    on my Mac i have 2 profiles. one is my personal one, one is for Others. the Others profile runs much faster than my profile. Safari, Firefox, loads in a second. For my profile everything runs 5x slower. The only difference I can think of is the 110 GB of media files that I have in my profile. Would that make a difference? Is there a way to fix this other than removing the 110GB of files?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried asking/searching in the MAC forum?

    Does HGFS+ have a defragmenter? I don't care what the *nix fanboys say, on a single-user system defragmentation always helps, even if only a little bit.
