I'll do it

ps, please turn the sp2 support into a topic instead of a sticky so members can have their own threads to reolve issues

one sticky makes it hard to navidgate

thanx

PD reads the prefetch info to determine what are "boot files". When you install SP2, it clears out the prefetch info. Windows will slowly rebuild this info as the computer is used over a few days.

thanx greg...that's sort of what I thought...I'm wondering...don't you think it's a good idea to wait until prefetch is repopulated before a file optimization is performed?

that would prevent uneccessary file movement that would only have to be rewritten when the prefetch populated
