I have 2 SATA drives with the OS on 1 and data on the other. I have a spare IDE drive that I use for backup. What I would like to know is. Will the IDE drive now cause Windows 7 to run slow after the log-in screen? The reason I ask is that the time from login to usability has increased since adding the drive and adding JAVA. I have disabled the 1 file in JAVA that is recommended to disable, but my time is still long about 30 seconds compare to almost instant before.
