Is my hard drive dying?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i have a wd blue 2tb drive, i bought it around this time last year and recently when i was trying to load up a game it was awfully slow and took way longer than normal, i ran the crystal disk mark bench mark to see the speed and these speeds seem really slow even for a hard drive. does anyone know whats going on?

Run CrystalDiskInfo for the S.M.A.R.T. details that'll usually tell you if something is wrong and more specifically what is wrong.
Seems very likely the drive is dying though if it's significantly slower. Good news is you can get a replacement through WD as it still under warranty (2 years for Blues).
