list of all sections. Click on the D partition, right-click and from the context menu select "resize/move". In the line "New size" specify, respectively, the new size of the disk. Note that you can only take the available space. For example, the size of drive D 200 GB, 80 GB free. Specifying a new size of 150 GB, you free 50 GB space, which can be added to the disk s free space on disk D will remain now 30 gigabytes.
You can also enter in the line "free sites" the right amount of disk space. Then it will be automatically "withdrawn" from the disk D. once a new size is chosen, press OK. Now you have free disk space.
Later in the main program menu in the top section "Select", locate the option called "allocate free space". In the first window can read the introductory information. After that, click "Next". In the next window, select your disk and go on. In the last window click "Finish".
After that starts the procedure for the allocation of free disk space. All you need to do is to wait for the completion of this operation. Do not interrupt the operation of the distribution. In some cases, it can take quite some time. It depends on the type of your hard disk, its file system and the amount of disk space that you move. After redistributing free space the computer will reboot. Now, the disk With will be more.
