Quote from: DeadHead on April 04, 2011, 12:02:03 PMYes, my machine runs Win7 64 bit, and the disk in question is an external WD USB harddisk.I had to manually set the i/o priority, since it seems high i/o load won't trigger a restraint afaik? Not sure I would like it to anyway, I'm quite happy with setting this manually! Perhaps there's some other way to get the same result with PL, I'm not sure.

Besides the harddisk, I have my mouse, keyboard and two flashmemory (readyboost) sticks connected to the usb ports on the back.The extraction software I use is WinRar, and what I did was to set i/o priority to very low for this process. Extraction most likely takes a bit longer, but to me it's worth it to have a responsive os while the extraction takes place. Besides the longer extraction times, I've seen no other "bad" issues from this change so far.I like the idea behind this software, and my experience so far has been a very positive one, so I went ahead and purchased the Process Lasso Pro Entire Home Bundle, so I can install it on my four computers here.Good to see you're feeling better, and looking forward to the next version!

Quote from: jeremy.collake on April 07, 2011, 06:37:44 PMAs for the quite likely unrelated question about SATA/eSATA/USB(2?). My observations of USB 2 are that it isn't bad, though the bus CAN become overwhelmed if you have a lot of devices on it. USB3 may improve things. eSATA doesn't have this issue as it is faster and dedicated to a single device per port. If the USB bus is somehow the problem, then I/O priorities would not be of much assistance I don't think. I'd recommend moving 'real-time' input devices like keyboards and mice to a different USB controller perhaps. Their commands pre-empt those of other commands on the USB bus, to provide real-time response.Thanks for the support and I hope to have a much improved new beta out very soon!
Quote from: petrossa on April 11, 2011, 06:22:21 AMSorry to hear about your health. Best wishes.I do have about 10 usb devices and PL Management Console all beta's kept on crashing at startup. I added in TaskScheduler a delay of a couple of minutes. No more crashes since days now.
