This is the machine I was using that had the challenges.
Windows 7 SP1 - 64 Bit
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1290 V2 3.70GHz
HD: 1.8TB (1.12TB Free)
I'll run the AS SSD Benchmark over the weekend and let you know the results.
Also regarding C: If we look at comparing the V8 to V9 I still finding the speed of the V8 database to be faster than the V9 database. I really like all the new features of V9, but overall I'm still finding that V8 (For me) out performs V9 in lots of case. I understand that V9 is beta, but some days it seems that V9 is lagging and I don't see the speed that is supposed be coming out of it yet. Mind you the last couple of builds I have seen some improvement.
All my other apps that I run on that machine don't seem to be impact at all, but V9 just has this lagging feeling.
