    Extractions extremely slow for some reason!


    I usually keep my game setups in rar formats and that saves me a lot of space over all and just recently (couple of weeks ago i think) i extracted an 8gig file within a few minutes without any problems but now i just tried to extract 4 files of 4,588,544 KB each and it says 3H:28 mins. This is a lot by any standards.
    System specs as below,this problem shouldn't occur with a quad core i7. Whats the use of all those threads if you cant use em -_-
    Also the CPU usage for WinRar doesn't go above 15% for some reason no matter what i do. Tried setting priority to highest in task manager but still nothing.

    ~ 18.5 GB in 3:28. Wow damn, holy crap, where can I sign up? Storage is the bottleneck (if you want to call it that - technically, it is), not the cpu.

    Ohhhh I gotcha.

    Defragment the source and target partitions, or the hard drive if it is just one useable partition.
