[SOLVED] HDD gotten extremely slow

If you haven't already, try defragging the drive. 

Check its health with software like CrystalDiskInfo. 

Is the drive under warranty?

Hi,

Over the last few days, I've noticed that Overwatch loads very slow - character models take a few minutes to load, as well as the game's menu and pretty much everything else.

I've just checked my HDD's Read speed with HD Tune and the result is a miserable 4.5mb/s maximum (3.7mb/s minimum). All my HDDs are similar models except for their capacity and the others get a read speed of around 145mb/s max so something is wrong here. I have just freed a bunch of stuff from the HDD so it now has 2TB free out of 3.81TB. What else can I do, other than replacing it?

 

Thanks.

 

EDIT: Solved! Turns out a process related to Plex, that checks the HDD for changes in order to update the library, was using 160mb/s of read speed constantly. Changed some Plex settings and it's fine now, HDD is back up speed.
