There wouldn't be compressed files like zip files in the root of C: would there? This tends to slow down Windows Explorer.
Also when you have defragged, often a third-party tool will allow you to optimize as well. Have you tried this?

I just thought maybe Windows is trying to assign a drive letter to that partition, then getting confused when it finds the partition is in some format other than NTFS/FAT. If the other identical one works fine then it's probably not that.

- Rep Power
Boot up in Safe Mode with Networking...is the slowness still there? If it is not use MSCONFIG to disable services/start up programs (all of them), then slowly reintroduce them logically testing each time - something here will be causing it. If it's there in safe mode, I'll need to think more
