System Scan

Here is my latest virus scan results:
Summary No Infections Found
Scan Time 1 hour(s) 41 minute(s) 21 second(s)
Scanned Files 596,878
I only comment on this because I have my scan set to run while I am at lunch. It used to be the case that when I returned from lunch that the scan was complete, but this is no longer true. As the amount of data I store grows, the time it takes to scan the data is also growing. The only limit to my data growth is my data storage capacity (currently at 500 GB; dual 250 GB internal). Mike recently IM'd me a link to the Lacie Bigger Disk External hard drive with a storage capacity of 1 terabyte (1,024 gigabytes). As hard drives get bigger the amount of data we store on them will only grow as well, and the time it takes for performing functions such as searches, formatting, defraging, scanning, mirroring, and creating back-ups will only get longer and longer.

*sigh* if only the access times would improve in lockstep with the size of the HD, then these problems wouldn't exist nearly as much. Tho to make things like Defrags and stuff faster, you could use a RAID. If the virus scanner/defragger was smart enough it could make all your Disks scan at the same time, thus taking that much less time to scan. Tho I'm not sure if Virus scans/Defrags are smart enough to do this, or they just scan sequentially through each file, so only a few disks are spinning at a time. Well there's my thought for the day, enjoy.
