Hey all,

I have Renegade installed in a second partition on the same HDD. It is installed on my D Drive in seperate Programs folder.

Is it better if I should install it in the root primary partition C drive? I installed this way as my C drive tends to fill up quickly.

Everytime I start my computer each day and open Renegade (everytime for nearly the past 2 years believe it) my HDD drive starts going crazy and begins going crazy. I am guessing it is some I/O process or something.

It affects my game too as even the Renegade menu seems to have frame rate issues and in-game is HORRIBLE. I normally close everything and leave my machine for five minutes and then everything works like a charm.

I don't remember having these issues on the same machine when I had Renegade installed on C drive.

btw, this happens SOMETIMES with the other game I have installed (Oblivion: Elder Scrolls). I have it installed the same way as Renegade on D drive.

any hints? To try to solve this issue, I made sure no AV scans are running or any background programs or malware.

Either the second hard drive is not configured properly, or it is just to slow to deal with running games.

I tried to run Skyrim of a external 2TB HDD(USB = slow), took me about 1 and a half minutes to load up.

Yeah, I definitely think the secondary partition install is causing some problems.

I have defragmented all my HDD's (took half a day!) and ran system cleanup. I will see if this lowers or eliminates the issues over the next few days.

found out the source of the problem!

It was my Symantec Endpoint AV that was making the HDD go crazy. I suspected this was so four months ago and disabled auto scans but I guess it did not work.

So I uninstalled the sucker and downloaded MSE instead. My entire comp is smooth as anything and had many great games today for the first time in years without the horrible HDD read/write sound and frame skips!
