I have two hard drives in my computer. One was primarily used for media and data file and the other one contained the OS and programs. I recently started having my log in time take up to three minutes before I was actually logged in. Avtually it was four minutes. I has wondering should I format my data hd for an new install and transfer the files from the slow one to the new one. Or is there a way to increase the start up times on the old one. I prefer to just do a completely new install but then I was wondering should I make separate partitions. Thanks
