I am using Windows 7 64-Bit Home Premium with 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate Hybrid SSD drive.
Lately my system has slowed down painfully: listing file in a directory using Windows Explorer or any other program with standard Windows open dialog, takes sometimes as much as 30 seconds to list just contents of a directory. Restarting Windows sometimes makes it better and I've observed that at times when the problem is occuring, it occurs over and over till a reboot.
I've tried SeaTools to monitor SMART data of drive but it seems all OK. I've tried booting Linux and accessing files from there; performance seems to be satisfactory through Linux.
I'm confident that there is some piece of Software (either an application or some driver) that is causing issue on Windows. But I'm not sure exactly how to figure it out. I've tried Process Explorer but couldn't really figure out the bottleneck creator. Whats the best way to troubleshoot this?
