What type of this HDD Problem ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello folks
I have 500GB HDD, I used it about 3-4 years but when I noticed the following problem I took it out and kept it in a safe place (about 4 years from now) until I decided to let the HDD take another chance today (God Plans),

The problem:
I can get full constant write speed of 160MB/S but the read speed is very slow it starts from 300 KB/S to 10-12 MB/S for a couple of seconds and it goes higher up to 30 MB/S then it drops again to 200 KB/S and so on,

How to troubleshoot this problem, any chance to let the HDD live again ?

The best way to check disk health is with CrystalDiskMark. It's a piece of free software the reads disk health and can help verify a potential issue, I would start there.

 

EDIT: Make sure any important data is copied off the HDD in question, in case of failure.

did you defrag the drive?

Yes, I have the drive in one piece , also I did a slow formatting for the entire disk (it took more than 24 Hours), same result 

I am wondering if this a sector failure issue, I will check also
