    A bad partition in you physical drive maybe that after you delete and re-create it, you managed to install Hardy.
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.
