  1. Try Windows Focus Logger to see what has focus. If something else steals focus from a game or even Windows Explorer the app will log and identify the culprit. http://www.adminscope.com/downloads/window-focus-logger/

    Copying Files

    Windows will (should) queue up your file transfers, but to answer your question 1 file at a time is usually faster.
  3. MX500 is pretty solid. If you get that it will last you a long time. I used the 480GB version before I gave it away with my old PC. In the eshop that I use I found several complaints about the P1 and it's longevity. The X3 I don't know much about it but I have some doubts about it as well. One thing I can say for certain is that the MX500 will fulfill your needs and it will be reliable. As for the X3, I cannot find any information regarding TBW rating but if you want to save 25$ then go for it I guess. Should last a good while if it is decent.
  4. If it is cheaper than the MX500 then go ahead I suppose. P1 is using QLC memory. QLC memory slows down when you write large files to it (not that you probably notice when it comes to installing games). I have two QLC SSD in RAID and they work perfectly fine with games so P1 should also be fine for games. I haven't tried it for myself though.
  5. Well since games often consist of a vast amount of tiny files, don't expect any insane speed when transferring all the time but NVMe will in some cases be faster unless there is another bottleneck. For loading games any SSD should be fine. Obviously I haven't tried all the solid state drives out there but even the Kingston A400 was better than a spinning drive. MX500 is good and will last a long long time while being cheap.
  6. Granted, weather is now sunny and warm everywhere but as a result of this all the water evaporates due to global warming. I wish for unlimited download speed.
  7. For games you will not notice any difference. What takes time when loading games these days is the connecting to servers and the eternity of splash screens. If you want to transfer large files back and forth then yes, a NVMe drive outclasses SATA but games don't even fully utilize SATA bandwith. I launched Shadow of the Tomb Raider which is installed on my NVMe and during loading it was sitting between 150-200 MB/s while the drive is good for 2000 MB/s so as I said for loading games you won't see a difference.
  8. Crucial MX500 has a reasonable price and you won't notice any difference between that and NVME when it comes to gaming. If money is not an option get two MX500 drives and put them in RAID 0. I recommend 1TB version or higher (even if you RAID), size of games these days.. through the roof man.
  9. If you got loads you can sell them. The returns wont be great but I dunno.... done this a couple of times ...not gonna say it was worth it really.. but why not?
  10. If it is USB it is Micro, but I don't think it is since it looks too large. Probably proprietary if Micro USB don't fit.
  11. I can't see how that would be a problem. It is a powerful uninstaller (haven't tried the free version much though).
  12. Banned for being scared of the mods. (Admins are the scary ones)
  13. Because in Vista it deleted ALL my files on the hard drive? Yeah may still be something left, not that I have seen personally but CCleaner may cause issues so it's best to back stuff up before removing. I've just stopped using it completely, even if there are leftovers in the registry with a modern PC and modern Windows it is not a problem. REVO I mostly use if something is misbehaving.
  14. Banned for not realizing that my launcher is Chinese master class.
