The performance can be enhanced through power Management - In major PCs, Vista’s power is set to “balanced” mode, in this mode the min & maxi processor states are set to 5%/100%. At this case, CPU performance goes below its regular utilization norm. So at this case, it is recommended to switch over High Performance plan or change the actual settings between 50-100%. You can do the required settings by going into Advance Setting Options. Secondly, proper Indexing - The best method to optimize the WMC is by proper indexing; in default case Vista’s files are stored inside the hard drive for fast searching. Here the problem is with HTPC case, so it is advisable to disable indexing while pen drive operations. Keep the recorded files in separate drive.
