There seems to be confusion about your name.

More interesting would've been the moin version.

It is recommended that you use latest 1.9.x or 1.8.x version, preferably
the 1.9.x. Besides bug fixes, you also should have latest version due to
security fixes.

What type of filesystem is it on C:? NTFS?

Do you use moin ... maint cleansessions from time to time?

See moin maint cleansessions --help.

Well, if it was on FAT32, i would say "for sure!".

Don't know how good NTFS copes with many files, but it should be better
than FAT32.
