Re: Improving checkout performace

On NTFS you can improve read performance by disabling the last access
timestamp tracking.

This could break some things (though I always use it and haven't seen it
break anything yet)
Basically every time you read a file it has to write to the hard drive the
new last accessed timestamp value, though I assume NTFS probably does some
caching to minimize that performance hit.

In shell:
fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1

You can see if it worked:
fsutil behavior query disablelastaccess

This shouldn't fix your problem, but I keep it in my witchdoctor bag of
performance tricks.
And I have *faith* that it increases my drive life some.

Doesn't work on fat.
