Disk Overload problem - what fixed it for ME


Recommended Posts

I have found that once I got a disk overload, the only way to get rid of it was to not just exit Utorrent, but you have to go into task manager and END the process (ctrl+alt+del).

When you start Utorrent again, the disk overload problem will be gone TEMPORARILY, but that isn't much help.

My fix was to do this:

After restarting Utorrent, change the PRIORITY of the utorrent task to ABOVE NORMAL as soon as you can. Since doing that, I haven't had another problem. Now, of course you will have to set that priority everytime you start Utorrent. I am sure there is a way to make that priority level stick, but I haven't bothered to do that yet. I think that the utorrent program can set that level itself... and it should. I wouldn't recommend going to realtime, because that will take all the cpu resources from other programs you are running. NORMAL doesn't seem to be enough to satisfy the needs of Utorrent. I should be upgraded to one of those permanent PLUS accounts for finding this out!
