CPU 100% when moving large files

Running Suse 11.1 Linux 2.6.27.19-3.2-default x86_64 KDE4.1.3
Core 2 Duo e6750 OC’ed to 3.2 | 4 Gigs of ram Abit P35 Pro motherboard
Has been running XP for over a year 1/2 no problems.

Have 3 SATA ( AHCI mode ) drives on Intel ICH9R

Fresh install, only installed Nvida drivers, wine and Vmware 6.5 so far. No encryption on the disk.

When copying from C: (old windows NTFS) to D: ( Suse 11.1 ) the CPU goes to full 100%. Swap and memory usage are low. Only time CPU goes full, no other problems any other times. Unable to use Firefox until transfers have completed. Files move from drive to drive quickly

Not sure what is causing it to use all the CPU. Is it a driver problem or improperly configured hardware? Not sure where to start looking.

I think I saw this in another forum, and it sounds like it may be an NTFS
driver issue. Considering NTFS’s renown for performance it’s not that
surprising to me.

Good luck.

Yes you are correct, Thank you for the reply.
CPU at 100% when coping files - openSUSE Forums

You could try to defragment the NTFS disk from within Windows and then try to copy the files.
