Hi Bikeman, was just going to post and saw your post, looked at a validated task ABP2, they are called?
Noticed this checkpointing again look at this WU!

Yes, write to disk=0, will change that, should make some difference. :)
And very certain, overwritten local, too.
Had thought of that a little late.

[ADDED]Takes up (a lot)of time and destroys my disks :)

The usual setting for checkpointing to disk would be like every 60 seconds. If you do it more ofter, it's degrading performance and it's annoying to have the extra disk activity.
