Why my ssd has slow sequential write

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I was trying to review my ssd today for a new install and I used gparted and AS SSD to see how my performance was. Shockingly, I discovered how slow my ssd is at sequential write. Gparted has also detected bad sectors in this drive so I have a few problems on my hands if this is true. Can anyone confirm this?



Can someone suggest a program to scan my drive for problems also?

In cmd run sfc /scannow

Also run chkdsk

Any NTFS file compression or drive encryption enabled?

Try this?

1.) Go to Device Manager in Windows.
2.) Right-click on your drive and select Properties.
3.) Click on the Policies tab.
4.) If "Enable write caching on the device" is checked then un-check it, click ok, re-check it, click ok.
5.) Run AS-SSD again and see if that helps.

It actually was check. Though I unchecked it ,this did not fix the problem.

In Windows Explorer, if you right click on that SSD, and click Properties, look at the General tab. Is "Compress this drive to save space" checked?

When you wrote, "... review my ssd today for a new install", that sounds like you've had this SSD for a while. How much free space is on it? What OS are you using?

I bought the ssd in June/ July but didn't plug it in until September when I got all my parts. It is not compressed and I installed windows 7 in this drive. I have 185gb of free space so far. This drive is a 256gb.

If your SSD is not compressed, and is not encrypted, then it might have a problem as you mentioned in your first post. Do you have any program to display the SSD's SMART data? Search on "SMART monitoring" to find some free tools to read your drives SMART data, which may indicate problems.

You could also try "SSD Life", another free program.

I'll perform a chkdsk tomorrow as well as do what you just asked. I'll report back tomorrow.

Uninstall the Intel Rapid storage tech driver, sometimes it can cause this issue.

Sadly I just tried this and there's no difference.
