Is my storage HDD dying?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there,

So suddenly I experienced weird stuff with my storage HDD. Windows takes a lot of time to load and when it finally loads I get a message regarding page file.

 

My boot SSD seems to be working fine, I can run programs, games without problems, but accessing my storage HDD is super slow, opening files (e.g. images, pdfs etc.) may take like a minute or so. I tried switching up cables, but nothing changed. I tried running smart scan and I guess it doesn't look.
Is my HDD dying and should be replaced ASAP? Or are there other things at fault here?

Thanks!

Did put put the page file on yoru hdd? Don't do that you wnat the page file on the ssd

 

Can you show crystal disk info, but there seems to be pending sectors, and reallocated sectors, and that means the drive is probably near its end.

Sounds like it, check health with crystaldiskinfo.

Disable page file on it, and time to copy data off in order of importance ASAP.
