    Ntfs Performance Tweak

    When Windows NT lists a directory (Explorer, DIR command, etc.) on an NTFS volume, it updates the LastAccess time stamp on each directory it detects. If there are a very large number of directories, this could effect performance. A new registry entry allows you to control this behavior.

    First :Back up your registry - Back up tools here
    Open the registry - Start > Run and type regedit
    Navigate to Here : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE//System//CurrentControlSet//Control//fileSystem
    Create a new key called NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate by right clicking in the right window , and choosing New > DWORD Value.
    Once that key is created, double click on it and change the value from 0 to 1
    Reboot and enjoy the speed

    Or just download the registry entry file, unzip and right click - choose merge.

    ENJOY,

    I have those options in Tweak-XP checked, along with disable name creation, but I've never really felt any difference.
