First is there an option to prevent Raptr reading my hard drive at the maximum read rate every time I load it?
Secondly is this is not an option what is it not as it is a stupid feature to make a not needed piece of software increase the time it take me to play games from 1-2 minutes to 15-20 minutes. I like the features of Raptr but having my hard drive spinning as fast as it can every time I turn my PC on is stupid enough to make me install it.
Well it sounds like it's not working as intended. Raptr typically has very little pull on your HD. From a fresh boot, Raptr (or AMD Gaming Evolved) should only take about 1 minute max, typically it starts up in less than 15 seconds. It sounds like it's constantly trying to re-read your entire library, do a game scan, check for drivers etc.
Do you have to re-login everytime Raptr starts? Is it rescanning everything? Does it come up with any kind of error?
