    The data inside user profile is aroungd 2 GB .
    including my documents , Local Seting etc
    But when i moved it to D drive its working remarkably good.
    It seems that if the profile is too heavy the computer perfomence degrades

    have you got enough drive space on your c: before moving your profile across.

    the only thing i can think of it disk access speeds. its reading data of both drives which is faster than reading it off just one drive...

    Space is not a constrain
    We work with IBM pc with 35 gb C:/ & 70 Gb D:/
    And around 24 gb is free on C drive
    I found that the user was loading ALL mP3 on his My music folder
    and lot of pictures in his my Pictures
    Plus he had like big temp internet files

    Lan diconnection is surely increasing performance
    But still if i move the data out of the user profile in Docs& Setting and paste in C: itself , i can see increase in performance

    There is some connection between the Data size in Profile folder & speed of system.
    I assume its consuming more memory

    Do you use roaming profiles or any sort of folder redirection?

    No Simon
    We dont use roaming profiles

    No folder redirection also

    Only we map the various Data drives centrally to users using Group policy settings
