Very Slow Write Speeds on my Drives

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For a while now I've been having issues when installing games to either of my hard drives. The download and installs will start off fine with the drive achieving 8+ MB/s but after a while it drops to tens of KB/s or less (disk activity goes to 100% on the drive being used and I've seen the disk queue climb to more than 2 mins). I have been unable to diagnose any problems with the disks using crystal disk and the software provided by Seagate and Kingston (on their website) however I've attached the results of a passmark drive test below. I haven't noticed the dip in performance on the SSD (my C drive) but I suspect it is effected by the issue because of the attached results. Any suggestions on what might be causing my drives to write so slowly. Thanks in advance.


My Setup is below:
Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit

Gigabyte Z390 UD LGA 1151 Z390 Chipset ATX Motherboard (F7 bios)

32GB (4x8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4 3200MHz Dual Channel Memory
9th Generation Intel Core i5 9600K 3.7GHz Six Core Processor
COOLER MASTER MASTERWATT 650W PSU

PALIT GEFORCE RTX 2060 STORM X
KINGSTON A400 960GB SSD
2 * SEAGATE BARRACUDA 2TB 6GB/S 3.5"

Both the Seagate and Kingston software designed to access the health of the drives has come back with the drives as healthy as has crystal disk (sorry should have mentioned that above)
