Hardware first, not linux...

Have you tried to download the utility for your make of HDD and see if there is a setting for HDD performance. There is such a program, HUTIL, for my Samsung 500GB HDD, allowing the setting of the seek mode to fast, middle or quiet.

If your HDD has such a setting, no linux program will exceed the hardware firmware limit.

You continue to post these one-liner questions, but you have not posted any follow-up on several of the earlier ones, including situations where people asked you to clarify your question.

In this case, you are repeating what we have reacted to before---i.e. you make no mention of having searched on Google---or what you found.

Please take this a friendly, informal, first warning:
1. Tell us what information you have already found---eg on Google
2. Post follow-up when you are asked for clarification.

thank you
