I have 2 SATA HDs in my PC (Win XP SP3, C2D E6600, 4GB RAM).
They used to be a 500GB Sagate main (C,D) and a Samsung 320GB secondary (E,F) for backup and scratch, both NTFS.
Windows search was much faster in the 500GB drive, and I considered this to be due to the 500GB being faster than the 320GB.
Recently I upgraded the main drive to a 1T Seagate and replaced the 320GB with the 500GB (same partitioning as above on both drives).
To my surprise, the search on the secondary drive became quite slower than it used to be when the same drive was primary, so the 320GB was slower for some other reason, also.
Any explanation for it?
