Read speeds dropping dramatically on older files; benchmarks needed to confirm affected SSDs - Page 45

I will probably have to bust out my dusty 120 GB Sandisk SSDs while I'm throwing EVOs at Samsung, so it would be good to know since I want to have a few more demanding apps on my SSD boot drive for work stuff.

@Funkatronic No worries, I just thought having some more data on there would give us a better idea on how the drive as a whole would handle them. More data==More data. It's kind of cool having someone from the other side of the planet participating in the rabble. thumb.gif Your English is pretty good, you work for an American or British company?

 

The swap file and page file are terms that are often used interchangeably.

 

Anyway, Windows 7 and 8 still take advantage of the Page File even if you have way more memory than you will ever need.

 

http://lifehacker.com/5426041/understanding-the-windows-pagefile-and-why-you-shouldnt-disable-it

 

So, set it for about 1 GB - or maybe even 5. Experiment with different sizes. You can certainly disable it if you want and you might never have any issues (I never did), but I put it back and set it to 1 GB simply because of this article.

It is my first language, after all.

Also, I would have put more data on my SSD (the steam folder, actually) but the amount of times Steam updates the client, not to mention the numerous TF2 updates one gets, I'd rather not hammer my ssd with that many writes. (Yes, the amount of tiny and not so damned tiny updates to TF2 can make someone lose it)

Alright then, I can see why you would do that.

OT- I actually know that there are a good portion of Indians that are fluent in English because my wife works for an Indian company here in Indiana (ironically named state). She is a coordinator between the Indiana customer and the technical writers in New Delhi. So she has many coworkers who are Indian. That's pretty cool that you're on this forum. Send me a pm if you want to know more. BTW- when do you sleep? It's got to be 3 or 4am there. sleepysmiley03.gif

Haven't been by for a while, thought I'd post today's scan...

Things are not looking good, the whole drive is slowing down noticeably in the past month or so. Here's my aggregation of about 10 data points, starting the day I installed the firmware fix. This is the same EVO 500G that I've posted about all along, my daily driver (I have not been keeping track of any of the other dozen Samsung SSDs in the office).

@Haswelled What is this sleep you speak of?

@Techie007 If you don't mind me asking, do you have the same username on other tech forums? Say TE?

    Yes, this is the only name I have used on other Tech forums.  On one, I had to add an "L" since it wouldn't accept it otherwise.

Nice job compiling it all into an animated GIF. thumb.gif The firmware fix has not worked for me either.

The firmware didn't fix it for anyone, and Samsung is working on figuring out why. If they do or when they do, they will release new firmware. In the meantime, they are working on adding the Performance Restoration to Samsung Magician and they'll release that new version of Magician when it's ready.

 

So, since the new firmware doesn't fix the problem, the Performance Restoration part that took place after the firmware update was just a temporary fix.

 

In the meantime, we can restore performance using the "Data Disk Monthly" script in MyDefrag. Or, we can use Puran DiskFresh. Please see this post by Techie007 for more information about which one you should use:

If/when Samsung releases a new version of Magician that has the Performance Restoration feature, I don't really know if I would recommend using it instead of MyDefrag or DiskFresh. Why? Because ever since I used the Performance Restoration tool, a few things have been screwed up, and I've been unable to figure out why or what to do about them (some things seem permanent). Therefore, if/when I notice my performance degrading again, I will be using either MyDefrag or DiskFresh, depending on what's best for me at the time.

That's what I hear! I'll be using MyDefrag though because my drives aren't full enough for me to be comfortable using it. Fortunately, MyDefrag's "Data Disk Monthly" script seems to work perfectly too.
