the last i checked it was only using 1 core. while it does have code to support 2 cores. HFS i have found is more ram resource intensive than CPU intensive.

sometimes you may have to tell task manger to use more than 1 core:

set priority and affinity setting of the task...

i've alwasy found processor hacker a beter tool than widnwos built in task manger:
