Why do other
programs stop responding while transferring files with this application?
BurstCopy uses the
hard-drive in an exclusive fashion (i.e. at its true potential) in order
to attain maximum performance. This will usually cause other hard-drive
intensive applications to start slower, and be less responsive when accessing
This however can be
easily remedied. The Idle Time setting has been implemented to counter
just this undesired effect. It represents a period during which the application
will pause itself in order to allow other programs exclusive hard-drive
access. This goes to say that an Idle Time setting of 100 will cause the
application to do nothing for 100 milliseconds (0.1 seconds) each second.
