OS is installed on SSD and the second HDD is just a storage for games. I have it for 4-5 years already and never had a problem with it. Sometimes I do benchmarks to monitoring my system's health but few days ago when I did another bench it said that my HDD's read/write speed dropped down much.
This is what I had before http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/5707192
And this what I had for last few days http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/5776513
It became 2-3 times slower than it was suddenly!
I have all drivers up-to-date as long as all windows 10 updates. I did not do any soft/hardware changes that can caused it. What i tried to do already:
- Checked SMART status in HDTune/AIDA64 - it is OK
- Did defragmentation
- Tried to change mb ports and SATA cabel
- The most important - tested an HDD on my sister's computer, nothing changed.
Because of it I think it is faulty hard drive, not OS/drivers/something else. Am I right? Or what can caused such changes? I really think to just buy a new one.
