Help anyone who can. I built system and was getting good sandra scores (60000 to 69000). I had OS on the RAID of course. I installed programs (rebooted many times) and still got same performance. Then I did a defrag from windows, rebooted, and when I ran sandra again, performance dropped to 44000. 44000!!!!!!!! I ran the benchmark several times and I keep getting the same result. I've reinstalled and reformatted several times, and after a while (I think after scandisk or defrag), my performance makes this huge drop. Anyone have any experience with that or any advice?

USe a good defragmentor. Forget that speed disk ftom norton utilities. The best defragmenting tool which I found is Diskeeper Workstation edition from Executive software. It increased my points in sandra arter boot time defrag and 4 consecutive defrags
