Symptoms

Warp bootup seems to take much longer than expected, with much more disk activity.

Hardware

  Any.

Problem

  WPS Desktop Settings notebook accidentally left enabled.  This
  results in the entire WPS desktop being archived each time Warp is
  booted before the user gets control.  This can easily add several
  minutes to the boot process.


Fix

  Open the Desktop Settings notebook to the index tab marked Archive
  and un-check the box marked "Create archive at each system
  restart".


Notes

  In general, you shold only make archival copies of the Desktop
  after making large changes to it or at reasonable intervals (say
  every few days).
