Basic Disk or Dynamic Disk?
I recently upgraded my DAW (SONAR XL 2.2 to SONAR4); & the new version is a heavily graphic laden CPU hog, which causes operation to be, well...very sluggish. I was told by another upgrader that I may be able to help the problem a great deal by running the program off a dedicated partition.
I was looking through some Windows XP documentation; & learned that I can create a new Partition on a Basic Disk (from unused space); & a new Volume on a Dynamic Disk.
How do I determine which type of disk I have (Basic or Dynamic)?
& which is a better way to go (if possible to have either one)?
