Hi,

My Kazaalite suddenly started causing my HD to work non-stop, and it began also taking some 80% of the resources on my machine (Pentium II 350MHZ, Win2K SP II). I have no idea as to what might be causing it. I did decide to add 2GB files to the files I share just before it happened, but, well, it shouldn't make the HD work all the time, right? And cancelling the sharing did not solve the problem.

Anybody has any idea why this is happening?

hi daniel,are you talking about the drive light being on constantly or hard drive "chatter"?
if its the latter you could try placing your "my shared folder" on another partition or drive if this is possible.
i had the same,almost constant grinding,i had to move it to another drive and now its ok.
possible cause could be the drive on its last legs:mad:

This also happened to my computer P4 1.8G! It is not the speed of the computer. Definitly! i recommend doing a system restore, or delete Kazaa and reinstall. It worked for me!

Hey,

Steve, what are you trying to do, give a man a heart attack?
:)

Isn't there some anti-Murphy law of nature stating that no more than 50% of your hardware can go at once?
Ach...

In any case, if I can trust my gut instincts, it's not my youthful drive that is at fault. Will try moving the uncompleted DLs, uninstalling & reinstalling.
