- Troubleshooting slow SSD 1 answer
I have a windows based computer with a SSD that I use for work (software development). The computer was issued to me by my employer and it's close to three years old now. As time has gone on in the last year, the computer has been giving me problems which are now getting much worse. The problem is mainly that it's just "slow" (slower than it was before). Slow to start programs, slow to save files, etc.
I recently ran NovaBench on it and found that the hard drive write speed is 31 MB/s. This seems to be far under par for a SSD (which I'm confident the computer has). (NovaBench Hardware Test Score 11)
Is slowing write speed indicative of a failing SSD drive?
Using NovaBench on a different computer with the exact same processor, the marks were all the in the ballpark except the hard drive. This other computer has a traditional HDD and that drive read 103 MB/s write speed. (NovaBench Hardware score 26).
