    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.

    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
