Default Windows slow when I copy and paste in the HDD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a Crucial M4 128gb (SATA II), in it I have installed Windows, and then I have a 1TB HDD (Samsung HD103SJ), and in it I have installed games.

The problem is that when I copy and paste a folder (for example) from the HDD to another directory on the same HDD, everything is going very slow. And do not understand why, It should not affect the performance of the OS, right? I have the OS on the SSD!

Normal is what I get?

As far as I am aware if you are "MOVING" the file then it should be instant but if you are "COPYING" the file then it will take time. How long will depend on the performance of the drive.

I could be wrong but that is what seems to happen in my experience.

I dont think the OP means that the copy operation itself is going slow, but that Windows itself slows down to a crawl.

Sounds like whatever bus controls the sata ports is getting saturated, if thats even possible. In other words, the copy operation on the HDD is choking the communications on the SSD.

Maybe try switching some sata ports around.

Let's see ... I have an SSD and HDD.

The SSD I have installed OS.

In the HDD I have installed in this case games.

My problem is that if I copy and paste a folder (in this case 14GB) to another directory (within the same HDD), the performance of the entire PC (remember that I have the OS on the SSD) low me a lot, going very slow.

When I copy and paste the folder, the copy / paste is going to 50MB/sec.

Make use of the HDD that is completely independent of the OS should not make me come down computer performance ... do not you think?

Indeed, it occurs to me. frown.gif

Ah. My bad. I misunderstood what you meant.

Could you fill out your rig details in your sig (can be found on your profile page). This may help us get to the cause. Saturated ports may be an issue but would depend on your hardware and what ports you are plugged in to.

I tried to put the HDD in SATA port 4 and the same thing happens to me ... however, I have come to put in IDE mode, and I do not lower performance. This means that saturates the SATA bus to have two hard drives: S

Glad it's working better now, but surely 2 drives wouldn't saturate the bus. I mean, you need at least two drives to do RAID.

Unless your SSD is just that fast.

My SSD is fast... this is a benchmark (my motherboard is SATA2. My SSD is limited to SATA 2)

Try using TeraCopy and see if that improves anything.
