I just finished re-installing xp on one of my friends laptops...

It was extremely messed up and had a ton a viruses, malware and disc errors, soo now it's brand spanken new!

Of course he needed some files backed up before the format, so I saved all his music to a USB...

I booted in safe mode (figuring I would avoid extra processes that would slow down the flash drive)

It took 3 HOURS to back up his lousy 12 GIGS OF MUSIC!

Now that im on a fresh version of xp I dragged his music back on the flash (to see how long it would take this time) and it only took 12 minutes?

So what was the HUGE SLOW down? Was it safe mode?
