Edonkey causing windows delayed writing failed in SATA drive

  1. I need help, my hard drive is freezing up, and windows keeps alerting me that delayed writing fails, this happens everytime I run Donkey. I have tried everything to fix it: re-installing windows,drivers...etc, but nothing has resolved it....

    check for temp files may be running low
    move your temp files to another drive if you can
    the drive may be shutting dwn or if scsi set to wrong speed
    try even disable writ to cache
    P2p setting are problem area mor'n likly
    I don't use edonky I use azurous and cause my system has lots of memory and space I moved the cache and made it larger

    I found the problem, every time I try to copy large files from or to my 300 gb sata drive it freezes and the windwos delayed write failed message appears... I'm going to try to format the drive to see if it helps ...
