This is all ancient history now, I know, but thought I'd let anyone interested know for the record that there is no doubt the culprit for all the speed issues I have had is definitely the HDD in my laptop. I was recently using Calibre on my USB3 portable and to my delight everything mentioned in this thread whizzed along as it should! So now Calibre resides on the USB drive - not altogether convenient but also quite a good thing in that my library is now portable.

The abysmal (ABYSMAL!!) drive speed doesn't noticeably affect anything else I use, but it's agonizing using Calibre for anything beyond 2/3-book library modification/maintenance. Seriously, what's the use of Toshiba making a fast i7 machine then reducing it's functionality to WWII standards with the drive in it!!?

have you checked the S.M.A.R.T. status of the drive?

I have now - thanks for the suggestion. I ran Crystal Disk Info and everything checks out. Having Calibre on the portable is really fine, many advantages, so I won't pursue this hard drive thing any further - SSD prices gave me palpitations!

SSD's are way cheaper than my FIRST MFM (5.25" 1/2 height) HD. US$425 for 40 MB (yes, Megabytes) Seagate.
But yes for the price of 6T of drives, you can get 1 small SSD

Yes, my gosh. I might pop one in at some stage, but right now I am actually enjoying my $60 1TB USB3 drive.

My first computer in the early 90s was an Osborne portable which cost $5K, which included a state of the art dot matrix printer ... whoohee! I try to remind myself of those CPM and BASIC when I get tight about peripherals.
