  1. Weird Problem: HDD Performing VERY Slow!


    Hi all,

    I've been wanting to replace this 2TB internal HDD for a long time now but the Covid19 Crisis has really given me so many extra tasks to do and so I've had to focus on other tasks instead of replacing this 2TB internal HDD.

    What's strange is that even when I put the HDD under as much strain as I can and look at Task Manager it only reaches 20% usage in the "Disk Column": I'm running multiple apps and having many windows/tabs open in Firefox, running an "Error Scan" in the App called "HD Tune".

    No matter what I try it only gets to a maximum of 20% in the "Disk Column" of Task Manager.

    What does this mean??? *Shock

    I'm running Windows 10 2004 with all updates installed.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I just did a scan using the App "SeaTools" by Seagate and I did a "Short Test" and it got up to 90% but says that it failed the test...

    This is the App I'm using:
    SeaTools | Seagate Support US

    :)

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.

    Weird Problem: HDD Performing VERY Slow!

    Win10 Slow boot time. Help debug with Windows Performance Analyzer

    Hi,

    I think that the issue is caused by the "Generic HDD SCSI Disk Device" driver


    Weird Problem: HDD Performing VERY Slow! [​IMG]


    you have 8 disk drive attached to your computer:
    1. Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500GB
    2. Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB
    3. ST4000DM004-2CV104
    4. TOSHIBA DT01ACA200
    5. WDC WD20EARX-008FB0
    6. Generic HDD SCSI Disk Device
    7. Seagate BUP BK SCSI Disk Device
    8. Kingston DT Elite G2 USB Device

    I would suggest you uninstall the Generic driver from the device manager;
    • Open device manager and display the hidden devices;
    • Generic "HDD SCSI Disk Device" under disk driver and uninstall it.
