How to Speed Up Folder Access

How to speed up folder access on your computer. Why you need to speed up folder access? In my opinion, you need to do that if you have a lot of folders and sub directories on your computer. Because when you access a directory, your windows system will wastes a lot of time updating the stamp showing the last access time for that directory. So you need to disable access update to stop your computer from doing this. Follow these steps to speed up folder access by disable access update on your computer.

1. Click on RUN, type Regedit in the open box and then click "OK".

2. Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > CurrentControlSet > Control > FileSystem

3. Create new DWORD Value called NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate by right-click in a blank area of the window on the right and then select DWORD Value.

4. Double click on "NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate", change the value data to 1 and then click OK.

That's All.
