I run an Ultimate Defrag every month, on the drive where my Horizon photoscenery is the sole occupant.

Which reminds me; I must move the backup AG files from that drive, then do a defrag. Thanks for the reminder

Could it be that FSX, is not fully releasing resources. It does take a while to shut down.

Tho saying that, my machine seems to be getting slower to shut down, even without having run FSX.

I have been using a defrag tool which goes deeper than the $S version, a pocket one that runs from a memory stick, in fact I have a whole batch of utils on that stick.

I've got two machines, this one and the FSX machine. There's quite a
difference in the times the two setups take to shut down, On this one
it's done and dusted in seconds, whereas the FSX machine can take about
a minute. That's having first shut down FSX of course.

Having done something daft earlier, the FSX machine had to be rebooted.
Having been dragged away to look at New Tricks, well the well
upholstered blond, I didn't fire up FSX. When I shut the system down,
just now, it was virtually instantaneous.

Is there something about FSX that ties up resources even after it's been
